    Hi everyone - hope everyone had a nice weekend!

    First of all, issy - CONGRATULATIONS hun (no more being quiet about it!!!) WOOHOO!!!!! rest up!!

    tina - honey - big hugs!!!

    betty - the very best of luck to you honey!!
    mollycat - hope ur well sweet!! i hope u don't mind i've started the housewarming party early for you - couldn't wait to get my mitts onto that cyber champagne!!! hope it's going ok.
    lj - hope u get well soon sweet - u must be so wrecked!
    jen - honey - i LOVE ur big fat red line - go u good thing!! u know, i was quite interested to see that ur temps were in celsius and not fahrenheit, which i thought was the go in the states. thanks for mentioning my milestone - did you mean 8 weeks? i didn't even realise it myself - just been so focussed on how many days to next ob appt (2) and how many days to next scan (16).
    jodsan - i'm so sorry for not keeping up but why was it that u thought it was to do with ur lh that implantation didn't occur? r u sure that fertilisation occurred? it seems really odd that with a level of under 1 that that would affect anything. Sorry again for asking the questions but i am really interested.
    pbstar - hey honey - hope ur doin ok.
    sandygirl - oh boo that whole "bridesmaid being due the same day as you would have been" thing. i feel for you cos that has got to be rough. when is the wedding?
    krystielove - i truly hope you get better really quickly. there seems to be a lot of stuff going around the western suburbs - my little gang seems to be getting one thing after another. take care of urself sweet!
    nickster - so great to hear from you - wow 21 weeks already - bless ya hun - continued health and happiness for you!!
    smilanatu - hoping u have some good news for us!!
    hello to toccara, vanaithi, bday buddy, katiegirl (belly rubs!!), mmteacher (all the best sweet - gL!!) and anyone else i have missed!!

    all ok here - just will be a whole lot happier in 16 sleeps time when i can see my baby on the scan and know that all is ok.

    You know you're addicted to BB when:

    1. You sign a 2-year contract and pay $60 more per month just to have wireless internet service for a 5 day camping trip! lol...

    2. Your significant other walks in on you checking the position of your cervix, and actually gets turned on from it!

    3. You resort to becoming an adult film industry advocate!

    4. You read, post, and then refresh to read again in case you missed a post while posting!

    5. You dream of being the first to post in the new thread!

    6. You feel like you are wasting urine when you don't pee on a stick!

    7. You see abbreviations in everyday life and try to work out what they mean in the TTC world (eg. DVD must stand for something like "Doing the vjay vjay dance"...)

    8. When you get excited about choosing a new ticker....oh the choices!!!!!

    9. You actually think in emoticons and abbreviations...and occasionally call your husband DH....and he says, "what the hell did you call me????".

    10. And the biggest one of all....DH actually asks if it was a light or dark "BFP" (not positive test) and whether or not you used "FMU" to test!!!! (all in abbreviations...)

    11. When getting a coverline makes you so happy, you feel as though you won the lottery!

    12. When you look forward to going to bed just so you can wake up in the morning and add a new temp!

    13. You say you are taking a break from bb and then spend 24 hours trying to do anything but log on, including cleaning, washing, ironing, shopping, all the while saying to yourself don't do it don't do it don't do it before finally breaking down and getting your bb fix...

    14. You drag yourself out of bed at 6 am every morning even though you're still tired, just to have "quiet alone time" on BB while the kids are still sleeping!

    15. You get the butterflies while logging on to read posts!

    16. You keep your computer on all day long so you know as soon as someone has made a post!

    17. You know you are addicted to BB when you go to put the date on something and you end up writing 9 DPO!



    Looking great so far! Let me know if you think of any and I'll add them to the list! Still hoping this is ok with the mods!

    issy--Yay for confirmation of BFP!!! Congratulations! Hey, the best rollercoasters are the ones that are the bumpiest with the most ups and downs, the biggest drops and falls, so don't worry for a minute about bringing us on this ride! It's well worth it, and we all want to be on that ride with you! I'm super happy for you issy! Now go get that BT!!!



    sandygirl--Glad to hear from you again! you get that BFP before the wedding! Brown spotting is usually due to old blood, so probably just your body doing spring cleaning, getting itself ready and refreshed for your next cycle. I hope you feel like you belong to this thread--I would hate to think that someone didn't feel accepted! You're definitely at the right place for support and understanding, and some good laughs on occasion! Sending big


    Krystie-- Awww, sorry to hear your sick! Hope you feel better soon! Thanks for the follow-up with my chart! lol... you would think those red lines were a BFP with the way I carried on!


    jenushka--Would you please tell your doc that July 16 is way too far away--we just can't handle waiting that long! lol... j/k they get a cancellation so you can get in there sooner!


    bettyboop--Glad you finally got some answers--and hopefully the solution! Hope the clomid works its wonders without the side effects! Sending lots of :goodluck2:


    mollycat--A crystal ball would definitely be helpful right about now! I hate making tough decisions, have you decided yet what you're going to do? Good luck, hun!


    laura133--Thanks for the good luck! Congrats on being pg!!


    plc--Once I realized that most of the charts were in celsius, I just went ahead and changed mine. Figured since most of you used celsius, it would be easier for you to read that way. Plus, the dips seemed bigger in F, so I wanted to make it seem less erratic! the truth comes out... Oh, the milestone I was referring to was that this is the furthest along you've been according to your sig, (well, obviously, not counting your DS!). You made it past the 7 1/2 wk. milestone as well as the 9 wk. milestone from your previous pg'ies. That's a big deal, so congrats again! I'm glad you didn't even realize it, that means your beginning to relax and enjoy being pg without stressing so much over what "could" happen. Can't wait to hear about your next scan!


    AFM... Still happy with my coverline! Today we're taking the kids to Hurricane Harbor--it's a waterslide park that's right next to Magic Mountain. We bought season passes for the whole family to M.Mountain, and with the passes we each got a free pass to H.Harbor, so that's what we're doing today for Father's day! Is it Father's day in Aussie, as well--or I guess I should say was it yesterday? Will be back later to check on you all, hope you all have a great day! Here's some and for the new thread!

    Hi ladies,

    I just wanted to drop by and let you know that my IUI on Friday went really well. But I've been laying low since then because I came down with a cold the night before it I wish DD would share the things you want her to share and not the things that you don't! LOL So I'm in the TWW now, AF due on the 27th and just hoping that being sick will not affect our chances.

    Anyway, sorry for no personals. I hope everyone is doing well and I'll be back for persies in the next couple of days when I'm hopefully feeling a bit better.

    Bye for now!

    Thankyou for all your support ladies as I struggled over the last week....

    It is over though, AF turned up this morning, as I expected. I never really could acknowledge the fact that I may have been pg, I was so detached from it all. And I actually dont feel so bad. Ill just keep trying....it has to be a sticky one soon right???? I never thought it would turn out to be ok anyway, even with the dark line, as I could feel my body was getting ready for AF, I just know my body toooooo well.

    Ok ladies take care,
    Wishing everyone loads and loads of GL in this thread....I want to see many many BFP's announced this month.....C'mon ladies, we can do it!!!!!

    Issy

    Oh Issy, I'm so sorry sweety It's amazing how we just "know" isn't it. I'm sure there will be a sticky one coming your way soon. Have you had your hormones levels checked to see if there is a problem with implantation?

    Plc
    - Yeah, I dont really get it. The doctor said to me that my LH level was less than 1. Apparently LH assists with implantation in the luteal phase, so even though my progesterone is ok, implantation could be failing bc of not enough LH. I have never heard anything about this before in the luteal phase. I am absolutely positive that I conceived and I felt implantation last Sunday (it is unmistakable),then by about Weds I was getting worried about it. I just knew it hadn't taken again. This is the 4th time in 8 months of TTC that I have felt implantation and it hasn't taken. I guess I will go along to the FS and see what she says. The only other thing I think it could be is something to do with my autoantibodies (cos I have autoimmune diseases in my family) OR because I only have one kidney and it has been straining a bit for the past year. I remember you mentioning your SIL had troubles with conceiving bc of her kidney problems. Do you mind if I ask what troubles she had? The dr didn't really want to answer any questions and just said I really have to go to a specialist now. Cant really afford a FS right now bc I'm not working so I am trying to work out as much as I can by just asking the ladies on here. Very frustrating

    Megsmum - Reallu hope IUI went well.

    issy- i am so sorry to hear what has happened, i really thought things would work out for you and i was so shocked and sad to hear AF has arrived. you sound so strong and positive and as always you inspire me to keep my chin up and keep going on this journey. i am sure your time will come soon (remember it's just around the corner...)if you need to cry and vent you know where to come, we are all here for you.

    jodsan- wish i could help you out with info but i can't sorry. just wanted you to know i am thinking of you and wish this journey could be a little (or a lot) easier on you

    megsmum- saying lots of for you, hope this TWW ends with some good news for you

    Issy so sorry that AF had to show her head (she's been around too much in the last week)

    Megsmum - good luck with your TWW

    AFM - I've decided to give the tamoxifen another try (hopefully the side effects won't be too bad)

    hello ladies, sorry i didnt post anything sunday as promised - was too tired after the trip - got home late...

    jodsan: sorry to hear about your bad news its hard enough to conceive as it is, and then to have implantation probs as well - im praying that you find a good fs and have a healthy sticky bub in no time!

    issy: its not fair that af symptoms can be just like early pg! i thought i was pg too last month, then had af come round & so i must have o'd late. do you think you might have o'd later than you thought as well? well i hope af's stay is short & then you will get a BFP soon!

    jen: that list is great! im glad you started it! i can relate to pretty all of them - especially the one of looking forward to sleeping to add another temp to the chart! congrats on getting a coverline! you'll have a BFP this time!

    HELLO to everyone else! there are just too many here & im not as good as jen when it comes to remembering everyone's names! but rest assured im thinking of all of you & praying that everybody gets a BFP in their belly very very soon! & to our pg gals: GOODLUCK

    afm: tassie was very nice & relaxing... except on satday evening when we decided to climb a mountain... it was the hardest climb of my life! but the view was worth it in the end. much like ttcing! we went to freycinet - highly recommend!

    now im just waiting for signs of implantation... my belly feels warm & then sometimes cold & numb. is that good or bad? cant wait til tomorrow morning to see the magic numbers!

    Thanks guys, I really am doing ok...surprisingly!

    Jodsan - I will def contact my FS this week, and see if there is any tests he can do to see if there is a problem. Im sure there is, so it would be could to get it sorted!

    pbstar - How weird is it that after your long cycle and my chem pg, we both ended up 1 cd apart again? We are cycle buddies again - and yes you're right.....just around the corner hun, it has to be!!!!!

    mollycat - looks like your cycling with us too - at least we have eachother to get through this month.... that it ends in a BFP for all of us!!!!

    Vanaithi - I wish I had just ov late therefore making af late, but with 3 bfp's im pretty sure I had a chem pg. Something was happening, but didnt make it!

    AFM - AF is very painful, not more so than other months, but horrible all the same. I think there is something not good going on as since my d&c, I have had excrutiating af pains for the first few days, not cramping but stabbing pains that make me double over. I hope FS can get to the bottom of it and stop these chem pg that seem to be happening every 6 months

    Ill bbl for more persies....sorry, have been a bit slack there

    Issy

    Hi everyone. Have not managed a post in a few days, but have been keeping an eye on you all and have been trying to send some really positive vibes!

    Megsmum- that was kind of you to tell me about your scan, follicles, ovaries, etc. I ended up caving and ringing the radiologist about there being follicles in just one side. I did not get to speak to the guy who wrote my report, but another radiologist was great to answer my questions. He said "usually you would see follicles growing on both sides (on Day 9), but it is not unusual not to". Hmmmmm...... Good thing to lay low after your IUI (stay in there!) sending you lots of

    Betty Boop
    - Glad your appointment was helpful and I hope your new treatment helps you.

    Jen - CONGRATS on your first official coverline Your body is totally reactivated. Temping is addictive, eh?? Love your "addicted to BB" lines - you are quite a character and made me giggle I am trying very hard to come up with something equally as witty. Not Father's Day here but your day out sounds like heaps of fun!

    Acria - good luck with trying this cycle!

    Jodsan
    - that is great you are completing your studies. I took off a year before uni and a year in the middle of it all. It took so much motivation to return, but I was so glad I saw it through! I was a lot younger and had did not have DD, so triple-points to you hon' - completing it will be such an achievement!! I am sorry about your disappointing bloodtest results. they the results give you some much needed answers

    AJC - I am so glad your scan went well. I was thinking of you that day

    Jenushka - thanks for the TTC tips. Sending you some very special

    Krystielove - you are a classic! It has got to the point where I must be peeing for some reason other than emptying my bladder. I totally get it (lol)

    Vanaithi - interesting signs. Did you have signs like that before? I am on 5dpo so I will be keeping an eye on you!

    Angelbabies - if you are out there - your comment about the ladies on this thread who have progressed to having lovely swellling bellies is great encouragement. Thank you

    Sandigirl - I think if it is just after your first AF and it is brown (old) that it is just your body settling down. If it is fresh (red) then do talk to your GP/FS (this is what is happening to me).

    Issy, Jodsan, PBStar, Mollycat - truly, truly sorry to all you girls about AF. I know you are very disappointed and frustrated.

    AFM - BD'ed our little hearts out this month. We've given it our absolute best shot. I now have a silly headcold and hope the antibodies don't hamper our efforts. We'll wait and see. More MC-related BT on day 22 tomorrow, but not expecting to find anything. It is more insurance for our next PG (WHICH WILL HAPPEN!!!) I have decided to use some purple in my posts because it is believed to be a powerful and magical colour. Here's spreading some cybermagic!

    Take care everyone x
