December - hope so! I can't recommend highly enough Taking Charge of Your Fertility - Toni Weschler. Fascinating, even for non-TTC purposes!
I also feel jealous about my friends possibly getting pregnant before me. I want all my friends to get pregnant the month after I do so we can have babies together but I can be first. haha isn't that so immature of me.
Sophie - glad your MIL is supportive! I'm sure your mom is just concerned and wants what is best for you.

@December My mum was a bit iffy about us getting married two years ago as she thought I was too young, so I'm not really all that surprised that she feels the same way about us having a baby. One of my friends told us she was 14 weeks pregnant at the weekend, they conceived while she was still on the pill, I'm excited that our babies (if we conceive relatively quickly) will be around the same age, but am also slightly jealous that they weren't even trying! Haha!Married my best friend 19/09/2011

@Andieta- Thanks! I hope everything goes well for you too.
@Alzora- Thanks! I hope this helps me get a baby too. The acupuncture doesn't really hurt. I sometimes feel a small pinch when they go in and out, depending on the point and whether I am in a sensitive time of the month. But usually I fall asleep during the treatment so there is no pain while they are in, for me at least. Occasionally my acupuncturist will hit a small blood vessel which will leave a small bruise but it doesn't really hurt. I have never noticed outward bleeding. As for marks- I can't see any so I don't think so. The needles have a closed tip and don't go in far at all, unlike a needle used for an injection which has a hollow tip and is much bigger and goes in much farther. I don't think there is a risk of them breaking off, they don't go in far at all.
@Sophie- I often find my mother in law to be more supportive than my own mom, too. Especially with respect to baby things (my mom thinks I shouldn't have one). Somehow it is more complicated when it is your own family.
@December- I really liked "Making Babies" by Sami David and Jill Blakeway. It was easy to read and full of personalized information about your fertility type (they have a questionnaire so you can figure out what your fertility type is), and it provides information from a traditional medical/western point of view and and eastern point of view. I definitely recommend that one. I also liked "The Infertility Cure" by Randine Lewis. However it is mostly from a natural/eastern point of view. If you were to buy one right now I would start with "Making Babies" because it is easier to follow and would provide a good background for "The Infertility Cure" if you eventually get to that one.

@andieta - I have to pick up yet another referral to get my labs done on Day 21. They check my progesterone levels to see if I ovulated. My doctor's office outsources their lab work, so it's always pick up a form at their place and then drive over to the laboratory to get it done. Then I wait a couple days and call the doctor for the results. I've got it down at this point!
@alzora -Yes, I'm a teacher. I teach elementary school. I provide services in English to children whose first langauge is something else. I love my job, but it's a little chaotic at the beginning of the year. Also, I feel bad leaving my dog home alone all day on the days my husband works too. My pup got spoiled over the summer with me being home all the time. I do like being back though. I actually got a little teary today seeing all the little ones arrive for school. They're so cute and tiny! Thank you for your prayer. I think I actually have a decent amount of people praying for me to get pregnant so I'm feeling good!
@december - Good luck! I hope your cramps really do have to do with implantation. I'm pretty sure one of my best friends is about to TTC. She's mentioned it casually, but I think they're going for it. I'd love to be pregnant with her, but we'll see. I had been TTC for 8 months about when my sister got pregnant on her 2nd month trying. I'd love to be pregnant with her too, but alas. :-?TTC #1
