    Just a quick one today. Flu has hit me (too much work with germy people) and I feel like cr@p. AF was sooooo heavy yesterday I felt like I was bleeding to death (sorry - TMI) but today has almost stopped so at least they are still efficient even if I haven't been going to acupuncture. Back on the clomid so fingers crossed for 5th time lucky.

    LOL Sarah at the breast increase. I am 14E so I was the same - please don't grow!!! Goodness only knows what letter they could get up to with that head start.

    Lisa - wishing you a BFP but if AF shows up I'll be with you for the next round of the journey. Fingers crossed you'll start the flow over to the PAML for us.

    everyone else and I'll chat tomorrow.

    Hello Again!

    Well I've just returned home from the funeral I had to go to and am feeling a little emotional still. I had forgotten how terribly hard funerals are to get through and it brings back so many emotions from loosing my dad all those years ago. Nevertheless, am glad I was there for my friend - she's doing really well.

    Anyway in response to your question Sarah, the tww is going ok. I'm still not sure if I've even O'd as I haven't really tracked anything and since my d&c, I'm all over the shop. I just can't seem to work the whole CM thing out either but lucky DH and I are loving the extra BD'ing so I'll pray that we haven't missed it. I'm just trying not to think about it all too much and will try and wait as long as possible before testing.

    I've also just found out that I have to head over to Sydney again next week with work. I can't believe it - I only just got back! Not to worry, I should only be gone for 2 days this time, so all is good.

    Well I guess I should try and enjoy the rest of my day off work - might go and lie on the couch for a few hours and wait for DH to get home. Thanks for all your advice in regards to DH aswell, I'm sure I'm over-reacting about it all, am probably just emotional because of my friends dad and reading too much into it but will ensure I have a good talk to him tonight and make sure he's ok with it all. I just need him to understand that I'm not telling you guys anything that I don't already talk to him about anyway!!! I'm worried he thinks I'm keeping things from him. Poor darling!

    Lots of love and *babydust* to you all. Talk soon.

    Hi girls, sorry, no personals tonight. It's way too late for me. My little brother just got back from tour, he's been away for 12 weeks, so we had family dinner tonight to catch up with him. Very happy to see my little bro again!

    Thanks for all the congrats on af arriving! Never thought I could be so happy about it! Really starting to get excited about ttc again.

    Thinking of all of you, even if I haven't got the energy to sit here and type it all out!

    BTW, if my DH knew how much time I REALLY spent on here, he would think I'm crazy!!! I think I'm addicted now! I know, I know, I was warned!

    Hi Girls

    Finally got my temp rise!! I still think I O'd Monday. Have you have heard of the method of sitting on a hard surface and feeling a pain in your lower ab, meaning you are about to O. Well I bounced up and down on a chair on monday and it was veeery painful!! Plus the ewcm I had yesterday was a bit scant. Whereas the day before it felt like I had wet myself. Oh well... I just hope the job has been done.

    Sez, what does you Bro do?

    Kell, sorry to hear about your friend dad... just awful!!

    Michelle, so sorry you have been hit with a bout of the flu!! I hope it passes quickly.

    Kate, how did the drama's in the office pan out? Nothing too serious I hope.

    Sarah, what cycle day are you up to? Any signs of it arriving any time soon?

    Lisa, I hope it was implantation stopping!! any more signs!!

    Well it is my brothers birthday today, he would have been 28 today He passed away in 1999.

    I have to go and buy some gifts. We have a Japanese high school student coming to stay for a week tomorrow.

    Morning all,

    I hope everyone is ok today and that the AF pains (for those that have them) aren't that bad. I have some good news....AF has arrived!! WooHOO!!!! I did a step class at the gym last night so it must have been all the jumping around that I did. Now I'm back in the game..lol...I don't think I've ever been so happy to see the old girl

    Kelly, hugs ... I know funerals drain you...so sorry for the loss. On the upside you could come and have lunch with some of us Sydney gals if you're going to be in the city...and we could organise a bit of a meet up...

    Sez, how exciting to have your little bro back. Where has he been on tour?

    Michelle - sorry for the flu...that sux. All the germ infested people should stay home. There's a couple in our office too.

    It's a funny thing about boobies...lol...my girls don't need to get any bigger...they enter the room before I do...I hope nobody's grow too big...too quick...lol

    Right I'm off...got work to do...*sigh*

    luv & hugs,

    Kate x.

    Hello my sweets..

    Well my dreams of a baby this month gone out the window! Af arrived in all her glory this morning I am disappointed but I am so angry with my body - normally I get some soreness and fullness in bbs a few days before af, but then they disappear just before af hits. Well I still have sore and full bbs and af arrived, not usual for me, but I guess its one of those things.

    I bit the bullet and made an appt to see a 'natural' fertility woman, who has helped a few ppl I know achieve pg, given I only have one tube I need all the help I can get! My appt is on the 23rd.

    Michelle - we gotta get outta here woman! I think our cycles are almost back in sync again, I hope its all part of the grand plan to make us belly buddies.

    Sarah - IKWYM about your body behaving badly! Hopefully you will be able to pinpoint O time and send the troopers in get that egg!

    Sez - im sure its so great to have your brother home. I know when my brother was away for 6 months I couldnt wait to see him, I cried and cried when I saw him at the airport!

    Kelly - im sorry about your friends father. Im sure your friend really appreciates your support and being there for her. I hope your feeling better too. DH will soon realise what a great support network you have here and will embrace bb and leave any 'unsure' feelings behind.

    Kate - thanks for your well wishes, but as you can see af arrived (argghh she is such a cow!). How are you doing matey? Did all the drama in the office get sorted?

    Keen - matey looks like your in the lead in getting over to PAML this month, we need to have someone graduate, Im really hoping and praying you get your bfp this month. How are you feeling?

    Belle - yipeee for you sweets, I cant wait for you to announce a bfp very soon. So have you got a ttc action plan or will you just bd the nights away and hope for the best? Good luck missy.

    Tanya - have you O'd yet?? I wish you loads of luck for the upcoming bd fest - sending you loads of baby dust and 'boy' vibes...

    I hope I havent missed anyone

    Gooooood morning ladies!

    Kate, welcome to the group! I was hoping you would join us when you felt ready. You couldn't find a lovelier bunch of ladies to share the TTC journey with Here's hoping that AF arrives for you very soon so you can start TTC again!

    Kelly, it's great that your DH is coming around to you being on BB. If you keep the communication going I'm sure everything will be just fine. Wow, you sure do a lot of travelling for work! Do you love it or do you get tired of it after a while?

    Tanya, the supermarket OPK's are expensive huh? I just ordered 20 from Fertility Naturopath for about $20...and it comes with two HPT's too. Hopefully you will catch the egg this cycle and won't need to buy anymore OPK's!

    Lisa, honey I think your symptoms sound GREAT! My bb's grew an unbelievable amount long before I even got a BFP. I had an implantation bleed at 12DPO too, so I'm hoping that that's what you've had! Are you going to test???

    Kirsty, I hope you're well sweetie!

    Sarah, are you still waiting to O? It must be frustrating having long cycles, especially because it makes the waiting seem so much longer! I'm feeling really positive about TTC again. It's funny but I'm actually REALLY excited about it! I think I'm even more excited about it than last time! LOL

    Shan, we've all missed you sweetie! How are you going? Please come back in and say hello when you have time. We're all thinking of you too

    Michelle, you poor dear! I'm so sorry to hear that you're battling the flu AND AF is being nasty to you. I'm sure it'll be 5th time lucky for you, honey.

    Sez, it's funny how excited we both are about AF arriving huh! LOL I was almost as excited when I got a BFN after my D&C. Who would have thought I'd ever be celebrating about getting AF and a BFN?! LOL Let's hope that we both have normal cycles from here on in!

    I'm just waiting to O. Hopefully my OPK's will arrive today so I can start using them. DH said to me last night that we're going to BD every single night this month. LOL Gotta love a man who's as enthusiastic about making babies as I am!

    He's been spoiling me rotten lately. He bought me an iPod Nano last week with a gorgeous pink leather case so I have something to listen to on the train every day. He told me this morning that he bought me two pairs of strappy sexy shoes from Victoria's Secret which should be delivered by the end of the week. AND he's flying me to the Gold Coast for the weekend (gotta love being married to a pilot!) Now tell me I'm not the luckiest girl in the world?! LOL *sighs*

    Love & babydust

    Lisa so sorry that AF has arrived for you, & feel free to vent away any time you like. That is what we are here for to help you through this often frustrating TTC Journey.

    Can I jump on the Ecup boobies line?? I am so hoping that when I am pg next they so don't get any bigger.

    Huge hi's to everyone else, I am still here lurking mainly & popping occasionally. We are now on a countdown to our specialist appt, only 20 more sleeps to go. And just 5 more sleeps until my little man's 4th birthday.

    Lisa, we posted at the same time. I'm so so sorry, sweetie. I really thought that you'd done it this month I hope that the natural fertility woman can help you out. Does she use herbs or acupuncture? I had a girlfriend who'd been trying for 4 years to fall pregnant. She went an saw a naturopath and was pregnant 3 months later. I've heard so many great stories like that...these people seem to create miracles! Go and spoil yourself today, honey

    Tanya, yay for the temp rise! I hope you caught the egg, honey!

    Kate, WOO HOO for AF arriving! Now you need to get a ticker so we can keep track of your cycles! LOL I hope that AF is kind to you this month. Are you going to chart, use OPK's, etc or just go with the flow?

    Have a great day everyone!

    Love & babydust

    Tanya - oohh I hope you did the trick missy, sounds like you O'd nicely this month!

    Belle- thanks hun for your sweet words. OMG how spoiled are you?? Enjoy it and you have to show us those shoes!! I love shoes. Good luck sweety, hope the OPK's arrive in time and you have great success.

    Thanks Kirsty, looks like we will be on the ttc train together after all!! Hoping you dont stay long though (I mean that in a good way )

    As for the bbs, well blessed are those with big hooters, but ive always had little apples, since my loss last year they have grown susbtantially, and heres to them getting even bigger when I do get pg!! I'll be wearing the lowest cut tops etc when Im pg! Im going to be one of those slu**y mummy's hehehehe.. when youve never had big bbs, you make the most of it when they do grow a little!

    LOL Lisa...you make me laugh...slu**y mummy... ...that';s the spirit...get the girls out to play!

    You guys *frown* I can't keep up in here there's far too much going on for my brain to handle. ha ha ha ha...

    Well, yesterdays office drama hasn't gone away...somehow I've gotten dragged into it and have a meeting with a HR person this afternoon. I'd like to know whatever it is that I've done...bloody women...none of them in here are acting like professionals...more like a bunch of girls in a high school playground! I'm hoping to play Switzerland in this....

    Lisa, I'm so sorry that AF has arrived. I've organised to have her beaten up for you.

    Belle, I'm charting...doing everything I can to make it work this month. Day one and my temp is 36.5...have to do the chart tonight when I get home as we don't have access here. And I'm glad I came to visit with you guys, I'm getting comfortable with the whole process now.

    Sorry to all that I've missed...I'm really really trying to keep up.

    Hoep you're all having a good day,

    Kate x.

    Kate - thanks hun. PMSL at beating up af for me! You go for it girl! I hope everything settles down at work and things get resolved without too much hassle. I hope all your charting etc pays off with a bfp! Im glad you feel comfortable here, and dont worry you will get your head around everyone soon enough, it takes a little while. I was a confused chicken too when I first started, but there weren't this many of us then.

    Really gals, we need bfp's in here....we need to clear this thread!!

    Oh BTW my fertility woman called and had a cancellation and Im going there today, she is in the city and around the cnr from my office! Yippee - hopefully she can give me some herbs etc to start me off given its day 1 of my cycle. She does herbal tonics and accupuncture (I know someone asked me this - but dont remember who)

    Hello Everyone!!

    Wow, I really am having trouble keeping up. Just when I thought I'd worked it all out!! It's fantastic though, what an amazing group. Thanks so much for all your kind words and nice thoughts - I'm feeling much better today and just found out that I don't have to go to Sydney again next week afterall - yippie!!

    Tanya - I'm so sorry to hear about your brother - bithdays are so difficult when you've lost someone! I hope you get through the day ok - I'm thinking of you! I also hope the tww isn't too bad for you!! Good luck with the visiting students!

    Kate - Thanks for suggesting the catch-up, it would have been great to meet you but I am releaved that my trip has been cancelled, I hate being away from DH.

    Lisa - I'm so sorry that af arrived and hope you're appointment goes well - let us know?

    Belle - Lol - you make me laugh but it's so great to hear you sounding so positive (and great to hear DH is spoiling you and as enthusiastic as you are!!) Enjoy the trip to the Gold Coast!! As for me, I really don't have to travel much with work, it just seems to sound that way at the moment, so I can't complain!

    I'm afriad I have to cut this post short as I have to go into a meeting, so sorry to those of you that I haven't included. It's so hard to do this at work!!!

    Take care and to everyone with the big bbs - send some my way - I can't wait to fall pg and get some cleavage happening!!!!

    Lisa best of luck with your appt. I went to a naturopath when we were TTC with James & were in our 2nd year of TTC after going to OB's & using clomid. I fell pg after 10mths with her & I think she cried as much as I did when I went & announced it to her. I'd seriously consider going back to her but she moved to Melbourne (boohoo)

    Kirsty - Im a believer of trying everything! I know many people that have had success this way so I figure it wont hurt, and im wrapt and getting an appt today! I will let you guys know how I go (but might not be able to get back on until tomorrow am). One of my close friends went to her and was pg on the 4th month after ttc'ing for two years. A bit of foul tasting herbs and accupuncture wont kill me I suppose. Im looking forward to it, I know its only been 8 months since our loss but given I only have one tube I want to make the most of my chances with the good side iykwim?

    Thanks gals for your support, hope you all have a lovely arvo.

    I so know what you mean. I took yucky smelling liquid herbs twice a day plus ones that looked like ball bearings once a day & had acupuncture once a fortnite & as far as I'm concerned it worked & that is all that matters to me. Wishing you every success Lisa.
