Mon, 07-30-2012 - 9:19pm

Christine asked we start the threads tonight. I think we set a new record with our last post lol. Probably time for a new thread before our old one bring down the system! :smileywink:

I think most of us are all trying now so just going to call it TTC chat again but those waiting of course feel free to post as normal! :smileyhappy:

When did you start trying?

Are you temping?

Would you like to share a link to your chart?

Where are you at in your cycle?

Lol Christine we must have cross posted!! haha! I always take a bit to post... watching TV at the same time...

I have noticed a diff in FF onlline and on my phone. I mostly use my mobile app so I dont pay too much attention. And since I dont have the avance my phone has better features IMO.

Gladd your first teaching day went well. And boy do I feel you on issue children. I have TWO MAJOR problem kids with equally problemed parents this year (our classes are 12 to 15 students) and several others who are way below level and my class is the advanced class. :/

Christine I hope you can hol out till Friday. :-) This week wil fly!

And Christine obviously I updated how I am doing in my cross post but thanks for asking! I mean I am super SAD that this wasnt the month. But I am hopeful that the month will come soon. Just really hoping that it happens before November... I really dont want another August baby. So we would prolly take a break if it got there...jsut hoping we dont even have to worry about it. AF is being a little more WICKED this month too so I am hoping that is a good sign- it is much more like my pre-IUD AFs. Crampy, heavier flow, headache, major tired. Last month was a super light AF with not too many other signs. Glad to see something normal coming out of this even if it is AF! lol

Well AF is due tomorrow so we'll see what my temp does but I'm pretty sure I'm out. I feel crampy and have been seeing cm streaked with light brown when I wipe.

I need to talk to DH to discuss if we're just going to keep trying the rest of the year or wait till next year to aim for a spring 2014 baby so I could have a longer leave. I'm torn because by then I'd be 35 and high risk and Selin would be 4 which is a bigger gap than we wanted. Also this sounds selfish but I really don't want to be hugely PG next summer. If I got pg this cycle I'd be due in May which would've been perfect as our last day of school is May 31st. Sigh, TTC sucks!! I do have a frozen drink package waiting for me in our fridge if I'm not PG. :-)

Ugh sorry Christine!! :smileysad: maybe try next cycle (June dd) and then put it on hold!? I mean if on hold is what you really want.

I know that summer is more ideal for me but I am not stopping till I have a bun in my oven lol!! So even if I am due on the first day of school or whatever I am still gin a keep trying. :/

Started my vitamin C and my prenatal vitamin yesterday. Also working on bulking up my diet with fruits and veggies. :smileyhappy: and some more milk. Also cuttin out my coffees out and replacing it with a cup of diet coke. (way less calories and caffine). Little changes :smileyhappy:

DD had her three year check up not much to report. She is normal.

Ugh!!! My BFF just had me over for dinner.

She's preggo! An she's not keeping it :smileysad:. She's knows I am trying and that all I want is a baby and here I am crying over my period to her just two days ago and now she is crying over being pregnant and not being able to keep it!! :smileysad: I feel awful for her and here's the kicker I feel like a crummy friend cause I had to try and fake it through our convo because I would give my whole soul to be preggo and she would give hers to not be!!! It is hard to confort her knowing how badly I want what she is throwing away. Granted her situation is far from ideal. ugh!

Thanks! :/ I hope she gets that. It was super hard but I live her and I want what she wants for herself and her life and I want her to be happy but this is just a hard topic right now. Either way I feel for her and hope she can get to where she wants to be quickly. I offered to help or watch her daughter and such.

Thanks again..

Ps- forgot to mention yay for cross hairs!! GL!! :smileyhappy: and staying calm is always harder than it seems!

Mandy,

I agree with Jan. it is hard though. I was on FB last night and found out a girl in my LLL group is pg with #3. Her first two are less than 18 mos apart and I think #2 and #3 will be as well. Just wish I could be a SAHM and not have to worry about planning my kids around my job. Oh well.

Jan - Yay for crosshairs! Love your 2ww attitude. :-)

Afm - Well my temp didn't crash this morning so maybe AF is running late. Hope to wait out these next few days.

Lol Jan! I am the same way! Hoping I can try to CALM my butt down this cycle lol!!

 

So I thought AF was on her way out today. Woke up with nothing but a lil brown. And then BAM outa no where this afternoon I got a flow this afternoon. LAME! Okay AF time to take a HIKE haha! (On the plus side this is totally normal for my old normal AFs so that is slightly good. :-)!!)

Jan - Thanks for the reassurance about 35 being the new 25. ;-)

Well on to the next cycle for me too. DH is super bummed we didn't get lucky on the first try again but I told him only DTD twice during (what I thought was) my fertile window wasn't really enough to up our chances so hopefully he'll take it more seriously this cycle.

Come on ladies, let's see some BFPs!!
