Fall 2008 TTC #1 in our 20's - Page 2

Yay, Jenifer! Congratulations!!!!! :
post #22 of 732
Congrats Jennifer! :

Ok, as for me...my postpartum doula training has been canceled due to Tropical Storm Fay. Crap! I was looking forward to that as a way to pass the time quickly, doing things I enjoy, while NOT OBSESSING about whether or not I'm pregnant! Now what am I gonna do all weekend?!

I am 8 dpo today, and I *swear* my boobs look...more full or something. But it's hard to tell because I have really big boobs anyway. And what's weird is by now I'm usually getting really bad breast tenderness...all I have now is sensitive nipples. Strange!

Ah, see? I'm obsessing! I am NOT going to test until 15 dpo, and only if my temp is still up. Nope. Not gonna test.

The only breast changes I had for MONTHS was sensitive nipples.

I'm not helping, am I? Let's see... I'm not sure the sensitivity kicked in that early for me though, I think it was after I got my positive test (on 15 DPO) so see, you should stop obsessing and just wait. *nods*

(Did that help any?! )

Thank you everyone!!


F_E... I was the same as Lee... only nipple tenderness forever... still have it really.
post #26 of 732
I had only nipple tenderness until my bbs suddenly turned into leaded balloons. Don't remember when they got so full and heavy though, sorry. But still... wait to test!!!

Yeah JSMA!!!! Little girls are so adorable... ok, little boys are too, little BABIES are just adorable!!! How sweet you got to see her little feet.

Have you gone to a dr? I tried progesterone, Vitamins, Dong Quai, Red Raspberry leaf tea and still had no AF for 3 months and I was feeling horrible. So I went to my dr and she took a ton of blood work and gave me a pill called Provera and I took it for 7 days. I stopped them on Saturday and yesterday (wed) I got my period back!! I am not a big person to go to the dr a lot but I was feeling bad and ready to get it over with.

Hiya all. I have been MIA for a while here, school inservice has started up and I have been SOOOO BUSY getting ready for the school year to start. That and I wanted to give my brain a break from TTC for a week.


I am just so happy for you JSMa! I thought you might be having a girl! :


Just for fun, here are my predictions:

lynx- boy
desperatemommytobe- girl
steedalyn- boy
dachshund mom- girl
Amber Lion- girl
doglady- boy
merebella-boy
JSMa- girl
lee- boy

Only time willl tell!


not yet- I am not sure if I will chart this cycle or not. I have been waking up at all different times lately which will make my chart look weird, and I think I just need a break right now from it all.

feminine_earth- Hang in there! The first cycle is the hardest for waiting.


Thanks for the wonderful new thread everyone! I won't be able to post much due to school starting next Tues. I have been to all their houses and met them all, and I think it is going to be a banner year, but it takes a lot out of me. I will pop in to see how everyone is doing.

I got the darkest opk of my life today. I am so exighted! I think I have posted this pic a thousand times! you would think it was a HPT!
post #32 of 732
Ok, I'm just going to ramble because I don't know what else to do. So today when I went to the restroom, I noticed a pinky spot on the tp. I further investigated and found a bit more. I've never that I know of spotted during my LP. It was so tiny that I wouldn't even call it spotting. But, I do wonder, was that implantation spotting. I doubt it. I don't feel pregnant. I think I ovulated on day 17, not what FF says. I base that on other charts, my temps usually take a few days before they get really high, and it is typically never above 97.5 before ovulation. Yes, I disagree with last months chart too. I did warn you that I was going to ramble didn't I. Well, I typically work nights, so I inconveniently don't see my husband on any of the prime days. So, we missed cd15, cd16, and cd17. I hardly every see really nice CF. I doubt the sperm could have survived. But, I saw a pinky spot. Why???? You don't really have to answer. This is just a ramble because since I'm so doubtful, I would prefer to share it here with you guys just to tell someone. I'd rather know for sure (BFP) before I told anyone else. My nerves are sure hi right now. Good nerves, bad nerves, you know us girls, we have to think about everything way too much. Yes, we all want babies, but then when there's a chance it might happen, a bit of doubt creeps in. Ok, way too much rambling now. It probably isn't anything even. Just a spot. I wouldn't have even noticed if I wasn't looking.

JSMa, congratulations on your baby girl. I also would like mine to be a girl but we'll see.

Notyetmommy, good guess.

This new thread is awesome. Fall is my favorite season. I hope during this season we can all get our wishes :!

Curious, : I hope that was implantation bleeding for you. It could happen

Welcome to this thread! I will also be TTC starting this fall (probably October). Yay!

I'm having an echocardiogram later this week to check out a potential heart murmur. I'm thanking God for my overall health and for the technology to get this checked out, and asking Him that the appointment be a big fat waste of my health savings account $ (aka they find a perfectly healthy heart).

We had no electricity for 12 hours. It came back on at 5am this morning. Thank GOODNESS we didn't open the freezer. The only thing that was defrosted was the bagels.

Still tropical stormin' outside here! I'm off work for another day, yay! :

9 dpo, boobs are heavy, tender, and swollen, nipples are sensitive. Other than that, nothing! Thank goodness I've already peed twice this morning, or else I'd be tempted to test, even though I *know* it would be negative this early. Didn't know this wait would make me so crazy.

How is everyone else doing?
post #38 of 732
I had a SUPER first time off bc pills cycle! yay! Now I'm just going all wonky with my temps! I was so surprised that I am half expecting it to just be a fluke.
post #39 of 732
kriket, yay for the positive OPK!!

curious&eager, I know what you mean about nerves. I am known for having major anxiety over like everything so keeping myself low-stress during this whole thing has been the biggest challenge. I hope it was implantation spotting! :

BananaBreadGirl, good luck. I hope you get a clean bill of health!

sunnykbird, welcome!

feminine_earth, sounding good!

AFM, still waiting to O. I was really hoping for that peak reading on my monitor this morning, but still high :

Hope everything turns out just perfect for you.

High is still good though, right? Looks like you have fertile fluid, and have for a few days, so the little swimmers should be nice and comfy in there, right?
