On to thread 5 Ladies!


Please tag anyone I’ve missed from the old thread.

I’m currently enjoying my first glass of wine in about 10 weeks. Will happily give up alcohol for a baby but no baby I need alcohol πŸ˜‚

Really hope that’s the start of a BFP for you @Babyghirl let us know when you test in the morning.

@Annny27 Sorry it looks like AF has arrived.

@Nuggetlover27 Fingers crossed for a positive FW

It's faint but there but will wait to do another test just not convinced as no sore breasts or anything lol xx

Annny27 Sun 17-Jan-21 09:31:37

Thank you for setting it up @ELM7 πŸ₯° ooh a nice glass of wine is the slight silver lining on a very large and horrible grey cloud haha!

@Babyghirl any update this morning? 🀞🀞🀞

@nuggetlover27 yep it sucks being in the 12 month plus club, and now we are in the 18 month plus club!!!! Its insane i actually can't believe how long it has been sometimes!

Nuggetlover27 Sun 17-Jan-21 10:12:47

Thanks for setting up the new thread @ELM7

I know @Annny27 I also can't believe how long it's been ☹️ it's almost up to 2 years since we started TTC the 1st time 😒

Annny27 Sun 17-Jan-21 10:32:59


I thought I was okay this month, hadn't cried and calmly told my husband that period was arriving. But I am just sitting here now just wondering omg what if it never happens and it breaks me 😭😭😭
It feels a little bit like my life is worthless because all I have ever wanted is to be a mum πŸ’— and then I have my friends who have kids unknowingly breaking my feelings being like "ah you can have mine if you'd like".....yes I would like nothing more actually!!

I will pick myself up again and prepare myself for ANOTHER month. We have my husbands test results next week and then a fertility appointment in February so atleast something is progressing this month.

Do you have a frer?

@Annny27 πŸ’— sending you lots of hugs x
I often think about you and how unfair it is all.
You will get there. Maybe with a little help, but you guys will get there 🌈

ELM7 Sun 17-Jan-21 19:40:56

@Babyghirl no doubt on that line congrats and I really really hope that this a very sticky little bean for you this time. 🌈

@Annny27 I’m sorry you are feeling like that it’s so hard and the whole TTC is heartbreaking. Sending big hugs to you.

@SunnySideUp2020 Have good days and bad thank you for asking. Today’s been a bit of a meh day. Didn’t want to sit and do nothing but couldn’t motivate myself to actually do anything - lockdown is really not helping me or OH. Really hope you and your bump are doing ok.

Thank you very much just hoping 4th time luck and I'm finally getting my rainbow baby πŸ€žπŸ™πŸ€πŸ’š

SunnySideUp2020 Mon 18-Jan-21 07:31:29

@Babyghirl defo positive!
Congratulations girl x
Hope this is your rainbow finally !!!!

@ELM7 aww totally get it. lockdown is a bitch especially for mental health. I hope you are able to keep in touch with your friends and family. It's definitely normal to have those meh days. Especially after what you have been through. It really sucks to not be able to have some distractions to unwind etc.... I think it's important to make the effort to have contact with outside, even when there isn't much to say. To keep sane or to vent. The bump is good here and i have nothing major to complain about. Just the typical aches and pains and bored and lonely a bit as DH working full time i am left sitting home. It's -20 outside so getting fresh air is a bit of a mission. My new hobbie is knitting. πŸ˜‚ that's how desperate i am.

Annny27 Mon 18-Jan-21 10:08:24

A year ago I would think I was insane - I am but I dont see it as much.

Just googling "spotting lots, boobs no longer sore, bfp?"

Just no anny πŸ˜‚ your period is on the way and the spotting is the start of it, your boobs have shrunk because progesterone is dropping......just get over yourself 🀣🀣🀣

@Babyghirl whats todays test like??

@ELM7 oh its rubbish going through miscarriage, never mind during a pandemic - you poor thing πŸ’—πŸ’—

@sunnysideup2020 awwh are you knitting stuff for baby girl? πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

SunnySideUp2020 Mon 18-Jan-21 10:16:57

@Annny27 yes! But i literally just bought a crochet hook, some yarn and YouTube. So i am a very beginner. I did a blanket, 3 hats, and some mittens. Will attempt a small dress this week. And a hat for my sister!

SunnySideUp2020 Mon 18-Jan-21 10:20:30

Ah also i was thinking for ttc... well i remembered.
Before i got my bfp i was on a high dose of vit D supplement (in drops), high dose of folic acid and also on special iron tablets to get my levels up.
Don't know if it helped but couldn't have harmed.

Babyghirl Mon 18-Jan-21 10:32:00

Don't knw if they getting darker tbh πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

Babyghirl Mon 18-Jan-21 10:40:20

Hoping its a lucky one this time around xx

Annny27 Mon 18-Jan-21 10:46:20

Another friend said that to me the other day @sunnysideup2020 about vitamins! What dosage did you take? I Will look into it this month. I am also trying dairy free this month to see if that helps? Who knows haha!

@Babyghirl its getting darker since yesterday for sure!!! Call your gp to get progesterone and aspirin please please please 🀞🀞🀞

Babyghirl Mon 18-Jan-21 10:49:26

I have aspirin but won't give me progesterone but will phone and ask again if nt phone the hospital and try my luck xx

Annny27 Mon 18-Jan-21 11:45:49

Could you call the fertility clinic and ask for cylogest progesterone given that you have had 3 miscarriages??

SunnySideUp2020 Mon 18-Jan-21 12:10:30


Was actually taking a loooot of pills that month as i had stopped the seven seas conception and was taking individual pills.

Iron 56mg

Vit D 4000 IU (250 micrograms)

Folic acid 1400 micrograms (1.4mg)

Selenium 50 micrograms

Zinc 10mg

Vit C 80mg

Vit B6 2.8mg

Vit B12 5 micrograms

Babyghirl Mon 18-Jan-21 12:39:13

They closed for 4 weeks so I could wing it with the doc and say that and hopefully they give me it until at least the fertility clinic opens again πŸ€πŸ’š

Babyghirl Tue 19-Jan-21 10:45:34

Well phoned fertility clinic for progesterone and they said they won't issue it as they did not help me get pregnant but when doc phoned me yesterday she told me to phone them, but they told me today that it would be my doc to give me it so nw waiting on a doc phoning me to tell them wat the fertility clinic said omg why is it so hard to get my hands on them πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
