    Lets update what is going on with everyone.
    Be good to have a kitchen table natter again.
    I have the kettle on and the cakes are cooling just out of the oven.

    How is everyone doing?

    I am finding motherhood amazing.
    Kind of don't want anyone else near my son. Including M!!!
    Lol
    He is in a growth spurt at the mo I think as he is eating sooo much... Yet not sleeping as long as I would hope.
    2 hours and he wants more!! If he hasn't surpassed his birthweight tomorrow at weigh in I will eat my shoe!!!
    Lol
    Never knew that I would spend my day changing nappy after nappy and actually love it!!

    Still in shock I have this little person. Took so long to get him... I am still waiting for the bubble to burst.

    I have already lost all my pregnancy weight plus.
    Just want my lower tummy to deflate more so I can get into the jeans I git for Christmas should fit me even better then then!!!

    Life is good xxx

    Trying not to stress too much whilst dealing the full effects of a blue moon (DS get a little bit, ok a lot more challenging, during a full moon.).
    Started FSH I injections yesterday and I go back next Monday for my next scan.

    But Liz I remember that time well.

    Is it okay if I pop in? Just sticking my toes back in the water here at pg.org

    Liz, I am so incredibly happy for you! I know I haven't actually been signed in much or talked to you hardly, but I've followed your journey and am so happy you have your gorgeous boy.

    AFM- not much on the fertility front. I've got complex ovarian cysts that seem to be on a cycle- the first u/s showed one on each ovary (a much larger, complex one on the right), the next scan showed the right one was gone, but now the left one is large and complex. I should be going for another scan soon, but with the Canadian health system, it always takes a lot longer than it should.

    My doctor is doing the "wait and see" approach. So, the past 6 months have been spent waiting to see if the cysts will disappear. I'm feeling like I will probably get no help in TTC. I'm a big girl, and in Canada some RE's won't see women who are overweight.

    On a lighter note, it is nice and sunny, and school starts soon so I will be back to teaching. Looking forward to it.

    Hey Ladies,

    I'm around. Mostly on the IVF forum, pretty much lying low. I'm currently 6 days post transfer but feeling EXTREMELY nervous since I have all my typical AF symptoms, and technically AF is due Friday. So I'm trying to prepare myself for the worst right now.

    I have 4 frozen embies, and one more chance of IVF and then that's it. We haven't discussed past this, since IVF is very expensive. I am going to buy tests tomorrow and havent completely decided if I'm going to test tomorrow or not. Right now it's still early, but I will buy enough to test for several days if AF doesn't show. I need all the prayers I can get right now, since these cramps are really really stressing me out bad!!!

    I love this! Its been so quiet here that I've been hoping to read some updates. My "enter" key isn't working on here, so I apologize now for my big long paragraph post. >>> Liz, I am SO happy for you!!!! It does take some time to feel real. Heck my daughter is 16 and I have moments when I can't believe I have a daughter, let alone a daughter that age!! >>> Jodie, Wishing you all the best on your cycle!! >>> Elizabeth, I'm so sorry you are still dealing with those pesty cysts!! I hope you are back on the TTC wagon very soon! >>> Marisol, I am praying this is your cycle! Hang in there with those symptoms. They can mean so many different things and are so hard to read. >>> A lot has been going on at my end. I'm not TTC at all. However, I was in a car accident back in May and am very frustrated with the fact that 14 weeks later I am still suffering with pain. There has been improvement overall, thanks to my physical therapist and massage therapist, but I am hurting every single day at one point or another. And very tired by the end of my work day. Makes my job and life difficult. I have put on weight and lost muscle tone, as I can't return to my exercise routine I had prior to the accident. I was going to boot camp twice a week and running twice a week as well. I miss my life as it was before and struggle with how my life is now. I also suspect I have TMJ from the whiplash injury. I have most of the symptoms and have complained about those symptoms to my treating therapists on a regular basis, but nobody has said anything about whether that's what it is or not. I even have the ringing in my ears. Once my family dr returns from holidays I am going to make an appointment to see her. I haven't seen her since late May when she referred me to the physiotherapist and I feel like I need to follow-up with her and see if there is anything more I can be doing to get better. I feel like its taking way too long and my treating therapists seem to think that stress is causing flare-ups rather than physical strain. I am stressed, but I don't feel like its causing all my problems. They want me to find ways to relax more, which I know I need to do. I just think that I may need to explore other therapies to achieve full healing. I've also had some good things happening in my life too! Its not all pity party from the accident. I have been enjoying a beautiful summer with friends and family!

    Goodness, I'm so bad in these ongoing threads so I usually avoid them. I forget to comment on everyone so I feel bad.

    Things are going well on my end. 18wks tomorrow and I'm finally starting to feel actually really pregnant. I almost felt like before that I wasn't...almost like it was surreal. But the belly is getting bigger and I'm starting to feel some movement. Big U/S is next Tuesday so I will post after that. We are NOT finding out the sex though! It's team green all the way and a surprise at the end!!

    Liz Blue moon is the second full moon in less than a month, meaning a lot of extra chaos and mayhem for 48-72 hours as DS is very much effected by the cycles of the moon (he has done since in utero).

    Dreamchaser - I can so understand your frustration. I had a bad car accident in 2005 and it took so long and so much physio, hydro and massage therapy to recover. ((((hugs))))


    Rachael - good luck for your scan next week and yay for being on team green.
    Marisol. Sending lots of sticky vibes for you.

    Elizabeth - I hope the cysts calm down for you very soon.

    I second what Jodie said and add...
    Marisol... Keep us updated on what's going on... Saw your thread at dysal!!!
    Excited!!!!

    We ended up at a and e yesterday.
    I took Ed to the doctors as he had been waking up from his Moses basket really congested. The health visitor had said to raise the head end with some books to help with drainage and if that didn't work to take him up the doctors.. So I did.
    And I mentioned about his erratic breathing too and that was that she called the hospital let them know I was coming.
    M was off on a bike ride and if course I still can't drive after my c section so I called a work mate who is on maternity .. She's due in oct.
    And she came and got me.
    Shows a good friend... Bless her.
    Turns out its just periodic breathing.. Just Eds is a little more extreme.
    He'll grow out if it,
    Bloody scary!!

    I washed his Moses basket cover too and he didn't have congestion today...
    Weird!!

    So.. Looks like he's waking do I can see if he's grown into some clothes and feed him!!!!
