    Everything crossed for you that you get a bfp. What a great bday present that would be for your mom.

    Nice guilty pleasure. I love to read in bed myself. I'll have to add chocolate to the mix. That would make it even more amazing.

    Samjen - Hope you are doing well today!

    ZAngel - How are you this week lady? Do you feel like your timing has been good? Hopefully you will see CH?s in the next day or two.

    I have no idea what is going on with my chart.  Everything has been so strange this cycle.  My chart is now showing that I'm 5dpo although my post O temps are a lot lower than usual.  I'm just not sure what is happening.  I kinda wish I could just end this cycle and start a new one.  Can I get a do over? :lol:

    Favorite guilty pleasure - Chocolate brownies... actually, just chocolate in general.

    I'm doing okay, just trying to focus on work and get caught up. DH and I finally talked on Monday and we both have things we need to work on, but we're much better.  

    As for my cycle, I'm officially a week late on my period,  but still getting BFN's.  With this potential new job on the horizon it would probably be better for me to not be KU right now since I wouldn't have health insurance right away and what not.  So if I am indeed out this cycle, which I think I am, we will probably TTA or NTNP for awhile in case I do get this job.

I think this will be our last cycle for a while if things don't work out. I'll be around the board still occasionally, but if this isn't it, DH and I agree that we need a brain break from all of this stress. So hopefully everything works out and we don't have to worry about a break.QOTW: I really love watching MTV reality shows! That and snacking on junk before DH gets home for supper.

    ~*~All AL Welcome~*~


  • EDD last week was hard. Held it together at work and then went home to down a bottle of wine with dh and cried lots of tears.

    It is actually worth giving in to the misery so healing/regrouping can start.

    Waiting on AF. She is 5 days late. Tons of CM, high temps blah blah blah. So crazy that I actually tested this morning. BFN of course. My cycle may just be longer than usual after the c/p last cycle. I need AF to come so I get some additional tests done!

    I'm so glad you and DH talked and that you are working on things. That's great to hear. Any more news about the job yet? I really hope this works out for you. It's nice that this came along so that you won't feel too disappointed if you aren't KU this cycle. Although, I'm still stalking your chart and would love to see a BFP this month.

  • Hi samjen! Thanks for the check in.

    Lindsayhilleary - How are you feeling? Sorry about AF showing up. ((hugs))

     

     

     

     

     I'm feeling alright. CD1 is always hard, even when I know it's coming, but I've picked myself up since then.

    My 30th birthday is looming (July 3) and this will be my last cycle to get pregnant before I turn 30. I really wanted to have a baby in my arms by that time, but right now I'd be thrilled to have a baby in my womb. (wouldn't we all) 

    I hope you guys have a wonderful day. (((HUGS))) to everyone who needs them! 

    ETA: Guilty Pleasure: Hookah. I very rarely do it, but completely enjoy it when I do.

  • Thanks for running the checkin samjen, how are you?

    I am okay for the most part, I guess. Honestly I feel awful. I can't wait for this EDD to be over with. I didn't expect it to be as hard as it is right now.
    I am still waiting for AF to show her face not bothering with keeping track or charting since I am benched for 6 months. Just hoping it flies by and my appointment Tuesday will bring some answers.

    ETA sorry about the quick responce ladies. It is my first day bat my new job and I am just checking when I have free time. Hope everyone is well and I will be back to give support as soon as able.

    Sjelwood - We missed you last week, how are things? Are you doing anything special for your EDD?
     

    Hi samjen, and ladies-- sorry I've missed the check in lately, life has been crazy with a job transition and move, and now I'm finally settled into our new home and getting into a routine.  I posted yesterday needing some advice on how to deal with my EDD, and after reading the responses I think I want to do something in memory of my angel, and just allow myself to be sad.  I'll talk to DH when he gets home tomorrow (yay!) from his business trip, but I'd love to plant a tree or make a garden stone.  I agree with the others who have said they didn't realize they would be this sad.  

    Question OTW - What is your favorite guilty pleasure?

    Ridiculous reality shows!  My DH can't believe I watch them, but it's funny to me.  Dance Moms, Kardashians, Teen Mom 2....yeah, that one's bad.....

  • Thanks for running the check in. Sorry I am getting on the bump late tonight (it was a busy day at work followed by happy hour). I am going to spend some of Saturday planting a few flowers to put out on our deck. I am going to play the rest of the day as it comes. I have come to terms with my loss but still think about the what ifs frequently. My husband will be gone on that morning so I will have a little time to myself be sad. Other than that I am just trying to remain hopeful for the future.

    My guilty pleasure: I love cake batter ice cream from Coldstone! I also love watching reruns of Friends and Greys Anatomy. 

    **BFP#1 9/5/12   EDD 5/15/13  changed to 5/25/13 after u/s,  missed mc 10/19/12.  D and C 10/22/12**

    ~RPL testing results from 12/6/13 show everything normal except elevated prolactin. Blood work is now in the normal range. All AL welcome!
