Hi cnicole! Congrats on your I hope you have spread some on the rest of us who are hoping for the same thing this month! I hope everything goes great for you and baby. So exciting! :)

HI again Magenta! Yes, I completely agree with you too. I can already feel a difference this month from last month with my thoughts and less stress. I'm happy and excited to be trying with my DH so I am going to try to let nature run its course and give me the news when I'm ready for it. :) Even though I'm charting everything for the first time, I'm not worried about anything and I'm not going to be looking at the calendar every day anymore. I'm only on CD 6 today so I will start using OPK's soon but that's it. We are also testing my DH to see if everything is ok with him as well. It's only been 5 months but I would like to just rule out any issues that may come up later if possible. TTC in your 30's is rare from what I've seen but I'm glad I'm not the only one out there starting later in life. :)

Keep me posted with your progress and we can both try and NOT think about ANY symptoms we come up with in our heads. ha ha . I will keep everyone updated as well.

& to everyone out there who is also TTC

I'm on CD9 so we can do our opks together but NOT care about them and have lots of fun with our DH as we usually do! I'm in Melbourne Australia and almost everyone I know TTC is in their 30s so just depends where u live. Where are you?
Where's everybody else live?

Hi there, been such a busy week at work I've hardly stopped think about opks. You must be about CD14 right? I'm CD21 and not feeling anything. You?

HI Magenta,

Now I'm at CD24 and 11 DPO and i tested this morning for the first time and I got a BFN :( so I'm pretty sad today actually. I thought I did everything right and still nothing. Guess I will try for an August BFP without really "trying" anymore. I think I might just not monitor or chart or test this next month. Not sure yet. Just feeling down. :(

How about you?

Hi there, I also got a BFN yesterday on 12DPO. I did 2 OPKs and that's it- didn't even wait for a + on the OPK. We just BD every 2nd day from day 10 onwards more or less. It was way less stressful for me and DP and I think I'll do that again for August. I am still considering a fertility monitor though. Try and stay positive :)

Hello there... I was following this forum last month, but I went into this really bad depression on part June and part of July, that I just decided to stay away from anything that had to do with TTC. It really helped ease the pain and anxiousness of not being able to get a BFP so far.
Anyway, I'm ready to face a new chapter and another cycle.
I'm 22 yrs old (DH is 26), we've been TTC since January...so its been 7 unsuccessful cycles so far.
After coming out of this short depression, I feel ready to start trying again.

I would love to make new buddies, and help and support each other :)
I've learned a few things in this journey and I would love to share that if anybody needs help.
I'm on CD13 (out of a 29-30 day cycle)...so I suppose I'm close to ovulation time.

Thank u for reading and I wish all the best. :)

Hello nlara! I completely understand your frustration and depression. I am right there with you. This month will be my and my DH's 6 month of TTC since March this year and I felt terrible last month when I didn't get a BFP. I feel like it will never happen to me and I cried alot.
I am not doing as much this month as last. I was charting everyday, and logging my "so called" symptoms just to get a in the end. It is discouraging even when you find out someone close to you or on here got a and its hard to be happy for them.
At least thats how I felt.
I am going to try to have fun with it this month and not "stress" as much about it. Let's not stress about it together and bring eachother much and when the time comes. My cycles are averaging 26 days so today I'm on CD 4. Did you O yet?
to you!!

Hi Naria! I think i remember you from the earlier posts - or maybe i remember a similar avatar picture. :) This is Anna - i got back from the States a few weeks ago back to my husband in Dublin. I just wanted to tell you I understand and did the same thing.. I was getting too obsessed and stressed out about TTC.. ultimately causing anxiety and depression. After 6 weeks away from forums and TTC books and even google :) (..i cut off completely!) -- I am back and so happy to see this series is still continuing.

Background::
I am 30 and my husband is 28. This is our 5th cycle of trying since March. We took a break off last month while I was home visiting my family. I came back to Ireland 2 weeks ago right in time to start trying again :) and right now is my CD 29. My cycles are between 25-30 days.

One odd thing that only occurred once last week was i had to wake up at 3am to go to the bathroom. I felt nauseous after that but just fell asleep.. next morning i threw up and felt the same way all day. Next day I was back to normal!

One thing I can share w you ladies is that this month we are trying a new approach for my own sanity-- I am trying to maintain as much normalcy as best as possible. It helps that Ive been swamped at work and helps me forget about time. Friday nights, I still have a glass of wine w my husband. (vs cutting out alcohol 100% before.) I enjoy it and it definitely mellows me out. He is getting me interested in other things to get my mind off 2WW like mountain biking. =\ I know not something i can fully vest into, but i actually found myself on bike websites this whole time and not reading other womens 2WW symptoms!! And just now was first time logging into the preg forum. :) I am proud of myself for letting these last 2 weeks fly by. And now... the next few days will be agony. Hehe. Good luck girls!! Thinking about you all! :)

** Anna

I'm in the same boat as u ladies. I got off the forums cuz I think it was stressing me out. I"m 9dpo now..got a today and even though I know its early still..i don't think i'm pregnant. I'm at a point where I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel at this point and I feel like I'll never get pregnant. I started ttc in Nov 2011..so this is cycle 9. I'm giving it until January which will be 14 cycles before i go see a specialist. right now i just feel like..i'm all out of hope. I do keep trying but it seems like everyone around me right now is pregnant and getting pregnant so easily that it sucks. sorry to be a downer lol.

this month though i have been less stressed and have not been obsessing over everything. and luckily time has passed by. I havent been logging every symptom or every bbt like i did before. and time has passed by pretty quickly..it wasnt until yesterday when i had to go to the pharmacy to pick up some stuff that i was like hmmm..maybe i should pick a pregnancy test..i tried to stop myself but yeah..didnt work. lol. so we'll see how the rest of this week goes.

Congrats Angel! I'm on the same cycle as you (O'ed on 7/28, in my TWW now, 10DPO...) so I'm hoping for a BFP sometime this week. I tested last night (even though I knew it was probably too early) and got a BFN. Not sure when I'm going to test again.

Congrats to you! I hope your BFP is a true positive!

That's great! So happy for you! I might just have to test tonight!

Have you had any symptoms?

I *think* my bbs are sore but that might just be in my head. I'm completely exhausted, but I just got back from a weekend out of town so I might be from the traveling. Ugh, the TWW is terrible!

you know..surprisingly..ive had LESS symptoms than i normally do with pms. so..not really..my boobs are sore but thats a normal pms symptom for me so i didn't really think about it. some bloating and gas which is also a normal pms thing for me. i really didn't think i was pregnant..especially cuz this month i've been sort of doing everything half hearted. but we did bd a lot around ovulation time.
good luck to you! test again tomorrow and let me know.

Another BFN tonight. I know it's still early so I'm trying to be hopeful. I guess I'll try again tomorrow. Hoping to get a BFP this month or next for an April or May baby!

Congrats Angeluv! :) So happy for you! People say that it will happen when you least expect it but for you, even though you were doing thins half hearted (like me this month as well) it still happened for you. It just proves that it will happen when a good egg comes along on a good month and you are prepared whether you know it or not. My sister keeps telling me that when my body is completely ready for a baby it will happen and I shouldn't worry about it.

I started thinking about the big picture and what I thought of what me and my husbands future. I can't see a future for us without children so I KNOW it will happen. I just need to be patient and that is my worst trait honestly.

I'm on O day today and even though I've prepared as much as I can (prenatals, timing) I haven't even used more than 2 OPK's all month. I just don't think about it as much and let nature take its course and bd whenever possible at this point.

I hope my luck is as good as yours was this month.

:)

Awh congrats Angel!! I'm so happy for you! Not sure if you will be checking in. I'm dropping in once a month now to see how things are going. We aren't TRYING anymore.. Just letting it happen. I also got a puppy :) so keeping happy and relatively stress free w her. Hope it works. Currently on day 15 or 16 of 32 day cycle. We are BD for 2 more days before my husband leaves the country for 5 days. Oh well.. At least puppy will keep me busy. This is huge progress!!
