    mmteacher--Cute new ticker! I'm sure your mom will understand why you're keeping your secret, but I can understand how hard it would be to keep it quiet! Hope you enjoyed the movie!


    mollycat--I think you should enjoy your time off, especially since you deserve to have some time off that isn't grief-related! Take advantage of it, girl


    plc--Congrats on the GREAT numbers on your BT! I'm actually excited for you starting to feel blah and tired! (sounds kinda funny, but YKWIM!) Can't wait for your u/s--1 more week till you get to see your sticky bub!


    AJC--Glad to hear your TTW is going quickly, hope it continues to do so! you end your week with a BFP!!!


    Vanaithi-- you'll see some implantation signs soon! Good luck, hun!


    Where there's hope--So glad to hear your doc's feeling so positive about giving it a try naturally! Not that I have anything against IVF, but of course, if you CAN do it naturally that's always the optimum way. 38 years YOUNG is no sweat--look at all these women in their 40's that are still having babies: Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett (not purposely listing Aussie only gals lol...) Halle Berry... So don't worry, you've got plenty of time! You're in my prayers!




    smilanatu--Haven't heard from you in a few days. Hope you had a fabulous Mother's day! Also hope that pile on your desk has gone down some--I've been missing you, girl! Have a great Monday!


    AFM..... Happy to say DF made it back from his island expedition! He had a great time and is rather impressed with himself to have made the trip in such a small boat! Can't tell you how many times he was told he was crazy for even making the attempt, which only makes him want to succeed even more. I'm hoping it's all out of his system now, as it was pretty nerve-wracking for me! We had a nice Mother's day. Got to eat at Panda Express---mmmmm orange chicken, chow mein, and fried rice! Then we went Geocaching, where you have to use a GPS coordinates to find a "treasure"--has anyone else heard of this? It's great fun, we used to do it all the time, but slowed down a bit during the winter. You guys should check into it--people all over the world play. I've even found a Geocoin that came from Portugal! It's like a huge treasure hunt that spans the globe.... good fun!

    Anyhow, hope everyone has a great day! Sending hugs, and :goodluck2:

    Hi Everyone!

    Glad to hear your stories of great mother's days. It was Mothers day in March in the UK, so I was not out visiting my Mum this weekend.

    I am on CD 33 today. I have not yet POAS. I know that I said I was going to on Sun (anniversary of GF's death), but I had a look at past cycles and AF seems to appear on CD 33 or 34, so it seemed a bit early. Also my bb's are not sore at all, so in my mind I cant be pgt! I am really tired, though. The last time that I got this tired was when I was pgt......... but I could be trying to convince myself of symptoms!! Aaah!- it is always difficult to keep my mits off the pee stick at this time of the month!!

    Hi to our pregger's friends. Great news about the bt, plc. mmteacher- when is your bt?

    Jen, I can only echo the sentiments of the others here......FIVE times! Wow! You go girl!!!

    Vanaithi. Hi! GL in your new job, I'm sure it will be nicer without those fumes!

    Emmy Lou- I hope that the 2ww is not too draining, hun. When is your POAS day?

    Mollycat- Your extension sounds really exciting. GL catching the eggy.

    Pbstar, Abbey and Issy- sorry about AF. Time for a fresh cycle- Fingers crossed for this one.:goodluck2:

    WTH- Thanks for posting the advice from your FS. It is really encouraging to hear.

    AJC-Are you in 2ww too? When is your POAS day? I'm glad that the thrush has gonenow. that it was a sign of a BFP on it's way!

    AngelB- Glad you're still 'listening' out there. Hope that things are going well with DH and you are both enjoying each other's company.

    Well, girls, to those in the 2ww, I hope to log in soon and see a few more BFP's. GL to all

    Good morning everyone!!!

    bday buddy - i know u said u were not too thrilled with this bday but let me be thrilled for both u & i - 5 sleeps to go!!!!!!

    canary - thx about the good wishes. i can't wait til u test hun. but just to let u know that i didn't have sore bbs either - in fact nothing much at all but a lower abdomen heaviness. The tiredness has just now started to kick in for me. Do you prefer AF to turn up or continual BFNs? Some people prefer one over the other. I guess ul know within next couple of days, right? Good luck!!!

    smilanatu - ohh honey - sorry to hear things are not so easy in ur relationship at the moment. I pray u both manage to get thru it. take care sweet!

    jen - thanks for the encouragement, love, and glad u had such a great mother's day. the food sounds yummo and the geo-expedition sounds like it would have been heaps of fun - i have never heard of it.

    wth - honey - i'm so glad that u r making some confident decisions re TTC and that u have a plan. it is so hard when u feel like u r surrounded by darkness and confusion to make positive and constructive decisions. I wish you a world of luck, strength and positivity as you start to make these steps.

    vanaithi - il be praying alongside u honey and hoping the "tuggy" feeling means something. keep strong sweet!


    hello to AJC, mollycat, mmteacher, issy, betty, jodsan, mel a, tina, tempus, emmy-lou, pbstar, nickster, trac, katie, abbey, anthonysmom, jenushka - and anyone else i am sure to have forgotten (help jen?).

    smilanatu--So sorry to hear you're having probs with your sweetie, and that you've been so stressed out Hope things are looking up today. Still you caught that eggie!


    Canary--Mother's day in March? That's strange, I didn't know that. So how long are you going to be able to hold out before you POAS? I'll be chuffed to bits (just learned this on Ellen--it means thrilled ) to hear of you getting a BFP!

    Default BBT during pregnancy???

    Hi all! just a quickie about bbt during conception & pregnancy...

    What bbts have you charted during the tww up til finding out you are preggers?

    I bought a thermometer last thursday & was able to check my temp on friday morning & this morning. I think Im supposed to chart it at the beginning of AF but thought i'd practise first!

    Anyways, fridays was 36.7 & this morning was 36.8. My AF is due end of this week i think as it is my last week in the tww... is this bbt about right in this instance?

    I've heard that bbt elevates up to 37 degrees during ovulation... and then drops before AF - is this right?

    Any information would be great!

    Thanks to all & good luck!

    Hey there everyone.

    Well I'm not really new to BB, but I haven't been around since last August or so. Last year I had a m/c and a chemical pregnancy, and DH and I ended up deciding not to TTC for a while. One of my girlfriends is due to have a baby anytime now, which is so exciting, and DH and I have just decided that we're ready to try again, so here I am!

    It's nice to see that a lot of the girls who were in the TTCAML forums when I was around last year have moved onto the PAML ones now So there's hope for us all!

    A little bit about me, I'm 27 years old, DH is 29. He's an image of health And I need to lose...a bit of weight.. :blush: After my previous pregnancies, I had a full round of blood tests done and everything came up normal, so it appears that my losses have been due to bad luck, or my weight/blood pressure. So fingers crossed in a big way. My cycles are just a little unreliable, though I tend to have a 27 day cycle. I'm on day 9 now, and we DTD last night. At least I know we'll be getting the DTD in at the right times because DH is terribly enthusiastic right now! For the first time we're both feeling completely ready for a baby at the same time. Everything has gone right this year so far..so hoping the pattern continues!

    Looking forward to getting to know you girls, and seeing lots of BFPs

    Lisa xx

    Hey tina--I've been really worried about you! Did you feel that huge earthquake? I had the same experience with my last cycle, but it was my first real cycle after my m/c, so I'm sure it was my body getting back to "normal". I was also 5 days late, with BFN's, but she showed up for me. Sorry, that's probably not much help! you stay safe and come home with a BFP! Hope you're enjoying your trip!

    Hi ladies,

    Just a quick one today,

    Welcome back Acria, sorry to hear of your losses. I hope your stay in here is short and sweet.

    Special congrats to mmteacher and rainbow girl I wish you both a happy and healthy pg.

    And a huge hello and hugs to Emmylou, Cieras mummy, Treelo, Jenushka, Karan, Mollycat, Tempus, Rainbowgirl, Pbstar, mazibelle, Jen, Plc, Tutmae, smilanatu, treelo, canary, angel babies, AJC, WTH, Jodsan, bettyboop, katiegirl, Tina_k, Trac73,

    Vanaithi ? hi, to answer your question?your bbt sounds perfect for this time of your cycle. Around ov, your temp should dip, not rise though. This dip indicates ov and the rise in temp straight after indicated the switch from estrogen (for ov) to progesterone?I think.

    AFM ? AF has left the building , was a short and light one this time?thank god. So here we go again. GL to everyone?.we had few ladies with bfps this month?.lets continue the trend girls....bring it on May/June!

    issy--SO glad to hear AF was short and sweet! Mine lasted for 7 days, but was light the entire time, could AF be growing a heart? Now it's back to the rollercoaster ride! Good luck for May!

    lea! My sincere condolences on your loss I, too, suffered from a blighted ovum back in '95, so I personally know the sadness and confusion you're feeling right now. you get the answers you need from the specialist, and that your stay here with us is short and sweet! You've come to the right place for support and understanding! If you look under Forums, you'll find the Forum Help, Abbreviations, and FAQ's to help you figure out the lingo--I know it's confusing at first, but after a while you'll start thinking in lingo and seeing mysterious acronyms in your mind! Good luck on your TTC (trying to conceive) journey!


    smilanatu--Morning! Hope things are getting a little better for you! Did your headache finally go away? Hope things are going well with you and your sweetie!

    Hello everyone,

    To Lisa and Lea, a big fat: We have not newbies for a while and have sent a few ladies off to PAML recently. I hope that you will both be joining them soon.

    Tina: Hello over in HK! I hope that you are having a great time, I absolutely loved my time there a few years ago. I dont know whether you saw my post a few days ago, but I wondered whether you have got your dates wrong and are testing early?? AF should be with me today, but I think that it is like 'a watched pot never boils' - I just need to stop thinking about her and she will arrive!

    plc- Ohh, I am definately of the 'I'd rather get AF than a BFN' group. Maybe it is because I am loathe for the companies who make pee sticks to make a huge profit out of me! Also, until the month before last, I'd only ever seen a BFP when I had tested, and it was a huge let down when it didnt appear.

    Smilinatu- I'm sorry to have left you off my last post. It must be because I am so tired and a bit dopey that I did not even read your post that said that you and your man are having troubles. I hope that things get better soon.

    Jen- you made me giggle! I cant believe that 'chuffed to bits' hasnt made it over to California! It's funny how lingo varies between countries that all speak English. I'll be getting confused about it all when I go to NY and New England this summer (can't wait!)

    Vanaithi- I have given up temping cos I kept forgetting at the weekends! I used to know a bit about it, but have forgotten most! The ff website should have a lot of info about temping. GL!

    I'm not going to the gym tonight- I've given myself the night off to do housework (oh joy!), becuse it is in dire need of a huge clean up! Well, better go- the sooner I start, the sooner I finish!
