I just o'd yesterday and the wait is already killing me! It'll be the 29th or 30th before I can even think about testing, and I have no idea how I'm going to make it. This has been the most promising cycle in the 13 months we've been trying, and I'm super-hopeful about it. Every little twinge or feeling in my abdomen is suspect to scrutiny AND I'M ONLY 1DPO!!<br><br>
On the lighter side, DS embarrassed DH and I at the bank yesterday. The teller was approving us for a car loan and she smiled at DS and said, "Only one? No brothers or sisters?" DH smiled and said, "No, but hopefully soon." Without looking up from his coloring book, and with perfect grammar DS said, "They're working on it." We were floored. We both turned red and burst out laughing. Sigh. Sometimes this kid is just too much!<br><br>
Anyway, do you ladies have any tips on getting through this anxious time? It's never been this bad before and I don't want to put too much pressure on myself for a BFP, but I'm going crazy and know that no matter what I do, I'm pretty invested in this cycle's efforts.<br><br>
We've been using Shettles for a girl for 13 months, and this is the first month that I have not been bf and timing has been perfect. I've had a lot more ewcm and I'm doing all the good things I should be doing to take care of myself while TTC: eating well, exercising, taking prenatals, no alcohol, and getting as much sleep as DS allows. Please, please PLEASE let this be the month!

Big hugs to you! I'm in the same boat at 4 dpo, everything is a sign! I do NOT have one single pregnancy test in my house. I will not buy one until like 12 dpo. I'm trying not to even think about it until then, but if I do, I try to distract myself by playing with dd or the kitty, or I'll take a walk, take a drive around the block, do some yoga, read a good book, or watch a movie.

I know the feeling! I will be testing on the 28th so here is hope for a bfp! What a cute story about your son! Anyway, Distract Yourself - not with preggo sites or TLC baby story shows, lol. (Speaking from experience.) Babies will come when they are destined to come. I truly believe that. I just forget it alot.

Stay busy! It's so frustrating, I know, but sometimes it helps me to get out of the house and stay away from the computer. Get a good book and start getting into it. Or start a project. Your timing is good, you've done everything you can do. Staring at your chart or constantly refreshing mdc won't help you know any faster (and I say that b/c I've sooooo been there)!<br><br>
I hope this is it for you! Good luck!<br><br>
ps. what your DS said is so cute! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Your DS is so adorable!! That will a moment remembered forever. All the PP had great advice and mine would be the same. Just keep yourself busy. I am CD 25 and O yet so I kinda know how you feel. I was going crazy at the beginging of the month so now I am refinishing my table and chairs!! Next I am going to touch up all the wood trim in my house. Maybe do like a scrap book for DS or learn to cook a new food. Find a tv series that you liked and never watched and rent a couple of seasons of it from blockbuster that will keep you busy for a few days anyway.<br><br>
I know its hard here is some dust for you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/coolshine.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sunshine">
