The longest two weeks


Hello ladies, first time here after MC back in June. The last couple of months have been a downhill ride for my general mood, the thought that "it's just never going to happen for us" was all that was going on in my head.
For 5-6 weeks now though, we have been trying to do a lot. I was under a traditional chinese medicine therapy that is supposed to increase fertility, I've been eating the "right" food, cut off any alcohol and almost no coffee, been keeping myself in good physical health as usual; both hubs and I.
Last week was my ovulation week and we were doing the dance as much as we could, I was drinking tcm soups and my dr has already put me on progesterone for about a week now.
I am about 4 dpo now, I feel slight tingle around my navel area, I know it's all in my head but this wait is killing me!
What kind of super early symptoms are you experiencing? Is there anyone out here who would like to hold hands during these times?
Hubs is just so hopeful this time, we literally did all we could I guess.

It sounds like you're doing everything right! Just remember that even under ideal circumstances, your chances are something like 30%, so I hope that hubs won't be too let down if your first month using aids doesn't work. Just stick with it. But I sincerely hope that it will be your month, this is a great time of year and I've had good feelings about it!

I'll wait with you

This month DH and I have kind of taken an opposite approach to you haha, we tried to just be chill about the whole thing (easier said than done). But this month I actually had 5 straight days of EWCM, which I've never had before. It made knowing when to BD easy, and we did some extra after it dried up just in case

Then I had the normal nausea/cramping that I usually get with O from other cycles with temping to be sure. So even though I didn't temp this month I'm pretty positive today is 2dpo.

I'm having some mild cramping but nothing crazy. Feels like every month I symptom spot and there's always something new but never a BFP -_- So I try not to do it anymore haha

How long have you been TTC?

Thanks Dill, ah yeah I'm aware of those 30ish%, not sure if hubs is though, he really thinks this is it. But I think he'd be ok even if nothing happens; during the times of MC he stayed pretty cool headed and positive, so we'll see.

Sander, fx! How are your dates this month? Do you plan to test or just pray AF never shows? We've been kinda TTC since say May last year, although not really following any calendars, just not using protection. Then since the MC this June, this is our second month I guess.

I think I'm just going to hope af doesn't show - I'm due Sep 24, and I really don't want to test early because I had a bad experience with an evap last month that was super disappointing

How about you when is your test date?

We've been TTC since May this year. So sorry about your mc, I can't even imagine

Please don't imagine, praying it never happens to you!

AF is due Sept 22, I have decided to do an earlyish test on the 17th and see what happens. Ah yeah, if negatives bring you down, better not test and try to keep busy with other thoughts. Although geez if I could I'd test every day, I'm THAT unable to wait.

Ohh high five then! I have a huge amount of those tiny paper stick thingies, they usually give them out for free when I buy regular or O tracking sticks, sooooo.... Pretty sure I'm gonna start abusing them some time this week. I save the 17th for the digital test lol.
