It’s a slim possibility. Don’t put so much pressure on yourselves. Most couples don’t get pregnant in the first month. If you get pregnant in the first 3 months, you’ll still be in the minority. Calm down and just have fun practicing until it happens!

Nickig_4:  yes it only takes once! I’m just finished my first  month TTC unsuccessfully and it was a huge learning curve for me! The sex wasn’t an issue because we were on honeymoon at the time, but the pressure I put on myself after analysing every symptom testing like a maniac! I was a wreck! it will happen when it’s meant to happen just tell yourself that you may as well have fun! Just rremember it can take healthy couples a year to concieve! I secretly hoped we would get pregnant first cycle but we didn’t and ya know what that’s fine too! I get to enjoy some drinkies in December. And what I’m telling myself now is that touch wood it won’t be long until we have a LO taking all our attention so I’m really going to enjoy this TTC time with my hubby! I think like you the first month we put unecessary pressure on ourselves, it is a huge life changing event, but sometimes these things are just a lot of luck! You can do the deed morning and night at the right times of the month and it might just not happen anyway!

Try not to out so much pressure on yourself…. I am on my 3rd cycle TTC and am finally learning I just need to relax and let things happen! It’s no fun if it’s stressful. My first cycle we completely missed the fertile window since I ovulated too late haha! The 2nd cycle we did everything right and it still didn’t happen. This cycle I’m ovulating late again, but am tracking it. A lot of TTC is luck. It will happen for you eventually so just enjoy the ride! What had helped me is focusing on enjoying spending time with my DH and doing all the things I know we won’t be able to do (as easily) with a baby. Make this time special and enjoy each other,  try not to stress out, and it will make the process a lot more manageable!

Nickig_4:  It’s very hard and very emotional. I got pregnant with my son on 1st try two years ago, now I am on month 7 TTC. It sucks. I noticed that stressing makes my ovulation delayed. Last month I was so stressed out about the whole thing that I didn’t O until day 20. This month I’ve relaxed and I surprisingly got a positive OPK today at CD 14. Big hugs, it’s very hard.

Nickig_4:  I totally get it and am in the same boat. As far as the puppy– does she sleep with you? If so, get her exhausted and ready for bed. If she’s in your bed, but her on the side (even if she sleeps in the middle). Night time BDing goes much better than trying to BD during play time. My furbaby has a habit of joining otherwise and there’s just some places you don’t want kisses 🙂 


Good luck!

Nickig_4:  We TTC for 4 years and the stress of BD was killing our sex life. So there were times that DH made his deposit into a SoftCup (the disposible ones for AF) and I’d slip it in. Now there is an OTC cervical cap called the StorkOTC at CVS. I’ve read the condom is very painful, so most people use it like we did the Softcup. 

Good Luck and Baby Dust!
