@HopefulPanda:  You poor thing! Waiting is horrible πŸ™ I’m TTC so I can relate that everything seems like waiting waiting waiting on something or other! But the good news is that you ARE late meaning that you are not out the game!!!! We all have our fingers crossed for you! 

Also you have regular cycles which is fantastic and if you are out of the running this month you wont have a long wait till next month πŸ™‚ I have such long cycles I’m sitting here willing AF to come just so I can at least gear up for the next cycle!  

fingers crossed for you that this is your month!!!!

I’m sorry your TWW has turned into longer….it just sucks I know!  I’m 15 DPO and still haven’t gotten a BFP either.  We BD last night to get things started, I wore a tampon and had a few spots of blood.  Then nothing until this afternoon….put another one b/c I saw some light spotting, wore it a couple of hours and a few more spots….took it out, nothing when wiping though….

I think she’s playing a really cruel joke on me this month knowing full well that I don’t want heavy bleeding during my trip this weekend.

I’m still cramping too and boobs are still a little sore….I’d try again tonight if you have the cheapo tests.  I think we’re in the same boat on this one and IDK what to do either.

@HopefulPanda:  I jus realised I sound like a bit of a freak as this is technically our first cycle of TTC and that the waiting I was refering to was thewaiting to get engaged, waiting to get married. We both wanted a baby from a few years ago but were not comfortable trying before marriage so it feels like we have been waiting forever just to try! 

My period is on its own sweet schedule. Sometimes it no shows for 6 months at the moment cycles are anywhere from 40 days to 60+ days.. Boooo hissss!!! 
Whats wierd is that I went on a VLCD diet and was only eating 400 cals a day in the lead up to our wedding and I got my period monthly then?! Freaky right (to clarify by BMI is 23 so I am not overweight). Now I am thinking maybe I should go back on the VLCD to see if that prompts a return of AF? 

I am hoping I could be pregnant this cycle but it just seems so unlikely πŸ™ Im hoping AF comes soon so that next cycle I can use OPKs and make sure we BD at the right time of the month!  

Oh god, vaginismus- you poor poor thing. I am glad to hear you can enjoy sex now though. The closest I have is crippeling UTIs which I get regulalry after sex. The idea of having to BD every other day is seriously scary. After I get one I am in agony for days and would basically rather do anything than BD. Also I have to pee right after sex or I will get one for sure, so I dont know how I will be able to lie down to help his swimmers πŸ™ 

If I were you I would not be able to wait until tomorrow morning to test again!!!!  Gahhh!

Oh, Panda, this waiting stuff is FOR THE BIRDS, I tell ya!

Isn’t it awful?

If you go back and read my “Disappointed: Did I test too early?” thread, sounds like we’re in the same boat in a lot of ways. (Just like everyone else here.)

I’d just like to say that I feel you on the disappointment and I also have been having the same symptoms as you. My period was due today (or really any time since Sunday, I’m not as miraculously regular as you) and I have been really crampy the past few days but no sign of AF. I usually only cramp on my first day of regular flow. Like you, I’m scared to look at the toilet paper and scared of her arriving at any minute.

I tested on Sunday morning to a BFN and am waiting until Saturday to test again, if AF hasn’t shown by then.

My husband proposed to me on the first day of the 2004 Games in Athens and it would be awesome for us if we got our BFP on the first day of the 2012 Games. But life rarely works out so neatly for me!

Also, FWIW, I have vowed only to use my FMU for testing. It helps keep me from POASing throughout the day.

@HopefulPanda:  I hear you on the not wanting sex every other day for a month, and I don’t even have vaginismus, lol.  Darling Husband I did that this month for 3 weeks this month while waiting for me to O, and by the end I was kind of tired of sex.  You should probably try charting/OPKs so you know when O.

@ChuckNorris:  I think it’s someone else with the same avatar.

@HopefulPanda:  Yes, Friday is the opening ceremonies and Saturday would be the event anniversary (first day of actual game play). If my lazy charting is even remotely accurate I’m already quite late for AF (could’ve expected it as soon as last Friday, as late as today) but I’m going to try to hold of until the weekend. The BFNs are just so demoralizing. LOL.

@HopefulPanda:  Hah I have totally gone for a feel! You are still in the game!!! Whooooooo hoooopp! 

Yep going to stay off the diet, I was tempted to go back on as it made AF “regular” well not as long as I am used to! I just want her to show up already so we can try again!!!!!

You are not abnormal at all in the BD respect (well if you are, then so am I too!) if we dont have sex for a while I swear I shrink and it takes forever for Darling Husband to be able to get back in (TMI I know) every other day for me would be really tough as I am always trying to prevent UTIs and sex just really aggrivates any sensitivies there. Luckily my Darling Husband is super supportive and is really careful about how to have sex to minimize problems for me πŸ™‚

Gahhhhh I am so excited that you are POAS tonight!!!!! Fingers crossed for you!!!!!
