Wow - what a welcome! Thanks for the kind words!
@alzora - yes, the cyclical nature of this process is emotionally exhausting. While we are enjoying the "trying" part, it really, REALLY sucks to get your hopes up every. single. month just to be let down. And don't get me started on the analyzing of symptoms - sheesh! It wears me out just thinking about doing this again. I wish I could stop - stop thinking so much, stop worrying, stop analyzing. But I guess that is the nature of the beast. It helps to know that I'm not the only one who gets all crazy every month. If this month proved to be unsuccessful, we may seek more help. My period just ended yesterday so I will start my OPK tomorrow - give it the old college try once again! And yes - Jubilee is still one of my favorites. Maybe a guilty pleasure, but it's so fun! Jubal is also fun for a boy - I have a soft spot for boys names that are fun and spunky!
@violetink1231 - The Impatience Express - you couldn't have been chosen a more accurate term! Loving it!
@sarahmezz - Ah, my fellow newly wed! Such a lovely phase of life to me in! I'm trying not to spoil this time with the preoccupation of wanting to be pregnant.
@frances322 - thank you for the encouraging story. I really, REALLY try to tell myself that maybe all we need is more time. It's just beyond frustrating that there is nothing to do but keep trying and then play the waiting game.Newly marrried, looking forward to starting a family!

@jcannoy I know what you mean about not wanting to be pregnant in summer! If I conceive this month I'll deliver at the end of the Australian summer, so my entire third trimester will be during extreme heat - yay. Oh well, my mum did the same with me (my birthday is February 23)!TTC #1

Jcannoy, YES! I completely understand not wanting to be pregnant in the heat. We live in the south and the summer's here are brutal. I tend to be a hot-natured person normally, so forget it in the summer time! (DH and I are always fighting for control of the thermostat. ) Anyway, it shouldn't get too bad here until June, so by my calculations I have at least 2, maybe 3 more chances to avoid being 9 months pregnant in the heat of summer. Good luck to us both!
Sarahmezz, my BiL and SiL just moved to Australia for two years through a military assignment. We are so sad that we can't afford the plane tickets to go and visit them. Right now they are taking a break in Hawaii, before moving over in June. Just had to share. Australia is one of those places I would love to visit. (Of course, we are also hoping we will have another reason not to fly anytime soon, but who knows when that will happen??)

@butterflykisses LOL! I understand I tend to make light of things that bum me out. If I can laugh, then it can't get me down!mamacravings.com

@Frances, your story about your sister-in-law encouraged me too. Thanks for sharing.
@J_cannoy, being pregnant in the heat of summer wouldn't really bother me, but I've thought about how tough it would be to tend to a newborn who is hot, sweaty, and cranky. Don't get me wrong, I'd tend to a newborn any day, but I watched my little sister swaddle her baby in blankets to pacify her in the winter, and that wouldn't be an option for a summer infant!
@Casilayne, I'm sorry to hear your bad news.
@Caseymay, you're definitely not the only one who goes crazy each month. I'm at the point where I'm analyzing symptoms because I'm 8 DPO...and it's not looking good for me this month.
@Sarah, I'll never get used to the idea that Australian and American seasons are opposite each other. If it's too hot in March to be nine months pregnant in Australia, just jaunt on over to Pennsylvania. You'll be begging for summer again!
Is it too early to say that I can feel my period coming? (8 DPO, period expected next Wednesday or Thursday.) I really don't understand the female hormone cycle, so this confuses me: I got a zit the other day, my libido has risen, my legs feel tense like they always get before my period, and I just feel like my period is getting ready in there (I don't know if you'd call it bloated or crampy or tense or figment of my imagination). Implantation occurs around 7-12 DPO, and I am only 8 DPO, so does the fact that I'm having these typical PMS symptoms mean that my window for implantation is closed for this cycle and my body is moving on toward menstruation? Or could these symptoms be happening prior to implantation? I hurt my brain thinking about this.
I've been feeling pretty hopeless about the whole thing though, for a few weeks now. I mean we'll keep trying through the summer, but I really think we need a freaking semen analysis and HSG, which we can't get until September, and I feel like any attempts before that are futile because I think something is wrong. We KNOW his testosterone is low, so that right there is our first red flag. My accident injuries are another. These blind attempts each month are maddening.mid-20s . married to my best friend . trying for our first
