Hi ladies! Once more apologies for being absent. I feel ready to offer up the threadkeeper hat to one of you more involved mamas. I will still check in, but I am in the middle of my three months off, and I have a lot on my plate right now. Anyone interested in starting us off on Sunday this week? I can send instructions...

 

BeautifulCanvas, I just wanted to say that I am sorry things are murky right now and I want to send you some blessings of of light, love and clarity. I am a firm believer in things that are meant to be will be.

 

AFM, I have moments of thinking maybe I am meant to be a mama of one. I feel like I have not been thriving in my roles of mama, wife, worker, etc. and I am working really hard to heal so I can be more present. As much as I love the idea of having more children, more people to love and be amazed by, to be proud of and challenged by, I feel like it isn't fair to my DD, with whom I am already spread thin, and my DH, from whom I ask so much. And my poor body-mind, which is getting better, but is still stressed and depleted...

 

But when I think about closing the door on having another baby, getting rid of all those sweet little baby things, never nursing again, never smelling that sweet baby smell... I feel sad and nostalgic. And DD asks for a baby brother or sister often. Sigh.

 

So I will continue to linger in "waiting to be ready" and I will see how I feel when I finish my herbs and healing my nervous system. I hope that one day I will feel a whoosh of "this is meant to be" and then go for it. That is my best hope.

 

Love and light to you mamas who actually know what you want!

Hello ladies :)

 

Temp drop the last days tells me this isn't the month for us, but I'm okay with it. DP and I are talking about marriage in terms of maybe a small wedding (not just the JP paperwork we sort of thought we might do one day). So, you know, being able to drink at my own wedding might be nice ;)

 

Hope everyone is well, and good luck to everyone trying hard this month!

Temp drop the last two days here, 8 & 9 DPO. Today was close to the coverline. Never had an LP this short so I have no idea what's up. Thinking of so many what ifs... We live in the desert and it's warm in the day, cold at night.... So we often run AC in the day and heat at night this time of year. Forgot to switch over to the heat last night as so this morning the house was several degrees cooler than normal, so there is that... But I don't know. I don't know much about implantation dips. Aren't they normally just one day? Yesterday wasn't much of a drop from the day before so it could be part of the normal up and down I guess. So confusing! Felt twinges today that felt like O pains... And my brain is a total fog and I can't focus on anything so those two things and the dip make me think.... Maybe? But I just don't feel like that is so. Gonna be a busy weekend as DH and I get ready to go out of town next week to celebrate our anniversary, first trip ever without our two toddlers tagging along. I really hope we can also be celebrating a BFP and not mourning the fact that AF is crashing our anniversary celebration! orngtongue.gif

I want to say I'll take it over for you anyalily but I'm already so swamped IDK if I can. If no one else can do it I think I can manage it for a couple of weeks though.

And hug.gif , you'll figure out exactly what's right for you and yours. Just concentrate on taking care of yourself and your family and enjoying your life. I'm sure just what you need will come to you blowkiss.gif .

IDK Renaissance, sounds promising! Linky to your chart so I can stalk it? loveeyes.gif Last cycle I had a dip at around 6 or 7DPO that lasted for two days then my temp shot back up. How long is your LP usually? Ooh, so excited for you! Hope AF keeps on walking dust.gif .

Me, nothing much going on here tea6.gif . Enjoying, thoroughly enjoying, the amazing weather we're having and the longer days joy.gif . Hope you're all going into your weekends feeling good ladies! kiss.gif
