T & P - Stupid 2ww :)

Hi all - well, I am in the dreaded 2 week wait after TTC our first cycle. I have through Sat before I am "late." Unfortunately, unlike normal women haha, I can't test until 3 weeks. I am on hcg injections so any test would come back positive even if no baby is there.

Although we did use one fertile day, we probably could have covered our bases a little more (I still have thyroid tests to run so we were both a little hesitant but not wanting to wait forever). But yeah, I am waiting for a let down. My body is already signaling that this cycle is a bust, so I am more posting for moral support than in anticipation of an announcement. Blah. :)

Thanks for "listening." For obvious reasons, no one really knows we're waiting on news except my husband and the loneliness factor is starting to get to me! 

Re: T & P - Stupid 2ww :)

  • Don't worry... as they say, a watched pot never boils... try not to focus too much on it.  I know, easier said than done, but if you stress yourself it might get in the way of conception, especially if you already have health concerns.  GL!

  • I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you! I am excited that you are finally able to try (is that weird, I don't mean it to be!) and hope that it works out for you.

  • Thanks temurlang and raangoli :).

    It is TOUGH not to think about it lol mostly because my body is acting crazy! I had two days of unusual spotting - as in my body never does this (implying implantation bleeding but I don't want to get my hopes up) and for the past four days have had constant abdominal aches, pains, indigestion. It's frustrating because this could just be a severe case of PMS... it's really a toss-up... I am just not normally this consistently miserable or "reminded" of my cycle if that makes sense. :)

    I am also on vacation with the family which helps but then I am not drinking coffee or alcohol - two highly unusual moves for me. I know plenty of ladies consume these things before knowing they are pregnant and are fine, but I just feel a little weird about it. :)

  • Keep your head up. My DH kept rubbing my belly and saying "baby?' "baby?" and I kept saying, "No, I don't think so... I think aunt flow is visiting instead." because I honestly felt like AF was coming and I didn't feel any symptoms of pregnancy.... turns out, we were going to be expecting a baby soon enough. I'll keep you in my T&P and I pray that you have luck very soon!!

  • oh... and I had EVERY symptom of getting my period, down to dizziness, nausea, cramps, etc... I just didn't bleed at all.

  • Awh - I was right with you last week.  Unfortunately no luck  as of yesterday.  I'm ready to try again next week. I don't think there is any way not to get excited and hopeful. I thought every pang was implantation so I get ya. Hang in there  - you will know soon enough!

  • Sending you some baby dust!

    Honestly, DH and I only used one of our fertile days, so I was totally not expecting to get pregnant.  I had every symptom of a period, and even bleed for 4 days when I was supposed to have my period (it was much, much lighter than normal).  The only reason why I even knew I was pregnant was because I was temping and my temperature did not drop when the bleeding started.

    Hopefully these two weeks aren't so terrible.  Try not to think about it!

  • Faith - I am definitely feeling like you felt. EVERY symptom of AF visiting doubled. I've never been this crampy. So yeah, we'll see. :) I am so glad you got good news so quickly!

    Bella - aw, I am sorry this cycle didn't happen but I am sending t &p your way for this next one! It *is* so hard to hope and yet not hope too much. I hope we both have announcements soon enough. :)

    Catarntina - wow, that's encouraging that you only used one fertile day. The biggest reason I've been a smidgeon hopeful is because we used my peak day, so statistically our chances go up. But yeah again... one day lol. Dh actually wanted to try more, and I chickened out (regret that!).  I've also read some women can spot during pregnancy. Very neat you were able to tell by charting because that "period" would certainly make it tough to tell. Right now my biggest "hope" haha is that unusual bleeding after peak (which of course, was totally different than a period).

  • GL and baby dust your way!!

    We conceived on one and only try, I wasn't even positive it was a fertile day because I never did charting or anything but I thought it might be so we did it and wham! it worked! You're right it is IMPOSSIBLE not to think about it! And time goes sooo slow!! The one thing that made me think I might be pregnant was my boobs got sore 1 week before AF was due, normally this wouldn't happen for me until 2 or so days before AF. But in my head of course I kept thinking "No I'm not pregnant" and trying not to get my hopes up.

  • Fingers crossed for you!

    I feel like there's so much TTC'ing on this board, and I'm jealous a teensy bit.  But happy for all of you just the same!

     I had so many symptoms for 2 weeks prior to AF. It was our first month really trying and the 2WW was awful. My DH kept saying "No baby?" when I came downstairs and I said no. I didn't realize how bummed I would have been after the first month or that my DH would be bummed. Maybe it will be this month......

  • ANBJTC - I hear you. I really think our bodies can be downright cruel. And I was so hesitant at first and now I know I will be sad if it doesn't work out. :(

    I had a glass of wine today because I had a very unusual brown discharge and felt like this is it, this cycle must be over. I was sooo sad. Now, I am reading on the oh-so-reliable internet (haha) that it really isn't over until AF and that some women do get this unusual brown discharge when they are still pregnant. I have to laugh to keep from crying. My body is t-o-r-m-e-n-t-i-n-g me with all sorts of craziness and confusion (I mean I've  been charting for almost a year and have never had a chart like this). I have a new found respect for ladies with subfertility trying month after month... this is a lot to deal with.

    Tomorrow will be day 14 post-peak. I've never had a post-peak phase longer than 14 days. If AF doesn't arrive by Sunday then I guess I'll let my hopes go up again.

  • Zara!  Don't think of it as getting your hopes up, think of it as being positive.  I tested one week and they were all negative (I had a very faint, almost non-existent line on one but convinced my self it was an evaporation line).  I was crying, thought there was something wrong with me, just really down.  The next week I got the bfp I was waiting for.  It took us 4 months of trying, so I know the feeling of the let down when af comes, just keep your head up.  You have no idea the things God has in store for you.  His timing is better than ours!

  • jmkes  so true about His timing being best! :) My sister's third child took a couple cycles. She was bummed when she had her first BFN ever. But her third is one of the most cuddly, loving, happy, outgoing, fun babies I've ever met (he's just under 2 years old now). I mean he's a ray of giggly, affectionate sunshine. If she had conceived on her first try, she wouldn't have had this little guy (crazy to think about, huh? :)). SOOO happy for you and your BFP. :) Your story is very encouraging for me!
  • ANBJTC and Zara-

    So sorry that this turned out not to be the month, but know that I'm still keeping you both in my T & Ps as next month approaches. Another month to prepare and plan. I'm praying you both get your BFPs soon and that this next month is smooth for you :)
