Thank you all for the welcomes
@ktook76 yes I am in New Zealand, I see you are in Australia. So we're both experiencing Winter. Brrrrr its cold here.
@Alzora, here's my story
I grew up thinking I would get married really young and have lots of babies. But spent my entire 20s asking God "Where is He?" He turned out to be right underneath my nose but I was unsure for a while as he was a single dad and we have an age gap. Ffw 2 years I am now extremely happily married to the most amazing man and am a stepmum to a wonderful stepson.
My parents had a lot of trouble ttc. I was born 7 years after they started ttc. So I braced myself for a potentially long wait. We were shocked and thrilled when we found out I was pregnant on our first try. We were then devastated when I miscarried in March this year. We decided that we will wait till July to start ttc again, as we had a big overseas trip planned for July and didn't want to travel in the first trimester ( not that I think there's anything wrong with that, we're just extra cautious after the miscarriage).
So yeah its been hard holding off trying and I still get sad when I think about the baby I was carrying and how big it would be getting now. But I am overall feeling stronger now and am looking forward to ttc again, which is just around the corner

@Rachel, aw, I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment today. During the first few days of my period I always have a really hard time looking ahead to the next cycle, but by about Cycle Day 4 I begin counting down the days to the next fertile window. It's only about two weeks away!
@Frangipani, I'm sorry to hear of your recent loss. A few others on these boards will be able to relate to you from their own tragic experiences. If you don't mind my asking, why did it take your parents so long to conceive--did they seek medical answers on what the hold-up was? What types of TTC materials have you stocked up on, if any? I used Wondfo ovulation tests for two months and loved them, but this month I decided to skip them because now I know when I am ovulating based on bodily signs. When I use them, I tend to be even MORE obsessive about TTC, and my husband and I really want to be more spontaneous about it (hah!). My husband and I are also using Pre-Seed, a sperm-friendly lubricant. Others on here track their basal body temperature, which I have not yet done because it sounds like a pain in the butt.
Winter in New Zealand...that sounds so Narnian!

Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in glorious light.
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

One thing I wonder about Mucinex and PreSeed and the cups too: Is there any chance that they allow semen through that is inferior in some way? I guess part of my question is are the morphology and motility of sperm related to the quality of the genetics they carry?Do things like hostile CM weed out weak sperm, only letting in the strong, and does this means that weakening that barrier/vetting system increases the chances of genetic problems with the baby.
Not sure that's even an intelligible question.

Welcome to all the newbies and thankyou all for sharing your stories. I love reading this thread and look forward to reading what everyone is up to, it's become part of my morning routine - coffee and reading this forum!
I've jut gotten home from a month long holiday and am feeling incredibly jet lagged; wondering how much this will affect my cycle? Anyone else had any experience?
@daisychain & cvdutch; i have thought about that too! I'm yet to use preseed/mucinex but am looking into purchasing both so am interested to see the answer to your questions.
As for my ttc hisotry, trying for the first time and only on my second cycle off BC, currently in my fertile window - that is if I am ovulating. I've decided to give the OPK a whirl next month hoping that my cycle is back to normal.TTC #1

@milasmama - Good luck! Sounds hopeful. Fingers crossed for you!
@frangipani - Welcome to our thread! I'm another southern hemisphere dweller - I'm in Australia. My parents had a hard time conceiving me, too. Whenever I want to discuss baby names with my mum she gets a little funny because she's worried I'll take a long time to conceive as well. They took four years. Their problems were two-fold - contorted tubes and low sperm count. I think they both had surgery. Luckily nothing hereditary, so I'm hoping I don't follow in their footsteps. They conceived my brother two years later with no intervention.
@alzora - We're heading into our fourth month trying. I'm well over it. Let's get pregnant, already!
@rachel - Sorry to hear AF arrived Better luck next month.
@khaatje - I'm sure you've already mentioned this, but where do you live?
@cvdutch - I tried Robitussin (same as Mucinex) last month with no luck! I'm still deciding if I'll try again this month or not.TTC #1
