Good morning ladies,
Sorry for my absence yesterday, we had my parents come to stay so I was kept busy entertaining them for the evening.
I, too, am on Prednisolone at the moment, and I reckon to say I have put on 5kgs in the last 7 months would not be over-stating my situation. And the joy of it is that it all went to my belly - like I needed more there! I also agree with the whole celebrity baby body thing. It drives me crackers when I see these waifs who look like they have a grapefruit under their dresses banging on about their new-found curves. Rebecca Judd is one such lady - lovely I'm sure, but she does those travel shows and sits in the featured restaurants waffling on about how good the food is, but she never bl@@dy takes a bite of it! Grrr.....for the love of God woman, eat a pie!
@leyshoja, I am so sorry you are having all of this extra worry about the fluid around your cervix. Hopefully, as @Infinity says, they can just suck it all out and move on with your transfer. It must be such a bloody stress, especially in light of the fact that you have had to shell out for flights and accommodation and all the other extra costs on top. Sending you hugs and hoping it all works out well for you in the end
@BIB, How did the rose shopping go? Can't say I've ever been to Toowoomba. Is it a big place? Did you get to see any sights or have a nice meal out while you were there?
@Bongley. I am eagerly standing by for an update for those tests I know you're doing love! How's it going? Any sign of a squinter line yet? Don't stress if there is nothing there yet though - it's still very early on. I had a grey ghost line, incredibly faint that only I could see, at 6dp5dt but it wasn't visible to hubby (and even then it was faint) until 7dp5dt. Ooooh, I have everything crossed for you!
@Caesardust, a big welcome to you! Lovely to have you on board, and I'm sure you will find everyone here just lovely, and so helpful too.
@Charlie74, I agree 100% with you. For the money we pay, we should be able to access 24/7 support from our clinics. I always think that your worries always seem worse at night, and that's the time I really needed to talk to someone the most. Fat lot of good my clinic is when they only work Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. A little more attention to their client's emotional needs would not go astray.
@Infinity, do you start your tablets today, or very soon from memory anyway. How exciting, things will be happening for you soon.
Me, all good in the 'hood. Just trying to relax and take one day at a time. It was nice having Mum and dad come to stay. As I've said before, we are quite isolated out here and it was nice to have someone to chat to. Hubby, whilst being a lovely man, is none-the-less a man of few words. I finally felt like I had some company! Plus, they shouted us dinner, and I had the BEST chicken schnitzel with chips and gravy.
Have a great day all,
