Let's get those September BFPs!
Just an update.
It’s on to cycle 4.
I think you have the right to cry and feel sad and angry and jealous if you want. Who cares that you haven't been trying for 6 months or a year? Getting a BFN sucks. Really it just sucks- because it is against human nature to not hope and not think that we are pregnant and who wants to go through life that way anyways?
I say feel sad and angry and whatever else and soon enough you will be excited for the chances the next cycle bring.
Ashley - Yes!
Mary - I'm so sorry you're so frustrated right now. There are some people whose bodies are sensitive to very low levels of stress. Even the stress you're going through waiting to O could be enough to throw off your cycles, if you're one of these women. I know my sister is. They TTC for 4 mths with no result, then took a break for 6 mths. When they decided to TTC again the first cycle they didn't chart or think too much about it & she was PG that cycle. The point is that you may need to back off of the monitoring & try to just relax & have fun. What ever happens, Here's some ***baby dust*** for you!
Jenni - I agree that you have a right to what ever feelings that ou experience on your way through this journey. I also totally understand the need to limit the amount of wallowing in those feelings that you do. Stay positive as much as you can.
****Baby Dust**** for all of you!
Jenni,Sorry about CD1. I agree with the other ladies...its ok to feel anything you want! Good luck this cycle.
Mary,Hope you are feeling better soon!!
Cassie,Good to hear from you!! I hear ya on stepping away from the board..I imagine most of us do that from time to time just for our own mental health.
Alyssa,You're not out til you're out!! We'll see what happens soon!
AFM, well not much new really. TMI....I didn't mention it earlier because it seems so silly but I have minor itching down there (external only) so I'm not sure if I have a low grade yeast infection or what. Its a little bizarre as I have had maybe 2 yeast infections my entire life. I've read that itching can be a symptom but not as "reliable" as other symptoms. Anyway, still waiting, not expecting much I guess or trying to keep my hopes reasonable. Kinda hard to GOFO anymore when I'm a little tender...grrrr!! Oh well I guess...
Thanks Katie for my siggy!
Half to Whole
Mary - that temp drop really looks like you haven't O'd yet. Especially when you take into consideration that you had EWCM. I know it is fustrating to have a later O date (I am there!). It makes finding your "GOFO" time really difficult. I O'd in June on CD30 so I'm glad I wasn't TTCing then, LOL. Just relax and know that it isn't affecting your TTCing. You are having GOFO which is really all we can do. We *hope* temping gives us a better idea for timing but you just never know. I've seen ppl get pregnant a day or two after they O or on CD8! So as long as you are GOFO then you are definitely in the game :)
Andi - good luck seducing DH tonight...maybe you could pull out some lingerie or something enticing? LOL. I know how you feel tho, our GOFO week stretches into almost 2 weeks bc my window for O is so long.
Cassie - 12 DPO means we get to live vicariously through you, heehee. Just a couple more days right?
Alyssa - I really don't think at 8 DPO there are many ppl would feel any different even if they were pregnant. For most of us this takes a few cycles or even a year. Only like 65% of couples get pregnant in the first year of trying (or 55% if you are my age :)
Jenni - I'm so sorry about CD1. Remember that it takes awhile. I am kind of jealous of women who just get pregnant the first try but I know they are few and far between.
Ruby - trying not to be too descriptive here...but you mentioned it (*blush*)...the itching could be caused by DH's love juice dripping out and drying on your skin. Even if you wash right after, some can leak out. Just a thought bc I've had that happen and I have only had one yeast infection in my life.
AFM - We were vacationing with my mother so we started the GOFO waaayyyy early. We'll have about 14 days or so bc I can O anywhere from CD17 to CD30! But I am relaxed and rested so I am very happy.
PS: I have new pics to make a siggie now :) I lost a lot of pics when my computer crashed twice!
Ruby and Noel - Thanks for the support.
I'm "back"! Kinda. Will post more in a second, but as I'm reading along wanted to say:
Jenni - Boo for AF! She showed for me too, so we're cycle buddies.
Mary - A big "UGH" to your chart...what the heck.
Oh, MARY, what a bad day for such an untimely comment! UGH!! :o(
JENNI - sorry to see CD1... here we go, pluggin' away at another cycle.
DEE - are you serious about those stats, only 55% (I think I'm near your age) of women will get pregnant within the first year of trying?! Nuts. I hope that isn't taking into account how much we're all trying to TIME the darn thing, LOL. Sigh.
Hi CASSIE! I hear ya on taking a step back... since I've been more laid back about TTC this cycle the time has actually gone by sooo much faster!
RUBY - Accccck! I forgot what it was I wanted to respond to! :) So, hi! Oh wait, was it the itching thing? I have heard that could be a symptom... ya never know! Keep an eye on it in case it's an infection though.
((waving)) HI everyone else!
