Sorry for the slow reply KitKat. I took a spontaneous road trip with my girlfriend and was out of town for 5 days and then it took me about 3 to rest and catch up from the trip! Unfortunately, I left my BBT at a farm house in Michigan and just got another one today so I missed temping several days. My cycle has been about ever 25 to 26 days since I MC last year. Before that, it was every 28 days like clockwork. I don't know why it shorten but apparently that happens.

I discovered Gold Peak Tea and that's what I have been drinking in the afternoons now. It's good but probably has too many calories!

I said I wasn't going to POAS anymore until AF was late but because I have had so many SXS this cycle, (super sore boobies, peeing a lot, and mysterious cramping) I started testing and so far, nothing but :bfn: :bfn: ! I expect to get AF on Saturday as normal.

How's everyone doing?

Just finishing up 11th cycle ttc. AF showed very late at day 35 this month. Crazy! Going to use OPK's this month as it's clear that I can't pinpoint O with cycles ranging from 25-35 days! Seeing my doctor end of Aug. Trying to stay positive and just enjoy the summertime. Good luck this cycle ladies!

Hi Ladies~ Sorry I've been MIA we had an spur of the moment trip to visit family in Lousiana we got back on Sunday and turned around and left on Monday for our planned week long trout fishing adventure.
Update on me first I'm doing good 14 weeks now. Most days I feel much much better I still have the occasional day where it hits me but for the most part I'm glad the sickness is gone. I had another dr apt yesterday it was great I've only gained one pound in a month which I was glad to see b/c I feel like I've gained a ton. I am really sticking out there. I took my youngest son with me to my apt. He got to see the baby on the ultra sound it was really sweet to watch his reaction. Then when we left he said " mom I don't know how you don't feel Will doing all that break dancing in there, He's good!" NO we don't know the sex yet but he's certain it's a boy. It was very nice to have some one on one time with him. I have new pics but I haven't scanned them in yet. I'll post when I do.
My father in law finally got out of the hospital what was supposed to be 4-6 days was over two weeks. He had some complications. Then he was out two days and fell in his apartment thing. I don't remember if I told you he lives in an assisted living place now so there is a nurse on staff 24/7. Any whoo he fell and got a huge gash in his head it required staples. His sister took him as we were in LA when it happened.
As for vacation Ill attach a picture for your viewing pleasure. My son's catch of the day was himself. The highlight of our trip a visit to the ER to have two hooks removed. He's fine no stiches and was back fishing the next day. The boys and hubby enjoyed the vacation but I'm glad it was over I was not feeling well at all while we were there.
Ok enough about me .. Let's see
Kitcat~ 35 day cycle oh honey that would drive me crazy. Fingers crossed you get your BFP soon. KUP with the doctor visit.
Baby dreams~ How are you? Have you tested yet? fingers crossed the witch stays away!!!
How's everyone else? Luna how are you girl?
Has anyone heard from Blison or Morrigan?
I am getting super busy with back to school and my house is almost done... I don't think I planned that very well it's super stressful but it'll be all good when everything is back on schedule and we are moved in. I may not reply often but I check in with you girls every few days.
Lots of Baby Dust Ladies~

AF showed up for me as scheduled on Saturday. We are going to actively TTC this cycle. I'm trying to remain positive although to be honest, I'm really down. This week will have been a year since my MC. I really didn't think it would take so long to get pregnant again.

Hey ladies! I am so sorry I have been MIA! I was trying to take a bit of a break from focusing on every little symptom..

Well.. Just got back from holidays and took a test and wooohoo! I had suspected the entire trip, but didn't want to get my hopes up :)

How is everyone doing?

Hi Ladies,
Yes, My doctor's appointment is for the end of this month. Currently, I'm in the middle of my 11th or 12th cycle ttc. I should know that, right! LOL
This is the 1st month I'm trying to OPK in the am and pm. I wish I had started doing that sooner!
Got a very positive OPK on wondfo last night. This am the 2nd line started to fade and the fertility monitor didn't pick up the peak, so I imagine that my surge doesn't last long and I will O sometime today!
DH and I BD this morning and Tues PM (so 36 hours in between). Plan to BD either tonight or tomorrow AM, so we will see!
I didn't get to know you yet Bilson, but congrats!
DH and I are going away on Sunday, so I will have my mind of things for at least half of the tww. Best wishes to all this month!

Hi everybody. I am wondering if I could join your group. I am 38 and have had all my children in my 30's. This is my 3rd cycle TTC. We are TTC one more, but I am worried I am running out of time! Anyway, I'm not having much luck, but am going to try hard again this cycle and hope for my BFP. One more child would complete our family.

Hi Jessc!
Welcome! How many children do you have? 3 cycles TTC is nothing to worry about. My good friend just had her third child at 38. I'm 33 and hoping to be able to have just one child:( I thought I was in my 12 cycle, but turns out I'm just in my 11th.
Wishing you so much luck! Welcome!!!! :)

Thank you! I should have clarified...my ticker is incomplete...I have three children. I have been very lucky. My DH and I would like to have four, and my OB warned me that I might have a hard time now that I'm 38. I have been around TWW for a while now and have a group I post with a lot and love but I am by far the oldest in that circle. I am using OPKs too and this month I'm going to try and make sure we BD enough!

I hope this is your month Kitcat! Thanks for welcoming me!

Hi Everyone! I am new here and was wondering if I could join your group? I am 37 and we have been TTC for 5 months now. I have an 8 year old son who was a "surprise" baby and was incredibly easy to concieve. Now that I want to get pregnant it seems I can't! It hasn't been that long yet- I'm keeping the faith. I love reading all the stories on here- you ladies are an inspiration! :)

Hi Ladies!

Sorry I went MIA for a while. I had some problems with bleeding and it was just like a flashback to last time and coming on these boards for some reason made me more anxious and depressed. They put me on progesterone and I just came off it last week. I am now 12 weeks and so far everything looks OK (FX!!!) This Thursday I'm having my NT scan and I hope everything looks good there too.

Hi new people!

I'm glad to see everything is going great for you teachingmom, and ouch about the fishing accident!

Luna, I'll have my FX for you too. Best of luck to you! :D

Bilson~Congrats!!! :jump: :jump: :jump:

CONGRATS BILSON! Keep us updated!

Welcome Jessc and Englishgrad!


Morrigan, Welcome back. Been thinking of you.


How's everyone doing? I'm on CD 18, not for sure how many dpo because I don't when I did. I stopped temping this month. I figure if I'm going to get pregnant, I will regardless if I temp or not. I don't have any hopes for this cycle since we only got to BD once during my fertile window around CD 12.

Good Luck to everyone!

Thank you Ladies!

Congratulations Bilson and Morrigan!

Good Luck LunaLuna! It only takes one time if it's the right time :)

I am not even in the 2WW yet and I am already anxious. I promised myself this month I would relax and not worry about it so much. We will see how that goes
