oh @Billie2, I can understand the tinman (protection of) feelings. really hoping everything's still ok for you. it sounds like you've jumped on that zipper ride at the ekka & are being thrown up & down at high speed/frequency instead of jumping on the slow-mo gentle roller coaster.
@MissDa my FS wants to see me Thurs after my scan but they are booked out till Monday! So Ive asked they intervene and get me in Thurs but how can I take another womans appt? I must of been a Carni in a previous life and now Im back in the circus!
Billie2. It's so frucked up there is no doubt about it. I really feel you ATM. I actually took an extra few valium when I was going through it and it helped me a little bit at the time
@Maxwellsmum thats exactly how I feel. I coped better with my previous negatives. Not that a negative is easier to deal with. They are very different. Im ok though. Im not a mess and still operating. Im still going to work and being an annoying mother to DS8. If I stay home I'll cry and waste energy on something I cant control. Sometimes I wonder why I am doing it. Then every belly or pram I pass (on average 6837 a day), reminds me.
I bought a lotto ticket, I'll win that before I end up in a labour ward!
Ps, your not the tinman, your human, I completely shut off during my last DE cycle, didn't even cry. From memory there a few ladies on here who had had similar experiences. Some kind of detachment from it all almost, self preservation maybe?
