Sorry, just had to come out of lurkdom to say that. I'm SO happy for you
I really want everyone on this thread to graduate, but ESPECIALLY the ones who don't have any kids yet. Y'know? Plus, you give me hope for my sis--you have both been trying for #1 for so long!
I have so much hope for Tear, probably more than I ever had for myself, really. I know she's not far behind. I KNOW IT. much
to you for coming out of lurkdom for little ol' me.

ha, me too! my drive in labor was 15 min long, at 6ish am, and i was like AAAAAH! i don't know what i'll do next time around. the MWs that caught DD (at a hospital) used to run a freestanding BC, which would be my top choice, but it closed. we have no more FSBCs, and the ones affiliated with hospitals suck and are kinda far anyway. HB isn't covered by insurance, but i'm planning to talk to some MWs while TTC to see which of them can work with me on barters. i mean seriously, it is going to cost me at least $2,000 more to HB if not $3,000, and that's... um... a lot! especially when you are living on one not-stellar income in an expensive area! but i decided i definitely want to HB this time and i don't want the choice to be based on money.
DH has been absolutely crabby lately, so instead of being grumpy about it i am being uber sweet to him. we've planned a nice dinner "date" at home after M goes to bed. i almost had him pick up some wine but i am SO full of snot that it started to just sound really unappetizing. so yeah, we plan to just relax and enjoy each other's company. he's been very stressed and i totally keep taking it personally, so we've been snappy with each other. we apologized today and we are having quesadillas and chimichangas for dinner! this should be pretty good.
sorry DH has been a crabapple. but tis the season. lots of stress, and lots of apples. I am so glad that you two were going to have a nice din din together- how did it go? Wine probably would have been bad for a stuffy nose. but I will admit, I had about 3 glasses of red wine on TGiving (9DPO), and one on Friday, and one on Saturday (and even one on Sunday, after I found out to calm down a bit... breathing exercises werent working..
) my sister said it was good, and OK, so I did it. I'll blame her.
ETA: I do have the +HPTs in there, but I just dont have them showing in my homepage settings. i still have 8 pts. Like Mae said, I think it's all a crap shoot, depending on how many symptoms, real or phantom, you enter on the corresponding days to the FF charts in their database.

AFM- APPARENTLY I was allergic to the doxy they gave me prior to the HSG and after. I didn't realize it until I took the last dose last night. Excrutiating headaches all week that kept waking me up I thought they were from stress, along with the nausea, and severe stomach and back pain. Classic allergic reaction apparently. I've never been allergic to anything! I didn't even think to attribute it to the meds. Oh well. Now I know. Hope everyone has a great day
feel better! that's not good at all. I hope it's all out of your system by around CD18 or so!!! you usually O around CD 19-20 ish, right?
regarding the MW- I am too chicken to go HB for the first one, but once I sat with an OB, with all my questions, concerns for a natural birth, etc... i KNEW it was not the right thing for me. He looked at me like I had two heads when I asked if i could have intermittent monitoring instead of constant, and if i'd be able to walk around during labor... that made me scared
. I think what scares me the most is any practitioner that doesnt listen to our needs and desires for one of the most important life events. so, if you have an OB that you like, respects your wishes, and will do what's on YOUR plan, and not his/hers, then you're not a scaredy cat at all!!! it's whatever works best for each of us... one choice isnt better
than the other, and especially not more brave
. just different.

I'm so neurotic!
Going to try to do it at home again after work, tonight... and then I wait.
I don't have as much EWCM as usual... I hope O isn't late this month. That would be just my freaking luck.
I hope you get some more EW today...! but, even if it shows tomorrow, that will be good, to keep it alive longer
re the leaking out- (TMI warning
) right after the "insemination" I put a tissue under the opening- sort of balled up, while I am on my back with my hips raised. I have done it since the beginning. the feeling of it running down my uhh... crack makes me wanna hurl. so, the tissue keeps it all in the right area, and those that get out from leakage might find their way back in with the help of gravity, and a paper dam on the other side.
it really seems to help. If i were to use instead, after like 20-30 minutes, i might "scoop" up what I could from the outside, and then put it in... this TTC business is all so dainty and polite.AFM
, still hanging out... I want
to have faith in my body.. but.... well ya know. thank you all so much for letting me chill here till I'm comfortable to venture out into that other world that seemed like forbidden territory for so long....
