    Scooby- No it's not just you. I analyse everything too. Right now my BB's are killing me and I'm thinking 'is it the drugs or could I really be pregnant'!! And yeah, you will be pregnant so safer to stay in Aus. Gee I would LOVE a holiday but my time will come soon.



    Lulu- No I'm not a Libran, I'm a scorpian- but don't hold that against me!! And yeah I probably would do the POAS behind my best friends back. She has a beautiful 10 month old daughter who my DH and I are godparents to. I'm sure all of us here on this journey realise it's just so hard to explain to
    friends with kids the desire to be a mum and the agony that comes with TCC. I didn't realise you were using a donor. How blessed you are to have found that special person. I can truly imagine that you don't need the gossip and questions. Gee I hope I can help you in some small way...

    Will chat soon, I'm SOOOOOO busy watching TV!!!!

    Allo all

    katones how was your bt?

    Bel we are not telling people either, and after this week I'm oh so glad about that. It was hard enough having to answer qtns from the 3 or 4 people that do know!

    minimouse fingers crossed for you, know what you mean about looking for implantation spotting. Glad I'm not the only one

    All is OK here, in fact the this week has passed faster than last - I almost even made an appointment at the same time as my BT on friday! Guess it's good that I'm distracted. DH emails me every 5 mins with another article he's found on the web that makes him positive it's possible I'm pregnant. It's helping me to feel positive too.

    I'm over analysing everything - for the past 2 weeks I've struggled to get to 5pm and have a Nanna nap after work. I went to bed last night at 6pm out of habit and was just lying there trying to figure out what was wrong. I wasn't tired in the slightest!! I hope that's not a bad sign... I haven't even been feeling that sick this week. My tummy and BB are still quite swollen, but then again I have been having many deep and meaningful conversations with tim tams lately. LOL

    I'm considering doing POAS tonight to see if the line has gotten stronger or disappeared altogether. I've got a thousand meetings on Friday and don't want to break down at work (again). Or I'll get the nurse to call DH and swear him to secrecy until after work.

    Sorry for babbling, guess I'm just as obsessed as ever!!

    Hey does anyone know if a raised temperature is significant? I don't have a fever and feel otherwise well but my temp is def up.

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful, sunny BFP kinda afternoon

    *hugs*

    oooooh Tish - raised temp is excellent infact...
    pls do POAS first thing in the morning and not at night - makes a big difference. I feel so good about this....am sure all going well. Believe me when I tell you we all over-analyse everything. Yesterday I was yawning all afternoon. Now being realistic I know it cant be because of pregnancy yet...but the imagination will still over-rule realism everytime..

    Bel - you are just devine...we will definately play bellybelly mummies together!!

    Tish- If Dr Lulu says raised temp is good then I say believe her. I also agree to do the POAS first thing in the morning. My mum is a nurse and totally agrees with this too. It's great to hear you so strong. I think its a good idea to get your DH to take the call on Friday if you have to work.

    Lulu- Can't wait to play bellybelly mummies with you. We'll be just a few days apart! Are you working at the moment? I'm unable to work cause of my job so am at home just having some time for myself. Enjoying my TV big time and reading some good books. It's nice to relax but hard not having anything to take my mind off things. My DH has this week off as well but is out and about paying bills etc. and begging medicare for some money!!! Over-analysing is what I do best at the moment (Oh and procrastinating over POAS), I'm not a sicko but keep touching my BB's. Man are they sore- but I do know that could be the drugs. So I get the yawning thing..

    MM how dare you go to dinner and forgo your duties to the TWW girls........
    You are a dag im actually feelin ok dont really feel emotionally any different to how i did yesterday, i think cause i did the whole emotional rollercoaster last time i decided that i wasnt putting myself through it again, so its ok you may go out to dinner if you REALLY have to (just dont boast about how good it was )
    Tish: glad to hear your goin well and thinkin +ive high temps sound excellent, quick story (im so good at these) when i had my son i had US @5 weeks they said he probably wasnt going to make it as heartbeat was 2 low and i had some hemmorages had a week of hell (like i need to tell you) well needless to say 1 week later everything looked awesome and i now have a darling 4 year old. So you just never know!!!!!!
    One more: i really hope you get some answers soon, it is so frustrating, can you get to see your OBG or a fertility specialist. Also some of the girls were talking about acupuncture to bring on AF a couple of threads back, i also used homoeopathics as i had weird cycles and it worked a treat !Good luck. feel free to hang out here the girls are awesome

    Lulu- Scary thing!! I call her Opie too and I love her! The week before my transfer I taped her every day so I would have something to watch while doing this TWW!! I think I watched them all even before my transfer so that was useless!! I actually met her once on Rodeo Drive in LA and shook her hand- I was so excited!! WHAT A DORK!! I'm a flight attendant so just won't risk getting on a plane and working at all pregnant and definately not now while this little baby is trying to find a comfy place in me to grow! So this journey is all the more harder by the fact that I can't work til I know what is happening and definately can't get back on a plane when I get my good news. But both myself and DH are adamant about it so it's not a hard decision to be made... What about you??

    You guys are chatty today! *giggle* It's good, helping me to procrastinate at work

    Scooby that sounds awful, must have been very hard for you. I'm so glad it all worked out OK in the end.

    Oooooh I'm so glad to hear that raised temps is good! I was 37.7 yesterday which is a good degree higher than I am normally.

    I was thinking I should POAS at approx the same time I did it on Sunday night, so I was comparing apples to apples? Also gonna use same brand. Whatchyoo think?

    LOL @ Bel & MM re feeling self up...... Something else I'm glad someone else does :P

    Tish- Lulu makes me sound like a SICKO!! I'm really not playing with myself- just the occasional feel!!!! And all for a good reason I think. I reckon still wait til morning to POAS. Much higher concentration then. And I would definately use the same brand. The less head games the better at this stage. And now you have got me thinking about temps. Something else to obsess about. I'm going to need serious therapy soon... Keep positive

    Hi girls,
    back for a little while tonight, still think I have a bit more sleep to catch up on yet but I'll hang around for a little while.
    a little about myself, I'm 34 Dh is 35 and works shift work.
    have been on IVF for three years now, have had one success DD 19mths and are currently trying for an addition have been slowly making my way through my snowbubs and I now have three left with one on board, had a M/C and D&C in November so I'm definately going to try not getting my hopes up quite so high as I did then, and I am guilty of POAS before test date LOL, but I promise I will try to contain myself.
    I work in long daycare in the 3-5year old room with 30 children and two other staff members and have been doing this job for 12 years, I have fur baby long haired bordercollie named Shep(original I know)............and that is about me I think.

    Ok so I've just had a mini melt-down. Crying hysterically on the phone to my mum-poor mum...They say these things like TTC are sent to test us but really- how much testing do we need??

    Feeling much better now, just the headache that follows hysteria!! And this was my first melt down this TWW so I'm doing better than last time. I think you ladies have all made this time much easier for me..so thanks

    Blizz- thanks for sharing your story. Hard not to get your hopes up isn't it. I had a natural pregnancy late 2006 which resulted in an ectopic where I lost my tube and I tell you I have been praying to conceive ever since then. But then I know I'll be scared when I do conceive again because I remember my loss so vividly. But I've been seeing a counsellor at my clinic and she has taught me (well tried to teach me..) to take one day at a time and not worry about tomorrow til you get through today. And I really do feel much more positive using this philosophy. Hope all the ladies here help you. They have been saviours for me the last few days

    Bel that sounds like a sound philosophy, I really do wish you and all of the members waiting the dreaded TWW all the best and the most I can muster.

    Beautiful Bel...you poor little petal...I hope you're ok. Meltdown is normal so dont beat yourself up...ok? I think a good cry is excellent medicine..infact I do it quite often.
    Ohhhhh so you fly...my bro recently took a retrenchment package from QF longhaul. Are you dom or intl? Me - a humble (or not) travel agent...see..now you know why we bond..
    OMG - I am sooooooooooo jealous you met Opie!!!!!! She is the best...how sad are we??? OK OK I'll admit...lately cause there has been nothing on TV - I've taped her everyday - and sadly as all repeats I have seen almost all of them either here or in the States. This is just too funny...I love you girl!!

    Scooby-dooby - I am glad you're remaining calm..it is so hard. I just did my last Pregnyl shot..so no point POAS till about Sunday or Monday. I have BT Wednesday if I dont get AF before..

    Tish - I stand by my - test in the a.m...this is when you'll really know or not...and you must let us know immediately!!!!

    Katones - where are you hun..I hope all is ok.

    Blizz - that long daycare is going to be hard when WHEN your pregnant for the first 12 weeks... those kids can be hard work - and so many of them!

    Lulu, have done it once already, have got more incentive this time around as once I go on maternity leave I'm going to work from home in family daycare (it won't be worth going back once you take in to account childcare fees for 2)
    30 children verses 7 I'm really excited about that!!!!! Longday care has been great just think 12years is enough (for now anyway)

    Lulu- isn't it strange how the universe just sometimes knows what you need and who you need to meet? I fly for QF longhaul as well. Have been for 7 years now. When I fell pregnant late 2006 I dropped back to part time though as my DH flies as well and we thought it would be the only way we could have a little person in our lives and not leave our jobs. I'd love to know who your brother is cause I'm sure DH or I would know him for sure. Not sure how much you want to disclose on this thread though so let me know if you want my email to tell me or how I put an email on my profile or something. Travel agent...Great job!! You must work ridiculously long hours though. Did you live in the states for a while or are you from there?? As for the Opie thing, I truly thought I was one of a kind. It's great to know somebody else is just as obsessed as me. Today's show was beautiful..made me cry a bit though- damn hormones!!
