Does anyone know how to read temps if you have had a restless nights sleep? I am nearly 100% certain I ovulated yesterday and was excited to see my temp go up- which it did. But I also didn't sleep very well and was tossing and turning all night....
So I know I should be patient and see if my temp stays high but just thought I would see if any of you know how reliable that temp is?
Yes I guess I just need to be patient to see if my temps go up/stay high...I do think I did though. As my CP has gone from high soft and open to low firm and open- which has been happening the day after I ovulate for the past few months.
Hello ladies! Coming over from February thread and just chilling here. Going to try and get fertility aid this month or cycle to try and boost chances, and also will get opks to try and find out where I'm ovulating better. I'm actually quarter Irish and quarter Scottish, so maybe my Irish luck will come in handy this cycle. Despite the Scottish part hating St. Patties, Which I personally love my Irish really comes out near March :3
Wish you all a great cycle, still don't know when I'll be testing (going through AF now) probably after St. Patties some time so maybe 15th or 16th.
The worst part of the TWW for me is that I think I get all these symptoms and convince myself I am pregnant and yet I have never gotten a positive pregnancy test, so it must all be in my head. The best thing for me to do would be to continue to take good care of my body but try not think about whether I am pregnant all the time and not overanalyze every minor change my body experiences. It's just really hard to do that!
Hey Lar I'm about the same. Symptom spotting makes the TWW so much harder. I think after 18 cycles and no pregnancies I'm getting the hang of it lol. I just remind myself that I'm never pregnant and I'm probably not pregnant now and then sure enough I'm not lol. I know it sounds terrible, but it works good to keep my expectations in check, and then I'm not so devastated when AF shows. I think if I ever do get pregnant I will be flat out shocked and won't be able to believe it.
I'm wishing you the best of luck this cycle with your IUI! I think if I were pursuing treatment it would be that much harder to keep my expectations in check!
I have heard so many stories about ladies doing EVERYTHING to get pregnant and succeeding as soon as they give up. The couple we bought our house from were TTC for years and got pregnant the cycle they signed open adoption papers. The babies were born 3 months apart!!! Totally crazy.
What I'm trying to get at here is symptom spotting is a form of stressing, and stress = bad when you're TTC
like you said, Lar, everyone TTC would be so much better off spending their mental/emotional energy on improving their health rather than recording current health symptoms.
I've been cooking a lot since I started this TWW. I spent a little time researching the best foods for conception/implantation/early pregnancy and have been focusing on recipes with them!
This is my first time really in the TWW. We had a possible whoops last month but I only started thinking about it when my AF didn't show- although it was just late!
I couldn't sleep last night as I was so excited/nervous so I cannot imagine what it is like when you have been through it several times. I am so sorry you haven't got your BFP yet Lar and Belle- but I am sure it will happen- baby dust to you all!
I think it is right about the stress not being optimal and I am doing my best to keep calm. I actually did some mindfulness today for the first time ever and surprisingly (I was VERY skeptical) feel much calmer. Maybe give it a go- I used the app Headspace.
I LOVE the idea of making recipes with TWW friendly food! Thanks for that! I feel I am going to go insane during this TWW and I am only 1 dpo
Sorry if I seem silly going on about how nervewracking the TWW is when it is my first one when some of you ladies have been trying for a while. I know I shouldn't be stressing yet...
