Lilykay - hugs, here's to this cycle being the one
Mamacats - lol I too smile everyone I see your name, we've always had cats
Ultra fighter - thanks for the intro, you do sound like you're in a happy place - fx!
Ultrafighter-thanks for the intro. So good to meet you!! to our (trying not to be) craziness
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
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 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
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!"
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 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.
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!!
ultrafighter - Awesome! I hope you have an easy uneventful pregnancy!
mamacats, prescott, chourd, even though misery loves company, sorry you guys have been feeling down . 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!
