Hi all. Hope to hear of some BFPs this week! I do have a couple of questions for you:

 

1) Is there anyone that should be moved to "Graduates" that I missed? I know we're getting near the end of the months & I feel like we've had some BFPs in the mix this month.

 

2) Is anyone interested in taking over the the maintenance of this thread? I'm ending my first trimester this week (it's gone fast, I know), and I feel like it's the time to pass the torch onto someone who can devote more time to it. It's a very simple process, so let me know if you're interested & I'll PM you the instructions. 

 

Hope you all have a wonderful and fertile week!

Can I be moved to waiting to know? I should be getting my temp spike tomorrow. Been good about BD'ing at strategic times so maybe this month...

post #8 of 83

PLEASE ADD Me TO WAITING TO KNOW.

 

This may be the most difficult TWW I have ever known.

We are officially on a timeline.  Both of us in our 40's and after yet another loss, we set the clock.  

Only a few more tries left.

 

BABY DUST to you lovely ladies.

 

PEACE.

post #9 of 83

maydaymom10 - thank you for maintaining this thread!

 

studyingstones - yeay! Glad one of our regular posters is up for the task! Thanks! :)

 

Can you please move me to waiting to know? (And I hope I never have to post that again!)

post #10 of 83

Can someone tell me how to post a link to my chart on ff? That feels like a really stupid question, but my chart only pops up and isn't on its own page - so what link do I post to show you my chart?

post #11 of 83

Hi all. MayDay, happy pregnancy! Thanks for the thread keeping.

 

Skee, may I ask why only a few more tries? Are you using special measures, or do you just want to be off the roller coaster? I hope this is your month!

 

I am starting to be crazy lady. I am probably 2-5 DPO only, and I had some nausea today. I KNOW it is in my head, but I am officially on a symptom watch, I guess. This is the first month in a long time where I feel like I really want to be preggers. I embrace the opportunity and welcome the little soul that may want to come through us. Come on, baby! I have had some twinges, sort of light light cramps and and excited feeling.

 

I am committing to walking for a half hour a day and making good food choices.

 

That being said, I am still feeling balanced and relatively unattached about it happening THIS MONTH. I know it will happen when it happens, and it is good to be able to welcome it. I am not aching for a baby, just feeling receptive.

 

Love and dust to all you ladies! May it be a short stay and long healthy productive pregnancies to all!

post #12 of 83

This may sound funny after my last, really cheerful post, but....

 

Is anyone else afraid of morning sickness? I have some real issues around nausea, and it was rough for me with my DD (now 4 yo). I was sick until about the 14th week, and I was very depressed and let myself sort of shut down. I know every pregnancy is different, but... I just don't have the space in my life to shut down this time around. I have a DD who needs to be up early for preschool, with lunches made and breakfast fed, etc. I have a few part-time projects that I am very committed to, at least my work is flexible, but I have duties, etc. And I know that if I lay around and turn into mush, it sets a bad tone for my whole pregnancy as far as weight gain and my back health go.

 

So, are any of you afraid of morning sickness too? Any emetaphobic (phobic about throwing up) people out there? I have been working on it in therapy, and my therapist gave me a helpful perspective... Here it is: I hate being sick because I don't like to lose control or be incapacitated. I don't like being sick, germs, etc, because I don't know the exact cause and how long it will last, ie.e, ho long I will be out of control. But with pregnancy, it is actually a good sign, it is discomfort that serves a purpose, and even when I am feeling yucky, I can feel comforted that it is part of an amazing thing.

 

Sometimes that is comforting. Not sure how comforting it is right now, when I am not feeling entirely well and it may be a condition that is with me for months... Each month we have tried, any time I have an upset stomach, I immediately felt like, "oh no, please don't let me be pregnant." Even though I actually DO want it. This time I actually am still welcoming the pregnancy, but I am a bit terrified. uhoh3.gif

 

Even after I worked through my birth trauma with DD, and I no longer felt afraid of pain and disfigurement, I still find the prospect of morning sickness daunting. 

 

Sorry for the long post. It helps to put this all down in writing, for some perspective. help.gif Thanks for listening, if you got this far.

Dakipode, Fingers crossed for you that this is your month!

 

Skeemama, Baby dust to you, I hope you get your BFP!

 

Sweetmama, When you are signed in to FF, go to the "Sharing" drop down menu, and under "Charting Home Page", click Setup - this will give you a link to share your chart. HTH!

 

Anyalily, Wishing you strength and peace of mind during this 2WW!  I share your fears of vomitting.  I've lived with IBS all my life that gives me tremendous nausea and upset stomach.   I've always been able to keep myself from vomiting (although some days I'm sure it would make me feel better), so when I was pregnant I was so very afraid that my symptoms would worsen and I wouldn't be able to keep myself from vomiting.  Soda crackers and peppermint candies helped me tremendously.  Would you consider any anti-vomiting meds like Dialectin? (sp?)  I've heard good things about them, though I'm not sure I'd be comfortable enough to try them. 

 

AFM, nothing new here, just hanging out in Waiting to O land.

post #15 of 83

Well, my "being zen" this cycle and not thinking about it much seems to have been mostly related to the fact that I was just hanging out waiting to O, haha. Still am just waiting to O, but now it's BD time (likely will O tomorrow), and I'm obsessing about whether we should be BDing every day or not (we are, and tonight will be three in a row), whether I have the right quality CM, etc. Hopefully I'm just having "a moment" and will be more relaxed during my TWW. My temps have been more normal this cycle leading up to O, so I am hoping there will be a very clear O date this time, and that I will not have the anxiety/stress that I had last month related to O'ing 3 days later than normal and wondering why I wasn't getting a BFP yet. Sigh. REALLY hoping this works this cycle. faint.gif

post #16 of 83

Hi ladies!! TTC#3 here, on cycle 2.

 

lenny1027, Trying to take a zen approach myself. But, I think just being on MDC is kindof contrary to zen! At least the less I am on, the less obsessive I am! I am in the 2WW, maybe around 6-7 dpo (not charting temps, just cm). Trying not to assume any symptom I have is pregnancy! Trying to take it easy too!

 

Good luck! Waiting to see some BFPs here!! (how come there are so few on this thread, compared to the number of ladies in the DDCs? :))

Can't relate to being afraid of morning sickness but I have some fears around pain and disfigurement. I have a very large scar that runs vertically from my pubic bone to 3" above my bellybutton and I worry whether it will stretch enough, whether it will hurt etc. I've had two different Dr.s tell me that it should be fine... I get you though, that "Oh no, maybe I don't want to be pregnant, I'm not sure my body can do this". I wonder how much that is affecting my body subconsciously and its "willingness" to get pregnant.

I hope you get a breakthrough in dealing with this. The lack of control is certainly a fear I can relate to. hug2.gif

 

skeemama: I hope you get the BFP you're looking for. Dealing with a deadline, whether real or imaginary, is certainly stressful.

 

sweetmama: LOL!

 

lenny and porcelina: yes, when I'm waiting to O I feel much more zen than when I'm in 2WW and staying off the boards helps. Of course I've been pretty obsessed with being here lately...

 

Happy BD'ing everyone!

post #18 of 83

Anyalily - I typed a big response and it disappeared - UGH. I'm extremely phobic as well, but have developed coping skills to help me through. My phobia was truly disabling at one point in my life. It can still try to get there, but I refuse to let it run my life anymore! Message me sometime if you want to chat in more detail....

 

....and what am I missing here? Not sure what I said that was funny! confused.gif Maybe you're getting a kick out of my not knowing how to post my chart? smile.gif

post #19 of 83

StudyingStones, sorry to hear you have had similar struggles. Ironically, I now know it is not the throwing up that I am afraid of, it is the feeling of being nauseated and not knowing if it will improve or lead to throwing up, and the feeling of not being able to do anything while I feel like that. And, yes, I would consider medication if I was comfortable with the side effects and was unable to function without it. It seems like the side effects of antinausea meds are often a stomachache like indigestion or constipation. I will read about dialectin, (sp)?

 

Dakipode, I think that feeling can really influence things. I think my ambivalence in past months is why we didn't catch an egg. I looked back at my calendar and it seems like I have a 12 day luteal phase. And just 4.5 years ago, I got pg on the second try. I know my body can do this, it is my brain that has been holding me back. I hope you find peace about your worries with your scar. I would trust the doctors, and maybe start a daily oil massage now. Maybe it would help you loosen up both physically and emotionally.

 

Lenny, IKWYM! Hanging out hear increases the obsession for me too. But none of my friends want to hear about TTC. They all just had a baby, or are about to give birth, or really don't want a pregnancy right now (or ever.) And DH thinks I'm a little crazy. No one else TTC.

 

Porcelina, indeed, where are all the TTC ladies? Come on out, lurkers!

 

AFM, possible symptoms of the day. 1. My decaf was unappetizing, usually the highlight of my morning. 2. I went to the local drugstore to pick up HPTs so I can POAS in a few days, and got a birthday card for DH who turns 43 tomorrow. One of the cards made me choke up! I almost cried over a birthday card that said "I'm so glad your my dad." (I had to get one for DD to give him, too.)

 

So, I think I could be 7 DPO, based on the day we DTD and I had a little cramping right after. Do any of you test on 8 DPO? I was thinking of trying tomorrow on DH's bday. With DD, I didn't test positive until I was a few days late.
