We’re thinking of starting TTC next month.  Eeek!  The best advice I’ve received so far was to read “Taking Charge of Your Fertility.”  It maps out the Fertility Awareness Method.  Since we haven’t started trying yet, I still have my fingers crossed that it will go smoothly but I am over 30.  The interesting part about this book is that by charting temps, etc. you can see what possible problems you may be encountering and it offers some solutions.  If the tips don’t work, you’d be armed with a lot of helpful info when you go see your OBGYN.  Good luck!  I’m so glad Weddingbee has the Baby section now.

We’ve been trying since March. I use ovulation tests but unfortunately my peak times were when I worked. I work nights and it was a 3 day stretch to which I don’t even see my hubs. There was a slight chance but got a negative test today. Even after 1 mth we were both disppointed tremedously but we will just keep trying! I have endometriosis bad and only have one ovary and one fallopian tube, togethor so I do worry. Just think I learned I stressed and expected it too much and now I’m going to try to relax and have fun with it! Good luck!

  We were not “trying” but we weren’t preventing…. and it was only for one week after the wedding but were both pretty disappointed when I did start my period (we knew there was only a slim chance). So we debated if we want to start planning and trying or wait. I think after feeling that disappointed I need to wait. I can’t imagine how sad I would be if I were purposeful and planning and it didn’t work. So I am just researching all things baby and trying to focus on work… blah work.

Guuuuurl, I hear you! We’ve been TTC since last March, so we just hit the 1 year mark. It’s definitely frustrating!

We just started trying for the first time this month. The wait is killing me and I’m already trying to get myself psyched up for doing this for at least several months knowing that it doesn’t usually happen right away. But it’s still going to be really disappointing if it doesn’t. Best wishes that it will happen for you soon!

good luck everyone.  I have had a lot of friends who took 10 months-1 year (and a few annoying ones who got luck in month 1 🙂  so hang in there!  Try to get as much enjoyment out of this time as you can – because once you get that great test result, meals over a bottle of wine, late nights out, etc. will suddenly become a thing of the past!  Enjoy each other,  enjoy your friends, take weekend trips, don’t test/think about TTC too much (if you can) and then let us all know when you get the great news 🙂

Thanks! And for those of you who are still TTC- we got it on the 2nd month trying, but I remember how hard it was that first month when my cycle started– I was so mad! I think it’ll happen when you destress your self and just hope for the best.  Is everyone taking prenatal vitamins? If not, pick some up- also, Fish Oil (w/DHA and RHA) is a plus too before and ESPECIALLY once you get a postive test back– buy the pricer stuff, not the cheap wal mart stuff as alot of those fish oil caplets and liquids still contain mercury

@Pelikila: It is nice to hear that other peeps are in the same boat! I just met with my military gyno and she wrote me up a refferal to go to another doctor to get my fertility checked out. I feel a lot better knowing that I’m being pro-active about it. Either I’ll find out soon that I (or my hubbers) might have a few obsticles or that we just need to be more patient. I think the “not knowing” is what makes it the hardest. PM me anytime you want to talk or vent about it!!

We started TTC last month. It was also my first month off the pill, so I was a little crazy wondering if my cycle would go back to normal right away or not.  It did, which was definitely a relief, but I was still really sad for a day or two when I got my period that first time.  I’m in the 2ww for month two now, and the hubs and I are a lot more laid back about everything this time around. Trying to be patient 🙂

I’m charting and using opk.  Sometimes the temping is frustrating because my chart isn’t perfect like all the examples.  I do like though that it gives me a basic idea of what’s going on on the larger scale.  Found out that my luteal phase is on the short side (11 days) so I started B6 to try to help that.

Good luck to all of you! And Congrats LilMisPriss!
