THE ONE THREAD - June 15-22 - Page 6

post #101 of 504
Grapes What beautiful photos...Your dress was gorgeous and you guys look so happy!!

Beating if you can't temp at the same time every day i have heard that it is ok if you can still see aclear pattern in the end. It might get a little difficult and your chart might look a little wierd but, I think it will be ok. Honestly, I don't think it looks all that bad right now. It's hard to tell...I would suggest using OPKs too just so you can get a real idea of when you might O, if you are concerned. Good luck!!

Hmmm...I was thinking temping at different times of the day does affect it, but I don't know that much about charting. Maybe you can trying temping the same time for the next few days and see if it evens out a bit. I've also read that your temps fluctuate a lot during AF, so maybe they will even out anyway now that AF is gone. I hope you get it worked out soon!

OPKs - I can't afford to get them. I can barely afford the preg tests I got a month ago, LOL

Testing at same time every day - I can't do that either. DD wakes up at different times every morning to switch boobs every ten minutes. I temp when I realize I'm awake, LOL. Otherwise I don't get a good block of sleep because she sometimes wakes at 5 30 am or 3 am or 730 am, and we get up at 9.

I guess if the times are different every day, you will just have to depend on your CM, CP etc. I would think you would still see a clear thermal shift though if your sleep is always interrupted. I have no kids yet so it hasn't been a problem for me but hopefully pretty soon I will have the same problem!

thanks! yes, it's sad that i can get this excited about it... but just knowing things are working is a good feeling...
post #113 of 504
and another question... how soon after O would one start natural progesterone cream? should I wait until I see the temp shift, and then start it?
is there one that anyone recommends or has experience with?
I was on a script for it with last pg, but I dont want to go that route just yet....

any suggestions?

I really miss DF

When he was here he'd claimed "thermometer duty" meaning when he realized both of us were awake he would grab my thermometer, turn it on, and hand it to me (afraid to put it in my mouth cuz he might hurt me)

Granted thermometer duty is why he's the reason we lost my old trusty thermometer.

I also miss getting to snuggle with him in the mornings and talk about how we can't wait to have a time when we can't snuggle in the mornings because baby's gonna be feeding...

this sucks so hardcore.

Not today, he wont be getting on for another hour and in half hour I'm taking the kids uptown to the first day of the carnival... I can't wait to get a funnel cake but that's a huge part of why I'm going through major DF withdrawls right now... he was here for the carnival last year and it was the BEST carnival I've ever been to... purely because he was here.

UGH. Bittersweet, then. I understand. I know it's not the same, but during our 3rd year together, I lived in CT, and my DH (bf at the time) lived in PA still... it was a whole year away from each other, and it sucked. but it helped us to really appreciate the time that we spend together now.

You and DF will have that time when he returns to you... and you'll never forget to cherish every minute you have together! It is so sucky now, but will make your relationship so much stronger in the long run... and then you can be together when that BFP comes!!!!!!

... i LOVE funnel cake though.... well, really any baked good. which explains a lot. have one for me.

Mae: What a super cute dress! I really do love it! And just from "knowing" aka internet talking with you for 2ish weeks I think it suits your personality way more than the first one I hope that your marriage is happy and blessed.

A picture of my wedding day is in my siggy under "Wife to"

Happi: :: I can't wait to see pictures of your BFP!!

Banana: I didn't get a bfp with dd until I was 21dpo. Well, I didn't test until 21 dpo either, but I can't say that won't happen again for me. And I have a friend who didn't get BFP's until AFTER her pregnancies were confirmed with U/S's. THAT is strange huh? Crossing my fingers for a BFP tomorrow! (thats for you too mae )

Lucy: I have the SAME thing about my pre AF symptoms. I swear. EVerymonth I think "I'll remember that this happened" and I NEVER do. Like right now I have diareah (TMI) but I always get diareah sometime around AF but I never record it! Now I"m thinking...when is AF supposed to come based on my diareah

Beating: I had the SAME issue with my dd waking at different times/nursing ALL night. do you temp vaginally? that seemed to help even out my temps a bit.

LZP: : for +OPK's!!!!!!!! : I'm so psyched for you! So yo should start imagining your ovary releasing an egg and conception happening YAY for ovulating!!

AFM: I'm 6dpo today. Is anyone else 6dpo too? I had a back ache 2 nights ago and thought that I O'd on the earlier date and AF was coming, but my cervix is still closed and I had diareah today what ever that means. But I do feel a tad crampy today. We shall see soon enough!!

Yesterday we met with our financial adviser and we are out of Credit card/student load debt and only have 2400 left on our car so that will be done by december!! AND in order to have 5000$ a month (in "tomorrow's" aka 30 years from nows dollars which will really be 11000$ a month) to live on we only have to save 510$ a month (that we get from our CC payments)!! That frees up 300 (that we'll get from the car payment) to start saving a month for a house : So in 7 years when we want to build our house we'll have 25000 if we don't put it in a roth, which we are so that will be more! : Can you tell I'm excited? We worked so hard and FINALLY paid off our debt and can start saving for our future! YAY YAY!!! :

But what is annoying is my student loan credit company that took over the loan keeps calling and saying I owe 23$ (but my student loan balance is 0) but they won't send a statement or send me an email statement. They jsut want me to fork over my credit card number to them. Like I'm going to do THAT. NO WAY.
