Having never had kids I couldnt tell you from experience but watching my sisters go through it it was always about week after ovulation and relatively close to their period, and most woman think its a period. Usually a faint pink wipe never enough for them to get on their undies. One time it was just brown spotting. But typically, thats what is, just spotting and it isnt much and only for a day or 2.Married to my dream guy: TTC #1 since March 2012. Nothing yet, but praying.

My husband and I have been TTC since October. We haven't told our families, mainly because I don't like sharing what's going on with my health and also because we don't want to have to give "updates". I just really want to avoid the whole "So, how's it going?" with the suggestive tone, raised eyebrows, and creepy smirk that makes me uncomfortable and squirmy.
The whole process has been really discouraging to me so far... My mother said that getting pregnant for her was really easy (like within the first month of trying) and my MIL and both of my SILs are the same way (for example I have 6 nieces and nephews and another on the way) and I know that it's normal for it to take up to a year and that I shouldn't be worried/discouraged.. I'm just impatient I suppose.
I would also like to add that I love this thread. Finding it is what made me decide to join this site and it's nice to have a place to speak freely about these things without feeling silly. I hope that we all get our BFPs soonMarried to my Best Friend.
Trying for our first.

Welcome, Violetink! Sounds like you and I are in very similar situations. I'm trying for my first too, and have been trying since September, only a month before you began. MrsH recommended a book in her above post that you may have seen. If we don't conceive this month I will be ordering that, and I also plan to schedule my annual OBGYN exam for April and begin discussing fertility with her. Where are you at in the process? This week is "go-time" for me and my husband, and since my cycle is irregular I'd really like to try at the very least every other day from now until next Tuesday. AF is expected March 26 at the latest, so I've got a long wait ahead of me. Have you tried using Preseed yet? How have you been tracking ovulation? My husband and I have been using Preseed since the beginning, and other "techniques" I've been trying are lying in bed for about 15-20 minutes afterward, and not using the bathroom right away afterward -- just ideas I got through Google searches that are probably completely pointless. Anyway, keep us posted! Hope you and I get an Easter surprise!

Hi @violetink1231! My husband and I are keeping quiet on our TTC journey too. I did tell my parents when I started on Clomid just because I knew I needed someone else to know just in case something happens. Super paranoid, I know. And, since I am not telling friends or other family, it is nice to talk to someone besides my hubby about all my ups and downs cause, let's face it, men aren't always to most chit chatty, lets-talk-about-cervical-mucous kind of people
I know what you mean about people saying how easy it was for them to be pregnant. Most moms I know recently either got pregnant within one or two months or on accident. I just found something out about my mom that made everything fall in place... Ever since I was diagnosed with PCOS (10 years ago) my mom has been trying to figure out how I got it. I have a 2nd cousin who has it, my aunt has menstral issues so she thought maybe that my aunt had it, etc. THEN last month I told her that if I don't start my period that I'm going to go get it started with a shot and she responds that she had to do that a lot when she was young! Then she proceeds to tell me all these symptoms she used to have that align with PCOS! I was like, "you're just telling me now?!?" It would have been so nice to have had that familiarity and companion as I dealt with my body. It's kind of funny, I guess.
@alzora, this is baby making week for us too. Yesterday and today I received positives on my OPKs. Last month I was super stressed and crazed about everything and this month I am more relaxed, which is nice. It is weird ovulating and last month I kind of freaked myself out with all of the changes going on. I know that sounds silly but I haven't really had signs of ovulation before so I was constantly googling everything (which is never healthy, in my humble opinion) Now this month I feel like a pro hahaha
Ok, I have been holding off on this question cause it's a little awkward for me but here goes...does anyone's SO freak themselves out during baby making week and have a hard time, um, performing? I have had this issue for the last two months now. Not really sure what to do! I didn't even tell him i was ovulating this time but he says he just knew. I am trying not to stress out about it but I am! I make it so it isn't a big deal and I don't make sex a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am type of deal. I try to keep it fun and NORMAL with no pressure. I just don't know what to do. Thoughts? Advice?"Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible."

MIL (who I looove, honestly she's the best) that read "Any good news?" etc are slightly devastating. I know she had to use clomid so it's only out of love that she checks, in but stiiillllll. At work I definitely DON'T tell people even though I know they are thinking "husband (check), large income (check), house (check) ... Where are her kids?" My mom and likewise all the females in my family are extremely impregnable. My mom got preg month two of trying in her 30s. Sigh. I just tell people I'm "not trying to get not pregnant" if they ask now, implying I'm very cavalier about the whole thing. not.
