I have been lurking for a couple days, anxiously waiting for the opportunity to introduce myself. This seems like such a supportive community and I’m excited to be a part of it!
I’m 35 (will be 36 in December) and DH is 34 (will be 35 in December). We’ve been together for 5 years (married for two) - and we’ve always known we wanted to start a family someday. We’ve literally been talking about it since our 3rd date! That's normal, right?! Haha. We had originally planned to start trying immediately after the wedding, but so much started to happen - his grandfather passed away, his father had a heart transplant, and then he got laid off at work - there was so much stress that it just felt like it wasn’t the right time. I’ve always been a worrier, and eventually, I started getting freaked out that our chance may be slipping away. This summer, after talking it over, DH and I decided that while life isn’t perfect right now, we didn’t want to wait any longer to start trying.
So we've been TTC for about 2 months now with no luck. I’ve been using an OPK, but last month all I got was the flashing smiley face - what’s up with that?! I’ve recently decided to start temping as well (I ordered a basal thermometer on Thursday) - so we will see how that goes. To be honest, I’m a little overwhelmed, it seems so confusing.
Like I said, I’m a worrier so I’m really looking forward to getting to know people on here and to be able to chat about all of this.
I hope this into message is okay - I tried learning the lingo before posting, but that list is LONG! Haha. Hope to talk to all of you soon!
