    Default March Chat Thread

    So... it's March.

    Katie - GL with your trip. Hope you can talk your boss out of the long one.

    Amanda - GL with DH's trip. I'm sure you'll do fine.

    Lauren - I hope being sick just delayed O and you'll start feeling fertile soon.

    Mary - hope AF shows soon.

    Hi, everyone else!

    AFM: I'm 99% sure I Oed. I usually O overnight and the next morning the first thing Raymond said to me was "Mommy, is there a new baby in your tummy?" I said no, but he said "I think there is". If the kid is right I'm hiring him out as a psychic. I think the odds are low, but if my LP tops 10 days I might have to break out the HPTs. O came sooner after our getaway than I would have liked. I'd rather not join the "Oops, I'm due right around Thanksgiving" club (no offense, Karen and Katie!) especially since I'm pretty sure I'd be due on my birthday.

    ETA: I take it back, I wouldn't be due on my birthday, I'd be due on Thanksgiving. Good thing it's very unlikely (not matter what Raymond says.) I filled in the last week of my chart. I disagree with O day (I think March 1st). I'm intrigued to see when AF shows.



    I've had a weird O pattern since Alex was born. I get 2 days of +OPK, then O pain overnight. The next day my temp stays low or sometimes drops, then the next day (2dpo?) it starts to rise.

    Well, today is CD30 for me. I'm getting antsy for AF, but in all honesty, I think maybe it's an anno cycle. I need to look back and see when I was complaining of pain and then found EWCM. I think it was about 13 days ago, because I know it was like my last day or two of work and I've been on vacation for 12 days as of today (back to work tomorrow, sad!). So anyway, just waiting around for something.. Or nothing..

    ETA: And now I'm nauseated. Probably just something I ate. We really were 99% careful this cycle. You know how that 1% always seems to happen though, lol..

    ETA x 2: Okay, DH and I got paranoid, so I got some sticks and POAS = Negative. Whew!

    Yeah, I guess it is March, eh? haha

    Mary, glad you guys got the result you wanted. It's so easy to get paranoid!

    Virginia, it'll be interesting to see what happens. heh.

    AFM, okay so my cervix is finally starting to open and I'm getting CM. Sheesh, took long enough!!!! Hopefully I'll O in the next few days! EEK I hope so!!

    I started potting training Xander yesterday. It's not going great, but we're going to get through it. I have him in training pants that are essentially underwear with a tiny bit of padding for little leaks, so when he has an accident 90% of the pee ends up on the floor. That's fine, it's what I want because I want him to feel wet and be uncomfortable - but it's not fun. haha. So far we've only gotten a little bit of pee in the potty, but I'm hoping he'll catch on quick! Stay tuned...

    Yay March! I am SOOO ready for spring!

    Mary - Yay for a BFN! Haha, don't get to say that often, eh?

    Virginia - I agree, when do you find the time to DTD with three kids?!

    Lauren - Good luck on the PT front! I'm considering tackling it soon, I just haven't committed to anything yet! Owen pees a few times a day on the potty (if you ask him), and he knows how to "hold" it and stuff, so I'm thinking he's ready, but I'm not sure. I read an article that said research shows the BEST time to PT is 27-31 months. So I don't know. We'll see! I hope it goes fast for you!

    Katie - Wow, you're right. It's been about a year since your BFP? Insane how time flies, right?

    AFM - I'm still around! I'm just a total slacker!! Haha. Owen had croup the end of last week, which meant lots of sleepless nights. DH caught it the same day (croup is just a nasty cold in adults), so that was tons of fun. I thought I'd avoided it, and then ended up with SEVERE sinus pressure that kept me up most of Monday and Tuesday nights. By Wednesday, I was a complete wreck! DH ended up taking a half-day on Thursday so I could sleep, and since then I've felt a ton better. Thank god, too, because Owen's party with our families was this weekend! I'm still sick, but definitely on the mend.

    Also, we had Owen's two year check last week. He's 25.6 lbs. (lost a whole pound from Fri-Wed from not eating when he was sick!) and 34" tall. I can't believe how big he is! Anyhow, I expressed concern over his lack of speech AGAIN, so our ped gave me an Early Intervention pamphlet. I called that day, and am just waiting on a call-back to set up his eval in the house. Of course, I googled Autism crap again and had myself completely freaking out that he was autistic because he's not putting two-word phrases together (and that is on the scary 'get checked out now!' checklist). Of course, he has no other signs of autism, but I'm freaking out anyhow!

    We were on vacation without the boys for a few nights! Normally that would be impossible.

    Jen - glad you made it through the croup. I hope you figure the speech out. I had autism concerns with Raymond (more behavior than speech) and he turned out just fine. I hope Owen is just a regular late talker.`

    Mary - yay for a BFN.

    Lauren - yay for EWCM! I hope the PTing goes well.

    AFM: we moved Oliver out of our room Saturday (finally, huh?) and in with the other boys. It's a pretty small room, but they fit. The first night was rough with Oliver, but last night all 3 boys slept all night!

    Jen - Good luck with the speech thing. I'll be hoping for something easily treated (maybe an ear issue or something?) and nothing scary like autism. Or shoot, maybe nothing is wrong at all... They all develop in their own time. KUP.

    Lauren - Good luck with PTing. I'm having a hard time getting into it too much here. I think just because it's SO freaking tedious. He wants to just go and play in the bathroom for like a half hour every time you take him to potty... He wants to waste toilet paper, flush the toilet 20 times, squeeze out 3 drops of pee 20 different times. And... He STILL does not tell us before he needs to go. He has started telling us pretty much immediately after, so I think we're making slow progress, but PTing sucks. I know it will be SO worth it though, once he's finally trained.

    AFM - AF ended up coming later last night. I would've been okay with a BFP, but the timing is not perfect. We're just now getting into the thick of saving up money and making plans to hopefully build our next house, so it just wouldn't be the most convenient time. I've actually started job hunting in the area where we want to move, but unfortunately, all I can find are listings for part-time. I'll just keep looking.. I've got time. I wish I could just stay with my current company at a different location, but they don't need anyone in the area either. Grrrr... Maybe something will open up.

    Ugh, I have the post-vacation, back-to-work depression right now. I have to leave here in about 15 minutes and I dread it. Also, in order to make my 7 days of vacation into 12 days off work, I took 3 unpaid days, so I'm going to have a significantly smaller paycheck to look forward to. It was worth it, don't get me wrong... But we recently got more serious about saving money now that building a house seems like a real possibility... So I just need to get past that crappy paycheck and then buckle down!

    Mary - Sounds like your plans are falling in place, hope a job turns up for you when you need it.

    Lauren - Good luck with the potty training, I remember Virginoia had some great tips for training boys.

    Jen - I am sure Owen is fine, there are other things that can lead to speech problems, some minor. My cousin was delayed because fluids kept building in his ears and he couldn't hear, they gave him tubes and he started talking. He's still not talking fluently for his age (5) but I think it might be a parenting issue.

    Virginia - Glad to hear that Oliver's transition to the room with the boys went quick.

    We had Dana's birthday party on the weekend, she really enjoyed it. I can't believe she's a teenager in just a few days!

    Natalie got her "report card" from the Montessori School, she seems to be doing well as long as she keeps focused/doesn't get bored, so much like her dad in that way. I'm glad she's doing well and enjoying herself there.

    I'm just working today, had a pretty productive morning, hoping for a productive afternoon.
