4littlekitties:  Thanks for doing this. I wasn’t really able for it there for a while but this thread was a great support after my MC. Hope you are doing ok x

Roll call:

Status (MC cycle/rest cycle/TTC cycle): 4th after the MC, 12th overall, TTC since Feb/March 2013

MC History: MMC discovered at a reassurance scan at 10W1D, ‘early’ chemical in January (faint positives at 9dpo, 11dpo, 12dpo etc, never got darker but definitely there). 

Issues (if any): hypothyroidism (under control), I’m in the middle of testing currently so I’ll let you know! 

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): The usual healthy diet (high in raw veg, especially greens, nuts and seeds and fruit such as blueberries and blackberries), Eltroxin, pregnacare, asperin, no coffee, cutting down on alcohol etc, continue to go to acupuncture, Hopefully make an action plan with my OB because I’m ready to get this shit going!!

What are your biggest challenges right now?

Dealing with insensitive comments/actions from others. For example, a friend told me that her husband said they wouldn’t need to use opks because they’d have ‘no problems, like the last time’. Seriously, say this again to the person who’s been TTC for a year!!! 

And this is only a mild example. I’ve had way worse in the past few days.

Current coping strategies/favourite inspirational quotes:

A friend told me yesterday, if I’m really dreading something (I have something on today I’m really not looking forward to) to break it up into manageable chunks. I’m trying to do that. Hopefully, it will help me deal with difficult things in the future.

4littlekitties:  Ive been to two and they’re definitely more caring and more inclined to be concerned about ‘the whole person’. Dose yours have expertise in fertility? He asked me to do food diaries to see how i can improve it. He gave advice on de stressing Too. I find him very good. I asked him to focus on stress one week and i felt huge relief after going to him. I know he can’t change any physical issues so I’m pushing for tests but if there’s nothing physical wrong I think acupuncturists can make the difference.

KatieBklyn:  I know you guys were on the last thread from the beginning. Do you still feel really down on a regular basis? I just thought I’d feel better than I do at this point. Every knock back just seems so much worse now..

Thanks for starting a new thread. heres hoping none of us will be here to see part 6! 

Roll call:

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

MC History: January 2011 mc at 9 weeks – blighted ovum (lots of pain and bleeding very heavy, AF returned 3 weeks later) October 2013 mc at 5 weeks – natural miscarriage (little pain, moderate bleeding, no AF after as i got pregnant immediately) 22nd March 2014 induced labour after finding out at our 20 week scan that our baby died a few weeks earlier. 6 hours of labour later i gave birth to my little boy weighing just 85g – we named him Charlie. Currently still bleeding but its very strange. 

Issues (if any): Overweight (will be starting a slimming club when i come back off holiday to get into shape) other than that we dont know of any issues yet, tests are being done. 

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): No idea yet, apart from high dose folic acid. Hopefully there will be something we can do to help a sticky baby and a healthy baby. 

Link to chart: I dont chart

What are your biggest challenges right now? Getting over the grief, waiting to ttc and not knowing what is wrong with my body. Losing the weight will also be a massive challenge i really struggle with it. 

Current coping strategies/favourite inspirational quotes: I have lots of groups on facebook which support miscarriage/stillbirth mothers and they really help. If anybody would like to join then message me with your facebook details and ill friend you and add you to the groups, if i didnt have them i would go crazy. I also feel a little better knowing that tests are being done, even though the wait for the tests is killing me we are one day closer to having our rainbow.

phoebephoebo:  I’m really up and down, though I have to say it’s definitely getting better. My lows aren’t quite as low, my “highs” are higher. I feel like 90% back to myself most of the time, but there are lots of moments where I’m just like, legit depressed and pessimistic. I feel like I’m also really focused on getting pregnant again, like it’s going to be the cure or something. I’m like, “I can handle the grief if I have a new pregnancy to focus on and be grateful for, but if that doesn’t come, this is going to hit me like a tidal wave pretty soon.”
