• Thanks JAMIE and KARI – I have found the ladies on TTCAL such a support and it is nice to recognise a few names here! Off to do something positive – hope to get to know you all in the coming months!

  • Hi girls, I’ve been in TTCAL for a few months, after my 3rd miscarriage this year – it’s been a big year! But I got a BFP on Monday, and so far so good, so I thought I might try out popping over here. The next 3 months, let alone the next 9 just seems like an incredibly long wait. I can’t bring myself to believe that this one will be ok. But it is…[Read more]

    MRSW – I think you have made such a brave and good decision, I know how you feel about not wanting this to eat you up for your whole life, at some point it is better just to let it go. I’m not quite there yet, but I hope that if i do get there I handle it as well as you. RED – hey superstar, how are you going? I’m still waiting for AF, any other…[Read more]

    Well, thanks for the inspiration girls, I know I said i was saving it for next week, but DH came home all grumpy and so I decided he needed a bit of cheering up… Let’s just say he went to sleep with a smile on his face! 😉 It’s good to change it up a bit, especially when you’ve been together 10 years and been through a lot of bad stuff lately.…[Read more]

    Just had bloods taken – 7 tubes for me, 1 for DH. Apparently some kind of pressure build up occurred and my blood went all over the place, on the book with everyone’s details, all over the tubes… Felt sorry for the nurse who had to clean it all up! Have to wait a few weeks for the results. Re. the baby aspirin, my doc told me I could get some,…[Read more]

    HI all, does anyone take low-dose aspirin? When do you take it – all the time or only post-ov or post BFP?
    Lots of love and luck to all those going for it this month.

    FINLAYS – So happy your DH is back! I bet your little boy is over the moon too! RED – Thinking of you today. MIN – go girl! It is worth more than money. MONKEY – hoping for some great news for you soon… POTTYTRAINERS – Good luck! My DS was 2 and one month. The treats worked like a charm! Also the underpants with trains on… Having said that he…[Read more]

    FINLAYS, SINNA, RES – hi, thanks, yes I got through the day. DH and I went up to the waterfall and threw in a special stone and some flowers, was quite moving and very pretty. I felt a bit calmer having done it. But this morning I dropped DS into daycare and one of his little friend’s mother had had a baby yesterday and DS started saying ‘I got a…[Read more]

    2B – those are OPK sticks I’m guessing? At least it’s nice to get a line on one, gives you a bit of a feeling of control in an uncontrollable world… What a nice short cycle you have, adds up to more tries than most – I hope this month brings you luck.

  • forestmum replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    JUBE – congratulations! I’m 5w too, and feeling this wait for 12 weeks is sooo long – I found the 2ww between ovulation and BFP hard enough, this is way worse! Glad I’ve got lots of you girls here to share it with. CHARLIE and PHIN – I recommend the TTCAL forum too – the girls there are wonderful and really helped me deal with my losses and…[Read more]

    RES – good luck this month, thinking lots of positive thoughts for you! RED and 3MROCKS – I feel for you with your friends and family’s babies around. I am struggling with spending time with my friends who all have new babies or are very pregnant at the moment. They are all understanding, but it doesn’t seem to make it any easier. I feel like such…[Read more]

    2B – That’s great, I’m glad you’re feeling excited about it, sometimes you need something like this to lift you out of feeling down, and feel positive that you’re doing something. I really hope that next month is better for you.

  • forestmum replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    RED – That’s very special that you have made all your presents – what kind of things did you make? I bet Christmas is fun in the redhead household! I also have most family across the world, but I still manage to leave to the last minute… Every year i make a calendar with a different picture of our family (particularly DS lately..) for each…[Read more]

    Hi FINLAYS, I’m a bit low the last couple of days, thanks for asking after me. The due date of my 8 week loss is coming up on Sunday, and it’s weighing on me. Also getting to the pointy end of my cycle, AF due a week tomorrow. So generally feeling a bit stressed and weepy. I know I should motivate myself and get up and go for a walk or something,…[Read more]

    2B – my doc said to take the aspirin everyday for the last 2 weeks of my cycle, (or from about O to AF) stop taking it if AF comes but keep taking it if pregnant. You should probably ask your RE if that’s their advice too.

    RED – what a beautiful smile he has, and AMAZING hair! We are so lucky to have our boys, to make us laugh and keep us smiling. Even if we never have another, we know the joy of motherhood. I am hoping that you don’t get to be my cycle sister next month, for all the best reasons! MIN – thanks for your thoughts, don’t get down, it’s not over til AF…[Read more]

    2B – wow, I’ve never heard of that! What kind of size is it? Might be more intimate than standing on your head?! Do you know what the preseed is supposed to do?

    MARY – so sorry that you lost your baby. I went through m/c at 8 weeks a few months ago. Bled for 10 days, got AF 30 days after D&C (normal 28 day cycle). Cried for more than 10 days – it takes a long time to get over emotionally, I think. Take care and use the time to talk and grieve with your partner, I’m sure things will work out for you.
