Thanks so much to all of you for your support and kind words! It really helped me process that icky ER experience. I am touched.
I also appreciated hearing from those of you who have had multiple chemicals. WaturMama
, I will definitely PM you to ask about your local TCM and RE people. Karen1968
, this time it was indeed a blue-dye test! When this has happened in the past, I've always repeated it with both types of dye, and gotten double positives. But hearing this about the false positives, I think I will just avoid blue dye in the future. Thanks for letting me know.Ompath
, how's the energy? I like your idea of creating a thread for discussion of the inevitable discussion!Jenjersnap
, did you ever figure out whether you O'd? I'm curious to hear how you like your O predictor paraphernalia?Contactmaya
, I bet that smudge is a positive! Have you tested again?MsGB
, how are you doing? You know, I would just add to the support others are giving you about not worrying about college tuition costs, etc. My parents were *broke* when I went to college, and I funded it entirely with loans and part-time work, and it all worked out. I had *great* college and grad school experiences, and have never regretted the cost. My parents gave me what I really needed, their amazing love and support.WaturMama
, any news??? Your symptoms sound so promising! I'm thinking of you!
We saw our RE today and I'm feeling better about everything. He was a pretty cool, quirky character who was supportive of TCM and generally encouraging to us. He believes I've been having a series of chemical pregnancies. Since my hormones look good, our next step is ruling out anatomical issues that could be preventing implantation, so I have an U/S and a saline sonogram lined up, plus more bloodwork to look at chromosomes for DH and me. We asked about progesterone suppositories, and he said I don't need them because my prog was 14, but said it wouldn't hurt, so he ordered them for me anyway.
One unexpected monkey wrench came up... because I have a small arterial-vascular-malformation in my brain (that has never given me any problems, not even when pg with DD), I now have to get clearance from my neurologist before getting pg.
This month I'm going to be out of state when I O, ack! Maybe DH and I will just have to spend some special time together on the way to the airport...
