Dying to Know Either Way... — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

Dying to Know Either Way...

I know that many of you ladies will understand how I'm feeling right now so I figured I could vent.  I don't temp but I do chart my cycles and symptoms, but I average a 28 day cycle and my longest since I've been tracking it (6 mos) has been 30.  I wanted to use OPKs again this month but I didn't because we were visiting my in-laws during what would normally be my FW and I didn't feel like leaving OPKs in my MIL's bathroom garbage!  So figured we'd just see what happens this month...

Well, now I'm on CD31 and I'm going crazy!  I haven't had any of my usual symptoms I get before AF.  I usually get cramps throughout the week before and I had minor cramps on Sunday for all of 3 minutes.  I am severely bloated and have been for about a week now but haven't had any other symptoms, normal or otherwise. I was so anxious the evening of CD29 that I held my bladder for 4 hours so I could test and it was negative. I will test tomorrow morning with FMU if AF doesn't show her ugly face later today but I am so anxious and it's all I can think about!  If this isn't our cycle, then I just want to know so I can move on to the next cycle. Tomorrow morning feels so far away!

    Is she trying to ask us if she's PG in a roundabout way, or is this simply a "oh noez BFN!" post?  I can't tell.

    That will be tomorrows, you know the day that is soo far away, post. "BFN but I'm late"

    The 2ww thread is a great place to post about it or find others that are going through the same thing. Just posting something really long with a real question seems more like a blog which this is not.

    Who knows, maybe.  Funny how we're all categorized as so helpful in your BFP post (was it DD'ed?) but then we're big meanies.

     

    What's REALLY funny is how rude you get when someone gets their BFP.

    I just don?t understand how rudeness on a BFP post is ever warranted. Are we not all striving for the exact same thing? Getting a BFP IMO is something to be celebrated and cherished no matter how it?s ?posted? If we all got a BFP when we wanted them none of us would even be here. Most ladies on this board whether they post once or thousands of times are not sharing their news with anyone so this board is the only place to vent, ask and rejoice.  If that is not what the board is for then what is it?

    Nah, no burn.  She only started acting this way after she got her BFP and wanted to remind everyone in several separate posts.  Everyone congratulated her...and the posts kept coming.

    If I do ever get a BFP, (the snark was especially low to someone who's dealing with IF), I won't post it 4 times.

    Oh, sorry, I wasn't talking about YOU being passive aggressively snarky.  I meant Alicia.  I was actually the one who was first to call her out on posting 100 BFP posts in a row and I feel like I caused the snowball.  lol.  Poor kid.

    Exactly!  I've seen so many people on here get ripped to shreds, including Alicia, and it really isn't warranted.  And yet any time someone says something about any comments being rude, they just get their heads bitten off even more.  Everyone is on this board for a reason.  Most people don't want everyone in their personal lives to know they're TTC so they are looking for some support somewhere else, and this is where they've turned.  I simply vented, which I've seen so many other people do.  If you don't like it, don't comment on it.  I certainly don't comment on every thread I read.  If I think the question posted is silly or whatever else, I just don't comment.  I have no intentions of trying to make anyone on here feel bad for asking a question, that they haven't been able to get pg yet, or they don't know how fertility works as well as some others.  But this is where they've turned to.  Thanks for letting me experience how it feels first-hand for being completely berated.  It sure is a lot easier to snap at people you've never met.  I'd like to think that those of you who didn't have anything encouraging to say to me don't treat your friends and family like that.

    I'm sorry people on this board can be so snarky and mean. They're not all like that. I hope you get your BFP this cycle! FX for you. =)

    OH THANK GAWD. I was going to page you on 1st tri but, you know, I got distracted.

    Have you cleaned the pubes off of your bathroom counter yet? Or is the sink still sporting a full bush?

    More bush than 70s porn no doubt.

    I die.
