The lighting is kinda cruddy. But there is a red one near the orange haoween one. (They both look kinda orange).

Soooo hows everyones weekends going?!

Mandy - The korkers are super cute! Just curious, how did you become a GB fan living in CA? ;-)

Jan - Sorry about AF. On to the next!

Kate - Sorry to hear about your DHs condition. Glad he has his own ivillage-type place to go to!

Erica - Wow, I can't believe that lady's comment about your friend's pgcy announcement! I would seriously reconsider my friendship with that woman if someone wrote something like that on my wall. I also second Kate's suggestion about having a chat with your DH just to bring him up to speed on your cycle.  

Suzie - Hope you had a nice visit with your MIL and enjoyed your dinner out with DH!

Waving *hi* to everyone else!

AFM - I am feeling much better - thanks for all the well wishes! Of course on Friday I had to endure endless questions from my colleagues about my absence (Are you feeling better? How are you feeling? Etc Etc) Guess that's what happens when you work with 20+ other women! LOL

We had my parents over for dinner tonight, DH bbq'd and we had a really nice time. Since I procrastinated and it was a super crazy week at work for me I ended up just getting them some giftcards to one of their fav restaurants. I was thinking maybe I could tie in a silver gift at Christmas. They weren't expecting anything beyond us having them over for dinner so they were really touched at the giftcards.

Not much else new here. I'll be Oing about a week from now. Maintaining a calm approach so far this cycle but I'm sure in a week that will all change. LOL

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Lol Christine There are surprisingly a lot of GB fans in the area. I didn't become a fan until adulthood... And its a culmination of family influence and friend influence and learning about the game through watching this team. :smileyhappy: DHs whole family are GB fans too so it makes it even more fun!

It sounds like your parents had a good time and it really is the thought that counts andyou did put a lot of thought into making things special for them!

Yay for calm. I am always calm preO. It's a out a week or so after that I turn into crazy over thinking obsessing person! Lol! I still feel really calm despite being pretty sure I Od today. We have been consistent with GOFO so maybe that helps me... Knowing we did all we could.

Mandy: The bows are great. So cute.

Christine: Sounds like your little party went well.

Church picnic today. We had a ton of rain yesterday and everything is so wet. The picnic starts w/ Mass at 11am and then the food and games start at noon. But I'm thinking we may go a little afternoon, give everything a chance to dry more before we have one really wet 18 month old.

Mandy - Ack to back-to-school!! Do you generally enjoy it or is it just too stressful? And enjoy your GOFOing. :smileywink:

Kate - I'm sorry D's fibromyalgia gets in the way of your BDing! That has to be frustrating, especially during the *key* days.

Erica - Seriously!??! Lemme guess, that "friend" is a bitter jealous frenemy from high school? Ugh, what nerve. I hope she was defriended immediately!

Suzie - No worries, I'm an open book - I don't talk about it, so I HAVE to 'type' about it or else I go nuts! :smileyhappy: Nope, no endo. Our issue is that I have PCOS and rarely ovulate. Other than that I'm physically "fine" - hormone levels aren't bad, no sign of diabetes, insulin levels fine, and my HSG was all clear; no cysts. DH's swimmers are perfect too. I don't handle stress well at ALL so I'm sure that's hindering proper ovulation. That and I'm quite overweight which is mainly PCOS induced, and I've never totally believed the theory that overweight = infertile. (I mainly eat gluten-free now, and also do juicing weekends every other month or so to lose 5-10 lbs per weekend.)

Jan - Sorry. :smileysad:

Hi to all else!


AFM - CD5 means first day of Clomid! I'm now on EIGHT pills/day - 3 clomid, 3 of the new supplement, 1 prenatal and 1 metformin. I had to line them all up in an ice cube tray to keep track. Yeesh!!  Anyway, I'm nervous about O again because during those key days, I have some stuff going on that will be make me uber-stressed and anxious (I have a mild case of SAD (social anxiety disorder))  so I REALLY hope the triple-dose of Clomid does the trick.

Alison: FX the triple dose of clomid does it. FWIW; DH takes 8 pills a day, everyday, and uses one of those old people pill boxes to keep it all straight.

Mandy: Hang in there, O will happen if it hasn't already.


We didn't make it to Mass, Teddy took the world's longest nap this morning. But the picnic was great fun and super yummy.

I'm on day 2 of watery CM; the 2 days before that were super sticky, super thick, and kind of brown, sorry TMI. So even if we managed to DTD the playground wasn't really open for business.

Alison I generally love it but this year is just insane. Since I am the stronger teacher they got smart and gave me a lot of the kids with issues. It's super tough right now and I am having a hard time with it. Luckily the principal is on my side and we are making it work together but it is just so frustrating in the meantime. I keep joking that my doctors gonna pull me out and put me on leave for being overly stressed!! But part of me can totally see that happening!


Alison good luck with all that!! That's a lot of pills!

Kate glad you had fun at the picnic.

Kate, glad you had fun at the picknick. 

Allison, good luck with all of those pills and everything going on. FX that it all falls into place. 

Hi to all the other ladies. 

 

Hi! I know I said I needed a break but I never really left. I have been lurking and just not posting much as I didn't have much to say. After over 5 weeks my HCG's are finally back down where they were suppose to be in a not pregnany person.  My first post MC AF started on Monday. She should be on her way out. So I guess we are in the waiting game now. I am torn, as my NP wants me to wait 3 months. I don't know if August counts or not but I am couting it. Which puts us trying again in Nov. Which timing wise really stinks as I didn't really want an Aug baby being that so many other things have their day that month. But I don't want to wait either as that puts us months from Simon turning 3 and other things.  I guess we will wait and see. 

 Cassie
