Congrats LitMomma! That is awesome news!
post #762 of 824
Happy New Year all you dear women!

Congratulations LitMama! What a great way to start out the year!!! Happy telling of your DD tomorrow and very good wishes and a wonderful engagement and marriage!

Stealthee, 35 weeks, WOW!!! It sure goes fast when it's someone else's belly growing. Sending good wishes for the birth experience you want and a wonderful meeting of your new little one. Happy prepping for all that!

MsGB, still thinking of you and sending good wishes.

Hi hsmamato2! I'm 42, too. Come on back anytime. I hope you find the places that are best for your mental health--and spirit health, too.

As for my 42 year old self...as you may remember I had thought my temp shifted at CD14 and was extremely frustrated because I thought we missed our window. Then I got very confused because my temps were medium low, but my cf wasn't fertile (more like post-ovulation cm). We tried anyway just in case (and cause why not ). Well, yesterday, on CD19 I had a much more significant temp shift, which maintained today. I'm convinced that was my real temp shift. I'm relieved about the temps, but am worried about what happened to my cf. Hopefully it is not a trend. We got a couple tries in there--unfortunately not the 2 nights before, but hopefully some sturdy swimmers made it so I am officially 2WW

Congratulations, LitMama! So cool!
post #764 of 824
Oh Congratulations LitMama how exciting. I hope your dd is very excited. Have fun planning...

AFM I'm on CD 10 I guess. I had so much spotting pre AF from 11 DPO on and then that positive test and then AF for sure on Christmas Day, I'm a little uncertain what day was really day 1.

I started using my OPKS on Friday, so far both totally negative, but started our BD athon...lol. Hoping for at least every other day until that +++OPK. Last month I ovulated on CD 15 or 16, but the month before that it was CD 20 or 21. I'm continuing to take the Bcomplex 50x2 so we'll see if that was indeed responsible for moving ovulation day forward last month or if it was just a fluke.

I really hope no matter what happens this month that I don't start all the spotting again. It's just so so stressful, and between it and my very long heavy AF I was bleeding at least a little each day for almost 2 weeks. YUCK!!

My little guy has been nursing less and less, basically only at night once or twice as he's just too busy during the day it seems to want to bother...lol.

So here's hoping for all of us. Fingers and toes crossed, prayers said, that this is the month.

OK - I am at Target yesterday to get some stuff and since AF is nowhere in sight I decide to get some FRER. My son is quite the reader so I have to get it quickly and stash it under some stuff. Can I have a little dignity?? Anyway, I get home and take it out. I bought a FRER FERTILITY test. Ughhhhh! So, since I bought and there is no way in h*** I am going to get on the return line with that - I had to use it. I am thinking to myself - "why am I doing this???" - anyway - don't know an awful lot about those tests but it came up that I am fertile. I realize you are supposed to take it on day 3 for an accurate result. Anyway, so I ran out later and got a FRER. BFN. Oh well. Time will tell what is going on.

Hope you all are having a great new year so far!

Helo, all. Just poking my head in after being on vacation for the past week or more. We went to CA to see my family, and while it was a nice visit, the timing was awful for TTC. DS slept in our bed, no chance for BD, and although we did the night after we got home, I'm afraid we may have missed our window.

HOWEVER, I am not charting (too stressful), just going by cycle history and CM. Our 2010 resolution was to BD more often (TTC or not), so I'm hoping 3xweek will help us catch an egg soon.

to MsGB. I'm so sorry your ED didn't take. I'll : that 2010 is your year. OUR year, for all of us!! :

Thanks for all the well wishes regarding my pregnancy. I'm 37 weeks today and considered full term. I'm sort of hoping that this little guy comes a little earlier than his due date. I can hardly wait to meet him!

Litmama: Congratulations on your engagement!!! What a wonderful way to start the decade.

Karen1968: Have fun with your new year's resolution! Hope your timing was good this month.

NYMomma: I miss Target. They don't have them where I live. Sorry about the BFN. I hope that FRER fertility test was accurate. Does it measure FSH?

Simplymama: Good luck catching the golden egg this month!

Waturmama: Welcome to the 2ww and !

Ms. GB: Your presence will be missed here while you take a break from TTC. Best of luck with your other endeavors and hope to "see" you soon.

to Pookie, BuzzerBeater, HSmamato2, Shy, Bhappy and anyone I missed!

Please change my age to 44

Gone 10 days and look what happens. Hi everyone, I am back from my trip and I am trying to catch up on reading. Apparently, I missed a bunch before I left even as I had to go back a week or two before that to pick up where I left off. Hello to all the new ladies. Congratulations Pitchfork. I have just skimmed many of the posts as I was trying to read as much as possible I'll go back and read in depth later. I was totally captivated MSGB's with your posts and I was so hoping for the positive outcome you wanted. I am so sorry to hear the IVF did not work this time. I hope you are able to find everything you are looking for this year. My thoughts are with you. It just totally sucks it didn't work out.

AFM, I think I may actually be having my first normal cycle since my M/C in May. Wohooo, I think I ovulated on CD13 had good cervical position and CM, good temp. shift, and best of all no spotting after ovulation. I think we missed bd on o day, well we tried but were interrupted before conclusion that am. The difficulty of having a 4 year old in the house. But at least it looks like a nice normal cycle and maybe there is a chance from the bd the days before o. Today is my 44th birthday. Yikes. Surprisingly I am not as bummed about that as I thought I would be. Of course I'd like to be pregnant today but I am still hopeful, I'll get there this year. I am feeling a little beat up today I was skiing for 9 days and my legs are really indicating how badly out of shape I have become since the m/c and that I sooooo need to work out more. I'm bummed not to be skiing anymore but I think my knees are thankful for the rest. DD woke up this am with a tummy ache and promtly threw up all over my bed. She didn't miss a blanket or stuffed animal, she got them all. I put her to bed in her bed which she has never used while I cleaned up. She threw up again an hour later. This child has probably only thrown up 3 other times in her life 2 times were motion sickness related so I am guessing she is actually sick. I can't find her thermometer so I don't know if she has a fever. She says she feels really sick. Any suggestions for tummy upset are welcome. I gave her ginger right before she threw up the first time and peppermint tea after the second. Oh and while I was dragging all the blankets etc... down the stairs to wash them our 16 year old dog got caught in a rose bush and I had to cut her free. Fun stuff! Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday Kristin!!!

Sorry you had to do vomit laundry on your b-day. I hope your DD is feeling better soon.
post #770 of 824
Wow Kristin!
Happy Birthday .... hope your dd feels better soon! And let the year ahead get better soon too. Congratulations on the normal cycle ... methinks this is a sign for a new beginning

Checking in

The holidays were busy, and I took a break from posting much.

I'm so sorry MsGB. I hope 2010 is a wonderful year for you.

AFM, after a really faint +++ last cycle with more spotting during my LP, AF showed so here I am on CD 13, OPKS just starting to show a bit of color in the second line. Hoping I'll ovulate by CD 16, but sometimes I have late ovulation. We also have a horrible bronchitis type cold in the house that I seem to just be starting with, so I don't know if that could end up delaying ovulation. I hope not, because we've BD a lot the last few days, and if I'm getting as sick as my kids have been, there won't be much more of that...lol

Our dream is to have a baby that can be born in 2010. If we don't conceive in the next few months, we will have to reevaluate what we want. Our youngest would be 2.5 by that point and our age will just be that much older so I really think we are into the last 3 or 4 cycles of actively trying.

Good Luck to all. May 2010 be a blessed year for everyone

Happy belated birthday Kristin. I hope your daughter is feeling better.

AFM, AF is here today. Yeah! At least I know where I am at. I am considering starting to really chart. I bought the bbt and it is sitting next to my bed. DH is afraid I will start to obsess over every rise and fall in temp - but is willing to remind me to do in the am.

Yesterday, I babysat an 8 month old all day. I forgot how much work it is even though she was a happy little one. My 3 yo is so independent now. Made me stop and think - do I really want to be doing this again? I now actually get to sleep through the night and have a few minutes of peace when I need it.

Well - got to go and battle this cold weather.
post #774 of 824
Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone. Fortunately, true to form dd is back to her normal self today and you would never know she had been sick yesterday. I kept her home today but tomorrow I swear I am getting myself to the gym. I so need to get myself together, lose some weight and get more active. I really slacked off since the m/c and it shows and I can feel it! I hope everyone is doing well today.
post #775 of 824
Okay, so someone talk me in off the ledge. Please! I am starting to manufacture symptoms. Yesterday, it was uterine twinges, stretches when I moved at 10DPO so I don't think so. Today I am feeling icky kind of nauseous, so once I realized that I really started feeling very nauseous. It is so obviously manufactured it's not funny. I just want to get through the next two days quickly and without psyching myself up only to be disappointed in a few days. I also wish I could go back to where I was when I was pregnant with my dd. I didn't even realize I was pregnant until my period was 10 days late. Totally clueless about where I was in my cycle and happy as a clam. Off to distract myself and make some graham crackers with dd.

i hear ya, and i'm right there with ya girl. every month is the same. i don't know how to stop myself, so i'm just trying to accept and tolerate whatever feelings i may have. ya know, it could be... and it could be something else. whatever it is, it already is.

what symptoms are you having other than the nausea ? i started feeling a bit of queasiness, too, this morning, and maybe even a smidge yesterday morning. also, my breasts are more sore than they usually are. i think i'm 11dpo, but i was not temping, just charting ewcm and ovulation pains. so i could be off by a day or two either direction.

love yourself. that's all we can do. and the child will come when the child comes.

hugs,
oxx

eta: oh, i forgot to mention i just started burping (from queasiness, i think). and for the last several days have been teary.

I'm normally not like this every month I ams ure I am not pregnant and just wait for AF but this month I hate to say this outloud but I think I have convinced myself I am may be pregnant the only signs if you want to call them that were the twinges on and off, the slight nausea, and my nipples are really sore when dd nurses. However, I am using progesterone cream this month so that explains the nausea and the nipple pain. And if I really think it through I am certain I am not pregnant but then I catch myself thinking that I am. It's crazy, makes no sense, and apparently something I need to just work with until AF arrives in 2 or 3 days.

No teariness here that's actually normal for me durign part of my cycle for me it's over exhuberance and just stupid happy for no apparent reason. Our upstairs heat pump died yesterday and I laughed. I have no way to xover a major repair but it seemed funny we actually have some cold weather nothing major compared to some of you folks but cold and I laughed just snuggled up with my sweety and added another blanket to the bed.

Hope you are well Karen and it's good to know I am not alone in this crazy boat.

Hello All!

Thank you all so much for the congrats on my engagement! I was really touched. I've been in a whirlwind of happily distracted wedding/life planning ever since and most days count myself lucky just to make it to work with a shirt on my back the right side out.

We've decided to have a quickie city hall wedding sometime in the next few weeks, so we can start TTC right away. February could be my month! Then we'll have a more public ceremony and reception for friends and family in the spring (and I hope by that time I'll be wearing an empire-waist wedding gown and avoiding the champagne!).

Kristin0105, Happy Birthday to you! It sounds like you have a lot going on right now. Your tale of the heat pump made *me* laugh, too! Maybe you *are* pg. I always feel that way when I am... optimistic and easygoing. Being engaged is having the same effect on me... the other day I lost an expensive cellphone that had been a gift, drove over a nail and destroyed my tire, and got two parking tickets. Yet I was still smiling. Weird.

Stealthee, are you still hanging in there? Wishing you a restful last week and a joyful birth.

WaturMama, good luck in your 2WW! Fingers crossed!!

SimplyMama, I hope that pesky spotting goes away! It sounds like something you just don't need right now.

Karen1968, I like your NY resolution (I might adopt it myself) and hope you catch your eggie soon!

NYMomma, that is a very interesting experience you had babysitting the 8mo! I sometimes find myself avoiding babysitting for that very reason... I might remember what it's really like. I understand the seduction of sleep, as it was 5 years before my dd slept well. I'm probably only willing to do this again because she's 9 now and all the hard stuff is a distant blur.

AFM, I'm CD8 and doing a very bad job of charting this month due to my distracted state. I really need to learn how to check my cervix soon. Can anyone recommend any resources or tutorials on that?

Happy Friday, everyone!

Happy cold chilly saturday everyone. Probably 13DPO today and still have painful nipples, but started feeling grouchy today so I think AF may be on the way. Or maybe it's because we got a $400+ electric bill yesterday because the downstairs heat pump is apparently not working right either. Wouldn't mind but I think I have mentioned this fact to DH oh I don't know about 1000 times and he kept telling me not to worry about it, not to call anyone, etc... just don't turn it on high. Easy for him to say he's not here all day. So now we have a killer electric bill and apparently two heat pumps in need of repair and no one available to look at them until Monday. I need to find something cool to sell on ebay that will net me a crazy price like you see on the news. Grilled cheese that looks like Elvis anyone?

Now I'm feeling cranky, restless, bloated and can't seem to find anything to hold my attention. Hmmm can you say obsessive symptom monitoring. Off to try to focus on a sewing progect I started in August.
