JEN - I don't think you're crazy for talking to your stomach. After I O I definitely make a few comments in the general direction of the uterus. I tell that little mung bean to find a spot and get ta' stickin'! :)

ALYSSA - GL to your DH on that job interview!

MARI - Thanks for the allergy sympathy. :) And congrats again on your exciting news about your little boy! :)

JENNI - Oooo, I see that temp going up! Go go go! You're testing on Friday right?

RUBY - Those bathroom colors sound great! I always like the drama a little striping can bring to a room, but I'm so afraid we'd do them crooked or something!

MARY - what on earth is up with your temps!? Do you think you O'd yesterday??? That's such a crazy random spike so early! (scratching head) You gotta wait a couple more days so we can stay cycle buddies. :) We're gonna start the tactical GOFO'ing tonight and then have a big hurrah all through the long weekend (nice timing).

AFM - I'm feeling much better now that I know what's going on with these allergies. Thanks for all the sympathy and ideas. I definitely hope to manage it without taking allergy meds every day. As for TTC, I'm feeling really relaxed this cycle (definitely less nerves than the big FIRST cycle TTC!) DH and I have both been really busy with work and with social stuff on the weekends which is making the time fly by, which is great. I hope the 2ww goes by as fast. :)

Ohhh, MARY, just saw your re-posted post :) and realized maybe your temp is high because you're still sick??? If so I hope you get well really soon!!

Mary - I hope you feel better soon, and that you're able to keep your stress level down. I really find it affects my cycle as well. We don't have any big plans for the Labor Day weekend (I keep forgetting about it) - but I'm meeting a friend in Toronto to see a Cirque du Soleil show on Friday!

I agree with Jenni to not worry about missing one day - especially if you're going to GOFO ED soon! Fingers crossed for you!

Andi - that's great you're feeling more relaxed this cycle. I was really nervous this time around. So, if we aren't PG, hopefully I'll be a bit more calm next cycle!

Jenni - I figure there's nothing wrong with having positive thoughts about being PG, but I can understand it being disappointing if it doesn't happen :( You had great timing this cycle though, so I'm sending you lots of positive thoughts! I'm so jealous of your trip to a cabin!

AFM - FF changed my O date to Monday, which makes way more sense! So, at least our GOFOing on the weekend was timed pretty well! Our anniversary is on the 13th, so I hope to wait until then to test (unless AF comes before then) - we'll see if I can do it.

Hi ladies, I'm back. Jenni, I am excited to hear what the next few days bring for you, and based off of the charts, it looks like a lot of people will be coming up on testing time soon.

I did read everything, but I am not going to try to do personals for all those posts :-p lol, I'll catch up as I go, and just say some things that I remember.

Alyssa, I will probably get a Joelle siggie whenever I can get my DH to take more pictures with me. The last one I have is the one I used for my ticker, and I don't love it, and I would like to have a few that rotate, but he hates taking pictures. The other thing is that he has lost a lot of weight since the last time I had him take a lot of pictures, and so I don't want to use those because you can see it in his face, and I just feel like it wouldn't do justice to him to have a siggie with those now outdated pics. We'll see.

Ruby (I think?) We are discouraged from bringing any electronics but our cell phones up to the retreat, not that a laptop would help anyways because there is no internet there. Its kind of about being away from it all... so Skype wouldn't work, but thanks for the suggestion. We talked on the phone each night, and since I left Tuesday morning, and am back Thurs afternoon, I really only had to go Wed without him, you know... so not so bad.

Jenni(I think?) I agree it wasn't ovulation, and it would have be extremely weird if it was. I am wondering if my taking the evening primrose oil is what is making my temps consistently around 97.5 which is normal the first "high" temp after O for me... I also added my ticker back to my profile, I figured since I am tracking again, I might as well keep you guys informed.

Afm- the retreat was actually nice. I teach at a Christian school, and so the retreat is mostly Bible studies, but it was really comforting to me. A couple of my close friend/coworkers and I talked a lot about TTC and they are all really sweet and reassuring etc, and they will be praying for me and that feels good too. There is a girl at work who just got PG, and so we talked for a while too, and they had been trying for 7 months before it happened, so that brings me comfort as well, that even young healthy people can just take some time. I would love to have a PG buddy at work, especially since we actually graduated the same year from the same school. So... I am hoping it happens soon so we can really have PG time together (she is due in April). We'll see.

Since I have been gone, I am sure we will have some times together before it, but officially (in my mind) the GOFO fest will start Monday. That will be 3 days before my predicted early O day, and I hope to keep it up for a week at least or until I see 3 high temps and know that its done.

Looking forward to seeing some early Sept. BFPs!

Alyssa: It makes sense that they would cover themselves like that.

Sure quiet around here

****tumbleweeds rolling by****

:)

JENNI! It's friday. :)

ERIN - have a great and safe move this weekend (this weekend, yah?) !

MARY - still feeling ill? I hope those temps aren't tripping you out over there. ???

AFM - glad it's friday, but i have a lot of work to do, sigh. We don't have big plans for the 3 day weekend here... going to our friends' baby's (1year) birthday party tomorrow. Other than that I actually need to do a lot around the house that I haven't been wanting to do in the heat. Seems like it might cool down a bit this weekend.

Have a great weekend (and labor day weekend for us in the U.S.) everyone!

Lisa: I'm glad your retreat went so well, and that you were able to get positive support from some of your friends and co-workers. GL with starting your GOFO fest on Monday!

Jen: Yay! Another person not worried about the 13th! I had people ask me if I thought it was unlucky that we were getting married on the 13th, but it never really occurred to us! All your talk about golf makes me miss it - I haven't done much over the past couple of years. I hope to get back into it more next year!

Andi: I was just thinking how quiet it is around here. Maybe everyone has taken off early for the long weekend (we have Labour Day this weekend too!). We don't have many plans, although I'm seeing Cirque du Soleil tonight with a friend of mine!

AFM: No news really. DH had his interview and, although he thinks he did well, he didn't really get a feel for what his impression was like. They told him they'd let him know by the end of next week, so I'll keep you posted! Nothing on the TTC front - just waiting :P

Thanks! Yep, we're heading out on Sunday. It's been an insane week around here. Even though we had movers, I spent all night every night just cleaning and decluttering and preparing for them. They came yesterday, so now we're sleeping on an air mattress and I'm working on my laptop from the floor today. Comfy. Wedding tomorrow and drive out Sunday bright and early!

So my chart is the lamest chart ever, in my opinion. I'm not holding out much if any hope because my temps are so erratic and keep tanking and spiking. If my temps happen to recover into awesome territory, I may test Sunday before we leave, but I'm not too optimistic about that. Positives about no BFP this month: Drinking in the Bahamas, being able to scuba dive/horseback ride/be a little adventurous. :)

I'll probably be able to stop in again before we leave, but if not, I'll be back Wednesday and will hopefully be updating the front page with a BFP or two. :)
