Thread: Trying To Conceive after Miscarriage or Loss ~ October 2006 #3

    Just wanted to say welcome to you Lou. Sorry you have to be here but hope that you stay for a short time.

    BD is going great. DH is sure having fun with it. I did have some spotting afterwards but it stopped right away. I guess that's normal so I won't worry. My CF went from EWCM to watery and still no + OPK's. Has anyone else had this? I guess I'll wait it out and see what happens with the temps. No change yet. At least no one else is sick in this house yet so maybe we escaped. But now the dog has fleas from DH parents dog. YUCK!! Now we get to fog the house.



    Will do personals later.

    Hi gals,

    Michelle - I miss you too but im so glad we have met - you give me so much inspiration and now with you getting pg it gives me great hope that I too will have a new little bean growing soon. Good idea to have your dh on the phone with you, and I feel so much better knowing that you know the sonographer Wishing you all the luck in the world for a wonderful scan and a little hearbeat. Like always, will be there holding your hand in spirit. Oh and I think 'lentil' is such a sweet nickname, I will use it for my little bean (when it arrives) in honour of your precious Caitlyn if thats ok.

    Jayne - thanks for the baby dust girly. Hope your doing really well!

    Missy - thats the thing with OPK's - they dont always work for everyone, but if you have had the ewcm then you can go by that. I hope you manged to get some good bd in.

    Lou - the tww is so hard isnt it?? I think Im officially in the wait now too. And im already having imaginary symptoms LOL!

    Where is everyone else?? Hope you are all well and working hard to get that bfp!

    Love to all,
    Lisa

    You can use *lentil* any time you like (can you make it soon ). I had the whole family calling Caitlyn *lentil* pre-birth. It was quite funny. I'll post to let you know as soon as I get back from the scan in the morning.

    Michelle, I just want to say good luck to you for your scan tomorrow.

    Lou, I have my fingers crossed that everything works out for you this time around.

    Tanya, I hope the boy thing works its magic for you.

    Hi to everyone else, I'm spreading loads of around for all to grab onto.

    Not much is happening here with me. Just waiting to "o" and get some bloods done and back to gyn on the 20/11.

    Michelle - Just letting you know I like the name 'Sprout' for you for this bubba. Let me know what you think!

    Lisa - What a doll using Lentil. I think it's gorgeous & a wonderful idea! Jessica was Bubble but sadly, this bubba doesn't have a nickname & it's getting a bit late in the game to introduce one. Oopsie daisy!

    Love Jayne xox

    Hey JAYYYYYNEEE!!! How are you going?? I think we will forgive you for not giving little bubba a formal nickname (oh you do have one - its 'little bubba' ). So what do you think - is it going to be a blue or pink bundle?? And how is sweet miss jessica going? Any advancement on the toilet training?? Oh and any news on Beccy?? PM me as soon as you know!

    Michelle - will be praying my heart out tonight for some great scan results for you. Best of luck sweety, just imagine all of us in there holding your hand. Sending you a big for tomorrow. Try and be relaxed and im sure you will have some great news for me by noon.

    Mako - hello, excuse my ignorance but will you have to get your bloods done at O time? And is that to monitor hormone levels?? I hope it all goes well for you and you get the results you want! Nothing like ttc aml is there? Im glad you have found us and we will support you 100% and more in your current ttc journey.

    Megan - where are you????? Arent you up for testing soon?? Are you hiding something? I sure hope youve got a bfp and your waiting for bt confirmation before you jump on here!

    A big hellp to everyone else,

    Im off home after a full day at the office - this election is making me . Oh well im only here for another week and then im on hols for a week (right around testing time dh and I will be visiting rellies in NSW - what timing!)

    Hope you all have a great night,
    Lisa

    Jayne - *sprout* is a little close to my nephew's nickname of sprat (as in Jack Sprat ) but DH has created his own version for this after hearing your option and has decided on *alfalfa* AKA *alf* (a type of sprout!!!!) He is an odd one that man of mine. We'll see if it sticks.

    Lisa - if your hand starts to hurt between 9am and 10am then it will be me taking you up on your offer

    Mako - thank you

    Michelle - Ooooh aaaaah, I love Alfalfa. What an awesome name. I love it!!! Yes, I can see Sprout wouldn't work with Jack Sprat.

    Lisa - My slurry mummy friend, how are you?????? LMAO. I think it's not so long until you're over in PAML! How is everything going? I'm not really sure if I have pink or blue, I'm really, really hopeless at guessing & we didn't find out at the scan on Friday so we are completely in the dark! Jessica is going great. Her toilet training is going fairly well. I'm just letting her do it at her own pace because she is not 2 yet and at home there is rarely any wee accidents but Number 2's are becoming a bit of an issue. She tells everybody you do poos on the floor! The problem is, she won't tell me now if she's done it & goes about cleaning it up herself. I know, you're gagging, I'll stop - but you get the image!The other day at a gf's house we had an argument of wearing a nappy & she went & took it off and I was scared she'd pee on the floor or worse & I kept on saying make sure you do wees on the toilet (she had a potty) & while she was in her little friends room she peed on her dolly's potty!!! :eek: I think I have to stop telling Jessica to eat her dinner because we fed the ducks some bread yesterday & she was screaming at them all 'EAT YOUR DINNER NOW'. It must be what she hears everytime she eats. LOL. She is turning 2 in 6 weeks time. I can't quite come to grips with that. We jet off to Qld in 2 weeks & I CAN handle that! I have just realised I have given you Jessica's daily life story! LOL. I must go & organise dinner.

    Keep smiling!

    Love Jayne xox

    Hello ladies

    I hope you have all had a lovely day. I think I have my head wrapped around your names and where you are all at. Reading each thread has made me realise that I am not going INSANE!!!! But I am already feeling postive about things so a big big THANK YOU

    Lisa - That TWW is just the pits. I get a range of symptoms every month - sore boobs, twinges, nausea, bleeding gums .... I swear my body deliberately plays tricks on me. Then AF comes and you have that huge let down and then it's back to the 'O' freeway of love.

    Tanya - start drinking loads of water to make good welcoming CM. I have been seeing an acupuncturist who swears by this.

    Missy - I have found OPK's really reliable. I had my first good positive for months. I had my EGCM on Wednesday and then I had my positive line on Saturday. Mine sometimes go from faint to nothing. I think it just depends on the concentration of the urine. Fingers crossed for BFP.

    Megan - fingers crossed for BFP.

    Mako - it would be good to get your take/insights on PCOS and how you have found Clomid. As I mentioned earlier I am seeing an acupuncturist fortunately she specialises in infertifilty/PCOS and is doing her doctorate in PCOS. How horrid are those laparoscopies????

    To everyone else take care. Go those little boys!!!!

    Lou (35) Dave (36) Sam (2)



    Kez - hope Clover is doing better.

    Thanks guys for the reassurance. I still am not feeling like I O but I've had some signs like EWCM and high cervix but my temps don't seem to show it. They just dropped today so we'll wait and see if the OPK seems to show something. I'll just keep taking them and hopefully get something, and since last cycle was so long, it may just be a while before I O on a regular basis.

    Things are pretty hectic around here with kids in school and it is my DH busy time at work. I also sell real estate part-time and I've been fairly busy with that. I'm also playing catch-up from being sick last week. It still amazes me how the house can turn into a tornado when mom isn't feeling up to picking up.

    I will check in later to do personals.

    Jayne - you crack me up and I PMSL at Jessica's potty training and 'EAT YOUR DINNER DUCKS' - that is soooo cute!

    Michelle - oh hun my stomach is in knots while I wait for your post - I think I will need YOU to hold my hand at this rate! Thinking of you sweets.

    Lou - its the worst, my mind is already playing trcks on me, and im not even sure I O'd! LOL!

    Missy - I hope you figure out what is going on with your body soon and your O gets back track!

    Tanya - hope your getting ready for O soon. How is the diet coming along?

    Kez - how are you doing babe? I hope the tww flies by for you.

    Mako - any sign of O?

    Shan/ Hope/ Amy/Megan - where are you my sweet peas?? Hope your all well and very busy with baby making and bfp's!

    Hi to everyone else,


    Me - sorry this might be TMI but I went to the loo this mornig and I had some CM and it was gooey and had little (snot like) pieces in. WTF?? Is this normal, ive never noticed it before.

    Hey girlies- How goes every little thing?
    I'm having a little freak out as since I've been charting I've discovered that I'm not O'ing until CD18 which means my LP is only 9-10 days long!! Not good. I've been reading and have seen a few sites that claim a LP that is too short can lead to miscarriage and I can't help but wonder if I fall into this category!!!??? My progest levels were 41nmol @ 5DPO last cycle (CD23) but AF came CD28. I'm now very concerned-- I know I shouldn't be reading this stuff on the net but I couldn't help myself. I'm now really unsure as to whether I should be TTC this cycle or not as I don't want to go through this for a third time. Just wondering if any of you know if there is anything that can be done if I do fall pg. ? Progest pessaries? I'm LOST and slowly losing my s#@t! :eek:

    Kez-- where are you? Hope TWW is NOT sending you round the bend!
    Lisa-- Could the CM mean you've O'd later than expected? Better BD just in case don't you think??!! I'm sure hubby would confer.
    Michelle-- great news on the hb!

    Hi everyone!
    Lisa was right in one sense, i have been hiding a little. The whole TWW thing is making me absolutely freaking mad, and i was spending every minute of the day, including waking up at night, thinking about it. I thought maybe if i had a little break from BB it might help with my obsession, but honestly it didn't. I definately am not hiding a BFP!! I am not due to test till at least next Tuesday, but haven't had any symptoms anyway. Though i have had a fair bit of creamy cm, is that a symptom??? Who knows, all i know is that i am so so so so so over this. The thought of not being pregnant again depresses me but the thought of being pregnant scares me so much that i don't even know what i want! Sorry i am rambling.....

    I know i tend to make excuses for no personals lately but its just that i am in a bad state at the moment and i just can't focus. I can't remember who i read was saying about the "imaginary symptoms", but i totally agree!!

    Good luck those that might get to test soon (LISA!), and good luck catching the elusive eggs everyone else!! Hope - i have no idea about short LP's sorry! and Lisa - i also have no idea about snot like CM either, but it did make me laugh!!
    Hopefully soon i will be put out of my misery, either way!!

    Hi girls! Good to see that you've been chatting up a storm over the last couple of days!

    Lisa, hun, I can't wait for you to test! Please tell me that you won't be offline when you're away! I will DIE if I have to wait to find out your news! I'm so saving the seat next to me in PAML, I really miss you! I hope your imaginary sypmtoms are all real! I had lots (and still do) of really creamy cm from about 5-6DPO. But I've heard of people having green cm and all sorts when they're pg! I think generally having lots, and increasing, cm is a good sign. You must be so OVER this election, and it hasn't even happened yet! At least it's distracting you from the tww LOL!

    Good luck to everyone else, we just had one graduate, and are due for another very shortly in PAML, so there's room for more!

    Hi Kez, Good to hear from you! If you get a line on your OPK as dark as the control line then it indicates that you will O in the next 12-36 hours. If the line is not as dark as the control line you might find it is as dark tomorrow or the next day which would mean you are still O'ing around CD18. Apparently your LP is usually pretty constant. I had a feint line today CD15 so I probably won't O until CD17 or 18. As for the cramping I often have it too around O time and it is usually in my right side but sometimes seems to move from side to side!? Who knows what the bloody hell our defective bodies are doing! I want a REFUND!! I hope lady Clover is making a speedy recovery.
    Lisa-- I had lots more CM both times I was pg. but it tended to be creamy more than anything else. Extra CM is a pg. symptom tho!!
