@December, my LH level usually peaks for a day and a half; I don't know if that's average for women, but if so, you'll get a 7:00 pm positive. I've never tried testing in first-morning urine, but I feel like I WOULD get a positive during my most fertile day each cycle. Good luck! Where are you at in your cycle right now? Is your fertile window approaching?
@Nowakasia... ! I'm so sorry that you're having such disappointments! I can relate to that fear that you are about to hit a wall with no recourse. BUT, you haven't tried it at 150mg yet, so let's think positive thoughts about that. If--IF--it doesn't work, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. For right now, we'll assume that you are ovulating next cycle! As for the bills...scary scary. Are you able to start paying off any of the smaller bills, to kind of keep them from piling up to an overwhelming level? Maybe you can speak with a supervisor next time you call your insurance company? My heart is hurting for you, because TTC is stressful enough to begin with, so when fears of infertility and medical bills are added on top of that, it is stifling. You can vent here. Some of us are all too familiar with those fears.
Today I'm about 10 DPO, and all signs point to a coming period, expected Tuesday. Each month, in the week before my period comes, I get menstrual cramps first thing in the morning that go away by the time I am showering, and then return late at night as I'm climbing into bed. I'm having the exact same cramping pattern this month. Why is that--why are the cramps concentrated to early mornings and late nights, but absent throughout the day?? The only different symptom I've had this cycle is that my boobs remain mildly sore--now only at night as I'm climbing into bed--and I've felt a bit achy in my lower back late at night. Both could very well just be PMS, and given the intensity of the menstrual cramps, that's the way I'm leaning. Also my boobs could be sore because I've been squeezing them all day long. The soreness has faded so much that I've had to squeeze harder and harder to feel it...lol. Yep, I'd say there's a decent chance that I am creating any breast tenderness that I'm feeling at this point. I think that maybe instead of holding out hope for this cycle, I should just start focusing on my next cycle. That makes the pain of a disappointment somewhat bearable, though I'll admit, it's getting harder and harder to cope each month. Sometimes I feel like my heart is just going to stop beating from all the pain. TTC is hard. The first couple months were so full of excitement, but when you begin to worry that your body will never get pregnant, it just becomes a frightening obsession that may never get relief. My knees ache right now too--I get that each month before my period. I don't know what exactly causes the achy knees because no one else in the world seems to experience it, so I have no idea if it would also accompany a pregnancy for me or if it means that my period is arriving as scheduled.

I just want to say that you are all such a brave and courageous lot of women. Just been reading all the stories and how everyone is overcoming hardship and disappointments in their ttc journey. I know it can be sucky but hopefully it will make those BFPs and babies in arms all the more special when they do come.
Nowasakia, feeling for you. Thats so disappointing. Be kind to yourself and here's hoping for next month.
Casilayne, you are one brave cookie!! Well done on taking the shot.
Carla, welcome to the thread. I hope you get a happy surprise soon. Don't be despondent because of your age. It is only one factor. You may be pregnant sooner than you think.
Blueeyes, I can only somewhat relate but I can well imagine it is no picnic when your hubby is off his meds. I have a family member (not my hubby) who suffers from a mental illness and he is a very different person when he is not on the right meds.
Alzora, we are nearing that time. Do you get more nervous as the days get closer? My nerves are all over the place, and even though I am certain there is not much chance for this month, I am all of a sudden feeling hopeful. Lol go figureMumma of 3 Angel babies, Lani (my heavenly flower), Charlie (my free little one) and Brennan (my brave teardrop) xxx

@Frangipani, YES, I am a wreck as my period due date gets closer!! So good to hear that you are hopeful...optimism is always encouraging. I hope you find that your hunch is correct! Do you have any symptoms yet, or either PMS or pregnancy? Do you usually have PMS symptoms by this point? Which day is your period due?
I want to reiterate to all of you that if you would like to connect on Facebook, you can send me a private message and I will add you as a friend AND connect you to the 14 other Nameberries who have connected on there. We have formed a private Facebook group and are having a blast talking about all different kinds of things. It's not a TTC group, just a "we-met-on-Nameberry" group.

@alzora, you crack me up! Put your hands down, leave your boobs alone! Have faith that you will get pregnant, your body is amazing and has gone through so much, it will happen--- you really never know what's around the corner!! Gosh i am loving the catch phrases at the moment
As for my O day it is supposed to be this coming Tuesday so I may give the OPKs a whirl this weekend and just try after work next week as well :0
@carla, I'm just getting my head around OPKs but my understanding is they detect a surge in hormones prior to ovulatingTTC #1
