POAS Party?

Anyone up for a POAS party this week? LOL Lately my "parties" have been pretty dead!

Anyone testing this week, or have any other TTC items they would like to chat about? Or just general chat; what does everyone have planned for the weekend?

I am starting my testing tomorrow. I'll be 8dpo, so I'm not entirely counting on seeing a damn thing, lol.

Your chart looks great Jordan. Good luck! Smile

My weekend was slow and boring.

How are you doing Alissa? Pregnancy all going smoothly?

Thanks guys!

BFN, as suspected. lol. I'm not overly distraught. I couldn't ask for more from my chart, so I just keep waiting. I HATE WAITINGGGGGGGGGG!!! lol

Alissa, I am so pleased for you for your pregnancy. Sending lots of good vibes.

Mara, you trying again soon? How is Z? I have been off these boards for so long, I have missed out on so much!!!

Susan...you know I'm stalking you! Hoping we can share Oct.

Thanks Jordan! We're very happy and excited. Smile

Yes, definitely don't be too bummed about an 8 dpo BFN. I don't think I've ever gotten a BFP sooner than 10-11 dpo, and your chart looks perfect (is that an implantation dip at 5 dpo? ;)) so hopefully you're just waiting to get your good news.

We're good, Jordan! I'm barely on the boards anymore either. Z is growing like a machine- I just took him in today, and he's 29 inches tall! I think Beni was 29 in at like 18 mos! Z is 7.5! Anyway, he loves eating, is cruising furniture, climbing stairs (if you let him), and doing all kinds of other very active things. Getting into anything you let him. Very happy baby in general. So we're good.

Beni is a pint sized terrorist. Smile Doing our best to contain her. She is taking being a toddler very seriously. Not my favorite age.

How are your girls? How's wee Fiona?

I'll join in towards the end of the week... if you want OPKs.

any tips for a cold around O time? Anyone know if there are any decongestants which won't dry up CM? I'd love some suggestions.

Kristi and Pico good luck!!! And yes, OPKs are welcome. Smile

Pico - I don't know of any good decongestants that don't dry up CM, but have you thought about doing other remedies, like a neti pot? I know that it's kind of gross, but I find that when I'm stuffy or have a runny nose I can usually do the neti pot and get some relief, at least for a little while. That wouldn't dry you up. Honey seems to work okay for coughing, or hot tea with honey and lemon for a sore throat. Maybe some of those more natural "home remedies" could help without hindering TTC? Anyway, good luck!

I use nasal spray, since it generally doesn't affect the whole body. Is that something you'd be up for?

Sorry about the cold.

TTC while sick is the pits! When we conceived my DD2, my hubby was laying in bed for a week with a double EI, strep throat and on heavy duty ABX. I basically took serious advantage of him in his most vulnerable state. lol.

Good to hear you're keeping busy Mara. Yeah having 2 is a trip! Fiona is great!! Still teeny but she's a pistol. I have never heard a child at this age speak as well as she does. It's hilarious.

I POAS this morning, but have packed the camera back in the bag. The line was super faint, I think af will still be arriving while I'm on holidays. If I have a sticky bean I will post pictures when I come back

Oh, good luck! I hope it's sticky. Enjoy your trip.

Nasal spry is a good idea. I'll give it a try. It's amazing the things we'll work through when TTC. I'd rather TTC while sick than be in labor while sick, though. given the choice. I've done that too and that is really unpleasant.
