• well, i’m out this month. AF showed her face! I’m not that upset, as i expected this. However it still would have been nice to be surprised! Baby dust for the rest of you waiting 🙂

  • Sounds promising tryingfor1more ! When did u first notice u were having symptoms? I’m not feeling too optimistic this cycle…

  • So, 6 dpo and no symptoms that i can tell. Any of my cycle buddies feelin anything?

  • Hi girls. I’m just wondering which is a more popular way to temp when ttc, vaginally or orally? So if the rule of thumb is that a temp above 97.7 means you likely ovulated based on oral or vaginal temps?–mind you i know this varies…

    Hi girls. Anyone that BFs on demand notice an increase in nursing around your LO’s 11 month mark? My LO was sort of slowing down a bit on the nursing as she started eating more solids, but now seems to be picking up again. Well, now that i think of it, the feedings are mainly at night. For a little while she really didn’t care to nurse during the…[Read more]

    Hi girls. Hope everyone is having a good weekend . So, i’m still BFing my girl (she just turned one) and she is still waking 2-3 times a night to nurse. Which is fine. I enjoy our night time cuddles for the most part. However, I am concerned about what this might do to her teeth (she has 4)…is it really bad for her to have the sugar f…[Read more]

    *wyatts*mommy–I had a vaginal delivery and barely bled at all right after giving birth up to about 8 days. Then I started bleeding bright red blood, i would say fairly moderately, until around 10 weeks or so. I was told it has to do with activity level/lifting stuff…if you’re more active you can start bleeding again at any point. But i didn’t…[Read more]

    Hi ladies. This is not ttc related but hoping some of you have advice. My friend recieved her AFP results back and found out her risk of downs is 1/100. SHe’s only in her mid 20’s. How much stalk should she place in the blood test? She has the option of doing the amnio to confirm or get an ultrasound. The thing is she would have to wait a month…[Read more]

    Hi girls. THis may be a stupid question…do you think that breathing through your mouth can significantly lower your BBT? I tend to always breath out of my mouth because i have allergies to pretty much everything and so am congested alot. I’ve taken bbt vaginally too and it is always MUCH higher. I know it’s supposed to be, but the different is…[Read more]

  • babyblue1 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    I should mention that I tried all the other stuff too (i.e. preggo pops, eating crackers before getting up) and none of it helped for me (i ended up puking over a garbage bucket 10 minutes later no matter what). I hate to sound like i’m a pill pusher, but it really was a lifesaver and I had no idea it existed…so just wanted to put it out there–…[Read more]

    Cosmomama-I had a very fast letdown early on which caused my girl to de-latch but when my milk further established itself the problem went away. I also think my LO sort of figured out a suckling strategy to deal with it over time. Right now it’s frustrating I know…could you pump a little out first so it all doesn’t rush out at once? I have also…[Read more]

    Hi. Does it matter what kind of potty you use? My daughter is 4 months old.

  • babyblue1 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    Thanks for the congrats yesterday ladies 🙂 Jen I have my fingers crossed for you! Those faint lines sound like a good thing. The digi’s usually require a higher hcg so maybe it’s just not high enough yet to detect…Good luck ladies!!!!

  • babyblue1 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    about the low temp—do you happen to sleep with your mouth open i.e. do you have allergies or anything like that? This may be causing the low reading. You could try temping vaginally (if you feel comfortable doing so). If the mouth breathing is affecting your temps, with V temping you’ll probably get a higher reading that shows a clearer pattern…

    Hi girls..i don’t post here much but i just wanted to chime in on the co-sleeping bit. I have shared a bed with my girl since she was born (she is almost 11 months). I have found it great for BF–as i’m sure some of you girls do. Anyhow, i was reading the forum on co-sleeping here and i feel like the info at the top is somewhat inaccurate and it…[Read more]

    Thanks thebigtomato. I’m so confused about what’s going on with my cycle right now because of the BF. I’m not actively ttc but I’m trying to learn what i can for when I DO want to (I know you girls know what you are talking about). BTW–i think you girls are awesome!

  • babyblue1 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    Thanks for the tip Diane! I’m actually from NL but moved to BC last year. I’ll keep an eye out for the preseed.—i am currently breastfeeding and i’m not sure if my cycle is doing the same things it used to. So when you say ‘thick’ are you talking about really EW-like or something else?

  • babyblue1 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    monstamama-when i was using opks I always had a faint line (i must have tested about 10 days in a row before i actually ovulated–it was my first time with opks and i was poas crazy, lol!).

  • babyblue1 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    I have had 7 days of ewcm!! Seems like a lot! I have a 15 month old and still haven’t had my first cycle! Anyway, i think my body is trying to ovulate but then just doesn’t. A few weeks ago i had tons of ewcm them a week later spotting. Then nothing. Now again i have had a week of ewcm, and a +opk today and yesterday. I don’t know what is up!! I…[Read more]

    Hi girls. I’m just curious as to what you all think about the research on taking Folic acid and increased cancer risk (I just read about it the other day so i haven’t done that much digging on it myself). I was under the impression that you could never get enough (especially when ttc)! Here is a link to article on babycenter for those of you…[Read more]
