Count me out this month πŸ™ 

Just been to the toilet at work at my period has started πŸ™ 

Gutted because I am 3 days late and really got my hopes up. Even asked DH to buy a pregnancy test on his way home. (I’ve been putting off testing early to save money on tests) haha. 

Congrats to the bees who are pregnant!! Hopefully won’t be seeing many of you next month and fingers crossed you all move into the pregnancy boards.

@Jazzylove : Thank you, it’s tough to feel those cramps again and know that again, it’s on to the next.  But onwards and upwards, right? πŸ™‚

londongirl1988 :  I’m so sorry – I know how tough that is.  I use my “first half of cycle” two weeks to work out as hard as I want, drink lots of coffee, and alcohol if I want it.  That’s my silver lining. πŸ™‚

Even though I’m out this month, I feel SO EXCITED for all you lovely mamas who have BFPs!  So thrilled for you, and you give me hope that it’s possible too!!

Ugh! Guys! My mother knows way too much…. I’m her first born and my only other sister is still in high school so she has no grandkids and she’s been waiting for us to start trying… we told her last year that it would probably be this year and she was here visiting two weeks ago and asked how trying was going and i was very honest with her and said it’s going to be a bit challenging and i explained what AMH test is and that mine is under 1.0- she asked me what they do about that and I told her my doctor had prescribed some medications. I did not tell her what ones…. she called me an hour ago and asked how the clomid is going…. I was caught off guard and said it’s going fine and she asked what CD i was on… 😳…. and then she looked at a calendar and calculated when I need to POAS and when the due date would be. I want to get excited with her and I love that she’s into this stuff but i don’t want to get her hopes up…. what the heck do I do now??

NewlywedinRVA :  Oh man.  I feel your pain on this, as I have a Mother-In-Law who’s way too involved…

I would just try to be as graceful as you can and let her know that given that it’s been a bumpy road, you’ll be sure she’s the first to know when there’s something TO know. Until then, she needs to give you the space and privacy to get to know your OWN BODY which is a highly personal thing.  I would just let her know that you KNOW she’s excited for grandchildren but that discussions regarding the TTC journey are best kept between you and your husband for now, because there are so many intricacies and personal details that are just uncomfortable discussing with others.

Before we were married, I had my future Father-In-Law ask if he could send me any articles he managed to find about optimizing conception.  Um.

It’s hard because you don’t want to squash her excitement, but it’s stressful enough keeping up with it yourself.  You don’t need an audience.  So sorry, bee. πŸ™

krm1984 :  such good advice, thank you! Ugh! I would die if my father in law started talking to me about conception…. I am a pale redhead so I would instantly turn bright red and wouldn’t be able to hide my embarrassment. Yeah my mom was on TTC journey with me that took her four years so I didn’t give her much credit but she probably is all too familiar with what I’m going through- she had horrible endometriosis and needed two surgeries before she was able to get pregnant. I just need her advice on a need-to-know basis

I think I’m out too ladies. I took another test this morning and it was so negative there wasn’t even an evap for me to obsess over. Oh well – I was really hoping for an October baby anyway.

Fertility Friend says my next period is due 1/31 so I’m filling another out!

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 28/30

Baby #: 2

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD4

Ovulation Date: Unknown. I temped last cycle and it doesn’t look like I ovulated. 

POAS Date: 1/31

Usual Cycle Length: 22-24 days

Cycles Trying: This will be #2 (last cycle was kind of a wash though)

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Prenatals, OPK’s and temping.

Trying anything new this month? I bought a new BBT that is being delivered today to temp with but other than that, no. My temps were all over the place last month so I’m hoping my BBT was just old and wonky and not that I’m not ovulating.

NewlywedinRVA :  I would tell her that it’s been a hard road for you and every time you calculate a due date or a POAS date it leads you up for disappointment and would rather not get yourself worked up, and you don’t want her to do the same. Tell her you wait for your period and try to ignore the dates once ovulation has passed so you prefer not to talk about it. Then if she later asks about your period or when you ovulate just tell her you don’t wanna talk about it. Tell her it’s too hard of a topic to keep bringing up and you need her to keep your mind off of things. Make it sound like it’s her job to keep you distracted and she’ll feel like she’s helping?
