@ Claire - sorry to hear there was another BFP, but it sounds like you're in good hands and they're trying to get you an answer. Huge kudos for you trying to get answers so early into TTC as well (it's been less than a year, right?). I heard yesterday on the news that "they" (didn't catch who "they" were, but it sounded like doctors or the medical field in general) won't consider you as having a problem until it's been min 2 years of trying naturally. I just thought that was ridiculous.
Everyone knows my news of the week: AF arriving. I'm still super happy about this, but know there is still a lot of other potential hurdles out there. I'm learning early on that it is literally taking every day as it comes.
My bloat is gone and my uterus/ovaries are no longer being brutally stabbed (that's how my cramps felt). So I feel "skinny" again and pain free.
Since we're not actively TTC just yet, I am taking advantage of today's beautiful weather (up north in Canada) of 12c (about 50f) and we're bbq-ing smokies for dinner. I've read they're one of the things that's not recommended, or at least recommended with great caution (thoroughly cooked, as in steaming hot), while PG so I'm trying to enjoy them now. I'll probably cut them out while PG due to the sodium etc (I do buy organic all beef ones, but still). I also LOVE brie, and that's a definite NO while PG, so I need to get me some of that this weekend. I plan on melting it in our brie baker, then serving it on baguette with chili jelly (which I also suspect would be a NO during PG due to sodium). I really do eat healthy, and in moderation, but I'm trying to enjoy these while I can :-)
Sorry to hear Claire, let us know how your appointment goes, FX for you!
Athena, you're making my mouth water!
I ordered my prenatals and should have them waiting for me at home after yoga. I'll start those tomorrow. My OBGYN appointment is coming up on the 26th and I swear she's going to think I'm nuts with the list of questions I have for her!
@ Nicole - haha, I'm making myself hungry!
What kind of questions do you have? Just being nosey, because I'm sure I haven't thought of everything :-)
Not much going on with me, I am on CD8 and will start doing the OPKs in two or three days...we are BDing every other day until I get (hopefully) a positive OPK. Last two cycles I O'd on CD14 so that is basically when I expect it to happen this time too.
I'm on CD30. No sign of AF yet, but I'm thinking it'll probably show up sometime in the next day or two. :S I still don't think I ovulated, so not really expecting a BFP this month. DH doesn't want to TTC this cycle since he doesn't want a Christmas baby, so hopefully April will be our month.
Great advice Claire, I hoping she isn't put off because I like her!
@Athena, You know I really should write them down when I'm thinking of them. Because now that I am on the spot, my mind is blank. Mostly they are qusetions that we all discuss here. I want to ask her thoughts on charting/temping/OPK. I want to see if there are other suppliments I should be taking (prenatals, probiotics, DHA, oh MY!). I'll also probably ask about working out too. I'm sure more will come up before the 26th!
Now question for you ladies: I've noticed lot's of ladied talk about BDing every other day. Why every other?
Well.. on CD18 today, which is when I o'ed last month.. so of course we're BD'ing every day this week and will hope for the best. I'm sure it won't happen on our first try, but it's fun in the meantime! haha
Aha thank you all, it makes perfect sense. I wanted to be sure that BDing too much wasn't harmful too. So many things to consider!
@Claire, my DH would totally say that!
So BFN for me. :( FX that April is our month!
Im 6DPO because I changed my setting on FF and it changed my O day to Saturday which is cool with me because we BD Wednesday, 2xFriday and Saturday...I think we covered my Fertile period we shall see next week.
I have been been sleepy like crazy, urination more frequent, twinges, cramps all the above.. I really do feel that we caught the eggy this month but who know until next week...lol
AF finally appeared this morning (CD35). I've finally convinced DH to at least consider TTC this month (really, being born around Christmas can't be too bad!), so I'm hoping and praying he changes his mind. :)
FX for lots of BFPs this month!
