I send you a hug.  We are in our second cycle and I already feel super stressed and everyone around me is getting pregnant by looking at a guy.  I don’t have an answer but am trying to remind myself:

1. many people take longer and I am not alone

2. Each cycle is only 20% 

3. One of my favorite quotes: Good morning, this is God.  I will be solving all your problems today.  I don’t need your help. Have a good day.

One more thought after look at your chart, your temps are really low post O. Have you had your thyroid checked? You could even lie and not mention TTC and say you just want it checked. I’d also consider getting a new thermometer just to make sure you don’t have a bad apple.

@proudcatlady Who cares if it’s lame! If it helps, it’s the best thing ever! I felt like I was going crazy because I feel alone so much of the time. DH is supportive but it’s not his body and he doesn’t have these overwhelming feelings of guilt and inadequacy that can come with fertility problems. That’s why I came back to WB for support and to feel a little less isolated. πŸ™‚

I’m glad you got some blood tests.  GL!  A lot of us can relate to your situation.


@lovemygsp:  I didn’t realize you could go to the lab and ask for any test you wanted.  My RE wants me to have all kinds of tests and I’m wondering if I need to go a little low-tech first.  I wish they would just put me on Clomid.

@proudcatlady:  I don’t have any suggestions, but I wanted to give you a BIG *hug*, I’m going through the same thing and your post has made me feel no so alone.

I dont have much advice on how not to stress because you are going to either way.  A thing that helped me was to have a night off every once in a while.  Me and DH would go out and grab some dinner and not talk about TTC at all. I felt like more than a broken uterus for a few hours and it was great.  When it was around O time we would spice it up so it was not just “hey lets do it my eggs are ready”.  Trying to figure out how to get pregnant became my full time job so I took a little vacation from it to clear my head and get my mind straight and add the fun back into my life that my stress had taken away.  I still have my freakout moments but have learned to just roll with it to some extent. 

Best of luck…you will be a mommy soon πŸ™‚

I don’t have any advice, just wanted to say, you might be having a tough time, but just remember how tough and resilient you’re being by dealing with this…I’m not even TTC yet, and I find myself in a rut every month when AF arrives. I just wanted to let you know that you’re so much stronger than you realise just by coping with this – no matter what your coping mechanisms are! xxx I hope you’re feeling better soon though.
