Kate - I have the opposite problem with my cycles - they're so long! About 32-33 days on avg.

Mandy - Sorry about the rough day. Go have a glass of wine or some good chocolate! I keep a bag in my desk at work. ;-)

As for my parents, not sure if you guys meant close as in distance or relationship style, but we are close knit and they live about 45 min from us. Hope that helps!

ETA: Oh and for a gift amount, I'd like to keep it under $100. We usually don't spend hundreds of dollars on gifts for one another.

No WINE :-( lol!! And NO CHOCOLATE :-( Though I am debating making some brownies.

I mean close as in relationhip. Like if it was my mom and former step dad I would got them a gift card to their fave place to eat (sushi). And maybe make a photobook of them throughout the years (cause my mom and ex step dad were all into photography.) But we werent too close. And I am on a tight budget.

Allison: Happy Anniversary.

Jan: You're not out until AF shows... hang in there lady.

Mandy: Sorry about the rough day.

Christine: 25th anniversary is the silver one... maybe a nice picture frame, a new serving bowl (pewter not silver), some sort of chac-key that goes w/ their house decor. Macy's is a good place to go and wander for ideas. Get yourself a fancy coffee, strap Selin in her stroller and just browse.

AFM: lots and lots and lots of goopy sticky discharge yesterday. No BD however, w/ DH's fibro it is really a hit or miss in the bedroom.

Jan: Yes, he has fibromylgia. He's had very bad symptoms for over 2 years, after years of mild ones, and was DXed in Feb. It is very rare for a man to have it, but they do (he has company in his on-line support groups, LOL); however because it's mostly women that get it the treatments are geared to women, and most of them cause infertility in men.

Kate, I hope DH is feeling better soon.

I haven't tested, but I'm still thinking about it. Breasts are still very sore. I'm not sleeping well but feeling exhausted. I haven't mentioned my thoughts to DH because he made a comment a few days ago about sticking with three for awhile. I know he would be happy, but his comment made me nervous.

Good friends in PA just announced that they are expecting their fourth. I was shocked by one very rude comment on Facebook when the mommy-to-be made her announcement. This lady literally said that she felt sorry for the couple with so many mouths to feed and the daddy should keep his pants on and they'll need a bigger house.. I was like WHAT?!?!? I had to leave a comment saying what an amazing blessing children are.

Jan- Sorry about the BFN.  How are you feeling? 

Erica- How exciting that you have symptoms!  Here’s hoping you get exactly what you want- whatever that is!  :smileywink:  And, eww!  How rude of your FB friend’s friend to comment like that.  I really wish people would think before they speak.

Kate- Remind me what your official status is now… TTC, NPP, WTT?

Mandy- Sorry about your no good, terrible, bad day!  Hope today was better.

Christine- I was going to suggest the same thing as Kate- something silver since it’s the silver anniversary.  Hope you are feeling better!

Alison- yay for new supplements.  I’m trying to remember your history.  Is it that you have endo?  If so, did you end up getting a surgery to remove?  I remember reading the threads for TTC, but its been awhile.  Please don't answer if you don't want to talk about it!

AFM- I'm pretty sure I O'd so now I am just waiting on FF to confirm, but I am calling 2WW. :smileywink: MIL in town this weekend and she's going to babysit so DH and I can go out and celebrate our anniversary before he goes out of town on business.  I'm really looking forward to a nice dinner and some time alone!  :smileyhappy:

-Suzie :)

Hey.... there's nothing wrong with 6 or 7 years between kiddos... ;-)

Erica: I would tell DH how you're feeling. It's one of two things right... your PG or AF is finally coming back. Either way it would be helpful for him to know what's going on and supportive.

Suzie: That's a good looking chart. We're NTNP. TTC is set for later this year; assuming nothing happens between now and then.
