    Going to your GP and getting tests done doesn't seem like a bad idea. I personally think getting confirmed answers is a good thing. Cross the surgery hurdle when you get the results.

    I think it's really come to light after hearing of the 2 friends pregnancies over the weekend. I know it's not a race or anything, but every new pregnancy I hear of just deflates me just that little bit more. Especially when I know some people have been trying for such a short space of time before being successful. I've wanted babies of my own all my life. I know it sounds corny, but I feel like I was born to be a mum. I have got a really special relationship with my 6yo cousin - she was the flower girl at my wedding, we write letters to each other (they live interstate) and whenever I visit them or they visit us, she's like my little shadow. We were up at mooloolaba once and she was on the beach with my mum and her older brothers and she spotted DH and I walking down the beach towards them from about 100m away. As soon as she spotted me she dropped her bucket and spade and started running up the beach towards me with her arms outstretched. She would've been maybe 3 at the time. I just want that for myself all the time. I hate how all my family is interstate... I'm ready to have my own. DH keeps talking about a move to Melbourne, and I'm actually starting I consider it more. While I don't really know many people down there, I would be so much closer to family (Adelaide and Hobart mostly) so it would be loads cheaper to visit. I think I just need some good news!

    I know how you feel - to be "constantly" surrounded by pregnancies and babies. It's really tough.

    Don't succumb to the "race to the birth suite" thing. It'll only get you down more. My BFF's MOH speech even had "the baby race is now on!" in it, and that was mostly the theme of the entire speech!

    For me I've already gone through the "girlfriends having babies" phase and am now going through "girlfriends having their second babies" phase. It's so hard to see everyone fall easily time after time and me still struggling to have my first.

    I told myself last year that I'm no longer allowed to let myself feel "inadequate" (I had for a while, wallowing in self-pity that I was "failing as a woman" and that I couldn't "do the one thing that was meant to come naturally" and give my DH a child). It was a terrible phase and I still have those thoughts on occasion, but look around me and also see those couples that never had children (most of them not by choice, but lack of options) and instead feel thankful that there are soooo many options out there for me to choose from and pursue my dream of carrying a child to term. (My own DH is adopted as his adoptive mother was unable to conceive, but didn't have the option of IVF back in the day)

    I too have always felt like being a Mum is something I've been "destined" for. I love kids and generally they love me! I truly hope I can be a mother one day. Either of my own genetic offspring or those I adopt.

    Your time will come. And it will be even more special because of your journey to getting there. x

    Hold hope! I am! I know it will eventually happen for me and DH. Maybe not straight away, but it will. xxxx *hugs*

    @Shrillian I was just reading your journey above. Lots of hugs and positive thoughts your way x It will happen for you!

    I use p-tracker. The algorithms or whatever they use seem to be good as even though I'm irregular it seems to know exactly when my period is due.
    However don't know how accurate the ovulation part is (which is the most important)

    Thank, hun. x

    I may have to check that out! Do you think you're ovulating a fortnight before your period? Have you felt what you consider are ovulation pains?

    @Shrillian I have been monitoring my mucous/discharge (goodness I hate those words haha) and it actually did seem to be a week off from what the tracker was saying. I'm just feeling so overwhelmed and a little scared that I may not be ovulating. I think not being regular is stressing me a bit.
    I'm like "is that an eggy consistency"? I literally went and cracked an egg and compared hahaha The things we do right!

    Hey ladies.

    Oh theoneandonlyem. your time will come. Remain positive. I can't say I know how you feel because I don't, I'm one of the ones that falls pregnant very easily. But I had a m/c in Nov and around the exact same time and for a few weeks after people where announcing their pregnancies. It was bittersweet because although I was happy for them it was hard for me.
    So all I can say is hang in there.

    Thanks Lexim. Sometimes I just have down days and go all a bit "why me". Or rather, "why not me". I am really happy for those around me that are having babies, and I can't wait to go shopping for them because I love baby shopping. Actually my DH is probably dreading when we are pregnant for the very reason haha.

    It is exciting to see all the new babies. And given that I spend my days bringing new life into the world I have a lot to be happy about. I just never thought it would be this hard to have one of my own!

    Congratulations to the bfp's!!! A happy and healthy 9 months to you both!!

    MrsT how'd ur docs appointment go? We are thinking of seeing a Chinese herbalist / accupuncturist before considering Ivf. Try and see if we can help naturally. I'm not quite sure if I will do Ivf at this stage.

    I def know how it feels when everyone aroun you seems to be getting pregnant so easily. Some days I feel fine but others I am so upset and almost resentful. It's a horrible feeling. One thing that seems to help is accepting how I feel instead of making myself feel guilty for how I'm feeling. That way I can let my anger out.

    But you know what? I believe we will all get our bfp's one day. As long as we don't give up.

    Gelati, not sure how much you've seen of what I've already posted but our doc basically told is it's ivf or nothing. We have no emotional issues with ivf it's just a matter of getting the funds now!
    FS appt is in about 3 weeks to discuss game plan.
