I have been reading throught the posts regularly over Christmas. I'm sorry for the lack of personal's, it's hard to remember everything I want to write to people. I will have to keep posting more regularly to stay on top of it, or else I will need to sit down with pen and paper and make notes for everyone!

Bit random topic but here goes!! does anyone else have really freaky realistic dreams??
Last night I had a dream that I was UTD and I had this amazing very Hollywood birth LOL
and I was trying to get the baby to feed (weird right?) and He wouldn't do it!! So I got all upset saying that the baby didn't like me hahahaha
how strange!! I think I need to stop reading EB forums before bed time it's messing with my head!!
Hope you're all having a nice weekend
Can I ask what a Hollywood birth is? If it means I go in looking like me and come out looking like Angelina Jolie, sign me up!!!

I hope all goes well for you on Wednesday! Babyinabackpack
- your post about the scooter licences made me chuckle a little. Will you go back again soon? As they as crazy with their driving skills there as the Chinese are?seaside_shells
- sorry to hear about the arrival of AF, however MEGA jealous to read about your Nepal trip. Was that from one of those internet voucher deals? Only ask I saw an offer come up on one of those deal sites for Nepal and I was SOOOOOO tempted, however finances, leave etc would not allow.
As for me . . . it has been great to have some time off over the festive period, the body definitely needed the break from work. I ate so much and slept so much, it was fantastic!
On NYE, I was fully convinced I was pg - symptoms were all there and I was feeling wretched . . . so after some deliberation with DH, I did a last minute run to the pharmacy (I'm pretty sure the pharmacist rolled her eyes when she saw me running through the doors at 4:50pm) and picked up a 2 pack of hpt's. I admit I had to spend some time working out which one to get as I had no idea, have never done one before. I ended up asking the pharmacist for input (which I'm sure was the result of another eye roll . . . tick tock tick tock its almost closing time).
Even though I was a week out from AF being due, I still felt it was worth doing (and my hpt said it can detect up to so many days before AF is due). Read the instructions of the test (whilst feeling like a naughty school girl, not sure why) and patiently waited for the first wee of the next day. It wasn't a big shock when it came back negative as I was only POAS because of some symptoms . . . let's be honest, the main symptom (AF) wasn't even late.
I have to admit, even though we're so early into TTC and this was the first hpt, I was a little disappointed it was negative.
Each time I walked into our ensuite, my mind would wander to the second test sitting in my cupboard . . . almost summoning me to give it another try, however I ignored it and kept going about my business.
Earlier in the week, I went and donated blood for the first time, which was nerve wrecking as I hate needles, but I did it. You have to fill in a questionnaire which asks if you are pg, which after discussion with the nurse, I ticked no. No point in ticking anything else when the test was negative. Just declaring it to the world that I wasn't pg. (Highly recommend we all donate blood, it's not a long process, doesn't hurt and is soooooo beneficial).
Few days later, AF doesn't show up when she's due (she's very prompt at keeping her due date) . . . start to get excited, however once bitten, twice shy and all of that . . . I decide not to think about it as I'm not going to be disappointed again.
AF is then 2 days late . . . excitement starts to creep in again . . . but this all feels so weird . . . I've got all my AF symtoms - cramps, wind and (TMI WARNING) doing the BD feel's dry and uncomfortable. SOOOO CONFUSING . . .
DH asked me yesterday morning if I did the second hpt yet, which I hadn't as I forgot about it when doing the first wee of the day. He asked me to try remember to do it this morning, so I said I would.
I woke up at 3am bursting for a wee, but tried to return to sleep as I didn't want to be messing around with hpt's at that hour. Sleep was really uncomfortable and I eventually gave up at 5am and toddled off to the bathroom to do my business. I was standing there waiting for the 3 minutes to be up before I looked at the result, really expecting to return to bed disappointed. . . .
Disappointment didn't arrive . . . Instead I've received a
result. The test I used does a conception prediction too and estimates I'm 1-2weeks pg (which they say is 3-4 weeks by Doc's calculations). I was so excited, poor DH was woken up at 5am . . . he was excited but in typical man fashion soon returned to dream land. Me on the other hand was wide awake with mind spinning at a million miles per hour trying to figure out how accurate it is, wondering if it was possible to get a blood test done on a Sunday morning in Melbourne (heheh).
Obviously its now later in the day, my mind is still spinning . . . aarrrrgggghhhh I might be PG . . . but then my crazy brain says I might not be . . . really need to know, but I'm also scared (in a good way, if that makes sense?).
Would love to do this blood test with my local GP (as she rocks and I'd like to share it with her). As some of you know, I live in country Victoria, however work in Melbourne CBD, so getting to the GP isn't always easy. Does anyone know how long it takes for a blood test to come back or can the GP test there and give results on the spot??
I don't want to wait too long . . .
