Hello! How's everyone today? How were the weekend plans?
Got most my ironing done and had a lovely Sunday afternoon with my cousins in London. TTC wise, gearing up for ov soon. Bought some more clothes for Malta - really cannot wait now!
Hello to all who follow x

Morning all, hope you are all well.
tayto - for Malta recs it's a while since I went but St Julian's Bay is lovely and definately worth a wander, there were some really nice restaurants around there when I went, especially if you like seafood. A couple of the places you can sit on a balcony above the see, so one for you and the hubby. Valetta is fabulous as is Mdina.
I'll not be on much now I'm only in work Monday/Tuesday and then it's wedding fest. Could I ask for some good weather vibes? It's currently forecasting rain. I'll not be here for a couple of weeks so I hope you all have a lovely August, and that you are all pregnant when I get back. x

T - I'ver never been to Malta but it's on the list! Hope you have a lovely time. When do you go?
RKB - You can't beat a good wedding, we've not had one this year, but have 3 next year! Sending you lots of good weather vibes!
AFM, well had a lovely weekend, met up with my sister and brother in law and their brood yesterday at Rother Valley Country Park and had a lovely day, the weather was beautiful so that helped. Other than that had a fairly chilled one.
I have a bit of an update with project baby making, we have decided to bring our FET treatment forward to this month, so I will be starting in 3 weeks time eeeek! It will mean I'll be on meds during my holiday but I've had the meds before and was fine and it's probbaly going to benefit me more doing it whilst I'm relaxed rather than having to go through ot and come to work every day. I spoke to the clinic on Saturday who are more than happy for us to start so that's that. :)

Sally Lou - thanks for the Malta recs - I love getting proper reviews and not just always relying on tripadvisor! Lots and lots of vibes for good weather this weekend. Have you a few umbrellas just in case? Hope you have a fab day, great honeymoon & we look forward to hearing all about it when you get back!
Claire - eeeekkkk! Excellent news. What made you bring it forward if you don't mind me asking? 3 weeks today is when we go to Malta.
04/08/2014 at 09:32
Sally - So sorry, I have no idea why I thought it was RKB that posted, Monday morning brain!
T - I'm not really sure, we gave it some thought at the weekend and then suddenly it just felt right we said we would wait and see what the clinic thought and make a decision following that but they said it would be fine. I like the idea of not being at work whilst doing the injections, into the second week you do start to feel a bit fatigued, last time I was lucky as I started them over Christmas so had the entire time off work so it'll be similar again.

Tayto - Sounds like a lovely weekend, what did you get up to in London? Holiday shopping is great!
Sally - Eeeeeek that is so exciting! Where are you getting married? Lots of vibes for good weather for you!
Claire - That is great news so pleased for you! Sounds like it all feels right so a great time to start. Keeping everthing crossed for you x
AFM - Had a lovely weekend with friends over on Saturday and chilled out yesterday. Feeling strangely positive about ttc at the moment which makes me worry lol! No idea why but I'm starting to believe it will happen for us we just don't know when, I'm sure this postive attutide will go if / when af arrives!
Hi to all who follow!

Glad to hear you're feeling positive Lu.
04/08/2014 at 11:18
Claire - Sounds like a great plan - tonnes and tonnes of vibes for you x
Lu - Glad to hear you're feeling positive - I really hope it happens for you soon.
Wonder where RKB is today? Hope she's not still suffering from the wedding at the weekend?! :-)

Tayto - sounds like a good weekend. Malta will be wonderful. Always struck me as a very romantic place :)
Sally - so exciting!!! can you flash us some pics - venue, dress etc? And I can just say that rainy weddings always make for very cute photos : groom helping bride hold up her dress, nice detailed umbrellas etc. I quite like this one from after our civil ceremony (we had another ceremony with all our friends and me in another dress *grin* )
Claire - that's very exciting!!! Everything crossed for you
Lulu - positivity is so important. Hope it's a great inkling you've got there.
AFM - we were at a wedding in London on Saturday which was just adorable. Really sweet. They are both musicians so there was lots of live music - both the bride and groom performed in their separate bands!! Back at work today after two weeks away. Can't complain, but I'd like to!! Think I'm ov'ing at the mo. Had ewcm yesterday so probably either today or tomorrow I think. I'm confident we'll be well covered.

I've come to join you all today!
Tayto - well done on the ironing can I send you mine please?
SallyLou - Sending you some good weather vibes.
Claire - Such exciting news, I'm really excited for you and send you lots of luck xxx
Lulu - Nice to hear you have a PMA, I hope it brings good things!
AFM, I had a nice relaxing weekend with H and my dogs, we went on a lovely long walk yesterday they were exhausted afterwards bless them. Unlike Tayto I ignored all of my ironing!!
I got a call from the Drs surgery this morning re my referral, she was booking it for me all online and got me an appointment for 23rd September at the fertility clinic. That's only 7 weeks away so I'm quite impressed!
04/08/2014 at 13:01
Veecee, sorry I missed you there, that's a really sweet wedding picture
04/08/2014 at 13:06
Lulu - just realised I didn't answer your q - I was at my cousin's H's 50th birthday. Think it was also their house warming!
vc - I really love that pic! The wedding sounds lovely; shame you have to go back to work after your hols. Fingers crossed for you for this cycle - think we're ov'ing around the same-ish dates.
Dollyp - lovely to 'see' you here. Delighted to hear you're on the way with your referral. Hope all goes well for the 23rd x
04/08/2014 at 14:01
veecee - is that pic from your wedding? It is lovely, you're right I think rainy day pictures can look lovely as well and at least there is no squinting in the sun!
Dolly P - Great to see you! That is great news about the referal, not long to wait at all.
Ladies I need help! I really need to lose some weight I'm scared I'm creeping up to my heaviest :-( I'm not overweight really but as I'm only 5ft1inch every pound makes a difference. Can you reccomend any diets? H and I eat together most nights and he hated when I did weight watchers so I need to do something where the evening meals are good for him as well. I'm also so bad with lunches as I buy lunch everyday, I get so bored of the usual places then end up with something I shouldn't have! Please inspire me! :-)
04/08/2014 at 14:15
Dolly - that's great about the appointment. I was referred in early June and still waiting to hear. Really hope you don't need that appointment though!
As for ironing, I will admit that we don't even own an iron.
Yup, that's from our wedding :)
Lulu i'm back on slimming world tomorrow. I had started recently enough but struggled with work trips away and then holidays. I've about 2 stone to lose. Slimming world is pretty good for couples I think.
04/08/2014 at 18:09
Tayto - how exciting! What did you buy? Care to flash?
Sally - All the best with your wedding! I hope the weather is good for you!
Claire - that's exciting! Hoping that everything goes well!
Lulu - Glad to hear you're feeling positive! Your weekend sounds like it was fab! My H is doing a sort of fasting diet where he doesn't eat between 8pm and 12pm. He's lost about a stone since starting.
Veecee - the wedding sounds Like it was fab! Hope work wasn't too bad!
Dolly - that's fab news about your referral! As always, I hope you don't need it!
Afm- I'm not well :-( think I got a chill or something at the weekend as I'm utterly wiped out and choked up. The wedding was fab though! I don't think the rain could have come down any harder, but that didn't dampen the spirits of anyone! I wasn't drinking as I was driving, so I can't blame my illness on drink.
Ttc wise and we're on CD 5 so AF is on her way out thankfully! Going to start with the OPK from next weekend!
04/08/2014 at 21:18
Lulu - I'm currently trying to just change little bits about my diet at the moment. I almost resent doing an actual diet cos I always feel like I'm depriving myself of nice food!
RKB - I just got some t-shirts and light hoodies - nothing terribly exciting so I'll pass on the flash! Sorry you're not feeling so well. Glad to hear the wedding was fab though!
04/08/2014 at 22:14
rkb - sorry to hear you are unwell. Hope whatever it is huggers off quickly
05/08/2014 at 08:18
Thanks ladies. Still running a fever today, but keeping hydrated and resting
Veecee - sorry to hear about your referral. I hope there is a way to get their decision overturned
05/08/2014 at 08:48
veecee - I looked at slimming world and not sure I understand it lol! I also couldn't find how much it was? I've also replied to your other post, hope you are doing ok today x
RKB - I hope you feel better soon in time for ov!
Tayto - I've been trying to do that and use my fitness pal but I always get easily strayed lol! I am like you though and resent doing an actual diet especially if I have to pay to follow it which is why I haven't done ww since before I got married.
I hope everyone else is ok today!
05/08/2014 at 08:59
What a busy thread - that's so nice to see. :-)
Veecee your wedding pic is lovely - I saw about your other thread as well, I hope you get it sorted lovely.
Little flash as requested, venue, honeymoon, cakes, dress, hair etc - colour is yellow/white. If I get chance I'll sneak a pic on before honeymoon, if not I will definitely show you when I'm back.
Speak to you all soon. xx
