How excited you must be. When are you going to make a doctors appointment?

 

Lucy - October 5

I am very excited i want to tel the world so far its only dh and you guys that know. I haven't made an appointment yet, do you usually wait a certain amount of weeks or do you just call as soon as you find out. Sorry if it seems a dumb question just new to the US and the medical system !!

Oh Ashley-that's wonderful that sil is staying in mil's house. I'd start taking down the crib before they get any ideas. DH I think actually means (darling husband or dear husband) but on certain days I think we can use your term, today it kinda fits better. PMS - great, thank goodness I wont have to be dealing with that and if I do it's long-distance....Your Fil sounds like a funny guy...I cant believe that your sil & bil just left everything, now i imagine they have all that stuff in the place where they're staying now so why not pack it away somewhere or get rid of it. Isnt it fun having a spot for things that you never thought you'd be able to pull out of the closet, let alone use it. I have no clue what was up with that chicken that I got the eggs from but hopefully she brought be some babydust to the house. Suebecca- its fun to joke about dh being a machine especially since it worked. Enjoy your lunch, did you get any snoozing in at the bookstore again? How was your dinner? Did you make your London Broil with broccoli/asparagus?? April H, sounds promising, no spotting yet or any signs of af.

I'm so confused, Fertilityfriend says that I'm due to O tomorrow and not today, I havent had any ewcm this cycle so far. So Lucy, you had perfect timing, that's great!!! I'd be super excited too...I would just call the doctor and see what they advise because they would want you to start your prenatal vitamins and just get the basic weight, blood counts etc to start their tracking. Each state is kind of different though. When we get our BFP's we're usually about 5-6 weeks pg so I would call they might give you an appt for a few weeks from now just to do everything. Emily - are you here? Have you had spotting in the middle of your af's?

Hi Lucy! I feel fat today. I have had so much bloating and I am sticking out. Urgh! Lucy, have you had any consistent bloating also? Thank god I have an appt. with my OBGYN tomorrow. Maybe we can put all of this doubting to rest.

Oops! One more thing I forgot to ask. I had discharge after ovulation almost all the way up until a couple of days ago. Now there really doesn't seem to be anything. I did decide to check my cervix out last night. When I pulled my finger out, it was a milky watery discharge but it really didn't come out during the day. Lucky, have you had discharge? Or did you?

 

Lucy - October 5

April - yes i felt bloated all last week i really felt like af was coming. I am also usually quite veiny(sp) on my bb's but i notice one particular one looked liked it was bulging out and i noticed the white bumps on them too. I hope you are you are so good at not testing

 

Lucy - October 5

As for discharge since CM i had a tiny amount just enough that you could notice it on your underwear (sorry tmi) ha ha ha

 

Lucy - October 5

Jessica - i missed your post. Thanks for the info i'll call the doctor now and see what they have to say.

 

ashley - October 5

Jessica, I think those places like fertility friend go of clincial data and you have to take into account not all woman are equal. They say only 15% of woman have an actual 28 day cycle. And the rule of thumb is count 14 days back from the day you are expecting AF and that is when you ovulate, but if there are no other signs like the ewcm, I would follow the ewcm or try and OPK. amyN sorry I jumped the gun about the BFP I am just so ready to see some more!!! But I have faith you'll have a BFP on an hpt before you know it! Lucy they say rule of thumb is to make a doctors appointment when you confirm a positive test at home. Some times they can't always get you in right away and your apointment may be set up for when they think you should come in. I would call to make sure. Jessica I think that chicken was definitely send you some baby dust.

April I think you'll get an answer one way or another when you go see the ob/gyn tomorrow. When I was pregnant with my daughter I had what seemed to be a ton of discharge, more than what I experienced throught out my cycles. It was almost cloudy/milky. It didn't last the whole pregnancy though. My b___bs got HUGE and veiny. More prounounced veiny. Jessica (can't remember if that was you or not asking or mentioning) but I read my woman's health text book a little yesteray and it said woman can spot mid cycle when ovulating! I would go to the dollar store and find one of those OPK's for a buck and see.

 

Jessica - October 5

Thanks Ashley, I'm going crazy over here. Then the whole thing about the Luteal Phase etc...It's all very confusing, no EWCM at all this month, weird. I mean I do have cm but not alot. Sorry if tmi...I'm on a regular 35 day cycle and I've been spotting between last af and now. I promised myself no OPKs this month but if it doesnt work then I'll break down and get one for next month. 14 days before af is on the 7th...See what I mean...LOL...I'll try and do what i said, let nature take it's course and leave it all in God's hands...

 

ashley - October 5

I didn't find the answer in my text books any where, but really haven't searched around on the net yet either. Does any body know as far as the ewcm goes, do you ovulate on the last day you see the ewcm?? I haven't noticed any today. I sorta feel slight cramping way low, but don't know what the heck that would be from. I just have this feeling that I already ovulated. (Friday I was surely convinced because I felt the cramping on the left side, and saw the ewcm about 20-30 minutes after s_x. But then it came back off and on this weekend. I wonder in rare instances if you could actually ovulate twice? Especially if your body's hormones are out of whack and trying to regulate? I skipped cla__s today to stay home and get the house in order because I THOUGHT sil was going to stay here, but thank goodness she's not. Now I am just being lazy. unpacking here or there.

 

Jessica - October 5

Ashley - can you believe that the dollar store did not have any hpt's or opk's, I went the other day so either someone is test crazy like myself and purchased all of them or they are discontinuing them. I really hope that a testaholic just purchased all of them. When I was pg with my m/c'd baby I had the same thing, bb's got huge and heavy, I'm naturally veiny so I couldnt go by that and alot of cm also. Well here's to another 16 days of going insane...LOL...

 

Suebecca - October 5

Jessica, Isn't it weird... al the same symptoms. We'll see!!!! I did make my london broil last night and it was super yummy. Dh even liked it, yet he's not a huge fan of london broil. I just had my sandwich and a cheese stick for lunch and I'm still hungry! What's wrong w/ me??? LOL! I'm going to make chicken and rice tonight. Now, I've got to stop talking about food! I didn't snooze in the bookstore today. I was reading some pg books, as usual. There was one I read today that was really good. I think it was called "Your PG Week by Week." Very good read. I LOVE MY KITCHEN AIDE MIXER! So does dh and I got mine too for my wedding shower Ashley! Isn't that thing heavenly? I don't know about Lucy, but I'm dealing w/ the same stuff, major fatigue, bloating, white/clear discharge, minor cramping and a bit more senstive bbs. Morning sickness still hasn't hit and hopefully it won't. Lucy, what are you dealing w/? How far along are you?

 

ashley - October 5

Jessica if your days are REGULAR and always 35 days apart, I wouldn't panic if you dont see ewcm until closer to the 7th then. Its the 5 today? If you haven't seen any by the 7th maybe its just very scant and not that noticable this month. Just stick to bding every other day. Subecca and Clynn you guys crack me up about the machine thing. My DH would die and go to heaven if I would initiate s_x and want it everyday. If I was pushing for 3 times a day maybe he'd say something, but man he complains that 3 x a week is not enough!!! lol See and thats the weird thing. I have been talking about wanting to ttc for MONTHS now. I told him I had wanted to start trying last month, but its like he's still feeling we aren't trying yet and I have given in though we are not using anything, and it makes me scared that if I do get a bfp then he will think I tricked him or something. I reminded him last night that he did do his thing inside me and he was like "should I have not done that?" I said you wont here me complaining you know I want a baby. We already have a girl name picked out. "Lilian (lilly) Kinzle" after his great grandma Kinzle was her maiden name and Lilian was her first name. I think its cute.
