It's June! Who's still around? I know a lot of ladies are leaving for the TTC boards.
My little girl is sick with a cold so we were up all night last night. I'm very tired. It makes me want to not have another!
I'm still checking in! I'm so nervous this week, probably part of the reason why I feel so ill. I can see how the stress level can build quickly for women and couples who are TTC, I'm officially in the TWW (or 10 day wait in my case), and I'm a wreck.
That's too bad that your little girl is sick, hopefully it passes quickly!
Jessica- when are you testing?
Mel- Hope she feels better soon!
Anyone doing any fun summer plans?
PS- I am still around. I cant believe its June already! My little man will be 2 next month. How does that happen?!?!?! Nothing is new here. I am kinda boring lately!
Thanks Jessica and Sara! She's doing a little better, at least she ate some food today and plenty of wet diapers so that's good!
Jessica - yeah, that stress is incredible isn't it! I actually really dislike TTC because it's too much anticipation!
Sara - glad someone else is here with me! Feels like everyone on the board is already JLIH or TTC!
We just booked a hotel in the Philly area so we can go to Sesame Place, the Philadelphia Zoo and Camden Aquarium in July! Very much looking forward to that!
DS's 3rd birthday party is in less than 2 weeks now. I have the planning done and most of the decorations made or purchased. We are doing a construction theme.
Yeah I am not going to TTC yet. still having a hard time bringing up the convo with DH.
AFM -No real summer plans so to speak. I took the week of tommys birthday off in July- but partly cuz my MIL and SIL will be here and I do not want them watching tommy without me- cuz yes they wuld assume they could watch him while we are at work. I think we might do the LA Zoo and the LB Aquarium that week. Hoping to get a few camping trips in but we havent planned anything yet.
I just got a bunch of decorations for Tommys birthday. We are doing the theme: Red, White and Two! So since its after the 4th I got alot of Red white and blue items. Do you have a theme going?
I'm still here, still trying to decide if i should just go for it on ttc this month or not. I saw a super adorable newborn today and i swear it made me ovulate. Seriously I have had snow white opks then suddently got a faint line this afternoon, so i am probably right on for predicted o date, it seems so late compared to before and i am concerned I may have too short a luteal phase now, or maybe just crazy cycles because I am still breastfeeding.
Sara - it's a Construction theme for the party. he's really into dump trucks, excavators and the like! The red, white and two theme sounds great!
Wendy - how long do you think your LP is? I'm still BFing and wasn't planning on stopping just to TTC. Maybe I should get OPKs?
Sara - I think I'll test this Sunday if AF doesn't show first. Looking back at my chart, I'd be super surprised if we missed O, so I'm hopeful, but trying to remind myself that it isn't always that simple.
Sounds like you ladies have some wonderful birthday plans in the mix! I love the themes!
We did construction last year for his 1st. i hit up the $1 section at Target they had tons of red, white and blue things.
Good luck Jessica! Sunday isnt very far away!!! Hope u caught that eggy!
Wendy I tested tonight on my OPK and faint line as well and two days ago it was white as can be. But again using the OPKs to avoid.
I think I am in a funk. Today I put on my head phones and kept to myself at work most of the day. I internalizing alot of things and need to snap out of it. But on a good note DS STTN all night last night. it was so nice. I feel that means tonight he will be back to waking up. lol!
I am not sure, I went back to a snow white opk tonight, but it may be because it is an old one and likely out of date. No temp shifts, though I also don't get unbroken sleep so it's likely temping won't be accurate for me. I am not weaning just to ttc, DS is way too much of a booby boy and even though i said I would go until age two I may go longer if he still wants it. I still have a few months to see.
We will not be doing parties every year, though I am going to do the train cake for this year, so seeing as his birthday is a Saturday and the cake is huge I am going to see if some of his day care friends want to go to a local park for a play, feeding the ducks and cake. We may also take him to the zoo, or possibly to the circus in the next couple of weeks as an early birthday treat
