ROBYN, I'm glad to hear that (for the most part) you're doing okay, and baby too. As tough as it is, stay in that bed, woman! I don't see how you're doing it with all the bells and whistles going off at your house, though. lol! Just out of curiosity, though, how do you manage 100% bedrest AND having to pee in a jar? MARIBEL, I am sorry that your doctor is wanting to wait a year. A year is the point that you are considered medically infertile, although most doctors kind of throw that out the window and whenever you're ready to test they'll do it. I guess he just wants to play it strictly by the books and that really sucks! Maybe get a second opinion if you can? Definitely do the temping. I think it saved my sanity (or caused the disappearance of?) It really makes you feel like you are doing SOMETHING to help TTCing along. And lucky for you, we have plenty of expert charters here! ZEN, I know we aren't supposed to get all riled up but... thats a really good sign!!! I tried Answer too and they say it works after AF is due best, but I took it the day AF was due (without FMU, by the way) and got a dark line so I think it will work just fine for you now. Hint hint... lol! GOOD LUCK!

My freaking head is about to EXPLODE!!! I want an advil so bad I can not stand it. I took Tylenol and Sudafed and so far no relief. Ok, so, Jen, when are you going to test again? How many dpo are you? Lori, so sorry you are having bus issues. Darn kids! Will Corbin grow out of it? I am not sure how adhd works...Well, I need to get some work done so I can lay down with this d__n head!

KATHY - i am just a stubborn person i am lying down on the 2nd level on the couch i just cant sit in bed. I am allowed to take a shower and stuff i am going to do my best to follow the docs orders though its gonna be hard i am still human. MARIBEL - i agree with Kathy a year is a long time and i really think you should find a new doc and tell this one a little lie that it has been a year. JEN - maybe Kathy is right also another test who knows look how long Kristins bfp took. FRANCES - man i am sorry about those headaches but unfortunately your kinda screwed as to what you can take as you know. Have you tried caffeine to take the edge off, or a cold ice pack?? Try tylenol every 4 hours not just one time. If its perisisting give the doc a call maybe he can advise something stronger.

Robyn, I am on the phone with the Dr now to see what else I can take. I told the receptionist that I have tried Tylenol and Sudafed and they are not working!! I have had 1-12 oz Diet Dr Pepper maybe I need another one. It feels like a borderline migraine cause my stomach is feeling icky too. Sometimes when it was my time of the month I would get a migraine but it was nothing that Advil cold and sinus and a cold cloth would not fix. I hate Tylenol. I took 2 a little while ago with 1 sudafed. So I had to leave a message for the nurse to call me back...I hope she calls soon!

FRANCES- peppermint tea is supposed to help with headahces, especialy migraines. it is decaf so you can drink it.

 

ZenGirl - January 4

FRANCES- also ask your DR about Hyland's Homeopahic Migraine headache relief tablets. they are aspirin free, caffiene free and contain no sedatives.....Hyland's makes stuff for teething babies too!

 

FrancesM - January 4

Thanks Jen, I will have to get some. I think I am going to try and chug some water to see if that will help.

 

ZenGirl - January 4

Uh- oh FRANCES! sounds like they are going to give you the once over! let us know what they say!!

 

ROBYN - January 4

Frances - better to safe than sorry. have you been getting spots in front of your eyes, blurred vision, we know about the headaches already those are all other signs of hbp also sometimes nausea is a__sociated well obviously update as soon as you can. I hope its not hbp.

Hey girls.. just thought id stop in. ***Zen***: That "gushing" feeling that you are feeling with the water cm is actually a HUGE pregnancy symptom. Thats one that I got with all of my babies.. it feels like AF instead its this incredible amount of cm. Keep on testing.. thats the best thing I can say. ***Cyndi***: Hopefully the spermies stayed around for a bit from sundays romp.. and this month might be your month. ****Robyn****: I read you post yesterday and I was soo worried.. i did send you an email, not sure if you got it. All you can do is try your best to stay on bedrest.. thats whats going to keep your bp down.. but sometimes even on complete bedrest your bp will do what it wants to do. Gotta love your doc for keeping a close eye on you.***Julie***: Im glad you are having a good time picking out names.. it seems an impossible task in my house.. Joe says that Joseph is a really great name.. btw!! hehe ***Stef***: Good luck at your appointment.. im sure youll have great news. ***Duckie***: Your doctors never cease to amaze me.. dont feel bad for "not getting it" its their job to make it in terms that you DO get it. Just keep asking questions.. and when they use terms you dont understand.. STOP THEM right there.. and make them explain what their robot talk means! ***LOri***: Sheesh.. Corbin gave you a good run for your money today.. I would have been furious.. Im glad you have the patience of a saint.. because id probably lose my head. I hope he "gets it" soon.. so he can go back to going on the bus with his friends.. poor kid. ***FRANCES***: Im here.. just got lots of things on my plate. So sorry that youre having a migraine.. what always worked for me was darkness.. maybe put a cloth over your eyes and try to take a nap??? It sounds horrible. ***Kathy***: God any more belly pics you wanna share?? ***Allie***: Sounds fantastic about the move.. I hope you get your BFP.. so we can all have a little dance in your honor!!! ****** AS for me.. OH goodness.. ever since I told you about the entire situation with my house.. Ive been trying to figure out how to fix the furnace.. so that we can stay.. and all that. We have explored every single avenue we can think of and .. NOTHING. So the last couple of weeks it hasnt been so bad.. the house has stayed nice and warm, and its just been mild weather. The furnace has NOT shut off for an entire month.. which is pretty bad. So yesterday when we opened our mailbox to find our electric bill... it put the nail in the coffin. The bill was 1053.50!!!!!!!!!! I just cant pay that on top of all the other necessities including mortgage.. it means that we will NEVER have any extra money for a long long long time. To me its just not worth it. NOt only that.. weve had a cold snap.. yesterday my house was 60 (15 c) degrees all day.. and then last night.. it went to 50 (10c) degrees INSIDE my house. I just cant do it. So i had to put my kids first.. and decide to give up my beautiful house that we have put so much work and money into. We lose everything weve done to it.. and we just get to walk away. The lawyer is clickin his heals all the way to the bank.. but there just isnt anything we can do. So next Saturday we will move. I have to pack it all up and go.. with my tail between my legs. Its all good.. ill have two warm little girls, that will be much happier having a little extra cash to be spent on them. They are worth everything to me.. and if I have to give up what I worked hard for, for them.. so be it! After all they are what makes my world go round!! haha. Just thought id give an update.. ill try to stay more up to date!! ~Kristin~

Hi Girls, Hope everyone is having a great day ! I however am a little disappointed. I tested with FMU again, and got the dreaded BFN. I however think dh is having a harder time with the bfn's than I am (if thats possible). Not a day goes by without him talking about the twin boys we lost in October. He was devistated when it happened, as well as I. I think a BFP is just what we need to help us move forward. FRANCES: sorry about your headache, I hope it just that, a headache, and not anything more serious. Zen: I am excited for you, I had the feeling af was on her way with my last pregnancy, but it wasn't long after that when I got a bfp. I will keep my fingers crossed for you, as well as include you (and everyone else) in my prayers tonight. Does anyone have any suggestions on what brand of hpt is better for testing a couple of days early? I have been using First Response Early Result. Well, it's time to pick up Olivia up from school. I will check in later or tomorrow with my latest test results.*~*~*~baby dust*~*~*~

LESLIE- it is a blessing and curse to have hubby who is so caring. on one hand it is nice to know that you 2 are on the same page and want to have a baby (or babies, in your case) so badly. but then when something goes wrong it is such a let down for both of you. losing a baby or babies is not an easy thing to put away in your mind. my hubby brings it up more than i thought he ever would. but it sounds like you 2 are a good team and you can make it to the bfp together... and youwill :)....as far as test go, in october i got a faint positve on the equate brand test (walmart) and went in for a blood test that afternoon and my hcg was 14 so i know that the test picked up at least 14 but i don't know if that is consistant amoung all the equate tests or if i just got a lucky box...???.... i have never had success with the FRER, but i keep trying on those. i think i might try to confirm brand and the answer brand...why not go broke trying them all for a good cause, right!!??!...KRISTIN- once you get settled into your new place you will feel glad about the decisions that you had to make. where are you moving to, by the way???

 

Leslie Lynn - January 4

Zen: Thanks for the hpt tip. How early were you testing with the equate when you got the faint bfp? I am 4 days early today. I think hubby and I will go hpt shopping tonight.

 

FrancesM - January 4

I am back. 140/78. There are no Dr's in on Friday in that office. The nurse said she would call the Dr to see what they suggest. She said it was not high enough for meds but that most likely they will call in a pain pill for the pain and then I will go back in on Monday for another check. I told them that I had been taking Sudafed and Tylenol. She aid the Sudafed will make it go up and not to take any over the weekend so they could get a true reading on Monday. She said they would call in Hydrocodone or Darvocet. I love me some Darvocet and have some here. John likes Hydro. Huh! We sound like a bunch of druggies huh?? LOL Anyway, I am to call the pharm in an hour to see if there is anything there for me...Kristin, so glad you checked in and so sorry that you have to move. I agree that you guys can not walk around like popsicles all the time. I hate that your bill was so high too what a pain. I hope the new house is warmer and you guys can get settled in fast!! Leslie, sorry for the bfn. When are you supposed to start? Do you know how many days past o you are?? You might be testing early...Robyn, no I have not been having spots or anything else, just the headache. It comes from the right side of my neck and up around above my ear to the front. Vision and everything else is ok...
