TTC #1 month 1

Postby FaithnHm » Sun Oct 12, 2014 8:42 am

Hi all!
Anyone else just start this journey?
A little about me... 28 will be 29 next month. DH is 29. I have been off BC since January. I started prenatal vitamins in May and had my check in appt with OBGyn. I started tracking temps with BBT and Fertility Friend in July. I found out I have a 34 day cycle. Will be O this next week and first official attempt at catching the egg!

Chime in one and all :)

Hey there. I'm with you! (Sort of!)My husband and I tried last year. I got pregnant after having sex once! Sadly I miscarried 4 weeks later. Then I tried again, got pregnant after the first try again, and had another miscarriage at 9 weeks. We have stopped trying for 9 months or so, and this month we decided to try again. I believed we timed it right again, but who knows. I am 2po and would love to obsess with you! I have been through this before so let me know if you have questions!

I am almost in the same boat. TTC #1 but this is my second cycle trying. First cycle, I didn't really know what i was doing. I was used to having a 28 day cycle and for some reason, my cycle changed to 36 days in September (obviously made me think i was pregnant because AF was so late.) So this month we used Preseed, OPK's and followed the Sperm Meets Egg Plan (almost) to a T! Now 5dpo and praying that this is our month! I previously had an IUD for two years (even though i have never had children before) and i removed it over a year ago.

Hi there, i'm new to this website and TTC, last month we kind of tried but we were travelling the two days when I had EWCM, this month I only had one day of EWCM but we managed to BD on that day. Id love to have some buddies to go through this experience with. Im 29 and my BF is 32. Im on my CD20 and reckon 3DPO. I really dont know what my chances are of getting a BFP are this month.

Pokerface, Kn1469, toffeebaby are any ofyou getting any symtoms or anything different from your regular cycles? I know its early days for me but I am sometimes aware of a faint ache on my right side where I ovulated,, apart from that sore breasts, i cant remember from last cycle whether this is normal this early on for me? I should keep a journal.

The sperm meets egg plan sounds good, I might follow that next month if need be.

Faithnhm any sign of O yet?

I'm 4dpo and counting! I think the earliest id dare test would be the 26th coz I also have a history of irregular cycles and am used to AF turning up very late :noaf: :noaf: :noaf2: :noaf2: :fertilization: :praying: :fingers crossed:

Ladies!!! I think i might have gotten a BPF!!! I tested tonight on a dollar store test and it was faint but positive. I posted a pick on the blog but here is one too. It's not a good pic and the site certainly doesn't help but it was positive.

I'll test again with another dollar store test in the a.m. (that's all I have) and if it is positve, I'll get a First Response. I'm only 8dpo.

Fingers crossed for the morning Kn1469, thats great you got a BFP so early, did you get any implantation bleeding? Im on cd23 and waiting for next sunday to test... the 26th.. have started checking my morning temp just out of curiousity, its been 37.1 celsius 98.78fh the past two mornings first thing, i guess thats a good sign if it stays like that but seeing as i dont know my normal bbt then its not much use. I still have sore boobs and slight cramping. Felt dizzy yesterday and then sick. Im used to having 'pregnancy' symptoms though so i take them with a pinch of salt. Welcome Teshia! What dpo are you? What day next week are you gonna test?

Kn1469 yay!! So exciting! Leave a baby dust trail for all of us!

So frustrated with temping this month! My high temp should have stayed high but so far it looks like the Rocky Mountains. Never seen this so no idea what to think. So far in looking it up online I have seen low progesterone levels and did not ovulate. Both not things I want to hear!!
