I broke down and tested yesterday and today...I know I'm only 9 DPO, but I've seen so many women get BFP's around this time....anyways, it was negative, not even a hint of a line....ugh. I know it's super early yet, but it's hard not to get disappointed. The symptoms I've been feeling could be symptoms of PMS, and also pregnancy, they are so similar it's hard to guess....My DH just doesn't understand my obsession with this TTC thing....he just thinks that it'll happen when it's supposed to happen and he's not at all concerned. I'm mostly concerned that it's him, that he might be the one having the problem in our TTC journey, only b/c I've already had a child, so I know I can get pregnant....ugh. This is so frustrating!!!! I cried for a good hour last night b/c I just feel like I'm out once again this month We used pre-seed this month, so I was really hoping that this would do the trick.
You are definitely not out yet. I've never been one to get BFPs before the day of my missed period. I've tested early before and gotten BFN even when I'm pregnant. Now I don't test until the day my period is due and she hasn't shown. I hope this is it for you!
I understand completely! Maybe it's a Josh thing my hubby is Josh too! I think in a way they are just trying to keep us sane by telling us it'll happen when it's supposed to. My husband tells me"not everything happens on your schedule, just relax and it'll happen." Which doesn't help the situation. They are trying to deal with things in a way that will try and calm us down but it doesn't always work that way. This is our 6th month ttc and we started using pre-seed the last two cycles. I am now 7-8 dpo and got a bfn this morning and honestly, I thought maybe I would be one that gets an early bfp, but not today. The truth is, more get a bfp closer to 12-14 dpo anyway so don't lose hope. You are still in the game I really hope this is your month! How long have you guys been ttc? Oh and completely with you on the symptoms! Every month I think this is th month! Then it's a huge let down when it isn't. Just remember you're not alone! I don't have any children, but I've been pregnant once before so I know it can happen, but when is the big question.
I cried for a good hour last month when af showed and it isn't a pleasant thing to go through, but just remember you aren't out until af shows and let's hope she stays away!
Thanks ladies, I'm 12 DPO now and tested again...negative This is our 6th month TTC, I have a 6 year old daughter from a previous relationship, so I know I can get pregnant We used pre-seed on the right days, and I ovulated according to OPK's, unless they are totally wrong? I dont know. I don't get any EWCM, it's always just sticky CM....so that's why I thought pre-seed would help us get pregnant...
Oh, hun, I'm sorry your going through this. I'm sure you will get your BFP soon...maybe this month just was a dud. We have "dud eggs." I think I've gone through some of those. Its sounds like you did everything right. Although, there's still a chance, when I was pregnant, it didn't show up until 16 dpo.
I know, when I was preggers with DD, I didn't get any positive pregnancy tests, and I was 2 days late for AF, blood test confirmed it for me. But, I go by PMS symptoms and they are all there which mimic pregnancy symptoms a lot I do not chart, I'm thinking of doing it next cycle though b/c it's the only thing we haven't done yet
