Brit- I used to take EPO and it really helped with my EWCM. I think I'm going to use preseed, prenatals, and OPKs this month along with more working out. I need to speed up my weight loss cause I only have until may 22nd to work with the doctor! Unless I wanna pay another few hundred dollars -_-

Hope everyone is having a lovely Valentines! I gotta figure out something for DBF. Any ideas?

<b>Sapo</b> Good luck, keep shedding those pounds!

I got DF a 'bedroom bucks' thing (its like naughty coupons) and I'm making him is favorite dinner and got a bottle of Monet for us. :)

I'm wondering what DF has planned though.

Sooo I went to my weekly checkup. Gained 2 1/2 pounds. Isn't that fabulous???????

I cried. Started blabbing about how stupid I am. He tells me he wants me to lose the 2 1/2 pounds by next Tuesday - so my punishment for myself is to lose 6. Which means strictly going by his diet, instead of 'substituting' sometimes. And working out, a lot. I just got back from a 30 minute jog with one of my dogs. Gonna pack up my laptop and a season of Dexter and head to work!! (I'm madly in love with Dexter<3333 mmmmm)

As for V-day, I hope yours was awesome! Did DF do anything special for you?

I came home on Sunday to a big vase of pink roses and white lillies and a big teddy bear hugging the vase. Then yesterday we went to dinner really late and exchanged cards. Now I just gotta cash my check today and I think I'm gonna go get a gift card for a deep tissue massage at this really nice spa in Old Town. He plays soccer and is ALWAYS sore and injured, lol.

Aww sounds like you had a good valentines day. :) We had a pretty fantastic one, too.

Not much to say, AF is slowing down. The primrose oil is giving me minor cramps but nothing too bad. I'm hopeful it will help us conceive this month.

:jump: How are YOU?

Hey grl!

What a busy week. Got in an argument with DBF the day after Valentines and have been at my Mom's since. Came home last night and talked and things are back to normal. Yesterday was my "last day" of AF, although it was mainly just pink spotting here and there. While at my Mom's I've been catching up on the BEST show EVER - Dexter. Haha, I'm in love. I'd totally have HIS babies!

Mmm.

So that's really it on me. Other than studying my @ss off for this stupid Nursing entrance exam. I failed the math portion cause math isn't my subject and so I gotta retake it ASAP. I have to apply to the program by May. :?

It's super quiet in here!! I don't get on as much when I'm so far from O'ing, maybe it's the same with everyone else 8)

I ended AF today though. Been taking 1 500mg EPO in the morning and 1 500mg EPO at night. No side effects other than it makes my ovaries get really hot feeling and my back gets minor cramps? I was told it was normal but we'll wait and see what it does for my EWCM.

<b>Jax</b> How you doing, mama!? I love hearing updates!! :mrgreen:

<b>Sapo</b> Hope AF is clearing up and wasn't too bad! Do you normally O late in your cycle, like me? Or do you O early sometimes? I can O anywhere between CD17 and CD22!!! That's a LOT of BD'ing!! :shock: :roll: :)

<b>Tollie</b> Hope work isn't killin' ya!! Come update us when you get the chance.

<b>MC</b> Let me know what happens with the doctor! That sucks that your cycles being funky. Hopefully the cream with help!! :fingersx:

<B>Jax</b> YAY! Baby is getting so big in there. Bet you can't wait to start really seeing that belly! Have any morning sickness yet?

<b>Sapo</b> GOOD LUCK ON YOUR NURSING EXAM! For some reason I didn't see your update yesterday?? Must have missed it. Glad you and DBF worked things out. Men can be obnoxious sometimes. :roll:

AFM, CD8 and I guess I'm getting ready to start our BD'ing. Last night DF and I were next door having our usual with the neighbors (drinks and hanging out) and I felt a HUGE rush on liquid "down there". Ran to the bathroom to find so much creamy cm - it's way too early for this. Probably the EPO at work. YAY! Hopefully it will be just as fantastic with my EWCM.

O'ing from my right ovary this month. Isn't it weird that I can feel it? It alternates sides every month, like it's suppose to. :) Can't wait to try for that BABY!

Hey Brit,

I also don't get on as much since I'm not fertile yet. Plus I worked every day last week and studied after work. So I've been pretty busy. Last night my DBF and I were involved in a shitty car accident and so now we're both without cars and (I'm still covered by my Mom's right now, but DBF's isn't - his is complicated. But he may not be covered at this time) and this whole thing sucks.

I ran into a lady who slammed on her brakes because of somebody else and I slammed into the back of her. Don't remember much except the air bag hitting me and then I felt another slam from behind, which was my DBF hitting me in his car. I feel horrible because he just bought it last weekend (it's not new, it's an older Corolla), and the cop wrote HIM the ticket for being at fault because of some stupid VA law. He had nowhere else to go! If he had swerved into the other lane he would have gotten even more injured and his car would have been totaled. The impact he had on me was minimal. There's just a small area on my driver side rear bumper that has some dings and scuffs, but his car is pretty bad and my front end is completely messed up. The lady I hit said "her back hurts" but she was wearing a seat belt and there's like 0 damage to her stupid car. There's maybe a smaaallll dent and some scratches and scuffs. That's it. I wanted to punch her in the face.

Well that's my story. My boyfriend's insurance should be covering both of our rental's but now it looks like he won't have coverage so he's out faxing paperwork and crap. The stress is so high I've felt sick all night.

<B>Sapo</b> OH NO! Honey, that's awful, I'm so sorry!! If the air bags came out then it had to have been a bad one! :cry: That's no good! It's lucky you at least have one car, for now. Hopefully your DBF can get the whole rental car situation taken care of. Insurance companies make everything so difficult!! As for the lady you hit... GRR :x She just wants to try and suck some money out of the accident! Big a** faker, if you ask me! My father had someone try to pull one over on him like that... needless to say the guy didn't get away with it.

I've only been in one car accident while I was driving and thank goodness, it was a fender bender AT WORST.

Hope you feel better and don't have whiplash or anything! And I hope everything with the cars and insurance gets worked out!

Thanks girl.

Yeah I just remembered the ambulance showed up and they were asking us if we are OK, and she said "my back hurts...I think I need physical therapy." REALLY? You're going to diagnose yourself right there? Fucking idiot.

Excuse my language.

As for cars, we have nothing. My Mom just chewed out Liberty Mutual (don't recommend them at all) because they didn't give us rental coverage and won't help us with it at all. My BF is still trying to figure out if he's even going to be covered. If I'm lucky, I may be covered for a rental from his insurance, but even still that will probably take days.

On top of all this, DBF is out with his friend, and has been for the past three hours. He says he's been on the phone with insurance, and is trying to figure out if he should fax the title to them (long story).
Yeah sure, it will be convenient for you to fax it while you're out but I'm sitting at home stressed out, sick, and crying because I keep running through the events and I just feel horrible and don't want to be alone and apparently that doesn't even effing matter. He's just worried about finding a car from a friend so that he can go to work tonight. YOU WERE JUST IN A FREAKING ACCIDENT, TAKE A FREAKING DAY OFF.

Whatever, I just don't even want to be awake right now. Somebody give me a xanax :(

I've never really been in an accident either. Just a fender bender back in August 'cause some guy was switching lanes in a hurry and hit the side of my car because he didn't see me.

Men can be insensitive jerks sometimes. :roll:

Whenever something major happens with us and I'm feeling stressed out and overwhelmed, Jay decides he wants to go play Call of Duty: Black Ops. Talk about annoying!!!

I'm sorry you're having a rough day. :( Insurance companies will do anything in their power to not pay for ANYTHING. You just have to stay on their @ss and make sure they cover what is in your policy. Car accidents are super expensive.

Seriously, I had a prescription for xanax back in August when my baby brother went in for his heart surgery.... I would NOT have survived without it! What you need to go is go curl up in bed, watch some DEXTER (I know how much you love him!) and try to get some sleep, or at least some rest.

Let your DBF go out and be stupid if he wants, LOL :mrgreen: :roll: 8)

<B>MC</b> OH! Whoa, that's no good. For real, they need to just make a pill called FERTILITY! and it just fixes any problem you might be having. :rofl: I sure hope she comes quickly so you can finally O and try for that bay-bay! :jump:

AFM, coming up on my fertile period. My creamy CM is even kind of sticky, which is WAY early but I'm taking it as a GOOD sign that it's WORKING! :) I also think I've gained some weight over the past 2 months. Everything seems to be thicker in general, which is great because I was 5 lbs underweight :( It's impossible to gain weight, just like it's impossible for some women to lose it.

I'm in a very good mood. It was my first day back at work. I missed my kiddos! Hope everyone is doing well.
