@wandering_gypsy:  Ah gotcha! Glad I didn’t come off as a downer. πŸ˜‰ Just didn’t want your hopes up too soon. When is AF due for you? You’re 11 DPO right? There’s still time!

@wandering_gypsy:  I would test again tomorrow with your first pee just to be sure. my first squinter was the same thing….  that I got a little frustrated and threw it in the trash pretty much right away after seeing it was negative but then went back twenty minutes later…went through the trash because of something I read… and there was a faint faint line. The next morning I got my positive. I say it really depends on the test, and although you shouldn’t get your hopes up , you shoudn’t rule it out either. πŸ™‚ good luck!

@CocoLoco523:  AF is due Sun. So yea, there’s still time and I haven’t had my usual spotting (I usually start spotting around CD10/11) yet so I’m “hopeful” but trying to not get my hopes up too much, I had a really hard time coping last cycle (and we barely tried last cycle we were too busy!! lol).

@wandering_gypsy:  possibly yes. Im not charting yet. But this is cycle number 10 were rolling into so I should start for sure. My cycle is apparently 30 days this month and usually im closer to 28. But my predicted ovulation day was sept 2 so we did BD the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th. Then I went on a mini vaca with my mom for a week starting the 5th. I just ordered a 50 internet pregnancy test strips and 50 opks since theyre so cheap.. hopefully that will help πŸ™

 Ive also had period cramps for the last 3 days. I almost always wake up with my period (I rarely get it during the day). And I took a test at 7DPO and i thought I had a squinter. But I continue to get negatives at 16DPO.

 

 I need a bottle of wine.

@Brittanyg20:  charting has helped me a TON!  I have ovulated late every other month since we started TTC, we have also been travelling so I don’t know if O was late from that or just how my cycle is, but I wouldn’t have known that without charting and would be a whole lot more concerned by not being pregnant yet, since late O meant we didn’t get good timing in my FW I knew when to get my hopes up and when it was a long shot.  I really recommend it, but OPKs will help a lot too!  I got a whole bunch from amazon, they are a great deal!

@wandering_gypsy:  My LP ranges from 8-11 days.  So looking forward to your testing updates!! FX for you!!

Super nervous about testing tomorrow.  When I tested rediculously early it was easy to tell myself that a BFN was no big deal because it was impossible to get a BFP that early.  As the days go by I know it will get harder to accept that the BFN are correct and AF is coming.

I have a good friend (was a bridesmaid) who doesn’t know we’ve been ttc for three months and when I didn’t get a drink with dinner she said “are you guys pregnant or trying?” and I said “no not really” and she goes “oh ok I mean yea if you had been trying and weren’t yet you might be barren! haha” I’m not sure why she thought that was funny πŸ™ DH wasn’t pleased but obviously she doesn’t know so I can’t hold it against her but it was like she kicked me in the stomach πŸ™

@CityBearBride:  Ah, thanks so much. You’re very good! 

I think it’s hard no matter how longyou’re trying. I certainly thought it would happen straight away. Fx for you.

@MrsRichard:  Wow! That is so insensitive. I hope she doesn’t have kids yet and doesn’t understand how hard TTC is! Most of my friends have kids so, in general, no insensitive comments. Usually it comes from someone who doesn’t understand. I’m sure she meantnothing by it.

Oh, and, in Ireland it’s impossible to go out and not drink without someone making a comment about it. Very annoying! As if it’s anyone else’s business if we drink!

@phoebephoebo:  She doesn’t have children, it was so awkward because we were at dinner with a guy she just started dating who also happened to work for DH last year. So I’m thinking uh don’t bring that up in front of this random guy and I’m sure DH felt uncomfortable as well since he already thought it was strange to see this guy outside of work lol oh well! We were at a German restaurant where everyone gets these huge beers, so I suppose I stuck out! I’m sorry to hear about your disappointment as well. All this time we hear it only takes one time and now that we’re trying it’s just not working that way πŸ™ FX for both of us
