Welcome Saristan! I hope you have a smooth & brief time TTC Re: being nervous, our daughter Mila was unplanned (I was on the mini pill) so we kind of got thrown in the deep end there - no time to consider "will we be good parents?", although before I was pregnant we had talked about having kids at some point in the future. I also remember my husband (partner, then) having a mini panic attack the day we got home from the hospital. He kept saying "it's such a big responsibility!" and just looking down at this tiny little bundle that we now had in our lives. My philosophy was, yes, it is a big responsibility. But you don't have to face the enormity of it all in one day. You just take one day at a time, do your best for each day, and everything will be ok.
December - sorry to hear about your period, but I do like how it marks Day 1 of your new cycle. Fingers crossed for you that this is the one!
Alzora - I'm semi worried about PPD. I didn't get it with Mila but I have a history of depression and anxiety, so it's always something to be wary of. Especially as we won't be in NZ for long after the birth this time, so I won't have such a good support network. I found getting out and about really helped - I joined a bunch of mother & baby groups so I had something to take Mila to every day and people to talk to when my other friends were busy working.
Also jumping in here to say I'm happy to be added on Facebook.Mother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014

@Maggie, wishing you luck as you start out your first cycle of TTC!
@Seirenreign, did you take another pregnancy test today? I never take them until after a missed period. I've only ever taken them twice and the negatives broke my little heart. Are you having any other hopeful symptoms? Fatigue, frequent urination, nausea?
@Saristan, good plan to start without any TTC aids. That may make the process more enjoyable and less ritualistic for you, which is a trap many of us fall into.
@Casilayne, do doctors know what the problem is but not how to fix it, or are they clueless as to what the issue is?
@Andrea, we might ovulate on the same exact day. I caved and used ovulation tests last night and today, and I think today's was positive but I expect it to be a quicker and more obvious positive tomorrow. Also I don't yet have that lovely ovulation glow to my skin and facial features so I don't think today is the day. I am weird; does nobody else have that? Anyway, my husband and I are going to give it a go tonight regardless. You and I will be two-week wait buddies this cycle!
@December, that sucks! :/ I hope Cycle 3 is it for you.
@Milasmama, if we can be of any help at all after you give birth in lieu of a "real life" support network, we are here.
I've created a private Facebook group for anyone on the forums who wants to connect on FB. Let me know if you'd like to join. I made it private because not everybody in my life knows I am TTC and I don't want them seeing me in a baby-related group, and also I want to respect your privacy.

@December - positive thoughts for cycle 3!!!
@alzora - no I didn't take another pregnancy test yet, trying to hold out for next weekend! Besides the tenderness not really a lot of other symptoms, although when my husband opened tuna last night it did bother me more than normal but no nausea! So only time will tell. The sad thing is even if it is positive next week my husband feels strongly we should not tell our family until 12 weeks, since our last was a miscarriage. I want to tell everyone after an ultrasound with a heartbeat. We absolutely cannot tell my daughter until its viable, because she reminds me everyday I can now pick her back up because I do not have the baby in my belly, the ignorance of little children, she means well. Well Good luck on your TWW, wishing you a joyous outcome!
