mentally preparing for AF

Sun, 03-08-2009 - 10:54am

I had high hopes for this cycle and thank you for cheering me on every step of the way.  However, this morning my temp dropped big time.  It went from 98.44 yesterday to 97.97. At first, I justified it by thinking b/c it is daylight savings time, I temped 30 minutes too early  (not even a big time difference, I know).  I laid in bed for another 30 minutes and then temped again.  Somehow, it went up to 98.14...but I am really crampy and just know AF is on her way.  I haven't gone to the bathroom since early this morning because I don't want to see her.  I ended up crying in bed for another hour and talking with DH about what to do next.  Why this is so hard for us...could it be him (he has 300+million count but 2% morphology and our RE said that shouldn't be the problem)?  Is our RE doing the right thing?  You know all the questions.  Why does it happen for other couples and not for us?  I'm ovulating with Clomid, we timed everything perfectly....it just doesn't seem fair.  After crying for an hour, of course, I temped again and it was down to 97.74.  I think I need to throw the BBT away....I am too obsessed over it.


Thanks for letting me vent.  This is the only place I can go where I feel truly understood!

Lori,


I'm here with you. I am also in the 2WW (currently 9dpo) after doing injectibles with IUI. DH had 67 million sperm after wash, which is amazing,

I'm crossing my fingers that AF continues to holds off and you get your BFP!

Hi Lori,

I hope it's the time change that is giving you mixed-up temps and AF stays away. Don't count yourself out yet! (I know what you mean though about mentally preparing for the worst, I always do that too).

AF STAY AWAY!

If you want to stop the temping, tell DH to hide the thermometer and not tell you where he put it. When I was becoming dependent on ambien, I told DH to hide it and that got me un-hooked. It does sound like you need a break from the temping.


I might POAS wednesday but then again I might not. I am not sure. Don't want to be dissapointed. Beta is Friday.


Well, hang in there!! Don't lose hope! (((((((HUGS)))))))!

Caren-- I have thought about having DH hide the thermometer but I am just not ready to do that yet (maybe next cycle--if needed!).
