@gracianern; uggghh how stressfull, they should do more check-ups if only to reduce your anxiety! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you next week!
@alzora; to make a long story short our future baby will be a roma/moroccan baby with a dual dutch/moroccan passport, so any baby name has to meet the requirements in both countries :s
@casilayne; i remember poppy posting on similar situations with her mother too and i was trying to forget what my own mother said at a wedding last weekend (but since we're on that topic i might as well share) when asked if she was also looking forward to becoming a grandma somewhere in the next couples of years by the mother-of-the-bride, she replied she really hoped i will not get pregnant. Opposite of what your mom said, but it felt horrible as well. its weird how moms (and mils) who have been in the ttc game themselves can be so inconsiderate... (but then again i guess even our moms are only human)

@milasmama - cvdutch covered this already, but you don't have to use Robitussin. You can use any expectorant containing guaiphenesin (or guaifenesin). Just make sure it's an expectorant and that guaiphenesin is the only active ingredient. Another brand I've heard of people using is Mucinex.
@cvdutch - Yes, I know soy is bad for you generally (but especially when TTC)! I don't drink soy milk, but my husband does. I've recently started him on regular full-fat dairy instead. He didn't drink buckets of soy - only on his breakfast cereal every morning. So far, he's taking the change well!
@alzora - LOVE Gilmore Girls! When I'm pregnant, I'm going to watch the entire series on DVD!
@december - Not sure who mentioned dairy being bad for you, but it's definitely not! As mentioned earlier, full-fat is best. The only drawback with dairy is that it can thicken your cervical mucus (same way people suggest avoiding dairy when you have a cold to lessen chest congestion). However, I think the positives outweigh the negatives and consume plenty of dairy myself!
Personal update: My ovulation test was positive today! Yay! I'm very pleased because after last month (ovulation and period dates out of whack) this means I'm right on track. AF is due June 22 and I'm determined not to test until June 22 at the absolute earliest! After last month's disappointment, I'm going to let myself hold out hope for a little longer!TTC #1

@alzora HOLY COW, your accident sounds so horrible (to put it mildly). I can't imagine how tough you must be from going through all of that! I sometimes let myself wallow for a bit because I have some chronic back issues from severe scoliosis as a child (and nearly all of my spine is fused to 2 titanium rods) but that's nothing compared to what you've been thru! Do you have any ongoing pain issues? That's been the toughest part of pregnancy for me, balancing the need to treat my chronic pain with the safety and health of the baby. Very, very tough.
@grecianern: I haven't seen the details of your current situation but it sounds pretty similar to mine. I had a miscarriage with my last pregnancy and I'm now just about 14 weeks pregnant for the second time. It's been so incredibly difficult to constantly wonder what's going on in there and is baby ok. How far along are you? It was torture for me to make it to the 8 week ultrasound and then the 12 week - but things looked good both times. But now we have to wait for the anatomy scan at around the 20 week mark and that's 40 days away (but who's counting?? HA). So hard but I try to take one day at a time as best I can. And I try not let myself fall down the rabbit-hole of all the what-if's. Stress isn't good for me and baby so I try to limit it when I can!Christine

@ december, according to conventional dietary wisdom dairy is probably fine. However I follow a slightly unconventional diet which tends to be fairly skeptical of dairy: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/dairy...#axzz2VadCkTLp. Although like I mentioned, I do currently eat it, just in the same way other people eat chocolate - not for the health benefits!
@ alzora, wow. That's an incredible story, you must be a very strong person. I have quite a long medical history too although quite different. I had anorexia in my teens which lead to several heart attacks (& therefore heart damage), damage to my bones & reproductive system and a brain injury... among other things! Obviously it did not prevent me from either being pregnant or giving birth in the end
@frances322, sorry to hear that. I know it's stating the obvious, but it's so frustrating that you only get a few days to try and then you have to wait another month. It would be a lot easier in some ways to be fertile all month long! Lol. Best of luck for next month.
I just found out today that DH has booked us a mini-break on another island next week, smack bang during my fertile window. For a lot of you this would be a good thing, except that he has only booked us a double room and there are 3 of us :/ Usually if we go away for a few days I don't mind Mila snuggling in with us as it saves having to convince her to sleep in a strange bed, but this time I'm not thrilled about it. I haven't actually told him those are my fertile days because I don't want to put the pressure on him. Sigh... Going to try and somehow convince him to upgrade.
