Alright, my Darling Husband and I are not acutally TTC… well, i WANT to be TTC but he wants to wait a little longer. We have always used the “pull out” method and he had never finished inside me (Sorry, sorry TMI!!) because he is scared of having an “opps” (he was an “opps” and his childhood was very very difficult).
Lately, i have been bringing up the fact that we should start trying… and the day after my peiod we BD as well as the following day. However, Darling Husband and I both agree that it is not very likely since it was so early before ovulation. But, I also do not know when I ovulate, etc so I am secretly wishing and praying for a BFP. Darling Husband… not as much as I. We are back to using protection and are usual method after that one special BD.
The waiting is killing me… I want to know now. I am not suppose to start until the 23rd… and I have already POAS twice (hoping for an early BFP). I have so many mixed emotions because I really do hope this one time worked because I really do want us to have a baby now however I wanted him to be on the same page and excited like I am. I know he would have never done the BD if he wasn’t okay with it… I am just so anxious, confused and really hoping.
I know this is more like venting rather then a question… but I needed to get it off my chest!

You should really read Taking Charge of your Fertility. It will teach you SO much about your body’s cycle and how to tell when your fertile days are. It is very rare that you will be a day or two after your period (you’re only fertile for about 24-48 hours each month) and it usually comes close to halfway between periods. If you are planning to start TTC in the future, it helps a lot to know about your cycle and when your peak fertility days are.
I wish you luck!

I know exactly how you feel! I really want another baby but my Darling Husband doesn’t feel ready yet. He uses the same method and decided to give it a chance on Thanksgiving but it didn’t work. I felt really sad when I started but he said he is willing to try again but only once a month so we will know exactly when we get pregnant. Maybe your hubby will do the same if it didn’t work the first time. I can understand you wanting to test every day hoping it will change and be the BFP you want but if you can wait it out your chances are better for a true reading. I hope you get your BFP!!!

I know the feeling. 🙂 We’ve agreed to start TTC in March (or June…sigh) but we’re NTNT right now due to some fertility issues I have. For us, our NTNT means using the pull-out method and knowing when my fertile days are (which is really hard because of my fertility issues, we just guess and don’t really know.) Just wanted you to know you aren’t the only one that feels that way!
