@jaguar:  You can make it to the 10th. I waited for my beta, it wasn’t easy but I made it. I almost caved the day before.

BFN for me this morning at 12DPO. A little sad but trying to not let it get to me since we didn’t really plan on trying until the fall. Guess it wasn’t meant to be. Crappy way to start the weekend. πŸ™

@StaceyA:  It could still be early!  But yeah, I know how disappointing that can be, that stark white test staring at you. Ugh.  It sure doesn’t make it easy to stay optimistic.  I’ll have my FX crossed for you!

AF is officially one day late – I don’t have any tests on hand since I was so sure she was going to be here yesterday. I don’t want to be a symptom spotter but are crazy dreams a symptom? I’ve never been a dreamer but I’m waking up several times a night because I’ve been having dreams that seem SO real… or to pee. Gonna hold it for a few hours and test this afternoon with a pink dye. Expecting a BFN but we’ll see.

@knittylady:  Thanks love πŸ™‚ It was definitely stark white… no hint of colour anywhere. I don’t feel any different so assuming it’s just time to wait for AF. *sigh*. Oh well. Maybe next month.

@MrsFarmer:  We’re very close to being buddies! I’m 5DPO and AF is due on May 12th.  I’m not sure I can stand this – we “pulled the goalie” in December but it took this long for my cycles to get regular after the BCP – so this is probably our first real go-round.

@iRun2004:  Good luck!  Do you think you’ll be able to hold out until the 12th??  I’m hoping I can, because in the rural area where I live, pregnancy tests are ridiculously expensive (like $20 for a box of 2) so I try not to wasteful.  That’s an expensive pee stick!!

@jaguar:  I can’t imagine how excruciating your TWW must be!  To be honest, I don’t blame you one smidge if you cave early. πŸ˜‰

@MrsFarmer:  A good question. And a bit more complicated by the fact that my parents are staying with us the evening of the 11th through the 13th.  I think I may end up testing on Friday morning the 11th (a day early) because on the nuts chance that this actually worked, I would like to be able to celebrate privately with DH before my parents are in the house.

That said, it’s going to be hard even waiting for that. I’m so impressed by all of you who have been dealing with this for so many months.

@iRun2004:  Oh I would be tempted to test early in your case for sure!  I don’t blame you for wanting that moment with your DH alone if it happens to be a BFP (or even if its a disappointing BFN).  I’m thinking I will *probably* break down early too since I have one tempting Internet cheapie at home…but we’ll see!

Some months are harder than others…The WB ladies on the 6+ TTC thread are amazing support and they really understand the frustration and hardship of trying for so many months. I honestly don’t know what I would do without them!

So I promise I’m not reading too much into this, but two nights ago I had a dream that I got a BFP.  I was SO excited and just truly filled with joy.  In real life, if I am pregnant this month, my EDD would be around January 17th.  That date is a little stressful just due to work issues, but I would obviously be thrilled.  In my dream, I wasn’t the least bit stressed and even said “I don’t care that the due date is January 13th–I’m just so happy!”  It felt good to feel that even if it was a dream.

Then, last night my left boob started hurting (like throbbing pain to the nipple).  I had a dream last night that I picked up a baby (not mine) and it started trying to nurse through my shirt.  For some reason, I let it and it really hurt my left boob!  Surely this was caused by my real life pains, but I thought it was funny to have such specific baby dreams two nights in a row.  I haven’t had baby dreams since TTC and I dream all the time.

I hate to be a downer, but a friend of mine passed away from cancer on Wednesday night.  I grew up with her (our families are good friends).  She was only 27.  It was just a good shift of perspective for me.  Yes, TTC can be hard and stressful and heartbreaking, but I’m just SO THANKFUL to be able to even try, ya know?  She’ll never get that opportunity.  She never got married and never had a child.  She was full of light and laughter and was a great example of living life.  Anyway, the reason I share is that for me, personally, it was just a good reminder to step back and be thankful for the many gifts each day brings.

@cafegirl:  I’m so sorry about your friend. I’ve had a few good friends die young, and it’s so sad and unfair. I definitely agree though, that it is always good to remind ourselves of how fortunate we are. Stepping back to see the big picture is really important.

BFN at 11DPO – couldn’t have been whiter if i’d dipped it in a tin of ceiling paint

a couple of hours feeling sorry for myself, and getting grumpy with hubby for not knowing how to ‘deal’ with me

then a bright red hello from AF (which is odd, coz usually i get brown spotting for a day or two before my period really starts, and last month THAT didn’t start til 12DPO)

not only bad news, but a waste of a freaking stick

FFS πŸ™

 

  @cafegirl:  so sorry for your loss, and thanks for th re-focus of perspective – i needed it today.

Good luck everyone else!

I may be a crazy person, but I think I’m going to pee fairly regularly on sticks. If this IVF isn’t going to work, I’m going to be prepared by getting negatives gradually – rather than hold out hope until the 10th, and be disappointed. Maybe it’s backwards logic, but I think it’ll help me come to terms. 

So…

5dp3dt (8dpo) = BFN.
