We recently decided to TTC we are not getting married for a few years and both want kids but menopause happens in my family ridiculously early and fertility problems run rampid so we decided now is the time.
I started taking prenatal vitamins and use the Period Tracker app and I get really bad cramps when I ovulate so which was on the 11th this month. Today I noticed some spotting and I had a mild panic attack of “omg is this implantation bleeding” and now I’m very impaitently waiting for the day I can take a test.
However my FI is driving me nuts. everyday since we decided to TTC he has been obnoxious about asking me to take a test. It has been very hard to not be outraged at him everytime he asks. I have very paitently explained that I can’t test until x amount of days before my period is supposed to start but he isn’t comprehending.
He keeps kissing my stomach and saying “be in there” Its cute but also annoying
He also told a few of our friends that we are TTC so they keep asking me how its going. I’m not very happy about him telling friends, especially since he didn’t ask me.
Is anyone elses SO driving them insane while TTC?
Also should I be concerned at all over the spotting? And do I really have to wait another week to find out? Am I even likely to get pregnant during the first month of TTC?

@Wildflower2016: Do you know when you are supposed to get your period typically or about? Do you know how many days past ovulation you are?
And yes it is possible to get pregnant your firts month TTC if you times it right with your ovulation days 🙂

@Wildflower2016: does he have a calendar? it might make life easier if you just mark off a set day when you can take the test so he doesn’t keep asking!!
it can happen the first month! fingers crossed it has happened for you! i got pregnant the 2nd month with no charting or active trying.
I do think you need to ask him to be more discrete though, even if hes super excited. The firts few months are a scary time where the pregnancy seems a bit uncertain, and you don’t want people asking if its happened/ looking for signs youre pregnant before you’re ready to tell them

Aww…bless his heart, it’s great that he’s so excited! Most men could care less haha. I can see how it would get annoying, but give hima break 🙂 Just wait until you actually ARE pregnant! hehe
Your symptoms sound VERY promising, btw. Good luck 🙂

@Wildflower2016: Very promising then. I tetsed a weej before my period was due (with a blue dye test though–oops), and I got nothing. I tested 3 days before I missed it with a first response, and I got a nice pink line, so you could test about 6 days before your missed period.
By the way, as annoying as your SO is, I think it’s adorable lol.

@Wildflower2016: hahaha he is very excited huh? I second @newname_99 and just mark on the calendar when you can test so he will zip it for a week 🙂
Also not gonna lie I totally laughed at the bit when you said he keeps kissing your stomach..that would bother the eff out of me too but as an outsider I think its pretty cute 🙂

@newname_99: I already marked it on our calender. not so much marked but circled the day with a pink and blue circle. Our calender hangs on our wall and its a jumbo desk calender with every date that a bill is due and its in plain site. So I made it as discreet as possible.
My friends that do know we are TTC are constantly asking me what is going on. My two best friends are currently duking it out over who will be the godmother, and my one friend is having her birthday party at our apartment on monday and she has already laid down the law that she is buying me white grape juice and some type of carbonated water for that night, I can not drink, I can not participate in hookah, nobody is smoking ciggarettes near me, etc.
Everyone who currently does know we are TTC also knows that if I do get pregnant it has potential to be a very rough pregnancy. I have heart problems and I am over weight, supposedly we also have potential for problems with Rh factor or something because I’m A- FI is B+ my friend and her FI have the same blood types and miscarried at week 7. My doctor already said when my heart got diagnosed that if I get pregnant I would be considered high risk. FI has agreed to stop telling people, I want to be able to enjoy and adjust to being pregnant on my own without being bombarded with questions from the moms, dads, siblings, etc.

Congratulations! My husband and I had dinner at my parents last night. My mom asked if I wanted some ice cream and my husband said, “Can I get you some pickles with that?” Now my mom is convinced I’m pregnant. I’m only 2 dpo!
