Default Trying for baby #1!

Hello all!

My husband and I have been trying for a baby for the past 3 months. When I stopped taking the pill we tried right away, but nothing. Then my period skipped a month! So we tried again during my last ovulation, but I'm not even sure about my cycle since I just recently got off the pill. Now my period is due sometime this week, and I hope it does not come! Another thing I did not know until yesterday is that lubricants prevent the sperm from reaching the egg, and lower your chances of conceiving! Grrrrrr! Today I started feeling lower back pains similar to menstrual cramps, but no period yet. I really want to get pregnant, my best friend is due soon. So excited for her. Anyway, feel free to share your stories, I'd love to hear your experiences!

I wish you the best of luck! There are lots of experienced ladies here with lots of great advice too. there is so much to learn about TTC!! If you don't have any luck soon, you might consider the book Taking Charge of your Fertility. it tells you all the stuff that the typical gym class presentation never told us

Welcome Welcome Welcome. I also recommend the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. I found it to be most helpful. I hope your time with us is short.

Thanks so much guys! I really appreciate your warm welcome. I will definately check that book out, though I hope I would not have to! I am very excited and hopeful that I will be pregnant soon. It took my best friend 2 tries and she was pregnant. She is due very soon. I will keep you updated on my progress. I just don't know how long to wait to take a HPT. I want to take it right away, but I don't want to be disappointed. I guess I will wait until next week, and if my period is still MIA, I will take the HPT. Wish me luck!
