TTC 12 Months March Support Thread - Page 3

post #41 of 576
Crystal, I hope your family is feeling better soon, and that you escape the virus. Stomach illnesses suck bigtime, my friend and I were just debating which is worse, major stomach flu or lice (lice is going around the schools here ). It's a close one, they are both pretty terrible.


On the subject of creamy cm in the LP, yes it does occur more often in pg cycles, but I just about always have creamy cm starting around 7 dpo, and on my clomid cycles I had a ton of it, throughout just about the whole LP. It is caused by a small estrogen surge about halfway through LP, and in my case I suspect with the clomid it was just higher levels of estrogen (and higher of progesterone too).

Still : hoping it means something really awesome for you Christy, especially if you do not usually have this sign :

Geez Ity, I know am right there with you. Tomorrow I am co-hosting a Mother Blessing (like a baby shower but more homebirthy) for a friend who got pg with #3 about a year after we started trying I love her dearly but I won't say it doesn't hurt. And I am glad to be there for her (and she is going to HBAC and I am so excited for her as I hope to do that myself soon) but I cannot wait until tomorrow night when it is over ! If anyone asks me when we're having another I think I might explode on them. And someone is bound to ask !
I am sorry to hear AF has been such a witch to you too this time around. I couldn't believe how bad I cramped and ached last weekend, and I had cramps thorugh cd4 which is unusual for me. It must be the extra witchy clomid AF. I hope you are able to put your feet up and relax doing something you enjoy

At least this last cycle I totally picked out my carseat! It's ridiculous...
I am sorry to hear it's not looking like we'd hoped at this point I think that is very positive to pick out the carseat. Get the carseat and they will come to it right ? I remember someone in here saying they got out their infant car seat (they had an older child, it was the old one I think) and put it in the car as an invitation. And she was pg when she told about that. I don't remember who it was though.
Personally I cannot see myself explaining my insanity (about why I have an infant car seat in my car) to all the folks who are bound to ask about it, but that is just me.


Teneal, Lily, Booja's mom, Valarie, Leslie, Sarah and all the many other how are you all today ? Ok I know Sarah is frozen in a block of ice :


My day is about to begin, I hope the next 36 hours go by quickly and smoothly.


Have a wonderful day everyone

I am sorry this cycle didn't work for you Funnygrace. I know I have a couple of baby toys stuffed in a drawer hidden from my kids, because they don't know about all this, and I think of the toys all the time. They are just waiting patiently in there. The time will come.



I am so glad you all got your keychains so fast! Regular mail seems quicker than I thought! It makes me happy you all have them. Crystal, that is funny about your ds running around with it. I love the idea of him holding it so far away from here. It is just a neat thought.


For some reason I am not into writing too much on here lately, but I am reading.

I am doing this- I have names ready to go, and a full wardrobe just waiting for my baby... now they just need to show up!!!

I'm off to class now, with an ear infection... fun :

I have names picked out 2 I love for a girl, and 2 that I love for a boy. I've researched homebirth, circumcision, vaxing, montesouri schools, cloth vs sposies.... I know what I want to do about everything. I know what crib I will use, carseats, I know what the room will look like, I'm so ready for this little one to show up. I feel like I'm gettin stood up for a blind date every month when AF shows up.

I have made so many decisions about this late-comer (no offense, Baby!). Most of these decisions were made so long ago that I'm not even sure I would choose the same things now. I was thinking about sewing CDs (and by "thinking" I mean that I figured out which patterns I'd use, picked out fabric, researched snaps, etc.)... now, I'm sure I wouldn't—just toys. I was thinking hook-on chair, now maybe a highchair isn't such a bad idea. I was planning stuff for babe and now I think I'd just put money into making the house easier to live in. And there were many seasonal decisions that now have no bearing... Maybe I can become a relaxed second-time mom by the time this first one shows up! (The planning always gets worse right in the last days of the 2 ww.)

Love this idea!

to Lily and Ocean and Val and everyone out there, hanging around, waiting as we always do...

Ity - I am so sorry AF was such a witch. I know how hard baby showers can be I've been to more then I care to count lately. I hope you find the strength. Lots of

funnygrace - I am sorry this cycle is a no go. Keep hopeful for next month. The car seat thing is not crazy. I think I have just about everything picked out and have bought several things which my DH thinks is mental. I do agree about the last days of 2ww. I have to stay away from the baby stores and knitting.

Valarie - I hope you feel better! and keep studying.

Lilyflower - I hope you feel better

SarahJen - I just got pics back from my mom. I haven't seen that much snow there in a while. I think on second thought I will stay right where I am. : Stay safe and warm!

Af finally showed up yesterday and its in full force. Not sure if it has anything to do with the uterine biopsy I had on Wed. but oh my... Can't wait for it to end. Trying to be positive I knew this month was a no go and with all the tests I am hopeful we will find out what is going on or wrong so we can fix it.

Hope all of you have a great weekend!

Valerie - sorry you feel so yucky. Hopefully it clears up soon.

Now I feel totally out of place because I don't have a million baby things all picked out! I have a room painted (Blue's Bubbles Blue!) and I know what names I like, but I certainly don't have clothes or diapers or furniture picked out. I feel like if I did I'd jinx myself. There is some baby stuff in the house (it's stashed in the lovely baby blue room) that my MIL had picked out before she passed away last year. It was meant to go to a friend of my DH's (and mine, since I know them) family who'd just had their first little one. Except that she never sent it. I found it after she died, and by then their baby was no longer so little (he was one!). So, I kept it and figured that it can be from grandma, even though she'll never meet her grandchildren.

I have also been stabbed by a needle (yuck!) and should have a result by Tuesday. I let y'all know what it is when I find out.

How wonderful! I lost my mom when pg with ds and I have been so happy that she passed along a few family things that we were able to use in his room. You were smart to keep them!

Fingers crossed for good news on Tuesday, too.

This made me get all weepy, I think I'm feeling a little pmsy

I don't have any baby things either except for the names we talked about when I was pregnant and the knitting my mom has been doing (non stop!) since then. I think she has enough knitted to outfit the baby hopeful until he/she is at least 2yrs at this point. Which also makes me a little weepy come to think of it.

I can't bring myself to buy anything. The closest I've come is buying a light for the room that will be baby's that is fairly obviously a nursery light. I have thought about making a quilt, but I'm scared to make a quilt because if it never happens, then I'll have this perfect gorgeous quilt without a baby to wrap up in it, and I can't do that. I might buy some fabric though, I found some that is just perfect.

Ity...
This part made me smile, though, because I found the perfect fabric for a baby quilt when my sis was pg with my niece, bought it, cut it, and then didn't get any more of it done. That niece is now 6 yo.

So, I know that one temp doesn't mean a whole lot (trends and all that) and I have no temps to compare it to (so it could have looked exactly the same last month) BUT my temp went up again. This is kinda neat, as it almost makes the chart look triphasic.

Of course, I don't trust this as ff had one of my other charts labeled triphasic and it turned out I hadn't ovulated yet and the second temp jump was ovulation (but ff wouldn't recognize that and I ended up moving the crosshairs on my own). But being fairly certain I ovulated this time, the temps look pretty!
post #54 of 576
Christy, your temp DOES look pretty! :
post #55 of 576
Wow! A new post for the new month. I'm 3 days and 3 pages behind. I don't know if I can catch up with you ladies.

Monday is when AF should be here. Not really charting and have been relaxed this cycle.

I'm having a really woe is me day : I don't know why I continue to torment myself with thinking about what week I'd be in and how big I'd be but I can't help it some days. And then I get to feeling like I'm a complete fool for being hopeful that it'll EVER happen for us again. I'm so angry with myself for feeling like this and I'm so fed up with hoping and staying positive when I just want to cry.
post #59 of 576
Sarah, I wish you were here today. It is 62 degrees outside and beautiful and sunny, and I have been working outside cleaning the garage and it is very nice. Just have a few more days and you'll be beginning a new cycle where things are going to happen. Just a few more days.
post #60 of 576
Sarah - I'm having one of those myself. I'm sitting here on hopefully the last day of AF, finishing up a baby quilt for my friend, and wishing it was for me. I also finished up a few other baby-shower-present/projects today, and so I'm having a beer with dinner. Thats the silver lining, I can still drink.
