Trying to conceive

Hello and welcome to Midterm trying to Conceive (MTTC). A place for us lot who have been trying for a while and lost our TTC sparkle. No need to post daily, or even weekly, but somewhere to offer support and advice when it’s needed.
Looking forward to getting to know you all!

I'm not really sure where I fit anymore, and would quite like to post both here and the TTC thread if that's allowed? We've been TTC for very nearly a year now. Some months I'm more optimistic than others.

Of course! You can post wherever you want to :)

Hello! Think I fit in here still! On cycle 9 now, which I know isn't that long but with everything that's happened ttc has definitely lost it's sparkle :(

Hello! I'm not sure how much i'll be on as i wasn't really for the idea of splitting the board BUT i will give it a go perhaps as a lot pf others seems to be looking forwards to.
H and i are officially not trying to not get pregnant and we'll see what happens. For those of you who don't *know* me i have a 15 month old daughter but a very chequered history with TTC and early pregnancy. The whole pregnancy was actually very stressful too! The road to getting my baby was not easy and i'm fairly anxious about starting the journey aging, hence the just not trying to not get pregnant for now! MTTC was a fabulous source of support and advice when i was previously TTC so it would be lovely if we could keep the thread going.

Hi all, I'm totally fed up with the whole TTC thing now. It's been over a year & nothing. Hoping the changes to the board will make me more positive rather than the 'it's never going to happen' attitude I'm currently fighting. It's nice to see familiar faces, and a few new ones on the MTTC thread. Looking forward to us all chating and supporting each other.

Hi girls! Just wanted to pop my head in and say hello! I'm sorry for not being round much but thoroughly fed up with TTC! It's been 11 cycles now and I'm at the point of thinking that we might give up. Anyhoo, its good to see you all and thanks for starting the thread OB. I promise to keep a hand in.

Hello Ladies - I recognize most of you from reading (should that be stalking?) the MTTC threads over the last few weeks or from the old hitched days. I figured the move to our own board was a good time to post in this bit properly. I know I've not been trying as long as some of you (7 months/3 cycles) but I've definately lost the TTC sparkle and hope you don't mind me tagging along here instead!

I think this will be my home, we're on cycle 9, getting cheesed off now thinking it will never happen to us, I'm 40 so age is not my ttc friend.
Hope we all get the bfp's soon :)

Hello ladies, seeing some faces I recognise here - I guess thats good and bad!
I’m not even sure now how many months we’ve been trying... (counts on fingers...) Ok, it’s 18 months since we started. Bah, that makes me sad. I haven’t tracked now for the last 5 or 6 months, wondering if I should start again, though to be honest when I look back at the end of every month we’ve always covered all bases, so I’m not sure what difference it would make!

Its a hard one isnt it OB.
I am very lucky that i get very obvious (and painful!) signs of ovulation. I am also very happy that my cycles seem to be exactly 42 days, so even tho i have been mega gutted not to get a BFP the last couple of cycles, everything has been spot on timing wise, so i am fairly confident that along with that, and the obvious signs, we are covering as much as we can. The only frustrating thing is that i wish they were shorter than 42 days, but i cant really do anything about that so i just have to get on with it.

Havnt been around much - combination of trying not to think about getting pregnant and actually having to work in my new job but as I am 3 months in now I guess we should be really TTC again (probation period 6 months). Been over a year now & if no luck before christmas Doc says to go back & he'll start referring me etc.
Only good thing is my periods are more regular so that can only mean more chances...right?!
Nice and sorry to see some familiar faces....
29/05/2013 at 08:42
Nice to see you!
Fab news about your cycles, defo means more chances altho i really hope you dont need many x

Hey all. Am not tracking or temping at all this month *shock horror* I took the thermometer to turkey but then thought why bother? I'll be drinking every night, restless sleeps and hot hot weather. Will no doubt regret it later in my cycle, esp if AF goes awol. I still haven't pinpointed a reliable LP length despite having good charts for months now. Anything from 12 to 17!!!
Anyway its only cd10 so wont be expecting to ov til at leasy day 18 but maybe as late as 23

I'm suspicious this cycle is going to be another big one. My temps didn't drop like they have previously when my AF arrived last cycle and some gut feeling is telling me I'm in for the long haul this time round. Dammit! Really hope I'm proven wrong and this unusual temp pattern is a sign something is going to happen 'normally' instead :)

Sorry you think that PS - i have everything crossed that it isnt as long as you think it may be x
