Welcome to the New Year, full of abundant BFPs and, of course, the two most wonderful BFPs and bubs to have ever cooed and pooped and cried, claimed by FHL and yours truly.  

The rest of you will just have to make do with standard, run of the mill type little bundles of joy.  wink.gif  biggrin.gif  happy.gif

Happy New Year

hoping for a bumper January.  I am testing on the 13th.

thanks it was mainly cause of his depression as he didn't tell me he had run out of med about a month back grr Men what would we do with out them?

#13 Andrews mum

Posted 01 January 2013 - 02:46 PM

Mini, hope 2013 is your year, and you too Mags.  This whole thing is pretty stressful,  I hope Mini, your husband can't get his head back in the right space. Take care.

can I be put down for testing on the 10th,  I think the hcg injections will be out my system by them.  Crazy symptoms here, but think thats just the injectable hormones (either that or I'm a bit crazy) actually both might be true.  

Happy new year ladies, FHL when are you next up, hope you are doing OK.  Just waiting on my wee man to wake up and then a picnic in the shade I think.  Just want to share something though.  We have been doing toilet training here,  wee man looks down and proudly tells me, "look mummy a tail!"  The lifelong penis fascintion is underway! Must remember that for his 21st.

Happy New Year everyone. Hope you have all managed a relaxing time spent with your loved ones xx

Mags can you please put me down for testing on the 26th. Ive just finished my first AF post MC and I really have no idea what my cycle will do. Testing date is based on my normal 29-30 day cycle so I may need to adjust it later in the month once I know when I've O'd.

Good luck to everyone this month ... looking forward to hearing about lots and lots of BFPs!
