    Terri, ES, how are you, ladies? Enjoying the spring?

    I have been feeling depressed and exhausted in the past few weeks. My DF bought us tickets to Phila, so i can see my girlfriends. We are going next Tuesday. It keeps my spirits up now...

    Lenka-I'm sure it's totally natural to need a break and to be exhausted so I'm happy that DF recognized it and is treating you to a trip. Yay!! Have a great time.

    Drauma-awwww. He is just the cutest. Congrats again!!

    Aw Lenka, sorry your feeling down, this break will be just what you need! Enjoy :)

    Everything's ticking along fine here...I took my first clomid today. I'm supposed to have a blood t St tomorrow but it's bank holiday so I will need to go Tuesday. Then I need to ring them n sort out an appointment to have hycosy done before I go away on hols.
    I've started drinking green tea, I heard it helps weight loss and is good for fertility and I'm trying to wean myself off milky earl greys. Haha.

    Thanks ladies :) Everything is going well over here. I'm getting stronger every day and my little munchkin is doing great. He's 16 days old today, Friday... can you believe it???
    Here's a new photo of him, just stretching and chilling on the changing table :)

    SJ, glad to hear you've started taking Clomid. Hope it works for your eggs! It did for mine ;)

    Terri, how are you doing? Hope you're letting all the emotions out that are probably bursting in your body... it's way better to have a little melt down now and then rebuild, rather than keeping everything inside and being super strong on the outside. Hope you're getting loads of support around you and I also hope you'll be ready to go again soon :*

    Lenka, I really hope your trip is doing you good. Have fun with your girlfriends and do everything you want to, you deserve a little break from the routine at home.

    When do you pick the name, Drauma? He is getting so big already!! What a super cutie. I'm just doing tons of dog training. We adopted Fun so we're working on leash walking and listening skills. He's motivated by food so if I give him a little less in his food bowl he's more apt to listen. I love it!

    Emotionally, I'm doing just fine. Waiting for AF to try again. I'm ready.

    Hello Ladies!
    I was laying in bed this morning with Lennix thinking about you all and thought I should check in.
    Terri, I'm so sorry to read your sad news. I went from being estatic for you to being devastated. Hugs and love are sent to you.
    Drauma- he is gorgeous and I hope ur recovery is going well. BF is hard to get the hang of. I did it for 6 weeks and decided to exclusively pump.
    Lfrans- great to hear that ull be trying again soon! That's exciting.
    Sj- how are things going on clomid? I hope u get ur BFP real soon.
    Lenka- I hope ur trip was just what u needed. :)
    Things here are great. Lennix is almost 6 months old and the apple of my eye. :)

    Not much going on here anymore.... :/ I check in regularly and am always sad there is so little activity, it was so nice chatting to all of you and sharing good and sad moments.

    lfrans, wow, time passes so quickly, can't believe it's time to start TTC again! Hope it goes very well :)

    Tynmeg, glad to hear from you and Lennix.

    Terri, how are you doing? Glad to hear you adopted Fun, hope he's making you happy :)

    SJ: How's life on clomid?

    Steph, Lenka... hello? :) Happy one year birthday to Emma, Steph, it's just around the corner!

    Life is mostly good here in Iceland. My little munchkin is more than 5 weeks old now and we're going on our first trip to see the in-laws. It's a 3 hour drive and we'll stay there for 2 nights. DB is competing in a cycling tournament tomorrow over there, cycling 160 kilometers!! (100 miles)

    The christening was last Wednesday, June 17th on Iceland National Day. Our little boy got the name Bjarki Valdimar. Bjarki comes from the tree birch but can also mean little bear. Valdimar was the name of my boyfriend's brother who passed and we named our son in his honour. It derives from Russian name Vladimir and means a powerful chief. Then he also has his surname. We celebrated at home and invited 40 of our closest friends and family. He got loads of lovely presents and we ate A LOT of cake! :)
    I'm still not feeling well, the cut is still healing, breastfeeding is hell, the doctors think I have Reynaud's syndrome and have me on a drug called Adalat to try to fix it, next Monday we'll see if I'm any better, if not I think he'll just be bottlefed formula. I have some skin problems as well, extreme itching all over and the doctors have taken many blood and urine tests and have no clue what it could be, it just started after birth. Then my back is killing me after the epidural mayhem.... But hopefully it'll all get better soon.

    Here are some photos :)

    Drauma-thanks for sharing the pictures. I love Bjarki Valdimar. That is so nice that you named him after DB's brother. Sad story though, but Bjarki is just the cutest. I like the milk on his mouth and you look great, for being in a little bit of pain!

    I had bloodwork this morning to make sure my hcg is gone. Of course, my cycle started on Tuesday, so I know my hormone level is down, but I guess I have to do it anyway to be absolutely sure things are back to normal. I'll start up again after next cycle with IVF. I have one more chance to make this happen. No pressure though! This month we'll try naturally. We leave Wednesday for Mexico, so that should be fun. My classmate is getting married. My dad has been in town for the past month so I've been busy cooking and such. He is fixing up a condo that he has in a nearby town. His tenants left so he's renovating it and finding new tenants. He'll probably leave next week. I have enjoyed hanging with him.

    Hope everyone else is doing well! <3

    Just a quick note drauma as I only have a couple minutes to write during Emma's nap (should spend the time cleaning in preparation for my parents visit next week, Emma's first birthday party, and tonight we pick up our 8 baby chicks (we forgot to do ANY research at all and they hatched early....we are SO not ready for them!! Haha)

    Anyway I wanted to say about the postpartum itchiness. I suffered from that, too. Eventually it went away but I was super miserable in the meantime! It's like your body TRIES to find ways to torture you! Call it pregnancy's last death grips on you before the hormones leave for good. It honestly took 6 months for me to finally feel healthy, healed, and back to my normal self! Give yourself time. 6 weeks healing time they tell you is bulls***

    Terri good luck on your trying naturally! I've been stalking your ttc journal and was glad to see af returned. Mexico sounds so fun!! Enjoy!!

    How are the rest of you? Sj? Everything ok?

    Emma turns one year old in a week. I feel so blessed to watch her grow.

    We were going to start ttc #2 but 1. she still is up 2 to 6 times a night and 2. my lp is only 7 to 9 days long now so there's no way I could even get pregnant. Which means a period every three weeks!

    Hi guys, just had a quick catch up, I'm still in Greece on holiday...but I fly home today so will do a proper update in a couple of days.
    Holidays must agree with df!! We've bd about 6 times in 3 weeks, i hope he keeps it up for next month. I wish I could test today but I'm going to see how my temps goes in next day or so then maybe buy a test tomorrow night.

    Hi girls! I'm new to this forum and this thread looked like a good place to start. My soon to be hubby (getting married this month) and I have TTC this month. I'm 3 DPO and I have just a dull ache around my uterus. I'm probably reading too into it! im also really exhausted and I have creamy CM! I've only just started charting and last month this time I still had a couple globs of EWCM and creamy CM. this time however it's strictly creamy CM. the CM seemed to change right away rather then gradually like it did last month. Day of ovulation it was really egg white and 1 DPO it was milky . Hoping this is an early sign!!?!? Crossing my fingers! My BB are not sore (yet) and they tend to never be sore .. Even before AF. This wait is killing me!!

    Welcome Laura. I'm just going to let you know that the TWW threads are probably better for you, because this thread isn't as active anymore because everyone's had babies and there are of two of us that are just hanging around waiting for our BFPs. I hope your stay in TTC is short!

    Steph and I tried to connect in NH, but the timing didn't work. It's hard when you're riding with a group and trying to get on the same page, but we did text and all is well.

    I ended up riding 2325 miles so I'm really pleased with that. I rode hard yesterday to get home from Manchester, NH, so I'm exhausted. AF also arrived yesterday which sucked. It's hard to enjoy the nice weather when you have cramping. It's still better than being at work, though, so I'm not complaining. Hope you all are well.

    Welcome Laura! Terri is right, its pretty quiet on here now x

    Wow Terri you ride a long way!! Sorry to hear AF got you. What are you doing at the moment? IUI? IVF?

    My month 2 of clomid hasn't gone well, i'm having a major long cycle! I only ovulated on day 29. :( So when i had my tubes checked (all okay) the doc said to up my dose to 100mg next month. Which will make my symptoms worse (hot flashes, nausea, weight gain) but it'll be worth it i hope.

    My other friend just announced she is pregnant. So i now have a friend thats 5 months, one thats 3 months and one thats a month pregnant lol. To be honest today i'm quite okay but i've had really down days.

    I'm doing another IVF at the beginning of next month. Thanks for asking. I'm glad your doc is increasing your dose SJ. Maybe that will be all you need.

    I hear you about up and down days. Same here. I'm on vacation with my family this week and I'm just feeling like I am too old to watch a baby but I still want one! Hope this month is your last and you can join your friends with a bfp!! That would be great. :hugs:
