So even though I'm now 8 days late I got another BFN this morning.
I'm so sick of TTC its been 16 long months of hideous tests, temping, opk's and TWW's, I've given up alcohol and caffeine and it feels like my sanity too!
I'm really trying to hold it together at work but I feel so fed up with it all, how do you all stay sane? seriously need some tips!

I want to say some magic words to you to make it better but I know I can't so I will just send out virtual hugs and let you know I'm listening. I got another BFN this morning too, three days late and about 13DPO. I have also given up caffeine and alcohol and now seriously debating giving up f*****g sugar too lol x

Thank you LookingAtTheStars89 I've barely eaten any sugar for months too, it's so annoying as TTC is so stressful I could really do with a glass of wine or at least a cup of tea & a biscuit! Sorry you got a BFN this morning too, seems its not a lucky day sad
It feels good to vent on here! fingers crossed for next month now!

This sounds like a dumb question but what happens to your cycle if you miss a period? Do you just miss it and then ovulate again or do you have to wait for flo to show before you ovulate again?
Grrr! I wish I'd used OPK's this month so I was sure when I ovulated! This is my first proper cycle after a MMM so I don't know if that messes things about x

Sorry I meant mmc x

I'm sorry about your MMC, I think if you miss a period it means you haven't ovulated that month which is why I'm so frustrated after DTD sooo much I feel like it was all for nothing!
I'm no expert though & I feel like I'm going slowly mad so maybe not the best person to ask confused
I just wish AF would come now so I can start again, this in between stage is the worst.
If it helps I used opk's this month and it hasn't helped so don't beat yourself up, I think sometimes it's good not to focus on the tests too much x

flowers I'm 19 months TTC now, for the last year my cycles have been irregular due to medication I've been on (which I'm now stopping YAY) my understanding is that AF is 2 weeks after ovulation so you have to wait for ovulation before you get AF. I'm currently on cd 66 and started with OMS symptoms yesterday so am thinking we may have missed the window. Just can't keep it up dtd regularly for such long cycles!

I know DTD used to be fun! for so long we really tried not to make it 'a chore' but it does get harder as the months go on, I long for the day when we can start DTD just for fun again!
According to the opk's I ovulated 3 weeks ago so really don't know whats going on. I hope your cycles regulate now, it's even harder when you can't tell if your late or just having a long cycle!
