    Lauren - boo to your temp drop! 9 dpo would be early for AF, right? Maybe it's implantation?

    Mary - I hope Cal gets some teeth soon. Oliver is working on his molars now. It's no fun.

    Katie - glad you had fun!

    Oliver's doing better. He perked up quickly. We had a crazy weekend. B-day party for a friend's 2 girls at a petting farm Saturday and a family expedition all day yesterday. whew. While we were out yesterday I saw way too many pregnant women (One had her husband taking maternity photos so I offered to take a few). Definitely set off the baby fever. Spring is pretty good at doing that. But... 6 months isn't that long. I can wait.

    Katie, glad Rory is feeling better. I haven't heard of Newsies either and I thought I knew every Disney movie!! Glad you had a fun weekend with your mom and sister!

    Mary, sorry about the crummy sleep. Boooo! GL finding the motivation to get ready for work. If you find any, send some my way!

    Virginia, so glad Oliver is feeling better! OMG how did you already see my temp? I literally just put it in before coming here! HAHAHA! Anyway, yeah big temp drop - BUT 1) I was up for a minute before I took it because DH woke me out of a dead sleep saying we needed to get Xander, and I went on autopilot and went into his room before going "crap!" and going back to take my temp (but they say that usually raises your temp, so, um...) AND 2) I had the exact. same. thing. happen when I got pregnant with Xander. Huge temp drop at 10dpo (I'm 9/10dpo right now - chart says 9, but I'm more like 10 because I O'd late at night and technically O'd the day before it says I did). Anyway, I had the same thing happen before, then my temp skyrocketed and I was pregnant. This hasn't happened to me in the last 3 cycles, so I'm actually looking at it as a really good thing. Usually my temp doesn't drop til CD2 after AF has already started.

    So yeah, I'm still in baby! I think I'll test tomorrow unless I get some spotting or something today. If that happens I'll hold off until I get AF or it's Friday. Whichever comes first. I've been having a lot of cramping. Sometimes it feels like AF-type cramping and other times it feels completely different, more like pulling. But then it'll feel like AF cramping again. So I don't know. No other symptoms at this point besides feeling completely unhinged. I've been such a mega B the last few days. I'm snapping constantly and just not in a good mood. BUT I can get in that mood before AF too, so I can't really look at it as a pregnancy symptom. By this point with Xander I had had some nausea, sensitivity to the smell of beef and curry, super sore breasts, etc. None of that this time. But that doesn't mean anything since every pregnancy is different. I'm just trying not to think about it much and will take whatever comes.

    Katie - Glad you enjoyed your trip to NY. I went to the Lion King production in Toronto when Dana was about 6 and it was wonderful, lots of parents with kids, plenty of fun.

    Mary - Sorry to hear about the rough sleep, hope Calvin's teeth come through and you get a peaceful night one day soon.

    Virginia - Your weekend sounds busy but fun.

    Lauren - Yeah pregnancy symptoms can be sooo different, I know my pregnancies were drastically different from the get go.

    *AFM*

    Dana's hockey season is finally over which is a relief cause the coach is an @$$. They had 3 guarenteed games this weekend for the Provincials (2 Friday, 1 Saturday), our understanding was that he would play Dana in goal for the first game and then put the other goalie in for the second, it makes sense so no one is fatigued for a game. Anyway he decided to play the other goalie for both games on Friday, the girl tied the first game and lost the second (probably cause she was tired from the morning game). when DH went to ask the coach why, so he could explain to Dana the reason behind her not playing the coach got snappy with him. Unfortunately on Saturday DH brought us to the wrong rink (20 minutes from where we should have been), and the game ended up starting early so Dana was late, she did get to play half the game and did alright but her team was so outplayed that they lost that final game. Though the actual hockey stuff was crappy Dana did get to hang out with her team mates, she enjoyed that time so it wasn't a total loss.

    Tryouts for next years team start next weekend, though after the tryouts are over we are free for the summer.

    Nat's been moody lately screaming and taking fits on a regular basis, no real reason, guess its just the age/phase.

    At work today really should start getting some stuff done.

    Lauren - sounds like it's an awesome sign! I've never had an implantation dip. All your other symptoms sound good, too. I sometimes temp a little after getting up and it doesn't really make much difference for me.

    Congrats again! Super excited for you. Are you hoping for a boy or a girl? I can send blue vibes your way, but if you want pink vibes I'll steer clear.

    AFM: we had Oliver's 1 year photos taken this morning. I almost didn't do it because we just did family pics last month. But... I did it for the others so I figured I had to. He was awesome. Almost every photo the woman took was wonderful. It was tough to narrow them down. Of course, after spending a long time choosing his outfit I mostly order pictures taken in just his cloth diaper.

    Just realized I'll probably O right around Oliver's birthday... just like I did want Alex turned one and I got pregnant within a day of his birthday. Still not ready.

    Lauren - Again Congrats! Look to me for pink vibes.

    Virginia - I am sure those 1 year pics will be well worth it down the line. Funny that you picked a lot of unclothed pics. Better be careful around Oliver's birthday if you aren't ready to be preggo again.

    Virginia - Love the new siggy pic. It cracks me up, hahaha. Glad the photo shoot went well.

    Lauren - Congrats again!!!

    Amanda - Will Dana have a different coach next hockey season? Seems like you had nothing but problems with this one.

    AFM - Exhausted. It has been a hell week at work. I'm supposed to be in my 9-day week, but thank goodness I signed up like a month ago for a voluntary day off this Friday. So that will split it into two 4's with a day off in the middle. SO much better. I swear I need it for my mental health.

    Enjoy your mental health day, Mary! I think I need a few of those. DH has been working late nights most of the time for the past 3 weeks. And we were busy all Easter weekend and all this past weekend. I haven't had a decent chance to catch my breath in almost a month! Thankfully, it's 7:15 and the two big boys are asleep. Oliver's crying in his crib, though. He usually just goes down, but not tonight. Of course.

    ETA: Lauren - I asked Raymond if you were going to have a boy or a girl. He said girl. His record for guessing is great... as long as you take into account that he has been 100% wrong with every guess he's made.

    Mary - Sorry to hear your week has been rough, glad to hear it's not 9 days though.

    Virginia - Hope oliver settled down so that you got some R&R tonight.

    *AFM*

    Dana will have a different coach next year and if he does end up coaching Bantam we won't put her on that team. He's a highschool teacher too and if in grade 9 she ends up with him we will withdrawl her from his class, yes thats how much I dislike the guy.

    After Nat was in bed I just mucked about on the internet taking it easy. I'll watch Game of Thrones and then head to bed soon.
