Alot of catching up to do!!!! Welcome to all the new ladies ttc and to all those who have BFPs and the ones who are waiting for BFPs....This is definitely a positive month!!!! **Babydust to all**

 

Suebecca - October 4

When is everyone testing next? I know Clynn is testing Friday or soon therafter... I'm hoping for more bfp's!!! :)

 

Lucy - October 4

I put this on Part 4 we must of been typing at the same time. SueBecca - Thanks and Congrats to you too. I haven't called the Dr yet. Do i just call my regular dr or do i call an ob-gyn or whatever they are called. In England you just go to the regular Dr and then nearer the time you alternate between the Dr and the midwife.....but like i said before i have no idea what to do!!!!

 

Justine - October 4

Definitely we are a bunch of chatters! Lucy - I've no idea so i'll be interested to see what you find out although I am scheduled to see a regular doctor this month as it's taking me so long ttc and then perhaps I'll get referred to a ob/gyn. Suebecca - I'm on cd10 and in high/peak fertility time (I have fairly short cycles) so not even in the tww yet!

 

Jessica - October 4

This is MUCH better...Suebecca - I wont be testing for a LOOONG time...Today makes CD18 for me...I still have 17 more days before I'll be able to test...I cant wait to see all the BFP's before me, then hopefully I can join in....Lucy - I would call your primary doctor and see if they recommend anybody 1st and if they dont then I would research and make an appt with an ob/gyn. Maybe neighbors who have had children or who are pg might recommend someone that you would feel comfortable with. Suebecca - it's always great to have a dr/midwife who you feel comfortable with. I loved the dr's that I had and that means alot because you have to trust them and their decisions.

good morning. I don't have time to read all of the posts from this morning, as I am only on break from lecture.. blahhhhhh. Dh and I got into a fight about bding ha ha and didn't end up bding at all :-( I have a feeling this wont be my month. I thought I had o'd but then got more ewcm. So far no signs today of it, but I got the side cramping last friday. My temp was really low then really high, I was so convinced. dang. I am not sure what to think. Well ladies have a great day! I will check back in later!!!!

 

April H. - October 4

Good Morning Ladies! Well, still no AF. Woke up with more cramping today. It totally feels like she is coming but no signs as of yet. I am definately expecting her as I don't want to be disappointed. It was only our first try and I can't expect it to happen on the first one. We bd'd about 3 times during my O week. Bb's are about the same as yesterday. Just a little soar to the touch but not much else. I slept like a log last night and went to bed early because I was tired. Hope all is well with everyone. Two more days of waiting and then I see the OBGYN.

 

Jessica - October 4

Aww, Ashley - sorry to hear about the fight with dh. Hope the rest of your day is better....This can still be your month...You might've just O'd on Friday and you guys bd'd just in time. We have to keep positive so that the end result is positive for us...

 

Jessica - October 4

April H - No af seems like a good sign. When was she due again? Sorry for making u repeat yourself!! Have u tested and gotten a BFN? Maybe you should wait a few days and then test again, you could be our 3rd BFP...Goodluck to you and keep positive.

 

Lucy - October 4

There is so many questions that keep popping into my mind.....so sorry if i ask any questions that you have already answered. In England we usually wait until 3 months till we tell people, when do US announce the news also any good books that i should get?

 

Lucy - October 4

April - I kept thinking af was coming i was running backwards and forwards to the loo......i think those days are the worst. Good Luck

 

Suebecca - October 4

Lucy, A lot of people in the US wait, but tell their closest friends/immediate family early. My mom, sister, 3 best friends all know. I told my boss today too and to keep it hush/hush. She didn't sem too thrilled, but oh well. I had to tell her, so I could take off for my doc's appts., since my doc is only open until 4:30 on weekdays. April, let us know if you test or not! We're all dying to know!!! I've been spotting again today.. brown, but the midwife who did my pap yesterday said it would be normal to experience some brown spotting today and tomorrow. UGH! I seriously need to invest in some panty liners... I know, TMI. :)

 

Justine - October 4

Jessica - it just shows you how different our cycles all are. You and I are both at/approaching peak fertile time yet I'm on cd10 and you're on cd18! Ashley - sorry about you and dh fighting and then not bding but hopefully you've done enough good work already...lol! Me and dh were the opposite to how we normally are as last night I wanted to sleep as I was so tired but he was having none of it and reminded me about how mad I would be in the morning if we didn't bd! April - hope af stays away for you, can you imagine getting pg on your first month ttc - that would be great! Lucy - i think it's 3 months here too but just do it when it feels right for you. I know that when I get pg I won't be able to stay quiet for too long.

 

Lucy - October 4

SueBecca - Bosses are never happy with the news as they only ever think of how it will affect them!!!!

 

Jessica - October 4

Lucy - I'd wait 3mths also before I'd tell anyone that I was pg. My last pg I didnt wait and I told everybody once I found out and it ended in m/c. I was so heartbroken and then when I saw someone I told I felt horrible when I had to tell them that I was no longer pg. If I get pg now I'd keep it between us here and dh. I'd tell everyone else after my 3rd month...Suebecca - I agree with Lucy, employers always think of it as a loss or how it's going to affect them. Alot of women dont return after maternity leave and I guess thats why they see it as a neg or they're not too happy because it just means more work for them. but you stay stress-free and dont worry about that...DH & I bd'd this morning and I went to the bathroom today and I have some spotting, I dont understand. Justine - isnt it weird how different our cycles really are? I mean 10 & 18 yet we're O'ing at the same time.

 

Suebecca - October 4

Lucy, this is true, but I'm trying to be honest w/ them. I don't want them to get suspecious when I keep asking off for all these doc appts. I'd rather just get it out of the way. :) Jessica, I loved the midwife I saw yesterday, but it sucks that she can't deliver my baby, if I wanted her to, since she doesn't have delivering privlidges at the hospital I'll be at. I haven't met the other docs yet... so I'm hoping those experiences will be just as positive! :)

 

Dawn (DS) - October 4

Gosh you ladies really are chatter boxes he he he.
