The Awesome ONE THREAD for Dec. 5th - Dec. 11th - Page 4

post #61 of 194

A2E - Glad you are feeling better!  And heck no, 3pm is not too early for a glass of wine.  Cheers!  drink.gif

post #62 of 194

Gozal: That sounds frustrating but hopefully you'll get answers soon and be able to figure out the next step.

 

LovingBaby: crossing fingers for you...

 

A2E:  Agreed.  3pm is so not too early for a glass of wine.  I have a little group of moms and little boys that DS and I have gotten together with every week since the boys were a few months old.  First we got together for lunch...which always included wine.  Then "happy  hour" (3:30-5:30)...which also included wine or some other alcoholic beverage.  Now we're meeting at 10:30am so it's just coffee and tea.

 

AFM...I was just getting DS ready for his nap and when he climbed up on my lap for a story he patted my tummy and said "Is there a baby in here?"  DH and I haven't been talking that much about TTC in front of him, and when we do it's mostly "in code."  But, there are other pregnant mommies in his life and the other day he was saying something about being born and I said he used to be in my tummy before he was born...a fact which he decided to deny. eyesroll.gif

 

So, my spotting is kinda...weird......or maybe I'm just trying to read between lines that aren't there.  Defintely some brownish spotting this morning, but the last 4-5 hours I've only see kinda pink or brown tinged CM.  This is 17DPO and still high temps...in fact this morning went up 1/10 from yesterday.  BUT, I did get up to pee about 2 hours before temping.  BUT, I get up to pee 2-4 hours before temping probably every 2-3 days anyway.  And our bed was extra toasty last night...added the wool mattress topper and put on the down quilt.  I wish this wasn't my first cycle back on the temping train.  My old charts (before pregnancy) were all 14-15 day luteal phases.  Seems weird that this one is going on past that.  Maybe if spotting doesn't get heavier today/tonight and my temp is still high in the morning I should test again...??

 

15-17DPO is too late for implantation spotting, right?

And while I'm definitely not having anything "flow-ish" it's certainly more than a few specks of blood.  I've just been wearing a pantyliner and it's totally sufficient.

Officially obsessing too much.

 MelungeonMW - congrats on your partners job an i hope the work trip does not inter fear with O!

 


Attached2Elijah - So sorry, the burn out sucks. 3pm is not too early! :) I have considered it many a day! I love when I am cooking with wine or beer, then I don't feel guilty for drinking a bit before DH is home form work!

Sorry, A2E. =(

 

AFM: AF still isn't here, but I tested - again this morning with FMU. My boobs are still killing me though. I had some minor cramps last night, so I expected to start this morning, but... Nope. Do you think the B-Complex could have lengthened my cycle???

I think B-complex could most certainly lengthen LP. This was my first cycle on B-complex and progesterone, if I had not gotten a BFP I was interested to see how my LP was impacted and also how my period would turn out. I typically have an 8 day period, the last 4 or 5 days being light or spotting, I was really hoping it would be shorter.
 

 

 gozal - Thank you! I am feeling good, tired and a little crampy, but nothing unbearable. I will endure just about anything to stay PG!

 

I hope you get helpful answers from the tests, keep us posted!
 


not_telling - Have you tested? Implantation spotting/bleeding can occur up to 6 weeks I think. At least that is what the ER doc told me when I went in bleeding at 6 weeks with DD1. It can take a while for them to burrow in there.

 

Thanks again to everyone for the warm wishes. I am feeling good. I will call the doctor sometime next week, I would feel like a nut calling before I was even 4 weeks. If I were not on progesterone already I would to get tests and a prescription, but since I am on it I don't think there is much else I can do other then try to relax! I have enough IC tests to last over a week, I can obsess over them for now! Today's was darker!

Hmmmm.... neither seem to be a great option. LOL!



Yeah that's a tough choice! If it were me, I would stop the pills... the more time you have to recover from all those artificial hormones being in your body, the sooner you will get your BFP!

Thanks! I talked to dp about it and he was pretty much "do whatever you want, if we get pregnant now it's all good". Woo! So last night was my last pill! Please move me to WAITING TO O!!!

I tested on 13DPO and was negative...hmmm...up to 6 weeks, huh?

Well, that would certainly be an interesting turn of events.  Of course, I was doing some reading online and now I'm (a teensy bit) anxious that it could be an ectopic pregnancy or something else not fun.  But, most likely tomorrow my temp will be lower and AF will say, "oh!  sorry!  just running a bit late...it's ok, I'm here now..." thumb.gif

Hi Ladies!

 

A2E:  Woohoo for wine!! That glass is GINORMOUS!!!! :)

 

TTCCOC and not_telling-  Fingers crossed for you two!!!

 

Just stopped into say hi.  Nothing going on here at 8 DPO.  

post #69 of 194

A2E- any time after noon is OK with me for wine!

TTCCoC &  not telling- good luck, ill cross my fingers for you!!

StephandOwen: Yay!! I love when the men in our lives talk all sensible idea.gif

 

AFM: 5 DPO, nothing has changed, I had little pains in my uterus area all day, but being on so many new things this cycle I'm not jumping to any conclusions. Tomorrow is CD 23, which is when I started spotting last cycle, but I am expecting a longer cycle this month b/c of B6, Vitex and just normally my cycle goes short one month and 'long' the next- usually 27/29, but last month was 25... Hmmph, the wait goes on.

post #70 of 194

Well, I got a minor case of bloat at work tonight. I texted DH and was like, "The bloating has begun, now we wait for the blood"... Then the bloating disappeared. Then the upper leg pains started and I just 'felt' like the bleeding was about the begin. It was the whole... Everytime I feel something down there, I go running for the bathroom thinking it's her! But it never happened, and I'm back to normal now. This is weird.

But I fully expect AF to show up any day now, being the realist that I am. Especially since my boobs don't really hurt anymore like they have been. Hmph.

 

I told DH if we weren't pregnant by Jan., I was going to start temping. =( He said, "Why are you so sure it's you? You keep doing all these things for yourself and you may not even be the problem. I'll make an appointment to get checked out before you start temping." I freaking love him. =D

Ttcchloeorconnor(dude do you have a NAME already?  I always mess up spelling your username lol!)  It ain't over till it's over!  I was FOR SURE getting af with three of pregnancies. ;)  And your dh is too sweet!

 

Jeri:  LMAO!

 

4dpo sucks.  BORING!  Can't rely on any symptoms at all because of the stupid progesterone! So I wait.  I have over 50 IC in the cupboard, calling my name lol.  Luckily our new little guy is a wonderful distraction this week, even if he is going to be transferred to grandma's soon!

One of my Baby Think It Overs in high school was named Connor. orngbiggrin.gif Well, I think that was the middle name, I can't remember the first name.  Whoops.  I love the name Chloe too but my sister's ex BIL and SIL just named their baby "Khloe" so they ruined it for me.

post #74 of 194

I've always, always, always loved Chloe. Conner was one DH and I brainstormed together. We want 4. So far we have Chloe Marie (My Mom and my's middle name is Marie), Conner Dean (My Dad's middle name is Dean), Jackson Thomas (My GPa's name is Jack and my DH's middle name is Thomas), and... The last girl name is unknown at this point, but her middle name will be Ann, after DH's Mom. =D

 

P.S. Still no AF yet. *Not getting my hopes up!!!* But in one hour, she's officially one day late.

LMAO at the names Nicole!  :D  We had our "two of each" planned...then we had three girls! I really really want to be able to use our boy name!   If we end up with twin boys (har har...until i remember that dd1 was a clomid twin!) one would be connor. :)

Chloe with a K reminds me of Khloe Khardashian... I think that's how you spell it. And, gross.

post #77 of 194

I know having all of these names planned out will only cause me to have 923874 of the same sex, but it's fun to play!!! =D IDK why I chose Conner with an 'e'... I guess it's just the way I pronounce it. But seeing as everyone else is spelling it with an 'o', I feel like he'll go through his whole life with people misspelling his name... Like I have... My name does NOT have an 'h' in it. LOL I am NOT Nichole. I am Nicole. =D So I might have to change it to Connor... We'll see.

post #78 of 194

Ah, I knew of Kim Khardashian but didn't know there was a Khloe too.  I'm guessing in their case, they wanted to be different when choosing their girls name because ALL of the males in their family (even the brothers) have the same 3-4 names.  My sister's ex was very, very angry when she refused to use any of their names. lol.gif  I mean, family names are one thing, but even the brothers share some of the same names and its to the point that Brother #1 goes by his middle and Brother #2 goes by a nickname of his middle name because too many of their names are the same as other family members.  When you have to start doing that, its time to branch out. LOL

A2E - That glass of wine looks fantastic!  I hope you enjoyed!!

 

TTCCorC - My fingers are crossed for you!  And that's FANTASTIC that your DH was so ready to go for testing before you even start temping.  I've gotten DH to agree to testing before we make the move towards have surgery on my blocked fallopian tube, but am having issues getting him to agree to any earlier than that.  Lucky you! 

 

not_telling - I hope you get your BFP soon!  My fingers are crossed.

 

AFM - 2dpo.  Nothing to report, except some cramping yesterday (maybe late O cramps?).  The 2ww stinks.

 

post #80 of 194

Good morning ladies!

 

not_telling and TTCCOC -- Bah!!!  You guys have me obsessing!  I am anxiously waiting to see what happens for you guys!!! Fingers crossed!!! :)

 

A2E -- how was your bottle of wine last night?  :)

 

AFM...9 DPO.  No desire to test.  Too scared to see a negative and convinced I will never get a BFP.  :-P  Weird cramping this morning but hard to tell if it's uterine or other things.  Temp went up a bit but isn't out of range compared to previous charts.  AF is due on Monday, so we'll see how next week goes.
