Beating Earth, like other's have said, your temperatures after you O will be on a different level than before you O.
Tesalynsmommy, hope you are feeling better.
Twilight, hope your life calms down a little soon so you can get some rest. GL in your 2WW.
lunarmagic, hi and welcome. Sorry that AF showed up for you.
tricia, sorry about the BFN, but fingers still crossed for you that it was too early.
Lex, what do you think Lena's reaction will be if they are twins?
Mavourin, you mentioned wanting twins to get your 4th child... I heard of a family one time who had two kids and wanted one more... she got pregnant with QUADs. lol. Doubled their family size overnight.
punquin, hope the rest of the week goes fast for you so you can poas.
About the thermometer, of course make sure it's a basal thermometer... also, you need one that is ACCURATE to a tenth of a degree. Many that you can find in the local pharmacy will "measure" to the hundredth, but only be accurate to two-tenths instead of one-tenth. Several that you can get online will say their accuracy, but the ones in the store don't come right out and say it... you have to look in the "specs" in the back of the instruction manual.
katy, sorry about that fake AF.
mamabear, fingers crossed for you this cycle.
funnygrace, lol at your taking a break from temping. :P I took a break from CM last cycle but I don't know what I'd do w/o temps.
Christy, so you folded it in half lengthwise? If that is so, then now I can picture it. About the canned pineapple, it will definitely be tasty, but I think I had heard somewhere that the canning process destroys that enzyme in it. (Like if you look on the jello package, you can use canned pineapple in it but if you use fresh or frozen then it will break down the gelatin and it won't "gell"). I have a bunch of bags of frozen pineapple in my freezer, and MI should have some of that too.
I'd never heard of making a dump cake w/ pineapple though... sounds interesting. What else do you put in it with that?
Damiarayne, about counting PG bellies... a few cycles ago in my 2WW, I was at Walmart and I kept saying to myself "Ok if I see 5 pg bellies then that is a good sign that I am pg too" lol. Well I think I saw 2 or 3, and of course BFN that cycle. :P
saskiasmom, did the wind die down yet?
marie, if I remember correctly i think it's the other way around for temps... it goes down if you get up earlier and goes up if you sleep in later.
pnuts, fingers crossed for you.
I had a weird dream last night.... dreamed that my boobs were two different sizes. Yeah I know that most women have two slightly different sized boobs ANYWAY, but my left boob was normal and my left was sortof... deflated. LOL. Like if you had blown up a balloon, left it blown up for a while, and then let all the air out, but the deflated balloon is still a little stretched out and not all "new" like a never-been-blown-up balloon... THAT is what I dreamed my right boob was like. LOL. It was so tiny. It was also sortof like a "new" boob... like when you were a teen or preteen and first started developing... it was a little training bra boob. But my left boob was normal so who knows. :P
Anyway hope that gave a laugh to some of you.
I haven't done any more sewing yet but I did finally manage to buy the bridesmaid's dress fabric. I am going to sew it out of regular fabric first though in case I need to make any fitting adjustments. But I need to finish DH's pants first... he bought a few secondhand a while back but they all needed to be hemmed. I hemmed one pair finally the other day but it looked a little short, and it was but only by an inch or so... it looks good if he stands up but turns into high waters if he sits down. I think I am going to order some fabric this weekend too and try to get motivated to finish both the "fitting shell" bridesmaid's dress and the REAL bridesmaid's dress before that fabric comes in. So I need you all to cheer me on w/ that. :P
My cycle is plugging right along. No, I won't give you any hints about where I REALLY am... you all will just have to wait to catch up. :P Although I am thinking that the CM on the chart is just some of AF's old luggage that she left at my house. :P There is just too much of it for this early in my cycle to be "real" CM ya know?
I did manage to get a couple of thank you notes sent out to state senators today though. Our state says that midwifery w/o a CNM credential is a felony and groups have been trying to get it changed the past few years... we are making great progress this year.
I sent DH's and my Christmas pic in w/ the TY notes. :P
