Hey everyone!!! *cough cough cough cough cough*
Ugh I am sick today with a bad cough - worse today than the last few days. Feel so crappy. I'm considering taking tomorrow off work and if I do I'll keep DS home too (normally at daycare) as his cough is also pretty bad. I don't think it's anything to be too concerned about, it's just a really bad cough.
Fairly sure work has completely run me down. Man, I'm only just about to start week 4 - that's a very bad sign. How am I going to be at the end of term if I'm pregnant at the same time??? Bloody exhausted probably! Ah well, not waiting any longer to TTC so I'll take it when it comes.Cheri
- OH so excited for you to go to Paris, you will just love it!!!!!!
It's up to you, but you could try a 'relaxed' approach to TTC while away? You know, not using protection and see what happens? That's what we did to get our DS while we were over there. Plus, I reckon if you conceived over there while having wine and cheese etc it wouldn't harm the bub as it'd be pretty early days - I can understand if you wanted to cut it all out in order to give the best chance of conceiving but if you're thinking of waiting anyway, I figure you may as well enjoy yourselves and let things go the way they want to go!!! Just my opinion. Plus you can't pass up the chance to have all that good wine, cheese and romance!! WooooWOOOOOOO!!!!
Hahahaha love that you ate the donut! I was tempted but got myself something yummy to stop me!!!! Everything certainly sounds like it's getting itself ready to be pregnant (re your AF stuff) so that's good!
BTW good call on keeping your DD back - I think with most kids, if they're going to be quite young in a year, it's better to keep them til the next year. I think they cope a lot better - just seen a bit as a high school teacher, plus my brother was young for his year and he hasn't made many good decisions in the past few years as he was exposed to stuff and wasn't mature enough to deal with it properly. I'm sure it's not like that for every single person, but it does tend to happen a bit. Pretty exciting with the violin! I'm going to get pain lessons for my DS when he's a bit older as he already shows an interest in music and DH and I are pretty musical too.
Hope your stay in here is short lived too! Good on you for getting yourself ready and losing weight etc. I did that a couple of months ago and it feels so much better to start from a healthier point when TTC. I think I'll be careful with eating when I'm preg this time round, just making sure I don't overdo it with the cheeseburgers like I did last time. Might make the post preg weight a bit lower than last time!
I'm sure the antibiotics have mucked around with your cycle, hopefully it'll right itself soon and put your mind more at ease. Mine's irregular and is sometimes a bit of a bugger to work out. It would be great if they all just went like clockwork wouldn't it! mumma
I bet you're pretty excited for tomorrow!!! Hoping you'll be our very next
!!!!!! Would be so nice for you after your long wait. Best wishes for you mate. You and all the other ladies doing some sort of AC in here give me hope that if it doesn't all go to plan naturally, we have options, just like Cheri
it's good you've got a few plans of action there - great news! And also with the longer cycle too, hope that's a good sign of things to come. And yes, it's a good idea to talk with DP about the morals of it all. I think it's important to have it all figured out in your head before embarking on it. I haven't had to think about it all myself as we haven't gone down that route yet, but I think there are lots of things that can be done to get the baby you'd like to have and I don't think there's anything wrong with getting help with it too. Hope you can come to some conclusions with your DP and keep moving forward.
11 months is a long time, you've done well to persevere so far!!!
, I'm not sure what it was but it does sound a bit like it could have been an early M/C, especially with getting a faint line on a test. I would feel devastated too lovely.
Don't be embarrassed about your earlier posts mate, you were getting lots of signs that you were preg and I'm sure heaps of us in here would have been thinking the same as you. You can come in here and rant all you like, that's what we're here to do - listen and try to provide some support to each other when times are crappy. Oh lovely, whatever it was, a non pregnancy or a M/C, that really sucks that for a while you were expecting it to be okay. Big hugs to you and hope that you can be kind to yourself over the next few days. If it keeps bleeding heavily though, I'd go to a doctor just to make sure it's all okay. nurserobin
- Have fun in Avoca Beach! It's a lovely place! I've been up there a few times myself (I live in Sydney).
Hope everyone else is going okay - I'm thinking I'll test on the 24th but I don't have high hopes. The more I go along the more I think we missed it this month. Anyway, anyone else POAS this week???
