Lucky TTC #1 in our 30's AUGUST! - Page 2

post #21 of 315

Garlic Thread Hijack!!!

FiberLover, I have some leftover planting garlic from Seeds of Change that never got planted, so I'm hoping it's still dormant enough to plant this fall and not sprouting in my basement at the moment...if not I'm going to order from there again because they had lots of varieties and it looked really nice when I got it.

Cool, I'll go check them out!

I've ordered from them in the past and liked what I've ordered.

Thanks!

Jen- Thanks for moving me to the graduates. You are already a rockin' threadkeeper!!

Hey Guys- Thank you so much for all the congrats and smile parades. They really made my day!! I am on Cloud 9. I woke up this morning and actually re-tested, just to make sure. Plus I had an extra test that was just sitting there......It is just such a surreal experience. Positive again. (and the line was darker today)

I should have had a clue this morning, too- I now have blue veins showing everywhere in my chest and breasts (which are already growing as we speak- my little 36B bra is SNUG)... DH is quite pleased! I can't believe that all of these things can happen so fast!

Mischievium- You are a crack up!! I love your little dream sequence...

GISDiva- these chicks are the best!! I wish you the best of luck.

Talk to you soon!!

I made a really good soup last night, Summer squash, roasted garlic, and roasted red pepper (pureed, topped with plain yogurt with basil and lime) gotta love fresh veggies for cooking inspiration!
That soup sounds terrific!

I try my best with the temping. My sleep schedule is so erratic when I'm on nights that I try to temp after I have gotten a few hours of good sleep (instead of at a set time), but it's harder for me to remember to put the thermometer in my mouth first thing. In the case of today, I had a *really* hard time getting to sleep, then I woke up before I really planned to get up, but I couldn't fall back asleep and I attempted to take a temp, but I had already been awake for awhile and the temp was way out of whack with my normal baseline temps, so I didn't even chart it : . This is why I decided to use the CBE Fertility Monitor, at least for cycles where I am working nights or partly working nights.

Speaking of working... I need to go get in the shower and get ready for work.

Michelle, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you for Sunday : .
post #26 of 315
i quintuple the vote for mischievium, thread us up for sept.! by the way, how did you know what i dreamt last night?

just wanted to say Michelle, that your chart is looking pretty spicy...i'm crossing all crossable parts for ya (eyes, fingers, feet, pretty swank yoga move that gets the elbows)
p.s. fingerling potatoes, mmmmmm. In CA I can only grow a tropical sort of garden which is beautiful with a lovely lemon tree, but it's not the same as a good working veggie garden!

FF says that yes, i O'd on the 30th (day of relaxing massage followed by BD), so that's good, though i am a little bummed that we didn't the day before as well. DH is sort of worried about mobility and he really wanted to wait a day for a powerful league of swimmers and i wanted to honor his own intuitive feelings. hopefully it's all enough. never did hopefully come up as much as it has the last 8 months.

Peace to all~

I am just so excited for new members and all the happy vibes in here. I am rooting for everyone. I am even rooting for myself and I am not TTC this month. I hope I have at least a 10 DPO luteal phase before AF!!! I am on DPO 9 (as of now since it is 12:12 am). Of course I have to be going out of town when he is due (I call AF - aka Actually Frank) a male because it has to be male. No female would be that torturous!!! Anyways, just wanted to check in, wish everyone luck on their 2WW and Michelle G/L Sunday... whoop whoop!!!
I got my 30 pack of OPK and HPT AIM sticks today in preparation for the doc to say.... it is a minor problem, here is a pill, now get to it!!! I just keep thinking {{{{{{{positive vibes}}}}}}}}
G'dnite all!

Well, temp is the same this morning, so I'm hoping for it to maybe inch up again tomorrow; still planning on testing on Sunday morning at 11 DPO. By then my temp should give me some sort of an indication anyways.

I've been REAL good about temping so far in this 2ww, 6am on the dot, first thing, etc., funny, cause I'm not nearly so good when I'm waiting to O!

I was out in the garden again this morning, I love it so! I love going out there, letting the chickens out to eat the bugs, and just checking on all the plants, it really gives me a good peaceful start to the day.


Laura Sounds great! I'm glad you're excited even though you're not TTC this month!

Poet Thanks for the crossed parts! I'm glad you Oed when you thought you did, and heck one day is all you need if the timing is right! Fingers crossed for you too.

mischievium Yeah, if I didn't have a regular sleep schedule I don't know if I could handle the temping alone either, and I'd probably do likewise and use a fertility monitor too! Hope work was good!

Mandy
Woot for lines getting darker! That is totally fun, isn't it?

Ok, and now...to find something to distract me for the rest of the day...

Chickens! Man, I totally want chickens, but we can't have them in the city. Someday, though.

The chickens are awesome. I never thought I'd like them this much, but they're totally fun. We have 12, 4 different kinds, 10 hens and 2 roosters.

A few pics:

The white leghorns are the friendliest, then the rhode island reds, then the marans, and the araucanas are NOT friendly!

I'll let them out of the chicken coop/run in the morning, and they hang out in the yard eating bugs and foraging for the day, then back in for the evening. They LOVE to help me garden, whenever I'm weeding I ususally have a couple of them right with me eating bugs as I weed, so cute.

And when I head out into the yard, they all run to me, so funny, like I'm the chicken master!

You should definitely get them one day.

Not to mention, fresh, free eggs!
post #31 of 315
You are definitely the chicken master.

Do you eat them, too, or just their eggs?

Since this is our first "batch" of chickens, we're just eating eggs. But next spring, we plan on hatching about 25 or so chicks with the plan of eating them next year. Of course, it remains to be seen if I can actually do that, but DH says he can, so I'll follow his lead.

I'm not vegetarian, and believe strongly in domesticated animals being used for their purposes, but being raised ethically, organically, and locally. So, it really would be a good source of food for us.

BFN on 10 DPO, but still waiting for AF...honestly, I'm not even that bummed (it might be too early anyway), I'm just thrilled that my LP is back up to 10 days and counting...if AF is going to come though, now would be a good time. We're leaving for Albuquerque in a few hours and margaritas and a hot tub sound pretty darn good...

FiberLover, I'm jealous too, my grandmother had chickens when we were growing up and I totally want some. We only had cows, but I'm thinking a nice goat or two would be great to help "mow" the lawn. Can I convince our city of that?

Albuquerque! Do you live in NM? PM me....I'm....in the area so to speak!

Goats are only semi-good to mow the lawn, they'll eat EVERYTHING else too, so you either have to fence everything else off, or only have lawn for them to really work. We have 4 goats and some sheep and a llama too, and we still mow.
post #35 of 315
I know, goats aren't perfect, but they're so darn cute!

I'm actually from Wisconsin, we're just visiting NM. I'm getting sent there for some training, so hubby and I are making a mini-vacation out of it...

Oooh! Have a great mini-vacation! Definitely go to Santa Fe (about an hour drive), and if you're there, go to the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, my favorite.

Enjoy!

I knew it! I can spot another cheesehead at 30 paces.

Well, and your location's a dead give-away.

I don't live there now, but my people are scattered all over the state, mostly way up north.
