Hi lovelies.. Well Af, the cruel and horrible woman came on Friday a week early and giving me a 28 day cycle.. Which whilst is great is crap as well because I thought I'd only ovulated the Thursday before... Argh.. On to September testing.. I know I "should" take the advice of people and stop trying and it will happen but it consumes my every waking thought.. And making it worse is my job which I am trying to stay in until we have a baby so add that and I thunk it's why it consumes so much of my thoughts... I'm angry at my body and I am angry at myself for not being able to fall pregnant.. I just wish I could know that I can... That's what kills me too.. DH so very much wants a bub too that I feel like I'm failing him and I think it's harder cos he wants bub so much too... Sorry for the pity party.. Good luck for all those left to test and for those who got the witch hugs to you... Xo

[QUOTE=nocturne;6013134]Spanna - implantation maybe? How many DPO are you?
if it is implantation id now be about 15/16DPO every fibre of my being says test but then the rational part of me says dont be silly you just had a really little bit earlier than usual light period. since i stopped bleeding ive been having these weird twinges near my left ovary which dont usually happen.
angel im so happy your doing the surgery! there is an older lady that works for me that just had hers out about 3 weeks ago...took about 7-10 days to recover and the dr said no lifting for about 4 weeks. with my sisters she was in the hospital for about 2 weeks to recover but that was awhile ago
Jeb- ttc is all consuming. you wouldnt be feeling that way if you didnt really really want it. everyone of us on these threads....no matter if uve been trying 6 weeks or 6 years....you feel like that.
Hello to everyone else

Spanna - OMG TEST!!! The suspense is killing me! I really hope that was an implantation bleed!!!
Jeb - Sorry the witch arrived Being obsessed or consumed with TTC really isn't going to make it any happen any faster or slower, you can't help what you think about! Don't feel guilty about that.
Angel - Good girl for getting rid of that pesky gall bladder! It's great that you don't feel pain, that should make recovering a lot easier, but just remember that you HAVE to take it easy, and don't do anything physical on your week off to recover. Or you'll get a smacked bottom!
Also well done for completing 2 of your assignments!
Nocturne - LOL at the barstool! Good work! That reminds me of my studio chair, it's missing part of a wheel and I'm constantly leaning over to grab something and I find myself trying to balance like a cartoon character on a unicycle!
Elly - Congrats on your grades!!!
Pink - I feel your pain! DH shared his man flu with me too!
AFM - As mentioned above, I'm sick! I never get sick! I haven't had a cold/flu in well over 2 years *tanty* And I have to travel 600km today to see the hematologist - Gunna be such a fun car trip! I'm more nervous than I thought I would be about this appointment... but it'll be over soon, and everything will be fine... *deep breath*
But anyhoo, despite the sickness and nervousness, I'm actually in a freaking fantastic mood! For all of you who have listened to me whinge and b!tch about my spastic metabolism and weight, I am proud to report that I have FINALLY reached my first mini milestone. 5kg lost!
UP YOURS THYROID!

Jeb & Fresh-Welcome!! I'm sure you will fit right in here. We are a pretty friendly bunch! Best of luck with your TTC journies.
Nocturne-I hear you on the growing boobs! Mine have gone up 2 cup sizes. I ended up buying 2 maternity bras from Bras n Things...very comfy!! Not quite as expensive as the ones you got..think they were about $50/60 each. We bought the Strider Plus pram in the 3 wheeler. I've been obsessed with it since we started TTC... Made any purchases yet, or trying to hold out a little longer?
That's great that your DH is helping with all the housework!!!
Chic-So glad you didn't end up with OHSS!! I am anxiously waiting for your TWW to be over. Keeping my and sending and across the ocean to you!
Magic- on the weight loss!!! 5kg is great progress!!!! Sorry to hear that you are sick at the moment. Lots of nasty things going around. Not fun! I hope the appointment today goes well and you survive the looooong trip!
The concoction mum made was kinda working (helped with the cough) but I think my immune system was just too worn down to bounce back like I would normally do. Antibiotics seem to have cleared me up.
Pink-Sorry to hear your DH shared his man flu with you! I hope you are on the mend soon. Vitamin C, fresh OJ and panadol were my best friends while I was sick..oh and lemonade icy poles!
Elly- on passing your driving test!! Well done!!! Did you get your assignment finished too?
Spanna- that it was implantation bleeding!!! Hopefully when you do decide to test you will be sharing the news of a BFP with us all!!
Angel-Glad to hear you are going ahead with the surgery and that the surgeon has put your mind at ease about it all. 2 ladies at work have just had the same surgery. They were only in hospital overnight and then home on bedrest for a week. Both have seemed to recover quite quickly! I hope the same goes for you.
Well done on completing your assignments!! I wish I had of been that organised when I was at uni!!!
Yup, I am pretty pleased with our bargain finds so far!!
Jeb-So sorry AF arrived. TTC can become quite life consuming...I know it did for me. It was so hard to think of anything but TTC and babies.
to anyone I may have missed (hopefully I haven't though!!).
AFM-finally feel like I have recovered from my cold/flu. The ABs must have been what my body needed to get well. Not much happening here.
Have had DH doing some DIY on the bubba's room. He has knocked down a wall, patched the holes and next time he is home will paint! Then we'll just need new carpet and it will be ready to fill with all our baby purchases!!
Felt bubba doing flips the other night...most bizarre feeling but so, so amazing!
15-08-2011 13:21 #195
YAY MAGIC!!! Congrats on the 5kg loss!
Summa, yay for getting bubby's room done. must feel good.
AFM, 14dpo. boobs are so sore, but I think af is coming.
15-08-2011 15:36 #196
Whoops, haha, posting on my dumb phone meant that it was too much effort to specify that it was my driving test that I passed!
I did get the essay in...eventually - 2 days late ! I don't care how I go with that, it's only for sociology. But yes, I'm now a tooting around town (without DH in the passenger seat I'm now a bit of a hooner, hehe!)
Magic - Thinking of you today at the haematologist appointment! Hope the 600km drive isn't too gnarly for you, you poor sick thing!
Angel - Your surgeon sounds great! So good that you don't have to wait too long for the surgery, you'll be back TTC in no time! And way to go with the assignments! No more uni work til October?! You lucky thing!
Summa - Ooh, movement! Must be surreal. Progress on the baby room sounds like fun!
Jeb - Stick with it! You'll get your BFP soon xx
Nocturne - Aww thanks, I was commissioned to knit them for a little local shop for Easter. I thought that photo seemed appropriate for an avatar for this site even though it's not really indicative of how many children I want or what genders! I suppose we'd probably aim for 3...? Start with one and work our way from there is my plan these days.
Your story about the barstool was quite cute!
And hi to everyone else
AFM - Humm, well driving excitement aside, I've no idea what's going on lately. I didn't get o pain (I think I said earlier) and then afterwards when I normally have big and sore b00bs, I just have the big but not the sore. Well, a little sore now and then, but not all the time like normal. On Saturday I felt a sharp stabbing pain down in my lower abdomen and then later worked out I was 8DPO so it could have been implantation...
Anyway, I've found I'm not obsessing about TTC so much this month which is nice. Maybe because I now have that ever elusive driver's licence, I can now believe that equally seemingly impossible BFP will come too!
15-08-2011 21:49 #197
Thanks for the well wishes everyone
Oh and Elly, congrats on passing your DRIVING license..., that actually makes a lot more sense now. LOL! Well DONE!
Summa - Yay for the progress on bubs room, I'm sure it will look totally amazing soon!
AFM - So the appointment today went ok-ish. No answers to anything, but I didn't expect any just yet. Some good news is that I don't need a bone marrow biopsy straight away, that can wait a bit (I'm very frightened of that one!). So I'm just having a heap of genetic BTs done to start with. If they come back negative, it will rule out a certain group of blood disorders (but not all of them), and we see where to go from there. But because I've gotten the flu now, I can't get these tests done for another week or 2, and then it's about a month for the genetic testing! More waiting, gosh how I love that!
Basically I'm not really going to know anything until I have everything tested. And it could be months, or years because even if all of them come back negative I'll have to have yearly tests to monitor my levels in case they start rapidly rising. BAhhhhhhh.
Anyhoo, I promised myself that after today, I will not see another specialist again for a while (not even if something comes back positive). I need a break from this insane worry! I'm going to focus on happy things, and let DH spoil me absolutely frikkin' rotten for my birthday tomorrow!
I do believe it is time for my foot massage! *giggles madly*
16-08-2011 00:29 #198
Happy Birthday Magic!! Hope you get spoilt and are felling better xoxo
Summa, wow feeling movements already!! its such a lovely feeling, wait until you can see it from the outside! im getting the strider 4 wheel, prob in black as they dont have that lovely kingfisher colour anymore.
Elly, when are you testing? good luck!!
SIlent, hello, i hope its not AF!! hope you are well.
Spanna, did you test? cant hurt.
Jeb, dont be too hard on yourself. i know its hard not to obsess about TTC but its true, when you relax and dont think about it may just happen. good luck!
Angel, good lcuk with the surgery!
Chic, not long until your BT! are you doing to POAS?
Hope everyone and is well
So many bugs going around but ive been so lucky! i feel really good, dont know why as ive been eating crap and working with so many sick people.

Only 5 weeks of work left! im happy about that!!
