Well I just discovered this this morning! How cool! Here's some info. about me and the fam. My name is Karin and dh is Gregory we've been married since 4/13/96. We were high school sweethearts. We have two sons- Joel who is 4 5/28/98 and Ethan who is 2 7/16/00. They are wonderful(spoken like any mom huh?!?) :toothy5: We are now TTC #3. perhaps!!This is our first month TTC. DH hasn't been wanting to try. I have. Last month AF was late and we thought I might be PG. That must have gotten Dh thinking b/c now he definatly wants to try. That was all I needed to hear :toothy9:
I am currently only on CD#3 so hopefully I am arming myself with enough info . I can't believe I didn't know any of this before!!!!! They should really teach you this stuff earlier!
That's about all the TTC stuff I can think of- here's some personal stuff-
I am 25 and Dh is too. We've been married for 6 years. We are both going to school and dh is working. I was a toddler teacher at a daycare but sadly :sad7: the daycare closed at the end of June. So now I am out of a job-Not that I mind at all staying home with the boys. I am going to school for graphic design. I was reading about the program and my interest totally got peaked. I love the arts. I love to sing. One of the classes I'm taking at school is a voice class. And I LOVE :love4: theater. IN fact our community theater is having auditions for 'Joeph and the Amazing technicolor dreamcoat' in October and I'm going to trying out. Joseph is my all time favorite show( followed closly by Titanic) . I'm nervous about it but who knows.
I feel so wierd about writing any postings- there are so many women here so are TTC#1 and here I am #3. Sometimes I feel guilty .I am so grateful and Thank God every day that I have my 2. We wern't using any BC(TMI) with my kids ,but it did take 2 trips to the DR. to get pg with them. Only a small problem - nothing like some of you here. Joel was a great pg. One short hospital overnight rapid heartbeat (w/me). Miserable labor 3 1/2 hours of pushing and had to have a c - section
Ethan ws not the model pregnancy. Every thing from high blood pressure to spotting at 8 weeks to pre- term labor. I was in the hospital 1ce or 2ce a week from 31 weeks with him. On bed rest too. We made it to 37 1/2 weeks though. This time a c-section no labor. Thank God!!!
Hopefully if I do get PG next time no problems would be nice!!!
That's about it - more later

I can't believe it's only CD3!!!
I found all this good info now I'm anxious to use it . AF usually last 5 to 6 days so perhaps it's half way over Good ridance! Hopefully for a long time :tongue1:
I'm just axious to see like when I o and stuff. To get my charting down - I was so mad this morning. I want to get into a good habit of temping and I got wokin' up so much last night I can't count it. Oh well , At least one time dh ended up wanting to fool around.

SO.. this is my second time trying to write this. I had it all done and then somthing happened with the supid server it said!!! :angry3:
Oh well, so today is CD#4 - I still woke up a lot last night. I must be over stressing this already because I told myself to sleep well because of the night before. I think I got 3 hours of con't sleep so hopefully today counts. I just really want to make it a habit and get into a good pattern. So, AF is really light today- Hopefully she's on her way out( for a long time )
I've been thinking lately. My sister, who is 8 years older than me she's almost 33 years old,has been married for just about 2 years and she is trying so hard to have a baby. She thinks she's not getting any younger. She's now taking fertility drugs and is soon to see her specialist again. Part of me doesn't want to get pregnant before her. It would break her heart :love9: She so badly wants to have kids. I already have two. I know I can't plan my life around hers but, I don't want to hurt her either. My sil is also (TTC#2). I think she'd feel bad too but not as bad.
I start school tomorrow and am super nervous!! I hate going into things I'm not familiar with! :confused2:
We spent the weekend looking for new furniture. We have hand-me-down living room furniture now. It needs an update. We're also going to get the boys some bunkbeds. We found the perfect ones for $150.00 cheaper than we thought!!! I love when that happens.
I guess that's it . A sink full of dishes is calling my name!!

So it is CD#5
Oh how slow this time is going!! Well, there was a problem again this morning! I finally got enough sleep Yeah I thought I put the thermometer in my mouth , waited and waited.......THen it occured to me there's a problem! I tried to see in the semi- dark so dh could still sleep let me tell you that was not easy . The beeping of the therm. got quieter and quieter. Crap!! So I got up dang it went into another room and looked at it. The darn thing had gone dead! I was SO angry It seems this is never going to go right!!!I got back into bed a woke up dh (on accident) then he was cranky too!
Oh well... hopefully I'll get this down I haven't evened O'd yet on my 1st cy and I'm down already!!
In other news I started school today! :confused3: I was so nervous! It went well though and I'm really excited!!
Hopefully I can go to the store tonight and get anew therm. or just replace the battery and this won't happen again!!!
More soon I'm sure-

Well, Today is CD#6
I did go and get a therm. yesterday- For $6.00 I didn't want to try and figure out how to replace the stupid battery! Well it worked wonderfully this morning - although my temp was almost a full degree lower then it was last time. Two days ago it was 97.6 and today it was 96.8- I hope that's normal -Look at me freaking out about everything!! :confused2:
I know I need to chill out!
I got an e-mail from my sister-in-law and she is two weeks late. She took a hpt last week and it was negative so she's not letting herself get her hopes up.(like she could not right?) No news on my sis. I don't even know of she went ot see her dr. yet.
Why don't our husband's understand our compulsive need to watch a baby story? I could watch it 100 times a day. He cannot possible understand why I would want to see someone else having a baby. I guess it is different for men than it is for women.
I guess I don't understand his need to watch law and order 100 times a day either!! :stressedout:
I logged on this morning and brought up the TTC 0-6m board and oh my gosh! I can't keep up with everyone al most the whole page was new and I just checked last night!! WOW! It took me like at least an hour to check 'em all out!
Guess that's all for now! :glasses10:

well, today is CY#8
I guess time is going huh?!?!? Yesterday I had school from 9a.m. to 9 p.m.! I was so tired by the time I got done. Lots of homework for next week. I honestly thought about I could just drop all my classes-- I was so overwhelmed yesterday. :confused2: Things look brighter today though!
I'm getting a little apprehensive about my temps. though. They have been 96.6 to 96.8 . I hope that's not low or anything.
Our minds are always worrying about something it seems.
Hope fully next week sometime the big O will happen I guess then it'll be worse because of the 2WW. oh well. Just a lot of waiting and patience in this game it seems.

Today is CD#9 ( I think!) It's hard to keep track-
Anyway it's early in the morning well relativly- and this is about the only time I can actually get onto this site. I spent I don't even know how long trying to open up pg.org last night. I was getting so frusterated . A lot of people must have had the same idea! :sign13:
Not too much news on the TTC front. Dh is really getting into this baby thing though. Now when he see's a baby it's ..Oh! how cute and gushy gushy. WHich makes me feel good. I realize yeah he really does want a baby. That's a good feeling for some reason. It gives me warm fuzzies! :love7:
This might be TMI but here's goes anyway.. Yesterday I realizes my cm was changing and I almost got into freak out mode. I knew it was too soon to be fertile fertile cm but I thought oh crap do I really know the difference?!?! What if I really miss the whole opportunity what if I really screw this whole thing up?!? I over react about oh everything. I need to chill out! :sleepy5:
Nothing else ..No plans for this big weekend. Both our families live across our state or in another state :sad7:
So no traveling for us.
Well I need to get my butt in gear and go grocery shopping so .....more soon!

Today is CD#10 Whoo hoo! Double digits now :happy7:
I am expecting to O sometime this week !! I guess dh is getting antsy he has really wanted to practice :laughing9: I'm not complaining.
Only if this TTC stuff didn't invlove so much waiting! Sometimes that can be so hard!
I have so much homework to do for school - I really need to get my butt off this computer and do it. Somehow that keeps not happening!
Tomorrow is the all day Baby Story Marathon! That makes me happy although I don't think DH will feel that way.
My temps. have chilled out a bit. They have been comsistantly 96.8 w one 96.6 . It's actually pretty neat to see. I can't wait until the whole chart is filled in.
The guilt is eating at me I better go do my homework -
