Thanks Elizabeth! Well hey there AidansMomma! I guess we have to introduce ourselves..so here it is. I'm Amy and I am TTC for my first child. My husband and I just recently got married, May 1st of this year Love , but have been together now for 5 years. I just adopted his two kiddos who live with us full time and feel very blessed to have had the chance to do this. I have had a little frustration in trying to pinpoint my days of ovulation since we started trying a few months ago. I have a VERY irregular cycle, always have, and that leaves me a little discouraged. I am doing a few things to increase my chances, but so far, it's just a wait and see game for us. Anyway, I hope we can be a support to one another and offer advice and suggestions throughout our journeys! I look forward to getting to know you and wish you the best of luck!!

Hi Amy,
Aidan's mommy here! I am Cyndy, am about to turn 37 next weekend. I have been with hubby (39) for 12 years, married for 3. Our son is almost 16 months old, and we had a miscarriage in February Sad We had been ttc since September, and now again since March. It took a year to get my BFP with our son, and given my age I am pretty stressed out about ttc #2. We both really want another child for Aidan to grow up with.
Right now I am using OPKs and nothing else. I am 4dpo and if this month is a bust I am going to start charting BBT and CM. Keeping my hopes up...even when it is hard to do so!
Best of luck to you in your journey as well!

Hi Cyndy! I'm so sorry to hear about your loss in February, that must have been so difficult after trying for so long. I'm glad you are still trying though and refusing to give up! I am charting my BBT and I thought it was going to be really difficult, and was really suprised when I found that it's pretty easy! That and trying to keep track of my CM and CP are the only ways I have to track when or if I'm ovulating. I did just order some ovulation and pregnancy tests from this site and can't wait to start trying them out. I also take the FertilAid to help regulate my cycle and promote ovulation. My husband and I have not been trying for long, actively about 4 months, but I have a feeling I am in it for the long haul. I just went off birth control in January and that was my last period..still haven't had one. And the reason I was put on the pilll in the first place was to regulate my cycles, since they were wacky and never predictable.

I try to not give up hope that I'm ovulating since I know you can ovulate regardless of having a period or not..but it's discouraging a lot of the time. For now, I'm doing what I can to make my body as healthy as it can be and enjoying loving my wonderful husband Wink

I am absolutely in love with the thought of becoming pregnant and having my little miracle to share our life journey with. I have become very impatient over the last few months..LOL, and it's only getting worse.

I wish you and your hubby the best of luck, and hope that we can build a great buddy forum here and offer support and advice to one another! Here's to the start of a fun friendship! Happy Baby Making!!!

Just wanted to post that I am on CD (Cycle Day) 28 today, and on CD26 I got a faint positive on an OPK and on CD27 took another one and it was much darker! Hopefully that means I am ovulating.... Wink

Hey Amy, I hope your opk line gets darker! BD time for you! This is going to sound completely ridiculous, but I had a visit with a psychic on Friday and she right away said I need to see a doctor about my cervix or uterus adn get my hormone levels checked out - that something is not right. She told me she sees me having another baby - likely a girl. May be silly, but too much of what she said was true for me t o completely ignore her. I am making a Dr's appointment on Monday! LOL!

Welcome girls!

Cyndy-- That sounds like something I would totally do! LOL..and that's not silly at all! Hey, if nothing else, at least you'll get everything checked and know that you're fine, which is a really good piece of info to have when trying to get pregnant. And I know for a fact that a low progesterone level can contribute to a misscarriage...so good luck! Lemme know how your Dr's apt goes! And a girl...that's reallllllllly exciting! Then you could have one of each! lol..

So my OPK line matched the control line for one night on CD27, I took a test on CD28 when I got home from work and the line was practically gone..so I'm HOPING that means I had my LH surge and ovulated. So I had a faint line (noticeable but not as dark) on CD26 and a line that matched the control line on CD27! Which would mean that everything is working! Woohoo Smile Oh, and do you know if you can get a positive OPK and already be pregnant? My sis-in-law thinks she might be pregnant but had a positive OPK..so I wanted to ask this for her.

And this might be a stupid question, but what does "BD" stand for? I know it refers to having intercourse..but what are the initials for?

Can't wait to hear how your apt goes..keep me posted!

Aloha Everyone!

Thanks for the warm welcome!

My name is Liz and I am TTC for #1!! I am 30 (almost 31)---have been with my boyfriend for 11 years (he is 43). We've been actively TTC for 4 months now. I got off the pill a year and a half ago and I've been tracking my cycle for a long time now. I'm pretty regular and I can feel when I ovulate.
I just thought it would be so easy to conceive especially cuz I can feel it when I O. Most of my friends got pregnant in the first month of trying--although they were a lot younger when they started. It's been disappointing for me to keep getting AF! I know it's only been 4 months but it feels like forever! The friends who know I am trying keep asking me and it's depressing to keep telling everyone that I am still trying. Aaackkk!
I am still getting used to all the acronyms so bear with me! I am now 1 day past O (I think) and so I am officially in the 2WW again. We used PreSeed this time so I'm hoping that will help. We've used regular lube all the other times so maybe this time will be better!

FX and baby dust to all of you!

Liz
