I know there are so many other Bees out there who are checking around everyday for new baby posts…
As soon as I was married, I was on to the Nesting site, and somehow the posts about how to arrange my living room werent keeping my interest (not that I think this is an unworthy post…just something I cant relate to..i like my living room….).
My husband and I are TTC… and let me tell you, its been a crazy shift in thinking… I went from “Please God, if Im not pregnant I promise Ill be better…” to “Please God… We want this more than anything…”
It is so hard to sit through that two-week-wait. It is so hard to keep your mind on other things, while keeping in mind what this is all for.
The other day someone posted…Statistically, most people who want to have a child do have a child… That somehow put my mind at ease. But it doesnt change the fact that Im waiting now…
I put my name on the TTC list…and it scared me! Like I was jinxing it or something! Last night I asked Darling Husband if he thought maybe this time around worked… He wouldnt say… He didnt want to jinx it.
I am so luky to be in this with a great guy who is as excited as I am to turn our guest room into a play room and shop for diapers instead of slpurge on hockey tickets.
None of this changes that we’re still waiting…! Its so hard. And ladies… I guess I just wanted to put a new post out there to say youre not alone.

Yes, it is hard! I’ve been pretty open on here about the struggle Darling Husband and I are going through. Welcome to the “TTC” group! I get what you are saying about jinxing it, though I would try not to think that way, and here is why…the bees have been an invaluable source of support and advice for me since February. Also, there are a lot of things I would not want to bring up with people IRL. So this is a great place to share.
Welcome to the club, and best of luck to you!!!!! 🙂

Hi @ArtsyBride10, thanks for the post!! I can definitely relate so this was a nice post! While I can’t relate to the TTC and waiting because we haven’t started yet, I can relate to this board being the only one I really follow closely anymore! The other boards don’t hold my attention nearly as much. It almost feels like waiting for the ring felt. Good to know I’m not alone!! Good luck to you and @Heathaah both! 🙂

@artsybride10: Welcome to it! I’m at the end of my tww and going a little crazy…should know one way or the other in the next day or two.
I can’t think about anything else either. Good luck to you and all the other ttc ladies!

Lots of us are in the same boat, which is nice! I’m in month 2. I wouldn’t say I’m stressing because I know it’s counterproductive, but I definitely think about it a lot! And ditto about this board. I look at the general board when I’m bored…but I check this one first. We’ve got to keep posting so it updates frequently!
Good luck to everyone.

I didn’t join WB until after I was engaged but I think TTC might even be harder than waiting to get engaged!

@caszos I think you are totally right!!! I always wondered what it would be like to be on WB if I didnt even have a bf or something… which some girls are! Good for them! =) But I think I know… It is like being on the baby board when you dont have babies!! lol
@heathaah I SO appreciate your sharing your journey on the bee…. I think its brave of you. And I admire you and your husband both. I think my husband thought it would be SO easy to do, and hes realizing each couple will have different experiences. And your story is one of those! Thank you for sharing. Im following you on here, so keep it up!
The time will come! For us all! Thanks for the welcome girls! Hope the TWW feels more like a day for everybody.

Thanks so much!! We find out some big news tommorow morning! We will know if my 11mm follicle (as of monday) has grown enough to drop (15), and if my estrogen (81) has gone up enough (they are hoping for over 100). I am feeling very optimistic because I have had pain in my right ovary!!! I will update!!!! If no progress, then more Clomid starting tommorow. Not the end of the world. But fingers and toes are crossed!!!!

@heathaah Thats amazing! I love that doctors know so much more than in years past!! I will be thinking of you tomorrow and keeping my fingers crossed too!!! (And of course checking for a post! haha)

We are also in the same boat. At first I think I was trying and wishing too hard. Now we are in the process of moving and trying to sell our house we were in, so now I’m stressing about that. Hopefully, once everything dies down it will happen! But I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only one!

Thank you for this post. It’s nice to know that we’re not alone in this. Like @heathaah, Darling Husband and I are struggling with TTC and suffering from infertility issues. I find it so valuable to have a place to come where everyone else is focused on the same thing you are. During wedding planning – having so many people to talk to about your wedding when none of your real life friends want to listen. And now, with having major baby fever – having other people who want to talk about it non stop.

Good luck to all of you! I have scheduled my myomectomy (fibroid removal surgery) for 11/4/10. I found out last week my MRI showed about 15 fibroids just about everywhere, including the uterine cavity. No choice but to do the surgery. I’m so worried about the surgery, as well as the risks and recovery and then we have to wait at least 3 months to ttc again. 🙁
Baby dust to everyone!!!! 🙂

I feel your pain, girl. Hubs and I are in month 6 of TTC, and all the pressure of “oh, you’ll conceive the first month” was HORRIBLE! I hate those people, who tell you it’ll take two seconds to get pregnant than harass you every month why it hasn’t happened yet (hello, mother!) I just went to the ob/gyn for the first time since Feb, as I finally got back on health insurance. She checked me for both endometriosis and thyroid problems, and turns out I have a clean bill of health. I was hoping maybe it was just stress keeping the babies away, but who knows. Good luck to you both!

Not good news today, but not terrible (though I did cry)…My 11 mm follicle is back down to 8. So more Clomid…but at least is isn’t too late for this cycle. I start up again tonight. She said that is is like my cycle is in limbo. Although technically is day 19, it is like I am sitting at day 5.
I think I can…..I think I can….. Come on little eggies, you can do it!!! 🙂 Damn, I am overtired.
