A massage sounds wonderful!! And I am too cheap to buy FF advanced too! So as I suspected O date is confirmed as Thursday... My funky Temps day. Not sure that Ivan totally trust it. But I did have a good amount of EWCM that afternoon so it is possible. But either way our BD pattern has been consistent. So either we catch it or we don't... I am ready to know lol! I hate waiting!! Haha. Luckily I have been so busy that waiting isn't bothering me as much.

Mandy,

Hope your pgcy dream is a reality! Good luck with first week of school next week. The county fair sounds fun! We don't have anything like that where I live (big city).

I am in the same boat as you re the 2ww. I have two big dips on my chart and now my temp is going up but still no O date confirmed. If I had to guess I'd say I'm about 4 DPO. I looked at the FF website and it seems a lot of the features that used to be free are now part of the VIP package. Boo. I'm still too cheap to buy it though, lol.

Just got home from my massage and it was heavenly! I am going to cancel my other membership and go to this lady instead. She is a friend of our sitter and will be licensed in a month. She is walking distance from our house and her rates are much lower than what I'm paying at the big chain. And she said she massaged her daughter throughout her pgcy and said she would be comfortable massaging me too when I'm PG. So excited I can continue my indulgences! ;-)

I have been checking in on my phone... This week has been our county fair- we go often since it is free admission and a small town where we all can reunite lol. And with school straying Monday I have been busy with lesson plans and last minute prep.

Still no pinpointed O date.... So no idea what's going on there. We have kept up BDing JIC. Hopefully FF will give me something soon. Yesterday I had a big spike above all other temps and today is pretty much the same exact temp but one tenth lower. Still super high compared to my other temps. Soaybe by Monday I will have an idea o how far into the 2WW I am.

I did have a wicked pregnancy dream outa no where last night. Pretty realistic lol

Suzie - Boo for a temp dive! Holding out hope for you!

Erica - Glad you had a good anniversary. 

Kate - I agree on the whole temping thing. Just waiting to POAS stresses me out. Let alone something daily to worry over. Yeah on the 4.0. 

Hi everyone else! 

AFM - not sure what is going on. I keep getting radom spotting or bleeding or whatever you want to call it. I had some on Tuesday an then again yesterday. Not sure what is up. I just want AF to show and things to get back to normal. I have a follow up appointment on Monday. Test my blood levels one more time to make sure everything is where it is suppose to be. See when she says we can start TTC again. Things are looking good on the house. I think our three days should be up today. However, attempting to get a spetic inspection is going to drive me nuts! my husband and I have each called and no one will call us back!

Suzie -- I was really hoping this was it for you. Still hoping...

Christine -- It sounds like you've found a nice community at your school. I'm happy for you!

Kate -- Yay!!! I'm really excited about your training and your 4.0! Good for you. Isn't the science of breastfeeding AMAZING?!

AFM: We had a very nice anniversary. There was no BDing though. That's okay. We still have a really great day. We follow the traditional anniversary gifts (1st is paper, 2nd is cotton, etc.). Eleven is steel. Not very romantic, but it worked out great! DH took me shopping to buy new flatwear (stainless steel). We got our flatwear for a wedding gift, and we've lost a lot of spoons (thanks to a sweet little first grader). All of the pieces are pretty beat up. So I really enjoyed picking out a beautiful set. I bougth DH a set of grilling utensils. They are stainless steel, and they came in a really nice case. DH also gave me a bouquet of HUGE red roses, a chocolate bar, and he really surprised me with a replacement bowl and dessert plate for our dishes that we got for our wedding. We went out to dinner after church and spent the rest of the day working on the house. Just a nice day. :smileyhappy:

Still no sign of O or AF since that one day of CM, and that's fine with me!

Suzie: I'm sorry... but just remember you're not out until AF arrives. Sorry about the fever, Teddy had a high one for a few hours yesterday as well. It just came, he slept a lot, and it was gone.

Christine: I'm glad school is keeping you so busy, it seems like just yesterday you were doing your student teaching.

Well you guys have made me officially NOT want to temp... all this guessing and worrying and wondering, I'm to anxious for that. I would drive myself nuts.

I finished the first part of my Breastfeeding Consultant course with a 4.0!! So proud of myself. I've learned more about how breastmilk is made and it's composition that I could ever have thought possible. The next part of my class is on prenatal and PP education and care. This part I am so excited about.

Keep your fingers crossed this evening. I call at 5pm to see if I have to serve jury duty next week. If I get the call I'll need to reschedule my MW appointment for Monday.

I'm so sorry Suzie. :-( Hope you're feeling better today.

Glad Grey did great on the planes! Have a great weekend!

Afm - FF still has not pinpointed an O date for me so not sure what to make of my chart. Just trying to go with the flow and be patient. Luckily school has been keeping me pretty busy. Today is our last inservice and everyone has been SO incredibly friendly and welcoming to me. My principal stressed again that family comes first and that they are totally supportive whenever a family situation arises so that is awesome. Got my schedule yesterday and as of now I don't have any classes on Fridays so unless a teacher wants to use the lab then I have the whole day for prep/maintenance. Woohoo!

BFN yesterday and temp crash today. Temp probably would have fallen yesterday, but I had a random fever for 12 hrs. It was pretty cruel of mother nature to do that to me bc i only have one chart withh tge temp going up at 11dpo... :/ The really sucky thing is that I felt so confident I must be PG bc of the feeling in my bbs. I expect AF any time now.

Grey was a fantastic traveller! He behaved so well and was so cute! 2 plane rides down and 2 more on Sunday. Tomorrow is BFF's wedding. I'm excited to celebrate with her :smileyhappy:

-Suzie :)

Mandy I would throw your thermometer out the window and start using a fertility monitor. I have a friend that swears by the Clear Blue Easy one. Then you have a better idea when you Oed and don't have to worry about temp changes and getting up to early, too late...
