    Good morning Everyone,
    Thinking of you today Mel I look forward to hearing how it went.

    Mish, welcome back. We haven't "met" so I look forward to getting to know you.
    I understand about the big looming 40. Try really hard to let go of that fear. (I am 40 in August so I HEAR you sister!) Many many women have beautiful healthy babies at this age. Much is reliant on your health. Ensure you take good doses of folate, b12 and b6. All known to effect DNA in a positive way.

    I will back later - have a lovely morning....

    Hi ladies

    Just a quick one from me tonight because DH is almost home

    Dream: Big :hugs: to you honey, I am so sorry that the test was negative. You deserve so much more. You sound like you are being very strong, but just remember, we are here for you if you just want to have a vent. I hope you had a nice relaxing dinner.

    Mish: It is nice to see you back babe, I hope you are feeling better. I know about how hard it is having DH away when you are TTC, my DH's work means that he is always away and it just gets so frustrating. I hope that all the heavens aline and that you O will DH is home.

    Mel: How was the ob today honey, I hope you got some answer. I'll check later if I can and see how it went.

    Lynn: I think that things like Chinese medicine should be given more credit. It has been around for many moons more than conventional medicine. I also think that their differnt lunar cycles are worth at least understanding. Anything that helps hey. I have a really close quite spiritual friend who told me that the number 7 is very significant. We got discussing the fact that Harrison was born 7 years to the day that DH and I went on our first date. I'd like to believe that the same applies for 2007.

    Bailey: I am so glad that you are feeling better. I just finished cooking the brownies for Sunday so I am going to let them cool and ice them. Yummo.

    Flowerchild: Your chooks sound very spoilt. We always had chooks as kids in Townsville. It was so exciting going into the pen in the morning and collecting the eggs with bits of poo and feathers stuck to them when they were still warm. I can remember my sisters and I would search through the straw, it was so much fun. I know your kids will love them and organic, free range eggs are just the best.

    Well thats it for me, I'm glad some of you noticed my signature, it says it all for me at the moment.

    Luv Spring

    Hey girls,

    Dream - I am so sorry.:hugs: I hope you are ok and you have a nice dinner.

    Lynn - How'd you go with the big "O"? I googled that Chinese Lunar chart, and if I get UTD this month, I will have a girl. Yay! Better get DH on the job then

    Mel - How'd you go at the OB today?

    Spring - Have fun with DH home

    Hello to Tess, Mish and Flowerchild, and everyone - hope I dodn't miss anyone. I hope you are all well.

    Hey everyone,

    Hope you are all having nice weekends

    Spring - I'm glad that DH has come home this weekend. It must be nice to have him home.

    Nat - Babe I am so sorry. I wished so hard that this was your month. I hope you had a nice dinner.

    Bailey - yeah if I get it this month, I will be having a girl too. Not that I care, I just want a baby. Sometimes I think that having a girl next might be easier because I won't compare it as much with Cooper iykwim

    Well no O for me yet Hope it is still just around the corner.

    See you tomorrow Spring and Bailey

    Hi everybody,

    Well everything went well at OB. He said he got some more results back since we spoke and my level of ACL antibodies is only 10 (apparently <5 is considered negative) so I only need to take a low dose of aspirin during next pg (no injectrions, YAY - DH is wrapped cause he was gonna have to give them). He confirmed that the hysterogram was normal and everything looks perfect. We spoke about not getting pregnant and he said dont worry too much cause its quite common to take 6 or more cycles ater having a bub, but he did give me some tests to have done all the same. He wants me to have bloods on CD22 this month to make sure I am ovulating. He said just cause OPKs show positive isnt 100% proof that you are ovulating, although it is a good indication it is best to check (he said rarely but sometimes you can have surge without O). He gave me a referral to an infertility specialist, Lyndon Hale, who is really booked up so I cant get an appointment until 15 May so he said book it now and cancel is pg before then. He gave DH a form to have his swimmers checked, he was mortified LOL. He said but ive fathered 4 kids and OB said its probably not him but we need to make sure. He is hoping we succeed this month so he doesnt have to do it, but hey after everything ive been through, doing ykw in a jar is nothing! He also gave me a form to have a Levovist done which is to check there are no blockages in the fallopian tubes, they are booked up until April so I booked it and will cancel if pg before. He agrees that while everything is probably fine it is best to make sure now rather than let it go another 6 months and find there is a problem that could have been fixed earlier. I left his office feeling so good, its so nice to have someone take me seriously and I love his attitude of why wait for problems lets make sure there are none now. He gives me so much confidence that my next bub will be ok that it makes me in a way a bit excited, but also just more desperate to conceive. I am so grateful I changed OB!!!!!!

    Also went to agency yesterday and got almost 100% on all of my tests and the girl said my data entry score was the quickest she has seen for a long time, she said average good result would be 5000 keystrokes for that test and I did 11500 (pats on the back for Mel LOL), so she said she thinks she can definitely keep me in full time work and because I have radiology audiotyping background I am in the highest grade of pay for a temp... WOOHOO! I finally feel like everything is going to start getting better, I just hope the feeling lasts.

    Spring - My post was meant to be "I am DYING here" and it was referring to your flowers. I hope you have a great weekend with DH, I assume you will be very "busy" LOL

    Lynn - I am sure you will O soon, I so hope it happens for you this weekend As I said to you in email, according to the lunar chart I will having a girl if I conceive before November (GOD I WOULD HOPE SO!!!!) which is cool, a girl would be nice as she could be a little friend for my niece who is totally surrounded by boys - plus I already have my special boy. Not that I care, as long as it screams at me on arrival I would be over the moon.

    Nat - I am so sorry about your negative, you sound like you are being really strong and I think that is very admirable. Hope you enjoyed your dinner and it took your mind off things :hugs:

    Bailey - I really hope you are right, I already feel so much more relaxed having handed in my resignation and also after seeing OB so fingers crossed this month is my lucky month.

    Mish - I dont know about temps cause I have never tried, but OPKs always confused the crap out of me at first but I eventually figured them out with the help of Deb. Hope your cycle works itself out for you.

    Hi to Clare, Tess, Jo, Deb and everybody else checking in.

    Have a good weekend.

    Mel

    P.S. Very envious of your catch up on Sunday, so wish I was a Sydney gal! I hope you all have a nice afternoon and promise to have cake or something for me

    Hi Everyone,
    Mel, that's great news on your obs visit. I am so happy that you left feeling heard and validated. YIPPPPEEEEEE! I hope your ttc journey ends before that May appointment - it does take time for your hormones an rythums to get back to their good old selves. I understand how frustrating it is. We all just wanna be pregnant again with healthy babies. It will happen
    Lynn: That ovulation is just around the corner - you must be getting frustrated. I so understand. Thinking of you...
    Nat: I hope you had a lovely night last night. Lots of hugs to you
    Everyone else I hope you are all having a great weekend.

    Mel: That is wonderful news about the ob. I am so glad that you feel like you have a plan of attack. I hope that you are UTD before you have the next series of test but at least you won't waste months worrying that something else is wrong. I think what the ob has suggested sounds like he understands how frustrated you are. Also it is great that you only need a low dose of asprin, self injecting wouldn't be fun but I know that you would do what ever it took to have a healthy bub. The flowers were from my friend Kirsty. The card said, 'just because, from a friend who loves you'. They are very beautiful and it was a nice thing to do, I felt very special.

    Lynn: Oh boy oh boy I hope that you get that magical O very soon. You deserve a break. I will send you all the O vibes I can and hope that that eggie behaves herself very soon.

    Dream: I know that you have lots on your plate at the moment but I just want you to know that you have been in my thoughts. Hang in there sweetie.

    Flowerchild, Clare, Mish, Bailey and anyone else I have missed, I hope that you are all ok.

    PS... I wish so bad that I could meet every single one of you tomorrow at the Sydney catch up.

    Luv Spring

    Hi again ladies,

    Lynn - Yeah, I don't really care what I have, as long as bub's is healthy. I would really like a little girl, but I wonder if that would be harder?? But like you said, maybe that would make me compare? I would like to think not. Now what is going on with your cheeky O? I am pretty sure I am meant to O tommorrow or Monday, but to be honest, I can't work it all out, so I am just going to have to BD everyday for the rest of the month. Poor DP!!

    Mel - Good to hear that your OB appointment went well. I bet you get that BFP really soon now that you have eliminated some of your worries and you have a new outlook. And hey, you can get cheapo flights these days, so maybe we can plan a nationwide get together in a few months.

    To everyone, enjoy your weekend, and I will see a couple of you tommorrow....if I can find you

    Thanks for checking on my ovaries Deb, I wish I could check up on them and ask them what the hell are you doing???????????????? Still nothing today, just a stupid single line on the OPK. A weird thing happened with my temp this morning. It is normally around the 36.31-36.39 but today it was 36.14 - does this mean anything? Probably not, I think I am just searching for any signs that it is on its way.

    Mel - I am so happy that everything went well with your ob. It must be nice to finally be getting somewhere and it must make you happy that you changed obs. I totally agree with finding out now if there is something wrong rather than wait 6 more months. If only someone gave me this advice years ago!!!! But I'm sure that you have nothing to worry about and everything is just fine. That is excellent about your test at the agency. We all knew you would go well on your typing speed!!! lol
    I am so glad that you finally feel like things are starting to get better. Hopefully by the end of this month they will be even better for you because you get your BFP.
    I am so with you on the "screams on arrival". I don't care if my bubba screams the house down!!! I think we are all like that, we don't care what sex it is as long as it is crying and pooing we will be happy.

    Nat - have been thinking about you today. Hope you are doing ok. I know you have a busy weekend so hopefully that is keeping your mind busy. Have fun tomorrow at the party. Forgot to tell you yesterday on the phone................I am going to acupuncture next week with my MIL. She goes for her asthma so I said I would go with her and give it a go. I'm trying everything now - I even have a huge rose quartz heart-shape stone next to my bed. I heard that this is supposed to help too.

    Bailey - I know what you mean about poor DP. My DH keeps saying when is the day. If only I knew!!!!

    Spring - hope you are enjoying your time with DH. I know it will be hard when he leaves tomorrow. That is so nice that your friend sent flowers and a card. I got a card from my friend this week with a beautiful poem. It just means so much to read the things that she wrote and I know that she hasn't forgotten about me or Cooper, sometimes I guess I just to hear that.

    I wish that we all lived in the same city and we all could be getting together tomorrow.

    Well I have had a busy couple of days with friends visiting and seeing Cooper's garden. It means so much to me that they want to see it and now that people know that I want to talk about him, they are starting to talk about him which is just so nice.

    My MIL said a beautiful thing to me today. She said that she feels like she knows Cooper more and more every day because she talks about him to her husband and to me and to anyone that will listen. She said that every day she misses him more and more. I thought that was so sweet. She also said that she looks at babies when she is out and sometimes wants to ask the mother how old the baby is because she wonders how big Cooper would be now. That made me so upset because it just made me realise that not only do I not get to watch my son grow, she doesn't get to watch her grandson grow. It made me realise that sometimes I don't really appreciate how my family is feeling. I forget that it is hard on them too - they lost their first grandchild.

    Default Happy Chinese New Year!!!!

    Happy Chinese New Year to all you beautiful women.

    The year of the pig heralds time of fertility and prosperity thus making it a fantastic time to make babies. But not only is it year of the pig, it is year of the golden pig and according to chinese foklore, this is an event that occurs once in every 600 years and will ensure that a baby born in this year will experience a prosperous and wealthy life.

    Good luck everyone and may 2007 be our year

    Lynn, I just read your posts and I wanted to give you a . You are truly a beautiful woman. Cooper is watching over you, this I truly believe. Your MIL sounds like a sweetheart.

    LYNN'S OVARIES - COME ON SPIT OUT THAT HEALTHY EGGY!!!!!!!

    What cd are you today? I think tomorrow is your obs appointment? I am sure he/she will do an u/s and have a look at what follicular activity there is. Be sure to let us know.

    Rose Quartz is said to enhance fertility but is most effective combined with Moonstone. (a friend in the 'know' told me this!) So, this woman has a rosequartz ring that Liberace would be proud to call his own AND a set of moonstone earings! Nah I am not at all superstitious!!!!!!!!!! I do believe that crystals have energy and I believe that ritual and belief is important.

    Leads me to..... Chinese New Year. Now tell me is it so that it is especially good for fertility???? My husband does lots of work with Asia and it is an UNLUCKY year to get married in but they say lucky for everything else. He didn't have too much to enlighten me on. I was just hoping that fertility was one of the strong points of the Pig year!!!! I am a GOAT and it's supposed to be a SPLENDID year for me!!!! I am viualising a Golden Pig year Baby for us all!

    to everyone. And Happy Golden Pig New YeAR!

    Just a quick one, of to bed absolutely exhausted!
    Lynn - I found my temp always drops to around 36.1 / 35.9 just prior to 'o' sometimes it can happen 2 or 3 days before o day, but keep going with the OPK's I am sure you will see that 2nd line soon. Are you using FF or just recording at home? If you use FF can you post a link to your chart, so we can have a peek?

    Morning ladies - hope you are all well.

    It is so hard to keep up with you all - so sorry I do not do personals very often.

    Just wanted to let you all know that I had my 6wk post-natal checkup today. The doctor said my body has returned to its pre-pregnant state which is good, but as I have been feeling sick recently and have a tender stomach she has sent me for blood tests and an ultrasound tomorrow morning. I am hoping that it is all okay - feels pretty scary I thought all this was over and I could get back to TTC.

    Anyway hope you are all having a good day.
    Take care, T.
