When are you most optimistic that your cycle could be a success? Which do you think is worse-waiting to O or being in the 2ww (or both are equally bad)?
For me-I'm usually most optimistic at the VERY beginning of a cycle, about the time of my baseline. In my mind, the new cycle has all the possibilities in the world. When I get closer to O'ing, I worry more. I worry about the number of follies, the size, the lining thickness
I still think the 2ww is worse though!

I would have to say I'm the most optimistic when I feel the ovulation pains...I started to think of my body as a factory...I even will make the noises of a machine when I feel the pain as I smile brightly. So definetly for me I hate the waiting for O the most. Not a real POAS finatic.

Good question, and I have to say the answer depends on our plan for the cycle. If we are doing a cycle with no MA, then I'm most optimistic after O. I get all excited and hopeful because I could possibly already be pregnant and it would all have happened just the way nature intended. For IUI cycles, I get excited on CD1, because it is really neat to watch the follies grow and prepare to meet DH's swimmers. Plus I think IUI cycles have a better chance for success, so I get excited sooner.

The 2ww was always the worst for me. While I was waiting to o, I could always distract myself with temping, OPKs, etc. I felt like I had more control of the outcome. Once I was in the 2ww, I felt like it was all out of my hands.
I am most optamistic when I start taking my clomid!!! I love knowing that I am doing everything I can to help my body O!!! That being said, I hate waiting to O, it stresses me out like no other!!! I hate that it could be a wasted cycle because it might not work, for me the 2ww is a piece of cake compared to waiting to O!!
