I've been lurking on this board for just under a month when I can, and getting a feel for all the terminology and everything. Everyone here is so warm and lovely, so I felt I finally had to sign up and join in and start posting. :)
Husband and I have just started TTC and already I am feeling the anxiety and frustrations of 2WW, waiting to O, AF, etc. I had no idea this would be such an emotional rollercoaster! So, although I have only just begun, I definitely feel for those who have been working on it for a while. I was hopeful this month (imagining symptoms, being hyperaware of my body suddenly) so I felt incredible disappointment and heartbreak to find that AF really was on the way! I thought I'd get lucky since a friend of mine who recently gave birth got pregnant on the first try.
And I feel guilty for resenting her a little (I can't help it - I'm happy for her, but I do!) and I hope that's normal for this process. She told me to be patient (I'm impossibly IMpatient) and I know she means well, but truthfully, it hurts a little, coming from someone who got it done in one try! Just venting, but this seems like the place for it!
Anyway, thank you for letting me vent and pour, I am looking forward to sharing this journey with other ladies here. I am excited and happy to be here finally! I never thought I'd have that desire to be a mother, but now that something in me has "clicked," I can't wait! :)
