@Lillyrose:  I didn’t get pregnant until my 8th month trying.  I didn’t temp, I took 2 opks when I thought I might be ovulating and we BD in the morning instead of at night that cycle.  I don’t think you have to completely relax, but try to stay positive.  The right time will come and worst case scenario you are one month closer to the one year of trying where you can go to the doctor for more testing.

 

Each day was slow, but overall the 8 months we tried flew by!

@Lillyrose:  we started to TTC in July and I just got my BFP, on our fifth cycle. One cycle was 19 !?!??! days long, I was so confused and just like, WTF. I don’t know whether to count that one or not. Anyways, I was worried, too, but really, it just takes time. I was sure I was getting my period the week before I got my BFP, because I had lots of PMS symptoms, including cramps. You could still get your BFP this cycle, or it could take a few more cycles. Keep on keepin’ on and having lots of sex. You WILL get pregnant.

I know how it feels. We are into cycle #7 and month 8. It’s very difficult to not get your hopes up, only to feel heavy disappointment. I keep telling myself that it’s meant to be when it’s meant to be. Nothing anyone says or does is going to make you feel any better. Believe me. But each month it doesn’t turn out, I tell myself that’s one more month I can prepare financially, physically and emotionally. I am so ready, and my future baby will know how hard I tried for him/her and how much I love him/her. 🙂

Totally know how you feel.  It sucks and seems like everyone pregnant all around you.  This is cycle #6 for us.

 

HUGS and know you are not alone!! Have a glass of wine and allow yourself to sulk for a night or two 🙂

I totally understand how your feeling!!! On our 5th cycle I got my BFP after thinking I was 100% out bc we only BD 2!!!! Times that cycle. All the cycles before that I symptom stalked like crazy, stressed, had melt downs (bc 10 people announced they were KU since we started)! And bc of all that stressy cycles were anywhere from 25 days- 37 days! That last and lucky cycle I really did get to the point where I said Fuck it, and wanted nothing to do with anything baby related bc I was so upset… I know it’s easier said then done, but try to relax, your time will come!

i can completely relate. We are on cycle 5. Each time I tell myself not to symptom spot, but as the TWW progresses, I can’t help it. I start peeing on sticks waaay too early. I ran the October POAS board and had to take a step back this month. But I’ll do it again for December. I love the community here and these ladies can totally relate to the craziness of TTC! 

I just wanted to tell you that you aren’t alone. Try to relax (I know that is sooo much harder said than done). I try to focus on other hobbies like running/yoga/taking the puppy to the park/hanging with my little sis who just moved back to town. And each time AF shows her ugly face I do something I couldn’t do while pregnant. Which for me is usually a glass of wine (or 3 hahaha) with some sushi. 

Just know we are here with you in this journey. 🙂
