I haven't been posting here as often as I was before because I didn't want to spread my gloomy sadness to others BUT I'm feeling better now and wanted to give an update on my ttc status. It's about that time for me! AF is due on April 2nd then I will take a trip to Walgreens and pick up my 20 day opk test kit. I'm thinking AF might show up a day or 2 early because (tmi) my CM smells a little metallic/sour and I've been feeling those 'heavy' cramps like I'm about to start any minute now

I feel really optimistic about all this. I'm trying not to get my hopes too high, but.. they are already way up there! I plan on sharing pics and all that jazz if you ladies don't mind? I didn't have any issues ttc my son so my fingers are crossed that we get lucky on the first try. It will be past the 5 month mark since losing our son when we start ttc so I'm praying enough time has passed for my body to be fully healed and ready to go again. Mentally it has been really hard but I'm to the point now where I am excited and looking forward to giving it another shot. I can't say I wont be crushed if this first cycle of trying doesn't turn out well, but I'm going to try my best to stay level headed and keep these positive vibes going.

Right now I'm stuck waiting for the witch

Anyone else going to be taking opks in April? I need at least 1 volunteer for me to stalk while I'm going through this whole waiting thing, ahhaha

Good luck. I just ovulated so I will not be doing OPKs until very late April at the earliest if I don't get a sticky BFP. Fingers crossed for you!!!

I'm just starting my opk round for the month. I should get a positive sometime the first week of April, I think. And I post a lot of pics, but usually in the ttc forum. I'll post them here if you want to see. I love looking at other's pics, so I'm glad you want to post pics on here. And I really hope you get a bfp your first month trying! That would be awesome!

My cycles are usually pretty good about being 26-28 days long.
AF is due tomorrow (2nd) but still nothing yet! Last night DH asked if I was 'late'... well no, not yet but it's weird because I have been feeling all kinds of cramps and pains like AF should be here by now. I really thought I was going to start my period a few days early this cycle. My last AF lasted 7 days. Normally it's only 4 or 5 days long so I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it? Maybe?

OR... and bare with me here...
According to the online ovulation trackers my ovulation window was anywhere from March 17 - March 22 with my most fertile day predicted on March 20th. DH and I were using condoms but on the 24th or 25th (i forget which day it was) we dtd without protection because I figured my fertile window was over. Could I be pregnant?!? Probably not... but I guess it is a possibility.

I swear, waiting to see if AF is going to show or not is like watching a new movie you don't know anything about!
You hear a really awesome movie title and assume the film must be as exciting as the name suggests, right? (Not always!) You get all pumped up about the movie and make your plans to watch it. Some people will pay to watch it, while others have no problem waiting for it to show on Tv for free. Either way, when it's time for the movie your excited and on the edge of your seat waiting for anything remotely interesting to happen. Amazing plot, good looking graphics or some attractive actors that are at least good eye candy! Then all of a sudden you see the horrible actors being filmed from what you assume is a camera phone and your thinking, "What the heck is this crap?!" This is not what I had in mind!! Then comes the disappointment, frustration, feeling cheated, ect, ect... sitting through the whole thing is torture! Some people will be okay with the crappy movie, while others of course will feel cheated.


..... Hmmm.. okay LOL never mind... now that I read that back to myself I change my mind.
Waiting for AF to decide whether she is going to show or not is WAY WORSE than watching a lame movie!
Arrrrggg, it's horrible!!

Can't wait to hear an update tomorrow!

LOL I just keep telling myself "there is no way..." plus all the signs that AF is coming is confirming my feelings that she MUST be on the way, right?! I don't have any cheap dollar tests left (does that really surprise anyone?) I only have a more expensive test but I wanted to save it!! But if I don't start by the 3rd I'm going to test!

*sighs* I wish dollar stores were open all night... I would be tearing up the shelf with the pregnancy tests like Y2K was coming!!
