Beginning my first TWW. Need a buddy!

Postby MishishMosh » Fri Aug 09, 2013 12:54 am

My name is Rachel. I'm 25 and my husband and I are TTC my #1. I stopped BCP on July 26th. Had a short AF after that. Big O was supposed to be yesterday and we BD'd the last 4 days. Now my first ever TWW starts and I'm pretty sure I'm going to over analyze everything and possibly go nuts. I need a buddy to help me through this. Anyone else TTC a May baby?

I tested this morning but it was a BFN of course. I'll probably test again Tuesday morning. I've been officially TTC since January but have been off the pill since Feb 2012. We weren't being "careful" that entire time. I've been charting since then but this is the first time posting on here. We saw the fertility specialist last week and he said everything looks good. I had a miscarriage while on the pill 2 years ago so he said that since I've gotten pregnant before then I should be able to again. If I don't get pregnant this month then I'm starting Clomid and 3 cycles of IUI. So I'm really hoping that this is the month. Sorry for rambling lol.

Thank you. I heard good things about it too. Everyone says the chances are higher of having twins on clomid and IUI. Hoping to just have 1. My bf is scared enough with having 1 let alone 2.

My brother's GF is pregnant with his first and her 4th. But she was already showing at 9 weeks so we are pretty sure they're having twins. Plus she has twins in her family tree. I told him it was a blessing since she doesn't plan on having anymore and they are getting married, he gets two babies for his "first" :D

Hi Rachel! I'm also hoping for a May baby! This is my first time posting to the site. I'm 6dpo and I'm planning to test next Wednesday. This wait is killing me. This is the first month we've tried so fingers crossed! I hope everyone gets lucky!!

Hi Rachel -- I read your post & it reminded me of me, so figured I'd join in! I'm 26 (soon to be 27) and my husband is 29. I stopped the BCP in mid-May after being on it for 7 years. Hubby and I have been disappointed each month when AF arrives...and I'm trying to relax, hoping there isn't some underlying problem. I've got another week til AF is due again...feeling anxious...but reading everyone else's posts makes me feel a little better :) Good luck to you!!

Hi girls!

I am 28 and hubby is 29... I can't say we have been actively TTC, but since I am so disappointed every month when AF shows up, I think it's time! I am currently on CD 28... my regular cycle is 30 days. I have been testing negative, and definitely feel like AF is coming. :( The only reason I thought this was the month was because I had some weird bleeding on CD 16... I was SURE it was implantation bleeding. I guess it won't be too much longer till we find out! I never knew conception would take so much thought! Bought a pack of OPKs so next month going to try to figure out when I actually O as well as how long my LP is!

Baby Dust!
