Well AF turned up for me on wednesday the little witch. We were both a little disappointed,especially with AF being nearly a week late,but now Im just ready to get started on next cycle, and move on. We have both agreed that because we have been NTNTC for over 12 months,and were now TTC,if nothing happens by April 2012 we will be going to the docs to get a bit of extra help and find out if we have any problems.
yup,Im sure it s form of specifically designed torture,just for us ladies! When I got a BFP I just couldnt wait for AF to start so we could try again,but of course sods law,AF was a week late!grrr

Yeah, we had friends that went to a party prepare with a beer filled with water for his newly preggo wife. It was too soon to let everyone know she was pregnant, so they just faked it! We actually hung out at their house one night, and she kept an open beer in front of her and we never even noticed she wasn’t drinking it! Sooo…I can totally pretend, too! I’d much prefer to play that game than get another BFN this cycle!
This is my deciding cycle…no luck, then I’m calling my doc. At my last appointment in August (just the regular annual), I mentioned we went off the pill in May and were now activitely trying. (At the time we just returned from our honeymoon and I was CONVINCED I was already preggo) Sooo…when she told me to call her if I’m not pregnant by Christmas, I thought she was nuts! Ugh…and here we are. So yeah, fingers are tightly crossed this month!

17DPO, temps went down by 0.3. No where near my CL, but I’m discouraged. BFNs all around. DH is still convinced I’m pregnant but I’m not. Kinda just want AF to come so I can start over next cycle.
Sorry to be a debbie downer. Maybe I’ll feel a little better later. I’ve been weepy for the past 2 days for no reason. I mean, I cried over a jewelry box yesterday. Nothing special, didn’t lose it. I cried over considering buying it. Really. Thank goodness DH’s hugs are the best, because I need a bunch of them right now.

Update! AF is here. I’m actually relieved because I felt like a crazy person the last few days. (Must have been PMS!) On to the next cycle! Hope you ladies get your BFP soon! And @Jaguar – O already! 🙂

Sorry about AF showing up!
Honey, I’m so sorry the Clomid isn’t working it’s magic and your cycle is once again dragging on! Good news is, you have a RE appointment coming up so you can change tactics 🙂

My fellow ladies in TWW limbo, fingers crossed for BFPs all around!!!
OPKs can be pretty annoying, they require lots of interpretation and when you want to O that can cloud your reading…I hope you O soon though!

Thanks. I’m actually happy that AF showed because – like I said before – I was becoming a crazy person. I think this upcoming cycle, I’m going to temp because I like to see what my body is up to… but we’re going to BD with Preseed maybe every other day from CD 8-9 to CD 17-18. DH is happy about that forecast! No OPKs, no squinting at lines that aren’t there, no symptom spotting (I’ll try my best!). The holidays are my favorite time of year, so maybe we’ll get a Christmas miracle 🙂

I’m having my regular pre-period spotting today (13 DPO), so AF is coming today or tomorrow. We have some decisions to make now. If we get treatment, we could be getting our BFP on Christmas!

I’m sorry about AF!
It’s still early – give it time! ) 🙂
Well, at least you can see her and get aggressive! And yes… the pre-filled beer/wine glass is a perfect idea! Love it!
Oh NO! But your perfect chart! *shakes fist* I’m sorry that AF has arrived. And thanks.. but no sign yet. Again.
Effing long cycles can kiss my patootie. Thanks, though. Bring on Wednesday so I can cry my ass off in front of the poor guy.
Oh, well DAMN. I’m sorry B. Go aggressive. I want you to get a Christmas BFP.
As for me, well, I think I’m out for 2011 altogether. If this IS another annovulatory cycle, that means that I can request (and hopefully he’ll let me!) to go on progesterone for another 10 days to start my period. THEN it’s starting over… so yeah, I’m pretty much out this year. *head desk*

I’m officially counting my TWW as starting today. Today was the last “high” day on the CBEFM after two peaks. My period has been so flighty (29, 31, 29, 32) that I don’t really know what day to expect it to arrive this month. 32 days means it comes 15 from today, so I guess I’ll try not to test until December 12. That seems so far away but at least I’m super-swamped at work. No time to really think about it. I’m even in the office right now and I came in a few hours on Friday and Saturday too.

I’m here at CD11 enjoying the fun part of TTC. I’ve had some awesome EWCM the past few days to the point of not needing external lubrication during the funtimes. This is the first cycle where I’ve really noticed it and we put it to good use. Otherwise, just focused on working out more and trying to have fun during the TTC process.

Ohhh man. I don’t know what’s going on now. I had boatloads (BOATLOADS) of creamy CM today, and pregnancy symptoms started up again. I can barely type this I’m so nauseous.
I don’t even want to type out where my mind is going with this. Here I am waiting to miscarry and start bleeding and now my mind is going a mile a minute. Could I have conceived much MUCH later than I originally thought, and when we did bloodwork my HCG was only at a 12 because my pregnancy was brand new?
I have no sign of bleeding or even cramping and I don’t have more bloodwork until Thursday. I don’t want to get my hopes up but it’s just odd that the missing pregnancy symptoms which had disappeared are now back in full force.
This is one stressful, crazy, cruel, wacky situation.

After the longest wait of my life for my first AF after coming off BC, I had a 38 day cycle and got it on Thanksgiving day. I’m just starting to temp and waiting for my fertile days hoping for a successful cycle? It’s our first so I’m not going to get my hopes, but will definitely have fun trying! Good baby juju to those trying as well!
Post # 29
thanks 🙂 I know it’s still really early but I was hoping I’d be one of the lucky few that find out early. I’m still hopeful though.

I can’t imagine how much of a mind f*ck this all is. Fingers crossed and sending positive thoughts for good news on Thursday.

Well, I can’t really stay away from everyone that long. 🙂
I just had my 11th, yes, you read that right, 11th day of high fertility on my CBEFM. Now, last month it worked out beautifully. I had a peak day, everything. What I’m thinking now is that every other month is turning out to be annovulatory. It is sucky. Now the positive side of me is thinking maybe I’ll ovuluate really late this month–like latest I’ve ever ovuluated–but it would be cool because Hubby comes home tomorrow night. Who knows!!!! It’s CD21 and for all I know tomorrow will be low.
I’m thinking I’ll use the CBEFM again next month, no temping again, and then just wait and see what happens. I have my yearly appt with my doc in january, so if all else fails, I’ll talk with him then. Now, the only worry that I face is that we may need medical intervention and if we do, the insurance I’m on doesn’t support fertility stuff. So, I don’t know if my doc will help me out since he is an old family friend, I’ll just have to pay out of pocket or what.
i’m soooooo sorry that your body is just messing with your mind. It’s like, let me know either way, but stop giving me mixed signals. I’m hoping you conceived later and it’s now making it’s presence known! Look at ColeB and how her chart was so wacky—like conceived on CD9 and implanted on CD20 or something like that.
