Hello lovely ladies
thought Id pop in and say hi have been working more than usual lately keeping me busy and out of trouble. No news for me still plodding along ttc #2 my cycles are still a bit wishy washy after 9 months of being off the pill. Bought some opk's but dp says he feels pressured to dtd when I am testing, so trying not to use them this month. Its soooooo hard
Anyway hope everyone is well. Will try and catch up with everyones news in the next few days.
Have a fantastic weekend

shez: hows ur pg going?? ive missed something along the way what was up with needing an amnio? hope everythings okay
Hi everyone. Im new to this forum and was after some help or advice. Im 26 and my husband is 27. We have been TTC for 9 months (12 months unprotected) We have had our first appointment with a fertility specialist and have just finished my first round of ovulation tracking blood tests. The tests went well, I ovulated properly etc. My husband has had his tests and evrything is fine. His 'swimmers' are good, just average swimming. I still have to go for a few more routine tests next week before we go back for our second appointment.
My problem is that I have been getting quite angry when i find out that people i went to school with are having children with such ease. its all so frustrating. It just seems that pregnant women and babies are EVERYWHERE! I hate it when people tell me to just relax because its hard enough to relax when its something that is this important. I feel like im letting my husband down and that im a failure. My DH is wonderful and very supportive and stays positive most of the time. I just dont know how to deal with negative results month after month.
I'm going well. Yeah my NT results said a higher risk of Downs syndrome so i needed to know and that ment having an amnio to find out. We are still waiting for the results til my ob appointment next wednesday, i'm sure the results will be fine. Got my morph scan next tuesday. I'm 18 weeks today.

I know exactly how you feel - im 29, dh 32. Unfortunatly we had a miscarriage in June this year at 5 weeks and since then every couple we know are pregnant with their first baby. Its hard to be happy for them when they dont even know the heartbreak we have suffered. I keep an open mind about it and just think that obviously something wasnt meant to be and that its better it happended earlier than later. Your test results have come back good and i can reccomend a book called bump and grind that can put your mind at ease and give you a good giggle as well!. We are both lucky to have DH who are both supportive and i think we need to keep positive in order to give them the bub they so deserve one day!. I believe in good things coming to those who wait! Good luck
Thanks Jacks, I will have a look at that book
Ryderash - Its getting so close now!!! Glad to hear all is going well
Jacks - any surge yet??
Emma - and welcome! I have been in your shoes and it is so tough. Its true how when you want a baby everyone else just seems to be pregnant or with a newborn. I got to a stage where I would get so cranky and even upset at all the pregnancy announcement in my group of friends and I just felt so left behind. Jacks recommended the book "bump and grind" to me and I loved it! Definately worth a read. Its good news that your tests are coming back clear so I hope its not too much longer for you to get your BFP. We are all here for each other and most of us if not all of us have been through the same situation.
AFM - Testing on Friday So I better get some HPT as there is none in the house LOL
Fingers crossed for those 2 lines, Cherished!
I am in the TWW now. Positive OPKs on the 18th and 19th, BD on 14th 15th and 16th, then 18th 19th and again tonight. Then Zanzi-man can have a rest! CD 14 of what I expect to be a 27 day cycle, but my tracker reckons ive got a 29 day cycle, due to last months 35 day cycle. I'll be testing on the 6th, which by my calculations will make me 2 days late. If AF shows on schedule, I'll be able to squeeze in another October test.
Hi Cherished. Thanks for writing. I know what you mean by feeling left behind. My life has been on hold for 4.5 years while i have been at uni. Now that its coming to an end im ready to move on. I expected not to get pregnant striaght away, but I thought after 6 months it would happen. Ive watched person after person that i went to school with or friends with get pregnant and have children. On top of that I had a friend who stopped talking to me after she had her daughter last year. She didnt even want me to meet her. It makes me feel that im not good enough because I dont have children. I just wish i had a crystal ball to tell me when its suppose to happen so i dont have to keep waiting and testing every month.
It definatley helps knowing there are other people out there who know what im talking about. its quite comforting
