    Still waiting on my levels to come through but Deb - I am sending you the strongest positive vibes for Egbert. I hope you get to see George today for reassurance. Will be back later to see how you are.

    BW - woooo hoooo on finally getting AF to visit. And now you get to do the clomid. Yay!!!

    BW - congrats on AF arriving. Now you can get on with it all. What days are you taking the clomid? Will it all be over with before you go back to school?

    If I was to go with days 5-9 like my dodgy specialist said, I'd be starting pretty much as I go back to work. So I'm seriously thinking of going 2-6, which means that my last tablet will be taken at night of my first day back (if I can trust my counting at the moment!). Slightly naughty, I know... but with all the stuff going on at work, I'm thinking that keeping as much of it as possible to within the holidays would be a good move. I'll chat to my GP and an OB about it tomorrow before I make my final decision.

    I like the day 2-6 regime but that is just a personal preference

    HCG was 357 which is within the ranges for my dates but a different doctor gave me the results and told me they were low for the dates and sent me into a tailspin I am still recovering from. Stupid woman. So consequently I am upset and worried about the cramping and hoping there will be a fabulous rise when I get stabbed again on Friday.

    However, while typing this my GP called and told me not to worry it was a normal level. She would like it to be higher but we will know more on Friday AND why did I not call her when she gave me her home phone number!!! She is a lovely lady who has been my GP for over 10 years and followed me through the ups and downs. For Sydney, I think it is unusual for your doctor to give out their home phone number and expect you to call it for your blood results but I am very grateful. I think I got the trainee and I would like to personally throttle her RIGHT NOW!!!!!

    So feeling a little better and having a glass of red wine (no lectures - I am working on the anaerobic energy production at this stage and also that the stress levels of the mother is bad for the baby). DH is also back and I am sooooooo happy to have him here supporting me.

    Thanks Willow - I didn't think I would but just to be sure. Maybe you could have one too and join me in a cyber session

    Nah, better not, I had a drink on saturday night (only one!) and am still wondering about that. At the time I thought, bugger it, I'm not prg anyway! hehehe.

    I hope Deb is OK, bit worried about her.

    Many a healthy child has been conceived after a couple of drinks. It is amazing what de-stressing the mother-to-be can do

    Actually, I conceived my angel after a few drinks. I'd even gotten a feint positive on a hpt but convinced myself that I wasn't prg and it was just my cyst giving a false positive!

    No lectures from me either, Michelle. I'm actually a little envious, really. Between my metformin, salazopyrin and anti-depressants I'm completely wasted after half a glass. But it is very important for mummy to be relaxed, so enjoy. Enjoy having your DH back. And I'll personally go throttle that other silly doctor for you!

    I've come to the conclusion that the more time between AF, the more painful they are... I got lectured by my rheumy yesterday for not taking my naprosyn. He'd be very happy to see me dosing up on it today... even if it is just for AF pain and not arthritis pain! Although, I do tend to get arthritis niggles for no apparent reason during AF. I'm still feeling really odd about taking the clomid... I want to get most of it in during the school holidays so 5-9 really doesn't appeal... but I'm really freaking out at the thought of downing the first tablet tomorrow! Hopefully a chat to my GP and going teddy bear shopping with a dear old friend (who is also an OB, so we talk a lot about what I'm going through) will put my mind at ease.

    One more sleep before the big day for Deb... still praying really hard for you, Deb.

    Hi Lovelies,
    I am okay. George was at a "stubborn birth" and didn't phone me until 5pm. By which time I had looked really closely and the yellow is a "clean" yellow and I can't see anything that makes it look like old blood... Believe me my powers of analysing what comes out of my fanny are impressive!!! George said he believes it is just a variation of normal and that estrogen often yellows things up and that he really didn't think it was worth making the 40 minute trip to see him. He reminded me that yellow doesn't equal blood. He said he was happy to wait back for me if I needed but he really thought it was okay. He said that usually if it is anything sinister it reddens up pretty quickly. I know he is right but it really threw me as until then it had been white. Bloody hell I am a mess!!!

    Today is Frank and I know I am gonna just bawl when I see him. I have hardly slept (checking knickers and hoping and praying) and I have myself in a state. I will have the 90 minute drive to the "big smoke" to calm and centre - I will be able to do that but as soon as I get into Franks rooms I know i will be like a caged animal. All of my positive thought seems to have taken a holiday!
    I had a lovely dream last night that I was swimming with Finn in the ocean and there were beautiful fish and lovely white sand... I thought it was a good omen.

    I won't get back until 5.30 or so tonight (apppointment is at 2pm) so I may not be able to post until tomorrow (I will do my best to post tonight but as the kids won't have seen me all day it may be difficult)

    Michelle as you know what the figure does in a few days is what really counts not the initial baseline. I don't think that figure is really an issue - did you get the progesterone level done too? Sweetie I am thinking of you and praying for your little one and you. We will be fine all of us!

    BFW, yay on your period - I began clomid on cd2 also...

    Willow:

    Chelle:

    Hi to everyone else...
    I have to go, I have a big day and I am looking forward to it being over...
    Again, please know just how very much I appreciate your kindness and support. There is so much LOVE in here it's beautiful!

    Hi guys,

    mods feeel free to move in posted incorrectly-

    i started my first cycle of clomid this month I was 20 DPO and was advised by the doc to wait 5 more days fbefore testing. iwas happy to do this rather than see a BFN. i started spotting on tuesday and yesterday passed a clear clot like substance ( covered in blood) about the size of 2 50c pieices. It felt quite strong and was covered in blood.

    i called the doctor and he said to do a preg test- BFn but i know i felt different and i stopped feeling diffferent on monday. i just have to start my new lot of cloimd today.

    Could i have misscarried?? pleae help me girls

    Princess, I wish I could answer your question!

    It's impossible to know, really... the fact that the HPT was BFN would indicate probably not, but it's really scary when you find things coming out of your body that you don't quite recognise.

    What did your specialist advise?

    Michelle, I think tht is a good level, so I dont think you have anything to worry about. Im a HCG freak, so I know what is bad, and that isnt!, well in my book.You enjoy your wine.
    Deb, well by now Im sure you will have seen eggy and you will have the biggest grin on your face! Cant wait to hear.
    Princess, its so hard to know. I hate loosing strange things, because it makes you wonder about all sorts. Hope you can get some answers from specialist.
    Hey BW, how you going? Hard decisions for you, hope your OB friend can help you out.
    Me well cd 28, no signs of anything! so at this stage not sure what to think, I can go to 29 and even sometimes 30, so wont do anything till the weekend if I havnt got AF. Wish I had REALLY sore boobies or something, then I might be thinking about it. Damn the w8, I hate this part more than the 2ww!
    Hey to all others.
