    Well, I'm on CD 11 and hopefully will be O'ing soon... the only problem is:

    DH is in ARIZONA until Friday! UGH!! We BD on Sunday and Monday (he left early Tuesday) and we will BD when he gets back until I can confirm either no O or O... hopefully O!!

    I had a rough weekend...my SIL told me on Friday and that her and her DBF were going to start trying *sigh* I just know she will get her BFP before me, but, after a long talk with DH and a long talk with myself... I'm okay now I'm very happy for her and I know she will be a great mom! I will just be happy that I will have another niece/nephew to spoil rotten

    I guess the good thing to come of all this at DH is really on board now with the whole baby thing... he was only half-heartedly into it the past year or so... I mean we haven't been preventing for about 2 years and I've only been charting for about a year, but I mean how did he expect to get pregnant when we'd only BD like once around the time I was supposed to be O'ing!! But now he is sooo on the bandwagon This past month was great with the BDing- just wish my body would cooperate!!!

    I'm gonna give it another couple months and then I will go to the Doc to see what the next step is... possible Clomid.. hopefully I can take that... or go to see an RE. In the meantime I'm still trying to lose some weight, which hasn't gone so well so far, but I'm still trying

    So, I guess I'm really only on Cycle 2 of super duper trying, right??? That should make me feel better... hee hee, yeah right!

    Hopefully I will get that BFP before August

    Okay it's CD16 and no O yet I think I might be O'ing today which is GREAT, but we shall see what happens.

    I also called my Doctor to see about what I need to do to get a prescription for Clomid as it seems I am not ovulating correctly. I checked the American Porphyria Foundation and it is okay for me to take YEAH! I was sooo afraid I wouldn't be able to take it because of the porphyria. Now I'm just waiting for the call to see what needs to be done.

    I'm EXHAUSTED today... my eyes are all droopy and I totally can't keep them open! UGH! I'm also incredibly thirsty. I've had 2 bottles of water so far and about ready to start my 3rd... and I'm still soooo thirsty!

    I'm praying for O today... we have great timing if I O today woo hoo!

    I'm also going to start checking my cervical position... I figure it can't hurt to have one more fertility sign being charted, right?? Also, going to talk to Corey about getting some Ovulation tests and possibly some Pre-seed. *sigh* we'll see... I told him to do some research on Clomid and make sure he'll be able to put up with me... ha ha ha ha!!! I don't care... I want a BABY!!!!

    Okay, just heard from nurse... they can't prescribe Clomid... I would need to see an RE. She's talking with doctor and will call me back with information... ie- do I need to come in for a physical or whatever.

    Will update when I get more information.

    Okay so I have an appt. with Dr. Hughes at Lowell General (yeah for being like 2 mins down the road) for May 31st at 6:30am... yes, I said 6:30 am! He only sees fertility patients between 6-7am!!! UGH! Good thing it's not far! I'm so not a morning person!

    They are sending me information that I have to read/fill-out by the appt. I also have printed my FF charts so I can bring them with me

    So, I was talking to my brother today and told him what was going on... he thinks I'm crazy to want a child so badly. He's just in a different place because he has a daughter!! *sigh* Oh, and yesterday I was talking to my mom and told her about how I was going to make an appt... she flat out told me that I should not be thinking about having a baby until I lose some weight... WTF?!?!?!?! I'm freaking 30 years old, yes, I'm a little fat, but there are women out there chunkier than me (my mother included when she had my brother and I) that have kids *sigh* Seriously... I'm not going to wait any longer to have a kid! Especially because I want more than 1... after 35, I mean, well, we all know the odds and statistics *sigh* Aggravating...

    Okay, enough venting already. I'm just excited I have the appointment and I didn't have to wait MONTHS for it Just a few short weeks... yeah, who am I kidding... it's gonna be torture waiting that long

    My MIL says Dr. Hughes is the man to see re: fertility, so I guess that's a good thing

    I guess I have to go get some work done now. I can't wait for DH to get home so I can jump him... even though I think I already ovulated, but whatever

    so I'm really liking my chart this month I actually O'd and my temps are somewhat stable and going up

    No symptoms...my boobs usually hurt after O until I get AF, but the hurt disappeared on Saturday and it's been gone ever since!!! I'm soooo tire today, but that could be because I worked until 11pm last night Still went to bed at my normal time, but.... well, I guess we shall wait and see!!!

    Still liking my temps they are doing a funky stair stepping pattern!! woo hoo... every 2 days it goes up! I'm hoping it goes up again tomorrow!!

    I think I might test this afternoon... I know, I know... it's really early, but I have such a POAS addiction... if I do it today, then I should be able to hold out until the weekend or early next week.

    So... temp down yesterday and today it's back up there!!! woo hoo!!!! I'm doing a happy dance!!!

    I tested today, but BFN... I think I "might" see a line, but who am I kidding... I always see lines hee hee!!

    If I just implanted yesterday then it is a bit early to be testing... but I'll be testing for the next couple of days... oh sugar, Corey is home on the weekends though... hmm... well, I think he's working Sunday so I can test then!!! One day wait won't kill me, right??

    My day time temps have been really good too! Normally they are high 97's... this week they've been mid 98!!! Today it was 98.7!! I know I shouldn't get too excited, but I am!!

    Even if it's not a BFP this month, I still have my appt. at the end of the month to look forward to!!

    Okay, I'm off to work... I've been such a procrastinator today!

    sooo... yesterday I tested and had faint positives on a Dollar Tree test and on a FRER. Tested today- NADA on FRER and a big fat NOT PREGNANT on a digital! AND... the witch showed about 15 minutes ago!! fun fun.

    But, I'm actually in a really good/positive mood! I had a 26 day cycle last cycle and this cycle it was 30... I think my cycles are finally straightening out after 1.5 years... I think a lot of it had to do with living with the in-laws (ie- living under someone else's roof and living in the basement 24/7). But since we moved to our own place, my cycles have been better YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!

    And... I have my appt. next Thursday with the fertility specialist I'm still hoping Cheri is right and August is it for conceive month... really don't want it to be the birth month cause then I'd have to wait until like Dec/January to conceive... YIKES! I don't want to wait that long!!!!

    Okay, what I thought was the witch... wasn't. It just happened once when I went to the bathroom... a gob of creamy CM with some red

    But I'm pretty sure she is on the way as she always starts with some spotting!! I just want her to get here already!!!!

    Today I woke up with heartburn really bad.. UGH! sucky!
