Well, how many months has it been since i've been ttc? On and off over a year... seriously ttc for the last 8 months now.
Last month, my AF didn't arrive on time, and thought "hey, maybe this is it!" but then it showed up 2 days later.
TMI: I (finally) went to GYN last week for my pap smear and to talk about TTC.
She asked me if i chart - i said no. I KNOW when i ovulate because i check my cm everyday. So I told her I was going to ovulate that week, and when she checked, sure enough she gave me some medical term that basically meant 'see some mucus- cervix feels like it's opening" etc. SEE... i KNOW.
So missing my O doesn't seem to be an issue as to why we aren't getting pregnant.
She said if I don't get pregnant this month, to start temp charting (though that's to predict O and since i know when i O i'm not quite sure what that will do)...
Then she said she could run some other tests.. and at some point I could go on a fertility drug. fun fun. Yeah, I don't want that.
So we had sex every other day b4, during, after O. I think I O'd on Friday Sept 15. (the past few months, we were doing it often, but she said that wasn't necessary, so i figured just try every other day this month to see).
I think most women who have sore breasts usually get it a few days before AF - whereas i get it before, during and after O all the way until a day AFTER AF.
It's been this way for the past several months, for however many years i don't remember. OCCASIONALLY I will not have any breast pain, but that is somewhat rare and hasn't happened recently at all.
WELL... my O has passed, and I have NO breast pain YET. So of course I'm thinking "it's a sign, it's a sign"... but if this was a successful run this time, my body wouldn't know it BEFORE O, only AFTER and my breasts were not sore before O. So why are my breasts NOT hurting at all?
Is my body fooling with me YET AGAIN!? They say "look for changes, and if you have changes, it is a good sign that you might be pregnant" WELL.. here is a really good sign- no sore breasts after O. Maybe it's a change in diet thought i'm eating the same stuff... maybe it's change in stress? (maybe i was less stressed this past month! haha)
So i don't know if no breast pain is something for me to consider.
But then I read that some people experience tender, itchy nipples after O as a sign of getting pregnant - which i have none- yet. How many dpo does this usual happen for those that would experience it?
So kind of confused on this whole "does sore breasts mean anything?"
Is there a heightened feeling of arousal after O? I have that, too.
I know implantation doesn't take place til at least 6dpo, and i would really only be maybe 3dpo so I don't think I would be experiencing ANY changes yet, right?
Each day is a wait and each day more questions: will my breasts start to hurt tomorrow and if they do, does that mean i'm not pregnant? If i don't see implantation bleeding in another 3-9 days, does that mean i'm not pregnant? If my cervix remains creamy cm, and it doesn't "disappear" higher up, does that mean i'm not pregnant?
I've tracked all of these "signs" every month, so not quite sure what i will notice this month. But making it is looking better this month because i can actually say there is one change so far: no sore breasts.
BOY, 2ww's certainly are horrible the more times I go through them!
