Mine are still up (for me) too...only 4 days up now though (I thought today would be 5 days...I erred!)...keeping my fingers & toes crossed for you Shaylind!!!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/t_up.gif">
My fingers are numb from crossing them. I'm praying too all of you.
AutumnLeaves: I have so much to learn about temps, CM and best time to have BMS - I'm so new to this and really want to have all our ducks in row for March. My TYOCF should arrive shortly. I guess if I stick around here I'll keep learning all I need to know. As I mentioned my next O time is approx March 1 -3.
Nela: I just want to wish you and your hubby much fun, play time and romance on your trip to Valencia tomorrow. We are going to miss you.
Shaylind, Jodie, Mommarican and dearest AutumnLeaves: My thoughts are with you more than you'll ever know. This is so exciting for all of us. Sending lots of hugs and tranquility!
Ladies, I just poured my heart out on the post about abortion. I know that this girl is still very young, but I had to get it out of my system. If ya'll read it, please let me know if I was too harsh. Thanks!
Tcb...on the contrary, don't worry! You were not at all harsh, I promise. I think you spoke so well, from the heart, that's all that matters. So rest assured you were very kind.
Latebloomer, Autumn, everybody else, thanks for the well wishes for my weekend away! Let's hope the rain and snow clear off!
I'll check in later, before I turn in.
TCB, I don't think you were harsh either. In fact, you stated things quite lovingly. You are to be commended. I certainly hope she decides on an alternative to abortion. Thank you for saying it.
LateBloomer...just make sure you check the CM along with the temps...some people do not dip in temp before ovulation. I believe once the temps start to rise, you have already ovulated! I wish you luck...and happy bd'ing!!!
Nela...what a support you are to everyone! Happy packing, sweetie <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif">
Hey tcb and autumn: Just wanted to let you know that the last time abortion was brought up (not-so-friendly member) I asked the moderator if it should be discussed under Preg/childbirth(?)They said abortion is not a topic for the board. I haven't read your posts and I do not judge in any way, but its hard to hear about abortion issues while ttc. BTW how could you be harsh TCB, you're the best! ((hugs)) I'm so full of hugs lately!!!
Latebloomer...I just alerted the moderator and the post has gone! You're right, it's not really a topic for this board. I feel for her, but I also think of the pain we are going through ttc and it isn't the right place to discuss abortion. I only hope she makes the right decision.
Hello my friends!!! Well, I got the green light to go to the hospital last night after work for the blood test!!!! I am having doubts about being pg anymore, but AF still hasn't shown up (13 days late) and I did have spotting on January 28th - which I am still hoping that it was implantation - even though my HPT was negative. Anyway, the doctor's office is going to call me tomorrow with the results. I'm so nervous and tonight I have to say good bye to an old friend who is in the Reserves (a medic) and was called to go active. I'm quite sad, that makes 2 people that I know
that are going to fight this war- my uncle (who is in Germany) and my very good friend <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bigcry.gif">. I hope they come back alright. Anyhow, I find out tomorrow - so here I sit at work waiting again!!!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif">
Mommarican...I'll be away until Sunday, so I won't know your test results until then. I'm hoping it works out for you! I can't wait to get back and read about your results!
I can only imagine what you must be feeling saying goodbye to your beloved friends! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif"> Try to put your faith in God if you are religious, and if not, send out positive vibes for them to come back safely, which of course they will!
I'll be praying for you, sweetie <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/angel.gif">
You take your temp every morning throughout your cycle. If you are wanting to start doing this, I suggest the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility"....it really helped me alot and I'm still going through it sometimes with questions I have about my temps.
Hi everybody...just got Dr. results...everything is NORMAL! Blood work came back negative for pregnancy. So I guess it has to be menopause. No other reason that I can think of... <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif"> Anyway, doc will refer me to an RE but it will take a week to get that then who knows how long for an appt...prospects looking dimmer...
autumnleaves-I'm so sorry about the - pg test. But at least everything is normal...it wouldn't be good if they came back bad. Did they also tell you that your thyroid is normal? Going to an RE may be the best thing for you yet! I know that they can help with alot of different problems. I'm still telling you DO NOT GIVE UP! You'll get an appointment in no time and be on your way to pregnancy!
I'm so sorry your test came out negative. I have been watching your posts, and hoping that you were pregnant. TCB, is right...RE's can work miracles, and September is still a longs ways off.
Sending lots of prayers your way, as well as all the other TTC buddies.
TCB, I've been keeping an eye on your posts too. AF is due next week? Keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you. I miss talking to you on a daily basis, but I have been keeping up with you and everyone else.
Miss you all,

I agree with tcb. RE's are much more aggressive than regular Gynos because their only job is to get women pregnant. They are very fast at getting the ball rolling because they understand that women do not like to "waste" cycles. Good luck to you, autumnleaves!
AutumnLeaves: Sorry to hear about bloodwork for prg test. If everything else is in normal range, than that is good news, but guessing its menapause is not so good. The past week or so has been such a whirlwind for you. Why not do a search and see what menapause symptoms are. I'm sure you're not quite there yet. Your visit from AF may just be late. I wish I could drive over and take you out for a girly night tonight <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
sending a ((((HUG))))))
