I just came across this thread so I thought I would join in, hope that's ok! I am 27 and DH 28 we have been together 5 years and have just had our 1 year wedding anniversary. We have known each other since we were 5 years old so it's a bit of a childhood sweetheart thing as he was my first crush when I was 7!!
I went off BC in July and AF didn't show up until October... it was a long wait that is for sure! We started trying as soon as AF showed up sticking to the every 2nd day rule of thumb... I feel too overwhelmed by charting my temp, OPK's etc etc I used "Maybe Baby" while I was waiting for AF and I got carried away/excited for no reason so I decided to pop it in the draw and leave it there after seeing my GP and she just said do it 2-3 times a week and see what happens... so blazae about it but I think that it what I needed as it was starting to stress me out. I work as a nanny so I am surrounded by babies and pregnant women... never used to bother be but now I don't like seeing pregnant women.. seriously evny going on! I know we haven't been trying for long at all but it's still getting to me.
Isn't amazing how once our minds are made up it's like no other thought can enter our head... I can't stop thinking about it. I wish I was just one of those women who did it once and got pregnant... it's going to be a long emotional journey but can't wait until I can hold my baby in my arms... makes me get chills thinking about it. We have a beautiful golden retriever who just turned 1 and she has been a great place to channel my love but I am ready for more now.
5 days ago I started spotting and I still am... I don't quite know what to make of it as AF left town 2.5 wks ago so I think my body is just out of wack and trying to sort it's self out. I don't know whether to think of this spotting as AF as I didn't get cramps or heavy flow but it's been going for 5 days now so I am confused!!
ahh.... sorry for the long long story and if TMI but it's s nice to be able to perge as no one except DH (obviously!) knows we are trying.
Thanks for reading/listening! And babydust to you all... ChannyV thank you for starting this thread for us 27 yr olds!!
