@Witchy
What brand did you buy? I think the hardest part about all this is the uncertainty. Even with all the tracking and testing, everything is still just a guess. I'm deep in the trenches of "try not to stress out". I've been taking my temps this cycle and now it looks like I didn't O because my temps haven't shifted even though I got all the other signs (+lol, ewcm, high soft cp...i think, o pain). Me and DH wore ourselves out BD'ing around O time and now I'm like... this can't seriously have been for nothing. To not even have O'ed? What a huge whale of a disappointment that is �� Even if I O late I don't even feel like I have it in me to do all this again...or go to DH and be like "oh right...remember that time I told you I O'ed...just kidding. NOW I really did. You can trust me this time" lol

I'm still not charting temps, I want to keep some hope that I am ovulating. My poor ovaries have been working since I was 10 and I hope they haven't run out of eggs. But if I don't stay pregnant in next few months I'll try that too. And let me not even start on BD, I really envy all the oopsie-ladies who didn't have to put all this work and planning into getting a BFP.

Also lol on that last sentance xD

I'm definitely jealous of oopsie-ladies haha I love that name for those lucky ducks. I did go to DH and tell him that I wasn't sure if I had O'ed or not and he took it rather well. Not even a hint of the exasperation I felt. I think I married above my station, guys. He is totally a better person than I

I've also had the same head and chest cold all month so I'm wondering if that is messing with my temps? Between mouth breathing and not sleeping well, idk how trustworthy my temps are this cycle anyway Anywho we are going to keep chugging along and BD'ing every other day until I get a temp raise or I took an OPK this morning and it was neg and no fertile CM. I've had weird O-like pains all day, not quite cramps, but really achy. Hopefully that means there's something going on in the baby factory

I just noticed you asked about OPK brand - One Step. Bought like 100 + 30 HPTs (same brand, really cheap on ebay) but then I read that they might not show OPK line as dark as it should. But it went from light to medium to light again, so I guess it does something, just not as it should. When I see those 2 lines next time, it will be time for BD every other day just in case xD

Keeping my fingers crossed for our baby factories, may the odds ever be in their favor xD

You know, I've never checked my cervix - not because I don't want to, but mostly because I wouldn't even know what the heck I'm looking for, ahah! I'd also be interested in some tips and tricks.
So thankful to also have a very supportive partner. I don't think he's as upset as I am that it's taking so long. I think once we get to the 18 month mark, it might start to wear on him. We've talked about what might happen if we can't get pregnant and would very much be into adoption. It brings me alot of comfort knowing that there isn't pressure or blame coming from him.

Hey everyone! TTC #1 for about one year now, recently diagnosed with PCOS, but trying to stay somewhat positive. Some days are better than others, but man oh man is it hard to stay positive.

Welcome sunshinerae20 ! We'll keep hope alive with you

Where is everyone else in their cycle?! I'm 9dpo. I thought I was 10dpo, but FF "recalculated" this morning when I put in my temps and thinks I O'ed a day later. I'm determined not to symptom spot or test early. I'm tired of driving myself crazy. Who says the TWW can't be relaxing Im going to take the advice of some very wise British guys and Let it be haha How's it going Witchy? cowgirlbaby? Any others in the TWW with me?

Witchy that all sounds really exciting! I'm sure hubs doesn't mind too much about your split personality haha I think that's the case for all of us. I'm not experiencing really any symptoms this month so I'm thinking it's a no-go for this cycle, but lord knows I have had plenty of symptoms before and it was still nothing so...just trying to have patience. We all find out soon enough. No need burning myself out staring at start white HPTs lol It helps that I have a metric ton of work to do to take my mind off of it. What are you thinking about studying?

I'm studying web development. I love that work and there is so much to learn and I want to make bunch of projects so if this baby thing doesn't happen in next 6 months I'll probably start looking for a job. By then I'll have enough projects to show something to future employers. But ideally I'd love to have kid and stay at home while freelancing for their first 3 years and then go and work. But being at home all the time with no goal would drive me crazy long term, so I have these two things. We'll see what will happen first
