Go get a fertility workup before fretting too much.  The workup is mostly a blood/urin analysis and some sonograms. it’s not too scary.

This whole process is a pain. And in my view pop culture hasn’t helped. All you see on TV/movies are two kinds of women: the ones who accidentally get pregnant or the ones who are dying to get pregnant but can’t. good TV I guess but really bad for confidence level. 

My doc just kept repeating that I was young and healthy and so there was no reason to worry and so be patient. except I worry about EVERYTHING and I am the least patient person I know. 

Of course i ended up with a good story. Exactly 6 cycles of tracking/charting and I became pregnant with my little girl. I spent a lot of those six cycles on here because it gave me somewhere to go where I could give my feelings room and not be ashamed to be obsessively symptom spotting and no one judged me for the early test (just gently reminded me that a week was probably not long enough to wait). 

Wish I could tell you it’s better the second time around. And yet here I am back again. 

Good luck. Chart. Temp. Learn your body. Lean on the ladies here who really know their stuff.
