Argh. I just need to vent.

On Saturday night I had one of my typical pregnancy/baby dreams. I usually dream about having an infant and bfing it, of all things. I think I am so looking forward to that relationship that it plays out in my dreams. Of course I woke up and no baby. But that started me thinking about how amazing it will be when I FINALLY have one.

No ovulation in sight. I keep swearing I'm going to post pics of the monitor strips but it's a little depressing. I'm feeling frustrated because this is my fourth cycle in six months. I just want to be normal. I just want my body to have a predictable rhythm of 28-30 days. I realized this morning that I've never actually been in the "two week wait" because I have never ovulated. (Whine!) Most women have TWO chances to conceive to my ONE cycle so far.

Sigh. I really dread starting the progesterone again. But it's either that or wait 70 days for a period that might not show up. And how am I supposed to plan any trips or vacations when I have to think about ovulating and getting some loving in with my husband?

I feel like Charlie Brown when he leans his head back, opens his mouth, and wails "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHH!"

I am so sorry Sam that is so frustrating!!! Having long cycles is terrible! I made this mistake and calculated out how many chances I would miss in a year if I keep it up with the 40 - 50 day cycles. . . The dreams can be so tough but hang in there! One day it will be true

Fx that your body is going to get on board real soon and you O any day now!

Sending you some O dust!!!!!!!!!

I know to wake up and find no baby will be a bummer but before I wanted to TTC I had a few dreams about us having a baby and even twins one time there......now we are TTC I have been longing to have a nice dream about it where I can see the babies faces etc, but nope, nadda, nothing... I know I'll be a little bummed when I wake up, but then again maybe not, maybe I'll just be happy to have had the dream.... maybe I'm nuts too...........

I'm really sorry, Sam. *HUGS* I don't think I have O'ed yet either. It is very frustrating, I know. I feel like time is just slipping away from me.

We are here for you.

Sorry Sam - those vivid dreams are hard!

Vent away! Venting keeps us sane (or as sane as we can be during this crazy journey of TTC!)

~thanks to Jaidynsmum for my perfect siggy!~

Totally get the baby dreams, I had several during IVF. So sorry that you are going through this. Hopefully your body will begin to regulate on it's own next cycle. When do you see the doc about starting progesterone again?

Thank you all for the love and support. Per usual, after venting I felt much better. Sometimes you got gotta get it out and let it GO.

Nicholle, I have a RX for the progesterone. I had been holding out on taking it to give my body a chance to ovulate on its own and to wait for finals to get wrapped up for the most part. I have two pretty critical papers to write and I didn't want to be caught up the the roller coaster of emotions again. I'm thinking I'll start the progesterone either Friday or next Monday.

Sorry about the frustrations I am starting to get the baby dreams which is how I knew I wanted to start trying and it sucks when things don't work "to plan".
