Hi Pum, it's been a while, how are you? Thanks for the note, what have you been up to?
Pum, I appreciate your feedback! I'll try to do my painting/stripping work during and immediately after AF, then stop around o time. I was worried that the solvents could affect developing eggs too. Hopefully, that's not the case. Wishing you good luck too! Catherine
Pum, thanks for the response regarding paint and stripping chemicals. I've been curious, is the problem, these chemicals causing birth defects, caused from being inhaled or getting the solvents on your skin? I normally work outside and wear protective gloves, have worn a mask when sanding, but not sure what face mask would keep fumes out. Take care, Catherine, Kansas City
I finished ovulation either Monday night or Tues morning. I'm so sad. :( It's so hard to not try when you know you're totally ovulating! But at least I won't have to worry about POAS, I guess, and obsessing about every possible preg symptom! But next month no matter what, I am going to try! :-) I sure hope this is the month for you! I will be following everyone else especially closely this month to keep my mind off of me having to lose a month! Lots of super sticky baby dust to you!!!! :-)
You're so right about how hard it is to wait a month! I love this board so much because, during times like now, it really helps having women who understand. Asking a 42 year old woman to wait a month is asking the impossible! In the end, I did skip this month. I ovulated last night and we abstained. It was so hard. I wanted to cry. But I didn't want to make my bf feel bad when there isn't really anything he can do about it....Basically the decision was made after 3 chem preg's, 3 months in a row. Hormones are way off and need to be straightened out. I feel like I'm close to figuring out how to do that, and plan to be back TTC next month. Thank you for your note! It helps so much to talk to women who understand! :-)
Just a quick note to say hi! I am about 4 days behind you in the cycle! Hope it's our month! SSBD to you!
I LOVE New Zealand! I've traveled a good bit and I think it's probably the most beautiful place I've ever been to!
Hi pum.Thanks for your note.You are the first mum from NZ that I know of on this site-great stuff.Yes Rotorua is different from CHCH.Pete my partner had a job transfer (he is a skydiving instructor) as the Skydiving at Wigram airbase in CHCH closed down so had the option to move north or move to Queenstown,we choose Rotorua as cheaper to live up here.Also we have bought a lakeside home on the shores of Lake Rotoiti (Okere Falls) if you know the area,down the road from the rafting on the Kaituna river.Awesome spot.We are so happy here but do miss all my friends,family in CHCH.How's everything for you??? I had a read of your profile and I see you are trying for baby no.2.Good luck and keep me posted.Lots of Aroha xxx Erina :)
Thank you for all your kind words...the waiting is the worst, it will all be ok I hope! Thanks
Thank you !
It feel so good to hear an encouraging word. I panicked because nothing could be seen on the ultrasound
I just thought I'd check in with you to see how you're doing. Any luck yet?
Just wanted to send you some sticky baby dust. Hope this is your month. By the way, your son is beautiful! Good luck
Its okay....I just wanted you to know why I am so nervous.
Hi. I just saw your note about my son having surgery. This is by no means my first time dealing with this. My first Cooper had open heart surgery when he was two weeks old and underwent several procedures until he passed away at 7 wks. That is the reason why I am nervous. Thanks anyway.
I wanted to thank you for your post and tell you I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarriages. I am hoping that you do, indeed, join me in the TTC club very soon! I also hope that we both will be in the pregnancy club shortly thereafter!
Pum you are right it is a Seborrheic Keratoses. The doctor said unless I get a lot of them around the same time I do not have to be concerned with them. They can be removed for cosmetic reasons. He said many times they run in families. I think my Dad has them too.
Thank you Pum!
Thank you for your comment. I can sleep a little better tonight after looking it up online. I am going to have it looked at in the morning.
Thank you so much for your note. It was very nice of you. I did nurse my baby until he was about 3.5 months old. I am asking my Dr. for some more tests to rule out Multiple Myeloma which is what I think I have based on the research I have done. But your words really helped me. Thank you so much.

Just a quick note to say hi!
Thank you for your response!
I wanted to say that I had that sharp pain you described yesterday morning; but only in one of them...and still haven't gotten my period; do you think that the doctor's blood test is 100% right after 10 DPO? Just curious; I'm not going to get my hopes up, but I wanted to ask you that.
Hi thank you for the reply to my post. Um about me sleeping on a button. Well that is what I thought yet there was nothing around it bed in that shape. And like if you usually sleep on something over night doesn't it leave like an indent I'm your skin for about 1 hour or so. Once I woke up I looked at it under a low zoom microscope and it looks like that my blood was rushed to my outer skin. (similar to a hickey)
Thanks for the reply. She is going to the Dr. today.

Hi there. Just wanted to tell you i went to the doctor finally and it turns out that i have pneumonia. Guess that accounts for all my symptoms. Hope you're feeling better and have gotten checked out.
does your son take any medications? my son had horrible fears similar to what you describe. we discovered that his fear and anxiety was caused by the side effects of singulair. singulair is a medicine he was taking for allergies. you mentioned your son had allergies, so i wanted to just give your a little note and mention this. after stopping singulair, his fears basically disappeared within 4 weeks.
if he is taking singulair and you need more information about the side effects, please feel free to email me.
