flossy.lou:  Ugh, I’m right there with you. 5 (FIVE!!) friends are expecting before the end of the year. I We’ve only been trying for a couple of cycles, but it feels like forever because my cycles are really long (currently on day 71 – kill me) and irregular, so it’s nearly impossible for me to predict with any certainty when I O, if in fact I am, and I feel cheated out of a fair shot every 28 days, even though I know that’s irrational. Even so, I may karate chop the next person who tells me “It’ll happen when it’s meant to happen,” or “Just relax and it’ll happen!”.

capitalbee:  not knowing exactly when you are ovulating sounds like a great excuse to have daily sex to me! At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself on our ttc journey 🙂

LilliV:  That’s exactly what I’m telling myself! I suppose it’s not the worst thing in the world, although I would like to be able to concentrate our efforts, so to speak.

flossy.lou:  I’ve discussed it with her and she sent me for bloodwork to check my hormone levels, and everything is normal…I don’t really know what to make of it, I just hope I’m ovulating.

flossy.lou:  I could temp, but I’m terrible at waking up when the alarm goes off and I just can’t seem to make it a habit. My brief foray into temping tells me that my BBT is erratic anyway, so it would be very difficult to pinpoint when I O’ed without knowing how long my cycle was going to be. I’m using OPKs and charting CM and CP, although OPKs are frustrating as well. Last night I got the closest I’ve ever had to a positive, although still negative, so I tested 4-5 times today hoping for a real positive, but no luck :(.

flossy.lou:  I was pretty obsessed in our second and third cycle TTC…

We’re in cycle 4 and today is CD16 for me, yesterday I made the decision that I’m taking a slight step back this cycle. I’m still going to be temping (so I can confirm O — since I have longish cycles) but I’m not going to allow myself to google every symptom and twinge I feel.. It made me totally crazy, and kind of took the fun out of it the last 2 cycles, if that makes sense.

I’m also considering not temping post O, just so I can really limit being crazy during the TWW, because that was the hardest part for me (I think it is for everyone lol)

Its also really easy to get lost down the Google TTC Rabbit Hole lol, and looking at other TTC’ers charts on FF so I’m going to try my best to avoid that this time around 🙂

Same here. Although we aren’t TTC right now, we’ll be staying in a month or two. Two of my close friends are poignant right now and it’s not helping. I want to get pregnant now! Not in one or two months!
