have lots of sex. 

Thats it really. TTC can be a head f*ck (took me 2.5 years with my first) but you never know whether you’ll be a one cycle and done or a lifer.

so for now, have sex. Have some wine on the weekend, go on trips and dates together and enjoy each other. 

If in a year still no joy go to the doctors, but for now – get naked

Hi bee, when you say you have the RH factor, do you mean you’re RH positive? If so then I don’t think you’d have anything to worry about…the only time RH stuff can be an issue is when the fetus is RH positive and the mom is RH negative. This is actually the case with me (I am RH neg and dh is RH pos, which means baby could also be RH pos), and even this is very normal and a routine thing in terms of treatment…they just give you a rhogam shot at 28 weeks and after delivery.

Good luck with TTC! Hope it’s a quick ride for you guys.

msmeow85 :  I’m so sorry about your MC. I also had a miscarriage around 6-7 weeeks – last December – and had to get the rhogam shot at that time (that’s when they found out I was RH neg as well). It was just one more kick in the gut at the time, but I can assure you that with my current healthy pregnancy it really has been a non-issue. They test my blood periodically to make sure I haven’t been “sensitized” to the baby’s blood and all is well. I had the rhogam shot at 28 weeks and will get another after I have the baby – that’s really it!

msmeow85 :  That’s so exciting! 

I hope everything goes well. 

And hoenstly I think NTNP is the best way to go. My husband and I aren’t ttc yet but I think this is at least how we’ll start to ease into it and have a little less stress.

msmeow85 :  While the less you try the easier it is is a tautology (of course something is easier if you aren’t worried about whether it works or not.) I actually agree, the longer you can do that the better.  We ended up taking a decent while to get pregnant and while the first 3-5 months or so I was still super optimistic, later the fact I had been using OPKs that entire time so I knew the timing was good I think made it harder.  It’d have been easier to just keep shrugging it off as maybe bad timing.

Just have lots of sex, worry if its been about a year and nothing’s happening.  Good luck. πŸ™‚

msmeow85 :  my last pill was last week! My prescription ran out and when I realized I thought “now’s as good a time as any to NTNP”. It’s both such a big move and such a little move at the same time. Good luck to you on this journey!

msmeow85 :  I stopped BCPs in June, mainly because I didn’t like how they were affecting my body, and somewhere along the line DH and I decided to NTNP, so no OPKs etc. Because I’ve been having extremely irregular cycles since coming off, 14 days, 19, 24, and currently on CD31 with no sign of AF, I am going to charting BBT and CM next cycle to see when and if I am ovulating. 

It’s an exciting time! Good luck πŸ˜ƒ

Welcome to the journey 😊

I’ve been off the pill 4 months now ….. not pregnant yet 

ive also had 4 regular periods , first one at 34 days coming on the first month after the pill , they are pretty light though and only lasting 2-3 day max ! 

I was hoping I’d get pregnant straight away …. but sadly it hasn’t happened and I also had a weeks positive preg tests last month (including digital tests ) but sadly got fainter and my next period come …

im also tempting as I didn’t want to miss my fertile window 

hopefully it will happen quick for you though 😊 everyone is different 

good luck πŸ‘πŸΌ
