Erika and Velv,

I am feeling the pain with you. I am three days away from AF, but I got a - hpt and all I want to do is cry. I'm a mess. Thank god for my puppy!

Erika, don't you love the DH reactions? My theory is that it's their way of protecting themselves from feeling to much and from seeing you feeling too much. I get something similar every month, like, "I'm just happy for the life we have right now and you should be too!" which of course I am, but what I really need is a bunch of holding and his shoulder for crying on which I get eventually. I hope you feel better after getting a lot of tears out.

I also find that yoga makes a world of difference. Sometimes it's the only thing that makes me feel better. I used to go 1x per week, but once I started Clomid and became extremely psychotic I decided to go 3X per week. I do ashtanga which is spiritual and a great work out and I usually tear up a little at then end meditation, but feel so much better afterwards.

Three days to AF and counting...

cd 24 still waiting to O

{{{{{{{Velvet & Erikia}}}}}}}

Last night DH expressed his dislike for needing to GIO so often, which really upset me. I am angling to GIO so often because we are ttc, but also because I actually WANT to... partly because the idea of making a baby together is sexy to me and partly because well, my hormones are kicking. The return of my libido and the fact that I am now (occasionally ovulating) and could therefore (presumably) get pregnant are so far the only two upsides of cycling again. The shrinking boobs, expanding thighs, weight gain, cyclic mood and hunger disturbances, sore nipples, vasospasm, blah blah blah I could do without. To say nothing of my allergy to menstrual pads which only adds insult to injury when AF does comes.

How do I figure out whether he really doesn't want to GIO so often or only doesn't want to because he thinks we NEED to. Argh.

oh and I have no idea whether I am going to ovulate this weekend or some time further away, it really does seem 50/50 either way to me. arrghhh

Sometimes I feel like I am such a bitch and a bad friend. I just got a call from a friend who wants to "tell me some cool news". And all I can think is that if this is one more friend who I have to get excited about being pregnant I might lose it. Is that awful? I feel like an awful person.

I wish I could reply to all, but DH is getting . So . . .

Erika and Velveteen, I'm SO, so sorry . . .

Shannon: Thank you for the spotting info on progesterone. It just made me feel so hopeless to see spotting yet again. A person can only take so many days of seeing blood. I'm on day 5 and I know I still have at least 5 more days once AF actually arrives (and she's coming . . .tomorrow is my guess). I'm so glad you're back and I can't wait to hear about your wedding! (And see some pics!)

I'm going Alexis' route about being superstitious . . .so I'm just shhh . . .quietly KHA for some of you!

Maya This job sounds so win-win! BTW, I'd considered being a music therapist, but somehow ended up with a degree in music performance. What was I thinking???? (Did you go to school in Michigan? I know they have a program for it there.)

phoebekate: What happens if he just doesn't know where you are in your cycle? Sometimes I think it might be less sexy for DH to know TMI about CM, Oing, all that . . .

Who asked about maybe seeing a shadow on a PG test? I thought I saw the same thing . . .for me, it turned out to be the indentation in the test, that's all. I hope your news is better!

Gotta go-- hugs to all I missed!

Cd 15

Hello ladies. I am sorry that I haven't been around much. Really, really been missin my hubby and have been extremely busy with my kiddos! I haven't had a chance to read back the entire thread, but wanted to say Congrats to all of the new BFPs and Hugs to all those beginning to reboot.

I am on CD 15 and I think that maybe, just maybe I had a ovulation dip yesterday, cause my temp shot up pretty good this am!

I promise that as soon as I get a free minute to breath, I will catch up on everything!

You are definately not a bitch and absolutely not an awful person. Many of the women here have voiced their feelings about this exact topic and many find they hurt a lot more when their friends announce they are pregnant - especially when it's coupled with "...and we weren't even trying!"

So don't worry. We understand and are here to listen to you vent and get you through the rough times.

Thanks for the words of support Erika. As it turns out it was not baby news (whew!) and I don't have to feel like a bad person after all!

ravenmoon, are you excited? Congrats!!!
post #413 of 453
I'm still not too active here but I wanted to pop in and say Congratulations to Ravenmoon and I Love My Boy!

And can I roll in some of your baby dust, please, pretty please?

I am cd 40, still waiting to o? Today I was just so pissed off I decided not to take my temp for a few days and just monitor cm. Ah, I feel better now. I don't know what I expected for the first cycle postpartum. My only hope is that my two charts around when I conceived ds (the first I ever charted in my life) did not make any sense at all. So I am thinking maybe I am one of those people who don't get a clear temp rise with o? Yeah, right.

I did read a few places that charting was only 75% accurate/effective in determining whether and when ovulation occurred... I think someone asked something about that today, can't remember who though, sorry. So, ladies, there is ALWAYS hope.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Hey Erika, sorry about the reboot~ that stinks.

Ravenmoon! That test is bee-you-tee-ful!!!!
post #417 of 453
Erika, check out our meditatin' mamas thread in spirituality.

Elena, I trained at NYU. Hey, it's never too late, a music performance degree would be extremely useful! What's your instrument? Thanks for the congrats, too.

slightly crunchy, thanks for posting that 75% statistic because I'm in total disagreement with FF right now. I always "know" what day I O because I have one day of sharp pain/cramps, but they're not givign me that day. Why would I have cramps one day and O 2 days later??? I'll give it a few more days for them to see sense then I'll post my chart for all you wise women to assess.

Katy, darn those bfn. You still sound very hopeful though which is good.

Phoebekate, sounds like maybe the pressure of TTC is making GIO tough for your Dh. I felt like this was the first cycle it felt natural and mutual to us. Talking about it when I was least hormonal and not fertile helped prepare us I think.

to all that need one.
post #418 of 453
Ravenmoon: Yay!! Congratulations!
post #419 of 453
Well, not an ovulation dip...dammit....off to console myself with chocolate.


Ravenmoon...that is one purdy test!!!!! BTW, I am starting classes in the fall to become a DEM and a master herbalist...do you enjoy the classes?

I have to second the suggestion of cloth pads. I got some two cycles ago and I really love them. It makes such a HUGE difference, and I'm not even allergic to the sposies.
