Hello my sweet little Bloomers!
I wanted to stop by & catch up on my personals before I take Rose-Rose for our jog.

Preeti I have been thinking about you so much over these past few days. I can not even begin to imagine what you are going through, or how your heart must be breaking. I know in times like this, it is easy to think that God is punishing you, but sweety that is not the case. There is no rhyme or reason why God does what he does, but just know it is all in His plan. Just know that God is with you! I will be thinking & praying for you & DH over the next few days. Please check in when you can! We love you sweets!

Di AF was very light today, so I'm sure she will be out later tonight :) Yay for the +OPK! Looks like you've got some BD'ing of your own to do! Now, hop to it!

Tessa Love the little bump pic! :)

As for the rest of you, I love you all :hugs: & I could not make this journey with out you!

Hi ladies


Firstly I Preeti I'm so so sad to hear your news. It is truly terrible and my thoughts are with you and DH. I'm sure it's no consolation but as the other girls have said the big guy has a plan fr us all and unfortunately this is part of it. Just know that we are all here for you as and when you are ready.

Secondly I've just had a major breakdown reading through the pages of posts I've missed. It dawned on me that this may never happen...I have one ovary that works and I don't want to hinder Gary's chance of having a family. I began cry and he told me it would all be fine...which didn't really help. So I cried some more...to which he told me again that everything was fine and that I didn't know for sure I only had one that worked (I do but I just let him say it) and the he told me to 'keep my chin up and my boobs out'...I nearly wet myself from laughing.

Im so glad that we have all managed to find these truly fabulous men who no matter what, even in the deepest of our sadness can cheer us up with the stupidest of things

Exciting time this weekend off to a family wedding so going to let my hair down and have some drinks and a shimmy...been a while since I've been to a good parts away and his family are quite the party animals so it will be a very fun evening.

Again much love to Preeti my darling.

Apologies to everyone else for lack of personals but there was far too much for me to catch up on whilst using the iPad in bed!

Hello Chicas, Just popping in to say to Di that on my 2nd OPK of the day (and only the second one I've done this cycle) I got a big ol smiley face. Which means...you and I are going to have twins! LOL Let's do it.

I am shocked, it is only CD 16 for me and I never earlier than CD 19. I had a super low temp this am and have been bloated all day so I was suspicious. The OPK from this am was almost positive which surprised me.

So BD begins tonight! Thankfully we rested last night. Send your baby dust! Half to me and half to DI!!!!

:jump: :jump: :jump:

BBL for personals, back to work for me.

Di & Faith I've been reading a lot about Vitex, but would love to hear about it 1st hand. I know you are just starting to take it Faith, but Di, what changes have you noticed?

Can I snag this at the drug store? Or do I need to order it on-line?

Thanks luvs!

Claire, so sorry to hear you're going through a rough patch. I know TTC can wreak havoc on us mentally and emotionally. I wish it was super easy, but for most couples it is not. :(. Let's put a positive spin on this - if you have one functioning ovary, rejoice! It can produce an eggie and make a :shh: !

Di and Amber, BD, BD, BD! :jump: I love hearing about the + OPK's!

Tessa, that bump is growing, and you look beautiful!

AFM: Just signed us up for a birthing center tour at our hospital online...and of course, I burst into tears doing it. Really? Me and my adorably goofy husband visiting the place I'll most likely give BIRTH? The hospital is brand new, and the maternity floor is supposed to be amazing - I can't wait to see it. This still just doesn't seem real! :omg:

Hello fellow TTCer's!!

Preeti- I am so saddend by what you must be going through. I agree with what Jillian said. God is not punishing you and He will bring you through this stronger than you were before. We don't understand why these things happen to good people. He does have a plan for you even if you can not see it now. Not that it makes it any easier, but remember that your sweet little baby will be resting in the arms of Jesus completely whole and well, no pain or suffering! You can find comfort and peace in talking to God about it. Praying for you

Amber & Di-congrats on the +opk!! Wish I was joining you!

Jillian- I have been taking Fertilaid since I started charting. Fertilaid has vitex, B6, folic acid and some other good stuff in it. I order it from fairhavenhealth.com. Some of our natural food stores carry vitex here in PA, but Fertilaid can only be ordered online. It is kinda hard to tell if it is making a difference for me or not since a couple things happened around the same time. I got prayed over, I started charting, and I started taking Fertilaid at about the same time. I give the credit to God but I did notice that my periods while still irregular are more regular than they use to be. And I never got sore boobs during TWW but now I do and a test confirmed I have good levels of progesterone! Again, I'm not sure if it was the vitex or not. I'm still taking it and I'm going to start on Maca too.

AFM- I an on day 16 and no sign of O yet. Hopefully soon, but I'm not stressing about it. I've been really busy in my garden. I'll have to post a pic soon. I LOVE gardening! We are still picking strawberries every morning and my peas are blooming so I'll have fresh peas soon. Holiday weekend coming up and we are taking our son to the Philly zoo. It is supposed to be a hot weekend.(in the upper 80's)

Sorry I didn't get back here last night! Thankfully after I got home from work I never left the bedroom ;)

Ang It looks like your O is coming- I stalked your chart. Do you OPK twice a day? I have always gotten my first positive in the afternoon or evening- after a negative in the morning. Hope it happens soon and we are all in the tww together- it is much more fun that way :)
I'd love to see pics of your garden!! I am struggling with mine. We were away 5 days and the plants outside got baked while the indoor ones are looking pretty pathetic too. The only ones that look strong are my tomatoes and my sunflowers.

Di FX your temp spike happens tomorrow! I have a good feeling this month. Especially after seeing that if we conceive this cycle our EDD is Feb 14th :) Isn't it too much of a coincidence that we all met when we were ovulating on Valentine's day?

Tessa Sorry your appt got cancelled, but good call on the nap :) Love your bump and every time I see a pic of your tattoo I want one :)

Claire Never give up hope! I completely understand how tough it can be- trust me this has been a long journey for us too. I just keep telling myself that there is NO WAY I am not going to be a mom in this lifetime. You will too. And your DH is a doll- listen to him and enjoy your party time :) A little mental break can make all the difference in this crazy ttc world. Love and hugs to you!

Jilly Bean I started Vitex at the beginning of my last cycle. I only got 80mg tabs though and take 2 per day. I also take 500-1000 of maca, red clover, zinc, a giant B complete, vitamin c, folic acid, cal mag, EPO, garlic, hemp oil, salmon oil, coenzyme Q10, glucosamine, ...and I might even be forgetting some. My pile of pills is huge. But I have been a lot healthier since I started taking them consistently. And I don't know if I can attribute it to the Vitex but my O is earlier this month and my EWCM is fantastic which rarely happens.
Also maca is like a natural viagra. I used to really struggle with sex drive- which is distressing since I have a gorgeous husband I love to bits. Maca significantly helped in that department! DH is also taking all the same as me except the Vitex, EPO and Red Clover. Maca has been good for the wood too...lmao

Heather- How you doin' sista? I can't believe your bump is only 3lbs. You look like a perfect and healthy preggo woman. Jealous of your little sun burn- I am hoping the weather stays nice for this weekend! Oh and as for the 3D/4D U/S I went with my bro and SIL when they were pregnant with their first- they went to a clinic in Calgary. It was on Center Street I believe just a ways north of the bridge? It was over 7 years ago though so not sure they still exist. I am sure there is one in Edmonton! I hope so cause I want to get one when the time comes :)

Lynn- speaking of bump shots....haven't seen one from you in a while!!

Mandi Thanks for the positive vibes and YAY for touring your birthing center! It sounds amazing!! It must all be sinking in for you now that you can tell people. Any word from the BFF?

Faith Hello! Countdown is almost over! You excited!?

Rochelle I'm watching your chart! Hope that egg drops soon!!! Glad you are feeling better this cycle. How is DD doing post BF weaning?

Kymber Your OB team sounds amazing! And yay for a 3D/4D sono!! Congrats on the big day at work. You are a hard working mamma! The mountains were beautiful and I always feel refreshed when I get home from there.

Sorry if I left anyone out. I have to get my butt in gear!

AFM BD last night and this morning. And we are going to go for round 2 tonight. My thinking is that his count is really high, so it shouldn't matter. And if there are only a small number of good swimmers in each load (lol) then the more loads we deposit the better our chances!! Despite how unromantic that sounds we really love this time of the cycle the most. Thank goodness for that.
Dr hasn't called with DH's SA results yet so I asked him to call her today. I am really praying it has improved since 09.

As I mentioned above, FF tells me that if I conceive this cycle the EDD is Feb 14th. How awesome would that be? And ironic since we all 'met' on our Feb 14 O board. Sounds like fate to me ! ! ! !

Amber- I'm curious as to how you can tell I'm going to O soon by looking at my chart? Because I have long cycles and don't want to waste a bunch of tests I have learned to only start testing with OPK when I see a change in CM. I haven't seen that change yet. It worked like a charm last cycle and I didn't waste a bunch of OPK's. I only test once a day in the afternoon becasue I read somewhere that your LH is always lower in the morning and afternoon is the best time to test. If I started testing 2x a day I would really drive myself crazy!

Hello Lovelies!

DH and I are off work today and tomorrow leading into our weekend so we're busy doing some much needed spring cleaning on the house! It's hard to keep things in order when the two of us are rarely home on a weekend at the same time!

As we were doing laundry, DH came across this Onesie that I gave him for Christmas. He has a 1972 Gold Duster Classic Car, that he loves more than anything, so I had a baby onesie made with his car on it, and gave it to him for Christmas as a private gift. He grabbed it today, and got me to pose with it:

I'll be back later on once my house is clean and I can sit back and catch up fully on what has been going on lately with you ladies, in the mean time HUGS and BABY DUST!!!

Ang- when I see a dip like the one you had yesterday I usually see a positive opk that day or the next. I guess everyone is different but I was making the assumption based on my own cycles. I agree it is better to test in the afternoon/evening but some people have short surges so if you surged overnight you might miss it by the next evening.
