Christina, I like your "plan" for Jenna, and I agree. Man, it sure would be nice if DH and I were able to BD like that. We just aren't, for various reasons. By the way, you didn't answer my question How are you feeling, and what's the latest and greatest with your business? Also, I meant to ask you this before: Did you stop taking the Maca as soon as you found out you were pg? I was reading some info on it and was just curious as to your experience.
Hey Angela How are you feeling?
I still haven't decided whether or not to temp this cycle. Guess I'll play it by ear.
Thanks everyone for the welcome and for sympathizing about DDs nitemares. Whenever I ask her, she always says "dudes". And she knows what dudes are. It's slowly getting better but still unpredictable. Even now it puts me on edge most nties when we go to sleep
I did stop taking the Maca but not until about 4 weeks. I don't really think that it would cause anything but since they haven't done much research, well, I thought better safe than sorry. I did also stop taking the Royal Jelly for the same reason but also my pills contained Propolis and it has been shown to be a sensitive agent to the developing baby and could increase allergy/sensitivities.
As for how I'm feeling, I'm feeling great...and it sometimes has me peeved. I do wake up with a bit of a queasy tummy and my BB's are sore but otherwise, no m/s at all. Barely an appetite and have lost some weight (though this may change as the last 2 days I have been a bit hungrier). Still pretty tired by 7:00. But yeah, I feel pretty good. My u/s isn't until June 16 so I have a bit longer to wait to make sure things are going well.
So proud of your running and weight loss, Mary! Keep up the great work. How's work going?
My work is not very busy right now. I really cut down on orders once I found out I was preggo. I was so tired and really unmotivated. I have only been doing about 1 order a week. It's actually nice to not have that stress because DH has been working crazy hours. Plus it gives me time to do stuff I want to do!
As for the temping-I say DO IT to confirm O at least. It never hurts to know what your body is doing.
So, I spent all day at a friends house lounging by the pool drinking water and apple juice. I didn't go to the bathroom for seriously 10 hours. I just got home at 8:50 and ran into the bathroom and did an OPK -- blazing positive. I want to know if the time I took it mattered at all or the fact I held it. I am calling tomorrow to set up my IUI. I'm hoping it's still positive tomorrow. What do you guys think!?
The cycle I got my BFP I got a blazing positive at 6 pm and midnight on CD14, was still positive on CD 15, and then positive on CD 16 but only for the morning test. My temp confirmed O for CD17 after they had been negative for since CD16 afternoon tests.
I would definitely do the IUI on Wednesday. But also BD on Tuesday. I read the plan about taking a break to make sure the IUI boys are healthy but if DH has no issues, I wouldn't take the chance. I honestly think it's about timing but getting as many boys there as possible is better. So yeah, if DH doesn't have and issues, BD.
I'm having O pains right now. Going to BD tonight and get my IUI tomorrow. Hope I don't miss it....
And I just took another OPK... Even more positive than yesterday! Woo!
