Good job waiting rachael, I have low self control in the crunch time you're in so I commend u!!

angelbaby- Woo hoo!!!! Who cares if it's a long cycle!! you ovulated!!! YAY Now all you can do is BD like crazy today :-) Good luck

bridgette- Thanks for updating everyone!!! You're awesome

Lori- Cd12 for us today!!! Hoping we have some massive ovulations this week- not sure what a massive ovulation intels, but it sounds like something we want! ;-)

Sam- Here's to hoping you're right about your prego symptoms, and if not- here's to a fun "thirty-one party" :-) you're hilarious

Hubby and I have only not Bd'd 2 days so far, I'm debating on getting some sort of OPK. Am I too late in my cycle to get one? I have a feeling I didn't ovulate last month so it would be nice to know if I was able to this month. Any advice? Hoping we all have exciting gifts by Vday!

Hudsy: CD12 may not be too late if you have a regular cycle or one that is a little longer...it wouldnt hurt to give it a shot...

CD 16 for me and no positive opk yet...not totally surprised but I am so hoping it happens within the next few days....

WOO WOO.....riding the train.....chugga chugga....

Jennymin: I was reading your last post and I agree...I have almost gotten to the point that I dread BDing because I feel like we've done it so much and we still dont have a baby...and yes, we do have many blessings.  Good luck with taking a break this month.  I'm sure it was needed and you can start anew next cycle.  We might have to be doing that soon ourselves..

Going for round two IUI hopefully soon. On 100 mg of Clomid this cycle, instead of 50 with the last. Did anyone have more luck getting more than one follicle to mature when they increased their amount of clomid? Good luck ladies baby dust to all!!

Rachaellou – mega props to you for being able to wait to test so far.  You are a much stronger woman than me.  I usually test before af is due and then get sad about a bfn.  I hope af stays away and you get your bfp this month.

Dana – I never thought that I would actually be able to take a break, but this has been the best emotional/mental month in a really long time.  Probably best emotional/mental month since before my miscarriage a year ago.  I might do the same next month as well.  I couldn’t even tell you what cd I am on.  Never thought that day would ever come.  On top of that, when we did bd this month it was purely for fun and each other.  Something that I am sad to say has been missing lately.

Good Morning everyone, stopping by to sprinkle some baby dust!  I'm in the TWW somewhere between 4 and 8 DPO.  I'm going to try to wait till the middle of next week to test.  I'm SO glad that this week I'm going to be super busy at work, it helps pass the time and get me to not think about wanting to test early.  The last day or two my boobs have been super sore though!  I'm hoping it's a good sign, but you never know this early.

For those of you taking a break, sometimes that's when it happens, when you least expect it!

I'm so excited, Hubby told me a few days ago that he's actually wanting another kid for him now, not just for our first son and myself!  Somehow it makes it that much more exciting!

Morning Ladies-  I hope everyone had a good weekend!  I relaxed a lot!  We got hit by another storm last night into this morning- about a foot of new snow where I live.  Uggg I'm so ready for summer!

Bridgette-The new thread looks great!

Racheal- I am so impressed you haven't tested yet.  I have no willpower in that area.  I think I tested early every single month.

I'm hoping there are some BFP's Soon, I think we need some fall babies :)

Steph and Rossie- thanks for the baby dust....gathering tons and tons of it. :)

DMarie919- praying you get your positive soon! :)

Today is 14dpo for me....AF is expected today.  My temps have been staying high and my boobs have been really hurting (but that's not unusual)... until i see that positive HPT test i'm not getting my hopes up, been down that road to many times....lol  One good thing is even if AF shows I've finally been able to have my dye test scheduled for January 28th at 9:00am.  

Well good luck everyone....Stay positive...and SSBD to all! **********************************

Hey ladies..so I am torn between waiting this out or not!! I know I said I was going to wait out the 3 months but IDK. I guess I will wait until the 21st and talk to the dr.  Oh just found out another friend is pregnant luckily she lives in another state she is a week behind where I would have been if I didn't lose pregnancy #2.  UUGGHH i'm so damn frustrated!!!  Can I just have one child just one?  Sorry for rambling..and ranting

Dana- i think you're right, maybe I'll go buy one today, any good brands you'd recommend? Since my last cycle was 35 daays  I could ovulate a week late. Same w/ you, since your last cycle was so late and they say you ovulate 12-16 days before AF sooo that may be why you haven't gotten your possitive yet?? Good luck

Amy- hoping you sore bbs are a good sign!

northernsunshine- I'm glad she hasn't shown yet, but you're good to not get your hopes up! At least if you're not you'll FINALLY get that dye test. Hoping you're prego though!

Hey Rossie,

Yes if AF decides to show this week I will be able to have my dye test done on the 28th.  It has to be done 7 to 10 days from the start of AF so as long as she shows this week i'll be ok for the test.  I'm going to be some ticked off if she decides to show up only next week!  But since i had my huge temp drop this morning i'm pretty sure she'll show up today or tomorrow even if there are no other signs of her appearance yet...lol
Blank
1149221_tn?1304831566
Ha, well ladies I was still on the old thread wondering why everyone was SO quiet. I guess that's what I get for not paying good attention. I see we are all riding up and down hills on this crazy train. As for me, I'm with everyone. My bbs felt sore for a few days, but seem to have stopped this mornin. Must have just been during O? I guess I will wait and see how they feel throughout the day. It's super hard to tell since I haven't had AF. Tomorrow is 4 weeks post d&c for me so time is ticking. You ladies have help tremendously in helping my clock tick faster.

Jo- I'm really sorry your temps dropped, I had such high hopes this cycle. Maybe it's just a fluke and that little baby just got hot and started fanning to cool down? haha just kidding.

Rachael- I'm waiting to here if AF showed her ugly face! I hope she stays away and makes a snuggly home for a little baby!

Northern I'm sorry about the temp drop, but it should mean af is around the corner and u can get the test done. I had the dye test last feb, so if u have ne questions just let me know. But I'm still secretly hoping u get a bfp :)

so I'm riding that train full speed ahead and we were bding this morning. Right before the most impotant part dh got a cramp!  Ahhhh my poor man is getting old LOL. Guess we'll have to give it another shot tonight.

Hello to everyone!  Sprinkle - sprinkle!!

Feeling pretty good about the possibilities this month.  Today is CD9, little temp dip to JUST below my coverline!  
Fingers crossed!!

What's more is I am feeling quite a bit of self control - not compelled to pull out the FRERs too early.

Turned the BIG 4-0 yesterday & told my DH that I wanted to be preggo before I turned 40, so I hope I am.

Hey Ladies,

It very possible that I am just going nuts after all of this that happened in 09 but do BCP cause pregnancy symptoms?  It has been years since I took them and don't recall any.  Or could it possible be AF..I have 6 pills left before I get to the inactive ones?  I might just be paraniod but I did start the pills later than I was supposed to.  I am cramping not bad but like I did when I got my last BFP....I am having to pee alot the last couple of days and have been tired, eating everything, bbs a little tender but not as bad as when I got BFP last time.  I never called to get hcg levels but I figured if they were not at zero they would have had me go again.With my first mc 27 days later AF came..it has been 30 days since my last mc but I am thinking I messed up my cycle by starting the pills late.  Any thoughts would be great. mc Dec 25(passed tissue but was bleeding prior) last hcg was on the 8th (i'm assuming it was 0) Started bcp on the 5th.  I have an appt on the 21st with my ob/gyn.  So do BCP cause these types of symptoms??

SSBD and praying all you ladies get BFP's really soon.

GREAT NEWS! So last month I don't think I ever ovulated and I had a 35 day cycle! Today is cd14 and I just went to the bathroom and TONS of EWCM!! (TMI I KNOW) I started taking grapefruit juice right after my period and I've never experienced this! Good thing we've BD's everyday since Friday and we will today and tom. I won't know for sure if all this EWCM means I ovulated until I see how long my cycle is.this month, but if I'm right I have a good feeling about this! I just got excited and started telling my hubby and he got all grossed out he said "wow thanks for telling me, I have the grossest picture in my mind of what cervical mucus I hope I can block it out during sex" LOL! Wish us luck

1131112_tn?1321043773
Tausha- When I started BC years ago I remember I skipped a day the second week into and I had morning sickness 2 days in a row!! I would break out, bloat, sore bbs. It plays tricks with our hormones, so everything you said is normal, the only thing I don't know about is the frequent pees, but that could be hormones or psychological too I guess?? My first AF after my D&C was 35 days!!! Before that I had 28 day cycles. Your body is going through hormonal shock I'm sure! Take a midol and sleep! Good luck Tausha

Yaayy you got EWCM lol @ your DH!!  If I told my husband he would proably say the same thing =)  He just came out of the bathroom (he went to pee) and I said you didn't wash your hands ewww..so he come over and give me a kiss and says you don't wash you hands after you touch "him" I had to laugh, I suppose in some sick way he has a point...my husband is so crazy!!

Tausha:  I do think BCPs can cause some hormonal changes that can mimick pregnancy symptoms, like AF symptoms, and whatever...why are all these hormones so confusing??!  I will be praying that you come to a decision you are comfortable with and we will be here no matter what you decide.

Alicia: Good for the CM! :)  I have had a lot also lately but still no positive OPK so I don't know what that means.  I hope your cycles fall back into place as they were before the m/c...I wish mine would....

CD18 and still holding out for the positive OPK....really....this is getting really frustrating.

Tausha-It's so nice to have you around again.  I had a huge problem with some BCP mimicaing pregnancy symptoms, one of them (othro tri-cyclin i think) I would actually get sick each morning.  Whens you drs apt?

Alicia - Keep getting busy girl!!!  LOL!!  It's so funny how we get super excited for CM!!  LOL!!  I tell my DH about everything too and his response is always "that's disgusting..."  LOL!!  So funny!

Tausha - I can't remember how it felt when I first went on the pill; however, I do recall my first AF after the M/C and I had ALL of my prego symptoms!!!  I knew it couldn't be because we took that first month off.  I still get some of those symptoms now that I never had before I was actually prego.  I hate that my body plays tricks on me!!!  

Northern - So sorry about AF showing up!  Hopefully after the dye test you will get your BFP!!  Prayers for you!!

DMarie - I had a super long cycle this month too!  I didn't get my positive OPK until CD 17 which meant that I probably O on CD18!!  I usually O on CD13-CD15.  You will get your positive; keep BDing just in case you miss your surge on the OPK, which can happen if you happen to have a shorter LH surge this month!! Sending SSBD and prayers your way!!  

Everyone - All of my prayers and lots of SSBD!!

I'd avoid throwing off your hormones anymore so they can regulate and get ready for the healthiest baby ever!

Rachael-testing this weekend?! I don't know why I'm so anxious for you! good luck!

Lori- YAY O symptoms, our cycles must be like clockwork this month!, I had more EWCM this morning, but less, tonight is our last night bd'ing!I keep telling my husband that's why I love this website because I can talk about all the dirty details and nobody gets grossed out!

angelbaby- I literally laughed outloud reading your comment

steph b- If I'm pregnant I'll swear by the grapefruit juice, I'm telling you it was crazy how much! Hope I get lucky like you!

Dana- Well I suppose I could be wrong too but I hope I'm right because we're taking a bd break after tonight! I hope you get your OPK and your body gets back on routine soon

Preciouspg- Thanks, I'm glad it's doing what I want too! This is our last month trying for a while, so it would be awesome!

Well maybe I need to stay on the bc.  If i don't get a job i'm not going to be able to support anyone.  My husbands stupid insurance(who i just got off of the phone with) just informed my that his insurance *****!! So now I have multiple bills for er visits ranging from $400 -$130 WTH?!?!?!?!  I am so frustrated with everything right now.  I miss my insurance from my job it paid for everything.I just paid $25 for visits.  If I don't get a job i'm going to have to get rid of my beautiful truck =( because the payments for it are like paying rent.  Hubby pays for everything else, I am sooo beyond frustrated with not having a baby or a job and not being in school this semester because the army didn't give me my money in time AAGGGGAGGHHHHH

I don't know I feel like I gave up everything in my life when I get pregnant the first time and it was all for nothing..I had a great job, and traveled all over. (but at least I had my good insurance for the month of may after I quit my job) Sure I didn't get to see hubby as often, but the pay was outstanding. I don't know I have focused on getting pregnant since May 09 and have had nothing but heart break and disappointment and now lots of medical bills =(


Ok so that was alot of ranting and I am sitting here crying like that will help anything, add emotion as hell to my crazy symptoms.  All I can do is keep looking for a job and pray that God has a plan and he is not letting me in on it, yet!!

But anywho, hope you all are doing better than my crazy behind.

I know how you feel Tausha from my miscarriage in March, my insurance sucked and I have paid out of pocket for that loss about $1200 from the D&C to the ultrasounds, visits etc.... I know how frustrating it is. I made payment pland and i owe about $150 from all that.

I was so frustrated on the phone with them I told them I wasn't paying them lol perfect timing for all of this and I have an appt tomorrow.  These BCP really do have alot of side effects..why am I crying about this?    Life was so much easier when I still thought I couldn't get pregnant.

Lori- Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands. My husband works construction and gets SUPER tired some nights and the other night it was BD'ing night and HE FELL ASLEEP. I'm not quitter, so I decided to let him sleep for a few hours. Then at midnight lol I decided to attack him when he was sleeping really good. This is seriously TMI, but sometimes you have to use your mouth a little. Works for me EVERY time LOL. Not to mention I have found that when I wake him up that way, he's more apt to do what I want him to. I feel really naughty for saying that in public lol. BUT it works really well for me.

Tausha- When I lost my baby last month I was devastated. I had stopped school and decided not to get a job. I wanted to relax and enjoy my pregnancy, then I lost the baby and the bills started rolling in and here I am sitting at home like a bump-on-a-log. I started bawling and screaming at my dad because I just wanted to crawl into a little hole and stay there. (I was being a little dramatic and now I blame hormones). My dad said the magic words that pulled me out of my funk. Since I was younger he would always tell me I was making his back hurt and I'd always ask why and he'd always tell me he wasn't God. At first I was always confused then he'd tell me that his back wasn't made to carry all my burdens, that's what God was for. God will never give you more than you can handle and sometimes you have to just walk by blind faith to get through things. If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off. We are all here for you. And I feel ya on the big truck payments. My husband has a huge diesel and it costs $700 a month plus the cost of diesel to run the thing. OUCH. I love the truck but hate the price tag.

Rachael- I am so excited for you. I can't wait for you to test! I have my fingers and toes crossed for you!

Sam-- lol my payments has yours beat mine are $850 lol I debated over getting rid of it the first time I got pregnant and then again the 2nd time I got pregnant.  But its my "baby"..since i'm obviously never going to have a real one.  I guess its just tough because I have always had a good job and never had money issues.  I have always been a hard worker, and a great shopper lol.  Well now I have to stretch things and I don't love it.

Alicia- my DH didn't get how we can all be so open with each other, he said it must be a woman thing! LOL We use to do this thing where someone would ask a question(usually pretty personal) and you would die laughing at everyones answers. I think I know more about some of the girls here then I know about my friends I grew up with.

Tausha- i'm sorry things are going so yucky for you right now, but remember, you WILL see a rainbow after the rain :) ((HUGS))

Sam- thats what I thought, i'd let him sleep a bit and then i'd pounce, well he was in such a deep sleep that he wouldn't budge and I guess I got tired of trying and fell asleep myself! LOL BTW, it does work well =)

Ana- I have everything crossed for you!

LOL @ Sam and Lori..so naughty =)

Lori-- I know things will work out they always seem to in the end...its just all so damn frustrating!!

I just got a letter in the mail saying I didn't do follow up bloodwork..they never called and gave me the numbers from the first one so I assumed that they were 0 guess not maybe thats why I have all these stupid symptoms still I still have hormones running through me..ah fun stuff. I guess I will see what they say at my appt tomorrow.

Tausha, I am sorry you are going through a rought time.  Do a lot of praying and everything will work out in the end.  I like Sam's dad's analogy.  Cast your cares upon Him.  It has been a struggle for me to do so.  

Alicia: I am using the smiley digital OPKs by clear blue easy this month.  I bought a 20 pack.  They were on sale at walgreens.  I like them because there is no guesswork with the lines and such.  

And I have also woken DH up from a sound sleep if I felt like it was "TIME"...LOL... and don't worry, we've been trying to bd every other day anyway eventhough I haven't gotten a positive.  I know that the test says you can take it in the morning which I've been doing because it's the only time that I can do it that I havent peed for 4 hours.  But maybe that is my downfall because I wake up at 5am and I know that I've read that LH will surge more between like 10am and 8pm or something like that...any thoughts??

Oh yah, Tausha...I've kidded around that being OFF the BCP has apparently been the best form of birth control (and cheapest) I've ever used!!  SHEESH!

Evening Ladies:)

Tausha, The struggles we go through in life are tough:(  But we do become Stronger and Wiser from them:)  

Rachael, I'll just have to be patient with you:)

Babyhope, 14DPO's?????

Sam,  Thank-you for "TMI'...LOL!!!  And your comforting words about God:)

Dana,  Don't you worry you've got everything covered:)

Lori, My DH usually lets me have a nap before he decides to pounce and if I'm going to be woken up it might as well be enjoyable...lol!

Well, DH won't be here for our 'O', so I'm trying to stay busy with everything else that I can get my hands on.  I know this is off topic, but has anyone ever had hair extensions or know of people who have?  The reason I'm asking is, I'm thinking of getting them because I've been trying to grow my hair out for over a year now and its finally reached a point where I can't do any good with it anymore.  I have a few consultation appts. on Sat. and any advice would be much appreciated:)

Yeah Dana I figured I don't really need the BCP's but at the same time I am scared that just because I don't want it yet it will happen to spite me. I don't think I will ever be excited about a pregnancy again.  I would almost rather them tell me that something is wrong with me than for me to have the hope that i do have left..that keeps me wanting this soo bad that I keep putting myself through this torment.

Stopping by to send some baby dust and check in on everyone!  at least 7DPO and I REALLY hope I can hold out till the end of next week to test.  

Fugitive - Yeah, Tomorrow's my birthday!  I'm SO excited!  During our week long meeting, my manager had his wife make a few cakes because two of us in the group have birthdays this week.  It's so nice!

anxiouslywaiting910 - When I was on BCP I did have pregnancy symptoms the first three months I was on them.  (the regular BCP not the mini-pill).  Then for a bout two cycles afterwords I also had pregnancy symptoms, although I was on BCP for several years taking it at EXACTLY the same time, and only fortetting once.  I feel you on the bills, from the D&C I got three bills that ended up being over $2,000!  


hudsy - Lol, Congrats on the EWCM, I talk about it ALL the time to my hubby so he's used to it (even when I wasn't prego, I kinda don't hold back on TMI), I think after a while he just started to nod and smile, lol.

Girl power...

Denise - sending you baby dust for you to start stocking up!!

Lori, Bridgette, Northernsunshine- Stay positive girls, its going to happen and soon.

Amy - Happy early b-day, lol,

Tausha, I say leave the BC pills and go with the flow, if you don't get pregnant, no stress and if you do it was just meant to happen when it was meant to happen. Take your prenatal vitamins and just relax and enjoy your husband, lol....

Rossie- i'm trying so hard to stay positive but sometimes it's so hard. I've been doing alot of thinking and i'm really hoping that it happens before my b-day in Sept. because i'm not getting any younger and I don't want to push my luck.

Dana- If I'm not prego this month I'm definitely going to buy an OPK like that to be sure I'm hitting it. I don't want to use to line ones either

Lori- Ya DH has been great about it, he'll read certain things I write and get a weird look on his face, but doesn't comment anymore :-)

Amy- Thanks!! I got too tired to bd last night, so we'll have to see if I was right about my O day and if we bd-d enough this month!

Tausha,  CONGRATULATIONS!!!...'Praise the Lord for He Provides What We All Need and Desire:)

Babyhope, I'm soo sorry:(...But don't give up 'HOPE' because it 'WILL' happen!!!:)

Lori,  Thank-you!...I've been researching hair extensions on-line and know there are pros and cons to them.  Luckily though, a lady hairdresser that I know well at a salon I go to for other beauty treatments is the one I'm considering to get to do the extensions and my hairdresser is going to get the hair for me at wholesale cost. I'm not getting anything drastic, just want a little more volume and length.

Thanks Ladies =) Appt went well and I have prescription for enough BCP and Prenatals until the end of the year..so either way I am covered.  All was well no infections everything looks normal...and I don't need any more bw when I went in last time HCG was only 18 she said she is sure it is zero by now..and so am I since I bought a FRER HPT to make sure I got a negative.  So all is well..I told her about my side effects from the BCP and she said if they continue or get worse to let her know and we can try another. So for right now I am just going to stay on them..and try to make it through the 3 months and see how I feel after that.  With my new job I might end up in Iraq again or in Afgan. so just incase I have to go for 6 months I want to wait.  I don't want them to think I got knocked up so I didn't have to fulfill my duties.

Hope you all are havign a fabulous day..I think I need a nap..I am exhausted!!

Hahaha I'm so glad everyone got a kick out of my bluntness. I still feel a little embarrassed for saying that out here in public. I guess I shouldn't be embarrassed though, all my friends have always come to me for "personal advice". Haha I have never been shy in that area. Funny thing about it though, I was one of the last people in my high school class to lose their virginity and before I did people always joke about me becoming a nun. lol if I ever tried to become a nun, they would kick me out before I make it to the front steps lol.

So I haven't had much to update on. Physically, I feel like AF is a week or two away. Slight pre-period achey (achy) cramp things. Sore bbs. Nothing abnormal I suppose.

One thing that does frustrate me though, I had to stop drinking Chi tea when I got pregnant because it made me sick. Well I just made a cup and thought ew this will be awesome, then I smelled it and about puked. Back to green tea for me. I wonder if I'll ever be able to drink Chi Tea again. Darn it. I love green tea though, especially on cold, dreary days like today.

Alicia- someday we have to meet up! Maybe it'll be a play-date for the kids once we get around to it! haha.

Lord knows he tells me about his - LOL!  We have found that morning BD'ing seems to work best for us.  DH says he wakes up with a hard-on anyway, so we might as well put it to use.  Plus I get to go right back to sleep because I get up 2 hours after him :)

Cd25 here... not sure if I ovulated or not this month, I will find out tomorrow after I get my blood work results back.  I work at a Daycare and one of the parents found out I was trying to get pregnant and she brought me in her $300 fertility monitor!! She also gave me a book called " taking charge of your fertility"  anyone familar with it... It is soo interesting.  So now instead of paying $40 for the 7 day OPK.. I can get 20 strips for this monitor for $60...so its a pretty good deal. I thought it was soo nice of her to share it!
hoping my BFP is just around the corner!

weedwacker? Should I even ask what that's about..........................?

lol. I feel a little better now. BUT about that morning-wood stuff. My husband told me that it's a pee hard-on. He said it's only hard because he has to pee really bad. Grossed me out and for some reason I can't do it in the morning unless he pees first...then the hard-ons gone. lol. I guess I don't understand how he can "release" and not pee. GAWD the thought if that is really disturbing. lol

So uh... since we are on such a "tabu" subject. How do you ladies spice things up when it seems to get so tedious when TTC? I did the lingerie thing with candles and crazy oils, but seriously it feels too cliché now. I need a new trick. Give me something hot and good cuz it's BD'ing night and I plan to pounce ANY second now. lol MOMMAS READY!

Sam - I never thought about the peeing thing, but I'm not going to let it bother me.  That is usually the only time I get some action - LOL.  DH is just too tired at night and I love being able to go back to sleep :)  As for spicing things up, I don't know what to tell you.  DH and I are as boring as the day is long.  Our only spice is when the dog gooses him - LOL!!!

Jennifervl - Taking Charge of Your Fertility is the NUMBER ONE book I recommend to anyone who is TTC.  I LOVE IT!!!!  Can't say enough good things about it!!  Could go on and on and on.  Enjoy it!  I also use her charting software.  How cool about the monitor :)  SSBD!

As for spicing it up, it seems like you tried the sensual thing, lingerie, candles and oils, time to kick it up a notch! Movies sometimes help to give you new ideas(positions, techniques), different rooms can break things up a bit and last but not least if your adventurous toys ;) I've been with DH for 23 yrs and it's still amazing even while TTC.

tinkerbell- I could sooo see my hubby like that! When I was pregnant for those few months he was all obsessed w/ rubby my belly (I HAD NO BELLY) But he does get weirded out by prego girls so it makes me nervous and I'm not the type who'll wear a loosed baggy shirt and baggy sweats NEVER!! I'll be the pregnant chick in a binkini letting is all hang out! My poor hubby will surely be mortified!

Lori and Rossie- We have a good savings accoutn so we're just going to be it off and not think about it again! Bills just keep coming! I was feeling guilty and told DH I should've just done it naturally and he said he would've paid double that to not make me have so "see" everything and draw it out into weeks. AH that's why I married him!

Sam- Like Lori said, besides movies and toys that's about where it ends.. I'm freaky in my head but when it comes to the bedroom we don't get real crazy with toys! The shower is one of our favorite places (You gotta have the right size shower) I'd sneak in and give him so love, and it was always fun, especially after some wine! I really do get turned on by sex scenes in movies and once I'm turned on I can make it happen so that may work for you too. Maybe look into some new positions, you may find something you love!

Bridgette- My DH is pretty boring in the bedroom too, if it' weren't for me having to get creative and work hard it would have me on top doing all the work every monotonous night!!!!!!

DH & I are SO not vanilla in the bedroom that while the switch to baby-making sex was a nice change, it got old pretty fast.  However it is pretty sacred to us so we (I) have working on really trying to narrow down the "window".

I know, that seems kind of weird, but then again DH & I are quite weird.  :)

Tinkerbell, Thank-you soo much:)  Your soo 'BEAUTIFUL!!!...with or without them.  I will definately share some before and after photos, but it won't be for another 6 weeks because I have to grow some more hair in spots.

I always wondered how my DH can hold it while performing because I know I have to empty before I can...LOL!

Sam, What spices our bedroom up is the fact my DH always works out of town for long periods of time.  But when he gets home, we like to have a few nights where we stay in and have a nice dinner with or without the kids and then later we turn the lights down low and play some music and dance the night away before we 'Make Love'.  The kids usually run away when they see this and if they've left the house, then I'll usually do a strip tease for my DH, which he really 'LOVES:)

I asked dh about the peeing thing and he said it was only a problem when he was younger. So I'm going to stay happy w/the morning routine :)

as for the bedroom, dh would get a lot more " freaky " if I would let him.  Unfortunately I have a lot of hang ups from my religious upbringing. I wish I could get over them, but I can't seem to relax.

I do have one good story (which I know some of u have heard). Shortly after we bought our house and moved in we had to make sure that we did it in each room. One summer day, after a couple of cocktails. Dh decides it's a good idea to do it in our backyard. It is fenced in, but we still have neighbors on each side. Well we enjoyed ourselves in the grass and everything was great BUT shortly there after I wound up with lymes disease. To this day we don't know if I got the tick from our romp or from chopping down a tree. But needless to say he hasn't gotten me to bd in the backyard since!!

Ok some one else turn to tell a funny BD story :)

Good afternoon everyone!  Man am I glad that my meeting is FINALLY over!  I've learned so much and had a great time, but I'm just so tired!  I didn't get to sleep till just about midnight last night, then had to wake at 6ish!  

Anyway, I was wondering, does anyone get EWCM after ovulation and wasn't pregnant?  I don't normally get it post ovulation, and read it's hormone driven.  Well today (maybe yesterday too, but I don't remember), at least 8 DOP, I've noticed some EWCM and the last two times I was pregnant I noticed I had it a little EWCM post ovulation before I got the BFP.  Just wondering if any of you know what other types of things could cause EWCM post ovulation.  I've been very tired lately due to our week long meeting at work, and had a few late nights.  It hasn't been stressful, just tiring from all the information being thrown at us.

hudsy - That isn't bad, we had to pay at least $2,000 for the D&C!  And that's with them covering most of it.  We also got three different bills for it!

Bam - That's so funny!  We did the SAME thing when we bought our place (although we don't have a fenced in yard, so we didn't do it outside.

BAHAHAHAHA! I opened up pandoras box when I asked about romping tricks didn't I?

I didn't even do any BD'ing last night. I was tired, so we decided to wait till morning, BUT I was up till 2 am reading and on the phone with my brother. So needless to say, after breakfast at 5am, there was no dessert. I went back to bed at 630 then got up at 730 and drank about a pot of coffee.

I decided if I am no prego this month,.... this sounds bizarre, but I plan to go do some volunteer work in Haiti. I have always loved mission/volunteer work and I need a new awakening. After I get done with that I will start TTC again, but for some reason I feel like I'm truly being called to help. I spent half the morning researching and planning that. Then cleaned... my coffee pot looked like a chimney with all the black. My hand was raw by the time I was done.. SICK lol. THEN the dreaded TAX time. My dad still does my taxes haha so I have to get EVERYTHING rounded up and when you own a small business, that can suck. I've been slacking on keeping records this year. Shame on me, I know.

Now I'm pooped. BTW- sex positions, movies, toys... Been. There. Done. That. lol movies work for me, but golly I feel naughty watching pornos lol. Toys- I only like vibrators but I have one complaint- they aren't strong enough LOL. I want one that makes my teeth chatter, seriously. And as for positions. I have a tilted uterus which makes a lot of strange positions painful.--- NOW the shower, that makes me purr every time. Maybe I'll sneak in for a little wet and wild time once we decide to get back in the game...or just cuz I'm feeling devilish. I'm really sure I'm about to start AF though, the cramps and aches are comin stronger.

cocacola:  yes unfortunately last month I remember having EWCM on cd28 and I didn't get a bfp :(  Of course I had a 40 day cycle so I guess that could have been still ovulation except I thought I ovulated a week prior to that but my cycles are driving me crazy so who knows....

Rachael: CONGRATS!  Bout time for a BFP around here again.... :)  Hope that you are starting a string of them...

Well, CD22 and still no smiley.  Here's my question.  If I can't seem to produce enough LH for a surge then wouldn't it be a waste of money to buy a monitor??

rachaellou06 - YEAH!!! I'm SO excited for you!

DMarie919 - Thanks,  I really wasn't sure.  With being so tired and bloated/morning sickness (and gassiness) I guess it's just wishful thinking!  (Although both could be from AF coming too I guess)

Sending a little baby dust to everyone!

Woo Hoo Rachael!  I was so afraid that we were going to have to force you to test.  I had a feeling last weekend you were a bfp!  Here's to an uneventful 9 months.

Now who's next?

Congrats to Rachael on your BFP!!!! I have been praying so hard that we get some good news.... I am hoping more come rolling in =)

Dana, I just saw your question about the monitor, I still think it would be a good idea as the CBFM collects information about estrogen levels as well as LH, it would give you an indication how high those levels are too.... just a thought!

Denise thanks for your kind words on the pics I uploaded for you... I will take them down now you have looked as hate looking at photos of myself!!

Sprinkling more magical babydust on you all ******************************

Well, let me start by saying congrats to Rachel!!!  I'm trying to catch up, I have been away the past few days.  Well, yesterday was my SIL's babyshower that I planned.  It wasn't as bad as I thought it could have been!  I think since I was th host and busy keeping the buffet full of food, fresh punch in the bowl, and taking all of the pictures, it made it so much easier than just sitting there thinking that my shower should be coming up in the next few weeks too; however, now that the shower is over, I keep catching myself wondering what mine would have been like and who would have come, etc.  I was really hoping to have my BFP by now, but that just wasn't in the cards yet for me.  Hopefully soon...hopefully before my EDD of March 30.  Anyway, fingers crossed I get my BFP next week!  SSBD to everyone!!

Deb: Thanks for the advice.  I just hate to spend that much money on something that won't really help me out!  

I am so excited today as I got my smiley OPK! :)  Seems as though something was telling me to re-test this morning later than I usually do because I have been having other O symptoms...and sure enough, the positive was on the horizon!  And, I never have had so much EWCM!  Now, if I could only get time alone with dh to do the deed!  And today of all days he wants to watch football tonight!!  I'm gonna have to pull out all the stops!

Dana- Yay for the positive...hope you were able to drag him away from the tv for a little while at least...lol

Well i've been making myself crazy surfing the web and reading some ladies diffrent experiences with the dye test that I'm scheduled for this thursday.  I'm now scare to death!  I really need to learn to stay off the web when i'm scheduled for these type of things...LOL  The thing i'm most scared of it the clamping of the cervix.  It just sounds so awful.  Boy, i hope i can go through with this and that's it's all worth it and we get our BFP next month.

SSBD to all!!! ***********************************
