Re: TWW May 23 - 29!

  • CD 28 and 15ish DPO. Yikes! I'm over thinking every twinge and trying to analyze "Is that AF cramps or just cramps?" I'll test if AF doesn't make an appearance tomorrow. SO hoping this is THE month but also preparing myself for another month of hoping. Why does the TWW last so long?!

    I am 7dpo and will likely test at 10dpo. I have been doing yoga 4-5 days a week just to keep myself as zen as possible during this process. Yoga helped me a lot during my chemical pregnancy and so I've been devoted to it ever since. Also, do not feel PG at all this cycle. Not even a little bit.

    @poemasque so bummed to hear that. Hope you're staying positive and treating yourself to something special. That vicious cycle of TTC-waiting-then-disappointment is physically and mentally exhausting!
  • I'm so sorry @PoeMasque.  I had the same experience after my HSG - I usually spot for several days prior and didn't have any this past time and thought that was a sign...but I think it's because we had an HSG and they cleaned the uterus...so no old blood coming out, which I understand is what that spotting usually is right before the real deal.  Here's to staying positive and hopeful that our BFP's are just around the corner!!!

  • Thanks ladies, this one was hard....the lack of spotting (and the fact that so many ladies here got a BFP after their HSG) really had my hopes up. But, I'll be over it by the time O week is here again. :) 

    @jennh75b here's to hoping our uteri, still clean and sparkly, work some magic next time!

    Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that @ahrains.  *hugs* Wishing you lots of luck this next cycle!!!

    @PoeMasque - someone (I can't remember their name) who has posted a few times here said they got their BFP two months after the HSG, so there is still plenty of hope!!!  Maybe our sparkly clean uteri were too clean and nothing could stick?  I just need to get myself healed from this yeast infection or I'm going to miss this month.  :(  I've never had sex during a yeast infection and I can't imagine I'm going to start now.

  • @ahrains oh no!! I really thought this was the month for you too :( 

    maybe the universe is just waiting to surprise the three of us with BFPs next month since we are all on a similar schedule :) 

    @jennh75b I'm actually thinking of going in to get tested for everything, just in case (was tested right before I met my SO, but you never know...). Especially since I've had yeast infections and not had symptoms before, wondering if maybe an undiagnosed BV or something may be hindering us? Who knows!

  • @PoeMasque - I get them very rarely, maybe once every couple of years.  But how did you know you had a yeast infection if you had no symptoms?  I have never had mine confirmed, but the signs are pretty classic and they always go away with monistat, so I've never gone to a doc for them.

  • @jennh75b during an annual visit I was told I had one, but I'd had no itching or odor or a thing unusual (I worked as a lifeguard then and was in the pool a lot). Since then, If I even get a twinge of itching down there I slather on plain yogurt and it goes away right away. I've never had odor, discharge, etc....so I'm always nervous that I have one and don't know! Haha

  • Ha ha ha @Vastra we're not really Doctor Who fans, but they added it on the little British pub we had our reception at in New Orleans...The Crown and Anchor in Algiers point (we got married at the courthouse then walked over there-too small for food so we had a grilled cheese food truck parked outside for the 25 people there). If you are ever in NOLA you should check it out! :-)
