@Amanda - I'm sorry to hear that you had a breakdown :( Unfortunately, I am all too familiar with them and how much of a test TTC is. Travel therapy sounds great, and I hear you, I'm so glad DH and I booked our cruise for July... because obviously we aren't pregnant and I would kick myself if I wouldn't have booked it!! Try and stay positive, I know it's hard, but you have to help get you through! It also helps to have an amazing DH, which I know you do, who will help you get to where you both want to be. HUGS and FX your TTC journey isn't very long :)


 


AFM - I'm on CD12 of Cycle#11 :'( Waiting patiently to O over here, I had a complete mental breakdown on Friday. I'm talking complete hyperventilating, sobbing, feeling utterly hopeless Friday night. DH is incredible and walked me through it, and I'm feeling much better now!! I know this is going to be THE cycle (of course, I say that every time :P) or maybe next month since my dream said I will be due 4/24/14 LOL.


But... DH and I talked and if we don't get PG this month or next, we will take a little break and then do some testing... of course that will probably all change and really depend on the next two cycles... I don't know if I want to break or just get it over with and find out what's going on. But for right now I'm taking pregnitude and my fertilitea - along with my castor oil packs and praying this is it!! :)

Seems like a rough month for everyone. I'm on CD 1, again. Didn't get to the testing phase cus AF showed right on time and I have decided i'm not wasting money on tests just to be repeatedly dissappointed. So no more testing unless AF is late. Starting cycle #4 of clomid but quickly losing hope that anything will work. However, we will keep trying and will probably see an RE after the new year (don't want to start all that over the holidays and need time to save up since my insurance sucks).

AFM- I went to the DR yesterday she did some test to check my hormones, though my test in december showed everything was going good. I started spotting yesterday, I only had one normal period in May after depo, and now I am spotting not sure if that's a good thing, I went ahead and started fertilaid today so hopefully I start getting a period and ovulating. CROSSING MY FINGERS.


I am sending you ladies, @ kwoodrn, kristen, athena tons of baby dust!!!!!

@ Kristen ~ I'm sorry you had a bad day :-(  That is never fun to hear about or experience.  I'm glad your DH is being your rock.  I know it's hard on them too, but then step up when they know they need to.  Just keep happy & positive thoughts, and your upcoming cruise should help with that!  So happy you two decided to do that :-)


@ KWoodrn ~ I hear you on testing.  I see why you want to be eager, but tests are so expensive (I want to use the pharmacy ones only) so I'm going to try to always hold off too.  It's only cycle # 4 so don't lose hope yet!


@ MK ~ good luck with AF!  Are you cramping?  Maybe the spotting is a sign she's on her way.  I know what you're going through, the time when you really want AF to show up.  Glad you're going to your dr.


@ Nenyibabs ~ at least a new cycle can get underway.

@ Athena: it is cycle #4 on clomid. We have been TTC for a year now. I think when you get into the years instead of months phase it's just mentally hard cus I know the statistics and rates of conception decrease after a year. However it has only been 7cycles ttc since my mc. Every cycle just seems like forever at this point

I'm so sorry that everyone is having a tough month:(


@athena: good luck on your first cycle coming up! Try not to get to discouraged before you even start...I hope the travel therapy isn't even necessary, and that your TTC journey is a super short one.


@Kristen: I so feel ya. I've had many moments when it just feels like this whole thing isn't fair, and it just shouldn't be this hard. But you can take comfort in knowing you're doing all that's in your power to do at this point. I just know that your dream is true, and you'll have your BFP here soon. FX that you O soon...I need some company in the 2WW. Lol.


@KWood: So sorry to hear cycle 3 on clomid was a bust. I totally understand where you're coming from on the testing front...it's so hard to wait, but another part of me expects bad news and doesn't want to know until AF shows her ugly face. FX that this is your month!


@MK: Hope your tests all come back normal, and that your fertilitea does the trick:)


@neny: So sorry that AF had to go and make her unwelcome appearance!


AFM, I'm 8DPO today, so week one of the 2WW is over. I'm trying to concentrate on the little fellow joining our family in a few weeks (see puppy post!), and get our house puppy-proofed and ready for his adorable self. It's really something to look forward to! DH and I feel like little kids. Lol. I just can't wait to be a fur mommy again:)
