Hi Erin! So nice to be able to call you something more than E! :-)

All I need is your edd, which I have from your other post. All of the roll call tickers are from the same site so I just plug in your date and it gives me the code for the ticker.

Enjoy the BFP high! When will you tell your families?

Will do Amy when I'm back home in a few days.

Quick update on our trip - things have been SO much better with Selin since DH got here last night so I think all of her acting out was due to her missing him. Phew!

So DD had her birthday party today! Such a GREAT day! She got way tooo much stuff but she had a BLAST! I am glad that she got *smart* presents. 4 pairs of shoes, tons of clothes, and books and puzzles and a bunch of Art stuff and an art easel! She did get a few toys but not too much! She loved playing with her BFF in her brand new pool (we ordered ap ool of target.com that has a mini water slide perfect for her and her bff (2years old).

AFM- AF is being mean to me! She has given me horrid cramps but her flow has been way unpredictable....light to medium... so I have a feeling this is gonna be a long period. (instead of my normal 1 light day 1 med. 1 heavy 1 light) Oh well. I am excited to get onto TTC! My bff is talking about TTC as soon as I get my BFP. She doesnt want to be due the same month as me so that she can be there in the delivery room and help with my DD. I would be just thrilled to have our next kids close together. Our girls are 9mos apart and they are best friends.....inseperable! Anywho.

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE!! (WE are having weird weather over here....dry thunder and lightening storms....no rain...so odd)

All these BFPs around here are making me feel the itch!!!! Especially since my BFF got married yesterday and are planning to TTC ASAP after they get back from their honeymoon.
Suzie- We are planning to go to my mom's next weekend, so I will take dress pics then! Crossing my fingers that I've lost enough weight so it will zip!! :smileyfrustrated: lol

The best advice I got about fertility signs is to focus on CM.  Your temp can be influenced by so many factors, and in terms of ovulation, your temp can really only tell you that you are already O'd, not that you are going to.  If you do some "baby making" when you have lots of fertile CM, you aren't going  miss it!  Your temp is useful for seeing if you might be pregnant and for better understanding your cycle overall, but if you want to catch that egg, pay close attention to CM.

We use natural family planning for both prevention and for getting pregnant, and I gave up temping years ago.  I'm not saying that you should not temp!  Everyone's different.  But I am saying that even if your temps aren't making a lot of sense during a particular cycle, you can still have a successful cycle if you are responding to fertile CM.

(You can ignore all of this if you are one of those people who doesn't have a lot of CM or a regular pattern of CM.) :smileyhappy:
