I'm a little bummed today. I've been spotting for two days now. So I guess that means my period will be here like clockwork this Saturday. I'm 11 dpo as of today and I already know I'm not pregnant so now I have to wait for AF to show, then I have to wait to ovulate. Then I have to wait to see if I'm pregnant or not. This is my second month to try acupuncture and I really had high hopes for it. This is my 10th month of TTC. I'm getting discouraged at this whole process. I wish I wouldn't spot 5 days before my period starts. It's such a bummer to know 5 days in advance that you are not pregnant. To make it even better I gotten a couple of false positives with my IC so it's been a roller-coaster month. I keep thinking there's got to be a better way. LOL I know there's only one way to get pregnant but why does it have to be so freaking hard.
I know how you feel. It really is discouraging. We started trying around May of 2012 (so about 10 months as well) and when I got off my birth control my cycles were so crazy, then I got pregnant in September, had a miscarriage in December, and now my periods are all out of whack still.
I feel the same way about the soy isoflavones I took as you do about the acupuncture. I'm afraid my hopes are so high about this cycle that if/when AF comes I'm going to be so devastated.
I am sorry that AF is showing up. I know once you reach the double digits when TTC it is hard and depressing. I really hope that acupuncture will help you. I haven't done that yet but have checked into it and it seems to help. I have been going to the chiropractor and that has helped me immensely, the aches and pains I had before I thought were normal. I never knew what life could be without those aches and pains, wish I would have done that a long time ago.I just want you to know that I understand what you are going through and agree that TTC is and can be so frustrating. I don't understand why it has to be so hard for some people to get pregnant and for others it just seems to happen on accident without trying. I really hope and pray that you get your bfp soon and get to move onto a DDC soon!!!
I know the bummed feeling and haven't been ttcing as long as you even so I feel for ya. Hope you soon get your bfp!
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 'Blessings' by Laura Story (What if trials of this life, are your mercies in disguise) Glorious Ruins
