thanks Thi Thi. me and DH are taking it easy hes starting to understand a little about this forum. he likes listening to how i describe things and thinks i shud be in nurse Midwifery school now and not putting it off any later. about 2 of my friends are getting ready to give birth and im really excited for them. i went baby shopping with my mom-n-law for my little niece today. i went and kidnapped her from my sis. lol. she is 3wks old and is just now weighing 6lbs. she was 5lbs 8oz when she was born. so while we were shopping my n-law kept saying i was glowing and was asking me if i was PG. i got a little sad but she told me not to stress and it will happen soon enough. she used to not like me cause i am from another race(i'm black and my husband is white), so hearing her say that made me quite happy. she even apologized about the m/c i had in Feb and that she was very sad also from losing her grandchild but just didnt know how to express herself to me since we werent getting along at the time. so she said lets keep baby shopping and hopefully it will jinks me. and my niece is completely spoiled now Laughing out loud
at first i was upset about what my sis said to me but now i dont care when i look at little Ni Ni (short for Amani). i just ignore the smart remarks from my sis is still saying to me.
me and DH are in the middle of a date so i gotta go he's making faces

well I know how family members can be. And I just don't understand how some people can be so judgemental. I was happy to see u reply. This is so cool, it is like a penpal cyber space lol

so first of all I will apologize for the TMI question I am about to ask. I forgot to mention earlier when I post that AF has come. I did some googling before I post this, want ur opinion. Well, I forgot to mention that this AF visit is has been different then all my other one. When I was on bcp it was always a short cycle and usually pink to red color. Even the last 3 months when I was off the pill along (and the length was the same,like I was still on the bcp) then today when I first saw AF it was a brown color and one part it was almost black. When I wipe it was more brown then pink. You can see some pink. So I am just curious if was because my cycle was suppose to start on Sunday Nov 29th and I didn't get it till Dec. 2nd. You think its dark cause I was late? Cause it looks like it could be old blood. or late IB still?

Sorry for keep rambling on and on with this same thing.

Ty Smile

i like the cyber-penpal idea. Big smile and its ok if you have in-depth questions its how you get the answers you need and will feel comfortable about.
when you are on BCP the idea of them is to stop your ovaries from producing eggs, but what it also does is it thins out your lining in your uterus so there can be no implantation. so if you have blood that comes out and is darker than a maroon color that is considered old blood that did not come out when you had your last cycle. since you are off your BCP your body has to build up that lining and also jumpstart your ovaries into making eggs again.
imagine your uterus in a Y shape, now when you have your cycle the blood and tissue slide down and come out your cervix opening. sometimes the blood or tissue gets left on the lip of the cervix opening and your body then tries to absorb it back. it tries to. and that is why you end up with brown blood cause it is tissue that has no oxygen supplied to it and is just dead. so it is good that you are passing "bad blood" cause that means your body is back on track. after this cycle i would use OPKs to see if it says that you are ovulating but try not to do anything to give your body chance to develop a good thickness for the baby and placenta to settle on, and it can also produce multiple PG. when your ovaries kick in it can put out 2 eggs at a time for the first 2 cycles. and if you get a positive OPK on this cycle then start TTC on the next cycle.
let me know if i can answer anything else

You are so lucky to have a little one to hold when you start getting wistful. I think my husband is having a melt down. Because his neice was born on Sunday so he has baby fever.
I am trying to relax at 3dpo and not test early. My birthday on December 14th is when my period is due. Talk about pressure to be pregnant because that is really what I want for my birthday. I am also sick so I am just trying to get better and get ready for Christmas.

Thi Thi-do you think you will take test?

well I'll keep my FX for ya babiesRUS2010!

well I think mine is officially a AF, cause she decided to stick around for a little bit longer Sad I hope not too long lol ready to start again this month. I was happy that when I told my DH yesterday that AF finally showed her face and with a vengence ugh.... I can't believe how more pain I am than when I was on the bcp. I remember the only thing I feel was a little discomfort and achiness. Been soooo long since I first started taking them, totally forgot lol

Wifeynmommy1-

Thanks for the information, it was very helpful! Just didn't want to sound so dumb, with all the questions. Sometimes it is nice to be able to ask someone and get a reply instead of googling it all the time and readiing it till my eyes hurt LOL. Well I am glad that my body is showing signs that it is trying to get back on track, it was scary when I read online about women who wasn't even get a period when they stop and have to be put on medication to jump start.

yea girls our bodies are something else. i think we are all on diff steps of the cycle. past ovulation, heading towards ovulation and just now starting AF.

BabiesRUS2010- hang in there in the 2ww. that would be a perfect birthday and christmas present to yourself. when i was PG last Christmas i put the date in a box on a piece of paper, and when DH came back from his family vacation he opened it and read the paper. looking at me funny like what is this and then he say the ultrasound pic i had done just for the occasion and almost cried. If you are sick then you can take baby medication for colds and coughs. the liquid form hits faster and is a little bit better in a few days.

Thi Thi- dont be worried about asking questions thats what we are here for. to me it doesnt matter if you think its the most gross question ever. i have worked with the dead, the truck drivers (and prostitutes they bring with them), and nursing homes so i can handle just about anything. i have a farm and i get to shove my hands and arms in female cows, goat, and horses for Artificial Insemination, so nothing can gross me out i had to develop a strong stomach. so just ask away.
you should be able to start TTC next month. since your cycle seems to be back on track dont forget to test using OPKs this cycle

Hey Steel Lotus,

Welcome to our group. How long have you been ttcing? Feel free to talk about anything. We pretty much don't have any topics that are tmi:bigsmile:

This is weird, last month I had so many symptoms in my two week wait. I have no cramping, no boob pain, but only day of ovulation twinge. Last month I had aunt flo like cramping at 4dpo and 5 dpo and big boobs. It must be because I am battling a cold.
