YAY FOR YOU MEGAN!!!!
Justice2--you're going to have to throw a little obsessing my way in a couple of weeks, because I'm on pins and needles here on your behalf!!
I'm waiting anxiously and hoping you get a BFP!! I checked out the picture and it was too fuzzy to tell but I could see where there was something at least resembling a line.
RedOakMomma--are you feeling better? Crossing my fingers for you too! (oh, I'm in the desert, so no snow here. If you are getting jealous right now, keep in mind that if all this GIO works, I'll be waddling around hugely pregnant in 110 degree heat cursing my stupidity next summer!! Even if it doesn't work, it'll be hot as you-know-where!!)
allgirls--when are you expecting to O? I'm thinking it will be Fri or Sat for me most likely.
Oh, RedOakMomma again, in response to the thing about the superstitious things--funny you asked b/c I was wondering about something similar, but more general. Since nobody else responded yet I'll go first--every month even when not TTC I've looked up the potential due date if I got pregnant, and then checked to see what astrological sign the baby would be! This month the likelihood is end of Virgo/beginning of Libra . . . I can handle that! I haven't been trying for long enough to have any other superstitious things developed for the 2ww (yet!) but I have other more general ones. As we were getting ready to start trying I made a "baby altar" in the room where we do yoga/meditation (when we do, which is unfortunately not as often as we should!) And the night we decided to start trying, before we actually did anything my husband and I separately came to the conclusion that we should move that into the bedroom. So we ended up thoroughly cleaning the room, changing the sheets, putting on a new bedspread we'd never used before, rearranging the furniture, setting up the altar, etc. We lit a candle on the altar, I took an extra folic acid, and we began our babymaking adventures!! Not exactly typical foreplay I suppose, but it really did consecrate the moment and the decision for us.
The question I was going to ask was actually this: there are some schools of thought that what's going on at the moment of conception plays a part in shaping the character of the child. Does anyone here believe in that? And, does anyone (either intentionally or unconsciously) do things a little differently when it's "babymaking sex" for that reason?
