Re: TFAS Week of 9/9

  • I'll be back for tags this afternoon!

    What number are you trying for? 2

    Month/Cycle? 3/3

    WTO/TWW? WTO

    Ages of other child(ren)? 19 months

    Any thoughts about this cycle? it's CD 2 which means I'm out for May, so I'm officially starting the June hype. I'm starting OPKs this cycle too in addition to temping and charting.

    Any questions? Nah.

    Rant/Rave/Brag: DD had a lot of fun playing with my nephews this weekend. We all went to the park around 4 on Saturday as a family (my parents, brother, SIL, their two boys DH, myself, and DD). They all played pickle ball on the courts and I took the 3 kids to the playground nearby. The kids had a blast! DD is finally going up and down the slide all by herself (she slides down on her tummy, feet first every time which is super adorable)! She loves being outside and had so much fun, she didn't even care that she ended up eating dinner an hour later than normal. She was asleep within 5 minutes of my putting her to bed that night.

    GTKY: What TV mom are you most like (or would you most like to be)? Oooh that's a really hard question. I honestly don't know that I can think of anything.

  • @jennifer_louise I'll probably test toward the end of the week.  I don't have betas scheduled because I prefer to just do an at home test and then worry about paying for betas if it's positive.  I usually buy pregnancy tests in bulk off Amazon, but these last few cycles I haven't in hopes of it taming my crazy, however, I go to the same Walgreens every time and I always think "this will be the last time for this... hopefully"

  • @mokay19 everything crossed for you. That's adorable your daughter wanted to keep on sleepin' ...why do they never do that on Saturday mornings, huh?? lol

    @gingermama29 I really really really hope I get to join you in June :) June is a good month to be born! (my birthday is in June hehe). I think I'm going to order OPKs too.

    @jennifer_louise I'm sorry you're feeling out :( and that the store was so upsetting. You really don't have to stay positive all the time - nobody is positive all of the time, and it's so helpful to see others not faking positivity so people know they're not alone. <3

  • @saladflambe your DD in her toddler bed is SO sweet. She looks so happy and proud!
    saladflambe
  • @bows22 it's the most excited/willing to go to bed that I've ever seen her  :D ...of course, she didn't nap at all this weekend, but she just kept bringing books into her bed, and that's fine by me.

    How cool would it be if your #2 had a due date 8 days after your bday :) fingers and toes crossed

  • @saladflambe adorable, she looks so happy!! I'm glad she likes it. The transition to toddler bed was really smooth for us too, although now sometimes she makes MH put the mattress on the floor so she can have a "sleepover".

    @bows22 it seems like all the stars are aligning for June!! And wow, I love your GTKY answer. I always loved her, she had those three boys and always kept her wits about her.

  • @mokay19 great job holding out on the BSC that the TWW can bring!!  :D Only a few more days to go!!!

    @gingermama29 sounds like a great weekend! JUNE JUNE JUNE!!  PS - June babies are awesome!

    @jennifer_louise I come across moments like that... triggers about when I got KU with DS or when I was preggers with him. 7 years later and I still get all the feels, even more so when you're trying again. Hang in there <3

    @saladflambe I hope your AF gets her ish together so you can move onto your next cycle... even better, I hope you just O'd late and that you're really KU!  Yay for the big girl bed! Look how happy she is!

    @tyrion_ Yes for another Beverly!! I'm sorry about AF and the back to school tantrums. I hope the morning routines kick back in for them soon.

    @bows22 OMG Jill from Home Improvement!!! What a great show!! That's a great mom to take after! I just hope YH doesn't take after Tim  :D

  • I just thought of another mom I’m like. Anne Carlson from Working Moms. Especially her anxiety and worse case scenario thinking. My husband is also so sweet and amazing and sometimes I can’t with him, much like her and Lionel. 

    @kpearse99 Happy anniversary!

  • @jennifer_louise I was so excited when I figured out the 8 days coincidence that I couldn’t wait to tell you guys! At least it’s helping to keep my spirits up through AF?

    @tyrion_ I’m sorry this wasn’t the cycle for you. You’ll just have to settle for June, okay?

    @kpearse99 oh my gosh those pictures!! I don’t think you posted on the wedding dress thread but you dress was so gorgeous! happy anniversary! 
  • @bows22 there’s a wedding dress thread??!! 😱😱😱 how did i miss that??!
    and thank you!!!

  • @kpearse99 it was last month! I think it was just called “GTKY Thursday” or whatever day of the week it was so that’s probably why you missed it! 
  • @bows22 One of my favorite people ever was born in June. And she’s the chillest kid ever (except this morning). I’ll most def take another June baby! 
  • @tyrion_ I'd happily take another June baby too! DS is pretty easy going!!

  • Back for tags. I think I figured out my TV mom: Amy Matthews from Boy Meets World.

    @mokay19 glad your DD had a fun sleepover. Pajama days at daycare are the best!

    @jennifer_louise I'm sorry you had a difficult time in the store. Glad you mostly had a good weekend though.

    @saladflambe that's such a cute picture. Is she loving her big girl bed?

    @bows22 it was funny that she goes down that way because when I helped her down the slide the first several times, she was sitting. Must just be more comfortable for her. That's so cute how yours says "hand" though. And yay for her doing well at swim lessons! It's so fun to do that with them!

    @tyrion_ sorry you're out for May. All the June hype!! Sorry for a rough start to the day with the kids. I definitely love the screaming mandrakes line though.

    @kpearse99 happy anniversary! Those pictures are stunning and adorable! 💕 I'm sure that day was so special for him too!

  • @mokay19  - I can't believe you haven't tested on 11 dpo!  More power to you.  When would you expect AF?

    @saladflambe - congrats on the big girl bed!  My son has not yet tried to climb out of his crib so we've been hesitant to move him out of his cage *cough* I mean crib *cough*

    @bows22 I haven't thought about Home Improvement in so long!

    @tyrion_  I'm sorry you didn't get good news this cycle.  It can be really crushing.  I agree with Anne Carlson - I was going to say her!  Buy my husband is not at all like Lionel.

    @kpearse99 Happy Anniversary!

    @jennifer_louise - fx for you this cycle, I also think how ridiculously easy I got pregnant with my son and then we were shocked when we had no luck with fertility treatments.

    What number are you trying for? 2

    Month/Cycle? month 12, s/p 3 IUIs and 1 failed IVF cycle, now TTC without medical intervention month/cycle 1/1

    WTO/TWW? WTO

    Ages of other child(ren)? 2, almost 3

    Any thoughts about this cycle? My husband is going away CD12 - 14.  As far as I know I've always been a "late" ovulator, hoping this holds true...

    Any questions? Do you all have a cervix opening that's bigger than it was before?  I actually checked my cervix for the first time since having my son and it felt so open that I thought I might be ovulating on CD7.  Seriously.  Does this still work with TTC #2?

    Rant/Rave/Brag: I looked at my old charts and discovered that I used to ovulate on CD 19-20.  I don't know if this will still hold true a few years later but booo long cycles.

    GTKY: What TV mom are you most like (or would you most like to be)? I was going to say Anne Carlson from Workin Moms but @tyrion_ said her so I'll have to think of someone else...
  • @penelope4612 I only haven’t tested because I don’t want a mindf*#k from the trigger!  Also, it’s possible that your cycles have changed, but my cervix doesn’t fully close until a few days after AF ends

  • @penelope4612 tiring is a great word for it - that's exactly what it is. sigh

    Hi everyone, I am back after a couple months hiatus due to being benched for uterus surgery! I love this GTKY!

    I feel a bit like Julie Bowen's character on Modern Family. My husband is the absent minded professor type and I am tightly wound and always trying to keep things together.

    Going back to getting caught up with everyone now!! 😊

  • I wanted to share that since moving Emma into her big-girl bed, the last few nights, she's been asking to go to bed 30 min early ... I'm totally jinxing myself by sharing this, of course... but yeah... if I'd have known this would be the result, I'd have done it forever ago  :D -- she just stays up there quietly reading for a while before she falls asleep. :) 

    But now I'm totally jinxed so
