Morning lovelies. Hope u all have a lovely Xmas! About to enjoy a salmon and scrambled egg breakfast grin

HazleNutt Tue 25-Dec-12 11:13:55

Oh dear, PILs want to stay for another day. They're lovely, really, but elderly and not very active, no idea what to do with them now. FIL rarely speaks and MIL speaks all the time mixing French, German and Alsatian, forgetting I don't really understand 2 of them, it's quite tiring.
(ok I should consider myself lucky that this is my biggest problem, but was kind of looking forward to a day on the sofa in my pyjamas..)

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Tue 25-Dec-12 14:25:34

Wow hazle your child is going to be splendidly multilingual!

HazleNutt Tue 25-Dec-12 15:26:20

Zombies, that's actually a bit worrying. We would speak French, Estonian and English at home, grandparents speak Alsatian (French as well, but they forget and switch back) and our village primary school is French/German bilingual. Will certainly be a challenge..

MotherOfCleo Tue 25-Dec-12 17:16:09

merry christmas everyone! Ive had very light spotting today, really really hope its implantation! grin 7dpo so fingers crossed i get a BFP by New Year :-) xx

Happy Christmas everyone hope you all get what you want this year

Bunnygirlie Tue 25-Dec-12 23:43:53

Oh Crikey, I logged on hoping to read of happy scans and people telling their loved ones at Christmas, quod so so sad to hear your news, hugs x

Here's hoping that next Christmas we all have a little person with us x

Bunnygirlie Tue 25-Dec-12 23:45:25

twinklestar2 Wed 26-Dec-12 10:59:01

I really hope so bunny.

Pipbin Wed 26-Dec-12 15:45:24

Well AF still isn't here and the spotting has eased up. However this is all standard and given how ill I've been I wouldn't be surprised if she holds off for a couple if days anyway.

viviennewestwould Wed 26-Dec-12 15:53:53

Pip, illness would only make AF late if it occurred at ovulation. Were you ill then?

Pipbin Wed 26-Dec-12 17:35:22

This is true Viv, and I know when I ov'd so she should show up tomorrow regardless I guess.

viviennewestwould Wed 26-Dec-12 17:54:49

Fingers crossed you are pregnant, Pip. How many DPO are you? Do you hold off testing unless your period is late?

Pipbin Wed 26-Dec-12 18:03:34

13 DPO today, AF usually shows on 14.

HazleNutt Wed 26-Dec-12 18:50:51

Berries, what's the opinion about those fetal doppler monitors you can buy, get one or no? On the one hand, reassuring to check between scans, but then again according to internet opinions, it's not always easy to find the heartbeat, so in this case we would of course panic massively. Will you get one?

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Wed 26-Dec-12 19:09:41

hazle I read an article where it said that a number of women had thought there still was a heartbeat when there was none (turns out they were listening to the blood in their own body circulating) so without the Doppler they would've gone to their doctors immediately but as they were lulled into a false sense of security it took them more time to go.
Obviously it would be in a minority of cases that this would even be relevant..

navis176 Wed 26-Dec-12 19:27:41

Hope everyone had a fab Christmas smile. Although it sounds like everyone has been having bad news - not what was ordered from santa sad

Quod - really sorry to hear your news [big hug] – I hope you’re not feeling too shitty even though it’s a mega sad time

Yorkie - hi [waves] – sorry to hear about your mmc – been there 4 times myself and it’s shit

Janey - glad all is good with you

Pip - fx for tomorrow

Bunnygirlie Wed 26-Dec-12 20:07:58

Evening all, AF due on new years eve and a bit of light spotting started today so I guess she's coming early. Got the pre AF itch (sorry tmi) too so I know she is just around the corner sad

FX for you pip

Who else is due AF or poas?!?

janey1234 Wed 26-Dec-12 20:13:32

Hey everyone, and happy Christmas.

Pip - got everything crossed for you that the evil bitch doesn't pop by tomorrow...

Hazle - when I had my scan on Xmas eve out of the blue she just said that I should NOT get a Doppler. She said that she sees so many people stressing because they can't hear the heartbeat, when all is fine, and that the stress isn't good for you. She also said that loads of people think their heartbeat is the baby's. I don't think I'll be getting one as I think I'd be in a constant state of worry!

janey1234 Wed 26-Dec-12 20:13:57

Oh and bunny - hope your prediction is incorrect....

Fingers crossed Pip

HazleNutt Wed 26-Dec-12 20:22:54

thanks janey. Yes, it's probably a better not to - considering the constant OMG symptoms have disappeared panic, I don't even want to imagine the can't-find-heartbeat one.

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Wed 26-Dec-12 20:27:19

pip bated breath for you!

Pipbin Wed 26-Dec-12 20:37:00

Thanks guys, but I know she is on her way, I've had my regular red spotting.
