Warning this is a downer/Rant against my fertility or seemingly lack there of post.
What do you do with your negative feelings about TTC? This last month we NTNP because of the back to back losses and when it came down to it, I couldn't stand to TTA. Today was CD 50. I am so frustrated. It makes me more upset that last months pregnancy wasn't viable, or the month before. Each day is another BFN since I don't have a clue if I O'd or not. I started testing nearly daily since CD 35. So each day AF doesn't show I am losing another chance to get pg. FF is stupid. If you miss your period it still keeps your future predicted O dates. So another reminder that I am out of another chance. If I would have had a cycle that would have been tomorrow or Monday. So to see 2 cycles without anything and my missing babies just makes me want to eat a lot of junk and sleep today. It doesn't help that it has been rainy and cold. So what would you do? BD and running are not helping.

I am so sorry. I say give in to whatever feels good, even if it s junk food and laziness, you could indulge yourself. TTC is a stressful, heartbreaking journey in which hours, days and months seem to crawl. Let yourself grieve a bit. A long cycle sucks! Also, vent to us.

Long cycles absolutely suck and I'm so sorry for your losses. That must be so frustrating not knowing if O has happened and here you are on CD 50. Be good to yourself. Indulge, take time for yourself to do something you love. When I realized things weren't looking good for me this month, I tried to focus on the few things I enjoy that I can't do when pregnant. It is actually helping me now, however I know sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn't. When all you want is to be pregnant it is hard to find things to fill its place while you wait. Definitely sleep, tomorrow is a new day I hope you awake feeling refreshed.

Good point, mama! Enjoy sushi, wine, beer, fancy unpasteurized cheeses, advil (ok, that one is a stretch), hot tubs, non leaking breasts! Woo hoo!

My last cycle was 60 days. I never figured out when I O'd. Sorry mama! Hope you get your BFP soon, and baby sticks.

Re: TTC 30+ April Showers hopefully brings May BFPs

Good morning, ladies! I had a - opk this am after 2 days of + but no obvious Ewcm and no thermal shift as if this am. Freaking out that this is an anovulatory cycle. Just gotta wait it out, I guess.

How's everyone else?

Re: TTC 30+ April Showers hopefully brings May BFPs

Morning all! I've been feeling nauseous the last 3 days--on and off the first two days then pretty much all day yesterday. Didn't feel like I was getting sick though--eating seemed to help. I caved and tested this morning with a generic Safeway test and got a BFN, but I'm trying not to be disappointed. I don't know how many dpo I am, but AF isn't due for another 4-5 days.

If this month isn't my month, I think I am going to try an opk. Any recommendations?

You may see your shift tomorrow. It may take a day or two to see the shift. I am having the same problems. I got my shift but NOW i have ewcm! Ugg this month is killing me.

I am hoping you don't need any oPK strips, mama, your symptoms sound promising! As for strips, buy the cheap ones off amazon or earlypregnancytests.com. Are you going to test again?

Thanks, mama! I read somewhere that you could have fertile CM in your uterus but hasn't come through thenp is yet, maybe that is what happened with you! I don't think I have had any EWCM, but we have been BDing a lot and I am new to checking CM, so I dunno.

How many DPO are you?
