i cannot believe that i am still in the midst of ttc for the first month, for some reason 21st feb (last af/cd1) seems an eternity ago, i have been a rollercoaster of emotions this whole month and the thought that there could be many more to come before we conceive is quite daunting. I know i should not give up on this month just yet as af/bfp is not due until monday, but just not convinced this is the month for us, i guess we'll just have to keep trying and see what happens, I am a bit worried that it will consume our lives and we'll end up living by cycle days and ovulation timetables well thats my rant over for tonight - good luck all you girlies out there ttc!![color=#8040BF][/color]
Hiya, it really does start to take over your life hey and you really cant think about anything else... The whole irony is though that as soon as you forget about it and start to relax it actually happens! You need to lower the stress and just enjoy (!) the trying - We have now been trying for #2 for 10 months so I know exactly how you feel x
Well last month was a BFN for me, af came right on time, so fingers crossed that this is my month! I am feeling much more relaxed this month and taking things easy - been a little ill so that has kept my mind off things!
I can imagine how u are feeling. Please dont give up.
I had very irregular Periods and was diagnosed with PCOS. My doctor said that i would probably not be able to conceive naturally. This scared me. I desperately wanted a child of my own. Plus I didn't want to let any one down, and I felt really guilty for some reason.
I would immediatrly buy atleast one pregnancy tester every time I had tender breasts, cramps, mood swings etc. Unfortunately, it would read the same thing every time. I used to cry with disappointment.
Me and my OH were actively trying. In September 2009 I began to drink more herbal teas. I began to focus on something new. I was a little more relaxed. And in December 2009 I discovered I was pregnant!
The tears have made me stronger! It was perfect timing! I have a daughter who is 10 months.
I hope you too have some good news soon
Don't stress too much. Don't neglect yourself, Look after yourself. Every individual is different. We tend to naturally compare ourselves with others occasionally. But, try to remain positive.
I know exactly how you feel! Last month was my first month TTC, and it was a huge wake up call. It's all I could think about. I kept analyzing everything and wondering, wondering, wondering. The thought that this could go on for months is quite daunting.
