Terri - October 7

Suebecca, cravings are so funny aren't they. With my 1st daughter I craved cheese. I would actually buy a cheeseball and eat it like an apple. I could gag now thinking about that! lol

 

Suebecca - October 7

LOL Terri! That is pretty extreme, but yes, the cravings are all-consuming. Now, I have pizza on the brain. Last week it was chili-cheese fries w/ jalepenos... and well, that craving hasn't completely gone away either. :)

 

Emily - October 7

Justine that is what I figured, but who knows…We bd six days before, three days before, two days before and then the day after plus this morning, but I am pretty sure nothing will come of that! It doesn’t sound every promising…DH has not been all that accommodating this month. Last month he was very accommodating…maybe this month his little swimmers will be more concentrated. Sperm can live up to like 5 days in a woman’s body though if conditions are right…. I can’t wait till next weekend when I can test…. I am trying to be somewhat mellow about it. I don’t want to get my hopes up too high, just to be dashed by that blasted line, or well I guess the absence of the blasted line. Sometimes I want to rip those flimsy little hpt into shreds… I think that next time I get preg I will tell everybody the rabbit died and see if they get it…. (In the like 20’s or 30’s, they used to take woman’s fmu and inject it into a rabbit’s ovary. If there were certain ovarian changes, the woman was preg. If no changes, the woman was not. Something about the hGC hormone in a preg woman’s urine that made the ovaries change. Well if the test was pos, they would say the rabbit died. In fact all the rabbits had to die sot hey could examine the ovaries, but the phrase stuck. What I want to know is who thought, lets inject this poor little rabbit with a woman’s urine?!?!) Anyway enough weird stories…I am glad we don’t’ use rabbits anymore…could you imagine?

Justine - Yes I did have a very strange af last month. It only lasted 2 days, v. heavy 1st day went through everything and I still changed every hr, 2nd day was lighter, 3rd day nothing. Emily - you sound like me, I'm ??? dpo. I just know that af is due 10/21. This month I was unable to track cm, I might've missed it or something, who knows. Suebecca- Gotta love those cravings...With my daughter I couldnt have anything but macaroni & cheese, everything else would come right back up and if you see this little girl eat mac & cheese, its the funniest thing. She could have it for all 3 meals and not even care. We went foodshopping yesterday and she was like mommy dont forget the mac & cheese, it was already in the cart....lol....So lots of lunchdates today, great...I just hope that dh doesnt leave before I get there. I'm going to surprise him, hopefully he doesnt surprise me and leave early for work. :-(

Ashley - that is such great news about the adoption....yay!!!! Okay, update on the lil sis, she's doing alright today. My older sis went over there to check on her and that jerk was there, he was sleeping. Lis sis said everything was alright now, yeah...until he decides to be a jerk again! My entire family knows that this relationship is not good, we're hoping it doesn't last because it's just a pattern with him (he's nice, he gets mad, he b__ws up at her, calls her names and then comes back and says he's sorry and she's naive enough to believe him) Anyway, I don't want to read too much into this but last night I could not fall asleep, I don't know how I managed to fall asleep after a while. I'm a stomach sleeper, I like to sleep on my stomach. I was trying to fall asleep last night, well, early this morning, and I couldn't! My tummy felt...ugh! So I turned onto my side and I think I was out after that. Another thing, I was starving last night and Ramen noodles sounded really good. When I went to make them I lost interest, nothing looked or sounded good! And then I had a dream that I was pg! I don't remember how far along I was but I remember I was pg in the dream. Well, this will be the only post from me today...and all weekend. DH and I are getting a way for the weekend, this should be fun....and cold! I hope you ladies don't go thread wild on me while I'm gone! LOL I spent 15 minutes catching up this morning on reading! Anyway, have a great weekend all!

 

amyn - October 7

well girls, not to give TMI but I think I'm oing today or already did??? I got a positive on the opk test on Wed, had very little egwcm a few days ago, then just now when I went to the bathroom, I had a bunch, so whats your opinions? DH and I bd on Mon, Wed and now tonight we will so do you think that should be enough? I read conflicting info on how long sperm can live, some say 2-3 days and some say 4-5 days, I'm betting on the 2-3 days to be safe. Gosh I hope this is the month, guess I'll find out in 2-3 weeks, huh.. any opinoins would be greatly appreciated ladies.. take care and thanks

 

Justine - October 7

Hi Amy - I think that as long as you're seeing ewcm then keep bd as it would suggests that you're still highly fertile. I've had tons of ewcm all week but only got + on opk yesterday so we're continuing to bd for a couple more days. Looks like your bd schedule is just fine! C Lynn - have a great weekend, relax and hoping af continues to stay away. Suebecca - just give in to those cravings and enjoy... Emily - that was a crazy story about the rabbits, I've never heard that before and yes, who ever came up with the idea in the first place. Jessica - I guess we're still the weird af thread!

 

Emily - October 7

Amy, just continue on as you are ding. If you got a pos on the okp, and lots of ewcm, then I say this is the time to bd. I am waiting....I can't stand it. Part of me wants to fast forward to the part where I can test. I am about 5dpo. Then part of me wants to go abck and bd some more to make sure we got the job done. My dh was in a grumpy mood this month. Maybe he wore himself out last month! Anyway I still have time. We weren't really going to start trying yet anyway, but then I got preg anyway. We were so happy about it. Then I lost the baby, and we dicided to go ahead and try agin right way. So this is 2 months ttc. It took us 4 months with my 14 mo old Mary. I dont' want to wait 4 months again....but I supose if I have to....After 4 months I am going ot get worried. I know I shouldn't some people wait a lot long to concieve and I am sorry I don't want to offfend anyone. I just am impatiant. I was worried for a while we won't be able to have kids....Anyway, good louck to all, hope good news comes your way in a couple of weeks, Amy....

 

Jessica - October 7

Justine - Definitely still the weird af stage. I'm just going with the flow of things.

 

amyn - October 7

Justine and Emily, thanks ladies for the advice. Emily, I'm sorry about your m/c I think you'll get a BFP soon, try not to stress too much cause that can cause problems too.. This is our 3rd month ttc and my 5th month of birth control.. I know we will all get BFP's soon.. Good luck ladies and have a great weekend.

 

Suebecca - October 7

I am SOOO full. You ladies will never guess how much pizza I ate today? 4 slices!! LOL! I love the pizza at this place around the corner from work. Dh said it was one of the best pizzas he ever ate. I can hardly breathe now. :) Jessica, my step-daughter loves mac & cheese too... it's like all she eats. :) Maybe my kid will love pizza. That's cute! Amym, good luck w/ the O! I bet you'll be doing lots of bd'ing this weekend! Have fun!

 

Me2 - October 7

Hey all! Well dh and I haven't do to much bd this month because we both have been too busy and tired and now I have the Flu!!! So, again, I doubt if I will have a bfp this month. We did manage to bd a few times so far this month though and it was around the beginning of my fertile period, but I doubt if that helped any. I am still looking excited and looking forward to some more BFP on here....HOORAY for more BFP's.

 

Emily - October 7

Maybe, pizza would be a good thing to like...My dh mom loved tomatoes when she was preg w/ him and he hates them! He will eat tomato sauce and stuff but hates teh tomoto by itself...My mom ate a lot of lipten soup when she was preg, and I hate it but my sisters love it...so you never know....

 

Suebecca - October 7

Emily, I don't know... I love pizza. It's the perfect food. I would eat it 24/7 if I could. :) I am still stuffed and it's making me very sleepy.... Me2, the flu? Already? Wow! That sucks. I hope you feel better soon!!

 

Emily - October 7

Today I am feeling blah...you know sometimes that is the only way to describe it...Well I think my bbs are sore too, which if I am not making myself feel it, its a good thing, cause my bbs were always sore when I was preg, but I only really noticed it after I was about 6 weeks or more along and now I am only about 5dpo, at my best guess....I did have a really weird dream last night. All of this talk about buying preg tests getting to me I guess. I dreamt that I went to Dollar General and bought three tests. Two were generic and one was a Clear Blue Easy. I had to really seach for them. Once I found them, they had like a hundred of the cheapo dollar general ones. Even they were a buck 50 of piece. The CBE was in a box and the generic ones were just out. I went up to pay for them and the casheir tried to ring up everything on teh counter as mine. I told her like fifty times that only the three items were mine. Then my total was 33 dollars! It was strange. Then I got to looking at the generic tests. They were really wierd. ?You peed ont he stick then you plugged you curling iron into the end you hold and you stick the end you peed on into another peice. That peice had to parts coming off of it. If you were pregnant, teh line would jump from the part you ped on to the left side, and if you weren't it would jump tot he right side. Weired huh? I wich I would have dreamed about me taking the test so I could see what the results were. Although that test was even weirer thant he rabit thing, what was with the curlinf iron. It pugged into the test, so it wasn'tplugged into teh wall or anything. I have such weired dreams. One night I had a really strange dream. I had jsut gotten married and was still going to shcool. I got married wehn I was a senoir in college. I had to travel about 45 min to school and I had a dream that I had to walk one day. My dh was riding on a horse next to me, THen we were being chased by a Wankle. It as a ram head and lions body. I was researchign my dh family tree at the time and one of the family names I was researching was Wankle. Strange huh? ANyway sorry for the babling, I am bored today......

 

Me2 - October 7

Thanks Suebecca. Yep, I have the flu already (at least the beginning phases of it-extreme fatigue, stuffy nose, sore muscles, etc.) Every time there's a drastic change of weather here in Chicago, this happens to me. It was 87 degrees on Wednesday and only 57 Thursday and around 60 today. I was fine until last night and it hit me all at once, lol. Usually, when I have the flu I lose my appet_te, but today I can't get enough to eat, lol.
