Hey everyone! Glad you all came into our little group!

just an update on me since I haven't been on here for a while. I'm now 19 days late and completely crazy because I thought I had a bfp and treated the next morning and got a bfn.
It's all very frustrating. maybe I should just go to the dr.
on a happier note, dh and I are all prepared for my next cycle (whenever that may be lol)

I don't really have anyone to talk to in real life. I know my friends would be understanding but it's like they all got pregnant so quickly and most without even trying. I feel like they don't comprehend this horrible tww journey. And it makes me not want to talk about it with them. Good luck to you all!


I feel you! Every time I even try to talk to anyone about this in real life they say it wasn't that difficult for them. My sister has been pg three times and I'm sure she is over me asking her questions lol
But my mother was 33 when she finally got Pg with me after Dr's told her she would never have a baby, so idk maybe our family is made weird lol
the tww is awful, but I'm four weeks past ovulation with bfns still, so I'm a little extra crazy.

I just got my cross on FF so it's saying I'm 3dpo. Not sure if it's accurate but we'll see what's up the next couple days I temp... Seems like it might be which is really interesting cuz my temp shot up today. Either way I think we BD enough to catch it. Lol !

Well got my cross hairs today.
Idk if it's accurate and we're just gonna keep BDing throughout the end anyway. Lol according to the chart though I think we caught it

Hi ladies, mind if I join in? I'm trying for #1 and really none of my friends are at that point so I would love to have some people to talk to about it! I am 23, DH is 24 and this is our second cycle trying, but last cycle was more NTNP, this time I have OPK's and preseed and I'm just waiting to O. Really REALLY hoping for a positive this month.

Nothing new. Just got back from a vacation and I'm sick and have a fever. I didn't keep up with temping cuz I was all over the place but I'm back home now and will start up again tmrw. Hard to symptom spot when you're traveling but whatever happens I'll be happy.

Any body else have updates ?

Hi guys, mind if I join you? :)

36 years old (I know, old to be TTC#1, but that's how life has gone for me), lots of things impairing my fertility, but here we are, on our first TWW for a baby. I'm already going crazy! :rofl:

I'm not even sure if I ovulated, since I haven't been temping (only have a regular thermometer), but if the faint lines on my OPKs were a BFP, then I guess I did. (The packet says it's a + only if the lines are really dark...)

I'm on holiday, so I have plenty of time to obsess...
DH is 38, has no known fertility issues
I am 38, have PCO, dermoid cysts, very little ovarian matter left

Ugh got results. They were negative. Now my gyno wants to send me to an endo and I'm not sure if it's for reproductive issues or something else.
Super stressful.
Oh I hope you girls had great vacas! Wish I could go on one lol

BabyJayne: A regular one, huh? I thought you needed the extra digits, since the temp shifts might be so small. I guess I'll use the regular one next cycle if/when it comes. :)

So sorry to hear about the negative result, waiting4number1! It's better that the gyno wants to check you out, though. Hang in there!

Wakasa, yeah it's completely okay to temp with av regular thermometer. A basal thermometer I think just gets slightly more accurate results wroth a two digit decimal. Lol its really up to you and what you think is best.
I use a regular thermometer because ttc is expensive enough without a fancy thermometer lol

LOL, I guess I need to get familiar with temping, then. :) DH is still going to work, so I tend to wake up at the same time every morning, anyways... :D

What kinds of things are you all doing to make TTC expensive? I just switched my regular multivitamin to a prenatal one, and bought a couple of cartons of grapefruit juice for the early part of my cycle (thought it wouldn't hurt even if it didn't help). And a packet of OPKs (7 sticks) and an early result HPT. That's all, really.
