    Hi everyone

    Would you please help us out by checking your signatures comply with the BellyBelly guidelines? In most cases signature guideline breaches are accidental, so to help you understand the rules there is a link to the signature guidelines below.

    You mustn't:
    a. have more than one ticker
    b. have too many lines - you may have 4 lines of text and a ticker or 6 lines of text without a ticker
    c. have a signature which is centred (all signatures must be left-aligned)
    d. have an image which is not part of a ticker
    e. have a ticker which is too large - it must be 120 pixels high or less
    f. have text which is too large - shouldn't be greater than Size 4, Size 2 is the normal size


    Our Signature/Ticker/Image guidelines are HERE

    Thanks for you help everyone... it saves us a lot of work when we all follow the guidelines

    mrzbaby - I agree with the other ladies that it might be a good idea to talk to your DH. He needs to know how you are feeling and then he'll be better able to support you. But don't feel you have to make a decision right now. Maybe deciding not to TTC now is a good idea to allow yourself time to recover both physically and emotionally. But allow yourself the opportunity to rethink the issue in a few months. Just a suggestion. It may not take 4 months for your lining to build back up. But I do wish you all the best, whatever you decide. Huge to you hun. Take care of yourself.

    Mel - Glad you are feeling a little better. And don't worry. I have those moments where I feel as though the pregnancy with my angel was a fluke. And I've only been trying for 7 months.

    Shortcake - It is very frustrating when we can't get clear answers from our own bodies Sending lots of :saaf: vibes your way in case it was too early to test. Congratulations on the new house. That is something to look forward too.

    sally - I hope your first day back at work went smoothly. Glad you have such a supportive DH.

    jen -

    Mannie - I think only platinum members can change their mood now. This is to save space on the server.

    hi there.. just popping my previous post just in case anyone else has any advice.. here it is:
    well.. my body is confusing me now.. as I mentioned in my post the other day I had some egg white cm last friday and saturday.. on sunday i also had a bit but by sunday afternoon/monday it had gone a bit watery. This morning I had very strong ewcm again. I am not temping or opk?ng atm so i don't have any clear indicator as to if I have O'd or not... what do you lovely ladies think? do you think that I am yet to O???? sorry if my question is tmi

    i have heard that maybe you can get ewcm throughout the month.. not just at O time... *sigh* gee our bodies like to make it hard doesn't it!

    how is everyone going?
    Mannie - welcome back not sure we have met... so hi there

    Thanks HannahD will have to sign up for platinum membership then.....by the way I LUUUUUUVVVV ANGEL the tv series I was glued to it every week when it was on live to air!!! however I haven't subscribed to it on Foxtel so am missing out now. He is such a hunk for a vampire

    hi boble nice to meet you too, I find that cm even when its watery is still a sign of being in a fertile period, but definitley if your seeing eggwhite cm so you probably have ovulated however without any other fertility sign to gage by ie; temp or checking your cervix then its a little hard to say yes or no. Check the fertilityfriend website because they have heaps of info on this stuff. Goodluck hope your caught the egg!!!

    Unhappy First day DONE!

    Hannah thanks for the thoughts!

    It was horrible but it will never be as bad again now, 1 step at a time I guess.

    SO hard, people don't know what to say and I don't even know what I want them to do anyway so probably everything they do will be wrong.

    Has any one used the menevit, or their partners I should say.

    I was at the chemist today picking up some vitimans because Ive been a little down and lost my appetite and the lady suggested using that.
    SUch a sucker, bought it cause I think anything will help, if for nothing else then piece of mind.

    Our Termination was due to abnormalities and I think we both feel we are to blame, though that doesn't help anyway!

    Let me know if anyone has used it.

    Tomorrow will be easier I'm sure!!

    Default Still poking around

    Sally: I got my hubby on it ( only for the last 2 weeks). I say it looks as though it helps from their website or it is very convincing My Obalso suggested him to take it and I take the Blackmores Conception Tablets and a folic acid tablet as well.

    To all the lovely ladies who listened and advised during my blable last night. Ironically I feel more relaxed.... BUT DH ( yes I told him ) was not so happy and wants me to wait for a few more months before making that decision.
    I saw my specialist today and told him of the decision and he too told me not to make it at the moment............ I still have preg hormones.... did a POAS today at the specialists and there they were 2 strong pink lines ( they weren't ever that strong when i did the test when i was pregnant. ) I have to go have bloods done tomorrow so the OB has them Monday and to make it worse I have started bleeding again ( sorry for tmi) not sure if this is normal now after 3 D&C's I am not sure what normal is anymore at all.
    I don't see myself TTC for a while if ever ... damn i hate hormones You girls do inspire me though and i know you have all been through the same emotions and feelings as I so i just want to say thanks and if its ok can I still hang about while I sort my mind out about the whole TTC thing? thanks

    Thanks Em
    aka the so so so confused one

    Hi everyone,

    Well here's hoping the new thread brings heaps of BFP's! February didn't bring as many as I had hoped for -

    Mannie - Welcome back. Good luck on your TTC journey, I truly hope you have your forever baby by Christmas!

    Sally - I think the first day is always the hardest, you've done well to get through it. All you can do is take one step at a time. Some days will be better than others but on the days you need advice or need to vent we are all here for you

    boble - Only thing I would suggest is to BD until AF arrives which hopefully she won't! I have given up on trying to read my body, although every month I still seem to second guess every little symptom I might get

    HannahD - It's nice to know I am not alone with my feelings but at the same time it breaks my heart to know you are all going through the same roller coaster of emotions. I'm glad we can all be here for one another

    Shortcake -

    Jen - It's not often you miss persies so you must be busy! Hope you are taking some time out for yourself (although knowing you the answer will be no!).

    AFM - Went back to my FS today for a follow up after my op. He seems really positive and said the odds are definitely in our favour now my tubes are clear and my endo has been removed. He said even though my endo was mild it was enough to possibly be the reason for my fertility issues. So back to TTC until August and then if no luck we will try IVF. It will be 2 years since we started trying in August so I so hope I get my BFP before then. My FS said he doesn't want me to try any longer than 6 months after the op as my endo will most probably start to come back which could hinder our efforts again.

    Anyway he seemed really positive and was glad we got some answers as there was not really anything else he could test for!

    I haven't really got any symptoms either way (usually I get really sore boobs about a week before AF arrives). I have had some lower back pain today which is usually a sign AF is coming so I don't think it is my month

    I caved last night and POAS - BFN! I am so over seeing 1 line.......

    Better check my signature now, it's a pity I can't change my mood, guess I will just have to stay inspired

    Hi,
    so it looks like Ill be back in this thread again soon.
    I had a scan today and the baby measured right for dates (9w2d) and was moving and its heart was beating but the ob thinks it has Hydrops? i have another scan at a different place tomorrow for another opinion but everything I read is terrible, I will probably lose the baby but dont know when. It just horrible knowing Im probably carrying around a dying baby. How can I lose another one? its just tearing me apart. I hate myself and my body and dont think I can ever do this again.

    Hey Ladies,

    Sorry for lurking but am making the most of being able to sleep at the moment. I bought myself this amazing little pillow and i swear its been my lifeline!!!

    Had 34 week midwife app this morning, all is perfect. She had a poke and prod around and bubs has moved to the head down position, but who knows that all could change again, but its starting to feel oh so real now.

    Fingers crossed we can get the room finished this weekend then i can relax even more!

    Sorry for no persies - I just cant keep up.

    But welcome to the new ladies you who have joined us. I hope your stay is short and sweet.
