    OMG, I don't know if it's the hormones, but I am getting seriously good vibes from this thread today! I'm fully buzzing, I'm so excited! I don't know where to start!

    Lisa, I am STILL crossing everything for you. Any chance that was an implant bleed? Do you record/remember your bding? I am BUSTING to know what's going on with you! I so so so hope that you're pg! Please keep us updated And thanks for your beautiful post, very moving.........

    Kate, I'm so sorry for you hon, sounds like your Sunday was ****. It's so frustrating when your cycle goes on and on.........Sending you so much babydust for your next cycle! Mind you, it ain't over til the red lady arrives! BTW, way to go on your diet! You should be very pleased with yourself. If you're sure you're not pg, get on to some Nurofen for that tooth, it's the best for toothache. Is it just sore when drinking cold stuff, or hot things too? Hope you're appt goes well, make sure you mention there's a chance you may be pg, so they give you the right LA.

    Paige, I have found the Discover HPTs to be fantastic! (The ones that say 'test five days before your period'). They gave me a clear, defined line before any of the others. It was still faint, but I wasn't thinking 'is it there or not?' IYKWIM. Fortel Ultra are very good for early testing, but I only ever get a faint line on them, which is very frustrating! Crystal Clear aren't bad for early testing, Confirm and First Response gave me NADDA! The Lullaby HPTs are good now, but not for early testing. HTHs! Thanks for the tip on 'mothers drift'! I have already been warned that if I think pg brain is bad, wait for new mummy brain! Something to look forward to LOL! GL with the TWW. It is a bit easier when you can post and vent in here, the gals are so understanding.



    Sarah, I'm so glad your ultrasound went well! I will def be checking out the details in PAML!

    Kez, it was five weeks after my d&c that I got my first af, and it couldn't come soon enough! I hope the witch shows her face soon sweets!

    Shan, what's going on today?

    Kelly, all the best for tomorrow. I will be thinking of you

    Big 'hi' to everyone else, sorry I just can't keep up today!

    Well, I got my admission forms etc from Frances Perry House today, which makes it all seem quite 'real'. I want to get really excited, but i'm not letting myself. I'm being very CC&C about it all. My first Ob appt is Thursday week, 05/10, and I think that I will have my first scan about 20/10. He will send me for one at 8 weeks, so it depends on which dates we work off! He may send me sooner, I don't know yet. Only ten days to go YAY! I told them at work today, and they were very excited for us which was sweet.

    I can't wait to log on tomorrow night to see what's been happening........I will log on later tonight jsut in case someone posts something exciting!

    Until then, Sez xoxo

    ok girls im totally freaking out now, about half an hour ago i POAS using the ovulation tests a faint line started coming up and is still there. AF isnt due til Thursday, and i know with my history i should wait til friday before testing and using a normal pg test, but im one not to get a 2nd line on the o test unless ovulating, so im totally freaking out! Should i test tomorrow with FMU with another O test (i have so many of them and no pg test!) and see what that says, then wait til friday before testing again with a pg test?
    I do have the "signs", but as most of you know that doesnt mean much to me, although i fell 'different' but that isnt to say it af disguising herself iykwim.

    Ok better go before i completely freak out, I havent even told Rick there might be a chance i am yet letalone i tested!!! OMG

    Naomi, this time and last time I got a faint + on an OPK when I was pg! I didn't get a + on a HPT until four days later though, so you might be in for a wait! Sorry I can't help you more than that, but let us know what happens! How exciting! BTW, if you are pg, you can always pretend to Rick that you think you might be pg and then test, without letting on that you already have tested. That's if you don't want him to know........GL hun

    Hello lovely ladies,
    It's all pretty action packed in here at the mo.!!

    Lisa-- Are you sure it's not implantation spotting?? Have you had anymore yet today??

    Shan and Apes-- Bloody AF (pun not intended!) You'll just have to partake in a few glasses of vino (why not if you can) and try to focus on your new starts.

    Sarah-- great news re: your scan-- they can be so daunting-- don't know how I'll cope next time I'm in that position?!

    Sez-- Glad it's all becoming a "reality" for you. It can be hard to allow yourself to be happy after previous bad experiences but you are doing everything you can from your end so you just have to hand your fate over to whoever or whatever and live in the moment. Why shouldn't you be happy? You deserve it so just go with it!

    Kate-- Congrats on being minus those 2kgs and on having what sounds like a very CLEAN house!! I unfortunately spent yesterday in the same state as your hubby! Why do we drink?? It doesn't help either that I am a pathetic "two-pot screamer" when it comes to wine-- oh well at least I'm cheap.

    Megan-- Hope AF comes soon. I'm pretty sure if it takes what your doc. considers to be too long there is something they can prescribe to bring it on. I know you've been told a bunch of times that what you are experiencing is normal but at least you can keep that thought in the back of your mind as a back-up plan if AF refuses to cooperate.

    Paige-- Goodluck not losing the plot too much during your TTW. I won't be too far behind you as I'm at cd12 now. We'll be able to freak out together!

    Kelly-- I have everything crossed for you for your scan tomoz. I'm sure your little bean is in there pumping away and doing all the things it's supposed to do. Sending you some "grow baby grow" vibes. I totally understand your anxiety though-- it's very hard to put any bad past experiences out of your mind.

    As for me, I visited my GP today to look at my test results. They've all come back completely normal-- which i know is a good thing but it just leaves so many questions unanswered. Why has this happened to me twice? Is is a forgone conclusion that it will happen again? I'm not even preg, again yet and I'm laready so worried. At least if they had found some kind of anomalie (sp.?) they would have something to work with next time. My other prob. is that all this info. is really out of my GP's league-- I do have a specialist appmnt but it's not until November-- seems soooo far away right now! One thing that i did notice was that my progest. levels seemed on the low side 3.2nmol. I'm not positive where I was in my cycle as it was only a few weeks after my D&C so I've asked for another blood test on cd21 this cycle. I've read alot about low progest. levels and miscarriage. Anyhoo-- trying not to dwell (hard when everyone around me is preggers).
    Any info you guys have about testing, progest., etc would be appreciated. I am slowly losing the plot in my desperate search for some kind of answer!!!

    Thanx Sezjm
    It is rather interesting, i really dont know what to think, i did another one about an hour later and got another line, this time it came faster and a tad (only a tad) darker. Im going to go and buy 2 tests, and do one Wednesday and then one friday if AF hasnt shown up.
    If i am pg im taking your advice on Rick lol.
    How exciting having your appointments booked, so very exciting and real! look forward to hearing more. You will be fine, just take it easy and you will get there! Im so excited for you! xx (i'll be excited for you! lol)

    Hi girls!! Just a small woo hoo for me - FABULOUS dark lines on the OPK on Friday so after a very *entertaining* weekend with DH I have everything crossed that something *positive* will come from it (yes I know, I'm nuts )

    Sarah - I am doing OK. The TWW I find exciting for most of it (even if it seems to go on forever). I am also resigned to the fact that this is all out of my control. DH has good swimmers, I am ovulating (and doing it well) so one day they will get together and get it right. In the meantime, I am trying to think of a special way to spend Caitlyn's birthday. And a P.S. for you - I am so very happy your scan went well!!!!

    Lisa - I hope your body sorts itself out soon so you can get an answer. Let us know how you are doing!!

    Tanya, how are you going?? I still have everything crossed for you too, that you will be announcing a BFP very soon.

    Oh Michelle, that's great news! Your sperm and eggie will have to meet up for sure, you've given them no chance not to by the sounds of it LOL! I can't wait to see what happens in two weeks......... for you sweets!

    Awww - thanks Sez!! I am hoping to quickly follow your lead. And yes, the eggie was given NO CHANCE of escaping this month!!!

    Hi Kazz - good to *see* you. I'm doing well - much better at the moment. I think a fabulous weekend with DH was just what the doctor ordered I can't believe Declan is 6 months old already!!!!!! Time really does fly fast (and he is soooo cute too)

    Hi girls

    Michelle, wooohoo a +++ OPK!!! Always exciting!I am sure you will be pg veery soon!

    Naomi, A line on an opk really doesn't mean a great deal unless it is as dark or darker than the control. You NEED to get yourself a HPT!! I hope the lack of trying has done the trick for you!!

    Thanx Kazz

    Not a lot going on here, just waiting for AF to LEAVE!! I am sure I had more to wirte, but as usual I have forgotten... I'll BBL

    Morning loves,

    Sarah - congrats on the wonderful scan! And pls dont feel like you cant post about your gorgeous bubs in here, we want to hear all about it! You are such a caring and sweet soul The book is called Healing with Angels by Doreen Virtue.

    Michelle - oh hun im praying like a mad woman that you and dh have done the trick. You sound much better though sweety, I hope there is happy ending to this cycle. Im sure you will think of something really special to honour Caitlyn's birthday.

    Naomi - hello there! I agree with the others, in that you should wait a few days and use a hpt and test with FMU. I hope its a BFP for you hun - fingers crossed!!

    Hope sweety big hugs to you...Im glad that your tests came back all clear but I know how frustrating that can be at the same time. I have a slight hormone balance (low prog) but have been given pure prog cream by my naturopath to help balance things out. Is there anyway you can get your specialist appt brought forward? Put your name down on the cancellation list aswell.

    Sez - frances perry! way to go.. thats where I'll be going - what a shame we couldnt be belly buddies and we might have been at FPH together!! Im so excited for you Sez..id have p'd my pants by now if I was you..

    paige - how is the tww treating you? I hope it all ends with a bfp!

    Kelly - thinking of you sweets, pls let us know how your scan goes. Keeping everything crossed for a strong hb for your little bean

    Megan / Kez - how are you two doing with the whole waiting for af thing? i hope she arrives in both your worlds soon. Hang in tight though, she's sure to show her face soon. Thinking of you both.

    Shan - where are things at with you sweety? How is the move coming along?

    Tanya - rest up now hun, cause when af leaves the building you will all that energy for the boy baby dancing! How did you go with the phone business with Alecia ( read it on another thread)?

    Belle - where are you sweety? I hope your ok, Sez is stalking your chart so I hope the temp rise means something good!!

    Kazz - thanks for dropping in on us sweety, I hope your boys are doing well and treating mummy very kindly!

    Jayne - hellloooooo??? How are you my UTD mate? hope your belly is growing nicely.

    Well me - Im ALL over the place. Still no af to report of (other than a few light brown/pink smears when I wipe), then there is the matter of me feeling rather sick, I was vomitting last night, and felt like crap. So I bit the bullet and did a hpt.. nothing buta bfn again. Im seeing my naturopath tomorrow so hopefully she can shed some light before I go off and get bt done. I really dont know when we bd with dh, as I dont keep track of these things but after this month - I am going to chart so im not as confused as I am now.

    Hope you are all having a great day and sorry if I missed anyone,
    Lis

    Good Morning Lovely Ladies!!

    Just a really quick post to thank EVERYONE for all the *good luck* vibes for my scan today!! Just quitely, I'm FREAKING out and I'm trying not to think about it all too much. At least I got some good sleep last night, so that has to be a good sign - I'm hoping that deep down, I know everything is ok - it's just so bloody hard.

    I woke up feeling extremely dizzy this morning and still feel a little strange. Had a little bit of trouble eating dinner last night and breaky this morning but did get it down. I'm sure it's just nerves and anxiety but I'll take it all as pg symptoms to help me relax and feel positive. If only I'd had a few good *symptoms* to run with, I'd be feeling fine but with NO symptoms at all (not even sore/bigger bbs) - I'm finding it really hard. Damn it!

    Anyway, enough of that - thanks again for all your support and I'll be sure to post this afternoon - as soon as I get back from the appointment!!

    Take care.

    Kelly xxxx

    Oh Kel - thats sounsd like a mixed bag of pg and anxiety. Try to take a few deep breaths to help you calm down a little and relieve some of your stress. No symptoms doesnt mean a thing missy. We will all be there with you holding your hand today, you will feel our vibes, and when you see that gorgeous hb on the screen you will feel all our love too. Thinking of you and keeping it all crossed til we hear from you later.

    Good luck sweety,
    Lisa

    Thanks so much Lisa,

    Man, I'm more stressed than I even realised - your post just brought tears to my eyes!! I'm an emotional wreck at the mo!! I think I'd better go get some fresh air and pull myself together. Our beautiful dog needs a good walk anyway (poor thing hasn't been for one in days), so I think that might be a good idea!!! Thanks again though, your post was incredibly sweet and I feel so much better knowing that you'll all be there with me!! I'll certainly be thinking of you all and can't thank you enough for putting up with my incredibly crazy stress/anxiety levels - its mad.

    Kelly xxxx

    Hello ladies,

    I'm at home sick for the second day in a row. I caught an awful virus and have been sick as a dog since Saturday...hence my huge temp spike on Sun & Mon, Sez...that was a raging fever! LOL

    I got a beautiful big fat second line on the OPK on Sat morning (darker than the control line as per usual) and DH & I managed to DTD. It was a champion effort on DH's part, especially with me looking like death warmed up! LOL I've never O'ed so late in a cycle before so who knows what's going on. But at least I know that I O'ed. I doubt we'll catch that sneaky little egg with just one BD but we can always hold out hope, huh

    I'm going to go and crawl back into bed now and catch some more z's before DH gets home. I'll try and get on to do personals when I'm back at work tomorrow.

    Thinking of you all, as always

    Much love & babydust
    Belle
    -xxxooo-
