Congrats lilrojo! I had to do a double take cos you wrote it so casually, thought it Said bfn at first! so chuffed for you, an Xmas baby too! And not long til your first scan!
Hispirits, sorry to hear your little monkey is being a cheeky boy and causing you worry! Not too much longer now.
Stranj, sorry to hear the monitor went off again, must scare you big time.

Claire its been so cold hasn't it! Really hope spring arrives soon!
Trix, hope af arrives soon so you know what's going on!
Not really much news here, still not enjoying working but am enjoying the money lol. We are looking at buying a run down house, but its a bit complicated as there's loads of interest in it and they're now going to do a sealed bid sale after the open day on the 20th (cant view it until then!) Then the highest bid wins. So probably not going to get it but we can't help but get a bit excited. It's a 4 bed with kitchen, dining, sitting room and a huge utility, loads of potential for extending, and a 1/3 acre of land in the middle of the countryside. Does need a hell of a lot of work though. What's meant to be will be, as we weren't really looking to move til the end of the year to save more, so I guess there's benefits both ways
Oh has a dic appt in Monday that he doesn't need so I think I'll go and take Conor... He gets this pin prick rash so I'll use that as an excuse!!
Got another bfn today .... Do you think I just ov really late then??? Cause I got egg white on the 24 th ish... So today is 37 do of I ov then I would be 13 dpo thereabouts.... I havent went this late since I was preg with the triplets.... Before them I could have went 40 odd days....but have been regular 30 days sine having the girls!
Im si confused.... Wonder I'd it common to get bfn but a blood test positive??? Would hardly think so but will Defo get one on Monday if she not arrived!
I hope you get your dream home dreamer!!! Sealed bids can be very tricky good luck though x
So things are ok here.. I started spotting on sat dr figures its from the progesterone suppositories.. but hasn't stopped yet.. had my bloods done on 10dpo.. and all was good.. now 1 week later and im spotting still.. goes from brown, to pinky, to red.. and its freaking me out
Ugh lilrojo, you must be so stressed I remember my spotting started at 5 weeks and was a total mess. I know my dr told me that it common in early pregnancy (for me it lasted the whole pregnancy) but it is just so hard remaining calm about these things. I was lucky that he used an ultrasound machine at every appt, so anytime I was spotting or bleeding he did an ultrasound and I was reassured. The only problem is that when I first went in at 5+4 they couldn't see anything, just a gestational sack, so I was sure I had a blighted ovum. Well I hope this waiting period goes as quickly as possible for you and that they can soon put your mind at ease
trixie, sorry you are stuck with wonky periods. Have you ever tried vitex? I started it right after coming off bc and I had been on bc most of 20 years. My first couple cycles were a little longer at about 32 days, but then dropped down to 29. It takes about 1-3 months to kick in.
So I am starting to freak out about autism again. I had actually calmed down for a little while lol. Giada is STILL not pointing or clapping. She turned 15 months yesterday. She still has no words that I know of. It's hard to know if she knows she is saying mama and dada as she says these sounds all day long. If I ask her to say mama, she copies me and says it, but I don't know if she realized mama = me when she is saying it. If we are saying it she knows I am mama. Anyway, the main thing that got me worried is she has been grabbing our hand and taking us to the door and putting our hand on the knob because she wants to go outside. I guess this is called hand leading, and it not seen typically developing children (unless it is accompanied with verbal communication...like if she were to also say :lets go outside") SHe also does this with clapping. SHe takes my hands and claps them together rather than clapping her own hands. ANd a couple times she has done this with her toys. DH and I will do something with a toy and she wants us to do it again so she puts our hand on it. Have any of you experienced the same thing? I am getting worried and dh thinks I have lost my mind. We see the ped soon and will ask, but I worry that he is not a specialist. It is so hard because everyone says "trust your gut" but it is hard to know what your gut says when there is all this stuff on the internet . She is my first so I don't have anything to compare to, and our parents think she is perfectly fine. The pediatrician always thought she was fine. So if it wasn't for reading up on these milestones then my gut would say she is absolutely fine. But then I read all this stuff and it starts to change my gut feeling. You know what I mean? Anyway, sorry for the rant but I was just wondering if any of you have any insight.
Just a quick one I've been in hospital
My epilepsy has got bad I've been having grand mal seizures.
My bumps not grown either so they have scanned me and I have very little fluid around the baby, which they are going to monitor.
I've been given steroid injections to nature babies lungs,
Hoping they the letting me home today on the understanding I come back twice a week for bloods and scans to monitor the fluid if it doesn't increase they will get baby out around 37 weeks.
