HeatherB: Please let me know if you would like me to move you to TWW.
post #82 of 574
dantesmama, Nvmama, yogachick, YAY! Congratulations!! It’s so great to see all these BFPs, so exciting! I’ll be following your pregnancies and waiting for those sweet babies to enter the world.

As for me, I’m at CD1 today. It’s okay, though, like I said in the last thread, I plan to just enjoy DD and keep nursing her without any worries and she and I will have plenty of time together, just the two of us. It’s all okay.

Rachel, I guess you can move me to “waiting to O” – it fits me the best, especially since we don’t have a category titled “waiting for DH to come back from his super-long business trip so we can start babydancing again.”

DH leaves on Thursday and I’ll miss him like crazy. This will be the longest we’ve been apart since DD was born. I bet DD is going to miss him and he’ll miss us too. Ah well, there’s no help for it, and when he gets back we can just go crazy.

And good luck to everyone else! Enjoy all that babydancing, if nothing else!!

Thanks for noticing! I will hang out in Waiting to O until I know for sure I did... Still not 100% sure, but hopeful that maybe we accidentally did what I was hoping we would do, and have some hope of a girl!

If I am pregnant, I will be very concerned about the effect on my milk supply. DD is very much NOT ready to wean.
welcome and good luck! the milk is a big issue for me as well. i'm hoping she will atleast continue comfort nursing and then go on to tandem.

So!?!?!? Did you retest? : (You'll get more dancing things when you feel sure about it! )

I've been feeling this way too. Don't get me wrong, I want a but it's okay for me right now if I don't.

How long will he be gone? That would be SO hard!! I hope it goes quickly and you both stay busy and as distracted from the separation as possible.

I think I may have actually o'd!!!

My temp spiked today to 98.1. No af yet and I only had a little bit of spotting. Af usually comes at cd 28 for me. Occasionally as late as cd30. I am cd 29 right now so :

I have already looked up when the baby would be due. I know, I am pathetic...

Congrats about the BFP NVmama and so sorry about the computer!

Sorry Oka-san about the hubby being gone. I would miss my hubby like crazy too.

Good luck to all the testers this am!

Here is my chart!

Safety while nursing and herbs. I like the kellymom.com source. I researched vitex there before I started it. The lady I got my info from is fully educated in naturopathy, and I really trust her judgement.

We've been away from DH for 3 weeks now. We've seen him a total of 5 days in those 3 weeks. Spaced out. He is in the city working and we are in the mountains. They are removing lead paint from our homes.

Here's my chart, it looks like a mess! http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/178574
post #88 of 574
Okay, I'm having mild cramps and spotting. My window to o just started yesterday and is supposed to go on until the 12th. I was going to start my o tests today. Should I eventhough this is going on? I'm a little disheartened. It's sooo wacky. :
post #89 of 574
Thanks RachelS and naturegirl for the hugs!!!

NVMama: I'm using $$ store cheapies right now. With dh laid off it is all we can afford right now!!!
post #90 of 574
OK so CD 38 here and I've been on and off REALLY crampy yesterday and today. I think AF is coming for a visit just as I suspected. I'm so sad!!!

Congrats Dantesmama and NVMama on your BFP's!!!!!!!!!

So sorry Oka-san that AF has found you. I like your very positive perspective!! Sorry that you DH will be away!

naturegirl: PLease let me know when you would like me to change you to TWW Good luck catching that eggie!!! Hurray for you!

Good luck sarahn4639!! I am so sorry.. I do not know much yet about reading the charts.

eastkygal: to you!! : tell that DH to come home for some BD! If you have the tests.... I would test so you do not regret later in your cycle not knowing... ykwim ... at least that is what I would do.

yogachick79 : Where are you??? Did you test?? :
post #92 of 574

Hmm, so my temps this cycle (on cd10) are very even. Which is odd for me since we've been trying. : that it's a good sign!

Erin -- no we are NOT sad....we are ready to start anew. we are ready to 'reboot" and catch the next egg. Both of us are having waky cycles now -- so we are gonna do this together -- I am on CD 2 -- we'll walk this cycle together.

1. we are going to enjoy the child we have
2. we are going to relish being part of the process of creating life -- being part of a mrical
3. we are going to turst that God, Goddess, or Chance will see to it we concieve another child at the perfect tiem for our family --
4. we are going to SMILE that we will not be going though L?D int eh hot hot summer next year -- yeah for fall
5. we are going to work our plans, eat healthy, and tryto be the best womb around for that feterlized eggie
6. we are NOT going to unduely stress beauce stress effects when we O -- and that stressed us out, wheihc effect O -- it is a bad cycle and we are not going to jump inot that spin cycle.....

Come on girl ----

I am off to teh store tomorrow to buy some herbs to try to "set the stage" as well as I can.

I bought O tests to see if I am Oing at all -- or is all this an exercize in sillness.

I am making a real effort on my diet.........

What are you working on Erin, what is your plan????

Rachel:Thanks for the hugs. I'm still hoping but being realistic too. I totally feel like I'm getting AF so basically I'm just hanging out waiting for her.

Aimee:Thank you SOOOOO much for your words of wisdom. You are totally right about being lucky to be a part of creating life and it's journey. We are lucky to be mommies to our dc too! All of your points are sooooooooooo on the money!!! Thanks for helping me to see the bright side of life even when the road is bumpy!!!

My plan? HMMMM....Well, first my plan is to track my cycle but try not to obesess over it like I did this cycle. I am going to enjoy whatever December brings me and celebrate this holiday season with a positive outlook and be thankful for the family, friends (including you ladies!!!), health and happiness I do have. No longer will I focus on the bad. Everything happens for a reason. If I am meant to be a Mommy again, it will happen. If not, I am truly blessed to be a Mommy to the ds that God gave me. Other than that, I'll most likely look into herbs and bd'ing more often because I honestly am at a loss as to when I O'd the last 2 months. If I bd every day I should be covered this month right?

Thanks to all of you offering me support! You ladies are so wonderful!

Hey ladies! Sorry it took so long for me to post today, I've barely been near a computer.

First, NVmama I am sooo happy for you!!! I hope I can join you soon.

We retested this morning with the 2nd good test and got another super faint line. The thing is, I had to pee just about every 3 hrs last night so I don't know if my FMU was concentrated enough (not really FMU) ya know? But... I am going to retest again once more tomorrow with a brand new box and see what it says. If there is still a faint line, I will assume yes and proceed to the blood test with the midwife.

It's been a rocky day for me. It's my 27th birthday and I had really psyched myself up last night to see a FAT line this morning, so when it was the same as yesterday, leaving me wondering, it kind of dampened the mood.

I'll be workin tomorrow with internet access nice and early so I will keep you posted! Keep everything crossed for me ladies. Except those of you who are about to O, no crossing those legs (sorry, I couldn't resist)!
post #97 of 574
Yogachick:I'll be keeping my : for a on your blood test with the mw. GOOD LUCK!!! It sounds like you're already a Mommy for a second time, but I will : for you just in case! Oh ya AND....:

Happy Birthday fellow Sagittarian!
post #99 of 574
Well, I have only posted here once but I wanted to share what is going on. I haven't had post partum AF yet but I am pretty sure I Oed within the last three days. My cervix was really low and lots of CM (EWCM? not sure what it is called). Anyways, I am now in the 2ww so hopefully we will have a Christmas surprise for the family! I don't think anyone other than dh's mom will be happy about it because we already have 5 kids but oh well, we will be happy! I wish all the rest of you bfp's!

Yogachick - I'm in your corner... Hope things turn out great!

Okay, a little more spotting this time than last month. I'm having to wear something, but it isn't like AF... yet. I'm kind of crampy and my face is broke out. It is CD15. I spotted last cycle mid-cycle too, but not like this. I took one of my O tests and I think it was a dud. I really don't want to use up another one because they are so expensive, but I don't want to be in the dark either. I'm just praying it isn't the excessive bleeding problem coming back.

Erin - I wish DH could come for BD, but he would have a 4 hour drive and then a 4 hour drive back for work tomorrow. I so can't wait until we can be together again...
