Alix: That will happen (the winded easily) thing, it is a normal part of pregnancy, unfortunately.. I used to have the same problems, when before i was PG i could run up and down my 17 stairs easily without getting winded. I noticed really early on I started feeling like I couldnt get my breath .. I thought it was ridiculous, considering how tiny i was lol. Oh well. But i would mention it to the dr. anyway.
afm- AF was supposed to come today, (and for some reason a whole weeks worth of temps arent showing on my chart either? but when i check my data they are there). No cramps, no nothing.. I know I got it later in the day last month, about this time..but Im not even getting cramps. Worried slightly, even though DH and I used protection every single time we BD'd this month..and I mean every single time..no oops it could have happend moments. lol. We were really good about that.
However, my nipples are suuuuupppppeeeerrrrrr sensitive like they were when I got PG.. Hoping something didnt malfunction and AF is just being fashionably later than usual? If anything I've learned the last 2 cycles, it has been that my body is still O on day 14 and AF on day 28...where are you AF?!

Sorry everyone, I don't have a computer at home! lol.
So my appointment on the 3rd a follow up to my hormone testing. I think I'm gonna call today and get started on clomid this cycle.

Alexx- I think that if your doc wanted you to follow up than it's probably a good idea.
Alix- Usually "quickening" people don't feel until a little later. A lot of women can feel it sooner with their second baby.
Brie- That's exciting and scary that Layla is walking! Maybe AF is just being stubborn. Time will tell, but it sounds like you were careful.
AFM- Just waiting to see when AF will show up, too. Feel like it should be in the next few days or so. The only thing I've had is a little bit of a sore back which is a sign she could be coming.

Tara- How does Clomid work? When do you start taking it? What are some side effects? How long have you been taking it? What's your story? You can private message me If you want

Alix: I felt layla's first flutters at 14 weeks, and i thought it was a bug running across my belly because it was like a tickling sensation. I didnt feel much else til about 18 weeks. 10 weeks is a little early. Just a few weeks momma! hang in there!
Tara: we were extremely careful.. like he didnt even get near me unless the rain slicker was on..lol. Im just hoping none had holes in them. I did find a pin needle next to one of the condoms on the counter one day. DH laughed it off when I said "thats NOT something you want to see lying next to each other!!" ... But I dont think he did anything as he is on board with waiting until I graduate before considering it.. a few months ago I might have thought he would have done that on purpose lol.
afm- No sign of AF still.. sooooo odd.. because Ive always been like clockwork. the last time and only time I was late, i was PG with layla bug. well, time will tell. If by some crazy reason I was PG somehow.. It'd be just meant to be by the Lord because we dang sure tried to prevent.

Brie- I hope AF makes her appearance soon for you. It is possible for people to get AF and be pregnant, so if she doesn't show up maybe it was from the month before when you weren't quite as careful? Let's just hope she doesn't stay away.
Tara- Is this another unmedicated cycle? I don't recall you saying anything about meds this time, but I very well could have missed that. I hope AF stays away for ya.
Alexx- I took Clomid for 2 cycles when I got pregnant with Nathan. I didn't really notice any side effects, possibly some hot flashes.
Alix- I don't think I REALLY felt Nathan until further along, though I can't recall when exactly. I do know that I had gas moving around that was tricking me in the early stages as well.
AFM- We went and had Nathans pictures with his cousin. Super cute. Nathan does NOT like wearing his costume, not even kind of. I'm glad we went for normal pictures first or I might have none of him. Oy.

Amy: Thank you. I never had a period while I was PG, I bled for a few minutes after BDing (same day pretty much).. followed by some brown goo the next day.. DH thought for sure he "killed" the baby at that point..lol. As we can see, the bug is just fine!! I was 2 days late at that point and still getting a bfn, it took 4 days late to get a faint positive. But I had never been late, in the 10 years I had gotten AF, every 28 days, like clockwork...so I knew immediately when I didnt wake up to AF and she didnt make an appearance, that something was up. Im left hmmming right now as well. My cycle last month was 5 days and really clotty..so I doubt i was pg.. Will you post some of the pics from yesterday to your blog?
Tara: Your next appointment is coming up in a few weeks isnt it?! Hopefully AF wont show and you wont need it.. so you can send AF my way and I'll send PG vibes your way. deal? lol
afm- still no AF. no cramps either, Im getting odd "twingy" feelings but they arent painful. And man I am tired! Super emotional and bb's/nipples still sore. Totally could go either way. Hopefully the twinges are AF trying to make her appearance. My temp was up slightly as well.. I thought for sure I wouldnt have to worry about anything this month, since we used protection every single time.
