Kate - July 2

Hey Gina, here's a new thread for us to wait with! LOL...is your AF still going strong? Cause mine is just spotting today it seems, just the 2 days of normal flow(can't say I'm complaining about that though...lol). This is our month, I can feel it!!!

 

Gina - July 3

Hey Kate, I just saw this one! Now we can have two! My AF has slowed down, they are usually pretty short, 3 days. Today will make the 4th, and I will probably just have very light flow. I feel like this is our month too!!!! Are you monitoring anything? I am crazy, doing everything that I have heard of. I want this so bad, I cry at every "Baby Story" on TLC. What cycle day are you on? Fingers crossed!!!

 

Kate - July 3

Well, I had brown spotting on Wed(June 29)my flow started Thur and it was a bit heavier on Fri. Yesterday it was very light and today is just spotting again. So I'm counting Thursday as my first day(since that's when I saw red blood). Is that the best way to count? Sounds like we are on exactly the same schedule! I'm going to temp this month, and I have no idea how to check the cervix so maybe I'll read up on that.

 

Gina - July 3

We are on exactly the same schedule! My flow actually started on Thursday also, with spotting Wednesday night. I am not just spotting again. That is so strange! :) I think Thursday is the best day to count as the first cycle day. I've read up on checking the cervix, so I know a little. You just stick your finger up there and feel for it. It will be hard, like the feel of your nose, and dry and pretty easy to reach before you ovulate. In the few days leading up to ovulation it will move up, so a little harder to reach, and it will be wet and soft, like the feel of your lips. This coincides with the changes in cervical mucus. The cervix will also open leading up to ovulation, and I have read that you will be able to put the tip of your finger into it. That is pretty much what I know. I am going to be temping, checking cm and cervix, and using an OPK. Keep me updated on how things are going! Out of curiosity, were you on the pill before this?

 

Kate - July 3

I got off the pill about 5 years ago(it made me sick). I'll have to try finding my cervix so I can figure out what it feels like. That's cool that we're on the exact same schedule! Hey if we're both lucky maybe we'll get to be pregnant together as well!!!

 

Gina - July 3

That would be funny stuff! But it would be nice to share pregnancy with someone... everyone has already gotten pregnant and had their babies, or otherwise they are going to wait for another 2 or 3 years. So I am alone in this quest, if I count the people around me. It's nice to have someone to go through it all with. Have you guys been trying long? We had a little scare in April where we thought I was, but it turned out I wasn't. It was actually my husband's idea, which blew me away because he has always been so adamate about waiting until he is a Captain (two more years from now). I was fine with the idea though, because my clock started ticking just after Thanksgiving last year. He really just wanted to wait until we found out our next a__signment, but that will be in just a couple days. He wants to wait a year if we are going overseas, but I don't really think we will be. I guess we just have to wait and see. Ok, we are going to go drive down the beach. Talk to you later, so glad to have a partner in this! :)

 

Kate - July 3

This is new to us as well. My clock is also ticking(I'm 28, going on 29). I'm in the same boat, most of my friends already have their kids, or are not trying for a few years. So it would be great to have someone to talk to about all the exciting experiences as they come!

 

Gina - July 3

People were setting off fireworks all over the beach, it was so pretty!! We parked our truck right in the middle of it all and watched. Yeah, I am definitely glad to have someone to talk to. Most of my friends can't believe we are trying, but they are all pretty much the same friends who couldn't believe I was getting married, because they were so far from that. I just really didn't want to have my kids into my late 30s. But I have a good feeling about this month for us, so my fingers are crossed and I am saying some prayers for us! Talk to you later, and HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!! :)

 

Kate - July 4

Gina, if we're on the same schedule...are we looking at an aproximate 'o day' of the 13th? I'm going to temp etc, I just wondered if I had my numbers correct! LOL

 

Gina - July 4

Morning Kate! Well, our O date depends on the normal length of our cycles. I usually have a 28 day cycle, although this last one was 30 days. For a 28 day, we would be looking to O on the 14th. Just to be sure, I am looking for O between the 14th and the 16th, since last month I Oed 2 days late. You always get your period exactly 14 days after O, it is just the time between your previous period and when you O that changes. This is why it helps to monitor everything else to get the exact day. Are you going to be using an OPK this month? This will be my first time trying it.

 

Kate - July 4

Good to know, I'm not using the OPK this month(but if I continue to have no luck maybe I'll look into it). WooHoo just a week to wait now! Of course then there's another 2 weeks! LOL

 

Gina - July 5

Hi Kate! So my husband and I get our next a__signment at 11am central time today. I am really anxious to see where we are going! My husband wants to go overseas, and I would like the opportunity, but then we would have to put off having a baby for about a year and a half. But, if there is a slot available he is going to take it. I guess I just have to wait and see. I will let you know!

 

Kate - July 5

Wow, it's amazing how everything in your life can change so suddenly. My boyfriend just decided we should split!!! What the hell? First he wants a baby, then it's all too fast for him! I think I'm in shock, and of course extremely upset. I just don't know what to say or think. Is he just freaking out?? It was his idea!!! OMG, men are crazy! Let me know if you are going on that a__signment...I wish you all the luck in the world...:(

 

Gina - July 5

Oh Kate, I am so sorry. Maybe it is all just scaring him a little and he doesn't know how to deal with it. My husband did the same sort of thing before we got married. We dated long distance for our entire relationship (Colorado-California). About 3 months before the wedding he calls me and says maybe we shouldn't get married yet and live together instead because we have never lived in the same city. I told him that was fine, we could call off the wedding (I really wasn't ok with that), but that I wasn't going to follow him wherever he went and live with him in that case. We ended up getting married. He just got a little scared. I really hope that is what is going on with your boyfriend. Did he say why? I really hope it works out, let me know. We aren't going to get our a__signment until tomorrow morning. I will let you know where we go.

 

Kate - July 5

He was very confusing, we spoke on the phone and since he was on his cell it was hard to have a clear conversation. I'm hoping to be able to sit down and discuss everything this evening. I'm really hoping he was just freaking out and panicked a bit. I hope that he isn't actually willing to throw everything away just because he got scared! So with any luck he'll come to his senses and realise that he is being a fool! If he wants to wait on the baby, I'm ok with that. But I think it would be ridiculous to throw away our entire relationship because he got scared! I'll keep you posted! Good luck with your a__signment(does that mean you guys are for sure going away for a year, or are you still waiting to find out?).Talk to you soon!

 

Gina - July 5

I hope everything works out for you. I will keep you in my prayers, and definitely keep me updated. I agree that it is silly to throw away your entire relationship because he got scared, especially since it was his idea! We are definitely moving somewhere, we just don't know where. My husband finished pilot training, and after this we go to Little Rock for about 6 months where he trains a little more. After that we go to our first permanent a__signment. That is the one we are waiting for. There are 7 active duty AF guys in his cla__s and they are ranked by grades. So, the base gets the 7 a__signments for the cla__s, then they start with the number one guy and each guy chooses the place he wants to go. The possible places are Germany, Japan, North Carolina, Texas, Little Rock and Arizona, but it really just depends on where the AF needs people. So we have no idea until tomorrow morning at 8am. I'll let you know what happens! Do you have AOL IM?

 

Kate - July 5

I have MSN messenger...do you have that?
