I am 26. My husband and I have been together for 8 1/2 years, married for just over 1. We have been not NOT trying since the wedding...with nothing to prove. Up until two weeks ago, we worked completely opposite schedules. I worked in a school from 8-3:30, he worked at a rail yard from 2-10pm. Luckily, he just got his hours switched to 6am - 2pm. We are still trying to get used to seeing each other every day.

I haven't been all about finding my fertile days and whatnot...to tell you the truth, up until December, the last period that I had was in August. That being said, my cycles are VERY irregular, varying from 29 days to over 100 sometimes. I have gained a lot of weight since high school, and am not proud of it, but when I talked to the doctor about my cycles in December, was told I was young and healthy and not to be concerned (this all said without testing or looking at anything). My mom has cycles that are also very irregular, and had 4 healthy babies with no intervention...still I can't help but wonder if there is something going on with me. Sad

This month, I have started taking my temperature every morning around 4:30. I don't sleep well at night, and so I feel like that would impact my temp, but am still trying to figure myself out. My temp was quite a bit higher today, but still BFN on the OPKs...so??? Has anyone used the Fertile Focus Saliva test?? I bought it a few months ago, and I have seen some DEFINITE changes, but not sure what the general consensus was about it.

I am glad that I found you ladies...it seems that everyone around me is pregnant, has babies, or doesn't want them...so no one in the same boat as me. Although I am happy for all of them, it is getting harder and harder to hear their stories and see pregnant people.

Thanks again for including me!
Megan

Welcome Megan! Smile
I have not tried the saliva test, and are you getting at least 3 full hours of sleep before you take your temp at 4:30? Goodluck, ttys.

Hi Girls,
So happy to be buddies with all of you! Thanks!
I am 34 (my clock is ticking away) and my DH is 36. We just got married Aug. 2009 and have been TTC ever since for our first bundle of joy. Back in Oct. I thought I had a BFP but ended up to be an evaporated line. It was very disappointing because I got my hopes up high that this was "IT" & then AF.
I took a break from the boards for awhile thinking that I was getting to stressed out about the whole thing. We decided to just have fun & not chart anything. Well, here I am a few months later with NO BFP. Sad I know it will happen but it's so hard to sit back and wait.
I missed having a support team & knowing I'm not going through this alone.

I Look forward to getting to know each of you & sharing our stories together.
GL & FX for all....
Janice Smile

Yay Janice!

So how many cycles ttc is everyone? We are on cycle 8, and if af shows nextweek then cycle 9. I don't know how much more of this I can handle. I think I've talked dh into a sa if we get to the next cycle. Let's hope we don't get there!

I'm in CO being cold with a horrible cold right now. Ick.
