    Ahh no, nerves are driving me bonkers lol. It doesn't matter what I go in for, I always get nervous going to the docs and this time is no exception lol. I will get to find out how my PCOS is going hopefully in two weeks with the drop of 20kgs I am hoping for some good news compared to last years... so, so nervous.



    Aside from my selfish post, how are you all going? it is too soon to appt time to do perssies but I will later on

    Hi Ladies

    Just a quick one from me as the MS is horrible today and I think I'm getting a cold, so the couch is my best friend lol.

    I had a good cry last night, which cleared up my thoughts and made me realise 6 weeks is perfectly ok considering I've been having cycles of 50-60 days since the m/c.

    I managed to schedule an OB appt for next tuesday, and was going to go to my GP today to see if i could get bts done, but realised I won't have the results back by the time the appointment comes so I've decided just to wait it out. The brown spotting has stopped, I still feel sick, and my bbs still hurt, so as long as this continues.. I think I'll be ok

    Thanks for all of your reassurance! You guys are brilliant!

    Morning sickness means your hormone levels are high and is said to be a really good sign of an established pregnancy MsKara!!

    As crap as it makes you feel it also makes you feel sorta happy knowing it means the baby is well!!

    Oh gosh, too many posts to catch up properly but will have a go from memory:

    Clairesmummy: sorry for your loss. It's hard no matter how early it happens. You think of what could have been. I think we can all relate to that 'dying to be pg' feeling. I hope your cycles get back on track quickly and the next BFP sticks.
    Iona: hope you are feeling ok.
    Ms Kara: great to hear your good news. Hope this little bean keeps sticking.
    Alice: Wow, a big month coming up for you. Will be thinking of you. Keep us posted.
    Dory: glad to hear from you even if less often. 31 weeks and counting. Fantastic!
    Bons: Your symptoms sound so promising. FX for you.
    Forshelby: yucks for the vommies! But hopefully it's a good measure of stickiness!
    Reet: Your trip sounds great. Yeah, travel insurance should cover it. I know what you mean about trying to plan things when you don't know what's going to happen. I've been trying to work out what to do. I keep thinking i'm going to have a baby so have put off decisions like about my work. I've finally decided that i need to go ahead as though i'm not going to be pregnant and if I do get pg i will work around it.
    Kelbel: Hello lurker!
    Loops: sorry AF showed up : (
    Mum22: Getting to the BD part of the month. GOod luck!
    Kezzy: spotting must be very annoying. Neither here nor there. Hope body behaves for you soon.
    Damprye: wow! You must have worked so hard to lose that much weight. I admire your will power. Hope Dr appointment goes well.

    Sorry if i missed anyone.

    AFM: Got 2nd BT results back. HCG has gone down from 147 to 54. My Dr still thinks it should be lower and still wants me to see the oncologist for a consult but i'm feeling relieved that at least it's quite a bit lower. (I was scared it would be the same or not much different). I've had lots of AF type pain the last few days. Very tiring and making me freak out something is really wrong but dr thinks it's still from the mc (my body trying to finish things). Have been in a bad head space the last week. Scared there's something really wrong with me and i'll never have another baby or worse. Why do i have to have such a freaky body? Other people have babies without these dramas right? I know you all know what i mean.... why did we draw the short straws?

    just ducking my head in quickly.....

    possum i thinks its crazy your gp wants you to see a specialist still with a hcg of 54, personally i'd be refusing as i think its not necessary, it had dropped so whats the big concern, i'd just have another one next week and see, i didn't have any done with 2 of my m/c to see if it was dropping !

    Sorry to just be dropping in so briefly again, I really need to make some time to do some perssies.

    Drs appt went ok. I have my referral for my scans and another for my bt. If there is no sneaky bubby in there then I will be having an even bigger break in TTC my doc has put me back on Duromine for my weightloss and it would be VERY bad to get UTD on that (it is basically legal "safer" speed). So I am crossing my fingers that somehow there will be something in there by the time my scan comes around (still havn't set a date lol) that way I wont have to wait up to six months to start trying again, although I really should lose the weight first *sigh*.

    Hi all, well I am back in the land of living once again OMG I have been so crook I just wanted to curl up n fade away, I have spent the last 2 days snuggled in my doona on the lounge with DD keeping an eye on me every 5 secs until DF came home from work. AF has kept her regular days appearance for me even though she was a week late, a little clotty this time around but the same as per usual for her but usually no clotting. Definately not a heavy flow this time around which is normal and only lasting 4-5days. So I will keep doing my temp in the mornings and counting my days and as of now I am leaving it in the higher powers hands so whatever happens happens.
    I hope everyone else in here is doing really well and will catch up with you all soon, thank you all for your words of kindness and support. Trying to catch up on housework and washing atm, yay what a fun job that is.....NOT.....lol

    Minniemouse: i had HCGs tested because i was still bleeding on and off 4wks after i started (even with medication to 'clear me out'). Dr seemed to think that HCG should be down closer to zero with having so little left of the pg in me. He's a cautious dr and i think he just wanted a specialist opinion to be sure that there's nothing nasty causing HCG to stay up a bit. BUt he reassured me that 'it's just a chat' and the oncologist won't put me on medication unless i really need it.. I think my dr just wants to be sure everything's ok. But i don't know... i think there must a range of experiences across women and not everyone has their HCG drop in 2 wks just like it is 'meant' to do. I'll go to the consult but I'm thinking that i probably won't need to take any medication but instead get another BT in a week.

    Clairesmummy: get well soon.
    Kellbell: Good luck catching the egg!
    Bons: good luck for testing!
    Mum22: just reading about preseed... makes me start looking forward to when i can try again (Oh goodness, am i crazy!!!)

    Reet - We're planning to go to Melbourne in October. I should be about 18 weeks by then. And no, DP doesn't want to find out the sex, so obviously I have to go with that! I don't mind though, a surprise will be worth it. Almost time for your bd bonanza! Yay! And yay for preseed, too. I was going to buy it, but decided to wait in case af was a no show. Same as the OPKs when I ran out. Turns out I got lucky bigtime! Like I said, this is your month, so I reckon the preseed will be your ticket to mummydom.

    Mum22 - It's not so much the taste of toothpaste that bothers me right now, it's more the act of brushing. Although I always did gag a bit brushing my teeth... no idea why, I just choke!

    Bons - Good stuff throwing away DH's smokes... though, you'll surely cop it for that! Maybe some gentle nagging would work better... lol.

    MsKara - You're so lucky to be able to curl up on the couch when your ms hits. I find myself staring into space and rocking back and forth on my chair at work when I feel it coming on... lol. Must look like a crazy person!

    Possum - I'm learning to cope with the ms now... I've just accepted that sometimes I throw up, and it's less horrible that way. Good to hear your HCG is dropping, albeit slowly. You're doing great, hun. I also understand what it's like to wonder why I got the raw end of the deal. I don't have an explaination, but these things just happen. It's nothing you've done. This may or may not help, but I always say, when something bad happens 'you make it a weakness, or you make it a strength'. Situations are all relative to how we react/handle them. And you're doing just beautifully. We're all proud of you for the way you've faced this head on.

    Damprye - My sister took something similar to what was prescribed to you, (I don't know the name of it) and she said it was tough. Wishing you luck with everything, and I hope you get your sneaky BFP so you can avoid a long wait in ttc!

    Kellie - G/L with your TWW! And tell your DP to suck it up princess! lol...

    Clairesmummy - You poor thing, I hope you're feeling much better soon! Try to catch up on housework slowly, it can be overwhelming when it gets behind. Take it easy!

    AFM, nothing out of the ordinary going on, still have ms, still crazily hungry, still getting uninvited and unwanted advice. I find the advice the worst part. Only from this one guy who I find incredibly patronizing. I mean.... he's a MAN. I doubt he has a clue what it's like to be pg. Sure, he has kids, but he wasn't the one who carried them! He's taken to giving me dirty looks when I eat things he deems 'unacceptable'. He had the hide to start hassling me because I had my first can of coke in over a week! One can of coke isn't going to hurt anything! I even humoured him and tried to explain that, but he just rolled his eyes, because apparently he is the god of pregnancy and knows all. Agh, I could just slap him! (hmm... am I irritable or what?!) Right now though, (despite he who knows all's advice) I am letting my tummy choose the menu! If I crave it, then I'll have it. I figure if it stays down it was a good choice, lol. Any ideas on how to shut the know-it-all up? It really does grind my gears the way he pipes up with his stupid comments. Like my baby is any of his business anyway! AGH!

    Woah, long post there. I think I needed a bit of a vent! Hoping everyone is well, and getting closer to their goals, be it weightloss, a bfp, or simply to be well again.
