    Sweet Jamie! I'll see ya over there!

    Sorry ladies for the temporary hi-jack! I realized as soon as i posted i probably should've pm'd....

    I took my final opk of the month and got another big fat neggo! (CD23)...I am going to try to remain positive and count cd17's cuz that was the darkest i ever got.
    So, going by that logic, I would be about 5 or so days into the 2WW...hmm, i dunno tho, maybe i'll see if DH is willing to give it one more round for extra insurance! (he thinks i'm trying to kill him! lol)

    Hey Karen~~WELCOME!! I'm sending you tons of baby dust :dust::dust::dust::dust: (my fertile window is closed for the month so I'm defintely not using it!) hehe

    Spacegirl~~you're advice to Elvis to plan a trip in order to get the BFP is too funny~~that's what I just suggested to DH!! The last time I saw a BFP it was eight weeks before I was to embark on a study abroad program to Istanbul!
    (unfortunately for my case--after I withdrew from the program and everyone went on, I lost my baby =( ....however, I am so grateful I wasn't in Istanbul when that happened...)

    Dh & I are in the same boat Elvis~~we usually start planning a small May trip (for the 2 of us) right around this time and something for the family in July.....but this year we are holding off on our trip and have blacklisted all amusement parks for the family trip! How's that for wishful thinking?

    BUT, if we were to buy a big amusement park package deal~~I'm sure to get a BFP!! (it'd be worth it!)


    fx fx fx fx fx fx fx & :dust: to all

    hey there twoweekswait~~welcome both to BnB & to the thread for awesome people over thirty! Looks like you just made it, hehe!

    I wish you and your DH the best of luck~~I know 6 months can feel like FOREVER in ttc-land! (hell, I'm trying to wait till at least friday to test and that FEELS LIKE FOREVER!!)

    My LMP was the 7th--so it looks like we are close in cycle! (mines about 31-33 days tho)

    Hope you start feeling better soon....BUT, (& not to get hopes up too much) I've read a few times how women feel like they are getting a cold/flu/sinus issues in the early parts of their pg.

    keeping my fingers Xed for ya!!

    >Spacegirl, I'm almost ready to plan a trip JUST TO MAKE ME THINK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE FOR A MINUTE!! now i'm at the 1WW and I woke up today at 5 am--boobs felt sore and now there is no way i can go back to sleep! what do i do for the next dang week???

    I'm having lunch w a girlfriend today who lives 5 hours away--we are meeting halfway and I haven't even talked to her at all about our ttc (and I don't really plan to as she is recnetly dvrc'd, no children and suspects that she is infertile)--but the truth is, and this is pathetic--TTC has consumed 95% of my mental energy since that last stupid BFN in the beginning of Jan., so WTH am i going to talk about??
    I guess today, it's all about her!

    Im 38, df is 41 trying to conceive #4. Have ds 16, dd 15, & ds 6. Only last month we discussed trying for a fourth. Got 3 pos on a test, unfortunately we then got negs and af arrived on 31st. Seeing those 2 little lines even if they were very faint have convinced us to go for it.

    Look forward to chatting to you all

    Hi

    My husband and I are both 34 - we've flipped flopped enough on TTC #1 (him more than me) and it's time! we're both on board but now but it seems that something always interferes with our getting down to it week - sigh. family issues, he's gets sick, I get sick.

    I'm sick of waiting and next month I'm going to be all over that boy.

    I think I'm becoming obsessed - hence why I'm here and interested in what others are doing during their TTC time.

    here's to everyone trying - I hope the next two months are great!

    here's a feel good story - i have a friend who was trying for years - tried everything and gave up and guess what - yep she's 6 weeks along now.

    it helped me realize that talking to people in similar situations helps.
    so thank you for all being out there.

    B

    Hey Brie! Nice to have you join us. I'm 34 too so I think that is the perfect age for TTC #1 : )

    Hello, thought I'd throw my hat in. I am 31, my DH is 29, and we have been ttc#1 since September. Shaerichelle, I am dealing with irregular cycles. When I was 21 I went on BC because I would get a period every 6-12 weeks. Since coming off BC, my cycles have been 36, 30, 34, 39, and 46 days. I've already gone and spoken to my ob/gyn about it. She wants me to try OPKs for two months to see if I can get a positive, and I'm scheduled for an ultrasound on March 4th.

    Question:

    How many of you are on a baby diet?

    I finding it sooo hard to give up coffee and take all my vitamins
    (don't get me wrong I eat great - vegetarian all my life - but I am addicted to chocolate - but hey who isn't)
    I know for a fact that the second I get pregnant the easier it will be - I won't have a problem with it at all

    but as the months go by and no baby I can't help but ask why we go without?
    IS anyone else conflicted.

    Lately, I'm just saying to hell with it and enjoying my coffee daily but boy oh boy does that guilt set in.

    I drink coffee, about one cup a day, and don't worry a bit about it. I only drink alcohol during my luteal phase. Most women I know say "drink till it's pink!".
