    It's a new month! How in the world is it May already? It's a busy month for us. Lots of birthdays, mother's day, memorial day, and BBQs. Yay!

    So this week is just flying by. I'm working a half day from home because we have a repair guy coming to fix our plumbing. I'm going to be working at my own pace today I also have a dentist appointment during the lunch hour and will go up to the office for the last 2 hours of the day.

    This weekend we have a hotel date because one of our friends gave us a gift card for a super nice hotel in downtown. Because my last cycle was a day or two longer than it usually is, my ovulation date for this month was moved back. FF shows it being May 8th and another app I have shows it being May 9th. So if we BD on May 5th and 6th, do you think we have a chance?

    I know I could buy opk's but #1) they are expensive, and #2) I think I will have a hard time convincing DH to BD during the week after a weekend full of BD'ing. I'd hate to get a positive on Tuesday and have DH refuse to DTD.

    I would say go for it...especially on the 6th...gives it a chance to catch the eggy! Good luck!!!!!


    Not much going on with me. Just working this week. I had to go to the doctor this AM for a blood draw. My triglycerides have been misbehaving and I am taking meds for it. I want to see if they are better so I can quit taking them since they are a Class C drug and not good if we want to try to make another baby!!!

    Not right away, I am not sure I want to be so huge in summer. I'm not sure when we will start TTC, but I also think I am going to keep it on the quiet and keep telling everyone we are waiting for medical reasons because everyone keeps telling me I need to give Ronin a sibling already. I think I will order some OPK's as Ronin doesn't sleep through the night so I never get enough sleep to chart accuratly and I need to work on night weaning him and get him sleeping in his own bed. I was thinking last night how exhauseted I already am all the time with a toddler who has tons of energy, is often sick and doesn't sleep, plus working full time and not having much help from hubby and wondering how I will cope with first trimester triredness with all that as well.

    Eliann - worth a try! Have you considered getting OPKs online? You can find them on Amazon (wondfo brand) for about 20 cents each. That's where I get mine.

    Kristi - GL with your bloodwork.

    Wendy - GL with the night weaning. Seriously, make DH do it. My kids would never have night weaned if I had gone in with them. As soon as they see/hear/smell me they want milk. Yeah, it's tough being pregnant with a little kid around. But you can do it.

    AFM: feeling some serious hesitation about TTC again anytime soon. Life is crazy enough with 3 little boys. Maybe it was the ER visit this weekend (LO had croup. scary.) or maybe that I have a cold and am exhausted. I don't know.

    Hubby doesn't do anything kid related really, it's all me. He likes to sleep and will not wake to Ronin at night unless he is screaming his head off. He won't wake every 2 hours to settle him through the night weaning process especially as it can take forever to settle him, it took me 2 hours to get him to sleep initially last night.

    He refuses to DTD? I think mine has only turned it down when he's been sick or something. I guess they're all different, huh?

    seriously? Tell your DH he needs to get his act together, especially if you both work! That's crazy.

    Ha, yeah he refuses on occasion. Especially weeks where he has worked 50+ hours. I don't feel like doing it either all the time. Is that bad? I was commenting to a friend of mine that I lurk on some people's FF charts and see that they DTD like everyday and sometimes twice a day. How in the world does that happen? Sheesh...I wish. Working so much and taking these tests, there is little time for pleasure. We squeeze it in when we can. Hopefully I can finish my tests this year, just in time for a new baby that keeps me up all night

    Last year, my co-worker came into work after taking her 4 hour architecture exam and then stayed with us and worked and until 1am and then popped out a baby like 6 hours later. Now that's hardcore. I have a feeling it will happen the same way for me.

    I was finishing up work when I was having contractions on a Sunday Morning with Olivia - crazy, but it kept my mind off the fact that she was coming! LOL

    I'm sorry Wendy. That's rough. Olivia doesn't STTN yet either, but she's usually up once and then we just co-sleep most nights after that. I get more sleep that way!

    Been there with the hesitation! Anytime it's a rough weekend with the kids I ask myself if I'm insane to have a 3rd.

    I never used opk's, but it depends on how badly you want to be pregnant this month vs. in the next couple months IYKWIM. I always just took my temps because it was free! I'm cheap like that! LOL

    YAY for May ladies!

    Eliann- I bought OPKs off babywishes.org for cheap, although might check out Virginias suggestion for cheaper. I think the 6th you have a chance of catching that eggie! Sounds like a fun weekend!

    Wendy- My DH doesnt do a whole lot and is the most grumpy jerk in MOTN if he gets up with tommy. And thats only recent. Took 20months just to offer. I feel the frustration on it. And we still dont STTN - although last night DS did, it rocked

    Virginia, you do NFP using OPKs right? Do you just have a certain window you test for O on or do you use them the whole cycle? I was thinking of getting off BC and going the OPK NFP route.

    AFM - Tommy has a nasty diaper rash due to teething and a cold ( drool and snot ) JOY! And DH now has the germies we had earlier this week. And really, a sick DH is like having 2 sick kids. So dramatic. He texted me he has a fever of 100.2. Umm really? LOL! I got a promotion officially yesterday which was nice. I really need ideas for mothers day for anyone interested in giving up thoughts for Mothers day- Mom and MIL! hehe
