Hi!

I always post over in trying to conceive, but since I am TTC#1 I thought I would come visit over here as well.

Me and my BF who have been together for almost 5 years ( ) are TTC our first!!!! Just started our 3rd cycle actually trying. Hoping this is going to be our month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would love to get to know you ladies as I feel like you are probably going through and feeling some of the same things as me, where as I know TTC is TTC, but I just don't feel like when you are TTC #3, 4, or 8 it is quite the same as those of us who are still waiting on #1 or in my case have never been pregnant at all.

Hi

I'm Jen (26) one of the co-hosts of the board, me and DF (getting married in november ) have been TTC#1 since July 2011 and I've just started cycle #20, i've never been pregnant and had surgery in september to open a blocked tube.

I completely understand your feeling at home here, if i'm having a bad day its really hard for me to be on other boards where people already have children and have loads of beautiful baby pics in their siggies. (you'll notice here that even grads who post from time to time, hide their siggies)

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you better but I hope your stay here is short and sweet! Sending that cycle #3 will be the ONE for you!

Hey! I'm Sam. I've been married since Oct. I came off of the bcp in Dec for the first time after 10 years of taking it. I am glad you are joining us. There's a little less come and go in here than the TTC board.

I am hoping this cycle is your cycle!

Thanks for the welcome guys!!!!! It is nice to meet all of you!!!! I love the ladies over in TTC but it is nice to be somewhere where everyone is in a little closer to the same boat as you!!!

and yes, Jen, it is frustrating to see all the baby pics and pics of kids some days. I know it is still hard for them, but it makes me feel sad still. Like I'm the only one that doesn't already have a babbeh. Which I know is silly.

Not silly. You feel what you feel. I confess I had the urge to delete someone on Facebook last night after I read "I love seeing all these babies in my newsfeed!" Uhhhh...

Not silly at all, i for one know exactly what you mean, there was a thread on here the other day where someone said since starting TTC they now see babies everywhere! I really get it!

Jealousy of those who ttc and get pg straight away or for those who get pg by accident, is really hard for me personally but the ladies here help keep me sane and get through the bad days (usually around the crummy CD1 )

Oh and the 'hide post' function on fb works a treat!

yea, i usually just hide people who are driving me insane on facebook, I feel mean if I actually delete people.

another that is really hard for me that I feel really mean about but is SOO frustrating is when people post their BFPs over and over and over and OVER and OVER and OVER again. I'm like OOOOK I SEE THAT YOU'RE PREGNANT PLEASE STOPPPP!!!!!!!!! I know that it is a really exciting thing, and when I finally get mine I probably want to tell anyone and everyone that will listen 10 times, but it just sucks some days and some people it just feels like they are smearing it in my face.

Yep i agree with that too, again you wont see that on here, the ladies here are VERY sensitive to the fact that some have been trying for a very long time and that its hard. you may find some ladies keep on their TTC journal (if they have one) after getting a BFP and will post there but not on the main board, just until they feel confident enough to move over to grads or a DDC

Hey I've seen you on TTC, I dabble in that board too, but we're trying for our first as well and I completely understand what you mean about seeing the multiple BFP posts and the siggies with baby pics etc. I like it over here. I hope we both get to move on to DDCs soon.

Hi, I'm Lindsay. I'm relatively new on this board, but DH and I have been TTC since June 2012. I know exactly what you mean about other boards. When someone says that they are frustrated with their TTC for number six, I have a hard time sympathizing. I just want some indication that I can have a baby. Welcome, and I look forward to getting to know you.

Welcome! I'm Linny and DH and I have been TTC for 2 months. Now starting our third. Four months ago I came of of bcp after being on them for 15 years! I am frustrated after two months and feel guilty complaining when I realize some ladies have been trying so much longer than that.

This is a good board for support as you'll find. I'm glad I can post here since I don't have anyone to talk to in person about things except DH.

Good luck to you!

Linny I so feel that way too---I can't hold a candle to some of the ladies on this board, but someone did say earlier that all feelings are valid and it's ok to feel them.

Thanks for making me feel welcome everyone!!!! Been at work all day, stopping in before bed.

Thanks Jen for being so nice, you seem to do a really good job with this board.

I remember you Molly! :wave: Fingers crossed for lil turkeys!! Maybe we will get to go to a new board together.

I also remember seeing you before Caitlin, not sure if from TTC or from the times I have lukered over here. Thanks for the welcome. I hope you get your baby soon and that it is everything you hoped for. I am sure it will be worth the wait.

Hey Lindsey!! Yea, I worry all the time that I can't even get pregnant. Even though their is really no reason for me to be thinking that. I hope you get your BFP soon!!!!!

Hey Erin!!!! I completely understand what you mean about other people having MORE kids when you don't even have one!! I actually know two people who are literally about to give birth in the next week who already have children, one who accidentally got pregnant again, and one who intentionally got pregnant in all the wrong circumstances. It seems so unfair that I can't have just one and they are popping out more that they didn't want and can't afford. Sending you some sticky baby dusties.

Hey Linny!!! I know what you mean about feeling bad about complaining, I felt this way a lot especially when it was our first ]month of actually trying not just NTNP. I feel like I have been waiting SO LONG though. I always try to remind people that month one isn't any easier because all the other months or years are hard. It is hard either way.
