Trying to conceive
30/11/2015 at 14:44
Me and my Fiance have only been ttc for a couple of months now and I'm already feeling the stress of it all!
I just wanted to chat to other women who are also trying to conceive. I'm hoping that it will calm me down a bit!
Would love to hear other people stories and experiences!!

Hi guys, I am also new to this but me and my hua and have been trying for 6 months now, I'm currently 4 days late and experiencing mild period like cramps, but so far nothing...
i don't want to get my hopes up with a test as its so frustrating getting that negative :(
01/12/2015 at 09:02
@Alanareid84 Im sorry to hear about that! It is really hard, most of my friends have fallen pregnant around me this year and im the only one who hasn't...which knocks me back alot! My fiance really wants us to get pregnant so I just want to make him happy but its so upsetting seeing that negative every month! Were quite chilled about it, until the end of every month when im due on, then we turn into hopeful monsters!! lol.
How long have you been ttc? I hope it happens for you soon! xx

@NaomiMen It is horrible getting a negative, ive promised myself that in future i will wait atleast a week of me being late before i test!
Are you usually very regular?
Im keeping my fingers crossed for you!!! :) xx
01/12/2015 at 09:13
@sophieDelts I no It is :( yes I'm normally very regular like 28 days bang on, woke up this morning and still nothing I'm now 5 days late.
How long have you been trying for? Have you had anythingn like this happen be and then got a negative result?
I don't know how long to wait but the suspense is killing me!
01/12/2015 at 09:24
@NaomiMen Oohh that does seem suspicious then! Have you done a test yet? Or do you feel any different?
We've only been trying for about 3 months :) But im taking the Seven Seas tablets and doing everything i should be doing :)
I was 2 weeks late last month and was convinced i was pregnant, but after about 5 negative tests i lost hope and then af arrived :(
Its so horrible!!
01/12/2015 at 09:33
@SophieDelts well for the past few days I've had Mild cramps in my lower abdomen, the thing is I don't normally get anything like this it's only for one day when af comes!
I guess I do feel a little different in some ways, my boobs are quite sore and combined with the dull ache it's not some thing that I've experienced before, i promised myself that I would wait until the 7 day mark to test just incase at comes late :(
its hard when your other half is wanting a positive result I feel your pain too! my husband would be over the moon.
Two weeks late, oh wow i would be frantic if I had to wait that long to get either result!
01/12/2015 at 09:48
@NaomiMen It definitely sounds exciting! :D I really hope you get the news you want :) But I get that you dont wanna get your hopes up!
I think waiting until the 7 day mark is sensible but soo sooo hard!!! haha.
Yes it is, i always feel like ive let him down as i see his sad face every month :( But hes very supportive so I'm positive that we will conceive soon!
I also have PCOS which adds another spanner in the works! :(
It was the longest and most stressful 2 weeks of my life lol!
01/12/2015 at 10:12
I know not long and then I'll bring myself to do the test, it's ridiculous you spe most of your life trying not to get pregnant and then when you want to hapoen its not that simple!
i worked with a girl that had PCOS and was trying so hard every month, on the month that she didn't try. bang, it happened...she now has three children!
im going to keep my fingers crossed for you this month as its Christmas and it would be amazing to get good news now! so I'll let you know what happens when I test!
01/12/2015 at 10:17
I know, i was saying the exact same thing the other day to my partner!! lol.
Ahh maybe I should just relax alot more and let nature do what its gotta do :)
Thankyou, i will also keep everything crossed for you!
Keep me updated! :D

my self and my husband have been ttc for 3 months. It's so stressful and I'm getting really frustrated! I don't feel like my husband really gets it, he's just enjoying the TRYING part!
It would be great to talk to others in the same situation.
I'm 8days till my period, this morning when I went for a wee I have brown stringing cervical fluid And for the last hour or so I've had some minor cramping. Does anyone know what it could be? I tried to googling but so much stuff comes up its scary!
01/12/2015 at 14:57
Hi Emma! :D
Its so frustrating isnt it?! I didnt think it would effect me as much as it has! I thought i was very relaxed...but im not lol!!
Alot of people mention implantation bleeding/spotting? Which they say is often a light brown colour and doesnt stick around for longer than a couple of days. Apparently its very light too and people only notice it when they wipe?
But i've never known anyone personally experience this, so unfortunately i can only advise you by what ive read online :(
01/12/2015 at 15:14
Hey Sophie! Thanks for replying.
yes it was only when I wipe, it was only there with my first two wee's nothing since. The cramps are still there but really minor.
I'm really scared about being pregnant so I might just be reading too much into it.
I have just been looking at other chats and a lot of people mention the IM so I'm really hoping that is what it is and not an ultra early period.
It's pain because I have friends staying this weekend and we are going out, I don't want to have a drink in case I could be but we also haven't told anyone we are trying. And I am going to London on Monday with family and I'm always the one to get on the cocktails so if i don't they are going to be sus! Its so hard. My period is due on Wednesday next week! I don't want to take a test incase it's too early to detect!
01/12/2015 at 15:22
Ohh im really hoping it is for you!!! :)
It sounds as though it very well could be!!
Ahhh I know that feeling!!! Im also going away next weekend with a big group of friends which will involve alot of alcohol! :/ We also havent told anyone we are trying as I dont want to get peoples hopes up! Its bad enough dealing with my partner! lol.
If your period is due on wednesday next week then I've heard first response tests are great at picking it up early, so you could test monday morning? with fmu?
Its a tricky one, which i fully understand because im in the same boat! I want to enjoy a night with friends and not waste the chance if im not pregnant, but I'd also feel so guilty if I was!!
Saying that though, my bestfriend didnt find out she was pregnant until she was 9 weeks gone and we had been out drinking (quite heavily) on 2 occasions. We also went to 2 theme parks. All whilst she was pregnant without knowing. She gave birth to a very healthy little girl a couple of weeks ago. Shes the only person who knows were ttc and shes always telling me not to worry too much!
01/12/2015 at 15:32
It's so hard isn't it! I'm married and 28 so everyone is going on about us having babies! So I didn't want to tell anyone. My best friend is also the only one who knows! She's just had her 3rd baby and keeps telling me to to worry to much! My cousin also didn't find out she was pregnant till she was 10weeks and we had a really heaving night out! She's having a c section on Thursday.
i know everyone is going to be watching to see if I have a drink or not as I am always the one drinking lol.
yes I did say to my husband about getting first respones and taking it Monday morning. It just doesn't help me for the weekend! Lol I think I'll just have one and say I'm cutting back till Christmas! 🙈
01/12/2015 at 15:38
I can definitely sympathize! Im 27 and all my friends are mums. I didnt really want kids for another couple of years but I got diagnosed with PCOS in August so me and my partner decided to start trying and now I dont want anything more than this! lol.
Why dont you try getting some non-alcoholic drink and just have that? I did that last weekend with some wine and just had a few glasses :)
The cutting back for christmas is a good one though, might use that myself ;) I hope they dont suspect anything!
Its so hard keeping it a secret, my parents are desperate to be grandparents aswell and keep going on about it, its so much pressure! Aswell as all my friends asking when im going to have a baby!!
do you have any other symptoms?
01/12/2015 at 15:41
Hello everyone.. I am super new to this website.. just joined cos I saw this post.. I am 30 years old from India. Me and my husband are ttc.. we tried for the first time last month. I was due for my periods on the 4th Dec '15 but got it on 29th Nov '15. I started off as a brownish pinkish discharge and then in a few hours turned into a proper period flow. It still had a lot of brownish discharge in it.. sorry about the TMI.. today is the second day and the flow is not as my usual period flow.. I still need a pad since there is a flow. I am confused.. could this is the IB? I hope it is.. I did have a few symptoms like an increased appetite and itchy nipples. I don't know what to think at this point.. I am trying to remain hopefull..
01/12/2015 at 15:46
Ah Imy sorry to hear that! Fingers crossed it happens soon for you! Always thought it would take me forever so if I am id be very surprised!
I am the last of my friends to have children so I'm getting it from them and my parents and in laws are driving me mad! lol
The alcohol free wine is a good idea, I could have that before we go out and then just have a glass with the meal, hopefully they will be too drunk to notice by then! 😊
I had really sore boobs a couple of days ago and I'm really hungry lol
apart from that and these cramps nothing!
hello @chaitz I think if it was implantation bleeding then it would be abit earlier? and less of a flow :/ but im no expert! lol. Ive read that people who experience it dont need a pad as it is literally just when they wipe :/
Last month when i was late, i experienced a light bleed and i was convinced i was pregnant but then after 4 days af finally made her appearance :(
I would leave it a couple of days and if its still the same then do a test :D
Its so hard waiting isnt it?! x
