    Thanks guys for all the 'good luck' wishes......I just got home and i'm in two minds. The interview was fine, asked a lot of questions ie. what they think i would bring to the company, why I applied, why that industry, etc etc, and i just felt that i was lying to them.....well moreso, just trying to convince myself that i actually want that job.

    It's an industry that i know and have had pretty much all of my work history in, but those questions just made me question myself as to whether i actually want to be in that industry at all anymore....

    I always said that when we moved here i'd get a job in Coles or Big W or something like that, that is stress free and pretty cruisy so that we can still have TTC as our main focus, but DH is desperate for me to be working and now i don't know what to do. It would be a great job......but do i want the pressure??? and deep down, I'm really having doubts, so is my sub conciousness trying to tell me something... Someone help me please, I need some words of wisdom from you girls...xxx

    Shan - Maybe being in a busy job might help keep your mind occupied! I find that I think about ttc way too much now I've moved over to this slow boring job that I've had for the last year. I miss the excitement of my old busy stressful job to be honest. Good luck with making a decision. Do you think they are keen? Would it involve long long hours?

    Good evening beautiful girls,

    Wow I have been in Melbourne for work and I come back it has been really busy here! Welcome to the new ladies, I am really sorry for your loss though you will find the most amazing women in this thread xxx

    Shan - hmm I understand what you mean about questioning wheather you want to go back to something that you know and is stressful. GL in whatever you decide is right for you xxx

    Lisa- yep I have a greeaaaat feeling about you this month babe

    Hope- sweetie hope you are just wonderful

    Megan - yay another scan to see you precious bean xx

    big hello to all the lovely ladies mwahxxxxx

    Well for this is the week of lots and lots bd'ing!! I brought some pre-seed stuff of lullaby conceptions has anyone else used this? It is meant to be a good sperm friendly lubricant. As last month we sometimes used a normal lubricant which can act a barrier for the spermes (I didn't realise ).

    So come gals lets have loads of BFP

    xxxxxx

    Hi girls,
    Sounds like there's been a shagathon going on at some of your places!!! I can't wait to hear about your XMAS BFP's-- I just know there's going to be some!!
    I've been very slack in posting and keeping up with all of you gorgeous ladies. But I have still been checking in on you every day. I've had contiual brown spotting for the past two weeks now and it is definitely doing my head in, as you can imagine. As you know the scan last friday was positive so I'm trying to focus on that. Last night though I actually passed a small clot bout the size of a little finger nail and I thought that was IT! But the spotting seems to have really eased now (touch wood) and I'm hoping it stays that way. I have another ob/gyn appmnt on Tuesday so I'll beg him to do another scan-- I'm already feeling very anxious about it and half expect to see an empty sac or something equally distressing. ANYHOO I hat being such a negative nancy but it's mighty hard not to be after what has gone before.
    Shan-- Great news on the job! Maybe this job came your way for a reason? And you know the old saying about concieving the minute you stop thinking about it!! It might take the stress out of it if you have other things to think about and challenges to overcome. Plus you've lost nothing if you give it a go and then decide it really isn't for you. You can always leave- there's nothing stopping you.
    Megan-- Have fun tomorrow. Try to enjoy it as much as you can!! I'm so jealous. I really wish someone could just knock me out until I was about 13 weeks!
    Lisa-- What did your np say about your lovely ovaries?? Are they cooperating?
    Kez-- Hubby must be excited about what you've got in store for him! He won't know what's hit him. I remember when we first started TTC my DH said "I hope it doesn't work first time around"-- he was too focussed on the shagging!! I'll bet he'd take it back now. I know the last couple of times he was like "are we seriously doing it again tonight?" He started to call it "downloading"!! On a different note, how are your pups going? Stelly is runniong around like a complete pork chop now and has just got the full nod from the specialist in Brisvegas. The plate can stay in her little leg too they said- you can actually feel it through her skin-- eewww!
    to all Mako, Hindonly and Tanya and all you other lovely ladies that i SHOULD remember-- is it too early to blame preg. brain??

    Good morning I had a sleep in this morning, a much needed one. I went to see Elton John in Sydney last night and we didn't get home until 1:30 (getting out of the entertainment centre carpark, what a nightmare!) - brilliant concert though. Fortunately, today there's industrial action over the new IR laws and the school's shut until lunch. Feel a bit guilty about not getting to a meeting, but certainly support the protest. Other news is that I finally got into the dentist yesterday straight after school and I have an abscessed tooth - a back molar that I can't afford to lose so now I'm on antibiotics with an appointment to see an endodontist in two weeks. And I think I O'd on Monday or Tuesday, because I got a +OPK but my temperatures are still zigzagging so FF doesn't think I have. Oh well.
    Mummyto1, re: your question about OPKs, the only positive one I had before m/c was the cycle I got pg and it was really, really dark and the following day's OPK was still pretty dark, but not as dark as the control line. This week's was only just as dark as the control line and registered next to nothing on the days either side. If I have O'd, it's very late. So I strongly suspect AF is just days away.
    Hi, Belinda! Yes, it's good to see a familiar face but I wish with all my heart that we were both still in the June 1-15 belly buddies thread. Maybe we will graduate out of here at the same time, that would be wonderful.
    Shan, the job opportunity sounds like an interesting conundrum! Hope you're successful, you could always decide later if you want to keep going with it. As my DP has pointed out to me in the past, slavery has been abolished!
    Mako, how are you going? Hope you're ok.
    Lind, are you back from school camp yet - looking forward to hearing if you managed to solve the beeping thermometer challenge!
    Chepie, the pre-seed is excellent. I had success first time I used it. And I used it again on Sunday, so it's worked this time, too.
    Sticky vibes and positive thoughts for you Megan and Hope! Good luck with the all your scans!!
    Good luck Morganj and Lisa, hindonly and Tanya! Hope we'll all see a BFP for Christmas! And hello to everyone else, who I've missed It's going to take a little while to learn everyone's names!
    love and hugs

    Helloooo gals,

    i just got back from the IR rallie in Melbourne - it was great and there was a cast of thousands.

    Not much to report - went to see the NP last night and she said I had ovulated and now its just a waiting game, although Im not too confident and she did mutter something about xmas, but she did say it was very close now and my body is in perfect balance and ready to carry a bub.

    Sorry no time for personals - will bbl

I think i o'ed on day 16-17 but htis month i have had no ewcm to speak of and my pre-seed only arrived last night so i think we've missed the boat this month

    The month i conceived i felt a massive O pain adn had ewcm - so i just feel i'm out of the running and am devastated. i would so love a chrismans baby,

    Dh was like how do you know i and said " i just do" it's so different from the month i concieved

    hey can you check out my chart to see what my chance were of cathcing the egg( i feel like it's none) i have put the CL in myself but have no real idea. On CD 11 i had a 11mm follie but am assumoing i have o'ed on CD18/19

    Hi everyone... Thanks very much for your thoughts. Hope and Kerry, I think you guys are right. I can always leave if i don't like it and I agree, maybe the distraction would be good for me....okay....now to wait and see what happens. They said they hoped to have an answer by Monday at the lastest, so I guess i just hang out till then.

    Morgan - thanx babe - it'll just be normal office hours (i think) mon - fri, but i'd have to work every 2nd Saturday, but getting a day off during the week that i work the Sat, so it's not too bad. We'll wait and see what happens, but you could be right....the distraction could do me the world of good. I thought they were keen when they rang me the other day, but after yesterday, I'm not too sure...oh the joys....xxx

    Kez - bugger about the lubricant last month, but the pre-seed will do the trick. Good luck and fingers crossed you catch that eggie..xxx

    Hope - Good luck with your appt sweetie. I'm sure that they will do another scan for you and you'll see a nice big heartbeat fluttering on the screen.....everything will be fine - i know it..

    Kerry - bugger about the tooth. Hope they can fix it up quickly. I'd take your +ive OPK over your temp so don't worry too much about it. Fingers crossed you caught that little eggie...xxxx

    Lis - Your NP sounds very hopeful so i'm sending out all the the sticky vibes and baby dust that i can muster. You certainly deserve a BFP and you will definately have it by Xmas.....mwah...xxxx

    Princess - I went in to have a look at your chart but the link only takes you to the home page and not your chart. You need to get the link from the 'sharing' part i think. That way we'll all be able to see it....Good luck hun and i hope for your sake that you did catch that eggie...

    Hi to everyone else and i'll pop back in later if i get a chance...xxxxx

    Princess - I went to look at your chart too, but it only took me to the home page.

    Hi to everyone else. Hope you are all having a wonderful day

    Hi Princess....it's hard to tell considering that you've missed a heap of temps, but i noticed that you had a +ive OPK (or did you put that in to get the coverline????). If it was a true OPK, then i'd take that as your O day. Other than that, I don't really know....sorry....hopefully someone else can help you out a bit.

    Princess - I've always O'd around CD18/19 on Clomid too. Looking at your chart, you had a good temp rise around that time. And a +opk which could be for before, during, after O time. I'd say you are still in with a good chance, and not to give up yet *hugs*. If only we could find out instantly, life would be so much easier

    HIya gals,

    Shan - IKWYM about the job front but I suppose its about choosing the lesser of two evils. On one hand its great to be busy to help keep your mind off things and on the other it can be a bit stressful and combined with the stress of ttc it can all get too much sometimes, but then with a job at coles or somewhere you will no doubt get bored and the motonony can easily bring you down and give you so much more time to ponder ttc and it could inturn make you more crazy (not that I think your crazy - its just a figure of speech). So its a matter of deciding what is right for you at this time in your life. Trust your instincts and im sure you will make the right choice.

    Megan - any news honey on your scan??

    Belinda - how are you going sweets? Is your cycle behaving?

    Princess - hi sweety... i dont chart hun so i cant really give you advice on your chart, but I will pray that you caught that little eggy this month

    Tanya - how are you? In the TWW??

    Kerry - I hope you did O and bd around that time! trying to understand what your body is doing can be so frustrating! Its really sad to have you and Belinda in here but I hope you can both graduate together really soon.

    Kez - praying that the preseed does the trick and you dont miss the boat this month! I wish i could wave a magic want and get you all preggers with one swift movement of the hand! But for know I will stick to praying for you all.

    Morgan - hope you are doing well sweety. Any sign of af or O?

    Hind - where are things with you - are you gearing up for O or has that happened?

    Mummyto1 - welcome to our group - i am deeply sorry for your loss sweety and hope you will be blessed with a sticky bfp soon. Look forward to chatting with you and cheering you through this new ttc journey.

    Lou, Cilmum, Susie, Mako - hope you ladies are doing well and keeping up your ttc efforts in hope of a nice chrissy bfp.

    Hope - sending you big hugs and praying that this is the end of the brown cm visits and you will see a stronger than ever little bubba next week!

    Amy / Missy/ Michelle and all the other pg bellies that come to visit - all my love and big belly rubs to you all.

    A big hi to anyone I have missed! There are too many gals in here now - we need to clear this thread and bombard the gals in PAML!

    Me - not feeling sooo positive about a bfp but thats okay as the NP has assured me it will be soon. It means I can have some wine over xmas and wont have my head bowled over in a toilet LOL!!

    You've got a point there Lis, at least with this job it won't be monotamous and i'll be doing a few days here and a few days in there other office, so i guess it would be a good thing...thanks, you've lifted my spirits (as have the rest of you). I think it too could be that i'm scared to get back into the workforce. It's been 3 years now since i worked for someone other than family, and it's a scary thing....bit like getting pg after a m/c i guess, coz i know that that will scare the crapper out of me. Why can't life just be easy and straightforward???????

    Hi all,

    I've not read the thread for a few days & it's taken me ages to read & do personals in reply & then I stupidly closed the window I was writing in & it's all gone! grrrr. I'll do personals later tonight or tomorrow. But in the meantime - g'luck for all waiting to test, have fun for all on the bd journey, hello to all the newbies - sorry you're here, but glad you found this thread - all the women here are simply gorgeous, as you will discover.

    Feel dopey today with all the wisdom I lost yesterday when I had my 2 teeth out! I look like a lopsided chipmunk today...

    Well, I think we've missed the googie this month - or it's still yet to happen - I have no idea where I'm at. This is what I posted in another thread, but maybe someone in here can help me. I was CD12 yesterday - the day I've always assumed I O on. Did OPK CD10, 11, 12 & today, all negative. But day before yesterday (CD11) I had lots of EWCM. So what does this all mean? If OPK had showed positive on CD9 (when I didn't test) would it still be + the next day? Or did I just miss it? How long does it read + for? Does EWCM happen before, during or after O?

    Shan - g'luck with the job. I suppose with you not knowing if you really want it or not means you won't fret about it over the weekend & you can leave it in the hands of fate - if you're meant to be doing it, you'll get it, if not, something else is meant for you.

    Love to all. xx
