Sorry Chall!!!!!! :grouphug:

LK where are you at?

I'm 12DPO, AF due Wed and I got another BFN this morning. Almost positive that AF is coming. Boobs stopped hurting, now I just feel bloaty/crampy. I am using a box of blue dye tests...and I heard those are generally wonky so I may run to CVS and grab some pink dye tests just because I still have a glimmer of hope until :af: comes.

Hi ladies,

I'm on CD17, haven't done an OPK and am trying not to let ttc take over. I was so sad after u/s and I think it was weighing on my DH, so am going to just wait it out and we will just make love when the moment is right. We have been praying and will continue to do so. I go in on Friday for my CD21 blood work to see if did O and if not, fill my scrip for provera and clomid. My grandmother is in ICU and we went to say our goodbyes tonight so it's been a very rough day. :(

sorry trying.. but you aren't out yet! One of my best friends even took her first hpt the day af was due and got bfn, three days later her hubby made her take another and she got her bfp. :) I saw keep waiting til af shows or you see that positive!!! Praying for you ladies!!! I know when the time is right, we will all be blessed greatly!

LK, I'm so sorry about your Grandma. :hugs:

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm kinda mentally done with the 2WW drama and voluntarily getting off the rollercoaster, so to speak. Not in a negative way. Just getting ready for the likelihood that AF is coming and if for some reason I get a BFP then I'll be very pleasantly surprised. Especially in light of what you are going through, it's good to remember that although TTC seems like the most important thing in the world...it's more important to be thankful what we already have and the health of the people we love. When I think about it that way I know I can wait one more month for a BFP!! :hb:

It has put things in perspective for me as well. I am going to enjoy every minute with those I love and continue to pray to be blessed with children, but will continue to cherish those around me and love on other people's children until then :)
I also think there is something to the surprise of that BFP. I know if I temped and saw the rise after o and the drop before af showed it would kill me every month anytime it adjusted a little! Kind of want to go back to the old fashioned way of making a baby through love :) just me though. Definitely not judging anyone for their methods, just going to do the meds that will help me ovulate and not obsess the rest. If these meds don't work next month - I won't do RE, I'll just surrender and pray I will be a mom :)

Ya, choosing not to temp or track CM or CP. I think that would make me feel loco. Luckily I'm regular and can feel when I'm ovulating so it's not necessary for me. I like the suspense a little, lol....although at 13DPO I'm just ready to move on if it ain't happening! Though, I guess if I were temping I wouldn't get hopes up as much?! I'm keeping things pretty natural on my end as well...DH is going to start working out this cycle so I'm hoping that'll give his swimmers that extra push we need!!! :fertilization:
