So, we are definitely planning to go unassisted for our next baby. We've been trying since the beginning of the year and I've had 2 m/c. I tend to get pregnant easily, just have a hard time keeping them (5 total losses, all between 4 and 5 weeks). So, hoping the next will be the sticky one.....I *think* I am about 5 dpo now, but this cycle could be off as I just m/c April 27th and my signs have been off. Good luck to you all trying and I look forward to getting to know you!
Of course you can join!
(Not that I'm the boss or something, just the first to respond!)
I'm so sorry to hear about your lost babies. That would be very hard; we've never *tried* yet, so that's one of my concerns.
My DH says that he's not going to get excited right away b/c it's so easy to lose babies when they're so teeny-tiny. But I reminded him that people lose babies at all stages of pregnancy, at birth, of SIDS, and even my grandfather lost his child (my father, a year & 1/2 ago or so) and felt it deeply
. He thought it was a good point, and I'm sure that I won't be able to avoid feeling super happy if we're blessed with a little one and (if it happens) super sad if he dies at any point
before I do!
Anyway, I'm just past O, too... let me check my fertility friend... about 5 days, too. (Long story short, I just started temp-ing again recently, in the middle of this cycle, and this is my best guess.) Wow! That's fun to be on the same schedule as someone. This could come in pretty handy when I'm in the TWW next month!
: If you're not a month ahead of me then! *wink*
Do you have your birth stories posted anywhere? I'd love to read about your experiences...
Well, better get back to my language study. Have a good night!
