Good luck! Hang in there. I had a cycle last time that went on forever for seemingly no reason at all and I kept getting BFNs. It was making me nuts. This cycle I'm just trying to chill. Haven't O'd yet so we'll see how well I do. I just wanted to let you know you aren't alone.

We've been ttc our 2nd for 4 months now and I'm getting frustrated. It should be my AF by now (I'm not regular - somewhere between 24-28days) but nothing - neither BFP nor AF. Oh well, I'll wait for a couple of days and test again. Stop me from going
: for you frog! I hope your midwife can help you move things along.

I think you are normal! When we were trying for our first, we were both pretty scared even though we knew we wanted children. Now we're trying for #2 and I am 35 (edging on closer to 36) and I've been having vascillating thoughts this cycle. Last cycle was really hard on me - it went really long but I wasn't PG.

So now it's September and I'm scared! I'm 35 and I know I want children so it's confusing to feel so scared about this change. I guess I should mention it would be our first. Oh and should I be concerned that my sex drive evaporated as soon as September started?
I am also an artist and sometimes I am afraid I'll never get to do my art if I have another. But if we don't do it soon, I'm afraid we won't be able to. (It took us a long time to get DD - but once we discovered the secret of the EWCM - wham! we got PG right away after 2+ years of trying).
I still want a baby too though. So I think most of my anxieties are stemming from the emotional rollercoaster I was on last cycle. I know I can always go back to doing art at any age. I can't have a baby at any age. So all this
ing is just saying that I can relate to your situation.
Before we decided to actively TTC, my sex drive was really intense around O. Now that we're officially TTC, it's kind of disappeared, mostly due to my hyper-awareness of the mechanics of getting PG.
So this cycle I am going to get started on the evening primrose, etc. (I have maybe 2-4 hours
of precious EWCM right now) and try to take better care of myself. This includes eating better and also doing some drawing. I am doing a babysitting trade with a friend and DD just went over to her place so in about 5 minutes, I am going to start doing some drawing. The dishes and the laundry can wait.
I would've started the mucous-inducing regimen earlier, but DH's paycheck was late and we were busy playing beat the bank. He finally got paid yesterday!
Yeah!! So now I can try and get on track with the eve. primrose oil and all.
to us all!
