Ok this may sound stupid but here goes...

Me and hubby are just starting on the ttc road - me being me started googling things to help (e.g. timing around ovulation, folic acid, etc.) but I've also been reading topics about how long it takes and have heard how for lots of couples it takes a long time! This has now made me worry that this is going to be me! Any tips on how to just relax and be more positive that it will happen?

I'm 27 and hubby is 30 and both in good health - don't smoke etc.

@H8624 - not sure I can help exactly, however some thoughts.

1) You're both healthy
2) Plenty of years in you 😉
3) Why would it be you? No point worrying. Unfortunately a lot of people don't have an easy road but that doesn't mean everyone does.

For reference, I was 28 / hubby 29 when I had my first, took 3 months. I was 31 / hubby 32 when I had my second, took 2 months. Obviously I am so grateful and feel very lucky, however I just wanted to point out that there's every chance you could be as lucky.

Good luck x

Age is with you, health is with you, try not to stress too much! Hubby and I started TTC in Nov I was a worrier just like you and it didn't happen and it kept worrying me even more. Then 6 months later when we least expected it, it happened! No ovulation kit, i didn't even know i was ovulating or fertile, we just had a bit of fun and bang! I'm 16 weeks pregnant now! I'm 30 and DH is 32, both average weight and average health. Try to keep a positive mind set and have fun!

Definitely not stupid but please try not to start your journey panicking because you’ll drive yourself insane. As I’m sure you’ve read, it’s totally normal to take up to 12 months to conceive when you are in the fittest health. Just dtd every other day in the middle two weeks of your cycle and enjoy yourself. I’ve been ttc for 14 months with a mmc in between and I’m now having therapy for stress as I totally lost my head with everything. It’s not pleasant and I wish I’d listened to other people at the start of my journey who said just enjoy the first 6 months and not to focus on it too much.
