1 week to go...
12
Mon, 04-18-2011 - 10:12pm

I should be about 7 or 8 DPO now I think, I'll have to check my ticker!

No symptoms at all, no cramps, no headaches, nothing! In fact I feel great! I've started jogging again and training my puppy not to trip me up whilst we jog together. It's amazing how my mood changes once the snow melts and we get the sunshine back in our lives :)

Last month was terrible, cramps, headaches, sickness, backaches

Yay for cruising through the first half of your 2ww!! Double yay for sunshine & triple yay for a bump-free cervix :)

I hear ya! I am so happy it's spring & the weather is improving. What kind of puppy do you have? I have a 6 month old black lab/golden retriever pup & an old golden retriever & I need to train them to walk with the stroller so that'll be interesting! The poor dogs don't get walks when it's raining! Good thing we've got a big backyard ;)

Fx'd for you!!! Hope this next week flies by too!

Hey gals! Well, Sophie, I am at about the same point as you, FF has me at 9dpo today and I did BD every day during my fertile time, but like you, I had no cervical mucus...arghh....I've actually never found any of the fertile stuff since I've known what to look for and even when I reach inside I can't find any (sorry graphic...) Anyways, I really hope this is my month but I am doubtful because of it not being my month so many other times. Of course, I am obsessing and thinking everything could be a 'symptom'....God forbid I get a little extra thirsty and all of a sudden it's an EPS, lol!!!!

Question---when do your temps usually drop before AF? Last cycle (February), my temp was still high on 14dpo and I was sooo excited, and then it dropped the next day and the old hag made her unwelcome appearance. Do you girls drop around the same time? Does the period come on the day after 14dpo, as in 15dpo or am I abnormal?!

Have a wonderful day girls. :) FX for all of us. Happy Sunshine Vibes!

Go Sophie Go!! :) That's awesome that you're jogging and the sunshine is back and making us all feel great!! My dog runs straight when you jog with him but if you just walk, he zig zags! :P It's crazy!

I much more prefer no symptoms too! I didn't get actual symptoms until about 10DPO and they were so minor...like just the boobs. I never got any MS or anything until 6 weeks so I made sure to write it all down so I'll never have to worry again but than I thought, this will most likely be our last so...I guess it'll be more of a reference for my ladies. ;)

So glad to hear the bump is gone. I looked up in my books about the bump on the cervix and I couldn't really find anything. One book even suggested that we can get a little benign cysts or a pimple even. Weird! I tried checking my cervix in the 2WW and they're right when they say it's not a tell tell sign of anything. It moved every day and sometimes several times a day.

Anyway!! So glad you're feeling great!! Fingers crossed for you!

Hi ladies!

Angela - I have a golden retriever, she's 7 months old and causing trouble. We have a big back yard too but we only bought the house in November so we haven't built a fence yet. Which means she has to stay in the house while I'm at work. I just got home and she ripped open a bag of cat litter. I spent half hour sweeping it all up! Sometimes she's really good but other days she causes nothing but trouble! LOL!

Temp question - I've never tried temping, I did buy a BBT but I

Lol! That's what goldens do best! It takes a few years for goldens & labs to settle down so you've got more trouble to come ;) We crate train our pup so she's locked up when we're out so we don't need to worry (or clean up!!). Goldens are the best family dog though! Tonka has been amazing with our dd right from the start -so gentle & protective & she puts up with so much!!

If temping is too much trouble I wouldnt bother. Its just not worth the trouble but If you want to try, what if you tried temping just part time -maybe just from when af is over until o is confirmed? Or if you O later in your cycle then you could reduce the time you temped. You could try setting an alarm, taking your temp & going back to bed?

Thought I'd post a quick update, I've had such a busy day!

I'm still not having any symptoms, no IPS or PMS. I'm actually enjoying this cycle far more than last month and after todays events I've got a positive outlook on things. I got sick of waiting for Immigration / the mail man, so I called the government and found out that my application for permanent residency has been approved!! they sent my paperwork to me on Monday so I should receive them later this week/early next week. That's a huge relief. I've been waiting for 10 months and I guarentee that hasn't helped us TTC. I've constantly had that on my mind, and although I let out a big sigh of relief today I will be happier once I receive the paperwork in the mail. I cant help but think maybe she read

Awesome news Sophie!!! I'm so glad we get to keep you! Such a relief for you guys & such a burden off your shoulders...I'm gonna do a little happy dance for you right now :)

You are so right about not wasting our days waiting to O or get af...it seems like this year has flown by!! I can't believe we're nearing the end of April! I've decided to spend more time enjoying my dd while she's still so little rather than focusing upon when I'm gonna make her a big sister :)
