Thanks, Dana!

Please be honest, am I out if I ovulated on Saturday? We didn't BD the right times. I don't know how I could have ovulated then as I ALWAYS have O'd two days after a positive OPK and on Saturday my cervix was low and closed (TMI, but doing it doggie style hurt cuz he kept hitting my low cervix) and I didn't have fertile CM. *sigh* so disappointed... :roll:

So, I thought it might help to write out my experience with TTC naturally. I wrote the below paragraph just now. It's poorly written and probably has all types of spelling, grammar and punctuation errors along with typoes. But it was stream of consciousness and I don't have the energy or will to edit it tonight. But, I thought I would share as some of you may relate:

You live two weeks at a time... counting down the days until you ovulate. You feel like you've done something, and you're in control. Maybe this month it will happen. Then you wait two weeks to take the pregnancy test, but you probably don't make it that long. Every single thing you feel in your body you question whether it is a pregnancy symptom. You start to daydream about when and how you would tell your family members or friends, maybe even calculate the baby's due date. You google pregnancy symptoms and maybe even keep track with a list. Then once 9 days pass after ovulation you can't wait any longer and you wake up in the morning and pee on the stick. You know you should probably wait until your period arrives, but the tension is killing you and somehow it feels SO important to find our that you're pregnant as soon as you can--like it will make you happier. You go to do something for five minutes to distract yourself—like wash the dishes or clean something. Your heart is racing, pounding so hard. You are excited and scared. Maybe there will be a faint second line. You rush into the bathroom and look at the pee stick and don't see anything immediately. You're disappointed but still have hope—maybe the lighting isn't good. So, you put the test under a bright light and really squint to see if there is a second line. Nothing. You think, maybe not enough time has passed? Then you think, no, there's nothing there, throw it away. You do. You might pick it out of the trash a few times just to double check. At first you think you'll be strong. Whatever, maybe it's too early to test. But as the days go on and you test more and more you get more and more angry and frustrated and grumpy and feel hopeless. Then, when your period is late you get your hopes up again. You google people who didn't get a positive pregnancy test until really late. You get your hopes up. Then, finally, you use the bathroom and wipe and see some blood. Your period has come. You feel a deep sadness the rest of the day but you are also grateful that your period finally came and you are out of the stress of the “two week wait.” You wonder what the point is to keep trying, keep hoping, keep getting disappointed. You get discouraged. But, what's the alternative, give up and never get pregnant? That's the thing, it's not something you CAN really give up on. Give up on a baby? You can't do that—so you are dragged into the cycle over and over again. The hope and excitement and day dreams, the agony of disappointment, frustration, hard work and feeling like groundhog day, month after month. Your period is ending. You focus on planning. This month you will eat pineapple core during the days after ovulation. You will drink more water for your cervical mucus. Maybe those things will do the trick. So, you focus on planning and feeling like you can control your destiny, or that these things will make the difference between a baby and no baby this month. The days go on and you feel the strength to try again. You finally get a positive OPK and you get excited. Finally, I can DO something. I can control something. We can try again.

Whoz even if you did O on Saturday you are not out,you BD a day before and a few days before that im sure you had some spermies up there to wait for the egg,my opinion is best to BD before O than the day of.
I think we all can relate with what you wrote...we all been trough all of those moments,hugs don't let this get to you.
You need to be strong and calm!!

Hi.

Star good to hear from you.

Whoz what a great writing of what we all have went through. I really think either way you are ok. It's better to bd before o. Hang in there sweetie. Have you thought about going to dr for tests since you are a little over the year mark of ttc?

Well I took the digital this morning and it said not pregnant. I thought for sure with my betas being over 25 and fmu it'd show up. I'm not feeling much this morning. My frer is a little darker than yesterday. Internet cheapie sucks!! They are suppose to pick up a 10 and the lines are so faint on them. I think I'm just just going to wait to test anymore after tomorrow's blood work. I told dh he was in shock as well. It's slowly sinking in. We did tell our in laws. They didn't have the best reaction and hurt my feelings. My MIL later apologized and we are ok and they are excited they were just shocked as well. It made me not want to tell anyone else. So we may just chill for awhile. I feel like I don't know what to do with myself now. I just had been stuck in ttc mode for so long. and was never expecting it to really happen. Don't get me wrong I'm thrilled Its just taking me time to adjust to the other side of things. I'm afraid of something going wrong so it's like I'm afraid to get attached yet. I know that sounds stupid but I'm terrified of that happening after it taking me this long to get pg. I mean several of you have gotten pg after a long time and lost it so I'm sure you know the feeling.

Remy Aina Bryant was born at 9:15 PM on February, 5th 2017, she weighed 6 lbs 15 oz and was 19.1 inches long.

It was a long hard labor because my epidural wore off and I tore in different areas and required plenty of stitches, but I would not trade the pain because out of it came the most beautiful blessing in the world to me.

I see some things have happened here in the last two days as well! We get to leave the hospital later today and then I will be sure to come back and read more about what you guys have been up to! Thank you all for the well wishes for Remy and I!

I went ahead and took the clear blue Plus regular bc I took one yesterday. Here's yesterday and today. It's definitely darker.

Danaa glad you were able to eat something else. Are you getting energy back? I feel like laying around but bored doing it. I have a cold with a really sore throat.

Star how are you doing?

Andi and loz and faith how are you guys?

Fly, congratulations! I can't believe you are "with it" enough to message all of us. Thank you for the priviledge! She is so tiny and I bet so cute. Can't wait for pictures!

Star, I love how you called Dana's babies "my twins." So cute. How are you doing? How's the house? How is your mindset these days?

Andi, what's going on with you?

Nicky, you are SO good at personals. I hope IUI would work for you!

Wish, we still think of you. I hope the miscarriage went okay.

Momma, I TOTALLY get what you feel like with being worried about this baby because it's been so long, but being in shock and excited but tentative as well. I totally get that. You are welcome to share any thoughts/feelings you have with us! I am sorry you didn't get the best reaction from your MIL. When will you tell the kids?

Dana, have you been craving anything in particular? Have you thought about decorating a nursery? Any more thoughts about where you want to give birth?

AFM, we have a snow storm today. Very pretty. Plus, the Pats pulled off a crazy superbowl win.

I love you all!

Courtney: Its ok to feel this way! I am praying for a sticky bean for you! The test looks fantastic. Waiting to hear about your betas now.

Whoz: Thats really well worded. We have all been through these phases. Quite a number of times. Fxing you have caught the egg this time..And thank you for your wishes.

Fly: Huge Congratulations! And a warm welcome to Remi. Sorry, you had a hard labor. But glad that you get to go home soon..Relax Mama! Time to create new memories.

Star: Welcome bk. How have you been? Hows house shaping up? U were supposed to shift sometime after mid Feb, i think. Absolutely adored how you mentioned, 'my twins'.

Danaa: Thank you so much for the new page. Highly required. Hoping you are still managing to eat something. Take rest.

Andi, Wish, Faith, Angela: Hoping you girlz are doing good too.

AFM, i had my day 8 scan today. And it seems fine for day 8. So on clomid 100 mg, i have 2 dominant follicles, one in each ovary. Have been called for another scan day after tomorrow. My uterine lining, though three layered, was at 4-5 mm. Which my doc said will def increase.
