    Michelle - You are so wonderful, thanks for all your kind words, not just for me but for everyone. As for Caitlyn, she will always be your firstborn, and you will forever have a connection with her. Being pregnant again will help mend some of the pain but it can never replace her or your connection. You will always be her mummy.

    My edd was 29 July - and I think you are right about the lead up being so difficult. I think in the coming week I might take up your offer and email you.
    dh has suggested that we do something special on that day. We are just deciding on what to do.

    will do more personals and catch up with the rest of you tonight,



    have a great day..

    Lisa

    Lisa - we named a star on Caitlyn's due date so every February it will be in the sky shining over us. My nephew believes people who die are stars so it fits nicely. But ultimately if you and DH are together then that is all that matters.

    You are more than welcome to contact me at any time.

    Hi everyone

    Michelle that is just beautiful about the star what a lovely thing to do, I am glad you are feeling better today I hate when af shows up it sends our hormones all over the place.

    Lisa I hope you are feeling ok and please know that we are all here for you diring this tough time I am thinking of you and your dh.

    Naomi I agree with what the other girls have said give Ricki some time to diegest everything he might change his mind, and although it is a horrible thought and I wish you were ttc now but a year is not really that long ( sorry I know that is a horid thing to say just trying to make you feel better ) big hugs for you sweety and you know that i am here for you whenever you need me or to give my brother a smack in the chops LOL *mwah*

    Hi to everyone else I hope you are all keeping warm and well

    Hi All,

    Michelle, i am so glad that you are feeling a bit better now that AF has left the building, here's hoping you wont see her for another 10 months! Thanks for your kind words, i really thought that things would be easier for me with pregnancy after i managed to get Lucy out without any complications but it just doesnt appear that this is so. I would email you but i dont know your address mine is [email protected] I also totally understand what you are saying about being pregnant again taking away a little bit of your link with Caitlyn, i felt the same way before i get pregnant with Lucy and i also felt a little bit guilty about being pregnant again (it didnt help me that i was pregnant again quickly before Katelyn was even due but thats another story). I can tell you with my whole heart that being pregnant again will not change your bond with Caitlyn in any way. Caitlyn will always be your first born child/daughter and she knows this. I used to tell my Katelyn that i wanted to get pregnant again not to replace her but to have a little bit of the joy that we felt with her in our lives back again and it was because of the happiness that she brought us while she was alive that i wanted another child. i dont know if this helps you at all but i am sure 100% in my heart that you having another child will not change the bond that you have with Caitlyn. In fact out of all the scans that i have had (i had 1 a fortnight with Lucy) my favorite and the one that i remember the most is the 12w one with Katelyn (it was at her 18w scan we found out things were wrong). So even though you will create new memories with a new baby your memories will remain strong with Caitlyn in your heart. Anyway i wont go on here email me if you want to chat.

    Lisa, My heart goes out to you mate, it is such a hard time leading up to your EDD. I too found the lead up worse than the actual day because on the day you can do something nice to remember your baby. Its great that you and your DH are going to have some time together, i too have a star for my Katelyn that is always clearly visable around her birth date but there are lots of other things that you can do, email me if you want to chat about things i know its a hard time and you need all the understanding supportive friends that you can get.

    Naomi, I was so shocked to read your message and really upset for you, you have had so much to deal with already let alone having to put off TTC for at least a few months. You might not think it but you are incredibly strong and you will make a fantastic mother when you are blessed with a BFP again. Keep coming around darl as you know i just float around hoping for that BFP (lol at myself).

    Amy, glad to hear that you are feeling better.

    Hi to everyone else although bugger i cant remember what everyone said...my darling Lucy turned off the computer (i had a full box of copy paper in front of the switch) and i lost my whole post and cant remember what you guys said lol. Hope that you are all well and hanging in there on this tough journey.

    As for me my dad told me today that they might not be going away next year after all now (so where does that leave me with the waiting to TTC then lol) but they dont know whether they will or whether they wont.....hmmmm maybe i will just start trying for real and make up their minds for them lol.

    Catch you guys next week i am off to perth for a few days tomorrow arvo and i dont think i have time to make it on here in the morning. Big hugs all round.

    Love Sarah xx

    Hi guys so sorry but really don't have much idea where anyone is up to coz I've been so slack.

    To all who wished us well with our journey thanx heaps, DH & I have sat down & had another big talk & my session with the counsellor yesterday helped clear up a couple of things as well. Initially I had huge dramas with DH telling me he couldn't "deny" me another pg if it was what I wanted, anyway I had issues with the use of the word deny ~ made me think the worst. It wasn't until the counsellor said it is a thing done out of love for me, the fact that he can't make himself tell me that I can't have one more go at it if that is what I want ~ now I look differently at the whole situation! So we have been talking about my expectations from him in regards to travelling the TTC/ PG journey again & have sorted out loads of stuff. Now it is just a sit back & wait game until our appt & hopefully we can jump right back in. Made it really hard coz I've just O'd & all I wanted to do was DTD without the condom!! but common sense kicked in & we realise that September isn't that far away to wait after all.

    So again thanx heaps to everyone & I promise to try & get in here more often & keep track of where everyone is at ~ Sorry

    I think early October we will start ttc that way it gives us time for our private insurance waiting period to be over and we had planned for about a year after my last m/c as we didn't want to tempt fate again, so it wont quite be a year but 6 months I know that with in myself I feel better now and healthier too, its a little bit daunting but its really what we want to do.
    I think I will make an appointment and get a referal for an Ob in late Augst early september to make sure I have the all clear and go from there.

    Woohoo you'll be on that TTC journey before you know it.

    We were a bit the same, I am champing at the bit to start now but know we can't until we see the specialist in September & I just keep telling myself it is only a few weeks away (won't say months as that sounds sooooo much longer). So it looks like we'll most likely be starting at the same time. Here's wishing us both quick trips

    Kirsty,

    I hope the 'waiting' goes super quick and that getting the bfp takes even quicker! In the meantime, you concentrate on getting your body pg ready missy. That goes for Amy too.

    have a beautiful day,
    Lisa

    OH Kirsty, I am so happy that things are working out. I only know to well the ttc journey, But come September it will be all over for you and you will be announcing a BFP once again to us all. I am not sure if you have posted any of your test results or not (if you did I apologize as I must have missed them), but if not I would love to know how everything went. As I think of you often and just never get around to asking. Even if you dont want to disclose that is fine and I totally understand. Just make sure you are back in the paml before I leave and that is an order OK!.

    A big hello to everyone else. Hoping and trusting that there are a lot of eggies getting caught and that we see you all over in the paml thread with Meredith, Jayne and I along with all the other wonderful Ladies in the very near future.

    Love to you all
    Nola & Treacle.

    Shell - OMG I was thinking about you about an hour ago!! I was just hoping that you were okay and doing well now that your not officially ttc. Good on you for sticking it out at the gym. Im pretty lazy like that, but dh said I should get back to my excercise as it will make me feel better and more energetic (I think he secretly wanted to tell me that the 7kg I put on is starting to show!1 LOL!)... You will have a hot new body in no time! Nice to hear from you sweets.

    Amy - awwww your so sweet! thanks lovely , I really hope this is my month too - hoping for a little gift from my angel who was due at the end of this month, roughly when I should be getting ready to O.

    Im so glad you joined us before your official ttc journey - its like your the new Naomi! LOL! How is that little possum anyway?

    Michelle and Tanya - where are you two hiding??

    Thanks Nola too for all your baby dust.... we are hoping to ship at least one more off to PAML by the end of the month, I just dont know whos up for testing this week.

    Me - with all the spotting I had, AF is about to leave and its only the 3rd day. My cycle sure is weird. Ive heard drinking certain types of tea can help with weird cycles - but I cant remember the name - anyone know?

    Im having friends over for dinner tonight (for lasagne .. mmm) and then doing some housework tomorrow, and Im going to see a psychic (havent told dh yet.. he would be against it) but I feel like I want to go and see what my future will hold. I know you cant believe everything they say but I havent been and I feel the time is right. So i'll jump on tomorrow night and let you all know what she says.

    take care and hope you all have a great weekend.

    PS Sarah - hope your enjoying perth!
