TTC buddies needed DESPERATELY(1000 Posts)
I desperately need some TTC buddies. We've just started trying for no.3 and we haven't told anyone. I'm bursting but with no one to talk to. I realise this makes me sound like a total sap
Oh hi TTC buddy 👋
I’m with you- trying for no1- 3 months in 🤞
Hi 👋🏼 I'm about 2 months in. Hoping it happens soon I'm the most impatient person ever. Think I'm driving my DH mad x
Yep been there with my hubby!
It’s such an exciting but emotional process isn’t it x
Been TTC no2 since August, no luck as yet. My cycle has also gone totally crazy, currently on day 68! Went to GP last week as all preg tests have been negative, he discussed possibly a hormone issue or simply not ovulating. Now referred for blood tests. I've barely told anyone what is going on🙊 and dying to talk about it with like minded people
My cycles were a mess and have finally got them to 28 days over the last 3 months since taking pre pregnancy vitamins. I started on the seven seas trying for a baby and have just started pregnacare this month. Did you fall quite quickly with DC1. I have a 12 year old who was a welcomed surprise and my 5 year old we was really lucky to conceive almost straight away. I've never really done all this OPK and symptom spotting. I feel like I'm going mental and there's no one I can talk to because we don't want the added pressure of everyone asking if it's happened yet if they know we're trying
I'm hoping mine settle soon. Our first pregnancy was a total surprise but unfortunately ended in a mmc. I let my body recover for a while after that and then fell pregnant with DD after 6 months of actively trying. She is now almost 3 and I constantly get asked when we're having another. I just can't bring myself to openly talk about it and tend to play down that we're TTC. It's totally thrown me this time round, my cycles were always so regular up until a few months ago. I'm waiting to get all my bloodwork done before attempting OPK etc but I have to wait for my next cycle before they can test for ovulation. It's great we can come on here and talk so openly.
You're not a sap at all! Me and my partner are trying for first and I just want to tell everyone I meet 😂. It's only been three months and I feel so impatient. I don't know how most women keep it a secret for three months when they actually get pregnant too!!
I can be your TTC buddy. We are also trying to conceive no 3 We have a 5 ds and 7 dd. Both of them conceived first cycle. We have been trying on and off the last few months. But we only manage to dtd once a cycle when we try Dh has a low libido due to some pills taken for hair loss years ago. Im nervous we left it too late.
Also, just started temping, and no obvious rise to show I have ovulated! Are you beginning the 2ww?
Heyyy can i join too? Been TTC since about august for our second having a long cycle at about 36 days but might try taking vitimans like you have said!
How do they make your cycle shorter?
Yay lots of TTC buddies. I normally tell my mum everything and I'm so struggling to not tell her this. AF is due any day now and I can't wait for it to come and bugger off. I'm due to go abroad in June too and if I'm not pregnant by then I'll be due on while we're away which will suck massively!
@StarlightIntheNight I struggle to temp because I work night shifts three nights a week. I use OPKs but if I'm honest I struggle to read them sometimes. I'm waiting on some clear blue digitalis to come through any day now so hopefully they'll help
@Olivebrach I'm not sure how they work I've never had regular cycles really and since taking them for the last three months I've been 28days every month. Ive just started taking pregnacare this month because I couldn't find the seven seas ones. Hopefully it won't make a difference
Hi ladies, can I join?
We're ttc no.1. I'm on cd2 of cycle 2. Not going to lie, was absolutely gutted when AF showed up yesterday. I know it would be quite lucky to conceive first time round but it crushed me. Onwards and upwards into cycle 2. Been off bc since August but cycles have been long. Last one was 44 days which is the shortest so far. Going to try and see a doctor to see if I can do anything to shorten them. @MrsB899 what vitamins are you taking? I've started on evening primrose and omega 3 6 9 to see if that helps. Going to start opks this month too. X
We are TTC baby no.1. First cycle of trying - AF due on Thursday.
I've got cramps in my stomach and thighs today, which feels like period pains but of course I'm driving myself crazy thinking it could be implantation. I'm also sooooooo thirsty and fatigued but i'm aware this could be wishful thinking.
If period doesn't show by Sunday we will test as this will be 4 weeks since the first day of my last period. (usually have short 25 day cycles).
Feels nice to read of other people TTC at the same time! Baby dust to all x
@hopeandpray1988 of course. The more the merrier. I'm taking the seven seas trying for a baby for the last three months and since taking them my cycles have gone from anything between 30-40 days to 28 every month for the last 3. This month I've changed to pregnacare conception to up my game 😆 my husband is taking true men's ones too. Fingers crossed x
@Lumulf19 fingers crossed for you. I drive myself mad symptom spotting. AF is due Friday here. I have achy boobs but nothing else which I always get. I think I'm out this month any way. Wish my OPKs would hurry up 😆
Hey can I join?
I'm TTC #1, came off the pill in January. AF arrived yesterday for me too 😭
@Robbo93 of course more the merrier. I can't wait for my AF to arrive this month and bugger off 😆
@MrsB899 thanks, fingers crossed for you too! I feel the same as you though, if AF is coming id rather it hurried up so we can start cycle 2! Very early days for us and it’s all so exciting, trying to just let it be and relax (yeah right!) x
MrsB899, I could never read the ovulation strips, so got clear blue digital a while back and it makes it so much easier. This month, we ran out as we were approaching the ovulation time...but I think we managed to dtd on ovulation day....however, waiting to see about temps rising etc.
@Lumulf19 no part of me will relax and just go with the flow I'm so excited it's unreal and we've only just started trying really. @StarlightIntheNight ah that's good to know hopefully my digital OPKs will be here soon I really struggle with the cheapies
Hi can I please join in? Ttc number 1, currently 6dpo...these tww's are torturous 😬 on cycle number 4 of trying x
@dizzy85 welcome lovey. Fingers crossed for you! I agree the TWW drives me insane
