    Hi Everyone,

    Tanya - How funny - I went out and bought a HPT today too!! Just couldn't help myself either - funny stuff. I was trying to hold out until the weekend but now that I bought it, there's not chance of that (It's going to be hard enough waiting until the morning) and after my friends announcement, I just want to know and possibly remove some of the pain I'm feeling. The brand I bought will apparently pick up a result anywhere from 7-10 days after conception, so hopefully it will be accurate and I'll know one way or the other!! Scary! :eek:

    Sarah - I'll also be thinking of you tomorrow - I hope the day goes as well as can be expected. It's so beautiful to hear what you have planned!



    I'm sorry I don't have time for any more personals but THANK YOU so much to everyone for their kind words after my little meltdown yesterday! I'm feeling a little better today but still not great. I guess I'm just really anxious about testing too, it's mad. I didn't really sleep last night, so much going through my head. I got home last night and to a house that smelt really weird - DH was home and when I asked him what the smell was, he thought I was mad - he couldn't smell anything. Then I realised it was the buscuits he was eating - how the hell could I smell buscuits as I walked in the door!!!! Just another thing to play over in my mind - it's doing my head in. Is it just my bloody body playing really horrible tricks on me or what??? I'm sooooooooo hoping it's the 'what' - so watch this space - I'll be back first thing tomorrow (Perth time) to let you all know what the story is. Hopefully it's some more good news.

    Hey,

    Lisa - I'm so very sorry to hear about your gf. Unfortunately I had the feeling that the outcome wasn't going to be a pleasant one. I'm just so sorry that another woman has had to go through a painful loss. It's just not fair. I'm sure you'll be there for your gf as much as you possibly can and you'll be a great help to her.

    Kelly - Damn those HPT's being on special. You know, you're sounding VERY pregnant to me. The meltdowns, the funny smells, the overall *feeling* but not wanting to get your hopes up. I'm really, really, really hoping for you honey! I'll jump on first thing in the morning to read your good news!

    Shan - Nice to *see* you. I'm thinking that with your thoughts other places than TTC it might sneak up on you just like it did to Shell! Lets hope so!

    Kirsty - Wow, your appt has come around fast. Probably not fast enough for you though. I'm looking forward to hearing all about your appt and you're following ttc & bfp journey!

    Michelle - I must have missed the post about a friend or somebody with the insulting remarks about Caitlyn's urn and the fact you give her a snuggle. I think it's a fantastic idea and I would be doing exactly the same thing. She is YOUR child and she deserves to be near you! The person/people making the comments must have never experienced a loss and therefore don't know how hard it hurts. The way you commemorate her life is truly beautiful and it shows what a remarkable and compassionate woman that you are. I liked the post where you said that knowing your daughter, she wants the whole year to herself! Didn't we say she was being picky about finding a sibling? Cheeky little muffin!

    Tanya - Oh my, temp rises is a VERY good sign! Have fun with your Japanese student tonight. All the best!

    Sarah - Thinking of you sweetheart on Kately's EDD. I'm really glad that you do a family thing in her honour and an even more beautiful touch to take her with you. That's absolutely gorgeous and I love the idea about her urn being the same shape as her *bedroom*. That's just too precious for words. Tears filled my eyes when I read that.

    Belle - You go snag that man of yours you bedroom vixen!

    Me - I'm sure I have forgotten people and I swear it's not intentional. I have had a busy day and I'm pooped. I"m not sure if I said, but I booked my 12w scan for next Friday. I'm quite excited. I highly recommend you ladies hiring a doppler because I have stopped the loo visits just to check my knickers for blood and I haven't had any more panics that the baby is no longer alive. It's been a massive godsend. I've packed it away now for a couple of days and I plan on returning it when I start showing and feeling movements.

    Love Jayne

    No Jayney - you didn't miss a nasty comment. I just know there are some people who would think it weird to have Caitlyn on the side board in the loungeroom. But like Sarah and I said - who cares what they think. She is part of our family and will stay there. As for holding her, it is really only the girls here (and DH of course) that know that I cuddle her. I'm pleased the doppler is easing your concerns .... I think I might need one next pregnancy too for my mental health.

    Ohh guys - I'm sooo nervous about testing. I didn't think it would be this hard! Every time I go to the loo, I get really scared that af might arrive, then when it doesn't - it's like 'woo-hoo there's still hope'!! Very much a rollercoaster ride!!

    Also didn't mention it before (and sorry if tmi) but I had quite a lot of thick creamy white CM again this morning - so I hope that's another good sign. Surely there's far too many signs for it to be mind games!! But once again, don't want to get my hopes up too much - it's only been 3 and a bit months since the m/c - surely I can't be pg again this quickly. I really thought it would take a lot longer this time but don't think I can handle it if it does!!! I'm also worried that I'm testing too early. My cycle before the m/c was a bit longer - maybe 35 days but what the hell - I can't wait any longer!!!

    Tonight is going to be HELL, I probably won't sleep again. It's crazy!!!

    Kelly ~ good luck with the testing tomorrow morning. Please, don't get too down if it's a BFN, because it took 2 weeks before my HPT came up +ve!!! Fingers crossed for you!

    Hello everyone, hope you are all better than me! I am full up with a cold *sniffle*, how yucky. There are so many bugs going around it's not funny. I have so many patients cancelling because they're sick.

    Kelly, GL with your testing tomorrow, and like beccy said, don't stress if it's a BFN, I got three BFNs before my BFP! Everything crossed for you!

    Lisa, I'm so sorry for your friend. This must be a really hard time for you as well, although I'm sure that you are very supportive of your bf. I am here for you if you need anything. for you, thinking of you friend.

    Sarah I hope your friends are okay. It's a hard time, but I'm sure they'll pull through. They are lucky to have a friend like you! I will be thinking of you tomorrow. I hope you have a lovely time with your dh and your girls. I'm sure it's a difficult day for you, but a special one as well. I hope the weather is lovely for you, and I will look forward to catching up with you next week.

    Sorry girls, no more personals, just too tired and sick. Best of luck with all testing, HPTs and OPKs! Dh is off on a fishing trip tomorrow,for three nights, and I am going away for a girlie night on sat night. Yay! Then have an appt with my ob on Monday night, so we're looking forward to that. Hopefully he says that we can ttc. Fingers crossed for me please ladies! Thank you!

    Love Sez xoxo

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks so much for all the good wishes.

    Tested this morning but got a BFN. Surprisingly, I'm not as upset as I thought I'd be but I'm still not feeling well. Was nauseous all night - maybe just because I was anxious about the test. Must stop doing this to myself. I think it's time to start preparing myself for af.

    I'm just annoyed with my bloody body - if I hadn't been getting so many signs this week, I wouldn't even be expecting a BFP.

    Hope you had more luck Tanya!

    Kelly xx

    Hello everyone,
    I decided to join this thread even though I'm not actually ttc just yet, I only had D&C take 2 a week and a half ago. I feel fine but I am BUSTING to be pregnant again. I am wondering since I had 2 D&C's within a week if AF will take longer to reappear. I'm hanging for it (the first time in my life lol). I am desperate to start trying again, though I think I should probably wait for 2 or 3 AF's due to having 2 D&C's. Anyway you guys are soooo suportive I thought I'd join to offer and gain support! Thanks guys!

    Morning all...

    Kelly - I'm so sorry that you didn't get a BFP...but that doesn't mean it won't happen, maybe it's just too early...test again tomorrow perhaps...don't give up hope just yet.

    Kriminal - not sure if it will take longer for AF to arrive...what advice did your OB give you? I know what you mena about busting to be preggers again.

    I had a chiro appointment last night and found out that my regular chiro was preggy. I was so happy for her, but it's still hard to see it...especially when its a friend. She's had some complications though so she's not treating patients anymore. But, I feel great after being put back into alignment by her other practitioner

    Well...today is cycle day 10. Temp this morning has gone down a touch, was 36.5. We're going to Melbourne for DH's cousins wedding so I'm hoping to get in a bit of BD'ing whilst we're away. Hubby has been working mental hours and we just don't have time for each other at the mo'...it's driving me up the wall...I know that the time frame at the moment isn't critical, but you know, every little bit helps

    Anyway, hope you're all well. Will pop back later to check up on you all.

    Love & hugs,

    Kate x.

    Well ladies.... you may remember my putting out this order about a fortnight ago:
    Right ladies - I want a tonne of this occurring! We want to clear this place with us all leaving with big round bellies and cheesy grins on our faces!
    Now it seems three ladies have taken heed - Danni, Michelle & Deb.... so the ball has started rollling.... lets keep on emptying these TTC threads! Yaye!!

    BFN for me too... I had a temp drop too (I know I said I would only test if my temp was still looking good, after a rise of 0.1 yesterday, it dropped 0.16 today )... so I guess AF will be here tomorrow or the next day. Bit bummed

    Our Japanese guest has left We dropped her off with all the other Japanese sudents and most of the girls just cried...Awwwwwww.

    Kell, I am so sorry you got a BFN too... sux huh? I hope yours will change tho.

    Good morning ladies!

    Lisa, I replied to your other thread also. I'm so very sorry for your friend. Thinking of you both during this difficult time...

    Sarah, I hope you having a beautiful day remembering your little girl today. I think it's so wonderful what you have planned. Huge huge hugs sweetie...we're all thinking of you

    Tanya, I'm sorry to hear you got a BFN too. Maybe it's just too early...??

    Michelle, any idea when you're due to O? I'm the opposite to you...my CM generally reveals nothing so I need to go by my temps and now OPK's. I'm loving them! LOL

    Kirsty, I bet you're counting the days until your specialist appointment! It must seem like such a long wait. I'll be that it's nothing but great news for you.

    Jayne, I can't believe your 12w scan is next Friday...where did the time go??!! The doppler sounds awesome. DH and I are planning on buying one. I don't think you can ever get enough peace of mind when you're pg, especially after a loss.

    Sez, have a great time with the girls! Sorry to hear your sick...that damn flu is certainly getting around. I hope that your OB gives you the green light on Monday night.

    Kelly, I'm sure that's it's just too early to test, sweetie. Remember that Shell got a BFN before a BFP...and she had lots of strong symptoms too! It ain't over til the fat red lady sings!!!

    Kim, a huge welcome! I felt exactly the same way after my D&C...I couldn't wait to start TTC again. I hope that your body sorts itself out very quickly. It must have been awful having to go through two D&C's.

    Kate, have a fabulous time in Melbourne this weekend! And have fun with all the practice BD'ing! LOL

    Hello to everyone I've missed!

    Did I mention how much I LOVE OPK's???!!! LOL I did another one this morning and the second line came up instantly and is even darker than the control line! :eek: I tell you, seeing those two little lines is almost as satisfying as seeing a BFP. OK, well not quite! LOL But it's still pretty exciting! My temp dropped this morning too so I think today is the day!!! Here's hopeing I'll officially be in the TWW after tonight!

    Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!!

    Love & babydust

    Wooo hooo Belle!! Go get that man and lets move you into the TWW. Me - CM is increasing - yay!!!! Gues what I'll be doing tonight. Grabbed DH for a quickie before he went to sleep after nights so I am making the most of every opportunity. I WANT to get that damned egg and further Keen's instructions (wow Keen, your instructions are as powerful as Kazz's booties at the moment!!!) Ooops - sorry if that was just a little too much information. Just a little excited about getting to the TWW (if that isn't insane I am not sure what it )

    Tanya and Kelly - you are still in there. But if the nasty AF arrives, we are here to drag you kicking and screaming back up the hill again. (((hugs)))

    Sez - I hope you feel better. Enjoy the night out with the girls (and the bed to yourself while DH is away)

    Kate - enjoy the weekend and the practice with DH.

    Kim - welcome!! Join us for the trials of TTC - some of us are getting to be pros

    Lisa - I hope you are ok. I know the next few days will be tough for you but also remember that *special* time you need to fit in with DH. You, Belle and me have plans!!!

    Sarah - I know you aren't on today but sending you a big hug. It is cloudy here today - my indicator that Caitlyn is nearby (long story) but there is a glimmer of sun. I hope that is how you find the day.

    to all the other lovelies. Hope you have a wonderful day!!

    Hey Ladies,

    Kelly - Sorry about the BFN matey. Just remember that Shell posted a BFN and then a BFP the very next day!!!!!

    Michelle - Yay on the O time!!! You go snag that man anytime you can in the next couple of days! I'll be *rooting* for you. PMSL. Hahahahahahha

    Belle - Oh ah you've lost your bra, you're leaving it in your man's car! *singing while typing* You go and set that egg & sperm up on a date!!!! You've become a compulsive POAS'er!!! I love it!

    Tanya - So bummed out about your BFN too. Could just be early days though! You just never know!

    Me - As you can tell I'm in a good mood. I actually think I'm delirious with tiredness. I might go have a nanny nap while Jessica is asleep.

    Love Jayne

    It has been a little quiet here today ... maybe everyone is *busy*
