    Default Keeping The Faith

    I thought that I was going to go crazy because I couldn't figure out why I couldn't put anything new in my journal.
    (I'm a little slow but I figured it out)
    Well I was trying to put in yesturday that I had started my Atkins diet again and I am doing great I haven't had one carb in a week as of today. I have two more weeks to go. I haven't weighed myself yet but I will on Sunday when we go to my parents house for Easter. I am hoping to loose 15 to 20 lbs before I O and that is still about a little over 2 weeks away so this should work fine. I am on last day of AF THANK GOD!!! I think DH and I need to start practicing again as soon as we can. I was really happy to hear that a few of our woman got BFP this month. All I have to say to them is MERRY CHRISTMAS . Well thats it for now, I will write more later.

    I am 25 and I have one ds and he is everthing to me. I had a real easy time getting pg with him but now my dh and I are trying for #2 and I'm having a hard time, it has been 8 months and nothing. I have a real problem with thinking I'm pg every month and then being REALLY let down when nothing happens. The really hard thing to deal w/ is the fact that the woman in my family get pg very very easy and that they usually get pg when they don't want to be. I want to be now and I am having truble. I am a chrisian and I have faith every month that this is it and then nothing. I know that I'm still young and that I have alot of time but I also had an idea in my head of how I wanted to have my kids and I don't think I can handle the thought that there is something wrong with me. I also have 40 day cycles and that makes it hard because I have to waite a long time to find out if I am and I don't handle stress very well. Then I get scared of being stressed. I have issues!!!!!!!! BIG TIME!!!!!
    I am 17 days into this cycle and am a little more then one week away from o and my dh and I are going to bd starting on cd22 and will do so every other day until one day after o. Thats how we did it with our ds. I really hope I have good news in a few weeks.

    Well today is going to be a good day. I don't have to think about TTC. I am going to a garden fair with my ds, mother and grandmother. I love spring I started charting at the begining of this cycle that I'm in now and I'm hoping that I will ahve beginners luck. I have a problem with stressing myself out over TTC because I have 40 day cycles so I have to waite longer then most women to even o, then I have to waite forever to even find out if I'm preg. It is really hard. Over the last few months I have read alot about bc and the bad things it can do to your body and it scares me because I have been on it since I was 18 for female reasons. My dh and I agree that after our next baby we will try NFP and I know that I am responsable enough to do it and do it right and that if for any reason I get preg while I'm doing it it must be Gods will. I know that I will follow it perfect so if it happens it happens. My dh is very suppotive of me wanting to try this after we have a baby and that just makes me love him more. Now it is just getting me preg that we are having trubke with. My cycles are getting longer so I don't know when I o. When I went off the pill last June they were 28 like clockwork, then in Nov. they were 31 lcw, then in Jan. they turned to 40 and thats were I am now. My dh doesn't want t know when I'm ovulating because he doesn't want to feel like he is working, so come time I'll just jump him and that will be that. We try to start about one week before o and bd everyother day until three days after so that way we know the are there on time for the party. I just hope my girl show up this month and I don't meen AF. Well I have to go .

    CD 19
    To most women, CD19 would be past o but in my case it is still a week or so away. I find it really easy now to get my mind off of it with everthing that is going on over seas. I find myself crying alot about all the people that I hear are dying or getting hurt. I don't cry because I don't believe what is going on over there is wrong but because I am a mother and a wife and a sister and I wish that I could comfort the families. I think that the more this goes on over there the more that that phsyco will show his true colors. I just hope that we can get it taken care of soon so they can cme home. I also worry about all my friends that are over there. This makes me really think about how I want to raise my children and the kind of things that I want to teach them. I believe in God and my country and I know that sounds chezzy but I don't care. My son and all other children will be tought to love and respect all people no matter what their rase, religon on political views. I don't care what color person my children want to marry as long as they are loving people that treat my child as if they were the only person on this earth that could make them happy. I know that all mothers want that for their there kids but I hope that I can raise my children to be strong, smart and confident peole that have alot to give other peole. I know that not everything will go the way I want but I also know that the way I raise my child has alot to do with how things will be when when they are adults and with their own children. I think part of the reason that we have so many problems is that parents don't understand that they are the examples to their children. They determine how their children will turn out. Now I'm not saying that if they grow up and go nuts and do bad things it is all their fault what I'm saying is that they teach them how to deal with life when they are very little and most peole don't even realise it. When your child is growing up and even before they can talk they are watching the way we are and learning from that. I know one thing that my husband and I did wrong with our ds,we always figured that it wouldn't hurt him when he was really little if we argued in fron of him but I am starting to see things now tha the is almost 2 that are things that I know he got from his father and me tha ti really wish I could take back. The only thing that I can do now is try to change the way he reacts to certin things. I really hope that I don't screw him up. I also hope that if we ever get blessed with a girl, that I can raise her to be a strong woman with wonderful outlook on everthing and I really hope that they NEVER go through the things that I did. well thats it for today. I hope that I don't offend anyone who reads this but it is my journal and only my opinion.

    The start of another day and I have two more days until my dh and I will do the bd. I am feeling weird though, I have been haveing very small pains in my stomach. I have an acid reflux ( hope I spelled that right) and have had ulcers in the past but this if it is one is really small. It all started after I had my ds. He is my first and after a hard preg I was so happy to go home with him. Two days after we wwent home I had to take him back to the hospital, he ha really bad jaundis (hope I spelled that right if not I'm sure you can figure it out). I know that isn't real bad but when it's your first and you just want to be home after a three day stay in the hospital and 8 months of problems. I also have a really hard time with stress. I stress myself out all the time about everything. Like getting preg, because it happened so easy last time and we have been trying for 8 months now and nothing, I think that there is something wrong with me now.I love my dh he doesn't know how to handle me when I get weird.
    I have been getting through this waite for o better this month then in other ones though with little stress about TTC because of all you wonderful woman that tell your stories on here. Inow that I really don't have much to get upset about because I have a child, that is true but I'm not upset about that, I'm upset because you think your whole life that when you want a family that it is going to be so easy, Get married, have a baby or two and boom thats it. Then when it happens and you have nothing but one problem after another and you don't have someong to talk to that really will understand, God Bless our DH but they have no clue what goes through our heads. I love that I come on here and I can read about other women feeling the same way I do. You are all a sorce of strength for me, and you keep me from going crazy from having to waite. THANK YOU ALL. To all of you wonderful women that are trying to have your first bundle, Don't loose faith , God can do ANYTHING and He knows our hearts and what we want. I will pray that all you want to be first time mommy's all get blessed with a healthy baby very soon. I want to see +++++++++++++++ across the board. When you stop believing thats when it wont happen. I'm not saying you can't get upset but don't let it beat you. We are all alot stronger then we may think. Woman deal with things that men would never be able to handle. I am REALLY pulling for all of you GL and God Bless all of you.
    One last little thing.
    I think that that Moore guy on the Oscars last night is a big jerk and should be kicked out of the US. I think it is funny that people didn't protest like this before the war they waited until it started when their efforts were fruitless. Now that we are there I just hope that we can geet this done fast and with VERY little death.
    I SUPPORT OUR PRESIDENT AND OUR TROOPS!!!!!!
    but that is just my opinion.

    Well the start of another day of waiting.All you woman that have short cycles are luckey. I have to waite 27 to 30 days just to o, then 2 wks or so to do an HPT. I am in a good mood today though. I don't know why. I can make myself happy.
    I started a OPK yesturday and did another today and nothing really. They were neg. but had fainte lines. I am planning to bd with Dh starting tomarrow and we will do it every other day until April 1. I guess I can't miss that way.I hope. It is really nice here the last few days and I have flowers in my garden already. I love spring!!! If that doesn't get my juices flowwing I don't know what will . I think it is good for me keeping this, it has really helped me with my stress level. I look forward everyday to reading all the other posts and seeing if anyone had looked at mine.
    Well thats it for now, I might write more tonight depending how things go today.
    GL and God Bless ourtroops and all of the woman trying to have a baby.

    I have been really wanting to get into doing my photography again. I love having things I can do to get my mind off of TTC and all the stress of it. I am doing my friends wedding in sept. and my grandparents want their picts done for the family, but what I really want to get into is pregnancy photo's. I think they would be the most fun for me. I think that it is good for woman to have beautiful pictures taken of them when they don't feel so beautiful. I wouldn't let anyone take my picture when I was preg until I was 35 weeks and then I was forced. I am glad I have them now becuse I had my ds 3 days latter. I would love to be able to start doing that. I enjoy it so much that I wouldn't charge for any thing to start but prossesing and film. This way I can get my name and pictures out there. There are so many cool things that you can do to make a woman feel beautiful. I Don't do digital. I HATE digital. I like 35mm. I miss taking pictures. My dh is very supportive of me getting back into doing my pictures. I don't have all the equipment but I know I can make due with what I do have.
    Back to TTC.
    I noticed a change in my CM and I can't waite to do my opk tomarrow to see if I'm getting close to o. I think I'm going to start the bd tonight because I am horny (TMI SORRY). I really don't think that it going to hurt a day early. It will still get thet job done, I hope. Dh doesn't like it when I talk about "trying" to have a baby because he feels like it is a job and that doesn't make JUNIOR very happy, so I don't talk to him about it and when it happens then he feels like it was a surprise. I am trying to think of a cute way to let dh know IF I get preg. I am really thinking pos. tonight. I must be tired .
    Well thats it tonight. I notice that I talk alot even when I write .

    CD 22:
    Yes it says 22, and I'm still a few days away from O. I did my OPK this morning and there is a very light line. This is driving me up the wall.My temp dropped yesturday and again today. I thought I read it somewere that it can drop before o. I hope that in 4 days it shoots up. I should o on CD 27 or 28. I'm charting everything this cycle so I should know exactly when I o. Temp, Cm, OPK, CP, Brests. I know myself better then I ever hoped to. Dh and I didn't BD last night but we do start tonight, I hope he isn't too tired. I have also rea everything there is about how to get preg and it's funny how had it is for 2 normal healthy people to get preg, it makes you wonder why all these little girls can get preg from kissing someone. The woman in my family are all like that, except for my aunt, but thats because she had some of her thyriod removed because she had cancer. Now she is VERY over weight and oesn't get her period. She was blessed with one dd and she misscarried 8 times. It took alot of drugs and crying for her to have her dd. She also had morning sickness the whole 9 mths all day every day, it was REALLY REALLY bad. Then she had 3 days of labor. My aunt isn't the nicest person when it comes to dealing with adults but she loves her dd and if she could she would have a ton more.
    Well thats it for now.
