I have to say, your s/n is particularly sweet for me because we had a cat named Garfield (a.k.a. Mamakitty) who just recently passed away at the ripe old age of 18 or something crazy.  I smile everytime I see your name on here.

Ultrafighter-thanks for the intro. So good to meet you!! joy.gif Welcome.gif to our (trying not to be) craziness winky.gif

 

Mamacat-Sounds like you got hit by the emotional roller coaster lol  i just realized I sometimes feel like I'm not on the roller coaster but getting run over by it!! The thought/picture of this is really cracking me up right now biglaugh.gif

 

Last night I told DP I was feeling kind of confused cuz I feel like my libido is dropping off, but my OPK's haven't indicated that ovulation is happening so I wasn't really in the mood to BD, but I felt like I should be in the mood since we weren't in the mood the night before. And he said he thinks it's more about what we want to do and not about what we "should" do and I replied, what I want is to have a baby lol  So he, ahem...started doing things that got me in the mood right quick Sheepish.gif and then joked off and on that we could stop at any point if I wasn't in the mood, when he knew darn well I was love.gif

Prescott - that is both so sweet of dp and hilarious!

Hi everyone wave.gif

 

Ultrafighter - Welcome.gif

 

mamacats - I've always wanted a cat but my mother was always against it. Now DP is not too excited about it but I don't care. As soon as we move I'd like to adopt a cat! Where are you in your cycle now?

 

prescott - lol @ DP. But according to mine, if men did not do that, we would be extinct. I try not to avoid the whole I'm not in the mood. He becomes all like "challenge accepted!" eyesroll.gif

 

AFM - Starting the 6th cycle now (CD 3). I have to  say the last two days I've been in a dark mood, after a lot of introspection, I realized the overwhelming feeling is I feel rejected.  Like my self-esteem took a hit. This was unfortunately amplified by the fact that all 3 moms I am in close contact with are now pregnant. Now when we visit them, DD comes home, puts a teddy under her shirt and say "I have a baby".  The first time she did that, DP laughed his head off while I squeezed out a half-hearted smile. mamacats - I'm thinking of doing what you mentioned, just temping until O is confirmed and stopping after that.

LilyKay-How ya doin? 

 

Where are the rest of you gals at in your cycles? 

 

I had a pos OPK 2 days ago so now we wait whistling.gif  I feel like I'm struggling w/all this waiting business. I'm a do-er and I feel like I'm doing all I can to make it happen and I feel like everything is aligned and still we wait, but for how long?? I'm 36 in about 2 weeks and DP is 39 and everything I've read says not to try longer than 6 months before seeking outside assistance at our ages and this is cycle #4, and neither of us has insurance to go seeking outside assistance anyway, and I'm truly going to go mad before too much longer. Wish I had a magic ball to help me figure out what to do...  I'm not having fun anymore. The 1st two months were fun and exciting and these past 2 months, have overall, not been fun, which makes it even less likely to get pregnant, which makes me even crazier.

Poo just lost a long post short version now - hugs on the worries prescotchels... You chart? If not I'd start - there are some really bright and knowledgeable if ladies on here that may be able to suggest some self medication IF you get to that stage 😄 I used natural therapy, kinergetics rebalanced the hormones in my ovaries and other stuff I can't remember, Bowen therapy - pressure point massage sort of, has moves that open your body to receiving. Pregnancy... That was my route to date so I'm confident I'm good to go... I'm 39 in June, dh is 39, so I totally get you 😄 here's to it working out!
Afm- 9dpo have been feeling out of the race, but yesterday temp dipped and mild cramping, today temp went up again - so I guess it's a waiting game - more google, distraction and too much charting here lol
Fx everyone gets a bfp this month and we break the ddc member record!

Chuord-Man, it sucks when the computer eats your posts!! And it always seems to happen to the lengthy ones, doesn't it?!

I don't chart currently cuz my schedule changes too much being self employed, but I used to chart so I pretty much know how my cycles go. I do get bodywork regularly every month that includes coaching, and intuitive/energy work type things to help me be ready and work through emotional issues that may be blocking me. I'm also on a bunch of supplements to help balance my body and give my fertility a boost. We test them all regularly using EAV to make sure dosage is correct for me. So I'm totally on board already w/all the alternative stuff and home "remedy" type things I can do. And yet I feel it's not enough, and I want to do more!! dizzy.gif

post #96 of 102
Lol prescotchels! Me too! But how much extra stuff would make any more difference... Well I vote for just persevering as is - in my case at least... Btw I poas today just in case 😜 bfn if course!!!

hug2.gif LilyKay. I feel you on the dark mood and agree with your realizations. This is the start of cycle 4 for me. How are you today?

Booo, I hate when long posts get eaten! I always copy them before I preview or submit for just that reason lol.gif . Alright, waiting time tea6.gif . Got my fingersx.gif for you chourd! Oh, did you decide to nix the flying?

Me, feeling pretty, just, ugh. I'm so angry, frustrated, sad, disappointed. I'm sitting with these feelings for now and looking for ways to release them when I'm done but I really hate this. If one more person around me gets "accidentally" pg I'm going to FTFO...

I hope the sun is shining on you all today and renewing your hearts and spirits as this TTC business is some bull censored.gif . Much love beautiful ladies! blowkiss.gif

Mamacats - hugs! I feel you on all the above sentiments! Where are you at in your cycle? Sieve for a brain here! Lol yes I decided not to go, predominantly a financial consideration as it would have been a $500 minimum outlay. Then mum offered to pay, and I felt bad for disappointing her. She puts no pressure on us, at 39 has never pushed me for grand kids, yet loves kids so much she helps out at school lol (ex teacher) I will go down soon but dh has just had 6 weeks no work/pay before starting as a Sugeon - so money a big consideration!

My mood yesterday was scary down - started good and went bad, must be hormonal although before AF I'm normally pathetic and cuddly not miserable and b$&chy. Spotting yesterday, another temp rise today... Who knows!!! Lol and the googling and everything is taking over my life.. Well almost time to get up and poas for my morning bfn!
post #99 of 102

ultrafighter - Awesome! joy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gifI hope you have an easy uneventful pregnancy!

 

mamacats, prescott, chourd, even though misery loves company, sorry you guys have been feeling down hug2.gif. Prescott I hear on the it's not fun part. The not-knowing is annoying. If someone were to tell me, it will happen after 5 months or even a year, then I'd relax and just wait. It's just the idea it can take one month or a year or two is what it is driving me crazy. 

 

We're now swarmed with todo's - both at work and home (moving in 4 weeks). This month cough syrup, OPKs and drinking lots of water are on the menu. CD 6 - here we go again!

chourd I'm on CD4. Not getting any of those "Oh yay! A fresh cycle!" peps, just pissed off and sad lol.gif . Hmm, mood swings, spotting, temp rise (what DPO are you?), yep, all sounds promising! And did you say you've been crampy too? So exciting! Got my fingersx.gif for you love.gif . Thank you for the hugs hug.gif .

Oh, move excitement! Did you minimize everything or most of everything the way you wanted LilyKay? Thank you for the hugs hug.gif . I'm going to toss in the Guaifenesin just to see what happens CF-wise. I think my issue lies elsewhere but can't hurt so might as well. You're two days ahead of me so we can go crazy together lol.gif .
