** TTC 6+ Months ~ JUNE & JULY! ** - Page 5

post #81 of 355
Mae, I am SO stoked that you ovulated!!! How are you feeling about it? I read somewhere that you weren't sure you would want to be pregnant without him around.

Beloved, how is your vacation at the beach? It sounds marvelous! I've always wanted to go there. I hope you're letting all your wedding stress melt off of you in the sun.

jill and lisko, does it just show my inexperience that the mess monster horror stories sound cute? : I'm sure I would not be so adoring if I had to clean it up.

AFM, I'm really trying to head for the "don't think about it" road. I've temped for so many cycles now, with two pregnant charts in there to compare to, that I think I can tell from my chart by 10 or 11dpo if it's a likely month. You'd think I'd want to know that, but it just started to feeling like testing early and getting a BFN, because there is always a slim ray of hope of implanting on 12dpo. I'd rather be blissfully hopeful for a few more days before I have to pick my hopes up off the ground in little pieces yet again. Plus, like Beloved said, I think it just causes me more stress than it's worth. There are so many days that I agonize over the meaning of a single temperature just to see it was a fluke the next day. meh...I'd rather focus on getting my weight back to happyland; remembering what it feels like to have my body be something sexy, not just a babymaking vehicle. I'm back down to about the weight I was after my CP and before the pregnancy. Now to reverse the effects of that one, too, and I might start to feel good here.

I miss Lauren. I'm so happy for Lauren, too! But I miss Lauren. Anybody else stalking the no-stress preggo thread now, too? We have to head over there, m'kay? Let's just stop procrastinating and do this! hehe.

It's a full moon today. Isn't it supposed to be good to ovulate around the full moon? I should ovulate tomorrow Tuesday. Is that close enough?

I DON'T want to be pregnant without him... but I also don't want to be without him... and I want to be pregnant.

It's very hard ya know? I know he'll be supportive from halfway around the world and (oh shoot I forgot to get it anyway) they have this thing where you can record in-womb sounds and put them on your computer to share... we were gonna get one anyway to record our heartbeats for each other to put on our ipods on repeat so we can sleep more comfortably.

ps - how am I doing? I've been working on report cards for the past two weekends and I haven't whined ONCE! I'm not done yet. I probably need to spend another Saturday on them. whine. ok...I deserve ONE whine. And maybe lots of wine.

I miss Lauren too. I'm so happy for her though yes, we all really need to meet over in the 'I'm Pregnant ' forum . I was on that ' no stress' thread for a while and hope to be there again. The moon was beautiful last night, no? It was so bright here it shone through the intermittant clouds. I am having such fun, just had sandwiches after a morning at the beach!!

post #88 of 355
Lauren, we're going to Germany to visit DH's family in early July. What part of Germany are you moving to again? I'm glad you had an awesome weekend!
post #89 of 355
Well... I just told DF that we still have a chance.

[5:44:56 PM] Mae: which i'm still freaked out about ovulating 9 days past my last period when its usually like 15 days
[5:45:20 PM] Mae: anyway
[5:45:26 PM] Mae: you can figure out what i'm saying right?
[5:45:46 PM] DF: we were lucky?
[5:46:02 PM] Mae: if you want a baby, yes. it's an absolute miracle.
[5:46:37 PM] Mae: if you wanted to be here for the pregnancy... we weren't so lucky

MAE, it honestly sounds like divine intervention I can't wait to see what happens!!!

Lauren, I'm glad you had a good time, have you told any friends yet? Or only family?

Afm, I'm waiting for DF to cook burgers on the grill there was a bit of tension when I tried to take DS to a skatepark where he had to have all of the gear a d we had to rent equipMent, after drivi g back a d forth for miles, he calls me and tells me that he doesn't want to be there, the pads were too uncomfortable : he had to tough it out

I am enjoying a nice cold beer because I am not pregnant

oooh enjoy that beer for me

I told my family and I am telling friends if the need strikes up. This past weekend I stayed at a sorority sister's house in St. Louis and I had to explain why I was not drinking wine and/or tired at 11pm and did not want to go to a smokey bar. She was SHOCKED. She just got married and I am the first in this group of friends to admit to DTD with baby in mind. In my army circle I am the old lady with no kids, (YET!!!). I am so hoping this is a healthy baby and I am just sorta acting as if it is. There is no point in thinking otherwise at this point, right? Positive vibes :
post #92 of 355
Yes Lauren, think positive thoughts your baby will be sticky and healthy!

I am being driven nuts, DF's DD will not put the grandaughter (4) to bed : she was begging to be put to bed over an hour ago, but her mom was reading. Now she is overtired and refusing to go to bed and it is past my DD's bedtime : I need to stay faaar away from this and I can't say anything to anyone. I am relaxing, but wish I could put my DD to bed

Tear78 - Yeah for no temping anymore! I think it will really help you to chill out. As for your chart on FF, you can force an O date on it, so at least you can keep track of how many dpo you are. It helps me (I put my O date the farthest out I think it could have been). That way I'll be less tempted to test. Actually, I am NOT going to test this cycle unless AF still hasn't arrived by like June 20th. (I don't think I can make it that far, really, but its a nice goal.)

Anyway, when I finally did conceive DD, I wasn't temping. I do find it very interesting, but stressful at the same time. Especially those temps in the TWW.... no fun at all.

: Yippee for you! I wish I could say the same. I haven't been doing very good about my eating or exercise. I just can't seem to stick to it.

Anyway, Tear, I hope that your relaxing summer vacation helps make a nice happy sticky bean. Will you be fertile on your trip to Germany????

MaerynPearl - Well, if you happen to be PG without DF here... it will definitely give you a bit of a distraction. I hope it goes whichever way you'd feel most comfortable with!

Lauren31 - Definitely think its a healthy baby... thinking otherwise is just going to make you worried and stressed. Odds are it is. Besides, you want to enjoy each moment of the pgcy anyway... its so fun in the beginning - like a little secret between you and the baby (before you start showing, that is).

Beloved - Sorry its been a bit stressful away on vacation. Sometimes they are just like that with lots of kids and family around. I hope you get to de-stress today on the beach!

AFM - I'm at least 8 dpo. Nothing to report. I had some twingey and dull cramps yesterday. Seems like if anything, that's been normal each cycle. So I'm not going to get too hopeful.

I'll be watching stepDS on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until July when his summer camp starts (his private school ends very early). That will really cramp my posting time unless he's busy. Don't need him reading my posts...

Sooo... I'll be back on Thursday most likely!

Either way I'll be happy. I'll just let fate decide for me.

Lisko, we're cycle buddies again! I'm about 8 dpo, too. I can feel myself start to drift into crazy mode sometimes, but I'm trying to stay positive and carefree. I'm hoping to make it to Sunday without testing (AF should arrive Fri or Sat). Of course, I've already thought ahead to, if it's positive could I keep it a secret from DH for a week until Father's Day?

I felt kind of crampy today, too, which I don't think usually happens, but it possibly does and I'm just obsessing. Maybe, possibly . Isn't there a thread for that?

Hello Everyone - I'm still pretty new here and haven't gotten in the habit of posting everyday.
Last week I got af and was super bummed about it. I was fine after a hug from my hubby, some chocolate and a malibu & oj
My motto has been 'everything happens for a reason', so I know I'll get pregnant when it's the right time, but it's hard to accept that sometimes.

I just found out that DH is gonna be out of town next Monday, which is right around when I'm supposed to O. We'll have to make sure we do our thing this weekend, before he leaves Luckily he's just gone for one day - he'll be back on Tuesday. He's out of town right now, actually. He left yesterday afternoon. He'll be back tomorrow. It's just me and my 2 doggies.

I go in for my annual exam on Friday. I'm hoping that everything checks out. I've been spotting every cycle, for about 2 days before AF arrives, so I'm gonna ask the OB if that's something to be concerned about. I've heard that low progesterone can be a factor.... so we'll see. I just want to make sure everything's working properly down there, so I can finally get my BFP!

Well, ladies, thanks for listening. Have a good night!
Becky :-)

hello

I'm still trying to think of my blurb to put by my name! I really really hope/feel like this is my month! COME ON BABY! It's month eight of trying, 9 months seems like soooo much longer than eight. So I am really praying this is it! I got a ++ opk today and hopefully will O tomorrow! YAY!
