Because not only do I only have a ten day luteal phase, I start getting AF symptoms 7 days before my period hits. At 3DPO I get moody (check) and a couple days later I break out(check) 6dpo I bloat and want chocolate from 6dpo til AF hits(check and check). All signs point to AF and none to PG, and with both my other PG's I *felt* PG and just *knew* I was PG before I even tested, when I tested, I don't know how many DPO I was (I never used to track my periods) but I always got extremely faint positives. I REALLY don't think i'm PG.
I feel bad, like I'm gonna let everyone down when I get AF Thing is, I have tracked every single twinge and anything at all that *could* possibly be considered a symptom of anything, AF or PG, and I went back to 8dpo for my last month, and I had cramping that day exactly like I felt it today, and every other day leading up to today has been the same thing too. I'm soo sure I'm not PG but I want to be! I want to be wrong! I'm going nuts cause my temp is right at what it was last cycle this day, but its also right at that pregnancy chart I found. My body tells me its a no go.
By the way my boss told us today that his wife thinks she is pregnant with their 7th child, he is not happy about it, he had a vasectomy in April. Sigh, I wish I could have some of HER baby dust!
Awww mel! The last thing you need to worry about is feeling like you'll let any of us down if Af shows! We're here to support you and share in your hopes and dreams... and disappointments. Sure, we'll be sad for you if it doesn't happen this cycle , but no one will be upset or disappointed IN you. Also, remember that just like how you have to see the forrest through the trees when charting... your individual temperatures are specific to you, and so the bfp chart you're stalking with similar temps may not be accurate in comparison with yours. Just watch for the general pattern, not so much the actual degrees.
And that would be crazy if they are pg with their 7th child after a vasectomy! Talk about some serious sperm! And God REALLY wanting them to have this baby!
You ladies are the best! I know I should be bummed out right now but it's more I feel like...getting pregnant is the stuff of myths, like death, it happens, you know it happens, but it doesn't happen to YOU, thats just nuts to even think about really happening! The concept is so out there, it's hard to imagine being real, like winning the lottery.
I feel like AF is on the way, sorta bummed tonight. I accidentally missed my OBGYN appt yesterday, they were supposed to call me to remind me and they didn't. My Dr. almost didn't give me a refill of clomid. She says if I miss another one she won't until she has seen me. Apparently she insists on doing ultrasounds each cycle to see if cysts are forming from the clomid. Tonight i'm wishing I could deny all the obvious signs that AF is on the way, wish that I could actually have two full weeks of wondering and waiting, still with the hope. I'm sure other TTC women would kill to know within 3 days of ovulating if they caught the egg or not. I just kinda want to be filled with hope for a possibility but there is none. Tomorrow is 10DPO, Sunday I will get AF.
I didn't lock the kitten and Kharma up as usual last night, so instead I just kicked them out of the bedroom and closed the door. At 5:30am Chaos was scratching and howling at the bedroom door. I temped real quick and then got up and let him in, and Kharma and kitten followed. Then all three ran all over us in the bed, causing me to get up, grab Kharma and baby, and put them away in the room across the house. Then I tried to go back to sleep but I could still hear Kharma crying in the other room the whole time. Finally my alarm went off and I temped again, and while I was doing that Chaos jumped off a high shelf and landed on my stomach(not a pleasant experience, a lot like having a bowling ball with claws dropped on your gut while you are laying on the couch). Of course this caused my 'normal time' temp to be sky high. The first one was exactly what it was this day last cycle though so i'm prone to go with that one, 98.11 instead of the 98.45.
I've started stalking baby clothes. Today I went to Babys R Us and scoured the clearance racks, I found a little girls onesie for $2. Tomorrow I might hit Baby Gap and Gymboree. It keeps me entertained while i'm waiting to try and find quality baby clothes under $3. Sort of a little challenge/game. Or possibly i'm losing my marbles, i'm sure thats what DH would say if he knew LOL.
hahah I love that you called it stalking baby clothes... I picture you like a kitty... literally stalking your prey. you're the best... if we ever got together IRL you'd have to take me shopping for sure!
