* Bitter Sushi Ladies ~ November *

post #1 of 211
Thread Starter 
Welcome to the November Thread Ladies!!!!

Most of us are former TTC 6+ Month ladies. And at this point, many of us are at or past 12 months, many have had losses, many are dealing with various forms of infertility, and some are just in a waiting period until they can TTC again.

The name? Well... we tend to be a little bitter sometimes. So read with care . And due to everything, our emotions run a little raw . This TTC business is something that seems to "just happen" for so many... but we just can't get "it" right. So this is where we can "be together", share and express anything.

Some of us have gotten a little quieter lately... there is only so much you can post in the "I want to be PG, but I'm not" category. However we are here in spirit and most likely LURKING!

awwww feel better. I hope it's just a cold. Have you been vaccinated from the swineflu/flu since you are a teacher??? I am still debating whether to get ANY shot. I am so against all prenatal shots and people keep telling me all these freaky stats about how I NEED to be vaccinated. I hope you get to go to the appt on monday .

So sad to have been bumped off all the "success stories"

For some reason I feel great today. Lots of energy and a general good mood. Weird. Must be all the vitamins I'm taking. I almost feel like my old self, and by "old self" I mean before I was TTC!

I am so sorry enigo... I really hope your good mood continues and you get pg RIGHT away. If it helps, and it probably won't, but my gf had a difficult time getting pregnant at first, then had a miscarriage, and the next month she was pregnant again right away and today she just went into labor. I really hope you catch that next egg
post #6 of 211
I know it'll happen. Initially I had hoped my son would have had a brother a little closer in age. At this point they'd be 4 years apart if I got pregnant right away. Now I'll just be happy with a healthy baby....but soon OK? I really need to get on with my life.

afm - oh no, swine flu? Could be....shakes, chills, deep chest coughing, and 100.9 fever hit today. that's not too high, but....I have five kids out every day this week, and two confirmed swine flu cases among my students. aaaargh!!! And for the weekend, too! I hope I don't have to miss my appoitnment on Monday!
thanks for the reassurance - and i hope you feel better and that it is not swine flu!!! and that you feel SO much better by tomorrow and then awesome for your appointment monday! and THANK YOU for the new thread, you rock!

AFM- Ok, so I had my appointment this morning.
thank you - and sounds like your appointment went great! yay for a plan of action!

AFM, I think tonight I will be sealing the deal that i will get pg soon. we are getting me a new car. (new to me) it is unnecessarily expensive. it is more car than I need.
thanks to you as well for reassurance about testing during AF. i definitely feel way less like a crazy person now. i mean, my mom had period-like bleeding when she was pregnant with me, and I'M here! i mean, it's obviously possible! but you still feel like a loon, testing when you are bleeding. meanwhile i still feel like i'm about to barf all over town and i'm super sleepy. gah! i hate nausea. it is so not okay.

anyway, i don't think the 3rd row jinxes you - i hope this car is to your BFP as white pants are to AF. or something? you know what i mean. maybe, anyway. i haven't had coffee today because of my stomach, so god knows what i'm blathering on about.

that it is super super soon!!

afm nothing exciting, trying soy again this cycle. i also really need to be eating more healthily but it is just not happening. i feel so unmotivated! sigh. i'm feeling SUPER bitter today. it doesn't help that everyone on my facebook is posting either new baby pictures or pregnancy pictures this morning! i was feeling rather grouchy ANYWAY, and the belly pics are bumming me out like whoa.

I hope you feel better Tear around here the flu is not that bad. A few days out and then as long as there are no complications, back in the action. Rest and heal

I am still here in this thread. I subbed so I can keep up with you guys

I had a *moment* today. DH told me that my boobs looked a great deal bigger, and they are very sore, but I just Od, and I have the chart to prove it. No chances this month, but even though we are where we are, I still have the urge to test and the wish to see that second line

to you all

Oh sweetie, I'm sorry you're feeling icky. I hope it IS a mild swine flu and you get over it quickly so that you can then get pregnant and not have to worry about getting vaccinated OR sick and really ill. I love you.

Thanks Tear for the new thread and I hope your brush with the flu is short lived and you get better soon!

I've been really horrible about personals lately but I'm still reading!

Lauren, this totally flew by me in my haze, sorry. The vaccine isn't really available in our area, as far as I've been able to find out. Hopefully now I won't need to worry about it. I don't know what my decision would be, and I'm sorry you're being exposed to "freaky stats." I don't think anybody really knows for sure. From my experience with this bugger, the crappiness is in the respiratory part. I have been wheezy and coughing like crazy. The first day every time I coughed I would gag. I technically fall under one of the "at risk" groups since I have asthma, though my asthma isn't that bad these days. I did have moments yesterday when my breathing was "whistly." Ok, why am I saying this? I think to help you decide. I wasn't sure if I would vaccinate, and now that I think I had it, I say it wasn't that bad. (knocks repeatedly on wood) My mom said that the reason pregnant women are being urged to vaccinate is because of the respiratory part, and that they don't have as much lung capacity farther along. I don't know if that's accurate though. I hope this is coming across as informative and not obnoxious or "freaky." I hope you stay healthy and don't have to deal with this at all.

enigo, I'm so sorry you're off the success stories lists. I hope with all of my heart that I get to put you back on there soon. I'm glad that you're feeling "pre-ttc" good! I hope that lasts. How did you get there, I want to come too!

LZP, thanks for asking how I'm doing...sorry it took me so long to respond. I got super busy during the week, then got sick. I'm 9dpo...when did that happen? I haven't been able to chart the last two days, and that's probably helping. I've thought about not temping at all anymore, but I want to have as much data as possible for the RE...that is, if they want it. How are you?

Carlyle thanks for being my cheerleader. And might I say, I LOVE your pink name and new title. Congrats!

JustKiya, when are you getting back? I'm on pins and needles for you! How was your trip?

Court if I remember correctly, you should be somewhere near the end of your tww by now? You're usually a few days ahead of me. How are you?

lisko weren't you sick with this a week ago? How're you feeling, girl?

ok..I'm out of steam. Everybody else, and check in! Miss y'all!

afm - obviously I'm feeling better, as measured by the length of my post. lol...Only too tylenol once today when my temp crept back up over 101. I won't be going to work tomorrow, not yet sure about the appointment. I think I'll call and ask if they'll still see me.

I hope it's ok I took over the thread..I think YYYM said she was leaving it open for anybody, and I figured...since I had nothing better to do than stare at the ceiling. Maybe I could use some threadkeeper's luck.
post #18 of 211
Tear Thanks for the new thread lady! And I hope you get to go to your appointment today. I just came by to check and see if you were feeling better. Please check in later and give us an update.

devastated x-posted

I called the RE to see if I could still come to my appointment since I've had the flu this weekend, and they said no, and the EARLIEST STUPID APPOINTMENT THEY HAVE FOR ME IS 11/30!!! I'm so crushed. ANOTHER cycle is going to go down the tubes. Oh..and their reason why they don't want me in is because they have to be really careful because they have pregnant women in their office. oh, well, whoopdie doo! good for them! I'll just go back to my pitiful, swine-flu filled, NON-pregnant life and keep out of your hair then. I'm so upset. I didn't have to tell them, y'know!!! I could have just gone! I DON'T BELIEVE THEM THAT THEY CAN'T FIT ME IN BEFORE THEN!

(Nanette, thanks for asking )
post #20 of 211
Oh Tear!!! that is aweful. I have to say, if I'd been waiting for that appt like you have, no matter how selfish, I'd have gone to the appt. I'd have just covered my mouth well, tried not to breathe, not touched anything, and gone. You are so sweet to have called ahead to ask, and they should have rewarded your sweetness with a closer appt.
I know these doctors have tight schedules, but once your a patient, I think it becomes easier. So, just one last hurdle, hopefully.

Who knows, maybe you wont need that appt EVER, and this was just things aligning the way they ought to be.

I'm so sorry that this news came while you're still in the flu-like fog, too. i have been so rooting for you, and i think your threadkeepers luck might just be here.

as for everyone else, HI!

Beloved, I totally would be where you are. i think I tested more often last cycle when we were NT/NA! Not TTC is really something that will take time to grieve. it's a loss. and it might not be forever, so do stick around here. I want us all to be surprised by a BFP from you when you were least expecting it!

sorry for lack of pther personals, i have a lot of work to do today. eww.

AFM, hmm.. CD something. wont know till i go to FF, which is no longer the first thing i do when i turn on my comp! i think that's a big step, right? I had gushes of CM this weekend, along with some EW last night. of course, DH is in California until Weds night, so who knows if i'm missing an opportunity. I am not good at NT/NA, since i just can't stand the thought of missing a "chance." we did get the new car, so here I am, with a totally unnecessarily large vehicle... but boy, i've never been so excited about keeping a car "forever!" this baby will be with us for decades, I bet!

If we dont get pg soon, I'll start making little blankets for the car. and buying little accessories for it. and toys. it will become my little pet. Maybe I'll get a tiny dog that i can carry in a bag with me too... oh, that little mini-daschund of my dreams. Frank.
yup. i've lost it.
