HaaaveYouMetTed:  going to roll call in the morning, but you are my soul sister!!! 1. I keep searching for bloggers that are going through inferility/had their rainbow babies to try to give me hope…2. Evelyn & Vivienne are two of my favorite girl names!! I also JUST mentioned Sienna to Darling Husband because I would love a Sisi/Cici nickname 🙂 He vetoed Sienna and Vivienne lol

Roll call: 

Status (MC cycle/rest cycle/TTC cycle): TTC cycle 18/cycle 8 post MMC 

MC History: Tried for nearly a year but had longggg cycles within that time. Got pregnant on the third cycle with the RE but miscarried at 8 weeks with a d&c following. Have had 7 failed cycles since.

Issues (if any): PCOS for me. Darling Husband is all good.

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): On my first cycle of injectables (gonal-F), ovidrel to trigger and IUI. I should’ve started acupuncture as intended but don’t wanna pay for ANOTHER thing. It’s pretty pricey so I’ve been putting off. Still considering it..

What are your biggest challenges right now? Besides getting pregnant again, coping with pregnancy announcements. I feel like I can chug along fine with the appts, the shots, etc but as soon as I get wind of another announcement, I lose my shit.

Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes: You guys are my best coping strategy! Talking to people who get it really helps. And the NY/NJ meetups ❤️

Just for fun: What are your top baby names? Idk! They change all the time. Darling Husband and I like traditional names though.. Zachary, Joshua, Rachel, Alexandra to name a few. 

HaaaveYouMetTed:  Thanks for starting the thread again! Also, I love the name Hallie. I actually really like Allie, too but DH’s dog was named Allie and I it’d be weird to have a daughter named after his dog haha.

Roll call:

Status (MC cycle/rest cycle/TTC cycle): waiting for d&c then rest while we wait for foetal testing.

MC History: 5 losses now. From 4 weeks to 9 weeks.

Issues (if any): Tests were all clear

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): can’t even begin to think of that yet. Doctors want to add more and more medication each time 😕

What are your biggest challenges right now? Not running away, facing everyone, living with the feeling that everything that we were excited about has vanished.

Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes: keeping busy, trying to see humour in our absurd situation.

Just for fun: What are your top baby names? Evelyn and Lucas.

Roll call!

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

Roll call:

Status (MC cycle/rest cycle/TTC cycle): TTC cycle #10

MC History: Early MC cycle #5. Starting spotting red, tests went blank. 🙁

Issues (if any): None? I’m 25, Darling Husband is 24. Perfectly regular periods. Perfectly normal SA.  I told my OB of our TTC issues at my last yearly check up so she did a vaginal US and found a 5.3 cm cyst on my ovary! I only weigh 97 lbs and was shocked and freaked out that there was a mass that large in me without me knowing it. And who knows if it’s causing problems; I’m going back in 3 weeks to see if it’s still there. Either way, she says we will be “very aggressive” to getting me pregnant which is also a lot to swallow in its own right. 

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): Continue BBT, OPKs etc. PNV, baby aspirin, ubiquinol, mucinex, pineapple, almost no alcohol/caffeine.

What are your biggest challenges right now? My BFF and SIL are knocked up right now. Of course, both started trying AFTER we did and tried for like a month. Sucks balls.

Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes: My desktop has a sticky note which says “Life isn’t fair, but it is good.” Also, I’ve been praying daily about this since months before we even started TTC, but recently I’ve added the phrase “Prayer is progress.” in order to give me more faith that prayer is making a difference even if I can’t see it now.

Just for fun: What are your top baby names?

Lori (my mother’s name) and Luke.

futuremrssquiggs:  looks equal to me!

Thunderstorm:  thanks so much. I appreciate the thoughts,

HaaaveYouMetTed:  Thanks lovely!

Today was kind of surreal we had to go to maternity ward for our d&c. Line up with pregnant people. Our room had baby things like change mats. They gave me the medication to start me off and open my cervix.

Then I got the worst shakes and chills for about 2hrs. Then was wheeled to theatre still ice cold. Surgery was okay. Went back to room and was told i’d lost a lot of blood and might need blood transfusion as blood pressure was also only 80/50.

We had to wait around for hours, had food to raise it and we finally got to 90/50 and they let me go home. Told to rest and come back to see ob in a few days. Feeling fine physically but so bizarre emotionally. Feel like i should have my baby with me. They got the whole sample from the d&c so hopefully we will get an answer from our testing.

bubbycakes:  ugh how awful. I’m sorry you had to go through that. The maternity ward? That’s some bull right there. Hope you get some answers soon. 

Major vent ahead: yesterday Darling Husband and I went to see his grandparents who are in town. They know we miscarried and have been seeing a dr. Well grandpa thought it’d be a nice idea to tell me “it’ll happen. Just try and relax”. Ughhhhh!! I told Darling Husband later that that’s bascially the number one thing you don’t say to someone struggling. He felt bad of course but really? I wish they didn’t know anything but fine. It’s obvious something is up since its been over 9 months since I was pregnant. But keep your damn mouth shut. Not ok. Then this morning my mom called to tell me my cousin is pregnant. Her and her sister our due 3 weeks apart. She also has a 16 month old and I remember crying when I found out she was pregnant with him. It’s like a sick joke. Lots of tears flowing this weekend. Hating every second of this bullshit.

Kabatchy2be:  I’m sorry, none of this fair. Pregnancy announcements suck, even more when people are on to their second. people say stupid things about infertility but it’s hard to not be annoyed. People like to say to me ‘at least you’re young’ like wtf? So i have more years to recurrently miscarry my babies? Considering i get pregnant and lose babies my age has nothing to do with it grrr.
