    Megsmum - welcome, but so sorry to hear about your losses. I am new here too, but everyone has been incredibly supportive!

    Sarah - So sorry about AF arriving, it's not fair

    Sharon - Your friend said the perfect thing to...I wish some of mine were like that...don't get me wrong, I have some wonderfully supportive friends, but a definate few that are more interested in themselves for sure! A simple sorry to hear your news would be suffice.

    Herbie - Congratulations on quitting smoking!!! In a few months you'll feel so much better and wonder why you did it! DH and I quit just over 2 years ago..don't know why we didn't do it sooner now! Well done! I'm sorry about your psychic reading too. I don't know why I'm so worked up about it now, desperate, I guess for some reassurance...but probably not the right avenue for it.

    Bun - just sending you some hugs! I'm glad dinner was OK..maybe it will just take a little time to heal. Your emotions are understandable and I hope with all my heart, you do have that babe in arms sometime very soon.

    Leyla - hope we are hearing some good news for you soon...17dpo, you must be getting a bit curious now too.

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful easter break so far!

    Morning girls,

    I hope you are all having a lovely easter.

    SP - haven't heard from you in a while. Hopefully you are having a great holiday and are too busy to waste time on a PC!

    satya - I am trying to think positively, but it is just so damn hard some days! You are right - these days most women will end up with children, and I am trying to look at it that way - it may take longer than for some people, but in the end, it will work out. How are you going? I hope you are enjoying easter with your step-daughter.

    Shan - how are you going? I hope you are having a good easter.

    Sarah - sorry to hear about AF arriving. This is such an awful process sometimes, but I always try to look at AF's arrival as the beginning of a new cycle. So onwward and upward!!

    Jen- I think we have all had problems with our DHs and BDing. It is sooooo frustrating!! If only they could understand that there is only a small window of opportunity each month and you can't waste it!

    Bek -I hope you are doing well. I agree with the relaxation stuff and will try to do what you have suggested. It certainly can't hurt, and it could help. I have felt v stressed lately which can't be good for my body.

    Hi megsmum - welcome, hopefully we can help you at this time. I have already replied to your other post and pretty much said everything I wanted to say. I hope your stay here is short and sweet!

    Leyla - have you tested again?

    Hi Herbie, las, Alex, Sharon and anyone else I have missed.

    I have been having a nice relaxing easter break so far and am feeling quite happy which is a nice change! I am thinking that it just HAS TO work out in the end - I may have to go through a pretty awful journey to get the family that I want, but ultimately it HAS TO work! I have a great specialist, so far all the tests have shown we are in excellent health, the only couple of remaining tests to be done can be easily treated if a problem is found, and all we have to do is perservere! I am def not stopping trying anytime in the near future, so eventually, we will make it! I have an appointment with my specialist on the 19th and will arrange for the last couple of tests, and hopefully he can do something for me. I have been feeling v angry with him for letting me go through this again when I asked him to help me last time, and he said it is probably just bad luck and to try again. I know medically, he did the right thing, but I have harboured all this anger towards him for putting me through this rather than doing something to help me, but I am now accepting that there is nothing he could have done as he hasn't found anything to treat. Hopefully the remaining tests or the cycle tracking will show something he can treat me for, or we will just find that we have been EXTREMELY unlucky and there is nothing wrong, and we will be on our way to a happy family in no time.

    Sorry, I sound like a freak, I am just trying to see things positively and move on atm. Anyway, I hope you are all munching on yummy easter eggs and having a great easter break!

    Love you all,

    Bun xx

    Well.. poo. AF showed her ugly face today. Feeling very down. I had to go to a big family easter thing today and face all the 'when are you guys going to have kids?' questions. Was very hard not to break down as no-one in the family knows about the misscarriage or that we have been TTC for nearly a year now, and I did not want to give anything away.

    Not quite sure what is going on as I got to 19DPO this time and I usually have a 16 day LP. Having those horrible morbid thoughts that I will never be able to concieve and have something terribly wrong with me. But know that I usually end up feeling all optomistic in a few more days. Just wish it did not have to be so hard.

    Sarah - sorry to hear that the witch showed up for you as well. Maybe we will both have better luck this month.

    Bun - glad to hear that you are feeling a little better. Hope things keep improving for you and you get your BFP really, really soon.

    Salt - good luck with the BD'ing. Hope everything goes well this month.

    Sorry to everyone else, I hope things are going well, but I have not been reading all the posts due to staying with family for the last few days and I'm a little lost on where everyone is at!!

    I have spent quite a bit of time playing with my lovely 6 week old nephew who is such a sweetie. Made me really really really want to get preg asap. I am praying so hard that it will happen this month. Hope that it happens for all you lovely ladies too!

    love

    megsmum so sorry to hear about your losses and I hope that you get another sticky bfp very soon.
    Heybacko I found that a few days after my D&C I started to feel pretty OK but then seemed to take a step back which I think is something that is totally normal and we all move on and adjust at different times so don't rush yourself.
    sarah066 bugger about AF arriving :hugs:
    *las* I know what you mean about friends only being interested in themselves, I told one of my closest friends the other day about ME wanting to do a little goodbye ceremony for my angel and she started saying "yeah, WE have to do something don't we" I then told her that it was something I wanted to do on my own but she was then still saying that WE still have to do something together, now correct me if i'm wrong, but I was the one who was pg and then miscarried not HER (sigh)I know she meant well, but...
    Bun you don't sound like a freak honey :hugs: and I am glad that you are feeling a little more positive about things today, chin up, and it will happen for you.
    janeo the TWW is enough to do anyone's head in 5 more days to go, I like the look of your 10 day temp dip
    saltprincess nice to see you back, hope you had a great relaxing time. The TWW is driving me insane, I soooooooooooo want to test already but know I will just be wasting those LC pg tests, although, they are nice and cheap so it isn't like i'd be wasting a lot of money LOL. Glad to hear that DH is geared up and ready for the BD'ing to commence, good luck catching your eggie, it would be so nice to be BB again, and have them stick.
    Leyla it must have been so hard to hold it together with family asking about when you are going to have children, I hope that you manage to catch your egg this month and get another bfp.

    As for me, I am 7 dpo and already I am so tempted to test, I have 5 LC pg test dip stick style ones, but I do still have a few LC OPK's so may try and feed my PIAC addiction by testing with them in morning, just for the hell of it and to see if they can be used as a HPT. Hope everyone is enjoying heaps of chocolate, I have managed to restrain myself most of the day (we have been out all day though LOL) and haven't eaten that much. Talk to you all tomorrow. TTFN

    Leyla - *hugs* it can be so hard at family gatherings. People really don't realise how hard it is to answer a blase question about having kids. I know that I will never ever be asking anyone about such a personal decision, because I know how uncomfortable I have been on the other end of these questions.

    Happy easter to everyone else! I banned easter eggs from our house this year, but caved in on sneaking a block of cadbury dairy milk into the house - for medicinal purposes of course! I always crave chocolate when AF is here

    Well I'm off to make a hot chocolate.

    Cheers

    Morning all

    Hope you have had a lovely Easter break so far.

    Bun - you don't sound like a freak at all! For every loss, there are so many emotions and thoughts to deal with! It is hard when you don't know why you are having the problems that you are. I hope your have that bub soon.

    Janeo - fingers crossed you have some wonderful news in a few days!

    Salt - Let me know how you find the OPK's from Lullaby..I heard they are cheap and very accute. Good luck bd'ing

    Leyla - what a bugga I'm so sorry AF turned up...and then having to face the barage of questions about it...it's not fair.

    sharon19270 - wow! There's a difference between being supportive and taking over! Hope your friend realises soon that she doesn't have to take it on as her and just be there for you. Did you decide what to do for your ceremony??

    How are the newly pregnant ladies going???? Resting and taking care I hope!

    Happy Easter to you all you lovely girls
    Just popped in to day a quick hello & see where everyone is at. Farout when you miss a couple of days in here it takes ages to catch up & see what is happening. Well lots of bding going on over easter for me and am still going along with my charting, not sure that it is right but anyway shall keep going. Have had a UTI since Friday, that would drive ya!!!!!!!! Something I have suffered from since I was about 3, have had lots of tests nothing can be done, put up with it I spose, I have been a little concerned maybe why I struggle to fallas have to go to toilet as soon as bd, Dr orders I might add. I have chatted to my best friend about it & she says just to lay there for 5 mins then go, sometimes still causes infection, what do you guys think.

    Any BFP's over easter? I am sorry for no personals but have to read up a bit more as I get a little confused. Will talk again soon

    Morning girls,

    SP - welcome back, I hope you had a great holiday. We are cycle buddies at the moment, and I O late too, so maybe this month will bring good luck to us both! Good luck with the start of the BD session!

    Herbie - that must be so annoying, TTC with UTIs. I think it is supposed to take not long at all for the spermies to reach their destination, so it is probably ok to go to the toilet right after BD and still get pg.

    Sharon - good luck!

    Leyla - sorry about AF arriving and the questions from the family. Gees, that is just the last thing you need atm. It really is so hard with family. I'm glad you can enjoy being with your nephew. I struggle when around my nephew which I hate, I wish I could just enjoy being around him without feeling sad, but I find it really hard. It will happen for you, and I hope sooner rather than later!!

    janeo - you should def start looking at wedding mags and stuff. Even though the wedding won't be for a while, it is a great distraction and there are so many things to think about with a wedding! How exciting!

    Hi las, belinda, shan and everyone else.

    Bekz - how are you going?

    *las* my friend got the message that I wasn't going to let her be involved and she was OK with it (she had to be really) I actually performed my little ceremony last week, I found a party shop and bought 1 helium filled yellow balloon, I had printed off a little poem from the net, and then went down to the river in Penrith and sat very quiet for about 20 mins, I read my poem, then rolled it up and tied it to the balloon and sat there for about another 5 mins and then I just let go, I cried for about 5 mins and then I was fine and I just feel so much better for it and was so glad that I was on my own.
    Herbie I find it really hard to catch up when I have missed a few days too, sometimes so much can go on in here even after I have logged in in the morning, then I come in again at night and can't believe how many posts there are to read, but I think it is great though. I had a really nasty UTI the other week and I was in so much pain I can't imagine having to go through that frequently it must really suck.

    Hello to everyone else, hope you have all had a great easter weekend.

    I think that I am going to cave and test tomorrow morning LOL I just can't help myself!

    Sharon - don't test, wait.....no I change my mind, test...I have no willpower for you hehe

    Jane - Don't worry about the -ve, as you said, you have had a -ve turn into a +ve after a few days. Maybe if you focus on wedding magazines and preparations, it will take your mind off the next few days, and time will fly by

    Bun - Hi there, hope you had a nice relaxing easter

    Herbie - I found last year that I started getting similar problems after lying there after bd for a while (but I also got a BFP on that cycle). And since I have changed back to getting up and going to the loo straight away, I haven't had any more problems with UTI's, so I'm not sure if that offers any explanation. Hope you had a lovely easter too.

    Hello to everyone else I have missed. I hope you got to relax over the long weekend.

    Well girls I have a small confession to make. When my cycle started like normal this month, I decided to use my last lot of clomid tablets that I have here from last year (and go completely against my current FS - but stuff him!). So I'm back in the race for one cycle. My DH and I had a long discussion about it, along the lines of:

    Me: Honey, I'm on cycle day 3 and I have one packet of clomid, and maybe I should just take them this cycle, and if it doesn't work then I'll listen to my FS, but if it does - wouldn't that be great? What do you think?
    DH: Of course it would be great, but doesn't clomid make you all ****ty?
    Me: yeah, but I can handle any mood swings - it's only for one month. Ok, that's decided.

    So really he had no say in it, only to remind me every day that clomid can be called the "divorce drug" haha everytime I get a bit cranky at him. Men!

    So I'm terrified that it won't work and I'll be really upset with a neg result, but I guess we have to be in it to win it, right?

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG i can see a really faint line, I am fairly certain that it isn't an evap line as it came up pretty much straight away and I could see it there before the 5 mins where up, I have taken a pic but it is really difficult to see the line on the camera, I don't have a image hosting website for so can't show anyone either. I have compared it to my 10 dpo test stick from back in Nov (yes I still have them LOL) and it is about the same as that. so......................

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

    don't think I will officially announce in the pregnancy thread just yet, will wait until my suggested test date by FF (Friday) when I will test again. Please send me lots of sticky vibes.

    Sharon - OMG!!!! Crossing everything and sending you lots of sticky vibes!! Your ceremony sounded beautiful and I hope it helped you heal

    Belinda - Good luck with your clomid cycle! I squeezed one last one it when FS said it was time to move on and it was the one that we conceived DS on! Here's hoping it works for you too!

    Salt - I'm not sure what that would mean. If you can't wait for your appointment, could you speak to your OB on the phone?? Or, maybe see your GP in the mean time???

    I have no idea what is going on here. OPK's last week gave me 2 lines, although the test line was not darker than the control line like it's supposed to be. We BD'd anyway. Over the weekend OPK's gave me no result on the test line, so hoping we might have got lucky. Had a surge in CM over the weekend, so very confused Will just wait and see, otherwise, only 3 weeks until my follow up appointment with FS.

    Hi Lovely Ladies,

    Hope everyone had a great Easter. My Easter was ok, except my DD and DH have had gastro. So I have had heaps of up and down nights and lots of bed linen washing. So far I have doged this bullet!!!!

    Megsmum - Sorry to hear of your losses. I have had 2 m/c after a perfectly normal pg. Seems that I am pg again (6wks post D and C) and I am trying to keep positive about this one.

    Leyla - Sorry about AF hon.

    Bun - You sound so much happier. I know it will happen for you.

    SP - Goodluck with bding. I can't help you about the spotting. It could be an number of things, such as you interupted your cervix, you have break through bleeding becasue your hormones are not balanced yet, ovulation pain!!!!! Best to ask doc. If you are concerned go to your local gp or call your ob and ask to talk quickly with him.

    Sharon - Way to go girlfriend. I was thinking about your and SP this morning and hoping that we would all be belly buddies together again. Of course I would like everyone hear to be bb as well.

    Hi to everyone else, hope you are all well.

    Did another hpt this morning and it is still +ve. Boobs have been sore and I feel a bit sickish (don't know if this is tummy bug though). Going to doc tomorrow is get bt. So far I am keeping positve, although yesterday I started to feel a bit nervous because all my issues started at 5wks/6wks last time, fingers crossed hey. Best go, I need a sleep and the only time I can sleep is when DD is down.

    Kisses

    CONGRATS SHARON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY YAY so now i want a heap more BFP so we can clear out of here and into belly buddies together...

    SP i wouldnt worry to much that happened to me too a couple of times. The dr told me TMI that when you organism your uterus contracts and you can have some bleeding he said not to worry as this is normal after what you have been through.....

    YAY Bekz!!!!!! sticky vibes matey....

    YAY Belinda i have a feeling this month will be your month.....

    Well i am sooooooooo emotional today (i got really emotional at this stage of cycle when i was pg i cried after hearing of friends getting engaged) i haved cried twice over the bloody engagement ring what we want to spend/and he thinks waiting a few weeks before getting it maybe 6 weeks WFT (why did he ask me now then instead of later) and that i have made a appointment with a jeweller in Melb for Friday to show him what i want and get him to tell us how much or actually how big of a diamond we can afford..... Andrew doesnt want to go cos he is on earlys and with footy training this week and playing saturday and being sick of driving.. GRRR this is the only week we can get down together for another few weeks at least as he has footy saturdays and on lates...... Anyhoo after a good cry he gave in and is coming.... hehehe.
    Also having niggly pains very central which im pretty sure i had last time but it seems soooo long ago now im finding it hard to remember...
