Forum home Getting pregnant Trying to conceive

newbie

Hi all, I'm new to this site, just thought I'd say hello and wish everyone who is TTC the best of luck.

I'm 26 my OH is 27. We've been together 4 and a half years now. Lived together for 2 of those years. We're planning to marry in 2 years time.

We're in month 3 of TTC and it's so hard not to be obsessed already. Not sure whats going on with my AF came off the pill had a visit 32 days later which I thought was great seemed like I was working well without my pills, then 35 days after that one I had a visit which only lasted 2 days. Spent 3 days thinking we might have managed it without really trying too. Now I'm not sure when I'll be getting my next AF 32 days, 35 days...

Wondering if anyone else has had similar problems when they came off the pill?

  • Hi Angie,

    (Changed my screen name, thought it looks better with my actual name on!)

    I think because we have talked about it for the last 2 years, but OH has been working away for 12 months doing training, so feel like it's taken forever to get just to this stage.

    He's finally home from training, and working an hour away so he's home every night now, instead of only home on weekends, which is great and has finally given us the chance to actively start ttc.
  • HI NATALIE WELCOME TO MFM'S I'M ZOE I'M 28 AND HUBBY IS 31. I'M MUMMY TO CHARLIE WHO IS 3 AND 17 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH BUBBA NO2.

  • Hiya Zoe,

    Thanks for posting. Congrats on baby no2!

    Yeah I started on the folic acid about a month before I came off my pill.

    It's really hard when friends are annoucing they're pregnant and they say it wasn't planned. Really makes you wonder what you're doing wrong when you actually want to get pregnant.

    Another friend of mine has been trying for 8 months. She's having irregular periods so she's back and forth to the doctors. Which makes me feel guilty for moaning at 3 months of trying.

    We're going away on holiday in a couple of weeks. Hoping if I'm not pregnant this time round I have AF before I go away. I'm thinking Las Vegas is not the place to be having a period image !!
