    Hi Girls,
    Been catching up on all the news in here - not sure I will remember it all though!!
    Big CONGRATS to Janeo - the proposal will get the ball rolling & the BFP will follow I am sure - all the best!
    Welcome to the new girls - hope BB helps pass the time until you get your super sticky BFP's! The girls in here are all amazing...
    Shan - nice to hear from you - how are things with you?
    Good luck to those hanging out to test & those who have tested early - hope there are plenty of flashing BFP's in here next time I check!
    CD 9 for me today so the "fun" will be beginning shortly! Not sure how the clomid will affect my cycles so a bit apprehensive this time....BBL for more chit chat. Have a lovely afternoon all!

    Hi girls,

    Hope you all had a good weekend.

    JaneO - congrats on your engagement! That is such wonderful news!

    Welcome to Lisa and Alex. Sorry to hear of your losses. Hopefully we can be a good support to you both.

    Thanks so much for all of your replies. I had an ok weekend away and am feeling a little better now. I am still absolutely terrified that things will never work out for us, and I am not sure even if we should keep trying at the moment. I just feel like it will only die if we try again, and obviously something must be wrong, they just don't know what it is, so what is the point in trying anyway? Now DH does want to try again, and I am not sure if I want to. I have just got an email from my good friend who is pg, but didn't tell me, and it is going to be so hard seeing her go through her pg when we have had such an awful time trying to have the family we want so much. I am still really struggling with things atm.

    BekZ - thanks for all the info re vitex. I think I will go and check it out today. Your chart looks fantastic - I can't believe you haven't tested yet!

    SP - have a great holiday. I really do hope it will work out for us, but I am just losing hope now. Thanks for your thoughts. Have you made your OB appointment yet? I hope that all will be ok and the clot is gone, and in the meantime you enjoy your holiday!

    Sorry for so few personals, so much has been happening here since I last checked, I just can't keep up with it all!

    Bun xx

    Hi to every-one

    JaneO-congratulations to you, here's to the start of a new beginning
    Bun-I am with you, I so cannot keep up with all of this even though I check it out every day.

    Welcome to the new girls & Hi to everyone I have missed.
    I have a couple of questions for you. AF came on Friday and boy since I had my D&C in Nov 06 AF has been very painful, like it used to be when I was younger. Also AF is heavy for a couple of days then just when I think she has gone she comes back. Does this happen or has it happened to any-one else or is there something wrong. I have only ever had AF for 3-4 days max however she hangs around abit now.
    I know I am rattling on but sometimes it all gets on top of us, as you know bun.
    on a lighter note I am with you Sharon, we have been doing a fair bit of bding however to no avail this month, my DH has never had enough of that, he thinks it is wonderful, I think it is overated though.
    I have done the course on charting, well started it a anyway, I just have to get the therm. Living in a small town this is sometimes hard cause everyone watches to see what is happening in everyone elses life instead of their own. No doubt I will get one & all of the town will know, might have to drive to another town to buy one.
    Anyway i have gone on with enough rubbish TTFN

    Hi everyone!
    Well, I am so glad that this week is a short one as I am going nuts and not really able to concentrate at work. Still no BFP or sign of AF, but I have a long cycle so I can expect it anyhwere from now till next monday.
    Bekz - You HAVE to test, your chart looks really really promising! I'm keeping everything crossed for you!
    Herbie - Good luck getting the therm! I know what you mean about everyone watching you in a small town. My suburb is a bit like that, I always seem to run into someone I know (always the biggest busy body around) who wants to know whats in your trolly. DH and I have become experts at hiding OPK's and HPK's under other shopping 'just in case'!
    Sharon - Well done on all the BD'ing. I hope you caught the eggie!
    Bun - Ohhhhh! My heart is going out to you! I'm so sorry that things have been so crappy lately. Don't give up! It's going to happen for you soon, I'm sure of it.
    Mummyto1 - Good luck with this cycle. Hope the clomid gets things happening for you!
    Jen - Hope your temps start behaving soon!

    Big hello to everyone else, hope your Mondays were bearable! I got a lovely surprise today. DH knew that I have been a bit down about TTCing and have not felt that positive about this cycle. He bought me a lovely big bunch of flowers! Just because (always the best reason to get flowers!!!).

    take care ladies

    Hi everyone.

    Welcome to las & heybacko.

    Herbie - I had a D&C years ago and AF immediately went back to normal so it might be worth checking with your doctor on that front.

    Heybacko - it's probably got nothing to do with trying for girls.... more likely to do with your age.... not sure what the odds are but I know we ladies in our 40's are far more likely to mc than our younger sisters..... our eggs aren't so fresh and are more likely to have genetic defects & our hormones are more likely to be out of whack due to us heading towards menopause.

    Bun - I know where you are coming from with other people announcing their pg's. I suffered terribly for many years whenever friends and family announced they were pg. I did eventually get over that and learnt how to accept it with a smile.... it just wasn't my time. That said, if anyone announced they were pg to me right now I reckon I'd burst into tears. I'm currently working with two pregnant women, one of whom is always going on about her pregnancy. I can't tell you how hard that is to deal with.


    The week & a bit since my mc has been full of ups and downs. I've been trying to be positive in thinking that at least I have a step daughter to lavish my love upon. Many ladies in my position don't have that so I should just be grateful.

    I've been bursting into tears at the drop of a hat. Yesterday I cried in the middle of Big W because the only top I liked in the entire store was a maternity one..... and had things not gone wrong I would have been buying it. My DF is trying to be patient with me but he just didn't understand this particular outburst. I did not expect all the tears.... this did not happen with the last MC.

    My DF's grandmother told me that her neighbour was 7 weeks pregnant and how happy she was about it the day after I miscarried. I don't know how I managed not to cry. We hadn't told her so she had no idea what she'd just said. I just said "that's nice" and changed the subject. The worst thing is I just know she (the neighbour) is going to be one of these women who have no problems with being pg (just have a feeling about this) and when she gives birth I will be really upset as I will know I should have been giving birth the following week. Hopefully by then I will be pg again and all will be going well so it will not mean a thing to me.

    At a party on the weekend someone said "**** tells me you are expecting". Once again had to keep the tears at bay while I explained that I wasn't anymore. I then had to listen to the sympathy that people can't help giving you. I could have killed my MIL for telling this woman that I was pg. It was supposed to be kept quiet.... due to my age and the risk of mc. I know I will not be telling her about any subsequent pg until 12 weeks and DF will be banned from doing so as well.

    Grrr, BB wouldn't let me submit and had to refresh and forgot to copy everything I just wrote. Very frustrating.

    Herbie, the last 2 periods since my D&C have been really painful and I will go to the Dr if AF arrives this cycle. I have never had pain like that before.
    Leyla, how nice of DH to bring you flowers. I have long cycles too and it drives me bonkers by the end.
    Hugs to everyone else. What a roller coaster ride we're on.

    I am 14dpo so if my temp doesn't drop tomorrow, I will test.

    Bun so sorry to hear that you are really struggling atm :hugs: but I know that it will happen for you, but you need to wait until you know you are ready to try again.
    Herbie I am fairly sure that with both my D&C's my AF went back to normal so I think that if the next AF is still painful and unusual bleeding then speak to your Dr about it. I don't think dtd is over-rated but when it's 3 nights in a row, it is just a bit too much, although when I first met DH I was a bit of a nymph and jumped his bones EVERY night
    Leyla that is so sweet of your DH to buy you some flowers for no real reason.
    satya I was still having ups and downs up till a couple of weeks ago and my D&C was on Feb 13 so it is totally normal, I remember about a week after D&C I thought I better do some washing and as I was sorting it out I came across the maternity top I wore to the Ob/gyn the day I found out I had lost my baby and I just ended up in a mess on the laundry floor, it will gradually get easier but don't try and rush yourself as it doesn't work :hugs:
    Tinsel good luck with testing tomorrow (hope temps stay up) and I hate it when BB doesn't let me submit a post too and it is usually a really long one.

    Well I am about to head off to bed, have a good sleep everyone, sweet dreams to all.

    Satya - I really feel for you and you are not alone here. Hugs, in time the pain will subside and the sun will begin to shine for you again. Sound yourself with those you love and treat yourself. All these things change what happened but they will help you in the long run.

    Leyla - Still got my fingers crossed for you. What a great DH.

    SP - I am so happy that you and DH are having such a great time. Good on you for having a few wines.

    Bun - Welcome back sweety. All I really want to do is give you a big fat hug.

    Ok ladies.....I woke at 4.30am!!!! and needed to go to the loo, so I did not know whether to test then or not. So I held on for 1 hour and finally got up and did a test. I was sure that I was going to get a negative because I have extremely bad AF pains atm and no other symptoms. BUT...I got a very strong

    So I went back to bed and have been tossing and turning ever since. All sorts of stuff started going through my mind. So I decided to meditate and just relax and now I feel fine. I would like to say that I have a really good feeling about this one, but I don't want to get too excitited (due to all the cramping).

    BekZ thats great news sending heaps and heaps of sticky vibes your way Heres to a healthy and happy nine months for you
    Satya dont be too hard on yourself it takes ages to start feeling ok again sometimes. My last m/c was in June and on Thurs the hosp sent me my US scans from then and I just lost it big time didnt even want to open the packet. Eventually the good days outnumber the bad ones.
    Herbie why dont you check out lullaby conceptions they do internet ordering and send your stuff to you pronto in brown paper boxes with no indication of whats inside so noone needs to know what you're up to
    Bun I'm so sorry you're feeling lousy please dont give up hang in there and keep chatting in here and I'm sure things will get easier

    BekZ that is WONDERFUL news!
    I took my temp at the usual time today and it went up (I am 15dpo) so I tested and I got a faint EEK. I can definitely see the line at arms length and I don't really believe it. I will test again tomorrow and will hopefully have a darker line. My head is in a spin.

    WooooooooHooooooooo Bek and Tinsel. I'm so very happy to hear of those BFP's. Sending all the sticky vibes i can muster to both of you.....How exciting - you'll be BellyBuddies....yay.

    BTW - Tinsel (and others too) are you losing your posts or, more-so, are they not going through when you use 'Post Quick Reply', because if you do, and it won't go through, instead of pressing 'refresh' and losing all your post, just click on 'Go Advanced' and it will take you there and you won't lose your posts - trust me, i learnt this the hard way (and after 100's of lost posts...lol). And the Quick Reply button for some reason doesn't accept some characters, like the percentage sign, in it's posts, and that can cause it to stall....going to advance will fix it.

    How's everyone else doing!!!!!

    Congratulations

    Bekz and Tinsel that is great news, sending you both heaps and heaps of
    sarah066 sending some for you 11 dpo could still be too early.
    *Shan* my problems with posting have always been while using the advanced but have found that sometimes if I copy all the text before refreshing (or cancelling) I can then just paste my text into the new message box and sometimes that works.

    Had another temp rise this morning, so I am thinking that I definitely O'd on Sunday (April Fools Day) LOL. I really do hope I get pg this cycle I don't want to wait any longer, although if I am pg this cycle the baby will be due on my brother's birthday, December 23.

    Wow Tinsel and BekZ!!! Congrats! Two in one day - that's great!! I hope you both go on to have happy, sticky pregnancies.

    Sharon - good luck with this cycle - I hope the trend of BFPs continues!!

    SP - hope you're enjoying your holiday.

    Satya - it most be so hard working with 2 pg women - I don't know if I would be able to handle that right now. DH and I even find it hard to see our nephew these days. It would be great to be able to hear of someone's pg and be happy for them, with no other feelings, but that can be just too hard to manage while going through this. Hopefully it will be us announcing our pregnancies and healthy babies soon!

    Sarah - it's probably still too early, so don't lose hope!

    Leyla - your DH sounds like such a sweetie - what a lovely thing to do.

    Herbie - definitely look into buying things from Lullaby Conceptions - no one will know what it is and the prices are good.

    Hi to everyone else, hope you are all having a good day.

    I am still not sure when to try again. There is no reason not to try this cycle, apart from this feeling I can't shake that something is wrong and it will never work out without some kind of help or intervention. I will be having my cycle tracked, so will know exactly when I O, which may make it too tempting to not try. And my specialist said there is only a tiny chance of actually finding something wrong, so we just have to keep trying. I just wish it would work out so badly, and DH and I are starting to get seriously depressed. Why does it have to be this hard?

    Bekz & Tinsel- A BF congratulations on your BFP that is great news sending lots of to you both.
    Hey Tinsel if your great news is anything to go by then there are obviously no problems with the AF pain. I thought maybe because of the D&C being like a "cleanout" maybe this is why it is a little painful.
    AF has gone back to normal, after my D&C AF arrived exactly 27days later, usual cycle is 28days, so all has been normal in that respect just a little more painful than usual.If it continues though I will give my OB a call & have a chat.
    I think I might order off the Lullaby Conceptions, does it take long to arrive does anyone know?
    Sharon-I know what you are saying about BDing, I didn't so much mean overated but sometimes a bit too much. When DH & I met I was like you in that respect. I think DH thought all his christmas' came at once, my how things change a bit after 10yrs LOL.
    Bun-lots of :hugs: to you we are all thinking of you, chin up & keep talking in here to us, we are all here for a special reason.

    Well Hi to everyone else and I must get back to work, will chat again soon & thanks to you all for information & help with my questions MWAH

    Herbie
