@whitegold - It seems to be every other one on my side.
My Mom was a Fertile Myrtle - pregnant with me within months of getting married. and even though she was told not to have any more kids (advanced maternal age of 32 (gasp!) and overweight with high blood pressure) she got pregnant with my brother and sister on 2 different types of birth control when she was 34 and 35. She did it just in time too since she was done with Menopause by her early 40s.
My aunt (mom's sister) never had children. She had Endometriosis. And when they finally discovered it in the early 80s, she had to have a hysterectomy.
I also had endometriosis. As did another cousin on my Dad's side... it does run in families.
I've often wondered if it had something to do with my grandparents. My grandmother only had the 2 girls - she had problems and had a hysterectomy at 29 yrs old. and her husband had the measles in the army - they told him that he'd be lucky to father any children at all, and if he did, they'd be all the same sex.
Generations of reproductive issues. I'm hoping that my sister is like my mom - a fertile myrtle.Mom to Weston Christopher, b. 2008

@Loveday, any signs of ovulation yet? Have you called your doctor or are you going to wait it out?
@Violetink, ahh, your symptoms sound promising! But I totally understand not wanting to let yourself get excited. Aw...I hope this is your month!
@Andrea, I have a feeling you will recognize fertile cervical mucus when you see it. I know that every woman is different, but for me it is something you couldn't miss.
@Frances, hope you guys got a chance to make a solid attempt today. We always seem to run into problems too during the most significant days of the month.
At the moment I am awaiting ovulation anytime between now and the end of next week. Currently feeling apathetic and hopeless with all things TTC. I have very little interest in it at the moment, and do not care about my impending fertile window. I'm coming to terms with the likelihood of my tubal infertility, and I frankly think that nothing we do this month will make a difference, so why bother getting excited. I'm not as depressed as this sounds; I'm actually doing fairly well overall, and just kind of numb toward the thought of TTC. On that note I am going to go grab a spoon and drown out my sorrows with a carton of Cookies & Cream ice cream.

Hang in there Alzora. I just wanted to say, it's really lovely how supportive you are toward everyone on this board. Clearly you have a nurturing streak, and I'm sure you'll be a great mama. By the way (as I'm sure you know) full-fat dairy is supposed to be good for fertility, so maybe if you eat enough ice-cream.... :-) I'll cross my fingers for you this month. Chin up.

12DPO. Pregnancy test negative. I know it's still early, but my period is due in two days and I feel out. I had a quiet cry this morning. I'm already over TTC and I've only been trying for three months.
