Hi, I've lurked around for awhile and decided to join today. My DH(29) and I(24) are ttc #2 and are now on month 6 as of a few hours ago when AF reared her ugly head. With our first, who was a surprise, we didn't have to go through this stressful time. She is now a 21 month old, beautiful, smart, healthy little girl.
Last month we had a cp at 5w3d. But my Dr said she saw no need to wait so we tried again this month. I am 12dpo today on my 33 day cycle (which is much longer than it was before DD.) My brother-in-law sends me a text announcing that he and his wife, on their first month of trying are 6 weeks along with #2. Don't get me wrong, I am happy for them but **** does it hurt. Then at work tonight along comes AF. And I proceed to cry in the bathroom...
I don't think it would be so hard but the DH doesn't want to tell anyone we are trying until we are sure we have conceived. So besides him, I have no one to talk to. So here I am relatively annon. portraying my frustration.
After my first, I just didn't think it would be this difficult to get pregnant a second time.

I understand. I am right there with you. It took seven months to conceive my son. We have now been TTC our second for 12 cycles. May will be a year. As that ugly year mark gets closer and closer, I'm getting more and more freaked out. I have two friends who started TTC around the same time as me and both are pregnant and even know the gender. And here I am still waiting for my BFP. It's so hard. My cycles have gone wonky these past two months so I called and have an appointment with my OB on Tuesday. Even though we haven't finished our 12th cycle, I am going to go ahead and tell him that it has been a year so that he can test my hormones and hopefully give me some answers. Pm me if you want to talk. I know what it is like. And it stinks. Good luck.

Bed dance every other night(higher sperm count) and after use and instead cup (walgreens, tampon isle) this keeps the sperm close to your cervix and no leakage, since it's not collect menstrual blood you can wear it overnight, remove in the morning. Cough syrup helps thin cervical mucus so sperm swim better/survive longer. Only lube with preseed. I have 6 sons of my own, had a few as a surrogate and expecting and new one in January. There are phone apps that will follow your cycle to help you map everything. Also you have to stop stressing the baby making..relax it will happen ..took us a weekend in the country to get my mine off off of baby making before my eggs scramble lol got pregnant the night we got home
