    Please girl, I've been done since August!

    A few more things here and there, but I'm mostly done.

    Wait, it's December, already?!

    I am a scrooge and I'm not getting anyone anything this year.

    Obligatory other!

    I am nine dpo and my temp dropped below my cover line this morning. I usually have a 11 or 12 day luteal phase and I’ve never had my temp drop below the cover line in the middle of the luteal phase in a year of charting. I guess I’ll have to wait and see if this means anything.

    Have been pretty absent this month but tomorrow is CD 29 which I’ll call my official POAS date. That was when I got my BFP last month that ended in CP on Thanksgiving week. This is cycle 7, I’m really frustrated with how long and difficult this has all been, esp with SIL announcing her (omgsurprise!) baby #2 due four days away from what would have been my due date. Her babies will be 15m apart and we’re still waiting. I’ve been POAS all week with BFN’s have been nauseous and sore bb’s just like last months. Stopping charting helped a lot but it’s still just so damn hard. DH keeps reminding me that we are finally exactly where we wanted to be job wise, we both have new jobs starting soon that between the two of us will balance pay increase and flexibility quite nicely : ) a huge relief as my job was very demanding and had a lot of pregnancy hazards associated with it (chemo, radiation, heavy lifting) and he just got a great gig with lots of learn and a big raise…and on top of that, we have a stronger marriage, better financial position and more support than most of the people we know who have gotten pregnant recently, so in a lot of ways we have it better than they do. That helps some. We talk a lot, about everything and I really do see how this (like any difficult time) has brought us closer. Man are we gonna be a good team with a baby. What doesn’t help is friends who ask about how things are going (who have experienced MC themselves) and then say things like just be patient it’ll happen. Well hopefully it will but thats not helpful. 

    Hugs to all of you still waiting and congrats to all the BFP’s. Holding DH close as we wait out the next few days and see if we’re finally there or moving on to Jan, cycle 8.

    HeyJude72:  FX for you sweet girl! I’m currently on CD26 and my AF is due tomorrow (late O + short luteal) not very promising. But tonight I had horrible nausea so hoping that’s a good sign. and ugh, “just be patient it will happen” “it just wasn’t meant to be this time” those comments are the worst ever! We’re currently TTC baby #2 which I thought would be easy but haha nah! It’s way harder than I thought. Not only do we want it so bad, it doesn’t help that everyone I know or see asks when we’re going to have another one. Even strangers! Tonight at dinner perfect strangers asked when my DS was getting a sibling. Seriously? Wtf? Its bad enough that we want it so bad, don’t need the extra pressure. I hope you have a very very sticky baby on your next BFP 🙂

    I’m out girls started my typical pre AF spotting, AF due on Monday. Gutted. One positive is the spotting didn’t start until now, last cycle it started about 5 days before AF and not much cramping like last time so at least my cycle seems normalish again.<br /><br />Also I feel sooooo fat after all the Christmas eating! Going to do a big detox for January. I was really sick this month with a chest infection and have been eating awful since we got married so realistically I don’t feel in top form. Trying to stay positive it was only our second cycle. :-( but still ugh it is emotionally draining

    HeyJude72:  FX extra tight for you. I hate the “be patient” comments. They don’t help at all and just make me mad.  You’ve been patient. You deserve a sticky BFP!

     I think I may have got a bfp. I have tested twice with the pink dye internet cheapies and both times I got a visable second line but im not sure if I should believe them! My husband and I are a bit shocked as we never dreamed that we would get a bfp our first month of trying! I am really hoping that it is a bfp and that it is a sticky baby!
