Re: Weekly checkin in March 11

  • @rspalding001 - I pretty much take every weekend off re: cooking.  lol  We're terrible with eating out a lot on the weekends...lunch, dinner, you name it.

    TTC#1 on and off since 9/2014

    I'm taking prenatals, monitoring CM.

    Possibly 1 DPO.

    This is the most hopeful I've been in a while because it's the most we've been BDing and also H is initiating and taking charge of it, rather than it all falling on me.  I have my first RE appointment on Wednesday so I'm hopeful for that as well.

    Tomorrow H and I are taking his mom shopping.  I do enjoy hanging out with her but it gets very tiring because she has to look at everything in the store it seems.  Other plans include some spring cleaning I think...mainly cleaning the carpets now that the puppy is house-trained.

    2. TTC #5 (#1 for fiancé) since 8/2014 (recurrent loss)

    3. Prenatals, Vit. D, omega-3's, CoQ10, calcium/magnesium/zinc, opk's, preseed, Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) diet (it's been almost 4 weeks now), lots of stretching and some yoga poses, Epsom salt baths, castor oil packs up to ovulation for myself and fiancé. 

    4. Cd 6. Last cycle was only 25 days, so I have no idea when I'll O. Gonna start opk's on Sunday. 

    5. It will be interesting to see how this month goes. I don't expect to magically conceive, I guess now that we're going on 13mo since the last time I conceived I'm feeling like until I get to a dr to get my hormones in check, I'm kind of out of the game. Currently I do not have the insurance I need to see the naturopath or RE, so we are talking about eloping in the next few weeks, if only just to have our marriage documented with the state, and then keep it to ourselves until we have our actual wedding. I don't know. I have mixed feelings about that. Part of me secretly hopes I get pg without any need for having to force nuptials at such a stressful time. We've really been through it lately with my man's health. 

    QOTW: No real plans for this weekend, I need new makeup so maybe a mall trip with one of my childhood besties that happened to move out here a little after I did :)
    I could use some girl time.

    TTC#1 since November 2015

    prenatals, BD every other day from CD 8-18

    I'm on CD 14

    We are in the thick of buying and selling a house and I have been sick for the last two days. I'm not really hopeful about this cycle due to stress levels and my not sleeping well the last two nights. Plus I'm to the point where I'm sure something is wrong with one of us. My SO was supposed to have a SA done last week, but with all the house stuff that has been delayed. 

    This is my weekend on at work, but I'm debating calling in. So I will either be working all weekend or sleeping. Ha.

    Yay @MollySm!!!! so happy to hear, congrats!! T&P for a happy smooth 9 months! Keep us updated :)

    Last time I checked in, I was still benched and waiting for 2nd normal AF before I could get back in TTC game. AF arrived couple days ago, so now WTO. Hearing the BFP successes keeps me positive :)
