Hey Michelle, looks like we made the jump to the ddc togather!
Hi everyone, my name is Angela, Im 37, dh Charles is 32. We have Brandon, who will be 15 next month, Katie who was three in May and Todd who is 19 months. My period JUST came back last month and I started charting to get back in the habit of temping and to find my pattern. I never expect to catch the egg on the very first cycle. After dd, my first several cycles had very short luteal phases, so I figured that even if we caught the egg.... Not to mention that being my first pp cycle, it was erratic, I geared up to O twice before I actually did. In fact, I thought I HAD by CM and ff which is off and had my coverline too low, so my temps were all over the place and I coulnt tell a dip from a spike. Then I plugged my info into the ovusoft s/w and saw that my temps really did spike, but about four days later than what ff said. We had done the bd that morning (like four am, I know tmi) but thought we were past our chance but low and behold the next morning my temp spiked and here we are!! I tested + this morning, 11dpo and have already told dh, fil and the kids so it has to stick!
Im due april 21st so I'll be late april I guess with starbound!!
My mom is very unsupportive of us having another one so I have sworn everyone to secrecy. My oldest ds thinks I should tell her because she'll be mad that I kept it from her, but frankly I want as many peaceful months as I can get before I have to hear everyday why we shouldnt be doing this (and its not like we are destitute or my kids are deprived of anything they need or most of what they want!)
This is so awesome! I didnt know about the ddc before....I actually found mdc from the mothering magazines in my midwifes office. LOVE those!
I havent even schedule a prenatal apt. yet. I may have to go with an ob/gyn, although I have a new one that I like alot, but I have quite a list of questions for her. I used a midwife last time, but my insurance didnt pay,despite saying that they would, so I still actually owe them money and cannot afford to do it again. But am terrified of hospital "procedures" that I dont want, like vit K, hep B, etc.
So we shall see. Greetings everyone, Im so happy to be here!!!
Oh yeah, btw, MY bday is in april too!! (yeah, so I'll be 38 for the birth)
