Does your body change when your about to ovulate?? My period has just finished down there feels different. More discharge (before I went on the pill I had a really short cycle) and since I stopped my pill my period came nearly 2 weeks early.
It should stay roughly the same. On an odd occasion it might change by one day, but that's usually the one thing you can rely on to stay the same.
How does everyone keep positive while ttc?
I'm getting really stressed and anxious about it and am not interested in DtD like at all?
I'm just convinced it's not our month so I've already given up. Which will probably mean my negative thoughts will mean I won't get pregnant.
I keep reading all these stories saying we stopped trying and got pregnant. Does trying really inhibit you from getting pregnant?
If your thermometer was on the way out it might have given you a few temps that weren't quite right too? That's happened to me before! 😣

Ironically, I was way more stressed and anxious when we first started trying. The first 6 months I got depressed every month that it didn't work. By the time we'd been trying for a few years of let it go. It was almost like once I'd let go of the fantasy I had of it all happening straight away I could get on with life. I charted temps and knew when my fertile time was, we DTD often anyway and I tried to stop obsessing over TTC. These days, I'm less stressed about whether it will happen doing IVF than I ever was TTCing naturally. Not saying everyone feels like that, I know they probably don't.
In answer to your question about how I kept positive - I got interested in other projects. We started a massive backyard renovation, had a couple of holidays etc and I stopped making my whole life about TTC. In other words, I focused on other things
