Hello lovelies!!! :) How are you all doing this week?
DH and I decided that since we are going to be able to TTC in May, we are going to spend the next few months finishing our house redecorating. I'd love to have everything painted before we get our BFP. I'd also love new flooring in that time, but I won't press my luck ;)
This weekend I was out at Half Price Books picking up an old cookbook for FIL and I was able to pick up Taking Charge of Your Fertility, What to Expect Before Your Expecting, and What to Expect When Your Expecting for $2 earch! I'm all set for baby reading for the moment haha
Wishing all of you ladies that can TTC this month TONS of babydust!!!
Today I'm CD21, 7DPO. I ovulated nice and early this month, so hopefully my LP will be plenty long enough for a little bean to get good and stuck. Lol. Just one more week until I can test! Seems like forever, though...
@june1bride, that's interesting...were you aiming for a certain season or month to have the baby in? FX for you!
@missjess, good luck with your house! DH and I have been doing the same thing. Tons of work/a huge mess, but super rewarding when you get to sit back and admire all the prettiness. Lol. And happy reading!
Today is day 27 since being off BCP, so I'm kind of curious if I'll get AF. I wasn't thinking about it, but now that it's almost been a month it's on my mind a bit more. Since we're preparing to TTC things aren't too intense, but I hear you on house work! We developed our basement last year, and last night we had a contractor over to give us a quote on ripping out our old deck and building a fancy new one. When I do get preggo I just want to worry about baby stuff, and not house stuff :-)
june1bride It could be a nice early Christmas present :-)
missjess485 Those are good books. Nutrition for a Healthy Pregnancy is also a good read.
littlebit07 Good luck!
Well My bday is in December and I hated it when i was young bc it was sooooo cold( I live in Chicago), And then the whole school system thing with making Children wait the whole next year after they turn 5 to start school here in Chicago. I think they need to change that to Halfway in the year..like Maybe Feb. Not Sept. 2nd. And soooo Many things are in December for us, we are going to be broke...lol...Our Ann. 12/12/10, my bday 12/18 and then Christmas....
But I will take any month to have my Lil Rainbow baby!!!
I'm on CD16 of our first TTC cycle. My temps have been weird this month (up and down constantly), so I've been mainly focusing on charting CM. Based on CM only, I think I O'd on CD13, possibly CD14. I'm not holding my breath, since I know it usually takes longer than one month, but this two-week wait is going to seem like forever! LOL DH wants to skip March if I don't get pregnant this cycle (he isn't really liking the idea of a Christmas baby), but he's going to be in Alberta from mid-April (but might wait until May) until August (I'll be joining him once school is out in June) for work, so we'll see.
I just realized I never posted :P haha assumed I did when I made the thread ;)
@june1bride - FX and baby dust that this is our month lady!! :)
@missjess - I hear you!! That's what I've been doing the last few months TTC to take my mind off of things I've been redecorating as well :)
@littlebit - you can do it!! :) I know, I hate the wait too...
@athena - happy thoughts your way that your AF comes soon and your cycles start to regulate!! :)
@Countrygirl - YES the TWW is the worst!! it will happen, don't get too stressed!! :) We are on cycle #7 so don't be too upset if it doesn't happen right away sweetie (although I would be SOO happy for you if it only took one cycle!!)
Well, I'm on CD28... Saturday 3/1/13 is our test date... but I'm not really too optimistic that this month is the month :( I'm leaning more toward March being our month BUT if it doesn't happen this month that's Ok. DH and I have been on and off sick for the last 2 1/2 weeks and with the cold/flu going around and all the meds I'm taking I really don't think it's going to happen this month. I would hate that next cycle is #8... but it will happen when God thinks it's right!!
@june1bride: wow, December is a busy month for you guys! It's so sweet that you don't even mind, though, and are just excited to have your little peanut. Good luck and lots of baby dust:)
@ayla: Good luck on your first cycle! The 2WW is awful, isn't it? I hope you get your positive quickly.
@kristen: FX that you being sick had no effect on TTC, and you'll start March out right with a BFP!
@dennys: my temps are always low like yours. I had my highest temp this cycle (8DPO) at 97.70. I asked my doctor about it, and he actually chuckled. He said it's normal for some women, and shouldn't have any affect on fertility, so that's good news! Looks like we'll be testing about the same time--FX for BFPs!!
