CocoBird-I'm sorry you have been falling. That does sound unnerving.  I definitely recommend a chiropractor for the rib pain.  Mine has only been very mild, but I had it for a couple days to where it hurt to breathe and I went to the chiropractor and it felt better.  It also helps when I sleep with a pillow under my belly.  My chiro does the Webster Technique which is just for pregnant folks.  I don't know if it's all because of that, but I have had relatively few pains...

Hello marcyse and Welcome to Mothering!  I'm sorry you had mean responses to your questions in the past.  That kind of response doesn't make sense to me.  TTC is tough and compassion is the best response.   1) We did see a counselor once while TTC.  She worked specifically with the fertility department through my health care provider.  I have heard other women attend support groups and found that to be helpful. 2) What is a WTF appointment?  Is that like, "WTF is...
