Of course AF decides to show up yesterday, making it cycle day 1! I'm debating on whether or not I want to chart this month- I already missed two days of temping but can I start tomorrow on CD 3 or no? And I would like to get some ICs in OPKs and HPTs bc the store ones are so expensive but does anyone know how fast they ship? And from what site would be the fastest? Bc I would like to get them about when AF is over so I can start using them! I know this is out first month TTC this time but it's still a let down bc I thought I had so many symptoms... How do you girls do it month after month? It happened the first try with my son so I never had this problem and am VERY thankful for that but it makes me sad for all of the ladies here who have been trying so long... How do you stay positive??? My DH just started a new job this week that is 3-11 so I'm so sad it didn't work last month bc I work 6:45-2:45 and won't hardly see him and will be in bed when he gets home so def won't have as much time to BD now- I'm hoping to leave my work early at 12- 3 days a week so we can at least see each other for an hr... And we'll have to set DS up with a movie I guess and BD quick before he leaves! Whew... Sorry I kinda got to rambling but I'm sure I will be spending a lot more time on here since I'll be lonely at night without DH home!!!
Sorry it didn't work out this month!
It's definitely hard and frustrating; we have been trying for a year... But I just find hope every month that this may be the one. I started charting and that gives me something to focus on. And yes, you can start on CD3. I got a clear blue fertility monitor so I cant help with the opks, sorry. Just hang in there and I hope you guys find time to BD this cycle!!
I don't temp at all I didn't want to obsess over it that much, but it's been 8 months and I might just have to
My husband works 3-11:30 as well, and it is hard, but we manage to make time. I either wait up for him (regardless as to what time I work the next day) or we try during the day. DD has frequently been plopped on the couch and a movie put in lately. If it helps why not!!
Sorry AF showed, but keep your head up. It's been 8 months for us, and it hasn't been easy, and some months are easier than others, but I'm sure you'll catch that egg this month!
