    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  I totally need help staying motivated.  The days I wanted to go to the gym it was closed or opened later than normal and, um, I have a real hard time running after I’ve been eating a ton (which seems to be all I’ve been doing lately).  Luckily, I bought Fiance a cookbook with all recipes for leafy greens for xmas and he’s already made a bunch.  I have a class I take at the gym on Monday nights, so hopfully I’ll be able to get back in the groove.  And my brother (random, I know) bought me a new sports bra for xmas but I haven’t run yet to be able to use it.

    Hello all!!  I need to catch up… things are moving fast πŸ™‚ 

    AFM, I just got my period yesterday!  Woohoo!  This is exciting because I had taken provera to get it started, and that was 6 days after my last pill.  Soooo that means I get to start clomid tomorrow.  Eeep!

    Also, DH and I currently rent a house that my parents own… where I live the average single family home goes for around 525k, so entering into the market on our own hasn’t been a possibility.  However, yesterday, they offered to sell it to us for 50k undermarket value (market value for this house is 550k).  Additionally, there is an attic and basement suite that are rented out, so that would help with the carrying costs of the house.  So, now, we have lots of thinking to do!!  We do really like the place.  It is an old, gorgeous home, and the main floor that we live in is 3 bed/living/dining/kitchen.  However,  it is an old 100+ year old home, which means there are issues that go along with it.  Ugh.  Thinking.

    @misshydra:  That is a lot to think about!  It’s nice that they offered it to you for 50k under market value.  We can’t afford a house where we live either.  sucks.  Good luck!  And yay on getting your period!

    @JavaLava:  Hi lady! I think I would want to POAS when DH wasn’t home either. It seems less stressful. FX!

    @rcac1208:  Solid red means FF is 100% sure of your O date. Dotted red is that FF is unsure (could be due to fertile fluid after O), and blue is when the user chooses their own O date and overrides FFs predictions. I don’t recommend ever doing that.  πŸ™‚

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  Hehe hi thanks for the reply. I haven’t had Anthing good to say about myself! It’s been freaking cold. We had -15 overnight and about 3 degrees F this week, haha.. Yay… Chilly house with no insulation on the first floor! πŸ˜‰

    @Tomato22:  Definitely read a lot about vitex. Some people have complaints about it And some bees swear by it!

    @nonapkns:  Lets see what happens with your temp in the next two days. It could be cd19 or cd 22. It’s hard to say! Also you can’t temp vaginally midway through an Oral temping cycle. They vary. So if you choose vaginal, you need to do all vaginal from the beginning. πŸ™‚

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  I’m currently sitting on the couch with a chocolate orange. I’ve never had one and it’s so addicting, we eat well mom-fir and eat more casually on the weekend. I have very fast metabolism but I’m also a higher weight than I want so I’m hating this chocolate too. My dad was underweight his whole life and I still see him struggle. It’s amazing what people day! I get what you mean! Some people would consider me underweight sinc I have no boobs and a long torso, but the BMI chart says I’m almost overweight. Sigh.

    @Aqualov:  The storm hit me in NJ already. We got about 4-6 inches though they predicted 10-12. Haha!

    @FreckledFox:  Thanks for the info, and thanks for adding me as a friend on FF πŸ™‚ It’s good to know there are awesome ladies looking out for one another! You guys are getting a winter storm too, hmm? We’re currently in the process of having 42 cm (~16.5in) of snow dumped on us. This is happening right after the 2 snow storms we’ve already had.

    @FreckledFox:  Yah, that one was about 5″ for us. Now we have another 10″ on the ground- I just checked. I think this one isn’t supposed to hit the east coast as snow.

    @misshydra:  Oh awesome!  I’ve  never been…. we are going to Whistler and I cannot wait!!  I have heard such great things.  I also hear you on the old house– my parents’ house was build in 1890 and they have redone much of it over the years.  It seems like it always needs something.  Undecided

    @Tomato22:  I think it’s totally normal to feel crappy.  I have been off BCP for a month after 10 or so years on…. last month I was so bloated all month.  Lately I feel like I’m super hungry all the time.  I’ve also been less active during the holidays… I was also hoping that my sex drive would go up (it’s almost nonexistent on the pill) but so far I haven’t noticed a change.  Hopefully soon.

    @Utopia4us:  Just saw that you’re working on a degree in counseling psychology… I’m a clinical social worker!  Do you know what you want to do when you’re done?

    @rcac1208:  I think our major winter storm “Hercules” is done with us for now. Just rain the next few days.

    @arielmerms:  Yes wayyyy long commute for you haha! Cycle planner is under Analysis I think.. It’s VIP only If you have that!

    @Aqualov:  Luckily I think we won’t get any more major snow. Wow that’s a lot of snow!! The news sensationalized this storm. It was pathetic!

    AFM, I cannot stop smiling. I mentioned to DH that I would love a little tv in the nursery so that when I’m in there 2-3 hours a night I’ll have something to do while feeding or just waiting for baby to sleep. He’s upstairs adding new circuits to that room before we insulate and drywall. I think he just might be adding a cable hook up too. Yay! πŸ™‚

    @arielmerms:  I’m just picturing your brother xmas shopping now. ‘Hmm, what should I get ariel…I know, a sports bra.’ And the idea of him deciding the correct szie is hilarious too.

    @rcac1208:Are you in Ontario? I wonder if it’s the same storm. We’re looking at getting 14-18″ (35.5-45.75cm) now.

    @misshydra:  It’s nice to have the option to think about though- good luck with your decision.

    @FreckledFox:  That tv is such a great idea! I never thought about that before. How cute that your DH is getting all set up for you.

    @misshydra:  Wow… what an awesome deal. I understand about it being an older home though. It seems like once something goes wrong it all starts going wrong and things add up quickly. At least that is how it was when I rented in Boston and New York. Things always went wrong in sets of threes. It is nice that you would have rental income though and there are already renters in there. And if you ever need more space, you will definitely have it.

    @FreckledFox:  Yeah, I know you cant switch between temping orally and viginally. I adjusted the temperature based on the fact that temped earlier in the day. I really wish I had just slept the extra hour and a half and then I wouldnt even be worried about the different ovulation times.

    But I have to say, I think i wam switching to vaginal next month. Much easier for me.

    @Aqualov:  It was on my amazon wish list with the size because I really wanted another one… I thought it was something my mom would buy me!  Definitely not something I’d expect from my big brother.

    If any of you ladies run, the moving comfort Juno is the best sports bra I’ve found for those with big boobies.
