Hi again girls angels mum I live in new south wales in Australia that's interesting ur partner wants to move here, all my ancestors are from England. That's exciting u can ttc again in deb I'll be not far behind u I can't wait!! Had more tests today too my levels are now 17! Yay, and thanks Sarah, for all ur help I will def be ordering those books. I'm the same as u in that I don't want to get all obsessed when the time comes to ttc like with opks etc my friend did that n she didn't fall for a yr and them did wen she stopped trying! I'm just trying tostay calm!! Do u plan on having any more babies?
Kate thats such great news that your levels are continuing to fall!! It is hard not to get a bit obsessed when you start ttc again, after I read the Zita West book I started looking for all the other signs of been in the fertile period. I found it much better just been able to track my cycle through observation - rather than getting into all the temping etc. OPK's can be so stressfull - plus its so easy to miss your fertile time just by testing at the wrong time. I felt much, much more in control when I understood my cycle better.
AngelsMum Baby&Bump is a fab site - there is something for everyone on here I joined whenI was already pregnant but its been so helpful over the past year or so, and I've made some lovely friends.
Kate we do plan to have another baby at some point - Steve would have another tomorrow but I think maybe when Oliver is 1 we'll think about it. I'm not broody again yet but I'm sure I will be soon enough
Hi Sarah yes I'm so relieved they r dropping, it would be awful if the levels stArted to rise again which I alwAys prepare myself for it's easy to think the worst these dAys.. But i think I'm on the home straight now it's so amazing how healthy I'm starting to feel gosh looking back I was so very sick .. That's greAt u plan to give little Oliver a sibling some day I want a big family, thTs why we started young. Can't believe it's been 2 months this week since my pregnancy ended.. It's such a crazy world.. Today i cried, I thought about how if my baby boy was still with me how much I'd be feeling him kick right now et c.. I felt him move for the first time 2 days before I lost him forever. I feel blessed I got to feel him kick:') wel I'm off to sleep now..'it's 11pm here and I have work in the morning.. Thanks agAin sweet Sarah xxx
My hormone levels are now back to normal, and i was just wandering if it is possible for them to rise again and if they can why would this happen? I don't want to get my hopes up now that I have had my first normal result if my hormone level can go back up. I am going to ring Sheffield hospital tomorrow to see if i an likely to be discharged by February, because i got a letter to say if my hormone drops within 56 days of the end of pregnancy the 6 months will start from the date the pregnancy ended. If it took longer than 56 day, the 6 months follow up will start from the date of your first normal result.
Anyway, you no i said there is a baby boom about me at the moment, well one of the men who I work with came into our office with the scan pictures of his and his wife's baby, I found it so hard cooing over his baby, yet I had to put on a happy face. After he left I was in tears, his wife is due 11 days after my babies due date and I was thinking that my baby should have been that size. I was totally gutted. I just hope situations like this will get easier with time.
Angels Mum GREAT news about your levels!!! It is possible for them to go back up again - which his why they do the followup - but it also very, very, very unlikely - please don't worry that they will - your levels have dropped to zero with no intervention - the odds are seriously stacked in your favour now Well done for keeping it together looking at your collegues scan pic - its very hard isn't it? For me, it has got easier in time Getting past my babies due date was a biggie for me, and the 'one year on' stuff was all strange because I was expecting Oliver by then. My due date with my PMP was May 10th 2009, Oliver was born May 8th 2010 . . . . strange eh?
Jamari's Mummy I'm so glad you're feeling better! Its lovely that you felt Jamari move before you lost him, what a special, special memory for you Its bittersweet I know but so, so special
I need your help! Does anyone have all the leaflets etc to hand re follow up? I threw mine away (the celebrate the end on my follow up lol!), I just need to know what is says - if anything - about testing after you have a baby? I remember it saying that you needed to test so many weeks after baby is born - no one contacted me after Oliver arrived so I e-mailed Sheffield and they sent out a test pot etc, which I sent back and thought that would be the end of it, but they sent me another kit? I freaked out a bit and did a preg test - BFN. So I'm puzzled why they need to keep testing? Any ideas?
Did you get pregnant before your follow-up finished? Because I was told if i get pregnant before they had given me the all clear they would just follow-up after the baby was born. If not, i am not sure why they are sending you out more kits. I would give them a call and ask them, they seem to be very friendly and you will get your answers there and then.
Quick question, did you have a councilor ring you from Sheffield? I have had a letter from a councilor, they have been trying to call me but i have changed my number. She said it was just to make sure I was doing ok. Which i thought was really nice. I'm gonna give her a call tomorrow.
Hi loveliesangels mum congratulations on ur first normal result.. I know it is a mix of emotions but I'm so happy for u as I am looking forward to my first normal.. Somewhat... I guess is bittersweet, marks the end of something special but also signifies the beginning of something else. Girls I am now down to 10! It's been 2 months. How time flies, only four to go. Sarah thanku for saying that coz that's exactly how I feel, I feel honored. To have felt my lil man move around .. At that time I didn't know anything was wrong but at the same time I didn't take it for granted it was so special! I'm sorry Sarah imnot sure about the testing after u had olly? Have u found out anymore about that? Do they do that for all mummies or just us Pmp mums? Hope u r all doing well... Nd angels mum I'm so sorry about ur workmate with the scan, it's so heart wrenching, everytime I see a little baby I physically ache and my heart actuaaly HURTs!! I can feel the break. Luv to you all beautiful mummies
