I just started charting with FF this month. I got my thermometer...been at it for about two weeks now.
It is exhausting. Its emotionally exhausting...its physically exhausting for some reason...its anxiety inducing.
Does anyone else feel this way? I know I need to track all this to ensure Im doing the BD when Im most fertile but its also making me feel like crap....I question every little twinge, I find myself worrying about things I never worried about before.
I dunno. Im wondering if I should just stop and let nature take its course.
Temping is really stressing me out. I only get 1 positive OPK a month and its the same day I have ovulation pain and notice my CM change, so its almost pointless to even do. It is quite obvious when I ovulate. My temps are all over the place. I havent ovulated yet...probably in the next 3-5 days if I had to guess. FF gives me this warning that they are rocky and there couldbe something wrong.
I cant deal with seeing that every day. And the waiting for something to happen. I wonder sometimes if its stressing me out more than I need right now.
I am VERY glad I am not the only one, though it makes me sad you are stressed out too!
I just started temping this cycle. I'm only on CD 4 today and started temping on CD 2. It's not stressful yet (since I've only done it a few days!), but I have a feeling it's going to stress me out. Haha already my 3 temps are all over the place, so I'm sure in a week or 2 I'm going to be stressed and obsessing! I really am only doing it to make sure that I actually am ovulating.
I think the OPKs are stressing me out too! This cycle I bought the digital clear blue ones so I can stop wondering if the line is the correct color since mine usually look close to positive (even today, and I still have AF a little bit!)
I'm sure stressing out over this stuff isn't going to help, so if I don't have luck this cycle I think I'm just going to DTD every other day around O time.
I'm glad I'm not the only stressed out one too! Sorry I went off on a bit of a rant
Everything about TTC can be so stressful. But I will definitely agree with you that charting can be stressful too. I really hope that this is your cycle and you get your bfp!!! So then you don't have to worry about charting any more It is so easy to get caught up in everything with TTC but don't forget to enjoy yourself. Don't let TTC and charting rule your life. Good luck!!!
