    Naomi - that makes sense now!! Will be waiting to see what dr says on Monday! Pop in over weekend and let us know how testing goes.

    Shell - bd your life away woman I can feel a bfp coming from you soon! Glad you enjoyed disney on ice and little Hayleigh behaved. What an angel. She must have been mesmerised by all the characters and colours!

    Im just going to wait it out I think - no more opk's for me this month.



    Thanks Deb for the PM


    A big howdy to everyone else and will catch up over the weekend,
    Lisa

    Yes Naomi, I am telling you what to do, because you are stressing out about it too much, the only way you will know for sure is too get some blood taken and then you will relax, plus if you are not pregnant and coming up to O then you will be so ruining your chances because you are stressed..... I have your best interest at heart sweety.

    (BTW im not really a bossy B#%@h)

    lol Michelle - i know what you mean, but if im not pg and am oing we have no chance of dtd, Rick is working way to longe shifts, like 12-13hr days, and is way to tired to perform, the last time we dtd was like monday! lol i dont think its quite going to last that long! but i dont think we will have a chance to dtd (considering tomorrow night im babysitting by myself) until atleast sunday night, which by all accounts should be way too late.
    heheheh im not stressing i just find it all so confusing, im not going to be crused if i find out im not pg and that i missed the egg and stuff, i know that there is always the following month, ive had such a hetic month that ive gotton over it, im immuned to all things that could hurt me atm iykwim

    but i really appreciate it - i know your really not a bossy ***** but i still love ya for it!

    Lisa - will def pop in over weekend and let you all know

    Well i just did an opk and it has come up a faint positive, so maybe i will O on time after all, i will just keep testing and BD until i get a nice dark line!!!

    I just had an sms from a good friend, she has had AF arrive after going through her second round of ovulation induction, she is crushed, she is not sure if her dh will let her go through IVF, so now i feel a bit down as she wants a bub like all of us so badly, hopefully soon for all of us...now if i could only get her to join BB!!!!

    Bye for now.

    Kazz, My booties are under my pillow!!!!

    Oooh Shell - sounds like there will be loads of "naughties" at your place over the next few weeks. Hope you catch that eggy Keep Kazz's booties close!

    I am sorry for your friend, I hope she can persevere through this af and have better luck next cycle. Please tell her how wonderful all the gals are on here, and we will make her feel very welcome! Even convince her to read through some of our posts - how could she resist after that??


    Have a lovely evening to everyone else!

    Hi everyone..

    Tanya - hope you can get some answers soon about the spotting. I know exactly how you feel.

    Lisa - ROFL - Shell would be absolutely buggered if she took your advice with heaps of BDing over the next few WEEKS. How would we all be if the window to catch that eggie was over 2 weeks instead of 2-4 days...lol

    Shell - Sorry to hear about your friend. I hope she gets her BFP soon and i also hope that those booties under your pillow work for you. If you get your BFP this month, can you send them on to me

    Naomi - I've lost track with you hun...lol...whether your Oing or PG, GOOD LUCK! but if you ask me, secretly i think your pg...shhhhh, don't tell anyone!

    A big hi to everyone else and i hope you all have a fantastic weekend. My SIL is due to have her 1st baby on Tuesday, so i'm heading round the corner to her place for lunch and an arvo of DVD's. Some how i think she will go a week or so over her EDD, but still, that's no too far away. Getting very excited now although when they first told me, i totally lost it and couldn't even look at them for the first 5 months of her pregnancy, especially after our m/c and knowing that we had been trying for so long and that we wanted to produce the first grandchild and that now everyone in the family doesn't even think that i actually had their first grandchild in my belly for a little while, and that because this is a live baby that my feeling don't count............whoa Shan...chill babe......

    Anyway, i'm fine with it now and can't wait to see my little niece or nephew soon and s/he is going to absolutely spoilt rotten by it's aunty (and uncle).

    Sorry for that little rant, my fingers just seemed to be taking over the keyboard a bit...do you think i have squashed my feelings a bit, and they all just started to come spewing out???..

    Okay...i'm going now...

    Hi all,

    Tanya, yes it does seem as thought this thread is the Tanya, Shell, Lisa, Naomi & Shan thread, we might as well re-name it hey! Bummer about the spotting, it must be starting to wear you down, I would be going and getting it looked at soon Matey.

    Shan, I understand you not wanting to see you SIL pregnant, i feel like that sometimes towards some of my pregnant friends, it is hard, but good for you getting over it and spending some time with her, whats happening in your cycle now?

    Lisa, LOL i knew what you meant about the "naughties" thanks for all the kind words for my friend, actually she just phoned me to ask me some questions as AF arrived yesterday and has now stopped to spotting, so i told her maybe she is not out of the race yet, so i so hope its implantation.

    Naomi, Any news as yet hun?

    Well we BD this morning as last night we were both stuffed and could barely keep our eyes open, so we got one in this morning and hopefully again tonight.
    Gosh i really can't wait to DTD purely out of love again.....

    be back later.....

    Shan - I know exactly how you are feeling. I also feel like I will lose it if DH's siblings procreate before me (especially the middle one as his DP is only just younger than me but they have only been together for 12months). I feel like everyone will ignore that fact that Caitlyn ever existed because she was stillborn (even with the funeral etc). I am even worrying if anyone will remember her birthday in about 4 months (my goodness the time has flown!!) But at the same time my niece and nephew are the joy of my life and I wouldn't swap them for anything and I would love any nieces and nephews from DH's side just as much. It just highlights the challenges when you want to be pregnant yourself. We have friends who are pregnant (first try, first cycle) who I haven't seen the girl half since they conceived. I worry how I will react because I am p**** they did it so quickly but yet happy for them all the same. I have made her some little white booties and will send them this week with a card so she knows I am happy for them.

    Me - tired and feeling off. May be a bug from work (DH was off sick with similar yesterday) but I am hoping it is a better sign of something *positive*. I'll be back later after grocery shopping for more personals. Gotta love the mundane.

    Smile

    Noami ~ Ohhhhh, I thought you must've changed your ticke, but still wasn't sure if the AF you had was real or not! My bf had a funny AF and she now has a 3yo!!! lol.
    I cannot wait to hear from you on Monday! It is very exciting! How are you feeling??

    Michelle ~ oooh, your symptoms sound promising! Will be keeping an eye out for your results!

    Shellstar ~ sounds like lots of bd'ing in your house this weekend. LOL at DTD for love again one day!! Poor DH.

    Lisa ~ fingers crossed for you in a couple of weeks. How are you feeling?

    Sorry for no really long personals, I don't really know everyone in here or where they're at. I've just been poking my head in and seeing how Naomi is going!

    Good luck to everyone....see you in PAML thread very soon!!!! It's gonna start clearing out in a few months....we need more people to help us paddle the Ark.

    Sticky vibes to everyone!!

    Hello Ladies,

    Shell - Disney on Ice sounds like it was wonderful. Hayleigh sounds like such a beautiful princess. I wished we lived in the same state so I could organise a play date with her & Jess. You go for it lovey, bd like a porn star!!! PMSL about bding for the love of it rather than the *term deposit* you're receiving! LOL. I used to ask Alan afterwards if he gave me a 9 month term deposit or some small change! PMSL.

    Michelle - Valid point about your family remembering and recognising Caitlyn's birthday. I'm really hoping for you that they do. I think that families often don't speak about things in the fear that they will offend/upset you. Nobody in my family speaks out our m/c and that was a very early m/c, nowhere near as traumatic or sad as what your family endured. I'm not sticking up for them, I'm just saying they probably bite their tongues, but I'm with you, I'd prefer the acknowledgement. I'm really, really, really hoping that you are having positive symptoms! Only time will tell! Isn't it the story of all our lives! LOL.

    Shan - Perhaps you are harbouring some ill feelings but seriously you wouldn't be human if you didn't! Your SIL has the most precious gift just waiting to happen and its what you have lost. It wouldn't be normal to not be thinking 'that should be me', 'why was my baby taken and not hers'. etc... I think you're a wonderful person to be so excited and anxious for the birth. It shows what a strong and loving person you are! Make sure you tell us when he/she arrives!

    Tanya - What's happening with the spotting? Sounds a little odd? My sister LOVES the name Violet and I was saying the other day I'd like it as a middle name and she nearly took my head off! She's very protective of it so I'll be leaving that name well alone!!! LOL.

    Naomi - I AM a bossy b&tch! LOL and I"m TELLING you to get to the doc. I can't believe that you're so chilled about getting a +ve (yes, that's a POSITIVE) HPT and think that it's negative!!! By the way, I'm typing this in good humour. I really, really, really want you to go to the doc. You have returned numerous +ve HPT's. Read the instructions and it will tell you that ANY line on the second window is considered a +ve. It's not like an OPK. By this rate, you'll be 20 weeks pg and getting movements and still thinking that you're waiting to O!!!!! PMSL.

    Liwa/Lisa - How are bumble-bee? Forgive me, I can't remember where you are at. I think you're waiting for O time? So I guess you're getting a whole lot of lovin this weekend too! Lucky devil!

    Me - Had a stressful night, my sis & I took the children to HJ's for dinner and Jessica tripped on the astroturf and whacked her head on the edge of the stairs to the playground. Instant bruise. Could turn of the lights and still see her forehead. Got very worried, decided to take her home and she falls asleep in the car. We stressed whether it was concussion or just tiredness cos she hadn't slept all day. Waited for an hour and woke her. She was one grumpy monkey but not groggy or sleepy or anything so she is fine but her head is HUGE! Her little cousin said 'Wow, Jessica has a whole egg coming out of her head'. I started to panic that if she had concussion she'd have to have x-rays and then I couldn't go with her cos of being pg and then I'd have to tell the family (of course DH is out fishing and not home). In the end, nothing eventuated. She's fine today. I just give her nurofen every 6 hours cos she must have a headache. I'm starting to get seedy of a nighttime. I got m/s at night with jessica too so I'm taking that as a good sign. I'm tired plenty too. About 2pm I go downhill and then after dinner I fight back the urge to spew. So I guess it's looking good for me so far. I must admit I check the loo paper every time I wipe for any possible traces of blood. Can't help it. I'm terrified that I'll lose this baby too. I've been in tears over it. I try not to think about it but I just keep thinking what will happen if I lose this bub?

    Love Jayne

    Awww Jayney - big hugs to you. I completely understand the fear you are feeling. As much as I am desparate to be pregnant, I also am terrified about getting pregnant and going through the loss again. The miscarriages were traumatic enough but I am not sure I will ever be able to relax and enjoy a pregnancy ever again. Here's wishing you sick sensations and agonising tiredness (in the nicest possible way!!!) I hope Miss Jess is better today and the lump on her head resembles less of an egg!!!

    Shell - AF is due Wednesday / Thursday ish. Last cycle was a little longer but the days I took clomid was later too so that may have changed things. Back to the days 2-6 drug days so I hope I am back to 28 days. Too scared to POAS. Hate the thought of failing again.

    Thanks Beccy - I am hoping to follow Jayne to the ark. I've been practicing my paddling too!!!!

    Hope everyone is having a lovely evening. Just about to cook dinner for one - DH is at work so it will be a simple steak and veg for me. Then to do the SC lamb for this weeks lunches!!

    Goodness me - 1 day away and ive missed so much!!

    Jayne - you have nothing to worry about my love. So far it all sounds very very good and the seediness at night is a v positive sign, especially if you had it with Jess! Me - Im in the middle of the tww - up for testing in about 6 days!!

    Beccy - we would love to join you over in PAML!! I hope its sooner rather than later. I love your u/s pic on your ticker - how wonderful!!

    Shell - yes oops on the bd for weeks!! Im sure you get my drift... Ive heard bd in the morning is v good for ttc!! Apparantley the body is very relaxed and recharged. I hope you catch that egg.

    Shan - oh I totally understand how you feel about your SIL. My BIL is getting married in 6 months and all his fiance talks about is having a baby and how they want one straight away. I hope she gets pg as soon as she starts ttc but I still really really want to be pg before her IYKWIM? She can be a little insensitive at times. But good on you for spending time with your SIL! An old wives tale someone told me once 'drink from a pg woman's cup and you will soon be pg'. No harm in taking the occasional sip from her glass, even when she is not looking

    Michelle - aww love Im sure they will remember Caitlyn's bday. She will always be your first born even if she was born sleeping. I hope you feeling under the weather is really you being pg!! Caitlyn will have to spread her angel wings when you do get pg so she can watch over her little sibling growing in your belly.

    Tanya - on the spotting. I think shipping yourself off to Dr's is the best thing. Maybe its a hormonal thing? But i hope it resolves itself real soon.

    Naomi - have you tested yet?? I really hope that through all the fog, a nice bfp awaits you!!

    Did I forget anyone?? Pls forgive me if I did.

    Me - sore (.)(.) have just set in - hope its a pg sign and NOT AF!! Other than that I feel pretty tired and still have bloated belly. Its so hard with pg and af symptoms being so similar!! I dont want to get my hopes up though.

    Im off to my mums now for a coffee (naughty I know but I need one cup a day!).

    Have a great night and maybe chat to you lovies soon,

    Lisa

    So Lisa - what day are we testing??? Considering you and I are almost on schedule should we synchronise our joy / sadness / combination of the two!?!?! He he he. I can just imagine setting the alarm etc!! I *think* I will wait this time but I hear you about the (.)(.) and the other symptoms being the same for AF as a BFP. I am hoping my angel (Caitlyn) is sending me her sibling as we speak - otherwise I am in the middle of a lovely virus from work!! Ready for bed already and I had 11 hours sleep too.

    I love the advice for Shan. Maybe spending the week before ovulation with the 3 babies born around when Caitlyn was due will do the trick for me too!!!
