i am currently ttc and i have one daughter 10 months old.....
i have been off bcp for months now with nothing....
last month i even got a ovulation predictor and had sex everyday of the week (for the week i was fertile) and still nothing....
just hoping i am not the only one out there who is ttc and not yet pregnant......anyway feel free to vent or just share your ttc story.
(i would have put this in infertility...but i dont think i am infertile since i did already have a DD...)
anyway hope to hear from anyone!

We have been ttc for 3 years now. The 1st 2 years without anything. Started testing about a year ago. DH is good to go no problems with him. I then went and had different tests run on me. They checked for thyroid and pituatary (sp?) gland which came back fine. Then in Dec. I went and had a HSG done. They found then that my left tube is very narrow and the right tube is fine. I then went on Clomid for my Feb cycle got pg right away with it. I then had a m/c in April after being 8 weeks pg. Now I have been on the Clomid since May with every cycle. In July I went in for an u/s to make sure the Clomid is working. It was working that month because they seen 2 eggs that nice sized and everything. My doctor told me the other day when I was in to see her for my cold that if the Clomid does not work this time to let her know we may change something to get it to work hopefully. Sorry this is so long I tried to keep it short but when you are trying to cover 3 years it gets long.
Good luck with ttc.
hi jennifer and sue....nice to finally hear from some others in this position....i am not really sure why i havent concieved this time around....i guess God will give me the next bundle if and when he feels its time...but man oh man the wait is no fun
i will pray for you both....i hope for all of up the ball gets rolling soon and we all can have want we want in the end.....good luck to you both and keep me posted on progress....!!!! i will be sure to do the same
Chrissi good luck to you and definitely let us know what happens!!!
And Yes ma'am...I don't chart my temps...I tried when I first started ttc but just never kept up with it. But I have pcos and I don't think I have been ovulating so it wasn't helping me then. Although it probably would help me know. I finally just got my 1st period on my own in a year. I am doing opks right now. I started on cd10 and plan on going all the way through to cd24. Hopefully I will see something by then. It is hard to say when I will ovulate, if I even do. My period was forced by progesterone and started on July 4 and then my next period started on its own (with met) on August 20th. So I have quite a gap there...I am waiting to see if either I get pregnant this month or if not when I get my next period. I still don't know how long my cycles are going to be yet. Anyway my doctor told me I could come in and have bloodwork done to see if I ovulated...but I will probably do that next month.
I know charting would help me to at least know if I am ovulating at all...but in order to for it to really help you, you have to do it for months to get some kind of idea when you think your ovulating because once your temp drops you have already ovulated...so if you don't time intercourse correctly it will do you know good. Anyway I hope I get a BFP soon!!!
thank you jennifer....i dont usually chart my BBT (i havent yet bought a thermometer for that , as i hear you have to get one that is more sensitive than just a "normal" one)
anyway i am smack dab in the middle of my fertile time, doing the baby dance when we can .....hard to find time between his 50 hrs a week at work and our 10 month old DD.....people keep telling me i am am just stressed out about becoming preggo....that why i havent yet....kinda skeptical about that really, i have always been a worrier/a little stressed out and my DD was concieved after 3 months of stopping the pill....lol i think it is all in the timing....
well good luck to everyone again...keep us all posted!
i get to do the two week wait (TWW) now that is no fun but, i have been doing it for months and keep getting the BFN...maybe this time it will be different...although i have to admit i have little hope for it, as i am tired of being worked up for nothing.....
sorry to be such a downer....i just get tired of one line on the test, i really want to see two this time.
ohh and Yes Ma'ma i didnt thank you for your encoragment last post, so thank you....i never get tired of encouraging words.
