    Hey girls. Just got home from work after having a great day. My spotting, or whatever it is, has stayed steady all day. There's almost nothing there, just a hint of pinky brown when I wipe. I put a pad on just in case, and there's virtually nothing on it. [TMI warning] When I wiped at one point there was quite a bit of CM with some pink and brown blood, and since then it's only been very little. So I still have hope!

    Your messages have picked me right up also and made me feel a lot better. And my Bbs still hurt! I might still be pregnant after all! Now to wonder how long I can hold on until I test

    Lisa xx



    Edit: oh, and I think I'm 12/13 DPO.

    Just wanted to drop in and throw a few tonnes of babydust over you all.... xxx
    Got everything crossed for some lovely BFP's this month

    Acria (hello, we haven't met...sounds EXACTLY like impantation bleeding to me WOOHOO!) I really hope this is it- and you can set off a wonderful chain for the other ladies (it seems the BFP's here all bunch together...3-4 in one go, and then nothing for weeks. Very odd, but you go girl )

    Hi to everyone else, I don't drop in so much atm cos work is crazy (exam season) and I'm exhausted in the evenings so usually crash out by 10pm). You are always in my thoughts, and I do go back through all the threads I've missed but not a chance of doing personals with so much going on and so many new faces. I wish you all the very best tho!

    afm- well, i have my 20 week scan next week (yay) and heard the heartbeat again this week, good and strong. No more bleeding since the 11 week scare, and praying it stays that way. Belly is the size of a soccer ball, perfectly round and firm so I'm very happy with my cute, neat bump. Have felt bubs moving around too, but DH can't feel it yet.

    Big hugs and stacks of babydust for you all.
    ps I am not going tp PAML thread at all, just doesn't feel right. I'll just drop in here now and then for a catchup and a gossip xx (Acria, I'll defo be back to see how you go xx)

    mollycat--Sorry to hear you're still in limbo with your goofy cycle. I guess that's the one good thing about AF showing for me--at least now I know what CD I am! you get some answers soon!


    pbstar--Hey, hun, thanks for thinking of me! I never realized that it was common to get watery CM and for your cervix to open before AF-- but has never happened for me before that I've been aware of, so it threw me off. I'm still in shock, it was definitely unexpected, even though AF was due today. your TWW ends with a surprising BFP!


    plc--Your words are always so eloquent, thanks for your constant support! I truly hope you're enjoying your pregnancy--it's going to be over before you know it!


    Acria--Your symptoms still sound really promising! your spotting is due to implantation bleeding! I'm waiting in anticipation to see a BFP announcement from you--good luck POAS!


    AJC--Always good to get more sticky vibes and baby dust--thanks for that! Hope your feeling good and enjoying rubbing that belly (even if you don't have one yet, I'm sure you're getting lots of belly rubs in!)


    issy--I'm realizing now that I definitely need to buy a thermometer so I can start temping this cycle! Thought I'd give it a go without temping, but the inconsistency is making me crazy! I guess I can't really expect my chart to be accurate if I'm only going by CM, I just never knew it was common to get watery CM more than once during a cycle. It's just nasty AF playing tricks on my mind! My fingers are still crossed for you this cycle-- you'll be surprised with a BFP--they're always the best when they're unexpected!


    bettyboop--Sorry your cycle's so goofy this month, as well! Fingers, legs, toes, and eyes are crossed for June!


    SaraJane--:goodluck2: with the accupuncture, herbs, and O! Hope it helps regulate your cycle!


    Jodsan--I was under the impression that the only time your cervix opened was when O! I think it was just AF's way of "sticking it to me" by giving me false hope I drowned my sorrows last night with a Mike's hard lemonade (was out of rum for daquiri's), and this morning am drowning myself in coffee. Back on the train for another bumpy ride... Hope things are well with you and you're enjoying your weekend!


    nickster--Thanks for checking on us! It's always good to hear from you! Good luck next week on your 20 wk scan--my gosh, I can't believe you're 20 weeks already! Hope you're enjoying your I wish I could rub your tummy for good luck--I could sure use it!


    Hi's and hugs for everyone else! Thinking of you all always! In fact, it's pretty bad--we're going camping for 5 days in June and I've got to try to get a card for my DSD's laptop so I can log online so I don't miss you girls! I honestly can't imagine 5 days away from BB and away from all your support! Thanks to all of you for getting me through!

    Ok, just placed an order for preseed and a thermometer! It's time to get serious here... no more uncertainty! Now, hopefully the thermometer gets here before AF leaves so I can start temping! You are supposed to wait till after to begin temping, right?





    MistyFying--was wondering if it's ok to add my chart to my signature? Or can I not have both my chart and a ticker, and all the text? Thanks, just don't want to get an infraction!

    Hey Jodsan, I had another question about the Jonas method. I checked to see my fertile day for June, my chart is predicting O on the 16th. Jonas calendar shows the 16th, but says fertile 24 hours before date shown (which would make my fertile day right on my predicted O day!). But here's my question: under the lunarium calendar the only date that shows my moon sign is June 6th--what's the difference between the lunarium calendar and the Jonas calendar? Does that mean I could possibly conceive on the 6th and the 15th? Thanks, I'm sorry to always burden you with so many questions--I appreciate your opinion very much!

    Acria- I'm hanging out to see what's happening with you, hopefully no sign of AF!
    nickster- don't think we've met!
    jen- sorry about stupid AF. I just temp the whole time in my cycle but it will be fine to start when ur thermometer comes. It sounds like you're feeling positive this cycle and I reckon you should be, when your lunar and normal fertile days line up you're super likely to get preg, there's some threads on here about lunar fertility somewhere, check them out.

    afm- hmm....my temp has gone way up today, yay!! Go acupuncture. Yesterday he was trying to warm my body up and get my temp higher, looks like it worked!!

    Bad news I think girls. Depite all my and Dh's best efforts, and all your super positive vibes (thanks btw ), it looks like AF is here I woke up this morning with stronger cramps and when I went to the toilet, there's quite a bit of blood, bright red and thick with some mucous. So I've put a pad on and have to work from 10am and 3pm. I'll take a book and have a good read to myself, because the business will be quiet.

    My head is saying 'Okay, your period is here, get prepared for the next cycle and the next try!', but my heart is saying 'Don't give up just yet..you never know..the cramps aren't that bad now..etc etc'. If I'm not pg then why did my body give me all those symptoms, and if I am, why is it bleeding? Gahh! I feel like I can't trust my body anymore..she and I are on different wavelengths or something.

    Acria - my body did the same thing to me in Feb this year. I had tender bb's and that metallic taste in my mouth. I was soooo positive I was going to be a BFP so I felt really really confused when I didn't. I'm so sorry about af, please try to stay positive though.

    nickster - GL for your mid term scan. Wow, I can't believe how far along you are now. Keep in touch.

    jen - sounds like it's time to get serious. Dh and I struggled to 'time it right' after the first m/c but we fell pg second month temping. Am sure your BFP is just around the corner too.

    Sarahjane - GL with the acupuncture!

    mollycat - hope your cycle sorts itself out soon. It's hard enough without body playing tricks on you.

    Hope you are all having a good weekend!

    afm - doing ok. Feel so much better since appointment last week and I think I even had a little m/s yesterday . I woke up and felt sick at about 6am then went back to bed until 7.30 alarm. Woke up felt better but was just hungry all day - felt like my stomach was empty but I ate like a horse! And the hungrier I got the weirder I felt. Sort of like how the clomid made me feel. Less than two weeks until next scan. Will keep you all updated. Just taking it easy as per ob's request.

    Hi ladies,

    Im sitting here in my pj's (and yes its 12:00pm) after having a very lazy Sunday morning. DH let me sleep in while he took DS to footy training (that's AFL football for the overseas girls) so I stayed warm and cosy in my bed, and didn't wake up until DH got home at 10:30am. Now that's bliss!!!!!

    Ok time for some persies...

    Mollycat - hope your cycle sorts itself out soon that your BFP is just around the corner!

    Pbstar - hope you're doing ok hun...remember its not over till its over!

    Acria - so sorry to hear that AF arrived in full force (nasty witch) I really thought that this was it for you...sending loads of :goodluck2: for next cycle.

    Jen - sorry about AF also
    About temping, glad you decided to buy one, hopefully this will give you more answers and you'll be able to see a pattern in your cycle which will help you predict ov. I used to temp religiously but now I only temp as AF approaches just to let me know when af will arrive so im prepared IYKWIM. DH and I decided that we would bd everyday (or at least every 2nd) throughout my entire cycle just to make sure, as I was getting a bit obsessive over the whole temping thing. But in saying that, temping for a few months allowed me to recognise a pattern in my cycle and now Im so intune with my body, that I know when I have ov and when im approaching it. I simply made note of other symptoms which coincided with my temps around o, such as watery or ewcm, bloating and pain around ovary area with low temps and a sore spot in my left breast coincided with my temp rising so I know that when this occurs, I have o'ed. GL with it hun, im sure you'll feel more in control about your cycles when you temp. That bfp is just around the corner, I can feel it coming!!!

    Sarajane - im thinking of visiting an acupuncturist also, my cousin in a Chinese medicine (or medical, not sure how to say this) practioner, but he has recently moved to Sydney so I cant use him now. Bummer! Congrats on the high temps, they stay high for the next 8 months.

    AJC - Yay for the m/s, so weird isn't it to celebrating it, but its certainly something that makes it feel more real and that everything will be ok if you have it. Take care of yourself and enjoy it!


    AFM - I think im about 8 dpo, and my temp was 36.9 this morning, so average for this time of my cycle. Im feeling pretty good about things still, not overly confident that this is the month, but hey, you just never know! No other symptoms to report as yet, although have been weeing like there is no tomorrow, but then again, its too early for this symptom and its bloody cold here at the moment, so im not surprised im a wee machine! Ok thats it for now,

    Hello to everyone else, im thinking of you all and wishing you loads of GL and happiness.

    AJC - so good to hear you are doing well and great to hear you are having some symptoms, even if they are yucky... less than 2 weeks until you can see your little munchkin again (yay!)...

    Jen and Acria - I'm so so sorry to hear about witchface AF ... I hope you are both doing ok...and I hope this AF doesn't give you too much trouble (sounds like she might be though Jen ). Great big and make sure your dh's are extra nice to you... And good luck with the pre seed and temping this month Jen, I find the temping is good purely because it gives me something to do! Also good to feel like you have a bit more control over your cycle.

    sara-jane - great results from seeing the acupuncturist! Sneaked a peek at your chart and there's no mistaking that temp jump! Great news...

    nickster - don't think we've properly met but *hello* anyway! It is good to hear from you - encouraging messages from the "other side" definitely helps, and gives me lots of hope that I'll be back there soon... Glad to hear all is going well. Continue to enjoy that bump!

    Jodsan - hello! hope you're doing ok

    Issy and pbstar - hope the 2ww is treating you both ok ... lol at the "wee machine" issy! Damn cold weather!

    mollycat - how was the hair appt? I would kill for one of those at the moment ... Hope you feel nice and relaxed and have lovely swishy hairdresser hair to make you feel nice!

    bettyboop - how did the opk's go?

    Hi and bellyrubs to plc, mmteacher, canary, emmylou and any other of our latest bfp recipients that are lurking out there!! Here's some

    Hi and to any others I have missed...

    afm - am at about 2 or 3 dpo I think, so am now entering treacherous waters (lol!). My delayed Sydney trip now means I am heading off with ds on Tuesday for 5 days so am really looking forward to that as a distraction. Other than that, am doing pretty good, and to be honest am glad the bd'ing can now taper off a bit! Am exhausted!! Might see some of you over in the 2ww thread also..

    Take care!

    Just popping in to give you big hugs, Bettyboop! Your chart might be saying you're about to ovulate, but it's a little hard to tell without other information like cm and opk details. Glad you had a friend with you today so that you could support each other.

    SaraJane-- Yay on the temp jump, looks like another score for accupuncture!


    Acria--You and me both? I was personally shocked to see AF show for me when she did, so I can imagine after all your symptoms how discouraged you must feel. Sorry hun! Sending huge cyberhug your way!


    AJC--Continue taking it easy, I'm counting the days till your next scan! Good luck with the m/s, at least it's a positive sign that all is well with the pg!


    issy--I'm so relieved to hear of you sitting in your pj's at noon! I stayed in my jams until after 6 pm, and only got dressed to take DS to his 8th grade dance! I felt like a complete slacker all day--just sat around putting songs into my new ipod. It's nice sometimes to just have a lazy day, isn't it? They're just too few and far between! Thanks for the info on temping, I'm sure I'll be asking you a bazillion questions about temperatures and coverlines! It's all new to me, so not really sure what's what as far as when it should go up or down, etc...


    jenushka--Thanks for the good luck with temping and preseed. Did you and DH ever try out the preseed, I remember you saying you got some? Figured we'd give it a try--we always use some sort of lubricant, and I read that all lubes, and even saliva, can kill those all-important so I figured this would be a proactive solution to that problem! And I've been so frustrated with my charting, but the only info FF has had to go by has been CM, and obviously that's not enough to accurately determine when my fertile days are. Like you said, it will be something to do--I actually get a kick out of charting, so hopefully I can use that to my advantage this month! Yay, I'll actually have lines on my graph now! Good luck in your TWW--sounds like you'll be very distracted with DS!


    mollycat--I'm so jealous you got a haircut and color! I love going to the hairdresser and getting my hair washed--that's the best part! Unfortunately, DF is the one that cuts and colors my hair, so I don't get spoiled like that. What color did you get? I have a box of red on my bathroom counter--it's been there for 2 weeks waiting for DF to get the hint! My hair right now is a dirty blond, so the red will give it a little kick--if DF ever gets the hint! Any news on whether you've O yet? Ooohh, and it's Monday, is this the last day of tying up the loose ends on the extension?


    bettyboop--Good luck with your BT on Tue. and your appointment with the FS on Friday. Hopefully you'll get some answers about your cycle!


    to all our friends lucky enough to be blessed with BFP's: mmteacher, Anthonysmom, JMG, nickster, Trac, Magda, Katiegirl, ll80, rainbowgirl, plc, AJC, Canary, Mel, and Emmy-Lou. Truly hope you're all enjoying your


    :goodluck2: to all those in the TWW: tina, pbstar, mollycat, issy, Abbey, jenushka, megsmum, Hussibug, SaraJane, KrystieLove, bettyboop, and charli'smumma (hi, I don't think we've met, but welcome!), smilanatu (think you just O'ed, right, so you should be here?)



    Not sure where the others are in relation to their cycle, but hi and hugs to tempus, treelo, Jodsan, tutmae, Cierasmummy, Karan, Vanaithi, Antheia, Toccara, WTH, Mazibelle, Angel Babies, and LizJessie

    Good Morning (and afternoon) to all

    I've finally O'd (according to FF) last Friday which would tie in with the pains I was having, they just weren't as strong as they usually are so I wasn't sure. So maybe my goofy cycle can get back on track
    DH and friend installed our kitchen and we painted all weekend and now my new room looks great. Still have to paint one more coat on walls and trim and we'll get that done one night through the week, it's a pale shade of apricot with a darker apricot trim. Still haven't done the laundry/bathroom as the tiler is not finished, he ran out of tiles and they'll be in wednesday. I think we'll paint it white as the tiles are blue, so that should break it up. We put a piece of carpet in the new room and re-used the lino out of the old one for the kitchen and dining areas. Eventually we want to put in timber floors but they have to wait - can't afford that yet. I've started putting the toys back out there, the kids are going to be surprised at the space they'll have at the moment until we move our dining table, etc out. The plumber comes in today so hopefully that will be him out of the way and I have to ring the electrician to come back and hook up the dishwasher and stove then he'll be finished. almost done

    My hair is normally a brown at the moment it's a dark chocolate with red/pink foils and i've had a little taken off the length so it sits just under my shoulders. I love getting my hair done, the place where I go really spoils me. My eldest son had his cut too, it was a bit of a shock his was well down his neck and covering his eyes and ears and now it's quite short. Looks good.

    Bettyboop just remember we're thinking of you.
    AJC - yay for m/s. Makes it feel real. Glad your scan turned out well, and counting down to the next one.
    Issy - good on you. wish I could sit around in my pj's like that. bit hard with people coming in and out doing jobs all day. We even had the tiler in on sat and sun, as well as DH's friend/boss.

    To everyone . Heading off now to shower and finish tidying up before work. Pop back in later.

    morning girls

    a big thank you to issy, acria, sara jane and jen for all your kind words of support over the past few days when i was being a big sook about everything. am feeling much better now.

    jen- sorry to hear AF is being hard on you this month- as ever though you are being very strong, positive and inspiring. good luck with the preseed and temping this month! oh and glad to hear you will find a way to take us all camping with you, am sure we would all miss you too much if you disapeared for 5 days

    issy- thanks again for all your little pep talks! made me laugh when you turned my own words back on me ("another step closer...")! glad to hear you are relaxed and happy so far in this TWW. almost one week down and only one to go!i have my fingers crossed and am saying lots of for you hun.

    acria- so sorry to hear AF came, i had a really good feeling about your symptoms and can imagine how disapointed you are. hang in there and take care of yourself, big big

    sara jane- yay for temp going up! fingers crossed for you

    jenushka- totally know what you mean about recovering from all the BDing! it's fun but definitely exhausting! have a great time in sydney this week.

    to everyone i have missed a big and big

    and of course for all

    Default preseed

    Hey Jen - re the preseed - We ended up using it twice, and was going to use the third application but when opening it found it had burst. The instructions say not to use it if that's the case because there can be the risk of infection given the way that you *ahem* apply it (lol - sorry, feeling very juvenile today!).

    We both liked using it - definitely didn't need the whole application each time, would have been way too much. And yes, it's nice to know that it's not harmful to those all important

    And you are such a trooper for staying positive - I can't even begin to tell you how helpful it is to see you keep your chin up. You'll be a role model for me if AF shows her face at the end of this cycle. Great big for you!

    Hi ladies,

    Just a quick post from me today, feeling pretty crappy with a filthy headache. AF arrived yesterday, so as I thought we have had no luck this cycle. Oh well that's the way it goes I guess, but I could do without the stupid AF headache.

    Anyway I have made the big decision (it is for me anyway!) to go onto Clomid this month, so will be doing that along with IUI. I have decided that it is time to admit there is a problem and deal with it and move on. So there you go

    I'll still pop in from time to time, but wanted to say good luck to everyone, hope you all get your BFP really soon!
