I've been wondering where you all are too and if you're ok. I've taken many a break from the TTC board when it all gets too much. Especially when there are flurries of bfps. I hope you're all ok, and I will continue to look out for you and hope to see you soon xx

Thanks, both. X
I lurk occasionally but even not lurking half as much. It's not even really to do with the rush of BFPs - a lot of it is just trying not to focus on it all. I've found that since I've started tracking just the first day of my period that I'm a lot more relaxed during the run up to my period. I had my birthday last week which was nice, but I was also a little sad during the day as I thought I'd be a mum by 34, or at least have one on the way. I know I'm still young enough to get a BFP but I couldn't help but think about it. I have my rescheduled HSG next week, thankfully my most recent period arrived on time and was not unusually heavy so I'm hoping to finally get some answers. As my cycles are regular and not painful (although they can be heavy on the second day) I'm hoping it's a simple fix. My bloods are all fine which is another good sign, I guess. We get my husband's second SA results on Thursday.
If I focus too much on TTC my marriage tends to take a turn for the worse as it can be all I think about and my husband isn't always the most understanding about it which can result in some humdingers of arguments. We're talking about things but he has a lot to learn in terms of what I need, despite the fact we've had several conversations about it.
I do think of you all a lot, I only thought of you two this morning actually! And I always hope that your pregnancies are going well. I am so desperate to join and am terrified deep down that I'll be in the same position as now one year from now but I am keeping my hope alive. I would be over the moon if I had a BFP before Christmas but of course I'm not counting on it. I just hope it's soon.
Thanks for the thoughts. Sending you lots of love. Xxxx

Hi claire. Thanks for thinking of us.
I wouldn't mind contributing to a thread but as I'm currently in the 2ww and in hospital for a kidney infection I don't feel like I have much to contribute!
I'm lurking though as I'm enjoying seeing how you are all getting on.
Enjayee - I'm glad to hear you sounding a bit more positive. I hope you and your H are ok x

Fark Holey, I don't mean to de-rail this thread, but so sorry to hear you're in hospital. Have you been in for long? I hope that they can get to the bottom of it and that you're on the mend soon X

Hi lottie. Been here since yesterday morning. Waiting for an ultrasound tomorrow. Hopefully will be sorted then. Thanks.
How are you doing?
10/11/2014 at 21:45
Thanks both for thinking of us.
I'm in the 2WW and trying really hard not to go crazy (which is proving hard). I feel bad complaining though as my journey so far is pretty short. I hope both of your pregnancies are going. Well.
Holey :-( poor you. I really hope that you feel better soon.
Lottie, I hope that everything is ok with you?
10/11/2014 at 21:51
I hope that tomorrow goes ok and you can get out soon.
I've also got a scan tomorrow. I'm still convinced that it's gone wrong but I'm prepared for the news. Fortunately I've booked the day off as holiday so I haven't got to go back to work afterwards....

If you feel up to it, please let us know how you get on. I'll be thinking of you x

Enjayee - I am so glad your period has behaved this time and I hope to god you get to have this HSG next week, which may provide you with some answers. Good luck with H's SA. I totally know what you mean about trying to not think about TTC all the time as it can have detrimental effects on other things, especially relationships, but we are always here for you to vent your frustrations please don't forget that. x
Holey - I am so sorry to hear this! I really hope you get better soon. x
Peggs - Sending lots of luck your way x
Lottie - Good luck for today I've been thinking about you lots and sending so many vibes. x

Thanks for thinking of us Claire.
I've not been on in a few days we're busier at work, and I've had headaches on and off since Thursday so I'm staying away from screens as much as poss. I am taking a slight backseat to TTC this month (no opks etc) just to have a more relaxed approach. It's funny how it gets to you even if it's only been a few months.
Dolly - hope you're getting on ok!
Enjayee - fingers crossed you get your HSG next week.
Holey - bless you, you poor thing, are you any closer to getting home?
Hi Peggs - good luck for the 2WW.
Lottie - just lots of love to you.
Perhaps a weekly thread may be in order for a while?

Enjayee - Happy birthday for last week, I'm glad that taking a step back from tracking everything has made you more relaxed. Good luck for the HSG I really hope it is successful this time, and good luck with your H's SA results. And remember even if his results aren't great it's not the end of the world. My H had one terrible result and one better but still well below average one. I really hope to see you with a bfp soon, keep hoping don't give up, as some ladies here have shown in recent weeks those miracles really do happen xxx
Holey - You poor thing, I hope you recover soon and aren't in the hospital too long x
Peggs - I hope you're keeping calm in the 2ww, easier said that done! Good luck for this month!!
SallyLou - I hope a rest from screens clears up the headaches. It is amazing how quickly ttc can get to you, even if you swear you won't let it. Good luck for this month!
Lottie - I've seen your thread and I am so sorry xx
Hugs to anyone else lurking who needs a hug xxx

Hi ladies! Thanks Claire for thinking of us I hope you and your bean are ok!
I've also taken a break as I was waiting to have my hycosy and final consultant appointment, all came back ok apart from one question mark on the hycosy I'll explain more in a separate thread.
Enjayee I hope your hsg goes well x
Holey- sorry to hear you're in hospital how are you?
Dollyp I hope you're doing ok as well!

Hi ladies! Thanks for thinking of us - Dolly & Claire - hope your beans are thriving well! x
I've been away on a work training course in Telford - it was one of those ones where we were put in groups and you spend a lot of time with each other (14-18 hours per day!) so there was absolutely no time for MD! As I was ov'ing this week and H has gone to a stag in Dublin on Friday evening, we missed each other so no chance of any BD'ing in the good fertile time thus we're out this month. Looks like we might be out for the next two months too but we'll see. I'm ok with it as I need to get my weight & exercise plan in place as I've been really bad lately! Also, we did have another chat about our TTC efforts and hopefully have some ideas about how to increase our sex drives.....
For everyone else, I've commented on the catch-up thread x
