Fille  Congrats on the insem. Best wishes in the TWW. 


Friederikejoy.gif YEAH !! joy.gifYEAHjoy.gif YEAHjoy.gif YEAAAAAAAHHH!!!! joy.gif Very happy news! Congrats!!



Darcy So sorry to hear of the impending AF. You all sure gave it a good shot! I can understand wanting to take a little hiatus. Enjoy the time off and start up again when you and DP (and your wallet) are refreshed.


AFM, No real news to report. I truly have no obvious pregnancy symptoms. My breasts were pretty sore the last 2 days but they feel quite fine now. I am attributing that to the trigger. Hopefully the trigger will be all gone this evening, 8 dpo. I ordered some cheap but sensitive sticks off the www. If they come today I may POAS just to see that the trigger is indeed gone. I got a text from a colleague Monday showing me the picture of her 13 week US....twins! I am very happy for her but of course being human I am a little jealous.

Fille  Congrats on the insem &b est wishes in the TWW!  The link you posted is just to a thumbnail version of your chart linked at mothering -- if you want to post the whole link, I'll attach it to the chart icon that I added next to your name.  It would be lovely if you'd like to thread keep this coming month.  :-)



Friederike: Sounds like you guys had a stressful night last night -- babies don't really need that much stuff.  With gifts, thrift stores and consignment, you can really get a bundle of stuff for very little money.  I have nearly everything I will need and I think I've spent about 200.00.  People also tend to loan out or give away lots of stuff for free -- just put the word out.  Usually, once they are done having kids, they are more than eager to de-clutter.

fille How was the rest of your birthday? Did you have a nice celebration?

KWPX just one week to go. Fingers crossed for good symptoms.

Jenny just 200? For real? I am impressed. We had almost ten times that sum and that is already buying loads of things used. The jogging stroller / bike trailer that we want (Chariot) alone goes for 400€ used. Add carseat (new), a diaper stash and carriers, plus adoption fees and it just adds up. I hope we get some free stuff. None of our friends have children though. Okay one does, but he lives in Finland. Two of my siblings have children, my sister is due with her third in June, so maybe they'll lent me some things like clothes. We'll see. It is too early anyway to go on a shopping spree. Right now I am still amazed that I am actually preggo.

Darn it. I tested the link in the preview and everything!

Does this work? My Ovulation Chart
post #148 of 170
Friederike, thanks for asking. I did have a great birthday beyond the try at babymaking. It was a beautiful day--one of the very first warm and sunny spring days here, and I took the afternoon off work. I did this mostly so I could insem as soon as my package arrived without having to rush back to work, but it meant I had a chill afternoon watching Netflix with my hips raised. First, I walked home from work through downtown in the sunshine, bought a book I've been wanting to read at one of our local bookstores, and immensely enjoyed feeling free and warm! Then in the evening, I went on a mini roadtrip with a couple of friends (just to Burlington, about 45 mins from us) to a Queer Trivia night and dinner out. It was really fun.

In other news, I'm very perplexed by my body. Even though I didn't get a positive OPK until Tuesday, my guess looking at my temps would be that I had O'd on Monday (which would mean a 26 day cycle-it's only been that short twice before in the 4 years I've been tracking)--or that I actually haven't O'd yet. So, yeah, that's fun (in the "not fun at all, what the hell" sense of the term).
post #149 of 170
Fille - your chart is confusing, but maybe the warmer weather threw things off? For me, when it got warmer this month, I got lower temps because I started sleeping without a blanket. I hope the next days clear it up for you.

Liz - wow thats a lot of dancing veggies. Thank you! How is that wacky cycle of yours going? Did you finally O?

afm -
I am still scared that our hopes will be crushed, because I have pretty constant pains and some brownish spotting since yesterday. But it isn't getting worse, not like really bleeding and the pains get less if I stay in bed. So I canceled work yesterday and won't attend a conference I had signed up today and stay on the couch until monday.

I know there's been some chatter about how light the traffic is on this thread smile.gif just wanted to say I'm lurking along! I had to upgrade my browser and can't update my sig for some reason - but we haven't started yet - having some great important conversations before we settle into quest for parenthood. Wishing everyone much luck with their conceiving adventures!
post #151 of 170

Lizbian, I'm doing better now! Had sooo much going on! Things are settling down again now. Looking for another job and enjoying the little break and all the time I get to spend with DP. Sorry if this time is stressful for you with everything…it'll get better. 


KWPX2, I've finally gotten over the worst part of mye cold/allergies. I have just the slightest cough, but compared to how I was feeling before its much better.


Friederike,  I am so glad you got your BFP. Congrats!!!joy.gifbroc1.gifenergy.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gif


Fille, glad that your back on and that your birthday was saved. I'll keep it all crossed for you!


AFM, well considering the sacking..i lost mye primary insurance coverage..but there's still silver lining as I'm still covered under Mums until 26…and 25 is less than 2 months away. We've got to get a move on. Also, with the lack of funding help on mye part I proposed the idea of the KDR to DP and she was pretty receptive. I'm more than confident we can do it on our own, and who know's..we may get lucky on the first try with fresh! I wish everyone the best of luck with everything and promise to stop being so distant. You would think with all this time on mye hands I'd be on here all day! I've actually done MAJOR spring cleaning and have just the gym and one closed to clean out now and I'll be done! Something accomplished lol

post #152 of 170
Okay, the cramping I've had since last weekend has just turned into heavy AF like pain and the spotting into real bleeding. I am fairly sure, we're loosing the pregnancy.
post #153 of 170
Oh Friederike I'm so sorry - I hope that isn't the case greensad.gif
post #154 of 170

Oh no, Friederike. hug2.gif I'm so sorry. Take good care of yourself.

fille yep it works smile.gif I'm really glad you had a nice birthday & FX it turns into something better.


friederike Nooo I really hope it's not so.


chortles good that you're talking about things & hope you'll know the right time to try.e


fmorris glad you're enjoying the time off & spring cleaning is a very productive thing to be doing.

post #157 of 170
Friederike, while I do not want to give you false hope, I am just dropping in to say that my wife had bleeding at 5-6 weeks that ended us in the ER, and we were sure the pregnancy was over. But they found a heartbeat, and everything turned out ok. I truly hope that is the direction you are headed in. No matter what happens, take care of yourself in this difficult time. Sending my best.
