We're 12dpo here and irritability is the biggest thing going on. However, we're also house hunting and unexpectedly job searching, so things are crazy stressful.
PF, I feel like I could have written your post word for word! sorry to hear about the unemployment annoyances, we totally feel you!
I think hugs are due all around, so here are some hugs for everyone!
Thanks for everyone's encouraging words. I just need a little tantrum now and then. It's nice to know I'm not alone - even if I wish we could all have short sweet stays on this board.
Still madly in with jb after 10 years and chasing after my precocious toddler
Indigo - thanks for checking in, it means a lot.
I started bleeding yesterday - I knew it was coming, I was going to a wedding, so I took the cuppy just in case, so it didn't take me completely by surprise, as it otherwise might have, since I was only 10 DPO.
I am in Toronto, enjoying my old haunts, and feeling very emotional - when I start bleeding early like that, it's almost like I get PMS and bleeding all at once, it's a very intense emotional experience for me. Not to mention the disappointment of having a recurringly short LP and everything else.
Time to regroup, enjoy my vacation, and if you don't hear from me much in the next couple of weeks, don't worry, it's just about lack of internet access!!
I've been having cramps all week that feel like AF which is not like me. I usually have cramping during O and then not again until AF is here. I'm not going to think about whether it's a symptom or not so that I'm not disappointed if it doesn't happen.
Until then, good luck to the rest that are still in the tww!
Have a great holiday today! We're going to see the Phillies play the Marlins tonight.
At least I get to hang out with you all a bit longer!
So, I'm doing an unmedicated cycle and hopefully next week will be the week. If not, we'll be out until August b/c of travel. So f/x (plus, I feel like morning sickness would be so wildly inconvenient in July due to my work schedule that it's practically guaranteed
I am sorry to hear that MP is back in this thread...s
s to Papa and all those still wishin'&hopin'
Two moms and two boys enjoying the truth that love always wins!!!
So much for beginner's luck for me. It's really disheartening that even with switching carriers we didn't succeed this time. : (those two together mean gloomy crap which this certainly is.)
This morning my temps were down, then we went and got some more tests and both were negative. Now spotting and cramping. We are going for a blood test tomorrow, unless I really start bleeding a lot tonight.
Back to the gyn table, as it were! (So there's a lot of gloomy crap clouds out there today, huge hearts and hugs to everyone else!)
I see many of you are here with me! Wishing you all much luck!
Also, the time has come for me to ask the question: Is anyone up for taking over the thread for June? We won't be TTCing in June for sure, and while I don't mind keeping the thread even though we won't be trying, it might be more fun if someone really in the thick of things did it. Let me know!
Yeah, I'm out for sure. I started bleeding heavily and it's a very early miscarriage. So bummed, but I'm glad to know that I can get pregnant at least. Super le suck. Now I'm wondering if I've got a progesterone deficiency? I have a sort luteal phase and now the early miscarriage, so I'm going to talk to my midwife when I meet with her soon.
I just had tea and a walk in the park with FTMPapa. It was so fun! Now I wish we actually lived closer together and make it a regular thing. Alas...
It was fun! I miss Toronto!
It's true! We did! E is SUPER LE CUTE!!! Such a sweet child! Even if he is slightly terrified of my doggies.
Milletpuff, I am really sorry. I also got pregnant the first time and had an early miscarriage. It really, really, really blows.

(and oh, did i mention we're having twins?!?)
I am very frustrated; we're finally ready to start inseminating after a couple of setbacks (originally thought we'd start in April) and now my cycle is all messed up for some reason! I'm ALWAYS pretty regular (30-31 day cycle, O CD 15-17) but this month my temps were all over the place, I had really late EWCM, and AF is 6 days late. I don't know how to pinpoint ovulation when my cycle is so out of whack.
I've been told perhaps I O'ed late or not at all due to stress (my father passed away in late April, and there have been a number of other personal stressors). Any advice on how to make thing regulate again, or how to proceed in June (at home insemination w/ fresh sperm). I haven't done OPKs yet (just CM checking, BBT, and being aware of ovulation -- I usually have O pain) but I feel like I probably should now. BUT, when to start testing since no AF? I wonder if AF will come at all... it's very unsettling not to have when I'm usually so regular, TTC aside.
I'll bet the most useful advice will be to stop worrying already and relax. But I think you all know that is easier said than done. When you're ready, you're READY! Especially after waiting so long to GET ready. :P
Okay, enough venting. Thanks for reading.
