Kinda been laying low lately, doesn't look like I've O'd this cycle was hoping that my last AF was finally getting my body back on track but it doesn't seem to be that way.
I have another appointment with my GP this week and DH has his SA that same day so we're on track to hopefully get into the fertility specialist into the new year. Since my cycles have been so messed up lately - and were in the past as well up until about 5 years ago, I'm actually expecting his tests to come out fine.
I'm lucky that I'm the youngest in my office and one of the youngest in our organization so I'm not surrounded by pregnant women all day - most others are grandparents - but there has been a 'baby boom' at work with everyone announcing new grandchildren are on the way in my immediate office there are 3 - 6 to 12 month old grandchildren and 2 newborns (one was born yesterday) and 4 more on the way! There are another 4 to 6 newborns or pregnancies within our unit as well! No one knows we've been trying so I just have to put on a smile and say how great it is
This TTC business can be rough and heartbreaking. Though I know you are happy for everyone else blessed enough to be getting babies or grandbabies, I know it only highlights that you aren't yet pregnant. I understand that and it's completely normal. I have faith that you will get there soon. I hope your appointments go well and I hope you will KUP on how things go.
Glad to hear you're getting in with a fertility specialist soon. Hopefully, they can find an easily remedied problem that is messing up your cycles soon. I work at one of those places where people joke that there must be something in the water because so many employees (or their wives) are pregnant. I think it has more to do with the fact that we have a lot of younger employees. It's hard to hear those announcements and go to the showers when TTC isn't going so well.
AF is due but not started yet.
Feeling rather crampy though and seeing as I am pretty sure I haven't O'd this month I have not bothered to test, am not in the mood for a BFN. Just got a notice about my dental claim which got screwed up so I'm still waiting to get my $$ back (most of my Christmas shopping money went into my mouth till I get reimbursed ).
Tomorrow is another day....
And I found out I won't get my $$ reimbursed until after the new year! I'm trying to look on teh bright side - I'll be getting about $500 bucks back after the holidays when everyone else is broke! lol as long as I don't break down and max my credit card now....
Go easy on the credit card and enjoy your first of the year "bonus!" I have a "normal" monthly income, but I also have some months where I get a "bonus" for teaching over breaks or picking up extra classes. Looking forward to recovering from the holidays with an income injection from a winter interim class.
How did the testing go today?
BFN as expected at least I wasn't surprised.
Breasts are getting to be sore and cramps are coming and going, slight nausea but I get that about 50% of the time when AF is starting - ever since I had my DD (I was extremely sick for that entire pregnancy, lost 20lbs). As I mentioned earlier I am pretty sure I didn't even O this month, no LH detected and no EWCM although I did find I have way more CM than normal this month, even now when I usually have none.
I'm just waiting now for AF so I can hopefully start a new cycle and hopefully O this time!
