LooLaa, we are TTC our second.
I unfortunately experienced the waiting at home after finishing up work at 37 weeks, but waited and waited and waited and waited until 10 days overdue when I got induced. I sort of missed out on the calling DH and telling him to come home I'm in labour
Is this your first or subsequent?
MrsT - On the whining front, it can be hard to take, especially if you aren't UTD yet, but try and block her out, that can be hard too I know, but some people can get caught up in the 'romance' of getting pregnant and having a baby, that they don't understand the reality of what pregnancy is really like and given her attitude to 'not asking for it' because you're right, she technically did, but she probably doesn't realise it.
It's a bit like me, I had no idea how hard newborns were, I thought -as everyone says- all they do is eat and sleep and that was never a reality for me as a. It wasn't as simple as that and b. She had silent reflux which wasn't diagnosed until 4.5 months old which made everything worse, I was completely unprepared, but I realise I can't complain as I'm the one who wanted a baby.
So just playing devils advocate a little as I can see why her behaviour is upsetting, but I can also kind of see where she may possibly becoming from.

Allie I completely understand where you're coming from and I 100% agree. I know that being prg will be super hard (esp for me - a hypochondriac and a whinger haha) and I'm super supportive of her 99.9% of the time, as I'm one of the very few who know so she comes to me for that assistance. It was just the "I didn't ask for this" that really got to me. Yes, yes you did! This was a planned baby lol. I think for me, getting these bfns will be good for me - make me appreciate it more when the time does come.
Which reminds me - coco!!! Where's our update woman!!!! :-D

It's almost one or the other - hard TTC and/or pregnancy and easier baby or smooth sailing TTC and pregnancy, then difficult baby. I'm unsure one is better than the other, but both give us a reality check that's for sure!

Anyway I bought a test this morning but DH wants to be there when I take it. So bubhub is distracting me during the longest 5 hours of my life waiting for him :P

My follow up u/s is booked for the morning. I need to set my alarm I think as it's so early - 8.30!! Fingers crossed I get the all clear then I just have to sit and wait for the hcg to drop. It took 4wks last time (I think from memory) for the level to drop right down so considering I was 12.5wks then and 10wks this time, I guess I should expect 3-4wks again??? I just want the hcg & the bleeding gone so we can get back to it (haha whinging much Michelle )

Luckily I work full time, but no matter how physically busy u are, ur mind is still silently obsessing unfortunately. I just can't ever switch off!!

Michelle I really hope ur levels can drop nice and quickly so u can get back into it again. Who knows, maybe you can be the first in the new year to get a bfp ;-)
(I'll be the last in this year please!! Hahaha)

I agree with Mrs t, and you definitely deserve to be the first of the year to get a BFP. But if and when I do I don't want to leave the thread lol
