chuord: I just looked up shabu-shabu and hot pot and zomg, what have you done to me woman! My mouth needs to get down with some nom-nom-nom on that as soon as humanly possible . And on the morse code AF! LOL! They sure do love to get all cryptic and weird whenever the hell they feel like now don't they! Listen up universe, chuord hears you on the O business and is just going to have a lot of hard-working fun so take it easy will ya! lol Oh, and my scratchiness seems to be more or less gone but DS1 is still coughing and such and he had a fever last night. DS2 seems ok mostly except for the bit of runny nose. Maybe it won't run rampant through the house?! Ooh, your weather sounds heavenly. I guess we're going to skip spring here (usually a lot hotter by now) and move straight to summer lol.
prescott: Yay! Glad you survived! Sounds like you had a lovely time despite all the hard work. I ran into an old friend/acquaintance of mine the other day at the farmer's market and she's due the same month I would have been. I was absolutely happy for her but it certainly stirred up my own emotions about my situation. I started to ask what her EDD was but then thought better of it; it wouldn't help me to do that to myself. I wanted to tell her that I should be having a baby then too but didn't want to put that on her. I don't know her fertility history so I don't know what it took to get her children but I'm certainly getting some first-hand experience on why pregnancy and birth loss is a "silent club". Anyway, we got started talking about a few different things and we're working on threads along similar paths so it will be cool to see any other reasons we were brought together now manifest themselves if they are to do so. But I get you though; it can be difficult to keep the "should haves" in perspective as we evaluate where we are in the present and how we feel about that. And yeah, I'm glad you ladies are here too! I can't see moving from this thread when I finally do get my BFP . Feeling your lucky/good feelings this month and hope this is it for you!
oasis: I'm so sorry about your loss. I'm glad you're feeling ready to jump back in though . This is one of only two threads I regularly post in 'cause I love the energy/space/support that's been created by these lovely ladies and it sure helps me when I'm lol. I totally get needing to cool out on things that are making life a lot more stressful though and I'm hoping your TTC nutty doesn't consume you again (< - - - anti-crazy vibes ). On your post m/c chart, I don't have a clue really there but would think your temps would be going nuts still. I haven't looked at all that many m/c charts in FF's gallery but the ones I have come across get pretty erratic. I just tracked cycle length and not temps during my m/c. Time will tell it though! I know, I know, yet more waiting . Too exciting right? lol On timing of BD, O-2 is supposed to be an ideal time for BD and a bit better than O-1 and O (though I can't recall stats). Did you have EWCF then or use a sperm-friendly lubricant? If that was in fact O and you had the right kind of environment going I'd say you're in it . Wishing you all the mellow you can handle this cycle and beyond darlin'!
JustJenny: How did the trigger go!
Matt's Mom: Reading in the sunshine is awesome and one of my favorite things to do! And I definitely understand your sushi "Hell no!" . I was there but it's seriously so, so, so good. Brings a tear to my eye . And wooooohoooooo! Glad AF brought her butt on! Hope she isn't being too wicked doll. Go get on that insemination info lady! lol
AFM, I'm with you prescott and I'm feeling really good about this cycle! We shall see . I'm certain I saw maca root at our farmer's market though so if this isn't it I'm going to add this root veggie in and see if that helps with my crazy hormones. Gotta look for some ways to prepare it though.
Ok, enough of my lollygagging and such, gotta make some food for the kiddos! Hope your day is or has been amazing lovelies!
