    YAY SHELL Congratulations that is just wonderful news and i am so excited for you!!! Have you told your DH yet or will you do that tonight? Well done chicky i hope you have started a mass flood over to PAML - all the very best for the next 9 months or so!

    Tanya, How are you doing matie? Have you managed to hold off testing after Shell's big news? Hopefully you will be the very next with a BFP on Sunday!

    Lisa, I think that "freaky date sign" has has has to be a great sign for you although i do hope that it happens for you this month rather than 3 months time! You sound so happy and positive (must be the vodka lol) that it has to be just around the corner for you!

    Michelle, The urn that you have for Caitlyn sounds lovely, mine is different to that but really hard to explain....you can hold it in your hand (as its round at the back) and it has a little teddy bear etched into it. The woman who helped us with all that at the hospital said its shaped like a womb for Katelyn to rest in IYKWIM. Its great to hold her in the palm of my hand though! I am so glad that you have started to feel better...we cant have you sick at O time - bummer about having to schedule the bd with your DH. Are you using OPK's? ITs your turn next honey! Well actually your turn (and Lisa's) are well over due so i hope to see you both out of here for good in about 3 weeks time!

    Belle, Oh you make me laugh so much - about your DH being in trouble - i am SURE he loves it lol. You are so going to catch that egg this month!!

    Kristy, You are NOT a failure and it was in no way your fault that Amy is not here, you are her mother and like me you would do ANYTHING and i mean ANYTHING to have your baby here,I am so so sorry that AF arrived, we are all hear to support you though so dont stop coming around, you are incredibly brave to start trying again after losing Amy. I wish that this had been your month and i totally hear you on not wanting to be pregnant with a baby that is due around Amy's due date. I was and still am that way about both Katelyn's due date and her actual birth date. But in the same token i am sure that there is nothing that Amy would like better than to see you and her dad holding her healthy screaming beautiful sibling in your arms, after all you wouldnt be trying to conceive another baby if it wasnt for the joy that you experienced with Amy in your life for that short time. I am here if you need me, i lost Katelyn at 18 weeks and all your emotions seem very familiar, although they cant be exactly the same i know how much you loved Amy and how much you want to hold her baby brother or sister.

    Kelly, Oh i am sorry that you are feeling this way, please dont worry about posting this here, we are all here to support each other through the good and bad times. I understand totally how you feel. Do you remember that i said to you the other day there was two babies born before i got Lucy...well when my friend told me that she was pregnant she left the message with my DH and i had to ring her back and bloody hell that was so hard, even though i was so happy for her because she had miscarried a baby that was due the day after my Katelyn so i really wanted her to be pregnant i just really really wanted that myself (and as it turned out i got a BFP maybe a week or two later). What you are feeling is all about you and your feelings it has nothing to do with the other person and her pregnancy so dont feel bad. It is just such a hard time that you are going through and especially being in the TWW probably didnt help that at all. I really hope that this is your month because it does really sound promising with all your symptoms. I am here if you need me.



    As for me, i dont like my chances this month.........i was feeling positive and then yesterday Lucy came and jumped on my tummy quite hard down low in the pelvis area and i just thought how is a baby every going to be able to implant properly with that happening so i am bummed today. I know that i am probably over reacting but i just so want it - i am so bloody impatient...i am way back in the BFP que for this thread. Any thoughts on this girls? I am probably feeling a bit down because it is Katelyn's due date anniversary on Friday...she would have been two. We are going for our picnic on the weekend which we do twice a year for her so that will be nice, you know its funny but it has so far always been great weather when we get to the beach, even if it has been a rainy day it is always fine when we get there, Rowan reckons Katleyn is looking down on us. On another note one of my friends at mothers group told me about her BFP today so hopefully the flow keeps going with all your girls in here!

    Love Lots Sarah xx

    I just had to jump on and say CONGRATULATIONS to Shell....well done honey!! Can't wait to have you over in the PAML thread!

    Kelly ~ TTC is sooo hard...the pg symptoms are so much like AF it's very hard to tell. I know how heartbreaking it is when other people fall pg...you feel happy and yet devastated all at the same time. Try to see the positive side ~ people are falling pregnant and that means that you will soon too!

    So....the gates are open now everyone!!! Come on through...don't forget your bags!!

    Luv Beccy

    Biggest CONGRATULATIONS to you Shell!!!! I am so excited for you, and I really think you are starting a mass exodus from this thread! It's about time too! What is your due date? Again, I am so pleased for you and your dh, I just can't keep the smile off my face!

    I'm so excited I think I've forgotten all of my personals! (Not that there's many! )

    Sarah, please don't stress sweetie, I'm sure nothing has affected any possible implantation for you! I've still got everything crossed for you. How many DPO are you? And when do you start the sids counselling?

    Kelly, please don't worry about that post, nobody will be offended. As Sarah said, these emotions are all about you. We know you will wish your friend well, but it's a very difficult time for you. It's funny, before I was ttc I was always dying for someone to fall pg, and it never seemed like anyone did, and now it seems to be happening all over the place! Which is a great thing, but it's still hard IYKWIM. We're all here for you when you need us. It's amazing how sometimes just writing it all down and venting makes you feel so much better! BTW, I'm with Shan, I secretly think you're pg too......the suspense is killing me!

    You are a wicked girl Belle! I'm sure your dh loves it!!!! How good are OPKs?!!!! I love them. I don't know what it is, but there is something seriously satisfying about POAS. Especially when you get two lines! LOL You go catch that eggie girl!

    Lisa, I hope your acupuncture went well. LOL at you getting the giggles and then hitting the pillow! Make sure you don't do that at O time! I'm so sorry for your friend (and you). I really hope everything is okay for her, it doesn't sound great, does it? She's lucky to have someone so supportive by her side. I'm crying as I type this, it just makes me think about my mc for some reason. I have everything crossed for her. Let us know how she goes.

    Okay guys, we need to organise a big send off for Michelle, Lisa and Keen now, let them know they're not wanted in here anymore! (JUST KIDDING) I'm sure we won't have to twist their arms...........I'm sure they must be next in line, with the rest of us to follow soon, very soon indeed!

    CD 9 for me, can start using OPKs soon YAY! I am really in two minds as to what to do. On one hand I think that we've been good and waited one month, let's just go for it now. On the other I think that we should do as we've been told and wait. It's only one more month after all. And I think dh will want to follow Drs orders. AND I'm worried that if i fell pg this cycle and then mc again I would blame myself. Okay, head is spinning now, need to relax a little! Sorry everyone, just a bit undecided. Feeling happy though, either way ttc is not far away!

    Happy Thursday to everyone!

    Love Sez xoxo

    Hey Sez,

    Thanks for the encouragement! I hope that you are right - only time will tell i guess!

    I cant tell you what to do either, all i know is that the waiting for TTC is really hard when all you want is that BFP. Do you know why your doc told you to wait? or is it just his personal (obviously professional) opinion? Just that from what i have heard lots of Docs vary on how long to wait. We were told after we lost Katelyn just to go ahead when we "felt" that we were ready rather than waiting a certain length of time. Have a chat with your DH about it and hopefully you will make a decision before O time.

    I have started the S&K contacts although i havent had any direct calls yet...but i am already hearing frightening stories.....

    Lisa, How is your friend doing matey? I have been thinking of her and hope that all turns out to be well.

    Sad news from friends of ours, they lost their first baby today at their 13 week scan. They hadnt told us they were pregnant before (but we sort of knew) but rang us to tell us what had happened.....she is having a D&C tomorrow poor things, its so hard when i know what pain they are going through and there is nothing that we can do to help them. They dont live near us so i am going to send a card with some nice poems.......its just so scary isnt it!

    Love Sarah xx

    Oh Sarah, that is just awful!! It's great that she feels she can talk to you... you must be a great friend!!
    Also, I am sure Lucy could jump on you 1000 times and it wouldn't stop a baby implanting... it's amazing how well the uterus is protected in there.
    And yes I have held off even after Shell's great news... although you are right, it does make you want to test...lol
    Congrats to your other friend too...

    Sez, good luck with whatever you decide to do. I know it can be hard just thinking about waiting!!

    Kell, Sure you will be disappointed if AF turns up this cycle... that is no reason to not feel positive, if AF turns up you will be disappointed regardless of feeling positive or not... did that make sense? LOL

    Jayne... eeeeep at Jess!! How scary! They can be so fearless at that age!!

    Keen, how are you?

    9DPO (Sorry if that is annoying...every morning when I get on I say how many DPO I am) and I had a 0.1oC temp rise Fingers crossed for the same tomorrow!!
    We have a farwell party for the Japanese students tonight... I think I am going to make some rumballs (without the rum of course). So it is our last night with our Japanese guest tonight

    Sarah sweetie I am sure that even Lucy's best jumping efforts couldn't hamper the implant of another precious bubba (I often think in the early days how much James jumped on my tummy before we knew we were pg & they both still found a little sticky spot for themselves) so you aren't out of the running yet. Big hugs to you for tomorrow, we didn't do much yesterday just lit his candle as I am trying a little not to hold on to the past too strongly (it so isn't doing myself & my relationship with DH much good) but that doesn't mean I don't often think of Alex & what could have been. If all had gone to plan I'm sure I would have had a rough & tumble pair of kids aged 4 & 2 by now but it just wasn't to be just yet.

    I also have to say I think you will be fantastic when it comes to S&K's, they couldn't ask for a more understanding, sympathetic & caring person to help out others in horrible situations. I'm sure you'll do fantastically irregardless of the horror stories you have heard.


    Huge hi's to everyone else who is in here. I am so sorry for not keeping more up-to-date with you all but I do read everyone's posts each & every day, I am just finding it so hard to come in here & actually post atm. Guess I really just need to get the specialist appointment out of the way first so that I know what our future holds in regards to whether or not we embark on another TTC journey or whether James is it for us. But I hope you are all well & I think it is fantastic the amount of support you all show for each other as you all travel this frustrating & disappointing path.

    Good morning ladies!

    Lisa, LOL @ giggling after taking the vodka and herbs and then passing out! Do the herbs have the same effect on your DH? I'm thinking of your friend this morning...I that everything is fine with her little bubba.

    Shan, hi sweetie! We've missed you...I hope you're still hanging around stalking us all!

    Tanya, LOL you're not annoying at all with the DPO countdown. Are you going to test soon??? That temp rise this morning sounds positive...let's hope it just keeps going up and up!

    Shell, how are you feeling today, hon? I hope that you're the first of a tidal wave of BFP's! Can't wait to follow your pg journey!!

    Kelly, I hope you're feeling better today, sweetie. I think the way you're feeling is completely and utterly normal. If any of my friends announced they were pg right now, I would be equally happy/devastated. We should ALL be either pregnant or holding our babies right now. But we've lost our precious bundles. So OF COURSE we all want to be pg again NOW NOW NOW and it hurts when it's happening for other people and not us. But rest assured that your time will come, honey...it will happen for ALL of us!

    Sarah, Tanya is absolutely right...I'm sure the bub would implant even if Lucy was tap-dancing on your tummy! LOL Stay positive, honey. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend...that brings back awful memories of my scan at almost 13 weeks. It's truly devastating to think that you're so far along... My thoughts are with her.

    Sez, it's very hard when your heart is telling you one thing and your doc is telling you another! Did your doc give you a reason for waiting? That was one of the first questions I asked the hospital, and they said to wait until my first AF and then go for it! And yes OPK's are fabulous...there's something soooooooo satisfying about POAS! LOL

    Hello to everyone else!

    When I got home last night I used another OPK and nothing came up...absolutely zip! I told DH and he was devastated because he'd been too tired to BD the night before so he thought we'd missed our chance. So he started asking about my temps and working it all out in his head, whether I'd O'ed or not....so cute LOL ANYWAY, I used another OPK at my usual time this morning and it's definitely positive! YIPPEE!!! The second line is very dark So now the REAL BD-fest begins mwahahahahahahahahahahah

    Love & babydust

    Belle - you make me laugh. Good luck with the BD fest tonight and for the rest of the weekend!!!! But ... that laugh is a scary one :eek:

    Sarah - hugs to you and your friend. It is a reminder of how fragile all of this is.

    Lisa - thinking about your friend today. I hope everything is ok.

    I'll be back later to *try* to do more personals - there are just so many and I feel guilty when people get left out. Might have to use paper first

    Hi girls,

    Sad news, by best friend's baby passed away. They couldnt detect a hb and the ultrasound, and it had stopped growing at 6 weeks I feel so devastated like someone just drove a dagger deep in my heart. To make matters worse, the 'cyst' she had is actually a tumor so she will have to have it removed, and looks like they will have remove part of her fallopian tube and maybe the ovary also. Why is this life so cruel?

    I'll try and catch up with you gals later, but for now i have to go..

    Oh Lisa,

    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend and as Shell mentioned, she's so lucky to have you to help her through. I'm thinking of you both. It certainly puts things back into perspective for me too!

    Take care.

    Hi girls,

    Lisa, honey, i posted to you in your other thread about your friend but i wanted to say again how sorry i am for them to have to go through that. Of course you feel like you have been stabbed in your heart, you know the pain that she is going through and the awful news that she received on top of losing her baby. Im sure you feel as bad as if it was happening to you (but of course your next bubba is going to be so sticky in the right place you might need forceps to get it out maybe a week overdue!). Vent with us if you need to.

    Kirsty, Thanks for your nice message, its great to hear from you, i often worry that you are not posting but totally understand. Its a hard time isnt it, i cant believe that our little ones would have been two this week......where does the time go. Im glad that you feel happy with what you did for Alex's day. You remember him every single day i know so lighting a candle for him on his "special" day is lovely (we do that too). I wish i could fast forward the time until your appointment....and of course that it brings you good news in relation to ttc and holding a baby in your arms (which i am positive that you will be able to do very soon).

    Tanya, you are funny, it sounds as though the tww is not going to badly for you! And your temp looks like a good sign, have you got any symptoms yet?

    Belle, geez your DH better watch out tonight lol you are not going to let him off easy for last night i am sure - YAY on the positive OPK, they sound like a lot of fun! It must be reassuring to get a positive on any POAS thingy! Next will come the BFP in about 2 weeks time for you!

    Michelle, How are you doing? Sorry if i upset you by posting about my friend i just thought you guys would understand how i felt about it but i certaintly dont intend to upset anyone! Are you getting close to O? You gotta be outta here soon girly! Lol about the paper too i usually have to make notes as i go to make sure that i have replied to everyone and then i probably still miss some people out!

    What is everyone else up too? Its pretty quiet in here today! I probably wont be around until next week, its Katelyn's EDD anniversary tomorrow and its just too hard. Tomorrow i am going to the chapel at the hospital with Lucy where we had her naming ceremony and funeral and then on Saturday Rowan, Lucy and i will be going on our picnic to a nice beach with a grassed area that i used to play at as a kid which is about 1/2 and hour away....its usually a special day and we take Katelyn with us. Hope you all have a great weekend and i will catch you later.

    Love Sarah xx

    Sarah - you silly moo!! Of course you didn't upset me by posting about your friend. I am far more fatalistic in my view of the world - if it is meant to happen it will. It is just sad to have people have to experience loss and to know that nothing in this world is guarenteed.

    Getting close to O on dates, but nothing on OPK yet. But I don't always have positive OKP's anyway. CM will be my indicator.

    I will be thinking of you tomorrow for Katelyn's EDD and will have my own candle lit for her. It is so scary to think that in just over 2 months Caitlyn's birth will be reaching its first anniversary. I am not wanting to think about reaching that date without being pregnant again. However, knowing my daughter, she probably has a mission to make the first year hers alone

    Lisa - I answered your other post but :hugs: again. Take care of yourself.

    to everyone else.

    Tanya thanx for asking ~ it is now 12 more sleeps to go until we go to Melbourne to see the specialists.

    Hope you get to use your supermarket special in the morning & that it gives you the BFP that you deserve.

    Hi Girls, how are we all today.....

    Belle - yes i'm still here and still stalking you all..... . I'm reading up on your posts every day, but just haven't been posting much in general. I'll try to do better, but i'm just in a place at the moment where i'm not thinking of TTC at all, so i really don't have much to contribute, but i'll always send a little message every now and then. Fingers crossed you catch that eggie, and that you're announcing your BFP really soon...xxx

    Lisa - I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. to you and to her. I hope everything works out okay for them in the long run...and i hope you are doing okay yourself...xxxx

    Sarah - We'll be thinking of you tomorrow, and what you have planned for Katelyn sounds so lovely. Enjoy your day and even though you'll have her with you, she'll be there in spirit too....xxxx

    Hi Kristy, Tanya, Michelle and everyone else. Hope you're all doing well. I think we need a mass exodus of us in here....there's just too many.....and that's an order :nana:
