Shell, that really was rude of your doctor.Obviously, you are in a healthy weight range. Why on earth would she say that to you?
Welcome beingmommy, you will a great deal of support here.
Litmama, happy birthday. It sounds like you were showered with love, with is so nice. And yes, a gluten free chocolate cake can be really delicious.
I felt a little sad at first when I turned 45 last November, but now it just feels like it is a number. I still hold out some hope for a healthy egg, and ultimately a healthy baby.
We've had a really tough week, mainly with illnesses. Last week my eldest daughter had the flu, and my DS and DD also had a cold. I had a really sore throat for a couple of days, but kept working, and felt so tired.Then my DH got a terrible toothache, was in pain all weekend, and now is on antibiotics and strong painkillers. I feel like I've been keeping everything going at home, as well as nursing everyone, and am starting to run out of sympathy! Meanwhile, I keep hoping I am pregnant(and feeling very hormonal, tired and cranky), but this morning's test (at 10 dpo) looks to be negative. I think I can see the slightest faint line - but I have had that happen month after month, so until it is a blarringly obvious line, I say it's negative.
I have very tender breasts, had a funny taste in my mouth yesterday (which could only be cured by a hot chocolate!), but my temps aren't very high (though still above cover line), and I feel the hope seeping away.
It's really hard to stay positive about ttc month after month. Sorry to be a downer.I kind of feel if this month is a bust, then it's time to stop trying.
Now I'm worried about DH's sperm after taking codeine for days and antibiotics - does that mean his swimmers will be affected?And for how long?
