Thanks everyone for your kind words, it really helps to know you are all there and understand (I know you've all been through it in one way or another). Yesterday was pretty bad - I had to go to work in the evening and everyone was asking me if I had flu as my eyes and nose were so red and puffy. And I hardly slept last night. But today I feel much better. I have been out into the garden and looked at all the bulbs sticking their noses up through the soil, telling me life goes on And very soon the days will be getting longer again (though not for you Drew ) And my brother's ex-wife is speaking to him again, so we will get to see his kids at Christmas after all, which has cheered me up.
Emily - hope your back is better, you don't deserve back trouble on top of everything else.
Becca - any news on your immune tests?
Best wishes to everyone
Jaq, I'm so sorry - have been off the boards for a while but had been keeping my fingers crossed for you, it must be so difficult with all this festive cheer around. Don't expect too much of yourself over christmas, I found after my m/c that taking each moment as it came was the best way to get through the day. That way its easier to enjoy the happier moments when they come without denying the sad ones. am sending you lots of hugs.
Emily, moan away to your hearts content, apparently those of us who gripe about the stuff that pees us off live longer, hurray for that! lots of hugs to you too.
And to all you fine endo girlies who are so supportive and caring, heres wishing us all at least 7000 calories on christmas day (yum), lots of nice pressies and a pint of alka seltza. Lets hope 2005's a good year for us all.
It seems to have gone very quiet on all the ff boards recently - you must all be busy getting ready for Saturday. Anyway just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope that at least some of your dreams will come true in 2005
I was thinking the same, everyone is too busy with there xmas plans.
Anyway, As a fairly new member I just wanted to wish all you lovely ladies who have supported me throught the last few months and everyone at fertility friends a wonderful xmas and of course may all our dreams come true in 2005!!!
Had my Xmas do on Friday with work and a collegue spiked my drinks with Pollish vodka. I intended to drink bacardi in moderation but got absolutely smashed and made a fool of myself so I'm not very happy!!!! I know it's sounds like an excuse for being too drunk but I cant tell you how naffed off I am about it .
Anyway, hope you all have a groovy Christmas and lets hope 2005 will be the year for us endo girls!!!
Just dropping by whilst I am sipping my hot chocolate in an internet cafe. Done lots of shopping but not too much sight seeing .
Jaq - I am sorry to hear about your bad news sweetie - please take care of yourself!!!
Bad news for me too - AF arrived after my supposingly JOYOUS ovulation. I was 2 days late for my period and had heavy black clotting. Was scared to death because it was BLACK!!! Dont know what to do and don't know how to get help from local doctors. So ended up posting a question to the site nurse and she was great! I called home and talked to mom and she suspect it could be because my 5cm cyst bursted - the black clot could be the result of old blood. I don't know. I wonder if I can ever fall pregnant naturally. Oh well - at least now I can really enjoy my holiday and abuse myself with caffiene .
Anyway girls - I am getting kicked out (again), love to you all, hope you all had a fabulous christmas and look forward to chatting with you lovely ladies again in the new year. Hopefully there will be good news for all of us.

I had an ok christmas with my parents but got a broken nose.......just dont ask and no i didnt have too much alcohol and fall over lol
Been very tearful today, found a lump in my upper tum near by ribs which i had about 8 months ago and it was endo and am soooo scared in case its that bad again.
DH bought me a tigger and a piglet so that brought all of those emotions back to the forefront again not that it really went but is all i can think about at present and so now cant stop crying too much.
Back to reality tomorrow, back to work and i am in charge of section probably a case of the blind leading the blind but hey thats another story
Have a good new year everyone and lets hope 2005 brings us all that we all dream of
Emily - I'm gutted for you having to wait so long for an appointment. I used to get so frustrated inbetween appointments . Have you had that sore throat and cold thing that's going around? I've been laid up for a week feeling really poorly. DP has got it now. We both stink of Olbos oil!! Hope you're feeling better soon.
Drew - you jet setter you!!! Hope you and dh are having the time of your lives. I've got (yes another) sale going through on my house and all being well me and dp will be going on hols soons . We might even get married in Las Vegas, who knows!!! All you girlies can be my cyber bridesmaids!!!! I should nt count my chickens as the house is nt sold yet so fingers crossed.
Jaq - how are you doing girl? Hope you and dp had a nice Christmas. Thinking of you
Francessca, Bloggs and Helen - hi girls, hope you had a good un
I've got my appointment at Notts CARE for further tests on 26 Jan. I'm really pleased as I thought I'd have to wait ages. I may have to visit them 3 times which is a bit disappointing as it's over a 100 miles away, but hopefully it will be worth it. I'm hoping to start next ivf about March . I'm getting really worried as we can only afford 2 more goes at the most.
I am still sniffing and waiting for AF to arrive, it the frist time i want it to be here. i have baseline scan on 11th jan so hope af arrives before that.
My cold is alot better now at least i can sniff better.
Emily - i rang the clinic and they didnt seem that bothered and said to either cancel my treatment and rescedule or wait till the scan. So of course i am waiting til my scan. I know there is always a long waiting list to see Mr P i supose its because he is so good.
I hope all you ladies are ok and not in to much pain.
