Finally started TTC (Oct 12) Anybody else care to join/support?(32 Posts)
After much much waiting, deliberating over 'right times', coming off of nasty medication / mirena coil & finding a time we weren't both shattered from work...DH & I finally started TTC tonight!
Feel a bit excited, not scared that this could be the start of a long long process. Would love to chat to others just starting round about now & share your journey...or please direct me to the most recent thread of this type if there is already a better one (there's so many threads on here & I couldn't find one for people just starting TTC at the moment).
I finally got my period after having my implant removed in September - so now we know that it could happen soon now - never been so happy to have my period - sorry if that's TMI
Still waiting for AF, desperate to be able to get going!
I'm ttc my 3rd little bundle have 2 of my own from a previous relationship who left me and then met my OH, he has no children and has brought my 2 up from 6 months and 18months so he is their dad.
We had a pregnancy scare last month as he didn't want anymore children he said the 2 I have were enough for him but he now wants another one as he thought I was pregnant so he got really excited.
This is our first month ttc so fingers crossed. I have done everything right with timing etc.
I do get worried that maybe he will leave(I don't know why) lol and I'm left with 3 children on my own but I have to put that thought to the back of my head.
I will be testing for a bfp around nov 5th so not long now. Hate waiting though!
Good luck all x x x
Hi, can I join in? I took my last pill at the end of September and I'm still waiting for AF. Trying not to get my hopes up as I know the chances of me being pregnant already are pretty slim so think my body is just taking its time getting back to normal. I am trying not to be impatient.
Hi all. Finally got my clear blue smily face so DH and I Dtd! Lets wait and see but only 1st month of truly TTC. Started taking evening primrose oil, starflower oil and pregnacare conception tablets. My medicine draw looks like a gynae pharmacy shop!
Hi all, DP and I have been trying since the first - although I had my implant out last month I've still not had a period, I am starting to wonder if I managed to get pg immediately after having it out (I should have been ovulating) or if my body is still just trying to settle down form the hell that is the implant
Hi all! New to MN! Can I join! I had my merina removed at the beginning of June and just been casually TTC since then... Going to try a bit harder with ov dates etc from November if this isn't our lucky month! AF due 28/10 so playing a waiting game before any POAS action fingers x'd for everyone else
Oh and sorry if this posts a few times, had a few signal issues with my phone
I've bought a clear blue fertility monitor, and assuming no luck this month I'm now keenly waiting for AF to get going. I hope this increases the odds.
Hi All. Can I join too?! Totally new to MN and TTC. DH and I have been casually shagging for 2 years (although not too regularly due to work pressures!). Visited the doc and now we're trying the OPK method. First one this morning with no smiley face. Its all very new and scary!
Lol symptom spotting is evil, it does crazy things to you. On a few occasions now iv persuaded myself I'm preggers/have cancer/may be infertile thanks to Too Much Dr.Google! But fx it is an early sign for you!
Right, I was on top of the whole trying to behave normally thing. Today however I have wasted time Googling sore boobs, as mine have been hurting for 2 weeks now, and today it's got more painful.
Is it simply a build up to a mega AF or is it a sign? Perhaps a sign of being over eager?!
Clairey - yes! I was on that one!
When I came off it several months ago as we had been looking to TTC then, but waited, it went straight into a regular pattern. Not so sure this time. Three weeks and I've had multiple mini AF/ spotting, three lots of ewcm, sorry if tmi!
After getting stressed about it initially I'm calming down and forcing myself just to give it time. It's frustrating though isn't it!
Hey deliasmithy, wot pill were u on. I was on cerazette n soooo confused bout wots goin on wit me body.x
Yeah same here. The reason we didn't wait longer is I'm certain I was ovulating so if we didn't get moving we'd miss our chance this month. But now I'm feeling pretty bloated & crampy so reluctantly expecting AF anytime soon. Grrr.
Er I waited a day!
But realised I have no idea about my cycle. I'm prepared for AF to come at some point, as disappointing as that would be on one hand, as at least I could then work out dates and things.
Hiya delia how long are you waiting before TTC? We got too impatient & only lasted 3 weeks after coil removal...advice is v inconsistent so hoping all will be ok!
A newbie here, both in terms of MN and TTC.
Stopped pill 3 weeks ago, after waiting til both DH and I were completely ready... Which now means we are both completely impatient! I am 29, desperate tc before I hit the 3-0!
Wow petit ...are you actually me?? Lol. That is very very similar.
I'm so glad you said that, because I feel EXACTLY the same. I posted yesterday on one of the other threads how something really weird happened to me. DH & I have started TTC now and after DTD (sorry if too much info lol!) the other day, I randomly burst into tears. Poor DH was confused & horrified bless him & I couldn't really explain it. But I'm so so emotional about this whole thing. I v much want a baby with him & it's lovely knowing finally someone will be there. At the same time however, part of me felt stronger on my own in pregnancy & with LO - I just made decisions for me & us, didn't stand to get hurt by a man letting us down...that had already happened spectacularly & it couldn't get any worse. Now Im partially overwhelmed by having him there, loving me & doing this as a team. & partially terrified that if he left I really would be broken this time & couldn't stand having a 2nd child I had to "give back" to an absent parent all the time for visits.
Sorry for that waffle lol don't know if any of that rings a bell? I'm also putting so much pressure on the whole TTC / pregnancy being 'perefect' & romantic & wonderful this time. Need to chill out & just enjoy it methinks or it'll never happen!!
Good luck with the coil removal, so far all has been remarkably well with mine...
Hi there - is it ok to join this thread as it seems to be you are very similar to me boymeets! Im' about to start ttc with DH, I have DS age 4 who was from previous marriage and like you he told me he was leaving me when I was pg (10 weeks - nice!). After recovering from disaster relationship, spending 2 years learning to be a single mum, I met DH and 2 years later on we are ready to take the next step.... He is an amazing step dad and I can't wait to have a baby with him (his first).
I'm having my coil taken out next week. Eeek! The only thing is despite being ecstatically happy about our decision I'm also plagued with anxiety about the same thing happening again. Are you worried about this? Or about it affecting your current relationship? Or am I just being paranoid.....
Seems we are all having issues post contraception! I wish I'd never bothered!
Its funny that you spend most of your youth being told how easy it is to get pregnant n you must take every precaution then when you are ttc you realise that it aint all that easy. X
Hi Clairey - tell me about it! Similar with Mirena...these contraceptives don't make life easy!
Hi there, can I join in. I came off cerazette in july, had a period a month later n now still waiting for my next one, its about 2 and a half weeks late, been cramping though n got realy sore boobs. Not pregnant though. Hmmmm who would have thought coming off th pill n ttc would be so confusing.x
Thanks Hooya! I'll go join the other busy bunnies over there too ;)
Hi boy and welcome to the fun of TTC! If you're planning to go with the relaxed approach and not doing temping / charting / ov sticks etc, you may want to check out the Just Shagging thread. A few of us are pretty new to it and
overexcitedly shagging like bunnies just trying to enjoy ourselves and not go mental!
