TTC after 35

7 dpo/1 ww

I got through the first week of my 2ww with no problem - I hardly even thought about it with the other things on my mind. I'm pretty anxious to get through this second week, though. I don't have a lot of hope, though.

I was trying to explain to H the sense of urgency I felt, and I told him that I feel like my eggs are rotting inside of me. Instead of being comforting, he decided to go for funny, and started making jokes about pickled eggs. I was not amused. He stopped when I started crying.

  • I'm right behind you at 5dpiui. One week down, one to go!

    Your DH probably felt like a big heel...most men often think they are being silly and not hurtful....alot is hurtful in our present state of mind. Sorry you got upset.

  • 4DPO here....waiting patiently so far.  That will change about 10DPO.

    I bet your DH thought a little joke would lighten your mood - I am sure he didn't mean to hurt you.  I know he learned a lessson.

  • I don't like him feeling like he has to walk on eggshells around me, but I am dam sensitive lately!  He's not usually like that... I don't know what got into him!

  • Sorry about h's comment! Good luck this cycle. I am at 9dpo and I was like you, good right up until 7 dpo. 
    Me:39 Dx LPD, Fibroid, AMA and all that goes with that. H:37 Dx low motility and low morphology. TTC since 3/12. Clomid 8/12 and 9/12: BFN. 11/12 on a break for Myomectomy sched. 11/26. Resume TTC early 2013.
  • I'm 7dp2dt and I like you don't have a lot of hope and the first week has gone okay for me - I think because I don't expect a lot - I try to keep my mind on other things and not obsess about what could or couldn't be but I have to admit as the days go by it's getting tougher and tougher to distract myself with other things.  I'm sorry your H made a comment that made you feel bad - I'm willing to bet he won't make that same mistake again!  Hope your 2nd week of wait and mine goes by really quick :)
