Update

Well my plan to put ttc on hold did not work out so well. I did good for about a month then was over it. I talked to my GYN and he agree to put me on clomid. I was O'ing on my own but pretty late in my cycle and I was concerned about low progesterone and it is thought to help. So I started that this cycle, 50mg CD 5-9, O'd on CD 19. Didn't have too many side effects besides the hot flashes. I'm now 8dpo and I don't know if this is from the clomid causing a stronger O and higher progesterone or if I'm getting sick or what but two days ago I woke up with a weird sunburn looking rash under my left arm (which I've never had before) then developed a dry/scratchy throat that same day. I've been super tired but I'm pretty sure that is because I hurt my neck and haven't been sleeping well. My temp went from 98.6 5DPO to 98.2 then spiked up to 99.1 so the rash may be due to my elevated body temp. DH is worse than I am about thinking everything new with me is a pregnancy sign. I'm trying to stay in the mentality "if it happens it happens" and not expect anything.Trying to hold off on testing until at least 10dpo but hopefully I'll have the willpower to wait until AF is late. I'm so sick of wasting hpt. So that's me in a nutshell for the past couple months. GL to all you ttc girls that have yet to test and congrats to those who have gotten thier bfp's in these last two months

I know how hard it is to read into every little thing and want to believe and also not want to get your hopes up. I hope you get your BFP soon! *HUGS*

Glad you're back ttc! :) Hopefully you won't have to take clomid/progesterone for too much longer. ;) ....Sending lots of baby dust your way! :)

Oh gosh, the 2WW is the worst, isn't it? We all try not to symptom spot, but it's so hard not to. You can't help but notice what goes on in your own body. Good luck, only a few more days! FX for you:)

I hate the damn 2ww! I am so impatient. I know my luteal phase has to be a certain length to even make it possible to get pregnant but if i'm not prego I want to get on with the next cycle. It really doesn't help that EVERYONE around me is prego either, and not just at work. I know 8 people that are expecting including DH's sister and two cousins, plus two more that recently delivered. This last weekend was my cousin's baby shower(the one who is due a week after I was but will probably be induced ON my due date) so that was rough. Just so tired of waiting for it to be "my time" and sick of people telling me to "just relax". Nobody I know has had any problems so they really have no idea what it's like to wany children sooo bad and not be able to have them. Ok, pity party over :-)

Omg, I understand completely. I hate being told to "just relax" or my favorite, "just stop thinking about it, and it'll happen". Right. And just how, praytell, am I supposed to do that? Just flip off this overpowering desire to have a child? Not happening. Especially coming from people who got pregnant by accident or on their first try. They have no clue what it feels like to keep trying month after month and get progressively more discouraged each time.


And I'm so sorry for your loss, that must be really tough having your cousin due at the same time you would've been. Hopefully this is your month, and you can have something to celebrate too:) Best of luck to you, dear. And lots of baby dust!
