@brookeallisa the worrying is totally natural & normal. When my son was born I thought I would never get over the fear that something bad might ever happen to him. But you learn to live with it. 😉 You'll be a great mum, I'm sure.
@Mahalia27 of course it's fine to ask! That what BH is here for! We fell really easily with DS, only 3 months of trying. Which is the reason we went to our GP just to see what she'd say. That & the fact that I'm 32 & DH is 37 so we're not spring chickens. I was totally preparing myself for her to say, come back in another 4/5months but fortunately she was really understanding & tested us & that's how we found out about DH low sperm count & got our referral. 😊
How long did it take you with number 1? Have you seen a Dr yet this time around?
I have't tested!
The last 4 cycles have been 43,42,49 &60 days! So I might hold out for a little longer but I'm not sure if the anxiety of not knowing is better or the disappointment of a negative! 😆
I went to buy a digital test today but the shop was out.
My 30th tomorrow, maybe I'll test for luck! 😆
Or maybe that's stupid hahahaha
Oh my lord those are long cycles! 😵
You must have the patience of a Saint! I'm torn with the same testing decision each month too! I'd say don't test tomorrow because if it is a BFN that will totally ruin your birthday. Do it the day after then if it's a BFP it'll be just like getting a present a day late. Which is still just as good! 👍
Wee AF arrived today bring on Oct I guess! At least my cycles are becoming a little shorter... now at 32 days
Thanks for the support ladies. Had a very emotional day. I'll be moving on to October tread but I'll still be stalking you ladies hoping for more bfps
Sorry to hear about AF SamG and silkentofu
McBecks - we fell 1st cycle with DS so thought it would be easy again! Similar story - went to GP after 8ish months expecting him to say come back after a year but he was really supportive about investigating further. I've had an ultrasound to check for fibroids or any blockages and that was all clear, then I had the blood test checking hormones on fri but haven't had results back yet. Hubby also has a little cup for a sperm test but I think he's putting it off as he is a little afraid that it might be his 'fault' we're not getting pregnant 😥 We are 28 both fairly healthy but I guess that doesn't mean anything sometimes!
Ttc my son took us 5 years and finally got him! This time around it's been a year, when I stopped bfing af arrived for the first time when he was about one, he's just had his second birthday 😔
It's the hardest thing in the world but the most rewarding.
All the af arrivals makes me sad, I really think I'll be in October with you ladies! 😥 I'll hold off and test on Tuesday, if I can last that long!
