Wow a new thread already. It's from all those "super" long posts.
Wishing hope you are around to answer a question. I am starting Clexane injections from tomorrow. Also am on aspirin :-( So my question is this, how long are they keeping you on Clexane? I hate needles but anything for my little beanie.Oh i am such a dum^a&&. Just read your post. 30 weeks huh. Ok well you are my inspiration. So glad that we are in this together.
Dreaming so happy to hear your news. You so deserve this babe. After all the early bleeds, isn't this just wonderful. I am glad your obygn is hands on.
My ob has also put me on a plan and will watch me very carefully. I will get to see him a lot more often and he said any time i m uneasy, just pop in to see him and to see a scan of bub :-) He understands my anxiety given my history.

Blah did anyone else watch Packed to the Rafters?? Breaks my heart

K haha yes I am certainly in it for the long run. To be honest it was a relief he said 30 weeks. I have been taking it for so long now I'm getting used to it. Some days it really hurts and other days I can barely feel it! Anything for our bubs. It is so worth it

Emmy g yes I watched it :-(( too sad and now I wish I didn't watch it! Having so much cramping tonight!
Posted 29 January 2013 - 09:53 PM
Dreaming- I hit lots of stretching pain at around 12 weeks and even now I'm still get twinges and cramps... I'd love to say it gets easier but the little thought is always at the back of your mind once you've lost the innocence of your first pregnancy I still can't bring myself to really do much in regards to getting ready... I'm down to double figures for the count down to bubbles arrival and it still doesn't feel real to me...

there is such a good vibe going on here ladies I love it!
I had another emotional day today I guess its because I ovulated and its really my first month trying since MC. I guess I know we have done all we can for now and that's why perhaps. Its in the hands of the angels now. Had a slight name change too ladies lol
Bring on the progesterone tests monday hopefully that will set my mind at ease.

Pixii- fingers crossed Hun! Hope you get some amazing news in 2 weeks time! Also great your getting your progesterone checked, are you having the day 21 test? Good luck xxx
Cibou- did your period start or just cramping? I really hope it's just cramping, that was my biggest pregnancy sign. Crossing my fingers for you lovely xxx
Posted 30 January 2013 - 05:57 AM
Emmy- thank you :-) I hadn't had any cramping for a couple of weeks and then it started up again last night! So stressful! Xxx

so good to hear the scans are all going well!
I thought some of you ladies might want to know what i did differently this month, im not getting ahead of myself but even if this one doesnt stick, these small changes could work for you.
so.. i drank a glass of grapefruit juice everyday from cd1-cd17 to help with cm and it worked i definately had heaps of cm around 0 cd15. the juice tastes gross though!
-i took a vitamin B complex everyday to help with luetal phase and might be a coincidence but its the first cycle ive had in 6 months that was completely normal with o, length of cycle, length of luetal phase and no spotting around o.
-took folic acid for pregnancy
-didnt take prenatal vitamins and dont think i will, ill just keep taking the folic acid and eating healthy
-no caffiene or alcohol from cd1 leading up to ovulation
-ate a tablespoon manuka honey everyday mixed with cinnamon from cd1-cd22 heard honey helps with fertility, apparrently women used to eat it after they got married to get pregnant and thats where the name honeymoon came from
- I changed to full cream milk as i read somewhere skim milk has something in it that may mess with hormones, not sure if there is enough evidence with that but thought worth a try
-I started drinking water out of bpa free bottle, sounds silly but i watched an episode of dr oz and he was saying how bad the chemicals in the plastic in bottled water is and thinks it could be a cause of early puberty in girls and 'possible' fertility problems.
I did another hpt this morning and its heaps darker! what a relief! the one in nov was fading already after 2 days. might go get a bt today i think
Posted 30 January 2013 - 08:12 AM
Good Morning Ladies!
K – I’m so thrilled your app went well. Do you have to give yourself an injection every day? That would be so difficult! But anything for bubbles, you are right x
Chelby – Woohoo!! Another BFP! How wonderful. Congratulations. Sticky baby dust coming your way x
Wishfully – How are you feeling love? So happy everything went well over the weekend! We were worried about you! Xx
I've missed a heap of people but i can't go back that far to the other thread hehe thank you to everyone for your concern, the roof is fine - thankfully DH is a carpenter by trade, so he is handy to have around in those moments.
We decided that I would travel to see DH this weekend as i thought i would O on Saturday... but i took a OPK this morning, and it's quite dark. I'm worried i'm going to ovulate tomorrow?! I will take another test shortly and maybe see what you ladies think. We haven't booked the flights yet and i'm thinking there is no point wasting the money as i wouldn't arrive until Friday evening - and if i ovulate tomorrow then it will be too late i think
Posted 30 January 2013 - 09:08 AM
Glamour - great you survived the weather. It looked crazy up there. Is there anymore rain expected? Keep us posted on the OPKs... Although dont OPKs just look at the LH surge, which could be 12-48hrs before the eggy drops? Then you have about 24 hrs that the egg survives? So Friday could still be good especially if you get a darker result today!
Chelby - thanks for that info. Good to know. I'm interested in the vitamin B and your LP... Was it long or short? I had spotting before O for the first cycle this time, didn't know it was something to be concerned about.
Dreaming - thanks hun! Actually no bleeding yet. The cramps last night were so like AF, but a lot more intense. Got so bad at one stage they made me feel nauseous. Did you get cramps before your BFP?
AFM - 10dpo. BFN this morning bad cramps last night more than usual AF, not so much now. I swear when I smelt DHs coffee this morning I felt off, it just smelt so strong. Weird heartburn right now. No bleeding yet. Don't want to get my hopes up. I feel like if I say out loud what you're all thinking ill jinx it! Shhhhhhhh
Posted 30 January 2013 - 09:13 AM
I sure did, i had the worst period type cramps from about 9dpo, and they continued on for a few weeks! I swore there was no way i was pregnant, but was so surprised when 2 lines popped up. Good luck chicky, hope its good news for you xx
Glamour - ahh opk's do you know how long after your positive you usually ovulate? I hope it gets darker tomorrow! Glad to hear your ok up there xx
Posted 30 January 2013 - 09:27 AM
AFM - im 6dpo and boobs so tender and sore like last time when I tested BFP,
some spotting yesterday too so FX'd for me!
Posted 30 January 2013 - 09:29 AM
kibou- my luetal phase was only 11 & 12 days for a couple cycles and the mid cycle spotting went for up to a week sometimes and a couple of long cycles of 44 and 54 days all over the place really. this was my first cycle that was like my pre mc cycles 12 months ago, 28 days with o on cd14/15. i dont know if the spotting is a problem but my gp said it sounded like i had a hormone imbalance causing it. someone else that graduated from this group also said she got a bfp the month she didnt have any mid cycle spotting. some girls do get spotting from ovulation which can be normal so hopefully thats all it is with u. also i had a bfn on 10dpo and a bfp 11dpo, i also had af like cramps, gassy and hotter than usual, dont give up hope yet! fx for u in the next few days
Posted 30 January 2013 - 09:58 AM
Congratulations Chelby - so happy for you. And K and Wishfully happy for you both too!
Girls sorry there are just too many posts for me to properly catch up on personals!
AFM - lovely holiday down he coat and I tested on 11 dpo too and unfortunately BFN - I am hoping its just too early. I have been a bit distracted though as I have managed to tear my calf muscle. So spending time lying on the couch doped up.
Posted 30 January 2013 - 10:29 AM
Dreaming Yes I am going to go and get the CD21 test for progesterone levels. I hope that sheads some light on my MC and poss chemical. Hopefully your cramps will die down a bit for you so you can relax but I imagine your uterus has alot of stretching to do now so I am sure its all that. Sticky bub vibes for you
Kibou I also had stomach cramps about 5-7 days before AF was due when I got my BFP. So hopefully its just implantation cramping. I really hope this month is your month
Chelby I will try anything to get pregnant as I feel my age is a worry more than ever now. What a great list of things you did this month and so glad your test is darker yay!
Elippo Oh dear your calf must be killing you. The rest is a good thing though. I hope it was just too early for your BFP to show FX for the next few days
Spokie Hopefully this is your sign this month FX for you as well
Glamour I am sure you have used OPK many times but is the test line definitely as dark as the control line?
I questioned quite a few of my tests thinking they could be positive until I saw a real positive. My tests were faint then got a bit darker then faint again and then bam the line was as dark as the control line and the next morning it was darker and the following day negative again. I tested twice a day at 10am and between 6-8pm. I put a pic of my test here if you want to see http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/pregna...galleryid=92208I hope this weekend is when you do O
K and wishfully I hope your doing awesome
Ally So glad you had a great time away. When are you going to test? Lets hope this month is our month
Has I am so glad its you studying not me I fall asleep reading books lol
Newday hope AF comes and goes without too many issues and you can feel confident about ttc again. I was never so glad to see AF this month normally I HATE it lol
Sorry if I missed anyone
AFM Well I am not sure how many days post O I am as I am not real sure how you count it but if I go from the darker than control line test I am 2dpo lol. My temp has spiked on FF which is comforting. I do sleep with a fan on all the time so not sure how accurate all my temps are but the conditions are the same every day so they should be.
Ally you can stalk my chart if you like hahaha

Hi girls - man this thread is moving quickly! I will do my best to catch up, but apologies in advance as I will miss people!
Pixi - I would say you Od on CD14. I am by no means an expert, though! So maybe 3DPO? TWW sucks.
Elippo - you know 11DPO is super early, so keep resting and cross everything!
Spokie - ooohhhh! Will be stalking for you big time! Kibou - same for you!
Glamour - I usually O 2 days post +OPK so Friday might not put you out of it at all. It's worth a shot IMO. That way at least you will feel you've done everything within your power.
Chelby!! MEGA congrats and thanks for the list - very helpful.
Dreaming & K -so glad your appointments and scans went well!! This is IT!
Newday, Trust - how are you girls holding up at the moment?
AFM officially hate TTC today. Just OVER it. MY temps are not spiking like they usually do and I am not even sure if I Od. I am sick of waiting, waiting, waiting....
Posted 30 January 2013 - 10:55 AM
Ally I would love to see your chart can you link to it? Its good to take a look at others I think.
Posted 30 January 2013 - 11:02 AM
Kibou - false negatives are common that early. I thought I was going to get AF after stronger than usual cramps and then got a BFP. They felt different to my usual period pain. I also thought that this really expensive shampoo smelt disgusting and it made me nauseated.
Chelby - Make sure you are getting enough iodine, 500mg per day. It's important for brain development. That and folate are the only necessary supplements for pregnancy.
Elippo - ouch! Calf tears are really painful, can you walk at all or are you on crutches?
Spokie - oooohh exciting, keep us updated.
Wow so many people with positives - hope to see you graduate from the group soon! It makes me feel really positive about it all
Saw my O&G yesterday, three weeks post D&C - apparently my uterus should have healed by now and I'm all good to go! He told me there was no need to wait, which is in agreement with all the new research. I have absolutely no idea where I am in my cycle. I think the stress of these exams will probably prevent me from ovulating anyway. Oh we'll, might BD anyway but won't be very hopeful until after AF arrives!
Back to study
