We got pregnant on our first try also. My heart breaks for those who have been TTC with no success or miscarriage 🙁 🙁

We tried for 8 months and had an early miscarriage before I got a sticky BFP (just entered my second trimester). It was really hard at times – my old posts will show I had some pretty blue days and it was hard to stay positive. The only thing to do is keep on truckin, treating yourself well, and nurturing your relationship with your husband. Good luck!

It’s just plain hard to see others around you getting pregnant when all you want is a baby. Sometimes the TTC process can make you feel so out of control, since there’s nothing you can really do except for keep trying and keep hoping. We personally got pregnant on cycle #3, which wasn’t bad at all… yet during those 3 months it was hard to not already get frustrated, since we just had no idea at all how long it would take.

I think that the jealousy is normal when you are TTC and it hasn’t happened yet. I have been in the same situation. You find out a friend or co-worker is pregnant and you are happy for them, but at the same time ask why not me?
As far as how long it took to get pregnant for us. The first time it took 5 months, but we lost the baby at 7 weeks. The doctor then told us to wait 3-4 months, and the first month we tried again I got pregnant right away. I think it happened so fast because by that time I really knew my cycle and when everything was happening.

@Lala61111 Your comment on how you are taught that getting pregnant is so true. They scare you in health class at school that if you have sex you WILL get pregnant and make it sound so easy. Then, you start TTC and learn it is not as easy as you’ve been taught. I believe this is where a lot of the pressure comes from too because so many women are feeling like failures for not getting pregnant right away, when that is simply not the case.

I dunno guys. There is a person that I work with who was pregnant the same time I was and announced it just last week… I should have been cursing at her especially because she is a bi*** sometimes, but I wasn’t. I knew she had a hard time trying and so I was happy for her. I don’t feel jealous, but I could do without the stress of having a miscarriage and seeing the baby in that form.
