Up Late, Can't Sleep... need my MDC fix!
Hi Ladies. Whelp, almost midnight and can't sleep so I figured I would pop on here briefly and type softly so as not to wake up DH! First I want to welcome the newcomers! May your stay be short and sweet and welcome back the new oldcomers Frog and Mischevium. Good to have you back and I again, hope your stay is short and sweet. Mischevium, thank you so much for the thoughtful message and prayers. It really means a lot to get support wherever I can. Being in the grief stage is very hard but still not knowing anything adds all the more to the brain jumble. I actually contacted a counselor yesterday and am going to start seeing him. I think it will help me deal with the loss as well as what is to come.
OH.. I probably forgot to tell you all this in the midst of my crappy holiday. You know how DH had a ticket to surprise his grandpa in Seattle Christmas Eve (he had brain cancer). Well, after we found out about my sister the 20th he decided to stay with me even though I encouraged him to go. He cancelled his ticket and the morning of the 21st when we were in the funeral home discussing my sister's service arrangements he got a call from his mother in Seattle that his grandfather had just passed. He was very bummed he didn't get to see him but I told him how proud he was that he stayed to support me and that they were playing Tripoly in Heaven together! Please say an extra prayer for him too. He has been a trooper and super supportive through this whole thing. I think him losing his first family member, his first grandparent (yep he had all 4 until then) was a little lost in the shadow of my sister.
Rivka, you have been busy. I hope all the testing turns out good for you! Have you ever had an HSG (if you mentioned it previously, please forgive my lax brain)
EarthyMama, ask for "the works"... Prolactin, LH, TSH, Tyroid, Clotting... I can't remember what all mine were but at the end it was the HSG which determined what I am assuming is the problem. GOOD LUCK!
SunnyKat, GOOD LUCK with a triphasic chart! I hope you don't have to wait tooooo long. My + didn't show up until I was about 2-3 weeks late.
Mischevium, DH's Mom's side of the family lives in Seattle. I love it there.. people think I am crazy because of the dreary weather but hey.. that over humidity and heat any day! When will you have a + diagnosis (which I do realize may or may not be what they are testing for). I do hope it is something treatable. Did you ever have an HSG? Am I on an HSG kick? Who knows.. my brain is Fried. I kept thinking today is Tuesday. Good Luck and please keep us posted... positive thoughts for an easy "fix"
Poet, HUGS for the cycling Clomid effects! I think your reaction, Clomid or no Clomid, is what all of us who experience fetility problems feel. People have no right to talk about your personal problems and use it as an excuse to "get on the ball". I think we all love babies... we just don't always love the people who create them (whoops did I say/type that.... YEP I DID!)
Jencat, I have my fingers crossed for you dear! We would be honored to have you as our first Jan. 08 graduate! Keep positive vibes coming your way!
Whelp, still debating about when to do the surgery.... I ended up using almost all my vacation with everything going on and I need to be off a week so who knows. Body still not in any condition to heal or carry..... TMI sorry - 1 solid poo in 17 days (NOT GOOD!) and still not eating well.. 1 small meal (if you can call it that) about every 2 or 3 days and still smoking like a chimney (I am so disappointed in myself... I quit when we first started TTC in April 2006). I WILL quit again! Haven't been to the gym since all this either. With time I keep telling myself. Please keep your prayers coming, they help keep me strong! I am going to lay down and stare at the ceiling now... g'nite!
GOOD LUCK LADIES... I think of you ALL, all the time!!!
