In Response to Re: January TTC
[QUOTE]I'm not offended by any of the opinions posted. I honestly don't regret making the decision I made to wait two months... but maybe I'll feel differently if things don't work out down the road and will be sharing the same advice. But since we're just starting our TTC journey I'm still feeling hopeful.

That's a relief, thanks. I was just pointing out that that surge of initial hope can trick you into making decisions that you might later regret when hope has fizzled. But, for all this talk of potential regret, you'll be pregnant first thing, no doubt. ;)
Hope is a funny thing. It's only a positive thing if what you are hoping for actually happens before too long. If it doesn't, you start to see hope as a cruel biich who seems to enjoy letting you down. I, frankly, hate hope and am on a mission to warn people of her fickleness.
DH had extreme hope when we started to ttc. He believed it WOULD happen and quickly. So, when he was "too tired" now and again that first year, he thought it would be no big deal to miss our best shot that month. Now, 3 years later, he has regret about that, and we obviously can't redo that year knowing what we know now. We'll never know if those months here and there were the difference, and no one can tell us they weren't.
But, like I said, for all this debbie downer talk, you'll be the next BFP we read about!
And, speaking of BFP, great news that it's sticking, cici!!
