    wowsers there's a few posts to get through this morning... Is everyone enjoying their hot cross buns today? HAPPY EASTER to all! I've decided that I won't be buying any choccies for sunday cause I've eaten so many during the week!

    Liz Since I had the D&C I really struggle with pregnant woman, and why do they think I want to hear all about what they are going through!? It's kinda weird though because when I was pg too I was all to happy to hear all about it but now I want to punch them in the face or at the very least snap at them to shut up! Oh I've been very impressed with myself not loosing at them. Hmmmmm?

    Hannah I would have found it very challenging to work in maternity. You will have your own bub soon, YAY

    Jen I am so happy you are the chart whisperer!!!! today I was sure I would see a temp drop or a rise but no it has been the same for a few days now... Hopefully tomorrow there will be a shift one way or the other. ohhhhhhhhhh I just want to be pg!!! I want us all to be pg!!!!! hooooooooooooorah for Hannah to give us all hope xoxooxox

    Re getting a scan done asap, I agree we should all demand them My ob told me to come in at 8 weeks next time rather than 11 and I'm sure I could go even earlier if I wanted to.

    Re having to go back and tell everyone you are not pg anymore That I think would be one of the hardest things to do. I've mentioned before that I am thankful we didn't tell anyone and next time round we wont tell anyone for as long as possible, maybe even 20 weeks if we can get away with it!

    AFM I feel like crap today (physcially) I feel like I'm coming down with a cold/flu... If this were happening a week or so from now I would be very excited as when I was pg in Jan I felt like this... But I doubt it is the case this time. I'm also annoyed about it because I NEVER get sick and this is a sign that my body is more run down than I thought it was... I mean with all of my relaxing and pampering how could I possibly be sick! Hopefully it will be gone tomorrow.

    Oh I almost forgot... I guess I am officially on another

    Morning all!

    Im still keeping an eye out for signs i didnt ovulate where i thought, if its not one thing its another with TTC huh? Waiting to O, not beliving that we have when it says we have, waiting to temo every day waiting for test days then not beliving the tests whatever the reason is so testing again and again until either result is confirmed

    I am wondering if anyone here has had a breast reduction before? Or knows of someone who has? Im getting one to go from 8-G or 10-F to a c or a d cup. Im not too phased about the breast feeding thing because I dont really mind either way (might be selfish).

    Just testing the waters and seeing any feedback

    COCO -
    i had one, I had serious back pain from being way too out of proportion for my body.
    I was told breast feeding shouldnt be an issue, I had mine 8 years ago and the scars aren't even noticeably now. I do know that every time I got my period or anything like that I was in SERIOUS pain from the scars streching so consider that time wise...

    Sally - yes, it has an LCD display as well as an audio speaker. It is not the cheapest one of its type, but I am really glad I invested in it as it is working really well They also sell them on ebay, but it worked out cheaper to go with the other company due to cheaper postage.

    Sally: Do you mind me asking what size you went from and to? You can PM me if you like.
    Also how much did you pay and did private health insurance cover anything?

    Hi Coco, I don't need a breast reduction but a girl was at my work yesterday talking about getting one... she was a teenager and her mother hadn't really looked into it properly and her daughter was in so much pain she should join a health fund today!

    I know some health funds do cover breast reduction. I know mine does and that is even on the lowest hospital cover and you would get to have the operation in a private hospital with the specialist of your choice. Any operation which is medically necessary is covered (the specialist would determine that) and obviously if you have large bb's it is impacting on your health so it is therefore necessary I am with AHM on top hospital (to have bubs in a private hospital) from memory the basic hospital cover was not very expensive, only thing is there would be a waiting period (check with the fund what that would be). There may also be an out of pocket expense for the specialist too (depending on who you choose) but only a few hundred I would think. HTH

    Re the roller coaster, I am right there with you! I dont' know what my body is doing??? Thought I would see a temp drop on ovulation day but haven't had one, but all my other signs look like I've ovulated

    I'll most likely be back later, not doing much today, just reading....

    hi there,
    just a quick one from me for now. thank you to everyone who wished me luck for yesterday. I am glad to say that the tribunal is over. the tribunal member awarded our landlord $160 of his $1800 claim (i think that what it was.. somewhere between $1200 - $1800 i think lol). The only part he could actually claim was about $600 as the rest were costs involve with the tribunal and with tribunal each person has to pay for their own costs if it is below a $10,000 claim... so I am super happy with the outcome. I have paid my ex landlord his $160 and I am hoping that this is the end of it. its funny, at the conciliation hearing I offered $200 so that we wouldn't have to go any further with it and the landlord declined.. so he ended up with even less and the tribunal member basically told him that he was being unreasonable and he should be happy because we left the place in better condition then when he moved out - but he did award him carpet cleaning and 2 days rent.. he didn't award another 2 days rent, water costs and cleaning costs (or the excessive claim for expenses relating to the claim) I was so happy and still am. Finally that stress is out of my life and I can look forward to my bfp and know that i won't have to deal with any more problems from him

    Liz - just wanted to offer you a quick welcome. im so sorry for your losses and it is such a hard time. after my 2nd m/c I had a lot of trouble seeing pregnant people and people with newborns.. but after the last one i seem to be much more at peace with it for some reason - sounds weird! I do still have bad days.. I don't handle AF (or RB ) very well... when the witch is around I turn into a bit of a witch too and last AF I felt so much hatred for pregnant people I even said to a work friend that I wish i could take a pin to all those big bloated pregnant bellies just to see if they popped when i pinned them - of course i didn't mean it but i was definitely not handling another month with no bfp very well. so i know where you are coming from, as do most of the ladies here. I wish you a speedy bfp. *hugs*

    happy easter everyone xxx

    Hey all,

    Just lurking at the moment.

    But wanted to say - welcome to Liz & sorry for your loss and yay! to Boble for the tribunal hearing to be over and haha to the greedy landlord who should have taken the $200 in the first place!

    Still no AF, but I had a look at the last month & AF visited on CD 36, so I am assuming she might come on Sunday (great!) as I have low abdominal cramping. I thought she'd come sooner since I am on meds from the naturopath, but I think my cycles are still being sorted out from the m/c & spotting afterwards. Oh, well I guess she'll ruin my long long weekend.....

    I'll try to come back on Sunday or Monday

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry for not posting lately, I have been lurking but just too tired to write anything coherant!

    Will try to catch up.....

    Boble - So glad the tribunal hearing went well and even better that it only cost $160. Now you can go back to working on getting that BFP! Hope it happens soon.

    Rhi - I hope you are wrong and AF doesn't show and ruin your long weekend. Better yet I hope she doesn't show at all for say, 9 months!

    Jen - I'm with you, who did come up with AF? I am definitely in favour of calling it RB! I completely understand what you mean about demanding an u/s. Although my FS is lovely and said he will send me for one pretty much straight away just to try and ease some of my anxiety. Gee, I really hope none of us have to wait much longer

    Liz - Welcome but so sorry for your losses and that you have to be here at all. But if you are unlucky to be going through it you couldn't be in a better place. I'm sorry I can't help with the clomid question but I'm sure someone will. From memory I think erybery may have conceived using clomid but I'm sure she will see your post and reply. Best of luck

    HannahD - I know it must be so hard but try not to second guess the way you are feeling. I think after all we have been through I don't think any of us can predict the way we may feel when we fall pg again, no matter how much we may want it. Jen, once again, put it so well in her post. And don't feel bad for venting here, we all want to support you anyway we can to help you through your pg. I know you will be here cheering us on when our time comes

    Fifi - Not long to go now, you may get an Easter surprise much better than chocolate!

    Shortcake - Goodluck with the moving.

    Possums - I hope AF doesn't show so you don't have to go through IVF again but if you do just know that it will all be worth it when we are holding our forever babies in our arms.

    WTH - So happy to see you enter the 2nd trimester. Don't apologise for not posting, I can imagine how stressful the last 12 weeks have been. The doppler sounds like a great idea, think I might invest in one when the time comes.

    Mollycat - AF doesn't show and she keeps away form you for at least 9 months!

    cherished1 - Best of luck for this cycle.

    MO3B - How are you doing sweetie, haven't heard from you in a while?

    Megsmum - 23 weeks - wow! So, so happy for you Thanks for still lurking and being here to support all of us.

    coco - Hope you caught that egg! Sorry can't help with the breast reduction question, my sister got it all in that department

    Sally - I agree, what your sister said wasn't exactly the best thing to say. My sister has been a bit the same. She has had 3 healthy children and never had a problem falling pg and never suffered any losses. Whilst I am so happy she never had to go through what I am sometimes I get so crabby with her for making insensitive comments - she has no idea but I know she has good intentions and her heart is in the right place.

    Big hi to erybery, charm, sunny, tam, plc, AJC, tutmae, mannie and anyone else who may be lurking. I hope I haven't missed anyone.

    AFM - Not much to report, still in the TWW and driving myself crazy. Still using maybe baby and Sunday was the only day I had really large distinctive ferns so I think it was definitely o. That was CD16 so hopefully that means I will only have a 30-31 day cycle. Been a bit sad of late, just feeling very impatient. I know this is only the 2nd cycle since my op but it feels like a lifetime. I would like to look at IVF now but DH is resisting as he wants us to try to fall pg naturally for a few months first. I guess that is fair and makes sense. Plus if we tried IVF at the moment and it didn't work I don't think I would cope very well. Just have to keep looking ahead to August and if it happens before then (which I so hope it does) even better!

    Happy Easter to everyone. Hope Easter Bunny is kind to all of us and spreads some BFP's around this thread.

    WTH--I've missed you and hope to see more of your beautiful avi around here! How nice to get 2 u/s per week--that should help keep the zen vibes flowing!



    cherished--Is your thermometer a new one? Looked up "flat temps" on ff and it said that the thermometer or the battery could be the culprit. Sorry to hear you're coming down with a cold... hope you feel better for Easter!



    coco--I have to shop for bras in the girls' dept! So can't really help with that one! I have back pain, but it's definitely NOT due to breast size! LMAO...



    boble--Congratulations on an excellent tribunal verdict! I knew that it would turn out ok--karma always works itself out! $160 out of $1800 is pocket change! A huge HA! and nanny-nanny-boo-boo! that he got less than what you offered to begin with! Now moving on towards the next goal: a BFP!



    Rhi--I hope that [email protected] RB doesn't show up with the Easter bunny! Hope you manage to enjoy your Easter!



    Mel--Try not to drive yourself crazy during your TWW. Easier said than done, I know.... I'm sorry things have been rough, it's completely understandable--especially now that you've had the op--that you would be feeling impatient. Just try to remember that you can't rush perfection, and when you're holding your little one in your arms, it will be SO worth the wait--I promise you!

    fifi--Sending lots more easy labor vibes! Maybe you'll get an early Easter present this year!

    Morning my lovely friends

    Jen Yeah Baby I hope you o in a few days and that it's as exciting as mine was Just getting those 2 lines on the OPK was enough for me hehehehhe

    Thanks for checking the flat temp thing... It is new actually and I have only used it to chart one other cycle in Jan, in fact when I got it I used 2 the thermometers for about a week just to make sure they both said the same thing lol... So I think it's working PLUS today I got a large peak so I must have o'd somewhere in there..... I'm so happy about it and technically we should get a BFP, I just hope my lining has thickened up enough to hold onto the little one if we do. the tww will drive me insane.

    I've gotta ask everyone, at the start of each cycle do you get way ahead of yourself and workout when the due date would be if you get pg in that cycle???? I know some people don't like to get carried away with stuff like that in case they are disappointed but not me I go way out there and beyond imagining everything!!! SOOOOO having said that if I do get pg my due date would be Christmas day (if you take 40 weeks from the D&C) OR it would be New years eve (if you take 38 weeks from O, which I think was on the 9th... will see what ff says?)

    I forgot to mention that during my fantastic weekend last week when dh gave me a massage I told him that I hadn't been into the babies room since we found out that we had lost them... So we went in there together and I cried (of course). I had actually taken all of the clothes and nappies etc out of the room because my dad had come to stay and we werent' ready to tell anyone yet; I hadn't had a chance to put it all back before our 1st scan so it has all stayed packed away in another room. DH asked me yesterday if I could put it all back... I asked why and he said becasue he missed it awwwww he is so sweet, we used to go in there and look at it all etc... So today we are going to put it back together with excitement that in less than 2 weeks we could be pg again!

    Hope everyone is doing great XoxoOOXoxoXoXOx

    Hi Liz,
    I concieved my baby this time using clomid after a natural conception last sept. I was on 50mg and it worked the first time. I have endo and PCOS and had extremely long cycles where I never ovulated. in fact after my m/c in Oct my AF never returned so the Gyn put my on the mini-pill for 7 days twice a day to induce AF so I could start on the clomid. He wanted to make sure I had a cycle to clear the lining. I did not use OPKs but had a day 21 bloodtest that showed I had ovulated, though I was 100% certian I had as I had terrible pain from my right ovary on day 14. My Gyn said if I didnt ovulate the first cycle on 50mg he would up it to 100mg the following cycle.
    So I know I havent really answered your question! Maybe you could ring your doc to see what he thinks/recommends? Best wishes for this journey!

    Hey all!

    Just letting you know, cos I know that you all really want to, that AF or RB whatever the h*ll you want to call her is at my house! So if anyone is looking for her, give her about 4 days and she'll be on her way. I knew she was coming and alas she was my alarm clock this morning (what a gem waking me up!) Anyway, so looks like we are back into DTDing like mad in about 5 days time, mind you I am with you Jen, need to find my mojo! hehe!

    Eliza - My cousin had a breast reduction oooooh, lets see years ago - can't even remember when. She had it in a private hospital due to health issues - chronic back pain and I think from memory she was a 10G or something like that and they reduced her to a D cup? I think they only go down so many cup sizes. For instance, you couldn't go from a G cup to an A - IYKWIM? She had some down time but she never complained about pain that I can remember. I think she was just so glad to be free of her back pain. Not sure about the bf issue, but she doesn't have kids.

    Mel - Praying you get your little natural bubba soon. xx

    Cherished - oh, yeah all the time. Obviously since I am not pg this month, I will be due to have my baby in the New Year! haha!
    I think setting up the baby's room is really good. I used to be supertiscious about buying and displaying baby stuff, but I think it is better to surround yourself with positive thoughts & things to bring your dreams to reality!

    Well, am off to enjoy some of this weekend, even if the sun ain't shining here.

    xx

    Rhi - Sorry AF found her way to your house! next month is the month for your BFP

    Cherished - You are not alone - I look ahead and imagine things like that all the time. I used to look up my possble due dates but I have stopped myself from doing it the last few months as I felt I was jinxing myself. Although I had a peek this month and if I get my BFP I would be due around the 28th of December! I usually always imagine telling our parents and seeing their reaction as I know they will be so happy and excited. I can't wait for that day. Unfortunately we were keeping TTC a secret when we first started and we hadn't told our parents we were pg before we m/c so we had to tell them all in one go which was pretty devastating for them. They didn't even know we were trying. I know I have rambled on but wanted to know you are perfectly normal and I am kind of gald I am not the only one that tortures myself Mind you I think it is nice to have hope and look towards the future

    Jen - You can't rush perfection - that's a lovely way of looking at it and so true . Whilst I truly believe that we will hold our forever baby one day sometimes a small part of me worries that it may never happen. I'm just being silly I know, can I blame it on the hormones even though I'm not pg? How are you doing? Have you made another Dr's appointment yet? I am keen for you to ask them about the blocked tubes!

    HannahD - Hi, hope you are feeling ok
