Oh phew! Sucks to have to take suppositories, but hopefully this will do the trick and provide some peace of mind as well.

Waiting to be ready.

Preconception: lots of kegels, wellness, trying to relax--any ideas? (i.e. I am pretty type-A and feel that I always need to be "doing" something.

SoCali - That's great! I'm glad he sent in the prescription. And since it's a suppository it is certainly going to work MUCH better than a cream or oral pill.

sraplyas~ No ides on how to relax though LOL

Kami~Woohoo! Glad to see his response. I don't think docs realize how personal and IMPORTANT pregnancy is to each and every one of us....not just a stat in their med book . A m/c may be something they see as "normal," but to us devastating! I have a good feeling about your lil one regardless of the prog

Cindy~Yay for 8 dpo and GL with the testing today!

BFN this morning. I'm sick and DD is sick and teething so I didn't sleep much last night so I didn't take my temp this morning. 9 dpo and no AF. I'm guessing she'll show tonight.

What is considered FMU??? I can't hold my pee until morning. I often get up around 12 or 2 or 3. So would FMU be that pee? Or would it be the pee when I finally get up at 7:30? I think I pee'd 3 times last night...but when I tested I hadn't peed for 5 hours. I did drink water through the night bc I was taking tylenol. Just curious. :-)

My temp was down this morning - still above the coverline - but I don't know. I went to bed late, but I still got 5 full hours of sleep. So I wouldn't think it'd be thrown off. I've had very slight cramping in my uterus for the past two days, but I think it's too early for it to be implantation. I'd like to believe that it is, but I'm not real hopeful. Plus, I just got back from the doctor. She was following up with some frequent urination symptoms I had last month. My white blood cell count is high. So she's going to get back with me as to how she wants to follow up with this. On the off chance that I did conceive, I hope my body isn't attacking the fertilized egg. I don't know. I'm not sure what to think. And I told myself I wasn't going to obsess this time around! Here's my chart. Any thoughts? http://www.fertilityfriend.com/ttc/

Hiya everyone,
So Tuesday I was queasy all day and was thinking it is too early for preggo symptoms and I didn't like the nausea and was wondering how I'll cope my pregnancy with 19 month old and kids. Well, that night I was having stomach bug problems after my family, extreme cramping with diarrhea. After that the nausea went away so now I know what it was.
I was thinking wow, how am I going to go through morning sickness with my 19 mo old and kids? (feeling less confident LOL). I do need to be ready to fight of this nausea with food and supplements (any ideas?). Now I don't feel any different symptoms and I have 1 more weeks till finding out the result. I'm not so anxious anymore...
I applaud moms who have kids within 2 years of age... LOL
Have a blessed weekend!

Kim - I'll be anxious to see replies.I run a home daycare, so when I finally get preggo I'm going to have to figure out a way to manage m/s and early pregnancy fatigue and still keep up with six kiddos!

Swimming-duck - so weird but when I click on your link to see your chart, it takes me to my own chart?? So I can't comment on yours!!


AFM Today is 10DPO. I'm my LP is usually 9-11 days, with 10 being the average. So Im sitting here kind of waiting and hoping I don't see AF today, or even tomorrow. Ive been doing things to lengthen my LP, so if I could at the very least get an LP longer than 11 days, Id be pretty happy (but preggo would be even better!) Im trying not to think about the fact that AF is due today or tomorrow, but Im failing miserably

Marnica - Oops! for no AF. I really hope you see your BFP. I know what you mean about trying to not obsess. I actually very briefly tried to participate in the no stress thread on this forum and I just dropped out because, well, I don't feel like that's what I'm doing. Oh bother - how does one not obsess over this. I don't know. I can't seem to shut that part of my brain off!

Oh...and a new link. LOL.

Saw some brown when checking CM and feel a bit of cramping. I think AF will be visiting tonight. Another 9 day LP. Blah. I think I may try soy next cycle. And I guess I'll be starting progesterone next cycle.

Crystal - You chart this month actually looks a bit like mine! I think it looks good so far!

Cindy - Hope AF doesn't visit or you at least see a decent LP this month. Im in the same boat

Cindy~Sorry you think AF is on her way . 9 days isn't that long, but it isn't that short either. Are you taking b6/b-complex combo? If not, it would probably help a bit. Otherwise, I have no other suggestions . How long have u had ppaf back?

Marnica & Crystal~ I had a big impl dip at 5 dpo, so I totally think its possible to implant that early

Kim~I have tried ginger supps, crackers and b6 to help with nausea. With my last pg, my doc prescribed me something it got so bad. It definately helped

Daisy: Yep, been taking 100mg B6 for months now. And vitex I've had PPAF back for abou 6 months, been trying for about 4. I've been doing hormone testing this month so we shall see. My midwife and ob think my ovulation isn't strong enough, thus the short luteal phase. I was hoping for a longer LP this month since I cut down nursing so much this month. But I didn't cut down until about 8 or 9 days into this cycle so perhaps that was too late for this cycle.

No AF yet. No more spotting. But this is exactly what happened last month. Had a tiny bit of brown when checking CM then nothing all day, started to think maybe it was implantation - then AF showed up in the middle of the night. So I'm sure she'll be here soon.

Just a little update to note (for myself) LOL...
Earlier this evening, when I went to bathroom, I saw a tiny dot of brown/pinkish discharge. I don't know if it is from implantation or pre-AF.
Since I haven't had my af since my start of the last pregnancy in June of 2008, I can't tell what my cycle is or when I ovulated exactly (I only suspected by seeing ewcm last week). I even wonder if I ovulated at all although I did see ewcm since my cycle is not in full swing yet.
No other different symptoms...
At this point, I don't know what I wish after having that stomach sickness earlier this week... I mean I'm getting old (if I conceive this month) I will still be 40 when I have the baby but my 19 month old still wants to nurse a lot (he nurses to nap and go to bed at night, wakes up during the night to nurse, etc...).
Again, I don't know how other moms do it with nursing and having 2 babies within 2 years of age.
Well, it is getting late and I'm rambling before going to bed LOL.
Have a great weekend ladies!

Cindy - I'm hoping AF didn't find you last night.

AFM: Temp is back up this morning. Woo woo. I'm trying not to get too wrapped up in the idea of an implantation dip. I know a chart can show one and NOT be a pregnancy chart, so I'm trying to just take it easy here. But it's hard not to dream!

Well by some grace of god, AF did not arrive! I checked CM this morning and there is no hint of color, like there was yesterday morning. Also, my cervix has moved really high. I tested this morning and it was BFN. But if by chance the brown from yesterday was implantation, I wouldn't expect a BF until tomorrow. Took my temp at my normal time of 2am and it was 99.1 so I'm guessing I still had a bit of fever from being sick since my temp was 99.8 yesterday evening. I temped again at 7:30 after being awake for 2 hours but I had been laying still in bed the entire time since DD was still sleeping and it was 98.4. So not a total accurate temp but I think my temp is still up. Anyway, looks like I might at least get a 10 day LP!!!!

Naturally speaking: I hope it's implantation!!!

Oh no, Wendlynn! I'm so sorry.

VP - a longer LP is an awesome thing! Hooray! KUP on !!

AFM - 7 DPO and dealing w/a ton of odd off and on nausea (which is probably nothing) sore bbs (happens every cycle) and lots and lots of creamy cm (not uncommon). So, everything and nothing. LOL!

I thought I saw some bluer looking veins on my bbs and mentioned them to DH, and he says they're there but he's not sure they weren't always there. I'm not either.

UGH, how am I supposed to seriously wait another week agonizing over all this?? How have I done this for the past 5 months?? I'm going a little batty!

Baby Cakes - If you ever figure out how to get through the agony without feeling nutty, please do share!

AFM: I'm trying not to read to much into it, but I had a pretty decent temp jump this morning at 7dpo. I know a triphasic chart doesn't mean preggo for sure, but it's still a nice sign!
