 I can not believe the year is coming to an end soon. Wow, where has time gone? It only seems to drag by after ovulation. Share symptoms, test results and vent frustrations. Sending sticky baby vibes and baby dust to all.

Ava! A giant HUG for you too! Glad hubby was home to "play". Sorry he has gone again. Is that a possible O on your chart or an implantaton dip from O before? How long will you take the progesterone? Are you suppposed to test before stopping it? Sorry, I woke up with lots of questions!

Thanks AvaSmile  I didn't test this morning--I figure I'll just temp and wait a few more days.  My temp is still high, so that is good, but I don't have any increasing pregnancy symptoms either.  I'm just going to try to enjoy knowing that I am pregnant today, and not worry about tomorrow.  

Sorry about DH leaving!  Is he traveling for work?  How often does he go?  Big hugs for you and your little kiddo!  My husband doesn't travel now, but did for several years of our marriage; in fact, the first two years, I lived in Dallas and he lived in St. Louis, MO for one year and Washington DC for another.  That was no fun!  Hope your DH gets to come home soon!

 Krista-YAY for your temp staying high. I know it's hard not to test but I think you will have a great line tomorrow. Are you getting betas done? I can't remember if you are on progesterone or not? Every pregnancy is different so maybe your symptoms are just being kind to you right now.

Wow, I don't know how you managed with hubby gone for so long. I try to send mine away for the day sometimes but I thank God he is home every night except for the occasional weekend trip.

Hi Vickie, truly and really not too many questions at all and guess what, before I came onto this board I was on the november roll call, and have asked you heaps of questions!!lol I think we both woke up with heaps of questions! 

I put my temps into ff today and it looks like (according to ff at least) that I did ovulate, I really thought I was out this month, and even better it seems dh was home at exactly the right moment!! even if it was just for a moment!!  He will be back in 3 days so your hug was just what the doctor ordered!!  

I am going to take the progesterone for 10 days and Im too scared to go any less in case (tmi warning) the bleeding starts again, I actually cant imagine this cycle being a positive one due to the progesterone but am hoping my ff chart is right and I did O but is that possible 26 days through a cycle?? It seems very late to me.

When you ask should I test before stopping the progesterone do you mean an OPK or a HCG test? I hadn't actually thought about it.  Do you think it a good idea before stopping it?  I so hope I stop having these really long cycles.

I had forgotten about Hurricane Sandy, and I do ask in the Nov roll call but I hope you weren't too damaged or affected by it. I was shocked by the images of it.

Hi Kristy, good news about the temps staying up.  I have totally fx into cramps for you but I think waiting to test for a day or so is a really good idea, just enjoy.

My goodness that must have been so hard living in the two separate cities, you guys are amazing it is really hard and lonely not being together, and it must have been more so in the early stages of your marriage.  How did you find the time to make 4 beautiful cherubs?!!!lol

My dh is away for about a week at the beginning of each calendar month and then sporadically through the week depending on how business is going.  It does get difficult as it is a little bit unpredictable, it means home life can be disjointed but I work hard to keep it consistent for little ds.  Dh is now away until thursday but hopefully that will be the last trip until beginning of december.

I wanted also to say, even though its probably too late, I really hope hurricane Sandy didn't get or affect you. I was thinking about you when the images hit the news.

wishing you well and sending lots of positive vibes.

Ava- Lots of women O around CD 26.  I am wondering though if you didn't O sooner than that. You had a rise on CD 13 and another on CD16. What is your normal cycle length and O date? I'm not sure how the progesterone would affect temps either. Some women have higher temps on it while some maintain their normal temp range. I would definitely test with an HPT before stopping it just to be on the safe side. I love good excuses to POAS! FX for you!

Well, my temp took a sharp drop today and I had really bad lower back pain all day yesterday.  I'm guessing these are not good signs about the pregnancy, especially the temp dropFrown I''l try to attach my chart to see what you gals think and I'll see what happens today...  

My husband's company is reapplying for health insurance and getting new quotes, all of which requires health history info.  I didn't want to do betas until after I submit the paperwork for our family, because with Will's pregnancy and complications plus a current pregnancy, our rates would skyrocket.  If this baby hangs on until next week, I'll get the betas done.  I was on progesterone with my first 3 pregnancies, but didn't need it with the last two.  I'm wondering about this one, but will have to wait until next week to take a progesterone/beta test, if I am still pregnant. 

Ava, I live in Houston, so we were not affected by Hurricane Sandy, but a couple of years ago, we had a direct hit from Hurricane Ike, so I can really empathize with what all of the affected areas are dealing with.  We were without power for 2 weeks and the long lines and rationing at the gas stations and grocery stores bring back so many memories.  I really feel for all of the Northeasterners!  Vickie, were you affected?

Yes, it was really difficult being separated for so long the first couple of years of our marriage.  Bill flew home several weekends a month, so that was good, but the time alone was very lonely.  Our children came after he stopped traveling so muchSmile

Yay Ava for a possible ovulation!  and huge YAY that DH was home at the right time!!  FX coming your way!  I would test with HPT before stopping progesterone too.  Good luck!

 Oh Krista, I hope that temp drop was just a fluke temp and that it skyrockets tomorrow. Sending prayers that everything is okay. The link to your chart didn't work for me. You may have to disable rich text and copy the HTML code from your homepage for it to work.

 I live in Georgia, about an hour from the coast, so we only had the winds to deal with as it passed by. I truly feel for everyone that was affected by it.

I'll be thinking of you and saying a prayer
