  • poll: What's the ideal season to have a baby if you could choose?

    Winter - Holiday babies are the best!

    Spring - Pretty weather for those stroller walks!

    Summer - My baby would be a beach baby!

    Fall - Pumpkins, leaves changing and newborns are a great combo!

    @maggierose:  Oh hun… somehow ‘sorry’ doesn’t do justice to what I want to say to you… my really feels so small , so squeezed for you right now. I’m SO sorry … I can’t imagine what it must’ve felt like to have that amazing feeling, only to get that snatched away!! I’m so mad at CB right now!! I mean, I’d one million times over prefer a test that is so strict that I have a risk of getting a BFN when I’m KU than one that’s uber sensitive that could give you  a BFP when you’re not!!! It’s like they have no idea what sort of feelings they’re toying with here…

    Hon, again, I’m very very sorry… my heart and thoughts go out to you… And your day WILL come!!! Adn this time the feelign will STAY!

    @ShellVee:  I got interesting advice recently regarding BD and this was it ‘fuck for fun’!!! Seriously!!! And this was in a professional capacity!! It did make me realise that the last time I did that was before my wedding!!! When I realised that I decided we should actually try that (while I secretly check FF!!). Definitely try that ED over the hols!!! That can be your way to destress πŸ˜‰ So has AF arrived then? At least youll hit fw over the hols. I really hate those people that hit -4/5 once and get preggo… Yes I know those people!!! Grrr!!!

    Ah no, it’s a bit different. All the children I teach return to mainstream classes (some with classroom assistants). We used to do it your way though. You must be on holidays now… Yay!!! Im three hours and a Christmas play (cue stress!) away!!!

    @maggierose:  Oh my god, I’m so sorry. I had a similarish experience and I was crushed but I can’t even imagine what it is like at this stage in the TTC process. I really hope that your still get your BFP this month or very soon in the future. It’s so bloody hard already without this crap. I’ve had lots of issues with their fertility monitor (and had to go back to basics!) so wonder about their products. Let us know what they say. Xxx

    @phoebephoebo:  woo you must be in holidays now too πŸ™‚ enjoy the break, I know we all we’ll and truly deserve it πŸ™‚ I have done something similar to what you are talking about we call it support or remedial here. I basically used to take the students that were struggling and/or failed the standardised yr 3 & 5 testing and try to catch them back up – thou I used to only have them for 2 days a week, small groups then integrating back into mainstream the following year hoping we’d done enough. 

    We had our Xmas/end of year lunch today for work and I got a nice bunch of flowers and a voucher for a massage so I should be well and truly relaxed after that, hopefully I can book in straight after Xmas πŸ™‚ maybe I should leave workplaces more often hehehe

    Yeah to be 100% honest it sometimes feels like we don’t BD for fun anymore – not as often as before anyway and usually we only do when we are on breaks/weekends away together – so yeah having a few weeks off together really can only help… I hope one day sex becomes more for fun again not just a chore – it’s ridiculous thou because if we had kept up our normal stress free sex lives we wouldn’t have needed to keep track but because we had no time together and things were crazy we kinda needed to “schedule” or we would have missed the FW most months . Now I’m back to subbing (after the Hols) I’m hoping my drive will pick up again too…

    @phoebephoebo:  Hey ladies.. I’m with you on the BD topic… it’s funny how a lot of people that give you the ‘relax’ chat specially when it comes to BD. But at the same time I’m like… well, unless i’ll get pregnant through immaculate conseption, I don’t see how , in my current life, I could not track when I BD. DH and I both travel for work, and you can only get pregnant in a window of 5-6 days in a cycle. So if we’re both away, we could easily miss it… And to make matters more interesting bc my O seems to like to change every cycle, if I didn’t track, I’d have no chance of getting KU. I often thing how wonderful it’ll be that when I’m KU I can actually have sex whenever I want without all the crazy tracking…

    On other (venting) news… AF came yesterday. No surprise there as I’d POAS on DPO 10 and had BFN. So same day AF came I got news from my best friend that she’s KU of her second (btw, she got KU of the first after having sex ONCE and had no difficulty with this one either). I wasn’t too surprised with the news and am very happy for her. So tbh I’m not bitter with the news… now what DID make me bitter is…Okay, she’s is THE LOVELIEST of friends, super supportive and always thinks of me, but it’s funny how CLULESS people that don’t struggle to get KU are… So here are her 2 precious comments:

    1) “I HATE being pregnant.” Now, I know what she means, it’s bc she gets super sick, and I know she LOOOOOVES being a mother and having babies but her pregnancy experience really is difficult. Now, I understand that and just bc I’m struggling doens’t mean others shoudl feel happy to be sick, Buuuuuttt how clueless can someone be to actually say these SPECIFIC words (rather than just ‘I do have a tough time in the beginning and I feel ill and it sucks’) to someone who’s struggling to get pregnant.

    2) “Oh we decided it was now or never bc I’m 36 now and I wouldn’t want to be pregnant at 37/38”. Now ladies, I’m 34.5 and If I want to have a second child (which I do), unless i have twins, I will MOST definitely be KU at 37… So coming from the same person who says “i should just trust that things will happen when they need to happen”, it’s funny that she would express how she doesn’t want to be pregnant at 37 when life has left me no choice.

     

    sigh….

     

    merry xmas to me!

    @ShellVee:  Yay! On holidays now too πŸ™‚ I think my body caught up with my mind this week. I’ve felt exhausted… Nearly sick. I think tomorrow will be spent in bed but its all good because I’m on my hols!!!

    Ah yeah, it’s learning support or resource here. Same thing realrebut resource kids get it for the full time they’re in the school. Do you prefer subbing? It’s hard to get subbing in Ireland as demand is greater than supply. 

    Oh lovely, a well deserved and needed massage. That should be lovely. Thinking of doing one soon too πŸ™‚

    @proudcatlady:  I definitely don’t bd for fun anymore. Shellvee, I get the impression you’ve a better drive than me but id be happy with once a month!! We’d never get pregnant on that!! Though I am going to make FFF my new years resolution!!! God the number of people who’ve heard about my sex life recently is ridiculous!! They include you guys, my counsellor, my acupuncturist, my friends, my sister, my mother!!!! Lol!!

    @proudcatlady:  Im so sorry about AF and about your friend. Talk about timing. It’s especially hard during AF. I’m sorry she’s being so thoughtless/insensitive. I’ve really found over the past few weeks that people really say the wrong thing and don’t even think about what they’re saying. Maybe gently say something to her if she continues to make comments. It really isn’t fair on you.

    Im heading out now but I’m going to have to tell you about my great acupuncture session and some good advice he gave me πŸ™‚

    @phoebephoebo:  thanks hun… something tells me she won’t complain to me again.. bc when I spoke to her, she had to hang up after the news (she lives in NYC so normally I speak to her on skype or on the phone). so we didn’t get to talk about me… so next time I’m sure she’d ask about me, and I’d straight off tell her I continue to struggle and how down I get when AF visits… i think it’ll put her careless nagging into perspective very quickly!

    @hardtoconcentrate:   Hi love!!!! Wow, I’m sorry I’ve been MIA and haven’t been on here in so long! I’m pretty good. Just chuggin along. Kinda sorta got a period (really just dark dark spotting), started another round of clomid but I’m not completely sure what my body is doing right now. I think it’s giving clomid the finger. But how about you?! How’s everything? What are you guys doing for the holidays??
