This cycle has been a weird one.
I tested positive on my OPK (I am very lucky, I have never had a problem with that) on cd15 (I all most always ovulate on day 15 or 16).
We BDed like crazy. For the last year we have tried the every other day thing, but then I decided to go back to the every day or twice a day routine.
My 2ww has followed my typical symptoms pretty closely. But the weird thing is that they are the same symptoms, just A LOT stronger. I have had cramping, TONS of gas (gross I know), super tired, and a really sore back.
I am not getting my hopes up (ok, I lied, I always get my hopes up), but it has been weird.
This cycle has so much more riding on it. It is Christmastime (I should know for sure on 12.20.10) and I will get to see my Mom at the end of the month. Wouldn't it be amazing to tell her in person?????
This will mark our second Christmas of trying for a baby. I know compared to some it is not very long at all. It's just that we don't have any answers . . . that and the fact that my DH hasn't bought into trying IUI, because technically there is nothing wrong (that we know of). And in some ways, I agree with him.
I guess I just feel like we are another year in, $3000 less in our savings, and truly no closer to baby.
So yes, I do have my hopes up and I feel pretty sure that we will have the same result.
I am going to test on Saturday 12dpo. I think it will be better to get my answer then. I know it is only two days later, but Monday is the same week as Christmas and I just don't want potential bad news that close to my favorite holiday.
I am hoping and praying that someone in IF land gets their Christmas miracle!
