nicolian, your chart definitely looks promising! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you. :) You can make it till Monday!

 

TalkToMeNow, sorry to hear that AF showed up! I had started reading and was going to post that I'm right there with you (I'm at 13dpo), but then I saw your post. No AF for me yet, but at least she brings with her another chance and another month.

 

brichole1214, congrats on building the house! Especially getting a great deal and having your "own" place. :) Waiting for AF can be touch--do you know when to start to expect her? I saw your birth was in December, so I guess you have a little while to wait, right? Not sure exactly how long it takes for her to come back (course, I know if you're BFing then it takes a while).

 

I'm actually kind of excited--my temp is up again today! (BFPChart2.gif http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/32b88b) I did an internet cheapie test this morning, no line (although I'm pretty sure I tried to hallucinate a line for a few minutes--funny how that works). I know 13dpo is still pretty early to test, though. I really had totally given up, but I've been extra hungry the past two days, which is odd for me. I've also had some various cramps/twinges, so my hope is starting to creep back in.

 

 

 


Me (28) and DH (31), TTC since summer 2010. I have "Lean" PCOS with IR -- started Metformin 10/2011.   chartnew.gif http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/32b88b
Finally got our BFP pos.gif 4-16-12! Welcomed our son into the world naturally on 12-12-12. 6lbs 8 oz, 21.5in at 38+1 weeks.

We got married almost 5 weeks ago and I changed my last name to his. I still forget all the time and write my old last name. On my new drivers license I started signing it with my old last name. They wouldn't let me re-do it so I had to scribble it out and sign my new last name. LOL!

Thank you!!  :)  I"m so excited lol.  AF should be here within the next few weeks i hope lol. I know it's going to be a little bit more delayed than those who don't BF at all because i BF and pumped for the first two or three weeks.  So i'm trying to be patient, but it's so hard because I really can't temp accuratly until I do get her back!!!

Congrats on the new house Brichole! So exciting!

 

MommyMatsumoto~ Ugh! I hope it's clear what's going on really soon! 

 

Regarding name-changing, we've got a lot to think about! SO has gone by his step-dad's last name since he was 3 and officially changed it when he was 16. I went back to my maiden name when I split with XH, and the kids still have XH's last name. The kids haven't seen XH for over 2 years, and SO wants to adopt them. The kids have assumed that when SO and I get married, their names will change to his along with mine, and we'll all have the same last name. I've checked with the school, and the kids can start going by his name if they want. It's up to them... they might change their minds before we get there... and I don't know how I'd feel about one of them changing their name and the other not, so it might be easier just to not go there.

THank you and about the name change....here's a story about something kinda like this that happened in my family.

 

I have a second cousin who got married and had her first daughter in 1983...so that child took her father's name and she kept that name until she was 6 though her mom had divorced her dad by the time she was 2.  Then when her first daughter was 7 she had married another man and had her second daughter with her second husband and her second husband adopted her first child so both girls had the second husband's last name.  Well, her and her second husband got divorced 3 years later and hasn't been in the picture ever since.  Well, she married her current husband who she didn't have any children with but by the time that they got married her oldest was 13 and didn't want to change her name when he wanted to adopt her and the youngest child.  So in turn, the oldest child still has the second husband's last name and the youngest child has the current husband's last name.  Neighter have their given last names anymore and they are perfectly ok with the fact that they don't have the same last name either.  So i guess it's just up to you on how you feel about your children having different last names...and how they feel about having a brother/sister without the same last name.  It works for my cousin and her kids though.  And i hope that that didn't confuse you...just a thought though :)

nicolian: I vote for Wait till Monday...but I don't know if I'd be able to...

 

brichole: Yay for new houses and new starts!

 

chicajones: crossing fingers for you!

 

 

I'm another lady that didn't change her name when I got married.  My husband didn't change his name either.  DS has my last name and his future sibling will have DH's last name.  We figure there's so many people out there with different names than other members of their family, and this felt like a nice 50/50 split.  And a name doesn't make a family.  Yes, I'm sure we'll have explaining to do (we already do sometimes), but we don't mind.

 

AFM: 4DPO and keeping on with my exorbitantly slooooooow rise.  On the plus side, I looked at my chart from when I got preggo with DS and the first 4 days after ovulation I was either just above, on or just below the coverline.

Can I just add...

 

I debated whether or not to say something, but I'm remembering that a month or two ago we lost at least one person from the ONE THREAD and I would hate to see anyone else leave because they felt this wonderful, supportive (and fun!) thread was no longer a comfortable place to be.  I respectfully ask that we all be cognizant of the fact that Thread Members represent a range of personal backgrounds, political and religious beliefs, etc.  Therefore, I suggest it may be a good idea to refrain from sharing personal opinions of "hot button" issues.  I know we all appreciate having this thread as a place to share our TTC journey with other women, and sometimes that means venting about watching others around us get pregnant - which I think is totally fine.  Sharing our feelings/opinions on what other women are choosing to do with their own bodies, however, is probably best left off this thread.

 

Hope I'm not stepping on any toes.  Just want everyone (myself included) to continue to feel this is a safe place to share about our own personal TTC adventures & misadventures.

 

Peace.gif

 

ETA: Sorry if this sounded too vague/unclear.  My attempt at being tactful and nonconfrontational.

I'm not sure what hot button issues you're referring to..? I also saw that mentioned when the other member left this thread. I couldn't find any apparent reason for her leaving. I'm so lost...

That didn't confuse me at all! My only concern with the kids having different last names is, when we have a baby, there will be only one of us with a different last name. I guess that wouldn't bother them so long as it's what they chose. I don't like having to explain to other people that we have different last names. I HATE being called "Mrs.S" and it's really hard not to express disdain for the name. I didn't teach the kids how to spell it, they learned that from school. I know a name doesn't make a family, but I think it's more appropriate for their name to be shared with the people who love them and are raising them, rather than the person who abused and abandoned them. It's sort of a loaded issue for me, I guess!

Mummuth...   I think you should do whatever you feel the most comfortable with. I'm not sure your kids are old enough to decide for themselves, either. I am seriously considering making up a last name for my future child(ren), as I feel like my relatives (my father in particular) haven't earned the right to live on through my offspring.

Nicolian...   LOL Yes, I'm single and will likely stay that way for awhile. TTC puts a major damper on dating. Men just don't seem to be able to get past my conception practices. (shrug) LOL

I am using live donors, who I meet and get to know a bit. It's not the best situation, but it's the best for me right now. (Oh, I'm perfectly okay with being a single parent, the part of the situation I don't like is not being able to just roll over and there's my donor! I have to schedule and reschedule and drive 20-45 minutes away and wait an hour for the donor to cancel and argh!)

I could see how that would get frustrating! So, do the donors know they are donors? Will they just be 'let off the hook' when it comes to the parenting? Are you ever worried they won't want to be? Sorry for all the questions. Feel free to ignore me.

Nicolian...   Congratulations!!!

 

As for your questions, yes, the donors know they're donors. And all of them are told that the only involvement required is the initial conception. I don't see it as being "let off the hook", this is no different than if they were to go donate at a sperm bank.

 

Oh, no, I'm not worried about them wanting more involvement than originally planned either. All of them would have a lot to contribute as fathers, if that's what they decide they want.


43 w/Emphysema - TTC from 2005 - 2013. 2 miscarriages in 2008. Good things do not come to those who wait.
