Let this be the very last 2ww for all of us! We will all move to the pg board and do our chatting in the May/June babies chat!!! I am looking forward to seeing all the BFPs which are going to be posted here over the next few weeks!<br><br>
Today is 8dpo for me, and I am still sure I am pregnant (as usual in this phase of my cycle :) It just is too early to pee on a hpt to confirm. But my breasts have been tingly intermittently. And this morning I felt pretty nauseous. Most likely it's just all in my head, but who cares, I am enjoying the happy anticipation anyway :)<br><br>
Yesterday I did the salsa canning, and froze some peppers. Then life got in the way of doing more. So today, I think I'll make tomatillo salsa, and I have some beans and zucchini to freeze. My cucumbers are flooding us, so I better learn how to make pickles too! :)<br><br>

Hello all!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
I'm here too...7 dpo. Feeling good (pretty crampy yesterday and the day before, which I'm hoping is our little babe burrowing in for the long haul). Having a great LONG weekend with DH. We babysat our friends' 4yo DS yesterday. Took him to the zoo....out to dinner...over to our house to see the sheep and chickens and then back home. It was so fun and ahhhhh....my DH is going to be such a great daddy!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
So....anyone feel like taking over "the list" for September??? Once you get the first one made, it's really easy...you just cut and paste and keep moving the list down and update as wonderful ladies arrive, graduate, or head back to the pre-O for another lap. Actually I could even e-mail you the August list so you'd have everyone's charts and then it would be REALLY easy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Just let me know!<br><br>

I'm here too!!! 7dpo, just like you, mama-wanna-be!!! Maybe we should be testing buddies.<br><br>
I have no pg symptoms whatsoever. I'm not feeling very hopeful, but am excited to test on Wed and Thurs.<br><br>
I cannot believe it's Sept. My best friend is due with her first child, a little girl she's naming Avery Lisa (yes, after me!!!!!), on Sept 22nd. She's 37 weeks today. I'm so excited for that.<br><br>
Everyone take care.<br><br>

Hello! I'll start my 2ww on thursday. I'm suppose to o sometime between sunday and thursday but I think I may have o'd earlier because I had the stab in my belly button area that I always get(I use to think I was having an appendix problem when I was younger until someone informed me that it was probably just me oing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ) I was a little crampy yesterday and today so maybe.... we shall see in a couple of weeks!<br>
Good Luck to all!<br>

Wow so much has happened since I left on my camping trip. It took me awhile just to read all the threads and catch up...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><br><br>
Congratulations to Kristine and Elphada! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Welcome Sandi and Brandi! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><br><br>
Lisa, I hope those temps are back up tomorrow and it was just a false alarm! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Hang in there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><br><br>
Karen! I need to freeze some zucchini also. Do you just slice it and freeze it in baggies? I am such a novice gardener!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: Looking forward to see you pg with a healthy, sticky baby this month!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
Lisa, that is so nice that your friend is naming her baby after you. You must mean alot to her! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> I have no pregnancy symptoms either.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: Has me a little worried about getting another BFN. On the other hand I didn't have any pg. symptoms when I got pg. last fall either so who knows! Good luck and <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"> to you too!<br><br>
Erin, sounds like you had a wonderful day with the little tike! My dh surprises me sometimes when he is around children! He was an only child and really "scared" of kids when we were first married. Now he is so cute with them!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> When do you plan on testing?<br><br>
I am 11 DPO and trying to wait until Friday to test. I figure <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/af.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="aunt flo"> should show by then if she is going to. My usual lp is 10 days but I am taking prog. this cycle so I am trying to not get too excited about the possibilities yet! Does anyone know if <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/af.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="aunt flo"> will show even if I keep taking the prog. or will I have to stop taking it first? No preg. symptoms either. What I would do for a little nausea! :LOL<br><br>

Naturegirl, you have more will power than I do. I would have already tested if i were you. I hope this is your month. I don't know about the progesterone. That's a good question.<br><br>
Yes, it is sweet that my best friend is naming her baby after me. We've been best friend's for 17 years. In Jr High we promised each other that if we ever had girls we would name the middle names after each other. Even though Lisa isn't the best middle name, she's doing it anyway. Her name is Kelly, which goes well with most names that I like for a girl. If I have another boy this time, I would even consider using Kelly as his middle name, if I can convince my dh to let me...lol.<br><br>
This 2ww is killing me!!! ARGH!!!!<br><br>

Hi all....<br>
I am not feeling extremely hopeful today. I am either 8 or 9dpo. Not positive. My face started breaking out yesterday, and I *think* I am feeling a little crampy. <sigh> I was doing so good not obsessing until yesterday. Oh yeah, my temps dropped quite a bit too <a href="http://fertilityfriend.com/home/2aa51" target="_blank">Donna's Chart</a>, even went below coverline. I dunno....I will probably try to test Wednesday and hope for the best. On the plus side, last month I felt nauseous from the day I o'ed until af started, which was a bummer, but haven't had any of that this month.<br><br>
Karen, I love your positive energy! I hope this is your last month here and you get a BFP soon!<br><br>
Cheryl, no advice about the progesterone, but I am so glad to see you on 11dpo!!!!! Excellent!<br><br>
Sandi, I noticed your baby was born 1/02...my youngest was too! His b-day is 1/16, when is yours?<br><br>
Lisa, very cool about your friend's baby! I love the name Avery. My best friend is named Kelly Audene. I love the name Audene, and when I had a boy, I gave him the middle name of Austin, after her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Btw, dh and I took the kids to see "Finding Nemo" yesterday. Anyone else see it? If you did, did you notice the fish in the tank, she called herself "Aunt -something-(I can't remember her name right now)" Anyway, she told Nemo that her reflection was her sister, Flo....Aunt Flo! I about died. I told dh what it meant, and he thought it was funny. I wonder if it was done on purpose. :LOL<br><br>
Okay, gotta get the kidlets ready for school tomorrow.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"> all around!

Cheryl, freezing zucchini (or any other summer squash) is really easy. You cut it in slices, or chunks, whichever you prefer. Then blanch it for 3 minutes. Cool it down quickly, and put it in baggies to freeze. That's all. I love eating my own zucchini in the middle of winter, makes me think back to high summer, warm and lazy days, sunshine, and gardening.<br><br>
Today I froze 2 bags of green beans, and started cucumber relish. I had to do something with those cucumbers that I kind of ignored, but which kept on growing anyway LOL. They were HUGE! Not really good salad material anymore, but excellent for cucumber relish. Yummy!!<br><br>
Erin, strong implantation vibes your way!!!<br><br>
Lisa (lucky one), this is early to have pregnancy symptoms, you could still very well be pregnant anyway!! I'll be hopeful for you!<br><br>
Lisashepp, I hope you will see a BFP tomorrow!!!<br><br>
Childofthemoon, welcome back to the 2ww! A birthday is a perfect day to get a BFP, I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!<br><br>
Sandi, welcome to you too! I hope that this will be your month!<br><br>
Cheryl, 11dpo sounds good to me!!!!! I know that for some people progesterone does not suppress af, but for others it does. Some people do test at 14dpo, and if they get a BFN, they stop the progesterone. Maybe talk to your healthcare provider and see what he/she recommends.<br><br>
Donna, I am going to consider today's drop an implantation dip, until proven otherwise. The cramping would be consistent with that!<br><br>
I have definite bouts of nausea, but most likely it's just me talking myself into pregnancy. I am hopeful, and feeling really peaceful about this cycle. Looking forward to meeting my deer baby soon!<br><br>
Karen

Ssssshhhh! I am not supposed to be here but I have a slight chance of being pg this month. I don't chart or anything, I am either 8 or 9 dpo. Today my breast are very, very tender. Not helpful when you have an active toddler jumping all over you. Anyhow, I just have one test and don't want to buy more so if <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/af.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="aunt flo"> does not show by next Monday morning I will test. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"> to all of you, I hope we all have <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"> this month.

Welcome Trish!<br><br>
And thank you ladies for the warm welcome back! I am hoping this is the month! If not, that will be ok too, some major things have come our way and morning sickness may not be so nice to have around. Our landlord is selling and we need to be out in two months <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> We REALLY like living here, and I have been feng shuing this house into shape and now this news! So we may have to move into town, which will have some advantages, but we are so use to living out in the country. Rentals are so expensive around here, we may end up in a teeny tiny place. All well. Hoped we could buy this place, we could have afforded the price last year with this year's income, but this house is way out of our league now. Time for a new adventure. I just really dislike moving, we just did this whole moving thing last year. Sorry, I am off topic, just sad and overwhelmed and stressed and excited all at once. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sticky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sticky"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/belly.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="belly"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/baby.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="baby"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> to all!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome Trish!<br><br>
Brandi ~ Aw...sorry about your news. I know moving IS stressful. But there is something wonderful waiting for you and your family....a building or a neighborhood that needs your energy and has much to give you!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
My temps dipped yesterday and popped back up today...implantation dip??? Oooooo....I hope so. I am really trying to stay detached this cycle. Just kind of watching the whole thing unfold.<br><br>
Sorry dpo buddies....I can't test with ya tomorrow. I tend to have a long-ish LP so I'm going to wait until after AF is due. Can't take seeing another BFN and wondering if it's just because I tested too soon, ya know?<br><br>
Sooo....she's due on Sunday and I'll probably test on Monday. We are celebrating my grandmother's 80th birthday on Sunday. If I am <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/belly.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="belly"> I would be too excited and have to tell EVERYONE at the party (but I don't want to take away from my grandmother's day) so I will wait until at least Monday -- and then if I am I will call my grandmother first to give her a belated birthday gift! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><br><br>

Lucysmama, YES I want to POAS tomorrow morning with ya!!!<br><br>
I'm either 8dpo today or 7dpo today. FF says 7, but I say 8. Anyhoo, I've got 4 FRER test upstairs just calling my name. If I start testing tomorrow, then I've got enough tests to get me through Saturday which would make me 11 or 12 days post O. So, if I test every day starting tomorrow and don't get a +, then I'll just wait for the big red meanie.<br><br>
Gotta run!!!<br><br>
Babydust to everyone!!!<br><br>
