For fun: What did you do as a child that got you in trouble? My parents set boundary roads that I wasn’t allowed to cross when I was out playing, and I always got caught crossing them I was grounded quite a bit. Too independent and head-strong for my own good.

For fun: What did you do as a child that got you in trouble? I was pretty good. I distinctly remember an incident where I got sent to my room for mooning people at our house when I was 2 or 3, but my mom doesn’t remember it. Haha.

For fun: What did you do as a child that got you in trouble? I was actually pretty good, I think the worst I ever did was stay out waaaaay past curfew one day riding (about 10yo) – back in the day when “curfew” was as soon as it starts getting dark (around 5-6pm here). My parents were quite peeved.

@emb610: Are we really on part 39 already??
Post # 12
@FreckledFox: I found up to XXXVIII, which is 38, when I searched through old threads. This is the third thread I’ve been on and I’ve only been around these parts for a month and a half, so it’s certainly feasible!
Post # 13

For fun: What did you do as a child that got you in trouble? What didn’t I do? I was and still am not very good at focusing, I talk too much and I do too many things at once. Once I broke the VCR and blamed it on my brother. I used to have notes sent home from the teacher (3rd-5th grade) with a smiley face, content face, or sad face telling her about how well I behaved in class. I got too many sad faces.

@FreckledFox: haha whoops I think that was me messing it up… I am pretty sure I meant XXXIX and just put V instead, because I actually looked it up when I made it. lol

Age: 27, DH 33
POAS/AF Date: 8/27
BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: nothing really this month, BD when we can… I might take OPK’s… But we are traveling a lot in my FW (which so far has messed up my O dates) so I don’t think we’ll catch O.

For fun: What did you do as a child that got you in trouble?
I was a really good kid, I got in trouble once for going too far down the street (to play with the neighbors) without my mom’s permission, and I grounded myself in 4th grade for getting a C on my report card… (yup, that happened.) Otherwise I wasn’t too much trouble until my senior year in high school, and even then it was just being a little late for curfew and partying… But my friends and I were always responsible in that, if we had a party somewhere, everyone was staying the night, so there wasn’t any drinking and driving (not so responsible because that basically meant boy/girl sleepovers and there was tons of hooking up, lol. But we were always safe.)

CD/DPO: CD 10
Cycles TTC/Charting: 6th cycle charting!
Age: 27; DH is 31
POAS/AF Date: AF- 28 August
BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: So far no known issues. Can’t wait to get back to TTC. I’ve been on prenatals since January, and when we do get back to it will be a bit more actively trying than the NTNP that we were doing. I might order pre-seed. Oh yeah, I use OPKs too. ; )

For fun: What did you do as a child that got you in trouble? My mother was a mess when I was growing up. I think I got in trouble for breathing.
@ShellVee: Sorry about your BFN!
One of my best friends from grad school is about to have a baby any day now. (Over 41 weeks). I’m so excited for her, but I have to admit that my eyes are turning a little green. I’m trying to focus on looking forward to my other friend’s bridal shower this weekend because I get to wear a new dress to it!
I’m also trying to decide since we’re TTA if I should order more OPKs for this month. I’ve O’ed really consistently on day 18 for a multiple months now. DH seems to think I should order more anyway to confirm (I’m not sure he gets that it’s not an OPK isn’t technical confirmation so much as it narrows down the window/predicts). I’m not sure it’s worth the expense since things are a bit tight right now. (Although last week’s financial crisis appears to have likely dissipated). Any thoughts?
