Amy - I am 10 dpo today. I chickened out and didn't test thismorning b/c I couldn't deal with a BFN.

Cyndy- I totally understand not wanting to see that BFN. Plus 10 dpo is still kinda early...4 more days and then you'll be able to test right? I have a hard time figuring out where I am in my cycle, so I feel like I test too often and too early.

I wish I could just think about something else for a change instead of being so consumed by hoping to be pregnant. It's like I go to bed thinking about if I am and wake up as if I am...I don't know if that makes sense, but I just want to forget about it for a while. My BBT charting showed a drop and then a peak about 12 days ago, so I thought that might have been when I ovulated. But then I took an OPK about 4 days ago and it was positive, so I wonder if I ovulated then? I don't know, it's hard not having a period because I have no idea how to track it except guessing.

I'm getting frustrated. Plus, I know two women who have found out like were both 10 weeks pregnant within the last month and found it to be depressing, aweful news. And are still upset about being pregnant. Then on the news last night, some teen mom threw her baby in a dumpster! I just don't understand how anyone could do that kind of stuff...I feel like I need a distraction, a big and exciting one!

I've been having crazy hot flashes and cramps off and on for a couple days now..so maybe that means I am about to have a real period? Keep me posted on all your gals' days and tests! I'm keeping my FX that all of us get that BFP!

I wish all of this wasn't so confusing and so hard! I also do not understand why it is so easy for some people! With all the advances in medicine, it seems like there should be something that someone can do to make this easier for everyone!
I am not patient with this at all. I have a very strong desire to be in control, but I guess this is something I cannot control!

I think I just got a positive result on my ovulation test strip! I guess the BDing should begin...

Aww Nina, I think we all feel the strong desire to be in control about this, and it is very hard. If you got a positive OPK I would definitely start the BDing! And try to make it fun, an adventure.

Ya know, I felt like I had an epiphany last night. My hubby and I were laying on the bed after putting the kids down and we were just staring at each other in awe of how lucky we both are to have found one another. Really put everything into perspective for me...and the journey of HOW I want getting pregnant to happen for us. I don't want both of us to be stressed out of when and how it will happen, but better yet, I choose to be hopeful that God has a plan for us to conceive and we have to give this to Him. I told my DH that from here on out, I wanted to just enjoy loving each other as much as we possibly can, and if after 6 months or so, it still doesn't happen for us, then we can take other measures to pursue it. He was SO relieved to here me say this...even though he never would say it! He needed to hear it, he needed to know that in this crazy baby-fever'd woman he was looking at, was still his wife and best friend. And that put me at ease too. I guess I just wanted to share that..

So, I figured it all out and I can test on July 3rd or 4th..that will be the end of my 2ww. When will all of yours be so we can be there for each other?

I hope all of you are having a great week and are in good spirits!

<3 Amy

Go Nina!! Have fun!

Amy--I really like your epiphany! I try to be in that mind frame but sometimes it's so hard. I really thought it would be so easy to get pregnant. I am a teacher so I really wanted to plan out getting pregnant. I wanted to have the baby during the 2nd semester of school so I could just take the rest of the year off and have summer vacation off too. If I do get pregnant now it will be March when the baby is born so the plan is still good but if I don't it will still be all okay! I try to keep thinking that God has a plan for me and hopefully that includes having a baby. I just need to chill out right now because being stressed is not helpful at all. Thanks for the reminder to relax!

I'm thinking that the end of my 2WW will be July 3 or 4 too!! That's so cool that it's the same as you Amy!

FX and Baby Dust to all of you!

Liz

My test showed that I should be ovulating tomorrow or Saturday. I'm so relieved that I'm not the only one tired of BDing. It's funny, before we started TTC my husband use to say, "I could do this every day!" and now that we have to at least every other day, he's not such a big shot. We laugh and joke about it but it does get tiring. Eventhough the fertility specialist said our chances of conceiving on our own are extremely slim, I still get my hopes up and try everything I can think of to prove him wrong. Who knows...it only takes one sperm to decide he wants to move forward....so I'm still praying it could happen. It surprises me how devastating it is when AF comes when I know chances of being pregnant are so slim.

Liz- YAY! We'll be pretty much on the same with our 2ww..how exciting! Keeping my FX for you too! I totally understand wanting to plan getting pregnant around that time since you're a teacher and that would be a great way to do it. Thank you for liking my epiphany, lol..it is VERY hard to STAY in that mind frame. Now that I've told myself and my DH that I'll try to take it easy, it's something I have to remind myself to stick to. But this is the hardest thing I have ever been through. I have never wanted something so bad in life that I couldn't just work my butt off to get, you know. Everything in life that I've wanted I've worked for, but at least it was achievable, and this just seems like it's so much out of my control. Especially when I don't have a period every month, I just hope I'm not wasting my time relaxing. But hopefully we can be each other's reminders to relax from time to time Smile

Cyndy- My DH didn't believe me at first, LOL. He actually asked if I went to a psychiatrist today (trying to be funny) because someone HAD to have changed my mind. But I'm just tired of stressing him out and myself as well. I feel like the more I stress, it won't ever happen for me. How many DPO are you?

Zook- I am so glad to hear you're not giving up hope! That's the way to do it! Keep your chin up and try and have faith and (I know we all get so tired of hearing this) believe your dream can come true!!

I just put in my 2 weeks notice at my job and got an offer with a great hospital here in the medical center working in the newborn nursery and on a postpartum unit..YAY! Hopefully training for the new job and with all the excitement it'll help keep my mind off of TTC..for now anyway, lol.
