Amy - I'm so curious about robitussin, etc for EWCM - I thought it only worked if you were too 'creamy' and it loosened it up. Does it work for lack of ANY CM? And a Christmas announcement would be AMAZING - that's what I've always dreamed of.

Melissa - Oooh, thanks for the link! I'll definitely start those. We will be using pretty much all our miles for our first flights to Toronto so every mile counts! Good luck with your overtime.

Kate - If you can avoid starting to temp, by all means. Because you know once you start it's like crack and you won't stop and WILL stress which is exactly what you need to avoid. (Pretty much impossible right now with your circumstances, though.)

AFM - Still sick but forcing myself to work. The last of the progesterone was yesterday so I *should* start spotting tomorrow with AF by Saturday. Here's hoping!

Here's a link to FSH tests for those that have not heard about them...
http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/first-response-fertility-test-for-women/ID=prod5457472-product?ext=gooPersonal_Care_PLA_Fertility/Ovulation_prod5457472&adtype={adtype}&sst=675351da-64b5-47e9-c2d8-000041d6abb4

Me... I'm at the magic 35 plus still BFing, so really I wonder what is going on. But honestly I don't want to bother (obsessing) with temps or OPKs.

Melissa - Good luck!!

Kate - I took the FSH test (came free with my OPKs) and I don't know if it's wonky or if my levels are really bad because it came out half as dark as the control. The lighter the better, the darker the worse. I am still half a decade away from 30, over 10 years away from AMA! So either it's a good thing I am having my kids young or the tests don't work. And thanks for the info! I don't tend to cramp DURING AF but the right before/the first days and it sucks!

Melissa - I hope it's a good sign!!

Alison - Ugh I'm so sorry you're sick and you had such a crappy holiday. In laws suck! Did I mention here Rob went to their house the other night and demanded they apologize to me, in person?

Alyssa - Yay for Oing soon!

AFM - Ok so I took mucinex last night (unrelated reasons, I have a cough with no other symptoms and my allergies have been awful so I figured it was allergy related and the only cough suppressent I had was mucinex) and holy EWCM today!! TONS and tons of it! It works! lol! Me and Rob decided if we get pregnant this month we'll announce at Christmas so we're really hoping it happens! We've also decided that not only are we not finding out the gender, but we're not going to tell people how many are in there! LOL! Because after you have twins your belly still gets really big (muscle memory) it won't be that easy to tell by belly pictures either lol.

Amy - *hugs* I know how you feel.

Melissa - I'm so sorry!! What a tease that spotting is. But congrats on the 2.2 lbs!!! And if you happen to come across any bonus Air Miles coupons, I"ll definitely take those. :smileywink:

Christine - sorry, that's what I meant, your DH was Turkish! I think a trip to Dubai would be amazing!!!

Kate - just sending lots & lots of hugs your way. Take some minutes to enjoy those fall photos and hopefully they'll brighten your day.

Alyssa - enjoy your BDing. :smileywink: Did you guys do anything for Thanksgiving?

AFM - I started to feel sick on Saturday, then by Monday morning I had a full-blown cold. Still struggling today but I have a crapload to do in preparation for the wedding show I'm in (11 days, holy crap!!!!) Thanksgiving was ok. I should have stayed home!! DH's brother that I don't like (he has 3) was being his usual ass self and we got into a stupid argument about Arnold Schwarzenegger. Of all things!! His girlfriend also announced she's moving in with him. I'm guessing he could propose over Christmas and they'll get married next summer and she'll be pregnant before I do.

Melissa - sorry about AF showing. That's crazy you have to wait so long to see your obgyn! Hopefully the tests go well.

Amy - odd on another round of EWCM - BD'ing just in case sounds like a good plan!

Kate - not sure what FSH strips are?

AFM - A bit of EWCM yesterday, and lots this morning, so looks like O is coming in the next few days!

Melissa: Sorry about the crummy timing and AF showing. (((hugs)))

Has anyone ever used FSH strips? I see 1st Response has a test out now that you can buy at the drug store for it; but I also saw you can buy them pretty cheap on Amazon, but they are marketed to women getting close to menuapoause. I've been thinking about getting them.

GL Amy!!

Melissa - Forgot to say congrats on the weight loss!! That's awesome! I'm hoping to join WW after the next baby and encourage my mom to join too as we both have a lot of weight to lose. Fall/winter is always the hardest time for me with all the comfort dishes and goodies around. I've been indulging a little too much lately. :-/

FX!

AFM - After that little bit of EWCM, then nothing for 4 days, I am having it again and my sex drive is back up again. 2nd O? Or maybe just I didn't O last time and now this is really it? Either way BD tonight and crossing my fingers!
