People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

  • Month/Cycle: 7/7

    CD/DPO: 25/13

    Typical LP length: 13-14

    CS/Q: Here’s the failed chart. 

    GTKY: Something a bit different from the norm. Do you have any religious/spiritual beliefs?
    I’m a Christian and I can certainly say nothing tests your faith like TTC.

    Month/Cycle: 14/14


    Timing: -6, -4, -2, -1, 0 (I’m so proud! Two days in a row is a struggle, so the fact that we were able to do three days is amazing! MH really knows how important this cycle is)

    Typical LP length: 

    Can’t even think about this right now

    I’m feeling so incredibly dizzy this morning. I almost didn’t go to work but I decided to just wing it. I’m really wishing I would of calling in now that I’m sitting here at my desk. I have no idea what’s causing it. Yesterday I woke up a little dizzy too but today is much worse and doesn’t seem to be passing.  I have a feeling it might just be from lack of sleep. MH and I have been sleeping in the same bed since a friend has been staying with us. He tosses and turns all night long. And he has tremors so he shakes randomly too. This almost week of incredibly crappy sleep might just be catching up with me. Or my other theory is a sinus infection that’s been hanging around for over a month. It’s hard to tell if it’s just allergies. I just don’t want to take anything that might hurt our chances of conceiving… ugh. I’m a mess today.


    GTKY: Something a bit different from the norm. Do you have any religious/spiritual beliefs?
    Not really. I was raised Christian but ever since getting confirmed my parents left it up to us if we wanted to keep going to church or not. We all chose not to. I don’t pray to a God but I do think all things happen for a reason (and if you want to say it’s because of Gods plan that’s fine with me). I do think there’s a heaven, but really I think it’s a coping mechanism to deal with death. MH have talked about this and we both want our hypothetical children to go to church until they’re confirmed. Similar to what our parents did. I think it gives you good morals and teaches you to be kind to one another.

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: 21/9

    Timing: -1, +1 I think. Everything was weird this month and hard to track **TW: loss** it was my first cycle after my loss, so i'm not totally sure of my ovulation and timing, but I think we decided to start trying after I already ovulated. Guess we will see soon enough. 

    Typical LP length: it's been so long since I checked i'm not sure. 12-14 days?

    Testing: bfn 2 days ago. I jumped the gun a little... Trying to wait till Thursday before wasting any more pee sticks. 

    R/R: I'm so bloated and crampy, it's really uncomfortable! Was it the crappy cheesecake I ate?? :(

    CS/Q: No, maybe next month

    GTKY: Something a bit different from the norm. Do you have any religious/spiritual beliefs? I do. I was raised very religious but lately have been struggling to figure out what exactly I believe, how I feel about my church and the people in it, etc. Lots of confusing feelings. 

    *edit because apparently part of my response got cut off.
  • @Sparty18 I'm so sorry to hear about the bfn. Fx for good results with the testing.

    @LJMoon6 Hope that the dizziness clears up soon! I think heaven is a way to soften death for people too. I'll say since I stopped believing in it, death has become a much scarier thing to me. 

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD/DPO: 29 / 10 DPO

    Timing: -2,0,1

    Typical LP length: 12-14

    Testing: I broke down and took a test this morning. BFN but it's still really early so trying not to be too disappointed yet.
    R/R: I've been scouring the internet looking for beach rental deals that are dog friendly. I'm determined to go this year on vacation. I haven't been on an actual beach vacation since my honeymoon so that'll be 4 years in August....I'm so ready.


    GTKY: Something a bit different from the norm. Do you have any religious/spiritual beliefs? 
    I was raised Christian, but as I've gotten older I think I'm more agnostic. I believe in God although I'm not sure if he/she is a being or just an energy that exists as a part of nature and I'm not sure how involved God is in our lives. I do believe in the power of prayer/energy. If we had a child though, I told my husband I would want them baptized. Mostly as a nod of respect to my family and my grandfather who dedicated his life to the ministry. 
  • Month/Cycle: 3/2

    CD/DPO: 29/4

    Timing: -4, -3, -1

    Typical LP length: unknown

    Testing: no plans
    R/R: We put in an offer on a house! We should find out by tomorrow evening. I’m super stressed about it, but it’s a great distraction from the TWW and this house is perfect for us. Fingers crossed we get it!


    GTKY: Something a bit different from the norm. Do you have any religious/spiritual beliefs?  I was raised LDS (aka Mormon), but I’m an atheist now. I can’t square the idea of a benevolent creator with the terrible things I’ve experienced (and continue to see others experience). BF and I have agreed that we would probably have our children baptized Catholic, but only to appease his family. 
  • @LJMoon6 Good job on HIO this cycle. It is honestly exhausting when you feel pressure to sex for procreation rather than just for fun. I hope this is the one for you!
  • @TJtheGoat Ahh that's so exciting! Fx that you get the house!
  • @LJMoon6 I hope you feel better. :(
    @TJtheGoat How exciting! Hope you get it!

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: 25/9

    Timing: -2, -1, O

    Typical LP length: 12

    Testing: Docs tested me this morning at my treatment. Negative. So now I'll wait to see if my period doesn't come.
    R/R: Just super exhausted from my treatment. I've slept most of the day.

    CS/Q: None

    GTKY: Something a bit different from the norm. Do you have any religious/spiritual beliefs? Some. I believe there's something greater than us, but I'm not sure what it is.
