GrannyPantiesRock:  This is awful news. I’m praying hard that it turns around for you.

MrsNebraska: I’m so, so very sorry for your recent loss. 

Roll call:

Status (MC cycle/rest cycle/TTC cycle): MMC in May at 9 weeks, D&C, AF 4 weeks later, TTC ever since. 6th cycle TTC.

MC History: MMC in May (9wks)

Issues (if any): None, worried about low progestrone and scaring on uterus. Have a saline sonogram on Thursday and will go in for blood work to test progesterone at 7DPO.

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): Baby Aspirin, Prenatals, Vitamin D, Evening Primrose, Pre-Seed, Soft Cups

Link to chart:

What are your biggest challenges right now? (see below)

 

I’m not evening going to pretend to be able to catch up on 46 pages so I’m jumping in here. I’m really struggling this past week. DH’s cousin had twins in July (2nd cycle), BFF#1 had a little boy last December (cycle 1) and now she’s off BC and going TTC in January, BFF#2 just got a BFP this weekend (cycle 3), SIL is 9 weeks pg, and our due date is fast approaching from our MC in May. DD would have been 12/15, same date as BFF#1’s DD. We are now going on our 6th cycle of trying, and I know in the grand scheme of things, that’s not very long, but I just can’t contain my sadness. I’m so happy for everyone and I wouldn’t wish this struggle on anyone, it’s just that I feel so alone. I talk to DH a little, but I don’t want to scare him. I honest to God don’t have one friend that either doesn’t have a kid or isn’t pregnant.

GrannyPantiesRock:  I’m so sorry!! My heart breaks reading this update. It’s so unfair that you’re going through this again, sending you tons of positive thoughts and virtual hugs. We’re all here for you.

MrsBananas:  How you been? Haven’t seen you in the charters thread, but I still stalk your chart.

Andthepupmakes3:  I really hope that your will be expecting your sticky baby by January too!!  I should be TTC by then hopefully as well.   I need to call my insurance today to see what is covered if I want to see a RE.  I think it would be a good idea to actually have someone to give me better answers then my OB.

GrannyPantiesRock:  I’m so so sorry you are going through this again.  It is just torture to be in limbo as you are now.  What you are going through sounds just like my first MC with the measuring behind and low HB.  It’s just terrible.  I really hope that you will have your sticky baby very soon.  Take as much time as you need to greive and know that we are all here for you.

GrannyPantiesRock:  I am so ridiculously sorry that you are here again. I was so keeping my fingers crossed. I came back here Sunday to see your update. I am still thinking about you. I wish this weren’t going the way it is.

alove31:  Sorry you are going through such a hard time.  I too have been struggling with the announcements and births lately.  Next month and the following months will also be hard since the EDD for my first MC is Nov. 20th.  Just know you are not alone in your feeling.  The only way I get my feeling out is through these wonderful ladies on WB.  My husband just can’t fully understand how I feel and I get that but it’s hard.  Wising you a sticky baby soon!

Turtle83:  *waves hi*  I’ve been doing ok, just kinda laying low and only posting sporadically. But I’m still following along on each board, watching.  Between IF, the MC and charting I’m not really sure which thread I belong anymore so instead of crossposting I just pop in certain places every so often.  Cycle-wise, I’m pretty happy this cycle looks like I’ll O earlier than any other post-MC cycle so that’s an improvement.  But I’m still very worried about DH’s MFI so that takes the wind out of my sails most days.  Just trucking along for now I guess!  DH has a repeat SA in 3 weeks and I have a hysteroscopy for a fibroid a week after that.  If it’s not one thing, it’s another, it seems. 

How are you doing?  I know your last couple weeks have been rough but I’m wishing you the best.

4littlekitties:  Thank you! I really needed to read that lately. I have to keep reminding myself this is what is best for our long haul. It’s definitely hard to give up the baby dream right now…

alove31:  Thank you, and I’m sorry for your loss and struggle right now. I am slightly suspicious of my hormones. I feel like they aren’t where they needed to be in order to have a viable pregnancy. I think next time we try I will talk to a doctor about coming in sooner. I hope your appointment on Thursday gives you some information about that is going on.

 

My best friend of 18 years just had her baby this morning. She wants me and DH to be her godparents. She is a precious baby girl. Ugh. I am so happy for her but it brings up emotions that I don’t really want to feel right now in the midst of everything that has been happening and our choice to stop ttc for the time being.

MrsBananas: *Waves hi* ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I’m kind of in the same situation; I’m not sure which of those 3 boards I really belong to. I’m glad you ovulated earlier this cycle, are you TTC this month or are you waiting until after the hysteroscopy? I’m sorry about the fibroid and hoping it all goes well with the procedure and your DH’s repeated SA results show improvement. I’m doing well, I’m looking forward to my appointment with my RE on Friday and hoping she will suggest a plan for the next cycle.

Turtle83:  I haven’t O’d yet although I did get my positive OPK today on CD12 which is much more in line with my pre-mc stats.  (The last two cycles, my +’s were on CD 15 & 17) And my last AF was super light, again much like pre-mc, so I think that now after 3 months my body is finally regulating again.  And yup we are TTC this cycle. I just can’t bring myself to skip a cycle…  Thanks for the well wishes, I hope so too.  I’m worried that the SA will be the same as before as hubs really hasn’t made any significant lifestyle changes (other than the suppliments and Clomid). Sigh.

I hope your RE will have something in mind for you.  Are you on progesterone? Sorry if you’ve mentioned this before…

MrsBananas:  I thought I read you had already ovulated, I’m sorry I misunderstood you! I’m glad your body is finally regulating and your cycles are more like they used to be before the MC. Supplements and clomid are supposed to improve numbers, so his SA results should be better ๐Ÿ™‚ I look forward to your update, and wish you all the best. The RE put me on progesterone supplementation as soon as pregnancy was confirmed. Our plan was to try naturally until the end of the year and go back to the RE next year, so I wasn’t on any type of treatment. I’m hoping she will offer us some options.

Hi friends…. This thread keeps disappearing into the depths of last week’s bee news.  Is everyone just taking mental breaks or did all the active members graduate to the pregnancy thread?

AFM, I’m 9DPO and BFN. I know it’s still early, but I can’t help feeling like my period is just around the corner.  I was so hopeful and positive this cycle, despite having ovulation sneak up on me and therefore not the ideal BD timing.  I have been having a niggling, aching feeling for two days deep inside my lower abdomen area. I thought for sure it was a little nugget implanting and my uterus responding, but if that were the case I probably would have had a FPL on the test this morning.  All I have is an indent.  I was SO hoping for a Christmas announcement ๐Ÿ™

Andthepupmakes3:  I’m still here. I’ve just been feeling so scared lately. It seems like everyone who has had a miscarriage is having another one, and it breaks my heart. Life is not fair. At all. I’m just a little over four weeks and am not doing anything but waiting for the other shoe to drop. 

Nebraska, Turtle, GPR … Thinking of all of you. Phoebe, crossing everything for you.

redux:  I know the fear is so hard.  I also know how hard it can be when you convince yourself you’re going to have a long road of TTC in front of you… I wish I had good advice for blocking the fear out but I have lived many parts of my life waiting for the other shoe to drop, so I haven’t exactly mastered controlling it.  However, there are SO many women who have had one, two, three, 7 miscarriages and then gone on to have healthy babies.  I’m guessing most of them had fear that the healthy pregnancy would turn wrong, but didn’t. You just never know which one will be your one and worrying about it won’t change the outcome either way.  So, just try to stay calm and provide your little nugget with as much positivity and strength as you can pass on to it.   That’s what I hope to do sooner rather than later hopefully ๐Ÿ™‚  I was thinking this morning, maybe if I get pregnant I will try to live with the mantra  “third time’s the charm.”  Now pick your positive mantra!
