Stupid Cycle- just a small vent

I'm on CD 48 and still nothing but BFNs and no sign of AF. I'm getting very frustrated. I didn't realize how maddening ttc would be, and this is just my first cycle. I'm getting the feeling that I'll make it to day 60 and have to call the doc :/. And, of course, another one of my friends announced that she is pregnant.

    You are both very right. Next cycle I will start charting so that way I'll feel a bit less in the dark as to what is going on with me. I'll probably start a blog soon too. Today was just a crappy day.

    We can all understand that.

    Just remember that you're only one cycle in. Learn some patience, drink some wine, chart, and check out Fertility Friend.

    Sorry you had a crappy day. Those are both good ideas. Also, do you know about the daily waiting to O and TWW threads? And the weekly posts, like the dear diary slash b1tchfest posts on Mondays? There would be tons of people in a similar position in those posts that you could connect with.

    I know it sucks waiting. Unfortunately, TTC is a bit of a mindfvck.

    I really would suggest charting/temping/OPKs if you want more of a sense of control of the process. For example, I know approximately how long my luteal phase is, I know that a .2 drop or more after O means AF will probably show up that day for me, etc. There's definitely a lot to gain from it.

    HTH! GL going forward!

    Bingo.

    In my mind, TTC and wine go hand in hand.
