Oh my gosh, Laura and Tara!!!! How awful! I really really really (add in about 50 million more reallys) wish that this hadn't happened to either of you! Life is not fair in the slightest sometimes, and that just plain old sucks!
As long as I've been here (since Oct) there's never been this many m/c in a week... or maybe there were and our ladies just didn't come back immediately to tell us. I don't know. I do know that I am SO relieved and happy to be part of this TTC community where we are supportive no matter what! Through the laughter and the tears...
Can't have one without the other, right? ::sigh:: at least that's what I tell myself.
Adina -- yes, that's what happened when my half-sister's dad sued for custoday when she was 11. The judge asked both them to agree to paternity. I have to say I'm in favor of that particularly complicated legality in some respects, b/c it does sometimes stop a$$holish ex-boyfriends from making spurious (or vengeful) custody claims. (My best friend has been afraid for a long time that her ex or his parents will make such a claim).
I hate to say it, b/c I know people have very strong opinions on it, but this is one reason why it is really in everyone's best interest to get married when they have a child. I know it would be great if our marriage laws (in the US) were more like Canada, and open to everyone, but unfortunately, they are not. Still, there's lot of legal reasons why both parties of a couple are better off married.
Anyway, I also have a yeast infection today (itching!) and am going to try the yogurt suppository trick before I resort to using the OTC Monistat I have. (Bought after I got Af and was on antibiotics, but somehow never got yeasties then...
Other than that, my temps are still up, which could be the lingering bladder infection. I have to say that I'm really not thinking much at all about it right now, b/c I'm so upset about "the miscarriage trend" -- my heart goes out to each of you!
May we all have lots and lots of sticky dust the next time (or this time, as the case may be)!
PS. Denise, yes, I obsesss over wheter my period was really a period, or "implantation spotting." I have to say that the extremely light spotting I had yesterday (3-4 drops of blood, which never made it to my panties, but were only near my cervix) was nothing like anything I've ever experienced, and gave even my dh hope! Though I'm also trying to not get too excited...
