NWR: TTC website

I love you girls here but I need support in a new area in my life. My DH and I have been TTC. It has only been a few months but we have a couple factors weighing against us. I just want to be informed and would like people to talk to who understand my optimism followed by disappointment each month. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a supportive site. I have Goggled and lurked on a few but the formats seem so old school and some of the talk creeps me out! I need a TTC PW style site. lol


TIA

I wish I could help more - this site seems pretty good - they have a decent selection of different types of chat boards. http://babyfit.sparkpeople.com/messageboard.asp

I'll ask my BFF, she's a marriage & family therapist and was on a msg board when she was TTC that she really liked. I'll find out which one.


Good luck!

My DH likes the 'medical sites' b/c they are more informative and some still have forums w/out the drama, you know?


Hang in there, it will happen!  Are you at the point where your charting your ovulation and cycles, some people don't actually ovulate 2 weeks after the start of their last period.  Some people ovulate later.  My friend was trying for 1.5 years, and eventually found out she was ovulating on the 17th day actually.   Have fun with it and don't stress about it, your little miracle will come!

Funny you say that HMM ~ we're not TTC but I went to my GYN about 3 1/2 weeks after my LMP and she said she could tell I was ovulating then - I always assumed most were 1-2 weeks after. I would have never guessed.

Yep, everyone is different...


You can use this monthly to get an idea of when most typically ovulate:

Yeah, like HMM said, hang in there, it'll happen! My BFF had a hard time TTC, she misscarried once and couldn't conceive for a full year after. Then she completely gave up on charting and the Dr's treatment and gave accupuncture a try. She got pregnant the first cycle after her first treatment and my godson is friggin awesome. ;-)

Thanks guys for your support! I was in the ER last night for the second time this year and I have multiple cysts on both ovaries so I'm freaking out a little that it hasn't happened yet. I chart, I take my temp we try on days 10-18... ugh we're young and healthy what's the problem here?

So, I can tell you are referring to something about children but I think TTC needs to be added to the PW acronym list b/c I can't figure it out...I only imagine.

Amiller when I was TTC I used to go on yahoo answers, however once in a while you will find someone who is not ttc and is a jerk. I think it would really help you if you don't stress about the cysts, they are very common. I also have them, and two little girls.


My first I got preggers with right away, and it was just luck. I had not been stressed out about it. My second we tried for 18 months and we tried hard. I gave up and we thought that we would adopt. Two months after I gave up and no longer cared I turned up preggers. I think that it was because I was no longer stressing.  Stress is really harder on your body and your cycle then most people realize. Keep up the excercise routine, it does help. They also say that dairy, like ice cream and yogurt also help when you are ttc.


Trust me I have been there. I know how disappointing it can be to not see that second line on the pt. Especially since my dh would always say "your going to be this month I just know it." Then he would by a test the day before I was supposed to start and bring it home. For a year and a half, I finally got to the point to where I didn't want him to even bring it up.


I have heard about these pills that are non prescription, they are more like vitamins and herbs that have had good reviews. Then there is also prescription meds, but many doctors want people to have been ttc for at least a year. Have you had an appt. with your gyno, it might be a good idea this way they at least know that you are ttc. This will help later if you do want a prescription.


I used to have quite a bit of info on ttc, but my hard drive was replaced this summer and I know longer have it. I'll check one of my old e-mail accounts and see if I have stuff saved in there. I'll pass it on.

Hopefully your feeling better Aimee!  Thanks soon2be for your personal story, its motivational!  Although I haven't been through this, I have many friends that have and seen the hardships involved, as well as serious miscarriages in our own family- (my sister almost died after one) and I know how emotional this can be...  Everyone is so different and faces so many different things while pregnant.  You make yourself very vulnerable in the process of BOTB/TTC/ and motherhood to many things...


(((sending hugs your way)))

Is it possible to set up a page for the ladies that are TTC and maybe those that are already preggo since it seems most brides stick around after the wedding. I really don't want to leave as it is the most friendly community out there!

This site has some good info. I know there is a forum but I'm not sure how active it is. Check it out though just in case. :)
