I've thought about starting a TTC journal for a while, but could never think of what to put in it. Now that my 3rd TTC cycle is a bust, I think it's time.
I guess I should start by explaining what got me to where I am right now. DH & I got married in July of 2006; he was 23 & I was 19, almost 20. We'd dated for almost 3 years and knew it was the right decision despite being so young. We were the first of our close friends to get married, but now most of them are & two of them already have kids (both of which were "oops" babies). We had a few things delay our original plan to start TTC in December of 2007 (mainly a cruise booked this November), and ended up starting in June of this year. I stopped my BCPs in February, and now I wonder whether that was a good move or not since it seems many people get pg right off BCPs. :shrug: I guess I'll never know. I always assumed we wouldn't have an issue getting pg, but now reality has shown we aren't the lucky "first try" couple. I was hoping that we'd have a due date before summer (it gets HOT here!), but right now I'm looking at June at the soonest, so there goes that dream.
Anyway, today starts my 4th cycle and I feel so confused about why we aren't pg yet. I know 6+ months is average, but I'm so impacient. Plus I stopped BCPs in February, but had to wait until June for the cruise (because of the 24-week limit), so I feel like we've been trying forever even though we really haven't. And since my niece was born last month, I've been bombarded with the "when are you guys going to start your family" question. :roll: We decided not to tell anyone that we are TTC because DH's brother told everyone and they had to put up with 6 months of "any news yet?" from the whole family before they conceived. But it's almost just as hard to keep it a secret. I just hope this month is "different" although my hope is dying little by little each cycle. I know I'll be pregnant someday, but right now it feels like it won't ever happen. Well, here's to Cycle #4...may it bring me better luck! :clinkingbeer:
