    Well Maplefern, it looks like you, RoRo and I are all at the same point. I just had my progesterone test two days ago (waiting on results) and hubby now has his referral for the swimmer test and will go in a week or so. It's hard to have to get to this isn't it? I had a little sulk last night because I'd so hoped that we'd be the lucky ones who would fluke an easy conception. But, on the positive, in reality, even younger couples take a year to conceive a lot of the time so let's hope we are all worried about nothing and it's just normal timing. It doesn't hurt to check. Good luck with your testing.

    Today I've woken up with real dizziness and off balance. I can't shake it. It's probably just sugar or something but it's funny how nowadays even feeling rubbish is a good thing coz I'm so pathetic that I'm hoping it's a hopeful sign

    This process is sending me

    Yes hopefully we are not worried about anything and it is a timing thing... Was just saying to hubby the other day, maybe we should of started trying on our honeymoon in August/September last year. I was a bit worried that we'd get pregnant too fast and wouldn't been able to enjoy our holiday...

    Good luck for you and your hubby's tests have to wait a couple of weeks to do mine as I'm on CD2. Know what you mean about the symptoms, after being off the pill I'm having different symptoms before AF so think oh is that a sign?!

    I have a question for you. Does anyone else worry about having only one child? I know we haven't even conceived yet but that's partly why I'm getting worried. If it takes more time we probably won't have much time for a second bub in the future. I really really really wouldn't like to have only one child, for his/her sake. While I'd still love to be a parent, I worry that he/she would miss out on siblings. I am really close to my brother and can't imagine how I'd have gone in this world without him, so I worry about my child not having that. Hubby isn't as fussed but I feel selfish for wanting one for me, even if it's not as nice for them. It doesn't sit well with me and as time goes on it worries me more.

    Is this just another crazy thought or does someone else feel the same?

    Hello. I've been reading this thread for a few days as I'm turning 35 in a few months, (DH is 30) and Im on month 3 of TTC. I always thought you instantl got pregnant once ou came off the pill.....thats what they taught us at school isnt it?

    I never wanted kiddies until 6 months ago, and then BANG I want one and I want one now! I had NO idea how much went in to getting pregnant, and I relat to all the emotions you have posted on here.

    I thought I was crazy thinking about it all the time. I google too much too. Ive convinced myself I have so many things worng with me.

    We are trying EXTREME sperm to egg this month. DTD every second day.
    I have no idea when I O. My cycles fluctuate by a few days each month. Im starting to chart this cycle too with temps.

    What makes me really down is just as we decided to start TTC, two of my 'younger' friends announced they are pregnant. It hurts when someone gets what ou reall desire but have no control over.

    On a positive note, I'm glad to have some like minded girl friends here online to talk to and share things with.

    NAT256 - Im with you on this. I only ever wanted 1 (and i will feel lucky to have 1) but I often think, if we have one, we will try straight away for another. Youre not crazy, and youre not alone on this one

    I am worried about only having one child as desperately want 2, would like my first to have a little brother or sister. But if it takes too long again we might have to have only 1 as time isn't on our side.... Twins would be good then wouldn't have to worry about ttc again lol!

    NAT256, maplefern, oompaloompa, I'm in exactly the same boat. I would dearly love two kids (and DH wants three) so that they can have the same close relationships I had with my brother and DH had with his two siblings. A few of my friends have only children, and I see the way those kids are growing up and I don't want that for my own children. Twins would be awesome!

    That said, if it's a choice between just one kid and none at all, I'll choose one - and I agree, NAT256, that makes me feel pretty selfish.

    DH's test results came back today (less than 24 hours after he dropped off the sample!!) and they're mostly good, but with a little higher viscosity than is apparently normal. So there's another avenue to research. My doc wants a second sample but I'm thinking of asking DH to put it off for a bit, as I'm CD10 today and I don't want any swimmers going to waste

    I'm with you ladies, I would also like more than one. I couldn't imagine life without my brother and my DP is an only child and hated it. He would have loved a sibling and said he wouldn't want to stop at one. He's not selfish and he wasn't spoilt, he just would have liked a sibling for company. I'm also hoping for twins.

    RoRo, sounds promising about your hubby's swimmers but best to not waste any swimmers till after you O

    Feel a lot better that I'm not the only one thinking about the only child thing. I don't think statistically there are enough twins to go round!!! But maybe at least one of us will be lucky
    I've had a good think about it though and I figure if I asked any only children, even if it isn't ideal, none of them would wish they'd never been born. So I suppose I have to look at it that way. Still better to have that life.
    I know we'll also foster children, regardless of if we have our own, as it's something I've always known I'd do and feel strongly about (from some of my own life experiences), so that is also another opportunity for an only child to know life with other kids.

    RoRo, great that you have some results and that they're pretty good. My hubby has a referral but is away with work this week so will have to go the week after, but like you this is close to our fertile time again so might wait another week. Who'd have thought bubs took so much planning....

    Yes Roro that does sound promising, that was fast testing too! My hubby is going to organise to get his swimmers tested on Friday but it is getting close to our fertile time too (between Monday and Wednesday next week), might still get it done though. He started taking Menevit at the start of Jan so hopefully that has made a difference as well.
