I got my AF in full force yesterday - can barely get out of bed... I am having insane cramps! Almost nauseating.

Meg, what kind of things do you do everyday? Do you work? Do you go to a gym? You need to do something where you meet people! I am a lot like you, interacting with other people makes me feel better. You should find something where you are with people more often, that way you have less time to think. Sometimes thinking is worse for you than you think.

Mrs Berrocal-I'm sorry you got your AF and it is hurting you so bad! Right now I'm not doing anything during the day and it is driving me insane! This is the first time that I haven't worked since I was 15 years old (I am 27 now). I want a job, but right we are waiting for my husband's promotion at work. Once he gets the promotion (within the next few months), we will be moving back to Alabama and he will commute back and forth between AL and PA (they will fly him once the promotion is given). I don't want to get a job now and then three months later, quit. When I look for a job, I plan on finding one and staying there. I know how hard it is to find replacements and I don't want to put any company in a bad position. So, with all that said, once we move back to AL, I will be getting a job there. But I am definitely the type of person where I like to be around other people.

I'm way behind on everything here!
I live in Canada, Southern Ontario. We are having some gross weather! It's pouring out right now! We have a new puppy. He is 4 months old. We are still working on the whole training thing. He is still having accidents inside, he had a bladder infection so that set us back a bit! He is obessed with water, and everytime is rains out, he won't go, he just goes outside and drinks the water, and then ocmes in and pees on the floor!!! He really keeps me busy when I'm not thinking about TTC! As I said earlier, it's my ovualtion time. I've been testing since last wednesday, and finally today the little striped turned dark enough! I think that might have been a bit of a problem the past few months. I tried the ovulation strips when we first tried, and was right on my cycle, so i didn't do it again, for a while and last month i noticed my cycle was longer! Hopefully this will help a lot this month.. I don't know how i didn't pick up on that sooner....
Mrs. Berrocal - I hope your cramps get better! Mine have been so much worse since I've been off the pill.... I also used to get really bad headaches, like migrains, and I read that ibuprohen can cause problems with ovulation! Just a note because I know some people only take that!
Meg - Mrs. Berrocal is right about getting out of the house. I live 45 minutes away from my family. Not that far, but far enough that it's hard to visit them all the time. I work in the same city that they live in, but my husband and I drive together to work, and we have to pick up my stepson at 5:15 on the dot or the baby sitter gets angry. so i don't really see then that much. Plus I don't know anyone where we live! we both moved to sort of a middle ground between our familys, and a small town to provide some stability in my stepsons life (his mom died when he was 5, and they moved around alot the first 5 years of his life) Which we both loved the city, but it's hard to meet people! So i'm also trying to take some time for myself to do things.. It seems to help Smile
Anyhow I hope that everyone had a great weekend I have to go make some dinner!!!

MrsBerrocal - I'm sorry to hear about AF's arrival and the terrible cramps you are having to deal with. I cant imagine dealing with horrible cramps every month. I hope they ease up soon!

Meg - I'm sorry you are feeling so alone. I understand how sad it can make you feel moving somewhere you don't know anyone. Especially around the holidays as my husband and I moved at the beginning of November last year and it sucked! I hope that your husbands promotion comes very soon. I'm with MrsB. maybe find somewhere you can go or do something to occupy your mind.

CML - Yay for ovulating!! I hope you catch that egg! I hope things get better with the potty training of the puppy. I know how frustrating that can be! Mine will be a year old on Christmas morning, so potty training in this house is done except for my husband! Hahaha, just kidding! Do you have a yard he goes out in? We had a problem with out male doing the same thing... Until we started leaving him out in the rain until we actually saw him (watching from the window) go to the bathroom, then as soon as he was done we'd swing the door open "good boy, come on in" Only took a few times of him getting completely soaked to figure it out. Good luck!!!

AFM - I got my hCG results and my level is at 66 (as of 11/17) which isn't bad. They took another blood draw today to see if it's doubling. I'll know Wednesday afternoon. Hopefully everything is ok. My husband and I still cant decide what to do for Thanksgiving. We've been invited over to a friend of mines house, but they smoke a LOT and neither my husband or I care to be around cigarette smoke. My friend said that because her granddaughter who has some sever medical problems will be there that they wont be smoking in the house.... But, I'm having a hard time getting my husband to say yes or no either way. So, who knows what we'll do at this point. When he gets home tonight I'm going to have to get an answer one way or the other so I can let her know to expect us or not.

Thanks everyone, the cramps have subsided a little bit. It's probably because I'm off birth control.

Meg, you really should join a book club or something, find a way to be with people!

Julie, I hope they keep the smoking to a minimum, since it's not good for the baby!

CML, that's so awesome that you got a puppy. What a great distraction! And I bet he/she's cute Smile

Hello ladies! Sorry I haven't been around...I was throwing my own pity party. After being 7 days late for AF, I started on the 8th day Sad

I have finally decided that I am going to stop actively trying. I'm not going to chart, temp, track symptoms, worry about when I ovulate, IF I ovulate...I'm so tired of it all.

My friend that was ttc and having a hard time, found out a couple of weeks ago that she was pg (yay for her), and then she told me the other day that she is pg with...wait for it...TRIPLETS! (again, yay for her) Now, she is given the option to terminate one of them...and 1% of her is actually considering it. Here I am with no baby and she has 3 and is thinking about getting rid of one. :/ Pity party again.

This whole thing stresses me out, and after 2 years and 2 m/c's, I think I am finally ready to just let it all go and let God.

I wish you all the best of luck and send my baby dust your way. Hopefully you ladies will have better luck than I did.

Au Revoir

Elle- I'm so sorry Sad It really blows when your body plays tricks on you like that. And then to top it off you have a friend who is thinking about terminating one b/c she is having three Shock! I agree, three is a lot but if that is what God blessed me with then I would most certainly take it. That's her personally decision, of course, but I can definitely see where it would upset you. It would upset me too.

I am with you on the not charting, watching for signs, worrying about when you are ovulating, etc. I'm not going to do it either and I haven't been TTC for over two years, so I can only imagine how you tired you must be. I am in the throws of a pity party myself right now. I hope that you get your BFP even if you aren't actively "trying" and I hope you get it soon.

Well, AF just came Sad . No big shocker, there. It wasn't suppose to come until tomorrow, but hey why not show up a day early? Maybe it is a good thing that I will be by myself tomorrow because Lord knows, I'm not going to be in a good mood as my 2nd day is always my worst day. I guess, it is on to the next month. I just figured I would give an update. Talk to you ladies later!

Elle,

I am really sorry about your situation. I know how hard it can be, and I can only imagine how sad you feel. I think that your decision is a great one, but it seemed like that message was an adieu, as in, you won't be coming on this website anymore. I really hope that is not true, because I would hate to lose you as a buddy on here.

Ashley
