    No problem! Your username also has 83 at the end. Are you an 83 baby? I am. Is this your first time TTC?

    Yep! Got off the pill December after being on it since I was 18! I'm going to try Maca Powder from tomorrow onwards. Been googling my brains out! It seems to regulate your hormones so I'm going to try that for the next few cycles.. In the mean time I've booked in to see a fertility specialist just to get some tests done so I'm not wasting my time TTC naturally if there is an underlying problem. God willing there isn't!

    Oh yes I used maca powder about a year ago to help with my anxiety before we decided to TTC, I then found isagenix and their ionix supreme which has adaptogens which really helped with the anxiety so much, but I've since read that it's not safe to take this while TTC or pregnant, plus I've found while taking the elevit I couldn't take the isagenix as combined there was too much iron and it affected my bowel. I think I will go back to maca powder too, great idea!

    How old is your partner / husband? Mine is 39. I think after 6 months if we don't get anywhere we will seek fertility advice. I've been told to wait a year but like you I would like to know sooner rather than later! I don't think we have the time to wait 12 months at this age. Please let me know how you go

    So I don't want to be too excited but I'm now on day 19, a week since ovulation and I'm feeling really nauseous. It started last night while asleep and I wasn't sure if it was something I ate but I still have it today. I did some googling and found that it can be about this time of the cycle that one can start feeling symptoms. I'm also super tired. I find it hard to believe we would be "lucky" enough to conceive first try, but I'm sure I haven't felt sick like this before. Wondering about the placebo effect though... Am I creating this feeling for want of it.... Have any of you experienced this too?

    My partner doesn't want us doing pregnancy tests until I've missed my period as he thinks it will create too much ups and downs. What's your thoughts?

    I always did pregnancy tests early but didn't tell my husband unless it was positive Don't listen to me though I'm a bad influence haha. Good luck though, fingers crossed for you

    @Rocky27 what did you do when it said positive though? Did you pretend you didn't know? I'm a terrible liar so I'd get busted lol
