Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I cannot wait to get back to TTC. It's been seven months since we stopped trying and I'm so impatient to get going again. I don't know why, but despite ten cycles of trying last time, I'm hopeful that we won't have a long wait this time around.
Today is CD13 and I'm due to ovulate any time, it's so frustrating to be doing nothing about it I am hopeful that I might get a positive OPK tonight, I've never had a positive before. Plenty of EWCM sand a bit crampy, so we shall see.
How are my old TTC buddies getting on? Any newbies just waiting to get started? Any newbies from Hitched who I already know from OT?

Hi Saffron! I'm new on my 2nd cycle ttc, I lurked a bit on hitched when I planned my wedding 2 years ago but wouldn't know anyone there.
That must be hard to stop trying once you have started! Look forward to having you over here :-)

7 months!! It has gone so quickly (for me, despite all my waiting) but I bet it has dragged for you.
Not long now!

I said this to you the other week but i can't believe how it seems 2 minutes ago you were stopping ttc. Now here you are back again!
You know me from H, FB and from here. It;s good to have you back on MD.
I'm still here. Although, I will be found lurking over on MTTC rather than TTC. I don't want to drag people down!

Hi Imp and Ducky as much as I'm so sorry that you are both in here, it's lovely to see some familiar faces.
Lulu, hope you're settling in. It's lovely to see new faces around here, I hope you have a short TTC journey

Saffron that has flown! What's happening with uni now? Have you finished your course?
17/09/2013 at 19:44
Hi saf, how is your course going? I'm still here. Wondering whether to move onto dtc but its so quiet there. Fingers crossed you won't be here long.

VT - have you had a name change? I can't place you, but you obviously remember me
Raincloud, so sorry that you are still here what stage are things at for you? Doc appts happened already?
I'm nearly a month in to Uni. It's nine months now until I complete, so in a couple of weeks we can start TTC and I can (technically, in theory, all going well) complete, and then defer my placement year.

So exciting! I'm glad you'rbabble to get back on the TTC wagon. No name change, I'm new here but I know you from Hitched OT and a FB group but no-one knows we are TTC yet so I'm all mysterious for the time being. Sorry :/
17/09/2013 at 20:40
I'm new around here but know you from hitched OT (at least if you are who I think you are!!)
17/09/2013 at 20:47

I'm peed off to know that 7 months have gone by and I'm still here as are a few other lovelies boooo :(
Anyway be lovely to catch up and hope uni etc is going well and fingers tightly crossed you get the BFP pretty pronto xx

Oh LeeLee, I'm sorry love while its lovely to see some of my old TTC buddies, I so wish that you didn't need to be here.
VT - so intriguing! I'll be eagerly awaiting your reveal
Hey Nutty one! I wore the skirt to a BBQ this summer. It looked fab, and I got drunk and attempted a cartwheel in it RKB can vouch for me!

Saff- We had the docs apt& the various tests. Results weren't good so H has to go back for more tests in oct. Since the first ones he has really struggled with it all so things are pretty rubbish at the moment. I'm trying not to think about it. I'm dreading him getting bad results again as I don't think he will handle it well. But I'm beginning to think that it's inevitable. Dreading the thought of us heading towards ivf, yet desperate for children. I can feel myself getting all bitter & twisted as more and more friends announce their pregnancies & births. This TTC lark is pants.

Oh love, I had no idea, I've really struggled to keep up to date with everyone. It must be such a hard time for you and your H I'll be thinking of you and hoping for a more positive update soon. You know we are all here for you, so feel free to vent on here whenever life is getting a bit too much. Really hope that things get easier soon, xx

OhRaincloud I must have missed your posts too.
My H is the opposite and seems to have taken it all in his stride. However, maybe as we are both a bit broken the 'blame' is shared? Maybe H would feel differently if it was just him.
I don't really have any advice but stay strong, you need each other more than ever right now. TTC is a horrible time when it doesn't go to plan and it can cause huge stresses in a relationship.
IF (note the big IF) you end up going down the IVF road, you can ask me any questions. One huge positive from IVF being your only (likely) chance of conceiving means it isn't your responsibility anymore. I felt like a massive weight was lifted. Whilst I struggled with the waiting, I also really enjoyed (am enjoying) the break of not trying anymore.

Thanks saff and ducky, you're both very sweet. You didn't miss any posts, I haven't been able to 'talk' about it. I just didn't post over the summer, was easier that way. We're ok in terms of our relationship, if anything it's making us stronger. I think one of the reasons he has taken it so badly is that it never occurred to him there might be a problem, so the results came totally out of the blue for him, whereas I had assumed there was a 'problem' with one/both of us so I was more mentally prepared for it. Plus our doctor was off ill at the time so the results were given to us by a locum, who wasnt very helpful or clear & gave us totally incorrect info. We'll see what October brings. It will be 18 months then, and I think it's 2yrs of trying before they refer in our area so not sure what they/we can do between oct & next spring.

Hello! I'm from hitched, but different name. Should be easy enough to figure out, though.
He fully it happens quickly for you now!

Raincloud, so sorry to hear your latest news. I feel for you and your H, it must be really hard when one if you has to go back for tests, must be hard not to start blaming yourself.
I'm sorta worried if we go for tests (now looking likely) I wouldn't blame my H but if it was me that had to have more tests I'd hate myself.
I hope you get some answers and before next Spring.
A friend of ours posted in FB her 10wk scan and that hit me like a thundering train, took me a couple of days to not think about it, happy for them but I wasn't expecting to look on my FB feed and there it was in black and white.
This ttc malarkey is indeed pants big ugly grey ones!
Thinking of you :) xx
