So, I'm feeling really sad and scared about my upcoming cycles. I'm so happy that RE found and resected endo; but I'm terrified that it won't make a difference. Statistically, it would make sense that endo is the reason that we can't conceive as we have minimal issues otherwise. I'm not quite sure why I'm so down, probably because the two year mark is coming soon. I think that all of this is just so emotionally draining. It doesn't help that its CD 18, I still haven't ovulated and I'm having breast tenderness before O. I'm just really feeling down today. I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow.

I know that must be so scary. Two years is a long time I hope you have your BFP before that anniversary comes. Like you said statistically the odds are in your favor that the endo was causing you problems and you will be able to conceive now. I am so hoping with everything that I have that you are able to get your BFP soon. Everything is crossed for you!!!

Just catching up after a hiatus from the JM journals. I always plan to do better, and then I get behind all over again. I'm always thinking of you though.

I hope it's just O hormones making you feel a little down. I always get weird like that leading up to O, just kind of sad no matter what's going on. I hope you'll see that BFP very soon, dear, now that the endo is taken care of.

Work is keeping me insanely busy! I'm also trying to catch up with everything at home as I have had very busy weekends the last few weeks. I'm so looking forward to relaxing this weekend. So far I only have a couple outings, breakfast with friends on Saturday morning and dinner with DH on Saturday night. I really hope that it stays that way. Otherwise, I'm cleaning the house for when DH's parents arrive next week. It looks like most of my summer weekends are really starting to book up now too. Oh well, I guess it's good to keep busy.

TTC: Feeling like it will never happen. Again, it's good to keep busy!

Thanks ladies! I truly think its the hormones. I'm having an amazing surge of estrogen. That's what's likely making the bbs hurt. I'm totally gearing up to O. I'm very tired, but very horny--an interesting combination. Hopefully I'll O this cycle. I'll KUP!

Sorry your feeling so down hun, I get it but trying to stay positive for our cycle. My 2yr anniversary is the 15th July (the 14th is also my birthday) and I'm avoiding thinking about how i'll feel if this cycle doesnt work out.

I hope you O soon, those sad/horny emotions should make for an interesting mix for DH!

Oh and keeping busy is the way forward, ignorance is bliss right?! You will have your BFP, I just know it!

Hi ladies,

Sorry that I have been MIA. I'm going through a lot of things right now and needed some time away. On a positive note, I did ovulate this cycle. This is the first cycle since IVF that I ovulated on my own. I ovulated sometime last week (I'm guessing Thursday, but it could have been earlier). I stopped checking CM and CP last Monday as I thought I wasn't going to ovulate. Well, low and behold I did ovulate. Sore bbs, cramping when I workout, constipation, and hungry all the time--all telltale signs that I O'd. Sadly, I did not catch the egg this cycle as DH and I stopped BDing as I thought the cycle was a bust. Oh well, next cycle will be a medicated one, so I will definitely O and O early.
