A little bit about me:
Me and my fiance have been trying for a baby effectively since October last year. I had came off the Depo Injection October 2011 but having been told it takes a year to leave my system, they couldnt carry out necessary tests until then. I had been reffered for scans and ovulation tests in November and it was confirmed everything was working fine so its 'just a matter of time' ive been having periods/bleeds since August but only really a regular period since September time. So..... i am now on a regular cycle and praying for a BFP in Feb!! Ovulation is around valentines day so heres to hoping
Anyone else also hoping for BFP? Feel free to share your stories im recently new to this forum.....

Hi Dolly and welcome,
Please can I join you. I am cd1 on cycle 5 of TTC number 2. I am finding it hard at the mo as I so want another little one and I fell quite quickly with DS. My cycles have been a bit erratic since I started noticing them again!!! but have now settled to 28 days.
Hope your stay in TTC is short in the nicest possible way!!!

Hi all! I'm also pretty new to this, have come off the pill in December so this is my first month trying! I have bought a clearblue fertility monitor Dolly and on that it says that you count day one as the day after your af starts too. It's all very confusing and becuase I have come off the pill, I've no idea how long this cycle will be so just dtd as much as poss! fc for BFP's!! sending baby dust your way girlsss! xx

We've been TTC for 9 months, I am 29
this is my back story, maybe you have some advice?
Hi guys, this is my first time here. I am so sad right now.
Since 2010 I've been experiencing spotting that comes 1 week after my period and doesn't stop. So basically I am bleeding 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. My dr put me on the pill, it didn't change anything.
9 months ago my husband and I started TTC and I've been charting everything. Spotting starts 1 week after ovulation, which means that if my endo is shedding it's not giving a chance for the embryo to attach. Dr said everything looked fine inside and that my progesterone was ovulatory, but am I wasting my time TTC when there's an obvious problem? Has anyone had something like this?

hello, may i jump in here?
i'm on cd5, and have had a really rough one this time around. very painful! still having some "pms" pains in my middle and legs, so i don't know what's going on! very frustrated. was 2 days early, and after some research, am wondering if i maybe had a fertilized one, but no implantation.....
and lucia, i get it. i have also been told there's nothing obviously wrong......but have been trying for a long time! but, i'll keep ttc, as there's really nothing i want more! i get the sadness too. have, as i said, had a really rough one - physically and mentally - this time around.

I have weird spotting so I do feel there's something wrong... I might take a break. I read some articles yesterday and some of them adviced to take a break from trying. The moment my hubby agreed I felt happy already. I cried today though, cos I feel I only feel inadequate ppl getting pregnant and I'm like Helloo?? God must want only messed up ppl on the Earth... just kidding. I can only trust in His timing. Not saying you should take a break but it might help. One adivce from this article was also go back to the things you used to love, i am doing that. I am making a list of things I want to do with the hubs and places to visit, I am gonna go back to living life to the fullest. Before we started trying I was a happy person and I can't let this ruin my life :P
Oh regarding your question, I also have a feeling we conceive but it doesn't implant... very frustrating

Hi Ladies... Hope your all ok!
We all have to stay positive and try not to stress or worry as i tottally believe in worry makes things take longer. we all have to keep sharing baby dust and hope Febuary is BFP month! im trying to think of it and ive decided not to monitor my ovulation this month. i no when its roughly due, and will deffo be trying my best around that time but i think taking tests all the time add's unnecessary stress to it all! ohhh...what us women hve to go through! if only our fella's realised xx

The only reason I am monitoring everything is to have more info for the DR, otherwise if I didn't do my hw he won't take me seriously.

hello lucia, and all.
i know that if i were to relax then things might be easier, but in the midst of trying to find a job, i find that stress is hard to avoid right now.
we are going this week to have a test done for him, so lets see what the brings about.....i like the idea of distracting activities, and we are planning some for later this year. we'll be state side, as my sister lives down there now. so we'll try...

wallow away! it's good sometimes to let it run its course.
i'm thinking of skipping the opks this time around, as i have a fairly good idea of when it'll happen, and try to do a little cleansing this month, as hubby has agreed to try as well. we'll see what happens next month.

Hey! i agree with sponge bobby. this is only technically month 3 (started in september) for me but the last two have been 50 days between each cycle and then ive luckily only had a 4-5 day period with medium heavy ness. I dont want to use OPKS just yet as want to try and do it when we feel like it, but to give me a huge blow to my ego and selfesteem i have just found out that my closest friend is pregnant. she told me yesterday and said she is about 8 weeks. I knew they were gonna start trying after christmas, which i thought was cool as i would like a baby buddy who i already am great friends with, and hoped id have a head start as we have been ready for children way before them, but they were lucky enough for it to happen straight away, and whats worse.... it was a complete fluke as they thought that night 'oh sod it.. we wont get a condom... will ruin the mood'
what a blow! ive spent the whole weekend with her visiting another friend and have just obsessed over the fact that it was so easy for her and coming off the pill her cycle went straight to 30 days!?!??!?!
ahh enough of that lol back to the subject in hand... im very lucky as i dont think i have worried about a 2 week wait yet as i havent known when im ovulating and have tried not to think i am pg. this month tho is totally diff. I conciously noticed (tmi) my CM and tried to go by that, but will carry on still for like the next week/2 weeks and not test untill 30th jan, when it will be 50 days again......
Enough of my moaning lol
Baby dust to us all
