I went and created the Spring/Summer 2013 Pregnant Bajingo thread. I am looking for someone to take over this thread for May and beyond. It is pretty easy to start a new thread and connect it with the proceeding one. The initial transfer requires copying and pasting html to keep all the links working but after that it is just keeping up with who has had their baby and who gets pregnant and moves onto Bajingo Graduates thread. Anyone up to the challenge?

April Showers of Bajingo Juice - TTC #1 in our 30s April 2013 - Page 3post #41 of 654/11/13 at 3:59amThread Starterpost #42 of 654/16/13 at 2:08pmThread Starterpost #43 of 654/16/13 at 11:52pm
Again, I'm so happy for you! I'm sorry no one has offered to take over the thread yet. Right now I am so overwhelmed with work I'm reluctant to take anything else on, but I can carry the torch if needed. I just noticed that April 7 was both your anniversary of TTC and BFP date. What a special day.
I'm just waiting to O over here. My DH recently went to the doctor and everything checked out A-OK. Doctors could not find anything wrong with me, either. So, I'm just trying to keep the faith over here and thinking about seeing a reproductive endocrinologist. In the meantime I am trying to de-stress with meditation, yoga, tai chi, as I think that stress is delaying ovulation for me almost every cycle, and I have a feeling that's what's keeping me from getting pregnant (and maybe why I miscarried). I had coffee with a friend today and she got pregnant after the first month of trying--she is 39 and this is her first. Over the weekend I went to a baby shower, and next week I have a baby shower for two mamas-to-be in my dissertation support group. It's a challenge not to be envious. On the other hand, it is encouraging as these women are all well into their thirties and contend with the same kinds of school/work pressures I have.
post #44 of 654/18/13 at 1:53amCongratulations, Lilac, that's such wonderful news! I'm sorry I can't take over the thread, I'm still figuring out the whole online TTC community. On the one hand it's so nice to have other people thinking about the same things I am, but on the other hand it freaks me out a little--I find myself thinking that it seems like EVERYONE has fertility issues, and so of course I will too! So we'll see. Good news like yours, Lilac, helps to even it out!
AFM, hubby is back in London with part 1 of the visa issue solved (one more to go), and AF arrived four days after he did. So now it's just waiting to O. This will be our first real chance to conceive, so fingers crossed that I'm like your friend, Baileymarie, and get knocked up first try! That would be so awesome.post #45 of 654/18/13 at 3:52amThread Starter
faithrainbow, that is just fine. I want you to be comfortable in the online community and I think the ladies here will provide that. I am so glad that your DH is finally with you. Being married and apart would be so tough. To encourage you there are 3 or 4 ladies in our current list of pregnant Bajingos who got pregnant with one month of trying so it is totally doable! I hope your DH's sperm catches your egg this month!
bailey, I totally understand the envy. I see all these pregnant women around me and wonder why was her journey so easy to get pregnant? I have to remind myself that each person has a challenge they face. I am glad that you can find encouragement in the relationships you have and that you continue to have the hope that one day, hopefully soon, you will be the pregnant mommy to be!post #46 of 654/21/13 at 7:28amThread Starter
So a question for you ladies. I don't want to see the Bajingo thread end for lack of a thread starter. I have always been a history buff so keeping record of the wonderful ladies who have gone through this thread and onto having little ones has been fun. I have one private message of an individual who would be willing to take over the thread, but hasn't been a part of it before. I am willing to keep starting the monthly thread as long as seeing my signature won't cause any ladies here distress.
What is your pleasures ladies? Do you mind if I keep on thread starting or shall I let the lady who contacted me take over?
Hope this week has been a good one even with all the sad things that have been happening in our world.post #47 of 654/21/13 at 11:49ampost #48 of 654/21/13 at 12:19pmThread Starterpost #49 of 654/22/13 at 8:36ampost #50 of 654/22/13 at 2:20pmThread Starterpost #51 of 654/23/13 at 9:25amThread Starterpost #52 of 654/23/13 at 9:28ampost #53 of 654/23/13 at 10:14ampost #54 of 654/23/13 at 11:05ampost #55 of 654/23/13 at 11:56ampost #56 of 654/23/13 at 3:05pm
Lilac, I am crying (seriously) with happiness for you. That's amazing. Congrats!
So, I wanted to share a funny story with you guys. I am a children's librarian and manage the children's department of a medium-sized rural library. I don't have an office- my workspace is in the middle of the department, actually. And i have a plant on my desk that was a gift from a preschool class that I do storytime for once a month. So this patron comes in and she's a regular but usually goes to the adult department. She's about 60, a tiny, petite little thing and uber-religious. Fundamentalist Christian (not sure which denomination). I don't say that to be offensive or that it was a problem, but we definitely have different views of mens/womens roles in relationships (doesn't believe in divorce, men are ALWAYS right, woman's job is to care for her man, etc). She's very sweet and her husband passed a few months ago so she's quite lonely. She approaches me and asks if I am a mother. I said, "no, but I hope to be soon." She then asks how old I am and what my husband's name is. I'm not shy about those things so I told her both. She then starts telling all about her bout with infertility (took them 9 years to conceive their one child). I learned way more details than I ever needed to know (OMG- including positions tried). She kept telling me how I had to ask God for a baby or however many I want and eventually he'll send them to me. And how I had to show God I was ready for a baby by getting my nursery ready and reading to my uterus (not fetus- uterus). She actually gave me $2 for my baby fund. I couldn't convince her to take it back or that I couldn't possibly accept it. Then she comments on my desk plant and how she used to have one like it and how they root really well from a stem. I told her to go ahead and take a stem to root. She said she couldn't because it was library property and she never steals. I assured her it was my plant, not the library's and that it was a gift.
She takes her stem and then blesses the plant and ME with fertility.
It was so strange and surreal- she talked to me for about a half hour. But I actually felt blessed and have been calm about TTC ever since. I also need to find the right person/place to give that two dollars because it doesn't do me any good unless I can give to someone who actually needs it. Somehow my brain has linked those bills to me getting pregnant so the sooner I give them away, the sooner I will get my BFP.
On the factual side of things- I have no idea when I O'd or even if I have yet this month. Should have yesterday but I never had O pain and I always do. But I seem to have dried up. I guess I'll find out in a couple of weeks. :) Trying to let all the stress of TTC and counting days and everything just go away.
Hope everyone else is doing well and has as exciting of news as Lilac really soon!post #57 of 654/24/13 at 3:01amThread Starter
Librarygirl, that is crazy about the stories people tell. Maybe you can find a "March of Dimes" fund which helps fund research into birth defects and how to prevent them to add the $2 to . I think Walgreens or Riteaid has a little can by their register for that.
Thanks for the congratulations. Lots of dancing vegetables indeed. Seeing two tiny hearts beating on the ultrasound screen yesterday was a humbling experience knowing that I am growing those two little humans.post #58 of 654/25/13 at 7:51am
Haven't been by in a few days, but Lilac, holy smokes! How beautiful!!!! I am so happy for you!!
and every other joyful emoticon out there :)
I am sorry I can't take over the thread. Since I am +/- 20 cycles into the process and 1 year out from my pregnancy I really don't want to make the commitment to the group-- I want to move on. I don't know if there's a better way of saying it and please know that I love the support of everyone here. Thanks for offering, Librarygirl. I loved your story.
post #59 of 654/29/13 at 7:27amQuiet around here the past few days! Hope everyone is doing well.
I have been planting flowers like crazy and trying to enjoy the spring weather, rain including. Holding a container garden program for families at my library tonight! We love growing things around here!
Throwing my sister a bridal shower this weekend and my share of the preparations was not small. It's done now, at least. I can't wait for this wedding to be over.
Lets get some more spring BFPs around here!post #60 of 654/29/13 at 9:41amlibrarygirl, thanks for taking over the thread!
I'm in my first TWW. Unfortunately we ended up having to make a trans-continental flight on my probable day of ovulation, but we BD'd quite a bit beforehand, and as long as the flightt didn't scare that egg away, there should be a chance. Unfortunately with a 7 hour time difference, it seems unlikely that my temps will be able to tell me anything. So, I'm not holding my breath. But...you never know, right? Unfortunately, we'll be traveling again during my probable O-time next cycle, too! What sucky timing.
