Hi my name is Jojo I'm pretty new to this and I'm nervous. Never used a chat room for anything before, but I'm desperate for tips and tricks as my bf and I have been ttc for more than 8 months now. I hope to get to know all of you and share alot of stories with you too.

Welcome JoJo. I'm Linny and have been TTC for just 2 months, now in the third. There are some ladies here who have been trying for as long as you have or a lot longer. You'll find much support here, but hopefully you'll soon have a BFP (big fat positive) and won't have to stay on this board for too long..... so once again, welcome!

Hi Jojo!

Let's get some info. You've been ttc 8m. What were you using for birth control prior to that, and how long had you been using it.

What have you tried so far.



Now.. Hi! I'm Ashley, I'm 29 and my DH and I have been trying for our first together (he has a son from a prior marriage) since December 2011. I've tried BBT Charting, CM charting, Vitex, Soy, Progesterone Cream, extra Vitamins. Less sex, more sex, certain positions. I'm sure there's more. LOL.

Hi, Jojo and welcome!

I am Sam and I've been trying with my husband since I came off the the birth control pill (bcp) in Decemember. There is a lot of information on this board so just sit back and relax.

The "trying to conceive" board has a wonderful sticky containing information about the basics called something like "helpful TTC info".

Hi my name is Erica!
DH and I have been TTC for the past 8 months also. We have been married for the past 8 years. It has been about 6 years since I stopped taking birth control. Until 8 months ago we weren't trying but we weren't doing anything to prevent either. In December I was diagnosed with PCOS. I have been taking Provera, Metformin and Clomid. I have also been temping and taking OPK's each month. I have also been lifting my hips after and hoping that gravity will help us out. Hopefully we will get our BFP soon. Good luck and lots of baby dust to everyone else!!!

Hi, Jojo and Erica!

I joined this board just last month, and I've found it really helpful. DH and I have been TTC since June. I chart, use OPKs, prenatals, and vitamin B6 to extend my luteal phase. I hope you find the info and support at this board as helpful as I have.
