post #41 of 426
Hey, I've got a question for you guys!

What do you think OH should do to prepare to TTC? So far we're...
-getting to a healthy weight (he has too much, I'm at a healthy weight put would like to add a little on)
-eating better (he's a picky one!)
-taking men's/women's vitamins (Rainbow brand! Love them!)
-looking for a gym to join (getting there...)
-walking when it's nice out. (yay! it's getting warm again!)

I figure that should be good for now but is there anything you think we're missing? We've got a bit to go but for our own health it would be good to get going sooner, you know?

Thanks!



Also, GOOD LUCK to all these testers this week! I really hope those huge stockpiles you all have will be wasted becuase you all get blaring BFP's on your next test! :

CLH - well I'm assuming it wasn't FMU considering the time diff so test again (and again....)

Karma - Ha. I was in the attic looking for my spring clothes, I've decided winter is over even though it's only 38 degrees out. I actually feel like dumping all my clothes and buying an entire new wardrobe.... everything I have looks so dated and blah.

So what is the reasonable first day to take an HPT? I know I know, I said I was going to wait until 12 dpo but now 5 dpo is looking kind of good.

Personally, I wait until AF is 1 day late but I'm not dumb enough to believe that we're all that patient! hahaha On occasion I will cave and test at 12dpo or something around then.
post #46 of 426
So much activity on this new thread! Michelle, I started testing at 6dpo this time so I'm not going to give out any advice. 4dpo is sooo boring! Hope the week flies by!

Another BFN this morning although I swear I saw something when the dye was going across but it didn't dry with any sort of line. My temps look nothing like my post-O temps from last cycle but who knows, that coud just be the Clomid making my chart so pretty. I'm still hopeful! My boobs are no where near as sore to the touch as they generally are around this time, although my right one just keeps intermittently aching. I need to do some spring cleaning around the house today but I just can't find the energy. DH and I did some babysitting last night for the family I am a nanny for and the little one wanted nothing to do with me, he just wanted to play with DH. DH ended up reading him about 10 books and he was the one to put him to bed too. It was super cute and as we were driving home DH said, "I totally see why you come home wanting one of our own so badly every day." Only a few more days until I know for sure! And spring break is over so I will be back to being super busy with school and hopefully that will keep my mind off things these last few days.

AFM: I'm 6DPO today. Implantation dip?

I tested, just in case my CBFM was correct and I O'd earlier than FF (and my temps) say.

BFN. Big time. See?

Back to your regularly scheduled waaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiting............

I'm officially waiting to o. I've been bleeding for about three days now, definitely AF.

I'm LOL at all the pg tests! I have a few in my bathroom from a few weeks ago. I'm not hopeful about this month, but I'm not buying any more until I'm at least a day late! Those will have to do.
post #49 of 426
MI- that's a possibility there for sure on the dip. and you thought your stash was bad? oh, that's nothing. fm, show her. ill get a pic too, might be tomorrow tho so i can drag it all out when no one is home. although, my stocks do need replenishing.

SimplyRochelle- still very hopeful for you. i think things look good.

fm- i think i am going to wait until ff says it's at least a 50-50 chance.

sleepingbeauty- sounds like a good healthy lifestyle.

sweetbee- you are funny. i am not sure how you figure it's a good excuse to get off the pills???? i guess when we want to we can find lots of good reasons, right?

vivica- welcome. that link is almost right- it's just that without that info after the last slash, but keria can still do it (if she hasnt posted it already, i didnt check.) i would say waiting to be ready. it's great to chart ahead so you will have a good idea of when you o, make sure lp is good length, etc.

Thanks for the new thread, this week really snuck up on me!

You guys are hilarious! Thanks for the laughs Not sure when I last posted but seems there's a bunch of us who are cycle buddies. I'm 8-ish DPO and loving my chart so far but impatient and bored. Actually tested this a.m. with a $tree BFN of course.

I found my chart from conceiving DD yesterday and realized I didn't have any real symptoms (morning sickness) until like 13 DPO, then no BFP until 16 DPO, and a faint one at that. Crap! Does that necessarily mean I wouldn't until that late next time around or is every pg really different? Who knows....[sigh]

GL and to everyone!

Holy cow, that's quite a stash you've got there. I've got one box of digital strips hidden in my medicine cabinet, so my visiting ILs won't see it!

Hopefully you'll get a BFP soon and be able to sell all of those on Ebay.

Well, the reasoning is I need to make sure my body isn't broken. Um, right, yeah, that's it. Sure.

... ... ...

No, I don't buy it either.

Great, now I'm hungry for something sweet. I think we have an old once-melted chocolate heart lying around somewhere. Hmm, no, that's gross. I was going to bake bread today, but I was lazy. Well, that and I spent the entire day cleaning and trying to convince my soon-to-be 11 month-old not to destroy everything in sight. Still, now I'm wishing I had baked something. Maybe, brownies. Yum.

Thanks for the new thread!

Finn - those PB eggs sound delicious!

SBeauty - your pre-TTC list "to-do" list sounds good to me! Good for you for trying to take care of all of that beforehand.

Sweet.B - your rationale sounds logical to me!!

Hopefully a lot of those BFNs that ladies posted are just because it's too early. (cough, MI Dawn, cough)

My ILs are here, and don't get real Jewish cooking where they live, so I'm spending today making a pot of chicken soup and matzoh balls. I like cooking during 2WWs... it gives me something to think about besides POAS!! We're going to DH's aunt's house tomorrow, and his cousins and their kids (5 under 5!) are all going to be there. If one person asks when I'm adding to the collection, I may throw something.

I really, really, really wish I knew when I o'd. Temp stayed high today, and in any other month, at 13 dpo, I would've been peeing on anything I could find... but since I don't know if it's really 13 dpo, this could be a big giant fake out.

Yes grey means BFP this week

Nah just means who ever posted changes colors to keep the list updated

divine, i could buy cd9, the thing that throws me off is the cm, and your previous charts being so consistent with cd13. have you asked ff to review it for you? i would be interested in what they have to say.
