Hi ladies!

I'm taking a break from house renos to post. We got SO MUCH done today already. My in-laws came up today to help us out, which was so wonderful. The carpet is pulled up and out and I have the first coat of paint in the master bedroom. I have a RED wall...its so friggin sexy, lol!! Its gonna be so awesome when its done and the furniture is in there! Tomorrow we have more painting to do and more help too...seven of us total to get it done. I'm so in love even though I'm so sore. I can't wait until our first night sleeping there.

TMI........DH and I had a quickie GOFO on the master bedroom floor when we got there, haha!! In-laws drove up just as I was in the washroom. So I guess the house is ours...it was christened!

I'm pissed though...the vendor realtor came to get the SOLD sign today. I wanted a pic of DH and I in front of the house with the sign to put in our album of us :( Oh well...DH got a shot of me opening the door for the first time.

Thanks Katie for my siggy!

Ruby- glad to hear you are enjoying the new place. ;-)

I may have had some IPS this weekend. For one thing, I felt super nauseous on the drive up the mountain. This is not unusual at all for me... but having that nausea after taking Dramamine is. When I have remembered it in the past, I was totally symptom free. Not sure what was up yesterday.

Also, on the drive home yesterday I was super exhausted, and I fell asleep for part of the drive back. Now, I am usually tired, but the car is so uncomfortable I can't actually sleep, I just rest. But yesterday I was OUT! (My sweet DH took a picture of me :-P).

Not sure if they were symptoms or just something else, but my internal pregnancy symptom tracker is up and running. :-D

Dee, any IPS symptoms there?

How is everyone else doing? There were no posts at all yesterday... so sad...

Lisa - YES! I haven't had IPS even when I was pregnant. I always thought it would just be too early to notice anything. But I got up to pee twice last night (and I usually sleep through the night w/o getting up). I've had sore breasts and cramping. I have to admit I was kind of grumpy today - Dh was reading the computer over my shoulder and when he started blabbing about it, I snapped "I didn't ASK you for your opinion." Very unusual behaviour for me...tho he realized how rude what he was doing was so he forgave me right away.


You aren't temping so I don't have a chart to stalk - where are you in the wait?


AF is due Wed or Thurs next week. If she doesn't show, I'll be testing on Sat morning. I leave for my vacation that day but I'll be sure to get on that night to share!

Hey everyone! Back to Monday again, are we?

DEE - yay for POAS coming up soon!! I hope this week flies by! (Tangent: Would that be "flys", or "flies"... right now neither one looks right and it's going to bug me! LOL. Uh, I have a degree in english, you'd think I'd know...)

LISA - I hope those IPS's are the real deal this time and you get your BFP!

JENNI - How'd the roller coaster riding in the dark go? That sounds fun. :) I hope the yeast infection is all cleared up now. Those aren't fun.

RUBY - Woohoo on moving into the new place! Glad to hear you gave it a proper christening, LOL.

AFM - had a nice weekend... maybe too much baby overload. At the end of last week I babysat for a friend of ours, then we went to a BBQ yesterday and all our friends had brought their kids... it was harder than I thought it would be. There were just SO many of them! I really really wanted to have the satisfaction of knowing (probably not telling all those people, but just KNOWING) that I was PG at that point. In september we've got two weddings and two of our friend's kid's bday parties and I really hope I'll be getting that BFP this time around. The social situations are tough. Fortunately, DH was really understanding. I didn't say anything to him but he must have just known how I was feeling because he kept reaching over to me at the bbq and saying "hang in there." :)

Best and worst of summer? Best I guess would be starting this TTC journey. Worst would easily be losing my dad. It's been a bit of a roller coaster summer. I think I'm really looking forward to the Fall this year...

Oh, I forgot to say, on the way home from the BBQ DH and I talked about our plan for TTC this cycle... he brought up getting a fertility monitor. Since my cycles are fairly regular I don't want to spend the money, but I am considering getting the CBE digital ovulation sticks (since I appear to have ovulated anywhere as early as CD15 and as late as CD19). As some of you may remember I HATE those regular ovulating sticks with the little "is this line darker than that line" thing. But I was thinking maybe the digital ones would be less infuriating. Has anyone tried those???

Thanks for the encouragement ladies.

Dee- I hope your IPS are real too! After having some sort of IPS every month though... I really no longer trust my body lol. I gave you and other chart stalkers one more temp lol. I wanted one of my "high" temps to compare to when/if I start spotting so I know if it is consistently high still (could be implanting spotting) or if it is lower, then I know AF is on her way. (This isn't negative thoughts... just practical lol). I am about a week away from testing at this point. My AF could come sometime this week, or I'll test Sunday (anyone noticing how I keep sneaking it closer lol)

Mary- (hugs) I hope you don't have to go back to your Gyn because it is taking too long, but it is nice that you can go in 6 months instead of the year that I would have to wait (if it takes that long... hopefully not). Also, remember that if there is a problem, it might be good to figure it out, so it can be fixed... it might help to have to go to the doctor. :-D But I will keep my fingers crossed, and keep you (and all of us in this board) in my prayers that it doesn't come to that.

Andi- I have been in times where I looked at every kid with the "Sigh... I want one" attitude. Fortunately, this intense desire comes and goes. Currently, I have a healthy "life is good now" attitude, still going from visiting my friend with the toddler. I still want that baby... but know life will be so differently once it comes that I am just appreciating life now.

Afm- Yesterday my DH and I put the floor in our bathroom! Yay! This is especially exciting because it means we are one step away from putting a toilet in again. (Maybe I'm lazy... but I miss having a toilet I can use downstairs... and I would rather not have the new one in our living room) This upcoming weekend we are doing molding, and then he said the next step is the toilet!
(I talk about the remodel more with pictures in my blog if you are interested).

Current Ips= boobs sore (but this has been every month as a pre-AF symptom too...), still feeling nauseous here and there, and now I can add cravings lol (again... probably not really a IPS, because I occasionally have cravings all through the year). I have been loving Mexican food... eating it 4 days in a row. Then last night, I really wanted a baked dessert (cake, cookies etc.) so I made a batch of peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies on a whim! While I frequently love baked goods... I don't usually make cookies... so its kinda unusual (by the way... they were delicious... nothing tastes as good as a craving filled :-))

I'll keep you ladies posted :-D

Chart stalkers unite! Anyone want to take a peak at my chart and give me their thoughts? FF thinks I've O'ed and I'm just not sure. For my first high temp over the weekend, I took my temp at 7:40 instead of 6:30. For the second, I had a few drinks the night before which always increases my temps. Today was a low temp, but still got dotted CH. I guess I just need to wait and see what tomorrow's temp does. Time will tell, just obsessing...

Thanks for the input...I agree. Maybe I should cool it with the drinking...that CD11 temp rise was following a margarita! Haha.

And yeah...I was slightly hopeful for the CD17 O but I figured I wouldn't be that lucky. Plus, with the ambiguity of my high temps over the weekend I'd kind of prefer to wait a couple of more days to O just so it's clear. If I O today and get a temp rise tomorrow, it'll still have CH for me on CD17. Plus we didn't really GOFO much, so I'm ok with it taking a couple of more days!
