Yeah, Ive got a doctors appointment for first thing Monday morning.That's not good at all. If that was me I would see a doctor? Especially if it's not normal and you are about to TTC. I've also downloaded a few apps, but I won't start using them until I'm off the pill. Not much changes from month to month for me at the moment
The reason I know I am SO regular, is because of the apps. I also used them to track when I was getting some symptoms like headaches and nausea, which is what made me realise that the headaches that i was frequently getting were hormonal, so they have been really helpful for a few reasons.
I also had a really bad period last month.
I had HORRIBLE cramps, and nausea, so bad that I spent 2 days on the couch with a blanket and movies, and was really, really heavy.
I was getting woken up through the night because the cramping was so terrible.
So I went to the doc last month to make sure that this was ok, and she checked everything out and gave me some pain killers for this month, I was expecting it to be bad again!! So I think that there is something NQR at the moment. Hopefully its nothing major!
Im also having trouble with using my phone, that my subscribed threads keep disappearing for some reason I was not subscribed to this thread, and had to actually go and look for it! is anyone else having the same problem?

MrsLa - god your AF dramas sound terrible. I hope your appointment on Monday pulls up some positive outcomes. I fear the day I ever have to experience a bad period!!
Nomie - your wedding plans sound amazing!! I loved my wedding day so much, it was SO much fun!
On a different topic, I had always been a big hater of epidurals growing up because my mum had an epidural with me (I was a c section - I was breech and she has a teeny tiny pelvis) and it had bad side effects. The doctor hit a nerve and caused permanent damage to her leg, she can't walk properly, she can walk just not very well.
As time has gone by and I have started to face the fact that I will have to squeeze a giant baby out of my argh small space and I have started to think epis are a god send and then just recently I declared I was going to have an epi and there was no changing my mind and I was most certainly not going to utter a word of it to my mother, I figured doctors are better trained and technology and medical advancements would take the risk out of it.
Then today I got a call from my mother giving me an update on my aunt who is suffering from severe back pain, my aunt had tried all types of pain meds and nothing worked so the doctor suggested an epi for some relief while they run more tests and she took it. The doctor hit a nerve and she has no control over her bladder and Bowels and will spend the rest of her life with a colostomy bag!
So now I'm freaking out about not having an epi (there is no chance in hell ill have one after my mum and now my aunt) and I'm going to have to have a baby and feel it and oh my gosh it is really scaring the hell out of me and now every time I have a happy baby thought it is very quickly followed by a horrible painful baby birthing thought. How do I get over this fear??????

Disney, that really scares me too! I've just declared to DF "Even if I'm in heaps of pain and demand an epi, don't let me get one!" Until now I've always thought I'll get a light epi just to take the edge off contractions while I could still feel what was happening. I also thought that doctors would be better at it now. Obviously not. That is not a risk I'd like to take. I'd rather endure birth pains. I had in my mind I'd like to deliver on all fours as opposed to lying on your back (I hear gravity helps make it easier and you are less likely to tear). I'm sure there are other pain relief methods we could use? I was talking to my mum the other night. She didn't use any pain relief for any of her four births! Not even gas. If she can do it I figure I can (hopefully I've inherited her pain tolerance!) I have a funny feeling I would hate gas and it would make me vomit. Disney, have you thought of water births at all? Women have survived for years without pain relief. I don't know if that helps at all? Haha.
