I know, it’s really, really tough to see those negative results month after month. It would get to the strongest of us. I’ve not used a fertility monitor myself and have resisted using OPKs so far. I’ve one child, conceived on cycle 1 so this ‘trying’ lark is fairly new to me. I’m now TTC #2 and in cycle 4. I’m trying (and failing) to not put myself under too much pressure so have resisted the fertility tools and gadgets so far, I’m thinking that if this month doesn’t work I may review that though. I have been doing a lot of online reading and had to admit that we may not be BD’ing as much as we need to be. On our first, we had more time and more opportunities to make sure we were giving it our best effort, so to speak, where this time round, we’re really having to nearly schedule in BD appointments, which, as you would imagine, sort of takes the romance out of it!
Anyway, I suppose what I’m trying to say is, do you feel that you need the help of a monitor, just yet, or could you be more attentive to your body, your fertile window and making sure you’re getting lots of BD in? I’m sure you have been, but just wanted to mention it as on review of my own situation, that’s where I think I’ve been falling down. I’m doing my best this month to make it a priority and hoping for a BFP at the end of the month.
Babydust and big hugs to you, It’s a journey!
