TTC for past four months

posted 1 decade 5 years ago
Hi, I am new on here. I am 25 and I have been TTC since August after I got married. I know it has only been a matter on months of trying but I am doing everything I know of to get pregnant - charting CM, basal temp, always staying laying down for at least 30 mins after sex etc. I feel that I am already getting down about this, each month I think I could be pregnant and then am always disappointed when my period starts, I have a 27 day cycle does anyone have any other advice? Due on my period on 10th December, just hoping it doesn't come, have sore boobs and bloated but have had these symptoms before so not gettingmy hopes up. Thanks

Firstly welcome to JP

My advice to you would be to relax a little. It sounds like you are a bit tense about getting pregnant and that often stops it happening.

I felt the same after a MC last year. My whole focus went on getting pregnant again. Making love turned into a matter of trying on the right days - not for fun and closeness anymore. I got frustrated each month I was not pregnant too. Once I got the mindset to relax as there was little I could really do, I fell Very happy

You haven't been trying very long and everyone is different. I also used the Basal method so knew when I was due to ovulate but remember to start making love from around 6 days before ovulation (sure you know that already).

Good luck hun Kiss

Welcome to JP hun, i hope you enjoy it here. Everyone is great Very happy

I can only re-iterate what krista has already said hun. The worse thing for conceiving is stress. The more het up you get trying to conceive the longer it seems to take. Stress can even stop you ovulating altogether. I think the most important thing is to relax and have fun and im sure it will happen. As krita said, you really haven't been trying for that long so i'm sure it will happen soon. I know that probably doesn't help matters at the moment but you will get there and when you do you will wonder what all the fuss was about! Good luck hun, Keep trying but have fun Naughty Xx

Thanks very much for your kind advice, I am going to really try to relax and 'let it happen' as they say but it is tough when you want something so badly!
Just one thing maybe someone can advise me on- my period is due tomorrow and I am always on time (28 day cycle), but today I had egg white CM when I wiped, usually you get this at the time of ovulation and I had this between 21st and 28th November so just wondered if this means anything getting it so late in my cycle? Not getting my hopes up but thought I would ask. Thanks

I would say wait until you are late and then test Smile

It took 11 months to fall on with my second and it's very usual to take 12 months to fall on. Enjoy the sex hun, and don't get yourself too wrapped up in having it on the 'right' days. It can also put pressure on your partner, which will also affect your chances.

Best of luck TTC, I hope you fall on soon x
