We just completed out first cycle TTC. We got our BFP at 11 DPO.  Even waiting those 11 days was awful. FX that you get your BFP soon!

We’re in the middle of our first cycle TTC. I was on birth control right until we moved into TTC so it’s been a mess. I think I’m 2 dpo but really not sure. I’m not charting yet, so that’s all based off of my typical cycle length pre-bcp and what I think was ovulation pain on Saturday and Sunday.

Right now, I’m having all kinds of symptoms that are brand new to me and I’m not sure if it’s normal cycle stuff, my body trying to figure out life without bcp or if I ovulated way earlier than I thought and these are all early pregnancy symptoms. 

LittleKBee :  I’m with you on wanting to test early! I’m trying to make myself wait until CD 30, since I normally have 28-29 day cycles and don’t want to waste tests, but it’s so tempting to push that date up!

This is our first cycle TTC! We postponed for a while but then reached a point where we felt comfortable enough that we’d be okay with having a baby and we’re not getting any younger 🙂 I had my Paraguard removed June 29th and should ovulate around July 14-15. I had pretty regular 30 day cycles on the Paraguard and since it didn’t stop ovulation so nothing should change in that regard. However, I am traveling on July 15 so we are doing the baby dance every day up until then hoping that it can still happen even if we don’t do it on ovulation day! I’m a teacher so we’re really hoping we get a BFP one of these first few cycles for an April/May/June/July birthdate 🙂

larissakay :  ugh I feel you on the not really knowing whats happening symptoms-wise. This is my first month TTC and I’m on CD 38!!!! an no AF, all negative tests. Last BC pack ended last may this is my first month off it. ( withdrawl bleed on 6/7)

I had cramping like all last week and swore AF was coming or I was PG, but no to both so far. I am getting really frustrated. I just want it to come so I can hopefully get an April or May baby 🙂

I am pretty sure I didn’t ovulate this month, this is so annyoing. 🙁 hang in there!

Boxerlover24 :  Oh man. I’m sorry it’s taking so long for your body to normalize post-bcp! If I hit CD 38 without a bfp or AF, I think I’d freak out.

Last weekend when I started getting pelvic pain, I was like “woohoo, ovulation pain!” and then it lasted for 3 days and I was like… maybe it’s a uti? Haha. I know I need to stop symptom spotting and let my body do it’s thing, but I’m not very good at that. 

FX for spring babies for all of us!

We’re on month 5.

TTC is actually a lot harder than i’ve been led to believe.

My first cycle TTC was in May. In June we had to take a pause due to a vaccine I needed. It ended up being a 41 day cycle so it was a long wait to get to cycle #2. 
I’m now on CD3 of cycle 2, and I’m really excited to start trying again. 
I’ve been charting for 2 and a half years, so I’m really hoping all the info I have from that will come in handy.

I second slomotion. We’re in our 9th cycle, and it’s much harder than we’ve been led to believe…. I’m only in my mid-late 20s.

This is my first cycle!! Stopped the pill in November, took 3 months to ovulate then I have had heaving spotting around 6 to 12 DPO ovulation before my period. Blood works tested fine. I have a referral to get an ultrasound if it happens again this month to see if anything is there. Was hoping this would all clear up before TTC but thought I might as well start trying. 

On the TTC note, my temp dropped this morning and my left side is tender so I think I am ovulating today. Will DTD one last time tonight and wait and see what happens…
