Hi all, title says it really!!
I'm f*#%!?g gutted!! I really don't think I can deal with it, we have been trying for a month and I know it's stupid to feel like this but I can't help it! I feel like I'm a failure...AND I have no chocolate in the house!!!!
Sorry just needed to let off some upsetness!
Baby dust to all TTC xxxxxxx

Sweetie I got my af today, I'm 23 and on cycle 11, your not a failure xx

OrangeLily Sat 11-May-13 19:54:12

If it helps it means that you get anther try!

There's lots of people on here with issues.
I'm on month seven but only about five cycles due to irregular and long cycles.

Day 41 and no sign of AF.

80% of couples will conceive in the first year!!

lyndsey90 Sat 11-May-13 19:56:59

Guess I'm gonna be one of the 20% wash!

lyndsey90 Sat 11-May-13 19:57:27

Waah* damn phone....

OrangeLily Sat 11-May-13 20:00:20

Sorry lyndsey hmm I was trying to make the OP feel better.

I will probably be too. Doesn't look like Im ovulating confused having a few wine this weekend because I can because Im not pregnant.

lyndsey90 Sat 11-May-13 20:03:18

I'm at work tomorrow so cannot indulge in the drowning of sorrows lol! Just need to hold my head up! I did have a chemical preg in Jan, least I know I'm kinda fertile! smile

OrangeLily Sat 11-May-13 20:05:55

Work - shit
Chem preg - shit
Fertility - yaaaaay!

johnandkymberley Sat 11-May-13 20:27:35

Thankyou both for your posts. I'm glad I'm not alone, although wishing you both loads of baby dust!!
I think I feel so bad because all my friends have caught in the 1st or 2nd month of trying and I suppose because I knew that I thought that would happen to me?!

We will see if there is any blood this week! AF due on Saturday

I have been out and bought a four pack of flake and caramel - couldn't choose so bought both!! A multi pack if haribos and a double pack of Jaffa cakes!!
It's out first year wedding anniversary tmoz so trying to keep happy for that smile

OrangeLily Sat 11-May-13 20:30:43

Fingers crossed for you. Our anniversary is fairly soon too.

A month is really nothing to get overly anxious about. Do you mean a month or is that a typo?

Less baby dust, more shagging.

JethroTull Sat 11-May-13 20:54:46

In a month there's only about a 72 hour window when you can actually get pregnant.

johnandkymberley Sat 11-May-13 22:20:26

No I do mean a month!!! That's why I say I know it seems stupid but that's just how I feel!! I have been checking my CM - (not for the faint hearted!!) and I know when I ovulated etc and we had sex within that window etc

I know this seems a funny question but can you fake yourself into thinking your havin period pains?? I think I might of?? Xxxx

FriendofDorothy Sat 11-May-13 22:29:37

You might HAVE you mean.

Maybe you are pregnant. Maybe you're not. You'll have to wait and see, and if you are then you are bloody lucky to get pregnant so fast. However, the likelihood is that you isn't so I suggest you ease up for a few months, don't get too stressed just yet and enjoy shagging in an uncomplicated fashion.

johnandkymberley Sun 12-May-13 10:09:54

Okay, we'll I'm hoping I am obviously. It's not impossible to get pregnant in one/two months, 3 of my friends have all done that!! That's why I think I expect it to happen quickly, if that makes sense? Xxx

FriendofDorothy Sun 12-May-13 11:08:16

My sister got pregnant fast too - it seemed like she just took her knickers off and got pregnant - as did most if my friends.

It took us nearly 2 years and the expectation it was going to happen quickly made the length of time we had to wait even more painful.

johnandkymberley Sun 12-May-13 18:42:32

Hiya, sorry to hear that Dorothy, I think I am too impatient!!! Patient is better said that done!!!

Earliest I can do a HPT is Wednesday but might wait if I can!!!

AF is due on sat/sun

brettgirl2 Sun 12-May-13 18:58:32

for future reference you get af pains of you are preg ime. Both of my pregnancies started with the feeling af was arriving slightly earlier than usual.

FingersCrossedLegsNot Sun 12-May-13 19:18:14

I think you need to calm down a bit! When your trying for over two years like me then you will have something to complain about! I know I probably seem insensitive but I think coming on and complaining after one month when people on here have been trying for years in slightly insensitive!

Liquoriceallsort Sun 12-May-13 19:35:56

I agree, if 80% of 'healthy' couples conceive within a year you could potentially put yourself through this another 10 times which isn't healthy! Try to enjoy ttc and don't put so much pressure on yourself.

johnandkymberley Sun 12-May-13 19:46:28

And I didn't realise I could have pains if I'm pregnant?!?

I know this sounds tmi but I have been keeping an eye out for AF but I am totally dry 'down there!'

I have some back ache too??

I never have painful periods really, maybe a couple of times but not usually??? Xxx

johnandkymberley Sun 12-May-13 19:48:05

I don't mean to be insensitive and if I have sounded it I don't mean to. I (and loads of other people) have hang ups and this is one of mine. I do put pressure on myself but u can't help it :s

Just one of those things I suppose but I'm a control freak!

And hubby and I we have wanted a baby for 7 years - when I was 17!! But have only started trying basically because we knew we were too young etc so this is really wanted. It's always the case though the more you want it.....

EuroShaggleton Sun 12-May-13 19:54:03

Well you can't control this, so you need to get into a more relaxed mindset. You don't even know the outcome yet of your very first month ttc and you have got yourself into a state!

If "the more you want it...." was in anyway true, I would have a litter by now rather than 2 and a half miserable years behind me with one IVF miscarriage to show for my efforts.

johnandkymberley Sun 12-May-13 20:06:58

Okay I need to relax then!!! I meant the more you want it the longer it takes xxx

OrangeLily Sun 12-May-13 21:25:12

OP have you had a look at net mums? Might be able to get some good advice there. Most folks here have been on the TTC bandwagon for too long to understand where you are coming from.
