Go away for the weekend and everyone has moved!
Lamabana82 - I think all of us have "mini" break downs every
now and then when something reminds us of what could have been. I think if you don't let it out occasionally it would get on top you you. Hope you enjoyed your bike ride.
Tiggerfildees - Sorry to hear about AF arriving. I know that feeling of wanting it to happen on a special occasion. We were in Paris in June and I thought it would be a romantic place to conceive. Unfortunately it ended in a chemical pregnancy. I don't know if it is the same for you but I had it in my head that I would get prengant on our trip and have a wonderful story to tell and was so disappointed it didn't work out. But it will be our turn soon. Hope your vajayjay is feeling better.
Ja78 - Agree with the time machine. I hate the waiting too.
Angelbubswithwings - Glad things have worked out and your hubby was home this weekend. I hope it all aligns for you and you won't need the reproductive clinic.
Renovator Mum, Ocean 10, Stretched, MMH sorry for your losses. Glad you have found us but hope your wait here isn't too long.
Rach85 - Hope time moves quickly for you.
Delisa - Sorry to hear AF arrived. I will be thinking of you this week.
Giggle & Hoot - Good luck for your scan. It is nice that the graduates still pop in - Gives us TCC hope.
Bernie Girl - Sorry to hear AF arrived. Sorry I can't help with OPK - I haven't used them but other girls have and I am sure they can help.
MummyLip - The wait is terrible but it sounds like you are keeping your self busy.
AFM: Just got back from Melbourne after our long weekend away for DH birthday. Had a lovely time. We didn't get to the races but saw all the lovely girls and boys all dressed up all over the city for Derby Day. Lucky we were booked on Virgin and not QANTAS! I am not sure when I ovulated but think I should have by now as I am CD 17 and I usually have 28 day cycle (although the first after miscarriage was only 24 days). Now I am in the wait to see if AF arrives. Waiting, Waiting always waiting ....

Cheekymonkey good luck with the TWW hope it flies by and sending you lots of . What were you doing in Melbs fir DH's birthday?
Rach good advice about the OPk's. Also I read it is better to test between 10am-8pm
Bernie sorry AF arrived. OPK's are a great idea especially if you're unsure of when O is going to happen.
mmh so sorry for your loss. If you feel ready to try again then go for it. Nothing will replace the bubba you lost but I think getting pregnant again will give you something happy to focus on. I can't wait to be UTD again. I hope you get a sticky one soon.
Stretched that is too tempting with all those preggo tests. When do you think you'll O?
Jacks81 have you tested yet? Don't hold out on us?
How are you going LamaBana?
Tiggerflides sorry AF showed up. I hope it's your turn soon.
Angelwithbubwings haven't heard from you this weekend. Are you too busy? Hope you catch eggy!
AFM: Feel like I have been in this thread too long. No offence intended. But I have had a good wekend. Cuddled a new born on Friday, went to engagement party and ripped out the bathroom. Let the renos begin! Off to work tomorrow probs the only one in Melbourne. Hope evryone else had a good one. Got about 9 days till O.

How are you all?
Tigger- I am sad for you that you didn't get your honeymoon bub. I think there were alot of people out there who were wishing it for you. If only wishes and hopes were all it took for all the ladies here to get their bubbas. It would be a quiet thread! I hope AF is being kind to you and realises she is an unwanted visitor. Big Hugs hun I hope you are doing ok.
Berniegirl- I hope you are having a brighter day today. It is really hard not to count milestones that you should be experiencing. For me it is always an extra kick in the pants to remind me of what I haven't got. Please go easy on yourself- It is a hard road to travel and I hope you have the support you need irl to help you through.
Warm welcomes to RenovatorMum and Stretched. I am glad you found us and can find this thread a safe place to land when you are having a hard day. always around for a chat.
Hi Jacks- I have big big Fingers crossed for you on wednesday. I hope you get the result you are wishing for.
MMH and Ocean10- I was so sad for you both to read about the trauma you have both experienced with the loss of your tiny angels. I wish for you both all the strength and peace in the world to help cope with your losses and also to have hope that there is a special little soul waiting to come into your family very soon
Hi almaBana- I hear you on the meltdowns hun. I think for me it is all part of this horrible journey of grief that all the ladies here have to travel. It is good to let it all out though (even if it dosen't feel like it at the time) Please take it easy on your poor hurting heart
cheekyMonkey- hope you had a nice weekend with your lovely bike ride. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you
MummyLip- I would never take offence at your comment. If anyone knows the unfairness and groundhog day feelings of being stuck in a ttc thread it would be you. If only the wishes and hopes of all your well wishers were enough for you to get your longed for dream come true. Oh if only. I can feel your frustration and wish that there was something practical I could do to help- but realisitically all I can do is be there for you when you need a chat.
AngelBubs- Bust weekend in bd land? I hope the stars and moon aligned to give you O at a time that can make you hopeful for a bfp soon
AFM- Sorry for the marathon post! I feel like there has been lots going on in here. I have my GP appt tomorrow and should be 5 weeks by my calculations from O. It just makes it a bit more real. I am sorry to be talking baby stuff when you girls are still trying to protect your tender heart but I just can't bring myself to join the graduates thread yet. Tomorrow is also a big day for me as it is our DS due date. I should be happy because I set myself the wish of being utd by his due date but now I am here I feel like I am marginalising his memory by being quietly happy at being utd again. I am having a couple of days off work and am going to realx at home and spend time making baby blankets and beanies to donate to a charity that I have joined called Little Angel Memory Boxes- look them up on facebook. such a beautiful group doing such precious work.

No testing as yet just holding out until wed as have had hardly anything in the way of symptoms, I am to wondering how long until that bfp will happen again as my mc was
in June. Seeing the doc on Wednesday for all my results so will do a test with fmu 12 dpo.
We have just finished renovating both our bathrooms and I'm so glad it's over!
Ja- good luck with your doc appt send some baby dust over this way please !
Have a friends BBQ on cup day we are all ttc ATM so it's good to have a chat about it all.

Morning girls. Hope everyone's doing ok and had a nice weekend
Jacks81 - hope you had a nice visit with your friends bubs. It certainly gives us hope.
Streched - I'm using Internet cheapie opk's and hpts too, thank goodness for that, otherwise I'd be broke! Although I'm going to try and show some restraint and not test before af is due.
mmh - how are you going? Has your bleeding stopped? I had a d&c so thankfully I didn't have much bleeding, it must be awful for you
Berniegirl - hugs to you for af arriving. I used to get down that first day of af, then I would look at it with fresh eyes, a fresh new cycle full of opportunity. I hope this month is the month for you. I use opk's religiously and yes, it's just like a pg test, although reading the results are different. It's to do with the strength of the line. I usually test at 10am and then again maybe at 2pm or 5pm. But I'm a poas addict
Rach85 - hi how are y going this cycle?
Cheekymonkey - hope you had a good time in Melbourne. Glad you were on virgin and not qantas! I hope you caught your eggie. When is af due?
mummylip - are you renovating too? We are in midst of it, it's sooooo messy and ongoing good luck with this cycle, hope it's your month.
Ja78 - congratulations! Good luck at your gp appt. hugs to you, on your ds due date. I'm sure it's bittersweet for you.
Hi to everyone else too that I'm sure I've missed, this thread moves fast!
Has anyone started trying straight from a d&c without af first? I'm almost 3 weeks post d&c, I guess just waiting for af. We haven't been trying as such, but we're not preventing either. I started my opk's last week, but nothing yet, I guess I'm just trying to figure out if my cycle is coming back or not. It's such a limbo time, I don't know what's going on. I have my ob appt this week so I'll ask him then about trying again. Last time, he did say to wait a cycle before trying again, but that was after a 2 nd trimester loss, so not sure if it's a different story with an early loss.

I have had a one week break and it has showed me how fast this thread moves!!!
I am sorry to see we have some new ladies in here, I hope your stay is only very short and I am very sad for your losses I hope you find lots of support and encouragement here like I have.
Ja - I am so so so so so happy for you, the best news. Hoping those nerves start to settle and this beautiful rainbow baby grows like a champ
Jacks - good luck for testing this week, no symptoms doesnt mean anything, sometimes we get them and sometimes we dont so hang in there
Tigger - I'm really sad AF arrived for you, I was hoping to see a BFP when I looked in here today. How are you doing? Hoping that next month is the one
Lama - totally get the meltdowns, I have been having lots lately too so and i hope this is a better week for you.
Mummylip - hope you are OK, yes you have been here too long and I will celebrate the day you graduate
Cherished - how are you going, have been thinking about you...
Renovatormum - I have read different things about waiting/not waiting. Its totally up to you, check at your appointment and be guided by them, so sorry for your losses
Angelbubs - the timing was right
Sorry to all those I have missed, I will catch up this week.
AFM - DH and I went away last weekend which was great. Have been really struggling of late. Its just over 3 weeks until DD was due to arrive and I am missing her so very much. My cycle is all over the place. Day 25 for me today and no O yet. I saw my OB on friday and she thought it was on the way. Lots of CM so hoping today or tomorrow I detect my surge. I have had tests to check everything and am waiting for a phone call today, hoping my hormones are settling. I went to see a naturopath last week and can highly recommend that too. The ones who specialise in fertility are great and have lots of good ideas if anyone has been thinking about it. Hoping there is still a chance for me to get a BFP before my due date
31-10-2011 08:36 #47
Renovatormum- My bleeding is almost stopped, its been 8 days since it started, longest period ever is what it feels like!
So i was introduced to the sperm meets egg method today, has anyone else heard of this??
31-10-2011 08:49 #48
Yep mmh I have been following it kind of, crazy cycle so a bit hard. If you look back on the old thread not that long ago Jacks posted a really great couple of paragraphs about it. Basically you start BDing on CD8 every second day. Your start OPK's on CD11 I think and then when you detect your surge you BD every day for 3 days, skip a day and then once more for good measure
31-10-2011 08:53 #49
Big hugs to Ja78, her beautiful angel son should have been arriving today. Sending you to get through the day xx
