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. 

 

It was fantastic! Paired with crackers and cheese and some salad, I had a fantastic night despite waking up to AF this morning. I really didn't even mind seeing her since last night was so nice. :)

 

 

I think I'm going to take this month and next month and work on losing a bit of weight as I am a bit fluffy. I lost 25 pounds right before I got my BFP with Eden so I think it will help this time around too since I am the same size I was before losing that weight. Should be fun to try to do THAT during the holidays, lol. But I'm excited to focus on something else for a bit. We're still going to try to BD during the right time and all but no OPKs, herbs, obsessing and still debating whether I'm going to chart at all this month.... I think that would be harder on me though just because I'm OCD and keeping track makes me feel better. So I still have to decide on that.... but am mainly just going to chill and get healthy :)

LOL.... she didn't have a bottle, just a glass full. Makes it sound so much better that way lol.gif

 

We have a list of names too. LOL! 5 boy names and 5 girl names (not first-middle, just single names for now- if it's a boy it will have Neil for a middle name since that's dp's and his dad's and yada yada middle name. If it's a girl the first or middle name will be Noelle because dp likes it and thinks it's close enough to a girl version of Neil). We only plan on having 1 more baby. It might be a little difficult to pick 1 name out of 10. LOL! And Connor is on our list of boy names too. thumb.gif Just for poops and giggles, because I'm wasting time.... our list of names...

 

Lily

Kylee (or Kylie)

Zoe(y)

Serena

Noelle

 

Connor

Nathanial

Hunter (I don't really like this one but dp does so to appease him it made it to the list. I figure I've got time to talk him out of it, if we do end up with a boy... LOL!)

Ryan

Gavin

post #83 of 194

Steph: I LOVE Gavin. It's such an awesome name. I need to have 29837439 kids to satisfy all the names I like, otherwise my poor children might end up with 16 first/middle names. Hahahaha.

 

AF still hasn't shown her face. This whole, let's play mind games on Nicole business... Is old. >:-( I also have no bloat, no cramps, no sore boobs... No NOTHING.

 

I woke up this morning to my doggy having a seizure. BOO. We go to the vet in 2 hours. I really hope it's not something that requires me to have to shove a pill down her throat everyday for the rest of her life...

Our criteria for a name is to have one that can be pronounced easily in French, English and Italian (DH is italian, we live in the french part of Canada, and we speak English at home)! I am still upset that my parents named me Heidi which is soooooo hard to pronounce/spell for french people and I am half french so I have a lot of trouble with my name! So far we have been able to agree on Liliana for a girl... that is DH's grandmother's name, he lived with her for 10 years and I also lived with her and DH for a year. She passed away shortly after DH and I got our own place, she was the sweetest person ever.

 

We are having more trouble with the boys names, and I am convinced I am going to have a boy first! My favourite is Matteo/Mateo... DH is hesitant on that one because however we decide to spell it, half the people our little boy encounters in his life will get the # of T's wrong and DH is very sensitive about that because his name is Philippe and he has spent his whole life correcting people on the # of L's and P's in his name and it drives him nuts! However I love this name and we could call him Matt for short so maybe I will convince DH eventually! I like to point out to DH that the name Liliana can have the same issues (Lilliana, Lilianna, Lillianna, Lilyanna, etc) but we are definitely going to use that one if we have a girl.

I, too, love Gavin... Elijah had a little boy in his class in a wheel chair named Gavin last year and he was the sweetest, most amazing little boy I have ever met. He made me love that name. <3

 

I also love Lily! I love very feminine names for girls... like flowers, gems or ... gardens! LOL! -- but I've had to deal with having a masculine name all my life so I tend to go for the girly names :)

 

 

I don't know that I could ever top Eden's name for names that I love... I'm so in love with her name and how well it fits her. Elijah's name I've never really been crazy about (I do love his nickname, Eli.... which he never actually uses! GRR!) ... and with our last name, I can't use the boy name I love the most because it sounds like a horrible porn star name, lol. If we have another boy, hubby is set on Rocky ... ick! I guess it's not as bad as the name my neighbor just picked out if it's a girl.... Stella Star.. ROTFL! (or even one our friend recently named her daughter... Serenity Devine)

post #86 of 194

Jeri- that's funny. Owen was supposed to be "Elijah" (Eli for short) but after he was born I just didn't think it fit him. That and ex's mom had already started calling him Eli even though I made it perfectly clear that we hadn't decided on a name. That pissed me off so I refused to name him Elijah. LOL! Hormonal pregnant (or recently not-pregnant) women... LOL! So his middle name is Elijah, but I think Owen fits him really really well. Which is funny because we hadn't even considered the name Owen. It just popped into my head when the nurse came into the room the day after he was born and said I couldn't take him home until I filled out the birth certificate. Owen was the first name to come to my mind, so that was it. If we do have another baby I think we'll stick to the not telling anyone the name (or even potential names) until the baby is born, to avoid all of that. I was young when I had Owen and totally had my mom convinced I was going to name him Moon Rocket. About a week before he was born my mom was begging me to reconsider it (I had told everyone his name was Moon Rocket just to get them to leave me alone). She must have thought I was a crazy nut! LOL!

Hi ladies, may I join you?  CD 8 here and not much going on, can I be added to Waiting to O?  I have two sweet boys from my previous marriage who are 9 and 11 and this is our 2nd cycle trying for #3 (or #1, for my husband!)  No idea what to expect, as I had my first two in my early 20's and didn't really have to "try".  So, I am charting and taking some herbal stuff and hoping for the best!

post #88 of 194

Welcome rockymtnmama! I have 1 son, who is 7, from a previous relationship so we are starting over again too :)

post #89 of 194

 

So AF is due today.  I am awaiting. . . 

 

A2E Nice wine glass!  Glad you had a peaceful evening :)

 

Nicole, hope your doggy is okay.  FX AF stays away and that BFP appears!!!

 

Not Telling - FX for you too!!  energy.gif

post #90 of 194


My AF is due on Monday too, but I O'd late so I'm only on 6 DPO. I don't really have any symptoms now though, I hope that you get your BFP this week!!!

I love Liliana, I wish we had picked that 3 years ago, because that is when we named our cat Lily, so that is out for a baby now :( Matthew was also our top name for a boy until a few months ago when DH decided he would really prefer Andrew (Drew), and our girl name is Annaliese.

My dog has epilepsy. Boo. The doctor said until she has more then one in a month, no medication is necessary. So let's hope she never increases how often she has them because the medicine is twice a day for the rest of her life and she's only a year old... BOO.

 

P.S. Still no AF. *Not getting my hopes up*

 

EDIT: As soon as I posted this, I went pee... And guess what? Please move me to "Waiting to O". This starts cycle 14. Pooty.

Real quick post cuz DS is alone downstairs in the kitchen...

...tested last night and BFN.

This morning big temp drop.  So, today should be the day AF starts fuh'real.  And I'm officially "out" for now.

 

TTCCoC:  Test!  Test!  Test!

post #93 of 194

not telling - So sorry about the temp drop.

 

TTCCorC - hug2.gif  Sorry about AF, and the dog issue... that's quite a day you're having so far!  But, on the positive note, wasn't your LP longer this month than it was in the past?  That's a good thing - means the B Complex is working! 

 

LovingBaby - Fingers are crossed that AF does NOT show for you today... or at all for the next nine months.  :)

 

rockymtnmama - Welcome, and I hope your stay is short!

 

 

As for names, DH and I have picked our Sabrina for a girl (because DH's middle name is Sabri, so it's close).  For boy names, I really like the name Elijah, and we've discussed it... but DH keeps insisting that we'd name a boy after him, like a junior.  I think (or at least hope) that he keeps saying that just to mess with me, but just in case I'm still hoping for a girl.  :)

 

 

 

post #94 of 194

sorry not_telling!!!!

 

Ok, all this name talk is distracting!  That's GOOD!

 

We have three girls already: grace, ayla and norah. 

 

Our boy name is Reid Adam or Reid Alexander, with Connor Adam as a back-up in case of twins. lol! (getting pg with twins on your first round of clomid will do that to you!)

For girls, we have some ideas, but nothing solid.  The middle name will be Pearl (all of our kids will have family middle names)  So there is

Elliot, Isabella (Bella), Riley, Olivia

 

In other news, our foster son is going to his grandma today. :(  Super bummed.

post #95 of 194

Jeri - my DS's name is Edan (with an A)!!!  I love how changing one letter can change the meaning....  Eden means "delight", Edan means "fiery"....  and oh how he DEFINITELY lives up to it!!!  He was going to be either Edan or Brayden (his middle name is Kane, which means "honour").  I'm glad we didn't choose Brayden, because 9 months after he was born my brother and his wife had a little boy and named him Jaydan!!    The "-dan" repetition is enough for me.... lol.gif   (they came up to visit us when Edan was born....  and 9 months later have a baby???  We don't live in that house anymore - but I still can not think of our lounge room floor in the same way now....  ROTFLMAO.gif)

 

Camben was another possiblity, because it was a combination of DH's best friends' names...  but then he had a major falling out with one so it got scrapped (they still haven't spoken now, 6 years later).  If he had been a girl, he would have been Sharna Maddison ("warrior princess").  I'm a big one for name meanings, for some reason.

 

When I fell pg with DS I was teaching at an all-girls school - and I was adamant (and worried at the same time that I'd be wrong!!  lol)  that I was NOT going to have a girl.  Phew!!!  Now I've been teaching co-ed for years and it's sooooooooo  hard!!!  There are SOOOOO many names I like that now have a "negative" association with them....  duck.gif I do have a girl's name I really like (I've never taught one, thankfully!!) if we ever conceive and have a girl.  Boys' names are proving much harder this time around...

2 of my favorite names (Isabella and Olivia)! DP has vetoed both though. Bummer. Owen would have been Olivia if he had been a girl.

post #97 of 194

So AF is here.  Could you move me to Waiting to O on our 7th cycle?!!  So depressing...  

 

Why is it not working this time?  Its worked in the past... I am tempted to make an appt with the drs.  Or maybe order one of those online kits for checking the swimmers.  Rant rant rant!  :D  

post #98 of 194

Sigh. I just realized that my previous cycle was only 23 days long. Arrrgh!

post #99 of 194

Sonatina #1, F. Schubert: Round 2...

 

GOOOOOAAAALLL!!!!   I just kicked my solo's ASS!!! joy.gif

 

Sorry, that's all I got for now.  Will come on and read through when i get home...  ^_^

post #100 of 194

Stevi - I'm sorry about your shorter cycle.  Have you had an issue with that before?  Do you think maybe you just O'ed earlier than you thought? 

 

LovingBaby - hug2.gif  So sorry about AF. 

 

SleepingBeauty - CONGRATS on the great solo!  I know that has to be a great feeling.
