Darling Husband and I have been doing everything we are supposed to do, charting, using th ovulation stick things, making love when I am having the LH surge… and for the 2nd month in a row…. aunt flow showed up.
Darling Husband, is like “oh well, if it happens it happens” and doesn’t understand why I am upset.

The truth is it can take several months to conceive even when it seems that you are doing everything right. Fingers crossed for a BFP for you soon!

@ignatiangal: *hugs* I’m in my second cycle, CD 10. When AF showed last cycle, I was really upset because it feels like people get KU really easily and I wasn’t one of them. Talking to the ladies here on the TTC boards has really straightened out my head and given me valuable information and other people’s experiences. My GYN said that if I don’t get KU within 6 months, then I should start wondering what’s happening and get testing done. Sometimes, there isn’t a reason why it didn’t work last cycle, but the same thing can work the next cycle! I’m trying to relax a bit more during this cycle, since stress doesn’t help things either! Hang in there!

I read an American Medical Association article that said the average american woman who is actively TTC will conceive in 8 cycles. Obviously, this means some will be quicker, but just as many will take longer.
I’m in your boat with just starting to TTC (2nd cycle right now) and I keep trying to tell myself that it’s not abnormal to have to wait- even though it is hard!
Don’t worry too much- especiallyif your OB said not to until 6 months.

@ignatiangal: Hugs. I’m currently on cycle 4. My OB said it can take an average of 8 months for a healthy couple to conceive. She won’t do any interventions with us until we’ve reached the year mark. It sucks, but that’s the way it goes. Some couples conceive fast while others get more practice and a more joyful BFP than others. If you’re a failure, then I am too! We’ll all get our BFPs, some faster than others.

@ignatiangal: Yeah, I hear you. I’m pretty much in the same boat as you — TTC for a few months now, and AF showed up this weekend. Argh. Sometimes I feel like my Darling Husband doesn’t get it, either, but I realize he’s just trying not to make a big deal out of it at this stage. Anyway, you’re not alone! Fingers crossed for you.
