so its finally happening. after a bit of back and forth and mind changing due to possible holidays etc we have decided that we will just start trying and see what happens. Im currently CD7 and when i came off the pill in december things seemed regular but clearly my body had other ideas as it was 40 days before AF arrived again making me wonder about my ovulation date. I am going to use OPKs to see when i ovulate this month and go from there i guess.
Im very excited and had to just tell someone as have decided not to tell friends and family that we are trying, just in case. I wanted to tell my closest friend she was my maid of honor however recently she told me of one of our other friends pregnancy when she was only 6 weeks, and prior to that another friend she told me about just after they did the test. i dont feel that was her place to tell me on either occasion and dont feel comfortable that she could keep it quiet.
so bees im hoping you can be my sounding board as dont have anyone to chat too about all the fun that comes with TTC.

Yay it is so exciting!! Congrats to starting this journey! I am a new one as well, I stopped birth control on 2/3 and we have began ttc right away. Our plan was to start ttc in august or september so thats what all of our family and friends think we are doing. We are not telling anyone right now to keep it stress free, and more exciting if it happens before our original date.
Hopefully you get a quick bfp!!:)

Welcome to the TTC journey – hopefully it is a short one! We are keeping it pretty quiet too. 2 of my very close girl friends know that we are trying, but it isn’t something that we really talk about regularly. I never expected TTC to be so lonely – so I am SO glad that I can share and vent with the other bees. We are on month 4, but I just learned that I ovulate later than I thought, so our timing was off in previous months. I had a hard time with OPKs, but I started temping and find that has helped a ton. Good luck! FX for you!

Yay congrats! We are also TTC and on our second cycle since stopping BCP’s in Dec (I stopped mid pack and didnt get my first period for 6 weeks – probably not the best idea) Im now on CD15 and still havent ovulated – last month my LP was 9 days so im hoping it doesnt stay like that.
We are also keeping it quiet – well actually not telling anyone. I didnt want the added pressure and questions from people. This way, I can remain as calm and stressfree as possible – heh.
Good luck to you! 😀

That’s so exciting!! Good luck to you both! I’m hoping to start TTC in Spring and can’t wait!
I agree that it was a bit wrong of your friend to tell you about those two pregnancies so early on, so I can understand you be wary of telling her pregnancy related news until it actually happens and you’ve had a scan.
I came off the pill in early Jan and so far have had a predictable cycle but I read it can start like that then go all over the place so I’m feeling quite wary at the moment.

im CD11 and have been using OPKs for two days and negatives so far. my cm is damp and sticky so seems to indicate i should be ovulating soon i think, well i hope. im thinking if we start doing the BD over the next few days that it will be the right time. I wil continue to use the OPKs to see if im on the right track.
im actually super nervous!
