First Time TTC

I just wanted to know who else is ttc for the first time? I tried to join other threads, but they all already knew each other and there were so many people that it got confusing. So I wanted to start one for people who are ttc for the first time. This is my first month trying. I tracked my O day and BD every day from the last day of AF to the day after my O day. I have had some symptoms, but I don't know if it's too early to tell.

This isnt my first month ttc, but first month for this thread. What are your symptoms?

Hi Roxy, how long have you been ttc? My lower abdomen has been hurting ever since the day after I ovulated and my nipples are really hard and were sore until yesterday. I was nauseous all last week and hungry, but since yestersay, I dont really have many symptoms except for the pain in my lower abdomen. What about you, what are your symptoms?

wow,,, I guess you could say I have a few. My back aches from time to time. Fatigue, occasional nausea, bbs sore to touch, cramping, some breaking out, sensitive to smells, i cry @ a drop of a hat and terrible mood swings. (my poor dh). But, the most concerning to me is what happened on SAturday while @ the grocery store. I was pushing my cart when I had the oddest worst cramp ever. It felt like a 6point earthquake in my uterus. Like the thing was going to fall out of me. I almost fell to the floor it hurt so bad. And according to online calendar's I am supposed to implant today (i hope:)). I dont know if it was implatation or what... but, it hasnt happened since. What do you think?

Hi girls! I am trying for my first as well. I am currently 9dpo. Some of my symptoms are some nausea (last night ran to potty it was so bad), cramps(very dull), lots of CM (creamy whitish yellowish in color), and I think I may have had implantation bleeding which was only a very, VERY small smudge of pink on my undies, maybe seeing things ;-) I feel as if I may have gotten lucky this month! Even though we only BDed 4 and 1 day before ovulation. Concerned about not feeling ovulation pains, which I usually do. Roxy, how many dpo are you??

roxy... I have no idea what that could have been. I have some really bad cramps sometimes when I'm ovulating, but I don't know. Wow you really do have a lot of symptoms. I had a lot of those last week, but this week came, and nothing. I'm not gonna be too upset though if I get AF this month bc its only our first month trying. Shannon... I am 8dpo so we are pretty close. When is AF due? Mine is due the 20. I'm not exactly sure how many days my cycle is bc I have never counted. So I just counted 14 days after the First day of AF to get my ovulation date. How long have you been trying?

I am 10dpo. And today I am the most tired I have been all month. Today is my expected implant day.... ***Baby Dust on us all***

 

angelinakai - January 10

This waiting sux. I did notice tonight that my bbs are getting bigger, but they don't really hurt much. baby dust to all muah!!!

I have been trying for 3 months counting this one.

My bb's are just now starting to get sore, which they are usually sore way before now... maybe cuz I grope them to see if they hurt and make them hurt myself. LOL, who knows! I really hope I'm not imagining all of this!

Hi girls, my first time ttc, 2nd month running now, 1st month i was due for AF 26th Dec it arrived Xmas Day(lucky me). I should have o'd/or be o'ing at moment but i have noticed hardly any CM at all since AF came and went. So i don't know if i have already o'd or what? I am currently CD 18, so i would have thought that i would have by now. Last month cycle was 27 days. I am due on 22nd Jan. I swear last month i was the same as you Roxy but it wasn't meant to be, for me anyway. Good Luck to you though. At the moment my nipples are so sensitive to touch. When i take off bra at night, they hurt if fabric goes against them and same with bedcovers at night and i have like the worst feeling s of an upset tummy but i don't have one. Soory if really long. ***Baby Dust to all*****

Shannon. Thats funny about groping your bbs... I check mine all the time too.. and I'm like come on! just hurt! I wish I would get some more symptoms. I hope that ones that I have are not all in my head either. Linda... welcome! Have you tried and Ovulation kit? I might do that next month if I am not PG this month. what do you guys think or know about drinking caffine when you're PG? I looovveee coffee and have been trying to avoid it as much as possible. My dr said its ok to drink a lil, but it seems that most women dont when they're pg. what do you guys think?

Hi angelinakai, no haven't tried ovulation kit yet but thinking of getting a saliva microscope for next month. I am the same with coffee, I love it and i hope i can still stomach 1 cup a day while pregnant. Coffee gave it away for my friend though, she drank a few cups a day then both times she fell pregnant, the smell & taste of it would make her sick. Hope that doesn't happen to us! I think 1 cup a day is okay and i have heard that espresso coffee is better than instant or percolated, but don't quote me on that!

 

angelinakai - January 11

thanks Linda! I am still drinking a cup a day ... most days. I'm glad its okay though. I have heard that too, that when people get pregnant sometimes they get sick from coffee. I guess I may not be bc it sure isnt making me sick yet. so are you having new symptoms or anything? I bought a thermometer tonight so I can start charting my temps. I'm still not exactly sure what i'm doing, but I'm gonna read up on it tonight. 9 more days ... grrrrrr.. this waiting is makine me nuts, but I am sooo very thankful to have other people to wait with. It makes it so much more fun. dont you think?

 

Linda81 - January 12

I guess i prob not preg yet either because i can still drink coffee to. Heaps better and more fun if you have people to wait with, no more symptoms just b___bs feel different and nipples still sensitive. How are your symptoms going?

Hi girls. This is our 3rd month ttc #1. I'm on cd 9, waiting for O to happen. I ordered a microscope a week and a half ago, but it hasn't arrived yet. I suppose hubby and I will bd at least every other day, since I don't have any opks at the moment. Last month I O-ed on cd 16, so I hope my microscope arrives before then!

 

Linda81 - January 12

Hi Lin, good to know you are back home safe and sound. Hope your microscope arrives this week, i will prob get one for next month. I am sure hubby enjoys the bd.
