Linds- yes AF got me, meant to text. And, slightly promising to me is that where my temps have been CRAZY since IUD came out (my cover line was SUPER high because my temps were already high before ovulating!)-- the onset of AF was textbook--- temps started to drop, I started to cramp, BAM. Fingers crossed my body is back to normal. Will be texting you for some OPK sticks. Also, congrats on being DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know that time off is a good feeling!!! Enjoy the time with the in laws!
MARINA--- hahaha, yes, a thorough cleaning for a new tenant, I hope. And as always, you said that so eloquently
YOU BETTER BE WALKING AND HAVING LOTS OF AWKWARD PREGNANT LADY SEX TO GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD!!! As for stretch mark, I did not get them until the last few weeks with AD-- and I didn't even know because they were light but when my tummy deflated I could see them. Thankfully they fade. They are not purple spidery things forever.
Danielle-- a summer baby won't be so bad. Sure it'll be hot and you'll be big --BUT you will look pregnant not chubby. I was first-second tri in the summer last time and I just looked fat in my bathing suit! And maybe it is twins-- I thought I was having twins, BFP on 8dpo -- and honestly, the hint of something ( a disturbance as Lindsey would call it) on 7dpo. But just one very healthy baby!
Star--poor thing with the clothing side effect/result--- Dresses are definitely your friend. I just bought size up dresses for that first trip bloating -- so maybe buy a few "bigger" clothes now and that will carry you the first 15-20 weeks! Good luck for juicy eggs!
EOE-- hey ladies, sending my love and baby dest and go into labor dust-- and basically all the dust I have!
AFM: CD 2 -- yes, AF finally showed up after a 65 day cycle. I ended up ovulating a second time after the IUD removal but I am glad for that because my luteal phase and onset of period was pretty normal after that ovulation. Hoping that means things are regulating. Taking VITEX, EPO, omegas, RRL etc to help regulate hormones a bit more!! And although I had a slight chance of pregnancy last time (barely caught that second O), I am now fully on the TTC bandwagon and will be tracking, temping, charting, peeing, baby dancing!!! So throw all your tips my way ladies
My normal ovulation used to be 13-16 days so hoping to return to that. Post miscarriage, it was 28-22 and then post IUD, it was well, crazy. Not to sound super romantic or anything, but I would love to get the baby dancing done BEFORE the week of Christmas haha. Not because I hate baby dancing -- but because it's a lot harder to schedule while traveling. Some nights Dave will be at camp hunting, the bedroom we stay in has the squeakiest bed in the history of beds--- and his sister walks through it to get to the bathroom (no privacy) So yeah, cross your fingers that I ovulate by the 21 haha, right before we leave!!!
