    Hi Leigh,

    Great news about your scan Im so glad everything is going well...im sure you will be just fine, so try and relax (i know, easier said than done!)

    Well, i dont know whats going on....I am due for AF today, but she's not here yet. I havent had any AF symptoms or pg symptoms for that matter! My temp dropped a little today, its usually around 36.8/9 after ov, but today dropped to 36.7 this morning, even though its only a small drop, it usually means AF is going to arrive, literally within hours. But no...not yet!

    Its very strange, I have been ttc for over 2 years and every AF (or post AF) I get very sore bb's, so sore that my bra kills me, but this month, nothing. They have one sore spot, but thats it. I have also had hot flushes continally, never had that before.

    I know how I feel when im pg, and this is def not it, but I also know when im going to get AF and this too is def not this. So i dont know whats going on, its like my body is not doing anthing

    AF must be on her way...how rude, she's not only ugly, painful and messy, now she decides to be late, how inconsiderate!!!!

    Ill keep you posted about what goes on, but I have to say, whatever is happening its definately not pg, after being pg 3 times, i know exactly how I feel, and I dont feel anything like that Oh well, I gave it my best shot (or rather DH did anyway ) cant do much more than that.



    Ill write again tomorrow to let you know whats happening, so log on then hun.

    Speak soon,
    Issy

    Hi Issy, how's things? How did you get on today? Did AF arrive yet? Have you tested? (20 questions ha ha)

    My DH just left to go to work and he took DD with him because he is dropping her at my mum's where she'll stay until Monday. My mum lives an hour and a half away and DH is working in the same town that she lives in tonight so he is staying at her place tonight and tomorrow then driving back home tomorrow arv after my mum finishes work. Feels so weird being home alone. I've never been totally home alone since I had her, she turns 3 next month. I was sad when they left, must be the pregnancy hormones. But I keep telling myself I don't get this opportunity often and to make the most of it. Im going to the hairdresser tomorrow to get my hair done so at least I'll kind've feel good about myself in Brisbane. One of DH's friends just came over and he saw my ultrasound picture on the table. He asked DH if I was pregnant and DH didn't know what to say and said not that I know of. Aaron then said well why does it have yesterdays date on it etc. My DH then came and told me so I confessed to Aaron that I am. He is coming to Brisbane with us and I told him not to tell anyone. He said cool, you can be our designated driver down there. I said no way!!!

    DH just phoned and I could hear DD in the background yelling out hello to me.

    Well hun let me know how you get on!!!

    Hi leigh,
    Well yes AF arrived this morning, full on and quite painful...oh well, we gave it our best shot. And Im pretty sure we have decided to keep ttc now

    We kind of figured that since I had my surgey in oct, i have fallen pg once, and whilst it wasnt meant to be, we were at least able to conceive and really it has taken a few months (since jan) for my body to recover and have normal cycle lengths again. So now that my body has recovered and we have as good a chance at conception as anyone else (first time really since we started ttc a few years ago) we may as well keep going.

    Although we have been ttc for a few years, it really wasnt possible (with my irregular cycles and damage to my uterus and tubes) but now everything is different; im all good and healed from m/c and DH is good to go, so really we have only been ttc (with actually having a chance at it) since nov 07, when AF returned. So really not that long, we may as well keep going.

    So there you have it...you're not getting rid of me yet Here's to a new cycle and a new chance....come on May, bring me some luck!!!!

    By the way, I know its hard to leave your DD behind. The longest I left DS was when me and DH got married and went on our honeymoon, we has to leave him for 8 days...it was hard not seeing him, but we really enjoyed the time to ourselves, it felt like we were dating again. So, see this as a babymoon; time to yourself and DH before life gets a little more crazy with 2 kids, and relax and have fun!!!!

    Speak soon hun,
    Issy

    Hey Issy, Bummer AF arrived but I am so glad you guys have continued to TTC I am sending you lots and lots of hopefully this month will be your month.

    When DH and I got married last year we went on our honeymoon and left DD with my sister. We went on a cruise and were gone for 10 days and had no phone contact at all. I missed her but like you said it was like we were dating again and we enjoyed ourselves.

    One of my friends who is coming to Brisbane doesnt know anyone else but me and DH. She has 2 kids and recently seperated from her husband and is looking forward to a huge weekend. I was worried thinking omg I cant drink with her and hope she wont feel out of place not knowing anyone etc but she just text me saying she has a friend who lives in Brisbane and will be coming out with us. I am relieved now coz they can drink together and hopefully wont notice that I am not drunk. Still havent decided what my excuse is going to be or if I will just pretend to drink.

    Hi Issy,

    How's things going?

    Well my weekend in Brisbane was huge. First of all we had to catch the plane at 5am on Saturday morning. I never got a single wink of sleep on Friday night. I was like a zombie walking around all day shopping on Saturday. Saturday night we had dinner and the boys had a few drinks back at our apartment before going to the casino. Us girls and one of the guys stayed back coz we were tired. I didn't get to sleep unitl 1am though then my brother in law came home drunk from being out and woke me up. Then DH came home drunk at 3am and then I couldn't go back to sleep coz he was snoring. I was then up at 6:30am. Once again Sunday I was like a zombie. All the boys were out for the day so my friend and I hung around the city. I confessed to her that I may be pregnant. So we went to Coles and got a test (I knew it was going to be positive). Anyway once she found out I was pregnant she didn't force me to drink that night. Everyone was drinking except me but I still had a good time. We went out and came home at 3:30 am and had to get up at 6:45am so we could go to the airport. Then when we arrived home DH and I drove an hour and a half to pick up DD. DH worked that night so DH and I stayed at mums til he picked us up at 11pm. Lets just say by Tuesday I was absolutely exhausted. My morning sickness disappeared while in Brisbane so of course I started thinking the worse but for the last 2 days I have been nauseas again. I just hope nothing bad has happened.

    I went to the Dr this morning and I have booked in for my NT scan on Friday 2nd May. I am so nervous about it already. Hope everything will be ok.

    How long until you ovulate? Have you taken clomid again this cycle? I would bd heaps if you can. I ovulated 12 days after I took my last clomid tablet which is later than most people do and later than I had done the previous month so make sure you bd for a few days after you think you have ovulated just to be on the safe side.

    Can you believe I am 10 wks tomorrow already? I have put on 3 kgs already. I am going to be way heavier than what I was when I had DD.

    Take care and chat soon

    Hi Leigh,

    So good to hear from you. Wow that certainly does sound like a huge few days in brissy. Glad to hear you didnt have to find an excuse for not drinking, better to just fess up, I bet it felt nice to share to exciting news with others, I cant wait to tell everyone...one day! Your DH sounds so much like mine, he always snores after drinking and I can never sleep...very frustrating, but of course I love him anyway....earplugs become my best friend on drinking nights

    And by the way, Im sure everything is just fine, its normal for nausea to go on and off. You and your little one will be fine, i just know it You have to post some photos of your scan when you get them (of course if your comfortable with that!) id love to see them.

    As for me, Im due to ov soon I think. Im not on clomid this month, my prescription ran out, so its alnatural this month. I ov on my own anyway, so hopefully it will all be good. I can feel my bfp coming...well, ill just tell myself that anyway!

    And Ill def be bd everyday, have to give it our best shot after all (or dh will anyway )

    Anyway, Ill let you know how I go. I think I might try some opk's this month, havent done it for ages so Ill give them another go, got nothing to lose right????

    Keep me posted on how you go hun, and ill do the same.

    Hey Issy, how's things? Hope you had a great long weekend!!! Did you do anything exciting? Have you ovulated yet? Did you try opk's this month? that you'll get a

    Well I've got my NT scan on Friday. I am soooo nervous coz as you know with both my miscarriages it's been at my 12 scan where they discover no heartbeat. I've got so many negative feelings and have a feeling that I am going to be told there is no heartbeat again. Plus my morning sickness has gone and Im not feeling as tired anymore so of course I am reading them as negative signs as well. Im trying to tell myself that it is common for those symptoms to go away around this time. I am just that everything is ok. I don't know how I will handle having another miscarriage and not sure if I can go through it again. God listen how negative I am. I need to snap out of it. DH keeps telling me no point worrying of something I can't control.

    Take care hun

    Hi Leigh,

    Good to hear from you hun. Im sorry you're feeling anxious about the scan. I completely understand your aprehension though. It must be very daunting. But your DH is right, you cant control whats going to happen, and Im sure everything will be ok .

    Its normal for m/s to go away at this stage and the fact that your not feeling tired anymore is normal too. My fatigue with DS only lasted for about the first 6 weeks, by 12 weeks it was all gone and I never had m/s. Every pg'cy is different. There is no point in telling you to relax as I know that is impossible, but have faith in yourself and remember that strong healthy heartbeat you saw only a couple of weeks ago. You'll be fine hun. Im for you.

    ASM - Im currently in the TWW. I think it cd20 or 21, I cant remember (ill see it when I post this as its on my ticker - I keep losing track). I have tried to be really relaxed about this month and surprisingly I feel I am. I havent temped or charted, taken clomid, checked cm, or anything. I also didnt panick about bd'ing everyday which was much nicer for both DH and myself. I think for the first time in 3 years I feel as if the pressure has been lifted a little. I know it will happen and until then I just have to focus on all the great things I have and all the things im working towards. Im happy to just wait now and I know things will work out ok. Anyway, listen to me...a right little preacher arent I !

    Anyway hun, im sending you all the :goodluck2::goodluck2::goodluck2: in the world for fri. Ill be thinking of you and that everything will be ok. I know it will be

    Keep in touch hun,
    Issy

    Hi Issy,

    How's things? I went for my nuchal test this morning. I was so nervous because I've been having dreams where they've told me there's no heartbeat again. Anyway, everything is fine so far

    I was so happy to see my little bubba moving around on the screen. The fold on the back of the baby's neck measured 1.1 which is great and she worked out my NT results straight away. My number is 1:16841 which I am very, very happy about. They've also bought my due date forward to the 13th of November now but coz I'll have a caesar I'll end up having it earlier. I am still things will continue to run smoothly but I do feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. My sister had her baby on Tuesday and I just took a photo with my phone of one of the photos they gave me at the scan and sent it to her. She is surprised I kept it a secret for so long. So now my mum, my sister and one of my friends know. I am dying to tell more people seeing as I've kept it a secret for so long but I think I might wait a few wks yet.

    How is your TWW going? Are you still feeling relaxed? I am that this will be your month. How exciting would that be!!! I will still be sending you lots of

    Well hun I gota go, take care a I'll talk 2u soon.
    Have a great weekend!!!

    YAY YAY YAY!!!! I knew everything would be ok. Im soooo happy for you hun, I wasnt worried about the scan as I just knew everything was going to be ok, and Im so glad you can relax a bit now and just concentrate on the lovely pg journey ahead of you. How exciting....you're going to have a baby by christmas!!!!!

    I cant wait to follow you through this pg, its a bit amazing that I started chatting to you when you were still trying, and very much frustrated with everyone falling pg around you....(which by the way is still happening to me, but im so much more relaxed about everything now, I have turned a new leaf! ) and now your officially 12 weeks pg, happy and healthy and everything is looking great. Its so wonderful to hear. Hopefully I can join you on the pg front soon, that would be great. Cant wait to join the PAML thread one day instead of the TTC after M&L and TWW threads, not that the women in there arent lovely, they are, but we would all much rather be out of there and into PAML.

    So anyway im still TWW'ing, Im actually due for AF on mothers day...would be lovely if she didnt show wouldnt it...would be the best mothers day present ever

    Oh well, we'll see how we go. Again im so happy for you hun, best news Ive had all week. Take care of yourself and your growing family and Ill speak to you soon.

    for you,

    Issy

    Hey Issy, how's things? Not long now til you're due for AF. Any signs that she is coming? Have you done any early tests?

    I've been shopping all day. Its DD's 3rd birthday next Friday so been buying her presents all day. DH came with me and he hates shopping so I didnt enjoy myself and just rushed with what I bought her, oh well she'll still like what she gets.

    Are you doing anything special for mothers day? DH is working so there's nothing special planned for me. He hasn't even taken DD shopping for anything yet so i'm not sure i'll even get anything.

    Better go, have a great weekend and enjoy mothers day on Sunday. Good luck and hopefully AF wont show up!!!

    Hi Issy,

    How's things? Hope you are well!!! I see by your ticker that nasty AF arrived, I am so sorry. I know what it's like to try and try and try and get a month after month. I'm that this will be your month.

    I just thought about mentioning some tablets that DH and I were taking the month I fell pregnant. A girl at work put me on to them and hey maybe that's what worked for me.
    The tablets are called Maca Power and you can get them from any health food shop. They are in a white bottle with orange label and black lid. They help fertility and lots of other things as well. Give them a try and hopefully you'll have some luck. I was on clomid as well and I think I waited til after I finished my 5 clomid tablets before I started taking the Maca Power but DH took them everyday for the month (well that's when he didn't forget). It's worth a shot though.

    How was your Mothers day? Hope you had a nice day. It's my DD's 3rd b'day tomorrow, can't believe she is 3 already, goes so quick doesn't it.

    Better go and cook dinner.
    Take care hun and chat soon coming your way!!!

    Hi Leigh,

    Great to hear from you, sorry its taken me a while to get back to you, I have been a bit snowed under with work at the moment...yuk.

    Yes, AF arrived early for me this month, only 2 days early but early none the less. I guess I shoud be grateful as I would like my cycles to be closer to 28 days, rather than 33 days,...33 days is such as long time to wait

    Thanks for the info on maca powder, I have actually heard of it just recently, someone in the TTCAML thread mentioned Im pretty sure, I have no idea what it is, but Im def going to give it a try. Got nothing to lose right? I am willing to try anything. I actually have a feeling that my bfp's is just around the corner....well, I can dream cant I? Got to stay positive, only way to go I reckon. Ill let you know how I go with the powder...off to the health food store tomorrow for me!

    Ohhhh, your DD is turning 3....I love 3, its the cutest age, a bit testing at times, and very cheeky moments, but so lovely, you start to really see their personality at this age and they are soooo cute! Hope the b'day is a lovely day for you all. Have you told DD that she is going to be a big sister, or is she too little to understand yet?

    How are going with everything now? Hope your m/s has gone for good, and you are enjoying the second trimester...I really liked the 2nd t/m, it was just so nice not to feel so tired and sick all the time. Its the best 3 months out of the 9 I reckon.

    Well hun, take care and Ill let you know how I go with the maca powder

    Hi Issy,

    How's things going? Hope you're well. Did u end up getting the Maca? I'm it will work for you. Get your DH to take it too. My DH hates taking tablets so he only took 2 a day I think but I was taking 3 a day. You can also get it in the powder but I got the tablets coz they are way easier to take.

    Surely this has to be your month for it's so annoying how some girls just have to look at their partners and fall pregnant. Very frustrating for girls like us who take forever. Although I'm sure you said you were like me and fell preg without trying and straight away with your DS as I did with my DD. I honestly thought coz it happend so easily then that it would be a breeze falling pregnant again, boy was I wrong!!!

    I've got my first midwife appointment on Monday, and everything will be ok. I still haven't told many people I am pregnant. I am still so scared to tell people, I am dying to tell them though. I reckon I'll be scared whether I tell them now or in a months time. People probably have guessed by now anyway.

    I've got a hens night to go to next Sat night. It's a pub crawl, dunno who I will hide not drinking from everyone coz usually I'd be drinking heaps.

    I see you are CD 14, have you o'd yet? for when you do.

    Sending you lots of not that you'll need it coz this is the month you're going to fall pregnant!!!

    take care and talk 2u soon

    Hi Issy,

    How's things going? I hope you are well. I see you are on CD33, have you caved and done any hpt's? I'm you get a because you deserve it!!! Did you end up getting the Maca? Maybe you'll be pregnant and maybe you've got the Maca to thank, I reckon it helped me, I tried for 23 months and it was on the 23rd month that I took it and fell pregnant so you never know but I reckon it helped.

    I go for my scan on the 30th of June and we'll most likely find out the sex. Still seems so far away. I am 18 wks tomorrow can you believe? It's going quick but I am huge already so I'd hate to see what I am like in another 20 wks, oh well I don't mind as long as my bub is healthy.

    DD and I might be flying to Melbourne next week for about 10 days to visit my sister. She had her 2nd child on the 29th of April so I am dying to meet my little niece and to catch up with everyone.

    Better go.
    Take care hun and chat soon

    Hi leigh,

    It sooo good to hear from you, im so glad everything is going so well for you. I cant believe you are nearly 18wks...thats amazing. Your scan is so close, I cant wait to hear what sex bubs is...just quietly, I have a feeling its a girl

    And congratulations on the arrival of your niece How lovely that you and DD get to take a trip to Melb to meet her, its so exciting when new babies arrive, we certainly have had quite a few this year, its been lovely.

    Sorry its taken so long for me to get back to you, I have been posting in ttcaml but have been a bit slack in their too, very busy with work but its all slowing down now, so I have more time up my sleeve.

    AFM - Well, I caved this morning and POAS, and it was a .....but, it was a light one, and my experience with light bfp's have all ended in m/c so im not getting too excited at the moment, as I fear this one will end the same way. I know its early, AF was due today, but I have to be cautious, just to protect myself I think. I that im wrong and that everything will be ok but ill just wait and see. If I dont get AF in the next few days, ill POAS again and see what it says. Ill keep you posted on that one, I hope I can come back and give you some good news
    I didnt use the maca powder this month, by the time I went to buy it I was already on cd12 so I thought I would just wait until next month. I hope there wont be a next month for another 9 months IYKWIM! We shall see....

    Well, thats it for now, Ill write again in a few days and let you know how I go. Thankyou so much for thinking of me hun, huge for you and your big growing belly...how gorgeous!

    Hi Issy,

    Congratulations on getting your that's fantastic news. I do understand how you are feeling though, worrying about things going wrong etc. I have everything for you and I am everything turns out ok. Please let me know how you go when you do another hpt. I am so excited. I know how hard you've been trying for another bub so you really deserve this little one to stick!!!

    I am still very cautious about my pregnancy. Everytime I tell someone I sit there and think god I hope I'm not jinxing myself. Did I tell you I bought a fetal heart doppler? I listen to the heartbeat everyday so it is very reassuring.

    I'm glad you said you think I am having a girl. I initially thought I was having a boy but in the last week I've kind've changed my mind and think I am having a girl. The gold wedding ring test keeps predicting a girl and they say that babies with a higher heart rate of about 140 - 160 bpm is a girl and my bub's heart rate is always in that category. Also a few people have said to me that maybe I can only carry girls and that everytime I've miscarried they may have been boys. Who knows though, I guess I'll find out in a couple of weeks, that's if bub's legs arent closed.

    Well I'd better go, please keep in touch and let me know how you get on. I will be thinking of you!!!

    Hi Issy,

    Just sending you lots of

    Have you tested again? I am everything works out for you!!! Have you gone to the dr for any blood tests or anything? I know when I first found out I was pregnant with this baby I was really scared to rush off to the dr. Think I waited a week to go. Try and remain positive.

    Take care hun and I am looking forward to hearing from you
    :goodluck2:
