    afternoon all,

    i just wanted to say that i am so sorry for my ranting this morning i have officially lost my freakin' mind but i have regained my senses now and i am ready to battle on your right AF isn't here doesn't feel like she is coming either ( not that it stops the knicker checking ) i think i had better explain myself otherwise you will all think i need locking up
    well you know how i lied and said that i wasn't going to do POAS well i did - stupid i know you don't have to tell me ... well any way from
    13dpo ( PRECISE)-i got a faint pos - i thought yeah residual drugs ok took 7 minutes to come up
    14dpo AM (fortel ultra) - little bit stronger pos took about 10 minutes to come up
    14 dpo PM 9Fortel ultra )- little bit stronger again came up in about a minute wooohooo you might think ....
    15 dpo AM - (precise) - negitive after first 5 mins posted my pathetic posts and went to check it again and there is the faintest line ever
    15dpo just now ( fortel ultra ) positive in about 4 mins

    so i am sorry for being stupid and your all going to say a line is a line but this is what happened last time with the faint lines and negitives thrown in and i MC so can you understand why i am nutty . so befoe i get carried away i have booked in to see a gp tomorrow for a BT

    Oh, Shazz you're funny. You make it sound like you've been sneaking in and out of rooms at the nursing home and robbing all the old grandmas and grandpas. You're just doing what you needed to do.
    I still have everything crossed!!
    I've just popped my head out from under the doona, perfect doona-day here - cloudy and cold.

    Default sad day

    hi Girls,

    a bit of a sad post today. I just found out a friend of a friend died this morning of an anurisim. She was only 33 and 7 months pregnant. They delivered the baby a little girl the chances of her surviving are slim at the best. i am in shock and am crying just writing this i just can't beleive it.

    Oh dear, I posted that last reply without even realizing we were on to August #5. Hmmm, pays to wake up properly before you type things. Must remember that when I go back to work. These 4am get ups are no good. Hopefully, now, I can stop stressing and sleep in like I'm supposed to on hols.
    I thanked a couple of you in the August #4 thread for your kind words.
    Sushee, Trish, Sheree and Tam, thanks to all of you as well. There's not really anything that can be said or done. It is what it is.
    Sushee, I know exactly what you mean. I suppose I am lucky because I had gone through the moving on stage 4 years ago. But if ever I was/were (?) to be asked my motto, it's this:

    "the heart wants what the heart wants"....

    that's how I live my life. As long as you don't go around intentionally hurting others, I believe that's the way to live. :-({|=

    So, don't be surpised if you see me on this board again doing the whole thing again!!!
    I'm having the mint slice bikkies (the WHOLE packet) tonight. Shortbread creams for brekky/lunch and 3 coffees.
    So, :smt021 wicked witch. She's still in my loo girls...TRUST me, she's definitely still there. I don't think there's any of my uterus left, sorry TMI.

    Good luck to everyone

    Racheal, just read your post. So, so sad. You wonder who in the universe makes these damn decisions on who to take sometimes.
    Hugs to you.

    Rach - I'm so sorry to hear aabout your friend. I am sending all of my energies to that precious little baby xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


    Sue - Sorry about the rotten witch, I can't stand that [email protected]#$%!!!!!!!!!!!


    I am eagerly awaiting her arrival though, I am starting my next cycle when she arrives - around 10 days to go!!!!

    I rang the nurses to find out what doses etc I will be on. They are as follows;

    Day 3 - start clomid 100mg

    Day 4 - Start gonal f 300iu (last time had 225)

    Scan around day 10 then orgulutron at some stage after that

    The nurse said the whole cycle from day1 of af to preg test is usually around 35 days which is a hell of a lot quicker than the down reg...YAY!!! Can't believe i'm actually excited to be soon starting on those shocking drug again, but I am!!!

    Love to everyone

    Ali xxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Rachael, I just wanted to say I am really sorry to hear about your friend. That is aweful news.

    Thanks everyone for welcoming me, it's unbelievable! I went for my day 10 scan today and I had 4 follies. 3 little one's and 1 mature so I am triggering tomorrow and IUI (AI) on Saturday. I only have this cycle and then one more and it's onto IVF for me so I have my fingers crossed I get a BFP in the next two months!
