It's been a few months since I've posted but I have to vent my recent TTC fail as you all are the only ones I know will understand! This past cycle would have been the 9 cycle of TTC, and 8th cycle of planned BDing. I missed the cycle in June because I was away visiting my sick grandfather, out of country, away from my DH. I vowed to never miss another month because there is nothing worse in the TTC world than not being with your DH when you O!!! I was once again out of town but planned strategically to be back with my DH before I O'd. I then had to push my return date back about 2 days because I fly standby (family works for airline, I get cheap tickets) and the weekend loads were looking full. So I said, OK, I'll aim to get home on Monday at the latest and that should be the O date and we can at least have one BD session. I arrive at the airport on Sunday and end up trying to get on 9 flights on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. I did not get out of that city until Tuesday morning!!!!
All day Monday was the WORST because my body was screaming ovulation. I had lots of EWCM, so much that I constantly felt wet down there (sorry for TMI). Not to mention that every single flight I tried getting on had at least one young couple with newborns on it, I wanted to scream and beg for someone to switch places with me so that I could have baby making sex with my DH in time. Thankfully I did not visibly freak out. To make matters worse, they sent my suitcase, with my thermometer, ahead of me on Sunday night, so I couldn't temp on Monday or Tuesday. I assume I O'd on Monday because of the EWCM. I woke up on Tuesday still not any closer to my DH with some watery CM but with low spirits as I knew I had a whole day of travel to get through before even seeing my DH. That night, we did BD but I knew it was too late. I am now out two cycles of BDing this year which seriously irritates me.
I've been trying not to obsess over my TTCing, hence not posting on here for while, but my attempts seem pointless. Ever now and then it feels good to vent to someone who really understands what I'm going through, and I know you all do! Does anyone else have any TTC fail stories?
Also, does it not seem like EVERYONE is getting pregnant but you? The other day, on my FB newsfeed, 4 of my FB friends posted their newborn baby pictures in one day. The same day, 2 others posted sonograms pictures, one boy and one will be surprise!! yay!! Another one posted that she has reached 19 weeks!! yahoo!!! Lastly, my 16 year old second cousin (not married, not finished high school) posted that she is 17 weeks along, my grandmother will now be a great-great-grandmother! Anyways, I feel like I am the ONLY one not pregnant. I didn't see the 6th year of my marriage turning out this way, I'm trying hard not to slip into depression!
Sorry for the rant.
