TTC 6th month

Postby Pinkdust26 » Wed Jul 05, 2017 12:05 am

Hi all,

Im currently on Cd 17, yesterday tested for O but negative. My CM is wet. Should I try today or wait till getting O. I am really worried. I am trying to relax but sometimes it is hard especially as I want a baby so bad. Sometimes I cry alone so I wont worry my husband. Sometimes I do not get alot of EWCM, maybe because I am stressing alot about it. I mean not everytime I wipe I see CM on tissue. Is this normal? Please help. Thanks

ttc is tough and gets tougher the longer you try. I don't produce much cm and I'm pregnant with my fifth. I think it is easier to tell when you are getting ready to ovulate with ALOT of cm but along as you have opks and are getting positive hopefully that is sufficient. I generally get wet cm instead of the stretchy ewcm. if your Dh is up for ALOT of bd go for it if he isn't then wait for your positive.

I consider myself to get a healthy amount of ewcm around O and it's not there every time I wipe. It's totally normal to only see evidence on the tissue after a bit or after not going to the bathroom for several hours. It's also not unusual to see a bunch of it for an hour or two, but not again for the rest of the day. Just check internally and if it feels slippery, you probably have more fertile cm than you think you do, it's just up near your cervix.

A couple of things that helped me see more ewcm were: increasing my water intake to 64 oz a day, and using a dose or two of Mucinex or robatussen to loosen mucous during my fertile window.

I know how hard it gets each month when things don't go as you hope. I hope that info helps people your mind at ease a little bit. Keep plugging away! <3

Your story is so heart touching and emotional. It really made me cry. Motherhood is a blessing. Every woman wishes for a perfect family. But sometimes it is not in fate as in mine. Hope everything goes right in your way. I was infertile. I was trying to conceive. Then I went to Europe for surrogacy with my Husband. I have a baby now.

Sorry to hear about what you are going through. Unsuccessful TTC is a very difficult phase. It requires a lot of patience. I hope you are strong enough for it. Do not give up. Do not lose hope. Wishing you best of luck for the future.

Hi. I know what you must be going through. I have also been through this phase in my life. We all do. But at the end of the day, we all survive. I hope you are doing okay. I hope you are trying to calm yourself down. Relax. Give yourself some time. Don't stress out, take a break. Go out. Have fun. Divert your mind from this. If it is meant to be, it will happen to you. But you should not overthink about it and lose yourself. I am sure your husband is supportive. Talk to him. And try again if necessary. You are going to be fine I promise. Just have patience darling.

Have you gotten checked by a doctor? Maybe there are some other issues getting in the way of conceiving. TTC is a very difficult task for many people. You're not alone in this. Don't feel alone either. I think you should get a professional consultation done. I would suggest looking into alternatives side-by-side as well. There's no harm in that. You'll actually be better prepared. Actually, there's a clinic that I'm quite fond of that coming to London soon! !8th and 19th of August for open days. I think you should definitely check it out. It'll help clear out a lot of confusion or fear! Stay strong!
