hi Ladies, Its me Valhalla Im back! sorry I have been so MIA. First weeks of school, work, etc its all been really busy and then I didn't know there was a new thread! I have just been reading back over the posts so much is happening with us all.CBMum
aaawww lovely, I know this is belated, I just really wanted to say I am so sorry about the mc, I hope dh gets back soon, (if he's not already) .
Hubby's away through all of this so pretty grim times with cramps and bleeding. Just want it done now.
Really helps to know other people have gone through it and gone on to have healthy bubs. I was thinking maybe someone's telling us we're done??? But maybe there's a new bub around the corner that will make this all worthwhile.
CBMum, DEFINITELY a new bub just around the corner. Please look after yourself. PS your 2yr old does sound like a rock how beautiful, looking out for you, be really proud of her. Peaches
in the 2WW already, this year is flying by, I'll be stalking tomorrow, FX3saCharm
I totally get the rethinking this decision, its a big one, I hope you have been able to find a way move forward with it. Not that this in any shape or form applies to you, but it is my thinking on things, (and also the voice of older eggs) this really intensive time with toddlers passes and your memory about it fades a bit! But as my little ds has got older my desire for a new little person to join our little family has really got stronger. I just wish for me I had followed my heart earlier. Whichever way you ultimately go and it isn't set in stone, I hope you find peace with your decision.Courteney-b
I am starting to realise that I will have to slow everything down a bit if number three materialises. Do any of you other lovely ladies work? Things are so flexible for me which is great. We will be leaving here towards the end of the year so I am hoping this coincides with a new baby and I can just take me time settling into a new place and not rush back into work etc. I usually start to get itchy feet around the 12-15 month mark.
Courteney I hear you about the slowing down and the itchy feet after 12-15 months, I work, I have been 4 days per week for the last 2 years but just this year have suddenly cut back to 2 days!! Im just training up a new person for my old role and Im moving into a completely different role in marketing. Its a bit daunting as Im such a green horn at that stuff, but it will be so great to learn some new perspectives on the business and Im so excited to be able to slow down a bit on days and be able to just take ds to school and not have to stress about before and after school. It must be great having flexibility with your work it must take so much stress out of decision making. FX this is your cycle and you catch that golden egg, I will be stalking for testing.....Mo2k
Thought I'd pop by and say "hi!". Thought I may have been pregnant there for a while but no, just irregular periods! Still wanting #3 but have decided that what will be will be..... Need to stop charting etc it is sending me loopy!
Sorry Mo2k but maybe this will be your lucky cycle
I find I go abit "loopy" too but I think its my cycle not the charting!Bunbaker
long cycles and delayed O are hideous it just makes the whole process take so long. Hope dh had a great birthday and so glad you managed to do the dance at the right time! Hope your O's arent always so painful.Perplexity
hope all is going well.
Where is Valhalla ? She still around?
Im back!! Been missing all of you, you are all so lovely and positive it is really good to be able to come in here and talk naturally about so much stuff that I just cannot reveal irl at this stage. You are all really supportive and helpful with information and experiene, it stops me going crazy with the charting and ttcing stuff.
AFM had a bit of a dud cycle, I got two really clear OPKs about cd13 and cd15 but no temp shift, FF put in CH's but then removed them. am thinking my trip to the horrible ob put my uterus out of action this month due to a horrible very rough test she did to test my cells in the lining. I think the roughness of this test, meant my body just didn't O or if it Od I was bleeding and it didn't do what it needed to do. Was feeling terrible as I had had the "one big follicle" just before I was supposed to O, so feel as if this, if it did in fact, hatch (!!) was wasted. I have to have faith it wasnt my last egg. Anyway just really pleased and feeling good and positive about my new cycle. And also feeling good that my last cycle was only 28 days long YYAAAAY!!!! Only a small positive but still something good.
Wishing everyone a happy sunday.
