Beth: your chart looks awesome!! When are you testing again? Pretty sure you've got a little bean cookin in there! Got the emoticons ready to go! :D

Teresa: glad your back is more stable now, I hope it holds up for your evening tonight, sounds fun!! Oh and your opk is looking very close to positive!! Glad you'll get some BD in! Hope this is your BFP cycle!

AFM: I'm not giving up overall (never!) but for this cycle, I think the end is near...starting to feel like I do before AF, and there's still that ugly chart of mine! It's ok though..while I was obviously hoping it would happen this cycle and we could avoid fertility treatments (mostly that dreaded HSG), I'm ready to move forward and get the party started already :wink:

Yah apples one more sleep before you get your results (atleast here it is, not sure what the time differnce is) And i reckon it will all be good news!

JJ you still got your cold? When is Af due, i Still think you might get your BFP this cycle!!! But on the other hand if you dont all is not lost it would be nice to find out that everything is alright, and on your way to making it alright if its not :D
What did you end up doing for DH B.Day?

Beth we need to see more sticks!!!

:af: Arrived today, which is alright, atleast now I know that I can tell when im Oing which is good and also that :af: comes smack bang 14 days after O. Also we weill be on holiday when i O this cycle, so could be a good thing right?

How was everybodys weekend?

Jenny: sorry about AF :(..but I think it's a GREAT thing you will be on vacation when you're oing! You'll be so relaxed and happy! I'll bet you catch the egg this time!

I still have my cold or whatever it is but it's definitely improved..AF is due on Tuesday or Wednesday (I'm now betting on Tuesday bc of today's temp..)
For DH's bday we ended up just going out for a nice lunch AND a nice dinner, lol! We are total foodies and spend most of our money on it! Though we do cook most of the time so that helps :wink:

Speaking of food, Apples, I want pudding pops now daaangit! I remember those, they were delicious!

Beth: in your own words "don't give up yet Missy!" it ain't over til it's over...why the open circle for your temp? Are you going to test again?

AFM: temp shot up, but I think it may just be a rise before the fall, leading me to think I'll have a 13 day LP this time around. See, I love that this chart has done this to me(insert sarcastic face), i feel like today's temp is a total tease, lol! Now I don't want to POAS and instead, live in the land of "maybe". But I will prob cave and pee...we'll see :roll:

Good Morning everyone.

JJ: Hoping that :af: doesn't show up! :) FIngers crossed. Have you tested again yet?

Beth: Your temp went down a little.. but by looking at that overlay chart it still looks way higher than it was the last few cycles! Don't give up yet! Have you tested again?

Jenny: Sorry about AF. :( But yes.. great to be O'ing on a holiday..as long as its a nice relaxing holiday. :)

Apples: HOpe you are hanging in there.. not stressing too much about the test results. I will be checking tomorrow to see how the results are. :) HOpe everything is where you want it. :)

Teresa: Glad you back is feeling better.. and YOU GOT ME for a sec with that pee stick.. I was scrolling and saw a pic with two lines! and I got excited for a minute.. then I realized it was an OPK lol :lol: Thanks for posting though.. maybe you will get an early O! :) That would be exciting. Hope you had fun going out for the night. I always like a fun night out.

AFM: Feeling a little better sickness wise. My ears finally popped today! They have been plugged for like a week due to this cold. it was crazy. TOday my throat is just a little sore due to hacking so much yesterday (chest congestion)
Had a little moment yesterday while browsing Facebook. I have quite a few people I know that are PG.. and as much as I love reading about their pregnancies.. sometimes its hard.. My SIL is due end of Sept with her 4th, my step sister is due end of July with her 4th, a girl I used to work with had her baby 2 weeks before me, and I have about 5 other people on my facebook friend list that are currently PG.. UGH. Just makes me remember that I should be sharing stories about my little guy. Boo. :cry: I just try and focus on the future and the positives of the pregnancy.. like all the crazy kicks, the loads of ultrasound pics I have and even the 30 second ultrasound clip I got of him and he even smiled, the fact that he was perfect and that I got to see him and hold him.. just really sucks when I start to think that he would be over 2 months old now.. smiling, making noises.. all the fun baby stuff. Its hard and I SOOOO wish he was here and I was having sleepless nights and having to go to work exhausted. I would happily take all the complaints just to have him here. DS made a comment the other day when I took him grocery shopping with me.. there were two kid seats on the car and he made the comment "if my brother was here he could sit in the other one".. he is always so cute about it.. but I know he wishes he was here too.. even though he never actually saw him in person - he would lean against my belly and get kicked lol.. and look at all the ultrasound pics..he was very excited to be having a little brother. So I feel bad when he talks about him.. BUT............like I said.. I just try and remember the good stuff and try and focus on the future and know that hopefully someday soon we can try again. Ok.. done venting. :) I swear I never believed people when they say they think of their lost loved one EVERY day.. i used to think. yeah right.. it gets so hectic and busy in life... seems like there would be at least ONE day where it didn't get thought of.. but NOW I understand. I swear.. everyday I think of him. There are SO many moments where even if its just a quick drift by in my head.. but I think of him. and in my car I have a cd..I call it my "cry cd".. because I put a few songs on there that make me think of him .. and when I need a good cry I listen to it and it oddly enough makes me feel better to get it out. One of my favorite songs is Glory Baby by Watermark...oh and "I will not say goodbye" by Danny Gokey.. both Sad.. but good songs and exactly how I feel. ugh. I sure hope this TTC thing comes soon.
OOp.. well I need to get doing some stuff here at work. Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend.. and can't wait to see some more pee sticks!! :)

Hi All,

Just a quickie :) I'll do personals later. We're going on a "Brunch Cruise" for my mom's B-Day today. Had a garage sale yesterday, the weather sucked, but all in all it was a good day, we got to clean out the garage and that always feels good!

Sorry Jenny about the :bfn:
Lets hope JJ & Beth have some shy :bfp: "s!

Nicole- I wish I could say I knew when, emotionally, you could feel better again. Because, to this day, despite only losing an 8w3d, not a healthy fullterm baby, I still think about it everyday. And I am a seriously busy woman at work. I cannot say I feel your pain, because we did not experience the same type of grief. But in my comparison, it is still so hard to see all these pg ladies and women with newborns knowing my LO would be here, thinking last week would have been my first mother's day, I could have been exhausted and so in love. ....But, it's really great that you can focus on the positives and think about the great moments you had and the joy he brought to you, even in his short time with you. About DS, that is a tough one, it seems he has a somewhat positive outlook and I hope he can find peace as you and DH do as well. I am so sorry for your pain and grief and that you feel ready for ttc soon. We seemed to have good luck right at the same time. Maybe when you're ready again we'll be DD buddies again.

JJ- Ugh, those temps are such teases. My chart usually does the same thing right before plummeting. BUT, there's def still that maybe factor! That could be the corpus luteum rescuing the progesterone levels!!!!! And the BFP could still be in your very near future. But if not, just think next cycle you have so much help in store, I bet you def get that BFP either in hte next two days or next cycle!

jenny- sorry bout the witch! But that's great you know more about your cycles.

Beth- I hope that's not AF arriving and you the BFP anyway. Maybe a late ID?

Apples- oooo a brunch cruise, sounds wonderful, I hope you all have a great time.

AFM- last night was fun, got to hang out with a few friends at a new high scale club. Unfortunately, my friend got real sick and had to leave early (not from drinking, it was something she ate and she was wearing this ridiculously tight corset). I felt bad for her, but sure she's feeling better now. And neither DH nor I got very drunk at all, which is a plus (and an oddity I might add). DH had to work today, so I had to rein him in. But we were both sober enough to want to BD when we got home :wink: :oops: But I always get confused with this, so let me know what you guys would do- since we technically didn't get back and into things until after 3 am- would you input the BD as yesterday (PM) or today (AM)? Not that it matters at all, just curious for accuracy sake. I put it as last night

Nicole: I too, have never experienced your kind of loss and still can't even wrap my head around it..you seem like such a strong woman and such a wonderful mother to your DS. Wishing you all the best and I am really excited for when you get to TTC again.

Apples: oooh a brunch cruise sounds great! Happy birthday to your mom!! I'm a big fan of tauruses ;)

Teresa: Glad that you and DH didn't get too drunk to BD!! As for your question about when to put the BD in, I run in to this problem too...But I'm a night owl and usually don't go to bed til like 12:30/ 1 AM or so, so if it is around then, I will mark it as that day...but anytime after, I would mark the AM for the next day...so I would say in your case (since I doubt you stay up past 3 normally) I would actually mark it as AM for today, because it was so late. But I'm no expert!

Thanks for your encouragement! I'm going to have to google about that corpus luteum rescue mission you're describing lol! I did test, and BFN pretty sure. I think these wondfos like to keep you guessing like those dollar trees...I did feel a weird cramp yesterday, kinda dullish..I guess maybe could be implantation? Kind of late at 11 DPO, not banking on it..You're right though, next cycle I've got all kinds of help going on, so if this one is a bust, I just hope AF will show soon and not be a tease!

JJ- I think I see something in that, but it's a little too close to the control line, so it's probably just line-o-vision. Sorry.
Thanks for the insight on the BDing. I'll have to change it later.

Took another OPK and it looks almost identical to yesterday's. Maybe a little darker, or maybe a smidgeon lighter but I think the control is a little lighter too, so kinda the same. Who knows? Here's a pic- take a gander if you wish.

Teresa: I always get a line on those opks, but I figured out that my true positive is when the test line comes up fast and darkens quickly. I have gotten progressions with other brands but not with this one..last cycle, my test line beat the control line, so there was no guessing!

Your sticks are definitely not positive yet but could be soon...especially if you are having other signs (cp and cm)

Teresa: :) I'd consider it a PM session :) I think your positive OPK is near! Way to have some spermies in there as a welcoming committee!


JJ: Here's hoping :af: isn't a tease this time around, but if she is lets hope its until 2012! I'm super excited for your next cycle if this is a bust anyway! And YES pudding pops are fantastic...oh how I miss them. Thanks for reading my blog!


Nicole: Someday soon is just around the corner, right? No one can take away the bad, but it sounds like you have a great support system, and a pretty awesome cry-CD. Facebook is chalk full of preggos...I "gave it up" for Lent and I'll admit it was nice! I hope that with each day everything gets to be a little more bearable :) Good news is your ears popped. I love that feeling. :hugs:


Jenny: Sorry about the wicked :af: BUT vacation at O time sounds IDEAL! 8) And yes, you were right, 1 more sleep! :) till I FINALLY get my results, I'm so impatient.


Beth: I'm hoping with Teresa....late ID?


AFM: Had a fun time on the brunch cruise~ the weather sucked, but the food was yummmy. I also got to hang out with my niece & nephew, they're too cute for words. Like I said tomorrow is results day! FX'd they're normal. If not normal, fixable :) HEY we're almost at 20 pages! Yippee, glad I met you gals :grouphug:

Apples: KUP on your results!!!

:)

AFM: temp coming down now, I'm guessing since it wasn't a big drop that I'll have AF on Wednesday..although, I have been feeling crampy so who knows, she could come earlier, which is fine! One day sooner to start clomid. I hope I don't turn evil on that stuff! Lol.
