Status (MC cycle/rest cycle/TTC cycle): TTC Cycle # 4 after last loss
MC History: Married in NYE 2013. Went on our honeymoon in July 2014, decided we should start NTNP. Found out we were pregnant on November 20 2014 (our dating anniversary), but had a CP a few days later. Remained calm for awhile, but then started temping and what I consider “Trying” in February 2015. 7 cycles later, we found out were were pregnant again on September 10, 2015 (DH’s birthday). Ended in natural MC at 8 weeks
Issues (if any): Unknown. Doctor says we have bad luck (gee, thanks)
Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): Well, we have an actual plan for two cycles from now, which will include Clomid & straight to IUI. For now, I am being very proactive and getting all my ducks in a row for then. I had this week off, so I had every blood test, saline ultrasound (YAY for clear tubes and no HSG!), thyroid ultrasound, etc. that the doctor said I needed. I want to be 100% ready when we start our fertility treatments.
Link to chart: No longer temping! It stresses me out, and I have a year of data to show I was ovulating, I figured taking my temperature isn’t going to get my pregnant, so I stopped totally. I actually threw out my thermometer so I wouldn’t be tempted lol
What are your biggest challenges right now? As much as I am excited to have a plan in place with the RE, I also don’t want to admit we need help. I am trying to focus on getting ready for the IUI, but at the same time all I want is to get pregnant on my own this cycle. I want to squash my hope, as it hasn’t done me any good so far, but I can’t.
Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes: Focusing my energy elsewhere. I put Darling Husband and I on a “financial diet” at the beginning of the year, as sort of a project for myself and in hopes we can save for our own house! I am also trying to lose some weight, but that’s an eternal struggle for this lady!
Just for fun: What are your top baby names? We can only agree on boy names. :o) If we ever have a boy, he will be either Adam or Jason. Girls names change all the time. My taste is a little out there, I really like Lou, Evelyn is a favorite of mine, Ella…Darling Husband likes traditional, simple names like Anna or Sarah. We both agreed on Natalie, but he said when he was with his first girlfriend in HS, they said they would name their nonexistant baby Natalie, so there goes that lol
