Baby--any good details about how TTC almost happened???
Puppy - The supplement I took was Vitex Berry, made by Gaia Herbs (got it at Whole Foods).
The active ingredients were:
Total Alcohol Free Extract (Chase Tree berry/Vitex agnus-castus) = 500mg
Validated Full Spectrum Profile (0.6% Agnuside (from Chase Tree bery) = 3.0mg
Whatever all that means....?
I'm sitting here in my pajamas waiting for my mom to wake up. For some reason I had a nervous energy yesterday (more than likely to do with not wanting to say goodbye to my mom soon) and ended up cleaning a good part of the house, and then wearing my MOM out with bopping around to shops and meals and things. By the time we got home I was quite tired but didn't realize it, and got a bit snappy with her. She could tell I was just tired and told me so...I went to bed and fell asleep immediately! It was one of the deepest sleeps I have had in weeks. Now I want to make sure I'm more "present" and "pleasant" today...but I do feel weird about her leaving. Obviously I'm sad, but I'm also nervous for her as to how it will work out, as well as what she will do once she comes back to the States when the baby is born. It doesn't help that DH's big, annual family weekend at the beach is the weekend right before she leaves...the beach trip was planned long before she even decided she was leaving, so I can't miss out on it. I feel guilty though...(thankfully my sister is flying out to be with her then and help her pack). I know these are mostly her things to worry about but there have definitely been a few years in the recent past where I've been more parent to my mom than vice versa...so I have trouble breaking that habit. Sorry, just needed to write that out I think...
On the plus side, after not moving around too much on Thursday and Friday, baby was plenty active for me yesterday! Yay for fish farts!
Details ... Well we were erm getting a bit close on a rare night to ourselves and we had been discussing it that day ... Just the hour before actually and were ally nearly DTD having agreed how fab it would be for Millie ...then my phone rang, followed by his and the mood was lostn Since then Millie has been a mare! And now OH is all 'I just don't know if I could do all this again' By this he means the tantrums and whines of a tired 3 year old - to be fair she IS hard hard working. Not a bit like my son was and it frightens him I think
Jen - I hope you enjoy the time with your mom. Try not to stress to much and just remember your her baby and she loves you!
D - sounds like you were sooooo close. Hang in there and I bet it will happen before you know it!
As for me, I think we are TTC this month but DH is trying to throw me for a loop. I honestly think he is scared and I understand that, as I'm nervous too. But I remember Jen saying to wait until it was time to try and see how I felt... Well I feel like having a baby lol
Gen - thanks for the info re: vitex. I may have to order some or stop into the health food store soon. I'm getting tired of these cycles!
baby D - sooo close! Keep at it without pressuring and it'll happen - I can feel it!
Jess - Yay for TTC. It's interesting how you just feel like becoming pregnant. I'm there right now, and we are taking no precautions... but, my body isn't doing what it should be so I guess I should take that as a sign eh?!
