    hi @mrsthomo and @Annerley thanks for the kind words I'm feeling a whole lot better the last couple days especially after seeing the counselor who helped me see things from a different light. We are very blessed to have gotten this far and have a beautiful little embie currently being cocooned in my fat uterus lining (hopefully an implanted and growing one)
    and @mrsthomo thanks for letting me know about the rollcall. I’ll definitely be doing a little catch up on pg12!
    @Evelynmoo does the thought of having a c-section entice you more than having to go through a natural birth with no painkillers, or is that only really the last resort because its better for you to go natural due to the spina bifida? I haven't thought that far ahead, although i am scared that if i do get pregnant that my uterus will rupture or whatever due to my adenomyosis! @stillfuntryin – holy guacamole! 8pound baby!! My hubby was an 8 pound baby. You are amazing to have gone through that on top of 9 months of physio with the constant worry for the bub!

    So this morning I did something a little naughty – I POAS! I’ve been having major cramps the last few days and feeling like I’m getting my periods, but they’ve never been this intense this far away from my period. I’m 7 days from my BT and, 5dp5dt and 12 days post trigger shot. I got a very faint second line. I’m not sure what to think of it. I knew it could be a false positive coz of the trigger… so in a way, I think I just wanted to see what it would be like to have a second line on that darn stick! 3 years of staring at that thing and wishing so hard for a second line!!!!

    Hi I hear you! I'm still having coffee and dairy. You just start slow and let yourself adjust. My first step was to clear the house of gluten and sugar. I went through my cupboards and looked at all the ingredients and anything with sugar was out. There's plenty of gluten free options especially at a good foodland. I swapped sugar in my coffee with honey and eventually I'll cut out honey too. Coffee is actually pretty ok. Look at the bulletproof diet. They have a coffee (real organic coffee) that you blend with butter (must be high quality butter) and mct oil. It's delicious and creamy and it works on ur body's ketosis. Good fats are ur friends. Just start with what you can. You do need to food prep a bit more. I make brownies with coconut oil, dates, raw cacao, coconut flour, walnuts etc so I've got some sweet treats. It's def ok to start with a cheat. As some point when your ready it would be good to do something like the 10 week activation program that Pete evens has as its like a reset for your body. But just as a start u can drop the gluten and sugar and you'll notice u feel lighter and more awake and better moods. 😊

    BTW Pete Evans didn't invent paleo lol. Try the paleo mum on FB. She has great recipes and and amazing story. I lost weight with coffee, dairy and cheese. Just taking the gluten and sugar was enough to loose 3 kilos and I haven't done a single walk.

    @Mink I am more terrified of having a c-section as they will have to put me completely under general anaesthesia if I have to have one and that scares me the most because I have a heart condition and have had problems while being under before, plus I don't want to miss out on such an important event. But yes its better for me to do it naturally and my spina bifida specialist has said that so far I'm capable of it.
    I'm a constant over thinker and over analyse things, I'm always worrying about the future and planning things, I don't do "just go with the flow" attitude very well, I guess that's why I'm a bit frustrated with my current clinic.

    Called another FS clinic and booked an appt for 30th Nov for a second opinion. But they want me to get my current clinic to fill in paperwork about me and everything theyve done so far. I don't want them to know that I'm considering changing because I'm worried they will treat me differently and not put in as much effort.

    oh @Evelynmoo what a predicament! Im halfway thinking I might change FS and even clinics... but having said that, I'm at Genea and they work on your schedule. Whenever you're ready, they're ready. But if you're looking for someone who will listen to your needs and do what you feel comfortable with, then shopping around is your best bet I think. I started off with a FS who was too conservative and now my current one is a little too pushy and hasn't really been listening to me. So I may be looking for #3 now.
    I think you should feel confident that if your SB specialist thinks you're capable of a natural birth, then you can do it! Does the SB specialist know of any FS/clinics that can help/understand your situation better? I totally understand the overthinking and constant worry - i'm trying to overcome this myself! something the counselor suggested I try was to visualise those worrying thoughts into something more tangible, like a box, and give it a terrible name, then everytime it pops up, you could say something like "Look, Kim Kardashian West, I can't deal with you and all your pseudo drama right now!" and store it away! Give yourself permission not to think about it. Sounds a bit wishy washy, but I like the idea of making those thoughts into something a bit more tangible. When I want to block crappy things from my mind I like to chant "brick wall! brick wall!" over and over hahaha

    Thanks I agree sugar and gluten make me feel yuck! It's having a partner who eats white bread, chocolate, litre of milk a day and exercises and is lean! He is lucky with his metabolism me not so much!
    We can travel once the first 6 weeks are done which is right on Xmas so going away after will be fine... Plus it's only a 2 and half hour flight to Adelaide might not happen yet as still trying to find a nice beachside holiday house down south as would rather go down there but left the run a little late
