Thanks tigger- I have been downing them like there is no tomorrow!!
Thanks tigger- I have been downing them like there is no tomorrow!!
Jacks81 - Thanks - I agree - there has been a few AF lately. We must be due some more BFP before christmas. I hoping that the people in the TWW has more luck than I had.
Cherished - Thanks to you also. that you were able to catch that egg.
Ja78 - Thanks for asking how I am doing. Feeling a bit down yesterday - was at a maternity hospital yesterday and seeing people going to their appts. Just wishing that I could be going too. I know I haven't been trying for very long when you compare to other ladies - but I just wish it would hurry up - 5 month and I am starting to get impatient. So there is my whinge for the day over - How did you scan go?
Tiggerfildes and Mummylip how are you going? Have I remembered correctly - and you are both in the TWW now?
Angelbubswithwings - Thanks. It wasn't meant to be our month - how are you feeling? How are you xmas and holiday plans going?
Lamabana - Hi . Sometimes I have a quick peek at work too when I am bored.
AFM - As I was saying I was a bit bummed that AF arrived. But I am trying to concentrate on the fact that if it wasn't meant to be atleast it wasn't a drawn out pregnancy. I had a chemical pregnancy that ended at 6 weeks. I am trying to debate whether to try next cycle or have a month off and enjoy xmas. Babydust to all in the TWW. I have a feeling there is going to be some BFP just around the corner.
Cheekymonkey sorry Af arrived. It is a hard choice to try over Xmas. Maybe give it a relaxed go and see what happens or don;t and enjoy champers on Xmas day. I had one glass of wine last night and felt a bit guilty being in the TWW and all but I can't keep holding out because i may not get a bfp for ages. I guess everything in moderation.
Rach how are you feeling? Has the UTI eased? I swear by cranberry juice and tablets.
Lamabana are you in the tWW?
Angelbubs where are you going on hols to? How's DS going?
Jacstar sending you I hope this month is lucky for you!
Ja thanks for your support and I hope jelly bean is being kind to you.
everybody else that's all the personals I can see on this screen.
AFM: 6dpo and have some mild cramping but not sure if it's just wind. Really no symptoms at all. TWW is driving me a little batty and looking forward to testing on Tuesday but keeping super busy. Working tomorrow so should keep my mind off things. Been a while since we've had a bfp in here. Cmon give us babies!
Hi Mummy, I hope that the tww flies by for you. The two times I actually got pregnant in the last couple of years I actually didn't get any symptoms until 5 weeks - so I'll have my fingers crossed.
DS is great thanks for asking. He went on an hour long bike ride today with his friend and has basketball tonight. He is pretty easy going.
DH is home at the moment but has been away during the week - kinda like the best of both worlds :0). He is outside trying out his new lawn mower!
Well the day after AF arrived I also got struck down with a really annoying head cold so I stayed home Friday and spent the day just reading and watching movies and still feel pretty yuck. I had a really emotional trip to the accupuncturist this morning - she said that my pulse is racing and that my body is radiating so much heat because of all the emotion I am carrying. She did this back massage heat cup thing and it brought on the tears which was a bit over whelming. I've been trying to push it all aside but I think that the effort of pushing it aside is just as exhausting as facing up to the disapointment. There have been so many facebook messages and pregnancy announcements that sometimes it just feels like I am the only one in the world who can't have that much wanted baby - I know I have you girls and that is comforting. Anyway I think I am partly messed up a bit because i watched a movie last night called Country something with Gwenyth Paltrow in it and it was a good movie but also left me very emotional. In the movie she was an alcholic and actually lost a baby at 5 months because she fell. Anyway it was kind of her journey to self recovery and I could kind of relate to the helplessness of it all and towards the end was starting to cheer for her because it seemed like she was over coming her problems. Well she actually over dosed on pills and died!! I know it's only a movie but a few things kind of hit home. Some of it is related to my past and i don't really talk about it much but I had a very troubled teenage hood and actually got myself into a bit of trouble with drug taking and although that is a life that I left behind a long time ago there is something about it that still upsets me. My parents had just divorced and I was very low and the drugs were really helping me not deal with the reality of the world around me. For the last 12 months I haven't even drunk alchohol (well occasionally on a special occasion) and partly it is because sometimes I don't trust myself becuase when i drink my worries just fall away and I don't want to live life like that.
Anyway sorry if I am rambling and I hope that you don't judge me because of the above. I was very fortunate because I had the strength to turn my life around but just sometimes it kinda all comes back and I get a bit worried.
I am actually relieved over the 3 month break I am having - I really don't want to be that person who is sad all the time and emotionally unstable. I want to remember how to enjoy life and have fun and create happy memories with the son that I have and with my husband who does nothing but stand by me and try and make my life easier.
I hope everyone else is well xx
Oh Angelbubs ... no judgement in here at all hun, you are an incredibly brave and strong woman, not only to endure all you have but to have the guts to be open and honest about it. I commend you.
I'm so glad you have decided to relax and just let yourself enjoy the next 3 months... i really hope you have a fabulous summer and are able to show off that beautiful bikini bod you've worked so hard for this year!
Angelbubs - I admire your strength and honesty. Enjoy your break and I hope you find yourself again. We are all here for you!
Trying to decide whether to start the progesterone support or not?? I really don't know if I have O'd? Still no temp rise
Angelbubs massive I agree with Cherished, you are very honest, and deserve to have the stars align for you
Gracie's Mummy- hows bumpkin going?
Cherished- I dont really understand all the stuff about temping etc, so not much help, I am sure your BFP is just around the corner
Mummy Lip- not quite in TWW, I think I O today, have been feeling dreadful the last couple days, really blegh! hopefully it doesn't affect our eggy. We always seem to be waiting, dont we, waiting for AF to not come, waiting to O, waiting to test, its enough to drive you bonkers
Rach- good luck with the uti, they are buggers
Cheeky- how are you? its a hard decision over xmas, we are just playing it all casual and what happens will happen.
Tigger- how are you going, think I read back a bit you were working away?
It is so hard to keep up. sorry if I missed any one. During the week I am a bit limited to my phone and come the weekend the thread has moved so fast!! Caught up with a close girlfriend, who has been ttc for the last 2 years with no luck! yet she is still so positive and up beat that it will happen! have noticed i am extra 'juicy' sorry tmi - isn't it amazing just how much we share with each other!! so for a bfp soon!
LamaBana - Thanks for asking! Bumpkin is really great! Had a scan today and am measuring exactly 10w0d (I thought i was only 9+5). Got to see little legs and feet and little arms and hands and lots of wiggling and waving to us which was super cute! The sonographer and i both thought we spotted a little extra between Bumpkin's legs... but its still way to early and is only a guess.
I posted some pics on the Graduates thread this afternoon if anyone wants to check them out.
I can't wait for everyone to join us with their BFP's! Hopefully very soon...
... sprinkling a little extra baby dust in here for you all...
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.
Angelbubs - I agree with everyone else for sharing your story that was so brave. There is nothing like the grief of losing babies and ttc again to bring up lots of past trauma. I know for me it has made me evaluate who I am and what I want out of life. You have overcome so much to get to where you are and I know that it is that strength that will help you survive the journey until you are holding that beautiful baby in your arms, whenever that may be. I am glad you are looking forward to your break and think it is very wise, it is the best time of year for relaxing, eating good food and spending time with friends and family. Hopefully in early 2012 you will be feeling ready to try again. We will all be here for you. Please dont be a stranger between now and then though
Cherished - that is so frustrating not having a temp rise. Is this your first month temping? How long are your cycles nomally? Hoping all is revealed soon
Ja - Yay for your scan this week. I can only imagine the anxiety and hope you get through the next few days ok. Once you see that little heartbeat I hope you feel a bit more peace
Rach - sounds like you O'd and were BDing at the right time so for you and hope that annoying UTI clears up. Second the ural and cranberry juice.
Jacks - I understand about the CM suffering, have you tried pre-seed or one of the other lubricants that replicates CM? You can order them online. Might be worth asking your naturopath too caus I think there are some herbs you can take to increase CM
Cheekymonkey - Sorry stupid AF showed up and sorry I havent been on to say that before now. Hope you have some nice plans to keep your mood lifted and heart hopeful
Lamabana - I think I saw you O'd so yay for the TWW and hope it flies for you with a happy result at the end
Mummylip - lots of sticky for you. When are you going to test?
Graciesmummy - woohoo for 10 weeks that seems to have gone so fast. I'm so happy you had a lovely scan to check out your beautiful bub that must have made you feel good. Thanks for always checking in on us you are a darling.
Who else is testing this week?
AFM - I am going to try and hold out until Wednesday when AF is due. Dont think my heart can bear daily disappointment if it is a BFN. This is our last chance to be UTD before our DD's due date on the 23rd. Would love to know her little brother or sister is on the way when we celebrate her short but important little life. My body has been so out of whack it seems unlikely. A few days ago I was just happy to celebrate confirmation of O but its amazing how those hopes for a bfp take over .
We need some BFP's girls, hoping this is going to be a good week for a few of us
Hi girls, thanks everyone for your support xxxooo
