Hi girls! Yes I am new too. I am 26, husband is 28 and we have been trying since June 2010. I guess I just needed to find people to talk to who are going through the same things I am each month, wondering and waiting and trying. Everyone in my husbands family and my family have kids, and all our friends have kids so sometimes it can be quite difficult for me to talk to any of them. Plus I do tend to get tired of the question...when are you having kids? or the are you pregnant yet?

It's great to have you here! I am sure you will find this board so helpful. It is so nice to be able to chat with ladies that are going through the same things. Hopefully you won't be here too long. :)

Thanks girls! I used to answer those questions with a smile and a little giggle but now it's getting harder. We haven't been trying for very long yet, I was on bc for the last 7 years and quit last spring so we could conceive. My cycles were always 28 days because of that, last month was 30 and this month was 32 days...not quite sure what's up with that? Does that have to do with the fact I was on bc for so long?

It's really hard to say what your cycle is doing. My cycles are all over the map and I haven't been on the pill for any extended time for at least 12 years. Some women just have cycles that vary, I don't think it is a real concern if it is only 5 days or so.

Have you started to temp? I think that would be a good first step you can do it for free at www.fertilityfriend.com they also have advanced options if you want to pay, which I never did. Have you thought about going to your doctor just to get preliminary tests done? It shouldn't be difficult to get a DR to send you for blood work and a semen analysis (SA) for your partner. There are other tests an HSG, which may be harder to get a DR to send you for at this stage, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I know when I was at 8 months of TTC I was frustrated and wanted answers but I thought it was too early to ask for tests, I really regret that now. I am a lot older than you (34) and when talking fertility ages we are worlds apart, but I think it is best to be as proactive as feels right to you for where you're at.
