Yeah unfortunatly the right spot. I am persuading myself every morning I'll be luckky enough to get a rise, but my cervix seems to be coming down again so I don't think I am going to ovulate any time soon.

I really want to ovulate.

Probably a good dinner at home. I told DH to forget about over-priced flowers, and bring me gourmet cupcakes instead :.

Valentine's Day's Plan - I'm hoping we can get a babysitter and go see a movie, and go out for dinner. But more then likely we will put the kids to bed and do some BD. I'm hoping I'm close to Oing then!

I'm right there with you. I want to not want this but the fact is I do.

CD13 and for the first time in 4 months I feel really good about the possibility of this cycle. Making Love has just felt so spiritual between us these past couple of days, and yesterday and today I had "Peak" readings on my fertility monitor. With a High reading 2 days ago, and having BDd these past 3 days, I feel really good about the chances. My hormones have been at very high levels, though not monitored, I can just feel it.

I am trying really hard not to run out and get a test. I *probably* could test now and get a correct response, but if I wait until Thursday, then I'll have either started my period or be pretty sure I'm pregnant. So it makes better sense to wait, right? Or at least that's what I'm telling myself desperately!!

Sebarnes, be strong! Testing doesn't make you pregnant, and finding out early can lead to heartache. So can seeing a BFN and then not believing it! If you wait until AF is late, then you can be more certain that you won't see a BFN. Just my opinion.

That's what I keep telling myself over and over. And I totally waste tests because I test early, it's a BFN and then I tell myself "Well, it's still too early, so I'd better test tomorrow," and so on and so on until AF comes.

I am still flowin' , it's been 3 days of heavy, solid bleeding. I was only one day late or else I would suspect mc, I was passing some pretty huge clots (sorry, tmi) and no cramping until the clots started passing (on the 3rd day.)

Does anyone know if maca causes heavier bleeding and clotting? I hope it will end soon. I am taking Floradix for my low iron, and just at my wits end.

We have decided to not try so hard, to just relax more , though I am charting this month.

We have a 3 day vacation together (no kids) and I wish it was O time, but it will be fun to practice anyways

                                Whatever will be, already is...

So, in honor of "the Week of Love" (not to mention, I am going to O sometime this week), my DH has decided that we are going to celebrate by BDing all week! I thought it was a great idea.

Anyone else's DH have great ideas like this?

We would move wherever if DH's job required us too...I know what you mean about seeing the world on someone else's dime! There are only a handful of places where I wouldn't move actually...

Awesome idea! Mine take frequent cueing and has very little originality...he's an engineer, what can I say...very analytical, not so creative.

I was quite shocked that DH had that idea! He's an accountant and it usually takes a lot of hinting for him too.

I'm not complaining this time!

Ugh...my bff is like that. she got pregnant while she was on BC AND while using protection (no joke). That happened twice! She goes "well, that's how fertile I am". I'm thinking "spread some of that fertileness this way! I could use some!"

So annoying. : I hate that...I think we all know one of "those". Which is why when my friend, who got pg 3 times "by accident", complains about her kids acting out of control-she has 3 under 4- I laugh devilishly to myself(Mwah, hah, hah...*Dr. Evil laugh*) because it's the only way I feel better
