CD32 of NTC2

Still awaiting for AF. I feel like it's right around the corner. I'm pretty bloated, crabby, and crampy. I guess I shouldn't rush it too much, because the longer it takes to get here, the more likely we can catch a fertile period in April (when we'll be together I mean).

CD30 of NTC2

I'm pretty sure I will have AF arriving any day. I'm been having major cramps. So bad in fact that I had to use my heating pad last night. I can't even remember the last time I had to do that. I'm a bit sad because I really was hoping to we caught the egg and maybe I had a little miracle growing inside. But, after this cycle finishes we should only have 1 more cycle of NT (not trying) before we get to start TTC hardcore again. That's something to look forward to.

CD28 of NTC2

This past week has brought the birth of my cousin's daughter, and numerous pregnancy announcements from people I know. To say that I'm not a little envious would be a lie. I really can't wait to be carrying a little miracle inside of me again, I can't wait for another chance to have the birth that I want, and I am really looking forward to another chance to breastfeed (and I am hopeful it will be successful).

I know the chances that we caught the egg while I was visiting Georgia are slim, but I am still slightly hopeful and optimistic. It would be the perfect souvenir to bring back from GA. The thing that truly sucks is with my pretty irregular cycles I'm not even sure when I should be expecting AF. My last two cycles were I believe 31 days but the one before that was 40+ days. So, I'm going to guess that somewhere over the next 3 days or so it should be here, but who knows.

So, I'm here, I'm waiting.. impatiently at best. I'm praying and hoping that God has decided to bless us this month.

Oh and by the way.. To see my son with his younger cousin, and be so loving, gentle, and helpful.. Melts my heart! I cannot wait to see him as a big brother. I know he will be amazing!

CD17 of NTC2

Just wanted to do a little update. I don't want anyone thinking I've abandoned this blog. I hope to get this blog quite busy again once my hubby is home.

Had quite an increase in CM this morning and having some twinges. Thinking ovulation is probably coming pretty soon. Hoping that maybe, just maybe, it will hold off until like Saturday or Sunday or next weekend. Only time will tell..

CD9 of NTC2

So, as any neurotic ttc will do, I plugged my cycle dates in an ovulation calculator, and was pleased with results. I will be seeing my husband from February 18-21. WebMD has a calculator that allows you to enter the date of your last 3 cycles and guesstimates your ovulation dates from a culmination of your last 3 cycles. I know ovulation calendars are not an exact science, but the dates it told me I would be most fertile were February 17-21. This means, according to WebMD, we may have a chance. I had completely thought this short liason wouldn't be during the right time. But, now I have regained hope. We'll see what happens. If we don't catch the egg, then we'll be back to full out ttc come mid April. So hopefully, fingers crossed, we will have a bun in the oven before Joseph turns 3.
