I don't post often. I don't feel like I have anything to say. But I'm feeling kind of down today and well, misery loves company.

My cycle for over a year now has been between 21-24 days. Interesting that it corresponds to when we really started TTC. After our loss in September, I had a perfect 28 day cycle. But I'm back to 24 days. I don't get any indication that I O. Not even a light line on the OPKs. Every single one is stark white. All cycle long. But wouldn't I have to O to get pg in August and to get my period?

We aren't really aggressively TTC now. If we get around to it, then we do, but since our disappointment in September, we just don't seem to be into it. I'm temping, but not regularly and I feel like it's a waste of time. I feel like I'm just waiting for the next cycle to start.

The holidays are coming and if my cycle is the same as it has been in the past there is a good possibility that I O on Thursday. With 20 people coming for dinner that day and many of them staying the night, I guess this month is a lost cause.

I feel like our dream of expanding our family is a pipe dream. I guess I feel good that at least we tried even if it didn't turn out well, rather than not trying at all.

I hope you are all having a better day than I am.

First I am very sorry for your loss in September And truly understand how disappointing TTC can be.

Have you tried different times of the day for your OPK's? You could just be missing the LH surge. For some ladies the surge will show + on an OPK for a couple of days and for some the surge lasts 10 - 12 hours and they never get the + OPK. This could be what is happening to you. When I use OPK's I test sometime between 4pm and 6pm and I almost always will get a + within a few days of O. I have seen that some of the ladies on here have better luck testing with OPK's in the late evening, like 10pm - midnight.

Another suggestion for the OPK's, if you don't already do this, is to not drink anything for 3-4 hours and hold your wee for that time prior to your designated testing time.

Hope you feel better about TTC soon. Sometimes it is easier to just let it all out with other ladies that know how you are feeling.

I am sorry you are having a bad feeling day. If you feel that O would be on thursday you can BD the few days leading up, I hear thats the best time anyway. I wonder if it is the OPKs you are using? I know that some work well for one person and not for another. I wish you luck either way. It would be so nice to see your next post being about how you surprisingly got that Sticky BFP when you felt the odds agaonst you. <3
