ColoradoGirl :  Dr did not mention when to expect results on prolactin levels. Said she’ll let me know when they come in or if I need to come back to provide a new blood sample. Other results came in Monday after I was at the doctor Friday, so I’m hoping I’ll hear back by tomorrow or Thursday.

beignetwife :  ok, that maybe makes more sense. Only medication I take not for intended use is the occasional Nyquil on a Sunday night. Otherwise it’s always a struggle falling asleep.

I think I’ll stick with pre-seed this cycle vs mucinex. I’m avoiding Zyrtec, but using flonase (nasal spray) per doctor’s suggestion because I’ve been getting a lot of sinus headaches and tylenol won’t help with those.

isn’t TJ Miller the voice of mucinex?

My prolactin levels are normal! My fears of infertility are gone…. for now. I’m sure google will get the best of me again with something else later…

Ok ladies I need your advice. My whole life I’ve wanted a dog. I never had a dog growing up and neither has DH. I’m extremely allergic to cats. Anyway, I’m starting to get the itch to get a puppy. I work M-F 8-5. I can occasionally go home for lunch, but definitely not often. Getting in and out of the parking garage is rough. Am I crazy for considering getting a puppy since I won’t be home all day? I feel like this should be normal right? DH schedule varies between work and school. But he studies a lot so I’d hate to burden him. I’m totally open to paying for obedience training so the puppy will learn basic commands and be potty trained.  Id hate to be one of those people who shouldn’t be a puppy parent, but I’d also hate to miss out on the joys of a having a dog. Help?

beignetwife :  DH and I both grew up with dogs. We both want a puppy. The problem is that with no puppy no kids, it’s easy to be gone from home long periods of time, take trips etc. I work from home so training a dog will fall almost all on me, and I worry about barking when I’m on conference calls. I also don’t know how I feel about a puppy or young dog around when we bring a baby home. Is it easier to get one now and train it as best as we can? Would it be easier to get/train a dog after we have a baby instead of introducing something new as soon as we get the dog trained? I have no idea what to do.

 

Edit: The breed of dog is a big factor. Some dogs (like Jack Russels) are super hyper and tend to have attachment issues. So if you’re gone during the day they’re more likely to tear things up or make noise potenitally bothering your neighbors. Other breeds are more laid back.

ColoradoGirl :  I’m pretty good – hanging out on CD3.  The TWW before the TWW is extremely long as always! I’m actually coming to your part of the country for NYE – going skiing in Snowmass!  I hate cold/snow and I’m an eternal bunny sloper, but I’m looking forward to a nice break with DH – its been a pretty hectic couple of months. Plus it will be smack in the middle of my TWW so it’ll be a nice distraction 

On another note, I feel like I’ve gone a little crazy with all the stuff I’m doing this cycle – I’ve been taking a prenatal and a folate supplement and today my Amazon order of vitamin B6 and PreSeed arrived. I’ll be using Wondfos and CB advanced digital OPKs and of course temping.  I’m planning to try SMEP to better “streamline” our BD timing.  When I list it all out, I start to second guess myself.  Especially after reading a crazy story today about a woman who found out she was pregnant when she went into labor…

beignetwife :  Don’t get a puppy then have a baby.  My friends had a dog and when you first have a baby the poor thing gets so neglected or becomes quite a burden.  They said they wished they had waited until the kids were a bit older.  A few other people I know got the starter dog and love them to death but find it super challenging with young kids.  *edited to add* the logistics of a dog on top of the demands of a baby are really tough but a puppy or young dog would be even harder.

banana330 :  this is how I’ve been leaning on the topic. DH really pushes the dog thing here and there but I think as soon as we have a kid he’ll be happy we waited it out.

livster :  what’s the B6 for?

TXbride2015 :  It supposedly helps to increase progesterone. I have started spotting for 2-3 days before AF and I know that can be a sign of low progesterone.  But, I just read that too much B6 can have some serious side effects, so I’m not sure if I’ll be taking it now. I might hold on to it until my OBGYN appointment in January (if my current cycle is a bust) and ask her to test my progesterone levels first

livster :  I spot a few days before AF too! I even said something about it while I was there but she didn’t say anything about it being a concern. 

Hmmm…

livster :  I’ll check when i get home from work but I’m 95% sure my OB said I could take b6 4 times a day at 25 mg for morning sickness, luckily I haven’t been getting sick too often so I never started up but I’m pretty sure you’d have to take a ton to get to unsafe levels

teacherbee01 :  I use essential oils. They do help calm me down as I often feel stressed and anxious about things (the stress of TTC isn’t helping, lol). I diffuse lavender pretty much every night. It’s worth the cost. Cheaper than therapy I imagine. 🙂

beignetwife :  DH and I have two dogs and they are the loves of my life. Our australian shepherd is 2 and our goldendoodle will be 1 in January, so both still puppies but they are wonderful dogs. The only behavorial issue is our doodle likes to rip up carpet if we seclude him or leave him, but that was fixed by putting him in a room with no carpet while we are gone at work for the day. DH and I both work out of the home and they are alone for roughly 8-9 hours a day but between trips to the park and walks they get in plenty of exercise to wear them out. We also cannot wait to see how they are with a baby. The doodle is such a lover that we almost anticipate him to sleep in the nursery and we expect the aussie to be very protective of her/him as he is very protective of me. They are family to us and now that we have them, I could not imagine a life without them.

TXbride2015 :  Hmmm. I spot for 2-3 days before AF too. I’m really, really thinking I have low progestrone. All the signs and symptoms are there.

TXbride2015 :  for the mucinex you want to make sure it only has Guaifenesin as it’s only active ingredient.  If it has other ingredients they could dry you up.  Guaifenesin thins the mucus (to help you cough it out) but also thins cerivcal mucus to make it more watery.
