No one's had any Christmas day BFP's?
I've had a tough few days. DH's turned 30 couple of days ago, and 2 years ago he told me that he wanted to have a child or at least be pregnant by his 30th birthday. He told me that he was hoping that I'd forgotten him saying that sad.gif If only we knew how long our journey was going to be.
Then today another family member announced their pregnancy, after trying for 2 months. Crushed me, as I was really hoping that I would get to surprise DH on his 30th with a BFP and then let the family know at Christmas.
Sorry for the un-merry vent. I just really need a hug from people who understand.

Well, the circus finally came to town, a day late, after a morning of nausea and headaches, right when I was changing into my swimsuit for a Christmas dip. LOL. I spent the entire morning wondering if I was in fact pregnant and maybe the tests weren't working but NOPE. So cycle 2 begins.

Merry Christmas everyone, and best baby luck to you all!

Oh Christine - bummer! I guess those 'funny pains' were AF pains for both of us!  We must be in sync this month!    

Kpingitquiet- sorry George showed up for you too - especially when it sounded like so many eps! Grr... Silly bodies!!

Hoping - Big, big hugs for you bbighug.gif

Min - hope work went quick & you had a great Christmas for the rest of the day!

Everyone else, I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas original.gif

Despite AF (which I'm not feeling too bad about), I have had a pretty good day. Spent lots of time with family, which is lovely. Miss having any kiddies around, as Christmas doesn't feel quite so special without them, but it was good anyway. FX we'll all have our own by next Christmas (or at least in the making!).

Big Christmas hugs for everyone bbighug.gif

Hop everyone is enjoying their boxing day. Sounds like quite a few have been quite civil to George, which is lovely.

Hoping i'm sorry to hear you've had a rough time lately. Those self-imposed age deadlines are so dangerous aren't they. I'm pretty sure i'm going to have to abandon my 'two kids by 35' target.

AFM, in the 2ww, which is so much easier to handle when you're on holidays with lots of distractions. I'm very hungry and tired (just had a nap, and I never nap) but I think both are Xmas related.

Ooh Gemcat - celebration for us - we've both just passed the 100 post mark & have been upgraded from New Members to Members!!!!! (Ok, ok, George is here for me, I've gotta find any way of celebrating that I can original.gif )

FX for your 2WW Gemcat original.gif

I've just had a quick stalk - just because I can't help myself - and it sound like Kerri, who advised she would test last Sunday 23rd, has not come back because she found out earlier in the month that she's UTD, due mid August!!! Yay!

Akadia & myboys, would love to know how you've gone with testing (if you tested Christmas Eve & Christmas Day that is). Hope you had good news!

bbighug.gif  hhugs.gif  bbighug.gif  hhugs.gif  I so totally understand and relate.  I wanted to finish having my 2.3 kids by 35 and tbh the chance that I'll be holding our bundle of bub before I'm 36 is so infinitesimal as to be essentially non-existent.  It's rough.  AND one of my close friends will have her second before I'm even UTD.  TTC can be totally soul suckingly awful but the rewards are so totally worth it.  We will get there  yyes.gif

here is something for you ladies

TTC Signs
SOME PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND THE OBSESSION THAT CAN COME FROM TTC AND HOW CRAZY YOU FEEL AFTER AWHILE TRYING!

Funny TTC signs

- The Big 'O' no longer refers to orgasm, but instead to ovulation

- You show everyone who will look at your BBT charts

- Every twinge is a potential sign: ovulation pain OR perhaps implantation

- It no longer strikes you as the least bit odd to check out at the pharmacy with both HPTs and tampons in your cart.

- You schedule your social events around your ovulation day

- If your OPK comes up +, you cancel all social engagements that night so you can BD & lie with your legs elevated and butt up in the air afterwards

- You talk using mysterious acronymns that only your TTC buddies understand: TTC, BD, EWCM, BBT,OPK, 2WW

- Your morning motto is: "Don't talk to me until I've taken my temperature"

- You take your temperature more than once a day (committed TTCer)

- You refuse to finish decorating that third bedroom in your new house, because you can't stand the thought of getting it just the way you want it only to have to tear it apart next month in order to make room for the nursery you'll be needing.

- You put off buying any Autumn/Winter clothes, because you hope they won't fit by the time the weather gets cooler.

- Your doctor says, "Now take these home and inject this needle into your stomach every day" and you don't even flinch.

- You spend more on OPKs, HPTs, and fertility supplements than you do on clothes

- The thought of nausea makes your heart skip a beat!

- You make a mental note of what day of your cycle it is before you say OK to a drink

- You get sick but make sure you can take the medicine in case you are pregnant...and would rather stay sick if you can't take the medicine..

- You finally look forward to mornings! Another opportunity to take and record your temp!

- You refer (and think) of your husband, not as his real name, but as the letters "DH" in real life

- You suffer silently from Infertility Vision (IV) - defined as the ability to see pink lines that nobody else can see. It's a very common condition among POASers during the days leading up to the official test day. Research is still being done, but at present there is no cure for it!
