Lilac, thanks for putting up the new thread. Can you change my "TTC since" to 1/12? Thanks.

 

AFM: I just found out another friend of mine is due in November. I was happy for her but sad to be reminded that I'm not there yet. Looking forward to my doctor's appt next week to ask about my irregular cycles.

Lilac, Thanks for the new thread! Actually, can you change my TTC since to 5/12 instead of 4/12 (I joined in April but didn't start trying until May). Thanks!

 

Dakipode- I understand completely. I am a children's librarian and right now, my toddler storytime group is full of pregnant mamas (5 or 6, at least). I am happy for all of them, but still sad/jealous.

Thanks for the new thread! A quick temping question that I was hoping someone might be able to help me out with....

 

I usually temp at 5.30am (because I have to get up early for work, and when we were living with our friends and their baby it was the best time to get a reading before being woken up by the little one!) but this morning woke up around 4am and laid awake tossing and turning for awhile before going back to sleep and waking up to temp at 5.30am - it was 36.48. This meant I probably had only had about an hour or so solid sleep before temping. Anyway, then I fell back asleep until 8:45 (the joy of being on holiday!) and decided to temp again when I woke up just in case that was the correct temp - 36.78. I know that 8:45am is much later than normal, but at least I'd had the right amount of sleep? Any thoughts?

Personally, I'd probably have temped at 4. When I was temping I noticed less change/more consistency if I temped early after solid sleep than later after solid sleep (it always went up in situations like what you are describing).

 

I do love the freedom of a CM-only method but kind of miss that temp spike reassurance of O.

doula, I would have temped when I first woke up, even if it was after a short amount of time deep sleep.

 

dakipde and librarygirl I have changed your TTC dates.

 

Looking forward to some vacation days up in Canada.

doularebekah, I temp right after waking up. My usual time is between 6:30 and 7:30am, that seems like a big swing but my after O temps shift so clearly that it doesn't make a difference. If I wake up earlier for some reason and I go back to bed for an hour or so then I temp at "usual time", rather than "have to go pee" time. However, I also have a very easy time going back to sleep and I think my body just goes right back to its sleepy temp state. Ultimately I think it shouldn't affect your chart if the rest of your temps are pretty consistently taken at 5:30...

deborah, I think your post was in the June thread about not remembering that you joined.  I updated it yesterday so this is the July thread.

Hi Buffy, welcome!

 

Well, exciting non-baby news in my world. My sister got engaged on the 4th of July! Planning for a July 2013 wedding. I did give her a heads up that we are TTC (we aren't hiding that, just not really announcing it to the world) and if things work out that I am pregnant and my due date is within a month of her wedding date, I will be backing out of the wedding party. She assured me that we'd work it out and she was flexible on her date at this point. I told her that we weren't going to change our plans so she shouldn't either and hopefully, I can still be in her wedding, but if not, I will still be there, just not as a bridesmaid.

 

Now, I'm 5DPO and if I get a BFP this cycle, I'll have a 3 month old come next July so we'll be all set! :) I was sitting on the grass watching the fireworks, with the puppy in my lap on Wednesday and I couldn't help but think that maybe next year I'll be holding a baby, instead.

 

Hope everyone is having a great day. At least it's friday!

Hey ladies, 

 

Thanks for the advice - unfortunately AF found me yesterday morning anyway. We're now on to cycle 10, almost a year of trying and I definitely felt pretty down yesterday. It's so tough not having any control over this! 

 

Hope you're all well :)

AF found me today as well.  Onto further planning with the RE about when we might be able to schedule our first try with IVF.

 

Watching Secret Millionaire.  One of the charities is called "New Hope Grief Support Community" which is a place for people to grieve and grow through loss.  I means a lot as I think about a family at my school that lost their 8 year old son this weekend to drowning.  I want them to have new hope after their loss.  We never know what tomorrow brings.  Love your family and friends.  Never take a day for granted.

AF is here for me too. bah. Can't help but dream of pregnancy. I hear you ladies about being sad/jealous when a friend is prego or just even working with my prego colleague! It's so tough. Hopefully not too much longer for each of us!

I had similar thoughts as I watched kids having fun at the parades we went to on the 4th.

 

Adding to the string of bad news, AF is paying me a visit as well. I think I'm settling in to TTC as the new normal. This month I was not as stressed/worrying about things and found the 2WW flew by. I'll be trying OPKs hardcore this month (tried last month but didn't POAS nearly often enough to catch it ... maybe once every 2 days!) so that gives me something different to channel my impatience at.

 

Good luck and happy summer to all!

Trying very hard not to symptom spot during this TWW but.....

 

I just posted this on a different thread but thought I'd share here, too.

 

We only DTD twice during my fertile window so I wasn't real hopeful and haven't been focusing on it too much but late last night (9DPO) I had a tiny bit of spotting. A little more this morning but now (at noon), it's seems to be stopping and it wasn't ever heavy, just a bit of light pink CM. I've also got a pinchy-pully feeling in my uterus last night and this morning (not bad just a tad uncomfortable). It's too early for me to spot for AF, unless I'm having a really strange cycle.

Against the sane part of my brain's advice, I just POAS and got a BFN but if I'm just now implanting, of course it's BFN. :) Going to try to wait until Friday but I'll probably use one of my $tree tests tomorrow just because i can't resist.

 

FX'd for me, please!

I'm still waiting to O and I've got a stupid cold. I'm not feverish, which is great for my temps, but I can't breathe. Are the cold medicines likely to linger in my system any?

suzmo, I will add you to our list.

meg, I wouldn't think that cold medicines hang around very long

librarygirl, looking forward to seeing what is up with you and the early spotting.

AFM, AF is almost over.  I find it funny that so many of us are cycling at the same time. Reminds me of college when all my roommates seemed to have AF at the same time, but here we don't live together.  Interesting.

Yesterday was my 2nd wedding anniversary.  DH bought be a dozen roses and we went out to eat at olive garden. My belated birthday gift (ordered 3 weeks ago) showed up - a custom made dress.  I love it, fits well, and it is so pretty.  DH did well chosing from the several dresses I liked.

BuffyAnne, sorry to hear of your loss.  I hope your stay here is short and that a BFP comes your way soon. I have added you to our list as well.

Still spotting, still crampy, still BFN. I think AF is coming but all this spotting isn't normal for me. I need to make an appointment with my midwife and see what's going on. We had dinner the other night (she taught my Billings class and we had our "final", which was just hanging out and talking and looking at charts) and she was concerned by my 12 day luteal phase being too short and if I'm now spotting 3 days before that, that's not good.

 

I know I'm not out of the game until AF actually does show this month but I'm not feeling very hopeful right now.

 

On the plus side- I've had a migraine for two and a half weeks and if AF shows her ugly face, I can get vicodin to take, which should help, a lot! The doctor I saw last week for it simply shrugged off my pain and suffering and didn't even want to hear that I had a migraine (he treated me for a sinus infection, instead). When I asked for pain killers (I've taken vicodin, in moderation, for years) he said, "nope, only tylenol if you might be pregnant". I know that's the best, but honestly, I know a lot of women who have taken vicodin during pregnancy (on advice from ob). That kind of pain/stress from a month-long headache cannot be good for an embryo.

 

Okay, off to work another day, with a headache...The last one like this landed me in the emergency room for a shot of demerol. Really not wanting to go that route again.

AF arrived in full force just a bit after I posted that this morning. :( At least I was finally able to take some aspirin and advil and get headache to where I can at least work today.

Librarygirl- What about Percocet? I know that one is okay for pregnancy. My RE gave it to me after retrieval last year and I know people who are currently pregnant and have taken it on OB recommendation.

lilac: happy belated birthday! A custom made dress sounds like a wonderful and extravagant way to treat yourself! Best of luck on this new cycle. I'll keep my fingers crossed for an anniversary gift for you...

 

librarygirl: sorry about AF arriving though I assume you're probably relieved in a way to have some certainty. The not knowing and wondering is what gets me. You want to believe but not get your hopes up too much and then after a while you just want to get it over with.

 

AFM: waiting to O but I increased my vitex and checked cervical position today (CD12) and it was waaaay up there... I haven't used my LH strips since, based on past cycles, I wasn't expecting to O till after the 20th, but maybe I should check... It would be a happy coincidence that we BD'd yesterday just for fun.


Now that I am a mom I no longer have time for knit.gif,teapot2.GIF,read.gif
