Hello,
I have read that only 2 days in a whole cycle u are able to conceive. I am frustrated already, but I guess I have no patience, but I tried since beginning February this year and I am not pregnant yet. I am 33, and I don't want to have a baby next year, when I am 34.. How can I know for sure when to conceive, and how realistic do I have to be... There so many of my friends, that have gotten pregnant so quick.. Please give me some advice, help, I am so frustrated... Thank you.

Welcome to Mothering.

I think that you will benefit from this thread for those of us trying to conceive #1 in our 30s:

After clicking on the link I provided, you just make a post to the thread introducing yourself, like you did here, and you can ask to be added to thread. I think most people will share their ages and how long they've been trying to conceive.

Hope to see you there~

Welcome to Mothering.

TTC (trying to conceive) can be more difficult than many people can ever imagine. Make your way over to the TTC section of Mothering, where many people have wisdom and stories to share.

Hope you enjoy MDC!

Welcome!

Definitely check out the Trying to Conceive Forum and learn some basics about your cycle and fertile days. Learn to "chart" your cycle if you can. You can start now for this cycle, no need to wait.

I am 32, and it took me 4 cycles to get pregnant.

And by the way, 34 is a great age to start, in my opinion! Don't worry!

Welcome!
I loved the book 'taking charge of your fertility'. It can be frustrating, but it is great to have a support group like the TTC group here!

Good luck.
