Hi all, sorry I have been so absent yet again. I just don't realise how fast time goes, before you know it another week has gone by! Jules you will have all this to look forward to soon! How exciting that bubs is now engaged :) can't wait to hear the good news that baby has arrived safe and well.
Debbie, goodness I bet you can't wish the time away fast enough?? Hope you have a fab time visiting Dp. I love London, mainly for the shopping but it's such a wonderful city. I hope the next couple of weeks go fast for you so that Dp can come home and you can get your BFP :)
Welcome magnes, only 2 more sleeps til test day. I have every thing crossed for you. Jules is a very wise woman so listen to her advice :) your symptoms sound pretty normal. Some women have none and others have a lot so try not to worry too much.
Well I'm off cus Chloe is moaning for her feed! I will try and pop back on soon. Jules if I don't speak to you before good luck and I hope you have a fast delivery. All my love :) XxX
Good morning ladies and welcome on board Mages.
Well i am back from my travels. Had a brilliant weekend in london. City was buzzing!! Great atmosphere. Crammed so much into the few days. :) it was absolutely brilliant to see martin. He was off fri and monday so was great to spend that time with him and he stayed with us at a friends house at night. Yesterday was very hard saying goodbye but we r half way there. He has been told that nder no circumstances is he allowed to go away again lol! Caitln started a wee summer scheme today for 2weeks so really going to take it easy in advance of transfer next tues :) have hospital appointment on fri for a scan so hopefully everything is going according to plan.
I hope you are all well. How's things with you Jules?any developments? Hope u are getting your days punched in alright.
Emma how are your two litte angels doing. Has Kieran got a summer scheme to go to?they are great. The summer can be long for them. Caitlin has a few trips as part of it so she is excited about goin to it.
Lizzy haven't seen you on for a while. Hope all is going well for you and you are taking it easy.
Mages, good for you holding out to test on your proper date. I couldn't and cheated and did test 3days early. Nearly there though so hang in there. good luck and thinking of you in my prayers do
Well there goes my rest. Father in law has just phoned to say he is calling down :( anyway chat soon xo
Debbie, you sound like you had a whale of time! I can imagine the capital is great place to be at the moment, with everything going on. Did you bump into any famous Olympians while you were there?
Like you said, you are halfway through the four weeks now and on the downhill stretch before Martin comes home. That will truly be something to celebrate! Hope there will be some more good news around then too! Good luck for your scan on Fri. Let us know how it goes...
The playscheme for Caitlin sounds great fun. I would have loved that when I was little, Emma, how are you finding the summer hols? Some of my friends seem to despair when it gets to the six-week break, but from your messages, it sounds as though you are coping like a pro. Have you got any plans for the rest of the holidays? Are you going away at all?
Well, TOMORROW is my due date, but I'm feeling nothing significant. I get the odd bit of backache or a random twinge, but not enough to make me believe that anything is actually happening. All week I've been waking up wondering if today's the day, but I quickly come to the conclusion that it isn't because I don't feel any different. Debbie, Emma, help me! Did you know on the day that labour was going to start or does it kinda creep up on you??
Mages, tomorrow is a big day for you too! Am I right in thinking that you are about 7 hours ahead of us in Singapore - so by the time you read this you may be testing :) The fact that this cycle seems to be working out differently from the last is really hopeful. Just want you to know I am thinking of you and praying you won't be too nervous. I'm hoping with all my heart you get the result you so desperately want.
Anyway, I need to go do some of my relaxation exercises, just in case Bean does decide to put in an appearance and they are needed!
Will log on again tomorrow Mages to see how you got on.
Hi jules just a quick post to answer your question. Caitlin arrived 3 weeks early so i wasn't expecting it and therefore when it happened i was definitely in denial. My waters started to break about 5am butt only as a trickle then i had period like cramp which got worse over the next few hours. Rang hospital and they told me to come over and by 8am i was 4cm. With the help from some gas and air our beautiful little angel arrived at 12.28 pm. the best moment of our lives. just hope and pray jules that ur little bean arrives as quick as Caitlin did. good luck. thinking of you xo
Thank you so much Debbie for your encouragement and advice. It was lovely to hear such a positive story :) Yesterday - my due date - was a shocking day. Although I wasn't really expecting him to arrive I felt so on edge all day. Strangely now my due date is past I feel a whole lot more relaxed and ready to accept that he'll come when he's ready. I had an appointment with the obstetrician this morning, and they are willing to wait for a while to give labour a chance to start naturally before booking an induction (which I really want to avoid). They suggested a sweep next week if necessary and we'll take it from there.
Mages, no news from you yet...can't work out if that's good or bad. Still thinking of you and hope you are doing ok...
i did fresh bleeding on 31/7/2012 and i knew in my deep heart that it is all over, i just went for formality to do my pregnancy test and it was negative.
after i am in the depression stage .
i told myself that i am not fit to carry my own child as i am barren.
i am basically a very anxious person , i get anxious about every little things. so the long journey ended so sorrowfully.
anyway i am turninig 38 and i don have much hope .
thanks for talking to me . but i would like your friend ship..

Hi girls, I am typing this on my phone with one hand, while I have a baby in the other! Jacob Benjamin was born on 4th August at 1.54pm, weighing a perfect 7lb :) He is absolutely amazing, and on the whole he's a really chilled little man - though he does like his night feeds, so mummy is knackered!
I feel a little sad sharing this good news in the light of your post Mages. Have you definitely decided this is your last try? I know how hard it is when it doesn't work out, so please let me know if there is anything I can say or do to help. It would be lovely to stay in touch. I have tried looking up that ID on F B but couldn't find you...am I looking in the wrong place?
Emma, Debbie, how are you? I'm thinking of you Debbie as you go for ET today. How are you feeling honey? I am hoping so much that you have some strong embies to go back in. Keep us posted!
Emma, haven't heard from you in a while, but I know what you mean about busy!
Anyway girls, I need to try to get some sleep while little man is quiet, but you are still all on my mind...
Jules that is absolutely brilliant news. A big CONGRATULATIONS to you and dp :) I had been checking in and saw that you hadn't posted in a few days so was expecting to hear your great news soon. Jacob Benjamin is a very strong name (just like his mummy) Love it! Hope the delivery went well and you are both getting over it ok. How is dp? Doting daddy I suppose :) Bumped into a girl who i went to school with today who was also going through IVF and she informed that she is 6 weeks pregnant. Another very successful story. Just hope i can join you very soon. Had two little embies transplanted today so fingers crossed.
So sorry to hear your news Mages. My thoughts and prayers are with you and dp at this very difficult time. Believe me I know how hard it is but I do hope that like me you can pull yourself back up from this and try again in the future. xoxo
CONGRATULATIONS JULES :D Go you! So glad to hear everything turned out great and that little benjamin had a safe arrival. What an absolutely fab name :) I hate to inform you but the tiredness and lack of time for yourself doesnt get any better anytime soon but make the most of it cus you'll blink and it will of gone within a second! I've realised this time round just how much I wished things to come along with Kieran but this time I'm savouring every moment. I am so pleased everything is going well for you hun. Don't be a stranger but I won't be expecting any posts off you too soon. Sending you, dp and little banjamin lots of love :)
Debbie, Crikey et already!! Are you feeling optimistic this time? I know last time round you said you wasn't. Have you been given a test date? Here we go, all the questions start again, lol. Hope your feeling good hun.
Magnes, I'm so so sorry to hear your sad news :( I too, like the other girls, hope you find the strength within yourself to give it another go. This life can be so cruel at times. I'm sending you lots of love chick and know that we are always here to rant to.
Well I've had a rather poop week, Chloe has started waking in the night again, my tiredness ended up in me being cranky and me and dp having a massive row over literally nothing! All is well now though. I also had bad news from my mom on saturday too.... She hasn't been well for as far as I can remember and has been going to hospital appointments more than I have hot dinners! She went last week and they told her that they don't expect her to make it another 5 years :'( they have told us this before and then changed their mind a few years down the line, even so it does make it any easier any time we get told it. I'm not extremely close to my mom but it's still upsetting. I can only hope that they change their minds again. Well that's enough rambling for me, chloes stirring.
Hi Emma, sorry to hear about ur mum. hopefully they have got it wrong again and u never know this horrible situation might even bring u both closer. I agree with u about the tiredness. It never really leaves u and ur time is not ur own anymore but all in a very positive and rewarding way.
yes ET day has finally arrived and gone.Not sure how i feel about it all. Am afraid to get my hopes built up because i know how bad the fall can be but at the same time am trying to b optimistic. Know i am going to analyze every little thing over the next two weeks... like now.. feeling a bit yucky and putting 2 &2 together to get 10 knowing that it is very very early for any signs but can't stop my mind wondering. Roll on the 21nd august.
