Haw-k I'm sorry that she found you mama!

Elk It is good, she is very underweight and that may have been part of her problem. I was diagnosed with it in early 06 and when she would complain all the time that her tummy was hurting it just clicked and I knew we needed to get her tested for it. Now, she almost never has tummy problems. It's tough on a small one tho, she misses out on a lot that the other 2 get.

sorry I've not been able to post yet today... dh is a freakin' computer addict and its making me mad... :

anyway, teneal.. I am so very sorry about your daughter... I wish I could say something that may raise your spirits but I dont honestly know much of anything about hearing loss.. or things that effect your ears... I really hope that your mom is right and all she needs is the tubes to just be replaced

haw-k... sorry about af... some certain members of this thread would die to have it.. no names metioned :

Teneal, I am thinking good thoughts for your little girl . What I know of celiac you could fit into a thimble, but I have had my share of ear issues. As a child I was a candidate for tubes in the ears but didn't do it, I spent half my childhood on anitbiotics instead (: ) When I read that your DD has been sick quite a bit lately I just thought her body needs more time to clear everything out. Even as an adult now if I get a bad cold my ears can get plugged up for a week or more, and it drives me absolutely insane. I feel sure that your DD will clear everything out soon. And yes, I have heard it is quite common to have to replace the tubes in the ears because they fall out.
You might want to avoid dairy too when she is congested... it might be more fun too if you buy her special food treats like frozen "rice dream" bars or something so she doesn't feel so excluded from all the food stuff she can't have. I am sure you know all about that though, if you have to avoid gluten on an everyday basis.


Christy good for you on not temping ! I don't think I'd want to do it but I applaud you on your efforts to reduce your stress. I am looking forward to hearing you report you BFP next week !


Haw-k I am sorry to hear AF found you, but you have a great attitude. Yep, a teenager and a babe in diapers is what you are going to have. And that seems pretty fabulous to me


Sarah I hope you get your + OPK soon ! me too for that matter. Maybe we can be cycle buddies. I love cycle buddies.


Elkmama, nice multiquoting
Still no crosshairs ? I would be tempted to put them in myself at 97.8 and cd 15. A couple of screwy temps at just the wrong place can make it hard to know. But I think you are firmly in the 2WW now.


Jill I have had months like that myself. I hope today finds you in a happier place.



On that note I watched "The Secret" last night watch "The Secret" movie for free here
It was wonderful, I can see why people say they watch it a couple times a week or so. It reminded me of the "what the bleep do we know about anything" move which I would also highly recommend. I noticed a link for that one on the page next to the screen where I watched the Secret.
Of course while I watched it I was applying it all to my heart's greatest desire.
I think I've heard most of it before but it is good to refresh everything, and of course learn new things as well. So today I begin to apply the laws of attraction to my own life, and manifest all of my dreams.

haw-k: So sorry af found you!

tenk: my little brother had that same problem and had to have tubes put in like four times. He's perfectly normal now. I'll say some prayers for your girl.


Ok, for the life of me i cannot get my scope to work this month(ferning) It keeps getting all mottled. Not like it's no ferning, but weird. Maybe i need to let my spit thin a little first?

Haw-k -

Jilly - Hi there girl. Hope your spirits lift. Try to do something you know will make you happy. Have an ice cream, watch a funny movie, go for a bike ride...something that is a sure fire mood lifter.

Tenk - I'm praying for that little girl of yours.

Ocean - Glad you liked the Secret. I watch it every Friday night.

Me - I'm 10 dpo and still hopeful. Boobs began feeling sensative today. Had my 3rd session of acupuncture yesterday which was super duper relaxing to the point I almost fell asleep on the table. Was awoken at 4:30 am to wicked stroms this morning. Lots of people died and many lost homes here in Central FL. It's so sad and I'm super duper thankful and grateful today that we are all ok and DS didn't even wake up. And I'm telling you this storm was LOUD. Anyway, these sore boobs are helping my hopefulness. Planning to test either Monday or Tuesday I think. I have one $tree test here. Come on BFP! I know my little October baby girl is coming to me!


Tara

ok. PLEASE someone explain to me how to not be upset! Someone in one of my other ttc threads just got a faint line. Great! Then she posted that she hadn't even been really trying, that it was a spur of the moment thing! WHY would you post that? And why would you actively participate in a thread about ttc when you hadn't even tried! I really didn't need that.

Ok, off to see if anything sold in my store, which i doubt as hc is SWAMPED today!
post #49 of 728
I would like to thank all of you for the well wishes for my daughter. It means a lot to me to have all the support that you all offer.

Jilly I'm not sure why people say such silly things when they are 100% aware of what some of us go thru. When I got pregnant the last time (M/C) I said that I hoped it was twins, and I would stop trying, my Aunt said Um, don't you think one is enough, you can have another later. Um Hello, We tried this long this time, it'll take even longer next time. Bleh, people are just inconsiderate I think.

Tara Thanks for the prayers, I'm really pulling for ya for your October baby girl!!

Ocean you poor thing, we had to get her tubes put in and tonsillis and adnoids out.....I was having to miss so much work because she couldn't go to day care in this case.....it sucked!!!

Crystal Thank you to for thinking of her......I'm taking her in on Monday to see if they can fix it or get her set up for another surgery.

I think I'm getting sick today, and I'm going to leave work today at 3pm and go home and rest. Have a good day ladies!

I think that is one of the things that frustrates me the most, which is why I really only read the 6+ and 12+ months threads on here lately. It's ust too annoying to read about "oops" babies when Dh and I are going on almost 2 years ttc #1.
post #51 of 728
for all of us. The thing i liked about that thread is that it's other nursing moms'. Dd is almost self-weaned, only once a day, but it was still nice to talk about that kind of thing.
post #52 of 728
Tara - Yeah for sore boobs! : And glad you and yours are safe from the storm. I've had that same experience -- dh and I are freaking out, it is so loud and seems so close, and ds just sleeps on through it.

Tenk - Sorry you're not feeling well. Hope the rest helps.

Extra to Jilly & Ity today, just for the fun of it.

Ocean - I've mentally got those crosshairs in there and I consider myself 4 dpo, no matter what ff says!

I just made myself 2 fertility necklaces and a charm bracelet - Thanks for the idea Lily! I used carnelian, adventurine, agate, garnet, coral, moonstone, amethyst, rose quartz and flourite. I'll try to take some decent pictures later when DH gets home.
post #56 of 728
Oceanmommy- All is OK. I won't give you the details of how this pregnancy has been and how stressed I am. Because I know each and everyone of you would trade places with me in a heartbeat and I try to remember that everyday. I'm almost 18 weeks now. Thanks for wondering about me.

Tenk- I hope things are looking up for your daughter! I'm thinking of you.

OH! I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time. I carry around rose quartz in my pocket, but need to find some of the others. A link to what they mean?

so, ok, any ideas as to why i'm spotting?! I had a bit of brown cm, ew, when i went to do my opk. No,i didn't scratch myself, it was old blood, and mixed with cm. And if dh had been rough last night, it would have showed this morning!? If I was o'ing, wouldn't i have gotten a +opk by now? (i'm cd11 btw)

Christy I admire your restraint, I don't think I could stand not temping. Now early testing I can totally live without but I think I'd have an anxiety attack if I didn't temp, I freak out if I wake up late and have to record a temp that I don't trust 100%

Teneal I'm so sorry for what you're going through with your daughter and your family, it must be so scary for you. Sending you good thoughts and I hope you get some good news about it all soon.

Oceanmommy I hope I hope I hope we'll be cycle buddies!

Tara I can't wait until you come and share your bfp announcement

Jill I wish I knew how to take that news and not feel frustrated. My brother and his wife called me last month to tell me she's pregnant and as if that wasn't hard enough news after I just had a m/c and was still waiting for the ovarian rebellion to end she says "we didn't even try, we were only thinking about it, I can't believe how easy it was!" and when I didn't answer she said well you guys are going to try again right? I literally choked on the words and couldn't even tell her that we'd love to but things aren't exactly working out that way at the moment. People who haven't gone through this are completely clueless about the hope and heartbreak we all go through every month. All I can say is I understand completely how you feel. I think for myself I just know how much more I'm going to appreciate and never take it for granted when it happens for me. re the spotting, I'm not sure - did you have a heavy flow after your chemical? It could be leftover maybe if it looks like old blood and your cervix is open?

Ity I'd love to see a picture of them!

Hopesmom I'm so glad you're doing well - I love that you still check in here, I think about you and the often.

Elk can't wait to see those crosshairs!

Busy lily how is the clomid for you this round?

Stephanie, Crystal, Val and I'm sure I'm forgetting a bunch hope you're all doing well.

me no news on the release of the long awaited captive egg yet, some symptoms that I won't talk about for fear of jinxing something :
post #59 of 728
I need some of my own advice tonight. Feeling extremely emotional...please send positive vibes my way.

Jilly - I agree with the others. People who haven't gone through this can never understand. I used to be one of those people since DS came so easily for us. I never really took what people said about TTC very seriously then but now after 8 months I totally feel for every woman who has ever gone through this. We are not alone. Think of all of us around the globe pulling for each other.

Ity - So excited about your jewlery. It sounds awsome. I still haven't gotten anywhere to buy the stuff I want to use to make a necklace. My plan is to use only quartz's (smoky, rose, and clear). I'll keep you posted.
