As a result I feel a lot of distance between myself and many of the other women in my life. It's such a strange feeling. This cohesive support will be very welcome!
Poet, I'm so sorry that your friends are being insensitive. I'm lucky in the sense that most of my close friends aren't yet TTC, but I have a friend getting married in August (as is my DH's brother) and I worry about how I'll feel if they start TTC and get pregnant right off the bat. Maybe you and I need to meet up at Samovar (have you been there?) and have some tea and talk?

i think a support thread is a great idea, although the daily in's and out's of a 'one thread' are too much for me, time wise and emotionally! but i'll read along! offer any info if i have it...
thanks for starting the thread, mischievium
First, soulshine, I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter and your other baby
Second, we'll see how it goes, but I'm not expecting this thread to move as fast as the regular ONE thread, if only because there will probably be far fewer of us on this thread.
But NO ONE should feel bad about popping in and out as they are able.

I, personally, am working on trying to include more vegetables and whole grains to my diet and to lower sugar. Instead of soda, if I feel the need for something bubbly I drink half juice (like blueberry or cranberry) and Lemon or Lime Perrier (or the generic equivalent). I actually tried this recipe
last night and, even though I had my doubts, it turned out really well-- especially when served with fresh guacamole!

I was thinking, since CBAVD is rare, maybe I would make that word in your synopsis on the first post a link to a site that explains what it is? Do you know of a good website?
