    So happy to see you back Debbie!!! It is a good thing they found nothing - you will be joining me in no time I am sure. Was the procedure as scary as you thought? I hope not. Did your specialist indicate when you would likely next ovulate?

    Take care Debbie and again so glad things are good.

    Willow how are things?

    Well, I am a bit toey - my next obs visit and quick u/s next Tuesday - 2 more sleeps! I just get so tense and stressed for a few days beforehand. Send some positive thoughts for me. My nuchal fold is the following week (Thursday the 12th) so the stress factor is going to be high for the coming fortnight!



    Michelle - this time next week we will know if this is YOUR month!
    I hope you all are having a happy weekend.

    Big to you all!

    Hey Deb, I'm just plodding along waiting to ovulate....I can imagine how you are feeling in anticipation of your appointments. I will again keep you and Egbert in my thoughts and prayers - but have to say, I don't think you're gonna need it! You guys are gonna be just fine!

    I have a very strong sense that again this isn't going to be my month. I cannot explain why, it's just a strong feeling that I have. And the strangest part is that I feel almost 'at peace' about it. I haven't felt that way for a very long time.

    I am sure this will all change in two weeks time when the huge crash of disappointment and failure drag me down again but at the moment I am at peace with it all.

    Michelle, how are you surviving the tww?? I was reading about you and your DH having a bit of a cry the other night and how he is feeling about taking a break from it all. I really, really hope you get to take an 8 month break for all the right reasons!!

    Thinking of you all a lot....

    Awww thanks Willow. DH is feeling a little helpless at the moment. He is medical too and not being able to *fix* things makes it even harder for him. Also, Caitlyn's birthday is fast approaching and we are reliving some of the sweet moments leading up to that time (like the first kick he felt etc). I am doing OK in the TWW - I actually have a feeling of peace at the moment (but like you we'll see how long that lasts for )

    So Deb - we will see in about 5 days or so if this month is positive or the indication for a change in course. You on the other hand are going to have a wonderful u/s on Tuesday and you NT will show a child as perfect as the ones you already have.

    Debbie - good to see you floating through. I hope things are going well for you.

    Thanks to you both. I am feeling better today, still got butterflies in my belly about tomorrow though...
    Michelle, I didn't know that you were planning on taking a break. I have all my thoughts and prayers focused on a BFP for you this week...
    Willow - vibes for you!
    Have a great day

    Deb - not a break as such. We have reached the 6 months on clomid and OB doesn't want us extending beyond that without a break. We know it works but with a 25% chance of conceiving per cycle and not having done so I need to let my endometrium recover and CM return to normal. I could start back on it again but I am thinking we will investigate the IVF path or at least get their opinion.

    However, DH and I have decided that we won't do anything until the new year so ... a break of sorts. We will still be DTD around the time of ovulation and I will have day 21 progesterone levels to check if ovulation on my own is effective but it will be a period where I am sans drugs.

    Hopefully, it won't be needed

    Deb - thinking of you tomorrow but am sure everything will be just fine. You were right, surgery not as scary as first thought. By the time I was in there I was really at ease, although I guess by that time I had to be as there was no going back once the needle is in!! Checked in at 9.00am and procedure took place at about 10.45. I was home again by 2.30pm. No pain at all apart from dull ache in my shoulder (from gas used for Lap.) which lasted a couple of days. Bleeding from Hysteroscopy stopped by Friday (op was done Monday) and as I was on day 3 of AF when I had op. done it was just like the tail end of my period. I expect ovulation to be taking place pretty much as normal (day 15/16 - day 10 today) but I would prefer it to wait until day 18/19. I know some of you think early "O" is better but I have only ever fallen pregnant when I have "O" around day 18 or 19. Can't include my first son as I had absolutely no idea when I "O" or how long my cycles were back then. Oh for the days of blissful ignorance!
    Anyway, we shall see. Specialist app. again on 12 Oct. so that date will be a nervous one for us both Deb.

    Michelle - sure things will work out just fine for you. It always does when you least expect it.

    Willow - keep us informed and I am sure we will be hearing some good news in the not too distant future.

    Positive vibes for us all and of course, a big hug for each one of you.
    Love Debbie

    Hey Debbie, thanks for filling us in on your procedure, it's something my gyno has mentioned as a future possibility so glad to hear it was OK and not like the lap I had in May!

    12th October...funny how things work out, that's my angel's EDD date.....

    As for me, I'm yet to get a positive OPK which is unusual for me and is starting to stress me out. I am pretty sure my gyn has worked my days out wrong (posted about it earlier, he had cd1 as the day heavy spotting started but I don't usually count cd1 till I have 'proper' af type bleeding, sorry - tmi) so I might not o for another 3 days or so. I thought since I started clomid earlier this cycle that I'd o earlier or at least on time, nup, not me! Grrrrr....so over it all....

    Michelle, I've been thinking about talking to my DH about doing the same - just taking a break from AC until the new year (after all it's really only a few months). Maybe a fresh start is what we'll need. I am going to see this cycle out and have my appt with the FS and see what he has to say before I make any decisions about what the next step is for us.

    Debbie, thanks for the update. I am really happy that it was as stressfree as possible. I will be sending lots of positive vibes I can muster for conception for you this month. It looks like the 12th is a big one for both of us. I just need to get through tomorrow. I know it may sound really silly to some people but I have been feeling so positive and now all of a sudden it has hit me that I am almost through the first trimester (by my obs I am 11 weeks tomorrow) and then we begin with the twice weekly visits to check that Eggbert is still growing and alive. I have fallen in a bit of a heap today - simply because I have made the mistake of looking too far ahead instead of doing things day by day as I have been. I am praying with all my heart that Eggy is alive and well. Then comes next week with the nuchal scan - I am 39 so it's a little scary. I am a contradiction in terms because I then bounce back and say - this little Eggy is perfectly fine and will grow and be born hollering! However, the other side of me has the memories of my last two babies dead on the screen. I know you understand and I really am sorry for my wail. I am gonna be fine just bring on 10.15 tomorrow!

    Thanks for coming in Debbie - I have missed your company.

    I hope that you get that positive opk soon Willow - I am here barracking for you too!

    to all of you...

    Deb - you know you are still feeling those wonderful little tickles a little moving foetus can give. You know you still have symptoms. However, I completely understand the fear of that blank screen. At 11am tomorrow you will be a relieved mummy with a glowing report on Eggbert.

    Deb, just wanted to say again good luck for tomorrow, we'll all be thinking of you and waiting to hear your good news!

    I totally understand how you must feel because I imagine I will feel very much the same way, I'm sure we all will.

    OPK tonight much darker (but still not a positive) and have noticed some o type pains so maybe tomorrow....

    So Willow - you little forum surfer I *see* you are still floating around. How are you feeling tonight??

    I have been a little flat (shouldn't have gone shopping for clothes - depressing job that is ) and fearing the worst for the end of the week. Not convinced it will be positive and feeling sad for what that will mean. Your O signs are looking positive so get thee to the bedroom (not here!!!!) and get some spermie mobilised to catch that sneaky egg.

    I'll chat to you tomorrow - either here or where I find you floating.

    And Deb - I'll be back tomorrow to check out your fabulous results. Don't keep us in suspense for too long

    Hehehehe, morning Michelle! I was hanging around a bit on BB last night! Went to bed but got back up, couldn't work out for the life of me why I couldn't sleep - then I remembered I had a coffee after dinner with my MIL - bad move for me. Even the weakest coffee makes it hard for me to sleep so I never usually drink it.

    I am feeling OK at the moment but if I don't get a positive opk today I'll be stressed out. Have been bding every second day just in case so have my bases pretty covered but still like to see that opk.

    God I HATE shopping for clothes a lot of the time - especially for jeans and dresses. I'm not a dress kinda gal and a lot of styles don't suit me. Just endured a marathon shopping expedition over the last few weeks trying to find a frock for my brother's wedding. Found one but still not convinced! It can be depressing.

    I'll chat to you here later today - I very rarely venture out of our neighbourhood!

    Girls, thanks for all the good wishes.

    Deb - how did you go? Hope you had some lovely visions of Egbert and that you are feeling a lot calmer now. Casn understand your apprhension about the nuchal test. I only had one with Matthew and the twins. Didn't bother after that as I found them too stressful. There can be quite a lot of negative scan outcomes particularly in the over 35 age group which can lead to a lot of agony and decisions about CVS or amnio. For Chloe, Grace and Luke I chose to go straight to the amnio. Funny thing is, after saying all of that, I'm not sure what would do next time. Hopefully it won't be too long until I find out.

    All the best to you all,
    Debbie

    Hello Gorgeous Women,
    Eggbert is alive, heart beating strongly and regularly, lots of movement - couldn't be better according to George. He measured Eggy at 11weeks and 2 days and believes my EDD is 22/04. I felt much calmer this morning. Lots of meditating and I popped in and had some acupuncture before my trip to the coast and I felt quite okay. My bp was 120/80 - before my last u/s it was 156/100 - so I guess I am doing better!

    Thankyou all - I just love the support you have given me - I am so grateful for you all.

    Willow - you go and get jiggy with it woman! vibes for you!

    Deb - the news about Egbert is fabulous. Well done to both of you!!!!

    Willow - I hope you made the most of that positive OPK last night.

    Debbie - how are you doing??

    Me - well lots of CM yesterday but today I have cramping that feels like AF is going to arrive sooner that expected. Hoping that it won't but not holding my breath IYKWIM. So now I am a little sad that this cycle may not work either. Oh well. Looks like I am heading towards the break I never wanted.
