    I feel the same way.... technically 4 months is nothing but it feels like forever.

    Are you doing a opk? I did a 20 day opk this month and found out I ov on day 19/20 vs. the day 14 that I assumed.

    Good luck!

    Using OPK's help a lot. I am irregular and would never ever know when I ovulate if it was not for those things. I use Clear Blue Digital. More expensive, but you dont have to do the guessing game.

    I go with the odds. There's a 20% chance of getting pregnant with each cycle (when you're healthy and in your 20s)... this means that taking at least five months before becoming pregnant is considered to be pretty "normal". I know it's difficult, but try to stay positive and relaxed about the whole thing. Even if it takes twice as long, the time elapsing right now will not be noticed in the slightest when your LO starts getting older. What's the real difference having a teenager born in February compared to one born in October of the same year?

    (this is what I tell myself at least in preparation just in case) GL!

    That's a great way to look at it. I wish it didn't feel like ten years anyway ;)

    the clear blue digital is great.... either you get an empty circle or a smiley.

    i bought the 20 day kit on amazon for $25.... the prior month, i paid $25 for a 7 day at walmart.
