So today is CD 1 so off we go again.

This is month 8 of TTC nunber 1 and I'm starting to get really disheartened by it all and really starting to worry somthing is wrong which I know is not helpful at all.

Any tips for keeping relaxed about it all and good news stories welcomed ... ... I need them today 😭 x

I feel the exact same way! I’m CD1 and feel really fed up, this month will mark 6 months and I’ve come to the realisation we’re in this for the long run which sucks. We even tried pre-seed this last cycle…

Hope you feel better soon x

Aw it's good to know I'm not alone.

We tried concieve plus this month.
Obviously no change 😂🙈

Now off I go to buy wine and more ovulation kits 😭🙈

Cycle day 1 for me too! 😞 it really is a horrible feeling and never seems to get any easier!
Heres to wine! 🍷

Here's to wine indeed.

On a brighter note... We may all end the year with a BFP... 🤞🤞🤞

I really hope so! All I see is babies which is lovely but at the same time an even bigger reminder of what I’m missing out on every.single.month I get that one line.

Hi girls, please may I join?
So sorry you’re both struggling at the moment and I’m sending positive vibes your way for a Christmas bfp!! I’m cd1 today buts actually our first cycle ttc so I’m a bit of a rookie but would love to have people to chat to about it all! I did actually track using opks last month out of curiosity and seems I have a short luteal phase - hoping it’s a one off and trying not to stress before we’ve even started trying

Hi all

Cd 1 here too! It's so disheartening. Tbh I find it unhelpful when people tell me to relax and have fun. It's not like I'm not living my normal life, or like I'm sitting in a dark room 24/7 staring at opks and hugging pregnancy tests!

Hope you are all feeling ok. At least it is cycle day three today, three days closer to another fertile week!

Hello ladies. How we all doing?

I'm on CD 5 now and will soon be starting to DTD hopefully every other day until aorund CD 14.

My partner and I actually have quite a low sex drive (sorry TMI when not TTC we have sex about once or twice a week) but really going to go for it this month and open the window early.xx

Hi @Arly90, I’m CD4 now so not far behind you! We will be doing the same although I ovulate fairly late so will be BD’ing quite late into my cycle. We also usually only have sex around 1/2x a week but will be going for it this month! Excited for AF to leave and get cracking. Fingers crossed for lots of December positives x

I think I might go a month not doing ovulation tests. Make me so obsessed 🙈 might just go with how I'm feeling and relax a bit more this month.
I also have my Covid booster on the 14th so the week after ovulation so hoping that doesn't mess with my cycle 🙈 x
