Community Status Updates
I was very sad to hear how a Mosque in my hometown was vandalized this morning with hateful words. But to see the outpouring of support the community has provided warms my heart. http://globalnews.ca/news/1633564/cold-lake-mosque-vandalized/
Finally a study I can get behind? http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/10/23/ice-cream-may-help-older-women-become-pregnant-u-s-study-claims/

I'm not impressed with that blood clinic. 4 stabbings (3 in the arm and then she gave up and used my hand). At least the AMH test is done.
frostedlemonMy veins are so easy to stab - pale skin so really easy to see and they don't tend to collapse or cause problems. It says more about the skill of the person if they have to do it more than once. I had a student who stabbed me three times before calling in someone else to do it... and then later in the day they phoned and my vial had been broken so I had to go back and get it done again. I requested someone who knew what they were doing that time :P

Adrienne Donorfrostedlemon - that's sucks that you had to go back after a crappy first time too! How annoying.

ilovemydogI'm a pretty difficult case as well. Once I went for a beta that I knew was negative (AF had started). It took them six tries including hand - they finally had success mid-forearm. I was bawling at that point.

Worse day of my life is today. When in for a ultrasound only to be told I did not detect a heartbeat today and baby measuring 7 weeks and 4 days. I just saw my baby's heartbeat on 17th and now today nothing. I just want to crawl in a hole.
gibasgirlOh Sandra, I am so sorry this has happened.
Do take care.

Anyone with IC every have vaginal pain as a Symptom?
Hoping4_1When my cervix gave out, I went to the bathroom and my membranes were practically out. Youll know if that happens.
Yesterday, 05:15 PM
Hopingfor1Not pain, but pressure as mentioned. Just to put your mind at ease, ask them to measure your cervix now, at 16 weeks and again at your anatomy scan - that will help you relax and you will be able to tell if it is shortening.
Today, 01:15 AM
quandryI will make sure I do that. Thank you.
Someone on another thread mentioned it might have to do with dehydration as well, so I tried to drink more yesterday. I do feel a hin better today so I won't be going to the hospital, but I will keep a very close eye on it.

Looking for a egg donator / We want baby
Sending my thoughts to everyone in Ottawa. Wishing a healthy recovery to the solider and others wounded. Sad day for our country
Chicklet23389I just hear one reporter say that today is the day that changed Canada. I also heard the solider has passed away. This is a very, very sad day that has changed our country

galfromawayUnfortunately the soldier didn't make it. :( Injuries were "catastrophic"
Very scary, all of this. Military bases on lockdown in some places too.
Oct 22 2014 01:01 PM
Hoping any of the folks in Ottawa are doing ok. Frightening to hear about the happenings going on downtown right now. Please stay safe.
galfromawayAnd to any folks here who work in the Canadian military - some bases are on lockdown, including here in Halifax. Hoping you all stay safe as well, and that this scary time passes soon.
