Ugh, I've been sooo sick the past 24hrs. Last night I spent a good 2 1/2 - 3 hrs hailing the porceline gods. I hate getting this. This is the 2nd time this yr we've had it, which is uncommon for us. Usually we just get colds. I took Katy to the dr yesterday and she has bronchitis my poor little munchkin. She is on antibiotics and acting like herself. The only one who hasn't been sick at all is dh, and Im sure his is coming.
:witch: isn't bad at all..The first days was medium and now im more spotting than anything. I've barely went through 5 pads. I don't mind though, I just wish I could get rid of this headache.
We have soo much to do before we leave for CA, I am really not looking forward to going. The kids go to their moms on friday until christmas day, and in that time i've got to clean the house, wash laundry and get everyone packed. Also, have to go buy the additional things we need to take with us. I am getting some cleaning done tonight, thank goodness. I just hope and pray we get there and back safely.
Off to do more :laundry: and wash dishes.. :wavehello:
CD4 - AF has left the building
WOW! I think this was the shortest/lightest af that I've had in a long time. I barely had a medium flow, def wasn't heavy at all. Last night I was spotting a little bit, and today I am wearing a tiny panty liner, which Im about to take off bc I haven't done anything. Im not complaining though, I'd rather have a light af than a heavy one.
I don't feel icky anymore, im not stuffy but I can still barely eat and sometimes feel nausous.
I got quite a bit done last night, I did all the :laundry: except the whites, which is today, I cleaned the kitchen/living rm/computer room, our bedroom and the kids bedroom/bath. I need to vaccum, but I'll do that tomorrow. Well, dh is bugging me to get off his computer :roll: I'll write more later.
ok, I know it's waaay too early but I took a opk a few hrs ago, and it was neg, but had more of a line than any test I had last cycle. It's too early for me to be Oing. I was cramping last night, and I keep waking up feeling "wet", like I have cm..it's kinda watery but I wouldn't call it "fertile". It's about 520am, and Im about to go lay down until dh gets home. He has been working 12hr days for the past 2 wks..It's been very quiet around here, just me and Katy. The kids come home on sunday, so it'll get back to normal then LOL! Got alot to do today, have to go get a copy of Katy's birth certificate, go renew my dl, and go to the post office, then go into work for a few hrs..im thinking i'll only work for about 2hrs. Im supposed to be off, but they asked me to come in when I picked up my check..so i said yes..I hate saying no when im put on the spot LOL!
Well, this may be my last entry until the 26th or so, we are leaving sunday afternoon to go to CA for a week to visit the inlaws :scared: I've got the older 3 kids packed, and will get the rest of us packed by sat.
I have 3(or 4) more opk's and I'll take one later on today to see if the line is getting darker. It's odd though that the line is as dark as it is for me being on cd11, usually I dont O until cd19 or 20. Oh well. I will try to update later on today or tomorrow.
:wavehello: have a good day all! Thanks 4 Reading
:wow: over 1000 views, im surprised it got up that high in just a few mths thanks to all who read this, I hope I keep it interesting for you all
Don't have time to write much right now, but just wanted to say that I've had some watery cm turning into ewcm, so maybe it means i'll O soon.
Not much time to post, since we're about to leave but last night I had quite a bit of ewcm, and we dtd early this am..so well see if anything happens this mth. We're not really trying, trying this mth bc we'll be out of town. I hope everyone has a merry christmas and a happy and safe new year.
Man oh man, I now know(or pretty damn sure) when I am about to O..At disneyland tues, yesterday and some of today I have had the worst cramping to where I could hardly walk. I have this every mth, and im almost 100% positive that, thats what it is. I have also had some ewcm, so I think this week was the week..oh well, atleast im noticing more of the signs. And it started happening around cd16 too, which is way earlier than normal, so who knows.
I teased dh yesterday at disneyland bc I saw like 5 sets of twins, and only one of them were boys it was funny. 3 days until we go back home, i'm not looking forward to going back on the airplane, but i am kinda glad to be going back home. We are going camping tomorrow, and shooting :roll: not MY idea of fun, but Im glad that dh is having fun with his family. Well, I need to get going, hope everyone is having a great holiday and a even better new year. :wavehello:
Hmmm, it's good to be back in the comfort and privacy of my own home. We are all trying to settle down, and get back to normal.
Aside from what I wrote on cd18, im not really sure of when I o'd. On sat morning I had alot of cm, but just when I woke up, and not any after that. We will be starting up ttc'ing again this mth, hopefully it will happen soon. Im not going to let it consume me though, I am also working on losing weight and some other stuff.
~It will happen in GOD's time~
ugh, I feel like crap. If its not my back hurting, its a headache. I just want to sleep. I am sooo tempted to call out of work tomorrow, go to sleep now and do my "chores" tomorrw...but I cant. I think if I O'd, it would have been around cd16 or so, but no later than cd18..who knows though. Maybe I'll start sooner this mth. Ive been crampy too blah.
Just wanted to update ya
No baby this time either, oh well. I have a new game plan that hopefully works, we'll see. This period is way more worse than the last few i've had. Im going more heavily, cramps and all. It hurts to just move while im in my chair. I'm hoping it only lasts about 3 days though...
Thanks to everyone reading this :wavehello:
I made it to 4 pages :woohoo:
Thank goodness today was better than yesterday, much lighter no cramps. I am hoping that this is the last visit from the :witch: for a long, long time
Sometimes I feel like I should just give up, it's been almost a year (on and off) of ttc and still no luck yet. It's funny how when you WANT things to happen, they never do..but when you're not expecting them, they do. We totally we're surprised with Katy, and I would soo like to give her a little brother/sister, but sometimes I feel like that may never happen. If (heaven forbid) something ever happened to dh, or we divorced, then Katy and I would never see the other kids bc his ex is a total bitch and wouldn't let me. I would like for Katy to always have someone there.
Im in a shitty mood, please forgive me. Work was ok, busy! I work tomorrow and then off until next sunday. I think im also getting a bit depressed bc Katy is turning 2 on saturday..I can't beleive it. She is learing so much, and just her own little person. She loves to do things herself, and she has quite the attitude if she gets mad :biglaugh: Sometimes we just sit and watch her play, or sing..it's really quite entertaining. She has learned to do "head/shoulders/knees & toes" its soooo cute.
Well, I think im going to go take a nap..
CD7 - Current mood: :annoyed:
I'm annoyed about many things/people right now, but I'm too tired to go into details at this time.
Cycle update: still having some cramps, but nothing unbearable. Also, backaches and headaches, but af has gone..hopefully for a loooong time
Current mood - :sleep:
Nothing exciting to write..My stress levels are through the roof and I am feel like I could explode.
I have been a bit crampy and extremely tired, but hey when aint I??? I almost bought some opk's tonight @ walmart, but decided not too. Not sure why. DH wants to :boff: before we go to bed, not really in the mood but what the hell LOL!
light cramping, but not bad. Dr's appt tomorrow.
Cramping on both sides, and lots of "wetness". I dont know whats goin on, bc I shouldnt be Oing this late, but yet im cramping on both sides. I guess I'll find out on monday whats goin on.
I'm about to hit the bed, but wanted to update first. I'm really nervous about my appt tomorrow, I know I probably shouldn't be, but for some odd reason I am. I still have cramping like Im Oing..hopefully Im not this late. I will update after my appt tomorrow.
Ugh, cramping again..perhaps af is going to come early?? Not sure, but my lower back is aching and im cramping again. I'm kinda eager to start this next cycle and get things going.
CD23 - 7dpo
Well, occording to my tcoyf chart I O'd on cd16..which is about normal with the meds. I got some VERY positive opk's last week, and I just hope that this is our mth. I've been crampy on and off. I guess I will start testing on sunday cd26-10dpo.
Wish us luck
sore and achey bb's, and feeling kinda crampy. Hoping this is all good signs.
My back hurts, Im cramping badly and I've got an on/off headache. I hate ttc, it's such a pita. I had some very dark opk's this last time and thought for sure that we'd get pg this time..but nope :cry: I just bought some opk's/hpt's online so hopefully this will be the last time I have to buy them..I'm not holding my breath though :roll:
I missed my dr's appt yesterday, so I now have to see if my dr will call me in another round of clomid, not sure if she will or not though, but it doesn't hurt to try...right? The only semi-good thing about this cycle is that yes, while my back hurts like hell my "flow" isn't bad at all. I've only went through 3 pads today. Well, need to go clean some.
Well, I called my dr and she did call in the RX for me yay! I took my first one tonight, so lets see if round 2 will be any luck. I'm really hoping this is the last mth that i will have af for a long, long time. I am only going to use FF chart and really stick with my temping. :goodluck: to us!
Gearing up to O..I think. I have been cramping some, and this is my 2nd round on clomid, so we'll see if it works this time. I bought some internet opks, but haven't had a pos yet. I'm trying to be strict with my temping, but sometimes its hard. I go back to the dr on CD22 to get my prog. tested...here's hoping for a good #.
Going to bed now :wavehello:
Well, im tired as hell, my shoulder is killing me and im very crampy. I was having some major O cramps,pressure and pain earlier today. Unfortunately our schedule wouldn't allow us to DTD, so we have to tomorrow morning before I go into work. My internet opk is neg right now, but I will monitor my temps and take another test tomorrow. I should hopefully O either tomorrow or friday...here's hoping & praying.
Well, today I went in and had my prog. level checked. I won't know the results until atleast tomorrow..hopefully. I don't think I can stand waiting all weekend to find out. They had to stick me twice, as usual. They can never get a good vein in my arm, but they try anyway. DH laughed at me when I walked out bc I had a bandaide on my hand, and my arm. He said I looked like a human pin cusion LOL!
I'm happy my temps are staying up, hopefully they will continue to rise.
No real "symptoms" but then again I don't expect any this early on, kwim? I still think im more around 7dpo, but ff says im only 6dpo :roll:
My normal jeans that I wear are very snug, and usually they're only that way after I wash/dry them..hope its a good sign. I've been trying to stick with vitamins, so far so good.
thats it for now :wavehello:
Argh! so the dr's office didn't call me today with my results..figures, now I have to wait until monday. I had a slight "dip" in my temp today, hopefully it will go back up and not dip anymore. Here's the "signs" that I have thus far.
* Gas :oops:
* cramping and/or twinges in my stomache
* pulling feeling
I've also noticed that my bb's are a bit sore, but im not reading much into that since they usually are after O anyway. I really am not sure if we got it this time, I have a more hopeful feeling than any other time, but still. I have alot of IC hpt's, so I may start testing on monday (10dpo). I know that if its neg, its still early, so I think it'll be ok. Can't wait for them to call with my results.
On seperate note, we have had some very severe weather today. When I went into work at noon, it was cloudy and windy but nothing major. Around 1-130pm is when it all started. I was worried about my kids and dh bc he wasn't answering his phone and didn't have a way to get in touch with him. Man, talk about feeling helpless. Luckily we only got a bit of rain/thunder/lighting..it's nearly 7pm now and it's still lightning a bit, but I think we're all clear for now. This is what I hate most about spring..sure you get the nice pretty warm weather, but you also get the severe weather too :roll:
Wow, has it been a looooooong time since I last wrote in here. Not a whole lot going on, we are STILL ttc #2 together. I was taking clomid, but stopped in june bc of the hotflashes. I will start it up again after I finish the prometrium and my cycles start up again...so, here we go again.
CD- who knows.
Because my cycles has been sooo screwy, and I haven't had a period in over 2mths, I went to the dr last tues..unfortunately my dr wasn't in, so I had to see the NP..i kinda wish I had seen my reg dr. Anyway, the NP gave me a Rx for prometrium to take for 7 days, and hopefully my period will start again.
I was reading the pamphlet about the side effects and boy am I having alot of those. It seems like the min I take the pill, I get extremely sleepy and saturday I even felt a bit dizzy.
I can't wait to get this cycle started, I have my clomid and opk's, now i'm just waiting.
I feel sooo down today..I feel very depressed and just...well, down. I hope this feeling goes away soon, I hate it.
Well, I think i'm going to go lay down.
I am sooo happy that I finally started a new cycle on saturday. I was a bit surprised that after only 3 days off the prometrium af came. I was reading up on the side effects and such and some waited 10 days and still no period..I am so glad I wasn't one of them LOL!
I had expected my period to be bad, simply bc I hadn't had one in so long, but nope..it's a bit heavier, but nothing too bad. I was having some cramps sunday night, took 2 tylenol and BAM they were gone. I can't wait until tomorrow bc I start my clomid I really, really hope it works this time. I've only got one more round after this one, and then it's back to the dr's I go :roll: hopefully she will up the dosage or something.
The only thing is, I am NOT looking forward to the hotflashes, OMG they were horrible. I started charting again too, Im hoping I can keep up with it this cycle..i tend to forget sometimes :oops:
Well, that's it for now..hope everyone has a good day :wavehello:
Today was day 3 on clomid, 2 more days and then it's time to start taking the opk's. I really, really hope this is our cycle. We sure could use some good news around here, since alot has gone wrong lately.
As I said in my last entry, I thought this cycle would have been bad, but nope..It feels like i wasn't even on my period. I've been soo sleepy as all get-out, by the time 5pm comes around, I am soo exhausted all I want to do is go to bed..I usually stay up until atleast 9 though..and this whole week I stayed up and didn't take a nap at all..which is really odd for me. I had my blanket and pillows on the couch last night, all the lights out, just the christmas tree lights on, and was about to fall asleep when I saw a movie on that I liked and hadn't seen in awhile, so I ended up watching it, then it was almost time for dh to get home, so I just got back up, colored my hair and then cooked him something for when he got home.
Anyhoo...next time I go to the dr's i'm going to have more blood work done, and get them to test my iron levels, i think their a bit off.
There has been something that I am very worried about, and it's scarring me. I need to go to my dr about it, but i'm scared of what the results will be, esp after just losing my dad 2 1/2 mths ago. It's not something me, or my family can deal with right now. I just hope it goes away, and doesn't come back...maybe it's because of the hormones around this part of my cycle, :dontknow:
