It's our first month TTC and AF came... I am wondering if I should stop taking them during my period and then start them up again in a week or so. What do you guys do? Is there any benefit to continue taking them everyday? I also take B-6 and B-complex.
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
Creepy. Take any old local legend of a haunted house still occupied by two ghostly women and make it true. The two occupants of the house happily tidy up the rooms, preserve jams, bake, and make clothes out of odd materials all while the local townspeople wonder whether or not people really do live in that house.
The Honey Thief by Elizabeth Graver
Slow going at first but it finally picks up towards the middle. About a girl who befriends a beekeeper and he takes her on as his apprentice. A lot about how her dad died and how her mom worries about her.
Well, my kitchen is red but it is decorated in strawberries so that doesn't help! What about red and black checkered towels? I've seen coca-cola kitchen themes if he likes that and it would go with the red. Maybe something Tuscany? Roosters? Americana?

You can try reading to them during mealtimes. They would be sitting still for the most part and you would have their attention while they are eating. Also, during bathtime (although they would be playing and splashing around, but it's worth a try). I second the Jim Trelease book. Also, Mem Fox has a good book about reading. Have you been reading to them since they were infants?
I swear I have read somewhere that it takes the sperm 10 hours before they are even ready to start burrowing into the egg. First, they feed off the cervical fluids for a long time or something. And so if you BD after O and the egg is shed after less than 10 hours, then it would be too late. But you still have a chance, depending on how long your egg sticks around.
