  • If you haven't already made a separate intro, please first do so in a separate discussion thread so we can get to know you! Good luck!

    Sorry for being late on this- I'm down 5 lbs since Saturday. Norovirus sucks and all three of us have it!

  • @Momifbysea sorry about your sickness and hope you feel better.  My MIL had it last year and she said she has never felt that bad.

    I'm guessing I'm in the TWW at this point based soley on EWCM on Saturday.  I have no idea if this is the cycle or not at this point.  I've just accepted I have zero control of this TTC and going with the flow. lol
