I'll be off board for awhile. We got rear ended today. Thanfully DS is unscathed, but I spent a good portion of this evening in the ER. I hurt my back and neck pretty bad. I'll be laid up for a few days. We're pretty sure our van is totaled which complicates life a bit. It could be worse though. I'm looking at the brightside of things.

Sweetmama~ Yah for the TWW!

ORLY~ The TWW takes forever doesn't it? Le sigh myself!!

bumminbeachbabe~ So so sorry!!! Take care of yourself and take all the time you need!!!! How scary!!

Melek~ *big big hugs* April 15th can't come soon enough.....although I keep toying with the idea of waiting and testing on April 16th. I'm not sure. The 26th would be 14DPO which is when I got a os test last time. I didn't get a positive test with Addi until 15DPO! Not sure what to do. I'll probably end up peeing on sticks a lot earlier than I wanted to... I seriously WOULD have a due date of Dec. 24th! OMGOSH! That would be insane! What a great excuse not to have to travel though!!

trekkingirl~ So happy for you!!

AFM: Nothin much...4DPO....hangin in there. Trying not to get my hopes up as we only BD'd once this cycle. I keep telling myself how exciting it would be to have a Christmas baby...but at the same time....it'd be terrible too. I don't want to get too attached to the idea. Hurry up April 15th!!!!

Tara and Jennifer- So great to see you back here! Sorry it isn't under better circumstances. But alas, if at first you don't succeed..... :-)

Lawmama- OMG CONGRATS ON THE BFP!!!!!!!!!!!

AFM, I missed Monday check-in again. lol. sorry! I"ll do a modified version here. I'm happy to report that my last cycle was only 35 days compared to 42 and 46 days like the previous 2 (respectively. lol). However, I am NOT pleased to report the 20 days of consecutive bleeding that occured.... OVER. IT. But Finally yesterday was my first day of not bleeding and I couldn't be happier about it! I'm getting better at checking my CM I think. I seem to be a little bit more accurate lately. I will start temping tomorrow since I'm starting to get closer to a possible O date, but since my cycles are so long and it's really hard for me to consistently get up at the same time I've been pushing it off as long as possible. lol. I did start OPKs yesterday too though and they've all been negative. We're not actively actively ttc for another month since I'd prefer to wait until after my son's first bday to increase our chances of a VBAC by going through a midwife. And those are her rules. So this is my last cycle of "not really trying" although we still dont use protection. We just avoid during the few days I"m ovulating. If it happens it happens. Starting next month we're free and clear though and since I've decided to stay home with the kids after this semester we have no restrictions as to what due date we're shooting for. I'm really looking forward to the trying part. :-)

Well, running late for class now so I gotta go, but I hope everyone's having a wonderful day!! :-)

Krys, . As an aside, your craving almost made me want to ralph LOL my gag reflex totally went into overdrive, which is weird b/c I LOVE onions and cheese. Must be the egg (I'm vegetarian and don't eat eggs unless they're cooked in something like a cake mmmm lol or pancakes). But, I really feel you on the exhaustion. I won't even be 4 weeks until Friday and I am so, so, so tired. It's unreal!

Erica, thank you! Btw, TWENTY days of bleeding? Omg that is all I can say. Are you planning an hbac with a midwife? I just met with some hb mws (I posted all about it in the december ddc), and I'm so excited about the prospect of a HB. Now I just need my BP to cooperate

Of course, with some of us obsessive testers, it can be as short as 8 or 9 days until a BFP

I took a test today but I'm certain its WAY too early for me to test because I'm only 4DPO the eggie hasn't even implanted yet.

LOL I checked that previously and scrolled right down to the "T" section. I failed to notice it was the first entry! Thank you!


So...I guess I'm in the TWW? I don't know for sure when I O'd. I think it was last week or so? By my guess I'm due to start around the 19th?

I don't chart or check anything We mostly wing it...

I took a test a couple of days ago as well...even though there's NO way it would be able to tell

If you are due for AF around the 19th you probably only just ovulated sometime between sunday and today

Jennifer, case in point Krys and AFWife? lol just teasing you ladies!

And me. I started POAS at 8dpo, but I totally peed on leftover OPKs just to see if they'd be positive (if they were, I totally would have POAS earlier )

I had to badger my DH into buying a box for me! He's dead set on not testing unless I'm late because even if it's negative I won't believe it until I get AF...

that being said, I still obsess like mad!

Oh,I would totally sneak and buy them. I'd buy some and hide them so I could build up a stash to start testing early. Then when I was closer to actually possibly getting a BFP, I'd tell DH "maybe we should pick up some tests." . I did the same thing with OPKs. DH is kind of the "oh it'll happen when it happens" type, and I'm the "once we decide to TTC, I want to be pregnant yesterday" type, so I'd buy a 20 pack and not tell him I was testing a couple times a day. I'd just say "I think I might be Oing in a day or two if you want to try this month." Lol!

I use the limited version of FF and so it goes by AF dates alone...it can be a bit frustrating.

I used to buy the dollar store ones too but even those are too expensive for me... I went online and bought them from a website for MUCH cheaper! I got 100 OPKs for 49.50 w/ free shipping. And they were there 2 days later. :-) The website was here. But actually, I just looked and this deal is even better link. Wow I'm definitely gonna order from them next time. 100 tests (OPK or HPT) for $34! Cant beat that!! That comes out to .34 cents each! Crazy.

Anyway, just wanted to share the websites I'd found. :-)
