    Hey guys

    Mako...so sorry AF arrived...hope you are doing okay...let's hope metformin is the answer...wishing you all the very very best chickie...

    Ktgirl...sorry to hear about the BFN...are you doing okay? It is still early...I remember reading on FF, that only 10% of pregnant women actually had a BFP on DPO 10...so wishing you good news...

    I'm doing fairly well now but had a hard morning...a BFN...and then we went to DH friend's house for breakfast. They have an 8 week old who is just gorgeous...but DH has never told them about our LT TTC history...so they just kept talking about how wonderful it is to be a daddy/mummy and how much it changes their life for the absolute better...etc...etc.

    All very wonderful things to say (and it is so beautiful to see them being gorgeous parents adoring their baby). I'm sure they would be been mortified if they knew our story (I think they think we just don't want kids at the moment...not their fault...DH told them about 12 months ago that a baby "just wasn't on the spreadsheet at the moment"...bit of a silly thing to say, but I think he just wanted to deflect the awkwardness...

    Anyway...a bit of retail therapy this afternoon has helped me feel a lot better...

    Hope you are all having a good weekend...

    Just want to let you all know that your support and friendship (even if it is in cyberspace) means so much...I don't know where I'd be without BB...

    Monnie, it's an awful situation to be in! Unfortunately when I find myself in that place these days there is usually tears... makes for very, very uncomfortable moments!

    I'm very tired... just got home from the christmas party with the other NSW girls... ready for bed... but I had EWCM this evening! Part of me is wanting to go jump DH, part of me wants to just go sleep, and part of me thinks it's hardly worth bothering as this is so damned unlikely to be a real ovulation, and his sperm are so bad... maybe tomorrow when I'm less sleepy...

    Hi Girls,
    Just got back from 10 days away. it was wonderful to escape with the kids. On the second day though i got another period. thats the third one since the lap on nov 16. i'm so angry at my body. I feel so crappy cranky and tired. why wont it co operate. i'm meant to see the fs on dec 14 my birthday but i think i will try and ring and see if i can get in sooner. I have had IT for 8 days this time. Thankgod i bought cloth pads-otherwise the expense would be another thing to make me angry. God is this ever going to end?Am i ever going to get a little cherub to hold,i feel so sad. I want to cry. it feels like its never going to happen. Things just go from worse to worse. At least being diagnosed with pcos i have an excuse for being FAT. I feel miserable.
    Hope everyone else is having a better go of things. have a lovely weekend lovelies...

    Mako- :hugs: I am so sorry to hear that AF arrived hopefully this Metformin will do the trick. I didn't experience too many side effects with the Metformin. I took it for three months and only felt like I needed to be sick about 3 times and that passed really quickly so I guess it depends on your body. Sweety I am sending you great big hugs right now hope you are doing ok.

    Pollyanna- I am glad that you enjoyed your time away with your kids but I am sorry to hear that AF has arrived again. It is really tough when your body won't cooperate but you know that you have heaps of support here and come and vent anytime you need too. I am sure you will hold your little miracle in your arms very soon.

    Monnie- Sorry to hear that you got another BFN but as you have said to me might just be too early. Glad you enjoyed your retail therapy nothing like buying a few things for yourself to cheer you up. I too know it is prob to early but I just couldn't help myself. I don't have any more tests in the house so I won't do another one until I see what happens with my temp. Still up at the moment but we both still have a few more days to endure. Good luck and hang in there.

    Mako, sorry to hear of AF arriving

    Monnie, it's probably just too early to test????? I never used to test until at least 14 DPO or around CD28 - 29.

    Hi

    I'm not enjoying the Metformin so far. Makes me feel ill within 30 mins of taking it. I hope this doesn't last too long :frown:

    Monnie sorry to hear that you got a bfn. I hope its just a little too early and you get a bfp when you test again. There's nothing like a bit of retail therapy to cheer us up hey. I have to agree with you about the support in here too. I wonder how on earth I would get through some days.

    Pollyanna Hang in there sweet, your time will be here soon I'm sure.I'm sending you a .

    Ktgirl, How are you hun. I hope you are ok. When are you due to test after your IUI??? Or do you have to go back to fs????

    BW How are you today? I hope you had great night at the dinner.

    Hi to you ladies I've missed tonight, hope you are all great.

    Morning girls.

    Mako- That sucks that the Metformin is giving you side effects. Hopefully your body gets used to it quickly enough so you don't feel sick anymore. Although I was pretty lucky with all of the medication that I have taken when I did feel like being sick I used to tell my work mate that my body was just trying to prepare me for morning sickness

    Monnie- How is your temp looking this morning? I just checked your chart but there isn't an update there yet (but I suppose I get up at the crack of dawn so you are probably being sensible and are still asleep) I find it hard to sleep when I am coming to the end of the TWW because I keep waking up thinking "is it time to take my temp yet" and I am anxious about what it will be, pretty silly I know

    I am just plodding along for the next couple of days to see what my temp does. I don't have any more HPT in the house so I can't do another test. I will have to hold myself back from going to the shop to buy more. I think that if my temp does stay up I will buy some tests either on Wed on Thur I think that is wishfull thinking

    Also I just have to say that I hate Monday the weekend just goes too quickly.

    Hi Girls,
    I hope you are all enjoying your day.

    Mako i'm sad to hear that the metformin isnt agreeing with you. i'm keeping track of how you are going with it cause i could be next.I hope you are feeling better today.
    Kt girl,goodluck with being patient and not testing. its good to have control. It sets you up for parenting.lolHope your temperatures are still good.

    I rang the fs specialist this morning and explained what had been going on since the lap. He said why didnt you call me earlier...I want you in here today. I said its alright i dont mind waiting. he said no its important that you get in today. Oh god;what does that mean??Is there worse news about the lap?Can it get worse?What if its something really horrible like the c word?God, now i'm really scared and dont want to go. Have to take my mum to hospital first to see an endocrinologist to get her surgery date. She has to have a bilateral adrenalectomy. I'm so scared for her. I'll be with her every step of the way.Anyway will keep you all posted. i've come to the conclusion that life is a bit ****ty.

    Love and hugs to everybody.

    Pollyanna - I was thinking about you last night and was going to urge you today to call your FS. That many episodes of bleeding after your lap don't sound right to me either (not that I'm an expert, just going on my own experiences).

    Trust me, the outcome of my first lap has proven to be complete disaster, but it's better to know what's going on and address it. I'm sure it's nothing major.

    I might be an eejit here, but what's the horrible 'c' word??

    Let us know how you go. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and hoping there is no more bad news, just blue skies ahead!!

    Well...I can't quite believe this...but I got my first BFP ever!!! Is this really it?

    I'm pretty sure it is...as I've now done 4 tests (thankyou lullaby conceptions!)...and they are all positive...started very faint and are getting stronger.

    I have very mixed feelings...shock, excitement, fear and a little sadness. I know what it is like to read these announcements, having been on the other side of them many times. I just want to say that you girls mean so much to me...your support, interest and care has astounded me.

    This would be so much better if we could all announce BFP's simultaneously...but I know that's not what happens...but I just wanted to say I understand how you might be feeling...and I SO SO SO hope and pray that you guys have your BFP's really really soon.

    Ktgirl...I checked out your chart...looking good girl! Real good! So wishing amazing things for you.

    Pollyanna...all the best with your FS appointment...I hope he gives you answers that work. All the best to your Mum too.

    Mako...sorry the metformin is yucky...I hope the side effects shift really quickly.

    BW, Beibei, KateY01, Flowerchild, MissBelinda and to all you other amazing girls...thankyou for helping me so much.

    Monnie - Congratulations on your BFP! That is wonderful news!!! Another successful clomid story

    I don't know about anyone else in here, but I am ALWAYS happy to read about BFP's especially from the girls in here. We all deserve that feeling, and the happiness it brings.

    I think the horrible "c" word is cancer isn't it?

    Monnie - congratulations. I have a big smile on my face and you put it there!

    Beibei - film and stage. Don't get actively involved much anymore but still have quite a few friends in the industry.

    Pollyanna - hope you are feeling better about things. What news about the bleeding? Has it settled now? Please let us know. I am thinking of you.

    Willow - how are you? Maybe you will have a surprise before you start IVF. Stranger things have happened you know!

    To everyone else - I hope life is treating you well. I am looking forward to the New Year and am living life as it comes and trying to let go of all my obsessions. It can be so liberating.

    Take care all of you lovely ladies.
    Hugs to you all.

    Congratulations Monnie!

    Hey Debbie. I am doing OK.

    Forgive me for not holding my breath while I wait for that 'surprise'!! I'm just not that lucky. Given the odds I think it'd be more than a surprise, it'd be a miracle.

    I too am looking forward to the new year. This has easily been the worst year of my life and am hoping that things will improve greatly in 2007 and this time next year we'll have a new baby and I'll be able to put all this behind me.

    Congratulations, Monnie!

    So happy that one of has had success this month. Never feel bad for bringing that news in here - it helps to know the success stories, even if it does some times bring us to tears, as we need that hope to carry us on.

    I made an appointment to see my GP to get a referral today. He's off this week so it's Thursday next week before I can get in. Was planning to make the appointment with the specialist this afternoon, but DH is recording a friend of ours and I'm now banished to the study and not allowed to move around the house as the microphone is so sensitive it picks up the creaky floor boards! So I will need to wait until they are finished before I can even get up to go to the loo!

    Crappy day at work... 4 more days... that's the only thing keeping me sane!
