    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    @KKJohnson Aww, I love the squirrel costume! Theo was a pea pod :D Good luck with the poop issue! Our guy is an infrequent pooper also. He just had a small to moderate poo this morning after going a bit over 4 days with nothing, but I'm pretty sure there's more to come. Our longest stretch was 6...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Yay! I'm so happy to see this thread moving again! What a bunch of cuties we have around here. Babyblue, it looks like you're going to have your hands full with that little guy! As much as it'll be nice to get my arms back occasionally once my boy can sit and entertain himself a bit, I think I'm...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Aww, congrats! Blaire is gorgeous! I've been meaning to pop in here some time (and also post my birth story on the preggo thread, but then I wrote it out and it was wayyy too long to expect anyone to ever read :lol:). Glad to see your little girl is doing well! Looks like you made it a little...

    Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

    OB appointment this morning was good and generally uneventful. She didn't seem concerned about the rash on my arms and agreed it looks like it could be allergy-related, but I still don't know where that could have come from. Maybe my dogs got into something weird in the yard this week? Our grass...

    Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

    How crazy to find a due date twin like this! I'm jealous of your chiro appointments -- mine just does an adjustment, not much of a massage. That sounds heavenly! I am happy that my chiro is certified in the Webster technique, though (and is a mom of 3 herself, so she definitely knows what's up)...

    Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

    Hi, KK! You look fantastic!! I'm so thrilled to see someone posting in this thread. I've actually been rereading a lot of it (I used to lurk in these threads quite a bit when I was newly married but nowhere near ready to TTC, but this whole section of the forum really died out over the past few...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    Thanks, Asscher! I wrapped up one of my tests with a onesie for DH when he got home from work. He was thrilled, but not shocked. He said he didn't want to get my hopes up, but he just had a feeling a few days ago that this was our month. He's been really sweet today asking me how I'm feeling...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    Sooo...I did a thing this morning. Dipped a wondfo with FMU, and at first, I thought it was totally negative again, but upon looking closer I could swear there was a hint of a shadow of a line (and it had only been 5 minutes or so). So faint I don't think anyone would believe me. But I had a...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    Hi, BM! I didn't see your post until just now. Yes, I have been temping this cycle. I started opks at CD 12 and got positives on CD 16 and 17, and my temp dipped a little on CD 17 and popped up on CD 18, kept climbing through CD 21 and has stayed high since. It also matches up with exactly when...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    CD 11, so not much to report here. I'm expecting to ovulate around CD 17. But I had a rather vivid dream about being pregnant last night. I don't remember much except that I kept feeling my stomach to make sure it was real/still there; I could feel the baby really clearly and had a hard spot...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    Thanks to you both! A friend of mine who had a beautiful little girl a few months ago gave me her CBE digital OPK with about a dozen sticks left (and not expired for another month or so), so I'm going to give that a shot this month and see if it tells me any more than the internet cheapies I...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    Well, AF showed up Saturday. It was not a fun weekend, but at least I had some wine. The good news (maybe?) is that I just had a 28-day cycle for the first time ever. Of course my cycle would pick now to try to be normal. I think I'm going to start temping this cycle just so I feel more...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    Well, I broke down and bought a pack of FRERs despite no more of a line on the wondfos. And... BFN. I know it's still pretty early and it's only our second month trying, but sheesh! I was sooo emotional this morning. I think part of it is also that most of my "symptoms" seem to have...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    Thanks for checking in, BM! Well, it's official. I've become a crazy person (again). I think I'm 9dpo today. Maybe 10. Not temping, but basing on OPKs. Anyway, after telling myself I wouldn't test early this month I of course did anyway. Yesterday I thought I got super faint lines on two...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    Thanks so much, Asscher! I know there are other forums out there on various cycle tracking apps and such, but I haven't found them anywhere near as supportive or generally well-informed as members here and I always hoped I'd have this thread to come to when it was time. I had positive OPKs...

    The Official TTC Thread!

    Hello if anyone is out there! I used to spend way too much time reading PS boards years ago when I was first engaged and married, and I lurked here and in the JBP/Preggo threads for quite a while even though I was nowhere near ready to TTC. Now my DH and I have been married almost 7 years, I...

    Dog Experts Neutering Question

    I have two golden retrievers, 5 and 3 years old. They are father and son, actually. Both are still intact, and we have never had behavioral issues with either of them. They don't have an aggressive bone in their bodies, they very rarely hump and are easily deterred if they do. The only time one...

    Does anyone else take Synthroid for an underactive thyroid?

    Re: Does anyone else take Synthroid for an underactive thyro I know this might be easier said than done, but please, please find a new doctor as soon as possible. The fact that your doctor not only won't change your medication, but blatantly ignores your symptoms or worse... is just completely...

    Does anyone else take Synthroid for an underactive thyroid?

    Re: Does anyone else take Synthroid for an underactive thyro I was on levothyroxine for about 6 months, then levo. plus cytomel for another 6 months, which was better, but my levels still wouldn't stay up. Then my doc switched me to Armour, which I've been on for about a year now, with just one...

    Beauty Products You Are Loving...

    Packrat, I have never used jamberry products, but I have been doing my own gel polish for almost a year and I love it. I have quite a few different brands of color, but my base and top coats are Gelish brand. There is a little bit of a learning curve to application, and it definitely takes more...

    Luxury chocolate brands?

    My chocolate came yesterday. Sooo good!

    Luxury chocolate brands?

    I got the general assortment that has both. I do like dark chocolate, so it's hard to say, but I don't think theirs is too bitter compared to some.

    Luxury chocolate brands?

    Thanks for the heads up! I may have just ordered myself 2 pounds of chocolate... don't tell my DH! I have been in love with Leonidas since I tried it in Belgium 11 years ago, and I get it maybe once every two years. Nothing else measures up for me, and I am a serious chocoholic (it's heredity)...

    Henna

    I have never used henna for body art, but I do use it on my hair. I suspect the reason some of you aren't getting a nice stain is in the preparation. It's possible the henna used has a low lawsone (the compound in henna that dyes) content or it didn't dye release properly before application...

    The Running Thread

    SMC, are you still at it? I really need some motivation! I haven't run much in several weeks, mostly because my DH can't run for at least another week or two probably. And things get busy and we make excuses not to exercise. That said, I have lost 5 pounds in the last two weeks, so that's...

    Not everyone wants kids

    Yeah, there is a big difference to me between my best friend asking once if we think we are going to have kids and my MIL asking at least once a month for the past three years when we're going to have a baby already. And I just turned 28, so she recently added a "but you're going to be 30...

    The Running Thread

    Right now I'm running on the treadmill, but mostly because I can't stand the hot weather. Hopefully it will cool down in a few weeks, and then I'll switch to outside to get used to more realistic race conditions. I'm thinking I should try to find a 5k to do in a month or so, too. I was going to...

    The Running Thread

    Hey, SMC, I'll jump on here with you! I've been trying to run on and off for almost three years now. I could never run worth anything before, but decided to try the couch to 5k program on the treadmill, and it worked really well for me. I've had a lot of stops and starts due to crazy work...

    Who Cuts Their Own Hair Around Here?

    azstonie, I really just winged it for the angled bits around my face. I'd love for them to catch up with the rest of my length but I just get way too many split ends and broken hairs there. I basically did that part last by taking really small sections at a time and vertical cutting into the...

    Who Cuts Their Own Hair Around Here?

    Timely topic! I was just noticing yesterday that my ends were looking really sad, but I didn't want to go pay $40+ for a trim, while also risking the stylist taking off more length than I want, since I'm growing my hair long. It's about halfway down my back now so I can pull the ends around to...
