thank you everyone, I'm still kind of freaking out but in a good way.
really hope we have a few more pos soon,who I can move to the grads group with, have really enjoyed everyones company.

Miraclebaby, how are the cows now, hope DS isn't scared of them I hope. It's nice to see when your dogs are protective makes you fell a bit safer

Rach, your doing a great job with the 2ww not long now fx

ruth79, fx for you too, only a couple of days hang in there. I'm tall too so completely understand the excitement of jeans that are long enough. I'm also fat but only in the tummy area not the legs so have trouble with that too. wow your norwegian homework sounds hard good luck let us know how it goes

IVFbaby, you said you need to wait to next monday, do you go in to get tested?

Mackaymum, my guess is you have't O'd yet maybe it wasn't proper ewcm, and it's better to vent on here then go off at someone irl

Tweedle dee, how are you going?

have decided to do a test tomorrow morning then maybe ring the doc not real sure when to go in and is hard to get into my normal doc so maybe I should ring and see when his next available one is oh i'm not sure. I'm so scared something is going to go wrong, but keep trying to push that to the back of my mind.


eta, Rach the link to the grad group didn't work

You know now Rach I am going to have to bust open my 3 pack tomorrow morning.  Let's see if we can make it three in a row

Posted 29 October 2012 - 03:34 PM

Afternoon Ladies,

WOW two BFP's in a row and Rach it must be the list  biggrin.gif

Every time I see people getting BFP's I get all teary. I am sure it is happiness for you guys as I know how hard you all have worked to get there.

Rach: CONGRATULATIONS on your BFP and great culling of the list and I think we now have more graduates than members. Not that it is a bad thing.

Romeolima: CONGRATULATIONS on your BFP too.. No matter how light the line is you are still pregnant.

Ruth: Good luck with your Norwegian homework and maybe you will be joining the girls in the grads group too fx.

Tweedle-dee: Looks like you've got company over in the grads original.gif

Mackaymum; I don't know anything about temping so I can't help you but isn't a rise in temp a good sign to a BFP also?

AFM: Well DS has gone back to his horrible sleeping ways. Unfortunately it is now worse than before we moved, although I have a feeling he is getting his molars. He has done nothing but poo the last few days and is very clingy and whingy. I keep telling him not to poo so much now as we are too far out of town to have a regular garbage service so we have to take our rubbish to the tip. He hasn't worried about his little event with the cows. I am now more scared of them and won't let him near the fence.

Have been off my food the last few days. I don't feel sick but I'm just not hungry and when I do eat so I can take my insulin I end up feeling nauseous. Luck for me I don't have a 3 pack like all of you guys in the house  tongue.gif

Posted 29 October 2012 - 06:17 PM

RACH - you inspired me to break open the three pack

AND

BFP!
OMG.....OMG.....OMG

8 days post frozen transfer and it's definantly there.  I have no idea how to load up an image, sorry.

Explains why I have been feeling like absolute rubbish on and off.  Can't believe it.  Last time I waited till day 10 post transfer and got BFP.  Trying not to get too excited but geez........

Will wait a couple of days and test in morning again...
That's three in a row ladies!

Romeolima - I updated the link to be the DIG (due in group) page. You can spy on the Due in July 2013 one. LOL

miracle baby - Boo that your DS ins't sleeping well anymore. Glad to hear that the cows didn't upset him though.
I agree, next time you go into town, pick up a 3pk.  wink.gif

Hope everyone else is going well.

I might stick around for a little while if that's ok with you guys. I want to get everything confirmed via bloods first.

#15 tweedle-dee

Posted 29 October 2012 - 07:53 PM

OMG...so much action!! Congrats to romeolima, rach and ivf baby. And sending bucket loads of baby dust to all you other lovely ladies....its such a bitter sweet feeling to announce and read about other BFPs here in this group and knowing that that our natural thought is "i hope I might be next" but also understanding the excitement of others news when it does arrive....sorry I think I'm rambling?!!

Thanks for all your thoughts and encouragement...I'm not quite sure if i still belong here or if I should move to dig group...my 2 lots of bloods are confirming BFP (6 weeks tmrw) but I'm still not convinced and am eagerly awaiting scan on Fri. Gp is cautious of results so far and hasn't even discussed due date or antenatal care options.. I'm really feeling in limbo and sad to say I can't even get excited...yet. it doesn't help that we haven't told ANYONE cause were just not sure where were at, and without telling anyone IRL it still doesn't feel real. So I hope its ok that I just lay low in the background until we get results of scan...

Congrats again to the recent BFPs...hopefully some more are not too far away xx

Posted 29 October 2012 - 07:53 PM

Thanks miracle baby11 but I think I'm out for this month already sad.gif I'm cd17 and my temps haven't moved sad.gif feeling a bit deflated. I knew it would take more than 3 months to fall PG but it worries me that my body isn't working 'properly'

Tweedle-Dee you can stay here as long as you want! You're lovely company and we're all here to support you xoxo

Tweedle dee, so glad your bloods are ok, goodluck with fri will be popping in to see how you go

#18 miraclebaby11

Posted 29 October 2012 - 08:06 PM

All you BFP'ers may stay here as long as you like. Us leftovers need your super pregnant vibes around us, so we can all float into the grads dig on the same cloud  biggrin.gif

This group will be empty once all you guys leave, there definitely won't be many of us left.

Mackaymum: Be positive and don't count yourself out just yet. Go get yourself a three pack it seems to work and not of the long neck variety either  tongue.gif



#19 bluetea

Posted 29 October 2012 - 08:55 PM

Thanks ladies.  blush.gif That certainty was a exciting morning.

I understand what you mean tweedle-dee , we all have been on each side of the coin at one point or another, so whilst we are always happy for each other there is that small voice in your head that asks "when will it be me?"
I hope that came out right?
I have everything crossed that we get a few more BFP's in the next few weeks.


Mackaymum - Maybe you haven't ovulated yet? Is that possible?

miraclebaby - thanks, you guys are like my saftey blanket. I hope you are able to go pick up a three pack soon.  lol

Posted 30 October 2012 - 05:43 AM

Yay yay yay rach and ivf baby! that's brilliant news!!!

Mackaymum: yeah maybe you haven't ovulated yet. I reckon I o'd cd 21 this cycle... it's completely normal to ovulate later and even to be a bit irregular (my cycles vary between 4 and 5 weeks). i wouldn't worry about it, just try to keep an eye on signs of o. i never had the patience for temping, though...

tweedledee - it sounds like everything is going fine! i'm sure your dr is just being overcautious...

afm:

details for the list: me: 33, dh 38 (how did we get that old??) ds 20 months

af didn't show today but i guess she's really due tomorrow. at least i have a busy day at work tomorrow so i won't have time to think about it much...

#21 IVF Baby

Posted 30 October 2012 - 06:53 AM

Thanks girls...I might do the same, stick around till the blood test comes back and confirms with nice high numbers.  I sincerley appreciate all your support, it helps in this horrible 2 week wait, now have the horrible 2 month wait till that all important 12 week mark.  The stress never ends!  
Let's keep this run going - 3 in a row is great, but we can do better.

The power of positive thinking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#22 romeolima

Posted 30 October 2012 - 07:33 AM

Morning everyone, so i did another test this morning it may have been the slightest bit darker but not much, i know Thats not really much to go on but i would like to see a nice dark line to feel confident. Can't remember if i said i have doc app next Fri earliest i could get in to him.
Im the same as the other will hang around for a little bit if Thats alright.

Hey does any one know if its safe to take claratyne. I get really bad mozzie bites and Thats the only thing that relieves it. Last time i was pg they stopped biting me for some reason so didn't have to worry.

My fingers are crossed Ruth

Romeolima there is this service called Mothersafe which you can call 1800 647 848 and it will tell you if you can take it while pregnant. It is run by the Royal Hospital for Women in Sydney.

waves.gif to everyone else, hope you're all doing well.

AFM: So I manged to eat breakfast today, this would be the first time in about 4 days. I did only manage a piece of toast but that's better than nothing I guess.

The pains in my belly are constantly there today they come and go in sharpness. I have made an appointment to see a Dr for this afternoon (my dr is away this week). Not that I think they will do anything apart from say take some panadol but after 3 or so weeks of this I've had enough.

Edit: Cancelled Dr appointment as started bleeding. Maybe I should've made the appointment 3 weeks ago.

Hi Ladies

Just popping my head in from the grads group!

First of all - Congratulations!! What a sweep of BFPs!!

I do stalk fairly regularly to see how you are all going, I'm so happy to see such good news!

Second, there is a grads group specifically for TTC#2 grads and we would love for you ladies to come and join us! Most of us participate in our DIGs and the Grads group as well.

The link is http://www.essentialbaby.com.au/forums/ind...owtopic=1009765

I wondered why many of the latest BFP's hadn't joined us, but perhaps the link not working was the reason why!

Hope to see you all in the grads group soon!

#25 romeolima

Posted 30 October 2012 - 01:37 PM

thanks *Shirley temple*, I will stalk for a while lol and head over when I get some confirmation

Miracle baby, so sorry keep an eye on your pains though and get them checked out if they are still there, could it be your endo?
