I'm still unhappy about this board, and have written iVillage but of course, they don't really seem to care. I talked with my dh last night and he encouraged me to stay, despite the extra time/inconvenience/money this stupid board now takes. I am going to try it out...

Please forgive me for being so overly dramatic yesterday. I was in such shock about the board, and really truly felt that you were all ripped away from me. AF showed last night, so I have a sneaking suspicion that PMS helped me have such a drastic view of the whole case. Still, I think the board will automatically be a bit less personal, less interactive, and I think it is a real shame.

I'm only posting my chart in case anyone wants to see how the last one turned out (this one isn't too exciting yet).

Rebecca, are you on for another Oing contest? I'm ready, if you are! How about we O on Easter? I think that is a cheerful day to conceive, and am going to give it a try. :)

To say something positive to the whole board, here it is: I love you girls!

((((((((((Jolene))))))))))))) I am so very sorry that the old hag showed! I hope that this is the last time that you see her in a very very long time! I know the new board is hard but I really hope that all the kinks get worked out and it gets easier b/c I want to be able to check up on all you wonderful women and watch you all get your BFPs!!

Hugs,

Sara

Jolene, hugs. I know I totally understand where you were coming from yesterday. I think we all felt frustrated. It's a mess around here! I doubt they'll change anything no matter how much we complain -- but hopefully we can figure out ways to make it work and still be able to find each other in this mess. I hope you are feeling a little better this morning and that AF isn't torturing you. I'm sending you lots of hugs. I hope you stay -- I for one would miss you a lot.

Hey Jolene!!! I am *so* up for another contest. I'm so happy you're staying!!!!!! :) Isn't Easter on April 20th? That would put our O day on ... cd24, is it? Hm... I'm hoping it doesn't take that long (otherwise the whole queasy metformin thing isn't really working! LOL), but hey, I'm up for it!!!!!!

Thanks for sticking around. I think this format will work out in the end, but the catagories just need to be refined to work with the way everyone is used to grouping things.

(((((((((((hugs)))))))))))) Let's make AF miserable this month so she doesn't want to come back for a LOOOOONG while, shall we??

((((Jolene))) I'm so sorry AF found you. Here's hoping this is her last visit for the next year! I am sending you some ~patience vibes~ for the wait to o and for dealing with this slow board.

If AF finds me this weekend, I want in on your o-ing contest with Rebecca. I'm pretty confident I can outlast you both (last cycle I o-ed on cd 36 and it would be nice to think of that as a good quality for a change!).

Hope AF isn't being too mean. Take care,

Joan

So sorry she showed, Jolene! Ugh. Well, I've got your beer and sushi over here.

I'm so glad you didn't go. Let's hope we all graduate next cycle and have to have a near beer pasteurized cheese party instead.

Your DH sounds great for encouraging you to stay.

Hugs,

E
