Re: ATTS: Wednesday December 30th

krista-hugs, hope the new meds work quickly.

bcc624-i only had ewcm the 2 days before o and not a ton until yesterday when i finally got a blaring +opk. Still have a bunch today though. As long as you make it to the sept. edd board with me it's cool! ha ha.

vanessa-maybe try half calf for a while...i slowly worked myself down to decaf. Yay for the gazelle! I weighed more than my dh when he was really sick with addisons (before diagnosis and medication) and it killed me...and he is 5 inches taller than me. I was 174 (9months pregannt) and he was 150. Ugh. I am usually 140 but about 145 right now after the past 10 months of heck i have been through...and he is up past 200. LOL.

AFM-dh should be home soon...wahoo!!

So, now thats both parents who have had negative comments about dh and I having another baby. I know I need to do whats best for our family but I wanted my family to be happy for me as well. I'm not sure I plan to even tell them when we do get pregnant. I don't want them to rain on my parade. KWIM?
I understand all to well! After one very rough postpartum (I hemorrhaged and needed a couple transfusions.) and a difficult 2nd pregnancy. My family is not entirely backing me having a 3rd. So and I that they will be joyful when you get your BFP!

Also, you can link my chart in my name: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/29fb1d. Good luck to those testing this week!
that this works for you!

Fingers crossed! Thanks for all the well wishes ladies!!
I think that covers it and I am so glad your puppy is all good. Our pug has terrible allergies and seems to pop up with new skin ailments all the time.

I've been on this one before, so I know it'll be better. He just better hurry up!
Hope you feel better!

Come on Egg!!!!!

AFM: boring CD 3, DH got home early so I got the house cleaned, fluff stuffed and dinner in the crockpot with time to workout . I am that the Navy big wigs make up their mind as to when DH deploys. I really would love to TTC sooner rather than later. Well I hope the rest of you are well and take care!

Re: ATTS: Wednesday December 30th

So does anyone want to venture a guess as to when I could test?? Here is a link to a pic of my chart...I only have FF basic so I think thats why I can't share the link, there isn't a share tab on there like other people's I've looked at, unless I'm just totally blind. Should I start testing ten days from CD 24? The OPK on cd12 looked slightly pos, so if it was pos on CD11, and perhaps our BD on CD13 caught the egg, then I could test sooner...of course then I don't know what is up with the pos OPK on CD24 is all about. It is so frustrating to have no idea what is going on, usually I am like clockwork. Maybe I should just take a random $tree test in a few days just for the heck of it...cause I am ATTS!

Everyone IRL just says oh don't worry about it, you are young and have plenty of time. Well that doesn't help. I want to be PG again ASAP. I know you ladies understand so thanks for your help!

ETA: OOps, I forgot to link the chart.

Then we came downstairs and my lo ate breakfast. We went into the family room to watch movies and as I was changing her she rolled on top of my arm so I've pooped on as well. Just as I was finishing up dd puked all over herself again. All I can do is laugh about it as I dragged all three of us upstairs to the tub. Its been a fun morning. Thank God for inlaws. I had my MIL and FIL stop at the store for pedialyte, crackers and bananas. Guess I won't be going anywhere today so I might as well take down the tree.

I'm a little bummed as well. My SIL found out the sex of her baby and is having her 4th boy. I commented about it to my MIL because she told me she was praying she would have another boy.

I agree with pp, if none of them are paying, raising, babysitting or making the babies, its none of their business. We have made that clear to family. We don't even get a babysitter from them when we want a date to preven the complaining of us having too many children. Instead we forlk out $10 an hr every 6 months or so!! (we rarely go out on dates!)

sorry friend!

AFM: Not much here..still DTDing even though I don't think I will O for a few more days....I have 1 opk left and don't want to waste it. I know you ladies said that the $tree ones are not good till they are as dark or darker than the testline. But when there is a light line, does that mean it detects some LH in the system? I have had them w/ no lines many times so I thought that with the light lines that meant that I was gearing up?

I think a light line means your'e either gearing up or already did. DTD can't hurt anything

But I got my Gazelle today! have to put it together but I really need to start using it asap!! dh and I were talking about our weight and I am about 20#'s heavier than him He's 2" taller than me. sigh.

Brandie~ I feel for you and the wonky cycles hope they straighten out

Re: ATTS: Wednesday December 30th

Rachael- we mix a pkg of reg and decaf in a lrg container. The problem is I drink 3-4 lg cups!! lol Maybe that's why I have the headaches. I don't drink soda or reg tea either. (only raspberry leaf) I just finished putting the gazelle together though. Both DH and I are overweight. But I need to lose 90#'s!!! 70 would be ok too. DH said we'd have 16 kids if we lost our weight, (cause we'd be DTD all the time. lol )

Brandi- LOL that's ok ! My hat is looking pretty sad right now. I obviously can't count stiches to do pretty ribbing!!

ok

DH told me the other day "well i know you've gained weight, but your butt is still flat as a pancake" lol geez thanks hun

AFM: Last night I finished knitting a super cool pair of felted slippers and felted them. So excited how they turned out. Now on to a vintage hat as my next project.


Is it bad I also made a pair of longies? I hope I am not just being too optimistic and this ttc journey ends up with a baby at some point
