    Default Trying for first baby

    Well, I am going to attempt to copy/paste my journal over here to the new boards. I'm not sure how it is going to work, and I am guessing the dates will now be all wrong, but I still want to have all of my journal in one place, so here it goes. It may take me a few days to finish doing this, though!

    O.K. Today was my first day to start charting, so I want to enter my results here every day. That way I can look back at them anytime. This cylce will mark the 6th month of TTC. Hopefully we'll be lucky. I have read about a lot of people on here buying OPKs on ebay, so I'm bidding today to see if I can get a good deal on a bunch of them. I tried them one month. I went through all 7 of them and never got a +, so I think I need to test a lot more often to catch it. Hopefully I'll win this bid and will receive the 20 sticks before AF leaves and I can test every day. My Dr. told me that there is a possibility that I ovulate while I am on my period. I hope that is not the case. I have tracked my last 13 cycles, and they are not regular. They have ranged from 22 - 29 days. However, most of them were about 23-27, so I think I'm getting closer to being regular. O.K. Here go my charting numbers...

    CD#- 2
    Temp.- 97.1
    AF- Here
    Symptoms- Cramps

    My cramps were very bad yesterday. I ended up taking a total of 2,400 mg of Ibuprofen and it really didn't help too much. I slept with a thermapatch on my stomach last night and I think that helped me. I still have some cramps today, but they are not near as bad so far.

    My mom called and left a message last night while I was at school. My dad's brother died. I am feeling stessed about what to do. I want to go to the funeral, but it is far away, would be very expensive, and I can't miss my Psychology final tomorrow morning. I am really leaning toward not going at this point. Nobody is expecting me to be there at this point. They all understand. I just really wish I could be with me dad during this time. I know this is hard on him. My uncle has a wife and 3 children. All of the children are younger than me. I just can't imagine losing my dad. My cousin thinks that she is getting engaged in December. Now she won't have her dad to walk her down the aisle. That is so sad! Anyway, I am very tired today from all the crying last night. Right before I went to sleep, I picked up the Kopapeli(Mexican Fertility god) that my uncle made for me. We are Christains, so we don't believe in that, but he gave to us as a little joke. The whole family is ready for us to have a baby. I laughed when he gave it to me and told him I would keep it on our headboard, which is what I do. I said to my husband, "he wanted us to have a baby". It's so sad that he won't be here when we finally do get pregnant. I know none of this really has anything to do with TTC, but I feel better writing about it. I guess I just feel sad today because of his death.

    I got an email this morning saying that my OPKs shipped, so I hope to get them in the next 3 days or so. I'll be really interested to see if I get a positive on them this month.

    Well, that's it for now I guess. I'm glad it's Friday.

    CD#- 4
    Temp.- 97.7

    I woke up this morning feeling like I might have a cold. My throat is scratchy and I don't feel good overall.

    CD#- 5
    Temp.- 97.1
    AF- leaving, almost gone
    Symptoms- none
    Meds.- Aleve Cold and Sinus

    I still feel like I have a cold off and on. I'll feel fine, then I'll feel bad. The Aleve helped, but me feel spacey.

    CD#- 6
    Temp.- 96.9
    AF- Gone!
    Symptoms- None
    Meds.- None so far

    I still feel a little sick. I don't know if this is a cold or allergies or what. I don't feel really bad, just not like "normal". My temp was really low this morning. I'm not sure why. Maybe the Aleve I took last night? But the ibuprofen didn't affect temps. I don't know. We'll see what happens with it tomorrow.

    Well, I'm really hoping that my OPKs come in the mail today. I would really like to start testing everyday now. If I don't get a positive this month, I'm going to order more and I'm going to test everyday including throughout my period. I was hoping they would get here on Saturday, but they didn't and yesterday was a holiday so no mail. So, hopefully when I get home today they will be there and I can start testing tomorrow morning.

    My Uncle's funeral was yesterday morning. I haven't heard from the family yet. My dad called after the visitation/veiwing on Sunday night. He said that everybody is doing O.K. My youngest cousin (the girl) is taking it the hardest.

    Well, I'll end now since I don't have much TTC info to report during this time. I'm going to check out some of the other charting online tools that some other people have mentioned.

    I got my OPKs yesterday in the mail. The instructions say not to use first morning urine, though. So, I guess I will try to test everyday around 10:00. At least that's my plan. I need to go to the bathroom already and it's not even 9:00 yet!
