Update for me (OT)

Hi ladies-
Again sorry I've been MIA lately. I've been popping in and lurking but just have not been shooting much at all lately and just in a funk. About 2-3 months ago, we had what the Dr. says was a chemical pregnancy (we've been trying for #2 for about 16 months now) so I feel off the mental cliff for a little while. We finally decided to go meet with an RE to get the actual ball rolling. Long story short, we started our first IUI cycle this month and I had my trigger and IUI this past weekend. I am in all kinds of O pain yesterday and today but hopefully that means all good things! Smile

In the middle of all of my being sad, we booked our first Disney trip! yahoo!!!! BUT if this cycle takes, I'll be 6 months preggo by then, so I'm thinking it will probably have to be postponed. It is working as a "life isn't so bad either way" outlook for me. If this works, then yay we're pregnant, we have to cancel Disney because we're pregnant!!!! And if it doesn't then we still get to go to Disney. Probably sounds dumb, but it is keeping me level. Wink

Missed you all! I'll try to be a little more present now. :):):)

((hugs)) and sorry for your loss. We've had two losses in the past year and now they are thinking I have fertility issues so I've been battling with my own mental cliff here too.

I hope the IUI does the trick and you are soon having to cancel that Disney trip Wink

It's understandable that you have been MIA, real life first.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Hope the IUI works out.

Jill!!! I'm so happy to see an update from you. I knew you were trying again, but I had no idea about the chemical. I'm so sorry to hear about that. I'm sure that you'll get some great help from your RE. Good luck to you! I can't wait to see a "mini Cooper" Wink LOL!

I hope you stick around, and continue to post. Photography can be such a release for me, and I hope it can be for you!

(((HUGS))) and prayers from me too. It's good to see a check in from you. I hope when your mom comes you can get the 3 year old shots you've been hoping to get.

Hang in there and post when you can.

Take care,

So sorry for your loss. I too have been there. My very first pg was a chem pg. A&A were the result of an IUI after trying for about 1.5 yrs. So if you ever need to talk/vent, I'll be happy to listen. I hope the IUI does the trick for you this time. :bigarmhug:
