Nursing Mamas TTC February - Page 8

post #141 of 150

Welcome to the new gals!

 

MamatoD- I wasn't offended (I did finally read the article). I think what it said was interesting, but I don't think it matters, too much! Did you test yet??? fingersx.gif

 

Ava'sMamma- Thanks! I hope that mine will even out, too. It definitely makes me feel for women who have to deal with heavy periods all the time!

I am 12 dpo, just got back from a weekend away & couldn't hold back from testing even though it wasn't FMU. I *believe* I now know what a "squinter" is! winky.gif Shall check in again tomorrow to confirm but at this point I am very excited! joy.gif

 

FWIW, if it is in fact positive, I will be ELATED beyond belief to be welcoming a November babe. About a year ago I had many of the same thoughts that I have read recently on this thread - worrying about a birthday too close to the holidays, a newborn in winter, etc. Fast-forward to today and those concerns seem silly to me. In fact, I can think of a million reasons why winter babies are fabulous & ideally timed. In any case, a baby will be very welcome here regardless of its arrival date. love.gif Of course we are all in different situations and have every right to our opinions, just thought I'd offer a different perspective. smile.gif

 

Sending loads and loads of dust.gifto everyone, and especially those in the 2ww!

Yay Peaches'mom!! Can't wait to hear for sure!!  I have a Nov. baby (well not a baby anymore!) and it was wonderful staying inside and snuggling for the first few months!! Never had to put him down because it was too hot!! Then when it did get hot, he was wanting down anyway. jumpers.gif Keep us informed!!!!

No problem with the wording, I just misunderstood. I would really hate to insult anyone, but yes especially the title of the article sounds a bit offhanded. Are you testing this week?

 

 

Good luck Wendlynnn, I hope the wait goes quickly with some really great news at the end!

Congratulations Peaches' Mom, I hope you got a clear line this morning. I always love to see pictures as well!

 

AFM: I tested on Saturday and Sunday, both BFNs  I didn't even bother this morning. I'm feeling  sure I'm out this month, I'm still having some EWCF, so it looks like I didn't ovulate at all... grrr. Oh well, my plan is to hang out and wait for AF and concentrate on night weaning my ds. I feel like we would both sleep better, and then I could feel like I'm doing something proactive for TTC, instead of just getting frustrated with my body for not working right. Any tips for night weaning? I'm  planning to keep co-sleeping and any advice is appreciated. Welcome to the new mamas and good luck!

Hi everyone-

 

2ww here I think.....The basal body thermometer I use was broken and getting fixed, so I didnt start temping until day 18 of my cycle. I may have already ovulated by then. I had been trying to keep track just with the CM, but Im not the best at that. Oh well - I guess we will see. If I do not conceive this cycle and AF is on time, I will get her right smack dab in the middle of my beach vacation in the DR irked.gif

Peaches mom - It looks like you and I are in the same boat.  I'm 11 dpo and there it is a VERY, VERY, VERY faint line on a Clearblue Easy.  But, it definitely is there.  So, I'm NOT making any announcements yet, but I'm getting excited.  I went out to the store and bought a pack of the FRER tests and took it this afternoon.  It was also faintly positive.  (I was getting worried about all the false positives that I hear from Clearble Easy +/- tests.)  But, the dollar store New Choice HPT was still negative.  I now hate those things...  (P.S. We could have an 11/11/11 baby!)

 

MamatoD - The No Cry Sleep Solution by Elizabeth Pantley is a great book for night weaning.  She breastfeeds and co-sleeps.  Nice book.

Hi there! I am supposed to get af today abd I was goig to wait until tomorrow to teat but I tested this morning instead. It was negative. I have some mild cramping so I guess I will just wait and see if she arrives and if not maybe test again tomorrow. Congrats on the positive testers this month!

joy.gif  It's true - we're expecting a November babe!!! joy.gif

 

Best of luck to Wendylynn & Xerxella, I hope to see you both in the Nov ddc!

 

I'll be checking in periodically to keep up with you all. Kami, I am keeping my fingers crossed for you. I am optimistic that the sono and/or the clomid challenge will bring great things! KUP!!!

 

Thanks so much for this great thread, the support and commiserating has meant a lot in this journey. Sending lots of goodvibes.gif  to you all!

Dr. Jay Gordon has a really helpful article on his site about night weaning. It worked for us! I wrote a blog about it too. http://theadventuresoflactatinggirl.com/2011/02/28/adventures-in-night-weaning/
