Weekly Check In: April 22nd-28th

Hi Ladies! How was everyone's weekend?? :) Mine was pretty busy, as I helped a friend move into her new house all day Saturday and Sunday! 


 


Today I am 10DPO and I find the second part of the TWW the hardest! I want to POAS every morning leading up until the day AF is due!... I have a lot of the dollar tree store tests so I'll probably start testing tomorrow for the heck of it! ;) ...Although, for whatever reason, I have a feeling this wasn't our month..... =/


***P.S. Thank you to those who answered my BBT question last week!! :)


 


How is everyone else doing this cycle? :)

Hello! How sweet of you to spend all weekend helping your friend, June:) I had a lovely weekend. I went shopping and out to lunch with my Grandma on Saturday, and Sunday DH and I went to church and then down to the reservoir to feed the ducks. We're such old people. Lol.

As far as TTC goes, I'm on CD18, 4 DPO, and counting down the days until test time. Lol. Everything was perfect timing wise (those Clearblue Advanced OPKs are great), so all that's left to do is wait!

Hiya!!  CD 5 and just waiting things out.  


@ June ~ it isn't over till it's over, so FX.  If not, hope you at least had fun with all your April BD ;-)  How nice of you to help your friend out!


@ Littlebit ~ FX for you too!  haha, I love it when we act like an old married couple.  It's surprisingly fun!


Here we are in Brugge, Belgium.

@June & Littlebit FX for you both! I'll be checking in often!


@Athena, welcome back, I had wondered where you were off too! Sounds like an incredible last hurrah. Good luck with your specialist appointments, hoping it isn't too painful.


I am CD7 and just finished my first AF since coming off BC. As you all know it was right on time. Overall she wasn't too much of a b****. A few horrible cramps but mostly a light/med flow. FX AF continues this way next month.


DHs parents and siblings are really getting on us about having a kid. I had a Tupperware party yesterday and they wouldn't let up! Mostly they do it in fun, but eh...


Also, just met with our Aflec rep at work. We don't get the best benefits for maternity so I wanted to make sure I covered all my bases. Are any of you looking into something like that? I guess once I sign up, it has to be 10 months before I have the baby to be covered. So if I sign up it has to be ASAP. Bringing home the packet tonight to talk to DH.

@June - good luck!! I know the TWW is the hardest for me too - FX!


@littlebit - I love that I have someone who is so close to me cycle wise!! Hang in there girly... this is our month!! ;)


@Athena - oh my gosh it looks like you had SUCH an amazing vaca (and definitely is all I need to see that I want to go ahead with our cruise ;)) So glad you're back, and hope that your treatments go well and that you aren't in too much pain!


@Nicole - I hear you about the family thing... we get it all day every day :S And I have heard amazing things about Aflac, but I haven't met with anyone about it. If you have any info about it that you could PM me, that would be awesome!! :) My friend who is due in August signed up for it before she got PG and was telling me some of the benefits... I would love to enroll, but if this is my month it may be too late :P


 


I'm CD19 - but 2 DPO since I always O a little later. I'm trying to stay relaxed and not stress too much during the TWW. Quick question for anyone - Even though I'm 2 DPO I'm having these little flutter/cramps in my uterus area every now and then today... is that normal? Did I truly not O, and I'm Oing today?? This feels like my normal little O cramps, but I'm done Oing... has anyone heard of that?? or experienced it??


I'm trying to take it easy... and now I want to start planning our Cruise (see previous post)!!!!  I will also be continuing my spring cleaning this week as well, so that should take my mind off of it as well :) Hope you all have a great week! and sorry for writing a book :S

June - fingers crossed!


littlebit - hoping the rest of your 2ww flies by!


athena - your vacay sounds amazing!  good luck on your back treatment!


nicole - the kid comments are so upsetting.  I always wonder why on earth it hasn't crossed their mind that we ARE trying!!  ugh!


kristen - we are going on a cruise next month and we are doing an IUI this month.  We were originally going to wait but decided to just go for it.  I think I cruise line will let you go up until 20 weeks. 


 


AFM, I'm on CD7 on clomid until Wednesday and have BW and US that day as well.  I'm on the lowest dose of clomid since I had a few canceled cycles in the past.  My CD3 BW was excellent...FSH and e2 was normal which surprised me since two days before we got the news that my AMH had plummeted.  Feeling super optimistic this month!

@ Athena: your trip sounds amazing. DH and I want to go to Europe so badly. Hopefully when he is done with school we can afford it

@ Nicole: I sogned up for AFLAC a few months before ttc. I just got the supplemental disability so if I do get prego it will make up for the income I would lose being on disability.

I am currently on CD 31 and am 12dpo on my first cycle of clomid. Gave in and tested a few times, all bfn, and my temps started droping well below my cover line about 4 days ago so i'm sure i'm out this month. Just waiting for AF to get started on the next round. FX for you girls waiting to test

@june, TWW sucks! It's probably a good thing I can't find cheapo tests here (no dollar tree!), because I would probably become a POAS addict!


@littlebit, DH and I always joke that we are an old married couple now. :)


@athena, sounds like you guys had an awesome trip!


@Nicole, glad everything is going well! Kid comments definitely get a little annoying/awkward when you are TTC or getting ready to TTC. I have had so many people ask me when we are planning on having kids lately, and I never know what to say! I don't want to lie about TTC, but I don't really think our sex/personal life is any of their business. LOL


@Kristen, maybe implantation? FX for all you ladies!


 


So, it looks like I finally O'd on CD20! I'm on CD35 now, and my temps have been high for 14 days now. I'm planning on POAS tomorrow if AF hasn't come (had to go buy some tests today!), so FX that this is our month! I'm really hoping it is, since DH is going to Alberta for a few months starting next week, so TTC will be pretty much impossible until early July.

Hi girls! I just wanted to chime in on AFLAC. My company doesn't offer any paid maternity leave so I signed up for the short term disability as well as the hospital plan. For my normal vaginal delivery and hospital stay I collected $4100. The hospital plan is great!!! It equals what you get for disability. Because of that I was able to take off almost 4 months!

@Athena: Wow! Your vacation sounds amazing! Glad you and DH had such a wonderful time together:)


@Nicole: Thanks for keeping your FX for us! I hate nosey people, especially when it comes to TTC. I've found if I say "Well, we're trying, but these things can take time..." and look really sad while I say it, people ususally leave it alone. And feel bad for asking.


@Kristen: Here's to staying stress free during our 2WW! Have a blast planning your cruise. Maybe that distraction is just what you need:) I REALLY hope you're right, and this is our month! FX! And as far as the cramps/fluttering/twinges, I have them too, usually starting with O and all throughout my LP. Although this cycle it only lasted for the first few days. I'm not really sure what might cause that...


@October: So glad your levels are good! Good luck this month:)


@Kwood: Sorry this wasn't your month:( Baby dust for next month!


@Ayla: Oh my goodness, you are so patient! Your high temps sound so promising! I will be stalking this board like none other today to find out your results--so excited for you, FX!!!

Glad to here that everyone is doing well!


Athena- your trip looks fun!!! I hope you guys had a blast.


Nicole- I tell my friends all the time that asking people when they are going to get pregnant is the most insensitive thing to ask someone bc you dont know their struggles with MC or getting pregnant. 


Kristin- I hope this is your month...FX and baby dust...


Ayla- FX...Praying for your BFP!!!!!


Kwood- Sorry hun!n FX for this cycle!!!


October-FX on this round of Clomid


Littlebit- FX...

@littlebit: Sounds just like how we would spend our Sunday! :) Sending you lots of baby dust for this cycle!!! Try and keep yourself as busy as possible...the TWW is so brutal! lol


@athena: Wow, what a memorable trip!! I have never been to Europe and I would love to go one of these days!! Glad you are back on the boards!! :)


@countrygirl: Oh I so hope this is your month!!!! Did you test today!!? :) ...I'll be stalking the boards now..;)


@kwood: :( I know how disappointing AF's arrival can be.....Best of luck to you for next month!! **HUG**


@kristen: I have gotten cramps after I have already O'ed...not sure why, but it is definitely possible! 2DPO would be too early for implantation..but don't hold me to that comment! ;) How exciting.....planning for your trip!! You will have an amazing time!! Ahhh, spring cleaning! You totally reminded me of that! I need to make a list and get started myself! ...Sounds like you have a few things to keep your mind busy during the anxious TWW!!


@october: Glad to hear your levels came back good! :) Let us know how your appointment tomorrow goes!! Good luck hun!


@june1bride: 11DPO is still early!! You are not out yet! Hang in there!! GL!!!!! :)


 


AFM: 11DPO today and I ended up testing yesterday with my dollartree tests that I had and BFN...then again this morning and I think I might have a start of a BFP.....It's soo faint, but it's definitely there. It showed up within the timeframe and has a pink tinge color to it. These tests are pretty sensitive to HCG...25miu I think, but FRER's are even less sensitive and I wish I had a stash of those, but I don't. So I will just have to wait until tomorrow morning to test again. Hopefully the line gets darker! :)

@ CountryGirl ~ I live in AB!!  What province do you live in?  FX ... did you POAS yet?


@ junebride2be ~ I see that faint line.  Eeek! :-)  Are you going to buy some FRER and do a digi to see 'Pregnant'?

@June, I see it!!! Have you told DH?


 


Also update on Aflac--the rep was super confusing but everyone who offered advice on here helped clear up some things. I brought the packet home to DH who is going to look it over and research it more. @Kristin I'll PM you once I have a good handle on it. I'm pretty sure I'm signing up next week from the little I do know.

Thanks lovelies! I can't wait to take another test tomorrow morning...the picture looks better than in real person; as it's a squinter for me! I have a digital test that I am saving for and four more dollar tree tests that I'll be using. I'll post another picture tomorrow morning! :)


P.S. I have not told DH yet....I am waiting until the line gets darker or I use my digital. =) I want to surprise him...I haven't thought about how :/...but I will keep you ladies posted! He knows AF is supposed to arrive this weekend, so I know he'll be asking!
