By the way I was soooo lazy last night I went to bed at 7:45 Moutain standard time! didn't get up until 5am and that was hard! lol I sure hope it wiped out this vertigo I have been having! lol This is my last day of clinicals for the week. Then its off to lecture next week....sighhhhh.........it feels like its never ending! I can't wait to be done! Well hope everybody has a GREAT day. Justine why are you going in already? Did you get AF or a BFP this month? Sorry if I am being dumb, I can't remember. Clynn hope the house thing goes good.

Hi all... looking forward to getting news of some bfps from someone today. ;-) ashley, are you in nursing school?

 

Emily - October 13

Well the rabit is alive and well, so to speak. Translation: bfn...Only 10 dpo though so maybe there is still hope. I don't know. Mayybe I shouldn't have tested so soon, but I couldn't help it. Af isn't due til Sunday. If she don't show by this time next week, I will know soimething is up. I have never tested this early so I don't know if I would have shown neg or pos before. I only tested the day befoer af was due and two days after she was due witht eh second. When I was preg witht the baby, I tested two days after missed af and it was very very faint. I had to strain to see it. So maybe it is too early now, I don't know. I am kinda sepressed now. It is dh and I anniversary and we both have to work. THis weekend we are going away for the weekend, maybe that will keep my mind off of babies. I hope af doesn't show up this weekned, then I really will be bumed. A-i hate af even when I am not trying to get preg. I am in pain the whole blasted time....B-it really means my hopes are dashed this month, and C-it won't be any fun on my weekend away...ANyway I hope all are having a better day than I......But on a better note....The St. Louis Cardinals won last night. I don't know if we have any sports fans here or not, but my grandmother rasied us all to be Cardinal fans. She even got upset when my parents bought a blue van. SHe thought it was cub blue...sorry any cub fans...And my daughter climbed up on my lap last nihgt, lay her head on my shoulder and fell asleep. She hasn't doen that in a long time. she is usually just go, go , go! Anyway, thanks God for the little things. you know just talking to you all is making me feel better. ANyway, how is everyone else feeling???

 

Jessica - October 13

Awwwww Emily - Good morning and sorry for the BFN, I think if you tested two days after missed af and got a v. faint positive then it's definitely too early for you to test. Keep positive, I know easier said than done. CLynn - congrats and good luck with the house the grants and first-time homebuyers stuff is good for us young people trying to buy a house. I think it was you that asked if they could call me Jess - that's not a problem my grandmother calls me that and close family members and you are all my family/friends so that's just fine. Ashley - you're very strong, I would've been a ball of tears. I am hoping for bfp's this month. Got a zit on my forehead and I dont have bangs Grrrr, I hate zits. Alot of pressure, I remember when I was pg with my m/c'd baby and I had a slight cold, when I would cough I'd get a pain in my side. Well I feel a cold coming on now and when I coughed this morning I had the same pain. Body just feels different this month. Maybe it's all the babytalk but I sure hope to get a BFP. feeling pressure behind my bellyb___ton too. Happy anniversary Emily, isnt it the best when your little one just comes and cuddles with you, my daughter did that last night. We were done with homework, eating, showers, etc that we had time to bond since there isnt any school today. Oh it was the best, we both ended up dozing off while watching tv....Hope - Enjoy your holiday...Suebecca was no where online yesterday, I hope she's ok. Lucy tomorrow is your big day at the dr's you have to keep us posted. How are our BFP's feeling today? Dh came home from work this morning, poor thing is sooooo sick. He has a bad cold possibly the flu. No make-up bding this morning, I'm going to see if maybe I can get some in tonight. We talked when he came home, he just held me tight all night, it was good to just lay and cuddle. Weather is still dark and dreary here, I need some sunshine.

I am hoping it was too early. I fo back and fourth between thinking this the month and this isn't the month. I will test again if af doesn't show. With Mary a pos turned up two days before af was due. With the baby it was two day after and the pos was v. faint. It is also possible I ovulated late and my af calulation is off. I missed physical signs and am going off of cycle days. Not as scientific. Well I hope everyone is well. Ashley, hope clinicals go well. My sis grad from nursing school this past may. she now worksa s a critical care nurse in an er. She says that when something bad happens, she doesn't have time to think about it until afterward....I hope all goes well today. How are our bfp doing? Maybe some of us can join you soon...

 

Justine - October 13

Morning everyone. Emily - i think you definitely tested too early as v. few ladies seem to get bfp at 10 dpo. Don't get down yet and just enjoy your weekend away with dh as ttc can soooo easily start to take over everything and spoil it. Jessica - yey, i'm happy that you and dh made up as you were so sad yesterday. perhaps he was grumpy because he was getting sick. as for your zit, i've had 7 (7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) so far in the last few days and they're all spread v. decoratively on different parts of my face... grrrrr! Ashley - af hasn't come yet but i promised myself last cycle that if af showed up (which she did) then i would go and see a dr this cycle as i'm 34 and been ttc #1 for 8 months now. so i think it's time to see what's going on, or more specifically what is not going on! Suebecca - where are you? i hope everything is ok.

 

Jessica - October 13

1 week til testing time......... Today is my father's birthday,next Friday (test day) is my mom's birthday. So I o'd between 10/1 & 10/7 according to most O calendars because my cm was hard to calculate and I promised myself no OPKs this month. So i'm between 6-12 dpo depending on when I o'd. I think it was on the 4-5th of Oct so I'm going with 8dpo's today. Fingers crossed ladies. We had 2 last month and have some more for this month....The odds are in our favor...

 

Jessica - October 13

Justine - Oh my 7??? (sorry) Well maybe that is a good sign. I would make an appt with the dr but only after af is due, you should make the appt for right around your next O time. If it's a really good dr like where my stepsister went maybe they'll do an u/s and let you know exactly when you might be o'ing. Her dr did that for her. I also have a tilted uterus and dr said that even though that doesnt prevent me from conceiving it just takes me a little longer than others....Good luck with that.

 

Justine - October 13

Thanks Jessica. I have already made an appointment for tomorrow as I'm thinking all of this might take time so I wanted to get the ball rolling asap. hopefully all of this will be unnecessary if i get bfp next week. i don't really know what the problem is as my af is v. regular and i'm pretty sure i'm ovulating as shown by + opk and biphasic temp chart but who knows. are you feeling better today?

 

Indie - October 13

Awwww Emily...sorry you got that bfn...but remember, it's not a real bfn until you get a bfn and af comes to visit. Some women don't get bfp until well past af due date so I don't think you should dwell on it. Easier said than done I know. FOcus on your anniversary (CONGRATS!) and weekend away and the time will fly by and you can test again soon.

 

Emily - October 13

jessica, justine, indie, thanks so much for your thoughts. I will try not to dwell on it. I hope you all are having a great day. Mine is good concidering...

 

amyn - October 13

Morning Ladies... I'm feeling rather moody today myself.. My bbs are swollen (typical sign of AF coming so is the moodiness) I just calculated if my AF is on a 24 day cycle (which is the average since I've been off the pill) it should actually come on Monday the 17th and I'll probably start cramping/spotting this Sat.. not the 19th.. So I guess if I don't get it by the 23rd I'll take a test.. My fingers are crossed but hopes aren't up, I just don't think I'll be pg this month, :( oh well guess I have to be patient (and that is not one of my virtues)..

 

Jessica - October 13

Justine - much better today, thank you. Keep us posted on what your doctor says also. So tomorrow we have 2 dr's appts yours and Lucy's. I was just reading that article with the woman that had her 16th child...My co-workers think that I'm crazy but I'd be the same way if I could afford it.....Emily - I agree with Indie, still too early and anniversary is our focus. How many years has it been? Amyn - we have to stay positive. It's not over til af shows her face. Bb's feeling kinda heavy for me today, I looked at my bra and it feels kinda tight today. Who knows.

 

amyn - October 13

not to get gross, but I've been checking my cervix daily or twice a day (is that bad?) and its still high and open (hopefully a good sign) plus my cm is watery?? just started getting some cramps in my back (but I have lower back problems anyways so could be that)... I'm just a narotic mess. ahhhhhhhhhh

 

Lucy - October 13

Good morning, how is everyone feeling today. As you know i had my first son in England and there you don't have to pay for the whole thing (you get to pay higher taxes yuk) So now i am starting to panic as to howmuch it will cost me. We have insurance.

 

Justine - October 13

Amy - i understand why you're feeling blah, i always start to get down once i realise af is approaching. i know we always say it but keep positive until af actually shows. suebecca had af cramping and thought af had arrived for a day or so and then turned out to be pg so you just never know. jessica - i saw that article too. you had to hand it to her as she still looked great despite having had 16 children. i think i'll be satisfied with just two though but good luck to her!
