Hello! Newbie 33 TTC 1st time

Postby Elliebellie1983 » Mon Jan 02, 2017 10:52 pm

Hey everyone!

I'm sure you get lots of these intro posts so I'll keep it short.

My name's Ellie and I'm British but live in British Columbia, Canada. Just turned 33 and it's our first attempt at TTC since we got married 18months ago. I went off BCP about 6 months ago and have been half-assed charting (mostly to avoid any happy accidents as we weren't quite ready at the time).

Decided to give it a proper go over Xmas and trying not to get my first timer hopes up! Hoping this forum can give me some tips or at least kill some time until AF in 10 days!

Anyways lovely to meet you all!

Hi Ellie,
I'm in the same boat as you. Married recently and started to try and conceive over Christmas. This is our second cycle trying and the 2week wait begins today! I'm 34 so feeling a bit nervous with how long it will take, but keeping up the positivity!

Tips and tricks I've been using have been charting temperature, clean eating based on what phase my cycle is in. First cycle using preseed (I've heard so many success stories from using it)

Wish you all the luck! Baby dust! ❤

Good luck Ellie! I'm 35, TTC for the 1st time, on my 2nd cycle. Also a Brit, now living in Sweden. Been tracking using the Clue app for a year, so hopefully it will be somewhat accurate - we shall see!

I had been half-assing it too and now I'm totally regretting it. Each cycle, I'd get to about the point where I might be PG or around O and we wouldnt dtd and I'd stop keeping track because I felt there was no point for that cycle. Now this cycle has been one of the "everything's gone right" cycles, and I am wishing I had kept tracking just so I had something to compare it to.

Best wishes!! Try the Ovia app for cycle tracking & look into Stork OTC for a at home insemination cap style device.
