Nursing Mamas TTC July ~ Roll Call Please Check In - Page 4

post #61 of 502
Where do you buy the cheap dollar store tests? Is the store actually called Dollar Store? Or another name? Since I ovulated for the first time (my youngest turns two today) last week, I'm going to be itching to test next week if my LP is long enough.

dollar tree is where i got mine, $1/stick. i blew through 10 sticks in 10 months (well, i think 9 mo because at least one was bad) even before my first PPAF 'cause you "never know" about catching that first egg. hehehe. ah, at least they were only a dollar

Totally Rollergirl!! I don't care what the line looks like as long as there is a line!!

I only have 12 more days to wait to test!

Hey girls! Do you mind if I join? I'm currently on CD3 after a surprise BFP followed by more BFPs followed by AF the next day. I'm nursing my just turned 1 year old and we are going to now TTC in a sort of blase manner for now. My LP has been 9 days which really sort of sucks, but since we weren't trying to get pregnant, I didn't mind.

I think I'm going to start taking my prenatals again - maybe the B vitamins in them will help lengthen my LP? Anyhoo - I'm in the waiting to O group right now :-)

Anjanette! Congrats!!! :

Welcome kalamos. Sorry for the AF.

Thanks for the hints on temping. I temp every now and then on and off to see where it is. I've been doing it long enough that I am pretty aware of what the temp should be for where I am in the cycle. That plus CM and it's usually apparent, but I like to KNOW, ya know?

my poor husband! This mornings test is just as light! I hope he lets us announce it at church tomorrow - they all know we are trying and are dying to know. I've already told a couple of people over the phone. Maybe he'll let me go buy a non-dollar tree test to verify. Are there some that do have "more dye" than others?

I'm sorry about af

I'm on cd3 with a 9 day lp too! I'm trying to lengthen it with extra b6 and b12 and starting fertilitea as soon as it arrives.

Welcome to our group!

Congrats RoP!!!

Also, after sitting for a while, my test from this morning is much darker and pinker. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone again and praying for blessings on all of your families. Hope you get little ones to love very very soon!!!

Congratulations RoP & anjanetteopal!:

On cheap tests - I just got 10 for $6, free shipping off Amazon, and they came in 3 days.

Well for me, further testing was +, but I started bleeding : Can I be moved to Waiting to O?

No plans yet for us. I keep forgetting it's supposed to be a holiday since it doesn't give me any extra days off this year.

We have not told anyone we're TTC. I would get all kinds of heck about being "so young to have so many kids" (2?), and plenty of comments about how ds is still a baby himself.

I'm not sure I'm going to make it to Friday to test.. I have absolutely no patience of self control


Hey our babies have the exact same birthday! I am TTC too and I don't think he is too young at all! It is perfect timing!

He is very AP in his approach (family bed, doesn't recommend it for babies under a year, gives all the power to the parents to decide when they and their child are ready, etc) and gives a step by step plan, which was great for my sleep deprived brain. He does the 7 hour time block without nursing, though we do not set a timer, we just go from bedtime until the sun comes up (ugh, at 4:30 am lately).

Night weaning has been a healthy step for my family, and that good REM sleep has also helped 'reset' some of my health issues (including my crazy cycles).

I used the Jay Gordon Method too! I loved it so much, it was still a rough week but I didn't feel guilty at all!

Yay for RoP and Anjanette!

XM, I'm sorry.

Anyone know anything about lunaception? I'm too lazy to look it up. The full moon is coming up Tues, and I will o a lot of times on the full if my body is ready. So we camped out last night, right under the moon. Does that mean it will help trigger my body, or prevent? I forget if you want things light or dark in relation to the full moon for lunaception.
post #79 of 502
yea right of passage!!!!!!

as for lunaception -- you want full dark up until when you want to O and then moonlight or another blue-based light and then dark again. that's how my friends' little girl was conceived

Congrats to RoP and Anjanette!
XM, I'm so sorry - I'm in the same boat this month.

I actually have a question about it actually - I usually get tender nips when I ovulate, and not during AF. I have the worst tender nips right now, and didn't know whether to chalk it up to the chemical pregnancy hormones being out of whack? Or what... I have had BFNs yesterday and today.
