WICKED: Massive to you Sweetie. We know how you feel.
AFM: Nothing happening here. Just plodding along and will be starting to do my OPK's and Maybe Baby tomorrow in the hope that we catch the golden egg this month. I hope so. It's been a long time coming.
Min - I am so so sorry that AF showed up. I really thought that this was your month. How are you coping? Thinking of you
Wickednails - so sorry you have to join this thread, hope your stay is short & sweet. Hope the cramps have eased now. I guess if you've been expecting the miscarriage then it's a bit of closure for you, but make sure you let yourself grieve properly. How did your dr appointment go? That's great news about your hairdressing apprenticeship.
BB78 - Welcome to the thread as well, I'm sorry about your mc It's such a mixed bag of emotions TTC again. Did you decide to start TTC this month or are you waiting to get the all clear from the dr?
Hopefulandwaiting - Glad your HyCoSy is all booked in!! Bring on the 15th!!
Jazz - That's great news about your DH SA improving!! Hopefully you won't find out whether Clomid makes your cycle longer or it stays the same because you'll get a BFP!! It's all looking good, you've got a nice mature egg from Clomid & your DH's swimmers are olympic quality. (But on the odd chance that AF does arrive, I found that I was ALOT heavier when on Clomid.)
Hopefulmum2b - Man, you sound like you've been working hard on that boat!! Go you!! Did you end up finding some more photos for your scrapbooking? I hope you're telling that egg of yours to wait til DH is home.
Angelbubswithwings - How are you going? it was implantation bleeding. Are you going to POAS or just wait it out a bit longer?
3plus - sounds like the accupuncture is having great effects on both your cycle & your mind.
AFM - CD1 today, AF showed up, but she's being rather nice to me & I'm being nice to myself as well - I had a trip to the hairdresser & a massage today. Now I'm just doing all those odd jobs that you never seem to get around to doing. Hope you all have a great weekend.
Hi to anyone I've missed
Sorry about AF mat but glad she's not being too nasty.
My AF arrived in full force after 12 days - boo to that. It is really heavy and i was sore for most of the tww with cramps and sharp pains so i have no idea what is going on with my body.
Feeling pretty down but trying to be strong about it. I was starting to think today that i wont be able to keep going like this forever, miscarriages, waiting for results, tww - it drives me crazy. But how can i within my heart accept that there wont be anymore babies. Sometimes I feel so down and depressed about it all and wonder what my life is really about and what my future holds. DH and I have only been married for a year and things are so tense and we are at each other and sometimes i just feel so defeated.
Anyway, i hope everyone else is doing ok. I am sure I will feel better tomorrow.
Went off to see my doc today, not much to report to her my hcg level dropped again and have been spotting, while at the docs i started clotting a bit so she said go straight to hospltal.....
So i went home (warning TMI) went to the toilet and have some huge clots come out like around 4 inches, i didnt have this with my last one so was a bit of a shock.
Headed down to the emergency like the doc orded (should of listened to my self, i thought if im bleeding then my body is doing the right thing) but no down the hospital for a D&C waiting 5 friggin hours for the doc to tell me my body is doing the right thing and we should let it run its course.
So thats where im at, not sure if i could this as my cycle, or wait for my next AF?
Thank you all for your ears and support
angelbubswithwings - I'm so sorry AF showed up, our body's play cruel tricks sometimes, huh?
TTC is so terribly hard in itself let alone when we have miscarriages thrown into the mix. I think we put too much pressure on ourselves trying to be strong & putting on a brave face. Now, when I feel like it's all too much & that I'm so overwhelmed by it all, I just let myself be sad. I know in my heart that I want a baby more than anything in this world so eventually I'll pick myself up & start the rollercoaster ride again more positively, but when I'm sad I just be sad. I'm here if you want to chat about anything.
Wickednails - So sorry hun What a pain hanging around the hospital only to be told that. Hopefully the clotting has eased abit now, has it? Rest up & take care of yourself.
wickednails Congratulations about the apprenticeship hope you enjoy it. It sucks when you have to wait so long at the hospital just to be told that.
Hopefulmum2b You always seem to make me laugh. Sounds like you are a very handy person to have around (if you want to build a boat). I will keep my that you will be able to catch that egg at the right time this month.
Min1111 Sorry that your AF showed up. Maybe next month
angelbubswithwings Sorry that AF showed up. I think that we all have periods of time like that, well I know I do anyway. Hopefully your healthy bubba will happen sooner rater then later for you. Can you and your DH get away for a weekend or something and just relax and enjoy being with each other, not think about TTC etc?.
3PLUS1equals4s Sounds like the acupuncture is really helping you. Hopefully with you covering everyday you will end up with a positive result at the end of it. not to mention that I hope what is left of your TWW goes quickly.
matalee Hopefully the "olympic" swimmers do their job. I am not looking forward to my AF being any heavier then normal (TMI but I have found that on months that I do O that I have a REALLY heavy flow anyway). Sounds like you had a great day. Sorry that AF showed up but at least she is being nice about it.
AFM Well I think that AF might be on her way. I have been having some stomach pain (not quite cramps) and I had a few pimples and my ( . ) ( . ) are very tender. I hate how so many of the signs that AF are on her way are also signs of Pregnancy. I can't help but think that it is AF and not pregnancy though. I have also been getting nauseous now and again too but I suffer from reflux so it could just be that.
MATALEE: I try and help DH whenever I can if it makes it easier for him and makes him finish it quicker. But most of the stuff he tries to do himself. He even bought me a beautiful bunch of flowers to say thank you for helping him. Bless.
I didn't even look. I did find some more photos of my fur babies and posted them up on FB. But i'll definitely have to go through the rest of my pics and find some of DH and his mates fishing. Everyone who's ever gone fishing with us is in that scrapbook.
I did another OPK this morning and the test line was so faint that I had to squint to see it, so I guess it's safe to say that we might actually catch eggy on time for once in months! I'm so excited!
for AF showing up. I'm glad that she's being kind to you and not giving you grief. But good for you in pampering yourself. No need to feel miserable when you surf the crimson wave.
ANGEL: for AF rearing her ugly head. I'm sorry you're in so much pain. It's horrible having those cramps.
I'm sorry you're feeling so down in the dumps. Of course you can keep going. I am and i've been on this stupid roller coaster for 4 years! So please don't give up hope. I know TTC isn't the easiest thing and brings so many hurdles and emotions, but you have to think positive and say to yourself that you will have that baby no matter what. And what you and your DH are experiencing are normal. I've been there and done that. DH and I have been together for nearly 17 years and married for over 13 and we have our ups and downs. It's all part of being married and i'm sure the other ladies on here will agree with me. You just have to be there for one another and understand how each other feels with TTC and babies. It takes 2 to tango so you have to make sure that you go in this like a team.
I'm sorry if it feels like i'm giving a lecture, but I hate hearing women like you give up just like that. It breaks my heart. All women deserve to be mums regardless. xx
WICKED: Oh Sweetheart. That's awful. Fancy waiting in a hospital for 5 hours! That's insane. I'm so sorry for what you are going through right now. I know it probably doesn't sound right, but at least you're bleeding/clotting which is a good sign. When I had mine, I didn't count it as a cycle. I waited for my next AF to turn up and took it from there. I hope it passes by real quick for you. In the mean time, rest up and take care. xx
JAZZ: I'm glad I make you laugh. It's my favourite past time making people happy and laugh. I'm kind of like the clown of my family. After all, my favourite actor is Jerry Lewis! I'm always telling jokes and doing or saying silly things.
I try to be handy whenever I can. I guess I have too seeing as DH is away all the time. If something stuff up, I tryo to fix it, otherwise, I ring my dad and he fixes it for me. He's a Jack of all trades my dad.
Thank hun. I did another Maybe Baby and OPK today and the line was very faint, so I guess we could be catching eggy this cycle. It's been months since we've been able to, so with the prospect of finally maybe being in with a chance of getting a BFP is exciting and nerve racking all at the same time. I'm going to do another one tomorrow to see if it gets darker.
Don't give up yet. Those symptoms sounds very promising. I'll have everything crossed for you babe. Maybe you might be telling us some exciting news very soon. So with that being said, here's lots of for you.
AFM: Cyclone Bianca is well and truly on her way. I've spent the morning tying things down and putting stuff in the shed like DH asked. Hope I tied things done well. Had a massive down pour this afternoon with the loudest thunder i've ever heard that my window shuddered and I have roller shutters on them! So far it has stopped and there is no wind what so ever, but the humidity is still hanging around. And i've heard on the TV that she should be past here sometime tomorrow and then will be heading straight down to Mandurah and Bunbury. There's already 51,000 people who have no power and I feel so sorry for them because this humidity is insane. My poor air con is struggling to keep the place cool and I have all my blinds shut! But things should be all back to normal come Monday. Luckily the temp should only be around the mid 30's. DH told me tonight that it got to 47 today where he is and the storm is now passing through his way so it's starting to rain. I hate storms. I love the rain, but i'm a scaredy cat when it comes to thunder and lightning.
Hi Wicked, how are you today? I hope that it has eased a bit for you and your doing ok.
Thanks everyone for your kind words, I don't know what i'd do without you all. I am feeling better today. It's like I go through a grieving process everytime i get AF but then i keep going and everything feels right again. I am looking forward to hopefully getting some answers in Feb when we go back to the recurrent miscarrige clinic. I have had a very relaxing weekend and spent yesterday with my mum and sister which was very much needed.
Only ttc complication now is that DH will probably be travelling this next month or so which ofcourse means that we wont catch that egg. Very mixed emotions because i am glad that we will have a little more savings to make it more flexible when we build our house this year and also it is good because i can focus on losing those last 6 kgs but then it feels a bit sad that there will be no tww this month - well atleast it wont drive me near batty! But I'm not sure when he goes.
I hope everyone is keeping out of the heat and the cyclone.
