I am on cd7 probably oing this weekend/early next week. I wont be testing in time to know for christmas but next af is due the 28 so I will most likely test on new years eve if af isn't here yet. If its positive its a great way to start a new year, if bfn then it will be left behind with this year and I can start fresh with a new year! :)



Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper with bows and ribbons but a few bags for those impossible to wrap gifts.
Real tree or Artificial? Artificial, real ones are beautiful but a lot of maintenance...
When do you put up tree? Black friday hubby wont let me do it any sooner lol
When do you take the tree down? New year day
Lights on the tree? White lights
Angel on the tree top or a star? Star
Favorite gift received as a child? Barbie dream boat. I was sooo excited!
Hardest person to buy for? My husbands grandmother
Easiest person to buy for? My son or my 2 year old sister in law...any toy will do at their age
Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail is more personal feeling
Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Can't think of anything
Favorite Christmas Movie? Its a Wonderful Life....I watched it every year with my mom and grandma, oh and the grinch cartoon :)
Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Cookies, spinach rolls, sausage balls! Oh im sooo ready!
Favorite Christmas song? I love all christmas music! :)
Travel at Christmas or stay home? We are hosting this year for hubbys family, then going to my moms.
Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Usually we do gifts with hubby fam christmas eve then our gifts and santa gifts christmas morning but will likely be doing it christmas eve this year cuz hubby is working a 24 on christmas boo!
Most annoying thing about this time of the year? People who don't enjoy this time of year trying to rub it off on others.
Favorite ornament, theme, or color? My colors are red green and silver. I love pink but im sorry its not a christmas color.

I'm a late O'er so I've been pretty much waiting waiting waiting and will finally be O'ing next week 13-15th probably. I have been having very short LP's so I should at least be due for AF just before Christmas or around that time.

Sassy_scissors - a BFP would be a great way to start the new year!!! And boo for hubby working on Christmas!

Dina - since AF crashed Thanksgiving I think its only fair she leave you alone on Christmas!! And another 8 months after that! So funny about your dishwasher. We built a house last fall and I was sooo excited when the appliances were delivered. Definitely a sign that I'm getting older :)

Sonny - welcome back!!! A quick reply is faster, a regular reply gives you the option of pulling up the thread in a separate window if you want to see the whole thing while you respond. I had to laugh at your response about your son loving anything with wheels, my little guy is two and is the same way!

Angela - thank you! It's good to finally be back :)

Bankerswife - even when you're trying not to pay attention, I think its hard not to track what day you're on. I don't really tell DH much. I usually tell him when I'm O'ing but I never really tell him when I test.
I can't believe you kept a tree up until April 5th!!!

AFM - CD 8 today. Took an opk today basically just to check. Since this is my first full cycle after my m/c I suppose there is a chance my cycle could be messed up and I want to make sure I don't miss O! I will probably start using opks regularly this weekend. I wish I didn't have to test early when it comes to that point, but once I (hopefully) get a BFP again, its better to know earlier so I can have my levels checked to make sure my progesterone is high enough. So, I will probably start testing around 10dpo, which *should* be a couple days before Christmas.

Hmmm.....I think maybe I'm going to O early?? I've been having a lot of cm the last couple days, not quite ew but not watery either. I decided to take another opk tonight, the test line was about half the darkness of the control line. Maybe O is coming sooner than I thought?? Today is CD 9, the earliest I've ever O'd I'd CD13. It will be interesting to see what tomorrow's opk brings. I know we should probably BD tonight to get a head start; but, it has been just one of those days and I just don't have the energy. We will start tomorrow night.

I think bankerswife and lola are officially in the 2ww...hooray!!

How is everybody else doing?

I got a +opk last night (and again this morning) so today is likely O day for me!! (CD 14) We BD'd Friday night, Sunday night and last night. It would be nice to get one more in tonight, but I think our schedules aren't going to allow it :(
