I am so glad to hear that your body is doing what itís supposed to be doing without requiring all the stuff like Provera, etc. It DOES sound like you had a progesterone problem and that is easily fixed, so thatís good news! FX that your intuition is right and you get your BFP any day now! Remember when I tested, I was 3 days late and I used an IC and it was SUPER DUPER light. It was a real squinter. I no longer trust ICís!! I immediately used a FRER and it came up blazing, even though it was middle of the day and diluted urine. Iíll keep praying for you and that your BFP happens this month !!!
I thought I was the only one who wanted to drink to get a buzz. OK, I donít just want a buzz, I do want to taste and enjoy the actual drink and no guilt! Only 8 weeks more for youÖIím jealous
Glad to know Iím not the only one suffering from incontinence
The last time I got stung by a bee, was when we were camping last year. We set up a clothesline to dry our bath towels. When it was time for my second shower, I got my 2 towels (I have to use one to wrap my hair up and another to dry my body) and went to the showers. Once I was done, I grabbed one towel and wrapped up my hair. I then grabbed the second towel and started drying off. Started at my feet, moved towel up my calves, started drying my thighs, when OUCHIE! Huge sting. I freaked out and started screaming (I was imagining a huge spider). When I realized it was a bee I brushed it off of my thigh. My SIL was in the stall next to me, bathing herself and my niece. I freaked her the h*ll out. She ran out and I made her come into my stall, remove the bee and remove the stinger. SO, I donít think you are a big baby! I guess the bee was hanging out on my towel. Lesson learned is to always shake out towels before use when camping I was just glad it didnít sting me you-know-where. I mean, thatís HOW CLOSE it was to that area LOL
I am also interested in hearing about the Ďredneck weddingí.
So glad you had a great time at the festival. Free is a bonus!
Wow that is so crazy about what Charlotte said! I totally believe it. Kids are so innocent and open to things that we are closed off to. It sounds like Charlotte is really perceptive.
Such a relief to hear that everything has worked out for you. I know itís hard to believe, but I was really worried about you and your situation After a couple of weeks I shared your cryptic msg with dh. Even heís been asking me for your status every few days.
YAY to more sex I know you and Stef are pretty much the horndogs of our bunch.
I love the name Molly. I have no idea what middle names would go with itÖgots to think about it!
Canít wait to see your picture. And thatís great that youíve got most of your baby stuff ready to go!
Jasmine, I am so happy you and your oh are doing better. I hope it continues and he stays on his meds. I love the name Molly. How about Molly Elisabeth? Can't wait to see your bump!
-The redneck wedding, first off the girl that got married is no more than 30 years old. The guy she married looks like he came right off the set of Duck Dynasty, long gray hear and beard. He looks to be at least 50, now while the age difference is not all that strange, but boy oh boy did they make an odd couple. Anyhow, all of his friends looked like that too. One of them was even the officiant and it was his first ceremony. So needless to say, it did not flow smoothly. Then they listened to a whole song up there, while we could see them talking to each other but didn't really know what was going on. Oh yeah, and it started 20 minutes late. Then after the ceremony, they went outside of the receiving line and we were all given bubbles. But then the couple had to go back inside so that we could blow the bubbles on them for pictures, but with a three year old waiting, we had no bubbles left. Then they did pictures, so we all went back into the auditorium to wait. It took over an hour of everyone just sitting there waiting for the reception and food and stuff. It wasn't awful, but surely there were better ways??
Jasmine - I am really happy to see you back too!! I am glad that things have gotten better in your relationship!! I like angel's suggestion of Molly Elisabeth (my middle name is Elizabeth). I also like the sound of Eva and Molly together.
Vegas - I think its neat how kids are so unknowingly perceptive. I really think they are more open to picking up on things than adults are. It really does emphasize how so many of the things we think are over their heads are actually being processed and thought about by them. Thanks for the prayers. I am open to any positive energy being sent my way!!
I've never had a Christmas where there was no snow. This year we are planning to go to Disneyworld with my husband's family over Christmas. I don't know what I think about the no snow part. I just don't think it will feel like Christmas with no snow!!
Angel Ė That wedding does sound different!! Itís funny you said it wasnít Honey Booboo. That is totally what I was picturing when you said redneck wedding. I have to admit that I did watch Mama June and Sugarbear get marriedÖ..I am a bit of a reality show junkie. As much as I hate to admit it!!
Meli Ė Now you have me thinking about pina coladaís!! Your baby shower will be here before you know it. Nov seems so far away but time has been going by so fast it will be here before you know it!! Sounds like you have a good group planning it and it will be lovely!! I agree that it is weird they streamed the fight when there were so many people there that wanted to watch it (and would have pitched in to order it). Some people are just really cheap!!
Stef Ė Iím glad to hear your scan went so well. Little Sienna is so cute!! Like Meli it took me a minute to make out the picture but once I figured out what was where I could definitely see her clearly. Loved the hand under the chin!! I hope you are having a nice visit with your brother. It sounds like your baby shower went really well in the end!!
AFM Ė So unfortunately I am on to the next cycle. Af arrived yesterday evening. I am just trying to focus on all the positive things that have happened with my body lately. I am discouraged and sad but still hopeful that this new cycle will be the one for me. This is the month I got pregnant last year. My naturopath believes that women tend to have one or two especially fertile times in a year. Since I conceived this month last year maybe this will be my month. If it doesnít happen this month I will have to start thinking about looking at the next options (like IUI or IVF).
Jenk: you'll be here for Christmas! That is so exciting! I'd offer to meet up, but I'm pretty sure my December will be a bit busy. At least you'll see what a non-snowy Christmas looks like (it's awful). Although I've never been to Disney for Christmas there are supposedly some beautiful light displays (Hollywood Studios has like one million lights).
Sorry AF got you, but things are truly moving in the right direction for you. My co-worker, who is 41, had IUI and is now 35 weeks pregnant, so that totally worked for her should you choose to go that route. Like us, she also had a mc before her sticky bean. However it happens for you, I just know it will happen.
Angel: I too pictured some sort of Honey Booboo/Duck Dynasty wedding. Still, I totally understand what you mean. My mom is in the wedding business and I hear all sorts of stories. To each their own!
Afm: I'm starting to wonder how I'm going to cope without sleep again once baby is here. Charlotte's been waking a lot at night and then last night one of the smoke alarms decided that 2am was a good time to remind us it needed a new battery. And all of those are minor compared to a newborns needs throughout the night!
Meli, we live 10-15 from where I'm giving birth, so that's not an issue, although possibly still being at work when I go into labor still makes me nervous!
A lot of women have the peeing issue while pregnant! I've read so many women talking about it that I'm surprised it hasn't happened to me. Do those kegels!
Yay for the bump! So cute!
And yeah, it took me forever to make out what was going on in the ultrasound, too! And she did have her hand resting on her chin, after what looked like sucking her thumb.
jen, glad everything seems to be heading in the right direction! Sorry af came this cycle,
Angel, I've heard of worse weddings! One in particular comes to mind - my friend's brother. It was Ninja Turtle themed... yep. Each groomsmen's outfit coordinated to one of the turtles - blue, orange, purple, red. Those were the colors through the whole wedding. Interesting, to say the least.
Vegas, that IS spooky what Charlotte said! Kids are definitely more open to things than adults are, I think. I'm not sure if I mentioned it here before, but one of the nieces, who just turned 5, has "ghost friends." That's even what she calls them!
Jasmine, soooo glad things are going well with you and OH now and that he's on meds that seem to be helping! I also love the name Molly, it's one of my favorites! I like Angel's suggestion of Molly Elisabeth.
AFM, my brother went home yesterday I'm trying to convince him to move out here, lol. I've been trying that for years. He texted me last night after I fell asleep to tell me his partner said he'd be find with moving out here. I about peed myself with happiness, lol. That's definitely a step in getting him to come! I know my parents want to move out here, too. Would be awesome if they all came! Who knows when, though...
Our second ultrasound on Monday wasn't much more successful than the first. We got a few minutes of video and to see her face just a little more, but most of the time she had her hands (and her feet!) in her face. The pictures look pretty much just like the one I already posted. The ultrasound place isn't happy with not being able to get us at least a solid 8-10 minutes of video, so they rescheduled again (for free!) to my birthday. Little monkey better behave, that'd be a great bday present.
My brother started painting the nursery, just needs one more coat, so that's a lot of work off of Blake's shoulders. All the baby shower stuff is crammed into the office right now, so we need to get the nursery finished soon and the crib set up to get it all out of the office.
Not sure if you guys saw on FB, sweetmomma had her little boy last night!
Going to post again in a few minutes with some pics from the shower and of me/Blake and me/Kenny.
Putting the pics in a spoiler so they don't make the page huuuuge
Blake and me the night of the shower. Sorry for bad lighting, it was outside at night and my brother took it with his phone.
My brother and me on Saturday.
Some presents. Onesies above say "Welcome Baby"
Headband making station. I'm going to have to get pics of them when I can pull all the stuff out of the office, haven't seem them yet. Holly made a headband display thing, I'll have to get a good pic of that, too. And where it says Sienna! is a thing she made too, she painted a yardstick black and made the name out of cardstock. So cute.
Had everyone sign / leave notes on a wooden S to hang in the nursery. I haven't even had a chance to check it out yet! Holly also had prints made and she made the white flowers that I can hang in the room.
Onesie decorating station. Haven't seen many of these yet either!
Sorry to hear the stupid witch came Your naturopathís theory sounds very interesting. Iíve heard of it before. FX that you donít have to use IUI or IVF and spend money. Youíre still young, I know it will happen naturally for you!!
Yikes-what a rude awakening to a blaring alarm at 2am
Thatís funny because dh and I also had a rude awakening (we woke up at 120am). I had the most painful calf cramp EVER. Like, EVER. I was whimpering and trying (not successfully) not to cry. dh woke up and was freaked out because he thought I went into labor or something. He had to massage my leg because I absolutely could not move my leg. 4 separate times he had to massage my leg and straighten it out. He called me at work the next morning to check on me. His last comment was ďYup, I bet youíll need an epidural during laborĒ. WHATEVS! I still am walking funny and it still hurts to flex that leg muscle
Omg that ninja themed wedding takes the cake
FX FX FX that your brother and your parents move out closer to you
Boo to not getting better pix this time, but at least youíll be able to go back for more and get your fix
Thatís awesome that your brother was able to paint the nursery. Iím sure Blake appreciated it.
Your shower turned out so beautiful. Your friend Holly really went all out for you and Sienna. And you and oh look so cute
Stef: your shower looks like it was amazing and so original too. You look great pregnant. Lucky girl! Wow, I can't believe you are getting another ultrasound session. That is awesome!
Meli: the dreaded pregnancy related Charlie horse! I got my first one Tuesday night. It's been a rough week for sleep. When they come on DON'T point your toes, but flex them up instead. It'll just cramp more if you point. I've done everything to prevent them, but they still happen. Sorry you are getting them too.
Sweetmomma: if you are still reading this thread; congratulations!
Afm: I'm doing fine. I go for my glucose screening on Monday. I actually went this past Tuesday, but forgot my paperwork and was sent away. Oops! It's been in my purse ever since so I can't forget it.
Meli, I had to lol at your DH saying you'll need an epi because of your leg cramp, sorry!
That's what I figured about the ultrasound - she offered us a small discount or another visit, of course I chose the visit!
Meli and vegas, Holly did a great job for the shower, especially considering all the changes that were made and how hard it was to keep in touch with Blake's mom for planning. I keep telling her she should become a party planner, she'd be amazing. She got all the decoration ideas from my Pinterest.
vegas, aww thanks! I keep having people tell me I have the pregnancy glow, I just don't really see it!
And you're definitely right about not pointing toes when the cramps come on, it's a lovely way to get your foot stuck like that and your leg in more pain (at least for me!). I get the cramps fairly often, boooo, but I also always have trouble staying properly hydrated.
Good luck at your glucose screening!
I am soooo uncomfortable at work today. Finding it hard to breath, pain under my ribs, my butt hurts... not uncommon, but much worse than normal... Bleh. Maybe it's from not having to be here the last 4 days, body rebelling, lol who knows. Idk how I'm going to make it to 39 weeks here...
