    Thank you Lisa - my tummy was in knots too. Especially when I couln't see a heartbeat on abdominal view (damn retroverted uterus) but I could see a nice, round black circle of fluid which is a good sign. *Alf* was little and there was a hearbeat on "dildo cam" and a measure of 6w2d which is well within normal ranges. Soooo YAY!!!! We have a heartbeat!!

    Now ... about this CM ..... it could be good. Anything else at the moment????

    Hi Michelle

    What wonderful news about your scan - you must be so relieved. Just keep the positive thoughts going and visualise your beautiful baby growing bigger and stronger day by day. Even though I am new to this thread, you have given me some reignited hope.

    Take care

    Lou

    Awww thanks Lou!! I know the other girls who made this journey before me also helped give me hope on days when I didn't have any. Pleased to be of service and return the favour to others

    Well, DH told his parents tonight and they are suitably excited. I also called his great aunty, who is a nun, and she was ecstatic. It is her 60th anniversary of her profession today which is amazing in itself but this, she tells me, makes her day. I couldn't have got this far without the support of the nuns so I was happy to share this news with them.

    Baby dust to you all!! There have been a few departures from PAML so who's coming over to keep me company? I've got about 34 weeks to go

    Hey Ladies,

    Lisa - I had lots of creamy CM in the early stages of this pregnancy, actually, right up until about 14 weeks or so. Sometimes it was really icky, but mostly it was kinda like O time but extra cloudy. It was weird. BUT I reckon it's a good sign. You must let me know anything else!!!

    Michelle - You never mentioned you had DILDO CAM today!!!!!!!!!! :eek: So it was EXTRA exciting. LMAO. Sorry, probably not funny. Glad to see that Alfalfa has a nice strong heartbeat. You just wait, you'll be in the waiting room for you 12w scan before you know it!

    Love Jayne xox

    It's OK Jayne - I thought of you when this morning when I was going to the appointment I chose NOT to call it dildo cam to the sonographer but it gave me some humour at the beginning of a stressful day. I wouldn't say extra exciting but it gave me a special view of *alf* ... in more ways than one

    Hey Michelle-Great news on your scan. I hope you have a rest of a healthy pregnancy.

    Lisa-I had lots of CM during my last 2 pregnancies. I even had to wear something the whole time. In fact, that was why I suspected I was pregnant this last time. Hope you were successful this time.

    Kez-How's your Clover doing? Our golden just went in this morning to have a C-section because we found out all 7 of her puppies died and she has a massive infection. We are so dissappointed. We hope this isn't too bad for her since she our breeding female. She is also my favorite because she is so good with our kids. Are you in your 2WW yet?

    Megan-I hope that you get your BFP. This whole process can drive you nuts. Good Luck next week.

    Well, thanks to all who reassured me on the OPK's because it is flaming postive today. I'm so glad that this is a good sign that I am most likely going to O and not have as long of a cycle this time. I don't know how many more times my DH can BD. Last night was already pushing it. But I'm sure I can convince him somehow. My temp was up this morning too. How do you post your FF link and ticker? I tried to do it but I'm computer challenged since my husband works on electronics and computers for a living.

    I love knowing I have you guys here to tell this stuff to. It would be awkward to call a friend and tell her"I got a positive OPK!!!" Thanks again and hope everyone that I missed is doing well!!!

    Hello Michelle,
    A very big CONGRATULATIONS on "ALF's" heartbeat. So very happy for you.

    Chicken, How are you doing? I would like to say that I feel that I don't know a great deal about pcos. I do know that I only have so called mild pcos.I only found out that I had it in May after I had blood tests when I saw gyn/ob regarding my m/c's. I had very irregular cycles ranging from 28 days to 83 days. I started 50mg of clomid in May. My blood test levels were :22/06/06 - 138.0, 25/07/06 - 78.7, 28/08/06 - 55.5. I didn't take clomid in September due to a ovulation cyst I had developed and had drained. I took my last tablet on Wednesday night and haven't had any side effects so far. I have to go for b/t on cd 23 and am currently on cd 11 so fingers crossed. I think the laps are not too bad except for the shoulder tip pain. I have to say that I do have a really high pain threshold though as I live with pain everyday due to a back injury sustained at work 4 years ago.
    I'm pleased that you are seeing someone who specialises in pcos. Ley me know how you get on and what they say.
    Hi to everyone else and I hope you all have a good day.

    Hi everyone

    Thanks Mako for your insight. I too have mild PCOS which was diagnosed after an ultrasound revealed too many follicles in each ovary. Endo was found during my lap and was around my right ovary, fallopian tube and attached between my ovary and uterus. It has dragged my ovary down, so FS doesn't know if it will function. Found my lap to be quite uncomfortable, especially the gas. FS says m/c's most likely caused by PCOS rather than endo. Ovulation is affected by both. Have just started on Metformin which is used to control insulin resistance, hence regulating hormone function of the ovaries (I think!!!!!) and can be used with clomid. So will see how it goes for a while.

    Lisa - symptoms are kicking in beautifully. Gotta love those sore boobs LOL!!!

    Misskg - just make sure you BD the day of and day after your positive. My DH always needs to be persuaded one way or the other at the end of O time. Maybe a nice dinner and some wine???? It works with mine.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Lou

    YAY YAY YAY.....I'm FINALLY back online...

    Well, the big move went well, except they forgot to put the remote into the truck for the Hydrolic lift, so we had to lift stuff up into the truck ourselves, which was a huge pain in the butt, but when we returned the truck and went to pay, they gave us a really good discount because of it, so we ended up saving about $150...which is a bonus.

    I LOVE my new house and am slowly slowly unpacking. My fur-babies have settled in really well (especially the cat - which was a worry for me) and we are all happy. I have been wondering about you guys so much over the last week and a half, and am stoked now that my internet is finally up and running. So much to catch up on though...so i'll get to personals once i catch up.....

    Lisa - just quickly, I hope your dream about me comes true...wouldn't that be awsome. AF arrived on Wednesday but has been a bit here and there, but my mindframe is sooooo much better than it has been over the last 6 months and i think i'm ready to start temping and stuff again....thanks so much for all your support recently it means the world to me.......and good luck to you my darling...i'm sure you'll be announcing a BFP really soon...

    Hi to everyone else and to the newbies......hope you are all doing well and know that i've missed each and every one of you.....Catch up soon...xxxx

    Hello gals,

    Shan - yipeee your back!! Im so glad the move has brought about a renewed enthusiams and good energy for ttc. I pray the fresh Sunbury air can work wonders for you hun. Im so glad you are all settled and your fur babies are comfortable in their new home. Make sure you get yourself to Angelino's in Sunbury - the best food (the chef is a good friend of ours - so if its not as great as I say it is, let me know). well now that af arrived, you are ready to start a new cycle and I pray that it will end with nice BFP for you my sweets.

    Michelle - oh hun I am so relieved for you. I assumed you would have dildo cam as generally they cant get hb without it at such an early stage. Your little alfalfa will grow into a full sprout before you know it! Not much else on my front, we dtd last night again JIC the cm was due to late O, but im pretty sure I O'd earlier due to having ewcm, but who knows??

    Jayne - well if lots of cm is good, then "I WANT MORE" LOL! I dont mind feeling like ive wet my pants all the time, as long as it means im getting closer to that bfp. No other real symptoms to speak of though, its still oh so very early in the tww. But I noticed had some stabbing pain in my bbs today which occured a few times this morning, but as we tend to over anlyse every little things its probably just the after effects of dh's *playtime* with them last night

    Lou - its so exciting when one of the gals in here gets the bfp and heads to PAML, its very inspiring and gives us all that little bit of hope we need. I read someones signature earlier today and there was a beautiful saying (cant remember exactly) and it goes something like 'when the world tells us to give up, hope whispers "give it one more try" '.

    Missy - YAY on your +ve OPK!! IKWYM about telling someone IRL about it! Maybe you and dh should engage in some massage (with oils) tonight to help pep him up for his big task! Might give his batteries a bit of a recharge

    Mako - hi sweets. I hear you re the shoulder tip pain! I was crying b/c of it and my dh kept having to rub the shoulder. I hope your journey ends with a bfp soon darling.

    Hope - I know some of the girls here have taken Vitex to help with their LP. I think there is a thread somewhere on it where you can read more into it. And you are so right that at times the www doesnt help our case - it can make you nuttier! Im using pure progesterone cream as Im low in prog and I start using that Day 15 of my cycle. Im hoping it works to help stick bub into place. Speak to your gynae if you are really worried.

    Megan - PMSL at the 'snot like' qoute you found - see Im not the only freak!! But seeing you have had extra cm, well that could be a sign too (read Jayne's post somewhere above this one). IKWYM about 'obsessing' and hiding away a little. But I find that being on BB, I release all my anxiety etc and then go on to have a 'not thinking about ttc' day.

    Sez - Hi There (I missed your post and emailed you today wondering where you have been!). At this stage im hopeful of pg by the end of this year. And ive been sooo busy at work its crazy! You sound like your in wonderful spirits - and so you should be! Give yourself a little belly rub from me. I dont think im going to be online while im away BUT I will find an internet cafe and drop you gals a line to give you an update! Unless someone wants to offer to recieve SMS updates and post for me!

    Kez - hey matey, hows the tww going?? Any symptoms??

    A big hi to everyone else

    Me - well nothing to report really. Been having some extra cm today but nothing to write home about. Other than that I feel a little indigestion which is usually what makes me suspect im pg, but i think it might have been the pasta I had for lunch. Ive still got a week and a half to go before testing, so will try and not think about it til then - yeah right!!

    Lisa, we'll definately check out Angelino's at some stage, and i hear you on the indigestion. When i was pg with my angel I had heartburn so bad, and now everytime i get it i go running for the HPT just in case, mind you i haven't had a BFP since then, so i reckon when i do eventually get pg again, and the heartburn starts, I won't belive that it's related.....oh the things we put ourselves through whist undertaking this TTC journey...xxx

    Lisa- I am getting ready to prepare myself for the TWW, hmmm seems like a very long time....

    I've only just had to endure yet another m/c - our 4th The hcg levels were so low that I did know there was a v.good chance we'd lose this one.

    Thought this would be the best forum to be a part of since you all know what I"m going through.

    I'm feeling pretty upset and disappointed and am starting to ask myself if any preg's will be successful or if Im going to have to go through this pain over & over!

    It wears me down so much. But having said that we'll keep trying because our desire to have a second child is so gr8.

    Having my dd makes me feel very blessed - at least I do have one child:-) who makes me smile everyday as does my wonderful dh!

    Hi there Hindonly,
    I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss. I wish I could come and give you a great big hug so I'm sending you a cyber hug instead . Take good care of yourself and I'm here if you need a chat.

    Hindonly-I'm so sorry for your loss. We will be thinking of you. I know what you mean by at least having a child at home. It doesn't make it hurt less, but they help ease the empty arms.

    My OPK is still very positive today. Is that normal and what does that mean? It is just as dark today as it w'as yesterday. I'm a little concerned since my temps are all over the place but I wonder if it has to do with being sick last week. I've been so good at taking at the same time so I don't know what to think. I guess I'll wait and see. How can I link my FF chart to my signature. I'm so dumb when it comes to these things and I've looked all over this forum to try to find some help but maybe I'm just not looking in the right spot.

    Hope everyone has a good weekend!

    Hi Hindonly

    Sorry to hear about your loss. I am new to this group of wonderful ladies and they have provided some great support. M/C is both a paniful and frustrating experience to go through and you do find yourself wondering if every pregnancy will be the same. We too are deperate for our second child and have days where it is all too much. Keep positive!!!!

    HI Missykg

    Thought I would do a quick reply. I have had two strong positives in a row....may just mean you have high levels of LH. Just remember to keep up the BD. I did temps for 3 months and found the whole process tedious....and there was a month where I was sick and it threw everything out of wack.
