I am so frustrated today. I came on to post and noticed another post with a similar story (sort of) so I considered not posting this, but I am just too **** angry at the world to care about people getting irritated with duplicates!
I should say first for the past few months my cycle has changed from normal-ish, (roughly 27-30 days with AF lasting always 7 days.) to much longer (as described below) and AF lasting 9-10 days. The ONLY change is that we went from preventing (naturally and condoms), to NTNP.
I have not been temping (I did 1 month a few cycles ago) because it just made me more stressed, and to me that was kind of the line between NTNP and TTC. I did however download a free app that keeps track of your cycle, just because I have been irregular that I wanted a way to look back and see what was going on for when we do actively ttc. My last 2 cycles were 40 days and 34 days. According to this app I was predicted at having a 38 day cycle this month, now I know that an app can't know my body exactly and is in no way an accurate prediction, but I felt based on the past few months of really odd cycles it would be pretty close. AF was due in 10 days on the 24th.
According to this app I would have been fertile on the day we dtd. I have been feeling 'different'. Not sure how to explain that, but it was just odd. I did have 'symptoms' like being extra tired, and unusually sore breasts. And I've been weepy for a few weeks.
Anyways I was starting to get really excited that I might be preggers (DH is away this month and I started thinking about ways I could tell him when he came home etc) and then AF shows up! 10 days 'early'. I know I shouldn't have put so much stock in a stupid app, but I'm feeling really devastated. I am obviously hormonal, plus my childhood dog was put down today, but I am confused by this cycle, and my other symptoms! I had been to a few bbq's and had friends bring us some wine for a house warming present... and now I'm annoyed I had avoided all alcohol (I realize it makes me sound like a big drinker, I'm really not, but for today I'm just angry at everything I did to allow myself to think I was pregnant) but you can bet I will be cracking that sucker open tonight!
I guess I just feel like a moron, mixed with disappointment... it's a crappy day!
hugs.. its going to be okay... our bodies are evil and play mind tricks on us of course.. when its time for it to happen it will.. and i dont blame ya i would have cracked that wine bottle open to.. just let it go sweety... and just because there is similar posts dont mean we dont want to hear it... have a good tomorrow k!!!!
been there. . . After I had a mc, I tortured myself month after month for over a year. It was only after I stopped looking at my phone app, stopped stressing completely to the point I was positive that I wasn't pregnant again that I was pleasantly surprised with ds3. I hope it happens for you too (only hopefully much sooner )
