@PoppyH:  I stopped testing. AF arriving still sucks, but I had to let go of worrying about it. I don’t even keep tests in the house. It’s really hard to go through the two week wait wondering if this is your cycle but I just try really hard to prepare myself for AF to arrive. I hope you get your BFP soon!!

I don’t know- last month was our first time trying. We really thought I was (period 5 days late which never happens).  I am trying to remind myself:

1. Even with perfect timing, the odds are 20% or so.

2. Telling myself that my period will come.

3. Reminding myself of the good things about not being pregnant.

4. Lots of people go through this.

@guitargirl:  +1 I think that’s great advice. I also tell myself that stessing about it is definitely not helping things…but relaxing is easier said than done…

When I got my BFN(s), I reminded myself of the positives of not being pregnant by going out for sushi and cocktails. It also helped when I stopped obssessing over every little ache and pain because then I didn’t set myself up for the expectation of getting a BFP.
