Well, I’m on month 2 ttc and can totally relate. I chart but this month was a wonky cycle, so I’m not sure if it was enough to get me ku. Really hope so! Anyway, you are not alone in your stressing!

@b2b5412:  +OPKs and rising temps sound positive – everyone’s CM is different, and I know mine varies from cycle to cycle, so don’t worry about that too much. one more high temp should confirm O.

Thanks for thinking of us who have been trying for a while – it’s not fun, so hoping you get lucky quickly 🙂

Worth getting more fussy about your temps though, for more reliable data, if you’re in it for the long haul – it doesn’t take long to get used to turning off the alarm, sticking the thermometer in until you hear a beep, then falling back asleep. I’ve only been temping for a couple of months and it’s habit now.

I know that TTC is an extremely stressful process. It took us 8 months to conceive our first…lost it, then another 5 for our second, lost it and finally, after a year and a half of first starting to TTC, we got pregnant with the baby I’m due to give birth with in 6 weeks. 

Using the OPKs is a really good start, and the two week wait is absolute torture. Just try to focus on other things aside from TTC. I know it’s hard…trust me! But you’re going to drive yourself insane for the first few months if you overanalyze everything. I totally did it to myself. We were at the point where we were going to get tested for everything under the sun until I got pregnant the 3rd time. Just try to focus on yourself…keeping yourself healthy, and having lots of fun BDing with your DH!
