Okay so my DH is about to kill me if I talk about babies one more time right now so I'm going to ramble to you guys. So as to my best guess I'm FINALLY starting my 2WW for my 6th cycle and I'm just praying I keep my sanity. I don't know if it's the weather or if it's that we're just over the summer "hump", but this cycle has been dragging. As far as I can tell between the charting and the OPK's I O'ed sometime between Saturday and Monday, although the test was pretty dark this morning too but not as dark as yesterday and I got the same darkness on Sunday that I got today... I'm still new at the OPK thing so I'm not sure what that means but my guess is I either will O in the next 12 hours or have already O'd, since I definitely got a positive yesterday. If I did O yesterday I'm officially at what will most likely be a 30 day cycle, which I really didn't need since I'm going a little crazy this month anyway. And on top of it the only thing that seems to keep me from losing it is doing little things to prep for a BFP, you know buy books, start browsing gift registry ideas, cleaning everything but a desk out of my office so that there will be room for new furniture, the kind of things that make you even crazier if you end up with that BFN at the end of the wait. And on top of it my job is slowing down right now. I'm a horse riding instructor and all the kids are at summer camps or canceling because it too hot so I have seriously no distractions right now!!!! Oh and did I mention that I have OCD and ADHD so I've got my own special kind of everyday crazy anyway. It'd be really nice if I still had some hair for my kids to turn gray when they do come.... Thank you for listening to my crazy ramblings....
I am about a week into my 2WW somewhere between 6-8 DPO and I know how you feel. Things are a little slow at my work which leaves me way too much time to play on the interenet and rad all about pregnancy stuff. Hang in there - the girls here at JM will help keep you sane! And GL - lots of baby dust to you!
haha you crack me up. Best advice I can give is try to stay busy with stuff not related to babies. It will help keep your mind off of it and the time will seem to go by faster. Maybe clean or organize parts of your house. Buy some new cookbooks or bake something. I dunno, but I do know I hope your 2ww goes by fast and you get your BFP!!!! GL!

Girl, I'm right there with you!! I am between 4 and 7dpo, I think and I am driving DH crazy, just like last month. Everything is a symptom in my head! I have a feeling he will be wanting to put duct tape over my mouth if we're still TTC a year from now. I'll have to just come here to vent more.

Lol I'm so glad to not be the only one finally!! I'm 22 and none of my other friends are even thinking about babies let alone actually trying. It gets pretty lonely sometimes. My DH just started a new job after about 2 months of unemployment, Thank God, but I'm more alone at home by myself a little more than I have been my last two cycles. Okay so they have WAY too many baby shows on the tv and this is really not helping but I can't stop! lol We moved to a townhouse two months ago so I'm still unpacking a lot. I'm determined to distract myself by cleaning the house.
That's a great idea!! I'm actually studying Creative Writing and Literature at school and I'm taking this semester off this fall. With all the reading my major requires I haven't gotten to read what I choose in almost 4 years and I've recently bought several new books lately too, so I've got some reading piled up anyway. Unfortunately one of my new books is about pregnancy. Yeah I know... but it was kind of for a good reason. About a week ago I had just a huge bout of fear that we were being irresponsible because of our age and lower financial situation. I really felt like we were just not ready to have a baby and that I wasn't qualified to take care of a newborn so much so that I wanted to stop trying right in the middle of my window of opportunity but my DH knew if we stopped now I'd regret it and then it would be another cycle before we can even try again. So we bought a book to read so I could feel more secure in my abilities and that if I feel ready then I'm ready. It really helped push me past that fear but now my DH has to hide it from me...lol Oh the crazy roller coaster of baby-making!!!! Gotta say I'm not even preg yet and I already have a new respect for my mom.
