Late weekly check in :: Week of July 15

Hi ladies, I've been MIA, but I've just got back from vacation and so anxious. How are you all doing!? 


 


AFM - This is my first TTC cycle and I am so nervous/anxious/sick and a wee bit excited. We've been buidling toward this for months right? I want it to happen right away, but I don't. EH. I mean, I want to raise a child with DH. Pregnancy/labor scares me, not being able to get pregnant scares me too. I'm gutted and confused and now I have a belly ache. I want to keep putting off the BD but I want it to happen quickly. I wish that the stork that delivers the baby bundle of joy actually exsisted. Ugh.


I am CD8, FF says my forcasted fertile days are July 21-23 and forcasted O days are July 24-26. I have some OPKs and I'm not exactly sure when to start using them. Should I already be?


Oh and my AF has been wonky. It came 3 days late and was super light again. I'm trying to keep in mind what many of you have said about AF lightening as we get older. I had about a full day of light flow and then spotting for 2/3ish days.


Ughhhh belly ache and anxiety go away! (Do any of you feel like this sometimes? Please tell me I'm not alone!?)

Hi Nicole!  Eeek, exciting!! :-)  BUT I totally hear you.  The week before I O I had serious butterflies in my stomach if I thought about it for more than a few seconds.  Like "this is it, I'm actually a married woman consciously deciding to MAKE a baby!".


I read your AF post and didn't comment because I felt like the weirdo.  I get AF for 5 days a cycle and have one good.  solid.  HEAVY.  AF day.  Then 2-3 medium and the others light.  But relating it to the age thing, when I was a teenager I'd have DAYS of HEAVY, so I guess 5 days with 1 heavy is "light" for me.  ? 


AFM: Officially on TTC cycle #2.  It's crazy how quickly the first one passes by.  We didn't put too much effort into it, because we still want to keep it fun for now.  BUT we definitely used some smart strategies and we should have had a really good chance.  I think I have issues, I just can't pinpoint it exactly without medical help.  Luteal phase issues.  Maybe I just had a cyst (OMG, 2DPO-CD2 was no fun and I was CRYING yesterday in pain!).  I think we're in for the long haul with my "issues".  Poor DH though, he admitted last night he was gutted we weren't successful.  He just wants a baby and to know we both can do it easily on our own.  I have long cycles, so I think we'll be DTD until the end of July when I should be "fertile" for BD.  LOL.  DTD is WAY funner than BD, because you don't have to worry about rules.  BD is still fun and satisfying, you just have to keep those rules in mind and not get too carried away... True story! ;-)

Seriously, it's like I've been told my whole life up until now not to get pregnant, and here we are trying. Thanks, I totally needed to hear that from someone! Also, for now I'll try not to stress about AF, sounds like everyone is different so I guess as long as she shows her face I should try not to worry yet. (and you're so not a weirdo!)


GL with Cycle 2, FX and baby dust. I'm glad you're having fun with it, that's what it's all about right!? I know it's easier said than done but stay positive, you never know, it might happen quicker than you thought!

@Nicole: I know,right? Its like, years of hearing, 'dont do it' has finally engraved itself on my subconcious. I still feel a little self concious thinking about announcing the BFP to my mum. EEEK!!


FX for more BFPs. The more the merrier, I say.
