Aw...very sweet of you to offer to come with me...!! I'm hoping dh can make it. I was talking to someone on the wknd who had it done, and she said it was VERY painful for her...at first, she thought she'd want to see the x-ray, etc (she's a science grad) - but all she wanted to do when it was over was get the away from the person inflicting that pain...

Congrats to the two new BFPs!!

(and Karen, I forgive you )

I was coming on here to ask why I need to wait until 14dpo to test--I want to test tomorrow at 12dpo. Anyone have any thoughts?

This is especially hard because Karen and I o'ed on the same day and she got her BFP!!! So now I am doubly tempted to test tomorrow. I do have the sinking feeling in my stomach that it will be negative, but I need to know!!

Wow, congrats to all the BFP's!

I don't know why but I just POAS (I'm 11dpo). Negative. I don't know why I keep doing this. : I don't actually think I'm pregnanat at this point anyway, maybe I just want something to clarify that so I can just let go of the idea this month. I already feel a teensy bit of depression sinking in like I do each time AF shows up, so I'm going have to have to go easy on myself the next few days.

OK, totally ignorant question here but if AF does come I'm going to finally start charting, which I've never done, so where can I read up on how to do this properly without forking out for TCOYF (no $ right now)? And the basal body temp thermometer; is that something you can buy in a pharmacy?

Wow!!! Two more +++'s !?! Congrats Ladies.

I'm about to O and we aren't trying this month, but man, it's tempting with all the +++'s running around here. OK, we all know who to call when needing help resisting the hpt, but who can keep me from GIO? LOL

Just to clear up the confusion, it isn't *my* birthday (that was in Dec) it's Mike's! So -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BELOVED!!!!!

It's been a lovely birthday so far -- when I went in to bed last night he says, "It's been my birthday for eleven minutes..." and we had his birthday talk (that's where we go over the highlights of one's birthday; it's our birthday/ anniversary ritual) and he said the sweetest thing: "What stands out for me this year is how much you love me," and then went on and on about it, how he feels I love him more than he ever thought anyone ever would... That was nice to hear!

Then I figured it was time to break out his sexy birthday present A cute little red teddy with a thong that has flames on the front and says, "I'm on fire" on the back!!!! Tres cute, and it is symbolic, cause he often sings me that song, "Lady in Red" which always makes me wish I had more red in my closet!

Anyway... tonight I have more planned

Tara -- you're OK! Getting wasted one day isn't the end of the world! (And I agree with Shannon's OB-GYN based on the research I've heard).

Pamela and Karen

May you both have a full nine months of

Dani -- hmmmm... well, if your m/w needed to bring you into the hospital, couldn't she stay with you in a doula capacity? Have you talked to the m/w about it and asked how this is normally handled?

Sarah - in terms of your possible emotional backlash - give yourself space to feel what you're feeling now, and not worry about what you might feel later... deal with it moment to moment, if you can.

From my POV, I don't know that I could have gone back to work the day after. Looking back, I wish I had allowed myself to heal more before continuing my social life. I was an emotional/ hormonal wreak for a few weeks...

Adina Hope you are having fun with the showbiz life at least...

to those rebooting, : to those waiting to test and to you all!

Belly Blessings!

the only reason to wait would be to avoid a bfn from testing too early. i suppose.

im 10dpo today.

alexis, happy birthday to your beloved!

muse i got my bbt from the drug store or grocery store. it's a digital. can't remember where exactly because it's been so long. you could try finding the book at your library. otherwise, fertility friend has a lot of the same information online. good luck!

Oddly, the Queen of GIO can help I have one word for you: oral! (In other words, do everything but, and make sure you are both well pleasured!)



Weetzie -- every two days the HCG levels double. And for some women, they don't show up in time for a + on 12 dpo, even with an early response test... for some women the hormones show up + ridiculously early (Shannon!) Anyway, it's up to you how early you test, but the more conservative among us like to wait until AF is due, or the day after (so as to not waste unneccesary $ on tests).

muse -- you should be able to buy a basal therm at a pharmacy; that's where I got mine! And try looking for TCoYF at a library -- again, that's how I read it! (Alexis, Queen of the Cheap as well as Queen of GIO, Queen of TMI and Queen of Crotch Talk -- all these titles! Dang, my head must be so big to fit all those crowns! : )

Where is Korin this morning?????

Rose and Muse,
you can test early, but if you aren't charting, there could be some doubt as to when you actually o'd, so at this point, you might be 11 DPO, or maybe 10, or 9? so don't get dissappointed if its neg at this point.
good luck, and thanks for the congrats!
Pamela!!
post #91 of 499
LOL Alexis! I'm not worried about the pleasure issues, I'm just having trouble resisting the call of the EWCM!
post #92 of 499
Pamela!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness girl! And you were so down about ttc too!! Well, I am as thrilled as can be for you, hope to joing you soon too.

Yeah for Rose Angel!!!

May you both have a healthy 9 :girlpin :boypin
post #93 of 499

Cd 9

does anyone know if a chemical pregnancy could mess up my hormones for this month?
I don't know, its early, and I already have EWCM!! What the heck? At cd 9?
I am using the clear blue monitor, and it already says 'high'. Anyway, GIO'd just in case.

velvet - don't waste a good gio day

alexis, we dub thee "Queen of the Queens"
post #95 of 499
Ok. So I will test in the AM, but I have a question. How do you handle the disappointment? I am already cranky in anticipation of getting a negative. I don't want to be like this--how do you keep from getting upset and pissy? I need to be prepared

Sorry, weetzie, but I don't think you can...you will react however you react...don't fight it. I don't think a BFN has ever sat there on my counter without a big cry...snuggling back in bed with dh helps somewhat, but it doesn't change the BFN to a BFP...hopefully you will have a BFP staring back, and you will be jumping for joy!! :

Thanks. I am glad to know that I am not crazy if I cry. Ooooh I hope I will be jumping for joy, but I really just dont feel it. Oh well, hopefully bbt thermometer will arrive soon, and I can spend hours and hours staring at my chart. At least it will be a distraction, right?
post #98 of 499
it's completely normal. charts being a distraction depends on the user. i tend to obssess over mine but at least i know what's going kwim? like where in the 2ww i am.

btw, how'd you get your special name??
post #99 of 499
The ddddc?

I think it was given to me by tnrsmom after i stole Raven's pocketbook.

I didnt realize how loved it would make me feel until I got it! I love ddddcs!
post #100 of 499
