Sourire: So sorry for your loss :(  And so glad you won't be taking the provera... that made me nervous for you reading it... I couldn't NOT say anything and have you take something that would hinder all of your efforts, ya know? Glad you had someone else to ask! :)


jilly: Congrats on the foster baby! How awesome... I bet that just makes your uterus ache even more huh? I know it would me!


not_telling: Hope you are surprised and AF doesn't show up.


cbaa: Yeah, that can, indeed, happen. Especially if you were talking, ate or drank something or were even chilled. Tons of things affect oral temperatures so taking it during the day really won't tell you much so try to avoid it (so says the woman who takes her temp during the day at least 10 times a day in the LP) :)


Jojo: I know, I tell myself that all the time... and I vaguely remember thinking AF was on her way with BOTH kids before my BFP so I don't know why I let it bother me, lol. I just hate the 2ww and lately I seem to be very pessimistic during it. I guess I don't have very much faith in my body.


Steph: Wish I had some advice for you... I have never taken BC pills in my life so I'm worthless on that subject but I'm so excited for you to start TTC with us! :) It would be awesome if we were pregnant and due together again! :)


Vtech: Welcome!!! I will add you to the list... but where are you in your cycle so I know where to put you? Hope your stay is super short and you get your BFP ASAP!


AFM: Sorry I have been lagging in the updating of the list lately... been super busy. My pessimistic attitude with the whole TTC thing isn't helping either. Honestly, it's too early to already be counting myself out ... but I just worry that because I want it so bad this month that there is no way it would possibly happen. It would be wonderful to be surprised though. :) Hoping my temp goes back up in the morning though... my chart is looking sucky right now. Of course, so did my pregnancy chart until 13dpo so I guess I shouldn't read into anything just yet.


And because I, apparently, just can't stop myself from whining... I fell on the ice today and hurt the whole right side of my body. My shoulder, back and left knee are INCREDIBLY sore... and being 10dpo, I am TRYING not to take any kind of pain meds (don't have any tylenol in the house... boo!) for it. I may not be able to hold out tomorrow if this gets any worse. Stupid black ice!

Thanks for the new thread! 

post #4 of 194

Thanks for the thread again, A2E.

 

Someone else just announced their pregnancy on Facebook. laskdjflkasjdflaskdjf

 

AF is due Tuesday. I haven't tested yet. Yay for me! I even went out and drank last night and didn't test beforehand. I ALWAYS test before I go out drinking "just in case", but I really tried to relax and not think about it... And I had a freaking blast. Girls' nights are so much fun.

 

CM has been abundant. I've been having weird small sharp pains in the uterus area. Boobs still hurt. Not obsessing.

 

Hey VTechMom!!! I'll be in school in January doing the Vet Tech program. =D Super excited about it.

post #5 of 194

Thanks for the new thread A2E!!!

A2E- I did talk a little after taking it-- I will try again tomorrow!

 

 

Anyone else spend way too much time staring at their fertility chart??? Honestly, I just stare at it thinking something miraculous will come up on the screen with some answers, like a puzzle I just can't quite figure out...

post #6 of 194

Thanks for the thread again A2E!   I'll do next week, if noone else wants to (and because I won't have to worry about doing reports/concerts/awards/etc etc etc etc!!  So I'll have some time.)

 

AFM:  just subbing really....  CD9, still feel like poo fever.gif sneeze.gif (but much better than the past couple of days!).  12 reports to finish, 1 more performance tomorrow night, and altogether 7 more days of school left!!!  3 for the kids - 3 more after that for me, then a staff Christmas lunch (school takes us to a nice restaurant).  I love my school!  

 

Have a great week everyone!  makebabe.gif love.gif

post #7 of 194

Thanks Jeri! Going to repost what I just posted in the other thread in case anybody has any ideas! That would be awesome if we could be due date buddies again!!

 

Daaaang, I got behind in this thread! I think I've caught up now!

 

Just popping in to ask if anyone knows what the heck I should expect. I should have taken my blank week of pills starting last Sunday. Last Wednesday AF should have started. But I didn't take a blank week, I just started a new pack (trying to skip AF to get AF the week before our wedding instead of right during our honeymoon/wedding). Wednesday passed with no spotting or anything so I thought I was in the clear. Today I woke up to spotting and cramping. Doh! So if I end up getting AF right now (today is day 8 of this pack of pills) then what's going to happen? December 18th will be my last pill. AF should start Dec 22. But if AF is going to start now then will it start again so soon (on the 22nd)?!? Or should I expect it 4 weeks from today (which would be the day after our wedding)? If I just stop taking the pills right now can I expect a full blown AF now? If *that's* the case I'm almost tempted to stop taking the pill now, let AF come right now and then just start TTC right now. But it would suck to get AF the day of or after our wedding. But on the other hand, it would rock to get a BFP on the day of our wedding!

Sounds like we're in the same boat....although I did cave and test the other morning and last night when we had friends over I didn't drink any alcohol...just in case... nut.gif

Good for you for going out and having fun!

 

Trying to ignore the cramps/aches etc. I've been feeling for at least a week.  Trying to not read anything into the fact that I've been feeling exhausted for the past few days...and slightly nauseated (which sometimes happens when I'm really tired....and I haven't been sleeping well the last few days....).  Still nothing I would call spotting yet...although this evening, in addition to lots of yellowy CM, there was a little very light brown CM...so still thinking AF is on the way...but still feeling like it's weird that there hasn't been spotting yet. 

 

I'm just hoping to get a really good night's sleep tonight.  Let's hope DS cooperates.  DH and I went to see Harry Potter this afternoon and my dad babysat.  He had to put DS down for a nap, which he never does (this is probably the first time neither DH nor I were hope at DS's nap time).  Sufficed to say, I don't think DS slept AT ALL.  Or maybe just 20-30 minutes.  And don't get me started on my dad handing DS a dirty sippy cup that's been sitting waiting to be washed for weeks redface.gif (amongst other dirty dishes) even though I explicitely showed him the cup DS was drinking from today.  And letting the cat stay in DS's room while he was trying to get DS to go to sleep after I said the cat had to kicked out when they started the naptime routine...

 

And, yes, truly, I am very grateful that my parents live close enough to babysit often and have a great relationship with DS....I just don't like these little....quirks.

Oops, forgot to get myself moved.  Can I please be moved to Waiting to O?

post #10 of 194

Hi all!  Please put me in Waiting to O though I suspect I'll only be there for a day or two with the very positive OPK I got this afternoon.

 

TTCCoC - Good luck in school!  I can barely begin to tell you just how much I love my job.  I've been working as a tech for years but I'm actually doing an on-line program now to get licensed, not required in my state but I want to specialize in surgery.  That's the one thing I'm definitely going to miss while pregnant, no surgery time for me.  We don't have the proper personal ventilator so when pregnant you get kicked out of anything to do with anesthesia or x-ray.  I won't miss x-ray (no fun heaving a 200lb saint bernard onto an x-ray table and then trying to get them to stay still), but I will be sad about some of the awesome surgeries.

 

A2E - Can I be pessimistic with you?  LOL, I tend towards that anyway, I'd rather have a happy surprise then unexpected disappointment.  Being sick during O time isn't helping any either.  My kiddos are both winter babies though so I'm hoping that means that maybe my really fertile time is just a few months away.

post #11 of 194

Thanks for the new thread A2E! Slipping on ice is so annoying, I hope you feel better soon.

 

StephandOwen... I used to take the pill. I stopped over 3 years ago because it was causing me all sorts of problems. But based on my experience I think you could expect to start AF if you stopped taking the pills now. If you continue until December 18, there is a good chance you would get AF when you stop. Then again based on my experience the pill caused me to bleed almost all the time... whether I stopped taking it or not. That is one of the reasons I am never going near hormonal birth control again!

 

Welcome vtechmom! Glad to have you with us!

 

AFM - I don't have to go to work tomorrow cause it's my uncle's funeral! I know I shouldn't be happy about going to someone's funeral, but his life was pretty tough and he is probably happier where he is now, and I love any excuse to skip a day of work. I also put up my Christmas tree this evening, which was fun :)

post #12 of 194

Thanks for the new thread, A2E!  You deserve some sort of cosmic reward for doing so much thread duty.  Sorry about the ice incident - I hope you feel better soon.  I try to get in at least one spectacular fall per season, just to keep myself humble.  Grr.

 

Sourire - so sorry for your loss.

*raises hand*   Hi.  Yes.  Me.

 

AFM:  This is the heaviest AF I've had since I went off birth control (and of course they were always very light while I was on BC).  I kinda like it, I mean, it's a hassle but I feel like my uterus is really taking care of business this cycle. 

 

EDIT:  For those of you who like to overanalyze your 2ww symptoms - I've been enjoying this thread http://www.mothering.com/community/forum/thread/1283185/week-3-4-5-symptoms in August DDC (even though I know that won't be my DDC).

-raises hand-

 

I've been sitting here agonizing over whether or not to fit in more BD'ing before tomorrow, which I'm pretty sure is going to be O day.  DP started a second job though (why, I don't know, he just wanted to) so he's been sooo tired.  The second job is a new restaurant so he trained there all week in the morning, and then worked a double today at the first job.  So of course he crashed as soon as he hit the door tonight.  I'm pretty sure he's got to work at the new place in the morning since tomorrow is their grand opening.  So I would feel bad if I woke him up.  Maybe I'll have to get up early myself for some morning BD'ing. orngbiggrin.gif  That would make me feel better.

Hi everyone!  Just checking in.  I hope you are all doing fantastic and well!

 

I'm just hanging out at CD 7.  It's my third day on soy and I'm rather emotional and a tiny bit nauseous.  Oh, and I had the tiniest amount of spotting today too.  It probably wouldn't have been noticeable to someone who isn't TTC. LOL

 

Question:  Has anyone on soy had their O day moved up?  I'm normally a late ovulater and I'd like O early this time so that hopefully I can have a BIG announcement on Christmas.  I can dream, right?

post #15 of 194

carly:  Sperm count is higher in the morning. ;)

 

Normally I'd be driving myself crazy at 2dpo, but having a nb around is SO distracting!  :D

post #16 of 194

Thanks for the new thread, Jeri!!  I hope you feel better soon -- falling is no fun.  And go get some Tylenol! :)  Can you please move me to Waiting to Know?  I forgot to ask to be moved and I am now 7 DPO.  Chart looks pretty benign. 

 

Trying not to think about it at all, and being surprisingly successful...I think because I am pretty pessimistic about the whole thing.  I have also been trying to keep away from the boards just to keep my mind off of things.  Although I really do miss you ladies!!! :( 

post #17 of 194

Heidi, sorry for your loss.

 

AFM, BFN again today. I'm 13dpo and no symptoms in sight.  I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant this month. I was really feeling more positive. My temps had started to decline but the past 3 temps have been really high so I thought maybe that was a good sign.  Our timing was good, CM was good, I'm taking B complex and prometrium now so I should be able to STAY pregnant if I get pregnant, so now I just don't understand why I'm not getting pregnant.  It only took 1 time with my first two so I don't know why this is taking so long.  So, I guess I'm just waiting for AF.  And then onto cycle #12.  

post #18 of 194

A2E: Get some Tylenol! I hope you feel better soon. Slipping on ice is awful. I did that once badly last year and wrenched my knee, it sucked.

 

For all of you ladies who are not obsessing during your 2ww, I'm going to obsess for you :)

 

dust.gifdust.gifdust.gif to everyone!

post #19 of 194

Ouch, Jeri! Take it easy today. I'm sorry you're in pain.

 

Thanks Sourire! I think I'll probably just keep taking it for the next couple weeks and then stop on the 18th and hope AF shows up soon after! And then to add more stress.... dp just found out that he's probably going to China in mid-January for a few weeks. If AF comes when I want it to, we should be good if my body works nicely (ovulates about 2 weeks after AF). He would be gone if I were to get a BFP though. If AF is late or if I take longer to ovulate then we'll probably miss this first month of trying. Oh well, it'll all work out in the end, right?

post #20 of 194

please move me to Waiting to know (2WW). Thanks very much.My test day is 9th December 2010.
