I was relieved he felt up to it! hehe.

And yay for the +OPK! I didn't even know they made happy face ones. That makes me want to try them out! ha. Sorry about the abdominal pain though. Pain during sex is awful. If it doesn't get better in the next few days, I'd think about seeing a doctor. You never know if it could be an infection or something. Hope it's just cycle wonkiness though!

Yep, my temps don't mess around when I O, which is why I knew that this CD17 business wasn't right. Now it's just got to stay there. :)

Sorry you're having a bum week, but that's great that your appt went well! It's so nice to find someone you really like and who takes your personal history into consideration. I heart the CNP/MW that has done my annuals here, but with the move I have to start my search over. Not looking forward to that much.

Here's something to help you shake the funk! It's been on the radio a lot and I find that it's impossible to be grumpy listening to this song. :)

Thanks for that song Erin! Too cute and totally put a smile on my face. :) It's sooooo hot here today isn't it!? DH is working late so I think I'm going to make a mini batch of strawberry margaritas, play Diner Dash and go to sleep early, LOL. Tomorrow's a new day.

FX that your temps stay high - you guys had nice timing this month! Do you know people where you're moving (was it south carolina?) Hopefully you can get a recommendation for a good CNP/MW in your new area.

Have a great weekend!

Erin: I love the smiley faces (and not just because it’s a smiley face J), but because you don’t have to try and interpret the lines.

Yes Erin that song is very chipper, thanks for sharing!!


I think I am out :) I had tons of spotting today (then I played 2 games of ice hockey so things slowed down again). But I fully expect tomm to be an AF full force day. It always seems like I get her when I'm travelling!! I am leaving tomm for a 10 day vacation. My first AF after Dylan was born I was travelling for 15 hours on 3 plane rides to Florida...super heavy wasn't enough...every time I picked Dylan up, my insides flipped upside down. But it was a blessing in that it only lasted 2 days bc of all that, LOL.


One thing I am happy about is that those cramps weren't pregnancy symptoms. I was kind of worried I would have a whole trimester of that, YUCK!!!


See you all in a few days when I get online again. I'll be remote only 4 days ;-)

Dee, I'm sorry to hear that your out. I was really hoping it would be your month even when it wasn't mine. I'm totally done too. Guess this weekend wasn't as exciting after all. :-P AF arrived today. One nice thing about that though is that it should be almost over if not over by the time I am out of town on Tuesday, so that's nice.

I think its time for me to do my survey lol

What PG symptom are you most excited about not experiencing atm?
Nausea... except I still feel it off and on lol, but I think it is getting better, and if I was PG it would get worse.

What is the best evening that you and your DH have enjoyed lately, which you couldn't have done with kids?
Spontaneous GOFO time with doors and windows open. (sorry if tmi, oh, and we weren't close to any of the windows...) :-D

What is a difficult thing about babies that you are glad you aren't dealing with yet?
Getting up at night and not being able to sleep soundly.

What is a difficult thing about toddlers that you are glad you aren't dealing with yet? Their constant need for attention during meals etc. The need to deal with them almost every moment they are awake.

Why was last month not the right time?
Two reasons this month really wasn't great. 1- my MIL's trip. I need to call her in a day or two and tell her that she can plan as much as she wants in May, its safe. 2- While I didn't feel bad having a due date somewhere before the end of school, I did feel like May is so close to the end, that I would actually regret not getting my last month with the class. Now, every month after this I will be able to finish the school year, and I think that would be great!

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 )? Just being spontaneous, both with GOFO, or going out to dinner, or going up to the mountains. All of those will require more time and effort and usually babysitters. So, life is good.

Also, other than my IPS, I didn't have high hopes for this cycle. Our timing was off because of the weekend trip during the right time on one side, and on the other side, I might have stopped GOFO too early if I O'd later (which I am not sure which side was bad because I wasn't charting).

This month we are going to TRY for a baby. Hard core. Chart stalkers will be happy to know I plan to temp again, and we are going to try for an ED schedule around the fertile time with (sigh) 30 minutes to an hour laying there afterwards (I am really not looking forward to that lol). DH even said that even if he isn't in the mood, I can tell him that I need a sperm deposit, and we will at least get a quickie in for that purpose... and then I will lay there (Some nights that will be longer than the GOFO lol). I really think Sept. due date would be great timing, and so we are going to do all we can to make it happen. Like one of my favorite songs says," Work like its all up to me, and pray like its all up to Him." I know that there is still a chance it won't happen with all this effort, but at least we couldn't say there is something more we should do.

I think part of the reason we haven't been this hard core before is because we knew that during the school year wasn't as good of timing as a summer due date, but we were willing to risk it... just not push it, you know? But now that all that is past, we can really go for it.

Yay for a new month, and a new game plan!

Hi ladies! Mind if I join you? Don't worry about putting me on the August list - it can wait until September :)

In case we haven't chatted much on the WTT board, my name is Alyssa (30) and DH is Kyle (28). We have been married almost a year (Sept. 13th) and have been WTT pretty much since then.

Our "official" TTC date is September 1st, but I just got a whole ton of EWCM today, so we're going to start TTCing right away! I'm pretty excited, but nervous and scared too! It feels so strange to have an "ulterior" motive for sex! Haha!

Anyway, I'm pretty excited to finally join the TTCer, and can't wait to get to know all of you better (but I hope everyone "graduates" soon!).



Thanks to Katie for my wonderful siggie!
