    Firstly big big hugs to you Mel... :hugs:
    I am so sorry that your period arrived - I understand how it feels. I know you feel alone in your head but come in here when you feel like that and know that how you are feeling is very normal. Importantly know that you are not alone and we are all walking with you through this journey. Never stop believing that you will have an Earth Baby. You will. It WILL happen. JUst a practical question Mel do you know what cd you ovulated on? Usually the day after a positive opk... Just wondering what your luteal phase is with the shorter cycle this month. Two more weeks until you see the specialist... Would it be worthwhile ringing and pleading for an appointment asap? Perhaps even asking your gp to fax through a request for you to be seen urgently. All specialists have some appointments each day alloted for this. It would be so nice for you to be able to get a plan earlier. (if that's what you want of course).
    The pasties sound yum - I am glad there is something on this afternoon - cooking with others is a wonderful thing. I wish I could reach through the screen and give you a big big hug but of course I can't. Just know that I am here. Thinking of you a lot and sending you bucketloads of love...

    Lynn: That result is great Lynn and tomorrows is going to be even better. How are the injections going? You really don't need to put a bandaid over the site - just press it gently for a minute to prevent a blood spot and it should be okay. Also, the year of the golden pig doesn't end until Feb 2008 so you still have plenty of time for a Golden Pig Baby okay!!! Thinking of you tomorrow with your blood test and today for Coopers birthday... :hugs:

    Bailey: I understand so much the Christmas thing also - it is true it does add stress and pressure but it's so very very real and understandable.



    Alex: I hope your weekend wasn't washed out and that the sun is shining on you and yours!

    Tommysmum: That must be torture not being able to use the new kitchen! I love the kitchen - which is lucky since I spend a great deal of my time in it! My Mum and Dad are coming tomorrow so I need to get in there now and make some monte carlos - a bit of a family favourite. Wouldn't it be nice if one day in the not too distant future we could all get together with our new healthy babies and share some time? Anyway I won't tell you I have chicken soup in the slow cooker and bread in the bread maker!!!!! Sorry Tommysmum I just couldn't help it!!!!!!!

    I have to go and do some jobs. Have a great weekend...

    Hey Ladies

    Boy it has been quiet in here today but I guess that is because you all have exciting things to do on a weekend. poor me huh (lol)

    Mel: I hope you are feeling a bit better honey and that your afternoon cooking and eating has been relaxing. Take care babe.

    Deb: You will absolutely have to share your chicken soup receipe, it is getting to soup weather and I would love to make some chicken soup. Just a question, do you leave the slow cooker on during the day if you go out of the house. I know people say you can but I really worry about it being on with no one home. Oh and monte carlos, go Martha. Enjoy the time with your Mum and Dad tomorrow, I hope you have a wonderful day.

    Tommysmum and Lynn: I hope you had lovely days at the weddings and that the rain didn't dampen the day too much.

    Well I have had a bit of a worrying day. Lil' Spring has been very quiet but I have been reading through some other threads that say when you start to feel the baby move many people have quiet days. Just hope I get some good thumps before bed so that I can rest a little easier.

    Apart from that my day has centered around food. I am officially starving all the time. I made the yummiest Jam and coconut slice today and gorged on almost half of it. It was soo tasty. I slept in and didn't make the minestrone soup but there is always tomorrow.

    Anyway ladies, time to make some dinner and I think I will watch Spiderman. Really missing DH this weekend but I just spoke to him and there are only 41 sleeps to go so when he gets home will be the biggest Whoo Hoo ever.

    I'll pop in later to say hi.

    Big love to y'all

    Hi everyone,

    Mel - I am so sorry that AF turned up. I don't know what to say. It just sucks. I hope that you are feeling a little better. I am feeling the same way. I was so annoyed when my last one came on day 44. Even though I didn't deep down believe I was pregnant, the fact that AF was so so late gave me a little hope so when it came I was so disapointed. I just don't know why, but I am feeling worse than I did a couple of months ago.

    Lynn - Down with the golden pig...if I ever find that little porker I am gonna put him on the golden spit! I am not even bothering with a ticker now as I can't work out what is going on with my stupid body. I hope you get some good results tomorrow

    Tommysmum - I am feeling slightly better today. Maybe because I have accepted my 2007 dream is over. Well hopefully now that my self-imposed pressure cooker has been turned off, my body might start to behave it's stupid self and it can all just happen.

    Spring - I am sure Lil Spring is just full of jam and coconut. When they are that small, I think that in certain positions they still have so much room that you don't always feel them kicking around, so don't worry. Give him/her a sip of coke and lie down, that'll get 'em buzzing!

    Well, I don't have much to say. I feel like I am not very helpful at the moment anyway. I just hope you are all well and that everyone get's everything they want very soon.

    I am popping in too to see how your results are LYNN.
    I am sure they are beautiful becasue this is YOUR month!

    LOL Bailey at the Golden Spit!!!!!! We have still got time for a Golden Pig baby as I said. Keep positive. Keep believing. Practically Bailey have you thought of taking some b6 and chaste tree? It is known to be a hormone balancer and aids in regulating cycles. Just a thought... Maybe a trip to a naturopath could help? Have you got opk's for this cycle?

    Spring: I will email my recipe if you like - send me your email at my [email protected] addy. How is LIl Spring moving today? It is so scary when they have quiet times.

    Well everyone is gone and now I have to get dinner... I am so tired I don't know what I am going to cook - something quick no doubt!
    My Dad gave me the book "The Secret" as I had mentioned I wanted to read it (I have the dvd) so I am going to have an early night and get some positivity into me!
    I will pop backin a little later to check up on Lynn.

    Hey everyone,

    Thank you for your messages yesterday for Cooper's 5 month birthday. It means so much to me. I think I got through the day ok. I went to the hairdressers and got my winter coat done! I have gone brown. I like it, much easier to look after. Then I had a wedding. The rain stayed away for long enough for them to say their vows. It was very beautiful and of course the bride was stunning! I saw a few people that I hadn't seen since Cooper was born so that was hard but I thought I did well to get through most of the night until the end. I was saying goodbye to people and everyone was saying how great it was to see me out and that Cooper would be proud of me and blah blah blah and I lost it A number of people also asked if I was pregnant because I wasn't drinking - it was so hard to say no. I guess when the alcohol is flowing a bit of the sensitivity goes out the window!!

    I felt a bit sick yesterday and it has continued today. I'm not sure if it is the drugs that I am pumping into my body but I just don't feel right. It might also be that I am thinking of Coopie heaps and wondering what might of been.

    Mel - I hope you are feeling a little bit better today. You had me worried yesterday. I wanted to jump on a plane and come down and give you a big hug I hope you enjoyed your time at the inlaws. I know what you mean about feeling alone. I feel like that sometimes. I know I have you girls to talk to but it is a weird feeling, one that I can't shake. Take care babe, speak soon.

    Bailey - LMAO!!!! I'll help you spit the golden pig!!!! How was your relo bash today? I hope you enjoyed your time.

    Deb - that is great news that the golden pig year ends in Feb 08.................still in with a chance How is the 2ww going? Have you tested yet? The injections are going ok. I still can't do them myself. My DH is the best! He is my personal dr. I think he actually likes to do it! It was interesting yesterday trying to do it in the back of the car (injections that is) between the ceremony and reception! I hope nobody could see in with my dress up

    Spring - sorry I had to cancel our date today. I just wasn't feeling right. I hope you had a fun day anyway. How is lil Spring going? Kicking around down there? Thanks for popping in to see how I am.

    Well I got the results back from the bt not as good as we had expected. It has only gone up to 248 so I have to go back on Wednesday for another bt. I asked if my body is not responding to this either and they said that it is too early to tell and that after Wednesday's results they may increase the dose. I'm trying to stay positive but it's hard!

    Hope everyone had a great weekend.

    luv & hugs
    Lynn

    Lynn: YOur results have gone up and that's good. Sometimes they have to fiddle with the doseage a bit. Usually you begin on a lower dose - some women will respond to that really well and can get OHSS so that is why they are cautious to begin with. On WEdnesday if your levels haven't gone up I would think they will increase that doseage up and that is quite normal. The first cycle can be a bit of a fiddle to get it right. HOpefully though this is your first and last for a while... I do understand about you fear of not responding - remember I needed 150mgs (the max doseage) of clomid to get a good ovarian response. It can just be a fiddle to get it right. Thinkign of you...

    Thanks Deb. I think I needed to hear that. What is OHSS? I think it means to many follies. They did say that to me that my FS didn't want to increase the dose to early and then I over-stimulate and have too many follies and they would have to cancel the cycle. That would be awful!!!! Looking at my other levels prog is higher than last cycle - 3.2 and LH is 9 which is lower than the same time last cycle. Should I be comparing my levels to my last cycle given that I was on different meds?

    Don't compare the meds are different. OHSS + ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome. Nasty little thing that creates too many follies, pain and can be very serious. And absolutely the result is the cycle will be cancelled due to the risk of multiples. YOu LH will be lower because you are further away from ovulation than last cycle I would suggest. But as I said don't compare. This is a different cycle with different drugs that work differently. What we want to see is nice follicular formation and a healthy progesterone at the end!

    Thanks Deb. They haven't scheduled an u/s on Wednesday so I guess they want to see what my levels are first. Seeing as though I have long cycles I am thinking that it is still early days for me. Hopefully on Wednesday which will be CD15 my levels will be up

    Hi again everyone,

    Lynn - Sorry your results were not as good as you had hoped, but as Flowerchild said, there is a rise so that is good right? Hope they are even better on wednesday for you. Also, oops on the Golden piggy, I think I may have dissed the little porker too early, I forgot that the Chinese new year in in Feb, so I guess that this will be our month huh?

    Flowerchild - I am already feeling bad, as I said to Lynn for dissin' the Golden Pig!! I will have to lay off all pork products all week and maybe she'll forgive me. What is chaste tree?? I will look into the b6, but I won't be chaste Is it something that I can get at a health food shop? I ordered some opk's online a week ago, but I dodn't recieve them last week, so hopefully they will arrive this week. Thanks so much for the advice.

    My little monster has woken up, so I will come back soon and see whats happening.

    Lynn: Sorry I know nothing about the levels eg but it seems Dr. Deb is on the case. With OHSS, my friend who is going through IVF had it and not only did they cancel the cycle, but she was hospitalised so it is good that they are starting you on a low dosage. Although it may mean fiddling around a bit at least you know that your body can cope.

    I am also sorry about the insensitive comments you got at the wedding towards the end. I don't know what some people are thinking, but I am sure although it came out wrong, they were just trying to show that they cared, even if it was through beer goggles. I bet most of them feel silly about it today. No worries about cancelling our date, don't think I would have been very good company, Lil' Spring has been quiet of late but I have had a stern talking to myself and got over it (lol)

    Bailey: How was the BBQ this arvo? Are you feeling a little bit better? Hey and I am sure the little golden porker will forgive you, I hope more than anything that you get a Golden pig bubba (boy that sounds weird but YKWIM

    Deb: Thanks for the advice about the bath. I tried it and more than anything I managed to relax and regroup a bit. I think I felt another movement but I can't be sure. I think that since I have been feelig movement I was expecting it to escalate to kicks straight away, like the huge whacks I had with Harry towards the end, but I have to be a little more realistic with my expectations. I have felt some movements today so tomorrow is a new day. Thanks once again for your help and advice, you are a lifesaver.

    Mel: Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you honey. Take care.

    Well I have eaten like an absoute guts today and I'm still hungry. One of those days when nothing seems to even hit the sides. I feel nice and cosy after my shower so about to settle down for a night of TV and yep you guessed it, more food.

    I hope all you other sensational women are well, I'll be back later to say hi.

    Bailey - yes I must apologise to the piggy too! He only has a few more cycles to get us that bubba by the end of Feb Let's be nice to him and maybe he can help us out! Do we sound crazy or what??????????

    Spring - I'm sure lil spring is doing just fine. just having a rest. When is your next scan? I know that everyone was probably thinking they were doing the right thing in talking to me about Cooper, I just wished they had said it at the beginning of the night and as you said, not through beer goggles. Don't they always say that you say what you think after a few drinks??? At least people are thinking of my little man and me. I guess they are probably scared to say anything when they are sober cos they might not know if they are saying the right thing. But as I always say, if you say something and I cry it is better than saying nothing at all and making me cry. I think I am going through that time where I feel like people are forgetting Coopie and I don't want them to, so expect them to talk about him all the time. I don't know how I would be if I was in their shoes so I guess I have to think that they are doing their best.

    Dear Golden Pig,
    I am really sorry for dissin' you earlier, I didn't really mean it when I said I will hunt you down and put you on the spit. It's just that we thought you had left a few of us behind, but it was just that I forgot that your year is a little different than ours. So, would it be ok if you could please help a couple of us out over this next month so that we can have our beautiful little earth bubs born in your wonderful lucky year?? Again, I am sorry for the threats and insults.
    Thankyou

    how are everyone going? well I hope!
