(Closed) Charters of the Hive Part XXXII

posted 9 years ago in TTC
  • poll: If money were no object, would you still work or be a SAHM? And, what's your reality? TWO POLLS!

    In the perfect situation, I'd be a SAHM!

    I'd work part-time, because I love my job!

    I'd work part-time, because otherwise I'd go completely insane!

    I'd work full-time, because I love my job!

    I'd work full-time, because otherwise I'd go completely insane!

    Other? Explain below.

    SECOND POLL STARTS HERE! YAY POLLS!

    I'm going to be a SAHM!

    I'd like to be a SAHM, but it's not feasible for our family.

    @OldMrsMcDonald:  A nice meal sounds good! I couldn’t do it without a washer. Even with one, I still have the piles.

    @lovemygsp:  I bet there is an automatic sander, one that can get the job done for you! Are you guys changing the color of the furniture?

    @candy11:  We have washers and dryers in the building, but 4 of each for a building of 50 units isn’t a lot. Spring is an excessively busy time for both of us at work, so laundry has definitely fallen by the wayside. We’ve only done loads as needed instead of our usual 10 load extravaganza every 2 weeks or so. I’m guessing we’ll break a record this weekend if we get it al done!

    For the poll: I work part-time and go to school full time. I doubt I can be Stay-At-Home Mom if I need to finish my degree lol! After that, I don’t think so; although that would be ideal unless DH makes good money. I will be graduating with the highest degree from both of us, so I feel the pressure. Life is unfair sometimes!!!

    Roll Call!!

    TTC or TTA: TTC

    Current Cycle Day: CD 10

    Ovulation Date: FF says May 24th but I think it’ll be more like May 21/22

    POAS date/AF due date: June 5th

    Cycles trying: 9

    Age (if you want to share): 26

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc): Prenatals, Vitamin D, Vitamin B Complex, Green tea leading up to O, Fish oil, preseed, and BD at least EOD O-4 to O. 

    If we don’t have any luck this month, DH is going to start FertilAid and I’m scheduling an appointment with my GP and OB/GYN. 9 cycles seems like a long time for two fairly young and healthy people to not get pregnant. We’ve also been together 11 years and have never had a “whoops” so that’s definitely starting to worry me. We were always VERY careful when we were TTA, but that’s a lot of sex without even one serious scare?

    What best describes your high school self: band geek, popular kid, loner, nerd, odd kid, athlete, that person who floated between all the cliques, other?  I’d have to say probably a nerd, but I went to an all girls high school so the cliques were different. They were there, but not nearly as defined as they are in some schools. I had a wonderful group of friends who I am still close with all these years later, in fact, I’m closer to them than I am my college friends.

    @wandering_gypsy:  Yea, we’ve got a palm sander. Its the actual vibration and having to put some strength in it that causes my arm to hurt. I think an orbital one might help though. I is actually the next big woodworking item DH and I want to buy. ๐Ÿ™‚

     

    I’m having problems sleeping tonight. I have just been feeling stressed and restless lately. Lame.

    I got my crosshairs this morning! They were nice and solid until I dropped my phone, and FF made them dashes. I don’t think those two are related, but man!

    @KH:  congrats!! post pics of your pee sticks!!

     

     

    so it’s 4:30am here so i’m going back to bed but wanted to update. my temp went back up this morning but it looks like i started my period yesterday afternoon. it’s different than usual. it’s not mucusy like it normally is and not heavy so i don’t know what to think. it’s just blood as if i cut myself but not bright red, more of a darker red (but not brown). i haven’t entered it in FF because i’m waiting to see if it stops today. i tested this morning and BFN. on the off chance this is not my period but related to implantation, it might be too early to test. i’ll see how today goes and what my temp is tomorrow i guess.

    @calibee79: What I had Wednesday was probably implantation. To be very graphic, I was personally very dry, so I pushed toilet paper in a little deeper to check CM. My cervix was low and the TP touched the cervix, where it touched was a dot of red, the rest was kind of like diluted red. I thought it was AF because I heard implantation would be brown or pink. It happened on two wipes (back to back, I wanted to double check assuming I was getting AF), and then not again. The next day my temp was higher. I hope that helps you! GL and FX!!!
