Hello llr1968 & Alisha! I am in the tww myself... it feels much longer than two weeks!

Alisha, I SO get the feelings of gulit/jealousy over friends being pregnant. I wish it were me too.... I cried for a long time when I heard the last one.... Puzzled Then I feel bad for being jealous......

I actually felt so much better after reading that other people felt jealous too, I for some reason assumed it was something in my character that was flawed or I was just a bad person! It's so comforting to know that it's normal to feel that. I just try really hard to be 100% happy for my friends and allow myself to be sad (but only for a little while!). I tend to ruminate over things so I've been working really hard on changing my thought process when I'm getting obsessive!! Smile

Alisha, I felt really badly too, like I was a bad person for having those feelings....

Anyway... I am smack in the middle of my tww....
AHHHHHHH!! Tongue I am going to wait until next saturday the 29th to test.... that will be 13 dpo for me. Waiting stinks! lol.

I have my annual obgyn appt on the 25th.... I am working on a list of questions to ask her.... like the idea of using actual egg whites or canola oil versus preseed? to please revisit the ultrasound I had at the start of the month, what she saw, what she is hoping to gain from me going to see the specalist ultrasound? What's the next steps if we're not pregnant in 6 months, considering this IS month 6.... I plant to type out all of my cycle info thus far to bring with me, start and end dates of Af, my O dates, LP dates, etc... maybe she'll see something obvious that I'm missing....???

DH says I obsess too much, which maybe the case, but I tell him it's like when he obssesses over a car- he checks out EVERYTHING over, and over and over again. He didn't quite understand that it's similar- but I was trying to make a point that we all obssess over things we really want.... and that if it gets way too out of hand I'll seek help.
I think this board really helps, becuase I'm not talking to him about it all the time anymore, so I know he's happier about that! lol....
Anyway, that is my mid-tww rant. Thanks for listening!! Smile

I think it's a good idea to type it all out and bring it to your doctor, at least if you show a professional all of your info thus far you can relax that you are doing everything in your power to get pregnant! It's kind of a relaxing feeling I think to know you are doing everything you can.

I definitely can relate to the obsessing and I HATE when people tell me to just relax and not thing about it, I would if I knew how!! It's not easy to just turn your mind off of something!! CC-I'll def keep you in my thoughts for the 29th!!

I'm not sure when to do my test because I 'think' i o'd on the 16th ish but it was my first time doing OPK and I think i got a positive on my first day but I had no prior days to compare, then the tests got lighter and lighter so I'm thinking we bd's on the proper days.....also I'm bad at recording things and I don't remember the exact date that I started the opk (oops)....so I'm guessing my O day was around the 16th....but I'll wait as long as i can before I test! And next month I will definitely be writing things down!!

How is everyone else doing?!! I'd love to see some updates Smile

Hey ladies!!
I think I'm in the same boat as AlishaTrying. I'm not completely sure when my last O day was, or exactly how long my cycles are. I tried calculating it the other day, but I've been second guessing myself all the time now. Anyways, I guess you could say I'm in the TWW, I'm just not sure. My DH keeps saying I'm pregnant, that he can just tell. I want to believe him, but then again I don't want to get my hopes up too much before taking a test. I kept fighting the urge to go buy some tests, but broke down yesterday and bought a box. Now to fight the urge to take one, even though I know it's too early to get a positive off of it even if I was pregnant. I don't know if it's because my husband keeps saying that he thinks I'm pregnant, but I've been noticing different "signs" that kind of point in that direction...but then again I don't know if I'm "making" myself think I'm having these symptoms or if I really am....IDK I'm just frustrated, and been kind of depressed the last couple of days.

Hope everyone else is having a great day, and hope ya'll have a great rest of the weekend!!! Smile

ChiefsWife619, hopefully your DH is right!! I know what you mean about not wanting to get your hopes up though.... Puzzled
For me, the higher I get them, the harder I crash when AF arrives. Wishing you lots of babydust!! Big smile

CC,
Oh me too!!! I really hope he's right, especially since he was telling me I was with the first one before I even thought about suspecting it...LOL I just don't want to get my hopes up too high, then AF come like clockwork...
My pre-seed came in Friday, so I'm hoping that if I don't get a BFP this go-round, maybe the pre-seed will help get things going...

haha my DH won't even say anything, I keep asking him what he thinks. I believe he's too scared to get my hopes up haha. I'm thinking of ordering pre-seed too, you'll have to let me know how you like it. Fingers crossed for BFP's for all!!!

I found a new ticker, counts down the days for me till I can poas. I think this might be a helpful tool for me, instead of the ovulation ticker, becuase I use the OPK's religiously, so I know when I ovulate. My problem is the over use of pregnancy tests. Last month I am ashamed to admit I bought three brands, and used ALL the tests in the three boxes.

Note on the pre-seed for the ladies that haven't used it yet- I just got it this cycle, in time for ovulation this month, and used it CD 12 thru 14. (I O'd on CD14)
For me, using the "recommended" amount was WAYYY too much, lol, DH and I actually got a laugh out of it. I adjusted down the amount and I liked it. DH said it felt nice too, but he's skeptical of it for some reason. LOL....

Yesterday I spent too much time online reading articles about getting pregnant. I found some good things to discuss with my doctor, and I am also thinking that part of my non-pregnant woes are due to my weight. I never considerd myself fat or obese, but according to a Body Mass Index chart, I am "clinically obese". Needless to say I was a crying mess for hours. I ended up calling my sister (she's an RN) and she suggested we joing weight watchers together. SO that's what I did. I rallied and signed myself up. I am aiming to loose about 30-40lbs... and hopefully that will help me get pregnant.

I went to a department store today, and was trekking around just browsing... when I walked past the maternity section of the ladies clothing. There was a woman there, who was eaisly 6 or more months along, and I felt instantly sick to my stomach. Then I felt crazy, then I had to leave. So I sat in my car for a minute before driving off, thinking through things, and couldn't help but wonder WHY I felt like that, I didn't know her, and WHY am I somehow letting my emotional self take control of my rational self?!

Anyway, if you've read all that, thank you!! Smile
