Sorry just to add I will go for my first beta at 16dpo next Tuesday… in march my hcg got up to 481 at like 21 dpo but then stopped and dropped also wasn’t doubling correctly however that is the highest my hcg has ever gotten typically I believe it may have got to 100-200 max… things I am doing differently this cycle include combination vitamin e and asprin, I switched to vaginal progesterone as I could not handle any more needles lol , maca in smoothies as much as I can, and I went to see a naturopath who basically confirmed I have low progesterone causing me anxiety panick attacks around ovulation until I get my period and the estrogen progesterone ratio was to great… so he prescribed me just yesterday biodentical progesterone cream made from wild yam to use every single day not just after u ovulate!!!! Soooooooo we shall see I will remain hopeful and everything is meant to happen I also saw a therapist finally and found that greatly cathartic to discuss my miscarriages and my birthday being May 7th would have been my due date if my first pregnancy in August would have panned out .

I’m not entirely sure why I am posting about this, but I know people on this board can relate. I told myself that I was going to be less obsessive this cycle (third cycle after MMC, and about 4 months after my D&C), but we tried SMEP this month and supposedly had perfect timing I have already taken several tests (I am 10 DPO) and nothing! Stark BFNs. Everyone I know IRL who has had an MC said they got pregnant right away and I am already getting frustrated. I turned 35 next month and it just seem like it’s impossible and never going to happen for me. I am finding myself getting really frustrated and angry and not sure what to do. My Darling Husband is oblivious. He’s seems like he’s just able to go on about his life and is not particularly stressed out about it. I know that it can take up to a year and that is considered “normal” if you are under 35 but it seems so unfair that so many people I know who are my age are on to their second on third child and we’re struggling to have the first! Ugh. I feel like I am at th end of my rope and not going to be able to just keep trying for months on end. My OB said to make an appointment again if we are not pregnant within 6 months of trying but I just feel so hopeless and helpless.

Hey ladies! 


Age/Age of Partner: 30/31

Loss Status: My son was born at 24+1 on Sept 14, 2018 and passed away after 24 days on Oct 7, 2018

Medical Reason (if any): They THINK I had a small placental abruption which caused me to have PPROM. I was on bedrest starting at 20 weeks. My doctor has told me that it was “just a fluke” because I had no precursors for it.  But that doesn’t make me feel any better about it.

Trying for Baby#: 3

Cycles Trying: This is our third


What Are You Doing Differently: nothing really

Chart: not temping yet, will start next cycle if this one is a no go

Please share anything about your angels. Names, special commemoration, pictures, etc: 

My sweet angel’s name is Axel Wyatt. We have done so much to remember him. We planted a tree at our chuch with some of his ashes sprinkled undneath. We have an engraved candle that we bring to all holidays and light. I started a blog about life after loss (here’s the link if you’re interested: https://natalie1in4.home.blog/). I just recorded an episode as a guest on the podcast The Joyful Mourning. We participated in a race and continue to raise money and volunteer for the local organization that helped us pay for his cremation and funeral costs. Just so much. I don’t want him to be forgotten! Sorry for the rambling! 

Here is my little guy!

And here he is with his big sister, who was 14 months old when he was born. She got to meet him about 10 mintues before he passed then came back in afterwards and we got this picture. A picture I will treasure forever. 

I could post pictures for days lolol. So I’ll just stop here!

natbrown0703 :  i’m so sorry for your loss.I haven’t roll called here yet because we’re not TTC yet (I got my rainbow after two losses) but I remember you from the charters group when I was getting ready to TTC #1. 

The ways in which you guys have chosen to remember and celebrate the life of Axel Wyatt is truly special. He’s a sweet angel and I’m sure he’s by your side every day. 

All the best and lots of baby dust to you as you start your ttc journey again.
