@MrsChino Oh yes, so sorry I do remember you writing that. Must be tough but you are seeing it in the right light. Allowing the 3 months for the drugs to rid your system is also a great way to let your body heal and hope for July to be your month..
Great work on getting through your fear of blood tests @BeautyOfTheSoul.
Each time you need one, it'll get easier and easier.
Seems like most of us all have a good weight loss goal to get through whilst we wait out when we can TTC. Maybe we could all set a goal and keep each other motivated so we get moving on our exercise and weight loss?
I'm starting crossfit tonight, I'm a little uneasy about doing it. Usually I'm fit but since my surgery 8 weeks ago, I had to stop bootcamp, PT and weights so I've only been doing little things here and there and really haven't got all my motivation back. Wish me luck eeekkk.

Good luck @BabyG4. I'm sure you'll be able to keep up with it. Can you do bootcamp or anything again? I can't remember when you said you were going to call but have you asked if you can try sooner?
Yeah I'm just hoping I can keep up with the calmness in the blood tests and I think I will be able to Luckily they used the kids needle on me haha I think that helped a lot.
I can do all my exercise again, have a full clearance including I can start TTCing eeekkk. I didn't go to crossfit in the end. Have gone down and joined the gym instead. Was a huge difference in price- $50 a week for crossfit which I would have to ease up on once I'm pregnant or $30 a fortnight for gym with as many classes as I want which I could continue doing throughout.

That's an awesome saving and you will definitely get much better usage from the gym, I think.
It is amazing having Tortoise there with me. She is pretty amazing and such a huge support. She knew about my needle phobia right from the start and was the one who took me for my first blood test (where I unfortunately traumatised her I think). She's never made fun of me as other people in the past have. I couldn't ask for someone better. I'm pretty lucky
That is exactly what you need! Obviously very difficult for you to overcome the phobia and hard for Tortoise to watch but you both got through it. What have you been doing to help you? I know when it comes to another c/section DH and I will both be a nervous wreck once it comes time for the spinal. They completely stuffed up when I was having DD4. I'm 100% ok with the surgery, not ok with having the spinal first.
That's what I'm worried about - a spinal! But I know it will be okay as I would rather a safe bub than me being stupid over a needle. I actually just disconnected for the last blood test. I wasn't really thinking about anything. When the pain in my elbow seemed a bit much I just quietly told DP that it was hurting and then it was all over. I just found it best to sit there and answers questions with one word answers. I closed my eyes at one point but the pathologist made me open them - I guess they were worried I'd passed out haha
I'm still here reading but baby plans may have changed.
I think I want to get married first so just seeing what to do!
I'll keep reading & cheering you on.
I have my fingers, toes & eyes crossed for you chunkydunks!
