Ashley - October 10

Hey every body over here! :-) I really haven't posted much today, and not sure why. Cylnn speaking of the stay at home mom role, DH said to me tonight, can you hurry up and get through school so I can start playing daddy role and you can start playing mommy role. So I asked him what exactly does playing daddy role entail? He said going to work, making money, paying bills. So I said well then what does mommy role do? He said stay at home, bond with the kids, etc. lol I said so a nursing career doesn't count as making money, and paying bills? He said he didn't want to be MR. MOM lol Said he could never take the place of motherly love and comfort for a child. Said I would do a much better job.

Hi again!!! New thread yay!!! Just wanted to chime in here. I'm off to bed. V V V tired!

 

C Lynn - October 11

Yay!!! I get to post at the beginning of a thread instead of at the end! LOL I just came from the tww site and I think I spent about two hours reading stuff on there! So much for getting laundry done today...LOL. That site was funny, i was reading on the symptoms that some women had, i didn't even make it half way through page 2 when I had to read something else...getting depressed that they all had bfp's and i had 2 bfn's, plus I needed something else to read, it was getting a bit overwhelming and I started to think maybe all the weird things with me was a sign. I liked the 2ww symptoms and the funny ttc signs and the pee on a stick humor was great! I read that one woman had no symptoms at all and she was pregnant, one woman had very little symptoms and she was pg...I'm hoping that i'm like one of them. I don't want to over a___lyze myself so I'll post what i'm feeling and you girls let me know what I should think. LOL does that sound weird or what!? Okay, here goes: Feeling sick-like, some smells of food make me feel sick, can't sleep, can't sleep on stomach - when I try it's not for long, stomach always feel full to touch -when i press on it, sometimes i'll be hungry and have no interest in eating, slight pains in lower abdomen -mostly right side but has been left side occasionally, I'm tired but can't fall asleep at times, shortness of breath when i go upstairs - and I won't be carrying anything, also short of breath when I walk briskly, Some crankiness, legs are achey, hard stool one day then next day stool will be almost diarrhea like..I'm sorry, tmi but that's something that's going on. When i see a baby in the store or a baby on tv i get really depressed and almost to the point where i want to scream, I'm peeing more often than I used to and that's w/o drinking a lot of liquids. DH has noticed the frequent peeing thing, but nothing else. Everytime i say i have to pee he'll say...Again!? Anyway those are my symptoms...now i did notice a little blood when i brushed my teeth but i think it was just bcuz i was brushing too hard. Bb's aren't sore or veiny or leaky like some other's say they have, the nausea isn't as bad, in fact that's almost gone away, i just get a blah feeling now and then. So that's all...so you tell me, what do you think?

Hello, I'm back. I found this great site that you may want to check out...especially if you are pregnant and even better if you're trying and you know what you want, boy or girl. This site tells you when you are fertile and it pinpoints the days to bd if you want a boy or girl..it's really neat. It also includes a chinese baby calculator, of course it's just for fun. It goes week by week of baby's growth inside mommy, Suebecca, Lucy, and whoever else..this would be interesting for you! But enough of me rambling on, here's the site! www.pregnancy-symptoms.org/ Enjoy!

 

C Lynn - October 11

I don't mean to be a postaholic here but I was looking at that Chinese Baby Calendar and if I am pg, from bding in Sept., the calendar says it's a boy. I know...it's just for fun. But my older sis went by that and it said she was going to have a boy..she had a boy. My cousin went by that and it said she was going to have a girl, she had a girl. My older sister's friend went by that, it said girl for her, she had a girl. Now I don't know if it was just luck or it this thing is actually right. But I want a girl, badly!, and to do that I would need to get pg. in Oct., Nov. or Dec.. I know this sound terrible after all the wishing I've been doing but I'm hoping the Sept. bding didn't work, and that when DH and i bd'd the other night, it worked. I have two more days to make it work before I O. Of course, if I timed it right in September then there's still a chance of having a girl...but i'm just not sure when we bd'd in September...oh the agony of not knowing! why'd i look at that site? now i'll be under more stress to time it just right! grrrr!!! I'm going to bed!

 

Sally C - October 11

C Lynn Thanks for posting your history again; helps me know you a little. I think not being able to lay on your stomache can be a sign; It didn't happen with my son until later but with my 2nd I noticed it right from the start.

 

Sally C - October 11

Guess no one is on yet. I woke up this am feeling so wierd; like I was still asleep or drunk; maybe low blood sugar? I know I haven't been eating too well but I did eat some dinner last night. I still can't face the coffee and dd's harboiled eggs smell grosser than usual (I've never been an egg fan). Don't feel like eating but I know it would probably help. My lower back is still hurting. Indie, I keep feeling like grabbing the stick too but just can't face a BFN that may not be accurate. I would still wonder.

 

ashley - October 11

5:45am Mountain standard time, IM TIRED! I was so hungry last night. I ate a HUGE meal at around 7ish and then was hungry again by 9. Thats not me. I was having a hard time falling asleep too! I had like heart burn in my throat. And my stomach felt odd. (hmmm Im getting as bad as the girls on the tww.com lol Well Clynn I dont know that I believe in those things because sperm comes out of your DH the way its going to come out. And the race is on from there to see who gets there. I sorta believe in the timing thing if you hold off and want a girl, but as far as bding when O is now, then no because both will get there. Anyway, its off to go start my car and then go to the hospital for my fun in clinicals. My patient today had surgery to repair an abdominal hernia. FUN FUN.

 

Lucy - October 11

Morning all, just checking in to see how everyone is doing. I looked at the Chinese Preg Calendar and it says a baby girl for me.....which is what i am hoping for but i guess we'll have to wait and see. Just a thought who will find out the s_x of the baby when the time comes...... I have found that over in the US it is much more common to find out than the UK. I think i will find out just because i can prepare myself if i have another boy LOL

 

Emily - October 11

CLynn, FYI, the Chiense calander worked for my dd, Mary. It said girl, and there it was a girl. THe doctor guessede boy, but she wasn't my notmal doc. He was out of town when I went into labor...But the lady who delivered Mary was great. My sis also thought it was a boy. SHe kept asking how her nefew was. Lucy, we chose not to find out the s_x. I think I want to know this time, although I would have to get preg first huh? I had another dream - I peed on the stick and it was pos! I took the test while my sis was there and had to lie to her and tell her it was neg, so my x-mas revealing plans worked....Okay, nw I am going to be really depressed if it is neg. my last cycle started on a sunday, so if I got preg, my preg calader would start on a sunday, I wouldn't be confused as I filled it out. (i kept a preg cal on both preg) I want to get preg now so I will be far enough along to tell everyone at Christmas. I told everyone right away with Mary and the baby, but now I think I will be too scared to tell anyone but maybe my mom right away. Yesterday, I also started feeling cramps again. THe kind of pre af cramps that I get teh day I start. Once I start, the cramps are full b__wn and I ma doubled over in pain for three to five days, just for the cramps to subside for the remaining three or so days. I know tmi! It is way too early to feel those pre af cramps though. Maybe I am imagining this!?!? As you can tell I am still going crazy....Lucy, Suebecca, I found a cool questionare when I was preg with Mary to determine the s_x of the baby. I don't have the website, buit could post the questions if you were interested.....Jessica are you at work yet? Any more bfp or the dreaded af?

 

Emily - October 11

Okay just to confirm, I am going crazy, I work as a clerk in the office of a trucking company. (Such a glamorous job for someone who has a college degree, I know, but I am five minutes from home with flexible hours and can take off at the drop of a hat if Mary needs me…) Anyway, at work, I work with a computer program that track maintence records on our equipment. The program tells us by mileage if preventative maintenance is doe on a truck. On screen shows us how many mileas something is overdue by. Well with baby on the brain all the time, I just glanced at it and though overdue was ovulate! I am going crazy Ashley, I don’t really belive that stuff either, but its kinda fun….I had terrible heartburn when I was preg, and I never get heartburn, maybe this is your month, I am still praying for everyone….

 

elleboogie - October 11

I so hope that we all get BFP's. Welcome to all of our newcomers...today is cd25, 10 more days til testing. I thought that's where i was yesterday. Oh well!

 

Emily - October 11
