    Thank you I wish you every luck also....

    If only it was so easy to fall pregnant each time hey.... why were we told at school that it's so easy to fall pregnant?!?!?! If i had known, we would have started trying months ago!!!

    Don't get frustrated Renee. The more stressed out you make yourself, the harder it is to get a

    We took 5 month to conceive DS, which like you, felt like forever, but it's really not. When you think that any cycle, you've only got a 25% change of a pregnancy, it's amazing that people fall pregnant by accident.

    The other thing, someone told me when I was TTC that it can take up to 6 months for your body to not see your DH's swimmers as an infection and to stop fighting them off.

    Sending you loads of for this month!

    Thanks Celsie.... hopefully that pre-seed works lol

    Yeah i am feeling pretty frustrated lately (my mood says Sad but thats' cos our ****atiel just flew away today!!) and yeah it is getting me down but i know that i just have to be strong and keep focused and it will happen for us.... the right sperm and eggy haven't met up yet!

    Should we be having sex once per day?? Is that too much? because we enjoy it regularly.... i've read that we should only be doing it every 2 days but does it really matter??? I understand the sperm need time to rejuvenate but isnt 24hrs enough time??

    I was told that in a normal, healthy male, there is not need to wait two days inbetween sessions, as although there is a decline in numbers, it's minimal. When we were TTC DS, we DTD twice a day around O time for 3 or 4 days in a row. My poor DH was exhausted. I almost had to force myself on him.

    p.s. Just had a funny flash back. On our first month of TTC, we DTD 15 days in a row... some days was twice a day too. Now that's dedication! LOL

    When we conceived, we DTD every day around O time on my FS advice. 3 days before and 3 days after, oh and mostly in the morning, have no idea if this is better or not than night time.

    Hi Ren,

    Best of Luck this cycle

    DD took us 4 cycles and we are currently into our 8th cycle of TTC#2.

    I have read all of the responses and it seems that every TTC journey can be very different!

    Good luck this cycle Ren. I think we will ovulate very close together!! We might even have the same due date and we can be belly buddies!!
    I was wondering about DTD every day also, I don't want to miss O day!!

    I was told I could only conceive in doing IVF !!

    Anyway, we chose not to do IVF and after 2 & a half years of trying we conceived NATURALLY at the age of 39

    ... My healthy & bright (not to mention funny) lil daughter is now 20mths old

    Hi Ren,

    I check back into the TTC 1-6 months threads regularly hoping to see a BFP next to your signature. I reckon its only a matter of time and you'll be up the duff. Dont stress too much, I know, easy to say but hard to do, maybe take a step back from all the charting and obsessing for a month and see what happens? Just shag your gorgeous man when you feel like it and not worry about trying to make babies for a month. You may feel refreshed and reenergised and in a brilliantly becalmed state to concieve.

    Anyway, it took me 3 months and happened on the month that we were completely halfarsed about it.

    Best of luck Ren and your friends on BB are cheering for you!

    Fell pregnant the second month when I was 36 (miscarried).

    Went off the pill again about a year later and conceived round about the six month mark (when I was 37) but we weren't very disciplined about the timing (I wasn't charting and my DP is a shift worker anyway) so I think I would have been pregnant much sooner if I'd been TTC 'properly'.

    Doing very amateurish charting (just looking at days between AFs rather than taking temps as well) at the moment to see what my cycle is like before we definitely start TTC another. Hopeful that past history means we can have another gorgeous baby like DD who is now almost 6 months old, but my ob has warned me that as I'll be close to 40 there's a 50/50 chance of miscarriage so we need to start trying sooner rather than later. Just waiting to physically recover from dodgy pelvis or I'd be trying now!

    Just goes to show it doesn't always have anything to do with age does it.... I'm 26 and we're actively ttc and doing everything correct and into our fourth month ttc!!!! I thought we'd be pregnant by December.

    I think the early m/c we had in November really did muck me up.... and that if it wasn't for that m/c we'd be pregnant now and quite a few weeks along!!!
