Beware! Pity party in progress...
23

She's here. Once again, we've done everything right except the obvious. I'm always so positive that "this" month will be "the" month & bounce into the next cycle, reving to go. Not this time :( Dh is working ridiculous amounts of OT over the next month so I've already told him this cycle is a write off since I won't even bother "pursuing" him, like I usually do. He says we can "schedule" our bd'ing *sigh*.

The silver lining is a 26 day cycle (avg 23) & my lp is 13 (it's gone up a day each month), so I guess thanks are in order to my supplements. Unfortunately my fanny pak needs to be restocked....

Saturday marked my first twangs of prego jealousy too. I never thought I'd get to that point & it breaks my heart to feel that way. I don't want to be bitter :(

I really hope things look differently once af leaves because this feels awful. Here we go, cycle # freaking 6. Excuse me while I go & try to muster up some enthusiasm. Stupid tears are in the way...

Awe! Have that pity party honey, we all need it at times!! Chin up though, it WILL happen! It took me 10 cycles to finally get pregnant! And it was the last couple of cycles that DH had duty weekends during my ovulation time and I was crying to you girls over it...and what did you girls say to me? No worries, it will happen, we're here for you and we're going to make it happen! So now it's my turn! No worries, it will happen, I'm here for you and we're going to make this work! I'm not going anywhere until it does. I know what you're feeling right now all too well. AF is here, you were positive you snagged it this month, and yet again, you feel like you failed. But you didn't. What you did do was accomplish lengthening that cycle and your LP. That's actually really really good and produces much better eggs! So you're have won a small battle this month! Victory is yours in that department. And one day very soon, you'll be making other TTCs jealous. ;)

Now listen, let's take this opportunity to cry those tears and get them all out. And when you're done, let's talk Fanny Packs! Let's see what we can put in there, what works, what might not be working, what we can add, how we're going to take this month by storm EVEN with DH's OT. Take it from a woman that has spend too many nights worrying about duty weekends and ovulation, it's those least expected opportunities that churn out success!

Chin up my lovely, you are far too beautiful to shed a tear!

Thanks...I know in the grand scheme of things, it could be a lot worse but for whatever reason my hormones have gotten the better of me & thrown me into a ttc tailspin. And I realized that this marks our 7th cyle, but hey, what's another one?!?

Anyways, I picked up more vitex but still need to get more b complex. I'm gonna keep the epo this cycle since Ive heard it can take a while to make a difference & I need all the help I can get to make ANY ewcm. And I need to order more pre seed. I'm not gonna bother with the opk's - I still have a few digi's left & if I time it right I'm sure I can get that smiley. That's about it for the fanny pak.

Thanks for the support. Time to put on my big girl panties & quit my whining -ooh, wine! Gotta get me some wine!! Lol!

Getting AF really sucks, hang in there. I think it actually helps to throw a ittle pity party now and then, or cry it all out....at least it helps me be able to get up & move on. I also had my first twinges of preggo jealousy last week when I was basically waiting to m/c and my brother called to tell me they were preggo. I am really happy for them, but for the first time I felt badly for myself since things in TTC dept haven't gone very smoothly this time around. Anyway, to make myself feel better about everything I went out and bought some opk's, more prenatals, etc...just restocking that fanny pack! I really hope you get that BFP this next cycle, you're doing everything right, just hang in there on this crazy ride!

If it happens again next month to both of us we can have a combined pity party.

Thanks ladies! Pity party is over. Ugh af has royally kicked my butt this time around & I can't wait for her to just leave already & take her stupid cramps & fatigue with her...

Good call on splitting the booze bill for "next" time, Aimee. Fx'd it doesn't come down to that. Good luck with your "not thinking about it approach" this month
