July 30-Something Mamas TTC #2 or more - Page 10

post #181 of 269
I don't know what you girls are drinking, but please send me some.

CONGRATS to all of you and sticky vibes to all of you.

Callie: As for ttc a girl, it's a hope at this point. At the begining we were stoping bd before O, but thought we were ruining our chances period. I have read the girl diet thing, but oh my what a crazy plan that seems. Very restrictive, and lime doushing and stuff. I don't think I'm there yet. But if anyone has tried it and says it works do tell me their story. I know I'd be happy with a boy too, but a girl would be so wonderful!!!

Hi ladies -

My beta results came back and have dropped. It's a miscarriage.

I want to thank everyone here SO much for your encouragement and sticky vibes and support you've given me, especially over the last week. It's means so much to me.

All the BFPs this month have brought me joy and while I am so heartbroken that I can't join you all in the DDCs, I'll be cheering for you.

I might not be posting for a little while, but I'll probably lurk a bit to see how everyone is doing.

BTW, I know sometimes people ask if they should chart their cycles - my answer to that will always be YES! If I had not been charting my temps, I might not have realized I was pregnant this cycle, since I thought I had already started AF. I really believe that charting gives us a lot of information to help us when we are TTC.

Jennabella, I am so sorry . Lot's of 's for you.

Nothing new with me, still waiting to O. I'm on CD 12 today, should O by CD 20, I hope.

Ugh, I had some bright red spotting this morning. That prompted me to go ahead and call the birth center to find out about setting an appointment for an HSG and/or endometrial biopsy. We talked about it a couple of months ago, but I wasn't ready to go there yet. Now I am. I want to go ahead and get the procedure(s) scheduled for next cycle. If I end up with a BFP, I can cancel the appts. I just don't understand why I keep on spotting. What is wrong with me?! Obviously it's not progesterone, or the suppositories would help. *sigh*

ETA:

Mollie - Are you done with Clomid for this cycle, then? Does it usually help you to O earlier?
post #190 of 269
Callie - I'm so sorry AF seems to have arrived (although with it just spotting, could there still be a chance it's not AF?). Wishing you lots of luck for your appt, although I'm hoping you'll have to cancel it because of a BFP.

AFM:I'm just taking it one day at a time, because that's really all we can do. I'm not able to respond to everyone individually right now, but I do appreciate your thoughts and support SO much. It's a comfort to know people are thinking of me right now and I just love the hug smileys. Thank you so much.

Callie- Thinking of you. I so wish they could get this junk figured out. My fingers are always crossed for you.

Callie, popping back in from BSL to say sorry I started spotting this morning, too, and once it turns to full flow, I'm supposed to call to get an appt for a HSG for sometime next week. (We had our first RE appt on T, and worked out a testing/diagnostic plan.) Anyway, so sorry, and hope we both get some answers soon!

I am so sorry you're spotting yet again . I hope you get some answers, or better yet, a BFP! I wish I had the answers you need.

I'm done with Clomid; I took CD 3-7, the same as when I got my BFP last time. I don't O on my own, but I average CD 18-20 for O days.

Jennabella: So sorry sweetie.

Callie: glad to hear you went ahead and made appointments, so you will feel like your moving ahead, I agree you can always cancel them. So Sorry about the spotting.
post #195 of 269
Jenna, im so sorry for your loss, you are in my thoughts

Callie, sorry to hear about AF I hope that you can find some answers at the clinic or better yet and BFP before then!

***
One more day of Clomid for me.. I think I actually stated it it late (CD6) but my Dr counted at CD5 and I wont fight with him! I started on CD6 when I conceived the first time so what can it hurt? The metformin is making me feel very icky and cranky, but its worth it
post #196 of 269
Wow -- a few days offline and so much happens. for the new BFP's!

And for those with spotting/AF. Ugh.

And finally a truly big big to Jennabella. I so know where you are, and it just stinks. Hard to keep having faith in your body after a loss, but we can do it. I am sure of it.

AFM -- I had super early O this month (CD 12) and so I am on 9DPO today. The only real weird symptom I am noticing is that I am getting low blood sugar every few hours, and it makes me feel all shaky and loopy. Not sure if that is a preggy symptom, but I hope so because otherwise it is a little worrisome! I did have my thyroid checked along with my progesterone yesterday (CD21). Maybe those results will give me some clue as to what is up?

Keep hanging in there mamas! We have some great momentum this month!

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.

Mollie - 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

heavensearth-Hopefully the Clomid works and it was all worth it!

slinkyfish-I think low blood sugar could be a preggy thing, but 9 dpo seems a bit early, but who knows?

Tulpen88-Sorry to hear about the awkwardness at the MNO. It's nice that they were trying to spare your feelings, but I'm sure it felt weird to have them tiptoe around you.

Mama~Love-fingers crossed for a BFP!

justthinkn- about AF coming.

AFM-Not much going on. Getting ready to O, so we're BD like crazy. I think my temp this morning is way off. DD started crying at around 4 am, which woke me up. I took my temp then since I knew that I would not be getting 3 more hours of solid sleep. It was much lower than yesterday, which was odd. I think it could have been that the time was off by at least an hour though (they've been going through a 5 am wake up phase).

Callie: I feel like this too, I had a honeymoon baby, 1st month off bc. But that was a long time ago, and I have a feeling there is some problems in my girl parts. I'm not there yet, but I think I'm turning into that person too!! I'm trying really hard not to tell people, cuz I don't want to be analyzed, or tiptoed around. It's hard not to talk though about the one thing, I'm obsessed with.

We did not tell our families we were trying to conceive until we were pregnant. Obviously, after two miscarriages, they know now. But they don't know how long it's been, that we've been trying for a year. And they haven't asked how long (although I'm sure at this point they are wondering). Honestly, they've been great about not asking a lot of TTC questions, which I appreciate because I think it would make me feel pressured. But we do have a couple friends who know and it's nice to have that support.
