Bitter Sushi Ladies, May 2011 - Page 4

post #61 of 258

Milkshake- "Having said that, I am absolutely sh*t scared of being pregnant again.  I honestly am.  I know that I want a baby, which is how I have convinced myself to be TTC, but...

I don't actually feel like I will ever have a successful pregnancy.  I just have this feeling in the pit of my stomach that another pregnancy will end up with another loss."

I feel the same.... I'm know that feeling.... all too well but we have to believe that it will continue, I just cannot wait for the Dr to say that I'm in the home stretch..... Someday it will be us. And I hope that you timed things right, you will be a great mum and it will happen...

 

We all just got to be strong a carry on.... and you know I believe that everything happens for a reason and for some reason only some of us in the world have to deal with this loss and trial... I am reminded that I can handle it and I will be a support for other and be strong. Just yesterday I got a call from my best friend who had an IUD checked out after it was inserted, they check via sonogram... She called to tell me that they would have to remove it because they discovered a Septum, and a Bicornuate Uterus, which I was looking for with my Dr just last month, he did not find the septum on me but we discovered the Bicornuate Uterus. I was able to answer all the questions she had not thought of when her Dr told her the news, she was able to go back to her Dr, informed and knew what to ask and what to do, she's going to have the septum removed and fixed now rather then wait until later in life to find out that she's having trouble... A septum as no blood flow and often is the place that a egg will and can attach and thus creating a misscarrage. I'm so glad I was able to be there for her and all of you.... There is purpose to our Journeys, just know that.

 

Em!! So glad you are doing well and the House sounds wonderful!! And I hope that this planning for results in some unsuspecting news too.....

 

Obet- How are you today?

 

Sweet.bee - ????

 

Me: AF came today.... horrible cramps.... Brought the heating pad to work... I've actually decided to stop charting, and to just keep an eye on CM it worked for the last few pregnancy's (that failed but at least happened) We are still going camping and I should be ovulating that weekend... so if the tent is a rocking don't come a'knocking!

 

XoXo All

Thanks. smile.gif Our son was a squirmer in my uterus (kicked us whenever we put a hand on my belly), as a baby (kicked off his blanket), and continues to be as a toddler (recently, climbed to the top of a 4 meter playground structure).

 

Milk8shake, I just wanted to give you a hug.gif. I can't imagine how difficult it has been for you, and I really hope you get a baby that sticks.

 

lilmom, I don't know if it was what made me O on CD16, but maybe try pilates? I have the mat workout from gaim. It's about half an hour long. It kicked my butt.

 

monkeyfingersx.gif And were you the one talking about vitamins? I was thinking of trying chewables when I get pregnant b/c I couldn't take them for months last time due to the gag issue. Maybe those would be good for you?

 

 

So, ok, today's test (11dpo) was still really light, but I think darker than yesterday's. I've only ever had completely negative tests or the clearly positive one last time (test after my period was due), so I'm really clueless here. I tried tweaking them. Here are the unmodified and modified versions. Are they positive? (I positioned the ":" symbol under where I think the line is in each.)

No, no, no. Your chart was looking so good. hug.gif

 

Sorry,your comment about the tent made me laugh. My son has a play tent that he's thrashing around in as I type. He also likes to throw enormous stuffed animals into it.

Greenmum: I'm sorry about the cramps and AF and all greensad.gif I wish you luck on this new cycle! Camping sounds like a fun way to spend O...I've actually been thinking about going camping at the top of the mountain for ours. Perhaps being around a purer form of nature will inspire us and help us relax. smile.gif

AFM... So on top of my weird charting stuff, I've been having ridiculous cramps for a few days now, and painful/uncomfortable sex, and it all got worse today. I thought it meant AF was coming, but it's taking so long. It got better yesterday morning, only to be so much worse today. I hope AF comes so I can move on and quit obsessing about why AF is taking so long and is there something wrong with me that I didn't already know about. I don't know if we can afford it right now (washing machine just broke, emergency veterinarian bill, DH still having some employment difficulty, among other things), but I'm really thinking about trying to talk to an herbalist to see if they have any recommendations for what to do with all my herbs, vitamins, and their dosages. Maybe something I'm taking is messing with me.

Whooa, did I miss something? I barely ever read every post here anymore, but I do still try to keep up with the big news. SweetBee - is that a BFP! OK, I am going to have to read back a little, I hope you are not just showing pics of an OPK.

 

ETA - ok, I read back where you said you saw a faint line on a pregnancy test, so I guess it isn't an opk. Looks like a big bright line to me. Can I post a bunch of dancing veggies yet, or should I wait?

Sweet.Bee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's totally positive, girl! Goodness gracious, you must be over the moon (or feeling like you're in outer space emotionally, anyway)! I'm so happy to see some good news here today!!!!!!! 

 

Greenmum, I'm sorry that we didn't get to celebrate you too this month. You sound like you're handling it well. We Bitter Sushis will definitly not come a' knockin' during your camping trip. No need for sushi while camping. Dried venison or something is more appropriate. I hope you have warm spring weather over there for your veggie garden. Over here, it turned back into winter on Tuesday -- snow and all (though it melted right away). Asparagus should be up soon -- like fields of it -- so then I'll survive, AF or no, by gorging myself on asparagus with browned butter vinagrette.

sweet.bee!  girrrrl! that looks just like my 10dpo + test last time!!!!!   yeah!!!!

post #69 of 258
Sweet Bee, that is a positive if I've ever seen one joy.gif Congrats!!!!!!

btw, enigo, and rcr. I am still around too redface.gif But all 3 of my stepkids are having their second and I can't tell DH why it bothers me greensad.gif Speaking of DH, I am thinking he may not be in love with me anymore anyway. I don't really want to talk about it, but suffice it to say that it is good we m/c greensad.gif

SWEET BEE!!! That is for sure a BFP!!!! Soooooo exciting! Give me the go ahead and I'm gonna post those dancin' veggies too! You give me hope, my late ovulator friend. Maybe I can do it too.

 

GreenMum- so sorry. I thought this was going to be your time too. greensad.gif

 

Beloved- I really hope that is not true, and that he still loves you, and this is just a rough patch. I agree with those who said I hope you have someone you can talk to. In any case, BSLs still love you. hug2.gif

post #75 of 258

rcr, miriam, yeah, OPKs would have been more typical of me, considering how long I usually take to ovulate. I about fell over when I got a + OPK on CD14 this cycle. More shocking still was the line on the HPT at 10dpo, though I'm still really anxious since the line is still so light.

 

belovedhug.gif I hope that's not the case.

 

Emaya, hope it warms up for you soon. We had a few cold days with rain, but now it's sunny and about 24 C. The pollen has been crazing this year, though. It's coated over everything!

 

lilmom, any signs of O yet? fingersx.gif for you!

 

vivica! I haven't seen you around in ages. Where have you been hanging out?

 

BTW, what is the meaning of "dancing veggies"?

 

So, my latest update is not much of an update, I'm afraid. This morning's test (12dpo) was still really faint. I think it's darker than yesterday's, but not really noticeably so. I'm getting a bit worried. These HPTs are really sensitive (10 miu), and I got my first line 2 days ago, so shouldn't they be more than faint lines already? Holding my breath waiting for tomorrow. I think I'm going to go crazy.

Oh, and milk8shake - I have been DDC stalking, too... redface.gif

Yay for valid obsession, and good to know that I have stalking company.  Here's hoping that we both have a reason to come out of hiding soon lol.gif

Sorry about AF - and I hope you get some camping action... Sounds like fun!

 

Re: you and your friend's diagnoses.  Just want to encourage you both to make sure that you are being handled by doctors who know their sh*t?  I can't remember if you mentioned how you were diagnosed?  This is my little pet subject, and as someone who has been on the receiving end of multiple misdiagnoses regarding my anomaly, I just can't sit by and say nothing. 

Unfortunately, most doctors are not sufficiently trained to make such a diagnosis, and I know for sure, that an ultrasound is NOT an appropriate medium to determine a uterine anomaly.

Specifically your friend's details are raising red flags...

I certainly don't mean to be bossy about it though.  If you want any further info, just let me know and I'll help however I can. 
 

Oh that's a line my dear! Congrats!

*drool*  I looooove asparagus

 

AFM: 6DPO - I have had a couple of "symptoms" but of course, at 6DPO - there's a good chance implantation has only just happened! Therefore, the symptoms are in my head!

Sweet.Bee - It looks like it is getting darker to me!! I'm going to remain optimistic. :D Oh, and I think dancing veggies are the official celebratory icon of pregnancy achievement around here.

 

Milk8Shake - I hope we can have a nice little group of BSLs in the January DDC. :D

 

AFM, temp was still up a bit this morning, but I did wake up a while before I took it. So we'll see. Last night, my right breast was having these random pains the were triggered by anything and nothing. If this is what you ladies mean by sore boobs, I'm so glad I don't normally have them! It was driving me nuts. Seems better so far this morning.

"Re: you and your friend's diagnoses.  Just want to encourage you both to make sure that you are being handled by doctors who know their sh*t? " -Milkshake

Your protective nature is greatly appreciated, I had a Hysterosalpingography Exam, HSG. It showed that my uterus looked like a bunny rabbit, and My best friend and Cousin is having the same test to see if a Septum is present. But she only wants to prevent pregnancy (for now!)... I know! Why would she want to do that.... Milkshake, if we were having coffee/tea and chatting about this subject face to face I bet we would both have some "fun" notes to compare, sounds like you have been though alot, man o man, I have been through alot too and I am just as protective of getting the right information and diagnostics. I started seeing a new Dr because of all the this stuff, he came highly recommended to me.  Thank you for your concern, she is going to be good now that they have an idea why her - as she puts it - Lady Gadget - Was falling down, her septum was visible on the sonogram... it was pushing the "lady Gadget" down into her cervix... So they need to preform the HSG test to make sure it's actually a septum and to check the shape of her uterus but they will be removing the septum so that they can re-insert her "Lady Gadget" - she's an engineer, she likes gadgets... Thank you again.

Hope that you get a BPF in 4 days!!! xoxox

 

Off to shoot a wedding tonight... I'm a photographer and have the best jobs taking photos of people on their happiest day!! Hopefully it will cheer me up, feeling gloomy, DH got the flu too he was home sick yesterday and my house is a smelling sickness wreck.... Tomorrow windows are going to be opened and the house is getting wiped clean from top to bottom.... I feel Spring cleaning is mild compared to what I am going to it tomorrow.... Watch out! I think I'll even go for a run too.... Get myself back on track... ME TIME!!

 

Happy Mum's day to all you ladies, xoxoxox you all deserve the title.....

  • miriam_bat_avraham - I have a little suggestion, food... I had some very loved Great Grandparents and they loved when we brought in home cooked meals and treats like cookies and cakes, things that a nursing care home don't always get as often, and flowers, just something to brighten there day... At least I think they liked it, especailly something you made for her...
