I don't know how to make the text all silver though.
Off to find the old thread, be back shortly.

Can I take bronze too?
Lisa, sorry your chart is up the creek Remember it is not foolproof and your cycle is not over yet. Did you do any ovulation tests and have any positives.
Chrissy, sounds like an emotional and productive Drs visit. At least the dr seems to be very thorough. Hopefully it is not PCOS at all and just your body sorting itself out. My BF has PCOS and just got pregnant through her first IVF attempt. But she told me clomid works for 75% of people (don't quote me on that figure though).
Now, I always had a fear of being infertile, as had really severe PMT pains at different times that no one ever got to the bottom of. I did lots of research and pretty much came to the conclusion that if I had money I could have a baby. There are just so many different forms of assisted conception around nowadays. I acutally think you will be fine, and think it is a great sign that your body held onto your angel baby for as long as it did, as so many people miscarry early on.
Jorgo, there is no news of more tests. Have you restrained or got a BFN?
Kahlia, enjoy your 'lemonades' AT least you can safely drink and enjoy yourself.
Well, my day was an effort. The anti biotics made me feel sick, but that is probably something to do with having to take them at least 30 minutes before going to bed, but then having to take them every 4 hours. Like I am going to stay up at 2am for 30 minutes. SO will do my own prescribing tonight (just ignore that Chrissy). At least DD is a little better and lasted most of the day in cc before they got me to pick her up. Think I am in for a quiet weekend.

booby prize for me
I have only done one OPK and it was negative, I thought I had O'd so didnt try any more. Will do one tomorrow.
Posted 28 March 2008 - 11:35 PM
Meh! What comes after a booby prize, the wooden spoon?!
Just came back from dinner (yes it was a late one) and DH surprised me with 2 presents.
1.) a clothes line! He installed it this evening as I was out AND he got the height right!
2.) a BBT thermometer So it's time for me to learn charting 101.
I must have been whinging a fair bit the past week cos he sent me an SMS saying that he hoped I had a good time tonight and he would spoil me the whole weekend to make up for my crappy day (apart from dr also had blood test and I think they punctured my vein cos I have a hard bruise like a golf ball )
Just had to share.
Posted 29 March 2008 - 06:00 AM
Chrissy - ouch on the vein, i hate blood test at the best of times and am thankful that i have easy veins.
Your DH sounds like a sweety, welcome to the charting club. If you want some help join chart chatter they are good and most of us are in there
Posted 29 March 2008 - 09:05 AM
j99 I don't know very many antibiotics that require you to take every 4 hours AND 30 minutes before lying down... PM me if you like and I can hopefully assist.
lisacat I hope you are feeling a bit better? and that AF hasn't shown her face to you yet?
jorgo hope the open went well
My DH is the best DH in my world. I am itching to do laundry but the forecast is for rain today Might go and do something romantic like brunch at the lake.
Posted 29 March 2008 - 12:35 PM
got another hour till the open
... waiting boredly
and is it bad i had the caramel sauce from a maccas sundae for breakfast?
Posted 29 March 2008 - 12:40 PM
DOH! I knew I shouldn't have checked this thread. Now I want a sundae! Actually what I want is sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce...where is the drooling icon???
Two weeks ago it was 40 degrees and right now it's 10 degrees I am turning the heating on!
Posted 29 March 2008 - 12:53 PM
Jorgo, I have just come back from maccas . I only had a frappa (not sure how you spell it ). I use the excuse that they have the only undercover playground in town as justification
Chrissy, your DH sounds like a sweetie. I hope you get a lovely day to do washing, and lunch by the lake sounds lovely.
Lisacat, if you have 40 opk you should be using them! I made the mistake of using them sparingly and did not count for the fact that I might o early or late, so I would recommend using them a few days after AF through to whenever you get a positive.
I am hopeful I o'ed 2 days ago, though my last 2 temps have been taken a bit later than usual, so hard to tell. Plus I don't think I have had the right CM, so will just have to wait and see.
Posted 29 March 2008 - 02:32 PM
yeah the only thing is i didnt go to maccas to get the sundae for breakfast
it was left over sauce from last nights treat Dh got me on the way home- he then took me to the pokies down the road for midnight nachos ( yummy) and he proceeded to win 65$
Posted 29 March 2008 - 04:32 PM
Woohoo for your DH jorgo! I hope you get something nice from the $65! I love nachos at the best of times but I think they taste particularly good late at night.
Posted 29 March 2008 - 08:04 PM
Did you sell your house Jorgo?
Chrissy, my inside herbs have started sprouting, but the outside ones aren't doing anything.
Lisa, what grade prac are you teaching?
So have you guys told others that you are ttc and how is it working for you (I sound like Dr Phil ). First time around I did not tell anyone, but am taking a different approach and telling some friends. It's been quite good able to talk about it, though a few people will ask every few weeks if we are pregnant, probably forgetting each cycle is 4 weeks.
Posted 29 March 2008 - 08:36 PM
nah had 5 more lots thru today
waiting for some paper(ie a contract) to come thru hopefully mondayish
i've just been waiting for it and watching the online entertainment

Jorgo - sounds like you are having a busy night. Good luck on those contracts.

Posted 30 March 2008 - 07:37 AM
So have you guys told others that you are ttc and how is it working for youNope, but it's not hard for people to work out that we are now TTC our #1, if they knew of our previous pregnancy and subsequent m/c. Thanks to MIL, it's about 10 extra people who know.
So did anyone do the earth hour thing yesterday? We didn't really but I did turn off the computer and read a book instead. Unfortunately I fell asleep at 9pm and didn't wake up til 11pm! So I ended up sleeping quite badly last night (shouldn't ever nap in the evening!)
Off to the gym to wake up a bit.
Posted 30 March 2008 - 10:10 AM
J99 - yes im going to start to do that next cycle. im going to do the sperm meets egg method. I didnt use them much this month as I only got them half way through cycle and then I had ppl reading my charts and saying I O'd as of day 16 so didnt think I neeeded to test
I am doing this prac in a preschool. My course is for preschool to grade 2. So will do older pracs later in my course.
I told everyone that we were TTC back in november, everyone was really good about it. Noone really comments on it except one of my sisters who is very clueless when it comes to TTC even though she has 3 kids.
Jorgo - hopefully you will sell your house. midnight nachos sounds yummy. Have you seen the new mintslice sundaes at maccas.
Chrissy - I did earth hour in a roundabout way we were at the footy so our lights were off anyway.
AFM - Im on cd32 and no AF yet. FF still cant detect O so ill be testing on wed if no AF by then
Posted 30 March 2008 - 05:48 PM
ooh lisacat I will be and on Wednesday then. I admit that I had a squizz at your chart, but can't make sense of it. I guess I'm a real novice hey!
Mint slice sundaes? Time to head to Maccas!
Posted 30 March 2008 - 08:26 PM
Lisa, I went to maccas on Friday as I could not be bothered making lunch and saw the mint slice stuff advertised. Then went there on Saturday with some girls for coffee. I was all set to have a mint slice milkshake, but they had taken down all the signage and were not available. Ripped off
Hoping all goes well on Wednesday for you. I your chart too pretty much everyday!
Chrissy, I did not do earth hour. Mainly because I was home alone (well DD was in bed) and the idea of sitting by myself in the dark for an hour did not appeal. But must admit I try to be enviro friendly everyday, so did not feel too bad.
Posted 31 March 2008 - 11:16 AM
Please stop talking about ice cream - I really want one!!
Hope you have all had a great weekend, mine was busy with SIL hens night Saturday night and yesterday I cleaned the house and went and visiting family - organising brothers wedding ect
Posted 31 March 2008 - 01:14 PM
Hahaha all this talk of ice cream and I was sitting there eating a WHOLE easter bunny but I have good reason bloody real estate put our rent up 30 bucks a week not impressed we were having a hard enough time feeding ourselves at the moment let alone another 30 bucks out of pocket so have had a few tears and stuff and lots of confusion of what to do wish we could afford our own place at least we would feel better paying more as its for us not someone else. iykwim.
Sorry for that just pretty low at the moment.
Anyways I only have one more af before we ttc yay (hopefully we can afford it only would have to buy nappies have everything else) but am getting excited started to chart but couldnt be bothered looking at getting some opk's though, anyone find them good?
Oh also excited got Wiggles tickets this morning for me and my sis to take the kids to it was funny I had the biggest adrenalin rush buying them like it was this huge concert well it is for DD anyway.
Goodluck with testing Lisa I will cross everything for you.
Better get going I was looking up jobs so dont want to go back but if its needed.
Posted 31 March 2008 - 06:38 PM
Lol j99 so you mean you haven't even tried the mint slice sundae or milkshake yet? (Sorry Kahlia, last mention!)
Kahlia how was the hen's night? It must be wedding season there are just so many at the moment.
But must admit I try to be enviro friendly everyday, so did not feel too bad.I couldn't agree more j99. I think Earth Hour is a good idea in principle to encourage people to think about the environment but in terms of really making a difference to the environment, I don't think it works!
KatieBal sorry to hear about the rent raise. It does suck at the moment with everything being so expensive. I have definitely noticed that at the supermarket etc. I have had so many friends that have had to leave their homes this year to find another place to rent (either because of price hikes or because their landlord is selling). Hope you find something good for your work.
lisacat still got everything crossed.
Posted 31 March 2008 - 09:01 PM
Katiebel, I just put down an easter bunny 5 minutes ago
I hear you on the rent. We knew when moving here rents were mega expensive and thought we could make do with a unit. But if we stay, I want a house for more room, but more for a big yard, but 3 bedroom houses are $600 per week Just seems like such dead money.
Lisacat, best of luck for testing this week, will have to find your chart to have a sticky.
WAnt2bmum, no I have not had any mint slice maccas and now looks like I am not going to
My CM seems to be changing and I think I am about to o. DH is back on Wed, so hoping I can hang on for another day or 2....
Posted 01 April 2008 - 12:21 PM
How sad is this first I was eating a bunny yesterday now when I come on here I'm having a milo am being very naughty but at least I went to the gym this morning makes me feel a bit better
Oh my god I wouldnt think the rents would be that expensive over and up there j99. We pay 370 in syd for a 3 bedroom goodsized townhouse with a pretty big yard. But our adjoined nextdoor neighbours are only paying 350 and its exactly the same and same owner try and work that one out
Hope DH makes it home in time j99, I know its prob been asked before but may I ask what he does to make him go away all the time?
I so should be doing housework but just dont feel like it. Ok better go do it.
