Pum, I appreciate your feedback! I'll try to do my painting/stripping work during and immediately after AF, then stop around o time. I was worried that the solvents could affect developing eggs too. Hopefully, that's not the case. Wishing you good luck too! Catherine
Pum, thanks for the response regarding paint and stripping chemicals. I've been curious, is the problem, these chemicals causing birth defects, caused from being inhaled or getting the solvents on your skin? I normally work outside and wear protective gloves, have worn a mask when sanding, but not sure what face mask would keep fumes out. Take care, Catherine, Kansas City
I finished ovulation either Monday night or Tues morning. I'm so sad. :( It's so hard to not try when you know you're totally ovulating! But at least I won't have to worry about POAS, I guess, and obsessing about every possible preg symptom! But next month no matter what, I am going to try! :-) I sure hope this is the month for you! I will be following everyone else especially closely this month to keep my mind off of me having to lose a month! Lots of super sticky baby dust to you!!!! :-)
