Hope you catch O day and BD on time!
Hope you catch O day and BD on time!
Thats what happened last cycle, I ended up detecting my surge 6 days after we BD and was hoping for a miracle. I'm not hoping for a miracle this cycle because it's either going to happen or not. good luck to both of us
Hey ladies! Sorry I've been MIA, it's been a really full on week at school (there's always some kind of drama!) and AF was pretty awful so I haven't been able to get on here as much as I usually like to. It's the weekend here now, thank goodness, and I'm trying really hard to have a couple of days off and not get swamped by planning and marking books!
newtoTTC - Welcome to the group! Hopefully your stay here is short :) Everyone here is so lovely and supportive, and all have a ton of knowledge so I'm sure you'll enjoy it here. Like Stevie mentioned, if I were you I'd just say you've been ttc for longer to get the tests you want done. I understand that getting pregnant can take awhile and why they might be reluctant to test when you've only just started, but at the same time surely it's best to know everything that's going on from the get go!
SkinnyLove - So good to see you and to hear that you're doing well! That quote you shared was a really good one for me to hear, so thank you. You'll have to update us once you've been for you 8 week scan!
LisaAdkins & A2E - I'm so sorry The wait must have been such a roller coaster for you guys! I wonder if maybe you ovulated later than normal last cycle? Sometimes that can happen if you're sick, stressed, etc. Hopefully you've both had a couple of days to take some time for yourself and rest up. Thinking of you!
Hello all, just a quick question. Anyone know anything or have experience with long periods/spotting? Last AF before this one was the early m/c, so I dismissed that I had AF/spotted for 2 weeks. But it seems to be happening again this cycle! I had such normal, even mild AFs for a while (weird for me - I used to have long, heavy ones). But this just seems so weird - I'm already seeing EWCM but still have spotting! I'm still on Vitex and a B50complex. Any thoughts?
I went to dinner with family last night and for the most part it was great, but as much as I love them it was the most frustrating night I have had in a long time. Everyone there knows we are TTC and I have never had so many platitudes in my entire life! I turned down wine before or with dinner, when they kept offering I just explained that I am not drinking right now. "You just need to relax and have fun. Then it will happen." You just need to have a fun night and then go home and ... who knows" "6 months is just a drop in the bucket, you shouldn't worry." "You are so young anyway. When it is meant to happen it will happen." I just wanted to pull my hair out. First of all, I am fairly sure it is impossible to conceive 7 dpo, so a little "wine and romantic evening" isn't really going to do it at this point. Also, I am within days of knowing whether i will get a BFP or AF so why would I jeopordize that after trying so hard and so long.
I am trying to be relaxed about it but it is really frustrating to have my concerns minimized. One of my cousins who was there has been TTC (I use that term loosely, has been off BC and hoping to be pregnant) for 3 years and has PCOS and has 3 miscarriages including an ectopic pregnancy but was surprised that I could even know exactly when I ovulate. She has decided to just take the "what will happen will happen approach" and keeps trying to force that on me. I know I cant force it to happen but I can be proactive and maximize my chances.
Sorry for the extensive vent, just so frustrated. On the bright side, at CD26, not spotting and no temp drop. this is a new long for me.
newtoTTC... That one "it will happen when it is meant to happen" is the worst!!! A very good friend of mine recently said, "if you didn't get pregnant during that time with so-and-so, maybe it's just not meant to happen." I'm surprised another TTCer was so unfeeling about it to you. I seem to get the hurtful comments more from those whose children were accidents, or who never had to truly "try." As for drinking alcohol... I never drink, and I honestly I think that pushing someone to do so is juvenile and rude. You can have a good time without liquor.
Okay, I'm done venting on your behalf. :)
Think Reproductive Thoughts!
I'm a little confused by my CM during This cycle, I got a +OPK on CD14 and had EWCM on CD 17. All my OPKs have been BFN since CD15, so their is not another surge. I think I read a couple posts on here of women stating they also get EWCM after O, but I want to double check and ask if anyone else is like that also... TIA
