Am I a pessimist?

I'm just not feeling it. I felt like we had so many good cycles month after month when we weren't trying. Now, that we went through and did the injectibles, things feel all messed up again. Here's the evidence:
  • My temp has yet to really spike. It inched upward a tiny bit, but it did so the morning we did our first insem... was the Friday one even worth doing? Not only that, but in prior months, I spiked right away and big.
  • No other telltale pg signs until today, and only mildly so (soreness to be exact.) Erin believes that I usually feel it about 4dpo.. today is 5dpo

Why do the months we try seem to go haywire? I'm still crossing my fingers for a miracle, but if this time doesn't work, I want a 100% natural try next time around.

I'm sorry Sara. But you know, we hear all the time that the months that feel like nothing end up being the ones that count!

It's early. & I'm still hoping!

I never thought I would see the day that you questioned your pessimism! Of course you are a pessimist...but it's up to all of us that love you to be optimists for you :) Cheryl and I are sending good baby juju your way.

I know how you feel, and it's a sucky feeling. I stopped temping a couple cycles ago because it drives me nuts, and I'm not sure it's good for much of anything except retrospectively. You never know what will happen and there's still a great chance for you that it worked this month. But I am sorry you're feeling pessimistic. We've got our fingers crossed for you here!!

Tick tock, tick tock. It can be excrutiating at times, right? I know the feeling. I am going to start on injectibles this weekend and I am not looking forward to it.

Okay, you don't know me and have probably never visited my blog before but I am taking a leap of faith. I have just tagged you.

Please visit my site and keep the game going.

I have never been to able to figure out how to read the signs. There were months when I was sure we had done it, and it was a bust. Then I gave up hope, asked family for money to pay for more expensive meds, and then I got this crazy surprise BFP. I wish I knew how I did it.

Fingers crossed for you!
