    Hi All,

    Shan, Congrats on your nephew, thats very exciting for you. I am going to be an aunty again in a matter of weeks, its so unreal hey.

    Naomi, Im sorry that you are not pregnant but it does sound that your appointment went well for all your future pregnancies and that your doc is onto it now and showing a caring attitude. Im not sure what the free fluid thingy means?? How are you feeling about it all and waiting a month, im sure that this feels like forever when all you want to do is try!

    Amy, How are you feeling? You said that you are feeling a bit under the weather?

    Jayne, LOL at savings us all seats! I know that the toilet paper checking thing is a real pain in the butt...especially turning on the light, im sure that i did the same in fact i can remember getting up in the night and having a big swig of juice, waiting for Lucy to move before i could go back to sleep, being the complete nutter i am i did it about 3 times a night from memory lol but she came out kicking and screaming eventually. Hang in there next tuesday is getting closer, its so normal to be stressing about scans too, i had about one a fortnight with Lucy and i would always feel heaps better after it and then a few days leading up to the next one i would get all anxious again (well more anxious than a normal day lol) even if i could feel her move. Hang in there mate, just try to take one day at a time and everything will be fine and you will be holding that bub in no time.

    Michelle, How are you doing? I will echo everyone else and say that i hope that you are taking time to look after yourself (i am sure that you are) at this busy time for you. How are you feeling with AF?

    Lisa, You havent posted for days now and i am starting to get worried....where are you are you ok?

    Kirsty, How is things going with DH?

    Kazz, Hey again Matey, are all your boys better now? We are well thanks for asking.

    Hi to anyone that i have forgotten. I am ok..having a bit of a meltdown time...had 2 girl friends round for lunch today that i met since losing Katelyn (they lost their first babies too). We have all had our second babies now and its great to get together so that they can play but bloody hell i was emotional today and had a bit of a cry. Thinking about TTC all the time is bringing up so many memories about Katelyn (they are always with me in my heart but not always this intense IYKWIM? although i think about her a lot of times everyday i can remember the good times with her aswell IYKWIM?) and the fear of going through that again. Perhaps this is not really the right place to post this but i know that you guys understand me.... Thanks for listening, wishing you all a very happy day.

    Love Sarah xx

    hello to all my lovely ttc buddies,

    Sorry been MIA for a few days. Had a really busy weekend, and slept most of Sunday!! DH and I stayed up late last night and we had a really good talk about ttc and had a really good cry - ive been out of sorts with the edd almost here. All better now though.

    Kirsty - awww hun. Maybe dh needs a little more time? Keep talking to each other and make sure both your feelings are out there and discussed. I hope you get through this time and it all has a happy ending.

    Nic - my dear. I am so very sorry for your loss sweets. I hope the testing can give you some answers. Take care of yourself, and we are here for you if you need anything at all.

    Sarah - thanks for asking for me hun. Hope you are well.

    Shan - congrats on the new bub in the family. Its your turn now!!

    Michelle - so sorry af arrived!! I think we should all band together and drive her outta town!! Hope this new cycle and clomid does the trick.

    Shell - sometimes a break is good - and with your new focus on your body and the gym, you might just totally rest your mind and body and suprise yourself with a bfp! Stay in touch though sweety.

    Jayne - dont stress matey, all your signs sound sooo good. LOL at being happy cause your sooo sick!!

    Naomi - im so happy for you that your body is all a ok for pregnancy. I hope that now gives you some peace of mind and you can confidently ttc from now on!

    Tanya -- hope you caught that little eggy.

    I hope i didnt forget anyone, but I will be back to check on you all tomorrow and do some more personals.

    Me - well still no af. But still spotting (hey Tanya - this spotting business must be going around!!) I did one hpt the other day and got a bfn. So now I dont know what im going to do. I might test with FMU tomorrow. But I suspect that my body is trying to get back to my pre loss cycle. If no af and spotting continues into wed I will make an appt to see my dr.

    Good night and baby dust to all,
    Lisa

    Yeah.....i watched it Lisa, well most of it. I missed about 10 mins at the start, and just as they were preping her for the c/s, a friend of mine rang, and i missed the rest. Bummer....someone always tends to ring when i really want to watch something...

    LOL Lisa - not watching it but I am taping it!!! Will watch it later. DH was reluctant to watch. Things are a little rough for him at the moment (not to mention managing the hormonal clomid driven me) with the TTC path so I am sure it isn't something he wants to be reminded of. I find the programs give me hope but he doesn't. How annoying AF is yet to turn up. Mine has gone for the month so it is onwards and upwards to the joy of O!!

    I just wanted to thank all of you beautiful ladies for asking about me and telling me to take care of myself!! It means a great deal to have your support. I am working long hours but they are a nice distraction from the TTC journey. Plus I am enjoying work at the moment. The clinical challenge is stimulating my mind.

    Kazz - I had a special delivery today of the most beautiful, tiny, finely knitted little booties. They are just gorgeous - you made a grey day shine!!! And they arrived on Tuesday (a special sign for me - but odd for others!!!). Thank you so much. There will be a return package on its way to you tomorrow. DH sat them next to Caitlyn when they arrived so even he thought they were special. I will put them under my pillow tonight and pray for the blessing they bring.

    I'll get back to personals soon but until then - lots of sticky vibes for the pregnant and lots of baby dust for the rest of us.

    Lisa I watched that too it was really interesting, Hope you are doing well and that as I said before af sorts herself out asap. are you going to go to the dr about it?

    Shan That always happens to me too and its always right on the most interesting part or when you are really getting into 2what you are watching LOL

    Michelle Glad to hear that you are doing well, and that is so beautiful about the booties Naomi has a pair and they are just presious I hope they make all of your dreams come true. Its great that you are enjoying work atm always makes it a little easier to work long hours.

    me well I have been feeling like af is just around the corner my sore back has eased somewhat thankgoodness and now we are another month closer to ttc so that is good too, well hope you all have an absolutely lovely day today
    for you all

    Just popping in again to wish you all good luck on your TTC journeys

    Nic - I am soo, soo sorry for your loss. I don't know what else to say. You have had such a rough time. I truly hope you get some answers soon so that when you decide to try again there might be some sort of plan in place. Have your Drs cosidered trying asprin/clexane for next pg?

    Kirsty - special hugs to you too. I really hope you and DH can sort through this and come to a decision that you are both cofortable with. Loss of a baby does put so much strain on marriages it is unbelievable. I know my DH was very anxious about us trying again for fear of how we would hold up as a couple. Don't ignore your own heart - honestly, will you ever be truly happy if you don't try again for another child?
    Make sure your DH knows that too - I don't mean that to "bully" him but how is the future going to be for you both if you are still longing for something you can't have.
    Hopefully the specialist appt at RWH will help put things in perspective. Maybe if there is "medical plan" in place for the next pg, DH will feel more comfortable about it all. Best of luck for you both

    Michelle - just wanted to send you big hug - sorry this round of clomid didn't do the trick - hopefully next time will be the "one". Glad to hear work is a good distraction

    Naomi - glad you got the all clear from your scan. "free fluid" just means fluid floating around in your abdominal cavity. There is not meant to be any (so good for you that there wasn't) - its presence can have lots of causes eg peritonitis,ruptured cysts, bleeding internally etc etc. Sounds like a good plan to let your body sort itself out before TTC again. I hope the next couple of mths fly by for you!

    Sorry to everyone else - hard to keep up with this thread but hope you all get that precious BFP very soon!

    Hi all,

    Michelle - Im glad work is going well for you. You sound much happier today And hoping that this month is the one for you!! God knows you deserve it. Ive been a bit down past few days as the edd is coming up in 10 days and im finding it difficult to cope, so yes I agree, having such wonderful support through bb does really help.

    Amym - before you know it you will be ttc and pg!! I was right about the show! Given the way ive been feeling lately, I made a decision not to watch it.

    Me - af has finally arrived this morning in FULL force. My pre loss cycle was 30 days ish with af always arrivning on 22nd. I really think my body is trying to go back to that, with today being the 19th. I will wait and see what happens before i see my gyno.

    Have a great day sweets,
    Lisa

    Morning Girls,

    Well it has been an eventful couple of nights.

    Rick has again changed his mind on TTC, I want us both to be on the same committent level (as im sure you can understand), which we obviously arnt at atm, we have now (i say we but i ment i) put a hold on ttc, im planning on going back on the pill, and bring in the use of condomns, just to make sure, Rick says he doesnt want kids now for a year. again its the finacial reason.
    Its fustrated the hell out of me, aswell as put me on another emotional rollercoaster, cos i get yes one min and then a no the next. The last thing i want is to fall pg and him no wanting it iykwim.

    I so desperately want our own bubs, but im not willing to do it on my own, but i dont know if i can wait iykwim, i said we would start ttc at the end of this yr beg of next yr so that way by the time we have bubs its been a yr, iykwim, but now thats on hold to...
    and im finding it hard to cope with, not knowing when he will be ready.

    Just when i got the all clear too.........

    So its unfortunate girls but i will be parting ways with you in this thread and all over ttc threads, i dont think its fair on myself or the other girls to participate on the ttc threads when im no longer actively ttcing. And the fact that I just dont know when and if we will ttc again.

    But dont worry im not leaving BellyBelly, and i wont stop stalking all your progresses. I'll be around and never far away......
    Take care everyone, loads of love hugs and baby dust to you all
    You have all helped me tremendously, cope with life and ttc, i never would have thought i would have coped with a few issues but you have all held me up, thankyou. xxoo

    this is just a see you around wave, followed by a bugger it lol

    Oh Naomi my sweet,

    I really hope that Rick changes his mind about waiting a year to ttc again. I know how much you want a little bubs, but I also know how important it is for both of you to want to ttc. Give him some time and yourself a bit of a break too and maybe you can talk about it again in a couple of months and re evaluate your situation.

    I hope it all works out for you possum, and I really enjoyed chatting to you, I hope you will drop in to check on us every now and then and let us know whats happening in your life too (not fair if you can stalk us without giving up info on yourself )

    take care lovey,
    Lisa

    Hi girls

    Naomi - I hope the near future brings you the results you want. It is so hard TTC with both of you in 100% so I can only imagine the distress when you are both on a diferent time path. Make sure you pop in here and let us know how you are going.

    Lisa - what is your actual EDD?? It is a very difficult time but (in my experience anyway) the lead up to it was far worse than the actual day itself. Try to take some special time for you and DH to remember your baby in the way you feel is appropriate. I went to Mass (not a usual experience for me but it felt right at the time) and lit candles at home. I also cuddled Caitlyn (her urn anyway). DH was on nights which was even harder but we spent time together in the days after.

    I completely understand about your body trying to go back to its usual cycle. I am usually 28 days exactly but I am currently 30 days. This has brought me back to a Saturday AF which is where I was pre-pill. I am happy too - the downs when AF arrives are hard to manage but that does go away (or ease) and now I am back in the hope stage where anything is possible. Sending you a big hug and know that you can email me anytime if you want to chat.

    Meredith - thank you so much for your hug. I'm hoping the clomid will (finally) work too. Are you feeling better?? I hope you are and back to enjoying the movements of that beautiful, sticky, stubbourn, growing bubba!!!

    Sarah - Huge hugs to you. I empathise with those very difficult emotions. I am desparately wanting to be pregnant but it doesn't take away the fears. It is the biggest decision - just making the plans to TTC again. And yet, to be pregnant takes away that special link with Caitlyn. At the moment we share an experience that is unique and that will change when I am pregnant again so where does that leave her?? I want to be pregnant, but I don't want to lose that connection with her. This is part of my morbid and dark thoughts that I rarely share (too weird for most to manage). Please feel free to email me any time you want to chat and don't feel like this is the forum (even though the girls are fabulous!!).

    Kirsty - you need a hug too!! It is so hard when you and DH are at a different stage. My poor DH would love us to be pregnant again, but even so, the TTC journey is possibly more difficult for him than for me. He has to deal with me (and that isn't always easy!!) and the disappointment each month as well as knowing there is nothing he can do additionally to get pregnant. Probable more important for him (he's medical too) is that when we do get pregnant, it is back on the rollercoaster of the unknown path where he can't do a thing to make it safe for me (and a baby). Men have a desire to protect and *fix* things for their family. Pregnancy is such an unknown and it leaves them feeling vulnerable and weak (which they aren't). I hope the RWH gives you some answers and a plan that allows DH to reconsider the TTC journey.

    Jayne - You make me laugh (and yet fearful - the loo paper checking all night makes me worried .... about me when I get there!!!!) I hope you are still feeling absolutely appalling (in the nicest possible way of course). Roll on Tuesday and the scan.

    Bel - look at that ticker you clever thing!! I hope you are well.

    Nic - a big hug. Know we are here for you.

    Jan - good to see you back (although taking timeout for you is good too).

    Amy, Shan, Kazz, Nola (and anyone I have missed - sorry!!) I hope you are having a lovely day.

    Truckloads of babydust for all.
