Like sands through the hourglass.... :-)

Julie.... I think a chat site would be great... with pa__s word to post/read messages ... as it is a public forum here it is kinda sending out personal imformation on the www ... I think the reason this little group works well (and it is a neat little group... though i think a couple extra gals would be good to keep it flowing when computers go down, people go on holidays etc....).... The reason it works well to have virtual friends is that in reality we will probably never meet... as compared to your real life friends who you cant tell everything to... can you imagine hubby finding out you have told his best friend's wife his 'swimmers are a bit slow' or what ever!!!! I can stick an email link on my webpage at some time in the future if your hubby can set it up.... :-)

Enail, I don't think anyone here tried to ignore you... speaking for myself, after reading some of our long posts I forget all the stuff I want to write about... and with the steady group it is easier to remember what's going on... I am sorry you feel left out, that's not what we are about. Please join in.... Girls, I had to open up two widows to respond... insane... I think it would be great to get away from the forum...... it would be nice to get (even) more personal. Julie, may the (baby) force be with you....!! Lily: after m/c I had three times when I thought i was ovulating... lots of cm. It took 5 weeks to get af again. First af was normal.. less symptoms.. not really uncomfortable. I have to say that bbs are not sore at all... they used to hurt before m/c. This time again no sore bbs but lots of cramping. I don''t feel I am pregnant but I guess time will tell... The house is really becoming nice. The bathroom downstairs is finished and the kitchen is being put togheter. Bad thing about buying an Ikea kitchen is that you have to put it togheter and install it yourself. But it is starting to look real good... Mil is flying in next week. Asked me for a list with things to bring... can't think of anything. That's so stupid, there's always stuff I need and then she comes over and I can't remember. Well, the kids want mac and cheese.!! Oh and poptarts would be good too...! Comd to think of it I want so much , it is impossible to ask all that...! It doesn't matter, she is coming over to help with the move. Take the kids out of our hands... THey will have a week off in May. Kris, haven't checked out your site yet. We should have a website pretty soon too... Dh is in IT and it's shamefull to see we don't have a site yet. Well girls, I am at work.... and need to go do something now. Or at least look busy!!! Lol...

Okay.. can't talk long but will be back in a few hours. Instead of creating a website that cost money... why don't we set up a yahoo group. It is pa__sword protected and really easy to use -- you can post pictures, there is a database, you can start info pages. I have two groups - baby group and bookclub - that uses this site. What is also great about it is that you can send out an email to the "name of the group" and it posts to the site and sends an email. It is a lot less work... ~ Petra, I am thinking you are right and it is just pms. I think you hormones go through a lot of weird stuff. Anyway, I am just going to wait a few weeks and see what happens. ~ Okay.. let me know if you are interested in setting up the yahoo acct. Julie, if you want to set up the chat site... go ahead, I just thought it would be nice to have a FREE site (oh.. I am very cheap sometimes ;). I can set it up or you can... Let me know.. ~Talk to you guys in a few hours. I hope it is a beautiful day for everyone... we all need that mental day!

morning, ladies! I felt like such a cad all night (slept like c___p!) 'cause I had hurt enail's feelings . . . ugh. However, I much rather someone tell me when I hurt his or her feelings so that things get worked out right away . . . once I had a friend who held something inside for 3 YEARS and then finally told me it had been bothering her all that time . . . that was horrible because what should have been easy to clear up with a heartfelt apology (I didn't even know I had hurt her feelings) became this huge thing for her and almost ended our friendship. Come to think of it, it's never been the same since! Anyway, enail, I'm glad you fessed up that you were upset (and sorry again, one last time!). ~~ Lily, the yahoo group sounds fine to me. I had forgotten about those . . . I think I used to be on one for some committee at school and I do remember that it was pa__sword protected and only approved members could sign up. So, if you want to set it up, that'd be great! (I have no idea how to do it!). ~~ Really, the main thing for me isn't about excluding people who want to participate - it's about sending out too much personal information completely open to anyone on the net. So, I guess it is about privacy . . . but I just thought that we have been using this forum for more than it was intended . . . and as a consequence we all try to balance sharing info with remembering that we're telling anyone who stumbles across this thread a lot of intimate info . . . for me personally, I'm guarded because I teach university and if my students (who are 18-25 years old and may very well have a m/c and look for support on the internet) figured out who I was . . . well, let's just say they don't need to know when I'm ovulating!! :) ~~ I would just feel a bit more protected going to a more private forum. ~~ Kris, first, I love the reindeer horns. If your pic would have been you in a suit with a lace collar . . . well, that just wouldn't have matched your personality for me! ~~ Petra, I know what you're saying about putting the kitchen together . . . we did all our cabinets, too. But it looks great! I love it everyday (especially as our old kitchen really, really sucked!) What cabinets did you get? We got the natural birch . . . About af, I guess I would trust your instincts about your body. If you feel af coming on, then you may be right. . . :( ~~ Lily, seems like you've got another week or two before af . . . but you never got your hcg levels tested again, did you? If I were you, I'd wait another couple weeks and then if af doesn't show, take a hpt just to see. Probably, though, you're jst processing hormones from the pregnancy. Af came for me at 5 1/2 weeks and I know the 7-10 days preceeding I had all kinds of symptoms and freaky hormones! ~~ Tara-T, your posts on "to kris aka mulgjill" were cracking me up - not because they weren't heartfelt, but because they were! You sounded just like me - neurotic that I had hurt someone! Gosh, I felt terrible. Anyway, yes I think Kris's pic is great! It was really fun to put a face with the name (even if I'm still saying Kris-mulgajill in my head!). ~~ Oh, and mulgajill, you're probably right. Chances are, we won't ever meet in person . . . but it's fun to think that maybe someday, just maybe, we will. And who knows, maybe we actually will! ~~ Wow, I'm proud of myself. I just now remembered that I'm waiting . . . (good sign that I'm not obsessing too much . . . yet.) Although this morning I did feel to see if my bbs were sore :). And since last night I have had a pain in my lower right side . . . last night I was already thinking ectopic . . . ugh, I'm hopeless! xx

I will admit that I have only had time to skim these posts this morning--have a few morning meetings at work I must tend to. Thank you for your sweet words and support--Julie, please don't lose sleep over it! I am not someone who holds things in (as my husband will attest) and honestly, not to blame things on hormones, but I have been ultra-sensitive lately. I even cried after my daughter's school-friend's mom made a comment about how my life was easy because I only had one child. she did not say it to be hurtful, but I felt badly afterward. All this to say, I am taking things more personally than I should these days. I will check in later---oh and kris, I understand about why you would keep mulgajill in the other forum, it does get a bit fruity at times. Thank you again to all--SORRY for the worry Julie!!

 

Lily - April 12

Okay... I think I have about 4 minutes.. my child is currently preoccupied (i.e. destroying) my calculator. I need everyone's email addresses (enail this includes you ;)). I will set up the yahoo group tonight. You will get an invitation via email to join the group. You then go set up pa__sword, login, etc. I need one other thing before I set up the group -- we need a name. Any ideas? This will be a name that we put for addresses on all our emails (unless you go to the site to post info...). We can post pictures of our family and contact information -- it will be fun to actually be able to know what everyone looks like... like I already feel like I know Kris so much better now! Weird, huh? ~Anyway, my time is running out.. he is going after the computer wires. Oh... the email you receive will say that Aimee has sent you an invitation... go with it.. I will explain later. ~ hugs.. send email and name suggestion by tonight... ~ have a great day!

 

Tara-T - April 12

Okay Lily: I created an email account escpecially for this: (anyone else can go to hotmail and get a free email account so that your private account isn't bombarded with spam). Here it is: [email protected] I'm only keeping this account for you guys and anyone else on the forum who wants to chat about baby stuff. Feel free to email me.....cheers

 

Julie - April 12

Lily, thanks for setting this up! Actually, if Tara-T doesn't mind, we can all email her at her new email (you, too, Lily). Then, she can forward you the addresses (that way, we don't all have to put our email addresses up or get new ones - mine has my full name and is the email my students use . . . so I'd rather do it below radar if Tara-T doesn't mind the extra forward . . . oh, and Kat's in, too, I can forward her email to Tara-T). As for a name, how about . . . "Brash Hussies"? (Tara-T called us that and I thought it was funny!) or we could go with something very formal: "International Women's Forum" :-) yes, I'm an academician! Or, just something descriptive like "Pregnancy Support Group". Personally, my vote is for "Brash Hussies". xx

 

Petra - April 12

Same here... my new hotmail account is [email protected] this is not my regular mail account. Like Tara said, for now I really don't want too much spam... Julie, we did look at the Birch because our furniture is also Birch wood... but we decided to go with the Askerum. That light grey and it is like a wash... it shows the wood thru... it is really nice. It goes with the tiles on the floor. Well, soon y'all see my pictures... That's all for now, just wanted to het the email address in there. Talk to you girls tomorrow...

 

Petra - April 12

Good name... I like it. I should have thought about sending my email address to Tara. Good thinking Julie.

 

Tara-T - April 12

I'm fine with everyone using my email address...I can forward them to Lily tonight or when I they come in. Lily SEND ME THE INFO: Kat: got yours from Julie. Cheers

 

enail - April 12

I have set up a hotmail account just for this as well. [email protected] Really don't have much time today to write---Kris, I did see your website, very cute!

 

Julie - April 12

Petra, just tried to email you a hello message and got an error message . . . I'll try again later!

 

kris - April 12

Hi all and good morning.... i will put my email in, it is my bodgy yahoo one (actually i think i have kat as my name on it.. lol)... Dh phoned last night... his dad is still pretty bad, conversation went ok until he mentioned he had seen one of the men that used to work for him a couple years back. Was there because wife was having baby and asked him when he is having one.... Gee... i felt just awful... i have been lucky i guess in that i haven't any friends or aquaintances getting pregnant under my nose so this is the first time i have had this sinking feeling.... I am going to have a look in the ikea cataloge to take my mind off it... perhaps we can post photos of our kitchens... mine is the kitchen from hell... about 2 inches of bench space.... And it will be a great thing to have a yahoo group.... too much imfo on the net is not good ... Weather is great here again (trust me it is not normal for melbourne, it is usually c___ppy one day, worse the next), so will get a heap of washing done. Julie, you will have trouble knowing if you are pregnant or not because you will get signs regardless (from the hcg) so it is going to be a bit torturous. This is the waiting group.... waiting to get positive preg test.... waiting for period to come.... waiting for ovulation..... waiting for doctor appointments... waiting for clomid to take effect... hopefully within the next twelve months we will be waiting for labor to come!!! I am going to stick with it for awhile... i have no trouble with the conception, just gotta wait for ONE good egg to come along and i have found it much easier to cope by NOT discussing it with dh and having you gals here.... Will write a bit more later.... gotta check a couple other posts and re-read these ones... then get my b___t off this computer chair... :-) [email protected]

 

julie - April 12

i think the hcg was too small to give me pregnancies signs . . . too small, evidently, to interfere with a pregnancy test in 14 days . . . 12 now! And I took the hcg 2 days ago, so you'd think if it was going to effect me, it would have already. ~~ Kris, try not to feel too badly about the comment . . . people are asking me ALL the time: So, when are you guys having kids? Better not wait too long! Are you guys just going to have dogs? . . . yes, dogs that bite people who ask stupid questions! ~~ night all. Will post again tomorrow . . . or switch to yahoo group if it's up.

 

julie - April 12

oops, hcg was 3 days ago. I start the prog tonight . . . hope it does me good like you, Kris! hope your pop-in-law-to-be takes a turn for the better soon . . . and dh returns safe and sound.
