How may have you have experienced this and how long after the all clear?

I posted, went for lunch and expected loads of replies when I came back.

MamaG Wed 17-Sep-08 13:32:02

Have you got something to tell me?

My friend got pg five years after her husbands vasectomy........after checks he's been told that it hasn't offically 'failed' The amount of sperm he produces is still low enough that he's counted as infertile, but obviously it only takes one of the little buggers.

Not sure, MamaG. hmm

5 years?!?!?!?!?!? shock

MamaG Wed 17-Sep-08 13:54:07

Do you think that perhaps it would be a good idea to test, my love?

BlueJellie Wed 17-Sep-08 13:55:28

my god bet that causes some arguements in the household at first!!

Idobelieveinfairies Wed 17-Sep-08 13:55:52

oh yes..def test..and then come right back and tell us [nosey].

these things do happen,heard many a story.

ImnotMamaGbutsheLovesMe Wed 17-Sep-08 13:57:41

cry cry cry

stupid stupid woman

it is impossible

I am about 10 seconds late.

I want a baby...............

ImnotMamaGbutsheLovesMe Wed 17-Sep-08 13:58:23

No argument here BlueJ. Hubby will just laugh at me. grin

MamaG Wed 17-Sep-08 14:00:03

OK, keep calm, stay relaxed and see what happens over the next few days. if no period arrives, do a test. And tell me first, either way wink

don't cry

lulumama Wed 17-Sep-08 14:01:20

don;t cry

you have had this before haven't you ?

if you are a day or two late, then test

ImnotMamaGbutsheLovesMe Wed 17-Sep-08 14:01:32

I am sure it is more psychological than reality. I have no tests anyway.

Would tell you first, after hubby maybe! wink

serenity Wed 17-Sep-08 14:04:48

No arguments in my friends house either - all the sceptical eyebrow raising was from friends, and all the 'are you sure it's your husbands' type question were from health professionals. Actual DH was very laid back and accepting of the whole thing.

ImnotMamaGbutsheLovesMe Wed 17-Sep-08 14:05:10

The constant need for the loo doesn't help either.

lulumama - it is a bit of a habit. blush I am sure because I so want more kids but I know it is risky for my health. Oh why wouldn't they sterilise me instead!?!?!?!?

lulumama Wed 17-Sep-08 14:05:25

grin give it a few days then get cheap test if neccesary

ImnotMamaGbutsheLovesMe Wed 17-Sep-08 14:22:09

I'll probably manage to wait until about half nine tomorrow and then be down the shop!

MamaG Thu 18-Sep-08 09:39:35

Are you OK today notmama?

ImnotMamaGbutsheLovesMe Thu 18-Sep-08 12:07:38

Thank you my lovely.

Just late. Again. blush

Have to focus on hubby saying we can adopt in a few years. I just feel so sad for the babies I lost and the fact it is too dangerous to have any more. sad

MamaG Thu 18-Sep-08 14:16:28

If/when you do adopt, I'm sure you will love those babies just as much as if you'd carried them. Pour all your love into the children you have and remember why its not a good idea for you to get pg.


ImnotMamaGbutsheLovesMe Thu 18-Sep-08 14:19:27

I know you are right. I just feel really low today. I had an awful morning with the kids behaviour, I have a headache and people coming for tea tomorrow and my house is a mess and their's is more recently decorated. Mine is a home with young kids but it is tired.

MamaG Thu 18-Sep-08 17:07:32

Aw we all have days like that don't we. I told SIL once that I was nervous when she came over as her house is so gorgeous - she said she comes to see us, not the house which cheered me up a bit (although she probably noted the dust grin)
