Quoting dream:" do you normally go all the way to your due date? if you usually go early, then I think Nov 20 EDD isn't so bad. I'd probably skip the Dec one though."

Thanks hun. I know I seem to get positives at 11dpo. So I'd imagine implant is around 8-9dpo right? Of course who knows if that may have changed too. And with T I went on DD and Kinley we induced at 40 weeks. She would have held out longer, but fluid was low. So based on past then I go all the way.




As I was typing this I had a random thought. With the way temps looked, do you think it looked promising but my body's hormones kicked over too early and started to clean stuff out? Or is that a who knows.

It's really hard to say one way or the other unfortunately. I vote you keep trying and not worry so much about due date unless you really wanted a baby on a certain day.

Weird. I got an ultrasound done at work today for fun by the tech. I wanted to see if she could find a good nub shot for me to obsess over. We couldn't get many views because Peanut likes to hide its junk most of the time. The best one we got she said the genital nub was really short, but the lines on the computer calculated out a nub angle of 4 degrees to the spine which is supposed to be girl range. She tried for some potty shots and there were clearly three lines, but also the nub end sticking out from it a little so she said she'd have to call it an ambiguous gender still. Granted I'm only 11w2d so I didn't expect to get a definitive gender at this point. But now I'm going crazy with all the what-ifs again. I'm kind of leaning toward finding out the gender now since Robbie is so certain it's a girl and the evidence so far seems to point that way. Hopefully I get a better nub shot on my NT scan Thursday and/or I can get that tech to check another potty shot for me.



That brings me back to why I posted here to begin with. Has anyone heard about a short nub being an indicator of gender? She said it seemed to be blending into the body instead of protruding as much as normal for this gestation. I don't what to think or if I should get excited that Peanut might finally be my pink one. LOL

I don't know anything about the nub theory, so I can't help much there, but hopefully in the next few weeks you get some clear shots and I hope you get your girl. tons of pink dust to you. =D

AF is 3 days late. I don't think I'm pregnant since we use condoms every time, but geez. I'd shit a brick if i was pregnant. I just want AF to come so i can stop freaking out about a miracle conception.



No cramps or anything, but I do have the hallow feeling i usually get before AF (I know, weird but i don't know how else to describe it). Hurry up AF!!

I wouldn't even have to do that, I'd just have to say "I shouldn't be fertile today" when I clearly am. He doesn't keep track of it, but he trusts me.
Blasted conscience...

That's how mine is, but it's also don't ask don't tell, so if he doesn't ask I don't volunteer. LOL

LOL Mine asks at the WORST moment.
Probably TMI, but WHATEV...
Getting pregnant aside, it's FRUSTRATING for him to stop or slow down when things are getting good!
Or worse, when it's too late and he has to pull out. Pulling out leaves me with the female version of blue balls. :oops:




Damn I hate condoms.

Hahahaha!!! I know what you mean! I always feel frustrated and angry when he pulls out, but I can't really remember the last time he did that even. I think it was the few months between miscarriage and RJ. And he sucks at condom use anyway, but was excellent at it the first year or two we were dating until we didn't have any and he was too horny to go without. He discovered the joys of condom-free sex. After that, if we used condoms it was for a brief period in the middle of sex. We'd start without, he'd decide to put it one, then take it off a few minutes later. And depending on mood, either finish inside or pull out. Basically pointless to use a condom that way! After finding out I was pregnant again, his friend said he was going to send him back to health class to learn how to use a condom. LOL! I personally hate them and most of them cause me irritation. If I never saw one again I'd be thrilled. We have a few condoms still, but the wrapper said they expired in 2007. :shock:

My dislike of condoms and hormonal contraception makes me tempted to use a copper IUD after giving birth next time around, but I might be too chicken. Ectopic pregnancy is a fear of mine. >.< I want my ovaries, I'm not done having kids!

why not just use FAM? you already know how to temp and chart and everything. no need for hormones or IUDs then.
