Good luck @AJsyd !
Hehe yes, it is good not having a nice supply of tests in the cupboard. I'm way too lazy to walk up to the chemist at lunchtime too. I like to think of it as my laziness helping me
The last two days have been filled with the usual anxiety I get a few days before AF, so I'm trying not to pour my heart out to DH about all the things that are worrying me, because I know I'll probably get over it in a few days! lol. It's always difficult because there's really only one person in my family that I can tell all my fears to who won't say "oh don't worry, it'll be fine" and dismiss them, and she also wont look at me like there's something wrong with me and I need help. haha. Poor DH will listen so well, but sometimes I can see the look on his face that says "oh no, I don't know what I'm supposed to say! I'm going to get it wrong I can tell!".
For example, when I was with this person the other day (she is pregnant with her first now). We both looked at each other and said "What if we're just not good at it? What if we're hopeless Mums and we hate it?" and we could sit there understanding how each other felt without trying to fix it or make each other feel bad for thinking it.
Woooosssahhhh I'll just try and keep my feelings under my hat for a few more days!

HD - you can always tell all those fears to us. We're a little bit all in it together.
As for me...
1st cycle - 35 days
2nd cycle - 37 days
3rd cycle - currently on day 38 & hoping AF will hurry up?
You guys are a bit more knowledgeable than me on this... we totally missed (what I thought was) the right time. Didn't DTD under CD26 or 27. As far as I know that would make it pretty impossible for this month right?

Hi all, is it too late to add myself to this thread?
I've only just joined the site but I'm well into my 30's and TTC # 1. Starting to wonder if it'll happen for us before it's too late. 😪
Been off the pill for over a year, did the whole charting of my cycle for ages. Now just keep trying at the right time-ish. Starts to get frustrating every time AF comes or when I feel a bit sick or different somehow but then AF just comes round again!!
Started having a few tests just to make sure everything is in working order, hubby's next to get tested, although I think he's trying to avoid it, lol.
Just good to find others in a similar boat to me to bounce off.

AJsyd that means a lot to me - I tend to be a worry wart lol! I told DH last night that I was freaking out a bit and it all came tumbling out - how I think he's just WAY too calm about the prospect of having a baby, and that I think he thinks it's all going to be fun and games and I'll continue being the perfect wife, with all the time to do all the stuff I do now while looking after a baby and he has the picture of this perfect little happy family in his mind and when it doesn't turn out like that he's going to freak out. He smiled and said "I don't think any of that". LOL. So we talked and it turns out he has all the same fears as me, but is excited as well as scared (like me) but didn't want to say that incase I freaked out (who me? ) and thought he had got cold feet on having a baby. He then said he thinks we should just keep talking about our fears as they come up so we can put out any relationship spot fires along the way Did I mention I love this man? Thank goodness one of us is sane.
I forget AJ, are you temping or using OPK's or anything at the moment? Do you know when you definitely did O? I had a really long cycle a few cycles ago and I actually figured out later I O'd on day 30 something. And it depends how many days you usually have between O and AF (mines exactly 14, but yours might be different). So, you might even find that you're having a bit longer cycle (say 41 or 42 days) and if so, then you might have caught it in time. Because my cycles were a bit all over the place, I found temping and OPK's to be the only way I can really tell if I definitely O'd and when. (I have other signs too, but I find some are more prominent than others in different months, so it's a bit hard to just go on that).
Welcome @Lizard ! I think it's a pretty common theme for hubbys to procrastinate their tests haha. Mine hasn't gone through any of that yet (I think he's crossing his fingers big time I get pregnant quickly and he doesn't have to )

Thanks for the welcome guys.
I've been trying to read up on some of this tread (there's a lot) it's really good and reassuring to see that for some their journey is moving on to the next phase (congrates!!) and it's great to see all support you're giving each other when things aren't working out as we'd all like them to.
It's just really nice guys keep it up!

@HillDweller - awww... How sweet of your DH!!! And he's right - got to talk so you don't assume what the other is thinking and create mayhem out of nothing. He's definitely a keeper!
How are you going? AF hasn't shown up as yet, right? No spotting?
@AJsyd - what HD said. Are you tracking O by any method?
@Lizard - welcome!!! I've added you to the front page. Are you willing to share any other details about yourself for me to add in (Age, State/City)? All fine if not.
Have you been TTC for the entire year of being off the pill, or only started recently? Good luck with the testing as well!
Men are silly. All they have to do initially is get happy into a cup. We have to be pricked and probed several times!!!
My poor vein gets very excited in the TWW and when AF turns up. It finally gets to have a week break between tests! *laughs*
