Lisa, hope the IPS turn to RPS!!! Baby dust!!
Dee, good luck with testing!! Hope the witch stays away!
Mary, sorry you're getting discouraged and fearful about going back to your doc. If I remember correctly, you had your DH get an SA before TTC and it came back normal right?? Maybe you're like other Cycle four BFPS...Carly, Joelle and I think Kelly all got their BFP's on cycle four! Hang in there!!
Andi, sorry about the overload at the BBQ. How thoughtful of your DH to be in tune with how you were feeling as well. Hopefully September is your month! I dont have any experience with the monitor but I know Jacquedia used it when TTCing in June and got PG right away. Maybe its worth a shot??
Erin, not a chart stalker but I do hope you get some clarity soon.
AFM, still moving and painting. Its coming along quite nicely. I think our bedroom will look like a real room after tomorrow when our furniture gets there. The carpet is so beautiful and looks awesome with the paint. I'm so happy with the progress so far.
On the TTC front, we'll start GOFOing EOD this week into next week. Its highly tiring and stressful for us both right now with the move and renos but we'll make it work.
Thanks Katie for my siggy!
Half to Whole
Some of you are expressing worries about TTC taking too long. I just wanted to share that acupuntcutre (or accupressure) can help increase your fertility. I used it after we had our two MC's & got PG very quickly (admittedly never been a problem for us) & kept having the treatments throughout the PG. They helepd with my less comfortable PG symptoms as well. Also, many insurance Co's cover a certain number of acupunture treatments just like chiropractic ones.
Thanks Noel - I found some very welcome relief in acupuncture once.
Andi - baby overload is a good thing to ensure we don't get too eager, right? I know having a toddler around doesn't help ;-) But we've got babysitters lined up every night this week. Dh & I are playing in a ice hockey tournament to raise money for breast cancer and we have our season finale with our coed team. 7 games of hockey in 5 days (that might just be the reason I don't see AF this week!)
Mary - go and get it checked out if it takes 6 mos (but I hope it doesn't). It certainly couldn't hurt and it doesn't mean anything is wrong. You might just want/need a little boost like Clomid or something.
Lisa - you and I seem to have similar problems at the same time. I didn't post bc I couldn't and it was too long ago to be logical anymore - but I had to wipe my computer clean recently. Now our basement bathroom just had the floor taken out (we are still in flood repair mode). I really hope those symptoms turn out to be something! I a soooo glad that you are inching up the timeline, LOL.
Erin - it is really hard to tell bc the temp was taken at the wrong time. Seems like the CF is off though. I can't wait to see what happens tomm...that is really the only way to tell!
Ruby - way to show dedication to TTCing after all that other exhausting work :) It is also fun to see everything come to life from your imagination though.
AFM, I have been getting much more cramping. When I sit for too long, I get a cramp in my lower abdomen - it almost feels like the "stitch" in running? I have never had cramps with AF (or even during my first pregnancy) so I have no idea what this is!
CASSIE - peak reading, woot woot! *wink*
DEE & LISA - strange cramping, sore BBS, sounds good! Can't wait to see what the next few days bring!
ERIN - With your CF the way it is, I'd guess O is still on the way... soon hopefully.
RUBY - let the GOFO games begin! GL with your busy week!
Waving *hi* to everyone else!
You know Dee,you're right, I think we are similar in a lot of ways :-) Here's hoping its the month for both of us. :-D
Gosh, guys! We get our own board and the TTCers get quiet!
I'm still twiddling my thumbs, waiting to see if I really O'ed. I now think it may have happened on CD20, but I'm also open to the fact that it still might be on the way. Hopefully tomorrow's temp skyrockets (or tanks) and gets me out of the ambiguous territory.
I think part of it is that the TTC group is a bit on the smaller side than it was.
I'd like to think that it is restraint but it is actually fugality that has me waiting for Sat :) We don't have cheap tests here, you can buy a bulk pack that amounts to about $10 a test and I only have 2 left...hopefully that is all I will ever need.
Erin - I honestly think temping is fun. I stopped charting after my first pregnancy. But it is nice to know what your body is doing. Eventually you'll figure yourself out, LOL. CD20 looks like a good guess to me too.
Jenni - It is tough when the mood doesn't match the right timing. I guess you have to try some new seduction techniques ;-) Sounds like a fabulous weekend though.
AFM, my temp spiked and dived so I'm not sure what is happening. I am still above the coverline but I am feeling confident. We are headed out on vacation this Sat for 10 days. I will be able to check the internet while I am visiting my mother. I'd LOVE to have news to share with her. It would be great to do in person. She is superstitous and will scold me for telling anyone before 12 weeks, haha.
