Omg, I'm SO excited, BeautifullyBlessed!! Stress level just went to ZERO yesterday!!! I've been super stressed because hubby is still unemployed even though he's applying to jobs constantly. It's really hard to find a job with his experience without a degree. And he won't settle for anything that will pay him less than what he's getting for unemployment right now, which is understandable. But, I've been working so hard and so much lately, and it's still not enough. Bills have been behind, everything piling up, I'm getting ready for summer semester after taking a semester off, I've been telling my husband to go apply for a job that is 16hrs away from where we live where he would work 2 weeks on & 2 weeks off & he is guaranteed a job placement & get paid $4,000 a month for just working 14 days and if need be, we would save up & I would transfer schools to that area, and we would move. Anything to help us out financially. Everything just seemed to be coming at all sides and no time to breathe. Well, I looked at our bank statement and we had a large amount of money deposited like 4 days ago! We haven't looked at our online statement, so we didn't notice it until yesterday. Hubby called the place that deposited it because we thought it was a mistake or something & we didn't want to get our hopes up with this money. He's getting paid for 5% permanent disability for the injury he received at the job that laid him off in December & it does not affect his unemployment at all! We got a big chunk of it now, and we're getting smaller (but yet still big) payments over the next 4 months. Which in that time I'll be getting my summer & fall semester financial aid overage checks to help us with cost of living. We did the math, and with everything we will be financially stable for a while even if hubby doesn't work again til January or even longer. Now my paychecks are basically going to be 100% put into savings or starting to purchase baby items to start getting ready for baby, because we are 100% back on to TTC baby #3!!!! View Thread
I was on birth control (pill) for 4 years. Some people can get pregnant right away after they stop taking it, others it can take a few months for your body to get to 100% normal after taking it. I'm not one of those people who go back to normal after being on birth control. I've had positive OPKs and BD'd at all the right times and still no BFP. We've been on a break from ttc-ing, but now we're back on, & this whole time I decided to stay off my birth control, so with all these months of no birth control, I'm hoping it won't take long. With people who haven't been on birth control and trying to conceive, it still takes an average of 3-6 months to get pregnant if the couple has nothing wrong with them and are 100% fertile. It's hard, trust me, I understand, but you have to try and be patient. Good luck to you & baby dust!!View Thread
Hi. Sorry I didn't get back right away. Life has been crazy! But, it's alright. I wasn't too disappointed in af this time around. We aren't like...trying trying this month-like charting, opks, timed intercourse, etc. But we aren't avoiding my fertile window. I am still aware of when that is, so...we are just going with the flow right now. Going by the calendar, O-day is today. I want to say it was yesterday though. I had more signs pointing to O than I am today. We BD'd 3-4 days ago, so unless we BD tonight, I think we missed it, but I'm ok with that this month. I'm way too stressed this month to have anything happen anyways.View Thread
Ok, ladies! I know hubby & I are taking a break from TTC-ing. We were going to start this month (May) but he is still on unemployment. So it looks like it's not happening this month. He's applying to 4 jobs a week but has yet to hear about anything. He doesn't have much experience with a lot of things, because he's worked for so long doing one thing. He's got excellent experience at what he did do, but it's such a tight market here, it's hard for him to find anything with his experience without a degree.
Anyways, since I'm not on the BCP anymore, my cycles are finally regular! It took awhile, but...my body is finally normal! We aren't trying, but we BD'd at the very beginning of my fertile window. We didn't realize it was my fertile window, or else it wouldn't have happened. Even though we aren't trying, I am taking prenatals just because I stocked up & have a lot. Plus prenatals seem to give me more of what I need normally than what regular multivitamins give. Now AF is 1 day late so far. I can't help but let my mind wander to the "what if I'm pregnant?" I don't want to test. I mean, I do, but I don't want to. It seems like every time I POAS, AF starts literally that same night. Never fails! Lol. It's not the ideal time to get pregnant, but I still want it so SO bad regardless.
I'm thinking of getting a cheapie & testing in the morning, but yet I'm thinking wait a few more days.
What do you ladies think? Test or wait a few days?View Thread
Sorry about AF! I'm on cycle day 4 & AF for me will probably be gone tomorrow. We have 1 more cycle left, then we'll probably start ttc-ing again! Hopefully we will! I got some news the other day. My dad & step-mom are going to have a baby! I'm going to have a baby brother or sister that will be 26 years younger than me. My boys will have an aunt/uncle younger than they are!! Lol. The baby is due around my boys' bdays in November!! I found that quite amusing. I have weird...mixed feelings about it. The part that irks me is she didn't want to have any kids. She's 35 or 36 & she didn't want any kids & now she's going to have one. She's like...turned off by pregnancy & she can't wait for it to be over. She doesn't have morning sickness or anything. Just the stuff that she reads, she's like disgusted by it. I know pregnancy can have it's moments, but even with those ugly, gross, bad moments, I loved it. I tried to tell her that she has no idea how wonderful it will be & to just treasure this time & enjoy it, because she will miss it. I'd do anything to be in her spot right now & she's wishing it away. *sigh* I am happy for them though. I get to have a baby sibling, hopefully a sister cuz I don't have one! I'll get to see the baby everyday which will feed my baby fever if I haven't gotten preggo by the time the baby is here.View Thread
Thanks BeautifullyBlessed! He actually has an interview on Thursday & I don't want to get my hopes up too high for it! It's one of those "too good to be true" jobs! No education required & he will be getting paid MORE start off than what he was getting at the end of the job he left when we moved!! And that was a GREAT paying job! We will be making more than we ever did in our married life if he gets this! I've never been so nervous or stressed over a job interview & it's not even for me! O M G! I've never prayed so much & so hard for something like this either. As for Evalyne, as I understood it, AF showed up. I don't think any body but Zaysmama & Capriciousangel got a BFP since the beginning of our little "group." Unless I missed something?? I haven't been on a lot either, except for recently.View Thread
