    @MrsGB2015 Hubby lost all sensation in his legs, was incontinent, lost sensation to his privates. Was diagnosed with Cauda Equina which is an emergency. Was rushed to the spinal unit and prepped for surgery but they cancelled as he was going down. They used his weight as the reason. Kept him in for 6 days for pain management and other things. He’s now on a cocktail of drugs and off work until god knows when. MRI confirmed 3 completely herniated discs and 5 which are degenerating! He’s relatively pain free at the moment but only time will tell. 

    Got the histo results and they confirmed ‘products of conception with no abnormal feature’ ie not molar. I’ve asked for the results of the chromosomal tests and fetal sex so just waiting on that as they didn’t mention it.

    Back to work Monday. Dreading it but need to get it over with.

    Goid luck for Monday x

    I’m finally logged in on my phone!

    @MrsHowgate I hope your hubby gets better soon 

    @MrsGB2015 good luck for tomorrow hun 🤞🏻

    My mum just told me my cousin and his girlfriend are pregnant. It’s been a while since we had a baby bomb and it’s really upset hubby. Especially as my temp has been dropping in the usual way for the last 3 days so AF should be here any minute. I’m so sick of this journey. I’m trying to keep my positive pants on but today feels like one of those days!

    hope everyone is having a nice weekend xx

    Hello ladies! 

    Hope everyone is surviving Monday! 

    So this is the first month I have consistently charted using the Ava and FF and it turns out I ovulate about 3 days after a positive OPK and have a 10 day leutel phase. I’ve always been curious about the second half of my cycle as I get strange symptoms throughout but I’m shocked to find out it so short. It does explain a lot. As I understand it anything 10 days and under is a defect so potentially I’ve just found another issue to add to our ever growing list of fertility problems. I am going to keep charting and tracking and I’m curious to see what happens - in a way it’s always helpful to get a better insight even if the results aren’t the best. Atleast when I finally go back to the doctors I’m going to be armed with information haha

    @MrsGB2015 hope your appointment goes well xx

    @KirBe sorry hun I was meant to come on yesterday and comment on your previous post! 

    Keep tracking and see if that is normal for you before you worry. FC it was an anomaly and isn’t your normal cycle but if it is there are things that can be done, don’t despair! 

    My appointment went well. Scratch wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, was a bit like a smear but a bit more painful but was over quickly!

    we are going to do a natural FET again this time as I much prefer it, just got to wait for CD1 to ring and get my scans booked in xx

    @MrsGB2015 thanks Hun - im definitely going to keep charting and see what happens. I’ve done some research on the worst case scenarios and it’s definitely treatable so I’m not going to get to worried about it at this stage. Honesty charting is the craziest thing - I should have done this years ago! 

    Glad it wasn’t too sore for you hun. Fingers crossed it does the trick - do you have a rough idea when you’ll be looking it (assuming AF behaves herself)?

    @KirBe haha I’ve heard it can really help give you insights and know more about your cycle. Hopefully you’ll get some answers and if it is worst case then you’ll tackle it like the warrior you are! 😘

    Well hopefully we will transfer mid April all being well! 🤞🏼 Xx

    @MrsGB2015 Morning hun! How’re you? 

    Not a lot to report from me AF came and brought concern about my LP but I’m in cycle 2 of constant charting so I’m interested to see what that brings. I’m doing temps only this month, no opks, so hoping it’s fairly accurate. Still ploughing along with weight loss (lost almost 2 stone now) and doing a ton of overtime at work! 

    Hope everyone is okay!

    Hi all
    Not a lot from me either. AF has come and is absolutely killing me. Nobody tells you that the first one after a loss is a total b***h.
    We have the date for the cremation so we’ve got that in a few weeks. Hopefully going to start trying again in June, we shall see.

    @MrsGB2015 any news from your end?

    @KirBe how are you doing?
  • MrsGB2015MrsGB2015 Posts: 3,581 New bride
    Hi Ladies,

    Im ok just waiting AF's arrival so we can get our FET booked in - I think she is due anytime from tomorrow!

    @KirBe Wow well done you on the weight loss thats amazing! Keep going hun, youve got this!! xx

    @MrsHowgate Oh hun, sorry that AF is killing you - kick a girl whilst shes down huh!  xx

    Afternoon ladies!
    I am having a down day today and I’ve got swollen glands. I’m falling apart. Still no let up from AF which is getting me down also. 

    I am starting a grievance against my new line manager tomorrow because I feel he has it in for me and also said having a MC isn’t that bad and I should be fine with it! Not sure what will happen as his manager (my former manager) has already gotten involved last week to diffuse a situation which happened.
  • KirBeKirBe Posts: 1,158 New bride
    Hi Ladies,

    I am having a bit of a rough day. My mum told me this morning that she’s found a lump in her armpit so is being fast tracked to the hospital on Monday. I just can’t help but fear the worst. I know that’s not the attitude but she had some worrying blood results a few months ago (that came to nothing upon further investigation) and now this. My head is all over the place, I’ve been crying at my desk at work, I’m an absolute mess!

    I know there might be nothing to worry about in the end but it has hit me so hard and my mind has gone to the worst case scenario! Sorry ladies I just needed somewhere to vent a bit

    Hope everyone is ok xx

    @MrsGB2015 thanks Hun. It’s hit me so hard and just made me question everything. Fingers crossed it turns out to be nothing serious but we will see what they say on Monday I guess. 

    How are you doing - any sign of AF?

    @MrsGB2015 how exciting! Fingers crossed for your body doing its thing properly 

    I am super anxious today as my mum is currently at the hospital getting checked out. I have put my phone in my bag rather than on my desk but I just can't stop checking it so that is fairly pointless to be honest! I'm thinking just in case it is bad news I would rather read any messages when I feel comfortable rather than being on the phone or something and bursting into tears. Got everything crossed it is good news and absolutely nothing to be worried about though
