Alix: Tara is right.. plus, the way I understood it as, is when you find out you are PG by an HPT, you are "technically" 1.5-2 weeks along. However, it was harder for doctors i guess, so they began to say that by the time you got a + HPT, you were 4 weeks pregnant (thus going from the 36 week system to 40 weeks). Which is pretty much saying you were PG on your first day of your LMP. Hope that helps So techincally you are 5 weeks now at that point, but the baby is only about 3 weeks..and at that point if they did an ultrasound you wouldnt see much except the sac. My friend had an US at 5.5-6weeks because she was experiencing bleeding when she walked. Her first ultrasound looked like a blob lol. I was like "bekah...where is the baby?!"
Tara: OMG yes, they are total rednecks.. oh wait..nevermind, Im insulting the rednecks out there. They are worse than that. Chris wont let me call the sherriffs office, and my property manager told me that thats all i can do (and the more times we do it, the more ammo she has for eviction). Chris wont let me though so Im pretty much SOL. They had their trash bag out on the front porch of our shared walkway for 3 days, before putting it inside their vehicle, where it has sat for a week..the smell coming from the vehicle is so bad, I keep retching. SO GROSS.
GOOD LUCK AND BEST WISHES ON YOUR CONSULT TODAY!! please please please update us asap!!! Im guessing with the time difference, your consult is at 5pm my time?
afm- Looks like I O'd thursday according to my chart. Been nauseated for days. DH added to stress last night, but now wont say whats going on, which only makes me worry more and worse. I need a day to relax.

Brie- That is crazy your neighbors are like that. I can't imagine living life that way. How disgusting about the trash! Why won't Chris let you call the sherriff? I'm sure they deal with that kind of behavior a lot. Hmmmm, are you worried you might have caught an egg you didn't mean to catch? Thanks, it should start about 5:00 your time. I will keep you gals posted. Off to bed for me since I have to wake up in 5 hours.

Alix: I think its safe to say 5 weeks for you.. I felt that way very early on with the whole clothes thing. I wear mine snug fitting anyway (but not too tight) so any slight weight gain was noticeable. By 9 weeks, i was crying and getting maternity pants (which..are so comfy, btw). I still wear a few of my maternity clothes..they are THAT comfy!
Tara: He wont let me because he doesnt like dealing with sherriffs. In his younger years, he was a hooligan after his detective father passed away from cancer, so he went wild after that. Luckily, he's grown up and matured since then but he does NOT like dealing with cops, even if its for a good thing.
Im hoping we didnt catch an eggie we didnt mean to. We BD'd on the 2nd without protection and thats when he "forgot" but thats 6 days later if i O'd on the 8th.. I had O pains on the 5th though.. so Im confused. I know last week I had a few "odd" days where I slept in til almost 9 am because layla slept in that late vs getting up at 7am like usual, so maybe those are slightly off? Im not sure. Im reading the FFsites book trying to understand the charting better. I definitely O'd though. We used protection this weekend..once. lol. The second time was a withdrawl..but I sure dont trust that. Layla was either concieved from a few day old swimmers or pull out mehtod failure. But I think im safe if I O'd on the 8th
afm- I think Im going to start the Lo loestrin FE next cycle.. DH has already proved this whole "using protection" thing isnt going to work lol. Next cycle puts me at Layla being 11 months, so I think I should be ok. We like to be spontaneous with our BDing and we have never had to use protection before so its hard to remember (alot harder to remember than I thought it would be too.. I figured I'd remember at least, but when you are in the heat of the moment.. NOT as easy as it appears lol). So I am going to have to take my own precautions.
The estrace cream helped tremendously, so I am good in that area, and maybe the small amount of estrogen in the LLF bcp will be just enough to keep my body on the right track. Idk. still on the fence. AF (if i get it) is due on my and DH's birthday... how lovely . I may need a hpt for my present!

Alix- Sounds like you're suffering from fatigue from that little bean in there. Wearing jeans in hot weather sounds absolutely miserable.
Brie- The mini pill does sound like a good idea for you guys. Kinda sucks having to take it at the same time everyday. The pull out method really isn't much of a method AKA pull and pray. We know someone who ended up with twins that way. Too bad he has such an aversion to law enforcement. They aren't all bad. You'd be calling cause you need their help not cause either of you are in trouble. That's part of what they are there for and you should be able to call them if you need to.

Alix: Burlington coat factory has some super cheap maternity stuff here, then the other place was Bealls outlet, but thats more of a Florida chain store. Check out burlington for sure though I would offer to send you the ones I have, but geez at the rate DH and I are going I may need them again =)) lets hope not..but oh well. If we ever do have another, Im planning to give birth in december. Lmao.
Tara: Its almost 5 here!! GOOD LUCK! I am hoping you get some encouraging news!!!! FX'd!!!!
I did talk to Dr. M about the mini pill, but she said alot of her patients have a high failure rate, and I have a terrible short term memory, due to a concussion i recieved a few years ago. I can remember things that happend years ago just fine..hours or a day ago? Not so much.I used to be a great multitasker too..but now its more of a one track gotta finish at one sitting thing or i forget. So it really isnt a good fit for me, so I think im just going to take the plunge with the lo loestrin pill. the combination pills are more forgiving for my distracted brain. I havent seen an effect with using the estrace cream on my milk, so I may just go ahead with it, then I may not need to use the estrace cream with the small amount of estrogen in the pill. I can always stop if it does hurt the supply. I just hate to play rush and roulette with my body right now after all ive been through lately. But I sure dont like playing rush and roulette with eggs and swimmers either.. hard decision. I am not starting pills mid cycle either, so I'll wait til AF is due to do HPT and start the pills. I just really hate to take them but i'd hate to have a BFP as well right now. I'll send the BFP vibes to you.
afm- i think i may be coming down with a UTI..luckily, i used to get them alot so i had some Azo on hand.took some and it seems to help. I totally forgot about the alien pee effect though and I nearly fell off the toilet when i saw it LOL.
trying to push fluids to see if that helps get it out
