View Full Version : this is killing me
dp and i made our third attempt this month (at home insem) and dp's AF is due in about 3 days. the suspense is killing me. i got horribly depressed after it didn't work the last two months but the doc reckons she's fertile and everything so theoretically it should work within 6 months. it's making me go nuts and i just want to know NOW! arrgh!!!!!!!!!!!!! :geek:
Hope you don't mind me jumping in because I'm not a same sex parent(SSP).
I just wanted to send some :hugs::hugs::hugs:. TTC is a hard journey, and I can only imagine how much harder it would be when you also need to co-ordinate an additional person into the mix.
I do know some SSP who have had multiple children through home insem, so whilst it may take a few trys, you will get there.
Hang in there, chin up. Try as hard as you can to keep your mind busy all weekend and come monday you should :fingerscrossed: be getting some news either way(and hopefully a BFP!).
Must be such a challenging journey for you - fingers crossed that things go well for you both!
thanks guys lol yeah i don't mind you're straight :) she won't test until AF is actually late, which is fair enough, it's just ultra painful actually waiting til then. i'm not good at waiting for things this big and important. gonna try and start a 3000 word essay draft is due wednesday and i haven't done anything on it so :/ hopefully i can keep myself busy with that. damn i hope it worked
Ah yes, study is a great distraction. I have 2000 words to do by this Wednesday - Take home exams are wonderful things. :)
What are you studying?
i'm gonna be a library technician :) what are you doing?
I'm studying social work. :)
im sending u girls heaps of positive vibes, i soooo understand ure journey, having been trying for a while now :)
Fingers crossed that this is the time for you ladies!
still no bloody result and i'm still feeling all depressed, which seriously gets in the way of writing assignments. some possible signs but two BFNs, the latest one just this morning. begged DP to test again on sunday because i can't possibly wait til wednesday (our first attempt AF came about 10 days late and wednesday takes us about there. there weren't nearly as many signs that time though). she said tests cost too much but you can get a not too bad one for less than $10 so. AF is already a few days late. despite everything i'm holding out hope. :fingerscrossed:
How are you girls going?Sending:babydust2: your way.
thanks :( AF is a week late either tomorrow or tuesday and this morning's test was negative. at risk of repeating myself she's been cramping (not quite AF-like) and nausea for the last week or so. it's in my ttc diary- can't wait to have a baby.
Just wanted to wish you good luck - i know that it can be a long and frustrating journey!
Just wanted to wish you good luck & give you some :hugs: :hugs:
Green Mum to be
Just wanted to send my thoughts and best wishes to you both!!!
TTC is a hard journey but hopefully you wont be on it for too long... most of the couples that i know trying it with insem are pregnant so just need to hang in there for a little while longer!
A tip: buy ovulation tests and pregnancy tests off ebay. THey are cheap and work well!

How are you working out when ovulation is???
It is really unusual that you are late and yet negative test. it does happen that you could be pregnant but you could also be getting your O date incorrect.
Might be something to look at!
we used pee sticks to work out when o happened. going by her normal cycle af should've arrived about 11 days ago. maybe she's just one of those women who don't get a bfp on a home test until several weeks in. she wants to know as badly as i do (partly so she can give the old cigarettes a flick cos apprently the will power isn't there until the baby is. damn smokers i will never understand them) but now she wants to wait til af is two weeks late which takes us to wednesday to go to the doctor.
reason i think for that is that our first cycle af was ten days late and we made an appointment and af arrived that afternoon. also she says she gets more excited about the fact that she could be pregnant every day that she doesn't know. doesn't make much sense to me but she's the one who's probably pregnant so i'm effectively on the outside here, i can't do much about it.
AND AND AND the last two bfns (including the one this morning) were using first response. i thought that was supposed to be a good brand :confused:
I hope you get a positive result :)
Just to tell you a little of my experience with my first..I took numerous HPT all the brands you could think of & had 2 blood tests which all came back negative..then finally when I was 8 weeks (a week after the last BT) I got a +ve on a POAS so got sent for more bloods
so it can take a while for the hormone to build up? cos i'm getting worried that dp's body is just trying to trick us. and the longer we're hanging thinking 'is it isn't it' the further there is to fall.. and i land really hard.
gives me a bit of hope though that it may not even show up for a doc yet but might still be there thanks mumtobe! :)
well i dont know exactly why it didnt show up until later..but I went on to have a normal & healthy pregnancy :D
I hope you have a similar story :hugs:
