Boob pain started Sunday. Still taking the vitex, but I took it late today (need a new routine).

Waiting to see what AF is going to do. I expected her today.. but she's not officially late until Wednesday since I don't know when I O'd.

I'm running low on cheapies.... and this line makes me want to pee on anything and everything. I don't know if it was the wet dye line or not... but it's not the first one I've seen in the last 48 hours.

If I O'd when I think I did, today was 13dpo. AF usually shows on 13dpo... nothing so far. My cervix was nice and high earlier, no spotting.. no signs of her except some pains that feel like cramps.. but don't feel like cramps at the same time. Feels like I've strained my uterus or something.

I'm not getting my hopes up too high... if anything I'm excited by the slightly longer than usual cycle with no spotting. Even if AF shows.. it tells me the vitex works and makes me excited for next cycle.

Well it's CD 5... (well 6 now) and AF's gone.. just a little bit of lingering spotting. My last several af's were 7 days heavy flow then moving to spotting.

I have not taken an opk, I'm going to start them on cd 7.. since there's a chance I could O very early with the vitex. Normally I wouldn't start them until cd 9 or 10. I don't have any CM yet.. so I feel like I still have sometime.

We do have Reme until New Years Eve (we get him 3pm Xmas day), so DTD will be tricky. I plan on strategic Kindle time allowing us to sneak away so we can get in lots of BDing. He's getting minecraft for his Kindle.. I'm just hoping his mom can get it put on there before he gets here so it can hold his attention. LOL.

The best part? I have a blood draw on cd 29 for my thyroid. I will totally call my OB's office if I get a decent BFP and insist on a beta. I won't be able to have it repeated... but I'd at least like to say "HA! I told you I get pregnant!" if it doesn't stick. I know we'll pay extra for the beta and what not.. but I do not freaking care.

Hopefully that will keep him nice and distracted for a while

That would be so great if you could get a beta done too!! I am keeping my Fx for you as always

Nothing much to report. Started Opking... still def negative. LOL. I am taking Vitex, plus my cocktail of other supplements and mucinex. DH is taking his cocktail of meds plus mucinex. The theory there is if the seminal fluid is too thick it could impede the sperm from getting out in a timely manner, mucinex will thin it out a little. And with Dh.. it does thin it quite a bit (learned that when he was sick).

Reme had me build legos in the middle of my last update.... so I left it a bit unfinished. lol.

cd 7



cd 8



cd 9



cd 9 test 2 (TECHNICALLY CD 10 as I didn't take it until 1am)




obviously getting somewhere... and getting there rather quickly. Ovaries have felt nice and swollen. But sadly I still have 0 sex drive. We're doing it anyway.. but I'd really hoped the vitex would give me some oomph.




I purposely didn't write anything Friday. This is why:



I took the screen capture after midnight eastern time.. hence the 1 day.

Yup, it's official. It has been 2 years since we stopped preventing. March will be 2 years of opk's, pre-seed and supplements. I'm a whole mix of emotions.. but thankfully Reme has been a good enough distraction I forgot entirely what Friday was until it was almost over.

But something unique happened Saturday.

I came to a realization the other day that one day I might be pregnant.. growing a human... and nearly threw up. I don't think it's every really set in before. I've always said I'll have a child... but the pregnancy part? yeah... maybe this realization is what it'll take? LOL

I've always thought of children, or just being pregnant.... but never really about the pregnancy. I can tell you which tests I do and do not want... but to stop and think about feeling movement? I've never really done that because it's seemed unattainable. But then *poof*... that is going to happen one day. I'll be sitting here having someone unhappily kicking me in the bladder because I'm hunched forward taking up precious space. I'll get pokes when I poke first... it's just... an unreal idea that settled in. The feeling of throwing up was so bad I heaved a little.. and Reme asked me if I needed a bucket. LOL



And really.. this day needs to come soon. I'm so tired of taking handfulls of pills every night.


In other news Reme has really given us a run for our money the last two days.. to the point we actually looked at each other today and said "and we want to add another?" Oi... for all you readers out there... 8 year olds are HARD and stubborn as hell. I swear I went twice as grey as I was Christmas Day today. ugh.

Ashley you are one of the strongest people I know. I am glad Reme was able to distract you for at least some of the day. I am always so hopeful for you

Those OPKs are getting dark fast I am keeping everything possible crossed for you!!!!!

they weren't any darker yesterday or this morning. And my ovaries don't hurt much anymore.

Couple it with a boat load of stress that was heaped on today.. who knows what's happening in there. I'll be taking another opk shortly though... I forgot to save the pee earlier.
