Since my husband gave us the go ahead…now all I can think about is getting pregnant. We’ve only been trying for less then a week, but I literally am counting down the days till I ovualte (according to my chart) so we can really try. Is anyone else going through this?

We’re not trying yet but when I read your post I thought how that is exactly how I will be when we start trying to get pregnant. Good luck and have fun!

I’m not that close yet… We still have almost 4 months til the wedding and it’s already all I think about! My FI and I are so ready, but want to wait until after the wedding to start trying. Here’s hoping for a honeymoon baby!! Good Luck on your TTC journey, hope its short!

I’ve had baby fever pretty badly and want to start immediately when we get married but alas, student loans. 🙁
My advice, just stay relaxed and calm, you don’t know how long it could take?

We are not even getting married till next summer, but TTC is all I can think about.

Oh my gosh, it really is hard to focus on other things once you start trying! We just went through our first cycle of trying. We are still trying, but seriously waiting to test after you ovulate is the worst! Good luck!

No…I’m nothing like that…but I’m praying I will be someday. LOL Let’s put it this way, in my religion (which is a HUGE part of my life), women generally get married younger (20-22) start having kids within a year (or sooner) and have baby fever like crazy. I’m 28, have a husband that would love to have kids now, and I have no….desire….whatsoever…none. We went to visit our new nephew (totally a sweetheart and adorable) and all I could think was, “Will someone please take their turn holding this kid so I dont’ have too?” Sad thing is, I love kids and I’m experienced with kids, so it’s not like there’s the fear of the unknown. Who knows..all I know is I hope I get the baby fever so that one day when we’re ready to start a family I’ll be SUPER excited. Ahhhh
I love hearing about everyone’s baby experiences, so bring them on! 🙂

After we got married when we started “trying”, that was all I could think about too, especially when I was around the hubby. I didn’t do any charting or determined when I was ovulating. We just were having fun. Do it when we want, like two newlyweds :).

I did at first too! It wasn’t really until I relaxed into it and actually didn’t even remember to test until I was 3 days late that I was actually pregnant! My best advice is to enjoy the time as much as you can – and I think wine and vacation are the best fertility tools out there 🙂

I’m totally with you! We’re not “trying” necessairly, but we’re not preventing it either. I went off the pill in November, and so far nothing. But, I have some other issues that need to be addressed with my doc I think before we can realyl start trying.

@Janna – Wine is DEFINITELY the best fertility booster I know. 😉
I say relax, and enjoy trying! The more you stress about it, the less likely it will happen. My bestie tried for 2 and a half years to get preggers – she charted, checked her mucus, took her temps, pretty much pulled out every trick in every book she could lay her hands on to get pregnant. She has no medical issues that were preventing pregnancy either – just the stress of makin’ a baby.
Finally, she just kind of “gave up”. She stopped doing everything she was doing and said “It will happen when it happens.” FYI, she’s due on Saturday. 😀

We weren’t trying for the first few months after our wedding but that didn’t stop me from secretly hoping that I would be pregnant and crying every month I got my period. When we started actually thinking about trying a little more, that’s all I could think about. We weren’t tracking anything we were just a little more conscious of the “best times” to try. Luckily, it really only took us two months and I know we were incredibly lucky. I can’t even imagine if we had had problems. My heart always goes out to those people.

I was like that too! I hated when I got my period…it just made me focus on it more. When it finally happened I was SOOO happy!

I have been like that too! It has been 6 months of TTC now, and I swear it was the LONGEST six months of my life. We’ll see what this month brings. The thing I hate most is when people tell me (especially my pregnant/mom friends) “Just relax, and then it will happen eventually” as if they weren’t exactly like me until they got a positive test and then decided to relax. 🙂 Charting is great, at least you feel like you have some control/knowledge. I actually wake up before my alarm every morning, looking forward to taking my temp! Good luck!
