I am still wavering if having four children is the right thing to do right now. I think about waiting but I don't want my last two children to be too far apart in age. So if I am going to do this, I am going to do this now. My last BCP is on friday so we will see what happens. If I do start bleeding between periods, then I am going to have to go back on bcp to get me regulated again which means I will have to wait. I will let fate decide since I can't.
Angie is having her baby via c-section in exactly 1 hour and a half and when I even think about it I start tearing up. I am so happy for her! I will go up to the hospital to see her tomorrow if she is up to it. This would be the hospital that I would have my 4th in as opposed to the Vic that the other 3 were born in. I am glad-it will be different. Almost like the first time...almost...
I am dying here!! I want to know what she had, and how she and the baby is!!! I guess I will be posting it tomorrow. Friday can't come soon enough--last bcp pill YIPEE!!!! I will be getting my bbt ready and my FF chart... I am nervous..
I also plan on taking cranberry, folic acid, vitex, vitamin B6, green tea, and Robitessin. Enough pills and things you think?? All to have a baby sheesh!
Welcome to my journal to all who reads.. also if anyone wants to add something to just me here, I don't mind similar experiences or advice I welcome, after all you are all a part of my journey.
I get to go up to the hospital to meet Angie's little girl today YAY! Everyone is doing great, I can't wait to see her!
On another note, I take my LAST BCP TODAY!!! By Tuesday, I should be on CD 1. I have also decided to start my saliva/ferning test as well, just to confirm my O time on my chart. Can't hurt.
I never thought I would be excited to hear from !
Thought I would copy this here- one of the ladies posted a thread asking what we woud do differently if we could so I thought mine was worth putting here too:
When I was in labor with my son exactly 2 years and 5 days ago, I was in alot of pain (like most are) but I was progressing really good. I asked for and got an epidural and as soon as I got it, my contractions all but stopped and I had a loonnng labor after that. My son ended up stressed and inhaled meconium. Because of that he was intubated and ended up in another hospital for a week in NICU.
I attribute the whole ordeal to me getting the epidural. I did not get an epidural with my earlier children and I had great labors. This one was a nightmare and I should have just endured the pain and there probably would have been a better outcome. I just heard how nice it was to go through a "pain free" labor so I thought I would try it with my 3rd. It wasn't so pain free after all, maybe the labor was, but the events following were very emotionally painful for me. Needless to say, he's healthy now, but I sure have that as a regret..
Come on I want to get started!!!! I think she's coming because I feel kinda crampy and I think there is a tiny bit of brown when I wiped. I got a response for that gender selection website that sent some food ideas that I should be eating to try for a girl- acidity favors girls- so juices, pineapple, vinegar, soya, peanuts, coffee, lemon, yogurt. Its worth a shot I guess!!!
I took my temps for the heck of it over the weekend and here are the results:
So hopefully she is on her way... for a short visit...
Well my temps look like they are on the way down which is a good sign. My AF is pretty heavy though, I just hope it dies down in a reasonable amount of time.
I am trying hard not to try so hard because I really think that was half my problem with my last try at concieving. I was so stressed and pressured myself to much to get that bfp that it probably contributed to all those bfn's. If it happens, it happens-i am trying so hard to keep that attitude.
SHE'S GONE, SHE'S GONE!!! The witch is gone!!! I did a little saliva test yesterday and there was a little bit of ferning so hopefully I am on my way to O'ing. My temps seem a little Higher though then when I o'd in past months 97.6 as opposed to 97.3's I have gotten in the past. Not sure if that is important or not. Maybe I don't have as much estrogen production or something...
Well my temp dropped to 97.3 which seems a little more normal to me. I have also had a slide with ferning yesterday night (partial) so that is good news to me.
I know how much everyone on the board hates the 2ww but personally I love it. I love that high I get when I think that I may be carrying a little life in me and I feel good during that time. Even if I am not pregnant I have my little world for 2 weeks and I think its a good thing!!
