New to Discussions- TTC 3 Months

Hello! I'm new to the whole discussion board thing. My husband and I have been ttc for 3 months now. With no luck the first 2 months, I am hoping for something to happen this month. I am crazy about the whole baby thing. I have been using the OPK tests for the past 2 cycles. I know it hasn't been that long but I am frustrated with the whole thing already. I just want it to happen and I want it to happen fast. But I know I can't control it and the more frustrated I get the harder it is to make it happen. Everytime I see a calendar I end up counting out my cycle days. Anyone else this crazy about it???

Ohmigoodness Mandy you have come to the right place! Most of us are completely obsessive.

Thank you! Yes this is my first baby. I am a toal type A anyway so this whole thing just makes me even more neurotic. I'm glad I found a place to fit in :)

Good luck to you too!

LOL You are definitely not alone Mandy! We're all crazy here! :P I'm working on #4 too. (Hey, I just mistyped #5 Jean...is that a sign I'm pregnant?) Sometimes it takes a little while. I read just the other day that women TTC their first that they should plan on it taking around a year. Now, obviously, that doesn't happen for everyone, some get it right away, others in a couple of months but the fact remains that even the most perfect timing, you still only have a 25% chance of getting pregnant each cycle. Weird, huh? It's a wonder that anyone gets pregnant with that statistic. But as you can see, I'm just as crazy as you, all I do is research TTC! :D
