Just phoned the dr as I still haven't had a date for my referral. I'm raging!! Turns out my dr has decided that I have to wait 3 f**king months to see if bfs sperm gets better before referring me !
Had enough of this now!
And to top it all of my spotting 7 days before af seems to be turning into bleeding / spotting on and off for a week before af starts and I feel like I'm constantly bleeding

No way?!
that is really SHIT.
Surely you are independent of each other, he's getting sorted but you still need to be looked at incase there is more than one issue?
Is there any way that you can get a second opinion at your doctor?
I would be totally pissed off if I was you?

That sucks about the bleeding. Have you thought about acupuncture? it helps all sorts of issues in regards to bleeding/pain.
The only thing is its a bit expensive. My first session was 48, now its 42/week. I will go until I finally get a BFP then maybe reduce it to once every 3 weeks as its good for blood flow and relaxation. Tomorrow is my 4th session, hopefully i'll see some results soon. I have to say since i've been going im sleeping alot better.

I'm loosing hope
Turned my spare room which I was waiting to turn into another bedroom into my study/ sewing room. Bought new furniture for it, think I've given up and trying to get use to the idea of only having one child....
I'm going to see if this bleeding carries on this cycle again, if it does then I'm going to phone her and get an appointment and will probably go nuts if how I'm feeling just now is anything to go by!!!

I totally get what you are saying, as i said earlier - Im wondering how long it is until I lose my shit.
I think we will only have the one when I finally do get pregnant, I dont think that I can go through all this TTC again!
Nice re; The sewing room. My mum was huge into her sewing, my little sister has started getting into it the past year or so. Nice therapeutic way to pass time

Hey Lucy!

I think you should definitely say something, that bleeding for two weeks is crazy. They really need to get your appointments in full swing, your health is totally independent from your husbands so you should be treated as two separate cases in my opinion.

Well i've not had much luck in the health department either, I followed up to ask when my laparoscopy appointment will be... They said end of March / but more likely start of April. I know in the grand scheme of things it doesnt seem that far away, BUT they are supposed to see you within 18 weeks of your referral date, and I will be exceeding that.

Work has been absolute hell also... just need a break!! So we booked a 10-day holiday to Thailand to do absolutely nothing. Will be there over my next fertile period so you never know! I dont think we were lucky enough this month, we didnt really BD much...
I havent told my boss about my holiday as only booked it today so hopefully she says its ok as we leave on the 24th. She is leaving the Organisation soon anyway so I think her motivation is starting to decrease.

I desperately need a break - cant wait for the sun!!

As for pre-natals, im just taking folic acid and my husband is still drinking his Proxeed sachets. Might start something else soon.

To be honest, ive been totally laid back about it this month and now I have the holiday to look forward to, its all in the back of my mind... i was hoping the operation would be sooner but such is life.

Hope all is well with you apart from this conceiving malarkey!! The days are getting longer... spring time soon!

That's a bummer about your surgery!! Hope it's not too long a wait! Omg Thailand !! What an amazing break!! Hope you don't have hassle trying to get time off!

Still no peak this morning ......what have these vitamins done to me ?? Maybe I have been lacking in something all along?? I wonder if they will affect my lp too?

Any sign of your peak yet?
Strange what certain things can do to your cycle / body. I hope you get it soon.

So I basically just told my boss I was going. I havent had a proper holiday in a good while so its about time She wasnt overly impressed but currently im contracting long term here so she couldnt really say anything as it was already booked anyway!

I CANT WAIT for the sunshine. 17 sleeps and counting

Im out this month, AF Arrived.... and early I might add. Im a 28-day cycle without fail but the last two cycles have been weird. Last month was 31 days and then this month she showed up early on CD24.

Not sure whats the story there, I can only think its the acupuncture. So i'll speak to Angelo on Weds and mention it to him. I dont want to be spending 50/week if its only going to bugger my cycles up! But on a good note, its certainly making me sleep alot better which is fab.

Im not that disappointed this month as I had a feeling our timing was a little off and of course we are going to Thailand on the 24th so I will be able to enjoy some cocktails in the sun.

How are you getting on?

Got my peaks on cd 18/19 which is a bit late. But at least I got it! I bet you are soo excited for holiday!

Told my mum about our struggles...don't think she really knew what to say. She never struggled and had loads of kids, but that doesn't bother me, I feel like by telling my mum a weight has been lifted glad I told her now
