Hate The Waiting Game

My husband and I have been ttc for about over 6 months now. 2 months ago I purchased that Digital Fertility monitor to make sure the days we were really trying were accurate.(love it, btw) I ovulated Nov 28 & 29th and were actively ttc. I normally have a 28 day cycle with a lot of symptoms leading into my period. Instead this month I had slight twinges and cramping for a week straight and br___t soreness only just started. Cramping has now subsided but I never got my period??? Very little spotting on the day after it was due??? Now I am achy, have nausea, br___t soreness, fatigue with no period. I actually feel flu like. Never have been this late? Tested yesterday, and negative. Soo disappointed, so don't feel like testing again anytime soon but I hate waiting. The let down every month is getting harder and harder. Being on this board I know there are so many of you hopefuls like my husband and I. Do you think that I am tricking my body into thinking I am pregnant? Best wishes to all of you out there with the similiar story. We all need to stick together:) :)

Hi Dana! My husband and I have been trying as well, but for not very long! But I do understand about the waiting game!!! I should start tomorrow or Wed. and I wish i could tell what's going to happen. I haven't had any pms symptoms, but for the past two weeks I have had cramps, headaches, thirsty!!! Flu like feeling, which I hate and my back has been killing me!!! So all we can say, is I guess we'll see!!! I ovulated on the same days as well, but I'm a 32 day cycle, I wish my cycle was shorter!!! I have already taken three tests, way too early I believe, but they were even the very sensative ones and I'm bummed, all came out negative, so I think I'll just wait till Friday if I do miss my period! When should you start, it should of been the other day, right???

Leah, Thanks for replying. Glad to hear someone else is with me on this. Waiting is like torture. I am 29, my husband 30 and we have been married for 4 years. I guess when your ready, your ready. We are soo excited to start a family. The let down every month is getting harder, though. I guess it is all in gods plan:) I should of started on Saturday and am not usually late. I usually have very heavy cramping before and this month just very light cramping for a week with no period. Very confusing. Took a test yesterday and nothing but I don't know it was too early, I really do feel like I am prego this month though. Could be my mind playing [email protected]# I will test Friday if you test Friday, how about that? I am soo afraid of another negative with all of these signs. Best Wishes to you:) :)

Oh!! I hope I can pull through until Friday! But what am I talking about, I have to miss my period first, wed. should be the last day I could expect my period, so we'll see, but sure!! I'll wait till Friday! No reason to take one now! Good Luck! I hope you are!!!

 

Dana - December 13

Hi there, Dana i know exactly how you feel. My husband and I have been trying for a year now and it's soo dissappointing when af arrives each month. This time however I have a little more hope. A week ago, I had a little bit of pink discharge and brown spotting for one day. It might have been implantation bleeding. My period was supposed to arrive last Friday however, it is still not here. I am planning to test on Friday as well. I hope the all the best for the three of us. Sometimes I feel like I focus on it too much and should relax my body more. I still get minor cramps that last for about a minute, about 3x a day. My b___sts hurt and i feel nauseated from time to time.... I don't know what too think! I don't like to wait either!

Hello there M! Looks like af for both of us was due around the same time. At the latest yesterday for me. I ofcoarse took a test yesterday. (-) I just have never had af soo late before and soo many signs. So if anything, I am the closest thing to being pregnant this than anytime:) I just don't know why else it hasn't come yet! I just wish I knew either way. Especially if I was, because I just want to enjoy it since we have been trying for so long! I am sure you feel the same way. Well, it looks like all 3 of us have the about the same symptoms and will be testing around Friday. Good luck girls! Lets keep each other in the loop!

Wow, m you have that much will power to not test at all being 1 week late. Gosh I wish I had your strength, I have tested so many times it's outrageous how much money I' ve spent on hpt's I am only late 2 days and I tested the day before and this morning 1 was very very faint line and the other was negative. Will test again tomarrow I don't have that much patients.

 

m - December 13

haha, maybe i'll cheat and just buy a test tomorrow....I guess i'll see. I think if I test on Friday, it might be more reliable! Good luck to you all!

 

m - December 14

no af for me yet!!!! A little crampy though...What's up with everyone else?? Just keep hoping!

 

Leahp - December 14

Hey m, no af for me quite yet either! Tomorrow should be the latest I would expect it, but I have been crampy as well!! Yesterday I felt like I was going to start, my lower back was killing me, but today I'm just having some cramps around my ovaries and in my back, plus I feel fine, I'm not bloated, nor do I have sore b___bs, I don't get it!! I guess we'll wait it out!! UGGHH! I would be awfully surprised if I was because this was our first month of trying, I wouldn't really think it would happen that quickly!! But I almost feel like it could because strangly enough, everyone has been asking if we're pregnant yet?? and all these questions immediatley started after our first night of unprotected s_x, but I also haven't been feeling like myself, I felt fluy again on Friday! So who knows!!! How are you feeling today??

Hi everyone who is ttc! Dana (and everyone else on here!) I have been trying with my hubby for 11 months now, and I do know how hard it is to see "her" come each month. I have always been a very cheerful person but in the last 6 months I don't think I have ever been so depressed. Every thing I see makes me cry and of course ALL my friends are having Babies. It just seems so unfair! I just wanted to let you know that I am right there with you on this waiting game. I wish I had everyone elses signs on here. So far not much has changed this month. Every time I feel a sort of cramp I get my hopes up.. or if my b___bs are a litle sore. It's very confusing because I don't know if that is just in my head or not. I have to wait until the 22nd to find out... so we will see. I hope I am this month. I would love to tell everyone on Christmas Day! Good luck to everyone and you are all in my prayers as you wait....

 

Dana - December 14

Shannon, Hang in there girl....you and I are in a very similiar situation! Nice to know others are feeling the same way and I am not as crazy as I think I am. All of my friends are having babies too and it does make me sad for my husband and I. I guess its just not our time yet. I am usually a very cheerful person too but each month it gets harder and harder. This month, if I am not pregnant which more than likely I am not.....my body is really out of control!!!!! I think anticipating is screwing up my cycles! I would of liked to tell everyone at Christmas too! Oh, well. Lets all stick together and be each others support! I will keep all of you gals in my hopes and prayers too! Good luck:)

 

Leahp - December 14

Hi Shannon!! I'm sooo sorry about your dissappointments in af showing it's face time and again! I know I don't have much experience at this and it's just my first month of ttc but I do know I already drove myself crazy this past month, so my husband cut me off of the baby making after we could of already concieved, but I think he did it for my own good! Maybe give it a break for a few months, go on a trip! My parents had a horrible time trying to get pregnant with me! My dad had a low sperm count so they had to time it just right, well after nine months they were worn out, and gave up well I poped up the next month!!! Your anxiety and stress, plus depression can decrease your chances significantly!!! But Good Luck for the 22nd.!!!!! I know what you mean about Christmas in all, that's what I was hoping for as well!!!

Hi Ladies, well no af yet. Took a test this morning "not pregnant" clear blue digital says but I have read on plenty of reviews that they are not the best to use if you less than one week late. Did you take a test yet m? Well Leah I hope af doesn't come for you fingers crossed and baby dust to all.

 

m - December 14

Hi everyone!! Well still no sign of af for me. I still feel a little crampy.... it feels as if my period is going to to start. But i am now 4 days late and I did have pink and brown spotting a week ago, so that might have been implantation bleeding. I guess we're all in the same boat, so I read. Like I said before, my husband and I have been trying for a year, so that also seems like a lengthy time. However, i don't think we should give up hope. I just found out my cousin is expecting after trying for 5 years!!!! so there's hope for us!!!

 

Dana - December 14

M-nice to hear good news about your cousin after 5 years!!! Wow-thats great! Here is my question to you? What do you cramps feel like? I too am about 4 days late, have been slightly cramping for over a week there just getting worse and lower! I only started to spot a couple of days ago. Today I feel like total c___p as if yesterday and today I have like the flu? Maybe af is coming-who knows at this point!!! I am getting so frustruated!!!
