Hi this is my first post and i've only read a few messages so far. I'm TTC, this is my second cycle, but my period started today so it looks like i'm in for round 3. I'm disappointed, its hard not to get your hopes up. Plus I know in reality you don't get pregnant on the first or second time...unless its unplanned! I'm bummed today. Cramps are bad enough, but now they are a sign of real disappointment, instead of an annoyance. I know that it could take a while since i have endometriosis and a progesterone imbalance, but if in 6 months nothing works, then i will try to work with my doctor. But there is only a 1 in 4 chance of getting pregnant even if you do everything right. Can you tell i'm trying to cheer myself up? lol. At least I learned my lesson this time, because Last month I took about 5 hpt...ridiculous I know, this time i'm not wasting my money until after i miss my period. Its an added disappointment each negative test. On the bright side my dh kisses our "maybe baby" everyday, hopefully next month we wont have to call it maybe, just baby. Good Luck to everyone else, especially with the waiting!

GM Marcella & Welcome!! ((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))) I'm so sorry af showed up and you're feeling disappointed (again)... you're in good company here though and we'll try to keep you from testing this next time until af is a no-show-lol!!! Are you charting your temps, cervical position and mucous? If not it's a great way to help pass the time while ttc and even more helpful in aiding you in seeing when o is about to show so you can really get some good BD in!! I love how your DH kisses your "maybe baby" everyday...that's so AWESOME!!! I hope though that you're just deciding to come try out the ttc board will bring on the BFP even faster and you'll have that "baby" kissin' going on real soon!!!!!!!!!! Welcome, and please don't hesitate to ask us questions and our use our shoulders - that's what we're here for!

LOLove, Connie Hoping your stay here is VERY short & sweet!!

Thanks for the Welcome. I use the Creighton Model of natural family planning, so i only use cervial mucus, not temps etc. I know when I ovulate and its worked well for the past year and a half to prevent pregnancy, but its nice to use it the other way around for ttc. also i have to know when i ovulate so that i can take my progesterone appropriately, 3dpo to 12 dpo. And yes I'm glad i saved my $10 this cycle and didn't test! I was really good with medication etc this cycle even though i was really sick...strep plus walking pneumonia plus killer allergies...every tree in town bloomed at once! i double checked all my med with my obgyn and the pharmacist who is also pregnant and no chest x ray for sure. It was a rough month so i'm not really all that surprised that there was no baby this time. At anyrate...maybe third time is the charm!

Super more ((((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))))))) for you! Whoofta what a rough month- I sure hope you're feeling back to normal now- what a combination of yucko stuff happening to you! I've heard about that method...I need to go learn more about. Sounds like it's working great for you as you know when to plan that progesterone- that's all that matters! Yes, most definitely 3 is a most charming number than 2 - here's to this cycle and I hope you get that BFP!!!! Now, no getting sick again- promise me that- lol!!
