No testing for me this month, husband left for work trip today and not home till after ovulation.  This month it's all about the Chinese medicine and acupuncture for me.  Plan is to be super healthy and hang on in there till next month.  Might even start charting too.  Anyone any idea about temps monitoring for shift workers?  Goodnight all, off to switch all the lights on, I hate being on my own overnight, rubbish at sleeping, glad I was working tonight and missed any Halloween movies.

I wanted to change my dp (.. you mean display picture, correct?) but I believe there's a bug in the EB system where they might be marking a photo as deleted but not actually deleting it, and there must be something screwed up with the code.

What happens is: If I go to change my dp, then my old one shows instead.  So I'm stuck with the old one or nothing. Lame!

I don't know when I'll be testing... I don't even know if I'm going to ovulate -.-"
Should I assume that it'll happen CD14? just so I can put my name up on the list?  If that were to be the case, I would be testing...oh it says 26th of Nov... BUT!! DH's bday is the 24th.... maybe I should test then...? (!!!!)

I'm so damn anxious about this house thing.  Feel physically sick (omg I hit 'f' to begin typing that, that's how much my brain is screwed up over this!) with the anxiety I'm experiencing about whether we're gong to get it or not.  I LOVE it.. it's just so so perfect (minus the lack of another BR).  It even has a white picket fence, so DH can feel like he is living the American dream laugh.gif ..in Aussieland.
Speaking of, his family is getting really bad storms this week (they're a little south of where hurricane Sandy is wreaking havoc) and we're not sure if they have their power out or not.. sad.gif crazy nature.

Today is second day of clomid too.... three more to go... and then another week... then another 2 weeks...
I was saying to DH that when I was younger (i.e., 10-12!! Tounge1.gif) I used to think that if you weren't menstruating, then you could get pregnant in any of that 3 week window.. nope. Nope, and more nope. Silly child. It's much more difficult than that.

Okay, going to stop rambling. Hope you all have wonderful days! It's gone from two 30degreesC days in a row to a miserable 18 and raining here (boo) so I'm stuck here behind the computer, researching...... oh wait! I was going to do that anyway, right  rolleyes.gif

So put me down for 24th Nov, just for S&G - I have no idea what my body is up to this month  shrug.gif

Posted 01 November 2012 - 07:23 AM

You must be anxious for the first time we had crossed wires DM...  ddown.gif dp = double post..

hhugs.gif there is no reason to worry DM i am positive you will get the house.

oh right. double post. Heck I've used that acronym before, even last night when I was talking about copying you! haha oh my..

EPS...? eh eh? pre-O EPS, me thinks so! biggrin.gif
"baby brain"

I'll let you guys know if we do or not... it's between us and one other applicant  unsure.gif

I've been getting so wound up with anxiety lately re; finalising thesis, house hunting, TTC, Aeva being sick on and off sad.gif then there are my general worries that a comet will come and destroy those I love but not hitting me so I have to become a lone wanderer, travelling to far and mysterious lands where the grass is made of plasticine and the trees are filled with millions of seamonkeys.
.. this is kind of sounding like that comet wouldn't be so bad afterall laugh.gif  
I kid, I kid (and am now going to go off and worry that because I said that something bad is going to happen to everybody I love)
- damn you magical thinking!!! *shakes fist*

#18 FaithHopeLove

Posted 01 November 2012 - 08:22 AM

Seamonkeys really arent pretty you cant believe the advertising. And the playdoh grass would stick to your feet esp on a hot day....

Aeva has been sick?  unsure.gif awww poor kitty! she ok?

I have a plan for the other applicants we ninja.gif to find out who they are then KA-POW hehe dev (6).gif no more applicants...

Posted 01 November 2012 - 08:29 AM

Morning All!

Can you put me down for the 20th? Admittedly, we're not trying too hard. I should have BD last night, but I was way too tired. Maybe the BD 3 days ago did something. Doubt it though!

Best of luck to everyone else. original.gif I hope y'all get your BFPs this month!

#22 RainRain

Posted 01 November 2012 - 08:45 AM

Btw, I am a fool...I'm testing 23rd Mags [CD29  ddoh.gif ]. Also have realised I should be ov on the 11th and fella leaves on 14th, 3 days later than previously thought. Am also considering going with him if I can find someone to look after the cats for 10 days...anyone want a holiday at noosa for 10days in nov? Right next to the beach? I will leave treats in the fridge!! We will be hanging out in a national park in Sth Vic with lots of koalas...and if if the universe deems it so, I would be testing whilst down whilst down there....that would be pretty cool.

Hope Aeva is ok DM!!! If it is just a vomit here or there that can be normal for cats...just trying to reassure you.

Hi madness, your name suggests you fitting right in here!

Akadia - hmmm hoping you're a late tester!

#23 Poseidon768

Posted 01 November 2012 - 08:55 AM

Aeva's just been kitty sniffling all over everything.  Maybe she has kitty hayfever haha.
The kitty is a spaz, I love her so hheart.gif  I kind of get worried about how I'd juggle baby with kitty because, she really is, Aeva is a demanding little thing.  In her 'active' moments you need to be constantly making sure she isn't destroying things.  
She's basically at my feet now, stretching and being super cute and lazy, occasionally looks at me saying, "What are you talking about? I'm not destructive at all *turns body to attack my books and notes*"

Did give her some grass the other day, she really likes it and we're thinking of getting her some 'kitty lawn'  Anyone have any experience regarding how useful that will be?

[[Aeva was just evicted from the room now.. went to attack my phone charger again *sigh*]] We have banned her from the study (where all of our electronics are now clustered...*double sigh*) unless we're 'supervising' her haha

I like the ka-pow notion FHL .. fits very nicely with my face punching tendencies laugh.gif

w00t party at RainRain's house *bend knee, arm bounce* we are going to TRASH take very good care of the place, yeeeeah biggrin.gif

#24 RainRain

Posted 01 November 2012 - 09:02 AM

Ooh DM I hope it's not cat flu?

I worry about the cats getting neglected if a baby turn up in the house...they are very used to be the centre of attention and are sensitive little creatures but they'll adjust and be fine I know it.
