Re: *:*:Crazy Train*:*:

  • I haven't here in awhile, but the unsuccessful TTC is starting to get to me. This week has been REALLY hard. Two friends had babies and another posted an ultrasound pic. It's just everywhere.

    So, crazy train  updates:

    Your level of crazy on a scale of 1 to 10: 8

    CD and/or DPO: CD 13

    Can I just get pregnant already?!?!

    Signs & Symptoms: Spotting today, which *could mean* ovulation. Maybe. I've been wrong on that lots of times before. I gave up on the stupid O tests because they were just making me panicky.

    Additional crazy here: I thought for sure I was pregnant last month. Aunt Flo was a few days late. I actually got my hopes up, then BAM! Nope.

    I had been doing really well mentally, but that cycle just brought me crashing down. Trying to pick myself up again.

    ((hugs))  I am sorry there are babies everywhere for you right now.  Hopefully the spotting does mean O for you.

    Are you charting by any chance?  if not it could be helpful in figuring out your cycle and to make sure you are ovulating.

  • Oh, yes, I am charting. My cycle has just been nutty since my October loss. I did 7 O tests in December, and every single one of them came back negative - although my chart showed the right pattern for O-ing. So, it was either user error with the tests (I didn't always do a four-hour hold or test midday like it said to), or my body is still trying to figure out how to bounce back.

    My cycle does seem to be leveling out now, though, so I need to be patient. I am short on patience this week, though.

    Your level of crazy on a scale of 1 to 10: 8

    CD and/or DPO: CD14

    Can I just ___have a normal cycle________ already?!?!

    Signs & Symptoms: My chart was so pretty the first 10 days or so, I thought I was finally going to get a normal, clear cycle with plenty of BDing and a big temp shift, and then I got sick over the weekend (temp was over 100 on Sat), and it went back down Sunday but now it's looking like my post-O temps even though I highly doubt I've O'd yet.

    Additional crazy here: **pg mentioned, not mine** I just found out another person on my FB list is pregnant with twins around the same time I was supposed to be due, and I can't help but be resentful that it should be ME making that announcement that I'm having twins and having those cravings and seeing that picture in the ultrasound. For some reason this one hits me worse, because this person is also hugely successful in getting their writing published and interviews and essays and stories all over respected journals, and honestly? Ok I'll say it, I'm jealous. We both graduated at the same time, she's younger,  she's got success in her writing career AND is expecting twins at the same time I was supposed to be having them. It just sucks. Why do some people get EVERYTHING in life? // end whiny rant here. //

    Can I just ___________ already?!?! Know how this cycle turns out??

    Signs & Symptoms: Tiny temp increase this morning, super sore boobs, creamy CM

    Additional crazy here: DH had to get up early for work, so I temped 30 minutes earlier than usual. I know that's not a lot, but between that and getting to the end of my LP, I was mentally gearing for a bit of a temp dip this morning. I was so surprised when it was slightly up... so I POAS'd ::hangs head in shame:: Of course, it was negative. All of my "symptoms" are well with in the range of normal for me for the 2ww. Sigh.

    I would've done the same thing. You're 11dpo so I think POAS is totally allowed. Sorry for the BFN. ((hugs))

    That is good that it seems to be leveling out.  And I hear you on the patience, I am feeling pretty stabby today.

    I'm so sorry that happened to you & you have to watch someone else get to make that announcement that you should have been able to do. I know how that feels and my heart breaks for you today. I would just block her posts on fb so you hopefully don't have to see them again & re-live that pain.

    Hope your day gets better.

    You could discard the two higher fever temps.  I have that in my chart this month too, I discarded the highest.  For the rest ((hugs)).  It is perfectly normal to feel jealous.

  • This is awesome.

    Your level of crazy on a scale of 1 to 10:  9+  Tongue Tied

     

    CD and/or DPO:   CD 25

     

    Can I just ___________ already?!?!

     

    Signs & Symptoms:  Oh man, let my crazy begin.  For the past week, I've had vivid dreams every time I sleep.  Last week my breasts were incredibly sore and my sense of smell was ridiculous.  I've been tired (probably from lack of a good night's sleep from the dreams.)  I usually have PMS really bad starting about a week before my period, but this week I've been pretty even-keeled.  And I *always* break out horribly on my chin thanks to PMS, but so far so good - super clear skin.

    I went to Dollar Tree and bought three more tests.  I am crazy.  I am going to try to hold off till Friday.

     

    Additional crazy here: I've POAS three times already.   Hmm  This is only my first cycle.  Cray-zay.


  • Oh gooood.....I needed the Crazy Train today!!

    Your level of crazy on a scale of 1 to 10:  on my way down from a 10....

    CD and/or DPO:  CD34/12DPO

    Can I just __get AF and move on___ already?!?!

    Signs & Symptoms: I was so hopeful this cycle!! My chart looked exactly how it did with my first BFP!  Temp dip, cream CM....got a BFN today though, so I'm ruling it out I think for this time around.

    Additional crazy here:   Aside from TTC, I had a severe flare-up with the herniated discs in my back.  I was put on meds Thursday evening to try and cope with the pain until I can get an MRI.  I showed up for the MRI on Sunday and they told me I should wait since I was in my 2WW...so here I am, waiting until AF gets here so I can go get this show on the road!  I guess the only positive out of my negative is that I can do what is necessary to take care of this back pain :o

    Your level of crazy on a scale of 1 to 10: 8

    CD and/or DPO: CD14

    Can I just ___have a normal cycle________ already?!?!

    Signs & Symptoms: My chart was so pretty the first 10 days or so, I thought I was finally going to get a normal, clear cycle with plenty of BDing and a big temp shift, and then I got sick over the weekend (temp was over 100 on Sat), and it went back down Sunday but now it's looking like my post-O temps even though I highly doubt I've O'd yet.

    Additional crazy here: **pg mentioned, not mine** I just found out another person on my FB list is pregnant with twins around the same time I was supposed to be due, and I can't help but be resentful that it should be ME making that announcement that I'm having twins and having those cravings and seeing that picture in the ultrasound. For some reason this one hits me worse, because this person is also hugely successful in getting their writing published and interviews and essays and stories all over respected journals, and honestly? Ok I'll say it, I'm jealous. We both graduated at the same time, she's younger,  she's got success in her writing career AND is expecting twins at the same time I was supposed to be having them. It just sucks. Why do some people get EVERYTHING in life? // end whiny rant here. //

    My Chart

     

    You could discard the two higher fever temps.  I have that in my chart this month too, I discarded the highest.  For the rest ((hugs)).  It is perfectly normal to feel jealous.

    Thanks for responding! You're so sweet. FF already 'discarded' my highest temp on Sat because apparently it's too high to even show on the chart, ha. I had that thought too, I just want to see what the next few days bring before I throw out all my temps. I don't even know why I care what the chart looks like, both times I got BFPs I had terrible looking charts. I think I just wanted one thing that I could control.

    I'm so sorry that happened to you & you have to watch someone else get to make that announcement that you should have been able to do. I know how that feels and my heart breaks for you today. I would just block her posts on fb so you hopefully don't have to see them again & re-live that pain.

    Hope your day gets better. 

    Thanks Amanda! I'm blocking her - it just hurt cause she's the second person I've had to block because they're expecting twins this summer. Is there something in the water? (If so, I want it!) At this rate the only people left on my FB are going to be my angsty teenage cousins. Haha.

    Sorry about the BFN.  i hate when my chart looks so promising and I get disappointed.  Silver lining though that once af shows you can get the MRI.

    This is awesome.

    Your level of crazy on a scale of 1 to 10:  9+  Tongue Tied

     

    CD and/or DPO:   CD 25

     

    Can I just ___________ already?!?!

     

    Signs & Symptoms:  Oh man, let my crazy begin.  For the past week, I've had vivid dreams every time I sleep.  Last week my breasts were incredibly sore and my sense of smell was ridiculous.  I've been tired (probably from lack of a good night's sleep from the dreams.)  I usually have PMS really bad starting about a week before my period, but this week I've been pretty even-keeled.  And I *always* break out horribly on my chin thanks to PMS, but so far so good - super clear skin.

    I went to Dollar Tree and bought three more tests.  I am crazy.  I am going to try to hold off till Friday.

     

    Additional crazy here: I've POAS three times already.   Hmm  This is only my first cycle.  Cray-zay.


    Step away from the pee sticks for a couple of days lady!  you are only 9dpo and setting yourself up for disappointment.  Wait a couple more days then test again.  I hope the lack of pms symptoms is a good thing!

    Can I just __know what my body is planning to do this month_________ already?!?!

    Signs & Symptoms: I have not had any O symptoms for days now.

    Additional crazy here:  My chart last month looked perfect. My chart this month is all over the place. I also got my Smile really early this cycle. I had a pap on Monday and had my Dr look at my chart and even she thought it was weird. I am only on CD16 but I am way far away from my surge. I dont think I O'ed this month.....pooo!!!

  • Your level of crazy on a scale of 1 to 10: 8

    I know, I'm crazy. :)

    I do think I O'ed earlier than CD 14....but completely lack any sort of proof since I do not chart.

    ETA:  Or, errrmm, CD 16.  I can do math.  :)

    Huh.  Well, I don't think that you have O'd yet either, even with that +opk.  Keep bding though, could just be a late O.  I have had up to cd30 O, though normally it is between cd17-21.  Good luck!
