No update here – CD 13 but no positive OPK yet.  Historically have longer cycles, so I could get one as late as CD 22.  So, still in the pre-TWW period.  I’ve decided it’s less fun than the TWW!

I’m back after taking a much needed month off from the boards.  (Hi @winniewolf:  ;))  I’m currently 11dpo on month 6, and I have a feeling, I’ll be moving on to month 7 by weeks’ end.  I had bleeding while BD at 9dpo, cried my eyes out, but have been totally clear since.  I looked at my last 5 months and for 4 of them, I started spotting at 9dpo which never stopped and turned into AF.  That day I made an appt with a new Ob/gyn who specializes in RE, so I feel good about that.  My original doc (before I moved) said to come in after 6 months of not conceiving because I have a history of some irregular periods.  While I was feeling pretty devastated, I’m happy to be taking some steps forward and getting more professional attention.

Wow…Part II, how exciting!  I waiting for O here.  DH and I are getting working on getting extra busy this month ; ).  Feeling good, but no specific reason to have more or less hope than any other month.

I am at the end of cycle 2 of actively TTC.  10 DPO.  – HPT this morning.  I am still holding out hope – FF tells me that only 31% of pregnant charts show a + HPT at 10 DPO (or is that just really grasping at straws?) – because we had really good timing this month, but … seeing the BFN this morning was really depressing.

Huge shout-outs to those of you who have been trying for much longer.  I have so much respect for your strength and will to keep going.  This is a hard.  Much, much harder than I expected.  (I come from the most fertile family ever.  Seriously.)

I’m on my tenth month. CD 30 and waiting for af! If I’m not pregnant (I have no doubt) i’m going to start charting so I know what’s going on!

Next week my Darling Husband is going in for his little test;) and then I’m going to make an appointment for myself…

Good luck, ladies! Hoping to have a lot of bfp announcements this month!

@Mrs Green Grass:   It is going to be a good month!  I feel it!

 

@septcabride:  Oh I hear you!  It is very hard.  We all just have to stick together and vent here if needed.   I’ve found the bee to be my comfort zone when things get tough.

Update here:

Still waiting for AF here.  Officially 1 week late.  Took pg test and still negative.  I will be POAS tomorrow morning.  If I get a bfn, I will probably be making a visit to the Doctor.

@Fire:  thank you!  I love having this space to laugh, cry, and vent.  Our first month TTC I told my husband everything and it was not good.  He was stressed, I was stressed, there were “issues.”  So now I just go about my business and everything is much better, but it is still hard to deal with the roller coaster of emotions associated with this process (which pretty much happens in secret).

Good luck with the stick tomorrow!

may I join you ladies???

we’re still very new to TCC. with AF arriving on Sunday, I started charting this week. i find it very interesting how much you learn about your body… tststs… almost 30 and still don’t have a clue what is going on down there…

unfortunatelly this month right around our best days, we’ll have friends staying at our place… ALL THE TIME… so AF is already waiting for me at the end of the month.

@septcabride: last months was our first month of TCC and same as you, I told my husband everthing… and I agree, it was not good…

SENDING BABY DUST TO ALL OF YOU!!!

@septca and other newcomers – welcome!  I’ve been at this since January and still trying to find the happy medium of what and when to share with my husband.  It’s not that we aren’t open with each other…it’s just that I do find that it confuses him to know every little detail.  I.E., I think I’m pregnant, I don’t think I’m pregnant, I think I’m ovulating, I don’t think I’m ovulating, I don’t know when I’m ovulating, I think we should DTD tonight…you get the picture. 

Now, I try to just tell him the week or so that I think we should be intimate more frequently (pre-O) and then I tell him if I’m late or if I’ve taken a test.  That way, he’ll be prepared for the news if I’m pregnant.  I know that I still overshare with him, though.

I do all of my other obsessing on these boards : )
