We've been TTC for a few months, and I'm trying not to get my hopes up since it took over a year to conceive our first child. I have a son who will be turning 2 in a few weeks, and we've recently stopped nursing before his nap with plans to wean him completely sometime this autumn; he only nurses before bed now. My cycles have been irregular since coming off the Pill in 2007 or 2008, and I'm sure nursing has kept things out of whack as well. Since I started ovulating again, my luteal phase has been 10-11 days.
Well, here I am at day 15 after ovulation, no period in sight. Frankly, I feel like crap. I have no appetite, I'm nauseated all the time and worse around most foods, my breasts are tender and nursing is painful, I feel like there's a huge lead ball of pain in my lower abdomen that hurts when I bend over or my son cuddles with me, I'm either crying or irritated all the time, I'm exhausted no matter how long I sleep...in other words, I feel like I'm pregnant and have for the last week. I took a pregnancy test (one of the fairly sensitive Dollar Tree ones) this morning, and it's still negative. I've "tricked" myself into thinking I was pregnant before, but never this much.
I just want to know. I want to either get my period or get a positive test back. I'm sick of feeling sick for no reason and I'm sick of being uncertain.
I'm also sick of the U and N keys on my laptop sticking, but that's another matter.
Any recommendations or "that happened to me!" stories from those of you with more experience? I'd post my chart, but I can't figure out how to link to it on Fertility Friend.
