@nowakasia, @alzora, @khaatje, & @milasmamma - Hopefully your TTWs go by quickly! I’ve got my fingers crossed for all of you!
@beatrixdaisy- I know that it seems like every failed month is just a big waste of time, but hang in there! We’re all here for you when you need to vent and you will find that we all feel the same way about AF. I hope you get your BFP soon!
@frances- Well said! Here’s looking at July!
Right now I am two days late, but that doesn’t mean anything. My last cycle was 28 days, but two months before that I had one that was 31 days. My body does what it wants, when it wants. It has no master.
Right now I think I may test tomorrow morning, but I’m not hopeful. Honestly, after trying this long I think I would be in total shock if I actually got a BFP. I think when (if) it does happen, I will be one of those women who have to test five or six times to believe it.
Anyway, I will let you ladies know tomorrow. But I'm not getting my hopes up.

@beatrixdaisy TTC is extremely hard. I started mid May.. So I'm also still new to this but it really sucks seeing a BFN on the tests!
I totally had myself convinced I was pregnant last week. I had a slew of symptoms (probably all in my head) and random symps like forgetfulness (cer bad forgetfulness! Out of the blue) and then my super short more-like-spotting period that I wanted to believe was implantation but yielded a negative test. Big sad face! I think the hardest part is when you want it so bad you over analyze everything and see things that aren't there.
Big hugs to everyone TTC! So glad I have this forum to chat on in this trying time!Shannon, recently married my BFF and TTC our first <3

@beatrixdaisy - I'll just reiterate what everyone else has said and let you know it's completely normal to feel disappointed after a BFN. I've been trying since April (three cycles) and took last month's negative particularly badly. I know it sounds trite, but it will happen for you soon.
I had a doctor's appointment last night. Not really because of TTC, but I got a whooping cough vaccine, which my doctor said I should get before I get pregnant. I'll be going back for a varicella (chicken pox) vaccine in a month, if I'm not pregnant. I told the doctor we've been trying for a few months without success and he said exactly what I thought he'd say - "Don't worry, these things take time, most couples don't get pregnant for several months". So, we'll just keep doing what we're doing and hope July is lucky for us!
P.S. Frances, will the fireworks of July work for me in Australia? LOL

Of course Sarahmezz! Hahahaha. Yes, I will purposely think of you when watching the fireworks this year, and send you some Happy Independence Day vibes from the USA.
Alzora, I think you are being very smart about your decision to continue to try without over analyzing. You are in the home stretch my dear. I mean less than 3 months until you can start getting some additional support, and hopefully, some answers. I'm sending you some firework sparkles too! (I think you live in Canada, right? Sorry if I've just confused you with someone else.)
Hubby and I are about to take our week long vacation with Hal. My entire family is going, so it should be madness. (4 adult kids, all with spouses, and 5 children under the age of 3, with one in utero, plus my parents, of course.) Anyway, I've made the difficult decision to 'unplug' and not bring our laptop with us. (I'm soooo sad, even as I type that!) So, if I don't post for awhile, that is why. I'm really hoping to have some BFP news when I get back. (If I don't see AF by Sat., July 6th, I'm taking a pregnancy test, which is perfect timing, because it's the day we leave, headed home.) Of course, I'll keep you all posted. I'm afraid I might take a BFN a lot harder this month. I'm not sure why, other than I just have 'felt' different, so I've really gotten my hopes up. (Always so dangerous!) I hope I get to hear good news from some of you when I return as well.
P.S. This might sound strange, and sort of stalkerish, but I'm going to miss you ladies.Mother of Harold Jonathan, nn Hal

Good luck to everyone else waiting! Technically I should be able to test on the 30th, but my pregnancy tests still haven't arrived from the UK so I may just have to be patient. Or I guess I'll get my period -whichever one comes first. I had a very brief wave of nausea looking at some food today - funny how TTC warps your brain! Previously I would have thought nothing of it, now I'm thinking "Ooh! Pregnant!" quickly followed by "Don't get your hopes up!"
@frances, have a great holiday! Where are you off to? We just got back from a 3 day mini-break at a different resort in the Maldives, it was so lovely and I was very sad to leave.
@sarah, I read somewhere that couples TTC for the first time take an average of 7 months. No idea if that's true or not.
@khaatje, sorry to hear about your hip. I have arthritis in my hip and carrying a 3 year old around on my hip quite often hasn't helped (surprise, surprise). I am a bit worried about how well my hip will fare this pregnancy, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see.Mother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014
