Glad I am not the only one!
Excellent! I managed to sleep in for another 30 minutes this morning with my hips in the air! So romantic this TTC business!!
I have never been so excited to know my body has decided to cooperate with me for once!!
Thanks so much for your advise and help J
Yep, J- you're awesome!
Waiting: I think I will test on tues morning.
I will be at work and even though I will only be around kids when they call, the mental preparation is good.
Anyone like me? I can no longer imagine what it would be like to see 2 lines. I can only see one...hence scared to test, I want two so badly.
Woo Hoo Sevven! Congratulations, fx for a healthy and happy 9 months
Bubbles, Good luck with your appointment today.
MCB, Yay for your body cooperating! get busy
Rainbow, what day is your bt? I would test in the morning, as I am a control freak!!!! I would want to know if it was likely to be negative so that I was prepared for the bad news. BUT I totally understand why you would not want to know too. Sorry not really much help. GOOD LUCK
butterfly and MWL, My DH is the same very low libido, and around o time I seem to wear him out quite quickly so usually bd twice in my fertile period and sometimes may get to scrape a third in if I am lucky. Unfortunately, although DH wants to make a baby he is not interested in actively ttc and having s3x solely to make a baby, so he is not willing to set days to dtd as he thinks it will take the fun away. (he knows that I am using opk's and that we do bd a lot more during my fertile time, I think he just does not want to know about any of it)
There is also the added factor that he suffers pretty bad with anxiety and a little depression, so although he really wants a baby, he is TOTALLY petrified that his anxiety will make him a bad father, so he is really scared at the same time. Add in the anti anxiety meds he is on which i believe decreases sex drive and ttc suddenly becomes a little more difficult (sorry for rambling, ramble over)
Butterfuly, fx for you this month that timing works out perfectly to make a sticky little bubba
MWL, I feel your pain having to give up when you are sending out all the signals. SO FRUSTRATING
mumofprincess, its so easy for people to say stop stressing, yet so inconsiderate. I really think that sometimes people just say what first comes to them and don't think about it at all.
J, I was going to say the same think about you that Channy and Mumsical have! I was reading away last night in bed thinking wow J is so thoughtful and helpful to all these hubbers and the advice she gives is always so honest open and considerate. Your input and kindness is invaluable around here and I am sure puts many minds at ease when it is most needed, and helps so many ladies to make informed decisions
afm, still waiting to o! this month feels like its going really slow already and I am only CD8 not due to o until cd 15 or 16
MrsLA my BT is on Tuesday. Will be 17dpo! But the crinone makes my period delayed so even if I make it to the BT (like every other time) it means squat.
I'm leaning towards testing that morning, but maybe after my bosses leave so I can not go to work looking like I've been crying.
I cant even imagine 2, I am so used to that stark white space when I test so many times every cycle, I cant even imagine what two would look like in real life.
AND I'm only up to cycle 4, ladies who have been ttc for a long time, I can not imaging how it must feel
J - go and look at the "posters you mostly agree with thread" - you've got a few mentions **warm fuzzies*. Sorry I can't link if here on my phone
Rainbow - yes I was the same before my last bfp because it had been 14 months since my last bfp (also ended in m/c) so I totally understand.
Now I'm the opposite, petrified of seeing 2 lines because the last 2 times have been so stressful!
I'm glad it's not just me.
I am totally irrational and tend to think if I can't imagine it, it must be because it won't happen
Also, hugs for you waiting. You really deserve a sticky one.
