Darling Loulla I share Fairey's sentiments!
Will miss you dearly but hope to never see you again here either
I was never given any hcg numbers but 100 to 970 sounds very nice indeed. Just think how those numbers are going to go bonkers from now on! All the best to you and your lovely, healthy little bean
superfruity I hope you can get those results today and aren't made to wait until later in the week! I know how annoying spotting is. When I started last week, signalling the arrival of my first AF, my previous 9 weeks of spotting totally came back to haunt me. I hope yours clears up VERY soon. I'm sure it will! I had the same thing with temps all over the place at that point too, so I didn't bother starting until it had stopped. Oh, and your box is lovely
I threw out all my BFPs and deleted the couple of photos I had of them, and kind of wish I'd kept just one now of course.
little lion hooray new iPad!! I've been toying with the idea of getting one too. Not that I NEED the distraction, but I'll justify it by saying that it would actually be useful for work, especially for sharing my portfolio on the go! (Perfect justification.) CD7... How long until O time for you? Or does that just make you focus on it more!?
MaryLou it's all a waiting game isn't it? Sorry to hear about the infection - I hope that's cleared up for you now. I also hope you are able to figure out where your cycle is at too!
Fairey long cycles are a pain... I was always 34 days, but the longer I've been off the pill the more irregular they've gotten. Now I'm anywhere from 27 to 34 days, so I always get a little excited when AF doesn't show, but then find it's just a longer cycle. We really should just be able to pre-program the numbers that suit us best, yes?! (And I know, I'm trying to to think of it that way, but how can you not? ...Last cycle before Christmas...)
PCM I'm so sorry to hear that your hcg levels are messing with you. That's just not fair. I don't know anything about how hcg levels work at that stage, and if they can fluctuate a little, but I hope your next test shows that they are settling permanently. I must point out though that I adore you for pointing out that you were about to use a rude acronym
I hope I haven't missed anyone! I've got a shocking memory like that...
AFM: CD4 now. AF was super heavy for 3 days and has now dropped off to spotting. Just hope that buggers off too! I seem to O around CD18-22, right when DH will be away, but hey we can still try, you never know!
Found out on the weekend that a lovely friend is expecting #1 and we would have shared the same due date! Am very, very happy for her, and I was doing really well until the date was announced and I went into meltdown mode, but for someone who has never personally experienced a MC she has been wonderful to talk to. She's going to be amazing, but I of course can't help thinking how amazing it would have been to experience everything right along with her.
On another note, DH has been able to talk to a few guys about what happened recently too, which I'm quite relieved about. You'd all know how little women seem to talk about it in person, and I guess the men talk about their side of the experience even less! Both men that he talked to recently had been through 2 and 3 MCs with their wives, and both have little ones now, so I hope that reassured him
