Anyalily and Kitteh- I am sorry about your emotional roller coaster! I know how you feel- I am there every month, even when we stopped trying, in the back of my mind I knew when I was ovulating and when I was late... Good luck to both of you!

I know how you feel, anyalily. I'm right there with you, I've been weepy and on and off depressed for a couple of days.
According to FR my period is due today, but nothing. I still think I'm a 30 day cycle, so I'll be looking for AF to show upo n the 20 th, if she's coming this month. I am out of internet cheapies and refuse to use the one digital that I have until I'm at least a week late. Too man y bfns would just depress me more.
So I'm still hanging in there, trying to distract myself and praying that my pantyliner stays dry. Thanks for asking. Baby dust to you! I don't think you are out just because of a bfn at 12 dpo. It's not over til AF shows up!
Kitteh, I will watching for AF on the 20th too! Or rather, not watching for her. I am a POAS fiend right now. I peed on two this morning and one this evening. Still nothing. Sometimes I feel a glimmer of crampiness.post #24 of 509/18/12 at 10:50pmpost #25 of 509/19/12 at 9:40amThread Starter
13 DPO now, and another BFN. Hmmm. No signs of AF. Sore boobs. A wave of nausea this morning when confronted with a bad smell. Still hopeful!
I woke up in the middle of the night, thought it could be close to morning so I temped before I got up to pee. I was super warm, 98.6. Then in the real morning (2 hours before I usually temp) I woke up and was low, 97.7, which would be just below the coverline, but I was out of the covers and felt really cold. Even my mouth felt cold. I got back into the covers, but didn't do anything and temped again, and I was back above the coverline, 98.2. Which temp would you use? LOL.
I want to know already!post #26 of 509/19/12 at 1:43pmpost #27 of 509/19/12 at 4:22pmpost #28 of 509/19/12 at 8:56pmpost #29 of 509/19/12 at 10:04pmAnyalily - last temp sounds good. when something like that happens to me, I usually figure I didn't place the thermometer in the right place or something. I also tend to pick the temp that makes sense (whichever seems closest to the last few, unless it's near O time - in which case I'd pray for accurate temps the first time so I'm not guessing!)post #30 of 509/19/12 at 10:51pmpost #31 of 509/20/12 at 9:44amThread Starterpost #32 of 509/20/12 at 1:22pmpost #33 of 509/20/12 at 1:35pmpost #34 of 509/20/12 at 1:40pmThread Starter
I am waffling. I am a waffle. Right now I feel like I am going to get AF any second. Slightly crampy, watery discharge. But then again, I remember feeling this way the day I found out I was pregnant last time! And last night, I had a nicest, most pregnant feeling wash over me, sort of a humming in my womb and a peaceful feeling. I want that!
I think I stress so much about conceiving each month because if I don't conceive it is another opportunity for me to decide to take time off to lose weight and get healthier. But I don't want to wait! And I don't seem capable of dieting and TTC, because I get emotional and I am emotional eater.
Any one else feel a little depressed when TTC? What do you all do to take care of yourself in general? I am trying to learn self-care that doesn't involve food, alcohol and shopping. ;)post #35 of 509/20/12 at 2:42pmThread Starterpost #36 of 509/20/12 at 3:23pm
I'm so sorry Anyalily!
I'm still waiting. No AF, spotting stopped a few days ago and was never heavy enough that I considered it to be a period, but maybe it was? I have no idea. My bbs are sore and I have a heavy, bloaty feeling low in my abdomen, and I'm TIRED. But who knows if any of that means anything.
I ordered 25 wondfos online and instead they sent 40 ovulation predictors! So maybe that is the Universe's way of telling me that I have another month of TTC? I guess those OPKs will come in handy if last weeks spotting is the only AF I see this month (plus I paid a lot less than they are actually worth! Joke's on you, Universe.) I have no idea when I'd count as CD1 though. On CD25 I only saw the blood due to a cervical check, and then in the days after that it was so sporadic that I have no idea when I'd be ovulating based on that.
So I guess I'll go out and get some tests and check tomorrow morning and if I get a bfn I guess I'll bust out the OPKs and start using those? I have to read up on that stuff, though, because I have no idea how to use them. Maybe I'll pick up a thermometer too and start temping.post #37 of 509/20/12 at 9:42pmpost #38 of 509/21/12 at 7:31am
Anyalily - So sorry it didn't happen this cycle....
Kitteh- Confusing! Still Hoping it was spotting and you get a bfp....
AFM- CD 16 and still no ovulation. I had a chemical loss 2 cycles ago and have yet to ovulate since then. I hope hope hope I will ovulate this cycle. I've been taking Maca for a month now and my CM is the best I've had ever had. So I'm still very positive about this month. I bought off brand opk's and they suck. I got several duds this cycle so I've run out. I chart too and usually have a large temp dip and haven't had that yet. So we'll just keep bding!post #39 of 509/21/12 at 8:33ampost #40 of 509/21/12 at 11:55amThread StarterQuote:
It is not too late to temp! That could help clear things up. If you are having lower temps, you will be pre-O and if they are higher it could be another sign that you did somehow conceive. Funny about the OPKs...
I am feeling better today. It feels cleansing to be bleeding, and I have a luxurious day at home by myself, all day! I work out of the home and so I have't had a day to myself in a very long time. I cleaned a little, played guitar, now I am drinking rootbeer and catching up on TV. I am working on this self-care thing!
I also started taking St John's Wort. I know it isn't supposed to be good for TTC and pregnancy, but I am not conceiving anyway and if I can kick this mild depression and lose a few pounds, I will have a better pregnancy when it finally happens. I may just take a small dose for the first half of my cycle. If anyone knows of any good resources about SJW when TTC, or other natural, gentle mood enhancers, please let me know.
