Yay for free healthcare! As for mat leave, I'm pretty sure I won't be getting that as today was my last day at my job in the city. I'll be working on the farm with DH!

Hey ELHERR!

I too am in Alberta! Calgary, actually Smile There's a few of us on here, as you saw from the other girls' posts.

I've been away from this site for a long time, I got pregnant and was updating frequently and then just kinda lost all my oomph. I'm trying really hard to get on here more often so I can at least keep up with the girls and write down my experiences, as I've been kicking myself for not having a pregnancy journal.

I read your posts and I have my fingers crossed for you! DH and I tried for 8 months before we conceived, but we were lucky and didn't have any complications. I have great faith in pre-seed! That stuff works, I swear! There are a lot of awesome fertility products on that website, I hope one of them works for you!! I'm glad to hear that though your cycle is still wonky, at least it's much shorter and manageable. Things are at least heading in the right direction!

Anyways, I look forward to seeing more posts!

Babydust!

Just got back from a weekend get away to Calgary with DH (and his bro and his gf). Went to Calgary tower and stood on the glass floor, no hands! Went shopping at cross iron, go cart racing at a sketchy place, shopping at home sence and south center malls and toured heritage park... Plus ate 5 meals at 5 different restaurants (endless shrimp at red lobster claimed all the men in our group)! I really enjoyed the trip and it was great to reset my mind and remember how much I love family togetherness... Also took a couple days off from bbt charting, POAS and playing with the saliva microscope.

Tomorrow I'm starting a workout challenge, I'm sure you've all heard of T25... So excited! Tomorrow also marks our first real day of me being a "farm wife", hoping I'm a natural at it!

Lindsay... It's so good to hear you didn't have any problems... I hope your pregnancy had been a great experience so far and that you and baby are happy and healthy!

Hey! It sounds like you had a wonderful time in Calgary with your family!!!! We were there in June!! It is such a lovely place. We also saw Heritage Park, it was really fun. The downtown was just getting over the flooding so we didn't get to spend much time there. We were visiting my best friend from highschool who moved there last year. I bet it was nice to not have TTC on the brain for a few days to eh?

How is being a farm wife going, on your first day!! I saw you write "ranch" on an earlier post so I'm assuming you have beef cattle? Do you have any other animals? I grew up on a dairy farm in Ontario, and it is absolutely wonderful way to spend your childhood! DH and I live in the country just outside of a small town in Ontario, but unfortunately farming is no longer part of my life. Luckily my brother and sister continue to farm to this day, so I'm going to be passing our children on to them every once and awhile so they get to experience a little bit of that lifestyle.

I hope the T25 challenge goes well. It sounds very intense!!! Have you done anything like it before? I just started the Boot Camp workout last week. Oh my gosh was I sore, DH laughed at me when he watched me climb the stairs! I felt better just in time for the second session last night, haha! Today I'm feeling great though. The first workouts are always the toughest. Luckily my instructor is great. I figured it was time to try and tone up a bit again. Hopefully our exercise routines will help lead us both to a BFP!!

First few days of farm wife life complete! I think I could get used to this! Ha ha ha. A lot more time to communicate with friends and family, plus unlimited time with DH (and opportunity for bd!)

Have been checking bbt every morning and it looks like I got the temp. shift this morning... But still no positive on OPK, and saliva is still "transitional"... What's up with that? Also breaking out like a teenager in high school:(

DH and I are participating in a 5K this weekend (a fundraising event for the arena where my nephews play hockey). Hoping all the working out will provide a little extra stamina ha ha ha as my 5K's seem to be more of a walk than a run, but I'm there to participate not win a trophy... That's more my sisters speed

tlee- I can so relate to sore muscles after a workout! I haven't been experiencing it too bad with T25 but I had a hard time even getting out of my car after running my first 5K this spring... I totally didn't pace myself properly.

I also wanted to write about the dream I ha last night that I'm pretty sure was a message to me to stop worrying so much about getting pregnant... Basically I was in the dream taking a pregnancy test and it said "Pregnant-c" on it when it was complete... Not knowing what it meant I gave my friends each a test to take themselves and everyone got something different like "not pregnant" or "pregnant-m/c" or "pregnant-s"... I am guessing m/c is miscarriage and s is surrogate (I have a friend who is having a baby in 6 weeks through a surrogate) what could c mean??? Conceiving? Chemical? Crazy???

So here I am at 11 dpo so I couldn't resist taking a hpt... Bfn. I was quite hopeful for this month... But I guess I can always test again in a few days.

Ok! Went to the dr today and she gave us the requisitions for more blood work from my self and a semen test for DH. DH is so not thrilled with the idea of producing a "specimen". Although with my next vist to the dr for the results from our tests we will be getting referred to the specialist in town!
I hate to admit it but part of me is happy my husband now has to do a test (and finally understand how I feel with always being tested).
