• Northwave:
    When I was in the hospital I seen three lactation consultants and all three said that the baby should only be eating for 10 min on each side the most. Anymore than this and they are using you as a soother. I can agree with this, but I also think it is important to go by your baby. Your baby is eating for five minutes and then is hungry…[Read more]

  • My daughter is now 14 months old and I stopped breastfeeding when she was 9.5 months old. That is four and a half months ago, and I still have milk! I am not engorged but sometimes at night I stil leak a little if I am lying on my stomach, and if I express to see if it is still there I still have quite a bit! Does anyone else have this problem!

  • To those with stretch marks. Whether you use cream or not they will eventually all fade to a silver color. The cream just helps to lighten them sooner, but if you choose not to use any, they will still eventually fade. Now if only the stretchy loose skin would bounce back 🙂

    Thanks everyone for your kind words. I hope you all get your BFP’s really soon, and let’s make them sticky ones! I have to go, but will be on later.

    Yesterday I was CD 13 and out of no where started bleeding red blood like my AF was going to start. I just finished AF on CD 6! I had cramping and thought that I was maybe going to ovulate soon, boy was I wrong! This has absolutely never happened to me before! I occasionally get a tiny pink streak when I ovulate, but never red blood. I always am…[Read more]

    Never have I felt so sad in my life. I lost my baby last week. I had one wipe of light brown mucous on Sunday last weeked, nothing monday but had a beta done anyways on Monday to see what my levels were. One wipe of dark brown mucous on Tuesday, left work as doctor’s orders. Wednesday she sent me for an emergency ultrasound. It showed an empty…[Read more]

    Thanks Cleo! I will go check it out. I live in Canada so I will have to see how long it takes to get them here.

    Is anyone here taking their temps that work shift work. I work a lot of night shifts and I know that you are supposed to take your temps when you wake up in the morning first thing. Now I don’t get off until the morning so would I take my temps when I wake up after sleeping during the day? Anyone have any idea?

  • Crystal10102007 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    I would say that for most it is early, but for some it very well is O time as you are CD 9 and it is not impossible to O this early. If the OPK says it’s positive than BD BD BD! Baby dust to you!!!!!

  • Shauna: there is no way that they would ever go to this man! Children almost always go with the mother, and there is help out there to get you back on your feet. There are shelters for abused women. I hope you find what you need in order to leave this man for the safety of your children. They are obviously scared. Please end the vicious cycle by…[Read more]

    Some one also was asking what cervial mucous is like after OV and if you are PG. Fertility friend states that checking cervical mucous after OV is not a good way to indicate if pregnancy has occured or not because it will usually return to a non-fertile state even if you are PG, and will probably not notice a chang in CM until 4 weeks. Hope this…[Read more]

    That is a good idea, I will do that the next time I go to the bathroom. Thanks Jumana!

    Ruby love: you are not alone! I have taken three in the past few days and I am not due for AF until Saturday! I also like to drive myself crazy and analyze it for even the slightest hint that there may be something there!

  • Crystal10102007 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    i hope that the next 2.5 hours goes by super fast and you hear reassuring news very soon!

  • Crystal10102007 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    mommy21girl: I would wait to test at least for a couple more days. I found that a BFN is harder than waiting to see if AF shows up, and if you test to early then that is what will happen. Try to give it a few more days. Your symptoms sound promising though! I am 13 dpo, and had a BFN on 11dpo. I am now waiting until saturday if AF doesn’t show up…[Read more]

    Hello ladies,
    I have always known when I was ovulating, I would get a lot of discharge and menstrual cramps and knew that I had ovulated, but since we started to try this month I am driving myself nuts! I can’t tell when I ovulated. Each day I think okay, it’s done now and then I have more mucous! sorry for all the info! I thought that I began…[Read more]

    Allison: It sounds to me like you definetly could be PG! Have your tried a pregnancy test yet?

  • Crystal10102007 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    thebigtomato: I hope you feel better soon. I think it is totally normal to get really frustrated when ttc. It is something that is wanted so bad and yet we have no control over it. I too find it hard ttc even though I already have one. I feel pressure to get pregnant soon because I want my little girl to have someone to play with. Me and my two…[Read more]
