Post subject: Totally confused re: TTC
Hi,

I am a newbie and i am on my first month of ttc, trouble is i am totally confused over when to expect AF etc which is making it really difficult to know when to test. I feel totally stupid because im sitting here waiting for af to turn up but no idea when, which is making me imagine early pg symptoms. I know my last few periods and they range from 21 days to 30 or so. aggghhh so confused

Any help?

Thanks

My periods have been the same, ranging from 35-42 days after a few month they settled to every 36 days. Apparantly If you are unsure you should test on day 29 and every 3 days after, it can work out expensive!! x

Very Happy x

hi again, 5 weeks and 4 days was your longest cycle so i'd say you could if you wanted do a 4 days early test tomorrow or wait another 5 days and see if they turn up! good luck what ever you decide to do D x

Hi Natty79 - don't be too disheartened - back ache can be a sign of pg - also have you tried testing in the morning because that is when you have the most hormone in your urine. If you did it last night, you might not have had enough hormone to detect it. But looking positively, if af arrives, you can start again! I'm still waiting for mine! I wish something would happen! 41 days! GRRRRR! Lol! xx

Natty - it looks like we're at exactly the same stage - first month of trying and both waiting for positive result or af to arrive! How old are you?
Honie - don't worry hun - it's your first month of trying isn't it? Also, just think - you've got three lush boys already - keep that in mind and it will happen soon. x

Natty - I'm 23 so still young - kind of feel more pressured to get pregnant more quickly! Congrats on getting married! It's all go in your life. Hope the big day goes well and you get the perfect present!

Honie - don't feel so bad on yourself - I'm sure all of us at some stage have looked jealously at someone with a little baby and thought bad things! It's natural! One of my friends just had a baby - so adorable but hard cos she has everything I want. They're finding it stressful though - putting a lot of pressure on the relationship. I would def buy a test and do one next week to check - I really don't think it's anything bad at the mo honie. Don't give up this month yet! I'm trying to hold hope that I still am too but unlikely! xx
