We Are In This Together! AF came right around Christmas! - Page 2

Reply by PookieKittens » Jan. 1, 2011 7:42pm

Alright B, I'm going out to buy it tomorrow..if I turn orange and streaky I'm gonna find you! Lol. Jk. So, you guys are starting the BD'ing in CD 6, huh? smart. The earlier the better...as of today, I am still spotty. I think I'll give myself a day than start BD'ing on CD 6 as well which is Monday for me. Than sex every OTHER day till AF. We usually stop when we " think" I've ovulated and damn, it makes the 2 ww go by so slow, might as well continue to think you are trying and gave it your all and do it all month.

I'm off for the next 3 days so I'm starting my gym regimine tomorrow. Today is still a holiday and so I've had some wine and Bacardi already.. My husband is giving up alcohol for the first 30 days of the year so I think this will help the BD'ing.

Anyway, we stayed in last night and watched our local countdown and went to bed at 12:15am..it was pretty lame. I was so tired from work and he was drunk by time I got home..no fun. Hoping my new year goes better than it started.. Ha ha.

Pookie, I paid about $25 for a spray tan and like I said, it lasts for two weeks or so. It costs less than getting nails filled, haha. It looked really nice on me. I did not look orange at all, just very nicely bronzed. Just make sure the salon is good. The first place I went to, I went into the booth, did a little dance and got sprayed in 4 passes. When I came out of the booth, a tech "buffed" me out in places like my fingers, toes, knees and elbows. The other place I went had no booth. I got naked and the tech airbrushed me with the stuff. That also looked really nice, but cost a lot more. The only thing is, they spray you with a dye too so they can see where the color went and where they need to touch up. You can't shower for several hours after and, as the tan comes up, the combination of the brronzer and the dye make you look dirty. Don't plan on doing anything for a few hours until the time passes that you can take a shower and get the dye off!

I got my ovulation and 10ml pregnancy tests in the mail yesterday. According to two different sites, I will o on either the 6th or the 7th. I think I will start taking the tests on the third to be safe (cd 7). Jeeze I hope this is my month because I am getting more agitated as time passes.

Thanks Corvina!! I appreciate the info. Can you tell I'm a true fake baker at heart!? I've never done the spray or lotion, only the beds and sun bathing by Lake Michigan! ;)

Last month I detected my LH Surge on CD 9, so yeah, test at will!! I'm a huge fan of doing everything early enough and late enough to cover your bases. Lol. Plus, we will all be here to cheer each other on, ask questions and hopefully leave nothing to chance. It's going to be hilarious when we're all symptom spotting in a week and a half. Lmao. We'll be like, "omg, my boobs hurt, omg my twinges hurt, omg my cm is dry, omg my cm is a lot." etc...

Ahh, Thanks Bianca...I posted an anonymous "question" under the ask a question section...can you read it let me know what you think?

I got a dark line on my OPK's today...that is ridiculously weird!! I'm on CD 5. Last month I got that same line CD11 and November, CD 14...
I ran out of preggo tests on December 27 or 28, can't remember...got my period on the 29th, a day early..and have not tested since like the 27th or 28th, like I said. I didn't think it was necessary..

WOW... pookie, what is that all about? Do you think you could be pregnant? Duh, of course you could... LMAO... Is that what you are thinking? It hasn't been unheard of to get a light period while prego! CD5 is outta control early for a LH surge right? To be honest I have never used OPK's... I just bought a pack and will start using on Wednesday... Like I said, I got really lucky with my daughter and never needed the aid of anything... Just the disco stick, if you know what I am saying! Not getting pregnant last month was a huge shock for me... I was so positive it would happen right away.
Anyway, wow. Do you think you should test? I did read that opk and pregnancy tests are very similar and sort of test for the same thing... Great information on peeonastick dot com.

question pookie.... If you detected your LH at CD9, when does that mean you should have ovulated?

We ran out and got a test. Negative. I'll use the other with my FMU, but the cramping and dark lines creep in me out.

I have never tested this early with my OPK's, so, maybe it's typically that dark and than gets even darker...I'm sure that's the case.

Jesus...I....drive.....myself......NUTS!

False alarm , friends!! Thanks for being there.

I jumped the gun today, haha. We went to the Browns game with our union and on the busride home, I had some weird cramps on my lower left side. Not terrible ones, but they were there and nagging the entire hour-long ride home. I came home and took an opk and NOTHING, haha. I am only on cd6, but I do think I o early because of when I had ewcm last month. Maybe it was just pains because of the outcome of the game and the fact that half the bus was Steelers fans who WOULD NOT STOP rubbing it in the faces of those of us wearing orange and brown, haha. Maybe if the Browns would have at least lost valiantly, I would not have ended up wasting an opk, lol.

I have been having very weird cramps as well and my
(o)(o)'s are sore: Weird! It makes me nuts... I was so symptomatic last month and was sure I was pregnant. I think it is our minds playing tricks on us... I am trying to ignore them. How annoying!
Have a great day girls. I go back to work today.
YUCK!

Too funny ladies!! I think our bodies are prepping for an LH Surge and we're all going crazy with the twinges in our abdomen again!!

My Chicago Bears lost too, so maybe the frustration of losing to the Packers caused my craziness too.

Either way, enjoy your day ladies..its almost time to get our positive OPK's!

Hello ladies,

I am new to this website, but it seems like an encouraging community to be a part of. So if it is okay with all of you, I would like to join on this thread.

My husband and I have been trying for 6 months for our first... no luck yet. I have PCOS, so I expected it to be a little difficult anyway..

I am on CD 9.. So will hopefully ovulate soon... then BD time. I am going to try preseed this time around. Anyone use that?

Thanks... this community does make me feel that we are all in this together!

Hi Aroma, Suzy and Benz... Pookie, Corvina and all the beautiful ladies who are trying to make babies!!!
I am on cd8... If I were you I would get to BDing ASAP! The more the better... Unless DH is over 40 then everyother day is recommended, I believe.

BDing... Keepin it fun and light is the way to go! Don't even talk about making babies to DH. Make it all about the moment and try your hardest to ENJOY! This month I am taking that approach and it has been MUCH more enjoyable than last month which was a nightmare...We we were like two machines and BDing became a huge drag! I am actually looking forward to tonight!

I want that BFP! Now, who is with me!?

Hi Ladies,

Glad to see everyone is still here.. :)

I'm with you guys on the O ing pains early this month. I usually have terrible pains during that time and right after I finished my AF this month these pains started.I;m so worried about etopic despite getting AF I am really thinking I should take another Pregnancy test bc I had such pain in my left lower abdomen last night. Unless I just OV early... ugh.. why is this so difficult? :)

Well if I did OV early that means AF will be early this month need to continue the work on my husband for that IVF as I really want to try this cycle..

Keep posting ladies I am keeping my fingers crossed for all of you!
