Hey! I’m catching up first then roll calling!
jammer62: Ah thanks for the screenshot. FX it means good things for you!!!
Turtle83: I understand your apprehension but I second what LittleRiver said. You need to know and it’s not worth feeling silly over, as you’ll be wondering whether or not your decision impacted the outcome, whereas calling would alleviate your concerns.
NewfieBullet: Thank you! Yes – stock up! Hopefully you won’t need them much longer but they’re good to have (and share) and will be a hot commodity. We don’t have a lot of other options north of the border. I’d love to be able to separate out my friends list as well. If you leave a review, can you PM me what you wrote? I’d love to do something similar and maybe if enough of us write the same thing, they’ll actually take action.
NeedPenPaperCoffee: Thank you. I’m sorry you didn’t BD during your FW. I cried myself asleep a night or two as well when we argued about BD’ing. It definitely adds a stressful element to a normally fun and healthy sex life. You’ve received lots of good advice, but I’d just highlight the importance of having those conversations out of the bedroom before either of you is in too much of a vulnerable state. Plus if you have an argument in bed, it’s easy to turn the other way and go to sleep, whereas if you talk about it on the couch, you’ll be able to further discuss or come to some sort of resolution before you enter the bedroom, hopefully increasing your chances of successfully BD’ing. It definitely hurts when we’re rejected because we’re conditioned to think men always want it and we’re the ones who usually reject them (which could hurt them, but we likely don’t consider it as much as when we’re the ones rejected). Are you able to come to a better understanding as to why he doesn’t want to BD? Is he too tired? Is it not spontaneous? Could you switch up the schedule a bit so it’s not always at night before bed for example, but maybe when you get home from work, or in the morning, and make it about more than just BD but rather special alone time for the two of you?
brlabrat: So happy you had a successful pre-TTC visit. My ob/gyn actually suggested FF to me (I knew about it before but never signed up) and showed me charts in my appointment too. Definitely appreciated the real world examples and TTC/pregnancy charts we looked at. No one has ever commented on my uterus before. I used to get some sort of visual during my paps before, where my insides would show up on a screen, so I assume they would have commented if my uterus was tilted or anything, but nadda. Hoping your blood tests come back clean and you’re all set to TTC!
ltj14: Good luck testing! What a sweet surprise it would be on your dating anniversary! I think I’m one of the few who want to find out alone and surprise him later. It looks like DH and I may both be at home when I call the doctor to find out the results, so I may sneak out for a bit. I want to give him something special to commemorate it or be able to surprise him with it in a creative way. Or I may just break down in tears of joy and tell him. We’ll see…
FreckledFox: I’m glad you are on bed rest and your hCG numbers are doubling and look nice and strong. Hopefully the bed rest will help alleviate any of the additional stresses on your body. Are you not able to use any vacation time or some sort of unpaid leave (so that you get the full 12 when the baby comes?). I’m definitely thinking of you and hoping that this time strengthens your body and then you’ll be able to get back to it with a healthy baby kicking inside (figuratively for now).
jammer62: So jealous of your cheap FRERs and HPTs! Sorry for the negative on the wondfo but hoping a FRER gives you your BFP (or a squinter)
mkat37: Sorry about AF. I’d have some wine and sushi with that chocolate if you’re into that. Hopefully you get some thread started luck this month!
