Nursing Mamas TTC January- Roll Call Please Check In - Page 18

post #341 of 393
Wow, what a BFPtastic day! Congrats ladies!:::

CrunchyMama - sorry about AF But yay for a decent LP!

ivymae - I think I will order some prog cream if there is no improvement this month - you'll have to KUP on how it works for you

jillybeans - this is my 3rd cycle. I had a 9 day LP with the first one, so I don't know what happened :

SoCali - yep, definitely a 5 day LP. Boo on that LOL

Grahnola Mum - I am scared that vitex might mess me up even worse, I might resort to it soon though! I am already taking B6, and this month I am going to try soy in the hopes of O'ing a bit earlier, so I guess I will try one thing at a time

Grahnola Mum - Have you told DH yet? My consolation story: Even though we had agreed not to prevent with #2, when I took the test and showed it to him, he was sweeping the back deck, and just said "Huh" and didn't talk about it for days. I was crushed, because it was so unlike him to pull away like that, but he just needed his own time to redraw up his plans I guess. This time, with someday#3, he is the one who wanted to start TTC right away, but I still imagine that when I tell him he will need a while to get excited. I hope it goes well, and even if it is less than perfect, we are excited for you over here!

Hi ladies! I'm a nuring mama to a nearly 4 year old and have been officially trying for another baby since September and unofficially since last January. I did get my period this month (but it was only 4 days) and I'm having some weird stuff going on since period ended (very very sensitive nipples, cramping on and off in uterus, tiredness and some back pain and I am crying over silly things). I took a pregnancy test and it came up negative, I'm starting to worry that I want to be pregnant so badly that I'm creating pregnancy symptoms. Even a mom I know asked if I was pregnant the other day (she said I had 'a glow' and my belly is a bit rounded).

Well. I might not TTC for a while.

My grandmother had a stroke before xmas, and while she is mostly OK she needs 24 hr skilled assistance. This has pretty much ruined them financially.
I just found out today that my parents are nearly bankrupt, and are currently trying to prevent that. That was totally out of the blue. They were OK, but my granparents and issues with my brother finished them up.

DH and I are doing great, but both our jobs are less than secure.

So. While I truly want another baby - I am a bit terrified right now. Until I know I won't be supporting 4 generations..... condoms.

Welcome PrincessDoll

Lit Chick ~ : hug Sorry things are rough for your family

post #351 of 393
Thanks.
Ugh. I am so torn. The financial stuff is so unexpected - it's scary how fast things can start to go downhill. And our jobs... again. so far, so good. But it's so shaky. Both of our companies are laying off all the time, and who knows if we'll survive the next cut. The safety net of my family went *poof* - we are their net now.

At the same time, I'm not getting any younger, and we really do want a second child... and things can change for the better too, not just for the worse.
Ugh. But the first 6 months of a baby are the hardest, working wise... and things become even more logistically difficult with more people.

OK. So - I'll lurk in the thread and hope you all are successful, but I am officially not TTC. Until things seem a little less chaotic, we'll just hold steady.

ETA - and of course, just now I have EWCM, and that good ol peak day feeling. Sigh. Shocking how my head very much says "wait until April" but my body says "oh, go for it!!!" Bah, hormones!

I see that I'm on the 2WW list- I think that is leftover from last month, but I really do think I should be on it!

Feeling Ovulation pains all weekend- and due to the busy-ness of our lives, I figured we missed the window (there was fertile mucous on Sunday.) We made up for our non-amorous weekend last night. Then today, I've noticed some more fertile egg-whitey mucous. Maybe we didn't miss it after all!

Here's hoping!:

Wow! There are a lot of bfps! Congrats!

I'm still waiting to O. And I think I'm at cd 32 (not looking a the calendar today) *sigh* I think DD nursing for teething comfort is throwing things off. I thought for sure I was going O earlier in the week... CM was looking right and I my breasts got tender and tingly, which was weird... but my cervix stayed the same. Oh well... maybe some of this baby dust going around will rub off on us!

Thanks for sharing that with me mama - it realy helps. I did finally tell him. His exact words were " I knew you were, oh well, guess that's the way it is then.". I'd love for hijm to be super excited like I am, but I think he will come around eventually. He was stressed out when I got pg with DD too at first and then he got excited. He worries about finances with just him working so I see he just needs a bit of time.

I am so glad I have this forum to come to for support - thank you everyone .

I went to the drs. today and got it confirmed. I am in my 5th week now.

I'm still charting too as I think it will be interesting to see it all.

Hope the good news keeps on rolling in for all us TTC's!
