Almost forgot; AF arrived this morning. I made it a full 10 days, so that's better than last month. I also cut two whole weeks off of last cycle 39 vs 53 days. Insane right! To think I used to hate my 33 day cycles. Hoping this last cycle before ttc is a little more normal.
That is great. My cycle this past time would have been 38 or 39. Normal for me is 35, and it sucks. So much time waiting to o and less chances to try than others.
And Stef, that ring is beautiful. He did a great job!
If you ladies like scary movies you should watch Sinister. Creeped my shit right out!!!!
vegas, I am excited to have it back! Word of advice - never get jewelry sized around Valentine's Day. I'm not sure if that's the reason but I'm sure it had something to do with the 2 week time period for sizing!
What sucks more about the shower head breaking is now I'm stuck using the other shower that has a sucky shower head with low water pressure until we get a replacement! It almost doubles my shower time because it takes sooooo long to rinse my hair out.
Yep, that's how I used to get the UTIs! I'm worried about getting one now because we've been without a bathroom at work on and off for about a month now. I can leave to go somewhere but it's just such a hassle... I end up holding it all day

Sorry for those that read my journal and had to read that twice!!
We're avid horror fans here. OH and I saw Sinister in theaters when it came out. It was better than I expected.
AFM, I totally dirty texted OH at work this morning. He got some very special special kisses last night, no work done on his part, so I made it very clear what I want tonight. Hehehe.
Today is my CD8 so we’ll start with SMEP today. Try not to suffer from withdrawals from us (like Angel mentioned). I know what she means...I feel the same way!
You make a good point about not going to another OB appt without DH. I’ve decided the same thing! DH works from home most of the time so the scheduling shouldn’t be a problem. But FIRST I have to get pg!! Here I am getting ahead of myself again….sigh......
YAY to lengthening your luteal phase and a shorter cycle! 39 v 53 days is a huge difference-almost half a cycle!!
Ughh to what you mentioned about the thyroid, I need to look at what my thyroid was before I got pg and compare to current number..
So glad your numbers came back great!!! YAYYYYYYY
Ooohhh we saw Sinister last weekend, and it WAS totally creepy!! DH is not easily creeped out, but even he was creeped out by it!!
oh yea, just realizing that in my last post I wrote to Angel about the ring being beautiful. DUh! I meant to write that to you!! That's what happens when I try to post in a hurry, and from work lol!
Sorry to hear about the shower head breaking off. That’s happened to me before and caused a mess in the shower--water shooting EVERYWHERE! You almost drowned, huh? You poor thing…glad you survived it lol!
I’m guessing that the mulch was put to help with gardening/conserving water when you water the plants/bushes/trees?
Your OH’s questions are funny…"Why would you talk about that on a forum?" HA! If he only knew the things we talk about…better make sure he never reads these conversations! I realized a long time ago that I need to make sure DH doesn’t read these (especially my) entries! He’d be mortified!!
Yay to the special kisses to butter him up for tonight!! JUMP HIM!
Nothing much going on today. Hoping I get the detailed CD3 lab results very soon, maybe by Saturday? I’ve started eating grapefruit daily, have 8 left to go before I finish them! I also received the progesterone cream I ordered last Friday. HOLY crap! That container is lots smaller than I expected. And I paid $33 for it??!! CRAZY! This stuff better work lol!
SUPPOSEDLY, today is the day that they will be finished with my yard. What’s left is the sealing of the stained concrete, and installing the tile on the front doorway/porch. It sounds like an ambitious list for 1 day, so I’m not too excited yet. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s pushed out another day. I just want to hurry up and plant my garden!
Crap, just tried to reply and hit something that took me to a thread about plus sized girls TTC. WTF?
Meli: sounds like you are all ready to go. Hope your dh is ready! Btw, I'm guessing it will be two days before your yard is done. I expect they will need to come back to grout the tile.
Stef: you have no bathrooms at work? I'm not sure that is even legal. And I agree about Valentines being the busiest time of year at the jewelers. But you've got it back now!
Angel: I like scary movies, but I get scared so easily. Not sure if I'll watch it or not (again, I'm a wimp).
I'm sad again today. My dh's cousin's wife (can you follow that) just announced on FB that she is pregnant with her third son. He's due two days after my angel. The worst part is that she included a photo of herself in profile. I was looking at the post on my phone and before I saw the caption or the belly I was thinking about how much she looks like me. It should be me. It's not me..... In other news, I'm bleeding like crazy. Much heavier than it used to be. Also cramping a lot. Could do without that.
DH should be ready. He’s always in the mood, and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel for the end of the project has def put him in an all around better mood. Finally! Sometimes poor DS will send me the following texts when he arrives home after school. “Red alert! Red alert!” That’s code for “Beware. someone’s in a BAD mood” lol!
Yup, I’m sure you’re right. That makes sense now. They will have to come back to grout the tile!
I’m also a wimp for scary movies, but I can’t help myself! As long as I’m not alone I can watch them. But I can't watch them by myself! He likes watching them cuz then I’ll lay down with him on the chaise lounge. I prefer to sit in my own ‘section’ of the sectional, and will only lay down with him when scary movies are on. He emanates lots of heat, so I get hot really quickly, then he starts to get distracted and not watch the movie (*ahem*, IYKWIM) lol!
Maybe your cramping and bleeding more than usual is a good sign, a sign that your uterine lining is building up nice and thick?
Sorry that you’re down. I would feel the same with the news. It’s just too close to him with similar EDD’s. Big hugs…
So how's everyone doing today? I had to stay home because Charlotte is sick. She has a pretty high fever and is coughing so I kept her home. I figure since I am home I can clean the house and organize the closets (or sit on the computer and play all day). So far I've cleaned out the spice cabinet and made a big batch of Chex mix to snack on. Looks like it is going to be a pretty dull day. Just hoping Charlotte improves some so she can enjoy the weekend.
Meli, yeah I don't think OH believed me about how much water shot straight into my face until he tried wetting his hair using the busted head. Haha, karma!
Honestly, I don't think the seller was thinking about gardening when he put the mulch in, I think he was thinking about the cheapest thing he could possibly do! He did that a lot, we're finding out the longer we live there. Mostly little stuff that can be lived with or easily fixed, thank goodness.
Lol! Yeah I definitely need to keep OH from reading our convos! But babe, if you find this, you're a sex god and your swimmers are mini Olympians. My little suck up comment to butter him up there.
Lol at your DH getting distracted watching movies! OH and I both do if we try watching movies in the bedroom. I honestly don't think we've EVER gotten through a movie while trying to watch it in the bedroom!
And for jumping him last night... totally did!
vegas, yeah, they're doing renovations at work. I know, it doesn't sound like it's legal. We can leave to go to the bathroom and not mark down a lunch break or anything, but seriously... shouldn't there be a porta-potty or something? It's happened on and off for quite awhile now, first there was an issue where they couldn't get the main water valve to shut off because it was broken, so we couldn't use the bathroom for awhile because of the renovations. Now the bathroom is torn out and being replaced.
I understand being sad! I've gone through the same thing with people's announcements. I dread seeing them lately.
I hope that Charlotte starts feeling better ASAP!
AFM... officially in the tww! BD'd last night, hoping he's down to do it again tonight (who am I kidding, it's not if he's down to BD, it's if he doesn't decide special kisses ending is better, lol). Something tells me he wants to be pg again and the talk of wanting to wait is just fear of something happening again. He knows my cycle almost as well as I do, so he does know when I'm o'ing. I stuck with my word and didn't use any OPKs this month.
Also, we replaced the low pressure showerhead with a nice one we picked up last night. It's awesome, removable with the different massage functions. And it actually has good pressure now, yay! He put the crappy one in the other bathroom for now.
Stef: No opks-you brave girl! I'm so excited that you are in the tww. I'm not sure how I would feel if my dh read my posts. I think he'd just be happy that I am no longer discussing this stuff with him on a regular basis. He knows that I still get sad sometimes, but I think he's out of things to say about it. As far as talking about bd'ing, I know he'd prefer less talk and more action! We've been married a long time and together forever so our love life is pretty tame at this point. We never make it though a movie either if we watch in bed, but this is only because dh will fall asleep. See what I mean?
Sorry to hear Charlotte is sick. FX you don’t catch it!!! I hope she gets better soon!
Wow, you’re good to organize closets on a day off. I need to wash windows soon..maybe one of these weekends I’ll rope DS into helping me. He’s always down to earn some extra $.
You’re funny about less talk and more action! And how dh will fall asleep on you. I’m the same way--I’m the one always falling asleep. Then again, I do wake up 2-2 ½ hours earlier than him on weekdays..
I know what you mean about the seller using cheap stuff. Our house is about 25 years old, and it had one owner before us. It didn’t have any upgrades at all. You could tell the builder used the CHEAPEST materials/finishes. Little by little we’ve had stuff done…replaced inside doors 4 years ago, replaced windows 3 yrs ago, replaced closet doors and the front door 1 year ago, installed crown moulding throughout the whole house 6 mos ago, installed plantation shutters and did the stained concrete and walkway recently. Little by little we’re turning it into a house we really really love. It’s a modest house, and could have ‘upgraded’ years ago, but I’m so glad we didn’t! we’ve also used that conversation as a ‘teachable moment’ with DS. He asked why didn’t we buy a new, better, bigger house? My response was :”just because you CAN, doesn’t mean that you DO. There is no need to get into more debt and possibly overextend ourselves just because we ‘can’ or ‘want’ to.” We love not being in ridiculous debt, the house will be paid off in abt ten more years (DH refinanced into the 15 year loan a few years ago). It more than doubled our payment but it was for the best so that we could get finished paying it off much quicker. We also love our street (it’s a cul-de-sac) and love our neighbors.
Luv’d your suck up comment to OH just in case! FX you caught the egg!! Good for you sticking to your word and not using opks. I just started using mine-since CD8! I’m terrified of missing the egg again!! I don’t know if I will o CD 12 or CD14 or somewhere in between!
Ughh, got another call from my dr. again. She said they still aren’t comfortable with the views from the 2nd mammogram, they want me to go back for a 3rd time, this time for an ultrasound. I’m fine with that. As long and they don’t have to manhandle me again!! The last mammogram really really hurt..I still have bruising on the top of my boob! I'm truly traumatized from the experience lol
My niece is being dropped off at my work this afternoon and she is spending the weekend with us. I am taking her to a play tomorrow at our local community college. “Ramona Quimby”. I loved reading those books at her age! I’m actually looking forward to the play myself. Hopefully I get a chance to do some gardening, maybe not the new huge front section but at least be able to plant some pretty flowers around our tree. Then Sunday our neighbor’s are having a surprise bday party for the wife.
Vegas, I'm feeling like not using OPKs was more crazy than brave, lol. I was soooo tempted to use one yesterday because I THINK I o'd then (based on last two times and some minor cramping it seems I may have a day late again, cycle changed by a day after mc maybe?). I used to be able to tell EASILY, the cramping was very obvious, always on one side and made me mildly nauseous. Yesterday I had some pinchy cramps, but I'm pretty sure it was o'ing. Odd thing is it started on the left then I had some on the right. I almost always have some cramping on the left for pretty much everything since the first mc, but never on the right.
How is Charlotte feeling? Hope you didn't catch whatever she has!
Meli, the guy that sold us this house bought it last summer and redid everything, but he went cheapo for the most part. It all LOOKS nice, but it's cheaper quality stuff. That isn't really a problem usually (e.g. he used laminate flooring instead of wood, which I'm ok with), but with things like putting the mulch up against the house, a showerhead that breaks off after two weeks... it's annoying.
That's definitely a good lesson for DS. There really isn't a point in buying a new home when you are happy where you are! We probably could have pulled off getting a bigger house with more expensive upgrades, but then we would be in so much more debt. We love the area we're in, and although the house needs some work done to it, that's just going to make it that much more special to us!
Glad you don't have to have your boobs manhandled again! I'm totally not looking forward to mammograms... I'm tiny up top so I imagine it won't be much fun! Did she give you any idea why she isn't happy with what they're seeing in the mammograms?
AFM, got to bd again last night! I'm currently waiting for our new bed to be delivered. And I should be working on that website, but I'd rather be on here, lol. I was just trying to respond before my laptop died and I had two cats hovering around me trying to get my coffee and cereal. Seriously, it was liking watching someone swat away flies. I'd tell one to go away, the other would come up and try to get my cereal. I'd move my cereal, the other one would go at my coffee. It lasted a good 5 minutes before I closed the laptop and walked away from them, lol.
I've been obsessed lately with a song... "Turning Page" by Sleeping at Last. I've never seen any of the Twilight's or read any of the books and have no plans to, but the soundtracks are amazing. I could play this song on repeat for hours on end (and have!). Even the instrumental version is amazing.
