Good evening fellow oldies,
Good news all round. Maybe this is finally turning into the
super positive thread that we hoped for.
JB - WOW, wow, wow, 8 eggs is fantastic I think, especially
seeing you were convinced of only four or five at the most!
7 fertilized is also good, no? Mmmm maybe you need to be
more positive without being actually hopefull IYKWIM. That's
what I have been struggling with and also trying to remember
that bad thoughts and comments go out into the universe. I
am always catching myself whinging out things like "It'll
probably take me a year to get pg" or "I'll never get pg".
Minni - Well that's good news about the heartbeat. Sounds
like things are looking much more positive. Now you've got
me curious, what CM change did you have (damn, now I am
filled with hope, naughty!)? About pre-natal testing I guess
the important thing to ask is what you would do if you found
out there was something wrong. Even if you would keep your
baby no matter what, it might be a good thing to be prepared,
but it's a very personal decision. Maybe your DH is right, you
will be less stressed having no tests, but maybe not knowing
will make you more stressed? My awakening (from the
perspective of worst case scenario) if it helps, has been to
discover that there are plenty of things that can go wrong that
there are no tests for and I am constantly annoyed at
pregnancy literature that focuses only on testing as if that is
some kind of guarantee. You know, pass the tests = perfect
happy ending, which doesn't really reflect reality. Also there
is so much that the doctors don't know, miss (in my case), or
just don't understand. I don't believe age is a problem, just
life - it's always a gamble. It's an interesting time being
pregnant, it's like the first steps of parenting, making
decisions that have huge consequences for someone else's
life. (Sorry if I am raving, touchy subject...)
Girolama - yay, Titch is sitting tight. How do you like the new
pad now, horny wench?
Jill - 2ww is boring hey?
Jo - LOL at your DS and the bucket. Maybe you won't mind if
you fall (pg not in the loo) now that the blood pressure is
hi to everyone I missed
