MechEBee:  Fx for good numbers for you!!  I could not agree more about the whole pregnancy thing being a waiting game.  I was told before my D&C that I would have to wait at least two cycles before we could try again.  So now I am waiting for that time to pass so I can wait to see if I get pregnant…..  So frustrating.  Hopefully you get good news and you will be able to start TTC again.

MechEBee:  FX your numbers go down.  I feel you on the waiting game.  I had to get pregnant, wait to miscarry, wait to stop bleeding, wait for AF to come, wait to start TTC again, and now start the process all over again of waiting for either AF or FW.  I’m so sick of waiting!

MechEBee:  Good luck! I hear you on the waiting game. We had to wait to TTG, wait for my body to regulate on the pill, do the TTC wait (and I didn’t get my positive until 18 dpo!), wait for the miscarriage rate to drop and it was safe to announce, then wait for the D&c, then wait for my cycle to return.

I’ve had a tough week. I had a D&C for a MMC at 10 weeks (baby was 9 weeks) about a month ago. I got all signs of ovulation, then my period started over the weekend. It was an anovulatory cycle. I’m hoping I begin to regulate soon so we can try again.

Pollywog:  Have you had anovulatory cycles before?  I’m fairly certian my first AF came after and anovulatory cycle as well, but my cycles have been fairly regular since then.  FX your cycles are normal soon!

MechEBee:  Yes, TTC is such a waiting game.  I was waiting to TTC, then waiting for O, then waiting to test, waiting for the first tri to be over…. then waiting for my period, then waiting for O….. etc.  I hate waiting!  FX so hard for super low numbers for you!!!  You usually get Friday’s results on Monday, right?

Pollywog:  My first period after my D&E (at 10w, baby was 6w) was super weird, not sure if I O’d that cycle either.  FF couldn’t tell if so.  But then things went back to normal.  I hope that’s the case for you, too!

How was everyone’s weekend? Darling Husband and I went to spend the weekend with my dad and his partner, which was a lot of fun. We had dinner and watched a movie Friday, went to the zoo and science center Saturday day, watched movies Saturday evening, and then hung out this morning. I was so nice and was very un-TTC/pregnancy/MC focused until we got the call that my cousin was in labor. She had her baby girl Saturday night. I am so, so happy for her, but I had to leave my room when my sister was on speaker telling my dad. He kept getting updates, but I could tell her was trying to play them off. I have to admit, while I’m so happy her pregnancy and birth went so well, I had this overwhelming feeling of jealousy when I heard that and later saw the pics of her sweet baby on FB. I’m not so sad anymore. I think I’ve finally accepted what happened and TTC again has given me a new focus, but that jealousy was crazy. It was like I could feel the child I wouldn’t get to have in my arms. Terrible feeling. Hopefully cycle will be semi-normal. If so, ovulation should be the end of this week or this coming weekend. My sex drive is back to normal (had pretty much 0 when pregnant and of course none right after MC), which I take as a good sign. This should be a busy week at work, so hopefully that will help get me to the FW.

KatiePi:  That sounds so tough with your cousin.  I know EXACTLY that feeling you are talking about, like you’re feeling the baby you will never hold– I felt it when my friend announced her pregnancy shortly after my MC.  (Our due dates would have been very close.)  I was at work and it literally took my breath away.  I actually had kind of a flash of it the other day when I got her baby shower invitation– it’s definitely toned down now that I am pregnant, but there is still sadness there.  I hope that you are pregnant again soon so that you will only have to deal with the lesser version of that feeling.  Sex drive is definitely a good sign!!

auggiefrog:  I was on the pill for a decade, had to wait 2 months for my withdrawl bleed, then got pregnant right away. So I don’t have enough data to know if this is normal or not.

SaltedCaramel:  Thank you! I hope it does soon!

KatiePi:  I’m sorry– that is tough. But I totally understand. I spent the weekend with my in-laws who I saw for the first time post-MC. The MC was not mentioned at all (no ‘how are you doing?’), which kind of hurt. To make it worse, my SIL was talking about her birth story and mentioned something aluding to the things you find out in Labor and Delivery- it was clear she had no clue I spent hours there for my D&C and had the horrible food, too small of socks, and lots of blood. Plus, my 8 neices and nephews were running around, including my 5 month old niece. And mass was full of babies. It was definately rough and I was jealous.

Hi ladies. Looks like I’ll be joining you. After a successful IUI, we found a very low heartbeat at almost 7 weeks and no heartbeat 5 days later. I’ve grieved and experienced a whole mix of emotions. I’m now emotionally ready to move on. I have to schedule my D&C so I will roll call after that.

Pollywog:  Ughh…I’m sorry. That sounds awful. Just too much stimulation when you’re dealing with something like this. I was very thankful it was just Darling Husband, me, my dad, and his partner. Very relaxed for the most part.

MiJeS1104:  I posted on the Charters thread, but wanted to say again I’m so sorry that you have to be here. This is a wonderful group of supportive ladies who have helped me work through the emotions and feelings that continue to surprise me. Hope your stay here is short.

MiJeS1104:  I am so sorry for your loss. I, too, hope you find support on this board as many of us have. 

KatiePi:  Sorry for that tough situation with your cousin. I can totally relate. I’m glad you were able to remove yourself during that phone call. I sometimes have a hard time setting boundaries on what I can handle and instead just “grinning and bearing it”.

Pinkpeep:  Yeah, I get that too. I stayed for a minute but just hearing the excitement in my sister’s voice was too much. I kep thinking- “this could have been me in a few months” and just had to walk away. I told  my husband who was in the guest bedroom and he just gave me a hug and commented on how sucky the timing was (she wasn’t due for 3 weeks). I can’t wait to get past the point where everything that happens feels personal.

Well…somewhat ironic. Today was originally our first ultrasound appointment. I had struggled last week with whether to keep the personal day I had scheduled because I wasn’t sure how I’d feel. Ended up cancelling it because I’ll miss work Friday for a grading day and actually working has helped a lot. Then…ended up with strep. Blah. First time ever having it. Got started on Amoxicillin and will hopefully help. Does anyone know…could this delay O?

KatiePi:  bah! How ironic, huh? I also ended up working a full day on the day I had taken the am off for my first ultrasound. Working the day helped me too. Sorry you ended up with strep, though! I hope you feel better soon. Not sure about it or the antibiotics impacting O.  I find this journey so confusing! …and I’m a nurse! I’ve realized how very little I know about all this.

MiJeS1104:  I’m so sorry for your loss, and that you have found yourself here.  Do what you need to to take care of yourself in the next few days and weeks until you feeling a bit better, and remember we are always here for you. 

KatiePi:  Sorry about your cousin.  I understand how you are feeling.  My FB is flooded with babies right now.  And I feel like the second wave of babies os coming son.  I feel really competitive to be on that next wave!

Well, for those of you following my never ending story:

I got my blood results back today. They were at 13. Last week and the week before they were at 15. The doctor had told me that if they were still at 15 this time, he would schedule me for a D&C.

Unfortunatly, my results were released to me today via an automated release system. So I haven’t heard from the doctor yet. I don’t know if a 2 point drop is enough to avoid a D&C or not. Hopefully I’ll hear from him soon.
