It's amazing to find a place where so many people are accurately describing how I feel each month. We tried this month somewhat - AF should be here on the 26th but maybe I'll get lucky?

Sorry for those of you who are out! I'm out as well. But the good news is that my cycle made a lot more sense this month. The months before I was all over the place. AND I have been exercising regularly for 6 weeks now with my new gym buddy. On to May...

Good luck to the rest of you!

Sorry Jojosliving :( and good luck Rachel.

As for me, not going to give the play by play. TTC is such an up and down thing. I'm just going to keep trucking and I'll update later on with the outcome. I'm trying to teach myself to remain positive no matter what. Difficult for my pessimistic self. :)

Baby dust to all that are still in!

Trying to keep myself realistic so I don't get too disappointed. My chart is very confusing.. had some bad temps and sleep has been rough for some reason. I'm leaning toward 7dpo, but could be 5dpo. I had some cramping last night and some weird pains the day before that. I've never really had that before. Today my temp did take a bit of a dive, so I'm crossing my fingers that it goes back up tomorrow.

Stay positive everyone. I know that is easier said than done. As we all commiserate together over how tough this process can be. I've been struggling staying positive about it all. It's hard tiring and depressing at times. Especially when there are new babies all around you. I love that there is all these new little ones, just wish it was my turn.

I know you all can understand as many have been on this journey as long as me or longer.

Today is 12 DPO praying it's my turn, for once I feel like we had great timiing....but life will continue if it is not and other options will be explored........Lots of reflecting lately....

Baby dust to you all!!!!!!!!!!!!! May your bundles of joy come quickly!!!!!!!!!!!

CD14 today...still waiting to confirm O. My husband had his yearly visit with our GP and she actually wrote a script today for him to get a SA. I was kinda happy for that because it will get that out of the way, even though we did one of the ones you find at the drug store. lol I actually see her on the 15th and I'll probably discuss some with her. Starting a few days ago, I have been wrapping up my afternoons with some yoga poses that are for fertility and meditations for each cycle day. I'm hoping that once things start going with the doctor, and then maybe I get myself together, I can finally go to a specialist.

Thank you for your message Amproske. It is super tiring to be constantly taking some kind of pill, whether it is herbal or not, temping, opks, watching this and that. Knowing I'm not relaxed because of all of the above! I am not a relaxed type person as it is. I've tried meditation for other issues, and half the time I just start thinking about all the things I have to do, and then I realize, hey I'm not even relaxing and this person is invading my thinking! ha! I seriously think one thing I will do in the next few months is the acupuncture. I keep saying, I keep thinking about it, and I keep reading great things about it.

I admire you for your courage to tell yourself that you want to do other things to make your life happy. I try to do the same, but I keep getting in the way of myself. I understand the anger- I have been more angry this time than I have ever been before. While I know why there is anger, I'm not understanding why I am at the same time. If that even makes sense!

Anyway, thank you for sharing your struggles and feelings. To be honest, the time we didn't care about any of it was when we did get pregnant, but alas, it didn't stick. I'm not saying it couldn't happen again, but I think we feel more of an urgency now.

Gwenn, I know how you feel. How can you "relax" when sometimes all you can think about is "what is wrong with me, why can't I get pregnant?" Yes, stress is a factor, but that doesn't mean that yoga/meditation is the answer for everyone. That's something I learned on this journey is that for some people it is changing your diet, some it is medication, some it is more high-tech intervention, etc.
I am kind of like you in that I just want it to "happen". I don't want all this other stuff to think about. It took me months this time to finally get back on metformin. Maybe I am being stubborn. But I hate that I would need something to make something so 'natural' to happen.
On Saturday, CD1 I was so depressed about the whole thing. And ANGRY. I feel like I am doing everything I possibly can. And I know time is running out for us too.
I do know that I am tired of the whole thing. I can't keep doing this to myself. I try to "relax" but no matter what when I am expecting ovulation or AF I am on pins and needles.
So Saturday I decided that when I got home from errands etc. that I was going to get on the treadmill and walk away my feelings of sadness and then let myself take a hot relaxing bath. I have thought and thought about this TTC Journey and I think I am truly done. I am not going to go back on BC yet, but I am going to focus on doing other things right now. I want to start jogging again, maybe do a couple of 5ks before it gets 100 degrees here in Texas. At first I was really sad about this thinking because I wanted it to be "my decision" whether or not I was going to have another baby. But I know I am not in control and maybe that is my problem. (Sorry for getting spiritual here) I need to let go.
Who knows what the future holds. I am not closing the door but I am not going to keep standing in the door either. I am moving on as best I can.

CD6 here. Nothing really to report. lol Just having a difficult time with people. For example, there was someone at the service, who I met that day, and was an older man, who was asking "not your business" questions. I didn't reply in a bad way, but it just rubbed me the wrong way. I was angry inside, but I get that he was perhaps an "innocent" bystander. This is also not the first time this has happened to me and it gets old. Then I'm dealing with feelings about a friend of mine, who had a longer time to get pregnant, and now she has a child almost a year old. And I've never been ugly and I was always happy for her. But sometimes, I just get tired of always seeing these posts on Facebook about it all the time. So I am beginning to limit my time on social sites because I don't want to feel this way.

Last night, because I couldn't sleep, I was looking up fertility meditation, which some of these people swear by, but sometimes I just don't know. Of course, I know it would be a way to relax. I also looked up fertility yoga, which I know some of you practice. I found a site that gave some simple poses , which was nice. I guess I'm just grasping at straws here. I know I need to "just relax" as so many will say. I guess I'm just feeling like I'm just about 38 and my time is pretty limited. And then I'm sure that adds to the stress inside myself, which isn't good. Such a cycle!

Sorry for my debbie downer post. I just had to get this out of my system.

Hoping to get my BFP in April. We have only been trying since January, but it seems like everywhere I turn someone is pregnant and it is driving me crazy!
