Melissa, sorry AF had to ruin another cycle. Onward and Upward, girl!

AFM, I'm still here. Been away for a couple days trying to find myself and rethinking this crazy TTC lifestyle. And of course, I came up with the same thing- I want a baby! I'm 7 dpo and have absolutely no symptoms. BB's will start to tingle if I sit and poke them enough but that's all I have going on.

Michele, I hate that you are in yet another long cycle and I'm hoping you get some answers soon. Hopefully the insurance will come through before long and you get in to see the doc.

Sending prayers and BABY DUST to everyone here.

Vickie, I hope this is your month! Lots of baby dust to you!!

Yeah, I think the problem this month was that I was sick so we could not DTD pretty much until ovulation time. Looking back on when I got pregnant with DD (yes, I did record our DTD dates LOL), and also with my miscarried baby, both of those times we DTD at least once right before ovulation time. It's harder now with a little kid...we can usually find some time to DTD, but often one of us is sick or something so we miss some prime time. It's been that way every month we've tried so far. :smileysad:

I guess if it is meant to be, it will be. That's what I tell myself anyways.

Melissa - 38

DH - 38

DD - Almost 2!

Annemarie, I might order a copy. I've been on their website a couple of times since you mentioned the book. Thanks guys for bearing with my crappy moods of late. I hate being that crappy mood lady and, it seems, lately I've been that girl with much more frequency. I bring people up, not down. Not to mention, I am bringing myself down. I do think though that AF is returning... my spotting has picked up today. I'm actually going to KMFX'd that tomorrow she comes full force... I must be nuts. Ha! It's true though Annemarie, it just takes one or two extremely irregular cycles to make you "yearn" for the wench... How bazaar! I mean, we all want her to be late or not come, but we want the prize that comes in the box. The last couple of cycles, I got the Captain Crunch but the prize was not there. So unfair! :smileywink: Also, I had a talk with God last night since it seems I needed to feel recharged. Here's to my old friend coming on tomorrow for sure, going away within 4-5 days and allowing to leave my home. Then, hopefully, onto a fresh, NORMAL length cycle, complete with a clear ovulatory pattern. I am so not giving up on this thing, not by a long shot. My gloves are on, and I'm fighting!!! :smileysurprised:

Michele-I reread the book this week, and it meant so much more now that I have had so much bad news.  A cheap investment for inspiration.... get it on Amazon.

I also contacted a lady that teaches Yoga.  I used to go to her class about 5 years ago.  I am going to try and schedule a private class for fertility work/poses.  I told her I needed to promote circulation in that area. lol. 

You go girl...instead of being down, let's just get good and determined! lol.  I am off to start packing for my seminar.

Fight girl, fight! You are totally allowed to be down, we all get that way. I was just thinking this morning that I want a day off from being: wife, friend, sister, daughter, co-worker, mentor. All of it. Just one day entirely for me. Don't see when that day will come but when it does I will cherish it. Routing for you michele. Take this time for you. We will understand and support you.

Oh Vickie, I totally understand. Uncooperative hubbies are not what we need. You do such a good job on this board..... here's hoping for lots of BD this month.

I believe in fate and what's meant to be and guess I can just about accept not having a baby if it's for any other reason than us not at least having a go each cycle. ie things beyond our control

My hubby is the same ,he says "it'll happen, don;t worry!" but as so many of you say on here it ain't gonna happen without some help from hubby!! It's not rocket science....

Looking back at the past year, we've BD only once or twice each cycle around the time of + OPKs. I'm thinking this probably isn't enough. That and being over 40. I think we've got lazy as with our son (I was 38), we only managed one lot of BD on + OPK day and that was enough. (It took a year to get there though, incl a chem so it wasn't a doddle)

We want to give it a real effort now till the end of the year and if things haven't happened by then have a rethink. Last month was out as hubby was ill. This month we BD 5 times in the week around OPK ! Haven't been so active for years!!

But I can't help feeling I am not in good enough shape physically for a pregnancy,. Not sleeping enough.... stressed about various family members with problems; BMI = 28 and I can't stop comfort eating.  Feel as though I need more positive energy flowing through me before I've even got a chance....

Anyway ladies, keep cheerful and keep seducing those lucky hubbies.......

Helen (40) x

I had to smile when I read your post! Oh how many times have I dreamed of checking into a hotel for one full day by myself with only a book and the day to sleep away. No one needing me to do things for them. Just for one day....
