Trying to conceive

Hi, I'm new on here,nearly 32 and very broody! We began trying in June and I naively thought Id be pregnant that Summer! In retrospect it was abit half hearted for the first few months. We have been trying more rigorously though for the past two months (eg every two days throughout my cycle aside from when im bleeding) but still no joy. I appreciate we havent been trying for any time at all as the stats go but it still feels gutting. I have a lot of admiration for everyone on here who is still upbeat and determined much further down the line. My sister (1 year younger) had a baby in Summer and I have close friends who, like her, conceived in 1-2months. I assumed we would be the same. Cant believe how hard it is-you never got taught that in school! These forums are wonderful support networks and reassuring to hear it is normal for it to take time. This is a topic people tend to not be open about so it is great to have a place where people open up!

This is my 12th month TTC. I really understand that frustration each month when we get the BFN. I'm 33yo and have a 12yo son conceived naturally to a previous relationship.
Today I commenced my first day of Clomid. I take Metformin too for mild PCOS. I have regular cycles and hubby is young and fit (27yo). Hoping this month is going to be the one.
Lots of love and positive vibes

Cheers for the replies. I keep reading too much into every ailment too eg. i have had bad belly ache for 3 days and i think im just constipated but the other half of me says ';maybe thats a pregnancy symptom'.so silly!

I do the same thing during my two week waits. lol. Analyze every niggle. I think its just natural when you want it so bad.
Trying to chill this round and put it in the back of my mind.... easier said than done though
I dont think you're silly though hun.

My cycle is 28 days but was 23 this month...go figure? However as much as I want to think that means something I dont see how it can since I had a period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ive never quite got the hang of the LH surge indicators so will hopefully try n crack that one this month. Keeping trying x
It really helps me having others to chat to-hope it does you too x

hey girls, I hope some of you have struck lucky We are still trying but I am feeling more optimistic now as someone I know who had to go through lots of IVF, recently announced she was 3 months preggers so that gives me-who is currently trying naturally- lots of hope! love to all x

Hi all, doctors have sent me for blood tests, progesterone, testosterone and oestrogen among them....I know, testosterone???really?? But apparently girls have testosterone in them too! Possible chemical imbalance...hopefully will get some results to work from! babydust to all x
