Bonita-Your poor DD. Brandon had his 4-year appt. about a month ago and it was brutal...the worst one so far. She warned us it was going to be bad but it was just awful. The first thing they did was take his blood (the "real" way) and after that it was all downhill. Then came the four shots and he was screaming so hard. We took him out to dinner that night and we let him get whatever he wanted. I felt so bad for him though at his appt.

Hi ladies! I haven't been around much, but stopped by to check in on you all.
Jina, I am so, so sorry that you're going through this again. My losses have all, at least, been early ones - I can't imagine your pain right now, but am very glad that your doctor has an aggressive plan in place to find you some answers.
All I can offer is hugs and hope.
Val, I hope you get some good news at your appointment today. I also hope you get those 2 days off! You certainly deserve them!
Lenora, It sucks that your nurse got you sick. You would think since she's a nurse that she would know better and stay home! Ugh...I imagine having a cold while you're pregnant is no fun.
Lisa, I hope you are feeling better today and hope the wedding went well! Yay for O'ing....hope you catch that egg!!
Bonita, Awww poor Brianna. I'm glad she got through it and got Chick-fil-a as a treat! I'd get over getting bunch of shots for Chick-fil-a too!
Carole, Thank you and thanks for checking in! You've been missed! How have you been?
Hi to everyone else....I hope you are all doing well.
AFM, Thanks again ladies for all the support. I'm doing okay. I still haven’t cried. I haven’t gotten angry. I’m just in a very reflective mood. I’m just thinking about how unfair all this seems. Not just for me but for all the heartbroken ladies out there that deserves to hold their little babies instead of mourning them. My D&C is scheduled for this Friday so I'm just waiting for that. The only thing I'm annoyed by at this moment is that my pregnancy symptoms are not going away. In fact the nausea seems to be getting stronger and my hunger level is through the roof...how....funny. I've just been keeping busy by reading. I read the Hunger Games Trilogy this weekend and I'm sad that it's over. I started reading The Clan of the Cave Bear again but I'm looking for a much lighter read to take my mind off of things. Any recommendations?
Jina - You just amaze me!!! You are so wonderful and so strong. Sometimes I look at you (and others on this board) and I feel so selfish. I too wonder why our bodies can't realize and why we still have to go through the symptoms. Huge Hugs.
I sure wouldn't minds starting up the healthy living thread again.
AFM - It was quite funny yesterday when I handed DH a schedule. I said, "here's your schedule for the next couple days." and handed him a folded up piece of paper. He opened it and it said one word in large letters; SEX. I'm pretty sure I got my pre-o dip today, and we've been busy, and will continue just to make sure. I know, you guys don't need to know all this. But I'm so stinking determined this month.

TTC #3 Since Dec '09
Reed Aslan, Always in our prayers.
Big hugs Jina. I had lots of issues after my m/c because it was missed and I still had the same pregnancy symptoms. The symptoms are tolerable when you think you are pregnant but not when you know it is over What kind of testing will they start with?

Jina - more hugs, girl It is hard to still have the symptoms, I remember that all too well.
Bonita - sorry about the shots, that must have been pure torture for you. Bet you're glad it's over.
Lisa - I didn't mind you sharing that, it was hilarious! I should try that with my DH!
Hi to everyone else!
Sorry this is short, but gotta go and pick up Hannah from school. She's in school now, i can't believe it! Pre-K. 3 hrs a day. We decided she needed to be around other kids.
Still coming to the library. My computer is being stubborn about being fixed. Hope to catch up tomorrow!
Jina - You will be in my thoughts this Friday. ((HUGS)) I would love it if you started a new Healthy Living Thread! I am definitely working on getting healthier and would love to chat with you about it. Also, if anyone is on myfitnesspal.com, add me as a friend. I am Alissa_Sal over there too. It has been really helpful in motivating me to be healthier. As for light reads, try the Queen Betsy series by MaryJanice Davidson. Just be sure to start with Undead and Unwed (Book 1). I didn't know that it was a series when I started reading it. I just picked up one of the later books, and they don't stand alone very well - I was kind of lost until I figured out that it was a series and then started over beginning with book one. But they are really cute - Queen Betsy is the very unwilling queen of the Vampires who is obsessed shopping and designer shoes.
Lisa - woohoo! Have fun catching that eggie!
Bonita - Your poor DD! Sounds like her day was pretty bad for a while. I'm glad that she got a milk shake to make up for it.
AFM - Sorry I have been a little MIA. I just haven't been feeling the whole TTC thing lately, so I have been sticking more towards my beloved debate board. LOL But I am actually feeling a little less blue today, so that's good news. And Jina, I definitely want to do the Healthy Living Thread again with you. I did almost an hour on the rowing machine at the gym last night - I need somewhere to brag! LOL
-Alissa, mom to Tristan (5) and Reid (the baby!)
Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
