I would love to have a chat thread either way
Great! So what's everyone up to this lovely month of June? Where is everyone at in their cycles? How many kiddos do you have? Do you want a boy or girl for your first or next baby?
AFM-I'm working and studying a lot this month. I'm an architect and I have to take a bunch of tests before I get my actual professional license. So I'm putting my head in the books to get through this 2ww, which started today. The last 2ww, I spent most of my hours googling phantom symptoms. I cannot do that this time. Haha. I have no kiddos, I'm trying for my first and I think I'm leaning towards wanting a boy for my first. But really I would love a boy or girl.
I'll join in. I've just started a new cycle, so I'm in the WTO group. On clomid, charting temps and using opk's.
Not much going on here, getting new kitchen cabinets. Hoping that they will be done before our anniversary at the end of the month!
Eliann- hope your 2ww passes quickly for you and you get a +!
I'm Still waiting to O according to OPK's but BD occassionally just in case We have one daughter. She's 2 years and 7 months tomorrow. This will be our last baby for health reasons. I have had two ectopics and have been lucky enough not to lose a tube or have any other serious complications from it, so hopefully we will be able to have one more healthy baby and then we will stop. I've always wanted to adopt also but that would have to wait until after we buy our 1st home. Because this is possibly our last ever we both really want a boy. We would love to have one of each but, a girl would be much cheaper haha. We only have about 20 totes of girl clothes stashed away.
I'm off school at the moment. I'm working on my degree in Early Childhood education. That means I'm home with my daughter Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, which I love Monday and Friday I'm working at an home daycare and Ash gets to spend one day a week with each of her grandmas. Ashlynn and I are going to the free summer series shows at a local theatre once a week. We are also going to go out of town for Father's Day weekend to Relax and swim and have no responsibilities That will be during my TWW so I'm hoping it will help pass the time ! I am planning on testing the first time the 23rd but my best friends baby shower is the 24th ... So I might wait until after the shower instead. I probably won't be able to hold out that long.
Hi ladies! I'm in the waiting to O category but I don't really pay much attention to it these days (thank goodness!) I spent way too many days/month/year obsessing and it caused way too much heartache. I got testing done and tried Clomid and still nothing. I am not sure if I am even able to have children so now I just go at with a JLIH attitude and if it happens, yay! If not, well then it wasn't meant to be.
I am currently in the process of getting enrolled for college this fall (for the first time and after being out of school for 6 years, yikes!) so that is taking up a lot of time right now which is good and exciting!
Megan - I am sorry you had ectopic pregnancies. That must have been so scary! Thank goodness your tubes weren't affected or any other serious complications. I hope you get pregnant right away and that you have a very healthy pregnancy.
Pam - Is this your first cycle using Clomid? If not, how does it affect you? Any bizzare symptoms? How exciting about the cabinets! DH and I remodeled our kitchen in 2010 and it felt almost like Christmas came early! Anyways, fingers crossed this is the month for you!
Michelle- this will be my second round of clomid for this time (took two rounds with my first pregnancy). I didn't have any symptoms that I can remember with the first, but last month I had some pretty strong cramps for about a week after I took it. I'm super excited about the cabinets. I only have two drawers with my current ones...no storage or counter space either. Good luck with college!
June is a busy month for me. I have my wedding shower coming up this weekend, and a bunch of birthdays/birthday parties this month too. We've been doing a reno on our house, so I still need to putty and sand the nail holes in the trim around the ENTIRE house (FML), and prime/paint it too. The goal is to have that done before the wedding on Sept. 1st.
I'm in the TWW now, hoping to test this Sunday if AF doesn't show first. I'm spotting, which is typical at this point in my cycle, so my hopes aren't high of getting a BFP this month. I took two months off of temping, but picked up a load of OPKs to fill in the gaps. Now I'm doing both though. FH is extremely helpful when it comes to charting, and reminds me to take my temp in the morning. Sometimes I wake up to him putting it in my mouth, LOL! LOVE the FF iPhone app, makes charting SO much easier.
We don't have kids yet, but we can't wait, hence TTC prior to the wedding! I would obviously take either, but would love to have a girl first. FH's family is almost entirely male, we need some more females over here!
Really hoping that my stay here is short, but looking forward to getting to know you ladies! Elizabeth (eliann) and I have been over on the TOC board for a while, glad we're making the switch to TTC together!
Jessica (26) - TTC Plans on hold while DH finishes chemo
Losses 13.09.12 & 10.04.13
I'm in limbo, WTO/waiting for AF, not really in the TWW. Annovulatory cycle with some spotting but FF keeps flipping back and forth between and O on CD 28 and no O so I started a new cycle as of the first day of spotting, easier that way.
We were planning a break after a year and a half of TTC (started in Nov 2010) but since I got a call for an appointment with the OB after a 7 month wait we're going to keep at it for now. Waiting to see what she says next month and decide on a course of action from there. I have an u/s scheduled to check my ovaries for cysts but that's not till November and if I have to wait until after that for treatment then we'll take a break until then.
I have a DD from my previous marriage so we know I can have kids in theory and DH's S/A came back normal, but I have a history of irregular cycles so I'm hoping we can try something. Adoption is still on our radar but I want a new baby so bad it hurts.
