May there be lots of BFPs in Part 23!

 

Becca - November 21

OK, I guess everyone is still sleeping this morning. Over the weekend I developed a beautiful arangement of red dots on my face (aka zits) so now you can trace the constellations on my face. Gross - I haven't looked like this since I was 13!! Is it to early for symptoms? 5dpo today.

Hi, Becca. I'm fairly new but have posted a couple of times. I'm a bit further past ovulation than you (would have been Sun 11.13 or Mon. 11.14), but I, like you, got some whopper zits late last week and this weekend. I mean, the huge kind that hurt your whole face. I haven't had an outbreak like this in years. I suppose I could feel the outbreak coming on around 5 days, like you. I have also had some b___st tenderness and some lower cramping, not like when I start, but like I feel the week before I start. I guess all of these symptoms could be pms, but it seems a bit early for that for me. Usually wouldn't start feeling this until this week. I'm not due to start until 11/29, so I'm trying to hold off wasting the money on a test until at least Wed. or Thurs. Let me know how it goes.

Also welcome akh--hoping there is more bfp's this month!! then we all can start a thread for preggo women!!

Good morning ladies- Well I hopr that everyone is on their way to BFP'. Becca, I think anything that is totally out of the ordinary that occurs after ovulation could maybe be a good sign. My sister-in-law who is pregnant had that as her first sign both times. Ma__sive break-out! Well, I have three-four more days until AF arrives. I did a HPT on Saturday and Sunday morning, but both BFN - I have a feeling it's not going to be my month. The only thing that is different this time is my temps have stayed high and steady this month, where they usually fluctuate above the coverline after O. Also, come 5PM every evening since about 3DPO I have waves of what feel to be dull, achy AF cramps, and much more white CM for this stage of the cycle. Trying very hard to be prepared for AF as the past couple of months have been particularly hard getting hopes up and having them dashed. Hoepfully, it will happen soon.....

Good Morning Ladies! Soooo glad it is a short week!! I am thinking about even taking Wednesday off - can't decide! Bean - can't wait to hear the results!!!

 

bean - November 21

Good Morning Ladies... drum roll please.... and.... IT'S A GIRL!!!! :) We're soooo excited! The ultrasound was just awesome! It was so much fun. She looks beautiful - everything seems perfect. I drank a couple gla__ses of oj before my apt and she was dancing all over the screen. The cutest part was we were trying to see her face, and all of a sudden she puts up two little fists in front of her face like playing peek-a-boo (or don't look!). :) We're thrilled! This will be the first grand and great-grand child on my side, and the first girl grand-child on dh's side. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am! Dh celebrated by getting me a beautiful bouquet of red roses... it's been years since I've gotten red roses! What a great way to start of a holiday week! Too bad it's back to work now...

 

Jennifer - November 21

Awhhhh Bean! I am so happy for you!! Congrats!!!!!!! Do you have a names picked out? That was very sweet of dh :)

 

bean - November 21

Becca - I can't believe you're getting so many signs already! Only 5dpo! Wow! You'll be seeing double lines really really soon. Akh - welcome - things sound great for you as well. Cris - good luck at the dct tomorrow and please let us know how things went as soon as you come back. Nancy - crossing fingers and toes for you that af stays away! Hope everyone else is doing well too. Enjoy your Mondays!

 

bean - November 21

Thanks Jennifer!!! Yup - Isabella is it (for now). May change still... but it's been the top choice for a while. Hee hee.. I'm in such a good mood!

 

Jennifer - November 21

I bet you are! We are hoping for a girl since dh already has a boy, but I would be perfectly happy with either. I can't wait to find out what we are having! Wont be for at least 3 more months. *Sigh* Do you ahve bedding already picked out for a girl? I know you said before that you and dh already attempted registering a week or so ago??

 

kat - November 21

Becca! Here is my info and thank you so much for your response! Last month cycle began on 25th, this month started again on 17th, so only three weeks! Not sure why that is happening. I am experiencing alot of difficulty this second time around, has been almost a year since trying again. I have heard alot of people mention Vitex?? I did go and get some. Do you have any other info you may be able to share with me on that product or it's effectiveness??

 

kat - November 21

I just wanted to thank all you ladies for allowing me into your forum! Great to have the support. I am new! I am in the philadelphia area!! To all the girls who are expecting congratulations! And i had asked becca this but does anyone know about the effectivness of vitex????

 

Nancy - November 21

congratulations Bean! How exciting, now that you know she is in there and doing well, now is the time to enjoy the rest of your pregnancy as much as you can. Congratulations once again...and Isabella is a beautiful name. How long were you ttc?

 

akh - November 21

Thanks everyone for the welcome. I'm 35 years old trying for the first time and dh (what does that stand for?) is much older, so I have some fears and concerns. Trying not to let fear manifest a reality (we invite what we invoke, a good friend of mine says), but with our ages, I guess I'd like to know now if there is a problem. This is the second month of active trying, which I know is not long. But it sure seems like it! I appreciate everyone's support here. Nice to know I'm not alone. I just couldn't wait and went to buy some tests this morning. I'm going to hold off until tomorrow morning, which I know is too early, but it's two days longer than when I originally wanted to test. Can't say I have any enormous symptoms, other than the ginormous zits and a small bit of lower back and abdomen cramping. Ah well, here's hoping!

Nancy - I went of bc in Mar, got lucky in May but m/c pretty early. After that we really started ttc-ing (no temping or opk's, just keeping track) and got lucky again in August. I'm now 18wks and this is our first. Jennifer - haven't gotten to the details yet - like colors or bedding. But yup, we did start registering for big stuff like car seats and strollers. How have you been feeling? How far along are you now? Ok ladies - I really gotta get some work done! :)

 

Jennifer - November 21

I have felt great! Just hungry alot adn b___bs are really swollen and sore. Haven't got morning sickness and I am hoping that sticks! I am 61/2 weeks and have my first dr appt. Dec. 5th. Staci J - how are you? and who is next to test?
