    I am not charting this month (due to some unforeseen circumstances) but it makes me feel a little excited and naughty!  Embarrassed

    It irks me to no end when people start doing testing (even just a SA) before they've hit like 10-12 months.  I'm sorry but just because you aren't KU at 6 months doesn't mean you have to start moving forward. As the famous saying goes BEING IMPATIENT IS NOT A FERTILITY ISSUE.   

    Please note (even though this is flame free) that I am not talking about people who are over 35 and chart for 6 months, or already have a DX from a doctor.  Diagnosing yourself with an issue does not count.

    Our New Years Eve plans fell through, so we decided to just celebrate together at home by ordering a platter of Chik-fil-A nuggets and watching movies or something. When I got to Chik-fil-A to pick them up, the lady assumed it was for a party or something (as in not just me and my husband eating by ourselves in our pajamas). I was too embarrassed to correct her, so I just went with it.

    We were invited out for a couple NYE parties. Instead we're staying home, eating chinese food. I went and got take out for lunch and bought enough that we could have left overs for late dinner tonight. The lady asked me if we were having people over. I sheepishly said no, just us.

     

    I have gotten really lax on my prenatals. I try to remember them but I'm not going to kick myself if I don't.

     

    Even though DS was cranky, I left him home with daddy to go get chinese and run to target. I went and got my dogs prescription from the vets office and even though I said I'd be home in 15 minutes, I spent at LEAST 15 minutes gossiping with the vet nurse. She lives in the apartment next to our down stairs neighbor and she had some good gossip about them.

    Every time my husband talks about how much he wants a baby it kills me that I can't just give it to him NOW. I feel like I'm less of a woman because I can't even do what I'm made to do. I feel like I will NEVER get to experience pregnancy or my own child :( I know this sounds pathetic, but I just wish I had a little voice inside me that said you WILL get pregnant. Even if it took 5 years, I just want to know that it will happen.

    and I'm stupid jealous and I hate it. :( I am looking forward to the new year though. Maybe it will bring us all BFPs. I could only hope and pray that it does.

    I have a couple today. 

    TTC
    I let my hopes get WAY up for this cycle and that we would end the year pregnant.  We're at the one year mark, and it's only cycle seven, I just knew this was it for us.  When my temp dropped this morning, I had a huge meltdown with many tears and a lot of cussing.  I'm thankful that my DH is so patient and loving, he just held me and let me cry it out.

    I'm ready to admit that DH and I are going to need help to get KU.

    Personal

    I'm coming out of the religious closet this year.  My family (mostly my mom) is very religious, and I've always been afraid to admit that I just don't believe in God the way they do.  I'm really tired of pretending for everyone else's sake...

    I can empathize with you on both fronts.  It is hard to be an "out" nonbeliever.  I hope your family takes it well and is supportive.

    I am sort of ,kind of, pretty much hiding the trying part of TTC from DH. We talked about it and we made the decision together that I would get my IUD out, but now he's backtracked on me. I've been charting a little but not temping, and I've done some OPKs. What he doesn't know wont hurt him right?

    This! I tested today @ 9dpo partly due to being impatient partly because my hopes are high this cycle (even though they shouldn't be) Of course it was BFN and now I feel like its just been a big fat fail cycle (i know i know its still early) even so AF won't come until jan 8 so I still have a whole week to feel like a failure *sigh*

    Ok, Maybe i didnt put that right. He didn't completely backtrack as to say he absolutely doesn't want to try, he just isn't as gung-ho about it as he was in the beginning. I just don't want to be too pressing with him about it if that makes sense.

    Abozz : How on earth do you keep this from your DH? And why would you want to? I'm just glad he at least knows you got your IUD out. 

     

    Let me tell you a true story about a couple we know that wasn't on the same TTGP page.

    Wife wanted a baby, nagged her husband into agreeing, got pregnant first cycle, her DH FREAKED and ran, turns out, he was absolutely not ready. He pays child support, but has never actually seen his child. This girl is now a single mom, all because she was to impatient to wait for her H to be ready too.

    LOL! That reminds me of something I did once. DH and I bought a bag of candy at the store. He worked the next day, and I didnt, and before I realized it, more than half of the bag was gone. I was so embarrassed, I went back to the store and got a new bag so he wouldn't know.

    I can't stand the P&R around here anymore. I does not help anyone to tell them "ZOMG, yay! You could be preggerz!!!!11!!!eleven!!!" when what they really need to hear is information on getting to know how their body works.

    BUT...I'm almost afraid to point people in the right direction anymore, since I'm just a bitter old infertile.

     

    Personal:

    DH and I had a 'knock-down drag-out' fight today that was a long time coming. We've both been under a ton of stress and neither of us was handling it well. I actually feel better now that we got it all out, even though it was pretty ugly in the Umm house for a while.

    OK, in the spirit of this being a Flame Free thread, I'll refrain from what I really want to say.  So I'll just replace it with an emoticon:  Indifferent

    Just one suggestion - marriage and parenthood are true acts of partnership, I would think twice before taking action on something your spouse isn't on the same page with.

    I'm not sure what they have you on, but I got bronchitis over the summer in my 2ww, and the doctor told me that my antibiotics weren't considered harmful during pregnancy.  I think I was on clavamox?  I know what you mean about affecting your chances though - it's hard to not let your mind wander there when you want something so badly.  Hugs.
