Yah, BOO on no ticker siggies! LOL. We're a bunch of ticker pushers, love it. :)

I'm just over here silently and eagerly awaiting news from Dee and Lisa!

Hi ladies, so

I've noticed its quieter on here too. I know I am partly to blame, because I am getting busier. True, I do post surveys below instead of in here, but I also have had to actually get back into work mode more.

I think there are a few causes for the the quietness in here- 1. Many of us have moved onto the PG board, and the group is smaller, and thus there is less talking. 2. We are all in lull time... possible BFP time is exciting, and lots of talking, but the other times we all have less to say. 3. Surveys being below. The biggest problem of the surveys being in a separate section is that we don't respond to each others comments on there as much, which I think is part of the fun. On the other hand, if I didn't post it in there, then a lot less people would be able to answer it. Maybe I will try to do some TTC surveys and some group surveys.

Heather- I plan on temping and testing on Sunday. My spotting normally occurs day 26, that would be Sat. So if I make it to Sunday, that's a good sign. I want to temp that day as well to see if it is high or low before I use a test... but I probably will test either way.

Jen- I saw your post, but I am not a chart expert...but I know many of these ladies are great at looking at charts, I am sure they can help. :-D

My newest IPS is that I felt seriously nauseous at the gym yesterday, and even Blake could tell that I wasn't feeling great. But, as he is so kind to point out, I could just be getting sick. The funny thing is that I forced myself to finish the class anyways... want to know my motivation? Because I thought to myself, that this nausea isn't as bad as labor will be, so if I can't finish my class how can I push out a baby? :-P lol. Thought you guys would enjoy that.

I'm going to post a survey below in a minute (See "Back to School" in the fun section), but I'm going to post a TTC specific one in here too, to keep the board going.

There is a song with lyrics "Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative, ..." So... although we are all hoping and wishing for BFPs, meanwhile we should celebrate what good things BFNs bring us. :-D

With that in mind, here is my TTC survey

What PG symptom are you most excited about not experiencing atm?

What is the best evening that you and your DH have enjoyed lately, which you couldn't have done with kids?

What is a difficult thing about babies that you are glad you aren't dealing with yet?

What is a difficult thing about toddlers that you are glad you aren't dealing with yet?
(above two are better for TTC #1 people, but Dee, tailor them to things that you are glad you don't have to deal with 2 kids yet)

Why was last month not the right time?

What is one thing you are really enjoying about life right now that you couldn't have with kids (or with 2 kids Dee :-D )?

Enjoy both surveys :-)

I get patches of EWCM on days that I get creamy as well. My patterns never seem to be straightforward. It's SO frustrating trying to tell "leftovers" from true EWCM, but I always record EW to be on the safe side. You're supposed to record the most fertile signs you have, so I'd keep DTD until you don't notice any more EW. Any time you plug in wet or EW in FF it will tell you you're fertile so that you don't miss any opportunities.

I think I might know what you're talking about with the discomfort. My first few months off the pill were like that, and I'm pretty sure it was a form of O pain. I still get it, but to a much lesser degree (like a few minutes instead of half a day or more).

I'm no OPK expert, but I do know that for some women, they simply "don't work" or they don't catch the surge. To be safe, don't rely on them as the sole O predictor.

Hope that helps!

No worries about it being quiet! With so many "graduates" it was bound to get a little quieter around here.

What PG symptom are you most excited about not experiencing atm?

Exhaustion. With cleaning and packing preparing for the move, I'm SO glad that I feel good and have a lot of energy! Plus, I'd hate to be tired for the drive itself...

What is the best evening that you and your DH have enjoyed lately, which you couldn't have done with kids?

Any dinner/movie night would be much harder with kids. And we do that a lot.

What is a difficult thing about babies that you are glad you aren't dealing with yet?

Waking in the night. I love my sleep!

What is a difficult thing about toddlers that you are glad you aren't dealing with yet?

Tantrums. Colds.

Why was last month not the right time?

It would have been a major pain with the move and timing doctor visits would have been a hassle.

What is one thing you are really enjoying about life right now that you couldn't have with kids?

Sleep! (a common theme...)

Jen - Your first cycle off of BCPs can be very confusing.

Lisa – Strange that at this point, nausea is a good thing, right?
