I’m so sorry about the awful AF Mrs Pope, I hope it’s a
little better today.
Sammykate – Good luck with the testing, it’s good that hubby
can get the trip out of the way first
OmRum – I don’t know if it helps but with mine I get
two/three days of awful cramps and heavy bleeding and then it starts to get
lighter and then spotting for day five and sometimes a sixth day.
I’m glad your blood results have come back normal, I’m sorry it’s such a wait
for the ultrasound. I hope you get your BFP first.
I hope you’re feeling better Mrs R. Hope you have a lovely
Good luck with the BDing Mrs M, that defo looks like a
surge. Fingers crossed for you.
I hope you’re managing to keep distracted through the tww
Tallie. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
Dandelion – I don’t think unknown location always leads to
ectopic, but my HCG started going up by small amounts and even when it started decreasing
they said my progesterone was still quite high which is why it indicating a
possible ectopic. I am thankful that it didn’t get to that.
NK cells seems to be quite a controversial theory at the
moment but to me it makes sense and I feel could be relevant to me. I’ve put a
couple of links as I find it quite hard to explain what they are.
Thank you all for your support. I’m feeling a lot better and
me and my hubby had such a lovely day yesterday, I booked a driving experience
as a wedding present so he got to drive a Lamborghini and an Aston Martin which
he absolutely loved and then we went to Bicester for some retail therapy. It
was the first day in a long time where we just felt like ourselves and enjoyed
our time together. I feel ready to stop feeling sorry for myself and keep going
on this rollercoaster of a journey.
I’ve been planning our trip for May half term, so hopefully
we can get it booked up. We’re going to do Rome for three days and then get a
train to Venice for a couple of days. The research has really helped to
distract me this week.
We've had confirmation that our referral was finally sent on Wednesday afternoon so hopefully we will hear soon
Thank you Dandelion maybe I just didn't ov yet. Made hubs BD last night when he was knackered after getting back from his trip so he won't be pleased if that's the case lol.
Sorry another OPK question- the instructions leaflet that came with them says to hold your pee for 4yrs before testing, and also to not drink many fluids. So I can't drink and I can't pee?! Do you girls stick to this? I've been trying but I can't manage 4hrs!
SammyKate - I always test first thing and then will test once I'm home from work after not going wee for about 1.5 to 2 hours. This tends to be ok for me and I've had pretty accurate results I think! Im soooo excited for GOT, my husband has already seen a spoiler - people who post them on fb are just so rude! So so jealous of your Florida trip, I have always wanted to go and it's top of my to do list for big holidays!
Dandelion that doesn't sound like AF to me, have you tested/will you just in case? You must be 13/14 dpo now? I really hope that it could have been heavy implantation or something! Happy to hear all your fish made it, are they coy or tank fish?
I'm glad AF has left MrsPope, are you going to ntnp this month? I hope your husbands appointment goes well, I think men find these things actually more daunting than us women!
Hannah your Italy trip sounds AMAZING! Italy is in my top 5 favourite countries and I absolutely love both Rome and Venice! My one tip is to buy the queue jump tickets for the Vatican, the queues were hours when we went in early June a few years back. Also the Colosseum had the shortest queues in the afternoon a few hours before it closes
Tallie happy to have a cycle buddy! I am not confident at all this month though and tbh if AF arrives I am looking forward to a busy weekend of wine, gin & tonics and espresso martinis! I hope AF doesn't arrive for you though, when will you test if it doesn't turn up?
I ordered another pack of FRER off amazon over the weekend as they were only £5.25 for 2! I honestly have so many pregnancy tests but never use them because AF always arrives dead on time! Haha
This week is going to be BUSY at work, I do feel like stress may be a reason why it's taking a bit longer to get pregnant! Unfortunately unless I quit there is just nothing I can do about it and although my husband would be happy if I did we would only scrape by and wouldn't be able to afford a baby
Thanks for the advice, the instructions said not to use your first morning urine, but surely that is the most 'concentrated'?! I will try that and then one in the afternoon.
If I watch the first episode of GoT without my hubby am I a terrible wife?! Lol
What did everyone think of GoT? I loved the episode even though not a whole lot happened!
Tallie I'm sorry you're appointment left you feeling disappointed, do you know if there are any walk in blood clinics near you that you could get in to quicker than the GP appointment?
12 dpo for me and I'm getting my usual pre-AF heaviness so expect her tomorrow/Thursday so right on time as always
Mrs PB –
Wow that’s amazing, good luck with the marathon.
best for Ov Om Rum
Mrs R –
I’m sorry it feels like AF is impending, I will still keep my fingers crossed
for you. Thank you for the Italy tips, I will defo take note of those.
I’m so sorry that the doctor wasn’t what you hoped. It’s such a shame that it
really depends on who you get, some are so cold and unfeeling and that often
makes me feel worse. It sucks that you have to wait for the blood test. I hope
the next couple of weeks go fast for you
Mrs M –
I hope the SMEP is still going okay. Finger crossed you Ov soon
you doing Dandelion? I’ve been thinking about you. I really hope AF hasn’t
things are going okay Sammykate
you are okay Mrs Pope
