Yay for u/s Bella! I still get nervous every time a scan is approaching. Fx all will be great and you'll get a great look at your little girl :) hope you get an early night.

Waiting - fx :noaf: stay away from our group you :af: !! I will be stalking you. And Bella is right, a bfn @ 8 dpo does not mean your out. Bean only implants about 7-10 dpo - which is why your lp needs to be a good length. And until your bean is stuck it won't show on a hpt. GL girl!

Hoping- yay! For belly pic! My 14 w pics were after food too, lol and it seems I started showing before most, especially ftm's - my sister is about as far along as you and her belly looks more like yours then like mine. hope your feeling well :)

UGA - we are all anxiously awaiting your results. I think we almost want to see them more then you do seeing as your relaxing about it lol. I have my fx this is your bfp and sticky little bean! Can't believe you haven't poas! Lol. Talk about will power! Your chart is great. :) stalking!

Cara - yay! Check out that positive opk! Hope your spending lots of time In Bed with dh, not on here. Lol catch that super egg! Everyone beat me too it regarding your leaking question, what they've all said is right. What comes back out after is not important for babymakers so don't sweat it. Fx for a great strong o and equally great strong swimmers! Fx fx fx let the o be good and the tww begin!

AFM - had a few real baby brained moments at work today, needless to say my very kind understanding supervisor didn't appreciate it at all. :roll: sigh, stick it where the sun don't shine princess! Anyway, DP quit his job today too :roll: personally I think he over reacted. But there's not much I can do now. Just have to cross my fingers that he gets a new one fast and that my loan comes through. I don't want him to be unhappy at work, but sometimes you've just gotta suck it up sunshine. I'm going to keep it short tonight, I'm tired and looking forward to getting this day over and done with. Going to finish my dinner, feed the pets and the snuggle into bed, maybe listen to Charley for a few mins on the Doppler, haven't done that in a little while. Midwife found her on Friday but I haven't played with mine in a few weeks.
Anywa night all. I.l check back in the morning. For some stalking

Missing: Don't worry about your stupid supervisor.........sorry about DH quitting his job - hope another comes up soon!!!!! I remembered your 14-15 week pic as soon as I saw it and here I was thinking maybe I had too much bump already lol guess not - its hard to know what's small and big everyone is so different. Your belly is so sweet though!!!!!

Bella: Yah for scan!!! I have fingers crossed all is ok - please update when you can!!!! (thanks my DH likes the little belly :) )

Waiting: Sorry for the BFN......but if no AF that's good!!!! I have been busy just trying to keep up since during the week I am pretty lazy lol but I work and make dinner and pick up my little 10 month old nephew 1-2 days per week after work and have my DS to keep in line (lol) so I don't have energy for much lately!!!! I have a little miniature pincher he is a big tough 4 pound dog lol!!!!! Please remember 8DPO is early - no AF is a good sign!!! I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!!!

AFM: Just wanted to stop in and say hi before work - nothing exciting today just back to work for the week - short week again as I have to take DS to the hospital (again) this time only an hour away on Friday for his routine stuff........keeps my calendar full though - I just pray this baby does not get what he has I don't know how I would handle 2 - but at the same time I went through everything with DS so now I know what to do!!!

Have a good day ladies!!!!!!!!!!!

Missing-Love your new belly pictures!! Its so fun to look at your progress from your first picture to now!! Sorry to hear your man quit is job, praying he finds something more suitable for himself real fast!! And sorry your supervisor was a meany again, doesn't she understand the baby brain part of being pregnant?? Hope she wasn't to hard on you and you were able to shake it off!!

Bella-Praying for a nice scan today looking forward to hearing about it!! Sorry you had a restless night i hope you can catch up on your much needed zzz's very soon!!

Hoping-Thanks for your kind works, i'm pretty used to seeing negative test when i was pregnant i only peed on three test all together...they are still sitting on my dresser i like to look at them time to time to remind me that its possible. You have every right to be lazy :) How many nieces and nephew do you have?? I currently have 11 nieces and nephews and they keep me pretty busy as well! You have a little dog, mine way over 50lbs a piece and i have 3!! They are our babies the oldest one is 9 years old this year! What does your DS have if you don't mind me asking? Or maybe i missed you explaining it in a previous post.

Cara-Sounds like your BD'ing timing is perfect!! I'm praying that this is the month for you!! Now your two week wait will begin!

AFM-i'm currently 10 DPO or on Cycle day 29 which for me is longer than normal my hopes are kind of down and i have a feeling AF is on her way. Its so hard being a infertile, why can't i be one of lucky ones who don't even think about it and get a BFP. I will test on Wednesday Morning if AF hasn't arrived yet. Oh and i stopped at dollar general to pick up some pg test and i said i wanted 10 the guy looked at me funny opened the cabinet and there were only two left....damn guess i can't be a pee aholic with only two test!

W8ting - Please do not be down! I have not had a chance to stalk your chart, but it isn't over until :af: sings...she hasn't sung yet right? I know how you feel about being infertile. I know that I found hope in knowing I would have assistance in the journey. That helped me a little when facing bfns. Keep your chin up! :hugs:

Cara - Yay for O! :jump: I cannot wait to see what happens at the end of this cycle. You seemed to have timed it right!!! I have everything crossed for you and hope you get your bfp!!! :babydustg: :babydustb: :luck: :luck:

Missing - Love the belly pics!!! I am so happy for you! I hope you are feeling more rested. Sorry to hear about your supervisor being a pain again. She just needs a major attitude adjustment! Let me at her!!! Sorry to hear your DP just quit his job. I am sending lots of :luck: and prayers your way for a quick new job discovery and loan approval!

Bella - I cannot wait for your u/s results today!!! I hope you get great news and your nerves settle down. :D I know how excited you must be!!!

Hoping - Sorry you are so beat! I know how nice it can be to be with family, but how exhausting it can be too. I hope you have some time to get some much needed rest!!! :D

Mashinka - How are you doing? How is your head feeling?

Othello - I hope you are doing well and getting some rest too!

AFM - I told you all I would keep you posted...well, I got bloodwork results today...apparently, on a beta, a pregnancy test is considered positive if it is over 25 and mind was 79! So here we are...due 1 Dec, but will be earlier because I have to have a c/s. I will have bloodwork done weekly at the RE. I do not know how long they will do that and if they will do any u/s. I am going to have to wait to get those answers answered when I get home. Today has been a bit rough...felt crummy this morning and have been tired all day...I contribute it to the lack of good sleep I have been getting, but who knows?!? I hope all of you are doing well!!! I also wanted to say how blessed I am to have such a great group of women to chat with, be supported by, and give support to! You all are so great!!!
Warmest Regards :luck:

Yay Amanda!!! :congrats: :jump: :jump:

Just quick update. Everything went well with the scan, saw the heartbeat :jump: I'm measuring 6w4d which gives me a EDD of 16th Nov which is pretty accurate based on my O date :D My uterus is retroflexed at the moment which made it a bit hard for them but it should turn in a few weeks. They found a small perigestational haemorrhage which would explain the spotting I had. So all in all the scan went well! Will come back later for personals :D

Yay UGA omg congrats!! So happy for you!!,
and yay Bella! Knew you'd have a good scan!
We are a good news group today! :D

UGA - DP is desperate to give my supervisor that much needed attitude adjustment too, sadly it would come back to haunt me :( , we just have to leave it to karma and the universe

Bella - so glad ur scan went well! My uterus was being difficult in the beginning too. It must be good to know everything's on track in there and finally have an explanation for your spotting

Waiting - my supervisor doesn't understand what pregnancy is at all!! I mean seriously she thinks I'm acting 'like ive got a disease' and that I'm just forgetful, stupid and lazy! When i had m/s and arrived5 mins late due to it i was getting into trouble. Thing is I know for a fact if it were her who was pregnant the world would have to drop everything to accommodate her. She's so self absorbed. Anyway hope there's good news for you this cycle, if it's not to be though then at least you can raise your concerns about a short lp with your docs and hopefully that will do the trick! Still have fx for you this cycle of course!! Fx fx fx Oh lol about your Attempt to stock up on hpt's lol glad you got a couple at least. Fx that's all you need.

Cara - yay for temp drop and positive opk's. Hope your off bd'ing like mad while your not on here. :wink: glad to hear dh is so keen and supportive! I had well and truely worn myself and DP out by the time I o'd on my bfp cycle. We had a crazy 6d marathon. But it worked! Lol. I will be stalking you for the next two weeks very closely :)

Hoping - I can't remember if you told us what your DS has? You don't have to tell of course but we are a curious bunch and I think all very close now.
Hope things go well at his appts anyway. And hope your new LO is happy and healthy. Thanks so much for your compliments on my belly, yours is cute! Mine still doesn't show under my work shirt, can't wait til it does. Even tho charley is starting to hurt my back, I still get excited at the thought of getting bigger :) - I've put on about 10kg already!

AFM - slept all night last night, woke up in a panic because of it. I worry about everything. She wasnt kicking this morning either which of course freaked me out all the more. She's been pretty quiet all day. Going to check on her with my Doppler shortly. I think I'm just super worried at the moment because Orionslight a lady from the preg boards I was chatting too, lost her bub a few nights ago at14-15 weeks, the hb just stopped :omg: it's horrible, I thought past 12-14 weeks it was almost unheard of, and I know I'm over 20w now but it just hit really close to home to hear her story. I know I shouldn't worry but I do. DP keeps telling me I'm silly and that charley is fine, and I'm sure he's right. I'm so glad I've got him here to keep me sane. Work was ok today, I got into trouble for leaving the building ON MY LUNCH BREAK though! Gah! Stupid idiot supervisor. She took half the day off, leaving the other nurse without a lunch break and no chance to have one, oh what brilliant management skills she has. We had an emergency this afternoon, an old dog who got into a pack of snail bait :? :shock: the sily dog ate the whole box! 2 hrs of surgery later we did all we could, the rest is upto the dog. Fx she's ok in the morning. I got home super late since we had the emergency and no staff, cooking roast turkey now :roll: don't want too but it's been thawed so ive gotta do it. I've eaten already though so once it's cooked it's lights out for me.
Gota go check the bird now. Talk to you all tomorrow!

Amanda: :bfp: :bfp: :jump: :jump: :congrats: how exciting!!!!!!!!!! Get lots of rest!!! Your body was trying to tell you something!!!!!!!!!!

Waiting: Sorry your body is playing games with you - but on a good note :af: hasn't showed so your still in!!!! I hope you get an answer one way or another soon.....LOL about the dollar store by the way!!!! Guys don't get it!!

Cara: These 2 weeks will be exciting!! I have fingers crossed for you!!!!

Bella: :jump: :jump: for good scan!!!! I am so happy all is ok I know it can be stressful. So happy everything looks good!!!!! How are you feeling now??

Missing Missing: I know you get worried about the LO but let me tell you when I was pg with DS I did not gain that much weight and did not get too big and the dr.s were worried because of that and because he didn't move around too much - well he was so cramped lol he couldn't!!!!! And if you are worried eat some chocolate or drink juice and the sugar will usually wake that LO up in no time and she will be kicking - of course the doppler is great too but just a thought!!! Try not to worry - I know it's hard though!!! Still crappy your work acts like that - my guys are always asking how I am feeling and if I am hungry lol!!!! My actual boss has never had kids but hes so sweet and his dad has 2 sons but no grandkids and seems pretty excited (we are pretty close)

To answer waiting & missing's question: I will explain this the best I can I don't mind sharing so if something doesn't make sense please ask!!!! My DS has a few problems but the one that causes all these appts is an immune system disorder - he was basically born with out one. So he has to get a "replacement" every few weeks because it doesn't last - this actually keeps him pretty healthy because the donors have to be adults - so say I donate the "stuff" he needs then they give it to him now for the next few weeks anything I have had or encountered my whole life he is protected against. So he doesn't get really sick anymore and probably has less sick days then most kids his age because his "replacement immune system" is so much better then the average kid but yet it doesn't last in his body. BUT if he does get sick it can go from a little sick to hospitalization in less than a day so it is scary when he's not feeling well. Thankfully he has not been hospitalized in several years thanks to his treatment but I have almost lost him a few times. But for me the scariest time is when there is a new virus or strain of virus - like "the bird flu" since NO one has had it he has no protection and can not get vaccines and aside from locking him in his room with no contact with anyone / anything we can only do our best to keep him safe since I could pick it up say at the store and bring it home and then he could pick it up so even though he didn't go out with me he could still get sick!!!! Just like anyone it would just hit him harder...........And one of the other big problems is this disorder is RARE so finding doctors is hard!!!! None of our local doctors where we live will see my son as a regular patient because they don't know what to do with him if something does happen - and his specialist is the doctor 3 hours away - he is only 1 of 3 in our state that see kids with what my DS has........so that tells how many kids have this.

Ok I hope that wasn't too long (ok I know it was!!!) sorry!!! But I hope it answered some questions.

Otherwise I just wanted to say hi and I woke up thinking of Amanda and Bella wondering how things went so I wanted to check in!!!!

My day is just starting so I hope everyone has a good day / night!!!!

Yay uga! We all knew it this time! Congrats so happy for you! I bet a hpt would be blazing!

Bella-congrats I knew everything was perfect with your baby :) glad we got an answer for the spotting! Now we will have two November babies and hopefully 3 December babies. Wouldn't that be great!

Missing-what a dumb supervisor you have there. Did you tell her to kiss your butt, you needed a dag gum break! Lol we all would live to knock her out. Glad charley is kicking again. She's just getting her sleep pattern all messed up for you, lol sleeps during the day and up all night.

W8ting I'm not liking that temp drop. Can't wait to see today's temp though, hopefully it shot back up!

Afm-temp up today, 1 dpo but didn't bd this morning or last night :( last night I was just too tired and this morning dh was too tired. He said hell meet me for lunch to make up for it. I told him just one more day, today and we can break lol.

Bella-Yea Bella so happy to hear that you seen the heartbeat! What a huge relief :)

Missing-Oh my gosh your supervisor sounds more and more like a huge b**ch!! Excuse my language...but are you kidding me i can't believe how she treated you after your miscarriage. I didn't come in for two days and my boss was so understanding and he's a man!! I just might have to make a trip to Austrailia :) to kick some booty!! Thanks for having hope for me, but i'm pretty sure AF is on her freaking way...i was silly to even get my hopes up on doing it on my own :( I'm glad Charley is behaving herself and your feeling her kicks again!! I can't wait to feel that feeling i'm guessing its amazing!!

Hoping-Oh my gosh i'm so sorry you have to endure so much, it must be like stepping on pins and needles. I would be a germaphobe how you must worry so much :( Prayers for you. Is this something that he will have his whole life or do they think he will grow out of it? And for his tranfusions(not sure if that's the proper word) are you giving him blood of some sort?? It sucks that its such a rare form that not many doctors deal with it and you have to travel so far!! My niece Reilly had Type 1 Diabetes she was diagnosed when she was 6 years old and she is now 9, its so hard seeing a child go through something they have no control over! I really think its built a lot of character in her and she is a tough little cookie as i bet your little boy is too!

Cara-my temps are still the same so i'm guess the evil witch is just around the corner! Blah.... I'm praying that you get your BFP this month, afterall this group is really lucky latey and its bound to rub off on us!! Hope you caught that sneaky Egg

UGA-Once again congrats i'm so happy for you!!

AFM-Temp is low for the second day so i'm guessing AF will be here soon, this just plain sucks!!! I'm looking forward to the fertility treatments since i now know that they do work! I'm just really dissapointed that my 2012 is no longer in my reach :( I guess a 2013 baby will have to do...so here's to being pregnant in 2012...come on lucky group rub off on me!!

UGA :jump: :bfp: :pregnant: Congratulations!!!! I am so happy for you! Wow you guys,, almost everyone here got their BFP's at least once! (except me, but its ok=)

Since I am not charting my temps, I am going strictly by my cm, and according to that I should be somewhere around 4dpo today. Who knows how accurate that actually is, but I like believing that is the truth. So still just trying to take it easy, but its hard because I cant help but get excited, but im really trying not to. I dont have any signifficant symptoms, everything is the same, I always have mild cramps, boobs are whatever, i can feel like they hurt, or the opposite. I can make whatever symptom I want and it suddenly becomes real. So I am not tracking symptoms, well at least trying not to. I think my brain can make anything happen except a BFP! its okay though, just patiently waiting=)
