    Just popping in to say I saw my bub's heartbeat today! I was so nervous driving over for the scan, thinking I might not see anything. But I saw the little flicker and bubs is measuring 5.5mm and 6w3d (which matches up with FF's ovulation date that it gave me) plus or minus 2 days.
    Last cycle I'm sure I had a biochemical pregnancy, with faint lines showing up and then an icky AF, so I was so happy to see a real BFP this time. So THANK YOU to everyone for sending *sticky vibes* over the past fortnight, it's meant so much to me.
    Good luck to everyone on the verge of O-ing and in the TTC or waiting for AF to arrive.
    Lots of love

    Kerry - that is fab news! Must have been a huge relief to see that wonderful little heart beating away. I hope things keep getting better and better for you.

    Janeo - Hugs to you sweetie... you poor thing, nothing worse than being in limbo land and not knowing what is going on. Have you been sick at all this month? Maybe your temps are all screwy because of something unrelated to you O'ing or not?

    Bun - hope the symptoms keep getting stronger, and you get a massive BFP soon to put your mind at rest!

    Kitten2b - Sounds really positive! Faint lines already must mean good things!

    Hi to everyone, else. Hope things are going well for you all.
    I am really starting to go nuts, and I'm only 6 DPO. I just dont know how I am going to make it through two weeks. Because I have not charted my temp on FF before it is recomending that I wait till 18DPO to test. I know my luteal is usually 16 days, so I have a long wait unfortunately.
    Ohhhhh! I so desperately want to be pregnant! It just feels like I have been waiting and waiting, and every month I get dissapointed. I'm sure you all have the same feelings. I keep thinking about this time next year, and hoping that I will have a little bubba with me, but then this time last year I thought I would have one now!
    Oh, well. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger!

    Love

    Leyla

    Loubell - Hi. I usually get snot like cm when pg. I am getting a bit this cycle too, but I know I am not pg. I put it down as creamy cm in FF.

    Janeo - Hugs hon. You must be so frustrated. Unfortunately you may be having any anovulatory cycle this month. I had one after my first m/c., and I think it was the 2nd cycle after the m/c. I have never had one since though. If the pattern persists I would see your doc (gee I sound like an commercial).

    Bun - After my first m/c my doc did a progesterone and oestrogen test to make sure my levels were ok. This bt is done 7 days before AF is due. It turns out that I had very low prog levels which caused a lot of my other probs such as pmt, fluid retention and cramps. Doc put me on natural progesterone cream and every thing improved heaps. He is know redoing the tests to see if my prog levels are still too low.

    Kerry - Wonderful news hon. All the best.

    Leyla - Hang in there. Just remember if you test too soon you may get disapointed.

    Anyway I am off to bed...good night all

    Saltprincess-the loo paper thing is funny. My DH said the other night that the 4 ply (that my Mum bought when she was staying) was too thick, and I said well if you had to wipe both ends you would like "soft" too. I was also thinking, well I am so obsessed with the paper I need something nice to look at. Good luck with af, and hopefully this next month is your month!

    BekZ- Sorry about the snot comment (TMI), but its great that you understand what I mean. I am not holding out that much hope that I am pg this month (not sure where my cycle is up to), but at least I know something is happening down there. Hopefully preparing for next month! My af is due on Friday (if my cycle is normal after the m/c), so will maybe start using FF next month.

    Bun- thanks so much for the welcome, and I too am crossing my fingers (and toes) for all of us. It is a frustrating thing waiting to be pg (again). I waited the first time for quite a while and then here I am again so soon! I am very impatient though. My husband and I both fight fires as part of our jobs and both spent 6-7 weeks away at bushfires over summer, sometimes doing night shift, so it was a miracle that I even got pg the first time really. It puts a bit of strain on your body firefighting and night shift, and we were often crossing paths, and not home at the same time much! Must have got it right one month!

    Congratulations Kerry- that is so exciting. Hope you are feeling great.

    Leyla- I feel exactly the same about the waiting thing. I feel like I have been constantly waiting forever, and you are right we will all be STRONG (but Id rather be weak and pg!).

    Hi to everyone else. Hope you are all having a good day. I'd best go and do some work.

    Morning girls,

    Well, I did another HPT this morning (after DH left) as I can't stand not knowing what is going on anymore. I got a clear, pure white BFN, which is fine, but I just wish AF would come so I could move on to another cycle. Actually, I am not ok with it, I am really struggling atm. I just don't see why it won't work out for us and I am so sick of this. I do everything right, so why can't my pgs equal a baby like most peoples do? I don't even know what you call this - I only got one v faint BFP and that's all, but AF is definitely late and I still have pg symptoms that are just not going away. As soon as I get AF I am going to ph my specialist and beg to be put on clomid rather than going through a tracking cycle first. I obviously have no trouble falling pg and all my other results are great, so the only reason for early failures can be hormonal, so clomid should boost the hormones and hopefully result in a healthy pg. I have irreg cycles, late O and a short LP, so it seems pretty obvious to me that clomid will help. I just hope he will put me on it. I bet he will insist I have a tracking cycle first which will be such a pain, and with my long cycles will go on for ages. I am so sick of waiting! Ok, I am done with my rant now.

    loubell - wow on the fire fighting! That must keep you guys busy. At least with summer over now you will more time together to BD!

    Congrats Kerry - it must be great to see your little one's heartbeat!

    rae - thanks for popping in. You are such a beautiful person.

    SP - yay on AF arriving!! Hopefully I will be with you soon! What is your psych's name?

    Janeo - so do you think you will keep trying despite your bf's wedding?

    BekZ - does your doc think that maybe the low prog could have been a cause of your m/cs?

    Hi to everyone else, BBL.

    Bun sweety - im really sorry youve had to go through this and wish you had some definite answers. Have you thought about trying Vitex to help with your LP and cycle in general?

    Im hoping your dr can give you some good advice to get you on track for a nice and sticky bfp soon.

    A big hi to all the other lovelies in here and sending you all tonnes of

    Just ticked over to noon... So good afternoon to all.

    Bun- Wouldnt it be nice if everything just went the way it was supposed to? I guess you sometimes start thinking, "What have I done so wrong?" I am positive it will happen for you.

    Janeo- I am sure if you were pg for the wedding, your b/f wouldnt be worried. Thats what friends are for hey?!

    Kerry- Thats great news.

    SP- Great on the AF arriving and certainly the mind does do some powerful stuff. Its good to hear you are doing mind exercises and it sounds like your psych is doing what they are paid to do. I will fling some positive vibes your way too. ( It will encourage me to be positive about me too)

    loubell- Welcome. Hopefully it will be a short stay in this thread.

    Shan- Hows the diet and weightloss coming on? I hope the noise we made didnt disturb you too much on the weekend!

    Sarah- I had a filling just before Christmas, it started hurting so I went back and he fiddled around. It didnt fix the problem so I went back a third time and he put a sedative in there. I hope your dental appointment goes well for you and good luck for after TWW.

    For everyone else I hope Tuesday is treating you well. I am on CD13 and waiting to O. We are also still trying to work out what tiles we are going to put down. So much dust in the house... but I have not blown up the vacuum again.... yet

    Afternoon everyone,

    SP - Good to hear AF is on her way. Now you can start afresh.

    Sarah - Hi and goodluck with your tooth

    Loubell - No probs about the 'snot" comment. In here there really is no such thing as TMI.WOW you are a firefighter, I really admire you for doing this job

    Bun - Hugs hon. Sorry to hear about your result. My doc did do the tests due to the miscarriage and because I was presenting symptoms of low progesterone. Some of these symptoms of include fatigue constantly, bloated, af cramps for 2wks before AF, heavy AF, inability to lose weight, mild depression, and long cycles. My cycles improved alot with the natural progesterone and Vitex and vitamin B. Not many docs believe in the natural progesterone so you may find it hard to get it. Maybe you could try vitex and vitamin B, this can take up to 3months to work though. Failing that you could try a reputable herablist to at least have a consultation with.

    Jen - Good to hear your vacuum is still ok.

    Hi girls,

    Well, I was just in the toilet at work crying as I don't know what is going on and not knowing what to do and then AF came!! I am actually happy to see her! At least now I can move on to the next cycle. This was my last chance at a 2007 baby though, so much for that. I also, like a lot of you I am sure, wanted to be pg by the EDD of what would have been my first, and that date is now rapidly approaching - only one or two chances left now.

    Anyway, tomorrow I will ph my specialist and beg to be put on clomid rather than go through a tracking cycle first. Wish me luck

    Lisa - I have heard about vitex but was a little reluctant to try it as I have heard of some people having shorter LPs after taking it, plus, I have only charted one cycle where I did not get pg and it was the first cycle after a m/c, so I can't be totally sure that my LP is short, or if it just was that cycle. I will def be asking my dr about it though and seeing what he recommends.

    Jen - I really do wonder sometimes what I have done to deserve this. I know it's just life and bad things happen for no reason, but sometimes I really feel like giving up, it all just gets too much. I will try to be more positive!

    BekZ - glad to hear that your dr has been supportive of NPC and vitex. I am taking vit B and have done for several months now as it was recommended, and although I mentioned to my dr that I may have a short LP, he didn't mention progesterone or anything. He did say that clomid could help boost my hormones and result in a stronger egg and thus a stickier pg, and I know that clomid can also help with long cycles and short LPs, so I am hoping he will put me straight on to that and find some success there.

    I hope everyone else is having a good day,

    Bun xx

    Hi All!! Gee you chicks can talk! What a read - it's great! Salt Princess, I had a similar pain to what you're describing when my first period returned after my m/c. It hung around for a couple of days while everything was quite "heavy" and then disappeared. Haven't had it since. And the thoughts that your next baby will die is just you being nervous which is completely normal. What's meant to be will be and you will get a beautiful little baby soon.....

    I went back to my OB for my 6 week check up and go the all clear so we are going to TTC again straight away. I just know we're ready - both in the same mindset which is great! Only thing is I missed the boat by 2 days for this month!! Oh well, straight in to it next month.

    Hope you all have a wonderful week.

    Bun - sorry about AF's arrival...but like you said at least you can move onto the next cycle. I hope you can go onto clomid straight away and that your special BFP occurs by your first bubs EDD like you desire. Thinking of you always

    have been feeling really down today, I was at a my best friends place today and out of the blue she just came out and said she had something to tell me, this friend is someone I feel very close too and even class her as being my adopted sister, when she read my sms she had car keys in hand and was going to rush to my side but her dh said no, and that my dh would be there with me etc, she said that she was more upset about my loss, than her half sisters loss 6 months ago.

    Anyway, she has a business partner who visits a phsycic regulary (every couple of months) but last week the phsycic told her that one of her friends is finding trouble coping with the fact that her son may have a mental/developmental disability, and some other stuff as well (which was true) she also said that the same friend had someone very close to her who had just had a miscarriage, and hasn't completely let go yet, but that they should take comfort that the little soul was somewhere very special and safe and that the pregnancy just wasn't meant to be right from the start. She also went on to say that this person has to let go before she can be pregnant again.

    I have always been a sceptic (sp?) but as soon as my friend started telling me this I was crying because deep down I knew it was true and I know what I have to do. I know I haven't let go because every week I look up in my pregnancy book how far along I would be, baby's size etc and just wishing that I still had my baby growing inside me. I have decided to try and come up with a little goodbye ceremony that I can do somewhere by myself just so that I can get some closure, not sure what I am going to do though.

    sorry for rambling, and congrats if you got this far, also sorry for not doing personals tonight will try and catch up with everyone tomorrow.

    HI ladies. I've just suffered an early MC and am wondering when I should expect my next AF. My last MC was 10 years ago so I've forgotten what happened that time. I'm really keen to keep TTC as to be honest I didn't think I had much chance of conceiving at my age (and with my history) and it now seems that it is actually possible.... just need to get it to stick.
