    Willow and Michelle, you'll both be in my prayers for tomorrow. Michelle, I hope tomorrow is as peaceful as possible for you. Willow, I do hope this surgery doesn't put any more obstacles in your path and that you have a quick and speedy recovery.

    Time for me to take my tired, sleepy, hayfever-fuzzed brain to bed.

    Goodnight, sleep well.

    Stupid AF. Wish it would just make up it's mind and start. Still passing brown stuff and the occasional red blood. Not normally like this. Usually once the brown spotting starts then AF follows in force about 2 days later. This has been going on for 4 days now. I'm not pregnant so lets get on with the next cycle if you please. Is this Clomid trying to lengthen that Lp? Hope so.

    Hi, to everyone,
    Debbie

    The first cycle can be a bit iffy Debbie. I hope it starts up in earnest for you. I would give your obs a phone though. She/he may think it's a good idea to begin the next round of clomid now since there has been four days of bleeding... Just a thought...

    Hi girls, today wasn't my surgery, was just a pre-op appt at the hospital to do paperwork, bloods etc etc. I just meant that it would be a long day because it's so far away (left home at 7am and only just got back now!) sorry for the confusion, but thank you as always for your warm wishes and support. My surgery is next Tuesday and after today's appt I am getting nervous - I wish it was today and then it'd be all over and done with.

    Debbie, I totally know what you mean about AF, mine has been exactly the same for the last 6 months since my lap in May. It is soooooo frustrating!! I have found that since taking clomid my cycles just keep improving, this one has been my most 'normal' cycle to date in relation to AF. Deb might have a point there though, I'd probably considering taking clomid from tonight, I usually find it actually helps to 'bring on' AF.

    Michelle, sweetie, I hope today has been a very special day for you and your DH. I have been thinking of you.....

    Thank you girls for your thoughts for today. DH has popped out for a minute so I thought I would fill you in on my day.

    We went to mass this morning at Calvary chapel (I was right near you holding your hand too Willow) with the nuns and they had Father John (who did our service for Caitlyn's funeral too) include us in the mass which was so lovely. It made me feel very special to have her recognised out loud. He is a lovely man who had a few tears this morning after remembering our service nearly 12 months ago (he cried then too).

    Greg and I went to Coogee for breakfast and did the cryptic crossword before coming home for me to have a nanna nap.

    The only good / bad part of the day is that friend's of ours had their little boy today - which I predicted they would when we found out they were pregnant. They said to Greg they felt priveliged to share Caitlyn's birthday but it was still hard to hear. I am mourning the loss of my baby and they are celebrating the birth of theirs. Life keeps giving challenges to overcome.

    Anyway, there is a beautiful cloudy storm front coming in just in time for Caitlyn's arrival time of 4.40pm. I knew she would visit For those of you in Sydney, watch the storm and think of my baby. For those elsewhere, thank you for thinking of us today and sending your love. Having people remember our daughter and her birth means so much to us on this special day.

    Hi Michelle,
    Well its 4pm here and I have been thinking of Caitlyn and you and Greg. There is a big storm coming our way. The clouds are grey and thick and rolling in over the cow paddocks. The sky looks beautiful... I am shedding a little tear now... One day I am sure we will understand the heartbreak and why these things had to happen...

    I think Caitlyn and Bob and Eggy and my other Angel son who I was too afraid to name are all watching over us. I know that my angels have a beautiful friend in yours...
    Take care Michelle. As I said my candle will light tonight for your daughter Caitlyn.
    Hugs to you...

    Ok I'm back again. Wow you girls have been busy in here lol.

    Flowerchild, you avaiter looks fantastic. What a beautiful idea.

    Michelle, I also meant to say that I'm also thinking of your dh and your family today too.


    BW, Good on you for taking matters into your own hands. You will be able to go and tell your specialist how to do his job lol. Good luck on the journey of finding a new specialist. Maybe you could ask some of your friends who they see. That was how I came accross mine. I then went to my gp and told her who I wanted to see. I then found out that my gp also saw my specialist and had both of her bubs delivered by her too.

    Chelle, Good luck to you for this cycle.

    Willow, All the best to you for your op next Tuesday. It'll be over b4 you know it.

    Debbie, I hope af sorts herself out for you. Good luck to you also for this cycle.

    Monnie, Welcome. You have come to the right place for lots of support. Hope you get a bfp soon.

    Hope I haven't missed anybody.

    As for me, I'm in the tww again, so will see what next week brings. Back to specialist on Monday.

    Hi girls,

    been a bit MIA, for no really good reason though. Nothing happening much with me. Currently coming to the end fo the TWW and hoping like hell that it turns into a 9 month wait!! Actually feeling quite good about this cycle (again, no reason, but I just do).

    How many of you feel like you are just spending your lives trying to have a baby? I got a phone call the other morning from a friend of the family who is a manager in a particular organisation. Apparently, there is a vacancy in my area of the state to do the same sort of job as him (in agricultural education) and he suggested to his boss that I might be a suitable candidate for the job. The phone call I got was completely out of the blue and I never even considered it prior to speaking to the guy. But while he was talking, all I could think about was that by the grace of God, I would be pg right now and that even if I wanted to take on some outside work, I would not be able to give more than about 6 - 7 months. The chances are very high that I would refuse the job based not only on my 16 month old son, but because I am living my life on month at a time, hoping to get and stay pg.

    I am doing exactly what I have suggested others in this thread not to do! To not live life. Argghhhhhh.

    I guess, deep down, I don't really want to go back to work at this time (I am fortuate that I don't have to...PLENTY of work around the farm!!) and therefore it is easy to find excuses. And TTC is a pretty good excuse!

    Deb - I was thinking the same but AF showed up last night. I think I may start this round tonight rather than wait until tomorrow (last month I took the tablet in the morning). What do you think?

    Michelle - your post was beautiful and I was sure thinking of your darling daughter. Hugs to you and DH.

    Pollyanna - I know you won't be seeing this post today as you are in for your lap. Do let us know how you went as soon as you are feeling like chatting to us. Take care.

    Willow - bowel prep? Never heard of it. I don't envy you although I have to confess your post regarding it had me chuckling. I hope you don't mind. I just have the worst sense of humour. Good luck girl and before you know it, it will all be over.

    Hayseed - good to see you back. I understand exactly what you mean about putting your life on hold and planning everything around having a baby even though we aren't pregnant yet. I'm sure we are normal. And anyway, I've got my fingers crossed for you and your "feeling" this month. "Feelings" are quite often right. Irrational but right. Let us know as soon as you know. Soooo hoping for you.

    Everyone else. Don't think because I haven't written you a personal note that I'm not thinking of you. Hope you are all well.

    Huhs to you all,
    Debbie

    Hmmmmm .... bowel prep. Must go and find that post. I may be able to answer your question Willow.

    Just popping in to say hello... I'm on my mid-afternoon munch-fest, I get so tired in the afternoons I end up eating and eating and eating, very naughty as it ends up being way too many carbs! I think it's the stress of trying to get reports written and keep kids working when they really don't want to. It's the end of the year, they've done their exams and they know nothing we do now counts - it's so hard to keep behaviour under control!

    I feel a bit like I'm in limbo-land right now... just waiting, waiting, waiting for something to happen. If AF comes soon, I'm going to have to give the clomid a miss, so hopefully I'll have a stupidly long cycle to get me to the holidays, but then AF will come naturally (rather than needing to do provera again!) and I can do a 100mg clomid cycle in peace. DH sees the specialist about his varicocele next week! I can't believe it's come around so soon, it felt like it was going to take forever!

    HI Butterfly,
    I probably would Debbie. Let's hope this is the month for you. GO CLOMID!

    Willow - The bowel prep is pretty wicked. Different places use slight variations but they all make you goo gooo gooo! You will basically poo until it's just clear fluid - gorgeous hey!? Most people get prett crampy - all those muscles of peristalsis getting a work out!
    The good thing is that it's only a bit horrible for a little while and then it's over. I would have someone around who can help with child care as it will be butt on loo for a while!

    Hayseed I wondered how you were going. Fingers crossed for you!

    Michelle - Thought of you and your family as I went to sleep

    Everyone else I am sorry, a bit of a whirlwind stop on my way out.

    Michelle, your posts from yesterday were just beautiful. I read them at work today which was a bit of a mistake cause I ended up in tears! Not a good look. LOL. I hope you are feeling OK today.

    I didn't get a chance to read them last night because after getting home from the hospital I came down with a mystery illness. Temperature, chills, nausea. Not sure what that was about. Seems to have passed for the most part but still very nauseous today. Me thinks perhaps the little pills might be playing a part in that....

    Pollyanna, I really hope your lap went wonderfully today sweetie! I look forward to hearing from you when you are feeling better.

    Thanks for the bowel prep tips girls, lovely stuff isn't it?? I don't mind the sitting on the loo, I just don't want any pain! We'll see how we go, has to be done. Michelle, Deb, I'm thinking it might be a good idea to take my DD to my MIL's for the afternoon if possible. I don't want my MIL here watching her, would rather have a bit of privacy!! LOL.

    BW, glad your DH's appt is fast approaching - will the varicocele be fixed by surgery? Poor thing.

    I HATE surgery, funnily enough. I realised after my hospital appt yesterday that by spending so much time in them over the past 12 months I've developed quite a healthy hospital phobia. Michelle and Deb, I don't know how you do your jobs, you are better women than I, that's all I can say.

    Debbie, sweetie I don't mind you having a chuckle at my expense! If we didn't laugh about these things we'd cry and I think we've probably all done enough of that.
