Hi Girls, I hope you all are keeping well? I was just wondering how long you were ttc before you all got you BFP, this is now my third month trying and was wondering is there anything i can do to help the process along?

Hi Spoon, I think the best advise to you is to relax. The month we conceived was the first month that I actually stopped thinking about trying to get pregnant and we just did the deed whenever the mood took us. I think it'll happen when you're not expecting it. Its your 3rd month, could be 3rd time lucky fingers and toes and legs are crossed for you. :babydust: :babydust: :babydust:

Hi - i guess i was just lucky, came off the pill in Jan as we were plannin 2start a family as soon as we got married ( aug) .. from May on we both new it wouldnt matter what happened so we no longer worried about contraception but didnt concentrate on fertile days either - ( having said that i know we had sex about 6 times from day 10-18 in May & i didnt become pregnant)... In June i was away alot & we only had sex once during my "hot" days ! but that did it !!! BFP to my suprise , cause i had taught if it hadnt happened the month b4 there was no way it could happen that month . My cycle was abit mixed up tho , so now im begining to thinkmaybe i was adding up my dates wrong.... this is beginging to be a long borng post so il give up now..hehe Good luck TTC , it will work out v.soon - guess u just have to be patient ( easier said than done)... and mayb concentrate on havin fun sex rather than reproductive sex?! Also - TMI - but some people here have been concerned about the 'after flow' & have suggested lying in one place for a while after the act !! hehe.. i dont think so !!

It give the little swimmers a head start on their way up. Also this is really gross but I remember one time of doing the deed hubby left it in for a minute of so later as he said it would help. I was laughing at him but I think he could have been right.

I know exactly what you're thinking Spoon thats what I was saying to myself too, for years you'd hate to get pregnant and then all of a sudden you're trying like mad to get pregnant but believe me it will happen.I promise you.

Hi Spoon, It happened for us the first month too. We did it once or twice a day on days 11 to 15. V. important to get your days right. Didn't go running to the shower afterwards, and like Hairy Molly, sometimes just lay there afterwards for a while without moving. Might have helped. Also, we were both v. relaxed and having fun as we were sure nothing would happen for a few months anyway. Best of luck - I am sure it will happen soon for you!

Quick question for those who got a BFP - On the 2ww did you experience pains, like AF pains, only earlier than normal? I know I'm paranoid thinking that every twitch and pain is a BFP so was wondering what your symptoms were on the 2ww. AF is due on 11th so I have a bit of a wait, best of luck this weekend to all those ttc :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust:
