New beginnings!!

I’m back!! Sorry I have been MIA for a while, things have been quite hectic!! I wasn’t on at all this weekend (it was my 29th birthday!!) and missed the good news of Anna’s BFP!! Great news Anna, you know i’m still praying for ya!! Go and show her some love ladies!! Also, I was so pleased to hear that Sticky bun has two, yes two little stickies in there, woo hoo chicken, praying for you too!!

On a sad note, Carrie is really needing your love right now, please go give her some, also JJ, we are all worried about you sweetie and please know that you are in our prayers always.

My little friend Bumble has also hit the 15 week mark and I must say that I am so thrilled that things are going well, I think of you all the time my friend and wish that we were closer…

In other news, I am happy to announce that all it took for our not so loved auntie to make her appearance, was a call to Vita*lab…she came running like so mad women!! So, I am on CD 8 of our DIY cycle today, let the games begin!! I normally ovulate around CD12 (presuming this cycle will be normal) so I am waiting for EWCM to make a show and then I’ll start with the bicarb…lovely, lovely stuff I tell ya!! I am not temping or POAS or on any OPK’s so I’m winging it which will be a new one for me….wish me luck!!

I am still in two minds as to what to do with the progesterone so I need to actually phone a nurse at Vita*lab and ask for some advice, you see I don’t want to not take it because I’m worried that I *might* fall pregnant and lose it because I’m not on progesterone but also don’t really want to be on progesterone because it delays AF and I’d have to test every month and ya’ll know I just love POAS!!! We’ll see I suppose…

I am also happy to report that I am feeling much much much better lately, I think that waiting for AF played a big part in the way I was feeling, I feel like I can finally breathe again, it’s almost like I can finally close that chapter, the failed IVF chapter that felt like it was never going to end. I’m starting over now, with renewed hope and strength. I have decided that this next year of my life is going to be the one, I will be pregnant before I am 30!!!

Thank you all for all your kind words during my difficult weeks and I love you all for being so special, I honestly don’t know what I would have done without the great support for all you guys. Hugs for all of you.

I have been a bit slack with comments and blog reading lately but I am trying desperately to catch up, but please know that I am thinking of you all as you travel the road to your different destinations!! Here’s to new beginnings!!

Hey Tam,
Thanks for the invite, I actually got worried there for a bit not knowing how you were doing.
1. Happy Belated Birthday Chicken, I hope that this life year you will be blessed with that little baby you so want.
2. Glad to hear that you are in a better place, I hope that it will stay that way.
3. Holding thumbs for the diy cycle... who knows... stranger things have happend. ;-)
4. Could you please ask BUMBLE to invite me as well. cbenzien@telkomsa.net
It feels like there is something missing if I can't follow the goings on in the lives of my cherished bloggy friends.

Welcome back!
Glad to hear you are on the upswing. Fingers crossed for your DIY cycle.

Happy belated birthday! It goes without saying that I wish you tons of luck with this DIY cycle. I truly do hope it works for you guys.

Also, I'm glad that you are starting to feel a little better. They say that time heals all wounds and while I think that's crap, it is true that the passing of time does make it sting a little less. I've been thinking of you and praying for you every day.

Oh, my dear Tam, you're so strong. Before you even talk about what you're up to in this post, you so lovingly connect the IF community to each other. Thank you so much for all the love and prayers. Please know that I'm pointing all my prayers in your direction. Happy belated birthday! I hope for you a year of nothing but happiness, peace, love, and success (particularly in the baby department!)
How can it be that across such a huge physical distance, I feel so close to you? It absolutely makes my heart so sad that we aren't celebrating BFPs together, but have faith silly Chicken, your turn is soon.

Kate said...

Happy birthday! I'm glad you are feeling better and wish you lots of luck for this DIY cycle. :)

Bumble said...

So so happy you're feeling better little lady. I'll be praying that you and Frank show them doctorly types and do it all by yourselves this month. I hope you had a wonderful birthday, I was thinking about you lots. xxx

Chas said...

I wasn't around for your IVF journey, but I do wish you the best of luck w/ doing this w/out the aide of medical technology this month, and if that doesn't work, with whatever avenue you try in the future.

Thank you so much for your caring and your kind comments. They really mean so much.

I am so pleased to read that you are feeling a bit better. I don't think we can appreciate the effect hormones really have on our moods sometimes. I know after any loss I have a real big second crash just before the first AF turns up. It is a little easier when you know what is causing it I think.

I hope this DIY cycle is fun. Remember that? and maybe even positive too. Thanks again x

Also, happy birthday! I love your new outlook and think that this is going to be your year!

thinking of you!
