Wow, thanks for the zany stories about sleep talking! He really doesn't remember it and he says what he said is not true.
My only thoughts are trying some galactalogues as Lydia suggested. Domperidone, blessed thistle and fenugreek worked wonders for me when AF came back at 4 months and completely tanked my supply every month (and it didn't rebound like it was before).
I confess that part of me thinks I'm very selfish.
I want a house. We are probably building one this spring and moving in June so we can get the tax credit. If it was up to DH, he would keep renting and just saving a lot of money every month. I do not want to do this and have been pushing for the house. He is scared....very scared. He doesn't like change and is very slow to move on things. Took him several dates to kiss me (and only after I asked if he was ever going to kiss me!), 2 years to get engaged, another 3 after that to get married. Took about 4 years into marriage to try for a baby and well that hasn't seem to come about as planned. When I wanted a new car, took me 18 months to get it and quite a few visits to the dealership.
Now with a house, we have been talking about it forever. Looked at them in 2004 and again in 2005. Put an offer in on one in April this year but sellers wouldn't play. Have been talking with the builder since May....know which lot and have our plan. Nothing excessive....3 bed, 2 bath ranch house. We even looked up the land to make sure that it wasn't any kind of flood plain (DH went to school and got his degress in geology...doesn't use them but they were helpful for this).
his mom and his uncle were up visiting over the weekend and saw a similar house the builder has done and were impressed with the quality. Helped up pick out the lot. They both approved and thought that this was a great idea, good investment and that we should go for it. This would be a dream house for us and we would only ever move again if we had to leave the town for some reason.
We can afford this house...we will still be able to save each month, just not as much as we can renting.
DH is a worrier. I think that deep down he really wants the house and likes the idea and thinks that financially its the best thing to do in the long term. I just wonder if it is selfish of me to push him into doing something that scares him. About the only way he wouldn't be scared though would be if we waited another 10 years for a house and could pay over half in cash.
She's only just recently started going to church and it's worked wonders for her anger management. I can't believe how well she can control herself now because she thinks she has to. It's kinda cute.
I confess I feel like I am kicking this houses butt today, and in all reality all I have done is 3 loads of laundry, and started the dishwasher... lol
I confess sMIL commented to me last night after dinner that she "doesn't know how I do it all - especially with TWO kids"
I confess dinner last night was just a OAMC meal that I pulled out of the freezer, and popped in the oven.
I confess that I just found out the dr that dbf has been going to for his headaches is actually a counselor/psychiatrist. I'm totally flabbergasted and wondering what the deal is.
Gad, I hope he's not sleeping with her. Wouldn't that be grand?
Squee! I confess...NKOTB Dec. 20 Boston House of Blues! omg omg!
Now if the ticket website doesn't crash and I can get my tickets on the 14th...(ever since the new kids have come back, the fans have crashed all the ticket sale and contest sites because they weren't prepared for the madness LOL)
I'm debating dragging DH with me, but I can't decide if he'll be a killjoy because he won't enjoy it that much, or if he'll just wander off and find some other lost guys and some beer and have a great time LOL
I confess that I like my ticker baby again!! It looks so grown up now and those ugly veins in the face are gone!
I confess that Jimi informed me today of a diary he has at work. Every morning his outlook pops up with it and he adds a note for the day on some days. Oh, my, goodness. He sent this diary to me via email and he has logged just about everything along our entire course of trying to conceive and up until 10/26. It isn't quite daily but every appointment, every pertinent bit of information is on it and it melted my heart.
I confess that I thought about sharing but am kind of worried you guys would think I was weird if I did.
OH and YES, your baby looks so much more normal!! Won't be long until you find out the sex! Wait...are you going to find out???

Okay here it is, as you can tell he has a classy way with words sometimes. You'll know the two parts I am referring to.
031109 - I think I have to spooge in a cup today. We have our first appointment with the reproductive clinic this afternoon.
031209 - We had our first baby making appointment yesterday and they put Janeen on Metformin which could completely mess with her system. We'll see how she reacts to it and go from there. I'm excited.

051509 - Early Test was negative this morning.

081109 - Everything is going as planned and we inseminate tomorrow at 8am.
081209 - My count a little low at 4 Million. Sperm counts below 5 Million have a very low success rate. Doubtful we will conceive this month. We'll see if they did their magic in two weeks.
