    You're rockin' it!!
    @JulieMalooley What was the special potion you took to boost yours? I'm really worried about my lining based on how little blood I lost during my 3 day AF.

    13mm is great Luv!! Anywhere from 8mm-13mm is ideal, but as long as it's >6mm then most FS are happy

    Yes..ask about the Trilaminar lining too You've got a "hamburger with the lot" by the sounds of it!!!

    I'm thinking of doing my art subject assignment on ivf - as an animation. over the weekend I was thinking of a series of sensitive drawings (though my drawing's not the best) but now I've just thought of doing it on a rollercoaster which goes up, down, slows down as you watch the embryos grow in the lab (hoping to draw some of those amazing videos if I can find them again), flips your world around, goes off track during the 2ww, leads you out different doors 'congrats, you're pregnant', 'start over', 'taking a break/finished'. so a more light hearted touch. do you think that a more lighthearted approach would be offensive/too trivial for it? probably only my tutor will see it. some days I need the lighthearted approach, and other days I need the full on emotion of it all. I still want to try show the emotion as well, but I guess I don't want it to be 100% sad all the time or I might just wallow in that. I need to do the assignment, but I'm hoping doing it on this topic will help me process everything, and remember it in future when I'm completely finished & looking back.

    I decided to 'follow up' with the Police but my call went straight to the answering system, so I thought 'b@gger that' and went down to the station instead. They had had a change of shift since I last rang so I had to go back over it all again, but anyway, the officer went out the back to 'see if she could find someone who had been on earlier' and I heard him say to her something in whispered tones, and then "Tell her we got onto her and she's out of town, but will be back home tomorrow..."

    So of course, the Police Officer came out and told me what I'd already heard. She also gave me the name of the officer who had apparently spoken to my neighbour. This leads me to believe that my neighbour may indeed be in hospital (her prior rental agent who is also my current rental agent told me that she has had some 'issues' in the past) so perhaps she is not well. Either way, if she's coming home tomorrow hopefully everything will be ok.

    I'm really hoping there is food and water out for the kitten - she doesn't seem the sort of person to neglect her animals. And perhaps there is some for the dog too, and I just can't see it. It's a big yard, and as much as he is happy to see me coming with food, I don't want to jump the fence and risk him turning on me. Not that I am really in a fence-jumping, house breaking type of mood right now. I've done my best, and certainly if she doesn't come home tomorrow I'll make another (more urgent) call.

    On a slightly left of field topic...does any-one know much about the hereditary link of obesity. SD2's father & 2 sisters are both obese according to online BMI calculators. SD2 and his mother are healthy weights. I'm wondering what the risk factor of obesity would be for a potential donor conceived child?
    Ok...Have found this research summary related to the genetic risk factors for obesity. Apparently, obesity risk is 2 to 8 times higher for someone with a family history as opposed to someone with no family history.

    As someone who does have the obesity gene (running on my maternal side), I know how hard it's been battling my weight all of my life. The same thing for both of my sisters too. I have to work really hard to stay a healthy BMI to the point I need specialist medical help..doctors/dieticians etc.

    I put on weight very easily so have to make sure I eat well for 80-90% of the time with a few treats here and there or else I'll stack it on quickly. I worry for my DD that she'll inherit a predisposition to it so am her Dad's side comes through where there's no history in his immediate family.

    Here's the link Luv: http://obesity.ulaval.ca/obesity/gen...es/genetic.php

    Not long to go now before you're boarding "BFP Airlines"!!!!

    Well done @Blossom74. I'm sure it was the last thing you felt like doing. Just curiously, are you in Nth Vic by any chance? Fingers crossed the situation resolves itself tomorrow & all 3 of them are aok. Big hugs to you.

    @winsor i quite like the roller coaster due to the emotions that spring to mind when you are actually on a roller coaster. Fear anxiety hopefull to start. Then lulled into false sense of security however then it picks up speed and your barely holding on. It gets to the end and well depends did you love it? Do you feel resilient for surviving? are you proud or do you just want to vomit and cry and never go back. I guess you can make it light and dark happy and sad fear and anger and everything else in between. Just my opinion. Im not creative at all and i cant draw even stick figures really

    That's a great idea Luv!!! I don't find it offensive as that's the nature of the rollercoaster that is IVF. It's turbulent at times plus sometimes the only way to keep your sanity intact is to keep a sense of humour or attempt to remain light hearted where/when you can or else you'll end up a bloody train wreck permanently!!!
