HaaaveYouMetTed:  Ha I think floaties would work! Sorry you had a stressful day, and an unregulated thyroid can make it worse. Stress definitely triggers food cravings for me.. and the more sugar I eat, the more I want to eat. I did two whole30s last year and did so well with them but have trouble moderating myself if I’m not on an all or nothing diet. And during the whole 2 weeks of the MC I felt so sorry for myself I ate pretty much everything that crossed my path. Here’s to a better week!

spoonslicious2:  thank you for the kind words, I can’t wait for it to be a bit more normal, and for me to feel a little less super-sensitive to everything. 

AFM, finally stopped spotting after d&c, and now waiting patiently for AF so we can start trying again. OB said maybe wait 3 cycles but I don’t think there was a lot of evidence behind that.. especially since it’ll probably take a few cycles

HaaaveYouMetTed:  ha love that meme! Unfortunately I totally had an oreo minutes before I saw it. Where were those floaties when I needed them?!

Hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s with their loved ones. DH and I usually keep it low key. He sent me roses to work on Friday and then we went to brunch with my family today. Hope you guys were treated extra well if that’s your thing πŸ˜‰ We deserve it!!

HaaaveYouMetTed:  I read “It tarts with food” and jumped straight into 30 days of clean eating. My best friend eased into it and does well with just mostly sticking to clean eating.. I think it is different for each person. My main advance is to meal plan, plan ahead, and never be caught hungry in a bad place (like a mall, food court, most work places) where you can only find junk food, and to not be hard on yourself if you do eat junk food… just move on, since guilt doesn’t help. I found the book really interesting!

Oh dear friends, I have bad news. After our great scan last week we had our first ever ob appt.I hopped up on the table for the first time without a worry in the world. Then silence as we all realised that there was no heartbeat anymore. Baby had died the day before. First time I ever saw my husband cry. Still in shock now but will be having a d&c monday to try and test the tissue. They want to wait until the aspirin wears off a bit. No idea what will happen next, not looking forward to the mammoth task of staying sane in the months ahead.

bubbycakes:  Oh gosh, oh honey. I read this and my heart just broke for you. I am so so so sorry. It is so unfair. Your story sounds almost exactly like my miscarriage in Nov. Super high hcg, measuring a week behind at the first u/s but with a heartbeat, baby catches up in size by the second u/s but then no heartbeat. My fetal tissue testing indicated triploid syndrome – one of the most common abnormalities. Something that is in no way the mama’s fault, but is just a genetic accident. If you want anyone to speak to, I’m here. Anyway, I have no words really. I just hope that your d&c goes ok and that any testing reveals some answers. Be kind to yourself. I’ll be thinking of you xx

OliveFinn:  Thanks, yep my ob seems to think this one might be chromosonal which just sucks! We finally did tests and surgery and all this medication and to lose a baby to bad luck just seems so unfair. Especially if our first 4 losses were normal and we didn’t have the right medication. Argh my head hurts so much thinking about it and then the thought of doing this all over again. Starting from pregnancy tests, hcg, scans etc with all the stress and worry every day. Seems so overwhelming.

bubbycakes:  It is overwhelming. I think that’s one of the hardest things for people who haven’t had a loss to understand – that when you do have a m/c it’s not just that you are no longer pregnant, you’re less than not pregnant, if that makes sense. I wish there was something I could do or say to make it easier for you, but I know I can’t. I am just so angry and sad for you. I just don’t understand why shitty things have to happen to good people x

OliveFinn:  So much yes to your comment about feeling less than pregnant, only I can say that after my son passed, I felt like I had one less child. I was now at -1 babies. :/  It’s a horrible feeling that I still struggle with and that fuels my jealousy when I see other women with pregnant bellies and babies.

Kabatchy2be:  We spent our V day painting our dining room ceiling, then we ate sushi in the bedroom because of the fumes. Haha romantic I guess? Got tipsy off sake, watched the Walking Dead, and passed out watching Antiques Roadshow.  πŸ˜‰
