DS1 - not charting but we were on our honeymoon (a fe months after getting married) so we DTD every day the week I O'd
DS2 4 days before O
DS3 3 days before O
Hope that helps!
Lou--Welcome to the TTW!! I feel like I have been here forever, but it has only been a week. ugh
Berry--Wow, 4 days before O?? That gives me hope. We DTD 1 day before O or 3 days before O (according to FF). I would love a girl to balance the hormones in my male dominate family, but either sex sounds great, obviously.
I was going to wait until tomorrow, but can't help share...
TMI, when I came home from work while changing I noticed yellow crusty stuff on the tips of my nipples...?I am finding a lot about this happening in pregnancy, even in early pregnancy. Is this a strong symptom or could it be something else other than pregnancy? I haven't heard anyone else mention this. I haven't breastfed for 4 years and don't remember seeing this stuff since then. I am only DPO 6-8.
Waiting to see if it was a fluke or if it persists tomorrow...
I'm sorry to see these BFNs BUT I know it's early for all of you so I'm sending lots of positive thoughts!!!
Jen--I also don't eat dairy and have lost about 12 lbs. just from the switch. As long as you are getting enough nutrients, are energized, and don't feel hungry, why does it matter what you weigh? I'm confused--does weight effect the sex of the baby? You said you might have a girl. I am very curious!
Ha, try telling that to certain members of my extended family. I've been big-time berated for not eating dairy and other things that I know make me sick. When my DS was a baby, I found out he was reacting to what I ate, so I went on an elimination diet and found out *I'm* sensitive to a bunch of stuff. When he weaned, I started eating it all again because I was a grown-up and by golly I didn't care that it made me feel like crap. But the pre-cancer last year was a wake-up call that I HAVE to watch it. So... fast forward to today, when I've got a BMI of 17.2 ... so I see why people around me are concerned but I feel SO MUCH BETTER when I don't eat the stuff I'm sensitive to. And I do feel like I've got the nutrients perfectly balanced (although I'm taking lots of supplements to do it.) And I feel better than I have in 10 years!!! I just need to figure out how to get more calories.
But to answer your question, I've heard the theory that the "low-everything" diet will produce more girls. Here is a link that might explain it well:
Which would be great -- I would LOVE love love another girl. (BUT wow! My son is a treasure! Boys are awesome!)
Isn't it great that we just CAN'T go wrong with this?! LOL
I had a traumatic experience with some very judgmental women in my Due Date Club for my son back in 2008. I left the forums and was really skeptical and nervous to join the TTC group this time around...
Yet, I am so glad that I did! Everyone is so caring, it is such a relief! I just want to say that I am so happy to be a part of this great group of ladies (oh boy, emotions are flowing). It is so nice to have others to relate to and share in this experience. I was feeling so alone before I joined without other girlfriends in my same boat. Thank you everyone for being wonderful! Love and baby dust to all!!
Expecting to O any day now. Warned the hubs and told him to up his vitamins LOL. My temps have been a bit weird, but since this is my first month temping who knows, maybe it's totally normal for me. This is only our third month of actively trying (and month 2 was a CP) but I am over with obsessing and just want my BFP already!
Well........late yesterday and today I got BFPs. Within the time limit, def not evaps, but still pretty faint looking. I envisioned announcing a bfp as something that I would be elated over but I'm more nervous than anything (which doesn't help I know! time for yoga!) I just remember with my last that by now I'd POAS and the line would show up immediately. This time by the two minutes you can see a faint line, and then it's even darker by the 10 min max, but I could be darker still. Knowing that there is a little one already dividing and growing I so want this cycle to turn out well, but it makes me nervous that the line is not darker at 13DPO.
Any thoughts? Are faint lines signs that this baby probably won't stick? Stories, opinions, and thoughts are welcome. TIA!
Berry Congrats!!! So happy for you! I can totally understand why you are nervous, but so far so good, right? I think Scjp is right, a have a friend that had a late BFP too, and everything was fine. I even got a BFN at 7-8 weeks with my son (after a BFN at 5 weeks and an ultrasound at 6 weeks) and they tried to send me home. Begged for another ultrasound and there he was..now he's 5.
Relax and go join the June Due Date Club--looks like it just opened today. Good timing
