I haven't been tracking anything at all this month...just going off what womans log and ff say.
Well I have noticed ALOT of cm this week
So I decided to check for the heck of it this morning and DEFINITELY had ewcm
My apps say my fertile days are today-saturday (they are both guessing O on saturday)
So right on track
As far as timing bd...we aren't just enjoying being married and the rest comes naturally. However with that being said I do log it in my app..hahaha which it has turned out to be every other day since I stopped af ..If this trend continues we will bd twice more between now and possible O..I will probably make sure we bd on Saturday as well..just in case

So Saturday the 5th will be 2 weeks after O..also the day we get back from cruise....
I think I am NOT going to bring tests with me..so I can just relax and focus on enjoying our time instead of obsessing over tests.
So if AF doesnt show on the 5th then I will buy a test the day we get back and test Sunday morning the 6th

OT
Any suggestions on what to bring with me on the cruise...I am nowhere near where I wanted to be size wise...so being in a bathing suit is going to be extremely depressing....I even have SPANX bathing suits! hahaha Im thinking I need to go buy a coverup ASAP!
Besides that..the obvious.
camera, book, towel, sunglasses, bug spray, umbrella, ....anything I'm missing???
9 more days!

I would suggest bringing a digital alarm clock... especially if you are in an inside room! First, we always get an inside room and it is DARK with the lights off. You can't tell what time it is. If I wake up and don't know then I will stay awake wondering but if I can check that little alarm and it is early I will go right back to sleep. Also I can never figure out the on board alarms so for ports I need it to wake up on time.

I like to bring a little bit of booze for in my room. Some ships will let you bring your own and some will let you order it from them and have it waiting in the room. This saves money and I like to have drinks before dinner or while just hanging in the room without having to get dressed and walk to a random bar.

Sunscreen is probably obvious but deserves a mention regardless.

We always wear our bathing suits onto the ship or bring them in our carry-on. Most people don't and so the pools are always nice and empty right at the beginning and it is a great way to start the cruise! If we leave during winter, we just switch to the hot tub.

I'm a cruise junkie and could totally bombard you with advice so just let me know if you have any other questions instead. lol

So exciting your cruise is so soon now!!!!

A lot of cruises let you bring on a bottle of wine per person. So we usually at least bring a bottle each since booze on the cruise can be so pricey. We have gotten away with taking more on before too but I have heard they are stricter about that.

We always bring water bottles as well. They are nice to carry off the ship with you for excursions or just to have around.

Some of the ships have pretty nice dinners so I love to dress up for those and go out afterwards. It depends on your ship but that was something I didn't realize before we went so I did not take nice enough clothes.

As far as towels they have a lot on the ship so I never took one with me.

There is so much to do on a cruise it really is a little overwhelming. I find it best to look over the weeks itinerary the first day and pick the things you really want to go to (comedy shows, wine tastings, etc) and then fill in the free time with all the relaxation and pool time. I am with Shandy, I love cruises so I could probably over bombard you with advice as well So I will wait and see if you have any other questions too!

Yes, definitely bring water bottles. They charge so much money for a bottle of water. I would also bring some aloe (in case you burn) and Tylenol or Advil (whatever pain reliever you prefer) because they charge a lot of items like this in their gift shop.

I also agree about bringing some dressy clothes because they usually have a picture night where you can where your nice clothes and get a fancy picture taken.

Also, don't worry at all about your body. I wasn't where I wanted to be either when we went on a cruise for our honeymoon but I just threw a cover up on and took it off when I got to the lounge chair. And believe me, you will see people who look much worse than you wearing much less than you lol. Just enjoy yourself and relax, who cares what anyone thinks (and they're probably not even thinking anything bad anyhow) rock your bathing suit like you're the hottest thing on the ship and get your tan on.

You will have a blast.

One last thing, don't forget to call your cell phone carrier and have them turn off you're roaming so you're not charged an arm and a leg.

Oh man I am sooo jealous! Have a blast!

I've never done a cruise (well once when I was four, but I lost my blankie on the ship and I was apparently sad until I found him) but the other ladies' tips are right on.

I'd say if you have those plastic screw-on cups with the plastic straws, those might be good to have with you for drinks from the bar. You can fit more and you always know which cup is yours (plus they stay colder longer)

Do you have port-of-calls that you'll be stopping at? A secure bag, maybe a cinch sak or something, to take with you for those trips. Nothing that someone can easily get their hand in to -- be wary of pick pocketers and the like.

Have sooooo much fun!!!

I'm jealous over all the cruise posts! My DH has a skin condition and can react to water... so even something as simple as a cruise is out *cries*.

Good luck with the BDing!

Do you mean reacts to SALT water... I know some people's skin is irritated by sun and salt water. But if that is what you mean, don't be deterred as there's sooo much more to do on a cruise than swim and lay in the sun....... take it from me who never does that.............. now I'm from an area where I get quite enough of that so it's nothing to me..... but the shows, the ports, the shops, and sitting in the shade watching the endless ocean is ever so nice! .....
ok ok I know if you're from a city or mountain area you really wanna swim and sun bathe
