Hi Tleenders3,
We got preseed this last cycle so i'm praying i get bfp in a week or so!! I had tried fertility blend earlier this year but couldn't pop the pills regularly so probably didn't work.
We're getting medical opinion - i've actually been to the doctor's and got some bloodwork done but haven't gonr back - FX on this cycle being "it"!!!
If this cycle stinks, then i'll order opk and take it from there. not sure i can bbt - takes too much discipline Smile
Baby dust ladies...

Hi Vorke!
How are things going today? I see your right at the end of your cycle!! Any signs of BFP?! Have you had a chance to go back to the docs to hear how the blood work went? I'd be so curious to know if my body is working as it should, and eager to try something different/new if they did find an issue. DH and I have talked about making an appointment with a doctor if we don't have a BFP by September. By then we'd be 9 months into TTC. What are your thoughts on the preseed? Likes, dislikes?

FX for your today!

Hi Tl,
my ticker's actually wrong - will correct it but i'm on the last day of my cycle - haven't seen AF yet but not doing any test... just FX.....

Preseed was fun - don't use the recommended amount though cos its usually still too much. I don't usually produce much CM but with the preseed, it was nice - inserted it like 20mins before we bd'd and it was like i produced it myself.... When it got too sticky at a point, we simply wiped off and continued having fun ( TMI)... I really hope i can write a BPF in a few days!!!

how r u doing?

Hi Vorke
I just read your post on your blog. Sorry to hear that AF showed this month. Sad I can totally understand wanting to take a break. Enjoy yourself and the chance to relax, not stress, and just enjoy being with DH. I hope you two patch things up soon. Thinking of you!

Hi Vorke
How are things going with you? Have you been enjoying your spring? Our month of May was full of rain, but ever since June arrived we've had lots of sunshine and heat, it feels like the middle of July! How is your cycle? With taking a break did you decide to not think about your cycle at all? Or are you still kind of looking out for O? I've been thinking about how nice it would be to take a break from TTCing, but then it has become such a big part of my day, I think it would drive me crazier to not know where I'm at. And one wonderful thing about BBTing, is I always know when to expect my period. I wish I had learned about BBT long before we tried to TTC just for that!

I've POAS twice in the last few days. Saturday (our 4 year anniversary of our first date, thought it would be cute to get a BFP) and the other this morning. Both negative. Temps are still up nice and high though, so perhaps we will get our wished positive in a few days. Here's to hoping!

Taking a break -supposed to not think about my cycle but i can't seem to tune out - even though i know we ddin't bd, i keep noticing my boos are bigger, i notice the O pains, i feel like i'm in 2ww....mmmm physchology!!!

Good thing is DH has agreed to do the SA test so at least we'll know where we're going to!!

RAIN RAIn RAIn... mmm don't even want to go on about the weather!!!!

So what's up with your cycle now? I should start again with the next cycle - AF is due in 3 days...

Hi Vorke,
I imagine it would be difficult to not think about our cycles anymore. Now that we've spent so much time focussed on them, how can we just ignore the signals. But it's nice to just take a step away from it, and just go with the flow, rather than planning, planning, planning. We're you glad to have the little break? That's great that your DH is doing an SA. Praying for good results!!

We've been very lucky weather wise over the last week. Mid to high 20's and sunshine! But they are calling for rain today and the next couple days. We're in the middle of cycle 8. We're just trying to take things at a more relaxed pace. BD when we want, rather than when we should. Hopefully it works! My DH has been considering taking the SA test. We'll see how this cycle goes, and then he will decide.

I am new here and so relieved to find a forum where everyone feels the same as me! I think my husband gets tired of me talking about my cycle every day of the week. He wont say it because he wants a baby as much as me.

I am 28 years old and recently took a step down from my job as a grocery store manager - I wanted to reduce the stress and hours to prepare myself for a baby. My husband is 30 and a police officer. We been togather for over 6 years and married for 3 years - Been wanting a baby for a year but just started trying in May. so I am still new at the whole trying to concieve. I really thought I would get pregnant the first time so I been kind of down and feeling a bit of a failure Sad But try and try again right?

We are not using anything besides me tracking my cycle. I have tracked my cycle for years - In the first part of our marriage I did that instead of taking birth control because I had a weird effect taking it in the past. if I dont get pregnant this time I hope to maybe try some products next time - But I keep hoping I get pregnant! I cant explain how much I really want this!!!!

Welcome stargazer! We were the same, thought we would be pregnant the first or second cycle we tried. Both DH's and my parents had no problem conceiving, and my sister conceived on her third cycle. So we thought it would be no problem for us. But we keep reminding ourselves that the average couple is pregnant within a year of trying, so we still have a little ways to go before worrying. So you and your DH are just starting to TTC! It is a lot of fun! DH has a friend who conceived in the first month, and he was sad because he was figured it would take a few months, and he was excited to BD a lot, haha! Anyways, I guess I suggest to just have fun! Enjoy all the intimate times with your DH as you try, and hopefully your BFP will follow soon! Where are you at in your cycle right now? What's your average cycle length? It's great to have you join us!
