I don't get it. Another couple I know is pregnant. And they are 2 truly messed up people, they've been together off and on for years and years, been engaged and then called it off, one has been in the psych ward for trying to commit suicide, now he's on probabtion for assaulting someone and can't be out past 9 PM without his mother supervising him. They have no ambition, no goals, they get by with the bare minimum of making ends meet, they're selfish self-centered people who are so frickin unstable it's crazy! Why? Why them and not people like us? It just makes no sense at all! That poor baby is going to be born into a world of chaos and serious disfunction- it's not that I think 'oh they don't deserve it and I do' it's that they are so irresponsible and careless I can't imagine how they're going to take care of a child!! ARGH!!!!!
Trying- I totally understand! That poor baby! I cancelled FB about a month ago because I couldn't handle seeing all these people get prego that I didn't think should be prego. And to be honest I LOVE not having FB. I feel like I am finally focused on me and DH and not everyone else in the world!
AFM, Dark OPK this morning. I must drink too much water to do it at night. I pee like every 45 min so to hold it for long is hard for me. Anyways, glad it went back to dark this morning. Now if it would just go pos and not just dark. However I LOVE my temps this month! They are actually stable for once. I think it is because I am more relaxed about getting prego this month because I have a specialist apt in 10 days and I know it will calm me down. I look forward to the apt.
Question: what do your O cramps feel like? Mine feel like very light AF cramps this month. Usually they feel different, so not sure what is up. Maybe the vit makes it feel different then I am used to.
Last, it feels good that my DH is so into having a baby too! I just love it. Sometimes I look at the "relationship" forum on this site and people talk about their DH isn't ready or doesn't want to have a baby. It makes me feel so good that he is right by my side. This morning he got out of the car and was "adjusting" himself more then usual and I said "whats going on". He said I am wearing boxers today.... I thought that was cute. Without me asking he knew it was best to wear boxers around O time instead of boxer-briefs. He also takes a man's vit to help out and he is so on top of taking it three times a day! I just love it!
Golds- Your story about your DH just brought some light to this very dark start to my day and I think that's so great that your man is doing his part to help in the process. Mine's more like "oooh I get sex! horay for trying to make a baby!" and that's about it LOL. Glad your OPK's are getting darker, and your temps are looking good!
I had a few days of real light cramping this month around O, did feel like AF type cramps, with a few moments of sharper pain on one specific side.
Today I've had some pulling on my right side, like a pulled muscle almost? And some twinges on my right side lower abdomen.
3 or 4 DPO I think, depends what day O happened. I was super exhaused last night, was sleeping by 9 PM, slept all night without interruption. My stomach is churning this morning, making all kinds of weird noises and I feel crappy. Was crying already this morning, so yeah I dunno. Kind of feels similiar I guess? But those could all be related to other things. Wasn't going to say anything because this is kind of weird to notice but I went to the ladies room this morning and I didn't bother looking at the TP but when I was about to flush a dark spot on the TP in the bowl caught my eye and it looked like maybe a blood spot but the TP was upside down in the water. So I couldn't say for sure if it was or not because it's also pretty dark in our work bathroom. Trying not to think about it too much, like I said, could all be related to other things.
Trying - I totally relate to you... my cousins have two and are trying for more. Now granted, they are sweet people and great parents, but they are sooo young, he has a retail job and she doesn't work. His parents (my aunt and uncle) support them fully, and my cousin's wife acts like they are over-bearing and too much in their business. It is irritating... I get wanting to have kids, but shouldn't having a stable job come first? When they had the first one, he was completely unemployed!
And I am sorry you had a dark morning. I can't imagine the pain and ups-and-downs you must go through. Just know everyone here will always listen to you and support you. I am praying this is the time for all of us! *HUGS FOR YOU!*
Is it ok if I join you? I've just had my first ever positive OPT after 16 months of ttc with anovulatory cycles due to pcos (I had laproscapy, hystrscopy and Ovarian Drilling last month)! It's pretty fair to say I'm on top of the world right now
I'm really hoping that my temps will confirm that I O within the next two days which means I will be testing around the 28th/29th of Feb. I'm super excited to be in my first ever two week wait.
Thanks Bubs- yes it can be so hard to watch the one's that just don't seem ready or equipt to be parents, not that they aren't good people, but sometimes I just think people should be more responsible and wait until they're truly ready. But yeah these people, they REALLY shouldn't be having kids, they are beyond not ready or equipt and it's so frustrating to see. But yes I have all of you, and you all know exactly how it feels! Thank God for you girls!
