Hope no one minds me starting this one. Nice to see the thread moving so quickly.
How are we all today?
Hope you are in less pain today Tayto!
Nice to see you on the threads Aria, so sorry that you find yourself back here though.
AFM - AF about gone, so back to DTD. Hoping for a quiet day at work today.

Morning SallyLou! Good to hear AF is gone! What do you work as if you don't mind me asking? Hope you have a nice quiet day too!
AFM - AF pain has eased so planning now for what we'll do differently this cycle. In other news, already sorting out our plans for Christmas which will be causing tension between H and I. I'd much rather stay in UK as this is where our life is now (we did it last year & really enjoyed ourselves plus where I'd want us to be when/if we have our own family) whereas H's family demand expect us to spend it with them despite the fact they treat me like sh!t. Oh joy of joys.....

Oh my god my day has not got off to a good start, one of the dogs when to the loo outside and stepped in it and came through the house. Lots of steam mopping and a dog under the cold outside tap!! It can only get better now I suppose!!
SallyLou - Glad your AF has gone, I'm hoping for a quiet day too!
Tayto - Glad the pains are subsiding, Christmas can be a minefield can't it. We try and do alternate years with his parents and mine, but my Mum still has a bit of the hump when its not her turn.
AFM - Well I've got a stressy few days coming up at work. I'll be out all day tomorrow at a horrid customer trying to make him like us!! TTC wise nothing to report although I did realise our consultants appt next Tues is the same day AF is due. I'm pretty certain AF will be arriving!
Hi to all that follow x

Sallylou- Glad AF has gone, hope work is quiet for you.
Tayto - Glad you are not in pain anymore! I can't even bring myself to think about Christmas! If you stay here would it just be you and your h? I hope you don't have to go to your in laws if they treat you like that.
DollyP - Sounds like a nightmare morning I hope it gets better for you lol! I really hope af doesn't arrive but at least if she does you know you'll have the ball rolling.
AFM - Nothing to report really, feeling very lazy at work so putting things off which means I could end up going crazy on Friday getting things ready before I go away.
Hi to all who follow!
16/09/2014 at 09:30
Dolly - Oh no! I hope your day improves on that! Not least because it sounds like you'll need a good day today to help you with tomorrow's!
Lulu - Yep, it would be just me and H but he's on the fence regarding what he wants really! Be careful about putting your work off! I did that before Malta and spent Sunday afternoon (day before we flew) replying to emails and sorting stuff out before I left as I hadn't enough time on the Friday before! (I still went off with loads left to do anyway!)

Tayto - I am a Projects Administrator for an IT company, I work on a variety of projects, my main one at the moment is using a system to provide student's placements in there chosen therapy field (occupational therapy, physio etc). It keeps me busy! Sorry you're having trouble with Christmas, can't blame you for wanting to stay home though. We alternate between parent's, then go to the other one on Boxing Day, I always feel bad when we're at the husband's parent on Boxing day though as it's my Mum's birthday. I've started making lists for Xmas shopping already, I want to try and start getting bits early so it doesn't all come out in one go (it'll never happen....)
Dolly - what a morning, I hope your day picks up. Like Lulu I hope AF doesn't arrive on Tuesday!
Lulu - can't blame you for feeling lazy before your holiday, you have much more important things to think about! It is always nice to leave things as complete as you can though so you can completely shut off. I always end up rushing by the end of the week though - I do like procrastination.
16/09/2014 at 09:46
Morning you lovely lot!
SallyLou - Hope work is quiet for you!
Tayto - Glad your pains have settled. Can't believe your H's parents expect that of you. The joys of family politics!
Dolly - I did laugh - sorry. Not what you want first thing though, so yes on-wards and upwards!
LuLu - I know the feeling, but break the habit otherwise Friday will be a nightmare!
AFM - I had the worst nights sleep ever! I think I've got restless leg syndrome, ended up retreating to the spare room and slept in there through fear of waking up H, so I'm sat at my desk feeling like death! Thankfully I'm busy so the day should go quickly. Feeling nervous about Friday really hope my lining will be nice and thick, don't fancy staying on these drugs longer than I have to.
Hi to all who follow.
16/09/2014 at 10:13
Sally - that does sound like a busy job! I work as an IT project manager but it has peaks and troughs and is really quiet at the moment!
Claire - Sorry about the bad nights sleep - you're very sweet to sleep in the spare room - I bet my H wishes I was that considerate! I have everything crossed that you will have a lovely thick lining on Friday xx
16/09/2014 at 10:16
Dolly - I hope your appointment next week invokes the law of sod and af doesn't arrive. Also hope your day has improved!
Sally - hope your day is quiet
Claire - get yourself a strong cuppa to wake yourself up!
Lulu - sorry can't help with the motivation as I feel the same too
Tayto - can't believe you're thinking about Christmas already! Does your h's family live in Ireland? How long would you be expected to go for?
Afm - well work is crap at the moment. Everything seems like an uphill struggle. Oh well at least it's Tuesday!
16/09/2014 at 10:22
Thanks T - He drives allot in the day so he needs a good nights sleep, otherwise I wouldn't be that bothered!
How come Holey?
16/09/2014 at 10:27
Oh no Holey - what's up? Feel free to have a rant x
16/09/2014 at 11:02
Lulu - I know what you mean, I'm terrible for putting things off. I was putting off creating a slide deck yesterday then a colleague mailed out one she'd done, I was very lucky it covered everything I needed!!
ClaireLou - Sorry you had a rubbish nights sleep, do you think it's the nerves getting to you? It must be tough to stay calm and sleep at all. You are doing so well xx
Holey - I'm sorry to hear work is rubbish, what do you do?
My day maybe improving, a long dull call may be cancelled which is nice!!
16/09/2014 at 11:06
Dolly I think so, my mind was racing last night so I know it won't have helped. It's so hard to switch off though.
16/09/2014 at 12:10
Tayto - H and I are talking about having Christmas just us this year as well we'll have to see how that goes down lol! Hope you come to an agreement you are happy with.
Claire - Sorry to hear you had a bad night, you will have a nice think lining on Friday sending vibes!
Holey - Sorry work is rubbish hope it gets better soon.
DollyP - Glad to hear your day is improving!
Thanks ladies I have managed to get quite a bit done in the last 2 hours and feel better already, made myself a list of things I want done by the end of today and tomorrow! :-)
16/09/2014 at 14:08
Glad you're feeling more productive lulu.
I'm a quantity surveyor (yawn). Normally I enjoy it but we've got a site manager who I fear is setting me up to fail. My manager who I normally get on with just seems to never sign anything off without asking a million questions. I'm trying to place new trades on a new site and I just can't seem to get it done. Which doesn't help with my first issue. Last Friday I took something into my manager and the conversation went like this:
Me - contractor a is most competitive
Him - can you have a chat with them as we've been having issues with their labour
So I go off and speak to them yesterday (as there was no one in on Friday), they give me all the usual assurances so I go back to my manager with this yesterday and he asks me to go back to contractor B and ask for a discount. Why didn't he ask me to do that on Friday! so I phone them and the person I need to speak to is out so I had to speak to him today. All the while site are getting further and further ahead and are going to need them sharpish! but it'll be that hasn't sorted it when the directors start asking. It's just so frustrating.
Phew! I feel better for that!
16/09/2014 at 16:44
Glad you feel better for getting it off your chest Holey.
I won't be around tomorrow ladies and I'm in the office Thurs but will try and sneak on!! x
16/09/2014 at 17:02
Nice to see the thread moving, sorry I can't get on until after work.
Dolly - I really hope AF doesn't arrive. Also hope your call got cancelled!
Sally - glad AF has gone, fingers crossed for this cycle!
Claire - loads of vibes for a thick lining on Friday, although I will check in with you before then of course! Hope the rest of your day was ok. I had an awful night's sleep as well so know how you feel!
Lulu - ah, I always check out mentally at least a week before my holiday. Hope you have a lovely time!
Tayto - that's crapola about Christmas and family stuff. I'm very lucky and get on so well with my inlaws so I'm really looking forward to spending Christmas with them this year! It's my own family who I feel tense around.
Holey - Sorry that work is crap at the moment. Tomorrow is hump day and then it's practically the weekend ;)
AFM - TTC first: temp dropped just below the coverline yesterday morning, I foolishly duped myself into thinking it could be implantation dip but it dipped even further this morning. AF hasn't arrived but I am anticipating her arrival tomorrow, or by the end of today. Haven't spotted, perhaps that's a good thing. Anyway, even though I have been relatively ok the last couple of months, I am heartbroken this month. I cannot explain why, but I am. Cried at my desk, although managed to get to the kitchen just in time, which is new for me. It doesn't help that one of the colleagues I work with closely is pregnant. My pre-Christmas premonition has faded a little bit and I don't have any positivity today. Maybe I'll be ok tomorrow. But I have made the decision to not actively try next month. I just cannot take the emotion of it. I'm going to track the first day of my period but that's it. I'm not peeing in cups, I'm not taking my temperature, I'm going to have sex with H when I want to, and I'm going to expect my period. I figured that we're starting our tests and if it so happens that we (I) need to have the invasive treatments I just want at least one month where I feel normal. It means I'll be moving back to lurker status on here (otherwise I'll be too tempted to track) but I know you ladies will understand.
Non TTC: still got to fire out speculative applications. I'm not happy in the job role where I am, despite having awesome colleagues ... have decided to switch focus almost completely to career. I used to figure that when I have a baby I might be able to have a chance to look elsewhere for work but now this is yet another month where I find out I am not to be a mother I need something else to keep me properly occupied.
16/09/2014 at 17:28
I'm so sorry you are having another tough month, I really hope AF doesn't show for you but I also know that you know your body and the signs. Some months are just worse than others for what seems to be no reason. I hope that a proper break from all things TTC does you good, you sometimes need to remember who you are and who you are as a couple before you entered into this emotional rollercoaster. I only track the first day of my period at the moment, so I'm not that sure when I ovulated and I do feel better for it.
A distraction is a good idea, I need to get sewing again as it helps me.
Lots of love to you, be kind to yourself xxx

I just wanted to say hi to you all as I am a newbie around these parts! I joined MD around a year ago but I have been lurking rather than posting. I will hopefully get the hang of replying to all the personals if I can keep track of everything, so please bear with me!
In the meantime, it is good to join you
