* Bitter Sushi Ladies ~ December * - Page 3

post #41 of 624
thanks for the reassurance girls! I have been checking my cell phone every five seconds... slide up- let it light up- check "missed calls" (just in case it's not showing on the display) - close. sit 3 seconds. slide up. light up. ahahaha it's a viscious (sp) cycle.

YYYM- I totally think you should stop temping. maybe do what Lyndzies does, and try to temp for like 5 days before expected O, then if it's confirmed, or even close to confirmed, then stop temping- like 4 or 5 DPO. that's what I would do if i still wanted to temp. as it is,. i was sick of it. it was jsut one more thing over which I could allow myself to obsess. and it was useless.
I think with all your CM symptoms usually, you should be fine to just use the FAM method- ESPECIALLY given the erratic temping conditions! what with your "help" from DD, plus little, and interrupted sleep, etc.

of course, if you had asked me like 4 months ago, i would still think temping was the path to TTC sanity... clearly, it wasnt for me! so, take it all with a grain of salt. It seems from my perspective that you stress yourself out about the temps even though you know they're not that accurate. and I dont want you to be stressed.

Lyndzies- your timing is going to be good. and PM insems are good, IMO, because you'll get more lying down time shortly after, since it's close to bed time. maybe watch a movie in bed or something, if you have TV in your bedroom?

Nanette- i am with YYYM- this is going to be super fetile cycle for you.... get on it!

enigo- is DS being a little "nicer" to you today?! i sure hope so. you deserve a little break.

OK, off to the bathroom- dont worry, i'll bring my phone (and answer it) in the bathroom!!!

hope you're all having a good day. mine is draaaaaaaaging by.

yeah... i know you're right. but i keep thinking that once i have a couple good charts where my signs line up pretty well, i'll be able to feel more confident relying on CM & OPKs and stop temping. and i keep NOT having that! we might not have DTD on CD22 if i wasn't temping, because when i saw my temp hadn't gone up i worried that i might not have O'd yet.

i couldn't nap and make the dumb decision to test (wtf? dilute pee at possibly 8 dpo WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME), and got a BFN. and i'm spotting brown dots (just on TP when i wipe). my uterus feels cranky. i have gotten mid-LP brown dotty spotting during other soy cycles where i wasn't pregnant, so i feel blah about that.

WHATEVER. i need to learn to be more patient! sigh.

Thank you so much for the vote of confidence! Unfortunately I insem at his place, so I can't lay there for toooooo long, but I do use an Instead Cup after and use baby-making as an excuse to take it easy once I get home.

Lol. ME TOO! And that there are some resilient X-chromosomed swimmers in there, too, because I've still not been able to help along any fertile mucus (yet) today, even w/ all the green tea and grapefruit juice I've been drinking (and the mucinex I took earlier).

LZP - How can you STAND this wait!!!? I can't stand it, and it's not even my beta results I'm waiting for! Lol.

YYYM - I'm sorry about the BFN but (as you know) it's still early and not over till it's over. for you (and step away from the tests/thermometer, if you can)
post #44 of 624
HA! so, i just called. and of course, I said, "I dont want to be a pest, buuuuttt...." and asked them to be sure they call my cell phone, and not the house number, that's a big fear at this point. they call the house, and say, "please call us back, we have information" and then i dont get to find out until TOMORROW!! then maybe I'll go back again on what... Monday? I fdont think i could wait the whole weekend. I am still at this point trying to pretend that everything is the same as it was on Saturday. I didnt know anything was different. STILL only 14 DPO, and my LP is 16+ days ... so, i wont feel safe until like 20 DPO or something... and probably not after that either.
one hour at a time? YYYM, send some of that pukey feeling my way. PLEASE.

I'm having BFP daydreams here at my desk. You know the ones where you think: if I get a BFP this month, I'm going to... and then you imagine all the stuff you'd do to surprise DH/DP/DF with the results? I'm so ridiculous. But I guess with all this time I have on my hands, maybe I should use it to plan some outragous way of telling him and DS. Knowing me though, it'd be out of my mouth in T minus 5 seconds the instant I found out.
*SIGH*

Liz Hell and damnation (sorry I was reading a historical romance) what is taking so long?! I've been sitting here with MDC running on my 'puter alllll day waiting for info. I'm this impatient, I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel! Wishing you much nausea in the next few months

those daydreams are fun, and good for you I think... i never really let myself have them... you should totally come up with a good way to tell in 2-3 weeks. What CD are you again??
Oh, and I had what I thought was nausea a few minutes ago. turned out to be gas. I burped, and now i'm all better. darn.

You crack me up! It's still early yet!!

And I'm only CD 9. I've got a WAYYYYS to go!!
post #48 of 624
darn it all Nanette! why did I think your HSG was CD10?! maybe they only do it before CD10? maybe that was it.

is anyone else having a problem loggin on to FF? seems I have a renewed interest in stalking my own chart 35 times an hour, and now i can't get in.
post #49 of 624
Liz, I am lurking and waiting!! I am so happy I could squeeeeee! Heres to a 'Bitter Sushi' thread in 'I'm Pregnant' (btw, I knew you would conceive, haha!) I still wonder if I will end up in another DDC? I have mad fertile CM today (and the urge to BD tonight) I just can't stop that biological thing)

I don't mean to get your hopes all soaring, that's just how I am
post #50 of 624
Beloved, please follow that carnal instinct!!! we'd LOVE LOVE LOVE it if you could cross over. Just let your DH go with the flow. BC can't be all on you, so if he's game, then you can be too... that's my thought on the matter. I dont see you leaving MDC without a babe in arms. please dont.

you were right... for now. Not that I'm knocking your abilities... but until I make it at least past where i did last time, I am still trying to keep my feet on the ground here. I want to have some hope, but dont want to sail away.. the innocense and naivte is long gone.
post #51 of 624
Man I hate when the thread explodes!
No, I like it because there is something to read, but I always think I'll do personals...it's just too overwhelming.

DS has returned to his regular adorable/crazy self, although I took him to the park rather than the grocery store. That could have something to do with it.
Although someone yesterday evening was telling me that he behaves like that because he is an only child and that I should give him a sibling. Arrgggggggggggggh. I told her "NAhhh, He'd probably eat it."

I got up from the couch today and got dizzy. That hasn't happened since I was pregn....Gasp! It's way too soon to have any symptoms, but last time, my lack of symptoms were my symptoms. I simply felt like AF was coming any second.

My temps seem lower than my pregnant cycle though, don't know if that makes a difference. Maybe Mae knows. It was also summer then and now it's winter. I did an online psychic after the mc in Feb. It said I would be pregnant in Dec. At the time I was like...Are you kidding me? That's months away. Now I'll take it!

LZP, you must be climbing the walls. I know we all are!

Nanette, I knew for a couple days before I posted it on here last time (Well it was really light at 11dpo and I wasn't sure )and I think I still waited a couple days to tell DH. I swear I'm going to wait until I see a heartbeat next time before I even tell DH. Too bad I bloat like a tick the second the sperm hits the egg. It's tough to hide.

YYYM, DS usually is awesome for DH too, but when they get back from the store he has 5 new toys and a face and fistfull of candy. That's freakin' cheatin' yo.

Beloved, Come on!!! I know what a weird drive we have to be pregnant, huh? I guess it's important or the human race would die out. I have no reason to have another baby...I just waaaaaaaant to!


A friend wants me to go see Santa with her and her kids. There is SUCH a line. Is she kidding. My son waits for NO man!

"Sit in the stranger's lap so he will give you presents...what? I know I told you not to take candy and presents from strangers or sit on their laps, but Mommy wants a picture dammnit"
post #52 of 624

can I join?

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if I could join y'all. My husband and I have only "officially" been trying (charting, opks, etc) since July (my first round of Clomid after my 2nd anov cycle of the year). I have been off BCP for almost 2 years, been through 4 rounds of Clomid (2 O's but no conception, 1 anov, and 1 BFP after increased dose) and our very first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage starting this past Sunday (5 wks on the dot).

I am completely heartbroken. I was SO excited to be pregnant and am absolutely devastated for it to be over. I saw my doc today and he wants to increase my Clomid again in January, but I'm supposed to just wait this month out. He actually said he wanted me to wait til February, but I told him I couldn't wait that long. I don't know whether or not we should "try" this month (without the meds) just in case. My DH said he is ready now, and he's leaving it up to me. I have a few friends who got preg immediately following a mc, but I know I most likely wont O on my own. I am also scared if I DO actually O on my own, and get preg right away that my O wont be strong enough and this nightmare will happen again. I don't know what to do. I want to be pregnant again so badly.

Anyhow, can I please join the group? I am definitely feeling very raw and bitter.

any word? also, an idea, maybe you can see the RE thurs or fri for a beta? that way you'll get in, get results, and you can always compare them to today's to check for doubling without having to agonize over the weekend.

also, my pukey feeling went away, but i'm fairly sure i have a sinus infection. so, i'll keep what i've got over here and away from you, but if you want to send some of that being-pregnant-ness MY way, you're totally welcome!

i had very mild, on-and-off nausea at 6-8 dpo with DD (maybe it was a stomach bug, even! only time i've ever turned down chocolate in my life), but then it went away completely. my biggest symptom was this weird queasy feeling that was totally burp-related. my "real" nausea started at 6 weeks.

okay 1: i was reading a historical romance yesterday, and the guy kept saying "hell and blazes!" hell and damnation is more satisfying to say, for sure. 2: i have been having such BFP daydreams this week. i probably won't ever do any of my daydreams and will probably just tell him very matter-of-factly. what i ought to do when it happens is is wait until i'm actually late without a temp drop, and tell him that, and THEN test, rather than test early and try to find out before having any symptoms and then spring it on him. he did tell me that he would prefer to be able to guess at it before knowing for sure. so i figure if i can't kill my POAS addiction and get an early BFP, i'll just have to drop some major hints his way, but knowing me i'd probably just tell him and then tell him i tried to do it his way and was too impatient.

at your response, but what a butt-insky! my ILs are always telling us in their own way how glad they are that we're not having another baby yet and talking about child spacing and blah blah blah. twist the knife, won't you?

barefootgirl, i'm so sorry that you have to join us. i've seen you around during your TTC journey and was so sad to hear about your loss.

i hope you can find support and a safe space to vent here!
post #55 of 624
Thanks YYYM. It is hard to be SO close to the dream and have it snatched away. I know many here know how I feel.

Yes, I am so sorry for your loss
post #57 of 624
First and foremost, Barefoot Girl, I'm so sorry for your loss And, that you've reached this milestone as many of us have, and crossed over to the BSL thread. If you are going to be bitter and raw, though, this is the place to be!! seriously. you will not find a more supportive, caring, funny and genuinely interested group of ladies. I hope your stay here is short!



AFM, Ladies, I finally got the call. at 7:50 PM!!! WTF. I am not accustomed to this waiting, at least YYYM helped to brace me for a potential 48 hr wait!!!

as a comparison, In January, when i was pg, my 15dpo BW was not awesome, progesterone was 8.7 (super low), and hCG was 392 (pretty decent)

this time, my hCG at 13 DPO was 179, and progesterone is 38!! WOW. I didnt think I'd EVER hear a number over like 20.
I breathed a sigh of relief, followed by a few tears that the midwife graciously didn't laugh at.
I asked if I could come back in to see if it doubled, and she sweetly obliged, even though they "dont usually" do that. she even suggested that if we wanted, we could get a 7 wk U/S. I am in disbelief.

OK, I will spare you all the details for here on out, but you know I'm just not able to hold anything back!

I still can't bring myself to go to a DDC yet. well, maybe to just do a tentative intro... but I'll still of course, sub to the BSL thread in January, just to make sure those of you not out by the end of this month leave by then!!

Going to bask in the glow (of Christmas lights that my DH is testing right now...)

i'm so happy! those numbers sound AMAZING, and your MW group sounds great!!!!!! go sticky baby go!

good lord woman, i have been checking back ALL DAY. my thumb is getting numb from checking from my phone! right now i'm nursing DD to sleep and keeping her awake with the computer but i just felt a strong pull to come check, and YAY you updated!

okay so ladies, i am crying easily and then laughing HYSTERICALLY at the slightest amusing thing. like, i'm biting back guffaws at the fact that i just typed that because it's so funny to me that i can't stop laughing. but then other times i can't stop crying! i burst into tears when DH told me that his mom (who watched DD for a bit because i'm sick) was going to bathe her. THE BATHROOM IS A MESS! NO ONE CAN GO IN! WAAAH!!!!!!! 5 min later i was giggling. wtf? insanity from being sick? i'm not allowed to get my hopes up when my temps are ugly and my period isn't even late. jeez!
post #59 of 624
OMG OMG YYYM, please let this be a symptom. I will not get your hopes up. I just want to say that well... I am getting my hopes up.



and bring that crazy moodswing ladyenigo with you, too.

and perhaps well.... everyone.

OK not that tired, but trying to convince myself that i have lots of fatigue.

night night all.

and stop laughing, YYYM!

and Im jealous... I wish they would have done that for me with my son, I was so terrified of losing him too after having just had such a late miscarriage.
