Long Term TTC Thread [Supporting Each other]
Thought it would be pretty cool to have a thread for us LTTTC'ers.
I'll introduce myself and maybe we can support each other through this journey. I've been TTC for over 2 years now and I am suffering secondary infertility. I am 35 years old. My partner is younger than me.

pcoswarrior - it may be so that you didn't ovulate. But it could also be that you had such a short surge that you missed it. Once I actually had to take an opk in the middle of the night to be able to catch my peak, it was that short. The next day it was much lighter. Did you only use strips today or digital too? Finger crossed you had a short surge and just missed it.
MissPug - Yeah, I can see that we're almost cycle buddies! How exciting with your weddins plans! My husband and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary 10 days ago. We started trying in january 2017 when I got my IUD removed. In september 2018 I got accepted to university and started studying. We decided to take a break in september 2019 since I only had two semesters left until I graduated and we thought it was best if I had some time to work too before getting pregnant. I got a job even before I graduated and have been working full time since june, so I took my last birth control in the middle of august. So since I stopped BC we've only been trying for 2 months, but not counting our break we've been trying for over 2½ years. And oh, when it comes to testing this cycle - I already caved. Nothing but a squinter, but I don't trust those.. I've had too many chemicals.
Näsake - good for you that your period arrived on time so that you can have the checks that you need. Fingers crossed all is well.

MissPug - I so remember that feeling of wanting to get married. When my husband proposed we were married like 4 months later. We got married at the city council with only our closest family. I'll share my squinter in a few hours when I'm alone. My husband doesn't know I'm testing already and I don't plan to share a squinter with him. He'll just think I'm crazy.

I definitely see what you're seeing but you're definitely right - you can't trust these tests. But I really really really hope this is real for you. Fingers crossed it's much darker tomorrow for you and shows signs of progression. We got engaged at the end of May 2020, so we've been engaged nearly 5 months. Hope to be married by Christmas! So darn excited. Can't wait to be Mrs Adie! :)

Pandorica, I think my body keeps gearing up to ovulate. Maybe? I didn't temp this time, but I've been checking my CM. And I had EWCM, and now it's completely gone. I did get a Blinky smile on digital, but way too early to trust, and it's been blinky ever since. I'm not sure I trust it. But the strips never went near positive. I normally get a positive in the evening, and then see it fade away the next day. But I've never had nothing before. I'm on CD 18, so I know I might still ovulate as my cycles tend to run between 27 and 34 days, with the occasional 36 to 38 thrown in there. But it's getting on the long side.
Miss Pug, congrats on your engagement! I've been married 9 years now. :) I hope you're able to get married by December. And Pandorica, I hope your squinter turns into a
