TMI post - heads up

This is the second night in a row that I can't get the hubs to have an 'o'.....wth!?!?!? I don't get it, wtf am I doing wrong or why the hell is this bnot working?!? 

Irritated at my hubby :-(

So tonight we were supposed to bd - to keep with the every other day schedule....well I guess he wasn't into it - so frustrating - we tried and the have up. This totally sucks! If I could get pregnant on my own it wouldn't bother me as much

What does the Bible say about miscarriage?

"Probably the most common question people ask after a miscarriage is "Why did this happen?" or "Why did God do this to me?" There are no easy answers to these questions. Indeed, there is no satisfying conclusion that we will ever come to as to why bad things happen to people, especially innocent children. We must understand that God does not take away our loved ones from us as some sort of cruel punishment. The Bible tells us that there is "no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1).

Miscarriages are usually caused by abnormal chromosome patterns in the fetus. When these abnormalities are detected, the growth is halted, and miscarriage is the result. In other instances, miscarriages are caused by uterine malformations, hormonal abnormalities, problems with the immune system, chronic infections, and illnesses. After thousands of years of sin, death and personal destruction, it should not surprise us that genetic disorders would eventually become commonplace.

The Bible does not comment specifically about spontaneous miscarriages. We can be sure, though, that God has compassion on those who have suffered through them. He cries and suffers with us, simply because He loves us and feels our pain. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, promised to send His Spirit to all believers so that we will never have to go through trials alone (John 14:16). Jesus said in Matthew 28:20, "And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

Any believer who has suffered a miscarriage should have faith in the glorious hope of one day seeing her child again. An unborn child is not only a fetus or a "piece of tissue" to God, but is one of His children. Jeremiah 1:5 says that God knows us while we are still in the womb. Lamentations 3:33 tells us that God "does not enjoy hurting people or causing them sorrow." Jesus promised to leave us with a gift of peace unlike any that the world can give (John 14:27).

Romans 11:36 reminds us that everything exists by God's power and is intended for His glory. Although He does not inflict suffering on us for punishment, He will allow things to come into our lives that we can use to bring glory to Him. Jesus said, "I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world" (John 16:33)."

Ok cycle we go!!

So we are at the beginning I'm on CD8 of my 9th cycle of TTC....BD last night and we will every other night until AF comes or we get a bfp :) plus why not it's fun! No testing or tempting again this month - just putting our faith in God and letting him take it from there. 

Going to do my best not to over analyze everything - I'm not a symptom spotter anyways, symptoms are symptoms and if you over think them then you are just going to drive yourself nuts anyways so why do it?? We have a lot going on this month, moving, family visiting from out of state, back surgery and work events. I am very thankful for the busy schedule this way I won't have time to drive myself or my hubby nuts. And like I said what's the point of going crazy - it won't help the situation it can actually mess everything up so why do it. 

Last cycle I went 9 days late before AF showed up, NOT normal at all and it was a very light and easy period so I am hoping that this month goes a little smoother and we get back to the normal cycle days. If not ok we will just continue to BD enjoy it and see what happens :) 

GL to everyone out there fx!!


Finally AF is here!! she is late and very light but the cramps all line up. Now we can get ready for next cycle, needs to happen quickly. Husbands back surgery is on June 23 so we need to get at it :-) 

No clue...very strange

So today I've have very very very light spotting, I'm 20dpo and 8 days late. Could I count this as AF, or am I super screwed up this month? Supposed to ovulate around june 11....not sure if that will happen?

When to call the doctor....

Hey af still isn't here and every test is still negative. I'm a week late tomorrow, so I'm wondering when to call the dr to see if we can kick start af? I'm usually a 30 cycle so this is very strange for us. Hubby is still saying "what do you mean you still don't have your period but we're not can that be?" 

i just tell him, our bodies just suck like that :-) 


FertiliTea - does it really work or just another gimmick?.


Still nothing...

So….I’m on CD34, 17dpo and 5 days late today….what a fun, fun day! Still zero signs of anything happening. No symptoms of AF or a little peanut. So I’ll test tomorrow and see what comes up if anything. Once I hit one week late I’ll call the dr and see what she thinks. Never been this late before – haven’t changed anything that might make AF late, but it could just be my crazy body doing whatever it feels like doing. I can’t control that as much as I want to be able to. Hubby told me the other day that there’s no way we are pregnant this month, I’d love nothing more than to prove him wrong ;-) we shall see. I’m a little more tired than normal, going to bed around 9:00 which is not normal but we’ve been busy and I’m not sleeping that great so I don’t think that helps. Had a few crazy dreams lately but again I feel like it’s because I’ve been so tired that I just crash and crash hard.


Who knows….I’d love that BFP though, and I know you’re not out until you’re out…we shall see.

Why do we set ourselves up.....VENT

I know that this time around I’m not supposed to be all stressed out about baby and all that goes with it, I’m not tempting or ovulation testing just seeing how it goes. I’m around 16dpo (guessing – based on past cycles when I have tested) and a BFN again this morning. AF is 3 days late still no signs or symptoms of anything so this has been a fun month. I’ve been like clockwork since I got off the pill back in 2010, so it’s strange and annoying all at the same time.

Why do we set ourselves up for disappointment each and every month, why is it so stink’n easy for people to have all of these ‘oops’ babies – I don’t like that term but you know what I mean – it’s just crazy to think that teenagers are getting pregnant and 30 year olds can’t seem to figure it out - WTH?? Why do I put so much on a 20% chance each month, even if the stars align and everything is planned out perfectly it still doesn’t seem to happen….I don’t understand it and I know that I never will and I know that every time someone gets ‘surprised’ at the fact they are pregnant I want to give them the sex and babies speech – HELLO….Sex Ed anyone?!?!

It’s so frustrating at times – I wasn’t supposed to test until Saturday (per hubby) but then I got it in my head well what if it’s a positive then I can plan some really neat and memorable way to let him know that we are finally going to have a kid….nope BFN (again). AF is just deciding to be late and annoying and allowing me to get my hopes up with nothing happening.


UGH! – vent over, thanks for listening!
