    Hi to everyone Happy Valentines Day!

    DH is out for the day with DSS so I'm just catching up on stuff around the house. I did get a "Happy Valentines Day" with morning s.e.x. but that's about it in our house. I did think about getting DH some flowers when I bought the morning paper, but then went... Nah.... My DH is spoilt with s.e.x. anyway, we're an every day or every second day couple except for during AF when he gets looked after in a different way that I'm not going to mention here or when we're fighting which has been more than usual this year (but all good now).

    I have in my own mind two types of s.e.x. - s.e.x. for him and s.e.x. for me. The one for him is short, sweet, loving and frequent; for me it is long, slow and happens only every few weeks which I am fine with. As the others have said, I couldn't be fagged with a long session regularly (who has the energy for that?) so thank goodness DH is satisfied with quantity over quality, LOLOLOLOL

    @Gagingi I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get the numbers you hoped for but I have everything crossed that these ones make it over the line and end up being take home bubbas.

    @Caesardust I'm so sorry for what you're going through. I hope the FS comes up with a good plan of action for you as you've been through so much without any real answers...

    @Precious40 how are you travelling love? Hope you're recovering OK and looking forward to planning your next frostie transfer

    @Charlie74 I hope all is going well with you and that your stress levels have settled down and that you're OK. You've done everything possible going into this transfer, so be at peace with that and I'm hoping it all goes to plan from here and you have a lovely BFP coming up soon.

    @BlondeinBrisvegas NOOOOOO! Not more sickness - you poor thing - what a drama! So sorry that you're going through this with DD and not being well yourself makes it all the more difficult. I hope it's settled now and the pred helps. Such a worry

    Things are continuing to improve with DH, and I am busting, did I say BUSTING to fall pregnant. I think knowing that we've been through a lot the last few months and that we can come good after that and rebuild a strong relationship has my hormones going off the chart! I am going to see my FS next week and see if I can get started on a cycle of my own. But DE in SA is looking very appealing and to think that it could be eight to ten weeks from enquiry to pregnancy is so exciting. The only issue I have is that we wanted a known donor. I know the donors can tick a box saying that if the laws change they will or won't be happy to receive contact - I thought if I find someone who says they are happy to, maybe before booking her I can write a letter explaining the reasons why we wanted a known donor and to see if they were happy to give enough details to allow the child to find her when they turn 18. Although I think that is against the rules, so I'd have to find out... Hmmmm.

    Oh, and DH and I haven't had THAT talk yet, other than a "when I sell the company we'll do DE" except that I know he's got the $$ in his everyday account so could pay for it tomorrow if he wanted to... My health is really good and he can see the difference, so I don't think he could come up with any other arguments now other than the fact that he doesn't want to go through another miscarriage. But if I explain that I've never had a pregnancy where I do pred, aspirin, clexane etc then I think he'll be fine to go ahead with those things in place.

    And I just did the "transfer my credit card balance" to one of those 0% for 24 months, so that means even if I pay the minimum amount the balance will be gone before the two years is up. So even though you're supposed to chop up the old card, I haven't, so if I really, really wanted to go halves with DH in a DE cycle I could! I'm really good at paying things off and I have some very profitable events coming up mid-year (so please don't think I'm just being completely irresponsible with credit cards!) so could clear any debt by August, but that means we could start DE now... Thinking, thinking, planning, planning...

    Just out of interest which credit card is doing 24 mths 0% interest?
    Thanks @Charlie74 I feel quite good and SO ready to move forward. I just emailed two donor agencies to ask about the possibility of writing a letter to the donor first to see if they are agreeable to having some details available for when the child turns 18. I think legally they are protected to be anonymous, but I guess if they chose otherwise it would be their choice. A long shot, but worth asking the question as that was one of our main concerns with SA.

    I moved to St. George, that particular offer expired 12th January and I think it was originally for 12 or 18 months but they stuffed up my card so extended it to 24 months to say sorry!

    I used this website to compare and found the best deal. I knew that I didn't actually want to use the card at all, so the interest rate didn't really matter, it was having low fees, no fee for transferring the balance, and the longest period of 0% that I was looking for. http://www.creditcardcompare.com.au/...edit-cards.php

    Good luck for Wednesday

    I've been busy in the kitchen again! I made two little lemon madeira cakes, and four dozen chocolate chip cookies which have been rolled into balls and frozen (uncooked) for future use. Look how organised I am!
    @Summer, you sounds really focussed! Good on you for taking back control hon

    And a very early good morning to you all. It is 5.21am and I am just eating my toast before heading off on another business trip, so I wanted to pop in quickly and say 'hi' and 'bye!' I'll be back late Tuesday afternoon so I look forward to catching up on all the news then.

    Glad to hear that I have inspired some creative cooking. Gosh those scones sound delish. Might have to make those next weekend!

    Until tomorrow, have a lovely day everyone.


    Blossom

    I hope it's all ok. the hpt test line is getting darker and is darker than control line now

    @winsor so glad to hear the lines are nice and dark now! That's a great sign. Can't wait to hear those numbers this afternoon.

    see you when you get back @Blossom74 all this talk of lemon cakes and scones is making me very hungry.
    @BlondeinBrisvegas hope your daughter is feeling better this week, sounds absolutely horrendous

    AFM I reach the 12 week mark this thursday but my scan is next wednesday I was flat out on the couch yesterday so I reckon the little guy is still going strong, either that or I have developed chronic fatigue. I was so knackered I couldn't drag myself to the shops to get a card for my partner which frankly I don't think he gave a sh!t about He went for a run in the blue mountains and then rocked up with flowers and pastry, bless him, I forgot to remind him this year too. Quite despairing about my fitness at this stage, I think this whole caper is designed to turn women into tubs of lard. I am so jealous of my partner running races while I'm out of breath on the couch and having 3 hour naps.

    Good luck to @Gagingi with your embryo updates and @Charlie74 with your transfer on wed and @Billie2 where are you up to? Sorry I have lost track!

    thanks ladies. @tuxcat, yes I told them and they thought it sounded good and were looking forward to the results today too. @Charlie74 no, no heat pack. he looked at the back of my hands for a while then went back to my arms/inner elbows and found another one there which eventually worked. he said there's been a few lost veins this morning, not sure why. the humidity should have helped them pop up. I should have eaten something or drunk more water beforehand I think

    fingers crossed for your scan next week Bongley. I'm sure it'll all be fine

    good luck with your report today @Gagingi too!

    who else has things this week, sorry I've forgotten too. I need a weekly update whiteboard I think.
