sounds like they do on this board
hi sarasprings! hope your stay is short and sweet
chiromama - love your songs! i just got a barry white greatest hits today in the mail
and i think some of these are begging to be ttc verses.
I want to thank everyone for there support on the bleeding front.
: i'm doing the 5 day run of the 4/day bc pill. I have very mixed feelings about this. KateSt., your words speak to me. Johanna - bc and ttc don't seem to mix for me either.
I've talked to the mw, my old ob, the new ob my mw works with and they all seem to believe in the pill route. My mw listened to me today. I know she hears my concerns about this and I at this point am willing to try anything. THough she had no herbal remedies to offer, she did support my looking for alternatives and encouraged me to use the tea and vitex (thanks for all the info sweetc), while using the wk of bc pills.
I was so sure I wouldn't fill that script but she made sense in some ways. I don't know. Maybe I've just become so run down. I have been bleeding for the better part of 3 1/2 months now. If I total the days up, I've had maybe 3 wks. off give or take a few days. Maybe there is a day with nothing and I think it has ended only to find spotting and full on bleeding later. I need this physical reminder of my loss to end. I, kicking myself for it now, have not been charting temps through this. I wish I had so I could have an idea if I'm ovulating or not. I have trouble believing I am. I told her I just can't see taking bc if all I want to do is make a baby. But I'm not healthy right now. I'm tired. I keep catching colds or battling ear infections. I'm so tired sometimes it hurts to move. I just watched my mother recovery from severe anemia and it has been months and months to build her iron back up. I'm getting nervous about becoming anemic.
Phew. I think about this stuff so much of the time and don't have really anyone here to talk to about it. I did have a good talk with my dh this afternoon. He supports whatever I choose to do and just wants to see me feel better again. I want that too. So I'll take the pills. Meanwhile I will start temping tomorrow, drinking red raspberry leaf will make the liver detox tea tomorrow and the other recipe recommended. I am considering the Vitex.
Thanks for the support! You ladies are wonderful and reading this thread has become such an uplifting part of my day. You have given me the means to seek out the knowledge to get through this in a way that I feel is not blindly being lead. You have inspired me to chart! THank you!
