TTC, thanks for asking. I'm trying for the more relaxed approach this month but of course it's never that easy. I stopped taking Vitex (and all other supplements) mid cycle this month while trying to figure out what was causing some severe stomach pain. (Figured it out, wasn't the Vitex) but since I stopped it so abruptly I'm afraid I may have messed up my cycle. I'm on cd16 and still no O. (Last 2 months o'd on cd12) I'm extra worried that now I'll end up being on my period when I go on a kid free trip with my dh in the summer. Ugh. Oh well, still "trying" not to stress about it all.

I can't believe you are so far along already! I really hope I can join you all soon. I ache to be pregnant and have another baby. But it's getting harder and harder every month to hope.

For those of you that know what you're having, do you have any names picked out yet?

Luvy, I'm sorry your cycle got screwed up. Hopefully you'll be pregnant on your kid-free trip instead of on your period.

TTC, I'm doing okay. Just super bloated, so I look 4 months pregnant, which is making it really hard to hide my pregnancy. We were hoping to put off announcing until sometime next month, but I don't think that will happen. We're not looking forward to some of the comments our parents are going to make.

Luvy I really hope you don't get your cycle on your trip!!!!! Did your stomach pain improve off the supplements? I hope you ovulate soon! you're often in my thoughts and prayers. I really hope you have a rainbow after all you have been through ❤

Spiffy, I'm sorry you have to worry about people's reactions to your very happy news! It's ridiculous to me the comments people make! It's between you, your husband, and your doctor! Not anyone else! When is your first ultrasound????

Luvy we have names picked either way even though I don't find out until next month ❤ Remi Joy for a girl or Ford Thomas for a boy. My three year old insists it's a girl and he says he doesn't want a boy. So the middle name for our boy name is after Thomas the Train

Luvy I hope you ovulate that lucky egg asap! I did the same although I trialled guaifenesin in the same cycle I stopped all meds, ready to start clomid and guaifenesin the next month. Didn't think for a minute that it would be a BFP cycle!
I ovulated quite a bit later than usual, my fertile signs started day 13 (usually 8!) and ovulated around day 16-17 (normally 10-12) so deffo don't write off the longer cycle!!!! Everything crossed for you xxx

Spiffy I'm mega bloated as well, it's crazy. Sometimes my skin hurts it gets so bad! I didn't remember being like this before, but then I always forget the unpleasant side of being pregnant lol. My in laws won't react very well, they never have. They have two grandchildren from their daughter, which is enough for them lol my parents guessed already and are delighted as they wanted a big family but never got one due to infertility and recurrent miscarriages. My dad is from a big Irish family himself.

TTC not long to wait now then! What are you feeling now? Pink?

I find names so hard to pick!

Luv - I'm sorry you still haven't oed I'm in the same boat. It's starting to freak me out. I've had 2 + opks the last 2 days but no temperature spike so no ovulation for me yet

Yesterday I got to hold my friends 2 week old baby. Pretty sure my ovaries tired to explode!!

Luvy, I've got everything crossed that this is your lucky egg!

Swimmy, I hope you O soon!

TTC, my first ultrasound isn't until June 16th, which feels like FOREVER from now. It's been 3 weeks since I found out I was pregnant and I swear these have been the longest 3 weeks ever! I love your names! The Thomas part cracked me up, though.

Dan-o, I'm glad your family is happy for you, at least. It sucks to feel nervous about sharing news that should bring happiness to the people who hear it. As for the bloating, let's pretend it's a girl symptom, because I'd love to have another girl this time.

I did think that spiffy! I'm sure I've never been this bad!

The time drags so bad from finding out early doesn't it
For me I think it's the first tri anxiety of not knowing what's going on in there as well!

Luvy all crossed for a lovely sticky rainbow BFP in about 10 days!!!

Yeah, I always have some bloating but this time it seems particularly bad. This is what my stomach looked like today. Ugh.
