****Open Forum Monday****

Hi everyone, thought I would get things started this morning. I know I kind of disappeared for a few days. I wasn't very pleasant so I didn't want to bring my gloom and doom here. Just tired of beating a dead horse. Well, I took another hpt this morning and of coarse, BFN. Still no sign of AF. I wish the damn thing would just start. I've decided to just keep my mind on other things for now and stop ttcing so hard. I have backed off alot but I'm going to even more. I just have a feeling things aren't going to work in my favour, as usual. I don't even know if I want to bother seeing another Dr at this point. I'll see when the time comes anyway.

So, what's all the good cher? Any BFP's?

Have a great day everyone!!!

Anyone ever experience Braxton Hicks around 20 weeks?  I have been and I will be 21 weeks this Thursday.  My dr wants me to get a stress test done to see what is really happening.  Any info would be great.

Im just so crappy today. After missing AF for approx. 4days, she arrived this morning after bd last night. I tested this morning and still got BFN. But its really weird because Im still having prego symptoms. And AF looks d/red. This time Im definitely going to get a blood test done. To make matters worse, my colleague just announced that shes 6.5wks prego.

I have an appt for pap smear with the Nurse on Friday and Im going to make an appt with the Dr. Im so having a major headache at this very moment and still frequent urination and poor appetite. Has anyone ever experienced this and still prego? -- Help Im so frustrated at the moment!!

God bless

Hi, I know exactly how you are feeling. I'm on like CD36, and I've had 3 BFN. Last cycle was 60 some days long. I'm frustrated. I really wish my body would work right. I'm debating whether or not I should see a physician about these long cylces. But, sometimes I think I need a break from TTC. I bought the book, "Taking Charge of Your Fertility". It's a good book, but if I start all the charting a stuff it recommends, I think I'll be more stressed out. I was pregnant only 4 months ago. Maybe my body is not ready for another pregnancy. I keep reading when your body is ready to be pregnant after a miscarriage, then it will happen. I had no idea how the decision to TTC would affect my life, it can be all consuming.

I hope that thing take a new turn for you soon. I know how frustrating this is. Take care! ~Kristen

I hear you both about the headaches.  I have had more headaches in the past 2 weeks than I have had in my life and I am 31 yrs old.  I very rarely get them and when I do it worries me. Hang in there.  I have broken down and taken Tylenol but that does not usually touch them.

Chrisy - I am sorry to hear about AF coming.  People tend to get a lot of pg symptoms before AF.  Also (and I do not mean this is the case with you) sometimes when people want something so badly and especially if you were late you get psychosomatic symptoms where you feel like you have all symptoms of being pg just to make yourself think you are.  I am not trying to say it is all in your head I just want you to know that happens.  I would say you just had a late period this month.  A HPT would have definitly come out if you were in fact pg.  I know this is not what you wanted to hear but I feel the truth is best.  Keep trying.  Now that you have AF just BD like crazy when it is done.  It will happen for you.  Good Luck.

Yeah, of course thats not what I want to hear but Im a stickler for the truth as well. I guess I was conscious of not wanting to miss AF, and Ive actually missed it - lol. Thanks a lot anyway.

Just a quick question. Now that AF is late. Would would I be right in saying that my LMP was a 32day cycle? As well this has just messed up my normal regular 28day cycle. How do I check ovulation now - would I start counting from today?

God bless

Thanks Melissa, but I'm not banking on anything now. I'm just letting it all go and trying to enjoy my life. I actually am looking into buying a new home and selling my old one so that will be my focus for now. I have a feeling that the heat DH is working in is affecting our ttcing. He's in extreme heat 4 days a week so I think it's damaging his swimmers. Maybe I'm off but I have great instincts. Glad to hear Seth is doing well, the little cutie. Best of luck to you girl.
