Mary: dreams are crazy like that. I think the m/c thought is probably spot on as far as how your subconscious is interpreting that pregnancy. Sorry Sean's 3 year visit was a bit crazy. Brekke's is next month and I'd die of shock if she doesn't throw an out of body and refuse to cooperate. At least we're doing Dane's 1 year at the same time so the pedi can go back and forth as needed.
Virginia: m/s already? Crazy. Like everyone else has said and you already know, don't stress out about how dark the tests get. There are so many factors that can alter how dark the line gets which is why doctor's offices use blood tests not urine tests to make sure a pregnancy is progressing. Anyway, I'm still super excited for you!
Amanda: boo, I hope they get a suitable treatment figured out for your pain soon!!
Lauren: I know what you mean about dreading taking them to the dentist. Our dentist is a relative that DD sort of knows but I doubt she'll be too excited to let someone look in her mouth. :rolleyes:
AFM: Life has been crazy crazy since Dane started walking about a month ago and since they are still on opposite nap schedules, I'm always chasing someone around the house and never seem to have enough time to get anything done. On the positive side, they are just *starting* to play together a bit without me having to sit right there so eventually I guess I'll be able to keep my laundry caught up and my house somewhat clean again! ;) I stopped taking BCPs at the end of May and finally got a "real" AF at the beginning of this month. I wouldn't say we're TTC but not preventing either. We're talking about doing a 100 mile bike ride in September so I doubt we'll put any effort into TTC until after that although we'd like the next (aka: the LAST) one to be around that 2 year spacing as well so if I happen to get pg before then, that's fine too. On a side note, Dane's 1st b-day is in a week...seriously can't believe how fast that year went!
good luck with the opposing nap schedule. That's tough. I don't mind too much since I have an older one and it means I spend most of the day only chasing 2 around, but when you have 2 it makes it so much more exhausting. And good luck TTC! I hope it happens when you want it to.
AFM: still puzzled. I was super crampy yesterday afternoon and was convinced I was going to lost this one. But today not a sign of craps so far, temp went back up, cervix is still super closed, and when I took an OPK it was blazing +. Through yesterday I had only gotten almost + or barely + on them. No HPTs left in the house. DH and I have a plan. If I don't have m/s at 6 weeks (since it vanished 3-4 days ago) I'm going to try to get an u/s to figure out what's going on. Until then, we're waiting and seeing. I'm okay either way, I just wish I knew.
Virginia - How are you doing now? Any updates?
Ash - Yay for 2 mobile babies! It's SO cute watching them grow and learning to play together, hahaha.. I love it! Good luck with #3!
AFM - Someone smack me HARD if I decide to sign up for anymore overtime shifts. I decided to work next weekend for OT, and now I sorta regret it. I know it'll be sweet once I get the extra money, but blah... I've been working too many OT shifts lately, and I'm usually the first one to take time off when given the opportunity, hahah. I am just motivated to try to save to get the heck out of this house.
well, I got a darker FRER yesterday, so that's good. And over the weekend I suddenly started crying at the drop of a hat. I have definitely not had that happen before. And I had to resort to zofran this morning. All good. Except that my darn insurance only wants to cover a miniscule amount each month. Hopefully I'll be able to work something out because I can not go without it again.
Here are the lines:
I have two more. I plan to take one tomorrow (5w) and maybe the other a couple days later if I feel like it. One of my other friends on here posted a pic a while ago of a 5w2d FRER complete with her (high) beta number for the day... I kind of want to compare since I run high, too. :)
Virginia - Glad you're getting some reassurance! Hopefully everything will be smooth sailing for the next 225-ish days (per your ticker!)
AFM - Nothing too exciting here... I turn 29 on Thursday (ugh!), hahaha... Birthdays really aren't exciting once you're past the early-to-mid 20's, hahaha. Now I'm just like, OMG, this time next year I'll officially be in my 30's! Time for a mid-life crisis or menopause or something... :roll:
Ashley - wow 1 year already!! I'm jealous you guys are JLIH, i kinda wanna be TTC but just not the right time here.
Virginia - congrats on the BFP! that FRER looks awesome!
Mary - I'm in the "i dont give a crap about birthdays" club as well. I just tell DH to gimme the money and i buy what i really want ;)
Not much here. Kinda wanting another baby now, but its not good timing. I'd rather be back in Nebraska before we start trying for another, so its probably going to be 1.5 - 2 years before we try. Ah well. My desire to be near family for the next baby is higher than my urge to have a baby NOW. Plus the 2 years will give me time to lose weight, get my thyroid on track, and start paying off our debt.
Sandra - sorry you have to wait
Mary - I think your "mid-life crisis" should involve having another baby. ;) I have 29 coming up this year, too.
AFM: darker FRER again. This has been weird. my first few tests were way darker than I expected, then it plateaued, and now they're getting darker again. I wonder if I started out with twins or something. I'll probably never know.
Stop whining about being 29! I'm turning 31 on Sunday!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;) (j/k, whine away - I know I did at 29)
Virginia - glad the tests are getting nice and dark for you.
Sandra - GL getting your body in order before TTC'ing in a few years!
Mary - sorry about all the extra shifts, but yay extra money!
Ash - wow JLIH!? I still can't believe Dane is already so old! Time flies!
AFM - I threw my back out a few days ago, so I'm going to the chiropractor tomorrow. I guess I can't carry Xander around for an hour or more at a time anymore, eh? I carried him way too long on Saturday and that's what did it. It's definitely not muscular. I wish I could've gotten in earlier, but DH has the car and has appts, so I couldn't make it til tomorrow. Argh! The pain is making me super cranky, as if the heat weren't doing that already. haha. I want to be the nice fun mom I always was! Not this hormonal pregnant cranky thing!
Lauren - Sorry about your back. I hope it feels better soon! I forget... Are you going team green this time? I didn't realize you were 16+ weeks already... Time flies!
Sandra - I know how you feel... I got pregnant when we were living in IL and immediately started looking for houses closer to home. I just want my babies to have some family nearby. We're still not super-close, about 1.5-2 hours from our families, but we're hoping to move next year to a location about 35-45 minutes away from both families. It might make things a bit easier that way (at least we hope so). Actually, our TTC this time is sorta on hold because of the plans for moving. DH wants to TTC Jan 1, but honestly I think it would be better just to do it now or wait a long time, like years (which I don't prefer since we're not getting any younger).
Virginia - Glad the FRER's are getting darker!! Can't wait to start seeing some u/s's and such.
AFM - I've got the day off tomorrow, so we'll probably celebrate my birthday. I picked out a cake to make that doesn't have milk/eggs/nuts in it so Sean can have some. It's lemon cake with lemon icing, so it should be summery tasting also, yum. Now to see if DH will make it or if I'll end up making it myself, hahahah. ;) I ordered some new shoes from zappos which should be here today... Happy birthday to me!
Oh goodness... DH just walked by and told me we have a problem in the basement. I asked him if it was leaking and he said no, then I asked if it was worse and he just grunted and wouldn't tell me. I'm afraid I don't want to know. :(
Sandra - I couldn't imagine being away from family while taking care of a LO, I think your plan sounds good.
Virginia - Maybe it's a weird pregnancy cause it's a girl. Still sending you pink vibes.
Lauren - Hope you are feeling better soon.
Mary - Hope your birthday is lots of fun and that you can get DH to make the cake. I'd make you a cake (I love baking) but it wouldn't ship to Ohio well. :rofl:
Lots if July birthdays on here, I am 33 on the 27th, yup you are all just young pups :P My family always has a party in July we celebrate all the July birthdays together. My aunt hosted on the 14th it was lots of fun.
Just home today trying to tidy up after the hurricane (Natalie) that hit my living room, who'd have thought a 3 year old could be so messy? Gotta run make sure this gets done.
