Yikes, all these AF problems! Hope they all get resolved ASAP!
I have a random question about ovulation tests and expiry dates. I got about 10 ovulation tests off of Freecycle, all still in their sealed pouches; however, they say they expire in September. I'm assuming the expiry date is one of those things whereby they can't guarantee the accuracy, but there's still an okay chance they'll keep working for a while... The reason I ask is, I wasn't planning on using any after my first full post-Pill cycle, partly because I know the first cycle off the Pill can be anovulatory, and partly just to keep the pressure September and get some new ones for when we start officially "trying" (versus NTNP) in October. So I guess my question is: Has anyone used an expired test before??Estella ~ Helena ~ Miriam ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Ruby ~ Ivy ~ MarillaPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Martin ~ Edmund ~ Fraser ~ Alexander

Back to Name Stealing...
My son actually cried in the car earlier this year (while we were TTC) that someone was going to take his Baby's name and then his Baby wouldn't have a name! It was one of the funniest, and saddest, conversations I've had with my little guy.
We're debating names and taking suggestions. But if you suggest something dumb (like my mom saying Easton when our son is Weston) then, I'm just going to be honest right back. (Or suggesting Melody. I told her this wasn't 1983. But I should name one of the babies River, and tell her it's Melody's new name. (Nerd-alert - it's a Doctor Who reference that my Mom would never ever get.)Mom to Weston Christopher, b. 2008

Grecianern, that's a cute story When my mother was pregnant with my (first) younger brother, my sister and I had very definite opinions on names. If the baby turned out to be a girl, she should be called Sindy, like the dolls. If the baby was a boy, he should be called Blue. Thank goodness our mother paid no attention to us and he ended up a Daniel, lol. Though maybe we were ahead of our time with BlueMother to miss Mila Arden.

@andieta, I had something really similar a few months ago. (Light to heavy spotting, then a normal 5 day period.) It was completely a one-off, though, because my cycle has been totally normal since then. I have no idea what caused it (I haven't ever been on the pill). Hopefully, it's the same for you.
@grecianern, that's really cute (of your son). Is he excited now that you're having twins? I would really love to have twins. My husband has a twin brother, and they have been really close all their life. He also thinks twins would be great.
@milasmama, congratulations! how exciting! I hope it all goes well!
I'm hopefully going to ovulate soon, so we're sort-of in the middle of things here. Random question to anyone living in the UK-- what prenatal vitamins do you take? I'm trying to figure out which ones are actually the best.Sylvie & Hazel & Nora & Alice & SophieHenry & Rowan & Milo & Oliver & Ezra

@maggiefromcanada, I have used ovulation tests that were a month past their expiration date before, they worked just fine. The company cant guarantee the product at that point, so thats why there is an expiration date. I would'nt worry about it too much =) especially if they are still sealed.Married to my dream guy: TTC #1 since March 2012. Nothing yet, but praying.
