I went to walmart this morning and while there I passed the .88 cent rack, which was loaded with OPKs and HPTs...I dug through and pulled out 12 OPKs, which wasn't easy to do with two babies in tow...lol
I put them in my cart and started to walk away and as I was walking, I was counting in my head if I had enough to cover 2 tests per day for 6 days ...then what if I wanted to test early! I would need more....how many more should I get...should I get HPTs while Im here....then it hit me....I went back to the rack and put all the opks away! and to know me...that is no easy feat! I realized that I spend so much time wishing time would pass so I can get AF, then wishing time would pass so I can start testing with OPKs, then wishing time would pass so I can Ovulate already, then wishing time would pass so i can start counting down DPOs, then wishing time would pass so I can start testing with HPTs, then wishing time would pass so I can either get a BFP or AF, then it starts all over again. This has been one of the worst years of my life, second only to the year my parents died unexpectedly within a year of eachother. Losing three pregnancies starting in February and trying to get pregnant again each month since then has made this year a sad blur. I spend all of my time thinking about it and worrying that my Biological clock is ticking so loudly that my brain can't focus on anything else.
So I have decided, for at least today...lol...that I am going to try to not focus on all the logistical stuff. If it is meant to be this month, then it will be. DH and I did all the right things last month, and with all the counting days, and timing BD, we still didn't get pregnant. So this month, I am not going to overly stress. Of course I will still in the back of my mind, but i am not going to let it run my days. I will still try to BD every day from now until next Friday to cover all the bases, but that is about it. i'm truly praying for a Christmas Miracle, but i am leaving it to the higher powers and letting my mind take a break. Good luck to all of us this month! Im so glad I found JM and all of you other "older" members. Feel like a fish out of water on other boards with the 20 somethings....

Aw! I know exactly what you are talking about. DH and I decided in July we would simply stop all of it. Stop counting, stop charting, stop everything. We got pregnant in August.

Even though it didn't last, it gave DH new hope - knowing that we CAN get pregnant. So we started trying again. But we don't go overboard. I use OPKs only once a day for 7 days. I don't crack out the HPTs until AF is 4 days late.

I have every day scheduled out. Chores, outdoor work, my kid's homework. I make sure everything gets done so I don't have time to sit and dwell on my charts.

Good For You, for resisting to be sucked into it all. Keep your chin up, enjoy each day you have, and keep faith that your BFP WILL show up soon!

Sorry about your losses and the ongoing frustration with TTC.

Sometimes it feels good to just not think about it, but the hope that we were successful after our so called "reckless abandon to TTC" is always there.

Will keep all of you ladies in my T & P's that your get BFP's very soon!
