    The placenta isn't formed until 6-8 weeks so I wouldn't worry too much, and you'll know fo sho by then!

    @Polly6034 Welcome! I know the feeling, I fell last year by complete accident (whilst on the depo shot). Because of that I very naively assumed that as soon as we removed my IUD I would be utd. Not so much the case :P
    Very sorry to hear about your mc, I know first hand how tough that is.
    Are you testing this month?

    i'm not allowed to mention ttc in relation to sex. We occasionally have the convos around what and how often will we try, but then I'm not allowed to tell him when I O, or specifically tell him we need to dtd today etc. All he knows is when my period starts and finishes and we just wing it the rest of the time. However, not specifically making it ttc sex has actually made us more sexually active and it's been fun. Last time we TTC it became a chore and there was no love in it anymore - often starting arguments.

    FWIW i fell pregnant with DD in a month with only one instance of dtd, as we had basically given up and were waiting to start IVF. That month, we didn't do any of the things we had tried to help us conceive, and conceived anyway. So have faith maybe you need to take it back a notch and just 'have sex for the sake of sex' - make him feel attractive, get him to do the same for you, thinking of what you can do to turn the other on. I find we're more in the mood when we've been playful and teasing all day than if we just go to bed and go 'ok let's dtd, it's the right time' etc. Try to pinch his bum as much as possible, and wear sexy underwear good luck haha

    also @letithappen, you're lucky you get more than 2 weeks of dtd - my AF often goes for anywhere between 7-10 days and that's not counting the 2 days of spotting beforehand. So i basically only get 2 weeks or just over...

    alcohol while TTC can make a woman ovulate early. not sure if it affects the development of the egg, but I think the biggest issue is probably dehydration during O time - did you know drinking plenty of water can drastically increase your cm, making it naturally more fertile? Alcohol of course dehydrates and can affect your cm negatively.

    As for drinking in the TWW, you are pretty safe. Once that egg has already been released, alcohol shouldn't affect anyrthing else. It is no danger to a developing foetus until the placenta is formed - about 7 weeks along.

    welcome I'm 31 too, and my DD is turning 3 in a few weeks. My TTC journey with her was a difficult one, and I had a MC at 8 weeks just a few months ago. Good luck and hope you have a sticky bubba soon x

    I just think it's one thing to get knowing looks and innuendo when you're actually pregnant, and another when you're just TTC! Didn't want to deal with that crap tonight.

    Hi Polly. I mc in August and this is my first TTC cycle since my d&c. The OB said to skip the first cycle. I hope I fall this month. I hate the anxiety that goes with TTC!

    @Polly6034
    I totally understand where you're coming from not wanting to join a testing thread. It can such a major let down at the end of the month when everyone else is getting their BFP's and you're still here, frustrated as ever, going absolutely crazy.. wondering why isn't it happening to me?
    I'm so sorry to hear about your twins that must have been very difficult for you and your partner
    However rest assured you have come to the right place. Most of the time the pros outweigh the cons in these testing threads and I've found that the support that I get from these lovely ladies is absolutely mind boggling! Even though essentially we are all strangers these ladies reassure me that all these crazy feelings swirling around in my head are valid and felt by lot of other TTC'ers.

    Would you like to be put down to test for a particular date? Good luck for this cycle!
