I got a this morning and is due today. I've got the cramps, the backache, and the bitter taste of disappointment. Guess I'm starting cycle 5 TTC today.

Well, I'm pretty sure this is the first month that my body has tricked me into thinking I was pregnant and I'm not. Both times I was pregnant I just knew and had the same symptoms I have right now! : It's CD 27 and I've always had BFP before now........I suspect my period will come soon.


I'm already dreading the holiday season....our first baby would have been due in Dec. and I really wanted to have a pregnant Christmas.

I am going through this also.... I really really really hope I get pg this cycle (O'd today) I was orig. due on Dec 31 and it is really important to me that I am preg again before that. If I hit it this month we will be able to find out what we are having a few days b4 my due date which would really help ease the pain on that day.

The holidays are still a LONG way off. Im sure it will happen for both of us very soon!

Name: Karli
Date: 9/17/07
Where are you at in your cycle: CD 90
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: I am freaking exhausted, so my temps are all over the place. Haven't had a decent night's sleep in at least a week. Plus we'e been traveling because my husband's grandmother is in the middle of passing away. Oh, and I'm covered in zits.
Testing: I'm doubting anything is going on, due to the erratic temps, but if FF keeps saying I o'd, I'll probably test in a week.
Thoughts: I NEED SLEEP.

Happy Birthday Songbird!

Monday Check-In

Date: 9/17/07
Cycle Day: cd 33 or cd 1, still waiting to see which.
Appointments: None
Symptoms: Some light cramping on and off, since Thursday night. It felt the most like AF cramps on Thursday. AF was due Friday and still hasn't arrived. Some very light pink spotting yesterday morning, and some light brown spotting last night.
Testing: BFN on cd 30, when AF was originally due, and a clear digital "Not Pregnant" this morning.
Thoughts: All signs pointed to me getting AF on Friday. Then she didn't show, and I stopped feeling very crampy, so I started feeling hopeful. I don't spend much time on the internet on weekends, but if I did you can bet I would've been here, obsessing all weekend. I still have a little cramping on and off, and I'm sure AF is coming, but it's been hard not to get my hopes up.

This sucks. AF has been very regular since I stopped taking the pill. It was 31 days the first cycle, and 29 ever since. I should be on cd 4 by now, and pretty much done with the bleeding. Instead I'm still waiting. If I'm not pregnant this cycle (which I'm apparently not), then I want to get started on cycle 5.

Argh!

N,: Wife and Wannabe AP Mamma. 11/08. 9/09. Wishing for a , but wondering if I should.

HAPPY B-DAY SONGBIRD!

Name: Kelly
Date: 9/17
Day in cycle: cd12
Appointments: none
Symptoms: feeling rather frisky lately, hopefully i'll be Oing some time soon
Testing: i'm planning a trip to the dollar store to purchase a mass quantity of OPKs within the next day or two.
Thoughts: i hope my super long af won't bump my O date back. i'm not freaking out about this cycle in particular, and in fact it would kinda be a good thing if i don't get pg this cycle cause bff moved her wedding back to june. (i'm so glad we didn't sit last month out when she was originally planning for a may wedding!) my main goal at this point is just to see my LP get longer. i really want my LP to go past 10dpo, even if i'm not pg. i just want to know that it could happen, it doesn't have to right at this moment.

pazerific & Aly22681: Thanks for the support. I get really discouraged about the time I should be getting a BFP or AF.........I'm feeling better today, now that I'm having some spotting that I assume will turn into AF.

I'm feeling a bit naive myself.........I always assumed TTC WOULD be difficult, but I never thought I would get pregnant so quickly and have to deal with two m/c.

I'm new to posting...
Was convinced I was pregnant this month and just start AF today.... AGGG.. This will be our 4th month TTC and I just bought a BBT and started charting. Everyone in my family has gotten pregnant the first month they tried and then had opps babies and this month I've already had 2 "I'm pregnant" phone calls from friends. Looking for people I can vent too that understand it not happening instantly!

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 14 (Possibly 3-4 dpo, but not entirely certain. TMI - only a day of ewcm, then nothing)
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: While I can probably talk myself into anything, I really don't think so
Testing: Only if AF doesn't show up by the first week of Oct.
Thoughts: I think we wasted in this cycle. dh has been working too much, is too tired and has a sore back. Not ideal circumstances for dtd. Next month isn't looking good either, as he'll likely be working Oct. 1 to 18th without a day off. 10 hour shifts with an 1h15 commute either way doesn't leave much time for anything else. Oh well, I guess we might get lucky but I'm sort of resigned to waiting until Nov.

Thoughts:
I'm not sure how my brain has done this, but I have managed to completely convince one half of my brain that I will get pregant and the other half that I never will. Frankly, I'm just trying to ignore/not think about the fact that I will be inseminating by this time next week at the latest. I guess nature will do what nature wants. My worrying and obsessing won't change anything. Plus, I'm worried that even if I do get pregnant something will go wrong. So I'm very, very apprehensive lately. Yup. I'm a mess.
