A Little About Me A Little About You
Hi gals & guys,

Firstly welcome to BumpAndBaby, I hope you enjoy your membership here & take up the full advantage of online support from those who are currently or have previously been in your footsteps.

My OH & I were silently trying for a baby with the impression I was actually infertile but we carried on with life at a normal pace knowing there was help out there & we were referred to the infertility clinic.

In January 2006 I experienced a rather unusual period started with spotting to nothing to what I believed was my normal menstrual period which then followed by spotting so much to my surprise a friend advised me to do a pregnancy test. My heart was pounding so much my OH could feel & probably hear it. We were so happy but sadly a bit blind to trying to conceive & pregnancy in general. In brief we can only describe the outcome as a horrific ectopic ordeal.

I became wiser to trying to conceive, pregnancy in general, testing & charting & have since discovered that we are both very fertile & have confirmed 4 known pregnancies since our ectopic sadly all ending before 5 weeks.

I have found much support on the internet over this last 6 months & I have opened this forum with all the best intentions hoping there are other girls out there who reach to us as a community for support & encouragement.

Iím also very proud to have [name removed] involved who holds the same warm hearted intentions as me & of course my partner who has been making this forum what it is today with many features arriving that he hopes will benefit you all on your journey. Heís been working pretty hard bless him, some of his hard work is behind the scenes but I can say he knows how much a community like us can help other women & men out there so well done him (love you very much).

I would also like to say a thank you to Imi-Maddie's-Mum (who has helped in a huge way) & Arcanegirl who have agreed to be apart of the team & who I feel will help this community grow & grow with a friendly smile along the way.

I would like to share a bit about me with you guys please feel free to add your own bit about you to this profile.

A picture of me with my sister Charley, there is a 23 year gap between us:
