BFP wishes will come true(1000 Posts)
Hopefully this is the last thread we start and all our dreams and wishes come true.
Bloddy bastarding AF twinkle and red - I am on your behalf! Hope she does one soon and you can both start the new year on fresh new cycles - 2013 will be THE year for both of you, I know it!
fatas I'm feeling your pain on the family front - I asked my mum for a new calendar for christmas (kind of a tradition), and she's bought a bloody Family Planner one - the kind with loads of columns for you to write mum/dad/the kids names in!! She got lots of looks from me. Well done you for containing yourself when your MIL started.
littlemiss and monthly glad you're both hanging in there, fx you can both settle into it and worry less soon.
Hope everyone's had a lovely Christmas!
red 2013 is soooo going to be our year.
We had a lovely Christmas, just me dh and the 2 monsters for dinner First time I've ever just cooked for us 4! Went to hospital to see my dad, then popped over to dh family (who are lovely so no dramas) and had some games, then back home, monsters in bed and snuggled with dh. Happy day
I think I'm around 6dpo but I'm feeling a loit more relaxed this month. Maybe just because dh is here for 4 weeks this time! Anyhoo, not stressing.
Thanks girls. I am okay. Had prepared myself for it already so handling it better.
2013 has got to be our year! I don't think I can survive this torture longer.
We have decided to try for another two months and then take a break for a month or so.
Sounds like a lovely Christmas wee!
Oh red ... Grr at AF That really sucks, so hope this is the last af you'll see for a very long while
kitten - argh at your MIL!!
7+5 now, no more bleeding, feeling sick again (just stopped wretching five mins ago after this mornings session) but stupidly keep reminding myself that everything was ok the last time too until after 8 weeks. Next scan is on Wed tho so hopefully that will go ok and maybe then I can start to relax
Glad to hear everything is ok with you little
Not so great about the BFN's and AF's showing up over Christmas though. 2013 will be out year though definitely.
I am so fat after Christmas. I stopped counting calories and went a bit crazy. Daren't stand on the scales but I imagine I'm now 7-10 lbs heavier. Time to get back to normality and put down the Mince Pies. Didn't manage a completely booze free Xmas as I drank a small glass of Rose but I'm not counting that. My temp has dropped massively so I'm ovulating today but DP is still asleep. Can't blame him though because he slept on the floor so I could stay in bed with ds2 who had badly bumped his head. Still, I feel like waking him up by announcing my imminent ovulation. I'm sure he'll love that.
How's everyone doing? Still in lazy Christmas mode or already taking down the decorations and putting the fitness DVD's on?
thingy Def still in lazy xmas mode! Til I make it to 12 weeks lol Got my pregnancy fitness dvds awaiting but not til I make it out of first tri. House is a state!! Hopefully won't be feeling so ill tomorrow and can make a start into it, but not taking xmas decorations down til new years day Now give DP a shake and tell him sorry you had to sleep on the floor darling but it's time to get busy!
Oh god thingy I totally agree, I have GOT to step away from the food!! The problem is our fridge is crammed full of leftovers and yummy Christmassy treats, and the house generally is full of crisps and chocolates and biscuits - I don't think we've had an actual proper cooked meal since Christmas dinner! Blurgh. I've definitely passed my junk limit though - have been at work yesterday and today and have barely eaten a thing
kind of. I've also drank (drunk?) way more alcohol than I was intending too but I refuse to feel bad about it because if I get to next week and get a BFN anyway then I'll feel like I wasted Christmas. January is detox month though - xmas decs come down new years day, and as part of that I shall be boxing up all junk food and taping it up until February - eek!
Still in Xmas mode here. Am at MIL's for a couple of days, meeting up with friends today, family again on Saturday then seeing friends again on Sunday so I'm not giving up food or drink till the new year.
Then it's no smoking, drinking and back to organic food and exercise!
I'm waiting til New Years to take down the decorations too. It takes long enough to put the tree up so I insist we make the most out of it.
I didn't think it was possible to eat so much that you didn't feel like eating the next day but I've actually managed it. It's nearly midday and I still feel full from yesterday.
I'll join you with a detox next month. I'm even going to give up my nightly hot chocolate and a biscuit for a month. Wow, January is going to be depressing but we can do it! Not yet though, there's still a piece of chocolate log left.
Right, I'm impatient, time to wake DP.
Had an amazeballs hot chocolate last night! We've more or less managed to eat outselves out of house and home (finaly) so getting Tesco delivery today even though last one was only 6 days ago and we spent a flippin fortune on that!

Ah kitten I think you you're very restrained at your mil too!!
Glad to hear everyone else is feeling as piggy as me! We are driving back home (takes all day) tomorrow and I will also be taking down the decorations on New Year's Day...
Not sure how the ds will react to getting home and back to 'normal' after all the spoiling and chocolate - he has barely had a square meal all week with all the treats people have been giving him!
I am certainly dreading returning to boring crappy work!!
I have decided a lot of PMA is needed and that 2013 will be the year for us! We only managed to DDT once before ov! So now we are 3 dpo I feel it most unlikely that this will be our month and am trying to prepare for the inevitable and to be a bit more laid back if I can!!

monthlywishes, how are you feeling atm? When is your appointment with the GP? Have you tried using pink dye FRER's to see if the line gets darker?
fatas you only need the once so try not to worry. I'm with you on the PMA this coming year. I refuse to stress anymore.
We've thrown everything at it this cycle. We're making the most of DP's week off work and we've been at it like rabbits. Today I've had actual EWCM! I've never seen it before so I'm saying the EPO is a massive success even if it is just a coincidence. The only danger here is that my hopes might be higher than normal.
What is everyone doing for New Year? I'm planning on my exciting annual tradition of doing nothing on NYE.
Oh so sorry monthlywishes
I was just wondering how you were doing.
Oh monthly - saw this on due in Aug thread earlier and have been thinking about you Horrible thing to have happened but glad you won't need surgery at least. Stick around on mumsnet, real life saver for me in August when I'd just had my mmc and wasn't actively ttc again yet but just needed somewhere where I could let all my blehhhhhhh feelings out xx
Oh no monthly I'm so sorry
What an awful few days you must have had - lots of and and un-MN hugs for you
I hope you are feeling better soon x
Oh no monthly I'm so sorry what an awful few days you've had
So sorry to read that monthly must have been awful. Hope you've had lots of cuddles from DH and very big hug for you
My AF hasn't arrived yet and I am feeling so tired and nauseaous for the last 3 days. I slept at 4pm yesterday and again feel the same today. I am not pregnant and a bfn yesterday confirmed it. Just don't know what's going on with AF.
Planning on doing nothin on New Years. Just shattered from Christmas festivities.
Monthly I am so sorry to hear that X X

monthly thinking of you it's an awful thing to be going through this time of the year. Hope your cycle returns to normal soon and also hoping you can start ttc soon. Fx your dream of a baby at Christmas next year will still come true x
Monthly - good idea, eat and drink your way thru it, anything that helps even a wee bit is worth doing, really do sympathise, terrible thing to go through
Not sure about nye - used to.love it but havent gone out since 08 became 09! In 09/10 i was pg and just starting to really suffer with sickness, in 10/11 ds was just 4 months and last year just had some friends round while he slept upstairs and i made spanish tapas. Normally boxing day wd be my big night out with friends but gave it a miss this year, been.invited to a nye party this year but in two minds at the min about whether to go or not, risk having an impromptu boke fest in front of them Scan isnt til Wed either so.not really in best mindset to celebrate until we know if news is good...
Hi everyone. Belated Merry Xmas from me.
monthly so sorry to read your news. Odd that you clearly felt it wasn't going right. Hope you're back in the actively TTC seat soon. And pleased (not the right word but hope YKWIM) you got it early and don't need surgery.
red and winkle - I'm with you in hoping 2013 will be our year. There's still time to pop one out before next Xmas!
Met a friend in the park today with her 2 year old and 12 day old. Sooo cute. She looked fab, too.
4 friends due before the end of Feb. I won't be able to get away from newborns!
Hope you all have had a fun week. Mine was **! Both DH and DD ill. DM is waiting for chemo to start (but does that excuse the "imagine having 2 of them" comment I got when talking about running round after DD when DH in bed all day - erm, yes, I can imagine it, thanks, as I would have had 2 by now but for m/c!!!).
DS(ister) had a fit on Xmas Day about how "gross" it was that her DS (13) had so few presents compared to our DD (nearly 2). How was that my fault? She is on her own and doesn't earn a fortune so had less to spend but DN has never gone without. Surely at 13 he wouldn't care so long as he got what he wanted (and he did - iPhone).
DS had 2nd fit at DH when he asked if she'd have her spare room sorted out for DM sny time soon (only been waiting 7 years). DM will need to stay with us or her when having chemo so a fair question but DH asked in the context of our considering a weekend away after a tough year and was met with a diatribe about the selfishness of even considering a break when DM in the middle of treatment (ongoing until July at earliest). After a m/c, DH's op with complications, DH's redundancy notice and DM's cancer diagnosis, were we really so selfish to be thinking of a weekend away? Suspect reaction fuelled partly by guilt that DS's spare room not sorted and her frustration that she couldn't have a break herself even if she wanted one.
Phew! Sorry! Stream of self-pity over!
Friend got married 8th Sep; get the text today that she's 3 months pregnant. Sigh.
