Hello everyone! I am back on the board after AF arrived today, 5 weeks after my D & C.
I have not really been reading through the boards too much, but I am sorry to still see you all here! I was hoping for BFP’s for you all!
I guess overall I am doing okay. I still have really hard days, which kind of hit me out of nowhere. Last Thursday was my due date for my first pregancy. As many of you can relate, it sucked going through that and especially not being pregant for it like I had hoped.
My doctor thinks that both MC’s were just circumstances of bad luck. They did chromosomal testing with this last loss and nothing abnormal came back. They think the baby’s heart may have been growing outside of his chest. We also found out it was a boy from the testing, so that was difficult.
It is possible I have a blood clotthing disorder. Back in October I had some bloodwork done from a neurologist as I was having sudden headaches. He said everything came back normal and I knew I was being tested for somethings that can relate to MC’s. When my gyno said she wanted to run similar tests and I had that October bloodwork faxed to her and she said I did test positive for one of the blood clotting tests. Apparently it is common for false positives with that, so I will have repeat blood work March 21. She does not think that is the case because my MC’s were so different, but we will see. She said I can try in the meantime before the blood work.
Im terrified to get pregnant again. Never thought I would be in the position and of course like everyone else in the world is pregnant right now!
I am happy to be back to get the support from all you strong, wonderful ladies 🙂
AFM, So long story short my sister is pregnant with #2 and wasn’t even that courteous when telling us. I had opened up to her earlier that day that we were trying when she was asking me if I was feeling better about my Sils pregnancy announcement, I said sort of. She told me to be happy for them. Oh really? Duh. She said That she’s not trying til next year. Cue relief. Then that night, Surprise. And I’m spotting brownish orange, no signs of O, slight watery cm I guess and Opks are all negative. Thanks body. Thanks world. Pity party over.
“Just because someone conceieved, doesn’t mean there is one less baby for me”… Trying to remember that.
AFM, I had an RE appt this morning and have 5 little follies right now. I go back Tuesday and hope there’s at least one dominant follie that’s grown. Until then, more shots shots shots shots shots. Too bad LMFAO and I are taking about different shots.
Side note – I finally figured out how to reply to more than one person at once! Quite a newbie over here.
Side note 2/ vent: it seems that whenever I have a day when I am finally feeling fine and forgetting my sadness, someone comes along and says “but really, how are you feeeling?” vent over
AFM, bees, I’m having a bad mental health day. My eating habits over the last year have been absolutely atrocious. I’ve gained about 8-10 pounds (maybe more, avoiding the scale) which I think has wreaked havoc on my hormones. Sending my blood sugar on such a spike everyday, a few times a day, has made my hormonal breakouts so much worse over the last few months and I’m terrified I’ve done some serious damage to my body by eating junk! I’ve also managed to convince myself that my miscarriages could have been prevented if I had taken better care of myself. I know that is a stupid to think but I can’t help it! I’m just so mad at myself for letting myself get this way 🙁
I posted earlier in the 1 + Year TTC thread about my thyroid concerns. I was diagnosed hypo about two years ago and have been on 50 mcg levothyroxine ever since. My TSH level is now within normal limits, but I’m not sure my T3 and T4 were ever tested. My doctor was kind of pushy about it and basically said “here take this” so I did without looking much further into it. I even asked for a referral to an endo, which he made me come in for another appointment and basically told me it was a waste of money.
I talked to a friend last night about my issues and to my surprise, she had two failed attempts of IVF before she went to a regular endo who identified her thyroid problem – and she got pregnant that cycle! I couldn’t believe her RE didn’t test her thyroid before moving straight to IVF.
I called my OBGYN today and asked for a referral to a regular endo to see if maybe I can get in sooner than the RE, and maybe he can do some thorough bloodwork before I see the RE. I fear the RE is just going to start me on Clomid, which I’m almost certain I ovulate anyway. I don’t want them to just get me pregnant; I want to fix the problem!
Sorry for the novel – it’s just been a rough day.
AFM, nothing new at CD7. I decided to not temp again this month. We are just going to try to BD EOD for the next two and a half weeks and hope for a BFP. Our appointment with the RE is Wednesday, so at least I feel I’m making moves.
I’m at CD 5 so not too far behind you! I usually O around CD 12-14 and we’re going to try EOD this cycle too. FX this is our month!!!!!
I’ll just wear floaties like this kid so the Oreos can’t reach my mouth 😏
