I’m going to start be acknowledging that I am aware some bees on here have been TTC for a number of months or years and this post is not meant as being insensitive to those trying – I just want to share my joy/encourage other bees who may be nervous about starting to TTC.
I had been on non-hormonal cooper IUD for a number of years. I got married in May and DH and I decided we should start trying in September. Well I went to get my IUD removed on a Monday, ovulated on that following weekend and three weeks after removing my IUD….then was late for one day on my period. Since I’m usually like a clock, I finally convinced myself to go get a pregnancy test.
Well, I POAS for the first time in my life last night and got two lines! I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was secretly hoping it would work on the first try but never imagined it would actually happen so fast. I literally had my IUD out for 6-7 days the day we conceived.
For the past years, I had been nervous ( so nervous! ) because I felt like I was waiting too long to TTC. I went to university forever, got a great career and met my husband but was always worried of TTC in my thirties. Now I’m worried about a miscarriage…but at least if something like that happens I know we’re both fertile.
The next challenge is how to wait until Christmas to tell our parents! I live hours away from my parents and really want to tell them in person at Christmas but it’s going to be a hard waiting a few months still.
Also, I’m already having all sorts of food cravings and feeling tired. I usually get these symptoms as PMS symptoms…it is normal to experience them so early on? I’ve technically only been pregnant for a little over two weeks so I’m surprised I already feel symptoms.
Feels good to share my joy somewhat anonymously – it’s hard to keep it in!

congrats bee!!!! So exciting and how fun will it be to share the news around the holidays 🙂
My husband and I are TTC and October is our first cycle. I am suppose to get my period the 26th. I POAS last night and it was negative. Maybe too soon? I am unsure.. I am so impatient lol
Have fun and good luck!

I see what you’re trying to do here and I agree that people shouldn’t feel rushed or scared just because some people have a hard time TTC, but this is definitely not going to play out well. The title alone is a tough read on a TTC board. I’d edit if you still can…
Also, congratulations and H&H 9 months

This happened to my friend, too! She says that her talk with her adolescent son will be, “We had unprotectes sex one time. And how many children do we have?” Haha!
Congratulations and best wishes for a healthy baby!

Whitums anybody who doesn’t want to read her post can just scroll by, no? Everyone’s experiences are valid and every bfp is worthy of celebrating!

I would change your title to “My BFP Story” or something of the like.

it’s exciting and scary in its own way to get pregnant very quickly and women are going to want to talk about it and share their excitement about it. There are more appropriate places here to crap all over people who get pregnant quickly than somebody’s announcement post.

I know TTC is a very, very sensitive topic, but I felt this was done tastefully. If anything, it gives hope to people who are terrified that they cannot conceive in their 30s. She’s not rubbing it in anyone’s face, and I don’t think the TTC board is reserved for tales of frustration, fear and heartache. We have to leave some room for joy here, too.

Hm funny, my response to her thread wasn’t remotely bitchy nor did I crap on her joy..I actually congratulated her. But I understand reading comprehension isn’t everyone’s thing. This post isn’t a straight BFP post, it’s also a Public Service Announcement about not being scared cause not everyone has a hard time which as I stated, is a valid point to make. But posting it on a TTC board with the title “it all happened so fast” takes away from the attempt at sensitivity.
OP, you clearly aren’t a jerk and my post is not intended to make you feel like one, but to point out that the thread title can be hurtful.
