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?

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.

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!

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!

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.

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. :-)

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

Mandy - we must've cross posted! ;-)

So this is weird...

I just looked at my FF calendar in the app and it said AF is forecasted for Wed but when I go to the FF mobile site it says Friday?? Anyone else have a discrepancy like this before?? I thought FF was all the same no matter the platform.

If its more like Friday then for sure I'lltry to hold out for the weekend. This week better fly. ;-)

Sooo Hows everyone?!

 

CD 2 over here. Ready to get this cycle on the road. :-) I start prenatals today. I had been forgetting to pick them up at the store and finally got them in hopes of getting a BFP last cycle. Since I have them (and I know its good to take them while TTC) I decided to start taking them now. :-) Maybe the extra vitamins will help a little! I think I am also gonna go get some preseed. Still on the fence about that...but maybe... I mean this is only cycle two and we NTNP in July-Sept when TTC DD and then we TTC Sept/Oct/Nov. and finally got our BFP...so maybe I just need to wait it out a little. Try NOT to stress it and just go with it. But I mean last month I felt more relaxed up until O and slightly after. But I suck at the 2WW.

Anywho. This thread has gotten soooo quiet. :-)

 

Hi Suzie! Keep it up talking to Grey about the new school and tell him what you know about it. Act like you really like it and are really happy and that all will create his attitude about it. :-) GL!

Mandy - How are you today? Thinking of you.

Kate - Yay for cd1!

Suzie - Hope third time is the charm for you! Sorry to hear about Grey's behaviors. Sounds like exactly what I went through with Selin on our trip to Canada. No real advice just (((HUGS))).

Afm - today was my first day of classes with the kids and I am beat! Overall things went well. It's funny how you can tell within 5 min which kids are going to give you problems, lol.

Still waiting to see what my cycle decides to do. AF is due Wed but since I O'd late I don't know if my cycle is going to be lengthened then. I'm already on cd32 so hope it doesn't drag on too much longer! Trying to hold out till the weekend to test as I only have one test left. I think Suzie said it best that TTC is a true test of patience!!
