dispup :  Sucks, huh? Oh well. Have you started your next cycle yet? Are you still mad at your husband? ☺️ I think I’m officially over the disappointment of what happened in July now that a new cycle has started.

Ok ladies, my body the last month has been a complete nightmare!! I’ve had a 3 week long headache, so tired and angsty all the time lol and According to FF and my body giving off weird vibes I was certain I ovulated on July 29-30th so BD both nights bam, then Tuesday August 2nd rolls around and for the first time *TMI alert* I have this like sticky clear blob (egg white cm?!?!) in my panties when I go to the washroom – but that is it never again do I have it – then I had a bit of cramping Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning

so when the F did I ovulate LOL I don’t have the egg white CM ever or watery even – can I still ovulate without having that!?!

UGH I promised myself I wouldn’t get crazy since it’s our first month TTC but I just ordered OPKs because I have no idea how to read my own body!!

ilovethesun :  Haha your posts make me laugh!  I am waiting for AF to show up, spotting due Wednesday.  ALTHOUGH….we did BD O-4 so even though I know I’m out, I still have a teeeeeeensy liiiiiittle bit of hope.  But we did not BD anywhere NEAR O in my opinion.

 

I’m not mad at him anymore.  I feel like a jerk.  I know he has these issues because he wants this so bad and he does have a lot of pressure on him to perform!  My plan for the next few cycles is to temp, use my expensive digital OPKs and only BD close to my expected O without telling him.  I’m going to try to keep it fun and see if he can get out of his head.  

 

Also, I read Taking Charge of your Fertility and I feel a little overwhelmed, but also really prepared to take this TTC head on!

dispup :  I actually lied to DH about when FW/O date actually is – I told him its a week later than it really is.  So he thinks all the extra BDing we are doing is just my hormones going crazy after coming off BC.  Yes, I am totally abusing his ignorance of how this all works, but I figure this takes the pressure off him and I get extra coverage just in case.  Plus, if I fudge the dates for long enough, I’ll probably start to confuse myself, which will also take the pressure off me!  Ohhh the games…

So today I started some spotting but I am not really sure if I would even call it that. Nothing except when I wipe really hard there was a slight light pink/brown hint. I am on 10 DPO and my period is due on 14DPO. I have in the past had spotting before AF but I am unsure if this could b implantation bleeding. I tested yesterday with FMU and it was negative though I only used a cheapo test. The day before yesterday I used a first response test and it was negative. Not even sure when I should test again if I should even bother at all.

here i am DPO7, O was on CD17 and feeling a little down and out our BD timing was terrible due to DH and long hours on a project at work so i think we ended up with O-5 and O+1. I know we just need that one little swimmer but its hard to hold on to the hope.

It just seems like every time the window comes around something comes up, work or problems with family. the usual life stresses. I dont want BD to just become about TTC which is why i dont press DH harder when maybe he doesnt feel in the mood because of a really crappy day. But then as another window passes i get more down about how long its taking. I have so much respect for the ladies out there that have been at this for much longer than me, your strength is inspiring. FF is saying AF is due on the 15th being CD30 but im slightly irregular so im not going to test until at least 18th if AF hasnt already made an appearence. 

baby dust to all
