Trying to Get Pregnant

Newbie Playdate (newbs and lurks welcome)

Good morning, ladies!  Hope everyone is going well.  I've got some time this morning so I thought I'd offer up a newbie playdate.  Ask me your questions, don't be shy. 

It's a flame-free zone, except for "am I pg" questions, I can't handle those right now. 

So, ask away.  I'll do my best, and the other regs can help if they like.

    It's definitely your body getting ready for baby.  Hopefully it'll help to prevent stretch marks later on. 

    Honestly, if it were me, I'd just start posting on the tri boards.  I mean, you'll definitely be pregnant so you might as well get a head start.  KWIM!

    What would the purpose of it even be for? A 13 does not need to drive. 16 is even too early IMO.

    Oh honey, I feel your pain!  I take imodium like it's candy.  My body can handle 1000mg, but when I take my full 1500 dose it kicks my butt.  Literally!

    I hope you feel better soon.

    If you haven't already, check out soulcysters.com.  It's all about pcos.  They have good tips about taking Met.  Personally, it works best for me when I take it all at once right before bed with 2 imodium.

    LOL! I just linked that below.

    I always think of that poor defendent mother when I consider letting my child drive underage. No freaking way.

  • Ok I asked because my husband told our son he could move my car from the barn up to the top of the driveway so he could get his quad out. I freaked out saying there is a law requiring you to be such and age maybe even height.... We've been battling it all night.

    Thanks. I have to buy a BBT thermometer (or is it just BBT lol). I dont know if I have the discipline or the memory to take my temperature each morning, but I'm gonna try! LOL

    Oh, now that I think of it, I do have a question.....what brand do most ladies buy?

    It's easy once you get in the habit.  You can start doing it right away to get used to it, and just "count" it with your new cycle.  I just roll over, stick the thing in my mouth and go back to sleep.  I check the temp after I wake up for real.

    I used the Walgreens brand, but I've heard many people have issues with that one.  I've heard the Target brand on is good.  You could also go online and order one, from Amazon for example.  Anyone is fine, but one with recall is great so you can check your temp after you wake back up.

    GL!!

    Maybe I'll start popping Imodium like its Pez, I've only been taking it when its really bad or I have to go somewhere.

    I have been on soulcysters, it was quite helpful after I was dx. Ever since I moved to 1500mg its been a daily pain! Thanks so much for the advice Riley! I appreciate it!

    I don't see how she didn't kill that other mom. Not bc of just the incident, but bc of what she said after the judgement that "her daughter died because she made stupid decisions".. like handing them keys to a car (leaving them in the car) didn't help that along at all
