My dog has pancreatitis! The poor thing. I think it's my fault too. I gave him my husband's leftover General Tsao's chicken. Well anyway he's at the vet on IV fluids and pain meds and may be able to come home tomorrow. It's been a long two weeks!
Nise, truly delighted to hear your happy, happy news. So exciting for you all as you set out on your new path. Keep us posted on your adventures together, she is a lucky little girl to have you to give her a new life with love and opportunities, shouldn't that be the least every child gets :-) xx

Sorry to hear pdmc that witch got you and to concide with your trip too
Misty, when I room agnus catcus for 1-1.5 month, it just delayed af arriving, my temps plummeted but af took a day longer to arrive than usual...it did nt do anything for my temps during the month so I stopped it. Maybe I should have hung in there longer....but I feel if its going to help it should either do noting the first month but not make things worse.
Max, hope the dog and your family ( wrong order..) are improving. Jee, you are having a right s*** time at the minute.
Good luck Garfie for consultation...hope you get some answers.
I'm ovulating today and we tried to bd this morning but dh couldn't deliver 'his goods'. He had a colonoscopy yesterday and was sedated and has had a hard 2-3 days...fasting and lots of laxative! he thinks its the sedative causing problems....
So frustrating....we're going to try later....but trying not to put to much pressure on him..althought don't think I could hide my frustration/disappointment.
Blimey the Witch seems to have really gone to town in here - everyone is going to be cycling together at this rate!
Thanks for the well wishes. Special Guardianship is a cross between Adoption and Fostering. Where you get paid for fostering you are virtually an employee of the authority and the authority holds parental rights and is involved constantly - With SG you don't get financial help other than tax credits/child benefit as per most people, but the authorities hand over all parental rights to you so you make all parental decisions and the authorities are no longer involved. Unlike adoption the child does not cut all ties with the birth parents and we would have to consult them if we a) wanted to change her surname, b) take her out of the country for longer than 3 months. c) have her circumcised!!! or d) have her put back into foster care etc. The level of contact with birth parents is set by the court and could be for physical contact or distant contact via PO Box - ours is the later. It will be up to us if we want to give physical contact rights to the birth parents in the future or the birth parents would have to go back through the courts. That's kind of it in a nutshell.
So pleased for you Nise, it's been a long journey.
Garfie, thanks for asking after me. I haven't posted because feeling a bit lost. I always had hope before... Just get that BFP and everything will be alright but now I think that these miscarriages are down to my old eggs. Chromosomally old, which is why I miscarry at around 8 weeks each time. I got asked my age when I had my scan to check everything had gone, they asked my age, looked at each other when I told them, and I just saw pity.
My GP has advised that I probably won't find anything wrong from the tests they've done at the hospital and it's all down to my age. My only hope being donor eggs but we don't have the money for something like that and there's still no guarantee. Maybe we'd get ourselves in more debt if there was but my dh won't consider spending that sort of money without a guarantee, despite the numerous times I've told him that it doesn't work like that!
Good luck next week, I'm keen to hear what the FS tell you.
Oh Barnie You know you have our complete empathy here.
Nature is light years behind our modern society. We no longer expect to be decrepit by 40 and dead by 45 like in the dark ages. We're adding 30+ years to those figures now, but our ovaries haven't cotten'd on have they
'Beyond peak reproductive years' doesn't mean 'OLD'.
I get what you're DH is saying about guarantees. I guess that's the same reason i have for holding back on tests ect.
Nise - i found that interesting. I wondered what the difference between fostering/adoption/SG was Keep us posted - it's so exciting!
Hi to everyone A fresh layer of snow today - it's up to 7" in places here, and there's 'panic buying' in Tesco
