I'm very new to this and I really don't understand alot of the things i've learned throughout my research. I don't have alot of people to talk to because I really don't want the continued stress of family members. So here it goes, my name is Amanda, I'm 23 and I've been married to my wonderful husband for a year on March 20th. I'd really enjoy to make some helpful friends with helpful advice

Hi confused aka Amanda
I am also 23 and my name is Amanda as well.
I have not told my family either because of several different reasons. We have been trying for about a month now.. my fiance proposed three weeks ago. this will be my third child and the first he and I have had together. I am extremely excited and anxious. We are using My Days application on my phone and his to keep track of my cycle. Today is suppose to be a high fertility day for me. I am very anxious to get prego... and I would love to have friends on here to talk to about ttc...

Good luck ladies. I'm Lola...and I am much older than you, but I do understand your frustrations. I am also TTC though IVF.

Just a little advice (because you are all so young!)...relax. I know its easier said than done, but I just read an article today on whereismydoctor's facebook page. It pretty much says that if you do things to relieve tension and stress, its not only good for your relationship, but it also helps prepare your body for pregnancy. The article talks about doing things like yoga, aromatherapy, something called reiki (anyone know what that is?!?) and even taking a vacation really do increase your chances of conceiving.

I guess it's worth a shot, right? I will definitely use any excuse to go to the spa...and this one is the best excuse

I hope everything goes well for all of you!!!

Hi Girls,

Im new to this site and also trying to conceive too (first baby). I am 29 and married for a year and a half... my husband and I are on month two of trying to conceive. Last month, I used ovulation prediction test strips from the Internet... It was a bit frustrating guessing if the lines were the exact same color! No success last month. A few days ago I bought the clear blue easy ovulation test kit... It gives u a happy face if you are ovulating and just a circle if you aren't. Well, I thought I missed my ovulation but I would up getting a happy face today... I hear they are pretty good... Pricier than the Internet cheapies, but it took the interpreting work out of it...

Also, my friend who was trying for over 6 months told me she got pregnant by using the ovulation predictor tests and using robutussin to thin her CM. I googled it to see what she was talking about and there seems to be a lot of info on it... I'll try anything! I'm taking the kind that is only the expectorant... ? I asked the pharmacist.

I wish you guys good luck and lots of baby dust. Hoping to make friends to chat with throughout this process!!

This may seem like a silly question, but are the ovulation digital tests reusable? Or are they only one use?

My husband and I are trying to conceive as well. I think we've done several tests from my doctor and yet I'm not pregnant. It is indeed frustration because just when we have decided to have a baby, it's been hard for us. He's 36 already and we don't have a baby yet. I am 10 years younger than him. I don't know what seems to be the problem because we are both capable having a baby.
