Ok, its probably less dramatic than it feels, just because I feel like Veruca Salt, 'I want my girl and I want her now!' So I've still been testing for ovulation even though I thought it passed by, just incase I was wrong, and I was! So yesterday I got dark lines but they weren't 'as dark or darker' but yeah, just about. I was freaking out because we haven't BD'd in 5 days. So of course now that I'm freaking out, NOW I read about the mysterious 'fake O', which would make sense in my situation cause i absolutely thought for sure I O'd on Sun the 13th, but here we are on the 17th and I am Oing! So last night in a 'the line is dark but not too dark' panic, we bd'd. he released as they say ahead of time in a hot shower to do abstenience damage control. We had still been taking our vitamins and sticking loosely to our diet. All I drink at all is Crystal light. we did missionary/shallow. Today the line is confirmatively darker, so if we did it last night and we have the darkest line today does that still give me a 2 day cut off? One day at best? Sigh. What do you think? I just didn't want to waste the month by just waitint til next month after using all these opks and all these vitamins and diet restrictions and crystal light. For what its worth, I think I'm now, finally in the 2 week wait.
Hi there! When I got pregnant with my first child, although I thought it would be a girl, I was thrilled it was a boy. I knew my husband, like most men wanted a boy so I felt so relieved to make him happy, my intention was to only have one, but as time has gone by, I really want a girl too! For a while I was so scared to try because I was afraid it might be a boy, but I think now, much from the help of reading all the forums here, I think I would be ok with two boys, The gender disappointment forum really helped me come to terms with that in advance(which I think is healthier than coming to terms with it in the moment) so if Liam gets a little brother that is ok, but, I desperately do want a girl too! I would be willing to have three to make it happen, and microsort the third, but if its a girl this time around, I'll stop at two! :) I'm getting my IUD out on monday 08/31/09, and I am going to wait one practice cycle (sept) then go full force into shettles and the girl diet, as best I can with my knowledge, I haven't found an 'exact' sample diet, just, eat more of this, less of this etc. so I am going to try my best. I have read the shettles book, and it seems promising. If you tried shettles and got what you wanted or didn't, please let me know :) Thanks for listening to me gab :) ............So, 4 months later, I threw shettle out the window and concentrated on the diet and supplements. I took soy for the month of dec and got pregnant the 1st round on soy! We are thrilled! Now to find out if its a girl or a boy....hummm..it's a boy! Ian was born 08/28/10 8 pds 7 ozs 20 3/4 inches
