I really want to get to know some of the other mamas out there because everyone seems really great and I've been lurking like crazy. I've even started to post to a discussion a couple of times and then just canceled it instead of submitting. I hope I can get past this eventually. Maybe once I have my u/s next week, and it's good news, I'll feel more confident to join the club.
i'm following your suggestion & joining this PAL thread. i can also identify with your hesitation to post much at all, i haven't much so far either. i'd say don't be down on yourself for the hesitation, just understand our fears are ok. i don't think anyone holds it against you for lurking & not posting til you feel it's "safe".
can someone confirm my EDD & how pregnant i am right now?
here's my chart link showing this cycle & last month's that ended in loss: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/31b61f
so, to my thinking, if last cycle i O'd CD15 & we DTD -3 O, the day of, & +3 O, then i must have concieved the day i O'd. then i lost Molly on CD35. so i was exactly 5w preg, 3w gestational age, right?
so this time, i O'd CD16 & we DTD -3 O & +1 O, then i must have concieved the day after O. so right now i'm 4w1d, 1w6d gestational age. is this right?
& if so i'm only 8 days away from reaching my milestone gestational age? or 6 days away from being "technically" 5w preg? help, i'm confused.
& if i enter LMP as the day i lost Molly into a DD calculator i come up with august 31. & if i use the day we DTD after O as the conception date, i come up with an EDD of september 2.
sorry this is long winded & a bit confusing. just wondering if anyone else wanted to play with my numbers, i've been trying to stay busy & not worry, but then this morning i thought "how far along AM i?!" thanks ladies.
