Good morning ladies.
Sharun: I hope you have a wonderful time in Thailand, fun, fun, fun, and relaxation.
Now, let me apologize that this is general health related and not ttc.
Now a quick question: Someone had strep a few weeks ago and I have never had it, but I have had some wicked cases of tonsilitis. I have pain on the right side of my throat and in the same ear. I looked at my throat this morning and it doesn't really look like white splotches, but kind of mottled, bright red in some areas, lighter pink areas, etc. No fever. I think it would be more white blistery looking spots, right? It stinks b/c no matter what I can't get to the doctor until Tuesday at the earliest.TIA.

Oh yuck, to be sick over Christmas. My dh had a sore throat and fever for 10 days that just cleared up early this week. Originally he was diagnosed with strep (angry red throat) but it turns out he didn't actually have it, so we didn't know what it was. He was on abx and eventually got better, so it could either have been viral or bacterial. So now I don't know what strep looks like! But I can tell you I learned the white patches are pus (sorry TMI) so maybe they wouldn't show up till later? I hope you don't have strep but if you do it might be worth a visit to urgent care or ER.

Good luck, I hope it goes away quickly on its own.

Sabo- I have one recommendation, raw garlic! Even if it is strep, the garlic will kill the infection. We use it around here all the time. I don't remember the last time someone around here had to take antibiotics for anything. We have used it to treat strep, upper respiratory infection, sinus infection, even a couple of nasty bouts of mastitis. If you catch it early, you can get results quickly.

There is, as of yet, no September 2007 DDC. August didn't get its own until this month, so it might be a little while before September gets its own.


Until then, I wanted to let you September ladies know that there is a thread in the main "DDC" forum for September 2007 Mamas to check in and get to know their fellow September 2007 DDC-ers to be.

See you there!

Changes made to here

Christina - Yay for ovulation! : that you catch that egg!

Megin - Please oh please. I really hope this is it for you and Katie. Isn't is crazy how much those temps can control our mood? Just remember it isn't over 'til AF shows. There are tons and tons of "less than perfect" charts on FF : for you both!

Matt's Mom - I was wondering the EXACT same thing about being "On the Fence" and I am the Thread Keeper . I think it means not trying, not preventing? Kind of a whatever will be, will be position. But, honestly, I am not exactly sure. Maybe on of our "Fencers" will pop in and let us know.

noordinaryspider - Good luck. Glad AF is staying away. : for your Christmas BFP

Kelly1216 - That sounds like EWCM to me! Nice and fertile. Be sure to jump DH and take full advantage. Have fun

Nicole! - . Eager to hear your news. Doesn't sound like it was the best news, but maybe there is hope? Good luck with O. I did OPKs for the first time this month and found that I also got a nice fade in effect.

AugustLia23 - good luck and lots of . Go swimmers go!

Sabo - No fever = no need to abx (at this point). The garlic idea is a good one. You might also want to try salt water gargles and spoonfuls of honey (just not at the same time, 'cause that would be gross). Do you have allergies at all? Sometimes my throat gets very red and irritated from all of the gunk dripping down the back of it. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Okay, DH and I have a plane to catch and need to leave here is 2 hours. I STILL haven't packed ('cause laundry isn't 100% done...ack, why am I such a procrastinator? BAD). Anway, I probably will not be able to get back online until tomorrow. So, this will officially end my time as thread keeper. I just want to say that it has been an absolute pleasure hosting the thread this week. Moving 6 people to the BFP list was a total rush. I wish all of you that celebrate a happy and wonderful holiday. Lots of to everyone still TTC. I look forward to seeing all of you in a DDC really soon.

P.S. Since I won't be able to update the thread today. Please hold all change comments until Sabo has the new thread up and running. Thanks.

Just leaving myself a note in case people post changes from here on.

By the way, my dh just gave me a huge clove of garlic, so big in fact that I had to split it into 3 horse-pill sized chunks to swallow it all. Hopefully it helps. Oh, and garlic and milk are NOT a tasty combination.

Will someone take a look at my chart? I am getting crosshairs from FF on Wednesday, but last night I had EWCM enough to know that was what it was and to know I was off in pp when I thought it was early. :

ItyBty,

You're only 8dpo, and your usual LP is much longer than that. I wouldn't count yourself out yet, unless you start bleeding more heavily. This could be implantation spotting, as it is at the right time.

What we always do it cut the clove into pieces you can swallow easily, take them with a full 8 oz glass of water, three times a day. We take it at meal times every day until one day past symptoms. You could do it without food, but I found that it works better on my tummy to eat just after.

Hey all, I have a question. I should be able to take an early test on X-mas day-I am due to get my period on the 28th (usually a 25-26 day cycle) or so give or take a day. I am not sure when I O'd, so if I did when I think I did then I would only be a little over a week pg. We tried on the 13th, and I think I felt O pain on the 14th, so I would only be 9dpo....

1. Should I be able to take a first response test on X-mas day-11dpo

2. I am not really having any symptoms at all. No nausea, no sore breasts, I am really moody-but that could be PMS too. Should I be feeling anything at all yet? Should I bother with the test on X-mas day?

Thanks!
