ShellVee:  thanks for the info! I’m thinking of starting on CD 12 then since my cycles have never been less than 30 days. Understandable for you, since yours have been weird, to start early! Here goes nothing πŸ™‚

yellow7404:  I don’t know as much as the other girls but maybe throw the 16th in there too. Seems more important to get the days in before O so I’d get in as many before as possible! Good luck!

yellow7404:  EOD is better IF DH has any count issues as it gives the “boys” chance to build up again. Also not to put a dampener on it but after a few months trying every day you’ll burn out and start resenting every day sex πŸ™‚ (of course unless that was your schedule pre-ttc – if so more power to ya :)) We aim for EOD from the day after AF until the day i get a positive OPK and IF we feel like it we will try for 2-3 days in a row (only happened once so far). Meaning we start around CD8 and continue EOD until around CD15/16.

I agree with Friday13th thou chuck in the 16th too incase your app is wrong and you O earlier – dont wanna miss a month cos of a crazy cycle πŸ™‚

And again if you notice a random sign (ie heaps of CM etc) maybe even go that day too just because if you both feel like it. Thou as long as there is some action every 2-3 days there should be some sperm hanging about when you O… πŸ™‚

fridaythe13bride:  Yeah I’ve only had that one random month, usually i O around 15 BUT just in case I start early… Good luck with it all… I only started on them 3 months ago and i found them really interesting… haha i treat everything ttc like one big science experiment – i am still so amazed at what my body actually does each month based on the cycle. Temp increases, CM, LH and saliva ferning – and thats just the stuff i CAN track πŸ™‚ (no i dont do all of them but i have over the last year :))

ShellVee:  I have a question…….do you have any amazing pieces of advice on how to cope with bfns month after month, while people around you are announcing pregnancies? Actually, does anyone have advice on this? My close friend told me they are considering inducing her in the next 2 weeks, making her 2-3 weeks early due to her being So sick and in ridiculous amounts of pain! I simply burst into tears in front of her (super lucky she’s an amazing friend and didn’t take it the wrong way, she’s been so supportive of our ttc journey). I felt awful, but I couldn’t stop myself, the emotions were just too overwhelming. Of course, once I got myself together we spoke about it, and I let her be the talker and I listened to her worries, fears, etc. I just felt SO TERRIBLE that I reacted the way I did. πŸ™

AlmostMrsShield:  honestly I have no good advice here. I am the type to start getting teary/crying because everyone at the shops had babies – seriously it usually coincides with AF’s arrival but is very inconvenient – my local coffee shop honestly must think DH and I are having D&Ms all the time because we sit there and I get all teary over it all haha so sad!

That said I do have my good and bad months. This month I didn’t test – I started spotting early AND I just knew we were unsuccessful because of it being a “bad” month for us because of starting testing etc, knew AF was arriving and I didn’t really get upset, actually didn’t faze me at all, I was just peeved because I was spotting for ages. But that’s not an indication for next month – AF could start and I’ll be bawling again I just never know HOW i am going to react.

i guess if you can I think the best thing is to not test until you are late BUT every month I say that and most months I don’t succeed.

A lot of people do the “do something you couldn’t if you were pregnant” and sometimes I’ll have a beer or a wine (Or 3 haha) but it’s not always helpful. I have been trying to get out and about more… Even just for a walk in the local park to break up the routine – not just to combat sadness at TTC/BFNs but to give me something else to focus on all month – weekends are often harder than during the week because I have more time to think.

Haha the last time someone announced their pregnancy to me (their 3rd) I got all blood rushy and the a little while later said “guess this isn’t the time to tell you I’m infertile then?” Ooops mood broken. I feel like a bitch but when she announced and it was followed by a “so how bout you Shell?” It slipped out… So yep happens to all of us at some point I guess. At least you were lucky your friend understands. 

Wow sorry for the novel and all if that with pretty much no helpful advice – go me! I hope it just helps a little to know you are not alone in feeling crappy month after month, bfn after bfn…

AlmostMrsShield:  I’m sorry you had such a tough time.  It’s not easy when it seems like every one and their cousin can just sneeze and be pregnant with healthy babies. I haven’t had to deal with months of BFNs but have had multiple MCs.  You just need to stop comparing yourself to others. It’s not easy and I still struggle everyday but its too painful to keep doing it. Whenever I see a pregnancy announcement I try to imagine myself holding my baby, or announcing my own pregnancy… Like really imagine how happy you’ll be that day and try to convince yourself that day WILL come for you.  Keep your eyes on the prize I guess. It also helps to block every single person of child bearing potential from your Facebook newsfeed πŸ™‚

Hi guys. So I POAS last night at 8DPO – and nothing, BFN!

I was pretty naughty, wanted to see if I was for sure as its St. Patrick’s day weekend, and I wanted a guiness…

I wasn’t really expecting anything (it was an internet cheapy clinicalguard). But now I am all the more curious and set to wait til Monday to test (day AF is due, 12DPO CD28)

BFN – guess I shouldn’t complain it’s just our 2nd cycle trying. Still I thought we caught O day right on the nose. Ugh. Roll over to April. *goes to buy wine and shop for OPKs on amazon*

I just went to the bathroom and (tmi) see I have a small amount of spotting.

I’ve had creamy CM (tmi) since O day, and now its 10DPO and it looks like this could be the onset of AF – due in 2 days, monday… Its more like a brown creamy CM (omg tmi! sorry), but last cycle I had a day of light spotting til AF came in full force.

Grrr. I think 10DPO is a bit too late for implantation bleeding, right?

no_elle:  Brown spotting is generally my indication of AF to be showing up in a few days, so in my book, that would be a bad sign – I’m thinking you’re in the same boat since you had some spotting last cycle…??  FX for you though!!

Update: I had to go to the ER today because the abdominal pain was unbearable. my hcg went from 28 to 55 in less than 48hrs so that’s good and the internal ultrasound showed my uterine lining is thickening and they still see the cyst that’s giving me issues. They saw me in pain during an episode and gave me Vicodin, they said its safe as long as someone isn’t hooked on it (which I’m not) so I’m only going to take it when I get more than one episode within 30 min because at that point I’ve puked so much I feel like I’m dying. I’m relaxing on the couch now trying to deal with the pain. The only good thing is that so far I’m not bleeding or spotting and numbers going up.
