Do you have a TTC deadline?

Darlene - May 27

My husband and I have been TTC for some time now. I have decided to keep trying until the end of this year. If Im not pregnant by then, my husband and I both think that it would be a good idea to take a break for a few months. In the meantime, we have been doing evrything possible to help. Mu husband has started wearing boxers instead of briefs. We both cut down on caffiene, and Im trying to lose a few pounds if that will help. Any other suggestions that might help? Is anyone else setting a timeline?

My husband and I have our deadline this month. I'm waiting to start my period and then we're going on birth control. It's been 8 months since we started actively trying and it's just gotten to be too hard on us. My husband is starting to upset with how I cry every time I get a negative pregnancy test. So we're taking a break for 3-6 months, depending on how we feel and when. So I know exactly how you feel, you can only try for so long to get the same result every time, and it gets to you, so you have to take a break. The time to relax is good for you. I wish you luck before your deadline comes.


Just a suggestion! - May 27

I understand the taking a break part, but I think you guys should just not do any charting or counting cd or anything. But it takes a while for the bc to get out of your system so if I were you guys I would just not take the bc still but dont do anything else towards trying.


Still Trying - May 27

We have been trying for 5 months, which is not a long time. My doctor suggested that I stop working out so hard. I am not super fit but I like to run and do kickboxing. I also think our problem is that we are so uptight about it. We want it so bad so worry about it. If we are not successful in a few more months we are going to start adoption paperwork. We both agreed that we are not going to try any fertility medication. We had a hard time deciding whether to adopt or have one of our own anyway. Best of Luck!
