missannthrope--so sorry to hear about your m/c.

this is my first cycle using FF, and my first time temping since we were TTC dd. i'm pretty excited to get crosshairs today, and even more excited because we DTD cd13 & 16 while dh was here with me on vaca, and FF says i Oed on cd16. yay for good timing! i know it's not all in the timing, but it sure doesn't hurt to have things line up well! :

I promised DH I wouldn't test until Saturday. I'm a bold faced liar. I tested yesterday and today with the hopes of ringing him up and saying WE'RE PREGNANT! But WE'RE NOT!!!!!! At least, I don't think so. Check my chart - the symptoms rage on and this morning (granted, not with FMU) again. I'm on Day 28 now with no sign of and I'm confused, depressed and moreover angry that I don't know what's going on with my body. This waiting stuff is incredibly frustrating and I've only got one internet cheapie and one Clearblue Easy Digital left. I'm growing more and more mad by the day. :

Hello All,

MissAnnThrope - I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you are doing okay.

I can't seem to shake my disappointment from last cycle. I guess I was just so sure we had done it that I had my hopes up too high. From now on I will not get my hopes up. I'm going to stay relaxed and have a 'whatever happens happens' attitude. In theory at least.

I don't want to dwell on it too much, but I'm curious about what are some reasons that pregnancy might not occur (when timing and EWCM are good). All the reasons I can think of involve something being wrong with one of us which I know isn't true, right? I know its naive to think that pregnancy should just happen, but I can't help it. I guess I'm naive.
post #92 of 229
MissAnnThrope I'm so sorry.

CNutty, I'm following your other thread, waiting for updates. Good luck!

Gillian28, how many cycles have you been trying? As far as I know, sometimes you can have perfect conditions and still not get pregnant. It doesn't mean anything's wrong. There's what, a 20% chance of getting pregnant every month without external circumstances? If it hasn't been a year yet, I wouldn't worry. I feel your frustration, but I wouldn't worry.
post #93 of 229
gillian, don't worry. Even if everything seems perfect, I guess it's just not a clear-cut enterprise. sperm and eggs don't follow rules!!
post #94 of 229
Hello,

Thank you for your replies. Last cycle was only our second and I know it's ridiculous for me to be complaining. I guess I just wanted to hear someone else tell me that two completely healthy people still may need a few months to conceive. *sigh* I'll be okay...

Only two more weeks until ovulation
post #95 of 229
gillian--were you on the pill before you started to ttc? for me, it took many months to get it out of my system and finally get pg. not trying to be a downer, just saying it's probably not anyone's fault. don't worry, it will happen!

i'm wondering if it will happen this cycle. a friend and i almost got arrested two nights ago by a cop on a power trip for absolutely nothing. he said we were both on drugs. it's a long rediculous story, but i wish i just could have said i'm ttc and in a 2ww--i'm not even having a second cup of coffee in the morning, why on earth would i do something that's far more risky?!? so, needless to say, it was a very high-stress situation, and it messed up my normal temping time. stupid cop, messing up my chart :
post #96 of 229
pazerific, how many months did it take for you? I know everyone's different but I need a number to make this experience easier to handle for me. thanks!
also: why would anybody just say you're on drugs without any reason??? that's messed up!!
post #97 of 229
oceane--yeah, it was really messed up! he said i had glazed eyes. i said it was because i have a toddler with a cold at home (my first night out alone in months!!!) and hadn't been getting enough sleep. his other reason was because my tounge was white--i was extremely thirsty and had been sitting there for almost an hour at that point with nothing to drink! i would love to find anyone whose tounge doesn't look white when they're as parched as i was! he was basically just a jerky sheriff on a power trip, and i was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

i went off of the pill in 5/04 and we started "trying" pretty much right after that until about 9/04. dh got a transfer at work, so we put ttc on hold until we were moved and settled. i think we stopped preventing by about 1/05 or 2/05, but we weren't "trying" at all at that point. i got pg in 5/05, much to our delight. i know it sounds like a long time, but actually it took about 6mos total, 3 of which we weren't trying for at all.
post #98 of 229
thanks pazerific. I know that I just need to wait and see when my body's ready but it's just nice to have success stories and be assured that eventually the effects of BC will vanish.
post #99 of 229
I went off bc over a year before we started trying and I am so glad that I did. I think I had about 5 periods over an entire year (including the one right after bc). My cycles have been averaging 40-45 days since February so I guess I'm officially 'regular'. It is really frustrating though. I told my doctor about my issues and he just kept saying 'your body will return to what it was before bc'. I tried to explain to him that I had 30 day cycles before bc but he wasn't really listening. :
Okay, I'm done ranting.
After this cycle (if I'm not pregnant ) I'm going to start taking vitex.

Also, that is really crazy about the sherriff - I would have been sooo mad.

rametteperegrine and simplelah:

gillian: One thing that could go wrong when you do everything right: the swimmers could simply swim up the wrong tube! There are about a billion things that could go wrong in the vast number of steps needed to conceive. Actually when you look at all the things that could go wrong, 20% success starts sounding really high. Of course that's no consolation to us, we want to be pg NOW! But almost everybody gets pg within a year (or, I'm guessing, 12 cycles since for those of us with long cycles we only get 8 in a year).

pazerific: how irritating! At least you've got a good story...
