Emily - interesting chart! It will be one to watch
My spotting finally stopped several days ago, I guess it was just a random thing. I started taking my temp 3 days ago since this cycle was being a weirdo and it looks like I may have o'd yesterday. Funny, I didn't have my usual o cramping-with-major-bloat this time, though I did have a little cramping late last night as I was going to sleep. Maybe I slept through it, lol. If I did o yesterday, we have zero chance this month, but that's nothing new.
Anything exciting going on this weekend? I have TWO Christmas parties to attend back to back. Should be fun!
hey ladies. Just jumping in to share my thoughts. A year ago this week i found out i was pregnant with our 3rd child. We were PSYCHED and told everyone right away. One week later i started heavy bleeding and found out we miscarried. My heart was totally broken for a while. Since it was such an early loss we decided to not wait to try again and i got pregnant again the next cycle. As i sit here looking at my 3 month old son sleeping in his bed i can't help but be thankful, and yet also sad for my loss. I feel almost guilty to still think of our other child, since without that loss i wouldn't have my son...but i still think what if....
My pregnancy was totally normal and in fact my son was born about 3.5 weeks early, just after my lost child's due date...i think about that a lot and wonder why...it just seems weird. So to all of you ladies still coping with a loss...it does get easier...but you'll never forget...and i don't think we ever should either. They were our children too.
I still sometimes think about my first loss and the fact if I hadn't had the loss I wouldn't have my daughter. It's been 4 years now. It isn't so raw and sore, but it is still there any always will be. I'm past the EDD of my first loss for this year and would've been past half way with the second.
I'm gearing up to O I think. Feeling less than positive about it all
EDDs are hard. Hard to block out the "what could have been"s. Coming up on what could have been a 3rd birthday for my first loss. How would life be different with a 3 year old in addition to my 5 and 1 year olds? I don't think about it often, but there's a special ornament (a willow tree angel) I hang on the Christmas tree every year on the EDD to commemorate both of my losses, and that gets me all wistful and reflective.
FF took away my crosshairs again. No idea what's going on with this cycle. One of my early PP cycles with DD was something ridiculous like 8 weeks. Hope this one isn't that long!
Hi Guys. Sorry I haven't posted on here for awhile. A little update on me. As many of you know three years ago after DD3 was born I had my tubes tied. I did this because I had so many pregnancy complications. (4 miscarriages, low progesterone, pre-eclampsia, Gestational Diabetes, PROM, preterm labor, and 3 preemie little girls) We almost lost my youngest several times throughout the pregnancy and decided it would be the best thing to do to have my tubes tied. Fast forward to a few months ago. I noticed my breast were leaking so on a whim decided to take a pg test. To my dismay there was a very faint second line. That pregnancy ended in a 5th miscarriage. I went today and had an HSG to find out if my tubes are still blocked. The technician would not tell me anything, but after looking at pictures online, it looked to me like the right tube is open at least partially. I am hoping my doctor will call me with the results tomorrow. This has been such an emotional rollercoaster of a few months! Not sure where we will go from here, but I do not think we would do anything to prevent at this point.
That must be hard Bonita. I can't even imagine. You sound like you haven't given up hope, so I hope for you that if you do conceive that this time the odds are in your favour.
I'm in the 2ww. I'm quite ambivalent right now. Actually, I'm pessimistic so I'm making myself be ambivalent as that is better than misery.
So much for understanding the test myself. Doctors office just called. My tubes are completely blocked and he has no idea how I could have gotten pregnant in the first place. If there were a tiny pin whole so small that it was not showing up on the test, the only possibility would be a tubal.
I'm sorry, Bonita.
loss ment I'm back. Unfortunately, I started to m/c again yesterday. I was just shy of 5 weeks, so at least it was a lot earlier this time.
