Hi Ladies

sorry for my absence again! Feels like I've not been on here for ages - spending most of my time either in bed, dozing on the sofa or hugging the toilet bowl

Katy - TEST! Do you know how many dpo you are?

Lilesmom - did I totally miss a post over xmas about losing your mucus plug?? What happened? I'm so glad the scan showed everything was ok, did they say if the plug would reform or something? And how come you need physio, have you got a bad back? I hope the treatments sort you out My lower back has really been starting to play up. I was seeing a chiropractor before I got pg but not been back since. I know it is ok for me to go whilst pg but I kind of want to wait til we get the ok at the 12 week scan before I do anything.

Discoria - nice to have you back! Glad you had a good time over xmas. I definitely recommend taking the pre natal vitamins. I really think having DH take them did the trick for us. We started them the same time as I started clomid and only took 3 months for us to fall pg. They say sperm takes 3 months to form, so I really think him taking the vits improved the health of his swimmers

Belated Happy New Year to you all! Hope 2013 is a great year for all of us xxx

Katy, I agree, test, test, test!

Today is my 2nd positive OPK, so should be OVing today or tomorrow. Will be dtd tonight and tomorrow even though I'm not 100% (again, ugh!) and just want to sleep, sleep, sleep.

I have had loads of cervical mucus this cycle, so I'm hoping it's a GOOD SIGN

I hate the tww and it's barely even started for me. I am going to have to find some fun projects to do to occupy myself in these coming weeks. Feeling positive though, so keeping my fingers crossed xx

I'm around 17 dpo, a lot of lower abdomen pain and sore boobs. I'm going to see out the 30 day cycle mark and then test. I've never taken notice of my AF, as I've had no need to. So I'm going to test Wednesday night. That'll be a 31 day cycle then!

Oh Discoria sorry to hear you're not feeling 100%. Hope you get better soon! But great that you got 2 +OPKs and the increased cm is a great sign My 2wws really started to drag once I was on clomid, def agree getting some projects etc lined up to keep your mind occupied is a good idea. Got everything crossed for you this cycle.

Katy - wow 17 dpo! You could def test now if you wanted, though understand not wanting to get hopes up etc. Weds is not that far away though, good luck

Smiler, that's why I think I'll wait a little longer. If it's a negative I'll wait a little longer and pop to the doctors. I hope I am just trying to keep a balanced mind! Xx

hi smiler so sorry ur so sick xxxxxx hope u feel better soon xxxxxxx
i have a bad back for yrs babe, i fell in work about 6 yrs ago and have back trouble since, i used to go for physio and chiropracter and stuff before but my physio said that it wil never be fixed just managed hated it at the time but used to it now
went private for awhile but first physio was right after all
but im gla dthey r sending me now cos it would get worse with bump otherwise.
the prolactin can cause back trouble in people or worsen it if u have it already .
yeah im not sure about goin before 12 weeks, i didnt do much before 12 weeks due to fear xxx
i cant remember if i put on here about mucus plug or not, maybe i forgot
or maybe its cos its pma , not sure.
i had some (tmi) new weird mucus, it was clear but it was stringy and gloopy ,i knew it was weird so i rang doc office and nurse said i needed to be checked and it sounded like mucus plug . so i went in and doc said its normal and fine. but the nurse in my docs office is brilliant, she knows so much.... so i was a little freaked cos she thought it was to worry about. doc said so long as not pink or brown and ur not leaking fluid its fine.
but i wanted peace of mind of a scan.
we hadnt bd very often cos i was a bit afraid , but it seems to happen very time we bd.
internet is very divided , come say normal and regenerates and some say they lost bubs after , so u can imagine i was a bit worried but alls ok thank god .
it put me off bd though a bit

disco ria fx for u sweetie, xxx
happy bding



im a dumping ground for food last few days adn im wrecked, off to bed early tonight me thinks

Hi Ladies! I havent been in here for a LONG time but figured I really needed some PMA! I see some of you are expecting (Congrats!!!) and some are still waiting for thier perfect lo to come. I am currently in the begining of a tww. Just a recap since I last wrote here... I fell pregnant back in the end of Oct with #2. Long story short, old dr didnt believe me which, ended up in ER which confirmed pregnancy and made me switch drs. New dr said my progesterone was lo and put me on it asap but it was too late. I mc at about 5 wks New dr did some tests and found out I had a genetic mutation (MTHFR) so put me on rx prenantals, baby asprin, and extra folic acid. Had an HSG and although they didnt see the dye go into one of my tubes, they said that all was still ok and now Im in the begining of my TWW. I hipe you all had a great holiday and new years eve and hope that 2013 brings us all the healthy babues we so ache for!

mommylov!

Oh I am so sorry to hear about your second loss And also sorry to hear about the MTHFR...I don't really know what that is but at least you now have a diagnosis and you've been put on some kind of treatment. This pregnancy I have self-prescribed a low dose aspirin....not sure what my doc is going to say, I'll prob get told off. But I read it can help and can't hurt so I thought why not. How long are you going to take it for?

Lilesmom, speaking of aspirin, did your sister tell you how long she stayed on it?

Anyway mommylov I'm sending you lots of positive vibes and hope that this 2ww is your lucky one

Lilesmom that must've been pretty scary when you thought you were losing your plug Maybe it was a combination of your cm and OH's semen?? I don't know about you but I am having so much cm this pregnancy it's a bit yucky

Discoria do you know if you're in the 2ww yet?

Katy good luck for testing tomorrow

AFM am feeling quite well today which is nice I had TWO packets of crisps. TWO! So bad!
