@Yellow.Clover:  Yes, frustrated. I’ll test tomorrow am just to be sure that I’m not preggo, haha. Fertility Friend gave me dotted crosshairs at CD50 (I’m CD68 now), and my bloodwork 6 days later showed I’d O’d. So hopefully either I’m KU or AF is on the way!

@gingersnap25:  Best of luck! I’m praying everything goes super well with your injections and scans!

@MrsJaguar – everything is crossed for you this cycle, lady. Thoughts and prayers with you – I can’t imagine the hope and frustration that are hung up on things turning out well. You are so strong – you amaze me!

To everyone else that needs hope and encouragement today – just know that you are in my prayers. You are all unique and special, and deserve good things.

Hey you guys! I’m at work, so I won’t write to everyone individually, but wanted to say a HUGE big thank you to everyone for being so amazing, as usual. I had a big meltdown last night, lots of hubby cuddles, sweet messages from friends who knew I was struggling.. and I feel like a bit of a sook. πŸ˜‰

Honestly, I think @SapphireSun: nailed it – I’m doing everything in my power to tell myself it won’t work again, probably. Why? I suppose so that it doesn’t hurt, yes. But also so that I’m mentally prepared to continue being NOT pregnant in the coming months, too. I thought I’d be pregnant by the time 2011 finished, I really hoped Clomid would do the trick. Then I thought I’d be pregnant by our anniversary. Now, there’s a part of me that’s hoping we’ll be pregnant by the time 2012 comes around, and this is dangerous. I don’t want to be holding to that hope, you know?

Anyway… we’ll be ok. I’ll be ok! And I’m sorry if I’ve been a bit ME ME ME lately, I’ll snap out of it soon. Double jabs from tomorrow, let the stimming begin! That’s exciting, at least. πŸ™‚

@Mrs. Jaguar:  I personally think it works better that way (being negative to protect yourself). Good luck with stimming.  You’ve got tons of people being positive for you even if you can’t!!

@JaneyD:  I suppose it’s a defense mechanism. And, let’s face it – I’ve never been one for getting lucky with odds!!!

@ieatunicorns:  Thank you so much. I felt stronger months ago, now I feel just kind of beaten. Not a good feeling, but I know it always comes in waves when you’re TTC. x

@Yellow.Clover:  Thanks, and I hope you never need them either! What are you doing different this cycle, if I may ask?  I completely am with you on testing, I never test until I am late.

@redsmarties:  Thanks, girlfriend, I apprecaite that!  I am keeping my eye on you, you must be frustrated, but I am keeping things crossed for you πŸ™‚

I started the injections last night, I have to take two each night, and I was a nervous wreck.  I decided to have my husband do them because I don’t think I would have been able to pull it off.  He did a great job and I am glad I relinquished control.  The Follistim was a walk in the park, the Menopur…not so much.  It burned/hurt and I was not at all prepared for that!  It only hurt for a minute or so, but it sucked.  I am not a fan, at all πŸ™

@gingersnap25:  Started Clomid. 50 mg. I know it’s not much but there was a part of me so excited thinking, this can be it!  – I’m sorry about the pain from the Menopur. But excited for you!

Today is just not a good day ladies. Me and hubby have been fighting since Monday nite and this morning was a big blow up. I’ve been crying my eyes out ever since and I know damn hormones make it 10x’s worse but ugh. Not fun. Plus I slept horribly last nite tossing and turning and I think my mind was running about 100 mph and all I remember thinking about was TTC and these damn OPK’s. I think I’m about done. I think I need a break from it all! I’m about to throw in the towel and I feel soo soo ashamed becuase I have not gone through even the slightest of what most of you ladies have and I just don’t know how you do it.

@Yellow.Clover:  {{{HUGS}}}  I am so very sorry you are having such a craptastic day…  I completley know the wanting to quit feeling all to well.  In fact, I stopped temping in order to get rid of some of the crazies.  It did help to take that little step back.  There is nothing at all to be ashamed of, this process is really trying and everyone’s journey is completely different.  If you need to take a step back, do it.  The most important piece of advice I can give is to make sure you take care of yourself and your relationship, after all, you are both in this together.  And, of course, we are always here for you too.  Stay strong and try and pamper yourself today.

@gingersnap25:  Thank you lady, you’re so kind! I know, I need to focus on our relationship right now, because without that – we shouldn’t be TTC. And I do know we are in this together, but sometimes I feel so alone when it comes to talking to him about it. I mean he’s 100% on board with TTC and he wants this badly too. But, I feel like, he doesn’t understand what I’m going through. But then again, maybe I don’t understand what he’s going through either. I think tonigh we will have a BIG talk and let it all out. I think I’m going to log off WB and stay away at least for a day. I need to clear my mind of this obsessing to become pregnant. But, thanks again, I’m glad I came back to check this before I logged off, you have made me feel a little better. : )

@Yellow.Clover:  *hugs* I think most of us have been where you are at some point! TTC is so stressful for even a strong relationship. Sometimes just taking a cycle or two off can be enough to clear both your heads and get things back on track.

@gingersnap25:  So excited for you to start injectables! I will need to hear all about it to prep for my injects cycle next month. πŸ™‚

@Mrs. Jaguar:  You know how much I want this for you. I know it is hard to keep going. It feels like we’re trying to drag ourselves back from depression by our bootstraps sometimes, doesn’t it?

@SapphireSun:  Did you have a good day playing hooky?

I’m CD14 and still waiting for O. My CM is getting closer, but isn’t quite right for it yet. And my right ovary is hurting like a mother! OUCH. Righty always gives me trouble. How is everyone else doing today?

@Yellow.Clover:  HUGS! We have taken a couple months off because the emotions got too much for me.  I stopped checking boards and took a FB break because fo a lot of TTC/Pregnancy chatter on FB.  It really helped me get through a real rough patch.  It also helps with the hubs to have him ubber involved. He takes my temp and inputs it into FF every morning. I tell him my observations and he tracks those for me too. We discuss all my supplements, why I am taking them, etc. This has really helped me from feeling like i was “doing it all” and truthfully it was really hurting him that I was trying to “do it all” myself and not giving him an opportunity to share the burden. 

Good luck with your conversation with your husband tonight.  The journey can be rough, be kind to each other. HUGS!

@bunny:  Absolutely.  Matt couldnt believe how easy it was to get a nice big spot on the beach to lay out our blanket. Ummm it’s noon on a Tuesday.  Then we went to a little farmer’s market an got some delicious looking fruit and veggies and went for dinner. AF is finally back for what seems to be for real this time so I had a few glasses of patio wine with my pizza. Yum yum.  And now today I’m back at work unfortunately. But at least it feels like a Monday but is actually Wednesday which is pretty good.

@gingersnap25:  Hey my double injection friend. Wishing you lots of luck and non-stingy needles over the next few days. πŸ™‚

@Yellow.Clover:  Oh lovely, do we have our moments? YES. We’ve all been there, and it’s a rough place to be. You want to keep going, because you want it so bad. But you want/need to stop, to give yourself a break. But having a break, means you want to keep going… oy, the drama. Look after yourself & hubs. Many people won’t know just how draining this can be on a marriage.

@bunny:  Sounds like all is on the right track – your ovary better get working, I expect a nice clear ovulation from you this cycle, ya hear? I’ve been walking on the ledge for the last week or so. Hoping to teeter back to the ‘sane’ side soon.

@Mrs. Pretzel:  I’m hoping this cycle does great things for you guys. I love that hubs helps you input your data. So sweet. πŸ™‚

@SapphireSun:  I’m glad (??) AF is back, at least to be over with officially. I wish mine would stop dragging on & clear out. I’m DONE with you, period.
