I never thought I would be so excited to see EWCM nor did I ever actually pay attention to what was coming out of there!

I never thought I would use a cup of water to distinguish between semen and EWCM.

I never had an obsession with POAS nor did I care what my temperature was as long as it was below 98.6

Before TTC I had never taken my temperature before (had been taken for me in hospital once though) – I didn’t even own a thermometer!

Agree with all of the above!

Before TTC, I never

… peed on a stick

… thought I would obsess about keeping data about my body

… thought I would be one of those people who thought of sex as a chore

… thought anyone could convince me to stop running

… tried to gain weight

… thought I’d buy and read 10 books all about a topic that wasn’t related to my career

I never thought I would be so emotional.  And that my period every month would be not only difficult physicallruelyy, but emotionally. 

I never thought I would think sex could be a chore. (like others)

I never understood how optomistic my SO would be.

I thought I would be at month 14 and still hopefull and energetic each cycle.

Eat pineapple religiously in two week blocks.

Cry over my temperature. 

Decline oral sex because the “saliva” might be hostile to the sperm.

JLFinch:  Haha! So so true! I never paid attention to it, or its coskate cry, or what it meant, or the different stages and its relation to ovulation…. It is all new territory for me haha.

I never thought I’d be reading so much on TTC on a wedding website hahaha!!

ohhh good thread! and I will echo some of what others said.

I never thought I would…..

wake up at 4:00 am on weekends to take my temperature so it matched my weekday times.

that i’d pay so much attention to CM

that i’d get so damn tired of sex lol

that a single temperature in the morning could make or break my day

that i’d order bulk ovulation tests/pregnany tests

that I would think so many things were wrong with me

have a hard time getting pregnant

I’ve been following this boards as we are ttc afyer our wedding in a couple of months. Reading the books you’ve all recommended!

already I’m thinking ahead for the first time more than ever. We are oldies so I’m trying to be realistic about the chances of getting pregnant but I can’t help thinking about plans in 3+months thinking “oh will I be able to do that then?”.  A half marathon in october and a very boozy girls holiday being two of those things.
