Everytime my tummy is upset, even just a little bit. Or if my BB's a a little tender, I think oohhh this could be it, and then AF comes. It is so frustrating! Mainly b/c I get my hopes up so high, and think that this is the month!

Does this happen to any one else?

Oh yes, definately!! I think the hormones with AF make it worse, too. It is not only a let down, but you feel horrible, too. I have been trying long enough that I don't get to excited anymore. Sometimes, but I try not to.

Oh I understand. There are times when I know we didn't even "try" but I will still try to convince myself I "could" be. Big (((HUGS))) to you!

Best wishes to us all!!

Absolutely. It happens to me a lot more than I'd like. In January, I was a little worried because I couldn't remember getting my period in December. Then, I waited all of January. On Jan. 30th, I finally got my period but sweated it out all month long. I even told SO on a romantic trip to the local beach in a romantic way. AF came a week after. Then, I didn't get a period in Feb. or March. Took so many HPT their CEO should have a new house by now. Then, AF came April 7th. SO and I talked a lot. We decided, we really want children together (I have a 3 1/2 yr. old DS from previous marriage). We also decided that since I've had problems with fertility in the past, we better not let opportunities to pass us by, if we can help it.

So, to answer your question, yes it happens to a lot of us. And it's our psychological state that helps us through day to day by helping us think we are because it's the happiest scenario. Just ride the roller coaster and think happy thoughts. Remember you get to try again after AF comes and goes.

Best of luck to you always~

You bet it happens!

I've been driving myself and DH crazy these past 6 months, since we've been TTC.

Every month is just a long wait for AF NOT to appear. and BD is almost entirely in order TO GET PREGNANT!

I mean it can be so frustrating...this month I had nausea and cramps and AF was late and I was sooooooooo sure - but AF came two days ago! I was so depressed, DH didn't know what to do with me!

I promised him to loosen up a bit this month.

So you see, we all have our strange little moments.

I wish you all luck and hope to hear good news soon
