Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
31/07/2015 at 09:16
this is my first month TTC and am looking for a group of ladies in the same boat to support each other through the process.
i already have a daughter who is 13 months but i am already 37, so am keen to have another child sooN. I only came off breastfeeding in May, with my first AF in June. I think my cycle is about 32 days (based on the last 2 cycles). I have been using some cheap Internet OPKs and finally got a positive today (CD18). We have been BDing everyday since day 14 and will continue for another couple more days (ie today and tomorrow).
i know how stressful the 2ww and the whole TTC process can be, hence am hoping to start a new thread for all those who would like to share their experienoe and give support.
look forward to hearing from some of you!

I'm now on my second month of ttc baby number 3! It would be lovely to share this journey with you! Hopefully it won't take too long for us both! how long did it take for you to conceive your daughter?
I fell pregnant first month both times With my two who are now aged 4 and 5! So when I didn't fall pregnant last month, I bought some cleablue opk's, my first time of using them..... this month we have been BDing every day from about cycle day 9-13, i used opk's every day until then.... My husband then went away on cycle day 14 for a stag weekend, so I decided to stop using the kitS....
Cycle day 16 (Sunday 26th) I woke up bloated with stomach pains, so around 2pm I decided to take an Opk and unbelievably I got my smiley face my husband came back late that night so we DTD that night and then again twice the next day/night.... Then he went away again on the Tuesday for work..... and Just got back late last night.... So I'm hoping it was a case of perfect timing for us this month.... I'm due on Friday next week, so only a week to wait!! Nervous!!! :/

i am so glad you responded to my post, thank you! so lovely to have someone who is going through the the same thing to chat with.
i fell pregnant quite quickly with my daughter too - third month trying. but I feel a lot more anxious this time around.
so am one week behind you! I'm cd19 today and i took an opk this morning and the line was quite faint compared to yesterday's. I reckon i will ovulate today. Will try BD today but I had a row with DH last night and am not talking to him at the moment...silly I know!!
i hope your 1 WW will fly by!! It sounds like you timed it all very well and you are definitely in with a good chance. Fingers crossed for you.
I know we shouldn't be obsessed with symptoms spotting but you feeling anything yet? With my first, I didn't feel anything. by the time I tested with a clear blue digital, I was 3+ weeks pregnant already.

You're very welcome! Thank you for responding too
oh no I hope the argument gets resolved quickly!! lots of making up tonight
i really do hope that we caught it!! timing was spot on Haha! But just like you I'm feeling more anxious this time.... Maybe because I nieavly thought I would fall first time!! At least we know we are ovulating!!
we just can't help ourselves with symptom spotting can we haha with my first, my daughter, I had none, apart from stomach pains on the day my AF was due... which was a thursday.... I took a test on the Saturday, well about 6 tests haha! I remember we DTD once on cycle day 16!!
with my 2nd, my son, I had no symptoms that I can remember either.... We DTD every day from about cycle day 10-18.... So have no idea when I fell....
this time round so far I having tummy pains, but that's nothing to get my hopes up about really... My body is rubbish at letting me know if I am before a test!! Boo!!
thank you! I hope your 2ww flys by.... I have some early pregnancy tests here waiting... so might take them on Wednesday next week the earliest!!
When do you think you will test? Xx
