All my (adult) life I have been so careful with contraception, so worried about any slips. It seemed so easy, scarily easy to get pregnant. And now? 4 months doing everything right, eating right, no drinking, no smoking, plenty of sleep, conception vitamins (which are huge and taste rank), tracking everything, pissing on no end of sticks to check ovulation and too much time waiting for non existent second lines.

Gwah! I just want to be pregnant!!

Bloody body is gearing up for another period and I feel like pants. angrysad

I know you don't want to hear it but in the world of conception 4 months is not long...
How old are you? Drs won't be interested until at least 6 months or a year if you're youngish with no other known problems. Sorry.

I remember this feeling so well. I had been convinced that I would be pregnant within a second if one errant sperm escaped anywhere near me. And then DD1 took 6 months, which is nothing in the scheme of things but at the time felt like forever. It isn't very long, try not to think about it too much and enjoy life now before it changes forever!

Just be warned though, after that experience, I didn't bother thinking about contraception after she was born, just assumed it wouldn't happen instantly, and then DD2 managed to be conceived about the only time we had sex in the first 6 months after DD1 was born!

I know 4 months isn't long at all in the grand scheme of things. And I'm trying not to obsess about it all but this really is the perfect time for me to be pregnant and due to work related matters each month makes that much of a difference as to if it will work. As I said. I'm trying not to obsess - obviously I fail a lot on that score.

Gwah. Oh well, what will be will be. At least now I can have a glass of wine tonight.

Thank you for the messages. I just needed a moan and groan.

My GP said I shouldn't give up drinking as it wouldn't be any fun giving up all treats for as long as it took. I got pregnant the month of a boozy gig and my boozy hen do...drinking won't stop you getting pregnant!

Hello, I'm TTC #1 and I felt exactly like you on month 3 and 4. I'm just about to start month six and for some reason iv just let it all go. I think it gets hard around month 4 as you start to realise ok this isn't going to happen straight away. I Recently have tried to keep busy which has helped alot I know I'm on here now but it's the first time iv been on here in ages and I know it helps some but For me not being on here every day stopped me thinking about it. Iv had 5 people announce they are pregnant in the time iv been trying and I am the last of my friends that doesn't have a baby or pregnant. But for some reason last month and now this one iv sort of stopped caring and accepted it will happen when it happens xx
