I am worried I am going to have another anovulatory cycle. I'm on CD 18. No bodily signs that I'm gearing up to O and no positive OPKs. I'm using the Clear Blue Easy Fertility (smiley vs no smiley). Here is a pic of my lame pee sticks.



Thoughts?

I'm planning on testing up until I get my derned period. I don't know what good having 45 days worth of negative OPKs will do, but I'll have something to show a doctor eventually.

Oh sweetie I hope it doesn't go that way! Like Erin said, maybe you will O late. I am having to learn not to stress out about it and just relax because if not it pushes my O date and AF out. But that is just me. I really hope you O soon! Fingers crossed for you!

I have no trust in the digi anymore.... and you can't really go off the strips.

examples.. the top one and bottom one are from the smiles from 2 cycles.. the one in the middle was taken from the same pee as the top one (so it would be a smile too, had I actually put it in the reader)





I'm going back to Wondfos.

Still. Nothing.



I have to confess that I called my grandmother today. We've always been close and she has continued to be a positive force in my life. So I told her we were trying to conceive and asked her to send good energy my way. I really am not sure I believe in energy or angels of protection... but she always has. So I feel better knowing that my grandmother will be asking the angels on my behalf. It was a small step to feel like I was doing something. So I am BELIEVING that her angels will make this happen.

ANOTHER confession: I hid several stories on my news feed today from new moms. This one chick, oh her life is sooooo perfect, she has the most beautiful baby girl, a good job, she loves to nap with her baby, and she sows burp cloths and bonnets for her baby...and has been posting 10 pictures a day of the baby. So she's hidden from my news feed for a while. >/

Sorry I'm late in responding. I can't see pics on my work pc. Your OPKs are getting darker, but still not positive. Any other signs?

I totally get hiding someone on fb. Don't worry Sam, we'll all get there! One day it will be you with a baby!

There have been times when I wanted to do this... especially because it's gotten to the point where everyone I know is having kids... everyone. It's very depressing and they probably don't even realize they're doing it. And of course I'll be darned if I say anything.... because TTC is something so personal I haven't really told anyone. That is discussion best reserved for semi-anonymous folks on the internets. I've made light of it to my closest friends... trying to keep them in the dark... but hopefully it happens soon...because having people ask when you're going to start having kids is the ABSOLUTE WORST. //RANT

Hope you get a positive test for O soon.... how many cycles have you been tracking? When do you normally O?

I block non JM'ers who've had babies alot. Especially the ones who always have a camera in their babies face.... And they usually aren't even good photos.

I've been struggling with my spirituality for a while... so I've decided to just do what feels right. Well I've been learning about the Angels and such since the beginning of last cycle.. and decided to try and "befriend" the Angel Lailah.. who happens to be the angel of conception. It helped me to feel confident and calm for the first half of my cycle. I wrote her a letter and put it in a special space. I figure if I keep doing it, she'll hear me eventually.

The facebook feed can be so brutal! It is best to block them whenever you need

I also feel like they are getting darker still. . . I will send some positive O thoughts your way!!

Digis didn't work for me at all. I have multiple LH surges, and the digis didn't catch my final LH surge (the one where I ovulate) at all. I switched to Wondfo. They are way cheaper and more sensitive. Sorry you're having a rough time. Hang in there!

I understand your frustration lady! I usually don't O until CD20 or later. Definitely sticking to the actual Wondfo's this time around. I am so sorry your having a fussy cycle but I think you will O soon.

I found out that the quilt that the DH's grandmother handmade us for our wedding present is an actual fertility blanket (she recently asked DH and I if we were trying to conceive?!). We haven't really told any of the family because we want it to be a secret. There goes that! I believe in angels, spirits, etc. I have asked that my church say some fertility prayers for us as well this month.

Good luck sweetie and have faith! PM if you ever want!
