Here's my vent
I just don't get it. I don't know why or what to do anymore to get a BFP. AF showed up today 3days early. So again cycles changed.
This is so darn frustrating. Ahhhhh
Sorry. Had to vent somewhere. DH reminds me it will happen when it happens but I just don't know emotionally if I can handle anymore.
What about you ladies???
Again, Sorry AF showed and early at that! What is going on with AF's this month!?
We're just going to have fun and try not to stress about it, at least not in front of DH, but that's what these forums are for, right?!
It'll happen, when it happens and we'll be ready for whenever that is.
Vent away! ((HUGS))
I am debating taking a month off from charting myself. We have been TTC since April but this cycle that should be ending tomorrow is only my 4th. I'm afraid not charting may be just as stressful since my cycles are so wonky. :-/ Hopefully this month is "when it happens" and you won't have to wait any longer.
I cried for the first time this cycle when AF came. I don't get it. I am as frustrated as you. I cannot stop taking my temp because I would stress out even more.
For me, I had everything planned out to have a baby early in the year, so that DS would be 3 1/2, a perfect age imgap IMO. Now he'll be almost 4 or more, depending on when this happens. I know it's not the end of the world but unjust for once wanted this to happen the way I wanted it to happen. It's so hard to hear about people havin sex once and getting pregnant, when it takes so much effort for me to get pregnant.
There's my vent
The serious thought is throwing my hands up soon. November is approaching and my girls are getting older. At one point I don't want such a gap, it's a whole new start I can see that with your ds julie
I just can't handle it anymore. I'm still a wreck and trying to hide it so DH doesn't think I've lost my mind. Truly I have already
What are you ladies going to do? Am I wrong for thinking this?
I have discussed that with hubby often, we have decided to keep trying. I am worried about the age gap, I never wanted more than about 2 years, but i had a c section so had to wait to even be considered a candidate for VBAC and head of maternity at my hospital is an idiot and would not rule me a candidate unless there was a full two years before I fell pregnant again, when I heard he was gone we started trying. Now we are looking at much closer to a four year gap, it makes me sad but having one child only would make me sadder, although I am working on acceptance of that situation
We won't set an end date for a long time. My DD isn't 2 yet but I am 30. My end date would be based on my age more than anything but I'm not even considering that for now. I have friends with all kinds of age gaps between themselves and siblings and each has advantages and disadvantages so I am not worried about that personally.
I'm 34. I turn 35 in February. At some point I will have to make the decision that I'm done because I'm too old.
If I was pregnant right now I'd be 35, DS would be 5, DD would be 3 1/2 when baby arrived. So I'm okay with that.
But I can't see myself trying for more than a year at this point. I think I'd feel like I do have two wonderful kids, I'm older and maybe that's just the way it's meant to be. I'm not there yet, but I can see myself getting there within the next year.
I think I'm going to try for two more cycles and then take a 5 month break. We have a big vacation for next November. So I'd want an August baby at the latest and then not want to try again until it would be a late January baby. So it's conceivable that I only have a couple more months to try and then I might be done forever.
