I have decided to take a new approach What's wrong, flat face? TTC since Jul 2012; 1 child; 3 angel babies; Texas 13678 posts

at TTC. I am getting rid of all of my ovulation tests and not going to be charting anymore or any of that. Right now I plan on focusing on losing weight and getting my body ready to carry a child and to not stress myself out with all of the testing and charting and temping and all of that. I am hoping this works.

good luck! I tried for over a year and a half for my first LO, I gave up hope and stopped trying. A few months later I got my BFP! Sometimes it just happens like that.

I am trying to be more relaxed about it as well. I had a chemical in February and it made me obsess over getting pregnant again. I don't get to see SO this month so either way I'm going to have to wait so I'm trying to be more patient about it.

That is what I am hoping for but I have decided to put it all to the back of my mind for now. It is too stressful worrying about everything needing to go a certain way and having sex often enough to make sure I hit the mark. So we are still TTC but without all of the extra stuff in there and no stressing about needing to have sex every other day. (though we will prob do it anyways just because I love sex) I am working on accepting that I may never have any more children and if I do then that is awesome!

I had a chemical in August and that is what made me kick the TTC into full gear. One thing is that since I have added on that stress I have actually gained about 15 pounds and I really am thinking it is because of that extra stress I don't need.

It took me exactly 11 months both times I TTC!



Hope relaxing makes your BFP come sooner! good luck

I did the exact same thing. I gained 8 pounds. And I'm now focusing, like you said, on losing some weight. I've been using myfitnesspal to track calories and water and exercise.

Water. I knew I was feeling off today. I have not had any. :?

It's one of my biggest faults. I don't drink enough of anything during the day. With that app you plug in how much you drink so it reminds me to get some water.

Yep. I am surprised I forgot seeing as my AC is currently out.
