Trying to Conceive #2 - Page 45
Well, the insanity stopped, AF is coming I think. Oh well, at least I can enjoy a few adult beverages this weekend when the in-laws are in town. I'll need it! That was a rather short cycle though, 24 days...
SO GISdiva- was it aunt flo?
Jpack- sorry to hear about the false hope. I seem to just do that to myself- take a test and scrutinize it in all sorts of light trying to see if there is a faint ANYTHING! LOL Good luck this next cycle.
AFM- This cycle I did nothing, absolutely nothing, only bd'd when it probably wasn't even the right time (hubby was out of town for "perfect timing). Awaiting AF. I have the cramps and the usual but I don't think I am due to start for another day or so...whatever. There is a glimmer of hope in the back of my mind but really I know I'm out this month. It just would be funny if it did happen this month. We'll see.
I didn't realize how much I'd forgotten after not thinking about conceiving for five years. I feel like a newbie all over again, I'm sure glad I have all you ladies to remind me about mucus and cervix position and all that good stuff...
2 week wait starts today, I think we timed it pretty well!

How is everyone doing? This thread got so quiet it dropped off my news feed!
I am on month 2 of Vitex and month 1 of Maca. Had really good strong O pains this month and am now 4DPO. Will test at 14 DPO, so just waiting waiting now!
I started Maca this month too, and I'm trying to get my husband to take some too without *too* much nagging. ;) Waiting to O, otherwise...
Funny story - I was at a party thrown by an acquaintance of mine (so not close enough of a friend to know we're trying for another). The topic in the room tumbled to children and spacing. One mom had two that were a year and two days apart and said how great it was now that they're older, my friend has two that are about 3 years apart and said how it was juuuust a little too much and she "had a friend who had theirs five years apart and it was a NIGHTMARE situation!". Um...yeah. That nightmare you're disparaging is exactly what we're signing up for, thanks. I kept my mouth shut...sometimes I can't, but this time I did. ;)
For what it's worth, my brother and I are 5.5 years apart. We got along fabulously when we were children, not at all when we were teenagers, and again good now that we're adults. And frankly, I don't think the age gap was the issue when we were teenagers - it was just that we were, well, teenagers!
Gratefulstella- YAY!!!!! So happy for you!!! Big congrats, and I will be sending lots of positive thoughts to you for a healthy 9 months!
Oh yes, I remember those days so very well! It was very scary every time I went to the bathroom. Also, just remember that if you ever see any spotting that can be very normal! With my two healthy pregnancies, I still had some spotting. I'm glad I was able to give you some hope - I am just so thrilled for you!!!
Good luck to the rest of you TTC!
