MJ, I say BD every other day until you get a +OPK, then BD that day and the next two in a row. I think that is the SMEP (sperm meets egg plan). Good luck, now that you have your +OPK, start the BD party!

Thanks for all the nice comments about my bump, ladies! Ugh, I hate to mention it, but I struggle with my self-esteem - so sharing some pics is huge for me. This stems from my mother, who was always convinced people were judging her and making fun of her appearance. I know this rubbed off on me as a young girl. Thankfully, I fully realize how irrational her fears were and therefore make a conscious effort every day to not think like her. I love her, but I don't wish to follow in her footsteps by any means.

Sorry, just a little rambling insight into my world! Have a great day, ladies!

Mandi I completely understand! My baba and gido were constantly making comments on my weight growing up, and it caused me to have a lot of self esteem issues too. In fact in Feb DH and I went out to the farm to visit them, and the first thing Gido said to me was "wow - you haven't changed at all! ... well, maybe a little thicker" The man is pushing 90 so I can't really get too mad, but I'm so glad now I can go back and say "remember when you said I was fat? I was pregnant!"

You really are gorgeous though! And just think having gone through what you did, you will make sure that if you have a little girl in there you will make sure you don't do the same to her that your mother did to you!

I'm a little worried about that - I work in the beauty industry, and I'm constantly making up models and gorgeous 20 somethings, and I'm worried that one day my little girl is going to say something to me about how she doesn't feel pretty because she doesnt' look like these girls. I suppose I just have to cross that bridge when I come to it, and make sure I don't obsess about my own looks too much in front of them...
