Cute pics! I think it is great that you are on here! My DH would die before even reading a post on here. He let the TTC up to me to just give him the cue when to BD. He did like looking at my chart now and then and would ask how soon we can test but that is about the extent of his involvement.

You have to host the pics somewhere, like photobucket.

Get the direct link code from photobucket or whoever your host site is, then highlight the text in your siggy that you want linked and click the 'globe with a chain' button. Then paste the link into the box that pops up. And....viola!

Add the pics like you added your chart.

It surely did and don't call me Shirley.
Although you linked it to your entire album instead of just that one photo. So people can skim through all of your photos. Hope there's nothing private in there.

Nice pic. That's a cool runner BTW. Nifty idea. Y'all must be rich. Kidding.

Oh wow it did. You're so pretty, and your hubby is pretty hot too:



I gotta go down to the hospital. They won't give me my results over the phone. I live right down the street though so I'm walking.: My son is taking the longest nap ever! I hope he wakes up soon.

Oops!! LOL Nothing private in there except my bach party pics!! LOL Guess I'll go change that link.

Thanks! Actually, I painted the runner by hand MYSELF! I'm very proud of it. It took me 10 hours.

ETA: Ok, I fixed it! The pics are smaller but they're by themselves now.

Anxiously waiting to hear from you! Hoping to hear your levels are awesome!

I had to go & do photos in my siggy too.

I don't have any fancy wedding photos though :, b/c we ended up going to the Justice of the Peace (my fault... I got too stressed trying to plan a big wedding & changed my mind at the last minute).

You both are so gorgeous!

Can't wait to hear the results, CB!

LOL well thank you! The first pic is pretty recent too - like 3 months ago.
My hair is almost to my waist now - the longest it's ever been.

Haha! Thanks! My wedding photographers were AMAZING. I did a separate shoot with them back in July and they were all excited because I did "the eye makeup" as they called it. LOL

I was going through photos trying to find some for our siggy. Found one of us on the motorcycle. She cries everytime she sees it because she's had to stop riding since we've been TTC, we both agreed it's too risky while we're TTC, especially since I went down three weeks ago by myself because of some idiot flying down the street. I thank the stars I was alone, because I almost ALWAYS used to have her on the back.

Oh my gosh was it cold outside. My ears are hurting. The wind was terrible. My poor son. At least I have a jogging stroller that has a moving shade to block wind and the sun.

Well obviously I'm back.
The tech was kinda stupid. She didn't give me my results over the phone because she thought it was just a regular pregnancy test. I told her on the phone I just wanted the BETA. : She then told me she could have given that to me over the phone, on Friday I need to tell her it's for that...ummmm I DID over the phone!

Oh so my #'s 155

normal range!

5dpo and feeling super fine. Not crazy at all.

Had some acupuncture yesterday and it left me feeling really positive.

Hope you're all doing well

Is that bad that my stylist is just as relaxing as a massage?? I love having my hair messed with AND I look great coming out!

Hey ladies!! I've been away so long, I've missed you all! I didn't bother reading through the many pages, but I did notice some new pregnant beauties since I left:

Xixstar (Karen) 27 PG with #2 11/03/07

Sunshine4004 28 PG with #1 11/03/07

Devilish_fetish 22 PG with #1 11/11/07

Countrybound 26 TTC#2 11/13/07

So, CONGRATULATIONS!!! AND SUPER STICKY VIBES FOR ALL!!!!

Not much is new with me, I'm still waiting to O. I took soy isoflavones from days 3-7 and I had some twinges from days 10 through 14, even some spotting, but no O!! Since then I have had some issues 'down there'. I've been sore, itchy and have had more spotting - I even bled after DTD 2 nites ago (something I haven't done since the very first time I DTD). So, I'm not sure if this is from the soy or just a coincidence. I think I had some more twinges today so I'm expecting to ovulate around cd 25/26 as usual. I hope I didn't mess up my system even more than it already is. Oh well. That's it for me

As, I said, I didn't bother reading through the pages, so I hope all is well with everyone. I'll try and catch up!

So, what does that mean? What are they measuring? I've never gotten that far, as you can tell, and I haven't been around long enough to catch other discussions of the BETA (what does that stand for?).

Thanks

It's just the blood test. They check to make sure the HCG is doubling like it should. I have to go in again on Friday and get another blood draw.

honestly? I don't see the need either. I mean, yes *sometimes* there are situations that pop up where you may need to get your blood drawn, but most of the standard prenatal testing are pretty bogus on the grand scheme of things. If you don't want it, the don't consent to it. There are a bunch of women who UP and don't do any of the blood testing and they are almost always fine.


besides if it makes you that stressed, would it really be "the best" for your baby to have to deal with all of those unnecessary stress hormones?

If it makes you feel better, I won't be getting any testing next time around.

Hey everyone - I really appreciate all the support you've given me! Sorry I don't have time (yet) to respond individually as I'm trying to get ready to leave for work - don't worry, I *do* have internet access there.

I don't know what's going on. I got another BFN this morning, with FMU - not even the faintest line. But I still have high temps, and absolutely no sign of AF. I woke up this morning really feeling pregnant. I woke up early b/c I couldn't hold my pee any longer lol, so I took my temp about 45 min early, but I used the temp adjuster on FF. My nipples are still very sore & tingly for like the 5th or more day in a row, and that's NOT normal for me. No cramping still, no spotting, creamy cm, and my cervix is still HFC. :
