This is a place to discuss some general themes such as financing your journey, fertility treatment 35+ etc.
For TTC i would advice you the following:Schedule a preconception visit. Consider genetic carrier screening. Take folic acid (and watch out for vitamin A) Give up binge drinking, smoking, and drugs – and get help if you need it. Stock your fridge with healthy foods. Check your caffeine intake. Aim for a healthy weight.

Depression is normal when you are going through something like this, I was depressed the past 3-4 months and I am a psych nurse! I teach about depression and coping skills every single day and couldnt keep it from hitting me! I just now have came out of it. I finally was able to take my own advice and it did work for me. I just woke up a day after my last AF and was like, THIS IS ENOUGH! I am choosing not to contiue this way. I was so tired of crying.. .I look around me and can honestly say, my life is great even if i dont have a baby. A child would however make it 100x better and if i have too, I will adopt. My suggestions are too. Find someone to talk about your feelings regularly, this can be a friend, counselor, family member. It has to be someone that listens to you and doesnt just say, "it will happen". make an effort NOT to isolate yourself. Stay active, take a walk or something like that. Get involved in some kind of belief system. If these things dont work, see your doctor, there are safe antidepressants for ttc. I know how over whelmed you feel. It is really hard when TTC doesnt happen after a few months and when the depression sets it you can feel like the only way out of it is to get pregnant. this is not true, you can find happiness again! TTC consumes us and we live our lives in 2 week segments and everything we think about is TTC related!!! lol, this is exactly the way it was for me when i was depressed.
Hey to you sweet girl.I hope you are doing well. Good to have you here. I don't know have any idea about TTC.. I hope you are doing okay and everything is fine at your side. Be positive and be happy. I will remember you in my prayers. Lots of love to you. God bless you dear.
Oh, that's so nice of you. Hope everything will be in your favor. Dear, the most important thing is to prepare yourself for it. Eat healthily. Don't use alcohol or any kind of stuff that reduce your chances. Just take it normally. All the best.
