jessie do you know what type of fibroid you have?  I have a subserol fibroid which si at the top of the uterus.  The type of fibroid you have will depend on whether it is an issue.  My gyn doesn't think it is an issue and 80% of people have them.

Cracked and tested today, 8dpo. Negative, obviously. Still bummed.

Mummzy those announcements are so tough to hear. Don't worry - it won't be too long before it will be your turn to make an announcement.

MrsDarcy Sorry that George is (or might be) on his way.

Jessietroy hope everything turns out OK. Like some other adies have said, there are lots of bfp stories from ladies with only one ovary or with fibroids.

MummyLyss hate being that crazy lady ips analyser but it's impossible not to be! FX for you and will be ph34r.gif

Dabri will be ph34r.gif you too. 8dpo is obviously way early.

Happy your chart is very confusing. I would assume that FF is right. Amazing how even with OPKs and temping it can still be a mystery

Andrewsmum that sounds like a completely crappy day, I'm so sorry. I'm a bit of a klutz and break A LOT of mugs and glasses. And my MIL showing up unexpectedly? Worst. Nightmare!

FHL How are you feeling? Hope you've had a nice relaxing Saturday.

AFM Went out with colleagues at the Opera Bar last night and drank way too much champagne. Combined with Thursday night's cocktails and the fact that I don't drink very regularly = big hangover for me this morning. Not ideal for househunting - I was feeling too queasy to even go into the first house!

Luckily we found two houses that we really liked and weren't too expensive (yay!) so now we just have to weigh up the costs on buying the very cheap house that needs a new kitchen and bathroom, or the more expensive house that doesn't need any work. Both will need second stories put on to accommodate kid #2.... if we ever manage to get kid #1 that is!


For those who need cheering and are fond of cats, I got a laaugh out of this gif today:

I wanna know what Blue Waffle is but not game to google it. Anyone care to enlighten me?

How about literal videos? I always get hooked on them. Start with Safety Dance,  but Total Eclipse of the Heart and Jingle Bell Rock are also well done.

Posted 09 February 2013 - 06:47 PM

I am always googling and scaring myself. I should have learnt by now.....

Gemcat sorry to hear about the hangovers. We are currently looking at buying our first home. We are looking at houses that dpont need anywork. Its hard though as houses are so expensive! I am glad you found a couple you like.

I wont be testing till March due to my long 31 day cycles.  sad.gif
