The Fiercely Fortuitously Fantastically ***FERTILE*** ~ONE THREAD~ 2.20-2.26 - Page 6

Whew... lot's to reply to and it's only 3pm! Okay:

 

TTCCoC: So sorry about your bachelorette party. That really sucks.  hug2.gif

 

A2E: We're going for implantation dip here. Keeping hope alive for you!  

 

Mummoth: that is the best chart I've seen in a long time. It looks amazing! You are the one to stalk right now.  :)

 

Brichole: good luck with making that decision. I'm sure dh will get over it! A D is still pretty big... he'll deal!

 

Stevi: cracking me up with the "belly shot." spitdrink.gif

 

Gemmine: Looking good! Keeping an eye on you! 

 

Xerella: where are you? Doing okay?

 

Thanks to everyone for the thoughts on the god thing. I'm not much of a believer, either, but it did make me pause and think a bit. But you're all right... it's a stupid thought.

 

AFM: just trying to stay positive. I had my big cry this morning, so I should be good. Looking toward next month, thinking I might O on a Sunday, so that will be good. Unless, of course, my temp jumps way up tomorrow and I am totally pg! 

 

Reproductive thoughts!

Brichole - HEY AUNT FLO!  IF YOU  DON'T SHOW UP IN BRICHOLE'S LIFE IN THENEXT FEW WEEKS THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY.  I MEAN IT!  I KNOW A GUY!  AND HIS NAME'S SOPRANO IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!  SO GET OVER THERE!  NOW!!!  p.s. STAY AWAY FROM MY HOUSE!

 

Slimkins - fertilityfriend.com is supereasy to use and they have a free charting course which will give you all the basics of charting.  The basic membership is free and all you need.  I think it's really nice to chart.  It makes me feel in control of something I essentially have no control over. 

 

AtoE - Hopefully your temps jump back up.  Since my chart's looking so sad, I went searching fertility friend's charts and I actually found a number of charts (actually most) with a few dips before the BFP.  It seems most charts don't really go triphasic or anything resembling that until 15ish dpo.  Fingers crossed for you....

 

Gemime - You look great!  That steady climb is great.  Wow, I guess the lp is a blessing and a curse.  It gives a bean a long time to settle in, but it gives you a long wait...

 

Mummoth - Your temps are much higher than last months.  Looks good!!!  Good luck!!! 

 

TalktoMeNow - Don't worry about today's drop.  It's still early in your cycle.  Let's hope for a jump tomorrow.  I seriously don't tell anyone while ttc.  People say the stupidest things. 

 

AFM - My temps dropped today.   I wish they would just go one way or the other so I would have some sort of clue.  http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/21b89c   So, once again, I'll know more tomorrow.   I was pretty down until I searched fertilityfriend chart gallery.  I noticed many, many of the pg charts went up and down alot before settling into a better pg chart. 

 

So, there's still hope for us all.  Good luck all.

 Thank you :)  It's a really big decision and that is why i'm taking my time.  I know that there is plenty of it!!!  I think i'm going to take my mom with me when I go because I need a non-bias opinion when I talk to the doctor and DH is just selfish when it comes to "the girls"!!!! LOL  And you're right he will learn to deal ha...i know he's never seen me with smaller boobs...but at least i'll finally be able to buy a bra that doesn't cost me an arm and a leg!!!  YAY for that!!!

You are awesome!!! I really hope that works lol.  I am just ready to have my fertility back so that I can start planning our next one for september starting to TTC again!!!  I want to practice charting and it's not going to do much good unless i have a true starting day!!! Granted it would be fun just to see the chart that I would have now but I couldn't compare the next month to the chart i would start now.  I hope that the witch stays away from you...but if she doesn't this month hopefully next month will work out better!!! Late november/early december babies aren't too bad to have either!!! I'm so afraid that we will end up pregnant again by the end of next month though and if that's the case then all three of our children would have December birthdays!!! I would be so crazy with trying to do birthdays and Christmas. Plus DH's birthday is at the very end of November too so there are already 3 birthdays in my house there back to back!!!

Gemmine and Xerxella-  since we haven't really been actively trying to get pregnant more than just this cycle (and this one we didn't try real hard winky.gif), I might hold off a little longer. I am just SO impressed with the dedication and the knowledge that you all hold. It makes total sense about the control part.

 

Mummoth, that is kind of what I was hoping for, but I am definitely not holding my breath. heh!

 

Brichole1214, I think comfort is a huge deal. Especially, comfort from back pain. During your consultation maybe find out how the reduction would be affected by future pregnancies and breastfeeding. And I'm an A, so, I think a D is pretty big. :)

Thanks girls... not an implantation dip, unfortunately. I was hoping it was... but at this point, I am just hoping my LP makes it to 10 days and she doesn't come today. :(

post #106 of 119

I had a nice time with the teens yesterday, capped off the night with a visit from Spicy, then couldn't sleep! It was probably the caffeine. I know better but... Anyway, I have a donor lined up for this afternoon, hopefully it doesn't get tabled. My OPK this morning is negative, but there's some color now, so it could pop at anytime, and I want a good supply of swimmers in there when it happens!

 

Everybody think Fertile Thoughts!

 

Attached2Elijah...   I hope your LP pulls through for you!

post #107 of 119

Stevi: I hope that you get plenty of BD's in this week!!! And I hope that OPK just gets darker and darker :)  We need a sticky bean for you for March!!!!!

 

Attached2Elijah:  I too hope that your LP sticks it out for you!!!

 

Slimkins:  Thank you for reminding me to ask about later pregnancies and breastfeeding!!! I totally would of forgotten!  One of my friends I went to high school with had it done not long after her first child was born and she's now pregnant with her third child!!! I think she told me that her doctor only allows her to gain a max of 15lbs per pregnancy and it's a 50/50 shot if you can breastfeed after having the procedure done...but i want to see what the doctor i'm going to says about it!!!  I really hope that they will do it and then allow me to get pregnant again because I don't think i can handle another pregnancy AND my breasts being as big as they are right now!!!!  I really think that i'm going to go with a large C cup  because the more I think about it the more I know I DO want another baby and that would give me a little room to grow when I do get pregnant without having to go up anymore than I am now.  (I got up to an F while i was pregnant with Emma!!!)  I'm just ready to feel better not just about my self but in general.  I ache all of the time and I think that the headaches I get lately have been from the strain of carrying these bad girls around...i just wish they would GO AWAY!!! Some people think that I can just exercise and they will go away but nope...the first place i lose is in my tummy and I NEVER lose in my chest!!! If anything they usually get bigger when I'm working out...so crossing my fingers that I get this approved through insurance and we can get the ball rolling.  it would be nice to be able to move into my new house a "new woman" lol.

A2E, still rooting for you.

 

Nothing exciting on my chart. Temp still down, but not any lower than yesterday... a tiny bit higher. Guess I'll just keeping waiting....

Mummoth, your chart is awesome!  When are you testing...?  I can't wait!

post #110 of 119

Well my temps are back up today to a new high so I had to test.  I'm pretty sure it was negative.  I think I saw a shadow, but I'm using those blue plus sign ones (Clearblue Easy) which have a real bad reputation for evap lines.  (They were free from a friend.)  So, we'll see what tomorrow brings.  Praying for temps to stay up and maybe tomorrow's test will be a crystal clear positive. 

 

Good luck all!!!!

 

ETA - Those clearblue easy tests are just EVIL!!!!  So, 6 hours later I look at the test and of course now it looks clearly positive.  And, then I read the directions and realized I checked after 2 minutes and the directions say check after 3 minutes.  I didn't come back to it because the kids were up....  But, of course, I have heard all about those horrid evap lines.  I also realize it's now been 6 hours since I last peed, too, sooooo  I took another test.  I took the dollar store New Choice brand.  Clearly negative...  So, I know nothing.  But, I guess I would've known nothing if I hadn't tested either....

Brichole: Keep us posted on the process!

slimkins: Ok well let us know when you start it up so we can stalk you!

Stevi: I hope it goes well this month!

 

Cycle Buddies

A2E: Do you normally cramp right before AF? I didn't see cramps on your symptoms on the chart so my fingers are crossed for you!

Mummoth: Temps still high I see! Stalking you!

T2MN: Don't you hate the chart limbo?! I do.

 

AFM: Temp still high, climbed a tiny bit this morning but I missed my alarm so I temped at 6:55 instead of 6:00. Not sure how big of a diff that is, but whatevs. I'm 10DPO today still waiting for 12DPO since that's when my temp dropped last month. T2MN, room for 2 in chart limbo?

Usually like a few hours before she gets here which I haven't had today... Honestly, I don't feel like she's coming at all so I'm hoping for the best. I did have a nice overlay with a pregnancy chart that looked almost exactly like mine this morning which gave me a bit of hope but I doubt THAT will happen but if I can make it until tomorrow morning (or even 2 more days) I would be happy. I don't understand why my LP would be getting shorter though. :-\

post #113 of 119

Hi, ladies!  Just checking in to say hello and give you an update.  I'm on CD14 and got a positive OPK today!  It looks like after only ONE acupuncture treatment so far, I'm going to O 5-6 days early!  

 

I want to show you, though, the difference between the expensive digital OPK and the IC:

It makes me wonder how much stress I could have spared by splurging on the digitals months ago!  People sure weren't kidding when they said the digitals are the way to go.

post #114 of 119

Wow! That is definitely proof of cheap isn't always best! I have never used internet cheapies, I use Answer.

post #115 of 119

MommyMat: WOOHOO for an early O! Ohhh I've got my FX for you! That difference is crazy... I wonder how many women think they may not be ovulating because of those strips. 

 

 

 

Stevi: Woohoo for lots of donors! That's great... hope it works for you this month. It's darn near time to kick you out of here, I can feel it! Hope that eggie pops out with lots of willing and able swimmers right where they need to be! 

 

 

AFM: Still no AF so I think I'm going to make it to at least 10 dpo.... although I still have that slim hope that tomorrow my temp will jump back up and then jump even further in a few days... I did find an amazing  pregnancy overlay chart that I have to share because it gives me hope.... even if it is false hope. This is a short LP chart as well. Me = purple.

A2E~ Whoa! Those are really close!!! 

 

MommyM~ Glad to see you're getting your money's worth!

 

Stevi~ sounds like a fun day with the kids! Hope your night was productive :D

 

Xerxella~ I hope the shadow you saw was a hint of things to come!

 

Gemmine~ I'm stalking you right back! :p Your temps are getting up high!

 

AFM~ I'll be 12 DPO on Thursday, I'll probably give a test a go then... Ff is telling me not to test until Saturday, but I usually start spotting by 11DPO, and I'll be 12 on Thursday so I won't be able to resist if there's no sign of impending AF. My big news for today: we just signed a rental agreement!! We're moving from a 2 bedroom/den in a four-plex to a 3 bedroom/rec-room house!! We have a whole house! There's even a carport for SO. It's got a nice big kitchen and tons of storage (something we have NONE of now) The yard is huge!! We get the keys on March 21st.

I'll have to check those out, too!  thumb.gif
