    Sushee, my DD (nearly 2) was sitting on my lap earlier, pointed to your picture and said "oooooooh. pretty girl". Awww, too cute.

    She's right though!!

    Not having such a good day today... It's that busy time of year at work (yes, to the person who asked in the last thread, I'm a maths teacher), and I was racing around absolutely flat out... got to lunch time and I was feeling quite faint and shaky - just needed food! I commented that I didn't feel so good and a passing casual teacher dropped the morning sickness comment... that then had me in tears! Fortunately, most of the women in my staff room know something of what's going on with me, so there was someone around to talk some sense into me... Starting to wonder if it's ever going to happen for us.

    erm... just noticed I'm about a week behind in cycle days... can someone fix me up?

    O BW, sorry that you are having a bad day. Hope you feel better soon.

    Me *VENT* ahead, sorry girls, I dont do this to often.

    As some of you know im very near 40, 3 weeks actually! and if I wasnt pregnant by then i was going to stop. Today Im very very sad, af turned up bang on 28 days. I really thought this was the month, had some symptoms,so I have landed really heavy to say the least. I dont know what to do!! I thought I had it sorted, and would be happy to move on if it didnt happen, but Im sitting here devestated. What if it is never going to happen. I thought after the Lap back in july i would fall easy, duh was I wrong. Its now 19 months, 3 miscarriages and nothing. Im so disappointed. Dont know where to go. My Doc seems happy enough to let me wait alittle more b4 anything else... HULLO!! all my test reveal nothing is wrong. I have heard many times on other posts that girls in there mid 30's are worried about there eggs, and i think O my what about mine. Our DS is nearly 3. I had him when I was 37 no trouble at all. So could things have gone down hill from then. Wouldnt tests tell me if something else was wrong. Prog test reveal all is ok...
    O am so sorry for the long post. Im just glum glum today and I normally pick up and feel positive for the next month. But today I just cant... I so want another baby... just so badly... I dont really know how you just say o well lets give up!!
    Maybe tomorrow I will feel better.
    Also I dont know where I really belong on BB. Being my age and all and running out of time, I dont think I fit in, so hope you dont mind listening to me waffle. Clomid was my next thing , thats why I kinda slotted in here! But am thinking I prob should Buzz off.
    Hey all you other beautiful woman, I hope today is going ok, and we see some BFP's very soon. Sorry for no personals.
    take care

    this journey is such a lonely isolating one, but please don't think that because you don't quite fit anywhere specific, that you're not supported and cared for. I too am finding that I don't know where I quite fit anymore, but am still willing to let the lovely people of BB support me and help me through my own unique difficulties. Please don't feel like you need to leave. You have a right to be here and helped along as much as the next person.

    Willow, aw your DD *blush^ I could kiss her! Lol! How cute!

    BW, sorted out your CD. I'm sorry you had a bad day. I used to get the 'must be morning sickness' thing too. I hated it with a vengeance.

    thankyou sushee, you are so right. Its nice to be able to come on here and support all you lovely woman. It can just be so hard, and often I find myself staring into the computer screen, not wanting to 'air' my sadness and sometimes depression. So I dont. And then weeks go by and then I dont know what to say at all!
    Will try harder.
    thankyou for your kind words. Needed today!

    Chelle :hugs:

    I understand how upsetting this is. As for eggs being old - there is more to it than that. Your nutrition, your general health. Statistically it's true that "older" women have a higher risk of miscarriage but conversley there are many women that are your age (and mine!) and older who have healthy babies.

    If you want another child try not to focus on your age. Have you had hormonal tracking throoughout your cycle? Is your luteal phase greater than 12 days? Tell your body that your eggs are beautifully healthy and tell your body you want to have another pregnancy that results in a live healthy baby. Come in here and let us all give you a hug and a shoulder to lean on.

    As Sushee says we are all unique - we have our own story. We are all wonderful women though and we can share each others journey and triumph with each others successes and cry with each others sadness. Hopefully though the sadness is behind us and it's positive pregnancy tests and strong healthy babies for us all!

    Pollyanna - yep you're right. A lap does give you an incision site and you can have winding pain. I was lucky. My incision caused me no trouble at all and when the stitches were removed on the Friday (had it done Monday) everything was already almost healed. (A quick healer I guess.) My shoulder pain was due to the gas they use to "blow" you up but as I said I was fortunate enough for it to be more of an annoyance rather than actual pain. Also, not everyone feels discomfort from the gas.Everyone is different. Maybe I heal quickly, maybe I have a high pain threshlod, I don't know. But not every procedure goes exactly the same for every person and also it does not neccessarily go the same each time for the same person. Different person, different surgeon etc. As I said, I was lucky that time but it doesn't mean things would definitely go as smoothly if I had to have another one someday.
    Best wishes,
    Debbie

    Chelle,
    I know where you are coming from. When we lost our last baby Luke in September last year I said we would try again for 6 months and if no luck stop. Wellllll, it's November 2006 now! I am still hopeful especially as I now know that there isn't anything really wrong and as my OB said, the Clomid should give me a "kick start". Here's hoping he is right.
    Big hugs to you and don't ever be worried to vent!
    Debbie

    Pollyanna - forgot to say that I had a hysterscopy (kind of like a D&C) at the same time as the lap. So I had an incision in the tummy button and one just below the panty line and and the hysterscopy was done vaginally.
    Hugs,
    Debbie

    Hi

    Chelle66 I am sorry that you are having a really bad day. I hope things improve for you soon. I'm sending you a great big hug cause it sounds like you need one

    Princess Just remember to take one day at a time and know that we are all here for you.I hope if af does arrive this weekend that she is kind to you. Sending you a hug too

    Has anyone had any pain similar to a stitch on either side of abdomen on or around cd 24? If so what was it and how long did it last? I have this type of pain atm and its driving me mad. I had similar pain on the oposite side in september when I had a cyst but I am trying really hard not to think its the same. Would appreciate some advice.

    Thanks, Sushee.

    Big for you Chelle. Doesn't matter what box you feel like you do or don't belong in, don't worry if all you seem to post is nagative. We've all had times like that, and the thing that has helped me out most, is posting it here and sharing my troubles. Realising that you aren't alone is wonderful. The women here in this thread, and on the whole site in general, are just wonderful. Burdens are much easier to carry when they are shared.

    Princess, I have been missing you and thinking about you. Lots of for you, too.

    Not much to say on my end of things... Just generally plodding along. Won't have acupuncture this week, so looking forward to a relaxed Friday evening for a change. Sent lots and lots of questions off to a friend of mine so waiting for answers but thinking very seriously about which specialist to go to, and what monitoring my GP can do for me between now and then...

    you guys are all truly amazing. Such wondeful warm comments. I can go on and I think I will try to feel a little differently to the 'age' thing. Normally I dont let it get to me. maybe cos its not many sleeps till I actually turn it.
    I will post personals tomorrow.
    hugs to each and everyone of you!
    love

    Princess - we are all here for you so don't forget it. Take care and have a good weekend.

    Hugs to everyone,

    Debbie, thanks for your encouraging support. Does make you wonder how one wd get on without it.
    BW, how are you today? I agree with Debbie, hope you have a relaxing weekend.What level children do you teach maths too? that wd be a hard job. My DS is always putting his maths in front of me, just cos he knows I have no idea! smartybum(14andhalf)hmm

    Mako, sorry I cant help you with your pain question, I had alot of things happening to me on and off b4 AF, I got really confused about it all.hope someone else here can help u.

    Princess, you poor girl, hope you are feeling better soon enough, miscarriage is a horrible thing.life can be so cruel. Big hugs to you.

    Well today I had to go to the Docs, because I have had the worst P pain! thought I was going to die. Flooded last night. Anyway she has put me on some killer drug, said its the latest wonder drug out . Cant understand why I am having it tho.Its still unbearable at the moment. Sure hope it passes soon.
    Anyway also had a good talk about the baby thing! as all you other woman have said, it can happen, it does just take longer.... and sometimes alot longer, so have to get a positive ora around me, and just keep trying and hope that we get lucky soon enough, and forget about the '40'thing..I dont feel it, so why should I let it bother me!She said im fit and healthy, I have always taken care of myself, so that should help. SOOOOOOOOOO... on that note,I have opks for next month, might help with the guess work, because last month I did feel like I was 'O'ing for about a fortnight!!!lol.
    Deb, you sound so posivite, I feel that alittle has just rubbed off on me, so thankyou so much for that!!! How are YOU?
    Well I need to shake this permanent headache of mine, its just the pits. Pills havent helped that much.
    So take care love

    I am happy to hear you sounding better Chelle. I am 39, and I reckon I've got gorgeous eggs ready to hatch!!!! I am thinking you have too! Try not to even speak or think of "it taking a lot longer" when you are older. It doesn't always and it may not. SAY positive things to yourself really tell that body of yours that it is healthy and can produce a beautiful healthy baby. It relly does have an impact if you have cared for your body and do good things to it. It DOES make a difference. You ARE going to have a healthy strong baby Chelle!

    Thank you for asking how I am. I am going well. I have times where I can't believe I have to go through ttc again and all that goes with that. But then I think of the excitement of finding I am pregnant again and that is what I am choosing to focus on. Some days I feel really sad about my "Goodbye Babies" and I just let myself feel that for a time and then fix on the future with a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. I am hoping that it happens quite swiftly! I will begin clomid when I get a period which I am assuming will be at the end of November early December. A positive pregnancy test would be the worlds best Christmas gift for me - (hello Universe did you hear that???!!!!)

    Debbie - how is the TWW going for you? How are you feeling?

    Michelle - How are you and Alf? I haven't heard from you for a few days.

    Butterfly and Princess :hugs: to you both.
