    Hi ladies. I was just going over the thread. I just wanted to say, never give up! We lost our last bub as missed m/c at 9 weeks. Lucky for us, we conceived again after just one cycle. So far so good. We are expecting healthy baby girl in about 14 weeks. Wishing you all the best for healthy and successful pregnancies. Mummyhood is wonderful

    Babydust to you all.

    Hayley I'm sorry for all the grief you've been through the last year. Welcome to this thread, and I hope you leave a smugly happy pg lady yourself It is hard to deal with well meaning but really hurtful "advice". So I totally hear you there.

    Kerry I'm in Sydney now, afer a fab stopover in HK. It's a bit cool for this time of year, and I've been up since 3am! But I'm just happy to be with family and friends.

    Annabelle :hugs: It just feels so unfair sometimes. But you're a wonderful supportive sister, and your nieces/nephews are lucky to have you for an aunt. As will be your kids when you do have them.

    Bettyboop I hope the spotting turns into AF. I totally understand your frustration.

    Hello to everyone else.

    My HCG levels had dropped to 5, but then last week, went back up to 8. This is bad news for me. I had thought that I was so close to normal, and had counted out the 6 months, after which we could start ttc again. I had gotten so excited, and I guess I had counted my chickens. But now that it's gone up, I wonder whether January holds chemo for me, and and no ttc until 2009.

    Sorry for dumping this on this thread, which should be full of hope and cheer. I just feel so down and hopeless. I couldn't sleep v well last night. And just feel like this has taken the shine off the joy of seeing everyone again. I don't want to be unhappy now, but just feel so hopeless. 2009 is so far away and I'll be so much older then.

    I know in the past I've been really melodramatic by expecting the worst. But somehow, whenever I get my hopes up, they're dashed.

    Hi everyone.
    Pash - Hope you're doing OK hun. Im sorry your HCG has gone back up. Hopefully its a one off, cause it only went up a tiny bit. I can understand your fear about chemo and frustration about having to postpone TTC further, and I'll have everything crossed for you that it isnt the case. Goodluck, and I hope it works out.

    Wow, this thread is quiet at the moment! Everyone must be busy with Christmas shopping and other preparations.

    My HCG went back down to 5 this week, which was wonderful news. I don't know what's going on with my body, but I wish it would just work itself out. Thanks Beaksie. I go through such ups and downs, along with my HCG. Reading my last post now, I wonder why I got so upset. But at the time, it was a different story.

    I'm still reading this post, hoping to hear about all the BFP's before Christmas.

    We have officially stopped trying and are commencing the process to become foster parents - but looks like we have a bit of a wait ahead of us to get approval, with the training scheduled for March next year. I think I can pretty much sum my life up as "a time of waiting"

    Hey Beaksie - I know you probably won't get a chance to read this for a little while, but I hope all goes well with the move, and hope you have a 'low drama' christmas with the family. Look after yourself during the move. Looking forward to seeing you back after your move (unless of course you get your BFP in that time!).

    Hi Pash - it is a little quiet in here at the moment ... I think you're right with everyone doing the christmas shopping and preps. Hope you're hanging in there.

    Hi MissBel - I'm sorry to hear that you've had to make the decision to stop TTC - I can't imagine the myriad of emotions that you and DH have gone through in your journey up to this point in order to make that decision. If you don't mind me asking, have you chosen to go down the path of foster care (as opposed to adoption) because it's a faster process? I hope that time travels quickly for you in this process. We would love to keep hearing from you - stay in touch.

    Hi to everyone else (please don't feel offended for the lack of personals today). I must admit, I've been lurking but not had anything much to report on myself. I'm nearly at end of TWW, so will be looking at testing in a few days. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for BFPs galore on this thread before christmas! I'm sure there's a few of us coming up for testing over this next week - HJ, LJ, Starrysky, Zionsmum???? Will catch up again shortly.

    kaib - Good luck with testing later in the week! We were told that adoption cases are very rare and a very long drawn out process. We are looking at a sibling program with foster care - which are placements up to 18mths - before we look at long term care.

    Hi MissBel - I sincerely hope that the waiting isn't too long for the foster care process - you will make very compassionate foster parents given the heart wrenching journey you've already been through to get to this point. I'd heard that adoption is a long & tedious process in Australia. I've already had discussions with DH as to if we can't have children of our own, we'd look to overseas adoption programs, but I've heard the process to go through overseas adoption can also be tedious and expensive.

    Hi Zionsmum - oh, that is such wonderful news, congratulations! I will be praying that this one digs in real deep for you.

    Thanks so much ladies! I wouldn't have made it through everything without belly belly I found this site right when I miscarried and its helped me through all my ups and downs. I can't wait to hear of the bfp's to come and they will come.


    Fingers crossed for you kaib~

    Woo hoo Diane - so very happy for you. What wonderful Christmas news! All the very best and i hope this is a very very sticky bub.

    MissBelinda - i think you are very brave and i really admire your strength of heart and character.

    Kaib - good luck with your testing and good luck to everyone else at end of TWW as well. Fingers crossed for you all.

    Pash - you are such a mighty strong chicky and i am soglad your hcg dropped for you.

    Beaksie - all the best for the move hun xxoo.

    Big squeezy hugs to everyone else!

    As for me, not much news really. Have just finished our week of BDing (five nights straight!) and hope that we did it when i was O'ing. FF has stuffed me round this month, not sure if i O'ed on day 14-15, (which matches my temps and CM), but it seems to think i O'd earlier, just because i had two nights earlier on where i woke up in a sweat. I am going with day 15 though i reckon.

    Just a quick qu. - has anyone ever used Preseed? It is supposed to be the only lubricant that helps conception and does not kill sperm. We used it this time, every night for the five nights... wonder if it will help?

    If not, then we are off to see fertility specialist on January 10 to hopefully get some answers and get put on the right path.

    Have a good night everyone and chat soon.
    LSB xxoo

    Hi LSB - yeh, I had difficulty with agreeing with FF this month - it initially said I o'd on day 15, but I reckon I o'd on 17. This makes it difficult to know when to test - I'm going to hold off until 14 DPO (based on ov at cd17) which is Wednesday for me. This was our fourth cycle at using pre-seed - I really do think it helps for us, as I have very scant CM so have always had to use a lubricant even before TTC. The pre-seed dries up faster than normal lubricant though, so we generally use two each time. Hope that isn't TMI!! Have fingers crossed for you that you caught the egg this month!

    MissBelinda I wish you all the best, no matter which path opens up for you. Do keep us posted with the foster process though. I'd love to know how you are going.

    Diane Congratulations! What wonderful news. I hope you get strong positive results from the bloods and it all stretches out into a lovely uneventful 9 months.

    LSB Wow! You have been busy

    All the ladies in the TWW, for when you do test.

    Hi everyone,

    I thought I'd better drop in and say hello! I've been pretty scarce in here lately - I've been struggling a bit emotionally with the Clomid and posting more in LTTTC and the TTC with Clomid/Metformin thread, we have been TTC for a year now But things are levelling out a bit for me now after finishing this months course of Clomid, so I am trying to stay relaxed about everything now. It has been difficult for me this year coping with the idea of Christmas, with feelings over the latest miscarriage being so fresh - I'm still dreading it a bit unfortunately

    I should O later this week, so we are at it like rabbits ATM. I'm absolutely convinced this will be our month because my ob is on leave all of January but we'll see. I have 2 more cycles on Clomid after this one and then I'm not sure what will happen - probably FSH injections I guess - so I'm really hoping it won't get to that for us.

    Congratulations Diane on your BFP

    MissBelinda - all the best with the adoption and/or foster care. What a wonderful thing to do

    pash - hope your HCG continues to go down I don't think I can even begin to imagine the ups and downs you are going through.

    kaib and LSB - all the best for the TWW!
