Hello ladies. Sorry I haven't dropped by in a few days. I have been feeling VERY reclusive and just want to hide in my house and not talk to anyone but DH. It's very frustrating.

And maybe I am just being sensitive and hormonal, but this really hurt my feelings.....I reported off work this morning because my in-laws were in a pretty bad car accident and we were at the hospital until early this morning so I had only gotten like 3 hours of sleep(and as if just being that low on sleep weren't bad enough, my ENTIRE job description is driving......so wouldn't that be just a little dangerous for me to go in barely able to keep my eyes open?) Anyway, so I went ahead and text my boss and our ISS guy before I was supposed to go in and told them what happened and I wouldn't make it. Our ISS guy simply replied with "ok" and my manager didn't reply at all. He always gets ill when ANYONE reports out no matter the reason and that is the first time I have ever reported out! But neither one even so much as asked if my mil was ok. I am really frustrated with them right now. I just don't even know what to say to them, don't really want to say anything to them at all. It's not like I didn't have a good reason and my mil fractured her spine. Am I overreacting or do I have a right to be upset about this?

Anyway, minimoo- I really hope you get that BFP really soon! That has to be so frustrating! Does the line that keeps appearing have any color at all or is it more like a shadow. Can't wait to hear how you come out. It will be good I know it!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I'm sorry about your work situation. That sounds really frustrating. I absolutely don't think you're overreacting.

Absolutely I do.

What day is your scan, FSB? Do you know yet? I'm sorry you won't get to do that until so late. That's really annoying. But it will be so amazing to look at your baby at 15 weeks. I bet by that time it will really look like a little person.

I just scheduled my own next doctor appointment and NT scan, Feb 28 and March 7 respectively. So that's the next thing to look forward to! I hope they do a scan at the appointment, but I'm not getting my hopes up this time, especially since there will be a scan the following week.
Hey seaweed eater! Hope you're okay! I have my booking appointment on Wednesday then it will probably be another 2 weeks or so before my NT scan... I think if all goes well... And I'm hoping so every second of the day... I will go 'public' after this! I hope you do manage to get a scan at your appointment - fingers crossed!

What's everyone got planned for the weekend? Just a chilled one for us I think,really hope it doesn't snow like its forecast to, I hate the cold!

Have a great day all! X
I hope you're good smawfl! Easy on the poasing! Remember they can throw random results at you when your hormone levels get too high - causes horrible unnecessary panic like my oh so shite GP made me go through!

I'm chilling out this weekend. Have loads of school work to do - marking! Boo! Just been watching movies and lounging around! So want to go back to Zumba but DH has expressed his concerns and reservations! I NEED to do something!
Hope you enjoyed your anniversary! x

Shh - hope you had a lovely anniversary also! x

The due date should be the same day of the week as ovulation, right? My LMP started on a Tuesday (and my tickers are based on that), ovulated 16 days later on a Thursday, and now my EDD is on a Saturday. At the scan I actually measured exactly consistent with the Thursday due date so I feel like that's the "real" one. Not that it really matters just confused, and annoyed that I essentially have to wait an extra week for appointments since I can't schedule them over the weekend and have to wait at least until the Monday 6 days after my LMP-based day!

Sorry that was so long and confusing!
Seaweed eater - try not to worry too much! When I went for my early scan, according to my lmp - I thought I was 7+6 (EDD 3rd sept based on online calculator) but had mesurement of 8+3 (EDD 29th aug).
Then at my last GP appointment - I swapped GPs to the other doctor in the surgery, I told him my lmp... He pulled out the stupid ring date predictor thing and gave me an EDD of 22nd aug! I just nodded and thought, yeah whatever... like I'm going to believe anything you say at this surgery!
But based on the scan EDD, that would've meant I conceived on cd7? I'm just trying not to worry too much and I've gave up on expecting anything swift or with urgency in terms of appointments from my surgery! Hopefully midwife will be more constructive! I live in hope!

Hi ds. Oh dear, that's awful. I hope you're keeping well and that your in laws make a speedy recovery. When you're a hard working colleague who hardly has time off - I think employers take it for granted that you're going to be there. You completely done the right thing to rest up. Some people are just so insensitive. Hope your weekend gets better and that you get some rest x

Mini - hope you're okay - all our fingers are crossed for you!

Lots of continued dust and positive pregnancy vibes to all TTCers and mamas in waiting!

Thanks ladies. My manager is only 26, and due to his age and (I think) his personality he has a high tendency to be a bit of a brat sometimes. I guess I really shouldn't complain TOO much because he is usually a really cool boss for the most part except when the brat rears it's ugly head lol. I guess that's why it bothered me so much. Thanks again for the support

As for my weekend it is going to be and just flat out housework ALL weekend. I am starting to get pretty nesty I might be fixing to get on DHs nerves a bit He really has been so good though with the mood swings and hurt feelings and so on. Any body else starting to do the "oh no, that's just not gonna work" and "oh that's just nice enough" "that's gonna get in the way when I'm holding a baby" and so on? I feel a whole house redo comin on

FSB I can't believe you're almost 10 weeks already! That's fantastic almost a fetus!! I'm so excited that one of the active thread members is going to be into second tri soon. That's huge. Can't wait to hear how everyone takes it when you go public

Not good


Ok so typed this once and lost it but update from me . . .

Sorry not been about for a couple of days but couldn't face it. So as you know been getting some odd results - nothing in the time but then 10 mins later a faint line on ICs (managed to upload some bad pics - see what you think).

So Fri am took a predictor early response test. At 5 mins there was nothing so posted BFN and then had breakfast - had a look before I left for work and there was a faint line (AGAIN). But instructions said don't read after 30 mins and this was def in the 30mins so thought it was the start of my BFP. Thought I'd pick up a CBD to show DH so got home on Fri and checked earlier test - very obvious BFP still - see pic.

So did CBD knowing what the result would be but then it was NOT PREGNANT. Did IC - again no lines.

I was very confused so was going to test again in the morning - but temp plummented so didn't bother and AF showed up this morning

So I think it must have been a chemical where the HCG levels never really got off the ground sufficiently to give a reliable result. I think this as I'm never late, there's a def implantation dip on my chart and I can't have imagined all the symptoms.

What do you ladies think?

Hi All

It's snowed here too last night - nice and cosy day in for us too me think!

DS0910 - I definitely don't think you're overreacting! How are your in-laws doing?

FeelSoBlessed - I don't think I'll POAS anymore for that reason. It's just so hard waiting for the first scan, I just want to know everything is ok!

Gimgem - Keeping everything crossed for you!!

Minimoocow - so sorry I think you're right and it definitely does sound like it could have been a chemical, especially as your DPO was longer than normal and you had the temp dip
