February TWW Thread - Page 7
SparkleMaman: Yep! In one ear and out the other was certainly my experience as well . But plenty of subconscious terror to keep me company, yay! Yeah, not really lol. And no, I don't think you sounded preachy either! We as women are for sure always putting the wants and needs and feelings and, and, and... of others before our own. What I've noticed is that we give so much of ourselves to others, especially before we've truly gotten to figure out who we are first, then once we're a little older, a little wiser, a lot more sure of who we are, we begin to focus on our wants and needs more. I think that can be a little jarring when the people we love are so used to how much we freely give of who we are and the things we sacrifice, some big, some not so much, w/o asking anything, or much of anything, in return; I think it goes unnoticed quite a bit and gets taken for granted. I don't know why so many of us feel guilty for wanting to take care of our own desires . We should definitely own them and make no apologies for our feelings. It's all such a damn tightrope walking act .
Livnkades: Marriage is a big old ball of crazy . In so many ways marriage is absolutely awesome but in quite a few others it'll send you off the deep-end . No one can explain what marriage is truly like to someone that hasn't gone there, just like giving birth, having kids, going wingsuit jumping lol, etc. It's really difficult to effectively communicate what we feel a lot of times. It would be soooo much easier if your partner just freaking knew right?! Words do get in the way now don't they? Glad you're going to hang out so we can keep up with how you're doing .
Biting my nails here Blonhrt!
Me, I picked up five $ store tests a little bit ago. Haven't had even the slightest urge to pee on any of them .
mamacatsbaby- Nope, my cm had been dry with no other pre-ov symptoms since cd15. Today I had a tiny bit of cm, but I don't think it was ewcm. I also had cravings which is typical for me leading up to ov. I did read into having a post-ovulation dip some and there can be a secondary estrogen surge after ovulation which can cause those two symptoms...who knows! I'll have to just wait for the temps to tell me.
blohnrt- So anxious for you! Fx!
OMG I have missed so much today!! No way will I be able to remember everything but...
Congrats, Slammerkin!! Awesome news!!
Sparkle - SO glad you and DH are on the same page. That is so wonderful. Marriage is such an interesting journey.
amyc - I wouldn't freak out too much about your chart yet. Today's circle is open. How far off was it from your normal temping time? Can you try adjusting it and see what you get? I bet with your other signs that you did ov, but FX!! I hear you on the LPD. I had a horribly short LP when I was TTCing DD. Progesterone was the thing that helped me. Seems even now, 5 mo aft weaning, that I'm still not normal. I know some people can be messed up for a year afterwards. Blech. So aggravating! I forget, have you thought about progesterone?
Blonhrt - Can't wait for results!!!
You too, mamacatsbaby!!
amy: Yep, I've read that about the estrogen too. Everything seems to want to point to O; I'll bet you're good to go. Time will give us the whole story now won't it! Getting your hormones checked sounds like a good step to take just to know what you're working with.
katie: I can't believe how quickly this TWW has moved for me . Guess fear and loathing are good for TWW madness?!
Me, I'm so sleepy but I can't sleep . Guess I'll lay down anyway and maybe my day will catch up with me. 'Night all!
Thanks Katie! I have thought about progesterone. I called and left a message last week for a Holistic NP in the area who specializes in this sort of thing. I plan to make an appt with her at the end of this cycle so we can start testing hormone levels. I'd prefer to get preg without taking anything but I also don't want to wait too long. 11 months feels long enough! Do you still have short LPs now? How is your cycle messed up?
I stopped nursing in August and was continuing to have short LPs. Same thing happened when I was still nursing DS and TTCing DD. Progesterone worked last time for me so I started it this last cycle and had my first 13 day LP. 11 months is definitely long. Not terribly surprising with nursing but it's definitely long and I'd be frustrated too! You can definitely get your progesterone levels tested but it's a pretty fickle test since the levels fluctuate a lot and so one level doesn't really tell you a whole lot. If you've been nursing and your LP is short I can almost guarantee your progesterone is low. I would imagine your NP will probably prescribe some so you can get a stronger lining and support implantation. FX you don't need that and this is the cycle for you but if not I would definitely make the appt.
FX Larski and Blonhrt! I think I am going to make DH hide all my tests this time around!
I'm more optimistic about it now with days of sustained higher temps... 7 DPO and all I can think about is getting myself to 9 or 10 and start testing lol I am a mess!
Lol agggghhhh! It's ridiculous. Cause I know Im not the one who would ever feel such a thing! Lol no pregnancy symptoms early on, when they do hit they are mild, etc etc. sigh. I just have to WAIT and it is so hard today!
Renaissance- our charts look crazy similar this month! Your chart looks excellent though. GL with the next couple days...find something to distract you til you can start testing! :)
My temp was up again this morning. 2 more days of high temps and FF will confirm ov for cd15!
I'm discovering that I like testing early. I view it as a gentle reminder that AF is around the corner. What I mean is that I know there is a possibility of a BFP within the next few days, but just seeing a BFN prepares my mind for AF. So there's my wacky logic for the day.
Just needed to vent!
Sparkle Thanks for sharing your story! I got teary eyed to the part where you mentioned you were crying over missing someone who isnt even there yet. Thats exactly how I feel, I have my daughter and my husband but my family doesnt feel complete and after two years now of trying im so freaking frustrated!!
I feel so super sensitive this morning. Thank god my students have gym right now because im just a basket case. Today is CD29 and 11 DPO. I tested yesterday at 10 DPO but BFN so go figure. I think thats why im so sensitve right now. Ill test again this Friday when im 13 DPO.
I was so cranky with my husband this morning and I felt like I couldnt express to him WHY I was so upset and cranky because I felt like if I did, then I would just break down and Im just trying to hold it together right now. I was emotional last night too watching my daughter, relying on me for entertainment and she has no sibling to have fun with and play with. I have 3 siblings and I could not imagine growing up as an only child.
Im just so frustrated and I just don't have a good feeling about this one at all.....AGAIN!
I think Ill run to the dollar store rt now during my prep and torture myself with POAS knowing it'll be neg again! Ill save my expensive HPTs for this Friday!
Anyways, thanks everyone for sharing your stories, Im just so sensitive today!
It's taken me a long time to get to this point. My DD1 was a clomid baby, DD2 was my injectables+IUI baby. DD3 joined us by adoption. Then 8 years after my last pregnancy (DD2) I discovered I was pregnant with my DS. So I've experienced TTC two ways - the hard way and the oopsie way. Now here I find myself trying for another - I have no idea how this is going to go. I hoping that a little progesterone is all I need, but no matter what, I'm going to be zen about the whole thing. :)
