We're testing for lead in our basement, and therefore my blood. Oy.

How us everyone else? Oxford, fx for you! And Chuord, fx for a sticky baby!

Oh Primal, what a beautiful little bub!! Congrats!

Chuord I am keeping you in positive thoughts and hoping that this little bean snuggles in tight! Yay on the progesterone numbers! That sounds great, unmedicated. In all honesty, that is a bit similar to my early loss...my numbers went down and my tests kept getting lighter gradually (but I did have more of a drop in betas than yours and they started wayyyy low like 12, AND my progesterone was only 8) So don't give up hope. I am crossing fingers and toes for you!!!!!! Keep that Zen positive attitude of yours!

Welcome to new ladies!! I will have to catch up on personals later. It has been busy...getting DD ready for State Cheer competition and going to stay overnight 2 nights for it this weekend. I was planning to leave DS with Daddy (first time ever being away from me overnight) but he caught a last minute reprieve because DH has to work so little cutie pie gets to tag along. He loves the excitement so he will have fun. We are sharing a hotel with another mom and daughter and driving together so it will be one big crazy fun party (I think). It's our first out-of-town competition. Plus hubby has had a lot of work going on so I have been doing a lot of his errands and tasks that I can help with.

Hope everyone is doing great and keep the faith Chuord!!!!

Wengrin - Wow! State competition! That's so cool! You must be so proud of your daughter. It took a lot of hard work to get there, I'm sure. Good for her! Have fun! smile.gif

Primal, beautiful scan, well done mummy!!

Chuord, glad to see you're holding your zen. That can only help now there is a baby to look after.

Wengrin- your competition sounds ace. Weldone dd! Let us know if they win!

Yammas- where are you in your cycle?

Faith - hope you are enjoying your growing bump?

I've been quiet because the hormones have been hitting me hard. I can feel the difference now my hormones falling to AF on Saturday. This while month has been like sticking my finger in the plug socket! Everything has been magnified and now I feel exhausted. I'm fearful of doing it all again next month. Hopefully my body will not be so extreme on the second run through. I'm just starting to feel myself again and coming out of hopelessness.

Hi Oxford - huge hugs... It's the roller coaster ride from hell to get to heaven... (No offense to anyone) they always say it's the journey that's the learning bit, and I guess it's fair to say that because of the lows all of us will enjoy the highs so much more...
I'm emotionally in the same place (but trying to hold my zen and hope) the specialists nurse yesterday told me it was likely to be a chem and to call her when I start... Despite that I'm hoping... Your AF hasn't started yet has it? So there's still hope xxx

Thanks Ladies, yes I am really proud of my girl. It is a great, positive outlet to channel all of that energy of hers! She has ADHD, and she used to not be able to sit still....and she had always been so bright but last year when standardized times tests came into play, especially in math, she was not on grade level. I was so used to her being above grade level. So we knew that she needed some help. So we started her on ADHD medication (controversial I know, and we struggled with it as well) but between the low dose medication and her focus on this sport that she absolutely loves, she has made A's in math and science...she has always been an extremely fluent reader so she reads on a 6th grade level but this has helped her self confidence so much. She would come home crying after failing the timed math tests (simple addition and subtraction but they had to finish 60 questions in 3 minutes! It would break her heart. Now she makes A's this year doing 100 multiplication facts in 5 min. So I really feel like the medicine helps her. Until she can learn the organization skills and study skills (and how to tube out distractions) that we learn as we get older. Then we can take her off the medication. Hopefully soon. She is already growing leaps and bounds in her maturity. So that will help.

She took ballet and dance for 3 years since she was 3 1/2, but was never totally passsionate about it. Once she went to a summer camp at this cheer/tumbling gym she was hooked. She absolutely loves it and never grows tired of it or wants to skip a day. She recently had strep and 102.5 fever and still went to her practices because she knew they had a competition that weekend and she didn't want to miss!! She is so dedicated. (I wanted her to stay home of course and not infect the other children, but it's the gym's policy that if you miss a practice the week before competition then you can't compete that weekend) craziness....a little extreme. But it is building character and perseverance in her. I am really pleased with it overall.

So enough about me, Chuord you have been on my mind and I have prayed that you will defy the odds and hold on to this pregnancy. If not, I think that conceiving and getting to implantation is a huge step. Chemical pregnancies are natures way of taking care of a mishap during the fertilization and chromosom formation stage (from what I understand) and that is just bad luck. So if that is the case then on to the next month and fingers crossed for you my dear!!

Take care everyone- Oxford big hugs to you and your hormones :-) I totally feel your pain. I know exactly how brutal that ride can be. But I know you'll find the courage to stick your finger back into that crazy light socket for another go!

hug.gif
