oh my dearly loved friends. until now, tears have not been a part of this process, but now my heart is absolutely breaking over here.
Astrid, how can I even express the sorrow I feel, reading your news. Of course you have handled every step of the process perfectly appropriately, including sharing what and when you felt ready to do so. It is hard to ever see the silver lining at a time like this, although you are right that it is a positive thing that you got pregnant, and in your uterus. I hardly want to say that, though, for the very real pain and sadness that you are experieincing.
And Leslie, it's funny, I have been thinking of you for days and this afternoon I was just more intensely wondering what is going on with you. I can so completely relate to everything you said.
I figured you just hadn't seen my post or you were just really in the moment, both of which are ok with me.
Oh, Laura, that sure sucks. I'm so sorry. Progesterone supps suck, AF sucks, and AF on your birthday? Well, that's cause for revolt.
Ladies, to me this really does indicate that we should take ourselves elsewhere. If it's causing pain to our friends to even type "mothering" then let a new home be part of our support we give each other. That doesn't mean we can't still come here for ttc-related stuff, but it sounds like some of us need to be supported elsewhere for now.
I did, in fact, go home. I spoke with my nurse and she advised bedrest until tomorrow morning when i see Dr. Doom for an u/s. The moment of truth is arriving. I'm still spotting/bleeding, still on and off crampy.
Beemama, still thinking of you and your great news!
