Morning .....
Another Friday, biiig meeting at work where we are supposed to sit in front of the senior bosses with our line manager and explain openly and honestly why we cannot get along with our LM. Trouble is, I'm the only one who seems to have the guts to open my mouth.....hmmm or maybe I'm just gobby grin.
cheese how lovely of you to remeber that time is short. We have this weekend and the next one and the one after that I take him up North. We are planning a bit of a get together one evening....just my family really and we are having a Caribbean theme (thats where he is from) just means that (cleverly) he will do the cooking .

hello ladies - well Tested (very early) this morning and I got a bfp!!!!!!!!! very early days yet and I know I won't feel secure until 3 months have passed but for now I am pregnant!!!!!

Thanking god and Care fertility that it worked the first time :-) wasn't sure how I was going to cope if it had been a bfn as it would have been the end of the road for us!

CaliBee Fri 12-Oct-12 07:57:26

OMG....congratulations tina so pleased for you

goldengirl71 Fri 12-Oct-12 09:00:48

Hi everyone, found you all. Tina know we haven't 'spoken' before but have been following the thread - fantastic news, congratulations!. GG good news re your appointment too, hope DH is doing as he's told now (you're a bit scary you knowsmile). I've just announced to my DH that he needs to start taking vitamins and stop drinking. Some sex might be helpful too. I just got a lookhmm. Perhaps this new thread will bring us all some new luck!

sparklysapphire Fri 12-Oct-12 11:13:46

Tina, that's fantastic news, I'm so pleased for you, congratulations - I'll be keeping everything crossed for you over the next few weeks.
Cheese good to know all is well with your been so far. Golden, good news that you got some useful info (and the Clomid) from your consultant, hope your DP will start pulling his weight!
As womble says, here's hoping this thread brings BFPs for more of us.
Miasmum, wishing you love and strength for next week, and angel love to you too this week.
And very belated congratulations to jollster on the birth of Jem, hope all is going well.
love to all.

Fireflies, it wasn't a joke at all. Prince Charles talks to his plants - I talk to my ovaries.

I think this is absolutely going to be the lucky thread, especially having kicked off with Tina's big fat positive grin I want to be pregnant by Christmas (are you listening, ovaries??)

goldengirl71 Fri 12-Oct-12 11:21:40

Womble, I am only scary if you do not do as you are told and your behaviour may be impacting on my ability to conceive [indignant emoticon].

goldengirl71 Fri 12-Oct-12 11:23:41

Where are the mood swings Clomid promises? I'm dying for a scrap

goldengirl71 Fri 12-Oct-12 11:28:13

Streuth! I hope Sheila Gum finds us..

10000Fireflies Fri 12-Oct-12 11:47:04

Go Tina, go tina!!

knickyknocks Fri 12-Oct-12 15:32:51

I'm just flying in to say wonderful fantastic news Tina. I know how those first few days/weeks feel and they must feel especially so given your journey. Thinking of you, and crossing everything that your little bean sticks.

I still read this thread and I'm always hopeful that there's good news. I really do hope that everyone gets good news soon. You were all such a wonderful support when I was a regular contributer on this thread. I'm coming up to 18 weeks now and things are going very smoothly. We'll find out in a couple of weeks if little one is a boy or girl. Anyway, wanted to say much love and thinking of you all xx

Fabulous news Tina - gringringrin Hang in there lovey XXX

MiaAlexandrasmummy Fri 12-Oct-12 17:37:13

Yay, what fabulous news, tina!! A really fantastic start to the lovely sparkly new thread created by the Clomid-enhanced golden...

Irishmammybread Fri 12-Oct-12 18:00:06

Congratulations Tina, fantastic news! x

TinaO99 Fri 12-Oct-12 18:49:40

thanks so much for all your lovely comments ladies, you've all been wonderful, hope everyone else gets bfps soon.

I have my first scan at care on the 2nd nov then I get passed into the 'tender loving care' of the NHS. I now have to find out what has changed since I had my daughter 21 years ago!!!!!

Diege Fri 12-Oct-12 19:28:15

Oh wow Tina that's brilliant news grin. I have been lurking but unable to post as away with work in Cardiff, and had been hoping so much for good news for you. You must have felt absolutely amazing as you got that second line/cross/'pregnant' on the test grin. Hoping for a very uneventful 9 months xxx
Golden great that you have your clomid - I was so disappointed for you as your chart looked very positive. Even charting is fallible though (same happened to me - triphasic chart but not pregnant) and in the end I remember just taking temps until ovulation had been established - it was far too much for my nerves carrying on into the 2ww.
I know I've missed loads, but we need a mega bistro tonight to celebrate Tina's great news. I say a massive 'all you can eat' chinese buffet. I'm starting off with deep fried tofu with green peppers in blackbean sauce, with Jasmine rice. Dh is actually on his way to get it for me as we speak grin

goldengirl71 Fri 12-Oct-12 20:06:06

Diege! [waves] Nice to hear from you and thanks (to you all) for your positive Clomid comments. I've just had my tea and will have to pass on afters, too, simply because I refuse to eat the pointless shit Chinese buffets serve up as 'desserts' sad

Diege Fri 12-Oct-12 20:20:22

Are you dissing my banana fritteres then Golden??? Or maybe I could get one of those frozen penguin ice cream deserts for you? grin Or is that in Indian restaurants? confused. Btw, thought of you when I bought my '3 for a pound' cadbur'sy caramel bars today. Sacrilege what they've done to them angry. Rounded off the segments so that you get a smaller bar and a less satisfying break of section. Even when refrigerated. An all-round less satisfying experience, but for the same price when the offer ends. Not a good day in Cadbury Land!

gothinrecovery Fri 12-Oct-12 21:44:46

Tina that is fantastic news! So pleased for you.

Golden hope you are feeling a bit better and DP is whipped into shape smile

Am vegging out with a wine - having the AF from hell, way heavier than usual (sorry tmi) feel rank. Hopefully less rank tomorrow after a good sleep!
