Danaa: That sounds terribly hot!! How do you manage??

Whoz: Relax. You don't need to be sorry. And you certainly do not have to be so hard on yourself! If diets could solve all the problems, we won't need doctors around. You are doing all you can hun. Its been a time taking procedure for all of us. But it got us some great friends. Hugs! You will get your BFP, sooner or later. But at this point of time, you owe it to yourself to feel proud of all the efforts you have put in. And how far you have come along. You need to do what makes you feel good. For me, immersing myself in good food works awesome. Never in my dreams can i ever think of following a diet. Believe me, in my past, that caused me sadness, cuz maximum i would stick was 1 day! And then i decided, f**k it! My body, i love food. And certainly no one likes me hangry:-) so be it..

Faith: I am sorry about the BFN. Hugs! I love your optimistic attitude. I am hoping you can get your raise soon to help you with hsg.

EOE, hello

Danaa: I OMG...I just stepped back into the house from picking up my daughter and the heat about killed me. What in the world??? I feel your pain. I couldn't even breathe. There was no relief. Your furry baby needs walking though so you are so sweet for taking him out even for a little bit.

Momma: Hey there you! :) Hope you all keep doing better. I'm sure he appreciates all of your help. I know mine did when he had his ankle surgery. That's when they realize how much we do for our men. :wink:

Nickysy: Thank you. I'm rolling around everything I want to do and need to do. I don't want to get too excited as I know it has taken me this long and will probably take me a bit longer. August is fast approaching.... :D Or will you already have done the next part to your IVF?

EOE HI!!! :D

AFM: Question. Any of you every have cramps that feel like you are going into labor? Pain radiating into lower buttocks even? I had a bought of it yesterday and today. I also get pain up where my right ovary is and the top of my uterus. I'm a bit concerned but can't get in to my OB until Aug. 17 for an annual. :shock: I may have to scream NOW next week if AF hasn't started.

Whoz, thank you so much for the offer of a baby gym. I love your designs, they are beautiful and fit right in with the style I love!! But the shipping to Australia would be SO expensive. I tried to buy a body pillow from amazon the other day - $60, whereas over here it's about $140. But the shipping was another $150! It's out of control expensive to get anything shipped here from overseas haha. Being this isolated from the rest of the world ha it's benefits, but international shipping is not one of them!!
I will have regular appointments with my obgyn from here on out. When you do public care here you only have certain appointments, but they are a lot more frequent with private obgyn which is part of the reason I'm doing that. More peace of mind that way.
I think adding estrogen testing is totally worth the extra cash if you can spare it! I hadn't realised how inaccurate my opk testing was til the specialist explained to me how pointless an LH test is for me. I hope it helps you pinpoint the timing!! Definitely don't feel like you're not doing everything we can. We all do so much and it's easy to say if only I could do this or that better - but this isn't something that can be fixed by one thing or another. It comes down to luck and medical intervention! And it sounds like you have a plan for medical intervention, and I'm sending good luck your way!!
Star, I laughed so hard at your vitamin count. Omg the number of tablets I was taking every day. I'm still taking a fair few but I've cut it back to the strictly necessary ones now (with dr's ok!). What's your routine involve?
Faith, I am a huge fan of the acupuncture. I don't know if it helped with fertility or not but if nothing else it was helping with my back pain when I used it for that so it definitely works on one level! Congrats on the raise, after such a shitty day that must have felt great.
Andi, the whole30 sounds great but I am terrible at diets. I tried to minimise sugar & carb intake wherever as possible for the 6 months before ivf, but if I went to dinner at someone's house I would let myself indulge. Now I am all about carbs & dairy, all the time because it's what baby wants ha. Now that I'm closer to second trimester I'm hoping to get back into better food habits, but the nausea cropped up again the other day. Funny you should suggest a good book - I just polished off 2 this week while trying to distract myself lol!! Have to find something else.
Nicky, can you have a staycation so you can at least have a rest after the ivf without spending money? You deserve a rest! Or maybe give yourself a pamper day at home on the weekend - face mask, hot bath (before you can't have any more of those) etc! Although maybe a hot bath won't be nice right now, what's the weather like where you are?
Dana oh no! I know it's not good for you because it's high sugar, but one of my favourite things to do in the middle of summer over here, especially when we lived in our top floor unit with no air con on a 40+ degree day (104+ for the Americans!) was to freeze a big cup of fruit juice and then just slowly chip away eating it with a spoon. Eating something that cold would keep you cold, and because it's a big cup of juice instead of an ice block (popsicle?) that melts more easily, it would take a good 45 mins to get through and keep you cool for longer! Also we'd sit in our underwear with ice packs strategically place and a fan directly on us LOL. Hope you find a way to survive the heat.
I personally LOVE it. I am a typical Aussie in that sense, I can't stand winter. It's not that cold here ever (we're literally about to have our coldest day tomorrow with a low of 0 (32 Fahrenheit)). But I will complain all day about that because it's too damn cold for me haha. Give me a hot sunny day by the pool any day. Don't now if I'll still be saying that at 8.5 months pregnant in the middle of summer though!!!!
Courtney, hoping luke is doing well and the pain stays gone for good this time.
Afm, our bank is now due to settle our land on Tuesday, but there's also been an issue with our house plans meaning we have to essentially swap it from right to left to comply with council. Such a shame because our terrazza will be in the shade non-stop now, but it's not the worst news! Other than that, waitingggg for my test results. I'll post the announcement I'll be sharing next week in a min, just have to crop it first.
Baby dust & love to eoe!

Faith: The pain sounds awful. Can you get it checked by a general practitioner at least?? I know, things can take time. Hell, we are all used to it by now. But i love the hope we keep! AFM, i am waiting for AF to begin so that i can connect back to clinic and know what exactly are the next steps.

Loz:I love love love that adorable onesie! Laughed so hard looking at it. Can i borrow your idea when time comes?? Its decently hot where i stay in India as well. Though monsoons are picking up, and rain has brought some relief as far as simmering temps are concerned. I am considering taking rest for 3 days after transfer, (whenever it h as happens), but thereafter planning to take a small trip to meet some of my friends. Hopefully, taking flights should not be an issue. Though i am having mixed feelings about it.

Courtney: Glad Luke is getting all the attention he deserves right now. Take your time. And don't forget to take rest yourself.


Ladies, i am also excited about GoT new season starting. How many of you are following it??

Nickysy: Next steps...gave me chills. Seems like it took forever to get here but now AF needs to hurry up :oops: Praying everything goes wonderful with the next steps. I don't keep track of much. And that that I am takes me a while to get back to on Netflix/Amazon...lol

Oh and thank you for responding to this weird pain I am having. I am going to see if my appt can get moved up. Its not just an annual I need due to the pains.

Faith I had those type of af cramps or similar once or twice when I was ovulating,I honestly don't know why bcs it was very different from my normal ovaries pains I get when I ovulate.I hope you feel better soon.
Loz ty for the idea.
I live on the second floor in a building with only two floors so it gets pretty hot but we do have ac thank Goodness bcs I don't know how we would have survived if we didn't.
My first summer in Greece I remember waking up and crying bcs we didn't had the ac yet:))
It gets over 40 degrees here plus the humidity is crazy.
Love your announcement!!!
Nicky I love GoT and I'm excited to watch it!!
Courtney thinking of you and ur husband.
Whoz,Andi hugs!!!
Today is my marriage anniversary,7 years together and I love my husband more and more every day.
We had some alcohol together and when he started to tell me how much he loves me and how he doesn't care if we will have children or not it killed me,I tried to keep it together but I couldn't I started crying....not the best anniversary,he is a wonderful husband and a generous human being,Im lucky to have met him..
I think I ovulated and that is good,I'm going to visit my family in two weeks for a few days and then get ready for my appointment.

Hello lovely ladies. Faith so sorry about your pain. Courtney I hope the surgery will help Luke's pain permanently. Danaa it gets pretty hot here, but dang, I'm not sure I could deal well with your type of heat. Happy anniversary! Nickysy come on af we are waiting on our baby for Nickysy impatiently, I might add, lol. Got my fx for everything to go smoothly for you. Loz what a wonderful onesy for your child. Andia glad you had a good vacation. So sweet of your sister to give you a baby gift. Whoz you are doing everything you can and I have faith you will be pregnant soon. Fly, Baby, Banana, Jade and Wish I am thinking of you ladies. Hope that is everyone. Afm I'm really liking my job. The only thing I don't like about it is that sometimes I don't get to see my dh for 12 hers or more bc our schedules makes it that way. Luckily it seems to only be 1 day a week. Watching my mil dogs bc she went on a trip and just waiting for my fertile time. That's all except baby dust, sticky vibes, and hugs to us all!

Faith: Thanks a bunch. How are you feeling? Any luck with your appointment?? Quite honestly i am being a bundle of nerves myself. The entire process is overdaunting these days. And its becoming a struggle to just let it be.

Danaa: Happy Anniversary! You surely are blessed. We completed 7 years of our marriage this Apr too. Good to hear about ovulation. Can't wait for you to get back to your doc. Yay for a partner in crime for watching GoT.

Angela: Thank you so much. Your wishes made me cry. You said, our baby. Thank you. Glad you are enjoying your job. Me and DH regularly do not see each other for 12-15hrs, because of his schedule. A lot of times, more than that. Fxed for catching the egg this time.

EOE, hello..

GoT in 15h for me!!Im excited!!!
Faith what kind of stitch did you have or will you have when you get pregnant!!
I started researching today and im amazed on how many women swear by the abdominal one,Im scared that if I get a regular one it won't hold but the abdominal one is invasive and expensive as f**k,of course I would get it if i have to but im not sure,my doc seems to prefer the classic one but i don't trust him anymore so I don't know....
Also I saw tons of posts saying that doctors don't like using a cervical stitch so maybe that is why my doctor didn't offer one when I got pregnant but also he said my cervix was always over 30mm + so maybe he didn't do anything wrong...I don't know...I'm just scared really scared.

hey ladies! I have a few minutes Luke is sleeping! it's been a rough couple days. surgical pain seems to have increased and he's running a low grade temp which is normal response after surgery but it makes him more sore. I tried to go to church lastnight and took the kids. e made it through worship and then Bel got her foot stuck under the door, she had taken her shoes off and it ripped her big toenail almost completely off. it was so gross! thankfully my friend is a nurse and she helped me take care of it and in the meantime Luke had called me several times to tell me his fever had gone up so I ended up leaving. it wasn't a wasted trip! I'm so far behind on posts and personals. I hope from here on out i can get caught up.

Danaa I hear you about the stitch thing. I would want one especially with the complications you had last time. if your Dr won't do it find one that will! don't take any chances next time if Dr isn't willing to do it. I was worried about my cervix as well BC it was thinned to 2 cm and they want it 3. I didn't have a previous measurement so I don't know if it is just how my body is after having several kids or what but i get it checked again on the 27. I did google it and yes freaked myself out!

Loz I haven't heard of GoT. you guys have got me wondering. going to have to check it out! glad you are doing good! can't wait to hear the gender of your little one! your announcement is adorable!

faith I hope you get that "pain" straightened out and find out what it is. no fun to hurt! good luck on getting your appt moved up.

Nicky I hope af comes soon! I know it's going to seem like these next few weeks will seem like an eternity.

my I'm so glad we are hearing from you more often. that's great you ate enjoying your job. fxd for your fertile time soon!

Whoz I know you mentioned your iui in previous page bit i can't look back at the moment to see what it was. can you update me please? oh and I've never heard of the receptivaDX. did I get that right?

andi how many weeks are you now? I'm rarely on my phone so i don't get to see your ticker.

star do you have an appt scheduled yet? i hated taking all of the vitamins as well! I'm down to just prenatal, folic acid, stool softener and sleep meds but it still seems like a lot.

well other than Luke's surgery stuff not a whole lot going on. I'm 26 weeks and a few days. I'll have to post a recent pic. It doesn't seem like I'm growing a lot at the moment but I've put on 20lbs so far. I've graduated from a small to a medium shirt and my jeans are getting uncomfortably tight. my friend gave birth sat night too a 8 lb 12oz baby girl without any meds! it was her fourth baby. more power to her I couldn't do it! we slept in the living room lastnight. the couch is more comfortable for Luke. I slept on other couch to be close to him if he needed anything. I know he's regretting this right now but it's the hardest time after back surgery. a couple weeks and he will be through the worst part!
