The other one was getting WAY too long so I decided one of us needs to start a new thread. So here's to some positive BDing and BFP's!!

 

annmarie - March 31

Brandy, where are you girl? We're getting a little worried about you. Check in please. Regan, those art schools sound wonderful. So sophisticated!! I had a couple more little uterus twinges today but still no spotting or anything so I'm holding out hope. I'm 7dpo so hopefully I won't start spotting or anything this time. This whole cycle is just odd as far as my temps go. I don't know if the HSG is what has things all weird or not. Well, I have a ton of things to do today so I'll be back later.

Yay new thread!!! :) So there is a lot more steps/paperwork involved in becoming an international student than I thought, however my irish pa__sport should make things easier. I got some new opks which i'll start tomorrow which is cd13. according to ff this weekend i should be o-ing so i told dh not to make any plans! LOL...he didn't seem to mind of course...haha. well, i'm going to change and bring the dogs out before i get dinner started. Back later...brandy where are you? XOXO

So are the OPK's any different across the ocean? I'm sure DH doesn't mind a whole weekend full of BDing! haha I can't imagine all the work to be an international student. I know how much it is just to be a regular student. Serious headache!! I sure hope Brandy's ok. She needs to check in. Do you hear that Brandy?! Check in!!! I'll be back later!

hey ann...yes being a student in general is daunting so i have started the process and just taking a quick breather. i got these opks called 'one step' they are basically those simple internet cheapies with the green tips. so a package of 25 was 6 pounds so about 12 us dollars. i also picked up some more preseed as i only had a small sample package. i'm all set....LOL!!!! i am looking into the possibility of some art history cla__ses but i have to see if my canadian university undergrad degree can be taken into consideration instead of the interior design. i have already spent 3 years studying interiors on top of my regular degree and i think i want to do something that i really want for myself. i have always dreamt of studying art history in europe so now that i'm here not taking the opportunity seems so silly. plus when i get pregnant i don't want to be in a program that has tons of stress, compet_tion and travel involved. i simply want to learn, read and enjoy my studies for once in my life!!! :) i'll check back in one more time before i head to bed...XOXO Regan

What is the time difference from here to London? It's currently closing in on 7 pm here. I've always wanted to just take a cla__s for the fun of it. Never seem to get there though. Maybe some day I'll have time when I'm no longer in regular school. I'm hoping to head to get to bed early tonight myself. I have a ton to do tomorrow starting with taking the cat to the vet. Ok Regan, now I need the POAS sponsor in you!!! I've actually been thinking about testing in the next day or two, depending on my temps and symptoms. This cycle has just been so crazy and since it was an HSG cycle, my chances are supposed to be slightly higher. Tomorrow will only be 8dpo but unfortunately I've seen BFP's that early. Ok, I'll get back to my work now.

Hey girls, I'm here and alive. Sorry, it has been crazy around here. Well, we went to the RE/infertility specialist today. Some good, some bad. Basically, we have to wait another 3 months before ttc. Sucks I know, but she was just very concerned that considering everything I have been through, she just did not know if my poor uterus could support another fetus right now. In the mean time, she wants my body to start doing its own thing and have a few cycles (reestablish a normal endometrial lining). She also wants me to lose some more weight (like 40lbs in 12 weeks). I go back in 12 weeks for a in-depth u/s to look at the lining, etc. Everything else she said looked good. My PCOS appears to be very mild if not even questionable. I was really happy to hear that. She felt very certain that we would get pregnant and maintain the pregnancy. PCOS does increase the chance of m/c, but she said considering that we have had one healthy pregnancy, that neutralizes the risk meaning that this m/c was truely just what it was...a m/c and probably not induced by the PCOS (she said that having one healthy pregnancy and a heartbeat visualized on this pregnancy is a huge, positive predictor of future pregnancies). So, she is going to follow me very closely. I will always be followed by them for the PCOS, and I will remain with them through the 1st trimester getting weekly prenatal visits and u/s. That made me feel very good and rea__sured. We are slightly sad that we have to wait 12 weeks, but really we knew that my body needed time to recover. At least this way we are doing it the healthiest way and reducing the risk of another m/c. I really just don't think I could do that again. She also did not feel that we do or will need Clomid. The visit was just very informative, rea__suring, and overall positive. So here is to weight loss. I am starting WW this week. You all have to keep me on the right track. The other news is that I think we are finally getting a SUV. I am sick of getting a 2-year old out of my little car. I think that's it for me. Regan, how's London. Sounds like you are fitting in pretty well. Ann, I am getting so excited to see what the next couple of days hold for you. I'm heading to bed but wanted to update you all. Night girls and love ya, Brandy.

 

annmarie - March 31

Yeah Brandy, you checked in!! That sounds like quite a doctor's appt. That does kinda suck that you have to wait but like you said, it's so much better to wait 12 weeks to a__sure a nice healthy pregnancy than run the risk of another m/c. Regardless, we still want you to hang out with us! I'm so d__n tired and trying to study for a test so I'm downing the coffee which I know is bad. It's only the 1/2 caff stuff and it's not working very well!!! Ok, I'll try to get back to studying. Talk to ya girls tomorrow. XOXO Ann

hi brandy!!! glad to have you back, good to hear you had such a informative doctors visit even though you have to wait it sounds great. ann i have amazing self control when it comes to poas!! LOL. i refuse to do it before af is due, i might have to hijack the royal family's plane and come down there...lol!!! so i have decided on a program & campus. i met with them this morning, at the birbeck school at the university of the arts london. hopefully i will be accepted after my interview which is next wednesday...so nervous!!! the thing is everyone here sounds so sophisticated & intelligent no matter what they say and it can be very intimidating!!! no matter i'm going to do my MA in the history of art, it takes 1 year full time or 2 years part time. i am going to do part time with a few extra courses but i can complete it via correspondence once i return to vancouver. so i have to get my c___p together and prep for the interview. i am also going to volunteer a day per week with a london animal shelter. so i'm going to grab some lunch and get to work! i'll be back later to check in...XOXO

 

annmarie - April 1

Regan, you absolutely amaze me! You do gooder!!! I didn't POAS this morning. I decided it was just way too early and actually managed to not have a problem not testing. I'm really going to try holding out till Friday. AF is expected on Sunday and based on how short my LP has been if I make it till Friday with no AF in site, I'll test. I only have 1 left and am debating on whether or not to get some more. We'll see. Other than that, nothing new here. I'm going to go do some grocery shopping so I'll be back later. XOXO Ann

hey girls...i got my application work all finished!!! so now i'm just studying some of the major art history books and reacquainting myself with the terminology etc in preparation for my interview. tomorrow i will choose a few choice pics from my portfolio and have them printed to submit with my application and transcripts. dh has been really helpful because he said he was impressed by how i just got right into it and he is excited for me to finally get my masters!!! he came home with a new desk lamp and this cool pen for me. :) he's so cute..lol. so i just thought i would drop in to see what's new. that's it for me, gonna take a break and go get a coffee and take my afternoon trip to the dog park. i found a mommy friendly dog park today where there is a paved sheltered area for strollers with tables and benches and small child swings but its connected to a fenced in gra__sy area for the dogs to play!!! very cool...i hope i get to use it soon! :) well i'll check in later tonight, we get to watch american idol now that we have the satellite....yay!!! i'm such a dork...LOL...XOXO Regan

 

babynewbie - April 1

ugh...so i got one of those opks where you're not sure if its positive or negative because its so close. anyway dh came home not feeling so great and well he had some toilet issues after dinner than laid down, he has since thrown up twice. the doctor came by (they make house calls here!) and he has food poisoning!!! i feel bad for him but i am sooooo bummed now! :( i got some ewcm too and cramps so i feel like i'm o-ing right now. i can't force him but i think we might miss it...i feel like crying. anyway i should get back to dh and see if he needs anything and then head to bed myself....i'm so sad....XOXO Regan

 

babynewbie - April 1

i'm still up, his fever is bad, he's aching and not good. he had a seafood buffet for lunch today and obviously something was off. i've calmed down because my last post came off really selfish...the first place my head went was ttc and that's not right. i should think about dh's welfare first. i know i have a right to be upset but i was so disappointed and i don't want him to feel bad...i just want him to feel better. so i'm out this month because he won't be able to bd for the next couple of days. so not much i can do but care for him and use some time to get accustomed to my new life and surroundings....love you girls..XO

 

babynewbie - April 1

dh is finally asleep, mainly because of the anti-nausea meds the doc gave him. i am having a gla__s of wine because..well why not? :) what's meant to be will be so that's that. i'm outside in the garden, i've never even been out here yet, its quite lovely but a little chilly. so onto the next cycle for me. maybe i'll use the next few weeks to explore my new city, lose some more weight and do a little more travel? i'm trying to find the positives here girls but its hard....i am asking god to see me for someone who wants this and who has so much love to give. i am praying for strength to understand why others get to have babies when they don't want them. i do not make it to church every sunday but i do not sin and i make an effort everyday to be the best person i can be so I find it difficult to have faith sometimes. i know he has a plan for me i just wish i knew what it was..LOL! :) anyway thanks for listening to my rants, i don't know what i would do without you to vent to!!!! XOXOXOXOXO

 

annmarie - April 1

Ah Regan, (((Hugs))) to you. I know that's extremely hard. It was a month or two ago that my DH was sick during O time too. It is very depressing to just consider yourself out. But like you said, we can't force them. After all, BDing is the LAST thing I want when I'm sick. While I was shopping today I found myself feeling really angry and hateful. First, I walked through the baby section at Wal-mart which is depressing enough. But then I kept seeing all these cute happy pregnant people. I couldn't help but look at them with such anger. I'm hoping it's perfectly normal for us to feel this way and have these ups and downs. I've had some very minor crampy twinges off and on today which I'm sure didn't help my state of mind. On a more positive note, if it's truly food poisoning that DH has, he should be better in about 24 hours. Hopefully he gets that lucky. At any rate, I'll be thinking about you dear! Brandy, how are things going for you? I gotta head to bed so I can get up bright and early for work. Have a good night girls! XOXO Ann

Hey girls, you all have been busy today. I'm just now getting to wind down. I've become addicted to Bravo's New York City Housewives....so bad ;) Regan, I completely understand. We also had a month like that. It is so depressing, but I agree with Ann. It should be over in 24 hours if it is truly food poisoning. Maybe he will recover by being a raging s_xaholic...haha. Hang in there girl. Ann, I know exactly what you are saying. You guys just do not even know how many times I have asked "why" lately. Its hard not to. I want you guys to get pregnant so badly. I truly believe it will happen, but I hope sooner than later. As for me, I feel some type of peace in knowing I have to take a 12 week break. Sounds crazy doesn't it? It is almost as if someone has given me permission to "just be and heal". One of my collegues today said that I just had some look about me that was very hopeful and peaceful. I'm not trying to sound corny, but I really just needed this time before gearing up again. Time to focus on me. It's been a long year. That was one positive to yesterday...everyone in the office was in the same boat and there were not extremely pregnant women about ready to bust. That was nice. Anyways, please hang in there you two. I sincerely believe that we will all get pregnant. One thing I am coming to understand (quickly) is that we do not understand the ultimate plan, we can only wait to see what it is. Have a good night girls! I'm so glad to have met you all and that we're here for each other.

Oh yeah, BTW, I got my new SUV....................YEAH:) I will be able to go pick it up this weekend in Nashville, TN. I am so excited. You know, I deserve it after the rough road we have had.
