Morning all, I couldn't be bothered getting out of bed this morning so decided POAS would be a good motivationto get up even though it's way too early. And then I mucked up the maths and thought I was 7dp2dt but actually I am only 6dp2dt so even earlier than I thought. And it was a BFP so I managed to POAS and confirm I still had the trigger in me. Ooops. I put the test I'm the drawer and will now happily wait until at least Sunday

Hopefully that trigger bfp is a good omen for you ckmelb! I’ve never seen a bfp in real life so I’m tempted to test to see the trigger next week too, just to see those two lines...

3 days til blood test. I’m thinking of testing on Sunday just so I’m not surprised at work (with either good or bad news). I’ve been on twice weekly prontogest injections and progynova and pessaries. The nurse isn’t wonderful with them though, so I’ve got a whopping bright red bruise/mark around yesterday’s dose. The knot has gone down a bit but it still really hurts. The last time she drew blood from me I bruised badly, the pathology nurse who did my next blood test was shocked at the damage. I avoid her for blood tests but can’t for prontogest :/
How are you feeling @tryingagain?

ckmelb - I love that you miss counted...I am so glad I am not the only one who does that hahahaha :)  In all honesty I don't know even where I am anymore. I think it is a definitely a positive sign for you :)

Mirrors - I'm OK.  I had a huge big cry last night which was really good and I am coming to terms with everything.  I just have to remember what will be will be and the world is over populated anyway :) BUT DH and I have the perfect name for a little boy or a little girl hehehehe just in case I am wrong :) My rug that I am crocheting is coming along really well as well.  It is so beautiful now :)

Baby dust and happy vibes to you all xoxoxo

Thank you all so very much for your well wishes and I hope you have lots and lots of luck.  All my love to you all on your journey xoxo

trying again - I am so very sorry to hear this news. I know that the general air and attitude around children when it comes to assisted conception is that those of us lucky enough to have a child should be grateful and just accept it. Whilst that is so very true on so many levels, we are so so SO lucky and so so SO grateful - it doesn't take away from the trauma and sadness surrounding the inability to have a second child. I am so very sorry that your journey has come to an end and you most certainly have given it your very best. Again, I am so sorry for your grief and I will be thinking of you. All the best to you and your family xx
