Temp drop and a BFN this morning. I know technically its still early, but I'm so over this crap. My last progesterone supplement is tomorrow then its wait for AF and onto month 11. I really don't want to hit the year mark. I will test again before I stop the prometrium just to be sure.

Thanks ladies, for sharing what DPO you got positive test results. Stupidly, we POAS at 9DPO last night (yes, at night, not even with FMU). Like I said before, my DH is a pusher! He said if I didn't pee on it, he would! It was stark white, not surprisingly. He wants to test again on Thursday which would be 12DPO, I would like to wait even longer. It's also very possible I will have AF by Thursday and we won't need to test at all. Not sure if my chart looks pregnant at all. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/38bca8

Shawn - sorry about your temp drop and BFN :( Was it a big drop? What DPO are you? Try not to give up just yet.

Em - I understand having your heart set on October. I really want it too. For me it has to do with announcing my pregnancy (so silly I know). I turn 30 in March and I really really want to be pregnant on my birthday. We are also going to visit DH's parents in February and I want to be able to tell them in person. I'm if not pregnant this cycle, we will miss that chance to tell them in person. :(

Oh Shawn I am so sorry!! TTC can be so hard, I really hope next cycle brings you your sticky bean.

E: I buy cheap tests from amazon and then test every day starting on 10 dpo until a temp drop. I could nevermanage to go a day without testing but understand the mindset of women who wait:-)

Thanks ladies.

E - I am 11 dpo.Drop was above coverline, but still pretty big. Yes, I know I'm not out yet (maybe I should listen to my own advice!) but I'm REALLY not feeling it this month. Tomorrow is the last day of prometrium. Here is my chart:

I'm basically just so frustrated. I really want to be able to just take a step back from the whole TTC thing, but I don't know how to do that when I have to make sure I know when I O so I know when to start the supplements. It doesn't help that the prometrium makes me even more hormonal about the whole thing, AND causes pregnancy symptoms. My bbs are pretty sore and it's for no reason at all. I never thought that when we started TTC #2 we would still be here almost 11 months later, with 3 m/c. I really don't want to hit my first due date without being pregnant and it is starting to come up pretty quickly, DH told me last night that he is starting to struggle with the whole thing a little bit as well and it broke my heart.

I'm so grateful to have my DS right now. He's such a great little man and really gets me through!!!

As you ladies know some days are harder than others while TTC, today is just one of those days!

I know I shouldn't technically count myself out yet...the combination of prometrium and the BFN this morning just have me a little hormonal/emotional :)

Well, my temp did go back up this morning, got another BFN. Guess we'll see what happens tomorrow. This charting thing is like a cruel game!

Still looking good, Shawn! :) And you know, you could have O'd on CD 19, since you still had a +OPK and that was the day your CM dried up. In that case, you're only on 11DPO.
