Where ya at?
Whatcha doing?
Whatcha thinking?
Other random thoughts

I'm happier today then I have been in a week - thank goodness...
The long of it...
Matt got sick last week, first chest stuff from breathing in really bad things at his lab (so I missed out on a scheduled TCM appointment in Jacksonville which I had really been looking forward to), then the next day, he had a 102+ temp (sperm killing anyone - I kept telling him that he was killing our babies!) and had tonsillitis, he was sick during O day and he wasnt feeling like DTD at all...the one time we set aside to DTD (night of my + OPK), Kaiden woke up at 10pm (NEVER happens) and wouldnt go back down (we waited till midnight trying to comfort him)...we finally pulled out this cot on the other end of the house (where his mom normally sleeps - ewww!!) and just got it over with (poor Kaiden had to take one for the team for 30 minutes), not the most romantic ever, but it is what it is... we only DTD once during the right time, the next day my temp spiked and I thought I had Oed, but turns out that was only a funky temperature, and I Oed the day after that...

I'm almost 3DPO, but my temps are a bit off since Kaiden has been waking at 4:30-5:30am every day...so we cant really go by that...oh, and I have an insanely stuffy nose which is seriously driving me crazy, think it is oak tree allergies!

FWIW, dont think I'll be pregnant this cycle...
I was way stressed...
Matt was way sick and taking medication when we DTD even...
We didnt schedule it well at all...
Kaiden broke my lucky bottle of B-vitamin complex, so I cant take those pills...
I ran out of my herb pills from the acupuncture lady...
blah blah blah...

Good things...
CM was a bit more this cycle (though I'm still having EWCM now which is odd)...and I timed the Robitussin well...
I think my temps are a bit higher then they normally are and I got a nicer spike then I normally do (that 1DPO temp was taken at 4:30am, so if I'd taken it at 6:30am, it probably would have been even higher - same for 2DPO)...
I think I might have Oed from both sides based on O pains, which is kinda cool...

Hoping the good mood stays for a while, the bad mood of the last week was not good!

I'm on CD19. No O yet. I'm totally relaxed about it. My stupid body has been ready to O for a week and just can't get around to it. That means I know I'll have a short LP because my egg is shriveling up DH has been out of town since Monday morning though, so it's fine I haven't Od.

I had my second acupuncture appointment yesterday. It went really well. I counted and she used 24 needles I love all the pokes. I didn't pick up any more herbs from her because I kept all my old stuff and what I need after I O hasnt' expired yet. So, I saved myself about $30. Of course I'll have to buy something next cycle since I'll be out by then, but that's okay. I won't waste money on a cycle that isn't going to make a baby.

I started keeping track of what I'm eating. This will help me avoid the things I shouldn't eat. My AL is awesome though and is realistic about my diet. She wants me to eat things on my list, but not to limit myself to that, which is fine with me. By limiting to just that, I'm liable to cause deficiencies in other areas.

I knew I had differences this time than last time. Last time I had issues with Kidney Yang, this time it's Kidney Yin. It's funny that I don't have most of the symptoms listed for Yin, but my Yin pulse is really low. She said that there is often an imbalance between the two. If Yang goes up too much, it basically feeds on the Yin and depletes that.

Even though I know I won't get prego this cycle, I'm still feeling good. I'm in a great place mentally. I would love to get prego in early Sept, which isn't far away. I do get a little sad when I talk to my sister about her pregnancy though since she's due 8 days after I would have been due. It would have been so fun to be so close in our pregnancies.

I am on cycle day 9 DH just got home today!!!! Wahoo although he is onl home until Sunday and then he is gone until Wednesday, but I don't think I will be ovulating until around the 22-23 so he will be home then

I have acupuncture tomorrow and she was talking about herbs last time so hopefully she will give me something!! On a side note my specialist appointment is in less than two weeks I can't believe it is coming so fast and we have lots going on before then, a wedding next weekend (my bff is getting married) and then we have our stampede the week after that, which my family is coming to stay with us I can't wait!!!!

Tonya, what do your o pains feel like?? I am wondering if what I feel are o pains, but I have no ides what they feel like, and I am soooo glad that you are in a better place this week

Val, I didn't ovulate until CD 24 with my DD, so it could still happen

Casey, are you seriously 15 weeks already??? Where the heck does time go??

Megan-
I LOVE having a lot to do so that my mind doesnt obsess as much...its so much better that way, and hooray for having a ton of great times coming up (and your DH around also)...KUP on what your acupuncture lady says...

Val-
When is DH back, maybe your eggie is waiting for him to return?
I had the same thing happen this cycle, I had decent CM early and thought for sure that I was going to O super early, but then it just dragged on and on...

As for me, I'm twiddling my thumbs in no-mans land of waiting to see what happens...
I find myself vacillating between being extremely hopeful and insanely negative...
When I was trying for Kaiden, I was just negative cause I couldnt even imagine myself pregnant...
Now I know that I CAN get pregnant...and I remember (at least from the m/c) what things I felt...so I obsess even more then I did before, but I wonder if getting pregnant was just a fluke...yea, definitely NEED to get something to occupy my time...

Good thing is that right after O next cycle, I'm meeting up with Casey (hooray!) then going to visit Matt's grandma (Nikki - would love to meet up in PHilly if we can?!?), so by the time I get back, it will be testing time, and hopefully I wont have obsessed as much as usual...hopefully!

DH is home. No O yet though. Ugh! I don't even care if I get prego right now, I just hate that my body gets ready to O and then just sits around and waits. My cervix has been camping out in the same position for a week now. I wish my hormones would just kick in and my ovaries could get rid of that egg

Tonya, I'm glad you have some fun things planned. Maybe those will help you relax a little. Take some time to do some stuff for yourself.

LOL...me relaxed while TTC is like pigs flying...not the easiest thing...and turns out our plans changed...no Philly, cause they are coming here two weeks later - BUT, I still get to visit Casey which is so awesome

Well, I'm still gonna go with the eggie is a good one, it was just waiting for your hubby to be home - though I can TOTALLY relate to waiting to O forever - I had neverending O signs this cycle...and the first cycle post-Kaiden, I had 2 weeks of it...

I'm getting a few light cramps and headache, so I'm reading WAY too much into it right now and annoyed at myself...I hadnt had anything to drink all day explains the headache, and the light cramps was most likely gas...stupid IPS!

Also, wanted to add, I made your pizza tonight...one sweet potato (we boiled it cause we were making sweet potato fries in the oven and didnt have room at the time)...then added an egg, little salt, little baking soda, oat flour (found it in a bin at the local health food grocery store - organic and all and only $2/pound) and corn meal (fine ground - found in the same bins for $2/pound also)...I also added walnut meal to mine cause I like walnuts...anyway, I made them on the stove like pancakes...then I sauteed garlic/spinach together, put down some spaghetti sauce, and soft/hard goat cheese...then baked it at 350 for 15 minutes - it was SO awesome, even Kaiden loved it - thanks for the idea, I would never have even thought of it, and Matt cant stop raving about it

Pic when it was in the oven (the 2 closest ones are the ones with walnuts in them, the other 4 are for Matt and Kaiden):

just poppin' in to add my stuff, even though we aren't TTC

I'm 3DPO and have been Oing right around CD15-17, which is nice! My LP is still hovering 9-10 days, which is why I'm using OPKs to find out what's going on. I started fertilitea this week to see if that helps any. It's yummy! I'll be interested to see if it helps with hormonal balance as it states.

I'm going to continue tracking and using OPKS until this time next year when we actually plan to TTC #2. This helps satisfy my TTC need that I have now (it's not the right time for us).

Good luck ladies who are actively TTC!!!!!

I'm glad you enjoyed the pizza. I think they are amazing too! I honestly like stuff like that more than regular pizza.

Tonya - Too bad about no Philly visit this summer I've gotten used to seeing you the last couple of times you were in town. No worries though... we'll definitely hook up next trip!

I never feel "right" blabbing my cycle stuff here, cuz... well, I'm not a grad. But I do check in just about every day and wanted to wish you all the best of luck. Hopefully these are good cycles for everyone!

& Baby to all...

Good luck to all of you!! I'm not quite there yet but have lots of baby fever so if it sticks around who knows, it could be fairly soon for me.

Well.... if you insist!!

I'm 8 DPO right now. If FF had it's way, I'd only be 6. It initially chose CD 16 for O day and I agreed. Then a few days later, it decided it liked CD 18 better. Well, I didn't, because my temp on CD 17 was the highest temp I'd had since AF was here and it met FF's thermal shift rule of "usually 0.4 degree increase, sometimes as slight as 0.2" Mine was 0.4 on the nose and they kept going up for the next 4 days. So, I told FF it was being a freak, overrode my chart and went on about my business.

My temps have been really excellent, if I'm to be honest. I was kinda disappointed because a part of me was hoping for some dramatic drop in temp today that could be viewed as possible sign of implantation. But after the craptacular temps I had last cycle, I'm thankful for what I've got. My next TCM appt. is tomorrow at 10.

As far as symptoms go... not much. Now if you want me to get all super crazy TWW symptom analyzer monster on you, I can oblige! I've woken to pee the last 3 nights in a row. Luckily all of them allowed me to get full sleep before temp time Now, the first 2 nights, I drank a glass of my herbs before bed, so I'm thinking that's to blame.

Last night, no herbs before bed and I woke up about 1 1/2 hrs after falling asleep with a bursting bladder. When I went back to bed, I kept feeling that "UTI" sensation and was all like "NOOOOOOO!!!!!" Today, the sensation is gone, but I keep feeling like I have to pee. Like, I just went 15 mins ago, and I feel like I've gotta go again.

I noticed some sporadic cramps starting last night, but they're not long or consistent enough for me to really identify what "kind" of cramps they feel like. And now, the side of my right boob feels like it's getting sore.

No idea when I might test... I hate BFN's so bad!

Your chart is AMAZING Nikki!! So excited for you...

As for me, I'm apparently having a 7 day LP...cause today my temp dropped, and AF is definitely starting...I dont have the heart to put "light" on the flow instead of spotting, but it is definitely AF...

Last night, I had an evap on an IC, never had that before, guess I was just due for one...so, I get to be extra sad about a crap LP and my hopes had been up, so yea, that sucks

Cd 19 for me - i got two positive (i'm pretty sure) OPK's on the 16th then they got lighter after that, there was a very light line yesterday. This makes me right on track for what i thought... i've been insanely regular since having M, its really weird. Anyway, like i said i'm just gearing up for next month!

CD24 No O despite my cervix being ready to O for a week now.

Tonya, I'm sorry I hope you have a nice strong early O this cycle.

Sorry Val

I'm taking a step back to breathe for the next two weeks (until I start obsessing again - though Nikki, I will be checking in on you, cause I would give up 10 cycles to have you get a BFP SOON )...my the obsessing was going way way overboard, I gotta enjoy Kaiden time cause it is awesome also...

However, I got an appointment with the RE (new guy, I'm honestly not a fan, he did my first U/S with the miscarriage and was very short with me and said that since I saw the H/B my chance of M/C was less than 5% - which is NOT true!)...anyway, I hate when people think I'm stupid, and I have a feeling he is like that...but, if I can get some monitoring, that would be good...I'm not at a point where I want drugs, but I think with a 6,10, then 7 day LP all in a row, that at least justifies a bit of monitoring to find out is I have crap eggs that are popping out and/or a really bad lining...or SOMETHING!

if something is wrong, I'll have to get started on fixing it...
But, if they dont find anything wrong, it will at least make being patient a bit easier...
