finnegansmom- I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Wishing peace and blessings for you and yours.
SoCaliMommy- sorry to hear of AF finding you (not sure I told you already). I really enjoy your positive outlook.
rcr- fx that your O will wait until this weekend!
lifeguard- I was frustrated just to read what happened with your refer! Hopefully that can get fast tracked this time for you.
Luck to those who will be testing soon!
I've really enjoyed the insights from the discuss of tandem nursing- something I'm totally excited to try (fx). I love the thoughts about no sibling rivalry.
AFM, I'm thinking AF may be trying to find me... I've been spotting on and off the past week, but it has just been tiny, pink streaks. Today, it is significantly more and darker red. Not enough that I'm ready to call AF today, but I'm pretty sure she will come very soon...
On the one hand, yay for the return of a somewhat cycle. On the other- I'm thinking FF might have been right and I DID O- making me 7 DPO. (The more I think about it, I've gotten really crappy sleep the last week d/t ODS being sick and if my temps were higher, then the thermal shift could look convincing, couldn't it? I *am* above a coverline for longer than I have seen during this chart...)
Anywho- if AF starts, that's one lovely LPD I have. Bummer. I'm already doing Vitex and B6. *If* I get AF, WDYT about adding NPC? How much B6 have you done for LPD? I'm only doing 100mg/day (split) b/c that was the level I was comfy at with nursing, but has anyone done higher?
and, ironically, thinking ahead- if I am cycling, I'm going to be OOT the last week of Feb-first week Mar, which would be a likely next O date! arg!
(However, I'm going to a Birthing From Within training, so yay on that!)
I had an appt with my NP yesterday (following my endo/pelvic pain issues) and we talked about TTC. She's checking my thyroid again (was checked in Sept & normal) d/t my low temps, tho she wasn't worried. Other than that, she said basically to wait it out- she didn't want to check any of my other hormones levels (even tho I tried to talk her into a progesterone level just so I would know...
). She was very encouraging of TTC right now given my other health issues.
okay, sorry to not have more time for personals, nak. More later. best to you all.
