Have had a fairly good day today. Connor went to spend some time with my Nan & Grandad today, so I got some much needed time to myself. I read a bit of my Harry Potter book and gave the place a damn good clean as I have let it slide recently.
I was quite ecxited by my temp today, which went from 36.7 yesterday to 36.3 this am. I hope that this means that O is imminent (sp?). I also had a nice big glob of EWCM last night as well. I guess that it will be really hard to tell until AF shows. Going from my previous cycles, I usually O at around cd 18/19/20.
As for the rest of my life, I made an appointment to see the nurse to get bloodwork done to test for anaemia and am going to ask to have hcg run as well to see where I am. I am also starting to get a bit worried about some pain that I have in my left hip. I get the pain when I stand up after I have been sat down for a while. I can't remember when it started, but I have certainly noticed it since the RTA we were in last year. I think I am going to see the GP and get it checked out as arthritis runs in the family.
Teresa: It's good to see an update in your journal. I've had a look at your chart and it looks fantastic. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this is it for you. I am glad to see that James is doing well. I must have missed all the info on the table, but if it works for you, I may just have to entice DH onto our kitchen table!
Nicky: I hope that your interview goes well tomorrow and I'm glad that AF has finally left, now if you can just point her in the direction of the UK, that way she may also leave Theresa alone.
Dayna: I don't think that the friends thing sounds weird. I can totally appreciate you wanting to experience the whole thing first hand. I am pretty sure that if I couln't have any more, that it would be just DH, me and DS> Maybe I feel different as i have one already?? Keep your chin up, it will happen for you, I am sure of it.
Lisa: Good news on the temp jump and am glad to hear that your headache has gone. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.
Here's a ton of baby dust for all of you (make sure you catch it!!)
CD...............Er.......hang on a minute, while I check........20!!!
Ok, mentally I feel fine, physically I feel like ****!! Mark had some head cold thingy last week and just as I thought that I got away with it, I came down with it as well!! Only I swear that I feel worse than he did, mainly because he took all the cold stuff in the house and hasn't bought any more!
On the TTC front, there is no news as we obviously aren't trying this cycle, but we did manage to get some practice in this morning . lmao!!
As for the rest of me (I feel like a real hypochondriac at the minute!!) I went for my x-ray on my hip on Friday, but the results won't be in until the 8th or 9th (the 9th Sept was a year to the day of the RTA, spooky or what??). I am due to see the nurse tomorrow for some blood tests to check my HB and HCG levels. Connor is due to see the paed dr at the hospital on thursday, even though he has been well for months.
I think that I am also going to return to work tomorrow, although by the time I have been to the nurse, I will only end up going for about 2 hours, but hey, I have to catch up sometime. I am not dreading it like I was when I thought that I had to go back last week. I guess that I am just more at peace with what happened.
Dayna: I hope that you are having a good long weekend and that you are getting lots of practice in. Go catch that eggy!!
Nicky: Sorry to hear that you had to work Saturday, hope it wasn't too bad. How was the wedding?? I hope that the rest of your weekend is going better and that you are getting some B'ding in between all that food on a stick!!
Lisa: How are you holding up in the 2ww?? I hope that you are not driving yourself made with symptom spotting (I am the queen of that!!) I've got my fingers crossed for you.
Theresa: Hope that this is your month, you deserve it. Fingers crossed and much babydust winging it's way to you.
Obviously nothing happening on the TTC front! Although I have still been temping because I want to be able to see what is going on with my cycle, but to be honest my temps are all over the place, they dropped from 36.8 to 36.3 thim morning, although to give myself some credit, I did get up nearly 2 hours earlier than normal as I had to go to work.
I finally went back to work yesterday. I wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I finally got to work at 11am after my appt with the nurse and left at 1am cos that's what time I work till!! It took me practically the whole 2 hours to read all my emails!! Did a normal work day today (8 till 1) and it was ok, just getting my head down and trying to get some work done, although after about 2 hours my concentration was completely gone. I guess that I shouldn't expect too much from myself yet.
I went to the nurse yesterday to have my bloods done for iron levels as am always tired at the moment. I was absolutely devastated when she asked me if I was there to have my antenatal bloods done When I told her that I miscarried, she couldn't stop apologising and said that there was no mention of it my notes, which I was totally shocked about as I took the note from the hospital to the dr as soon as I was allowed home and I have seen the dr twice since. I always said my Dr was a pile of ****.
Teresa: Sorry to see that your temps are going down, Ive still got my fingers crossed for you.
Lisa: Well done on the dog show. I have my fingers crossed for you, not long to wait now.
Nicky: I hope that you manage to get some practice in this week
I feel really terrible about not updating my journal for nearly 2 weeks, but to be honest I have been quite busy with work and stuff. Returning to work wasn't as bad as I had expected, but I am really glad that I reduced my hours, 5 hours a day is more than enough at the moment, plus it's nice to be home in time to put Connor down for his nap.
Mark & I have also been sick this week, we both ended up with some kind of stomach bug that is doing the rounds. Mark was very bad, I just felt iffy and Connor just looked out of sorts, at least we all got it out of the way before our holidays!
I have also been totally engrossed in Harry Potter, and have read the last 3 books in the last few weeks, so now that I have finished reading them all, I have time on my hands to do things, like update my journal!!!
Today is our second wedding anniversary, and it is such a beautiful day here, the sun is shining, there isn't a cloud in the sky and it is quite warm for this time of the year. It is totally different weather from the day we got married, where it rained most of the day, although it did stop while I went from the car to the county court house, and back into the car again. It started raining again just as we finished taking photo's! We don't really have anything planned for today as Mark is at work all day, but maybe we will go to the pub for a drink after dinner, and let connor play in the play area (gone are the days where we could sit and gaze into each others eyes for hours on end, but I don't regret being a parent one bit, some things are worth the sacrifice!!) Maybe we will even get some practice in.
Theresa: That sounds like fantastic news about James, it sounds like he is an absolute gem, you are both very lucky to have each other.
Dayna: Sorry to hear the AF got you, but I like your positive attitude, and I hope that you do get pregnant before the end of summer, you deserve it.
Lisa: Your dh sounds like a star.
Nicky: Hope that you are having fun at the wedding, glad to hear that you got some practice in
I never though that I would be so glad to see AF in my entire life. I am just so excited to be back in the game. Hopefully it won't take me too long to get my prize! At least the old witch ( ) had the decency to not show up on my wedding anniversary!
Mark & I had a lovely meal out last night. The pub that we went to was on the top of a hill, so we sat at the highest point and watched the sun go down as Connor played on the climbing frame. That moment just seemed perfect. We didn't get to bd, as we were too full!! We weren't really that bothered, because now that we are back to ttc, there will be plenty of opportunity to bd, especially with us being on holiday. Only 11 more days to go!! I hope that we can bring back more than a few souvenirs for the family
Dayna: Being in a good mood is really contagious. Just reading your happy post made me smile. I hope that AF leaves both of our houses soon, and may it be the last time that either of us see's her for 9 or so months!
I hope that the rest of you are enjoying your weekends.
Love and babydust to all.
I'm not too good at keeping this journal up to date, but to be honest, my life is fairly boring at the moment, so there isn't much to write about. It seems so weird to think that I do the same things week in, week out. At least thgis holiday is giving me something exciting to look foward to.
AF has finally cleared out (I think). I thought that she had cleared out the other day, only to find her back again, even if it was only for the day, shocked the hell out of me! I guess I can't expect everytthing to go back to normal after everything that my body has been through in the last few months. Mark and I haven't got any practice in yet this month, not that I blame him for not trying. I haven't been shaving my legs recently as I want to wax them before the we go away, and now I feel that I resemble a bit of a gorilla!! Not an image that congures romantic thoughts! Perhaps if I blindfold him.............!!!!
We went to the Zoo yesterday with most of Dh's family to celebrate MIL's 60th birthday (she's 60 on wednesday). It was quite a nice day out. the weather was beautiful for this time of year, sunny and warm. The kids all had a fantastic time, they don't see each other very often, so a great day was had by all.
Not much else to report on the TTC front. I doubt that I will ovulate until sometime between CD 18/23.
I guess that I should get off this damn computer and go do some housework
Theresa: I'm sorry to hear that you have had a rotten couple of days. I really hope that things start to look up for you soon. Remember that we all love you here.
Dayna: I hope that the wedding went well yeterday and that your team won! I'm really glad that you feel good about this month, your positive attitude will hopefully rub off on me!
Nicky: I'm sorry that AF got you. hopefully we will all graduate this month. Your friends daughter sounds like a real sweetheart, very cute.
Lisa: Hope that you had a good time at the army dinner and glad to hear that you weren't hit hard by the waether. Go get that egg!!!
Have to go and feed my monster now before he really starts moaning.
Good luck and babydust to all.
We're all going on a summer holiday
no more for a week or two.
Fun and on our summer holiday,
no more worries for me or you,
for a week or two.
We're going where the shines brightly
we're going where the sea is blue.
we've all seen it in the broucher,
now let's see if it's true.
Everybody has a summer holiday
doin' things they always wanted to
So we're going on a summer holiday,
to make our dreams (of a ) come true
for me and you.
for me and you. (and Connor, ofcourse! )
Sorry about that, I just had to get it out of my system as that song has been going around my head all day!
I broke up from work today, much to my delight and everyone else's dismay!! I'm glad because it leave tomorrow free to do some last minute washing and do some more packing, although alot of Connors stuff can't be packed until friday morning. At least our flight isn't until 4pm.
I really can't wait and am so excited. I'm looking foward to going abroad for the first time in 2 years, being able to spend quality time as a family, and ttc without all the conventional stress that comes with being at home! I was in 2 minds about whether to take my thermometer, but decided that I want to try to be as natural as possible this month, have sex because we want to and not just to make a baby (as that is how it seems sometimes).
Anyway, must dash now. I have left Connor watching , and I guess that I should sort out his dinner!!
I'm not sure if I will be able to get on again before we go away on Friday, so I wish all the ttc'ers the best of luck, especially Teresa, Nicky, Dayna, Lisa & Kelly. Bucket loads of babydust to you all (and a small one for me.) Here's hoping that I come back to see loads of BFP's from you lot!! That would make it worth coming back off holiday!!! LMAO!!!
Well, I’m back!!!! And very please to be so too (more about why in a moment). We had a good time on holiday, the island was absolutely beautiful, and the weather was fantastic. Our hotel was really nice, very family orientated and quite cosmopolitan with guests from germany, italy, france, UK and mainland spain. Now, the reason why I am so glad to get back, Connor has been so sick. The first week we were there he had a bit of diarrhoea, which wasn’t too bad as he was in good spirits. We had a few days where he was well. Then in the second week, he started to get very high fevers. We took him to the dr who said it was a respirirtory infection. The next night, I had to call a dr out to the hotel as he was crying non stop, and we were told that he had a bad throat infection. He had ulcers all over his tongue, and didn’t eat or drink anything for the last 2 days. We were going to take him to the hospital as soon as we got home, but he had a complete turn around on the plane and was eating and drinking like food and water were going out of fashion. He seems much better now that we are home.
I have never been so worried in my entire life, not even when I had my m/c.
On the TTC front, things couldn’t be better (except, that maybe I could have done without all the added stress of Connor being ill). Mark and I had fun getting some practice in and then I O’d a day later than expected, but did the bd on O day. As for signs and symptoms, I have been trying not to think about it too much, but my nipples are a bit tender, and I have been having some cramps (I didn’t cramp at all last month, that’s why I was so shocked when AF showed up, she snuck up on me). I am also hungry all the time. I have been feeling a bit sicky, but this may be down to my guts churning over with worry, and lack of sleep.
I hope that all you TTC’er are well, I have missed you all. Sorry that I don’t have time to do personals today, but will catch up with you all soon.
I know that I never post twice in one day, but I just found something that I wanted to write about when I finished unpacking.
While we were away, we bought english newspapers to read. I was flicking through the paper on the 8th Oct, and came across that horoscopes which I usually never read, but felt compelled to read mine on this day and this is what it said:
"The tendancy is to veer between hope and despair. The fact that you are still inclines to mull over recent mistakes is the main factor. Now for some good news - a celebration is in order. Seldom has there been a sweeter moment than the one you are about to discover."
Then the following day:
"Nothing is more exciting than a fresh start or second chance, and that is what the heavens promise you now"
I normally don't bother to read horoscopes because I think that they are a load of garbage, but if these prove to be true, I may well read my horoscopes for the rest of my life. I thought that it was just a bit weird that on two consecutive days, it seemed like they were writing about my life (but then again it could just be the context in which you take it)
Just wanted to mention it before I forgot..... here's hoping....
