Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
14/02/2017 at 22:33
my OH and myself are trying for our first child. I think I have exhausted him already with all the baby chat....looking for other people in the same situation to talk to. Hopefully, we can share our journeys together and help each other along the way.

Meeee!!! i feel like all I talk about is babies. Ovulation. Period. DTD.
My husband is probs bored of it lol x

I feel as if my OH is bored of it as well! How long have you been TTC for? We have been trying for a year and a half, and I'm starting to think I might have PCOS or fertility problems :/ So I keep getting upset now and again about how long it is taking to fall pregnant x

It's really frustrating isn't it. I came off the pill last April so just went with the flow. I thought it may take a few months for my AF to return to normal but it came straight back. I was just using the apps to try and track everything and only started using OPKs since dec/jan. I wanted to not pressure ourselves but now it seems we have to schedule dtd and it feels a lot less fun.
If you have been trying over a year without success you can go to the docs and they can do a blood test to make sure you are defo ovulating and that your hormone levels are all normal. Sometimes it may be a lack of progesterone... worth a try xx

I actually went to the doctors on Friday, because I have been having really bad pain, on my lower abdomen, and where I imagine my ovaries to be :( Also I haven't had a AF since last May, and I got the implant removed at the start of October 2015, and I was having regular AF's until May, then they just stopped. So I'm getting sent for an ultrasound, hopefully in the next week or so.
And yeah, I was tracking everything when we first started trying, but I was getting too stressed out about tracking everything, so I've stopped doing that, but there still hasn't been any luck x

Our bodies are complicated things aren't they!!! I know it's easier said than done but try not to stress. The more we stress the harder things become. hopefully when you have your scan you will know better. fingers crossed there is no issues and then you get peace of mind.
im currently on the 2ww. After this month I am going to do OPKs near when I think OV is due and then that is it.
Planning when tdt is making it more of a chore than fun so that doesn't help either.
When is your scan?xx

I'm 29 and after years of trying to find myself, find the right man, and finding a good job and place to settle down I'm TTC my first. I'm excited but nervous and I think that the stress is affecting my ability to conceive... been trying for a few months, and each time the 2 week wait kills me, especially since my periods keep coming later each month (for the past two months). I think my body is pranking me. -.-

hiya I'm new on here too. me and my husband been trying three months and I also feel so stressed every time it's the two week wait which I'm in now. Doesn't help my periods are so irregular anyway. Range between 30-35 days . I always thought I would get pregnant straight away as my mum and nan did but it hasn't happens that way 😥 I hope it's not too much longer feel like it's driving me crazy and it's only been a few months ! Also fed up with everyone questioning when are you having a baby and youre pregnant yet ? Really getting me down x

NDG, I thought I had replied earlier😓 and I always hated the TTW, it seemed to be the longest 2 weeks ever! Especially when you have really long cycles, that vary month to month😭 and I know what you mean, every time I was ovulating -or at least I thought I was- I would say to my OH "right we need to DTD now", at the end up of watching the opks, he said to me that he thinks I just make it up, so that we would DTD constantly😂
Hi Oatmeal! When I was tracking my ovulation on the apps and everything, I was getting so stressed out etc by it all, that I ended up stopping tracking it all🙁 I hadn't had an AF in 3 months when I gave up😕 even though we are still technically trying, if I'm not having an AF, I'm not producing an egg, but each month, when AF doesn't show up, I think, maybe we caught it this month...still hasn't happened though🙁
BabyGirl, welcome! And when I was at school and everything, you would have all the health people say about how you have to use condoms and be on the pill etc. And they always made it seem so easy to fall pregnant, and then when you actually try, it seems like you've been trying for years🙁x

I know I don't know why I always thought it would be so easy and would fall pregnant just like that l. I didn't expect it to be so stressful and feel so anxious I feel like all I think about is wanting a baby 😥 .. it's probably not helping but I can't help it. accoring to opk I ovulated last Monday (cd 21) so when would be the best time to do a pregnancy test. I done one today 🙄🙈 which was negitive but think it's too early in a nightmare and can't wait. Only symptoms I have that ate out the ordinary is extra thirsty of a night therefore weeing more and some strange twinges in my stomach and gas .. but maybe this is all down to me being anxious as I want it so bad x
15/02/2017 at 18:21
If you ovulated last Monday, the earliest you would be able to test would be sunday/Monday time😕 I hated that though, I would always get too impatient during the TWW and test early, then think to myself that it's only negative because I didn't give it enough time and then end up spending a fortune on pregnancy tests x
15/02/2017 at 18:47
Yeah I must have wasted so much money on pregnancy tests but there's always thatvoottle part of you that hopes you might get a positive. I can't wait to see that positive line ! really need to try and relax about it all 😥
15/02/2017 at 19:34
I took a test before going to the doctors on Friday and my OH said that he can't wait for the day that he can come through and say that it is positive....I feel like, the more that I want it, the less chance of it actually happening 😕 they always say, that stress is actually the best contraception
15/02/2017 at 21:00
Yeah, I've been sexually active since 16, and now, being almost 30, I almost regret not trying sooner. Unfortunately, it took a long time to get my life in order and now I'm just hoping I'm not too late. Most of my friends had kids in their early 20's and I don't even care that I'll be the "old mom" on the playground, I just can't stop thinking about having a kid now. ugh.
15/02/2017 at 21:09
I'm sure it will happen for us all soon. It's just a waiting game ! .. and a very tough one at that. I'm such an organised person and always plan everything .. and this is one thing you defiantly can't plan that makes it even harder I think ! And oatmeal 30 is not old to have kids nowadays .. people even have babies in there early 40s these days ! My cousin actually just fell pregnant whilst on the pill and she's 33 .. think we all need to relax as much as possible and it will happen try to think positive although I know how hard it is !! X
15/02/2017 at 22:31
I was ready an article earlier and it said that 29 years old was the best age to have a child at.
BabyGirl, I'm like that too, I like planing everything, and having lists and having a game play etc. It's so frustrating not having any control over this😭x
15/02/2017 at 22:45
The 2ww is the killer and then for AF to show up makes it worse. Ugh.
Ive only done 2 preg tests, its so so tempting but I decided after those that I would just wait for AF to be late before I did one.
this cycle seems harder as every little twinge or ache I get I keep thinking "could it be preg related"
ironic we spend our younger years trying so hard to not get pg and now we want it, it's not so easy grr.
our BFP will come, soon I hope xx
16/02/2017 at 16:35
NDG, I know the feeling! My breath are really sensitive just now, and I keep feeling sick with certain smells, and I keep thinking "maybe I'm pregnant" even though, I know deep down that I'm not😕
Hopefully, our BFP'S will come soon...and plus, we all have each other to go through the journey with 😁x
16/02/2017 at 17:14
yes Rebecca, need all the positivity and encouragement we can get.
When is AF due?x
16/02/2017 at 17:17
Technically, it's due on the 20th, but I've not had an AF since May 2016...hence why I'm getting sent for the ultrasound😕
When is yours due?x
