    Hello Ladies!! OMG Im so glad I've found this thread

    Im a newbie on here so forgive me if Im a tad rusty; your my very first forum!!

    Hubby and I started trying for the first time this month. After spending the entire year preparing myself (health, fitness, vitamins etc etc) with September outlined as the ideal month, I've certainly been slightly obsessed with monitering my body's every moment so to speak! Its been exhausting actually and I never thought I would be this driven to conceive!! Everyone around me got pregnant first go or without really trying, so I was sure we would too especially if I put in the dedicated effort!! But this morning at 13dpo we got our first BFN. Hubby was cool about it optimistically saying 'hey it was our first go. We'll try agin next month' which is exactly true, but I think he now realises how much I want this after I sat and had a little cry about it I feel so silly for being upset but I just feel like I've failed at the most important project I've ever put effort into lol!!! (Can you tell Im a perfectionist workaholic!) Im 36.5yrs of age (hubby is two weeks older than me) and Im really feeling that biological clock ticking away...
    AF is due this Wednesday or Thursday, so I guess I really need to wait to see what my body tells me rather than a HPT. So far my body has been making me think that I might be pregnant, although it could also be psychosomatic because I want to be so much!
    Anyways, its nice to not feel so alone and to know there are other quite sane women out there just like me wanting so much to have a little person

    Lots of hugs and happy wishes to all of you lovely ladies - thank you for sharing your stories! xxx

    Welcome trailrunner, it can be very frustrating when ppl are telling u they fell first go etc but the unfortunate truth is that most women take at least a few months (even though it feels like that isn't the case for just about everyone you know). Try not to feel like ur body has failed you, even though its hard, just keep at it and feel free to vent and ask us all questions as this is why we are all here TTC can b tough but I am told once ur UTD and then hold that little bundle of joy in ur arms, all the effort is worth it. Baby dust to u and hp AF stays away

    Default Next month

    So in about 2 weeks ill be ready to try again. I bought a pack of OPKs what's the go with them? When do I start testing? Straight after AF? And when do I start DTD? When I see the line getting darker? I'm confused

    Hi guys, welcome trailrunner, hope everyone is having good weeks. Back to work for me today boo. Yesterday I caught up with some friends that I went to high school with it was lovely but they kept asking when are you going to have another baby, the dreaded question my answervis always the same were working on it, they all have 4 kids each and knew when they were ovulating, came home rather frustrated.
    My dd is at my mums for a few days then off to her dads for weekend so its just me an hubby which is kinda nice for a change.
    Congrats channy on the gym membership that's great.
    Currently on cd16 so I'm guessing I've ovulated and am now just waiting let hope we caught it this month. Been dtd every second day hubby is keen as this month for bubs to happen, which is really sweet.
    Enjoy the rest of the week girls

    Mrs jinks gd luck with ur appt today!

    Curious- they say to start opk on cd12 and keep testing until u get a line as dark as the control line. I don't have much luck with them and working out the strength if the line drives me bonkers but gd luck!!! They say to do it around 10:30am and at 2pm but I usually get nothing at all in the afternoon, let us know how u go

    Where are you all buying your OPK's from?
    I think if I get AF before weekend or do a test on weekend and get a negative I might buy some to seriously start trying as I have no idea of when I ovulate.
