TTC 6+ months January Support Thread

TTC 6+ months January 2007 Support Thread

Welcome to the support thread for those of us who've been trying for a little bit longer than the average bear. The 6-12 month mark in TTC seems especially tough because it's been longer than a lot of people but not quite long enough to qualify for the next level of treatment/approach. (Note that some of us have been trying for 12+, but we're taking our time and sticking with this thread for a bit!)

We would love to talk with others who are at similar places in
their TTC journey. Please jump on in and introduce yourself!

heres to a rockin' new year full of bfps

I love you ladies
post #3 of 1198
A new year... It is so weird that we have been off of all b/c for a full YEAR! Admittedly, I have not been as dilligent in my efforts as may be needed... I took for granted that I would easily get pregnant within a few months of stopping condom use. So, I have decided to do things differently this year- to that end, I have some "New Years Fertility Resolutions..."

They are are as follows:

**I will chart correctly, every day, not just every other day... :
**I will never have "baby making sex..." just kinky-fabulous sex with the man I love.
**I will eat well and workout every day so I can grow (even more) muscle, and be healthier! :
**I will not compare myself to others- I will be happy for their successes , and hopeful about my own :

I hope and pray this is the year we all acheive our goals and welcome perfect little souls into our homes!

What are all of your resolutions?!

Off to take Clomid everyone....YAY!!! I'm really so excited to take it again. I feel like it's kinda the *wonder* drug. I hope it works for all of us that are taking it this month!!!!

Happy New Year everyone!!

I managed to go out to a friend's house for the evening, despite being sad. I wasn't very social, but it was nice to be around a small gathering of friends.

AF is gone!! She was super, super heavy for a couple days, but only last a very normal 5 days. Let the bd'ing begin! With this every-other-day plan, I can tell I'm not going to be able to tell my cm very well. I already had what looked like ewcm (but was really from our New Year's dtd ). I do feel a little left out of the clomid club...

Stacymom - Congrats!!! : : :
post #14 of 1198
I think I *actually* O'd this month!!! I've been looking for it around cd 18, but it came earlier than I though it would... check out my chart and see if you agree. I missed a temp, but I had partial ferning on cd 14, and light spotting the next morning...

What do you guys think?!

post #15 of 1198
steph... I am right there with you about the "clomid club"

valarie.. yay for o... my temps are so NOT showing o this month.. and af is still not here... *sigh*

well I just found out tonight that dhs aunt is pg with #3.. I dont know how long they have been trying or if they have.. but my bil came today with his new fiancee.. and said when is C going to have a brother... (insert that face that you make when you feel like you just got punched in the gut.. here)

well night ladies

LILY... how did my "trying since" thing get removed? I just noticed that...

weve been trying since 2/06.. for #2

thank you
post #17 of 1198
Stephanie congrats on getting through your first post m/c cycle!

Valarie it's hard to tell with the missing temps, I hope it'll become clearer on your chart in the next few days.


Tenk : for you this month, I hope the clomid works for you again.

ocean, lily, Ity how are you all feeling from the clomid? I'm feeling a little left out too! Christy are you starting yet?

I'm feeling really low since yesterday, I don't know what it is really. I feel weepy and depressed about everything, maybe it's that this month marks a year for us. I caught myself thinking about the m/c a lot around new years remembering all the plans we had etc and it just all came back again, I was really doing ok for a couple of weeks and then BAM.

I don't know if I really ovulated or not, I feel like I did but my temps just don't agree. CM and CP are right but most of the hight temps were on days when I woke up late plus we were traveling. I should be feeling PMSy by now but apart from being emotional there's just no sign of AF coming.

I'm just really frustrated and not trusting my body these days. This isn't a good way to start my first day back to work, sorry for being so :
post #18 of 1198
I am feeling low today too. I had a nightmare where I was being attacked and calling for DH who was in the other room but my voice would only come out as a whisper. When I woke upset by the dream DH was already gone for work and he is also going to the Magic game tonight so I won't be seeing him until after 9pm tonight. I'm so co-dependent and I hate it when he is away but I know he deserves a guy's night out once in a while.

I'm also feeling very not preg at 9 dpo. I still have until monday for AF to be due but I am 90% sure I'm not preg AGAIN. If you look at my chart you will see that we so covered our bases this month so now I do wonder if something is wrong with me. So depressing. I can't help but think about all the women I know who got preg right away and don't seem to realize how lucky they are. Funny thing is...I used to be one of these women. So depressing. Also it's rainy and dark here. I'm forcing myself to go to the gym in hopes that it picks my mood up.

post #19 of 1198
uh oh... we are all down again.. at least were doing it together... and at least we have someone to talk to about it aside from our dhs

you ladies are my only connection to the outside world during the day... and I appreciate you

post #20 of 1198
Tara & Sarah I'm so sorry that you ladies are feeling so blue today. I hope that it does get better as the day goes on and they guy should produce some good endorphins for ya to pick you up.

Lily, Ity, & Ocean How are the egg makers today?

Stephanie You go get some girl .... *wink*

Valerie YAY! for O!

Crystal I hope you figure out your cycle soon sweet heart.

Can someone tell me why my chart and temps are all the same? the one day with the slight raise, I woke up 2 hours late. I don't understand it but I'll keep doing it AND using my OPK's so that it all makes sense to me....LOL. CD4 and AF is still here in all her glory...should be gone by tomorrow for sure. 2nd day of clomid this cycle, had a slight headache last night but the *clinginess* has started....I think DH likes it tho....hehe.
