TTC Advice and Tips

Great Books That Got Me My BFP

Hi ladies, I just wanted to share two books that helped me get my BFP in my first cycle TTC. I'm not trying to be smug here, just helpful. They are 'The Impatient Woman's Guide to Getting Pregnant' by Jean M Twinge and also 'Trying to get Pregnant (and Succeeding)' by Marissa Peer, read reviews on for further evidence. The first one tells you everything you need to know about timing etc and the second one is about positive thinking. In fact it's so powerful you do feel pregnant just reading it! I'm 31 and was on bc pills for 13 years pretty much non-stop. I had one cycle off the pill but using condoms just so I could figure out my normal cycle timing. I then used the digital OPK and we BD'd the day of the first smiley face and the day after (also had EWCM there 2 days). Not much otherwise as DH was ill. Just got my BPF yesterday on 11 DPO!!!! Good luck ladies :)


I read (and loved) "The Impatient Woman's Guide" and because of your suggestion, I just ordered "Trying to get Pregnant (and Succeeding)". Thanks!

A couple of books I have read and enjoyed are Waiting for Daisy by Peggy Orenstein and The Gift of Life by Keily J. Adey. Congrats on your BFP!
