leahdany:  Thank you for starting the new thread. My friend is being very sweet and she’s trying. If i told her that i was definitely due oct, she would have more info to make changes.. but we have ZERO clue! I’m not sure when she’ll pick her date. She’s hoping to go venue hunting in the next month. :/

@lalalalauren: I am so sad for you. So, so, so sorry. This is all just so unfair! And I am particularly angry at the bitchy nurse. I realize it’s difficult to remain sensitive to these sort of things when you deal with them everyday, but sheesh, at least TRY! I am sending you massive hugs.

FreckledFox:  Hmm, tough situation. I wouldn’t want to step down as Maid/Matron of Honor either. I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my SIL’s wedding back in June. We started TTC in January so I would’ve been 5-6 months pregnant at most at the time of the wedding. When she has a date, maybe you could just make your decision then? Or are you not allowed to travel at all when you get pregnant again? Maybe you could TTC so that you’d be due prior to the wedding, and if it doesn’t happen, take a few months off so you’ll only be 4-5 months along at the time of the wedding?

FreckledFox:  tough call. Do what’s right for you and your hubby and hopefully the rest will fall into place. Are you for sure starting TTC again in December? Or is that just a guestimate and you’ll see how you feel when you get there?

lalalalauren – I hope you enjoy your time in FL. Relax and try not to stress too much (easier said than done I know!)

Roll call:

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

MC History: Started TTC in January 2015, got first BFP on our third cycle, MC at 5 weeks exactly. BFP #2 in September after 5 cycles post-MC and it was a CP at 4 weeks exactly. This is our second cycle trying post-CP. (I had to look at my calendar… I’m starting to lose track! )

Issues (if any): None known. I can get pregnant, just have trouble staying pregnant. I am hypo but it’s well controlled with meds. 

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): We should be able to get some good timing in this cycle so I’m feeling optimistic! I take prenatals daily, use OPKs, and my OB has started me on baby aspirin and progesterone during LP. We were using PreSeed and still have some leftover, but I’m out of the little plungers and DH isn’t a fan of using it like regular lube lol 

Link to chart: N/A I don’t temp so it’s not very exciting!

What are your biggest challenges right now? Trying to stay positive and patient when it seems that everyone around me is either pregnant or just had a baby. The five cycles between my MC and CP felt like an eternity, so I’m really hoping my next BFP doesn’t take as long… and is a sticky baby of course!!

Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes: I’ve really taken a deep breath and a step back since my CP. I was starting to lose faith for a while after my MC, and even though my second BFP wasn’t sticky, it was kind of comforting to know I am able to get pregnant as long as we have some decent BD timing! Now I feel like I’m just along for the ride… it will happen when it happens. It’s also made me realize how ready DH and I are for this next step and how badly we want to be parents!

Just for fun: Who is your celebrity crush? Tom Hardy, all day. I’ve also had a major girl crush on Margot Robbie lately lol

Roll call:

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

MC History: MC at 6 weeks in August of 2013, MC at 11 weeks early September 2015

What are your biggest challenges right now? staying positive. I’m just so afraid of having another loss. I’m so afraid I’m not going to be able to have another child. I’m pissed that when I do get a positive test, I will be scared and nervous rather than excited. 

Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes: ice cream, wine, gin and tonic

Just for fun: Who is your celebrity crush? Channing Tatum, John Cusak, Christian Slater, Nathan Fillion!!

Glasgowbound:  Thanks ladies. It’s so tough! No one told me that I’m not “allowed” to travel, but I wouldnt feel comfortable traveling after 24 weeks due to my risk of preterm labor. (like 10%). I mean, i could find a nearby hospital and obviously call 911, god forbid… but I’d rather be home. My goal is to conceieve on the first try (yeah right), and deliver in August. Miss the bridal shower and Bachelorette party BUT be there at the wedding WITH my husband and baby. He would be baby sitter and im sure she would understand if i needed to tend to them throughout the day.thats IF she has the wedding in Nov. Baby would be aboue 2.5 months old. Small but not impossible even for a term/ almost preemie (37 weeker). So right now… thats my crazy goal.. she hasnt looked at any venues yet… so im dreading when she does. But i keep telling her to do what makes her happy because i am too.

Forgot about this!

Roll call:

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

MC History: Not exactly a MC, but a loss. We started TTC Aug 2014, got pregnant Dec 2014, started bleeding Jan 2015 (subchorionic hematoma), water broke at 17w April 2015 probably due to bleeding , Grady was born June 2015 @ 28+6, passed away July 2015.

Issues (if any):  None that I know. One count of preterm labor. But that’s been called a “fluke”.

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc):  That won’t be until minimum Dec, so I guess just trying to eat healthy and take my prenatals to start.

What are your biggest challenges right now?  Well aside from trying to plan around a wedding that may or may not happen when i may or not be due…. just overall getting through day to day sadnesses. Seeing people having their 6th babies… newborns born in September. Happy moms.

Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes:  “Beautiful Girl, you can do hard things” Its the background of my phone right now. as is “The pain you have been feeling can’t compare to the joy that is coming”. 

Just for fun: Who is your celebrity crush? Charlie Day  😉 or really any skinny funny brunette men with scrubby beards. Bonus if they have an accent.

Roll call:

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

MC History: TTC since ~July/August 2014. Pregnant Oct. 2014. MCd in January at 12 weeks. Several months of left over tissue issues. Finally able to TTC again in May 2015. This is cycle 5 or 6 of trying again. I lost count.

Issues (if any): Doctor thinks he found a large polyp during my D&C in April but it was never tested. He says it’s common for them to come back and can cause fertility issues. I’m stressing because it’s been 6 months since my D&C with no luck. Hoping we can have success before another polyp shows up.

Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): Second cycle temping. Using PreSeed and taking prenatals.

What are your biggest challenges right now? Feeling utterly defeated and hopeless.

Just for fun: Who is your celebrity crush? Lately I’ve had a weird crush on James Spader. I’ve been watching too much Blacklist on Netflix. Haha. I don’t find him attractive, but I love his confidence and voice.
