    Zammy - be brave.. When I read your posts it's like taking a walk in my shoes but you're a month behind...
    Last month I was exactly like you. My best bud just 'fell pregnant' - I was so brave in front of her then cried myself to sleep. It's just so heart breaking to know others can just 'grab' the thing you're working so hard to get...
    Trust me you'll get there!

    Windupbird and Lissa - congratulations.. you are the inspiration that we all need. Celebrate girls.. you deserve it!
    Kellijh - good luck...
    Sammy - you'll be fine.. My favourite saying is "put your big girl pants on" (ie - be brave!)
    Ellymoe - It's women like you that make the world shine.. well done for being there for your friend.

    So update from me - Currently on the TWW... after my first round of clomid! Spirits are high.. Hubby is possitive - I can only hope that this is my turn.. my month.. After nearly 2 years of trying something has to go right! Specialist is only giving me 3 months on clomid then onto IVF... no more mucking around..

    Default Tww...

    Hi Ladies,
    A friend sent this to me. Thought it was gold..

    14 Things to Do when 14 Days Seem Like Forever, by Lynn Steen
    Please note that this is a humourous article and is not intended as advice.
    As any woman who is trying to get pregnant can tell you, the two weeks from ovulation to the due date for your next period are pure torture. You promise yourself you’ll just wait it out, distract yourself with other activities and you won’t even THINK about taking a pregnancy test until you’re at least a day overdue. Then something happens – your breasts start hurting in a slightly different way than they did before, you get slightly nauseous, you have some spotting, or nothing happens, but you find yourself waking up wishing you could go to sleep again so that it would be another day closer to knowing. You can’t think, you can’t sleep, you can’t work, and you start taking HPT’s days before they are even possibly meaningful. You are deep in the abyss of THE TWO-WEEK-WAIT!
    In my opinion, it’s no use advising women to stop obsessing, it’s impossible. Instead, I give you a list of more productive ways to obsess. Please note, however, that there is a limit that each woman must define for herself, between indulging in some baby daydreaming and going overboard. I’ve included some examples below:
    1. Take a walk around your neighborhood and figure out what will be the best route for strolls with the baby. Find areas with nice pavements and easy curbs. Go ahead and daydream. But do NOT buy a stroller for the dog.
    2. Clean out your wardrobe to make room for the maternity stuff you’ll be buying soon. Try on anything you haven’t worn for six months. Yes, if you wish, you may put a pillow in your undies to see what will work as maternity wear. But taking a picture of yourself like that is going too far.
    3. Start a journal. Write down everything you’re feeling. It will be a great opening chapter for your child’s baby book. If you can’t put your feelings into words, draw something; try to create a symbol that expresses the frustration you’re feeling. Don’t get that symbol tattooed on your ankle.
    4. Plant a hope garden. Or a hope rosebush. Or a hope citrus tree. You want to grow something inside of you, well start by growing something outside of you. Nurture it. Feed it. Give it water. Talk to it. But do not send out birth announcements.
    5. Get better at photography. Really learn how to work all the buttons and settings on your camera. Experiment! If you have a digital camera, get all the downloading and editing stuff worked out. You will be well prepared once you have a baby, and will be able to get some great shots and get them emailed to your family before the child’s graduation. Do not take photos of your cervical mucous, even if Toni Weschler begs you.
    6. Make an appeal to the committee meeting going on inside you. Sperm, egg, uterus, corpus luteum, progesterone – they are in there either making a baby or not. Treat them like any other unruly committee you’ve ever addressed. Yes that’s right, go ahead and talk to them. Put your hands on your stomach and tell them how much you respect them. Make your best argument in favor of a baby, and then let them decide. It’s out of your hands. Addressing the committee within earshot of normal people is not recommended.
    7. Paint your toenails. Imagine how difficult this will be when you are pregnant. Go shopping for the perfect pink and blue nail polish in preparation for a celebration polish. Alternating colors on the day you find out you’re pregnant, or a single color for the day you find out the baby’s sex. Don’t be tempted to paint a cycle day countdown on your big toes.
    8. Make a cup of herbal tea. It is a nice ritual: boiling the water, adding the tea leaves, pouring into a nice china cup, adding some milk or sugar, sipping peacefully. Ahhhh. There’s nothing that a nice cup of tea won’t help. Yeah right. Well it does kill a little bit of time.
    9. Swim laps. Think about the sperm and how they need to swim to your egg. Imagine that you are a sperm, the end of the pool is the egg, then GO, GO, GO! Don’t wear a tail or anything. Just imagine it quietly.
    10. Make lists. List all the people you will tell when you get pregnant, and in what order. List all the little jobs you need to get done instead of obsessing about this 2WW! List all the healthy activities you intend to do this week. List all the girl and boy names you like. Lists are helpful for all sorts of things, most of all for passing time rather than actually doing something.
    11. Create a fertility dance. Choose whatever music speaks to your soul and make up a dance routine as a prayer to the universe for the growth of an embryo. Move your hips, rotate your belly, let your arms flow – but close the curtains.
    12. Prepare a folic acid feast. Cream of broccoli soup as an entree, followed by spinach lasagne, enriched whole grain garlic bread and frozen orange juice sorbet for dessert. Dedicate the meal to your baby-to-be. Just don’t set a highchair at the table in his or her honor.
    13. Delegate the burden of the two-week wait. Clearly someone has to worry constantly during this time, but does it have to be you? Divide the days up among your best friends and closest family. On their assigned day they are required to think, wonder, and worry all day about whether you are pregnant or not. At the end of the day they have to call or send you email describing how agonizing it was. Also they have to report to you if they had any “symptoms,” such as sore breasts, excessive urination, nausea, bleeding, fatigue… you will be surprised how many people, male and female, have early pregnancy symptoms if they just look for them.
    14. Write a list of 14 things to do during the Two-Week Wait and post it to the internet. For me, this killed nearly 3 hours. Now what? I’ve still got 9 days to go? Aaaarrgrhhhh.

    I'd add myself to the role call but.....I don't even know where I would put myself! My temps seem to indicate that I ovulated around 21 March, but last time I ovulated (and it was the first time I ever really have that has been confirmed)my boobs were pretty sore and this time they feel just normal. I guess I won't know if I did for sure until I am due for a period in a few days! I am second guessing myself on the temps, maybe I have too many blankets on (I have put on extra however the temps started to rise days before I did), maybe I am slightly sick (I don't feel it though) and have a slight temperature? I just think it isn't matching up with my last experience so I am having doubts and.......GRRRRRR! That is all!

    Has anyone else's ovulation experience varied between cycles?

    Hi Ladies

    Zoem - Hopefully the TWW is not going to slow for you. Just try and keep yourself busy. I'll be keeping my that this is it for you. Love the 14 tips by the way

    Lakshmi - I would suggest calling your DR those side effects do not sound normal especially the eye, foot and hair. Or it could be totally unrelated and maybe your coming down with something???

    Lissa - Glad to hear your levels are rising so well!! Make sure you keep us updated on your journey.

    Ellymoe - It's such a confusing time isn't it? I was convinced I had ovulated when I was on the clomid but nope not once so I really can't help. I'll keep my for you though!!

    AFM: Well AF arrived yesterday So I went and had a whole bunch of blood tests this morning and then we went to visit the FS clinic tonight. They showed us how to do the injections and we get to start on Sunday night I'm so excited to get this process started and I'm feeling very positive at the moment. So far the two nurses that I have dealt with at the clinic have been sooo nice so that definitely makes the experience better.

    Hope everyone else is going well

    Hi all

    Well, my temps have started to fall so looks to me like AF should be here soon, not looking forward to that but if it comes, at least it would indicate that I did indeed ovulate when I thought. We shall see! Hope everyone else is going well

    Default wow

    Hi Ladies,

    How is everyone?? I'm so sorry this is going to be a 'me me' post but i'm squeezing this in at work!!

    Ok, deep breath, so, after taking my first cycle of clomid last weeks BT came back negative. Disappointing but i figured onwards and upwards! Then, yesterday i had another BT as AF still hadnt arrived.

    I just got a call from the Fertility Nurse saying that my blood test yesterday has come back with a HCG level of 30!!!

    I just dont know what to do or say. While she said the level could still be low because we've caught it early, she did say that although they wont confirm it as a BFP until my bloods on friday, that definately some form of fertilisation had taken place as there is no other way that HCG would show up (unless you'd been taking pregnyl, which i have never done).

    I was wondering, what do you guys think this means? Has anyone else ever had a HCG level of 30 when they found out and it turned into a BFP??

    Cant wait to hear your thoughts!

    xo
