I am a huge fan of acupuncture too. We got pregnant the first cycle we used acupuncture as well, and when we had a threatened miscarriage, my acupuncturist did moxibustion that seemed to help. And yes, for the being so relaxing!

Chiveggie, I did acupuncture to my 9th month (I just didn't feel like going into the city when I was that big) and I feel like it was really helpful (had a very easy labor and an easy baby).

Day 56 of my cycle. Don't know when (or if) I ovulated because we were camping when I thought I was going to so I stopped temping, aaaaaannnnndddddd... yeah. That was a month ago. I took a HPT just over a week ago and it was negative. Feeling nauseated allatimes, which has been an off-and-on PMS symptom for me, but it's been over a week and I'm still waiting for my stupid period. Thinking about talking to my husband about just stopping trying for a while, because it's making my anxiety 1000000% worse.

Well, then you will get pregnant for sure! (sorry, I just had to say it)

@AlwaysHungry...I was searching for something else on PPK, and your post about charting came up in the results. Just wanted to say that you *can* do pretty accurate charting if you are on Metformin. I had a really hard time with temps because of not waking the same time each day, so I gave up on that bit, but cervical position and fluid were easy to detect once ovulation got jump started with the Met and acupuncture. Still took us about 6-7 months once everything was working properly and we um, knew what we were doing (hee), but then bingo...two pink lines!

Man, my husband is not digging the scheduled sex. Something about having to do it on a certain day practically kills his sex drive. I mean, he still does it, but sometimes barely. I'm running out of ideas on how to jazz it up, I guess my pr0n star skillz are just not up to par. I have to come up with something that will dazzle Mr. Crafter.

Just venting/musing.

(TMI: Maybe I'll try the ol' business suit and high heels routine.)

75 days. That's how long my last cycle was. I'm relieved that my period FINALLY started, but so frustrated with this whole thing.

75 days is not fun. I had one or two of those as well. So frustrating.

75 days is a long time to wait. Sorry you are going through that, Poopie.

Crabby, how are you? Haven't seen you around lately.

Awww, you missed me! ;D I just haven't been on the computer a lot lately. I stopped by the other day to mention I'd been spotting (even though my temps were still up), but forgot to post that when I saw Poopie's 75 day cycle. Yesterday, I was 15 DPO and felt like I'd been drugged, I was soooo tired. I took a PT to try to shake myself out of it, but it was positive. (!!) I didn't think those cheap-o PTs from Amazon would show anything this early; yesterday was day 33 of my cycle. I feel like, because it's soooooo early, that it might just go down the chute in a week or two anyway, though. I'd've never even thought to take a test this early if I hadn't been charting. I'm hopeful, but trying not to get too excited because it's too early. (I hope it sticks, though -- my husband and I got into a doozy of a fight over scheduled sex this cycle.)

The difference between this cycle and previous ones is that Raygold had stopped night nursing completely (last cycle) and I was taking 2 chasteberry pills a day until I ovulated (along with the maca powder and B6 I've been taking for months -- I had been taking 1 chasteberry a day for the previous 2 cycles, but heard doubling-up and then stopping at ovulation was better for some women) -- I think it's more the night-nursing that made such a difference. I ovulated 2 days earlier and everything.

Exciting CrabbyCrafter!!! Sending your little bean "sticky" vibes :)

Post subject:  Re: conceivin' thread

Whoa, super exciting Crabby! I hope this one sticks for you - congratulations! Maybe I need to focus on getting poopiebaby to quit the night boobin'. How old is Raygold again?

Post subject:  Re: conceivin' thread

Raygold is nearly 2 years and 5 months. I never thought he was gonna stop night boobing, phew!
I swear, I already have the preggo burps. And, like I said, I already feel horribly, permanently sleepy, like I've been drugged (I'm kind of a lifelong insomniac -- not in a bad way, I'm just a light sleeper -- and the only time I ever sleep through the night is when I'm pregnant). I'm not looking forward to when morning sickness hits (although it's a good sign that the li'l bean is sticking). I wish they sold Verner's ginger ale here; it's so dry.

I'm still spotting a little. It's just a tiny bit and old blood, so I'm not worried. (I never spotted with my other pregnancies, though.)

Post subject:  Re: conceivin' thread

Well, poopiebaby is almost 2 years and 3 months, so maybe soon?

I spotted with poopiebaby and everything was perfect. I know you know that it usually doesn't mean anything is wrong, but it is still human nature to be a little worried. Come on crabby bean!

Post subject:  Re: conceivin' thread

very exciting Crabby. Hopefully that little baby sticks. Hopefully Poopiebaby will wean and that will get your body signaled it's time to do it again.

I'm 11 weeks now. The bloated feeling has finally subsided for the most part (carb loading isn't helping that though). I've still bypassed morning sickness, but fatigue has hit. I do okay during the day, but my new bedtime is between 8-8:30 because I can't keep my eyes open longer than that.

Congrats, Crabby! Thinking sticky thoughts for you!

I had tons of spotting when I was pregnant with Lydia-- weeks 5 through 8 I had almost continual spotting, but for the twins, I've had none so far. So strange.

And yeah, for me, no night nursing was the key to my periods regulating themselves. Good luck Poopie!

Ugh, my temp was WAY down today. Like, just below the coverline -- it was 36.64 when it's been ~37. Ever since i started charting, once my temp drops that much, my period was on its way (although I never made it this far). PT was a positive, but that doesn't mean anything because if it didn't stick, the hormones would still be in my pee, I think. The temp could be a fluke because the kids woke me up earlier than usual, but I'm not even tired. Ugh. UGH!
I guess I'll know for sure tomorrow morning when I take my temp or earlier if I get my period. Booo.

Oh Crabby. Hopefully it was a fluke from waking up earlier.

Well, my temperature was up a teeny tiny bit today -- only 0.8°C, but it's above the coverline again and my period didn't arrive last night. *fingers crossed*

This is going to sound silly, but I think the reason I was so horribly tired 2/3 days ago was because I maybe had the flu! I knew my temp was up, but it was even higher than usual and I was cold all day (but it's getting to be that time of year again and I just figured that was why). But my husband was feeling under the weather yesterday and I was thinking about how my back had been achy (my back doesn't even ache when I'm pregnant!) and it occurred to me that maybe I was ill and that's why. Doh!

Are you going to do another test, do you think CC?

Stay baby stay. :)
