Anyone want to volunteer to be threadkeeper next month?  It's lucky!!


naawww....  thanks love.gif.  Not so much will power as a strong desire not to be devastated all over again.  It was a pretty sh*tty week....  walked into the staffroom and saw that someone had written "S's having a baby morning tea" on our breakdown for Friday.  I am so completely happy for her - they've been trying since just before they got married in April....  but after my latest early m/c last month  - well, I guess I wasn't as over it as I thought I was.  mecry.gifAnd it's dumb, really - because I'm (apparently) an "ice queen"....  I don't get emotional.  Not ever (my mother hates that about me... lol).

 

 

Anyway, yesterday afternoon and this morning I had some light spotting (light - as in I had to go find it...).  I think it's a little heavier now, but not much.  We'll see if it develops into anything I guess.  It's very odd for me to be this late....  but I really don't think I'm in with any kind of chance this month.  I think my cycle is just screwed up this month for some reason.  Actually I think my hormones might be screwed up too - which might explain why I've been feeling "almost ill" for the last couple of weeks.

 

And I would love to be threadkeeper - but I'm going to have to wait a couple of weeks until I've finished performances and writing reports....  I'm sure there's someone else who could do with the threadkeeper's luck more than I do at the moment. love.gif

 

 

...

 

 

ETA:  the witch stopped tapping at the door and just came barging through uninvited this afternoon banghead.gif (what was I saying about threadkeeper's luck?  lol).  So CD1 for me  -  and here's to a fresh and fertile reproductive month (AND my DH is not going away this month, so no stressing about timing!!!!  Woohoo!!!) with a new prenatal and Vitex.  

 

DS sat on my lap this afternoon to give me a cuddle, and just came out with "Mum, why aren't you pregnant yet?" yikes.gif Sigh.  I'm trying honey, really I am. love.gif

Anyone thought more about taking threadkeeper for Dec?  2 days to go!

post #207 of 231

Hello.. I will be happy to be threadkeeper, but I was threadkeeper in October and don't want to step on anyone's toes.. it's really easy - so don't be afraid, if you want to.  Otherwise, no problem.. I could use a little threadkeeper's luck and we have to bid farewell to our pregnant friend Copper!!  tiphat.gif

I had a little consultation with a midwife and was told I need to mellow out on my exercise routine and up my calorie intake and then she suggested Maca, which I have taken before but obviously will be taking up again, as well as maybe looking in to acupuncture. New things to implement. It is stressing me a bit just thinking about not keeping up my routine just because sometimes I feel like that is helping me stay sane, but then again if it is causing a problem I don't really want to keep doing it!  I can't believe it has been this long and I am still not pregnant.

I didn't catch the thread keeper part. I don't mind doing it.

I have read in several places to have DH take Maca, said to up the sperm count. Not sure about that yet, I'll know on Wednesday, but wow, his libido went through the roof. If your DH will do it, it might be worth a try....

I will mention it to him. I am sure that he will be willing.

OJ, it's really easy to be thread keeper.  For the first post, just hit "reply" on the first post of this thread, and then copy and paste everything to a new thread.  Does that make sense?  I feel like Taxlady explained it a lot better to me, haha!  Then you just watch for new info through out the month and edit that first post. 

 

Taxlady, any input to make this more clear?

post #215 of 231

Yes!  OJazzy1 - you should be threadkeeper and it is just as Copper says. All you have to do is copy and paste.. once you paste into a new thread you will see all the "behind the scenes" stuff where you can move the ladies on the list around, change the color or the font.  Then if you need to update it because someone needs to be moved you just go in and "edit" the post.  SUPER SIMPLE!  GOOD LUCK!! (and if you need more help - just holla)

So I had made a dr. appointment to find out why I was having all this weird spotting. I went this morning, and it turns out...pos.gif

jaw.gif   I can't believe it! I was sure the spotting last week meant AF was coming, but it turns out it was probably implantation bleeding. I am getting my thyroid checked again, just to make sure it's working, but I'm actually pregnant.

 

Thanks for all the support and advice - you ladies are awesome! I will still check in and send you lots and lots of baby dust!!dust.gif
