YAAAAAY For Sonja!!! I am so happy for your BFP
AFM Yes I did O on my CD 15 YAY and so I am 3 dpo and I gotta say I feel sooooo good about this month!! ... TMI ALERT... Yesterday I went to the restroom... and I had a little blood when I wiped... but that was it... nothing else only that 1 wipe.. I kept wiping and nothing!! and then this morning my temp was up !! Maybe all this tired and crabby is a little bean . and this crying UGH I must stop crying at everything...
I feel like my baby is growing in me.. I REALLY do!!!
I am adding a picture of my new puppy ... He is so cute My little Prince Henry
Happy Valentines Ladies and Thank You so much for being here for me!! I am so happy I have this forum!!
Miss Sonja, you have a BFP!!! I don't think first morning urine is necessary a week after AF is due....at all....YAY!!!!!
Sending sticky bean wishes
And Shell, first of all I WOW that's in one cutey pie sweetie looking puppy!! Congratulations!!!!! Second of all those symptoms sound promising. Sticky bean wishes to you, too!!
I agree ... If I get a BFP even a faint one I will be jumping from the rooftops with joy! lol and testing everyday till my Doctors appt. when i hear that little heart beat. ( I too have dug in the trash LOL)
well My temp's keep rising.. and I am cramping a bit... I cant wait until my sono appointment in March!! I hope I have a little bean that I can see
Sonja, I am so excited for you ... Yes little Prince Henry is a toy .. he will probably get about 5 lbs max , he is such a sweet little guy also he loves to cuddle and wants me to carry him everywhere... I love the attention from him, its a great disstraction.
Congratulations Miss Sonja. How exciting!
Shell - is that you in your profile pic? If it is, you look really young, and beautiful.
AFM, I think I might ovulate soon, and my DH and I have been pretty amorous lately. So maybe I'll get lucky this month, but I'm not going to think about it too much.
It's great to see others getting bfp's.
My Temp dropped I went from 97.89 to 97.84 ... I think... I wish I would have looked closer yesterday at the numbers with digital the 9 and 4 look alike unless you look closely ... So either my temp stayed the same or dropped.. and I am having cramping in my right side, bad headache, and a little break out, my BB's are a little sensitive. its not that big of a drop but it really has me upset.. maybe its not my month.
Gumblossom , that pic was taken hmmm about 10 years ago for a hair show. I just like it.. I will put up a more current one Good Luck on your Ovulation!!!
Thank you... That definatley makes me feel better... now I shall stalk BFP charts LOL !! I think I am going to wait till Next Saturday to test, because I will only be 7 dpo tomorrow and if I get a bfn I will be so upset And me and Dh have our late Valentines date tomorrow night so I dont want to be a bummer and ruin it by being all depressed.
I am so sorry about your DD poor thing , dehydration is no fun!! I hope she gets better soon. I am having my DD watch the puppy in her room tonight so i can get some sleep, I swear its like having a new born baby, they wake up every 4 hours and need to go potty and eat... I am just tired and so crabby I dont even want to be around myself lol. maybe some sleep will do me good.
Sherry, I hope your DD feels better soon! My DD suffered from dehydration during a camping trip once, very scary! A peanut butter craving sounds like a need for protein maybe?
Shell, sweet puppy! Have you tried having him sleep with a ticking clock? That worked for a puppy I had once... it's supposed to create a womb-like feeling of comfort for the pups (ticking clock / heartbeat).
WaturMama, you asked a while back about how others are enjoying their polenta... I use it as a base for anything saucy (bolognese, stews, curries, etc.), and one of my favorite ways is to pan-fry thick slices of it and then top with pesto and roasted veggies. I've been making pestos out of all sorts of leafy greens (kale, arugula, etc.) and they're delicious on the polenta. (I imagine there's a way to omit the parmesan from the pesto if you're going dairy free). It's also great for breakfast with eggs. I'm curious about your giving up dairy? I've felt a little confused about this all along. I know Randine Lewis (and my TCM person) do recommend giving up dairy because it can be inflammatory, but my understanding has been that if it's raw or cultured/fermented, it's okay. My nutritionist recommended 1 serving (no more) per day based on this.
AFM, weird cycle. I had eggwhite during and immediately following AF! I wasn't worried about it (and my TCM person thought it could be a leftover mucous plug dissolving) and although we are actually avoiding conception this cycle, we were having unprotected just-for-fun BD, thinking we had a week. Then... my temp shot up on CD8. My chart looks luteal even though I'm only on CD 10. I guess I won't really know until a different pattern emerges or AF arrives. And if we do conceive... well, here's hoping my folic acid stores have been replenished!
