Hello everyone!
Wow it's been months since I even logged in! Where has the time gone!?
So what's been happening....I've got a job! I work 2 days a week and it's term time only! It's a fantastic opportunity and I feel very lucky. The hours are flexible so I can change my days for sports day etc.
This has meant J started nursery. It was awful, took him months to settle, I was almost at the point I thought I'd have to quit my job!
He's settled now but I'm.not overly happy with the nursery to I'm looking to move him to preschool as soon as he's 3.
Back in March I went for a smear test, my first in 7 years! I really didn't realise it had been so long. I went to the Dr about an injury I had got from from donating blood and she noticed it was way overdue. Anyway a few weeks later I get a call to go to hospital for a colposcopy as I had cin-3 cells. These were removed under General aneasthtic a week or 3 later. I bleed for 6 weeks and that has totally thrown all exercise out of the window and I'm slowly gaining weight! Planning to join running club again tonight though!
We've been so busy with holidays, camping days out etc that that year is just disappearing!
J was refered for a hearing test and has glue ear. We are on the waiting list for temporary hearing aids. The other option was grommets which I said no as I don't want him having an op but I may change my mind. We've been to speech therapy once as he can only say about 10 words and they aren't clear at all. It was a pretty awful experience. I found her really patronising!

As for potty training we are no where near! The lack of speech doesn't help as he will struggle to communicate when he needs to go!

Really hope yo keep in touch a bit more often xxx

Hey all

Sorry I also have neglected the site for a bit. Life gets in the way I guess.

Jasper really sorry to hear about the results of the smear. Glad it all got caught nice and early and you could get the treatment. Hope J’s speech therapy helps too and his glue ear improves. My friends LB had grommets in a few months back - I think he was in and out of hospital in about 8 hours. Scary to have a child have a GA though I know. L’s terrified me when she had a birth mark reduced but she doesn’t remember a thing (just me who does lol!) congrats on the job! And looks like you had a fab camping trip from Facebook.

How is everyone else?

We have been on holiday in our caravan but it was a bit of a disaster as it was the really really hot week which isn’t great when camping plus we all got a tummy bug so that was not fun in a confined space!

Back to work now which is so relentless - I really wish I could move but the hours are so flexible I would struggle to find something else like it I think.

E is good - it took two months but the potty training is pretty much done other than at night of course. I honestly did not think we’d make it so sympathies as I know some of you are not having it easy. E is so feisty though I am struggling at the moment with consistency over discipline especially as L is also playing up as it’s the summmer holidays. It’s exhausting!

Anyway have a nice weekend everyone xx

Morning ladies,

Jasper great to hear from you and sorry about the recent health problem. Your job sounds perfect for your needs and great to have some adult company. Hope the summer hols aren’t feeling too long. We are back home for 2 weeks which is so lovely seeing friends and family. We have rented. House for a week on the coast so kids are having a ball going crabbing and playing at the beach.

Net I know what you mean about work being frantic. I’ve been temp promoted for last 3 months so I’ve been doing double shifts and all sorts covering for my boss and of course doing my own job too. He’s back on 20th which is a bit fitting as he’s the worst boss ever
wEnglbut trying to be positive and hope I’ll go back to a bit more normal hours.

Been having a few health problems recently and doc thinks I may have gall stones or a liver problem. My diet has been dreadful recently not eating all day and then grabbing some crap when I finally get home late. Has been hard as never seem to see my DH these days which is why this holiday has been lovely. I’m waiting for some urgent scans. Just hoping everything is ok!!

I’ve actually been feeling really lonely recently as with being so busy with work and kids I haven’t managed to find any new friends in England. I find making friends quite difficult as I am so private but miss having those 2 or 3 friends that have known me for years.

Sorry for the moan but just feeling a bit flat and unwell I guess !!

Sorry to hear you are feeling lonely Heather. It's so hard making friends as an adult....I always marvel at the way kids make friends! They will just go up to another child ask their name and age and become best friends in minutes! Sounds like a lovely holiday you had.
As for having adult company at work it's not always the case. I work for a small company, there's just the 2 of us! I have an office in a small shared office space so some days there's other people around but we all work for different companies and some days I done see another soul!!! I am really enjoying it though.

Net a tummy bug in a caravan sounds a hotific! Thankfully our bug had passed by the time we went camping! We are going again in a few weeks so expect rain that weekend!

I'm surviving the holidays so far. National Trust is my saviour! We have loads in our area and lots if my friends are members so we set up camp for a few hours and let the kids run free! B was so tired from yesterday's outing he slept over 14 hours! In his 8 years I don't thinkhe's ever done that! It was his birthday last week, crazy to thinkit was all that time ago that we had treatment and I first joined this site!

We are having the morning at home today and off to a National Trust this After noon!

Hope you are all well xx

Glad you had a nice break Heather.

Anyone else utterly exhausted by the school holidays?! It's just so full on. We've been really busy and still lots more planned!

On a plus side the last 3 nights J has slept in his own bed all night...Only taken nearly 3 years!!! Have to admit I do miss the cuddles! X

Quick question...in the desperate hope that somebody comes on soon...

Have you been prescribed HCG trigger shot for FET? I always have in the past and this time they said they have changed their protocol as it didn’t show any increase in pregnancies. But I said if there is no detrimental affect I’d still like to, consultant prescribed it and I have it in my fridge waiting to go for 9pm tonight...not sure whether to do it or not xx

Hi dusky, I guess I'm a little late with my reply but I've had 2 fets and never had a trigger shot. What would it be for? I would have thought as the embryo had already been created there would be no need to release any eggs? Sorry that's not much help!

How is everyone else? I've been reading but never time to post. We moved house last month and things have been a bit chaos! R starts preschool on 20th September. I can't believe how big my baby has got. I could cry at the thought of him going to preschool :-(

Hope you all are good xx

Thanks Ashatar, I did it, it triggers the egg release if there are any but it also boosts the uterus ready to receive the embryo, increases blood flow and thickens the lining more. Who knows...theybsaid it wouldn’t do any harm so I did it...

It is frightening how quickly they grow isn’t it, he will have have a wail of a time of course, it’s us that find it hard :) Hope you’re settling well into your new house.

Hi ladies,

Sorry I’ve been awol been having a really hard few weeks with some very scary prospects about Harry’s health that has been awful to deal with and wait results. Thankfully the worst they’ve mentioned so far is unlikely given blood results but he’s waiting a head MRI and loads of genetic testing. Never thought I’d be so happy if someone said he just has mild autism!! But far more preferable than some of things could be wrong with him

Ashatar hope first day at preschool goes well and you are ok!! How’s the new house?

Hi to everyone else. Hope your tx is going well Dusky xx

Hi all
Sorry have been away so long!

Heather you poor thing - that sounds so worrying. I do hope the test results all come back ok. Lots of love

Ashastar how did R do at preschool?

Dusky I have had two FETs that went to ET ( and BFP) and never had a trigger shot. Good luck with tx!

Hi pip hope the house move went ok?

House moving must be catching as we are also moving! In the process of getting contracts exchanged right mow. Dreading having to pack!

All ok here. Girls are good and L is enjoying being back at school. Sorry haven’t been on, time just runs away!

Hi everyone,

I'm so sorry for not keeping in touch more. Moving house and R starting preschool has just meant things have been hectic!

Heather I'm sorry to hear you're having such a worrying time with H. I hope you don't have long to wait for the mri and everything is ok.

Dusky, I saw on one of the other posts that you've had a bfp but worried about low hcg. I really hope it all works out for you. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Pip, how is the new house? It's crazy trying to get everything sorted, isn't it?

Net, good luck with your move! Hope it isn't too stressful!

R started preschool 2 weeks ago and is absolutely loving it! He seems to have instantly become more grown up and independent which is great but also makes me a little bit sad! Managed to get him potty trained with literally days to spare although he's still having the odd number 2 accident which I don't know how to resolve. Overall though he's doing great.

I've finally got my review appointment for my last failed treatment in 2 weeks time. DH and I are seriously considering a new full cycle. The only thing really causing us to hesitate is the money. It's not a great time when we've just bought a new house but we just aren't ready to give up on giving R a sibling just yet.

Hop everyone is ok. Miss all the chats we used to have on here xx

Thanks so much Ashatar, absolutely petrified atm, levels are so low, have another blood test next Monday and a scan in two weeks time....

Glad R is loving preschool. Very exciting re maybe another cycle, it is sooo expensive though isn’t it.

Heather, how is Harry doing?

Hope everyone else is really well xxx

Hi ladies :)

How are we all?

My little F aka the devil child is 3 a week today haha!!!
Need some advice on potty training if Any one can help?
He is not interested in the slightest, he does the occasional wee/poo on the toilet when we put him on there, but nothing consistent at all.
I honestly can't remember how I started potty training Z, complete mind blank, the only difference this time is I don't want to put a potty out as worried T will just try and play with it, we have a downstairs loo so was hoping to just get him going straight to that instead of a potty.
But just no clue how to get him interested Haha!! He's such a stubborn child too, I got him some pants thinking it may get him interested but nothing, he tells us after he's done a poo etc in his nappy.
Any advice greatly appreciated ladies xxx

Hey!
Wow can’t believe our babies are almost 3!
So with E the one thing that cracked potty training was a hit of peer pressure at nursery. Is F at pre school now? Plus some good old fashioned bribery in the form of chocolate buttons and stickers. It took months mind you. we got there eventually. Oh and my husband made a poster and stuck it on the underside of the loo seat of a smiling face ( Mr Toilet!) who was happy when she used the toilet. Sounds ridiculous and I always forgot to tell guests about it so they probably thought we were nuts but hey ho! We didn’t use a potty either.
Good luck and hope F has a fab birthday x

Hi to everyone! E is 3 on Saturday. Cannot believe it. X
