slinkyfish - Wow, strange about the low blood sugar. Is that something that you've had problems with in the past? 9 dpo seems a little early for a pregnancy to affect blood sugar, but who knows? Stranger things have happened, I'm sure. When will you get the results of your testing?
Serena - Sorry the metformin is making you feel bad!
that this will all be worth it in the end! BTW, every time I type your name, I think how much I love the name Serena.
I just thought I'd let you know. It's a beautiful name.
for an O soon! I am praying for you to get a BFP this cycle.
justthinkin - Thanks for the support. I'm sorry you're spotting too.
Does it feel better knowing that you have a plan, at least?
AFM - Thanks for the hugs & support everyone. I do want to say that this is NOT AF. At least not yet. It's normal for me to spot throughout my LP, even starting early. But my temps are fine and I definitely don't expect AF until next week.
So I had a long talk with the nurse at the birth center yesterday and we worked out a little plan. She's going to take my chart to chart review on the first Tues of August. They meet with their OBGYN at chart review and are able to get more opinions. So she'll see what the OBGYN and other midwives think. In the meantime, we've scheduled an endometrial biopsy for later that week. If I get a BFP or if they decide at chart review that I'd be better off having different testing done, then I'll cancel that appointment.
Question for you all, especially those who have had some trouble TTC - does your family know that you're TTC? Do you talk to your parents about any of this stuff? I haven't told my parents that we're TTC, although I think they probably know b/c I told my mom that we would be trying for another baby. Part of me wants to talk to her and tell her what's been going on. I haven't wanted many people to know that we're TTC because I don't want people to ask me how it's going or for them to analyze everything I'm doing to try to figure out if I'm pregnant.
Oh, and that reminds me. So I went to that mom's night out on Weds, and everyone there knows that I'm TTC and they know that it's taking longer than we expected and that I have these issues with spotting. So one of the girls asked me how TTC was going (just 2 weeks after I had told them about all this stuff), and I just kind of laughed and said, well, you know... we're having lots of sex.
And then later we were all talking about TTC stuff, and everyone there had gotten pregnant within 5 cycles of trying. And they were all uncomfortable talking about how "easy" it was around me... and they were apologizing to me for talking about it. It felt SO strange. I got pregnant on the first try with DS. I was always the girl who was careful about talking about TTC around other people who were having trouble. And now I'm that person? I don't feel like that person. And I really don't want people to tiptoe around me. I'm not going to start crying, you know? Anyway, I just thought that was kind of crazy! :P
