Laus, such a wonderful picture. Thanks for sharing!!!

Cassidy- good job on the POAS, unless you have been testing and not telling us. PS. when will you test next?

I was too scared to test today! After I took my temp and it came down a bit. I keep getting AF cramps but off and no, not constant and haven't taken Advil for them. I told myself if temps are good tomorrow morning and no sign of AF then Ill test tomorrow, but mentally I keep wanting to push it to Thur.

Thanks gals! Well I am still inclined to a boy....DH is convinced he saw a winkle but I think he is flattering himself as it was the same size as the babies leg!!! Lol!

I know, now it feels quick but it seemed to drag in the middle weeks.

Laus - What an awesome pic! I love it!!! I still think girl for you, but like I said before, I have awful intuition! LOL!

Julie - I am anxious to hear how your appointments go. It is awesome that you are taking these steps and being proactive about your health and taking charge of your reproduction! Kudos to you, lady!

Nikki - I felt crampy the day before my BFP, so it really doesn't mean much, ESPECIALLY if they don't feel the same as they usually do.

Cassidy - How is DF feeling? And how are you feeling in the AF dept? Any signs that she will arrive this week?

AFM, second day of headache... I can't tell if it is a bad tension headache or a mini-migraine... I feel like crappppp.... Tylenol doesn't do $*it...

And here is something I have been thinking about that I haven't told you ladies yet (I think Kyla is the only one I told...).
I have bipolar disorder and take daily medication to keep myself stable. I take a medication called Lamictal that stabilizes my mood (prevents wild swings), and I take an anti-depressant called Celexa to keep my OCD in check and prevent disturbing thoughts that cause BAD anxiety. I am on a low dose of the antidepressant, and have been told it is VERY safe to take until the third trimester, then I can start right away again after the baby is born and it is very safe.

When I was pregnant with my son, I had a HORRIBLE first trimester as I was undiagnosed and unmedicated. I almost had to be admitted and take a stress leave from work. The hormones caused havoc with my moods. When I told my psychiatrist I wanted to get pregnant, we worked on a medication plan. We started lowering my doses of the lamictal so now I am down to a half-dose and so far so good. He said the only risks with this drug is a *very* small chance of cleft-lip/cleft-palet, but no neural or developmental risks.

Anywho, come my appointment last Tuesday, and my OB sets me up with an appointment for a genetic counselor to discuss the risks of taking the lamictal. I am scared! I know it is best for me to NOT stop taking my meds! It would be dangerous for me and BABY. I emailed my psychiatrist and told him I don't know why I have to see the genetic counselor if he told me the truth about the risks. He said to go, because not knowing is more scary than being assured the risks are minimal.

Part of me just feels like they are trying to scare me into stopping my meds... what kind of position does this put me in? Stop my meds against my psychiatrists recommendations? WHICH in itself could be dangerous, as stopping an anti-convulsant mood stabilizer can cause seizures! I just have a feeling the appointment is going to cause me more anxiety than I already have...

Sorry for the novel. I just wanted to share.
