Yay, Mae!!!

I'm still going to be PMing you pics of my pee sticks, so don't think this means you can shirk your responsibilities.

Call me crazy, but I just had this FEELING that as soon as you were able to try again, that would be the end of your trying. I'm so happy my feeling (and BelovedK's reading) were spot on!

YAY MAE!!!

I *kinda* want to join you, but, I got laid off today. OMG could they have at least done it BEFORE I O'd!? It was pretty heartbreaking, cause that job was close and flexible for me. I really loved 99% of the people there too.

It is interesting to note that when we conceived G neither one of us had a job (although DH was getting severance) I was also newly pregnant off of a miscarriage when I started the job I just got laid off from. Ah, memories.

Well so I still really want to be pregnant, it's all of a sudden not so great timing since I would have saved all pregnancy to stay home for as long as possible. Hoping that the next door that opens is a great one. Send positive job-getting thoughts my way!

Jessica, wife to Greg since 7/04, mama to the rainbow1284.gif Gman 7/06, 3 brokenheart.gif , rainbow1284.gif Asher 1/11 and a wonderful surprise due in August!

Tear

I think my thermometer has a flat. Check out my chart on my homepage.
I know it's cold out, but my temps are so low and flat, I can't see how I could be pregnant even if I sleep with my head under the covers passing gas all night.

If I'm not pregnant this cycle, I won't know what to do. I mean I did everything right. What else is there to do? For some reason, some cycles are more stressful than others. I know I will fall apart if I am not preg this cycle.

Funny... a friend of ours just met a girl online. They had their first date last night where she told him she was unsure about having kids (So is he). She told him she wasn't worried since she had plenty of time to make that decision. (she's 38, Bwwhahahahaha!!). Anyhoo, being 39 and having so much trouble, I couldn't help but snicker. I was the same last year before I started having mc's.

Enigo look at my temps.... up to 6dpo they were way under the usual post-O temps I got and then after 6dpo just barely skirt the bottom edge of my usual post-O (I usually get 98.7 or so... this time all around 98.2) even in my own home with the same amount of blankets as always...

Oh oh, better yet... here

jessica_s - oh noes! I am so sorry to hear about your job.

Tear78 - spotting = good, methinks!!! !

enigo - what Mae said. You are SOOOO not out yet!

AFM - as I posted in The ONE, I'm currently CD13, waiting to O. My insems planned for tomorrow, Thursday, and Friday... I'm fairly confident that I will O on CD16 or 17, though, as is my norm. I'm feeling a whole lot like last month was a chemical. I'm not sure which is more depressing: convincing myself it was another chemical, or convincing myself that I O'ed late.

I'm pee'ing on OPKs this month, too. Not having them last month, what with the "long" LP (if that's what it was) and all... well, it made me cuckoo. And not cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, either. Anyway, it's nice to get some of the POAS urge out of my system early in my cycle. lol. Negatory today, but I get a nice fade-in, and based on previous expereinces I think I'm looking good so far for that line to darken up nicely by Friday. I usually get 2 days of "for real" positives. We'll see what happens....

What else? Oh, I started blogging again. I used to a long time ago, but stopped because I got "too busy." (Which really just means I stopped making time for the things that I enjoy, writing being one of them). One of the blog features will be a daily "Something Good," which is something a friend and I decided to do this year to create more positivity in our lives in 2010. We have to tell each other one good thing that happens each day.

... hopefully this will also take some of the TTC obsessiveness off my shoulders, too... because I don't plan for this to be a TTC blog (so if you visit and comment, please don't mention TTC unless it's in response to a post about that topic. ) Gotta be honest, though... wouldn't mind if it ends up turning in to a pregnancy-focused blog in about 14 weeks or so. Lol!!!

I have been taking Solaray Maca in capsules for 3 months or so. I just got some raw Maca powder today and everywhere I look, there is differing suggestions on how much to take. Help. I know you can't overdose since it is a food, just wondering what the optimal/babymaking dose is.

hubs and I each take 2000 mg (why don't people just write 2g when talking about maca? i always see it as 2000 mg), not like it's done anything yet, but hope springs eternal. and maca definitely helps with his libido and performance. not to say that anything was lacking, but when he's tired and stressed he tends to get grumpy in the sack. this totally helps with his stamina and has ended all those times where he's been in the mood but then was too tired to finish. i haven't noticed much from the maca, but i'm sticking with it anyway.

so, you know you're a TTC nut when, despite a CLEAR temp drop a day or two before your expected period, you browse the FF gallery to see all kinds of temp drops below coverline at 10-11 dpo and then decide you're still in the game. (no AF yet, but i FEEL it coming, plus look at these TEMPS! hope is RIDICULOUS in this scenario. ) but you know you're DEFINITELY nuts when you glare at your thermometer by the bed, wondering how to trick it. maybe i can wear like, four sweaters and 3 pairs of pants to bed. THEN my temp will rise! BWAHAHAHAHAHA! take THAT, system! i'm a rebel!

a good friend of mine told me not to be upset when i grumpily mentioned that my temp had dropped and my period was about to show. that's why it's bad for people to know when you're TTC. each time you AREN'T pregnant, everyone has a great reason for why it's TOTALLY okay that it didn't happen. and it's like, dude. c'mon. i want a baby. i will obviously be disappointed when my period comes. am i going to slit my wrists over it? no. am i going to freak out that i'm abnormal or try to suck my uterus out with a vacuum or something? no. i am just going to be freaking DISAPPOINTED when my period comes, like ANY TTC-er is no matter how long they've been in the game, because when you want something and you don't get it the natural emotional reaction is DISAPPOINTMENT. you feel it, you process it, and THEN you work on moving past it - you can't just force yourself not to be upset when it's a natural reason to be disappointed. even the zennest person can't stay zen ALL the time. i mean, what are you supposed to do, throw a party when AF comes? lie to yourself and say it's fine because you didn't want a baby anyway? jeez louise.

anyway, projections for next cycle: staying on maca and vitex, keeping up with acupuncture. gonna start exercising regularly and eating better, this time FOR REALZ. daughter is re-nightweaned and we saw a sleep specialist today, so we have a good (yet still gentle and gradual - woo) plan in place to help deal with her sleep issues. i so didn't think i'd come out of that appointment with an actually good plan that i'd feel comfortable with, so mega bonus! with any luck, this cycle will see us better rested at O time and thus more relaxed and able to bang. if not, i totes expect that by the next cycle. we've already seen improvement since nightweaning, so i hope that things keep up in that department. i also appreciate having an extra cycle to really get my energy and motivation back up. they've been super low since i was feeling sooo depressed last month, so some time to get things in order and feel like things are running smoothly would be great.

really, the one thing that is getting me this cycle is that i'm just SO not in the mood for AF. my keeper has been leaking, i hate tampons and pads (even cloth pads), and so my period just totally sucks. and who wants to invest in better period stuff when you want to keep the b!tch AWAY for at least 9 months? maybe i should buy some really swanky period stuff to ensure that i get knocked up. that was the thought behind buying the keeper last june, though, so clearly THAT did nothing for me. anyway, i'm totally at peace with the no-baby part (at least, i think so, but i'll question it if i really do wear extra clothes to bed just so the thermometer can't slap me in the face tomorrow), i'm just sooooooooo not in the mood to bleed like a stuck pig for the next few days.

suuuuuuuuuper rambly. anyone else? where's LZP at?! check in, dangit! i miss having a fellow MDC-novelist on board.
