A little bummed about AF coming today. I was looking forward to a little October baby! So we'll aim for November now. Looks like we'll start TTC next weekend sometime.

Sandra I am sorry af showed. I hope we both get to stay in November! I worry that with the bad weather in Ohio I will get a December baby in the middle of a storm and have an unwanted home birth!

I hope November is the month for both of you. I think I'm out in November as well, but I'm antsy to be able to start thinking about TTC. I'm going to start charting once I can locate my bbt. Ugh.

Ashly, it's a good thing I live across the street from the hospital Biggrin since winter storms are a little crazier up here in the Canadian prairies! Still, no fun to head to the hospital in labour in -40 degrees, even if it is across the street!

Lisa, I hope your body gets back in the groove soon.

Lisa, do you think you will be trying for Nov?

Sandra at least you live across the street! We are about 50 minutes from the hospital that I would deliver at and once my water breaks there better be a Dr! Plus we live in the snowbelt so the weather is always nasty here in the country!

There is a hospital 5 minutes away but I don't know any of the Ob's I would be sad to not have my own Dr!

I'm not sure Ashly, Dr gave me the "give it 2 cycles before trying again" but I think that's the whole general statement. I don't think we'll "try" this next month but not prevent it. But I'm so ready to have our baby. Especially now. My appointment with the Dr for the follow up is on the 18th, so I definitely want to wait until then to make sure it all looks good, and that there isn't anything to worry about for future TTC.

I was reading their pamphlet about the process what they do with the m/c'd babies. They do a couple preliminary tests (such as hormone). Testing usually doesn't find a reason that the baby passed. But then a local mortuary collects the babies, cremates, and spreads their ashes in a garden they have dedicated to all the babies that have been missed. It was so heartwarming to read that such a business does such a great thing. Really heartwarming.

Lisa, that sounds so lovely for the m/c babes.

When I had my m/c at 8 weeks, my family doc told me to wait 3 months, and the doc at the hospital said I could start right away, so we met them in the middle and waited 2 months, then got pregnant with Ella right away.

Lisa, I understand your feelings. After my 1st I was pregnant and we lost a baby my midwife said that you can wait but you don't have too. I waited till I had a period and I got pregnant right away with my second. I have high hopes for you and I will pray for you. That is so nice that they spread the ashes in a garden it's so sweet. When we lost our baby I was farther along than you but we decided to keep the baby is seattle for medical use. They can find out a lot about mc through testing everything and collecting dna and all that stuff. I was sad but happy at the same time that we might be able to help undertand the reasoning behind a mc.

Ok enough with the sad things!

Sandra- Is there anything you might try this cycle that you have not done before? I know it's only your second try but didnt you say hubby wasn't around much?

AFM- I don't really get any cm so I tried to talk to hubby about the pre-seed they sell and he really wasn't into trying that. But I think I might buy it and ask him to try it a few times. I am going into my fertile period and would love to get pregnant this cycle and pre-seed is all natural.

I've heard awesome things about preseed. I think it would be a great thing.

I am going to just pick up some pre-seed. I am sure once I get home and show him it will work out. Hopefully I can make some time to get to the store for it!

Well our stupid van broke down and wont be ready til Tuesday so I have no way of getting to the store, hubby has been getting a ride to work so I might not make it to get pre-seed but another mom on my charting board said vedgetable oil is like pre-seed so I did some reasearch on it and it sounds like a lot of drs and midwifes suggest that. So I might try that this next few days.

Really? I thought that water soluble was important when used. I didn't realized that veggie oil can be used as well. That's really interresting.

Ashly, I see your ticker says you O today!!! Were you able to get the van fixed?

I hope everyone had a great v-day.

As for me, I'm glad it's over, I've had a very rough few days. I stopped bleeding and was so excited, but started bleeding again yesterday. Today, nothing so far, so I'm thinking I'll be seeing some of that within the next few days (basically a medium flow). I got my follow up appointment on Friday. I'm hoping that everything looks good, and I'll be able to actively TTC right away.

Ashly, Sandra, how are things going?

I went to see my MW today and got the all clear. She said to wait two cycles, but then whispered "if you can't I hope to see you very soon." So I'm excited to get to trying again!!!!!

Lisa~ Yahoo I'm so glad she's okay with your not preventing. After my miscarriage I really wanted to just hurry up and get pregnant again, but then after my first AF post m/c, I realized I had some issues to take care of first (my gall bladder and UTI's mainly).

I hope you can achieve a healthy pregnancy VERY soon. :bigarmhug:

It's baby making week again : )

I should be Oing sometime soon....it's CD 13 today! Gotta do some baby dancing tonight!

Lisa, that's so great - at least she's not telling you DON'T do it.

Well, the baby making is over now, on to the 2WW. I think we've got a better shot this month than last month. I really hope that this month works out for us, because if we have to go again next month, the DD would be right before Christmas (which would suck). And if next month doesn't work either, then we have to put TTC on hold for about 6 months. (There's no way we can have the baby in January-May, it's busy season for DH at work and he'd not be able to take any time off to help) If we don't get a BFP in the next 2 months, then we'll be waiting until August to try again.

It's CD 18 today, I think I'm about 4 DPO. I had some massive cramping for a few hours on 2 DPO, no idea why.

We are in the process of moving to VT. Griffin and I fly out of San Fran tomorrow and DH started the drive cross country today. It has been hell week. Friday was one of the worst days of my life. BUT the hard part is over.
I also got some new meds from my dr for my medical condition, and hopefully I'll be totally healthy in a few weeks and we can start TTC in the next few months! I want to wait until our new health insurance kicks in anyway, and to de-stress from the chaos of our huge move before we add another project to our list.
Good luck this month to those actively TTC!

Maggie~ Congrats on the move. You are moving closer to family, right? I hope you are able to settle down quickly and able to recoop from the stress. It is a difficult life change, isn't it?. :bigarmhug:

Your chart is looking great. When your temps keep climbing at the end of your cycle. That's a GOOD LOOKING CHART.

OOH yes, The world wants to know!!! Biggrin

AFM - I thought I had some good news with my chart a few days ago about O'ing, but my temp has dropped so much too many times that I have no idea what's going on with my cycle, and I'm back in Limbo. UGH. I just wanna know.

Lisa~ I hope you figure out what your body is doing. It sucks being in limbo.

AFM, we have not scheduled the big u/s yet, but when I see my doc next on the 7th, I'm sure it will be scheduled. I'm 14 weeks now, so we are looking at April before we know. *sigh* 1 month away! Yahoo

Well the verdict is in, not pregnant. She said I did ovulate and that the fertility dr said 6 months so now 5. She said she knew how upset I was.

I told myself not to get excited and to expect the worse and honestly I am so bummed and upset. Even though I tell myself I am going to not be crazy about ttc and just let things happen and take it's course its so hard to do. This new cycle will be 16 months. Heres to getting a Christmas baby!

I think I'm out of luck this month too. AF isn't due for another 6 days or so, but I just don't feel any symptoms at all. Crap.

I don't want to be insensitive because I know this is only month 2 trying for us, but this is new territory for me. All 3 times I've been pregnant, it happened in one month. I was spoiled! Guess I need to share some of my baby dust now Biggrin

My chart is werid! Af was due yesterday but she did not show my temp did go down and now it's back up? Hmmm...

So I contacted ruby raines today and asked if she could update my reading she gave me. She said I would get pregnant with twins feb 2011. She said she would for free and will get back to me. So we will see what she says.

I'm curious what she would have said. Lol

Janelle- I never got my free one back either!

Here is what Ruby gave me as my updated prediction-I see a find out with a positive test OR conceive OR give birth in MARCH. So either find out with a positive test OR conceive THIS MARCH OR GIVE BIRTH MARCH 2012. I am seeing a twin boy and girl.

WAHOO!! Yes, I hope it's finding out this march too! She's really got her thoughts on twins with you! You're 17 dpo now, have you tested?
