A country-girl-at-heart (that's land - not music) from a big city, currently biding time working part-time and investing in real estate until we buy land to build our dream home (complete with chickens, bees, the works!) and live off the grid!

Here's a pic...

There is a very real part of me who really, really, really wants the country life - like you. But I'm aughly lazy.

Ima, I think you just caught most of everyone "post O" so they are obsessing about temping now... not me though, I'm just spelunking my DH silly!

Zen - Yes, I do think that MatildaZ should be promoted to Foregin Affairs Liason.

Bio: Olerica, 38, VP Spelunking Promotions
Married 10 globetrotting years to her to Touchstone - TTC #1. She takes everything too seriously but tries to be funny but ends up being strange (Her DH calls her Wyrd-like the fate). Devil's Advocate.

And Zen, honey... god, I hope you are preggers. This thread/topic has been so great for my mental health.

I'm all gearing up to O 'round here and wondered if I was the only one this happened to... Does anyone else have a depressed day a few days before they O? I'm just feeling down and that makes me super sarcastic. (Everyone at work thinks it's great when I'm in this mood because my filters are off and I say outrageous funny and biting stuff. (Normally, I'm very nice, today I feel like biting people).)

Yes. I O'ed on this day last month but I still haven't. Today sucked. I kept txting my DH to complain. I just wish I'd O already.

I feel asleep at 6:30 pm right after I got home from work. DH just called and Woke me up (10pm).

He took my sister to the eye doctor (which happens to be his aunt)and she has a problem with her macula, and needs to see a specialist, and the one the eye dr recomended is working in the city tomorrow(he is good I went to him when they suspected a hole in my retina). My sisters scumbag looser boyfriend of 3 years won't take her. He is such a . I have no clue why she is still with this guy, DH said the whole ride home sis was crying and back and forth in the phone with this guy instead of consoling her he argues with her. He does this all of the time. My mom has told me in the past to try to be nice to him to preserve family peace but after this it is not going to happen. The next time I see him I am saying whatever I darn well fell like.

I'm going back to bed. I will catch up with the thread in the AM.

I do have a name Heather TTC since 08/08 I have no clue how to add pictures.

He's obviously not concerned about your sister's peace, if he's willing to pick a fight with her when she's scared and not feeling well and HE isn't willing to support her. I would think that family peace would be trumped by your sister's need to have someone stand up for her and tell her BF not to act like such an entitled giant baby asshat.

You want me to do it?

holy crap, ladies, you are crazy and speedy.

Binkin! YOU RICK! I didn't see any balls in the mirror, but damn you have balls! The only reason I'm afraid to post something like that is because I KNOW someone I know will find it and I have, uh, body issues. Like my sister used to take pics like that when she was pregs (like 5-6 months) and it looked like she had eaten a hamburger and stuck out her belly - or like mine does all the time. Oh, and sweeeeet tatoo. Loves it. I should get one on the back of my thighs to cover up the cellulite.

I forgot I had a pic on spark too. When I went blond. Now I have luscious dark brown locks haha (trying to get back to my natural color before I get pregs). Maybe I'll try to take a pic before I leave for work today.

I saw Baby Mama last night? Not as funny as it looked. Cute though. But. At the beginning - and I'm not giving anything away by saying this - she gets a BFN, and I was getting teary! Ridiculous!

And ZEN I dreamed that you got a BFP!!! Last night. So.... I can't wait till you get on this shiznit today and let us know how your experiment preg testing w/ the OPKs is going.
post #72 of 2251
Love all the pics and info ladies! Great to get to know everyone better!!!

Just so you know Zen, I'm fully expecting a BFP this morning!

AFM: BFN. and my temp dropped a bit. I know it's still early, but I didn't feel good about this cycle to begin with. Bummer. I'll test again when I get back from Vegas on Monday. If my temp hasn't plummeted by then or flo hasn't shown....

I'm not going to let this get me down though! I'm going to Vegas for 2 days to have fun w/ my girlfriends! YAY!!!

I just wish my son wasn't sick. Boo....he has a double ear infection and we held off on giving him meds because we wanted it to heal without htem (why are docs so quick to write scripts for antibiotics?ugh!) Anyway.....he seemed to be getting better every day this week and woke up today with a 103 temp. Boo! So we started the meds....Wish he wasn't sick when I'm going to Vegas, but I know he'll be in good hands w/ daddy and grandma....

How is everyone else doing? Anyone else testing soon?

Ah, another early riser! Hey green! I hope you have fun in Vegas! Let your hair down and chill! And hey - if you're not pregs, you can have *more* fun in Vegas too. You can still be completely irresponsible!

i'm testing on Wednesday (will be 10dpo, but my LP has been 7-9 days so if I don't get AF by then, I will seriously think I'm pregs). My nipples are still sore but have been since O so it's not a pregnancy symptom. But I am convincing myself that my uterus feels tight. not quite crampy, but just - I can always feel it. Temps are still high but not super high, so we will see.

I officially got crosshairs on FF this morning -- the wait is on!

Also, I had mad dreams of a spelunk-y nature last night, and then had to get up and go to work!!! UNFAIRNESS!! At least it's Friday.
post #75 of 2251
Good Morning!
Zen, have you tested this morning? How are you feeling?

Here is a pic of me taken this summer. And a wedding pic of me and DH.

I love seeing you all!
post #76 of 2251
gbutt - yes, you have to be an early riser when your child wakes at 5/5:30 every morning. And I'm so NOT a morning person.

So, I have to drive to Indy to fly to Vegas. A 2 hour drive. I was all worried about when to leave and stuff and realized - I can do whatever I want! I think I'm going to leave early, read a book, and get a beer and just chill! I'm so stoked about this weekend!!!

gg, that sounds like a fantastic plan. Don't forget to put good tunes in the car for the drive to the airport, and have a great time in Vegas!

Holy CRAPBALLS. One cannot afford to miss this thread for like 12 hours.

Dadamn!

I have so much to follow up on.

For starters - you likey my tatas eh? NICE. They're not too shabby. Husband should thoroughly enjoy those puppies engorged.
Hopefully I won't be left with deflated balloons and tiger stripes a'la, my mother - whose body I have - when its all said in done.

BINKIN - holy shit. You need to talk to PDiddy about writin' some lyrics. Yo. That was AWESOME. Fergie ain't got nothin' on that. (and by the way - for the record - I CANT STAND HER for some reason).

But I'm not tryin' to be a hater this early in the morning.

Okay. Status report:

My temp is still up. DOOD. I have been cramping - lightly - but not period cramping. Boobs don't hurt as much today, nips look as they always do (which...heres a bit of TMI for your morning coffee - I have slightly inverted nips - so I can imagine breast feeding will be friggin LOVELY for me. it also doesn't help, that unlike most of the earthen mammas around here, I can not STAND the idea of ANYTHING sucking fluid out of my body. Hell, I don't even like for my COLLARBONE to be touched...or to stick fingers in my whooha. I am so doomed...) N-EE-WHO.

I picked up some CBE digitals (the plus minus kind). But I am PETRIFIED to use them. I peed in a cup this morning with FMU - in case I change my mind by the end of the day...but I think I will continue to WAIT. I don't think I could handle a BFN.

I had another HOT night.

So all good signs no?

:

Okay. Thats enough about me. When I get to work I'll be updating the profiles - and getting back to some of you.
