I was going to post this the other day but with Gollum’s bad news it didn’t seem appropriate-I’m pregnant again. This cycle was immediately after MC; my doctor didn’t mention waiting but was rather dismayed when I called her to ask for betas. My last MC was at 5+4 weeks so I didn’t see the value in waiting & since I’m charting, I have an accurate gestational age.
I am still very worried since my last pregnancy didn’t progress at all; My betas at 18DPO were 34 & 50 a week later and my BFP’s were both super faint on frers @ 16 & 19DPO (nothing ..
I’ve been taking cheepie tests since 14DPO (I’m 17DPO today) and the fact that they’re getting darker is very encouraging. At the same time I can’t wait to see a nice dark line, that tells the control how it is!!
So here are my tests… I’m still so on edge. Everyone has a good feeling about this pregnancy, but until I get my betas back (probably monday or tuesday) I can’t exhale.

@MrsRugbee: Congratulations! That’s really wonderful!! FX to you for a sticky baby!
I got a phone call about an hour ago that my best friend is pregnant again. I have to admit that while I’m happy for her, I’m throwing a major pity party for myself right now. I feel like an awful friend, but I can’t stop crying. I know that I’ve messed up my first cycle since we’ve been allowed to try again and I’m just so mad at myself.
This process is absolutely gut wrenching.

@MrsRugbee: you are sweet- that is encouraging news and i am very happy for you and wish you the very best of luck with this one! hoping to hear some good news about your levels when the weekend is over!
@lroetheli: I think we’re just going to take it easy and ntnp for a month. Maybe my crazy long cycles will make for enough uterine lining if something were to happen…

@gollum: @timesinfinity: I am so sorry for both of your losses. I know there is nothing anyone can really say to make you feel better. Just know that we have all been there and we know how you feel. This is a great group of supportive women. I hope you find some solace here. xx
@KateByDesign: I know how you feel. I live in constant fear of pregnancy announcements. FB is an emotional land mine. I hung out with one of my closest girlfriends yesterday. She knows all the details of what Darling Husband and I have been through. She is getting married in August and has always said she and her fiancé are planning to wait awhile before ttc. Usually our conversation goes back and forth between her wedding plans and mine and DH’s adventures in ttc. So yesterday she comes out with “oh I bought a stroller yesterday! It was a really great deal. I couldn’t pass it up”……ummmmm…..OK……you bought a what now?? Then she tells me she was over at her sisters place and went through all her clothes and took some really cute maternity stuff…….what??………then a comment “Did I tell you what I want to do for the baby’s room?”………No! Because you aren’t even trying to have a baby!! I was super annoyed and wanted to scream “Back off! Having a baby is MY thing right now! Your wedding is your thing. You can’t have both!” Lol. I know that’s completely irrational and not very supportive of me as a friend but you can’t help how you feel. Hang in there. Our turn is coming!
@MrsRugbee: congratulations! Fingers crossed this is your sticky baby!

New to this group- as I just miscarried/had a cp… whatever IDK which- but it was awful- over this past weekend (Happy Memorial Day!). I did not have to have anything done- it all passed naturally. (And to be honest- other than a few hours of some bad bad cramping- it wasn’t that bad physically. Emotionally- it took it’s toll)
Anyways, I went to the dr to have bloodwork to confirm that it is over… which I already know.. yesterday. I’m back to work today for my students’ last day of school. I don’t know why… I was FINE yesterday- but today- back to my “normal” routine of life… all I’ve wanted to do is cry.
I have a pretty intense doctor. I just started to go to him as of last Friday- but he’s very…. idk what the word is- but he is awesome. He’s an older doctor and in private practice- so he has a smaller group of patients- so that he can provide the best care that he can… We’ve met with him twice and he called me a few times over the weekend to check up and give me some info. I was referred to him by a close friend who just had a baby recently. I have nothing but good things to say about him.
My progesterone was basically non-existant.. so he’s given me a script for that and said to start taking it on day 17 of my cycle and that I need to start hpt’ing on day 25 each cycle that we try and he wants to see my on day 27 after i get a +. So we ahve a game plan for the next time around.
My question (finally- sorry I’m not talking about this with RL people- so I have a lot bottled up): Dr told me yesterday I need to wait atleast 2 cycles to let everything heal and be back on track. I asked him if i really had to wait 2… and he highly suggested that I did multiple times. I have done enough reading and I know that the feelings are mixed on this topic. But, I TRULY do not want to wait. But, I don’t want my doctor to be agrivated with me. I’m a rule follower (well.. sorta)- I am not doubting that maybe it would be best to wait the two months- but I just don’t want to. He said I’m young and I have no reason to rush this. Should I wait?
It took about 3 months of ttc to get our first pregnancy (after several of NPNT … or NTNP?)… I just don’t want this next one to take several more months of trying to get anywhere.
