Hi eoe
Angela, I loved Thor! So funny. Plus they threw in a few Aussie jokes ;) I'm considering seeing it at the movies a second time I enjoyed it so much haha. I'm sorry you went through something as horrible as an eating disord r, but it's amazing that it's taught you such great coping techniques for the rest of your life and I'm so grateful we all get to benefit from your positivity!
Angela & Nicky, Wolverine is part of the reason we like Logan haha. I've always loved the name (I read a lot, and when I was little babysitters club was one of my favourites which is where I first came across the name!) but when I suggested it to DH I won him over by pointing out it was wolverine's name lol.
Courtney, Ben is so cute! You must be so in love. Does it feel strange to be planning something to prevent you from falling pregnant after so many years of TTC? I'm glad the meds worked well enough to get you feeling better now!
Dana, you'll have to keep us posted on your scan - good luck!!! don't stress about your weight right now, you're growing a human and that's the most important thing to focus on!
Wish, it's good to hear from you and I hope the IUI brings you a BFP!
Nicky, that cupcake basket is incredible, you're so talented. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better and are taking some time off.
Andi, how do the braxton hicks feel? I don't think I've had any yet. I occasionally get some sharp cramps on and off but my friend described them as like a band wrapping around your belly which is a bit different to what I've had? Good luck with the freezer meals, and with labour! Do you have a birth plan?
Afm, someone ASked how far along I am now (sorry, I can't remember who asked and my phone keeps freezing so I can't check). I am 29 weeks tomorrow! Time is really flying at the moment. Work is hectic as well which is good, it's keeping me distracted. We moved bedrooms on the weekend so we have the cot and change table set up and I've folded (but not washed yet) all of the babyname clothes we have already been given. DH and I have only bought a onesie and a tshirt and et we have the first 6 months worth of outfits taken care of!
That's all from me except baby dust & sticky vibes to all xxx

Lox good to hear from you. Wow 29 weeks already. Sounds like you are getting prepared. Work is a good distraction to keep time going by faster.

I had to stop the lexapro. It made me feel 100 times worse. I have every single side effect from it. It exaggerated depression like I can not even explain. Made me feel like a zombie. Once I stopped it I felt better. I already started my period. I'm have been a bit overwhelmed trying to juggle five kids and my dad. We just moved him to a different rehabilitation hospital. He's contacted cdiff which is very contagious. He's in isolation. I can go see him but can't take kids and have to follow hospital protocol. I'm going to let him get several days of treatment before I go back. I don't want to risk bringing it home to my kids. I'm really feeling fine with the tubal. I'm on birth control now. I will probably have the surgery around Christmas. I feel my family is complete. I'm just too old for more and my body is worn out and this last pregnancy really did me in. Mentally and physically. I'm ready to move to the next chapter of our life watching our kids grow up and then looking forward to grandkids. Omg I could be a GMA in 4/5 years if my oldest follows in my foot steps. I hope not. I hope he gets a good education then goes for a family! A lady asked Abby the other day if Ben was hers . She was carrying him. I'm like she's only 12!!

Hi. Quick question ladies. After this last fiasco with chemical, my periods including spotting got over on Tuesday(7th Nov). As of yesterday (12th Nov), my secretions looked brown. And today I had one or two drops of vaginal blood-red in colour. Is this normal? I am going for an u/s tomorrow morning. I have never had spotting between periods before, so its a little worrisome. Can't understand what is happening.

Nicky, let us know how the u/s goes! Can't really give you advice on that. I've never had spotting between cycles even after the miscarriages. FX it's just your body working it self out.

Loz - I think braxton hicks and contractions are different for everyone. Right now the BHs feel like a really strong period and a bad stomach ache combined. The tightening also happens but I don't know about feeling like a band. They are definitely pretty painful to me lately. Hopefully that means something!

Afm... just ticking away haha. Jk I feel pretty patient and waiting for him to make his appearance. I know he'll come out when he's ready and just packing on a few extra punds right now.

Nickysy: Beautiful basket!! You have some mad baking skills women. Goodness, wish you lived closer. I'd have had you do my wedding cupcakes. :D Hope you are physically/mentally healing up as best you can. Take time for youself. It is the best medicine.

MK: Thank you so much for sharing about what you have accomplished. Your positive nature is always good to have peak in when you can. HUGS. FX for a bfp this cycle. Stay strong.

Wish: Good to hear from you. Thank you for thinking of us and I pray you IUI goes well.

Loz/Andia: You ladies are towers compared to me. I could inch up that way in some serious stillettos but I don't want to break my butt. Sending you healthy vibes for stress free work and then then an easy labor for you Andiaa.

Courtney: Ben is so adorable. I hugged my laptop when I saw him. Little head..so precious.

Dana: That is so cute..heheh...you eat all you want. Take care to keep tummy warm and enjoy your pregnancy. :hugs:

Whoz: Thinking of you.

HI EOE.sorry if I missed a personal. I'm still in vacation mode...

AFM: Back from my Vegas trip. Still recovering from fertility acupuncture. I don't know what that doc did to my lady bits but this cycle will be proof of if I should go back again..lol. I got some expensive Chinese Herbs too but not sure if I should take them about ovulation. I'm already Oing here at cd11, so my husband said he thinks I should wait till next cycle and drink them tea herbs while on my cycle leading up to O. Since its 14 days worth. Its the real deal too. Paper bags full of roots and leaves...and every thing else natural..lol. I'm suppose to boil it three times before I drink it all. Next cycle if we don't get pregnant this cycle as we didn't 'try' just had some nice 'time' together..lol..Ok, O pains are starting to kick my butt, going to lay down. HUGS

Today's the day. I have 3 giant follies on me left ovary and the darkest Opk I've ever had. The rest line is twice as dark as the control line and came up before the control line too. Everyone cross your fingers and say a prayer this IUI works.

Wish Praying for you!!!Get that egg.
Faith welcome back and I’m happy you had fun.
I hope the herbs and the fertility acupuncture works for you.
I have no experience with herbs or Chinese herbs so I cannot say anything but I think you should listen to ur husband and in case you won’t get a bfp this cycle start drinking those herbs (man I don’t think I could do it lol,give shots all day long but not drinking stuff,I’m weird like that.)
Afm i saw the doctor today and we saw our baby and heard the heartbeat and it was beautiful,sadly the other sac was empty and small so no twins for me this time.Im supposed to have my thyroid tested and have a vaginal swab done to check for bacteria’s and that is about it....
Things are progressing nicely and in December I will have the stitch done so that is good.

Hello lovely ladies. No personals tonight bc this connection sucks and is slow as molasses. Just wanted to say af got me, but glad it was a 28 day cycle. Glad that my cycle seems to have lengthened to one more conducive to better lp and more mature egg. But boy had it resulted in a stronger period too. Lots of goods signs that my uterus lining is thickening up enough, as well. I just feel a bfp coming for me soon. Hopeful for all of us. That's all except for hugs, baby dust and sticky vibes to us all.

Sorry the witch got you MK! :(
But it sounds like your body is regulating nicely to a regular cycle. I'm sorry the flow was heavy but a thick lining is sooo good! FX for this new cycle. HUGS
