Laughing Welcome! 

Since you are a new group, you may want to start with an intro and overview of your TTC journey up until this point. 

Have fun!

Elizabeth

Guess I'll start- I know I could sure use some buddies!
I can go by my nickname "CC", I am 28, Dh is 34, we've been ttc #1 for 5 months, this is month 6.... I should note that during this time, my MIL got sick and passed away. (She passed two months after we started ttc) This comes on the heels of my FIL passing really unexpectedly two months prior to our wedding back in 2009.
DH is an only child and has had to shoulder the estate mess himself with a crazy family member who is making things difficult. Add to that my job has gone from moderately stressful to EXTREMELY stressful over the past 2 months. SO, in reality it's not suprising that we have not gotten a BFP. I have started this month doing yoga, taking FertilAid and using pre-seed. I also just ordered Circle Bloom hoping that will help too.
I have been using opk's, so I know when I ovulate. My obgyn encouraged the use of them to help know when to BD and make sure I'm having "regular" cycles. She thinks I might have a slight case of PCOS, but will not do further testing at this point. I've had a transvaginal ultrasound and she said my uterus looks good, but she's not "thrilled" with my ovaries. SO I have to go see a specialist next month who will do a transvaginal ultrasound with doppler... to see what ?? I don't know.
Needless to say that makes me nervous a bit.
I feel discouraged when EVERY month someone is announcing thier baby news. They all say something so stupid like "oh, we just looked at each other and it happened" OR "we only had sex ONCE this month, and bam!" UGH SO ANNOYING!!
DH's attitude is that "it'll happen when it happens"...
Nobody really knows aside from my sister that we are ttc. We decided it was best not to say anything to anyone until we were at least 8 weeks along in a pregnancy to say something...BUT each month that passes and when AF shows up, I want to scream. I am hoping this board helps as an outlet, with other women whom are also ttc- becuase this whole process is VERY emotional!! Baby Dust to you all Smile

Laughing out loud Figured it out Wink
Fingres crossed as I enter the dreaded TWW..... hope I can make it till the end of at least 10 days before I take a pregnancy test....... lol
Last month I wasted so many tests I'm kind of ashamed of myself..... I kept hoping it was a different answer becuase my period was 2 days later than normal. BUT it wasn't....

Im the same I think I used test and all BFN Sad

I had heard about it though anther forum, Its supposed to make you have more EWCM and less acidic(sp) then normal which is great for sperm to live in because the more acidic kills sperm, Hope that makes sence lol

Gosh this cycles going so slow... I wish I was in the TTW Smile

How have you been feeling?
