Well, very high temp this morning, sort of hoping it means I ovulated but I was up at 5.30 to pee and it was quite a disturbed nights sleep (DH snoring!!), I guess tomorrow will tell a little better with the temp. I had said that I was going to do OPKs (in my 1st Sept post) but I decided against. I was thinking about it and they don't confirm ovulation, just that your body is trying to ovulate and I already know that I am trying to ovulate but not always acheiving so we decided to go with temping and regular dancing as the best way to stay relaxed but cover the bases!! Busy couple of days ahead in work, counting down to time off. Birthday looming and holiday looming - I'm in a good place right now although my brother has had an op and is recovering, my brother-in-law is in hospital and my sister-in-law is struggling with the last weeks of her pregnancy with worries about the baby so a lot on my mind. I'll try to update before heading off. :-)

Still getting a positive test, tested this morning again, the line is what I would call faint but definately stronger that when I first tested Sun morning. The Clear Blue test said 'Pregnant 1-2' which was good. The light cramps are quite off putting, and I have had light staining/spotting, even though I know it is common I am finding it worrying. Trying to stay positive though. I have an appointment with the nurse on Thursday so see what that brings. By my estimations I ovulated around day 7ish there was a rise in temp at day 14 which means when I got the positive test it was likely only 6 or seven days from implantation. Feels very earlier to be getting excited (although I really can't help myself being excited/amazed that this has even happened!). DH is pleased but being reserved about it, wants to take it a week at at time. Wow BFP! Doesn't feel real. :-)

Spoke to midwife and my GP. Being referred to the hospital because I am considered a mature mum, he says he will request Consultant care to start and that can be changed at a later date if thought unnecessary. I have made another appointment with the midwife for 4 weeks from now. A waiting game again, now for appointments!! Still spotting and a bit of a dip in temp today but I know it can got up and down so not stressing about that. Did another test this morning and it was positive, they still seem weak on the test strip but I think it is only 10 days ish. I'm happy to get the process started, just waiting to see what happens next. :-)

Not too many symptoms so far, but I am really struggling to stay asleep, although I am going to bed really early, 9.30ish. This morning it was 3.30am and I could not get back to sleep. I ended up reading my book until my eyes started to go together and falling asleep eventually with the light on must have been around 6am. Felt I was just over when the alarm went off to get up!!! Looking forward to the weekend. :-)

All is not well. Mon I started cramping and bleeding. Phoned for advice and the early pregnancy unit at the hospital gave me an appointment for Mon morn. They really don't listen, kept talking about implantation bleeding! Mon night the cramps were so bad they kept me from sleeping. Been bleeding since Tuesday, like a period. I've been resting so can't talk in terms of pads used as mostly coming away when at the toilet. Blood is bright red with some material in it, less than I would have expected but as I say I have been resting, I expect to see more when I start moving around more. Symptoms almost all gone, Boobs not sore to speak of, insomnia gone, cramps gone. Still have a little back pain and head sore but think that's from crying. The helpless feelings are the worst, just like you can't make yourself pregnant, when things start happening that are really scary, you have no control. :-( appoint on Mon will confirm either way I guess.

DH encouraged me to phone the midwife yesterday and long story short have been able to move my appointment with the hospital forward to tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have some sort of resolution to what is happening. The bleeding has stopped and turned into brown spotting. I am still having twinges in my lower abdomin don't know what to think. Had to go back to work today, really felt like there was no point putting it off. Less emotional today, maybe I'm just holding it together better. I'm preparing myself for the worst for tomorrow but I would really like to be surprised and it be a positive outcome.

We had our appointment on Sat at the hospital and cutting a long story short, there was nothing showing on the scan which indicated an early miscarriage. We were very upset and disappointment after waiting so long and then the excitement of the BFP, then for this to happen. But I guess thats how it goes sometimes. We had the weekend together which was great and now we'll just have to wait and see what my body does next!

So nothing much to report, just back on the herbals again, Ag Cas, Oil Even Prim, Multi vit. I have added Aspirin to the mix as I have read that can help, particularly at my age. Just a waiting game now, which I have discovered I am not good at!! :-)

I think I'm the only person left on here! Accept for visits from Kitten of course! When I go to chart on the board mine is the only one I can see! Where did everyone go - maybe they are all happily pregnant!! :-)

Still waiting. Thought I may have ovulated at the weekend had a low temp but it never went up so, no. Another low temp yesterday and higher today so watching to see what happens over next couple of days, although I was up at 4am to wee which could have knocked the temp up. Who knows. :-) looking forward to Christmas, been knitting some Christmas puddings, little ones you put sweets in. Going to get in the Christmas spirit this weekend when DH is off work and we have a chance to do some shopping together. :-)

Well despite AF arriving on Christmas Eve, had a great Christmas. Enjoyed being with the family. Felt a little sad after a full day with the two new arrivals from my DH side of the family but not terrible, just a feeling that I'm sorry we don't have. But didn't last long. Not sure what is going on with my body, but whats new!! Had a dip on day 4 and a rise after that but OF hasn't marked an ovulation. I have googled and it seems you can't have a temp rise without pogest which comes from an egg, that would seem to indicate that I have ovulated but I'm still not sure. We did BD but I'm not confident about anything anymore! Hay Ho I'm waiting again! :-)

Wondering if I have ovulated! I guess tomorrow will tell. Its such a difficult thing mentally to stay relaxed, I don't expect to ovulate given my visits to the Dr last year and yet when my temp goes down I dare to hope that this is it. So many times on previous cycles it goes up and down and doesn't happen, I end up so disappointed, yet all the time trying not to let it get to me since I have been told my body is slowing down. It also makes it really hard to get the timing right, hard enough at the best of times!! Well going into the weekend with mixed emotions and thinking I will try to stay busy to distract myself. Happy apart from all of that though! :-)

Well don't seem to have ovulated, back to the mountain landscape that are my charts now. I'm disappointed.

I must say I am looking forward to getting my black and white chart back, seeing that band of green along the bottom indicating the fertile window with each day passing and no change isn't doing much for my mind set! On a brighter note I reached my weight target the week before last and have maintained it this week, so I'm achieving something.
