Thanks, that is very helpful. I am learning a lot from everybody here plus everything i have been reading. Some days I probably search too much, but oh well! I guess I will just stick to my dollar store tests until I see :bfp: and then go pick up a digital.
And to answer your question, Now I pretty much will only do projects if i have something specific i want to make for someone like bridal shower invites or something like that. when we get a house i will probably have the space to pick it back up again. That wont be for a long time though lol.

I read lots of different things. Right now I am reading Harry Potter because I never have and they are excellent!

I know how you feel! We moved out of a great house to move back to the mountains, we've been in a basement and will be moving to an apartment indefinitely (houses here are either too small or just right and too expensive). All my yarn has been packed away for months now!

I waited forever to read Harry Potter too! I'm not much of a band wagon person so when they were popular I shunned them. It wasn't until after the last book was real eased and the hype died that decided to read them.

I tend to read the trend books long before they are "cool" or way after. Lol.
Regardless they are always good books!

We did take over, didn't we? Ladies, if you're out there you are still welcome here!

I'm headed to our house on Kansas this weekend to pick up the rest of our stuff so we can move out of the basement and into our new apartment! Yay! As for the ole cyle... Cd 60 something (I stopped keeping track for now). Haven't made the DR appt.yet but I really should. For some reason I'm nervous about it. Ah well.

What's up with you?

That is very exciting about your new apartment. Hope it will not be too stressful for you. I always put off calling for appointments for myself too. drives DH crazy. If I am nervous especially I don't want to do it.

Today I'm 15DPO, and still nothing! No AF and no BFP. Like I said before, I usually spot for 2-3 days before and that never happened. AF is due today so I am so annoyed with seeing the stark white space on the test or I wish she would just come on alredy! Thats why I had to delete my signature, because it said it was CD1 for me, and it's definately not!

Hey ladies! Think I'm on CD16 today. Not sure. That miscarriage really throws the cycle for a loop!! Haha

I'm so glad I'm on holidays next week. Really need a break from work and stress. Not going anywhere, just going to stay home and do some things around the house.

French, no bfp and no af - how annoying! One or the other please! Preferably the first! My procrastination at calling make my dh crazy too. Oh well, I'll do it eventually... Lol.

Mega bummer news about our house we just move out of though; the sale was supposed to close on Tuesday (it's been under contract since January 31) and he buyer just backed out. We are livid pissed. No we have to try to swing a mortgage and rent. That may put baby making on the back burner. :(

Kandii, I hope your cycle gets back to normal soon! It sucks not knowing what to expect! Enjoy your holiday! I hope you are refreshed!

Thanks Always.
That sucks to hear the buyer backed out! I can only imagine how frustrating that must be.
French I hope you get some answers soon! FX for good news :)

Kandii- Enjoy your time off! Sometimes those are the best kind of weeks when you can just stay home and get things done!

Always- I am so sorry to hear about the house. I would be pissed too, that just seems so unfair.

I'm off to work for the day soon. I'm 17DPO and still no AF. tested twice yesterday and BFN. I'm wondering if when I was really sick a few weeks back it messed up my cycle? I haven't been late since I went off BCP, but I know 2 days isn't really considered "late" i guess? Trying not to stress and make it worse!

French, have you got AF or bfp yet?

Anything new with you, Kandii?

Nothing really new here. I finally took a test just to reassure what I already knew I'm not pregnant. I still need to make a Dr. appt. I've been procrastinating.

Hi ladies!
Sorry I have been MIA. Was my birthday yesterday so I was super busy.
I'm pretty sure I ovulated Tuesday but DH and I didn't do any BDing at all around or close to Tuesday so I am definitely out this month. But that's ok. We are doing a NTNP thing until August.

French- we need an update! BFP or AF??

Always - is it difficult to get in to see a doc where you live? Or do you just not want to go? Lol

Happy birthday, Kandii! I hope your busy day was good/fun busy and not a bummer!

It's pretty easy to get in, and the closest doctor is even accepting new patients, I just don't want to go! I want a female dr real bad but the one I would see, while her office hours are near by, if I delivered with her I'd have to drive 2 hrs over and around the mountains to get to the hospital! That's just out of the question. The next closest doctor is a male... So I just need to make an appt, meet the guy and go from there I think.

Oh ok. I wouldn't want to drive 2 hours to a hospital either.
Best thing you can do is at least do a meet and greet. And if you don't like him then at least you went.
