I’ve posted about our TTC plans; but a quick recap for those who might not know: We are planning on starting TTC in April/May, but I got my IUD taken out in October to let my body regulate…Though we want to wait, we would both be fine with getting pregnant anytime.
SO, I had a textbook cycle and chart my first cycle after getting my IUD out, but after my first period I was getting really funky charts this cycle. I can chalk it up to taking temps at different times, staying up late, drinking etc. but was having a really hard time reading my chart and was convinced I hadn’t ovulated yet. Until CD23 when I was worried that something was wrong with me, so I took a closer look at my chart and removed the wonky temps that I had excuses for and compared it with my temps from the previous cycle and realized I ovulated a day after DH and I DTD only using the pull out method! Although the odds of being pregnant were really slim, I couldn’t help but get excited and hopeful that maybe I was! The cycle before, I got my period 11DPO and I was 13DPO and still no period. I didn’t have any symptoms besides sore boobs, which I also get with pms, but I couldn’t help myself, I was excited. So I took a test that night and got a BFN and decided to test again in the morning like your supposed to and it was still a BFN. 🙁
I was so disappointed! I wasn’t expecting to be so sad about not being pregnant yet, since we aren’t really trying (just half heartedly avoiding). It really made me realize how ready I actually am!
I don’t know how I’ll deal with the BFN disappointment when we actually are trying! So ladies, how do you deal with the disappointment??

Is there a reason why you’re waiting to start TTC till the spring? This experience seems like you should reconsider when you start and maybe start trying now. 😉

@dreamocracy: haha Well we want to wait for a couple reasons, mostly because I want to give my body a chance to have a break from fake hormones before introducing the hormone craziness of pregnancy (I’ve been on some form of birth control for almost 10 years) and for me to get in better shape before everything changes from having a baby. lol Also on a lesser note, we want to deliver after the maternity changes to obamacare get enforced since our insurance doesn’t cover maternity/delivery at all (though we hope to deliver in a birthing center, it would be nice for a hospital birth to be covered in the event of an emergency). That said, I definitely think we will start trying in March instead. 🙂

I know how you feel. We are currently NTNP and will start to TTC in the fall if we don’t get pregnant before then. I went off the pill a month ago to regulate my cycles. I took an OPK just because I was curious to see if I was ovulating to see if my body had kick started itself again. I was so excited to have olutation pains and to see that dark line. And I was even more excited when DH initiated BD that night (he didn’t know I was ovulating) and pulled the goalie. Well for the next two weeks, all I could think about was “what if I’m pregant” and found myself getting really excited! Well, long story short, I got a BFN and now I’m a little bummed. I know that timing would be best for us if it happened sometime later in 2013, but still I was really disapointed!
