Hello Ladies!!

Here's to an awesome October.

btw - if anyone has any updates on themselves or any of the ladies on our list - please pm me or bold them. That way we can have the most updated list of chart links, bfp's, births, etc.

Well...I guess I'd like to be added to the list again. We lost our little miracles at 12 weeks. While the midwife recommended waiting to allow my body stores to rebuild, there's no way in heck we're going to do anything to prevent. Here's to hoping it takes a lot less time to conceive again.

Julia'sMom - ttc#2 since Jan '07

WeasleyMom - I'm sending you all the sticky vibes I can.

Can I join you?

My DH and I have been TTC #2 since 7/07 - but have not prevented anything for over 2 years. I am now on my first round of Clomid and feeling like I am going to see AF tomorrow

Welcome AprilMom! May your stay here be short and sweet!!

That's amazing about the lady with 6, Tiara! : So sweet. I've always been semi-convinced that I'll have nothing but girls, but in the same dreamstate I realized that if I have a boy, he'll be my heartson, if that makes sense?

Hi ladies! Just wanted to say hello and shower you all with and vibes
post #9 of 159
Its the same old stuff with me - I have been lurking mostly because this is year #5 of TTC, and I'm starting to lose hope. I'm currently using Acupuncture and trying to eat healthy and lose a bit of weight, and beyond that.. I dunno.

- I too hope your stay is short and sweet.

kssinca: Thanks for keeping tabs on us . . . .And spreading that dust.

Kiya: It does make sense.

ItyBity: Each year passing does tend to jolt you into reassessing what you want to do, why, and how. We've chaned our focus so many times. Sometimes I wish it were easier or that I had the answers to share. Thinking of you.

puffnstuff - Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : : :

Julia'sMom - Truly so, so sorry.
post #14 of 159
WELCOME April! May you come and go quite swiftly

ItyBty, I was just thinking of you. Gosh I am so sorry this is beyond rough. I'm : for you and for your happiness.

Kssinca, Nice to hear from you. Thanks for the well wishes which will not go unappreciated.

Puff, Great to see you have a due date!

Weasley, One day at a time, no prayer is quite as sticky as the one for you.

Julia'sMom, I'm SO sorry you are here again. Truly.

Tiara, Thanks for being threadqueen this month.

Kiya, That was a gorgeous dreamdrift you shared at the end of the Sept. thread. Nothing short of what I hope you receive, in time.

I had a funny dream last night myself. I dreamt I POAS and it was positive, but not just any ole positive. Because it was the only pos. I'd seen in 2 yrs, after it turned positive, it started lighting up and little celebration messages popped up in the window until it was one regular party stick of joy. They should make those for gals like us.

Also, I wanted to share a different perspective on something we were discussing at the end of the Sept. thread about the idea that maybe we are going down this road for a certain reason. That is a totally legit way to approach it esp. if it works for you! but I am looking at that a diff. way these days in case this speaks to anyone out there.

For a while, I wondered what greater meaning struggling with fertility had as that was how I looked at most aspects of my life. Why am I going through this? What am I meant to learn? But in the last few months, I have decided there is no deeper meaning...that I am not being singled out to learn anything I am lacking, that I am not any less ready than anyone else out there getting preg. I woke up one day and thought about how my intention is pure, I have lived the healthiest life I know, I have worked out issues with my own mother in tons of therapy, I am fulfilled creatively by being a writer, I feel connected to the earth and at home in my body. That's enough. I am and have done enough. This is something difficult that is happening to me and I will likely learn things from it along the way because I usually choose to try to be conscious of my experiences, but it's not happening for a reason (i kind of actually think this is an overused line that's great when nothing totally awful is happening to you, JMO). This was incredibly freeing to me and helped reignite that spark in faith in myself. I am probably part of a lineage of women for whom childbearing has not come easy and it's a much older issue than me. At the end of the day, all that I can control is being done. I hope that made sense and is possibly helpful...and not meant to knock down the other way of looking at it. Tis just where I'm at.

Hi friends.
I am still here too.
Like everyone who has been ttc for this long, I go through all kinds of ways of coping.
Right now I am in a peaceful state with it.

PoetGirl
I totally hear what you mean about there actually not being a specific reason for this challenge in ttc. I know what you mean in that I am just as ready and worked through issues and healthy as anyone. I am glad you have found that spark of peace and hope.

I think for me right now- I find some peace i nthinking of it simply as my own journey- my own medicine bag. It is not that I am nmore or less anything than anyone else. It is just my life and my experience. I think I am judging it and myself less than I used to and just watching- going, oh, hmmm.

Glad to hear you are in a peaceful place. I like that "oh, hmmm" place too--well said. It's great to observe all this yet stay kind in the judgment arena. Oh the balance.

OMG they should so totally make those for us! And ones for the others, too, who AREN'T TTC and are freaking out... ours could have either, "i'm so sorry" or "try again tomorrow!" versus, "YAYYYY CONGRATULATIONS!", while the other ones could be, "you're safe, false alarm!" versus, "brace yourself, honey!" Personalized POAS sticks... I see a market possibility here...

Hello lovelies

Well, I didnt have much time last time... so I may as well say... I guess we are just gonna stop ttc...

A year after an official diagnosis of pcos... taking met (the best I could.. I wont claim I did it 100% cause I didnt)... and not even a single ovulation to be happy for... I just want to stop...

I dont really feel too terrible... just remorseful... I had a plan to have a baby before ds turned 4... but that has come and gone... and we really wanted our girl... and that probably wont happen...

The best I could possibly do is leave it in Gods hands

so go ahead and take me off the list... I love you ladies... and I will miss you terribly...
