    Hello everyone, just a quick note before I go make dinner - I have to tell someone and you're it - I tested last night after I got home from the school excursion and I tested this morning and this afternoon after I got home from school and each time a faint second line!!!!!!!! I'm very happy but am trying my hardest to be cautious about it because last cycle I got faint positives too and then AF arrived a couple of days late... I so hope this is going to be a sticky one. For the next two days I'll be out of town for professional development and as I'll be sharing a family suite with three other teachers, no chance of my testing again until I get home on Friday night. Wish me luck that AF won't have arrived and that I see big fat dark second line... Back later to do personals!!!!!

    Thanks Tinsel, Shan, Jane and BekZ! I'm feeling quite positive about this one, so will just keep hoping that this is it.
    Welcome Tonners, good luck for your TTC journey. This is the BEST thread.
    Bun and Saltprincess, I'm really glad your counselling sessions went well.
    Soooo tired and need to be on my way at 6am tomorrow so I'm heading to bed. Be back Friday night!

    Yay Kerry! That's fantastic news!!! I will be waiting to hear more when you are back online.

    SP - I am glad to hear that your counselling session went well, it can be really helpful I have found. Actually, since my last session, I have not had any negative thoughts, nor have I cried all week! That may not sound like much for some, but for me lately that is real progress. I really hope that it helps you just as much. It is so good talking to someone who acknowledges the loss - some people IRL can be so unbelieveably insensitive, I know it is probably not intentional, but they can really make thing harder sometimes, so it does helpful having someone to talk to who understands. I hope your OB appointment goes well today.

    Well, my RE appointment is this afternoon. I am not feeling anxious about it yet, but I am sure I will be soon, as I usually am. He mentioned thinking I may have PCOS last time, which I laughed off as I have no symptoms at all except slightly irreg cycles since going off the pill, but after doing some more reading, I am thinking that maybe I do have it and just not many symptoms? Anyway, it will be interesting to find out I suppose, I just hope that none of my results are bad, like chromosomally or bad FSH.... I am a little scared and hope all turns out ok....

    Hi to everyone else, will BBL.

    Well, guys, the anxiety is really sinking in now. I need to leave for my appointment in 1 hour 10 mins and I am panicking!!!! It is silly to worry over something you can't change, and I don't even know that there will be anything to worry about, but I can't help it!! Argh!!!!

    SP - so glad to hear about how supportive your boss is (of course, I am sorry for her loss, but someone who has been through this understands better than anyone else, and it is esp helpful when it is your boss). I am the same as you - I only tell people who are supportive, but unfortunately, I haven't found that many! Too many people just don't understand or say terrible things. Get this - after my first m/c, my MIL told me that she thinks she had one too, because once her period was late!!! I didn't even know how to respond to this - she really has no idea. The other thing she said was that my body just decided to 'throw them away' and will be ok next time

    I can understand your anxiety at going back to the OB's office - I reckon I would be the same if I ever have to go to King Eddies again! I wish you the best of luck, and def have a big glass of wine and a good chill out this afternoon. I will be thinking of you.

    Lisa - thanks for popping in, it is always good to see success stories to keep us going! I often read the PAML thread to see how you are all going.

    Kerry Fantastic news, lots and lots of sticky vibes for this little bubs.
    Bun I hope everything went OK today, I have been thinking of you.
    SP I too was really nervous about going for my checkup after D&C as it was in the same place I was told I had lost my baby, but I coped really well, and the receptionist was just lovely, and kind, and understanding and it really felt good to get it over and done with.
    Bekz I started taking vitex my last cycle because 2 cycles before that my luteal phase was only 9 days and I had read that it can help to increase your luteal phase (which it did, by 3 days) by regulating your hormones, but will try next cycle without it just to see if it was a coincidence.
    Tonners sorry to hear about your loss, and your low iron levels, I hope they start to improve for you soon. I love this forum, don't know how I would have survived without it.

    Hello to everyone else.

    I am on CD 24 and got my coverline today, so that means that I O'd right when I was supposed to so I am very happy about that.

    Sharon - Yipee on coverline. At least you know your body to regulating and working again.

    SP - Sorry that you had a downer after your OB apt. I hope you start to feel better soon, after all your OB was really positive for you and that is a really good sign.

    Bun- Have been thinking about you, how did you go hon?

    Nothing new with me atm, at least my PMT symptoms have gone away!!!!! DH told me the other night that he wants me to put my thermometer away and let things just happen!!! But I still want to temp so I know what my body is up to. So I will continue to temp for a while and if it all gets too much I'll put it away...

    Morning girls!

    Sharon- yay on getting a coverline!! It really helps seeing your cycle start as normal again after a m/c - I think it really helps to move on forward rather than looking backward at what has happened.

    Bek - my DH was the same - wanted to just 'see what happens', and I agreed, so there has been no more temping for me. I have a pretty good idea of when O will happen now anyway, so don't really need to temp. I hope you manage without it, it does leave you a bit lost at first I think!

    SP - sorry to hear that you are down about your OB appointment. I am sure you will get AF soon and that will sort things out. It must have been so very hard to sit in that waiting room for an hour surrounded by pg women - the waiting is so hard, esp in that company!! It was the same for me in King Eddies, I was surrounded by pg women for 5 hours before it was my turn to discuss how to get rid of the 'products of conception' - *shudder*. I think you are very strong to have gotten through it, and it does all sound positive. Follow up appointments are difficult, I have also found that it brings it all back - at my first RE appointment I was a basket case. But it is over now!! And we are all here for you

    Well, my RE appointment went very well. I am actually smiling for the first time in a long time (and I had to have 2 fillings at the dentist last night - smiling all the way there -the dentist must have thought I was a freak!). All my tests came back clear - actually, they were really good results, so he thinks the m/cs were just bad luck, which was his initial thought anyway. The chromosome tests on DH and I are not back yet, but he thinks there is only a 1% chance of that being the problem anyway, so it should be fine. He also did a scan, and I def don't have PCOS - ovaries and uterus look great, and I am going to O tomorrow!! I am stoked, because that is when I thought I would, and I was right! So the plan is, try this month and hopefully get pg, and if not, then we will do cycle tracking next month to make sure hormone levels are where they should be through the whole cycle, and if they could do with a boost, he will put me on clomid the following month which should help for a stronger O, and hopefully, less a chance of m/c. I am so stoked to have a plan, and to feel like someone is taking care of me - that is really important to me now, and I am usually v independent, I guess all this is taking its toll on me. I am just so happy that everything is ok, and it gives me more confidence going into a new pg.

    Sorry to ramble on so much guys... Hello to everyone else, I hope you are all having a great day!!

    I am so happy that everyone is starting to feel better.

    Bun- It is so good to hear that you have hope again and that you are feeling +ve.

    Jane - Fingers crossed for this month.

    SP - I think it is a nice to have some thing to remind you of your angel. You don't have to have a ceremony and you don't have to say goodbye. YOu can just have some thing to say " We'll always remember you." Like a picture frame with a scan pic and poem next to it. Or an angel with a poem. Don't feel you ever have to say goodbye, this is way too final and upsetting. I won't say goodbye to my angels because I talk to them and they look over my DD for me. Sorry I just made myself cry.

    Re: Me temping. I just don't think I can do without temping until AF comes back regular. I need to know when I O so that I can take natural progesterone in the LP. If the temping gets to me and we get stressed then I will give it away for a bit.

    Janeo - that's great that Af is over and you feel like you can now move on with things - best of luck at catching that egg this month!!

    Bek - as long as temping is not stressing you out, I reckon it is fine to keep going. After all, it is only a couple of seconds out of your day, and it can tell you soooo much, esp after a m/c when things can be a little unpredictable and different from normal. I think it is great that your angels are looking over your DD

    SP - I agree with Bek, you are not saying goodbye to your angel, just commemorating him in some way. A lot of people find this very helpful so I would def say do something, like plant a tree in his memory. It must have been so hard hearing from your OB that it was a boy, and I can understand things are hard atm. Try and remember that although you have been through a terrible time, the OB did only have good news, and the chance of a happy healthy pg next time is very very high. It's just hard to get the negative thoughts out of your head sometimes (I understand that only too well). BTW, I thought I would reply to the other thread here - I live in Atwell, SOR. It would be great being so close to the city!! I feel like we are aaages away and the trip to the city on the bus everyday is a nightmare. Bring on the train!

    Well, after being all happy before, now I am sad again! I just went to Medicare to claim back $ from the RE appointments, and the guy says 'this is for IVF isn't it?'. I don't know why, but this upset me, I was surrounded by people, he was flashing the account about which said 'Fertility Specialists', and I don't know, I just felt upset. I simply said 'No'. Just because the RE works out of a fert cliinic doesn't mean I am on IVF - heaps of people go to fert clinics for all sorts of reasons, not necessarily IVF, and the description on the invoice was 'Attendance on a professional', no procedures or anything, the idiot. Anyway, I don't know why this upset me, but I guess it just did.

    Hi everyone else, I hope you all have a great weekend.
