The ONE Thread December 10 - 16 - Page 9

post #161 of 246
Juneau ~~ many to you today.

Daniel

My Spirit Baby 'Bloom' was due on Dec 25th, which is sadly the anniversary of our first loss last year, I named him, I truly feel it was a boy,'Gem'. I'm thinking the anticipation of Christmas week this year will be harder than the actual arrival of it for me. Though last year at this time I was in such pain emotionally and physically. Then August 1st came and went as Gem's edd and the anticipation for me was awful, but the day was a beautiful day with my dc so....
I was unpacking all my Christmas decorations in the past week and nothing was where it should be. Things were thrown in boxes and bags, and I am nuerotic about the care and organization of my Christmas treasures, and I could find nothing, last Christmas season is a blur. I don't even remember packing things away or not... it just was so overshadowed and I was in such a dark and sad place.

Oh Mama ~~~ I am so sorry Daniel is not here with you. I am wishing you many moments filled with peace and continued healing.
to you.

Yay for you Willowsmom!!!!

I am currently having the curse of never ending bleeding! I've been hosting AF for 10 days, plus I was spotting for about a week before that. So who knows what's going on. I'm taking about 400mg of Vitex daily, for about 3 or 4 weeks now. I'm wondering if that is a side effect of the Vitex, any opinions anyone?
So... who knows if or when I'll O this month. I'm a little bummed, but more annoyed than anything!

Thank you so much, mamabear. How awful to have had a loss on Christmas. The end of June this year, and pretty much the rest of the summer, was a blur to me, too. I didn't start feeling emotionally healthier until November. But I'm glad I am healthier, because now that I'm saddened by the approach of Daniel's due date, it's a sad from "pretty good," as opposed to sad down from "pretty darn awful."

to you on your approaching loss anniversary and due date.

And I can't believe how much one day of a spiked temp has gotten my hopes up --- oh, the wretched emotional rollercoaster of TTC!

Teehee, Fiona (ny oldest) got all excited and started shouting "Happy M-n-Ms!!!!" when she saw your post LOL.

My heart is with those of you hurting from losses. It's been several years since my last loss, and though I still think about them, the pain is slowly easing. I hope that the pain fades for you, too.

xoxo
Charlotte

HOORAY willowsmom! Good wishes for a quick and successful next cycle!

xposted in nursing mamas thread:
ok, i need ff help. I got a SUPER + opk today and tonight, so i am sure it's happening now... i think. But when i play with ff, (on advanced) it gives me an o date of yesterday (cd20) instead of today. I thought you can't get a +opk after you O? Or how does that work? If the lh surge is like a hill, with an uphill and a downhill, do you O at the top? Or at the bottom of the other side? if that makes sense(i'm so visual) So, could i catch a + on the downhill side, after i o'd? *sigh*
ok, when i play with ff on opk setting it gives me a an o date of today. WTH?

: : : : Congrats Willowsmom!

I'm currently 8-9 DPO, and I'm happy to report that I had a sudden metallic taste in my mouth today. I did not know it was a possible symptom of early pregnancy until after I searched online! As well, I have had a lot of abdominal cramping and bloating, which is abnormal for me at this point in my cycle. And, my cervix is high.

I have a very good feeling about this cycle. At the same time, I'm nervous that my confidence will cause me to be even more disappointed if I turn up not pregnant. I will be testing Saturday morning; counting down the days, which has become hours!

Please move me to waiting to know thanks! I really hope that ff is right, I had some cramping on wed. too. Maybe post O cramping?

I have failed miserably. I awoke at 4:30am and obsessively needed to test. I'm 9?dpo, and terribly impatient. So, I tested with an internet cheapie, and it's amazing what you can get your mind to see, isn't it ?

What I'm noticing on this test is that on the SIDE of the test strip, there is a spot of pink where the test line ought to be. And on the test itself, if I try really hard I have convinced myself I can see a very faint line.

I tried my best to take a picture, but nothing is quite as good as real life viewing when it comes to obsessing over the existence of a second pink line. It's big pic so you can see as best as possible.

Do you see anything? What about that pink spot on the side?

That is a big pic, can you see something? I don't think that the lighting is good enough ( for my eyes ) to see much.
post #174 of 246
I think you're right; it's actually too big to have any perspective! The yellow lighting is also bad. I took another picture in whiter light, and made the picture smaller. Who knew I could be so obsessed?:

I have never been one to stay calm about anything.

Ignore the .psd picture in the link; I have had enough of fidgeting with this software. Just check out the .jpg one (the.psd will cause photoshop to open).

You know what?? I think that maybe I do see something, but I can't say for sure can you take a pic with something pointing out where the other line is suppose to be?? This pic is much better: for you

I can't believe I'm up at now 5:30 obsessing over this maybe line. I can just test again tomorrow and it might be clearer then. But noooooo, I can't sit tight for 24 hours. Sheesh!

Anyhow, here is a pic that points out where I *think* I *might* see a line

Are you opening the .jpg? For me, it shows the strip with an arrow pointing toward where I think I might see a second line. It's the same link, but different picture. I wonder what is going on with that? Anyone else see it? I'm not sure what I can do to fix it if you cannot see it.

I am just getting the old pic. Sorry, maybe someone else can see it.

Maybe because it's in the same place you need to refresh, or open a new browser? DP is sleeping downstairs and he's the tech help around here LOL. I did, however, go show him my picture, and other positive test pictures and he says he thinks there might be something there. I think he thinks I'm nuts for being up right now doing this.
