    Michelle, I like that - new thread=new start! Good positive thinking! I hope you are going along okay. Thanks for your support, I'll probably pop in tomorrow to share, but I'm doing okay tonight, just got myself into a bit of a state earlier!

    Sez honey - you know you don't have to do it alone. There are a bunch of women here who think nothing of holding you hand and giving you a hug when you are having a bad day.

    As for me - 6 days to go to D-day. I have cramping already which could be good and could be bad. Who knows. Either way DH and I had a few tears last night and he is looking forward to no drugs and a chance to re-group for a little while if it doesn't happen this month. He is just finding it hard that he can't make it better and fix things for me.

    Other than that I have my parents down for the NRL grandfinal (booo - swanies lost today but Jayne will be one happy chooky ) which is nice AND I have an end of year function for the football team I work for on Wednesday so I am planning a big night.

    to everyone. Let's get this thread emptied!!!!!

    Good morning lovely ladies!

    Lisa, I hope you are doing okay. It just doesn't seem right that the weather should be so good when you're so sad, does it? The first time I left the house after my d&c (three days after) the sun was shining and I just wondered how everything could look so lovely when I was so miserable. I hope that af shows up for you soon sweetie, and that it's not too terrible. I am thinking of you, please let me know if there's anything I can do. Good luck with your OB tomorrow, I hope it goes well. And I'm still keeping your seat warm.......

    Michelle, that the cramping is a good thing for you! It must be hard for your dh as well, I guess he feels a bit helpless. It is very sweet that he's so worried about you though. Good on you for enjoying your week! I hope you're enjoying seeing your parents, and make sure you have a ball on Wed night! Thinking of you, counting down until Friday.

    Belle, how are you going hun? I hope the tww is being good to you, and absolutely flying by! I have got everything crossed for you that this is your month! Just checked out your chart again LOL! No temps for the weekend, you must enter them on Monday. I'm dying to see what your temps are doing, now I have to wait!

    Sarah, how's things? I'm sure you're recovering after that fab win yesterday! Let me know how you are......

    Kate, haven't heard from you the last few days. Hope that you're okay. Has af arrived yet? I sort of hope so, so you can get on with making those rabbits green! Thinking of you sweets, let us know how you are.

    Paige, hope the tww is being good to you too. Any *symptoms* yet? Bring on the testing!

    Jayne, GO EAGLES! And your boyf had a good game too. Kelly will be happy. Can I just say, the weagles are the best looking team by a long shot LOL! Mmmmmmmm

    Shan, how are things going in your world? Any closer to finding a house?

    Tanya, the boy thing must be very confusing and tricky at times. I'm sure it will all be worth it though! I'm assuming that you'll find out the sex????????

    Hope, I just stalked your chart! No coverline, but it was looking good for O this weekend, hey?! I hope you got in heaps of bding JIC!

    Kelly, see you PAML, now that I've finally posted in there. I wasn't going to but someone welcomed me!!!

    Okay, I think i've almost run out of words!

    For those who asked, I've just been a bit down about this pg since Friday night. I woke up at midnight with some cramping and got myself into a state. Convinced myself that I was never going to have a baby and all that. The cramping continued yesterday until the afternoon. I know that it means squat, it's just hard not to stress sometimes. I am now feeling much more reassured and positive again. POAS this morning (I know, I'm hopeless) and the line came up faster, darker and stronger than ever, so I'm sure everything is just fine. Looking forward to my appt on Thursday!

    I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday! Love to all, Sez xoxo

    Oh Sez...you poor thing. I can only imagine how you must have been feeling. I haven't been pg yet since my m/c 2.5 years ago, but still to this day my biggest fear is of actually getting pg, and then losing another angel.....hhhmmm....maybe that mindset is what's stopping me....okay...time to re-evaluate things i think....You'll be fine hun, and so will your little bubba. I'm okay at the moment. DH started his new job last week and came home yesterday, after looking at another house. I decided that this is going to be very hard, considering he can only look at houses on the weekends (and the fact that i miss him like crazy when he's not home!!!) i've decided that i'm going back to Sunbury with him today and will spend the week down there looking at houses etc. There's a few that i have my eye on, but i guess it's just a matter of our applications and what we can afford.....

    So my lovelies, i don't know if i'll get a chance to hop on at all in the next week, so if i don't, i love you all and I want to be seeing some BFP's when i get back...

    Big hugs to you Lisa, and i hope you are doing okay. Good luck with your appointment.

    Shan, you must miss dh so much! I know that would drive me nuts. Good on you for coming down this week, i'm sure you'll find something good. I know it's awful, I hate house-hunting, but it'll be worth it. GOOD LUCK! I know what you mean about being afraid of being pg again, but you know what.......at the end of the day there is nothing you can do about it. I think a positive frame of mind is always a good thing, so I'm trying to stick to that! We will all be there for you when it's your turn .

    Have great week with dh, looking forward to seeing you back next weekend!

    Hello loves,

    Sez - im glad your feeling better sweety, im sure the cramping just means your insides are making room for baby. You crack me up with POAS! You are an addict woman. Yes I havent been outside yet today, got all the blinds closed and watching crappy american sitcoms.

    Michelle - oh hun I hope the cramping is a sign of good things to come for you sweets. Ive got everything crossed for you, it has to be your month!

    Shan - hope the housing hunting goes well and you find something you love. Maybe change of house, location etc will do wonders for your mind and body and a new bfp. I sure hope so sweety.

    Kate - how are you going babe?

    Paige - any good symptoms yet sweety? I hope your tww ends with that bfp!

    Belle - how are you going sweety? Your surely nearly out of the tww?? I hope you get a nice suprise hun.

    Tanya - how is the boy bd fest going?

    Sarah / Kelly - hey there, hope all is well in pg land!

    Hope - where are you at with your cycle / baby-making?

    Kez - how are you? Has af arrived yet?

    Jayne / Danni thanks for all your support gals, hope to see you in PAML before you guys leave!!

    Thank you all for your support and beautiful words. Im doing well but have really bad af pain and the bleeding has just started so Im happy for that IYKWIM? Im disappiointed but it hasnt been as hard as loosing my first angel. Im just trying to stay positive that know that my body understands it can get pg again, it will happen in the next couple of months. I wont be taking a ttc break just yet ladies, so im still here and ready to go!

    Love to you all, and bring on some more HEALTHY BFP's in here!

    Lis,

    Hi all,

    I hope you don't mind if I join in too. Have been lurking, but convinced myself that I would have a BFP last month, sadly not.

    I am off to gyno on the 14th November due to being diagnosed with PCOS, so maybe something will happen soon....

    hi girls,

    Lisa I am sorry for your loss sweety *hugs*

    Shan I hope you find a house this week I can only imagine how hard all of this is for you atm I would go insane LOL.

    hi to everyone else and a huge congrats sez on your bfp that is great,


    me
    well I am trying to wait till the specialist appointment before ttc again but cant help thinking should we just start now and see what happens or should we wait for the all clear to make sure we have the best chance, although I must say we are both incredibly stressed and need to get a few things sorted in order to feel happy again and the biggest thing is finding a house and we are currently argueing over where we are going to move as I dont really want to move where he wants to move as its a long way from anything and I am not use to that so who knows what will happen LOL,

    BBL

    Hi Ladies,

    I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend - we're getting some beautiful weather over in Perth - it's great. Not to mention the big AFL win by the mighty Eagles!!! What a fantastic game and great result. My boys certainly were looking good too - damn sexy!!! I'm so glad they had a win!

    Lisa - How are you holding up honey? You sounded quite good in your post, if so, that's great sweety. Hang in there. I'm also pleased that you're not going to wait - get straight back in there - I just know you'll have that bfp in no time at all. I'm thinking of you every day!

    Michelle - oooohhh, cramping is definitely a good sign - only 5 days to go now - it's going to fly and I'm praying there's a BFP at the end of it!! You totally deserve it honey and I just know its around the corner. You're sounding really good too - all the very best!!

    Shan - Enjoy your week of house hunting - I hope all goes really well and you find the perfect place. Must be soooo frustrating for you!! Definitely think that a new house will be great for you mentally - so all the very best!!

    Amy - all the best for your appointment - when is it?? I hope you can get everything sorted and get back into the wonders of ttc again really soon!

    Sez - So glad to see you posted in PAML - everyone has been great, so make sure you keep it up. Although it does get awfully confusing between the two threads but I just can't seem to leave this one just yet - I feel very 'at home' here and just love you all!!! I am glad to hear that you're doing ok - I got really worried when I read your first post - scared the c**p out of me! Don't keep it all in either - it does help to talk about all your concerns - I certainly know that!!!

    Kate - How are you?? I'm kind of hoping af hasn't arrived yet - if not will you test again?? I'm praying there's still a bfp waiting for you!! Let us know how you're going!

    Paige/Belle - Hows the tww going?? I'm thinking you must nearly be at the end of it?? Any *symptoms* yet? I do hope it's going well - we need some more bfp's in here!! Can't wait to hear from you both!

    Tanya - How are you going honey?? I'm so sure that little blue bundle will be here before you know it!!

    Hope - Someone mentioned you may have O'd this weekend - I certainly hope so and that you got heaps of BD'ing in!!! Ooohh, that means there may be another one in the tww - GL.

    Hmmm - I think I've missed a couple of people - terribly sorry but I do hope all is going well.

    As for me - same old, same old at the moment. Nothing much to report. Still feeling rather tired in the avo's and have FINALLY started getting slightly sore bbs - I think they're finally starting to grow!!! About bloody time too!!! It's great but still nothing must to write home about!! DH had a busy day today - did a bit of a backyard blitz at our house - it's great. Put some new lawn down (finally covered some of our sand), moved a tree, put up some nature screen stuff to cover the fence. It's great. He even built a little water feature - I'm so proud. We've still got more to do over the next few weeks and will even attempt a deck - it's going to be great!!

    Talk soon.

I am so over it I just wish it would heal... it's so ugly.. Sorry enough of my self pitty... I hope that you are feeling better soon

    I really got teary reading all of that.
    I have been babysitting my nephew the last few days and haven't been able to get on. Lisa I am so, so sorry and i hope you are ok. You sound very positive, i am thinking of you.

    Just to give you all a quick update....got my blood test results back and obst. said there is a chance i could be pregnant....now this obviously freaked me out! My HCG levels were low but apparently high enough to be very, very early preg. So i had another blood test on sat and will get the results about tuesday. Very confused and don't really think i am pregnant (based on a lack of bding!). I also did a preg test today and it was BFN and i think it would show up by now if i was. Tests show that i had ovulated though so hopefully if i will get my period finally if i am not pregnant. I think maybe my HCG levels are still coming down from last preg, but not sure i would ovulate if that was the case??? So confused, have to wait till tues!

    Sorry i can't catch up on all i have missed. Will start fresh this week now that i am back at work.

    Congratulations Naomi!!! I was thinking of you a couple of hours ago, wondering how you were!! Wow that's two pg girls who "weren't trying"

    Megan, I hope you are pg!! Wouldn't that be fantastic! Try to hang in there, it is a very frustrating time.

    Kerrie, how awful!! I hope you are doing ok, the scar sounds horrific, what a horrible reminder!

    Kell, so glad you are now happy with you assests!! LOL

    Michelle!! I hope you have a little bubba implanting nice and tightly!!

    Sez, I hope you have had no more cramping!

    Amy, when is your appointment? I hope you get the all clear!!

    Jools, Welcome I hope you can get a sticky bean ASAP!!

    Well I am on CD10 and I am very fertlie... I think I am going to O in the next few days!! Which will be a record for me! I am scared that all the boy signs won't line up and I won't have the best attempt... (weird I know!!)

    Oh well... *sigh*

    Oh my lordy girls-- sooo much info to compute!! V. difficult for me today as I'm a little hazy this morn!

    Naomi-- Sounds like you can pretty safely be assured that you are "duffed"! CONGRATS! I know it's hard not to be tentative after a previous bad experience but all you can do now is look after yourself-- the rest is out of your hands so try to ENJOY.

    Megan-- HHmmmm that is a head scratcher!!?? You must be hanging for tomorrow to arrive. I will stay tuned for the update. Do you have an ETA for the results?

    Kerry-- Don't ever think that you are "indulging" in self-pity. It's still fresh, you're just healing and I'm sure the scar is a constant reminder. Maybe think of it as a battle wound on your way to victory (cheesy I know).

    Sez-- It is absolutely understandable that you're apprehensive about this pg. I can certainly relate. All the fun and innocence is taken out of early pg. after you've experienced a loss-- I was a compulsive undie checker 2nd time around. It's hard too to come to terms with the fact that you're not incontrol of your body so all you can do is sit back and try to enjoy the ride. When is your first scan?

    Kelly-- Yay for you and your (soon to be) buxom bbs. It's nice to hear someone thinking of the upside during what can be such a stressful time for PAMLers!!

    Shan-- Don't you just love house hunting-NOT! It's closely trumped however in the list of "horrendous things to do" by actually MOVING into the aforementioned dwelling! I do believe I hate moving much more.

    TWWers-Paige & Belle & Michelle-- Well I suppose I've joined you now- though I am a little behind- think I've got a 9 day wait ahead of me?!? I hope that you have all not gone too mental in the lead up to testing. Easier to focus on the excitement/anticipation of it all. Can't wait to read about your BFP's!!

    Lisa-- Good on you for sticking with your TTC journey. That's how I felt after my recent loss as well. Waiting didn't help me last time so it was "back on the horse" (he,he,he) for me! I hope that after af disappears you can start to feel positive about the whole thing again. I have found that the good thing about not waiting is that you have less time to dwell and look back because you are focussing on the now and the future. I hope this is the case for you also.

    Jools-- welcome, welcome, welcome!! You'll love all the girlies in here. I'm pretty new on this thread myself and have found all ladies most friendly indeedy!

    As for me...I'm not holding out too much hope for this month. It is my first "proper" cycle after my m/c and d&c six weeks ago. My temps have been all over the shop-- I did get o pain earlier on and had a couple of +opks though. I really started temping to see if I was o'ing too late in my cycle and if that was possibly a reason for my m/c's. I haven't got FF fully sussed yet but I think I probably o'd on Day 18?? Is this too short a luteal phase if I normally have a 28-day cycle? I'll obviously have to keep an eye on my temps to see if I have really o'd. I'm having a progest. blood test this week so that should give me some more info. I've heard that low progest. levels can be a reason that a pg. can not be maintained. I'm kind of scared that if I do fall this cycle the same thing will happen before I can get into see my specialist (Nov. 6th).Oh well if I am fortunate enough to fall this cycle I'll just have to ring the ob.gyn's office and cry until he'll see me!!! Not positive that we "caught" o either as we've had lots of family gatherings, social commitments, etc. Might have to get another one in today just in case
    You've got to love a public holiday!!!
    I'm off later in the week for a little hol so don't know if i'll be able to check in-- aargh. Just realised this will be the first time since I discovered BB that I won't be looking at it everyday!
    Rabbiting now will bbl today to check in.

    You can do it Tanya! Come on boy spermies, get ready! GL hun. And thanks, the cramping has gone now.

    Welcome Jools, you've come to the right place, the girls in here are just FABULOUS! I don't want to leave them yet........

    Megan, I hope everyhting turns out the way you want it to.........whether that be a BFP, or af arriving

    Well done Naomi! What has Rick said? Looking forward to seeing you over in PAML!

    Kez, you poor thing, don't worry, nothing is TMI in here LOL! I hope your scar heals soon sweets, and that af comes soon.

    Hello to everyone else! BBL, love you all, Sez xoxo
