    cherished-Another job might also help keep your mind off of things. Good luck with the search.

    Rhi- I'm so sorry to hear your uncle has passed. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Jen-Hope your weekend went well!

    Sally-Sending you lots of AF Vibes!

    boble- Glad Af isn't being too terrible for you!



    smi- Your ticker is moving right along! I'm so happy for you. How are you and bub doing?

    fifi- Glad things are going well. Keep us updated on you and bub.


    AFM- Sorry if TMI but had some light pinkish spotting since this morning when I wipe. I am praying that it is AF. At least then I can go back to temping and trying again.

    to everyone else

    Hey ladies!! Just wanted to pop in to let you all know that

    CHARLIE IS HERE!!!!

    Yep, our little girl arrived on the 26th after the dr decided to induce me at my appt on wed (they didn't actually get further than the ripening, though, and everything progressed naturally). She weighed in at 3.02kg (6.6lbs), 48cms long.

    Apologies for the lack of persies. I hope all of you are doing wonderfully!!!!

    Much love,
    Phoebe

    congratulations tut!!! Welcome to the world Charlie being an Aries is fabulous. March is a popular month my cousin had a little boy on the 24th and he's just perfect am so hoping this is my month too only a few more days til I can test. I must say have been very tired every day and have had very heavy breasts on and off but am trying not to be positive and hope we get a bfp this weekend if I can hold out. I did one test at 7 dpo and big fat negative but shouldve expected that it was only one week after O .

    Someone had asked me what an opk was boble? Ovulation predictor kit. They really work and I recommend them.

    Turned 38 yesterday and was spoil rotten by dh but couldn't help thinking not many years left of successful babymaking sometimes I wish I was 28 instead of 38!

    Fifi woohoo not long now just remember to breathe goodluck

    Babydust and stickyvibes to everyone hope this coming new month and this new thread brings lots of bfp's!

    Question

    Mannie Happy birthday

    Girls I was going to do a poll on how long people waited after mc or D&C to TTC and see how many were succesful (but you can't do pols on this site) however I can across another thread which some of you had posted on and there were some success stories of conceiving before getting af back and having a healthy bub at the end. Have any of you heard bad stories such as people conceiving straight after a D&C but loosing the bub again? SO I am thinking we will just TTC as of next week... BUT than worried that we are supposed to wait ... Is there increased risk of miscarrying again if you don't wait? What the hell is the waiting for anyway???

    How long did you all wait???

    LORD I JUST WANT TO BE PG AGAIN AND HAVE HEALTHEY BUBS IN MY ARMS 9 MONTHS LATER!!!! Is that to much to ask??? If it is who else can I pray to???

    Easha - Congrats on your scan! Really happy for you. You also give me hope as I also m/c in Nov 2007 and nothing since.

    Tutmae - Congrats on the birth of little Charlie!

    Mannie - Happy Birthday! Glad to hear you got spoilt and hope this is the cycle for your forever baby.

    cherished - Sorry can't help with your questions as I had a natural m/c and we started trying straight away. I'm hearing you on the whole waiting thing though. Nothing like living your life in 2 week increments

    charm - I've never had much luck with OPK's but I think that was just me and my bad timing rather than the tests themselves. Best of luck to you.

    Shortcake - Hope AF is on her way so you can start TTC again.

    Rhi - Sorry to hear about your great uncle

    Jen - I think I recall smelly pencils when I was in primary school. Wasn't there smelly texters as well? When you think about it not a great invention for our kids to start sniffing things when they are that young Good work with the sewer line although I agree with cherished, should have been double time!

    HannahD - How are you doing?

    boble - I'm sure frozen yoghurt is 100% fat free!

    sally - I hope AF arrives soon so you can start to TTC again and you feel like you are being proactive and have some control (as much as you can on this journey anyway).

    smi - Yay - 20 weeks already!

    fifi - Best of luck, very excited for you!

    Big hugs to everyone I haven't mentioned (I think of you all often but being slack on persies today, sorry )

    Sending heaps of babydust and stickyvibes for the new thread (think I am out of smilies).

    AFM - Well, feeling a bit down today so sorry if I sound like a grumble bum. One of my friends is 13 weeks pg and she sent me an email today and attached her ultrasound pic. She doesn't know about us TTC or our m/c so I know it was not meant to be hurtful and although I am so happy for them, it just really, really hurts (iykwim). I would do anything to see that little picture on the ultrasound. My first and only u/s experience was an internal one as I didn't have a full bladder (damn hospital didn't tell me) and it was when they told me my baby was gone and all I could see on the screen was black. Something I will never, ever forget. Anyway enough whingeing. I will pick myself up and dust myself off and get ready to start all over again.

    Sorry for the rant, just feeling really cheated at the moment. I know you all understand x

    Mel - thanks for that (re the yoghurt) - it was yum!
    I hear you honey on the feeling down. Im so sorry that your only ultrasound experience has been a horrible one. I hate that black screen! just not fair Next time you will see a gorgeous heartbeat flicking strongly on the screen

    Cherished - wow, the similarities. My little BB twin
    Regarding the question about waiting. My m/c in July I had to have a d&c. I was advised to wait one cycle, so I did - but it was just Hell waiting for that month to be over. Last m/c it was a natural m/c and once the spotting had stopped we got straight back to it - didn't wait at all as I had been told that they only tell you to wait so they can pinpoint a due date better.. so I desperately needed to start back to it getting my forever baby - but I am not sure if it is a definite requirement after d&c. I hope someone else is able to help answer your question I think i would have trouble waiting in any case.
    Its not too much to ask hun and you will get there xx

    Mannie - happy birthday - im glad you got spoilt

    tut - congrats on your little girl - how exciting!

    shortcake - i hope it is af on her way for you.. and i hope she is kind to you and gets out of the way quickly so you can get back to ttc

    Jen - lol, you are right about the temping. It feels good getting back into it. I can't wait to see my lines moving along doing what they should be. I can't wait for O and to see the temp rise.. and hopefully stay up hehe

    Rhi - sorry to hear about your uncle

    AFM - well, i have started temping - yay! DH and I had a big chat last night and he asked me not to tell anyone, not even my online friends lol. I have real life friends on another forum, so once I explained that on BB they are all people "not in the real world" he was ok with it haha. I thought it was cute. He has been wanting me to get back to temping for a while now. I guess he likes being able to see things on the screen that he can understand iykwim - he feels part of it??? (more so then just the bd'ing stuff lol) when we woke up he even said "take your temp babe" how cute
    AF is moving along quickly, which is great.. Im hoping she will be all gone in the next day or so - yay!
    it is pouring rain here and we have a flash flooding warning... eek! I'm sure it will be ok - I am not in flood but my ex partner (and the house we own) are... if he needs my help to move stuff I will be there - last time I got a call at 2am in the morning and was there till sun up. It was very exhausting. Lets hope it doesn't flood! It will muck around with my temping :P

    I hope everyone had a good Monday hugs and kisses - Bel

    Hi Cherished,
    I thought I had posted, maybe not.....
    You are were I was 2 weeks ago and its such a hard decision cause so much is emotion!!!
    I was advised by the ob that I could start TTC straight away, not af needed.
    The fetal ab. Specialist said wait a cycle at least, but even suggested mutliple months.
    First was Male, the specialist was female. DH thinks the male disregards maybe more of the emotional and the female regarded the emotional above the physical readiness.

    SO....
    I read and read and read anything I could get my hands on and their was no reason why you couldn't but your chance of a miscarriage is much more likely if you haven't had a AF.
    Its based on the lining and how easily the baby can implant. The D & C 'strips you bare' to prevent infection so I do kind of get that....
    We decided, after MUCH talking and stress, to wait a cycle.
    Doesn't help now but my highly objective DH did say in 5 or 6 years time the month wont matter when we have beautiful kiddies running around.
    Plus he said it would kill him to see me in that pain.

    Each to there own,
    you'll make the right decision for you!!!

    Hope that helps, at all!!!

    Cherished -
    It is so annoying how it does actually make sense....
    Glad I could help, dont want to force my opinion on anyone buts that what I found out.
    Well have to be cycle buddies maybe!!
    I guess we all just need to keep our risks low after what weve already been through.

    Talking

    Cherished- After I had my D&C the doctor said we could start TTC right away. She said that the chance of me m/c again was the same whether we waited 1 month or 3. The only thing they worry about is not having a date to go off of. HTH.

    boble-Yay for temping again! I pray that this is the month you get your BFP.

    Mel- ! I'm so sorry you didn't get to experience a ultrasound. I pray that you get your forever baby soon.

    Mannie- Sending lots of vibes your way!

    Charm- Sending you lots of !

    tutmae- Congrats on your little girl! I cannot wait to see pictures of her!

    AFM- Well when I woke up this morning AF was here all in her glory. I think this is the happiest I have ever been to see her. I'm going to start temping tomorrow and I pray that we conceive this month and I won't see AF for nine more months!

    tutmae - Congrats on the safe arrival of your little girl Charlie . Can't wait to see some pics.

    Mel - You're always thinking of me. Thankyou sweetie. I, too, am haunted by the only ultrasound image I had of my pregnancy. My baby had already died, so all I got to see was this tiny, motionless white blob. I we both get to see our forever babies waving at us on the screen real soon.

    Easha - So glad your scan showed great results. Thanks for keeping us updated.

    cherished
    - Glad you had a great time shopping on the weekend. There's nothing quite like retail therapy. As for how long to wait after a D&C, I'm not sure I can help much. I waited one month because it took me that long to find the courage to TTC again. I was glad I did though, because at least then, I could be sure my lining had built back up. Goodluck with whatever you decide.

    fifi - Yay for finishing work! Not long now.

    Rhi - Sorry about your uncle. My thoughts are with you and your family. Did AF arrive on the weekend? I hope not and that you got a BFP instead.

    jen -

    charm - I hope you get a BFP this cycle.

    mannie
    - Happy Birthday for yesterday. I'm glad that DH spoiled you. I have all my fingers and toes crossed that this cycle is it for you.

    boble - My DH likes the fact that I'm charting now too. I think he feels he can be more involved rather than just having to listen to me second guess everything lol. Goodluck. I hope it works for you.

    Shortcake - I'm glad AF arrived (and without help this month too). I hope its the last time for 9 months too.

    sally - Sending you lots of AF vibes so that you can get out of limbo soon. You can have all of mine. I really, really don't want them.

    to everyone else

    AFM - The side effects from the meds seem to have mostly worn off. I'm only feeling slightly woozy every once in a while rather than dizzy with blurred vision all the time. I still feel tired and am not sleeping very well. But I was like that before the medication anyway.

    AF is due tomorrow, but since I didn't ovulate until CD18, I won't be surprised if she's a little late. I'm not sure if thats when I usually ovulate or not as this is my first month temping. But I've found that knowing when I ovulated has taken much of the anxiety out of waiting for AF to show or not. Or maybe its just the meds kicking in. lol

    cherished--DF is the skydiver, not me! He's actually 1 jump away from getting his license! I am going to do a tandem jump, possibly even this coming weekend, if it's warm enough! DF bid on it at a silent auction that we had at the school, and he won. I was supposed to go for my b-day, but it's been really windy here, and I'd rather go when it's warm. The weekend of my b-day was -11 degrees up there when they jumped from the plane! When I do make the jump, we're going to make a video, and I'll be sure to post it here for everyone to see!

    Just wanted to clarify that I didn't literally try to eat the smelly pencil--it's just so tempting because it smells like my fave childhood gum!

    It's so hard being patient when you have to wait to TTC. My dr. told me to wait 2 cycyles (natural m/c), but there was no chance I could wait that long! Although.... here I am, still waiting.... but at least I know I made a decision that I knew was right for me. I've heard the same as far as waiting 1 cycle after a D&C for the lining to thicken back up, but I also heard that you can have an u/s to check that... maybe that's something to consider? HTH!



    Shortcake--This is going to sound really, really weird but for AF! Best of luck with the temping--does this mean I'll have another chart to stalk?



    and *hugs* for charm & sally!



    Mannie--I don't know how I missed your post, but I did--twice! I kept wondering how everyone knew it was your b-day, and I didn't! Finally found it on the 3rd look, after I was convinced that cherished was psychic! LMAO... So a belated to you!



    Mel--What are smelly texters? I had never even heard of Smencils before! The only thing even close that I remember were the scratch-and-sniff stickers that I used to collect! I guess next time we may try the smelly bookmarks to see how those go.... I also like the fact that they're made from recycled newspaper (the pencils and bookmarks).

    I hear you on the u/s image.... how terrible that the only one you've had turned out the way it did. You won't ever forget seeing that image, but when you actually get to see your little one waving at you, that memory will begin to fade away. I've had my fair share of both.... I'll never forget my first m/c, which was a blighted ovum, and seeing everything exactly as it should be... placenta attached.... and that horrid empty sac. Then with my last m/c, she kept the monitor turned away from me, but then when she was done, left the image of my little one without a heartbeat... I wish I hadn't looked, but I couldn't resist. It's horrible, I'm so sorry you any of us would ever have to see something so tragic!



    OMG, have to leave in 15 mins to get DS to school! Eeek! Will be back later to finish, sorry girls!

    Hey all,

    Just a quick one from me as I am at work today and am flat out, but really needed to pop in and say hello to everyone.

    Just got a message on fb this morning from a friend in Sydney, yep you guessed it - she is pg! Well I am not too sad about this one as she had to resort to IVF. She is 10 weeks. I keep thinking that if I am pg this/next month then I will only be about 6 weeks behind her. I cracked and tested last night & got a BFN. I didn't tell dh though as I told him I would test from Saturday and he would have gone mad at me! I thought there might have been just a small feint second line, but no! I even turned the stick around and put it up to the bright light - so desperate I am to be pg. I was going through an old diary when I was pg with dd to see what signs and how long after af did I test. It was about 28 days, so I am a bit early, hoping that is the reason for the bfn, not b/c af is on her way. Sorry for the rant just feeling like this is never going to happen. So silly considering it's only been 3 mths after my m/c.
    Thanks everyone for their thoughts about my uncle. In a weird way I am thinking maybe he left this earth so I could get my forever baby?

    boble--Woo hoo, check out your first blue dot! I'm praying that all goes well with the flooding and your/ex's house! That's very thoughtful of you to be prepared to help if needed.



    Hannah--I remember insomnia being one of the side effects that bothered me with the Zoloft. Have you tried taking any OTC non-addictive sleeping pills to try to help you sleep better? Temping definitely helps take much of the anxiety out of TTC.... I know, for me, I can usually tell 2-3 days before AF is even due whether or not she'll be arriving. I think it's beneficial anyways to know what's going on with your body, but it's a definite plus for me because at least by the time she comes, I've had a couple days to deal with the fact that it didn't happen (again!) for that month--so while I'm always disappointed, at least I'm not devastated. So now that the side effects are beginning to wear off, are you able to notice any beneficial effects from the meds? I really hope that it works for you! for my little cyber sista!



    Toccara-- for my other little cyber sista! How's things going with you, hon?



    Angels 1&2--Thinking of you! Big *hugs*



    coco--I hope you're enjoying your time away! *hugs*



    erybery--Thinking of you--you and your little one are in my



    meh, jackjack, Greenslw, Rhi, mrzbaby, Abbey, kazaraz, Acria, buliej, Possums, Rmercimek, Samandpoppy, and anyone else that may be lurking that I might have missed!

    MO3B, Fi, & our newest member to join the gutter.... mollycat! Bravo, bravo, girls--we did it! Time to fill 'er in on our little pact, girls.... although she's quite good at typing with her nose! LMAO...
