So I am crazy

Because obviously I made up all the symptoms I had over the past 2 weeks. I don't know how many more cycles I can take of this. It really hit hard this time. I thought this was our month....Oh well..CD 1 and I guess we are getting the swamp land so maybe I will turn my focus to that. And for your viewing pleasure...this is what happens to an insane woman trying to have a baby....these are all the tests I took during the TWW (two week wait)

You know I love you (my readers!) because I share my insanity with you. :) I believe this will prove that I am certifiable.


  1. I remember going through that. Hang in there and don't stress too much. When I was trying to have a baby I was under so much stress that it took me 2 1/2 years to conceive. Once I stopped worrying about it then it happened. Hang in there.

  2. I am about at the point of not trying. It's putting a strain on me and our marriage. not to mention the HUGE let down every month. It's getting harder to handle and I have the hangover today to prove it. :( Thank you for sharing though. It helps every time I hear someone as went through the same thing and had a good outcome.

  3. Stress can have such a huge effect on the body and mind... add in all the temp and mucus checking, ovulation kits, when to have sex or not.. I can see where it can become completely overwhelming.

    I say, scrap the charts. Scrap the thermometers and tests. If AF is relatively regular, just figure out when you are "probably" ovulating (I do chart on mymonthlycycles.com just to see when the "danger" days are, hah.. danger for me, since I do NOT want to be pregnant...) have crazy sex for a couple days, and then just enjoy the in-between time with your husband and daughter.

    Jennie, this is from my heart, I do want to see you have a happy healthy pregnancy, but I do worry about your neuroses about it! You've only been married for just about a year now, and I know you haven't been ACTIVEly trying the ENTIRE time (or maybe you have?), but it's still been less than 12 months.

    I know this isn't a very good analogy, but I would kill to meet a guy and have a happy relationship, but I realized that there are so many other more important things for me to spend my time and energy on than trying to meet a guy. If it's meant to happen, it'll happen, and who knows, maybe 3 yrs from now I'll be more secure and better equipped to make searching a higher priority..

    Aaanyway, sorry that got so long!! Just wanted you to know I'm on your side :)

  4. Yeah we have been actively trying the entire year. With the miscarriage in between. With the infertility issues we have we have to time the sex to not waste any. And I promise..it isn't as bad as it appears. I am neurotic about a lot of other things too. it's my nature. It pisses me off to no end that for probably the first time in my life I'm not getting what I want....when I want it!! I know, I'm spoiled. Lol. Aw well. I would be bored to tears if I didn't chart and temp and pee on my sticks. I'd have to find something else to take up my time.
