Roll call: 31/35 Trying for our first
Status (MC cycle/rest cycle/TTC cycle): Not really sure…3DPO on my first real cycle after MC, we were supposed to be sitting it out (2-3 months) but we didn’t behave so well. Our timing wasnt the best either, though, and we definitely werent “trying”.
MC History: MC’d our little girl on Nov 14th at 15wks. First pregnancy
Issues (if any): None that I’m aware of yet. Took us 3 months to conceive our last one, so really hoping we are as fortunate this time!
Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): Next cycle we are going to get back into actively trying, timing, etc. I tempted after my MC and this cycle just to see what my body was doing, but that’s about it. I am O’ing later now and my cycles have been a bit longer, but i also am still testing positive and seem to have some residual HCG in my system. We probably should have been more diligent about protection this cycle but…..what can ya do. 😉 I’m still surprised and confused about how I got a period, and O’d, when i still have faint faint postives on HPTs from the MC.

What are your biggest challenges right now? Trying to stay positive, especially because everyone around me seems to be pregnany or have very new newborns. I oscilate between REALLY wanting this, and wanting it right now….and wanting more time because i’m so scared of it happening again.
Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes: One was already mentioned, so the other is:
“Maybe life isnt about avoiding the bruises. Maybe it’s about collecting the scars to prove we showed up.”
Just for fun: Any New Year resolutions? I dont really do New Years resolutions but I am going to try and be kinder to myself. More self care, more self love, less blame and guilt. My coping strategies have been sugar and alcohol so I’m working really hard to get into a healthier mindset, and a healthier lifestyle as a result. I also joined a gym. 🙂
