I'm using the same brand as you and had one that looked just a little bit lighter than your top one. I just figured it was negative and haven't taken another one. Thats a big color difference though so maybe your surge was somewhere in between?

Re: TTC While Breastfeeding. New Year, Fresh Start!

Abby-maybe some left over blood? But that's very strange!

Hilary-It's possible, but I took another OPK and it's dark again! I'm throwing the flag in. I'm in the WHATEVER mood!

I'm miss being pregnant. I miss the excitement. When I'm pregnant I feel SO close to DH and I just feel like I'm glowing. I LOVE the anticipation of the end. Always wondering if that cramp is gonna lead to a contraction!
We are planing on staying team green next time since I have everything from my DS and DD. We'll be buying a new car seat since I bought DS and DD new Britax Cowmooflauge car seats, so I want the cowmooflauge infant seat.
And...I'm gonna try for that home birth. I'm gonna do it unassisted since even if I did hire a midwife it's VERY likely that she won't make it, or there will be a lot of false alarms if I called her every time contractions started. I'm gonna stay with my Midwife/OB practice, but try to just do it at home, then see my midwife after the delivery to check out. She's cool like that!
Dear God...I'm ready...but please grant me patience!

Re: TTC While Breastfeeding. New Year, Fresh Start!

Off topic ?
Is anyone in here religious?
DH is old school catholic, and I was raised that way and did all the steps and we go to Church sometimes, but sometimes I just don't feel like our church is "involved"
I want to find some good bible study book and kids books. I want to learn to be a better wife and learn to let go and let DH take the wheel sometimes. I'm such a control freak and a Worry wart, and sometimes I just need to trust God that things will be OK.

Sorry to sound preachy, but I'm just feeling like I need it tonight!

I'm Christian, but have a few catholic friends who'd be glad to answer your questions if you want a catholic perspective. I'm currently reading "the excellent wife". But honestly, there's nothing like the bible

I miss being pregnant for all the same reasons! I did a homebirth last time and it was awesome! I'm definitely doing another one.

So I had some serious EWCM today...I'm gonna do an opk later.

Re: TTC While Breastfeeding. New Year, Fresh Start!

Hilary-Good luck with that OPK. The only thing that home birth freaks me out, is the placenta delivery. I have FAST labors! My last labor was only 27min. I was having on-off contractions about every 5-10min, not very painful. (still able to talk, walk through them) for a few hours, then water broke and BAM, baby came out 27min later! Labor before that was 2.5hrs.
I just know nothing about the placenta and I'm so scared of bleeding afterwards, and how do I know if I'm bleeding too much, or if the placenta is retained....stuff like that. I'd rather just have my baby, in MY bed, with MY family, then just stay in bed and bond and nurse my baby.

I called the store where we bought our couch and the estimated delivery is the 18th. UGH. I want it NOW! Although, they said it's possible it can come earlier, but that's the projected date!.....Sigh....
