Hi Ann! Can you add me too? I know its not monday, Sorry!
Monday Check in: Well Wed actually
Name: Mrscompgeek/Shannon
Date:10-08
Where are you at in your cycle:CD50/4dpo
Appointments:none
Symptoms if they apply:SO TIRED today!!, Cramping yesterday and the day before but today just slight twinges in my lower abs/sides, woke up with nausea this morning and OMG my nipples hurt so bad!
Testing will probably start testing Oct 14TH but if I can make myself wait not until Oct 16th.
Thoughts:Not really getting too excited yet since I have had a weird cycle and thought I ovulated 3 other times, turns out it was none of them! Although I am having symptoms that I dont normally have right now so I take it thats a good sign??

I wish I didn't have such an amazing husband and I could do what my heart wants right now which is just to run, to pack up a backpack and wander until I feel like I've found myself again. Thanks for the support I've received here over the past year and a half.
Rochelle, you will be so missed. I hope that you find the answers you are looking for.

Welcome and good luck!



AFM: AF is tiptoeing in, as expected but never welcome. Oh, and I like RRL tea with only a little sweetener if any. If I infuse it with red clover I don't usually use any sweetener.

BFN this morning.
Anyone ever try the at home male fertility tests? DH agreed to take one, I'm going to pick it up on the way home.

No thanks to the yams! hehe...I do not want twins! hehe...
But I might give that shatarvi a try and the cream ...we shall see. Hopefully I wont need to get that far...see if vitex does the trick for me first!

I take shatavari in an infusion form (with several other herbs as well). I have been taking chasteberry in powdered capsule form 'cause someone was nice enough to gift me their leftovers

Still working on my herb order. I've been working on it for over a week. I really need to just finalize and submit it.

Oh, BFN this morning. So yeah. But I'm only 9dpo, I took the test more for giggles than anything. I'm still hoping this is the month, but emotionally I am getting mean, confused, and irritable. And every month I try to remember whether I get certain symptoms as PMS, and my notes in FF never quite clue me in. It's weird.

Oh, and twins run in DH's family. I wouldn't mind twins, although I think it'd be overwhelming at first, but twins are neat.

I would just about cope with twins...I would have to. But I wouldnt be trying for them!...I would feel that would be throwing my HBAC out the window!

What if you're already prone to twins? Would it, like, double up? Oh, dear...

lol @ doubling up... I should hope not! I really wouldn't mind twins, I don't think. My MIL is a twin, and like I said, it runs in the family. My DH keeps reminding me of that :< One boy and one girl would be great because then I'd have one of each!

I just want to be pregnant, period, though. I have tried to decide if I would rather have a boy or a girl, and honestly I have no idea.

I got a BFN this morning, can't remember if I said (in the middle of a ridiculous work project so brain is swiss cheese). Tender boobs, really cranky and irritable, I want to eat everything in sight, post-O skin flareup is clearing up, but again, all this could be PMS. Though NORMALLY my face starts to break out again shortly before AF, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. The only "weird" symptom this month was the lower ab feeling, like I'd been doing crunches. Not really cramps. I'm hoping a week from now that AF still isn't here and that I have a BFP, but it's hard to be hopeful anymore, you know?

Well...I can be hopeful or I can be realistic. I am just going to have to wait and see and will probably be testing every morning until AF shows or something better! lol... I did get such a faint line at 8dpo last cycle when I was really pregnant.

: for all three of you. binkin and Ann, quit torturing your selves with HPT's at 8dpo!

I am out, AF officially arrived this morning, although I could almost call yesterday CD1 too b/c the spotting yesterday was pretty heavy. Binkin, my cherri prediction was june/boy and I have now passed june by as bfp, conceive month, and edd since I got the reading. I really hope I do not have to wait til next june now. Maybe I will ask in the prediction thread if anyone thinks I should ask her for an update.

Hey, it's NINE dpo! I only did it 'cause carrot_flowers did some silly predictions in the Den and I wanted to do it for fun. It was... less fun than could have been hoped, but honestly I didn't expect anything. If what I felt two days ago was implantation, then it'd be a while yet.

Back to work with me.

Snow~Pea, I'm sorry AF arrived yet again. You stay so positive and I don't know how, cause after a year I am ready to burst. I would say go ahead and ask her for an update, she's always gotten back to me quickly and is friendly.

That's what I told DH, but then he said, it doesn't since I get frustrated with BFNs, I just tell him to leave his logic out of it and let me be

crazy thing is our mini bulldog is a "mini" because her grandma was a boston and then I guess her dad was a frenchy...so technically she's a mutt, but shes a mini mutt so we will keep her. Your boston on the other hand is adorable he's even smaller than ours! CUTE!
