  • I'm still in at an early 7 dpo. I have a 11-13 day LP so I'm debating testing this Sat (10 dpo) to see if I can have a drink or not over the weekend (I've been abstaining this tww) or just wait till when AF is supposed to come. I got my only positive last time at 11 dpo. The struggle is real.

    Hi ladies. I'll have to go back and read to catch up, but wanted to pop over here. I'm coming off my second loss in 6 months. I had a natural m/c at 6 weeks. I'm currently 4 DPO according to FF (although i feel like I ovulated on Monday, so only 2 DPO). I know many don't get pregnant immediately following loss, but my body seems to be doing things right on track, so far as ovulation goes. I'm super encouraged and hopeful, while still tying to remain realistic. 

    Looking forward to seeing some BFPs here in the next few weeks.

  • Ugh still no AF - expected today or possibly tmrw so it is technically not late. I have had cramps, sore boobs and back ache which again is probably a sign of AF coming.  Just sucks being in limbo. Might test again tmrw morning if I still don't have it - haven't tested since yesterday.
  • 5DPO today and definitely going through the "stages" of the TWW. My husband didn't believe it was real. He just thought it was a funny article. Nope!  

    I spent end all day trying to put myself in a less stressed mood so maybe things will stick. And I keep wanting to google my symptoms. I know better but it doesn't stop me from wanting to do it.

  • I have a rant I'm struggling with this morning. My sister called me last night to tell me my 21 year old niece is pregnant. She is about 6 weeks.  I'm very disappointed in my niece as she is single.  She is dating the father but they have only been dating about 4 months.  She hadnt figured out what she wanted to do with her life.  She was still acting like a teen.   I don't know how they will financially make it either.  But more than my disappointment in her choices...I want more for her.  My sister had her when she was young and I helped in taking care of her.  What I'm really struggling with is my anger.  My DH and I are doing everything we can to have a baby.  I have friends that are struggling and all of you that are struggling and my irresponsible niece who wasn't trying at all is pregnant.  Just makes me mad.    And it seems like all her friends got knocked up too in the last couple of months.  It's just so frustrating!   

    Sorry but I needed to get that out
  • @Mack2342 Sorry, this journey is so difficult and unfair. Sending hugs.

  • @NewMommyCoop. Thanks!  It is unfair.  I'm thankful for you ladies!  
  • @Mack2342 - I'm sorry that you have to deal with that. My cousin got his girlfriend pregnant on accident and she had her baby 1 month before my EDD....and it was an accident. I had to watch her entire pregnant unfold knowing that I should be one month behind her. It is really hard now that she has her cute little baby and I can't even manage to get pregnant again. I understand you're feelings and it is so unfair.

  • @brooklyngirl18 - sorry for the BFN. They always suck

  • @mack2342 - Im sorry that's really hard. It always seems like people that aren't trying/ shouldn't be parents right now get pg so easily and then those that want it/ ready for it just have problems - obviously an over generalization but still. Sometimes I feel like Im being punished for responsibly waiting until I was ready.

  • @SierraFoxtrot  I'm in the same boat.  6DPO today and itching to pee on a dang stick.  I've told my husband at least 5 times in the last 24 hours alone that I want to test.  It's silly because I know that its too soon, but I can't help it.  Just like I know that pregnancy symptoms tend to mimic AF symptoms.  But it doesn't stop me from symptom checking on google.  

    @brooklyngirl18  so sorry for the BFN hun.  They suck.  I'll be keeping my FX for you for your next cycle.  Positive sticky baby dust coming your way!

    @Mack2342 I'm sorry you're dealing with that.  I've been through similar situations and it's hard to hold back my comments sometimes.  

    @TScalei FX for you!!!

    @flipflopped CONGRATS!!! So excited for you!

  • @brooklyngirl18 sorry for the bfn. The emotional roller coaster each cycle is draining.  Fx for next cycle. 

    @mack2342 sorry for the situation that you're in. It's even harder when it's family. Hugs to you  <3
  • Thanks ladies!  This is the one place I can vent and everyone understands.  I truly am grateful for each of you despite our circumstances.   

    AF should arrive in 5 days.   I've had little self control this waiting period and have tested 4 times all of course came back negative as it was too early.  I told myself not to test but couldn't help the urge to POAS. My DH laughed at me and I said you don't understand and he replied you are right. 

    Im excited for those of you who have gotten a BFP!  And wishing that for those that have gotten BFN!   

    I just bought the early HPT so I'm planning on taking this evening so I can plan for next week. 
  • @mack2342 Sorry to hear about your niece. I've had friends, not family and it was hard. Can't imagine. Crossing my fingers for your test!!

  • @brooklyngirl18 I am so sorry for the BFN. I am 14 dpo today and AF should be here. If I doesn't show up by sometime tomorrow, I will test again Saturday morning because if I am not KU'd, I plan to enjoy some wine while crafting on Saturday.

  • @Mack2342  So sorry that you are going through this right now.  As if things weren't already hard enough.

    @TScalei  I agree with you 100%.  I did the responsible thing.  Went to school, went to grad school, established myself in a good career and waited for someone to come along that I wanted to have children with.  My goal was to be settled enough so I could give a child a good home and could afford them.  Now I feel like because I'm older things are more difficult. Even though I know mcs are common, after my mc I can't help but wonder if it is because my eggs are just old.  

    @brooklyngirl18  Sorry for the BFN : (

  • @Taggarab I'm so sorry for the spotting. 
  • 11dpo today. Haven't been posting much this month- trying to reach a more zen place while TTC in case this journey is going to be long. Of course, once I get to this time of month I just want to test every morning because of course I care. 

    I'm worried about my emerging family history of multiple mc. I wish my mom had told me before I even started trying. I'm trying not to let this affect my relationship with her- we're very close- but she's a nurse. She should have known better, even if she had it good for her own pregnancy. I guess I'm just trying to prepare myself for the future. I guess we all are. 
  • @brooklyngirl18 sorry for the BFN.

  • I'm 7DPO today and I have discovered (rediscovered? admitted?) that I do not possess patience.  At all.  So, I'm curious!  What is everyone's favorite way to get through the TWW?  Personally, I started 3 new crochet blanket projects for Christmas gift exchanges this holiday season.  That's been a bit of a help.  The hubs and I have discussed starting a journal or blog together too.  Not sure what we want to do.  So what do you guys like to do to keep your mind off of the TWW?

    @Taggarab  I'm so sorry you're headed to WTO.  FX for this upcoming cycle for you!

    @lin0442  Finding a zen place is difficult when you are going through this.  Especially after a loss in my opinion.  Have you tried yoga?  Or just mediation techniques?

  • @sparrowmomma24 I've been doing some yoga. I had a bad taste in my mouth for my studio for a while because I was going to go to my first prenatal class the night I found out about my mc. Not the studio's fault, obviously, but it made it difficult to enjoy a previously relaxing hobby. 

    I've been doing a lot of creative writing and storytelling with friends, which has helped some. Gotta let that energy go somewhere. 
  • @lin0442  I haven't been to a studio in a very long time. I like doing it at home where I can relax in my own space in my own time.  But I understand getting that bad taste in your mouth. I have that about a few things after losing my daughter.  

    Creative writing sounds fun!  I'm not talented in that way whatsoever!
