Hi everyone. My name is Peggy & DH is Baden (pronounced Bayden). I'm 31 and he will be 34 this week. We are high school sweethearts and been together for 17 years. We started ttc back in April. AF showed this week so now we will try again on this coming cycle #5. I can't wait to have our blessing from God when he thinks we are ready. I believe it will happen and we are sooo blessed right now, I could only imagine how much more love & excitement it will bring to hubby and me. I am a full time nanny of two boys ages 4 & 19 months. They are our Godchildren and the parents are also our best friends/family. We live 3 miles apart, and it is a wonderful situation. I've been watching the oldest since he was 3 months old. I'm am lucky enough to be able to watch their children for them. I plan on being a SAHM when that comes around. My hubby is a wonderful man. I love him, and I love God for bringing us together and being our solid rock and our foundation. I can't wait to get to know everyone around here. I hope WE ALLl get our BFP! I will be back later to check in. [/url]
Well today is crazy...actually all this week has been a bit wacko. We got back from Cancun late Sunday night. We had such a nice & relaxing time. The hotel was awesome and our second time and their 2nd year to be open. It sure beats out the Ritz by a long shot. We have time to renew ourselves and such. I wish I was still there. Anyways...I said I wouldn't buy anymore OPTs and I gave in yesterday. Oh well, so much for will power! I'm on cycle day 15 now and am showing some signs today with my cervical F. I took the test and didn't get a positive on the surge....YET!!! I can't wait any longer. I hope this will be me and hubby's lucky month of trying. It will be our 5 cycle trying. Keep your fingers crossed. I thought I would become preggo right away. But I know God has his plan in sight....not mine. I know it's driving DH a bit looney and me too. I know that I'm obbsessing about ttc and when it does happen I will be obbessing about the baby! Oh well. I am off to get on the treadmill while the boys (I'm a nanny) are still napping. The oldest who is 4 has been a mad man this week. What a way to welcome me back from vacation. The youngest one, is 20 months is getting a cold. Great...preschool starts on Monday for the 4 yr old and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he doesn't have to miss any of those 3 days next week! Ladies, keep your fingers crossed that I get a surge in the next couple of days and that we get our BFP this month!!!!!!
Glad it's Friday! Today is cycle day 16. My cycles run a bit late. I usually Ovulate around cycle day 17-20. I used my OPT test this morning and there were two lines....except one was a lot lighter than the other. Thursday it wasn't even there. I'm expecting that tomorrow will be the day I get a positive on my surge and we can BD that day or night and then again on Sunday! I sure hope this is my lucky cycle. This whole ttc thing has made me a bit of a nut. Me & DH are going to work out and such tonight. Tomorrow, I am home alone while he is at work. I will clean the house, and pool and go swimming and work out. We are watching the boys tomorrow night and putting them to bed early so we can grill and hang out and watch some Saturday N.Live. My fav! I'm supposed to go to our church for some volunteer training at 8:30 for the children's ministry, but shame on me...I'm thinking of excuses to put it off. I need to go. I'm just tired and would love to sleep in. I already am getting up early with the boys on Sunday 7:30. I will go, I need to go, and want to go. God willing. I'm off now...keep your fingers crossed that DH wants to BD tomorrow and the next day to. He always over does it and is to tired sometimes. I tell him if he wants to have a baby....we NEED to have more SEX!!! LOL!
I'm soooo tired today. I've been up and cleaning and then in the pool. I could hardly stay awake while floating on my float that I had to get out 45 minutes later. anyways....I took my Opt this morning and there are still 2 lines. One is faint and the other normal. I have some cervical mucus. Not a lot, but some. I think we will start BD tonight and then again sometime tomorrow. I sure hope we get a positive in the morning with the OPTs. Keep your fingers crossed. I gotta go finish making supper for the boys. They are coming over to stay tonight. Be back later. Have a wonderful Saturday!
Well, we did the deed after I put the boys to bed on Saturday night. I tested wtih the Opt on Sunday and it had two lines along with more EW CVF. We BD again later on during the evening. Now I'm waiting for hubby to get home and we will try once again (praying) that he will be up to it and such since it's been a long Monday for him and he hasn't even eaten supper yet and it's almost 9. I haven't either....we always eat together even if it's late. Pray for me that we get our BFP this cycle!!!! Oh, I want it soooooooo much. I keep going into the room that would be the babies room and keep imagining the crib and of course the baby. Ughhhhhhhh...............God PLEASEEEEE send us a miracle! Gotta run. TTFN have a wonderful night. By the way...we had such a great day with Colin going off to school and all. He was in a great mood, which makes my job easy and wonderful! Gotta love those kiddos!
Well, I can't believe all this time has past since my last post. On the ttc note.....AF showed her ugly face today. I knew that we really didn't have a chance last month. I had surgery just a little over two weeks ago (nothing major, just a little p.surgery to correct something) and I was O during that time I was recovering. Not much has been going on. Got back to working with the boys this past Monday after two weeks of rest. I'm happy to be back into our routine of things. We went to Italy at the end of October for two weeks. That was awesome! Last weekend we were in Vegas from Thurs-Sunday. Lots of fun! Dh is having some issues with the ttc thing. He feels like we need to let it happen naturally instead. I think the pressure is just beating us down. It'll be a year in April that we've been trying. I hope this coming cycle is our chance. It would be soooo nice to have a baby this coming 2006. I guess we have until March to achieve that. Wish us luck ladies. I'm sending you all baby dust also!!!
I'm so glad that we got Monday out of the way! Work was good, the boys were good. Didn't do much. Took Colin to school and worked/played with Cameron until nap time. Hubby and me had a good time last night. We grilled and had some drinks while we watched the s.bowl. I sure needed those drinks cause AF was kicking my a** . My obgyn said that I can drink 2 weeks out of every cycle. Which would mean the week of my period and the week right after. Well, believe me.....I look forward to them once she shows her ugly face here. I get so stressed out about AF that I reward myself with several drinks. I would have one now, but we only drink on the weekends. I read today that 90% of ttc couples will take more than 12 months to concieve. I can see that being right. Who ever would of thought that ttc would be so hard? Running a marathon is a lot easier for me than these last 10 months. I feel that me and DH have stood the test of time (h.s. sweethearts-together for 17 yrs). Then I start to blame myself for waiting to start trying until I was 30. We should of started when I was 25. I also read that in your 30s it get's a bit harder. I need to stop reading all the info out there. It's making me crazier than I already am! Plus, I'm just getting so about all this. I feel like I need to talk to someone. I'm glad I'm here, atleast I can post the way I feel Dh is going out of town tomorrow, but atleast he will be back by Thursday. He is also going out of town the following week. Gone on Vday also. Not that we go out on that night, but would be nice to dtd then
Can you believe it's almost the weekend!!! I'm soooo happy about that and DH is coming home tonight! Not much going on. I'm not sure if I'm going to be round here much or at the other board I visit. I just can't go on constantly thinking of ttc. I know, it's easier said than done. I've tried before, but this time I think I really need to let it go and give it to God. It might be in my plan, but in reality God is the one that has it all planned out. I can think back to things that I really wanted and prayed for and it didn't come at the point. Not until later did I notice God had it worked out for the best time. I'm very hopeful and have tremendous faith in Him. I know we will get our BFP, but I can't go on my daily life consumed by TTC. I need to stop all the craziness of stress, counting days, wasting $$ on OPT & HPT and such. I have a wonderful life and it's time I start really enjoying it. I was going to run the Big D marathon in April, but I had that unexpected surgery 3 weeks ago that has put me into not training for atleast 6 to 8 weeks. Although I've been walking my usual 6 mile run every day I don't think I will be able to complete 26 miles. I will aim for the Dec. marathon and if I get pregnant in the mean time, I will just put it off. I need to think of other things.............I'm sure you all have felt this way before. I'm going to volunteer more at my church, do more things with my friends, and enjoy BD with DH without talk of TTC. Wish me luck....cause I know I will have an emotional time trying to do this. Good luck ladies! I will check in soon and keep you posted. Thanks for reading
I'm still here...hmmmm I just wanted to share some pictures so you could have some faces to go along with me, my DH, the boys. Plus a few more. I never figured out how to upload pictures to my avater/siggie
I can't believe I'm still here in the ttc our first child.....now it's been a whole year and then some....very sad. I am waiting until next month after AF shows and then we are starting with some tests and with Clomid. DH already got his SA done and it was good.....not great, but alright. My doc is going to do some sonogram w/dye to check out if my tubes are blocked ans so on. I sure pray that we get lucky and either the Clomid fixes the problem or we just get blessed with a child naturally. With my Lupus, I don't know how much hormones I can actually take without aggrivating it. I am completely in remission and want to avoid any hormones that are not my own....KWIM? Anyways, DH is still a good trooper. I've been reading The Conception Cronicles and it is very to the T with all the ups & downs of TTC. Has a lot of scary tests that go into detail that I'm hoping not to incounter. I'm hanging my head up and placing my heart in God's hand. Other than that......I hope to hear from some of your thoughts...Good things I'm hoping your way too ladies. Take care!
