    Default Annoyed about feeling disappointed

    It took a while to fall pregnant with DD and it was a really tough time for us, so I never expected it to be easy this time. But I had a laparoscopy in Sept, DHs swimmers are better than they ever have been in previous tests, our timing was perfect this cycle and I even had a few signs that we might have been successful... But I just saw the slightest hint of AF

    I really didn't want to get wrapped up in TTC this time. I hated the constant ups and downs last time and don't want to go through it again. So I'm annoyed with myself for feeling so disappointed and upset.

    How on earth am I going to be able to cope with TTC all over again??

    I hate TTC. Big hugs! Are you due for AF yet? I wish I knew how to not think about TTC, sure would make things easier!

    I don't really know when AF is due. Before DD my LP was always 12 days. Now it seems to vary which is weird. It was about 9 days last cycle and if tomorrow is CD1 that would give me an 11 or 12 day LP this time.

    I wish I knew how to distract myself! I hate the anticipation and that horrible surge of disappointment when AF arrives.

    I'm seriously considering doing ovulation tracking through the fertility clinic to help take some of the guess work out of it, or trying IUI in the new year. With DHs issues our chances are pretty low doing it naturally. Just need to get DH to agree to it as he's in denial about having less than perfect swimmers.

    Oh poor guy! How are you tracking your ovulation? OPKs or whatnot? Could what you think is AF be implantation or anything?

    I'm using OPKs and I also have quite strong ovulation symptoms (bloating, cramps, CM etc) so its almost impossible to miss it.

    I don't think this is implantation, I have all the signs of AF and no breast tenderness which was the most obvious symptom when I fell pregnant with DD (and also for the pregnancy I lost before DD).

    I just have to deal with it... and have a glass of wine tonight!

    Tell me about it. I'm not actively TTC at the moment (have appt with FS in Feb) but I still can't help wondering if the slightest twinge might have been ovulation etc. Hard not to get obsessed when it means so much to us!

    I guess that's it, it's hard not to get invested in it because it's such a huge thing. I'm trying to focus on DD and how lucky I am to have her. Also, every failed month is another month older DD will be when #2 arrives which will hopefully make life easier.

    Also those memories of how **** you felt at the end of each cycle when AF showed wouldn't be helping. Not looking forward to that again myself. I always cheered myself up by eating heaps of soft cheese

    Ive been TTC baby #1 for 16 months with no success. Got diagnosed with PCOS last week, so am now on Metformin and a waiting list to get in and see a gyno. Not trying at the moment because I need to lose some weight and DF and I are having a gigantic fight that we may not come out of okay. But hey, thats life!! Im having myself a little party tonight with a bottle of vodka!
