Indie, thanks for your comforting words about symptoms coming and going . . . I'm back to no nausea this morning -- wondering if TF might be right, because both mornings I've woken up without nausea were after dinner with protein the night before (we eat vegetarian a lot). So, perhaps the protein at dinner keeps my stomach settled a bit longer. So I was getting all excited about getting a doppler, and then I was reading a chapter in the book last night "Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering" and it had a whole section on why U/S might be bad for babies, particularly dopplers. WHAT?! I am trying to remember that people get tons of U/S all the time, and it's considered one of the safest imaging out there, but still it's now in my head. Thoughts? You crack me up -- I love rituals, too. I'm not specifically religious, but I do believe in God. I love Judaism actually. I had a Jewish boyfriend for a couple years and I would go to Temple with him and loved it. It was probably the most connected to any religious group I've ever been. I just made sense to me somehow. Anyway, enjoy the ceremony - I bet it will be very special. This weekend we are going to a friend's son's 2nd birthday party, and then to a friend's grand opening of a jewelry store.
Greenmum, aww, look at baby!!! That's so amazing. What is your due date?
SKJ, here's to moving forward, friend!! I'm glad it's not too eventful, and like a normal period. I'm hoping for a super-duper burst of post-m/c fertilty for you! I'm squeezing my eyes closed really hard and willing it to happen! :) Thanks for the encouraging words about symptoms, and for just getting "it". I will be so happy to be in the 2nd trimester -- definitely will let me breath a little easier. My next U/S isn't until 11/12, so I'm going to just have to hope, pray and relax in the knowledge that my body will do what it needs to do. I'm sorry that other mom didn't know how to respond in a more humane way - like wow, I'm so sorry! That's all she needed to say. Show some empathy, people! You don't even need to know the struggles of IF just to be kind and empathetic when someone shares bad news. Good for you for just saying it how it is!
TF, I'm goign to try to take your advice and enjoy my 2nd nausea-free day. ;) So what do you think about the doppler issue that I posted in Indie's section? I really think it's probably fine - just curious of your thoughts.
Gtree, hope your power is back soon (like today!!). Miss you!
Sherry, yay for DD!!!
AFM, I'll be 8 weeks tomorrow. Hoping and praying things are moving right along! As I mentioned above, I have an OB appt on 11/12 and will be getting another U/S then . . . the U/S and doppler debate is running through my head. Anyone else hear anything bad about U/S? Anyway . . . nothing else going on - so looking forward to the weekend!!
