I TOLD YOU SO

Ok yesterday was my O day -- remember Monday and Tuesday nights Theo slept (and i use that term loosely) like c*&p???? and nursed evey 30 minutes????:

wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllll last night -- when it didn't matter any more -- he slept 2.5 hours when i layed him down, came to bed and was tossing for an hour then slept 5 hours. then slept again at least 2 hours..........

I told you!!!!!!!!

Hi all,

I'm listed as waiting to be ready AND 2ww. The latter is incorrect.

I think I am about to O (this is CD29) and DH is DYING for another baby. So maybe we'll go for it. I'm just not sure yet. I kind of wanted to wait until I was lusting after newborns in the street, but that hasn't happened yet and I don't wait my kids to be more than 3 years apart.

However, we're going away for a 4 week holiday starting next week, and I'm not so sure that I'd want to be in early pregnancy during that time. So maybe we'll wait. But with 45ish day cycles, that doesn't leave me with a ton of opportunities to conceive.

Anyway, I'll let you know if anything changes, but for now, please leave me in the waiting to be ready category and remove me from 2ww.

Finally started spotting this morning.... CD 34 so this is still a long cycle. My LP was about 9 days after a +opk on CD 24, so not THAT bad, if I could just add 3-4 days that would be great.

I'm ready to go with this next cycle, but I doubt that after this funky one the next one is going to be good. I will be happy enough just to see an earlier O and a longer LP, even by just one day - at least that would mean I'm moving in the right direction! Since we don't go for these late eggs, I am dying to actually be officially "trying" and stressing out in the 2ww with ya'll

I'll be starting the B6 today!

It looks like AF will be here today. My temp plunged this morning

Sarah, please move me to TAKING A BREAK
I think I need a break for a while. I'm tired, and need to focus on balancing my life and not on ttc.

Good luck to everyone

I am really feeling good this month

DH's dream - last night he said "maybe it was Theo and twins -- insert laughing -- oh you could not handle THAT"

I don't know -- i jsut feel good

Sarah --please move to to 2WW -- now to put it out of my mind till March 1.

do any of you find yourself thinking abouthow you'll do this or that with anew baby around ----- i was rocking DS down to nap thinking "humm about month 4 of pg i want to start laying down to nurse, and lay down together to sleep, not rocking... that way when the baby is here we can all lay down and it won't be a change for Theo..."

???

So guess what ladies the last couple days DH has been hinting to me that he wanted to have another baby of his own. He said that he has been thinking about this for a while and after everything happened with my surro family He said that it made him really think about having another one of our own so after discussing this for a few days we decided that we will TTC our own little one instead of trying to find a new surro family.

Well anyway with that said is there a way I can change my name?

So anyway today I woke up went to the bathroom and had signs of Ovulation but I don't know so WE did the BD and will do it again
post #147 of 483
Aimee, I am praying for you! Only one week until you can test, right? It's going to be a long one

And no, I try NOT to think about how crazy my life will be will be with another baby, if it happens
post #148 of 483
surromommy2be -- excellent

Maureen -- i won't test till March 1 -- and i want you all to hold me to that. I can't handle the early negs that i try to tell myself are false --

I see a new oB on Monday.

According to the calculators, if I really had a period then I should have ovulated by now. If I don't get a period by the 1st, I'll POS.
post #150 of 483
Hi again ladies, I need to check in here more often so I can get to know you all!

zak, congratulations on your BFP!! Praying for a sticky bean!!

Can you ladies look at my chart? I'm pretty sure this spotting is going to be AF by the end of the day... but do you think I O'ed where ovusoft says I did (the calculation is based on temps alone)... with my temps plummeting the way they have, this has to be AF. My last LP was 4 days so if this one was 7, I will be thrilled nonetheless cause at least I'm headed in the right direction.
post #151 of 483
Bella I'm sorry I don't know anything about charts. But your's looks cool lol:
post #152 of 483
Grrr I am 10po will be 11dpo tomorrow and I really want to test tomorrow even though I don't even feel pregnant and I really don't think I am pregnant....can 11dpo be too early for symptoms?? I shouldn't waste a test tomorrow especially if I don't feel pregnant, but there is this well maybe I am and don't feel like it. I should probably wait until at least Sunday......it's just so hard when you're a POAS addict!! What should I do??
post #153 of 483
If you have any self control when it comes to POAS, you should wait until 12 dpo if you've only got the expensive kind, but I know if it were me I would have tested probably at 9 dpo... I can't help it! My name is Maureen and I'm a poas-aholic.

I don't really think no symptoms means much either way. Most of the "symptoms" of early pregnancy can also be indicators of AF.
post #154 of 483
Hi! Can I join? I'm Serina, mom to Maya (4) and my nursling Ellery (23 mos). We just started TTC this month, and I began charting my temps mid-cycle. I've had my cycle back since Elly was 3.5 months (argh!), so my cycles were pretty regular.

I say "were" because the last 5-6 months have been odd...long cycles, long periods, lots of cramping, and just generally frustrating.

Just to encourage you all, my second was conceived while nursing my first.

On testing...I've never tested positive before the day my period was due, though I always started testing plenty early!

Or, just stay the same and see what happens again.
Eastkygal- I'm so sorry!
I would keep doing what you're doing. you had a great cycle, you Oed and had a good LP. I'd just give it a bit more time. That's just me!

Give yourself some time. Crazy cycles are VERY common pp and take some time to work themselves out.

I am not charting this month but I know I o'ed on the 5th so tomorrow I will be 10dpo tomorrow. Not feeling pregnant really and not very positive for the month, but I am still hoping!! Hoping to wait until Sunday to test since AF will technically be due Monday....if I have no signs of AF coming.....

I hope this will make my TTC journey a bit more bearable....I just never thought it would this crazy lol.
I hope we can help make the journey easier for you! Hopefully it will be a nice and short journey! I'm adding you to the 2WW.

I don't think I'd temp if i wasn't cycling either. it can be a pain! Hopefully your fertility will kick back in

Okay, I'll get that changed, thanks for noticing!! Have a great vacation and hopefully things will fall into place for both of you soon.

Yeah! Glad things are finally moving along! A 9 day LP is pretty decent. the B6 will hopefully help add a couple days. For me, it took 2 cycles to get a longer LP. I hope this cycle will be it for you!!

Oh Amanda, we'll miss you and I'm sorry AF is coming. I hope things settle down and line back up soon for you.

What day are you? Not Oing is pretty common while nursing, unfortunately!!!! Hopefully something happens soon or it already has and you're pregnant! :

well, you should wait a few more days, that said, i'd test at 11 or 12 dpo. if you have some internet cheapies around to use i'd definately go for it but if you on;y have expensive store bought ones i'd hold off until Sat. : for you!!

Whew, that was a lot to catch up on!!!
