Mostly wondfos. Check out posts 51 and 58, I finally got the links to work. I did use a FRER yesterday and I didn't see a thing, and I also didn't upload that one. It was a bit too depressing, haha.

Shandy when is AF due? May have missed it in an earlier post. You said you're testing next at 17 dpo?

Most women have a definitive answer by 14 dpo. You may have ovulated a tad later than FF though or you could have a really late implanter. Your temps look fab! I hope this is it for you!

CD 30 / 15 DPO

No temp for the day. I have no willpower and got another BFN.

A car ran into our fourplex this morning. No one was hurt, thank goodness! The red cross found us a place to stay for the night, thank goodness. They don't know the damage but think we may be out til next week. It is all a big mess and I am tired.

oh my goodness I am so glad no one was hurt!! I am so sorry Shandy!

Looking at your chart I was considering something - what if you actually Od on CD 17? Then you may have been testing a little early? Just an idea. I don't know how you have the willpower to not test. I could use some of that.

Fx for you hun

I haven't really had much willpower, just big plans to have it! Hence the BFN this morn. Our maintenance man is amazing!! He already had people put up a new a new support beam and workers are doing siding etc. now. Electricity and power is back on! I already retrieved our fur-babies and am so happy to be home!

Hmmm... second time it has been suggested I ovulated late. Looking at my chart I noted O pains on CD 15 and cramps on CD 17. Possibly ovulation pain instead? I had a negative OPK on CD 16 and stopped testing but that surge could have indicated O on CD 17 instead right? Because of the 12-36 hr thing? I dont know but if I O'ed on CD 17 then I would hope to get a positive tomorrow (14 DPO in that scenario). I hope that will be the case!!

I tried to call my OB (also does our family medicine) to ask about my headaches every afternoon because they are pretty bad (started about a week ago) and my constant tiredness. I wanted to ask for a blood pregnancy test because if that was the case I could just not worry and be happy... But if that isn't it, I'm kinda concerned. I never have headaches! Well she is on maternity leave and several other docs couldn't get me in. I'm giving up until I am 21 DPO, AF shows and they persist, or I get a positive. That way I will know to schedule with either a family doc or an ob (they DID have room for patients with a BFP already). I'm not missing work or anything and it isn't to the point of migraines so I just think that's better.

Well I hope this made sense and wasn't too long-winded. Today has left me kinda frazzled and I'm typing on my phone which I'm not great at!!

I'm going to watch TV and be happy being back home safely!

CD 31 / 16 DPO

This whole not knowing thing is really draining. I had a temp drop today but I am still above coverline. I also had an interesting test where I think I may see a squinter of a line (especially on invert mode). Here it is for your viewing pleasure:

Pregnancy Test Gallery - Image #155174 | Countdown to Pregnancy

I just wish I knew what was going on with my body. This is my longest cycle since I have been tracking (like a year but just number of days, not temps). It is just a waiting game and I for one am tired of it! Please pray for me so I don't go crazy!

Augh I feel for ya, girl. It is draining -- and it sucks when you can't think of much else!

At one moment I think I see something and then another I don't see anything. I'm sorry

The witch showed.

I must have actually ovulated on CD 17 like some suggested.

Thanks guys. This last month was really hard and so disappointing. I am glad it is over. I think that for the next six months we are just going to casually TTC. This process is just getting way too stressful. At this point I have learned that I ovulate and about when I ovulate and that is enough information for me. Every time AF shows I am going to set an alarm on my phone for five weeks later. If the alarm goes off, I will take a test. If AF shows, I will delete the old alarm and set a new one. No more looking at the calendar and counting days and all of that stuff. I'm just gonna have fun with my hubby and hope that we get a nice surprise in the future.

I will be going to the doctor in 6 months if we still haven't conceived and at that point I may go back to charting depending on what she says.

Now lets see how long I can stick to this plan!

I'm sorry about AF hun. I hope that ttc more casually helps, this process can be so very stressful and consuming at times

I have been very good at not looking at the calendar. I have only figured out the week that we need to use Pre-Seed instead of normal lube and besides that I have not been counting days or trying to figure out BDing (Should I hold off on these days so we can go so many days in a row, etc.) BDing has been a lot more fun and it seems like DH has even more of a drive than he did.

The one thing I have noticed is that I have been bad about taking my vitamins. I need to work on that. It was easy when I was obsessing and would take a look at my FF calendar right before bed but now it just slips my mind.

In other news, my week has been pretty typical. Work has been mostly stress-free and I have just been cooking and trying to get a little bit of housework done every night. I don't want to save it all for the weekend cause there is just so much after being out of town for the past three weekends. I also want to get my hair done this weekend which takes a lot of time due to it's thickness!

Tonight I will be joining a gym. I have been wanting to join for a while but was just waiting until our finances and lives were a bit more settled. They have really fun (but still very difficult) exercise classes included in the cost at a wide variety of times. I will probably do those most of the time since they will keep me going. I'm going to go ahead and sign up for a year so I will feel guilted into going until I can make it a true habit.

Right now I guess I am just focusing on me. First with my health-just eating right and exercising. Also with reducing my stress-level and doing things that I want to do. DH and I have also been focusing on our relationship. We have just been spending a lot of time together, both doing fun stuff (watching movies, playing games, etc) and having more serious conversations. He has been opening up to me about his work stress and just talking about all the things that are important to us.

So, while I wish with all my heart that I am pregnant at this very second, I am just trying to not think about it and so far it is working pretty well!

Your post is so full of positive stuff I'm not sure where to start! Very cool that you joined a gym -- it helps so much with stress and everything else. And wonderful that you are improving your relationship with DH.

Good things are coming your way, I just know it.
