Welcome to the May thread, ladies!!!!

Most of us are former ttc 6+ month ladies. And at this point, many of us are at or past 12 months, many have had losses, many are dealing with various forms of infertility, and some are just in a waiting period until they can ttc again.

the name? well... We tend to be a little bitter sometimes. So read with care . And due to everything, our emotions run a little raw like sushi. Too many cycles of BFN and CD1 sushi + sake to console ourselves. This ttc business is something that seems to "just happen" for so many... But we just can't get "it" right. So this is where we can "be together", share and express anything.


Some of us have gotten a little quieter lately... There is only so much you can post in the "i want to be pg, but i'm not" category. However we are here in spirit and most likely lurking!

Good morning ladies! Thanks for moving me to BFPs!

I got my BFP this weekend, and had a "faint line scare" yesterday but felt better with another round of testing. Clearly the tests need to be put away immediately.

I haven't been around too much, I had my CD3 bloodwork this month as June is my 12 month mark for TTC, and my midwife was very concerned with my stress level, so I vowed to "spazz down" and not spend as much time on the boards....stalking my chart 2935792 times a day, etc etc. Not sure if it was that or the fact I finally caved and bought myself a new size 10 summer wardrobe (which I'm afraid to return but will only fit for about 4 more hours probably)....

Thanks for your support, and to you!

Michelle, Mama to ~ F (10/06) ~ S (7/08) ~ H (2/11) ~ B (11/12)
Expecting a surprise (5/15)

Congrats Finnegan's Mom!! I'm so happy for you

AFM- Bring on CD1. I'm ready to move on. I'm super bummed, but I gotta pull myself together and get ready for next month. I'm going to talk to the doc about moving on to IVF. I don't know if I have to wait a cycle or not, but I guess I'll know more this week.

On another, happier note, this is how I sent my son to school this morning:

Have a great week ladies! And thanks for the new thread JENGER!

Finnegan'sMom - Congratulations! Wishing you a very blessed 9 months

Nanette - I *love* your son's hair. Super, super awesome.

TY for the new thread jenger - a little threadmistress's luck is in order!

AFM - just chillin' at the end of AF & recovering from the stomach bug. That was a nasty little thing. Praying DS & DH don't get it, but it takes a few days to marinate before rearing its ugly head. :Puke (sorry about the smiley, it's just *so* fitting)

Mama to DS (12/11/07) and partner to DH (08/08). Expecting #2 late November 2011!

I am glad you're feeling better!

Millefleur I corrected your age. Did we miss your birthday. (Ahem, did I miss your birthday!?! I must owe you a happy birthday!

AFM- 2dpo Not feeling especially hopeful... We had lots of well timed bd, but why would it happen this time, an not the other 10 times?

Also, the RAIN WON'T stop in the Pacific Northwest!!! If it's not rainy, it's been cool and cloudy. (For the record, despite our reputation for always being rainy, it's not usually THIS GLOOMY!) AHHH!

I think that's a great summer plan, lapis! and

Nanette
: I'm shocked. Seriously. I was convinced. So sorry mama. I like your attitude though, "pull myself together and get ready for next month." That's what has to be done and that's what will get you where you want to be.

Because ONE of these times has to be THE time - for all of us!

AFM: CD5, AF is on her way out. Looking forward to my midwife appt next week. Hopefully they can give me some clues as to why TTC is taking so long.

to everyone!

Hi Everyone, Can you please add me? I'm 38 (turning 39 in July) We have been TTC # 3 for almost a year now (if I'm not PG this cycle, it will be a full year of trying). I have had 14 ttc cycles already, and I'm starting to lose hope. I sure you all know how I feel!

A little about my situation: DH had a Vasectomy Reversal in May of 2009, just had a 3rd post op SA in April and everything looks great in that department. I had been dealing with short LP and LP spotting, but I finally have that under control (taking 400mg prometrium vaginally after O). I still need to get an HSG just to make sure my tubes are open (I've been putting that off). Beyond that I'm not going to pursue any further treatments (I've done clomid, actually on a clomid cycle now, but that is about as far as I'm willing to go)

My first two were conceived very easily, so there is a part of me that feels like this is not meant to be... feeling pretty dejected lately!

Me (42) DH (43), Catholic Mom to DD (11), DS (6), DS (1)

Expecting #4 in May 2014

welcome girlie! Hope your stay is very short!

Ladies I'm so PISSED! Called the RE to see what I have to do for this cycle, whether I can jump right into IVF or what, and the nurse tells me I have to come in for a freakin' beta. WTF? I've never had to go in for a beta without a pos pregnancy test before! I told her I'd be CD 1 tomorrow at the latest Then she says well you're 14 dpo, and we have to see if the numbers go up or if they go down. I think I got the stupid nurse, or she's new. I said "BUT I'M NOT PREGNANT!!" she's like "oh, you'd be surprised at the crazy stuff that happens." WTH? Seriously? I'm so pissed I have to go all the way down there for this nonsense! And then on top of everything get a call at the end of the day with, you're not pregnant, sorry. UGHHHHHHH!!!! Rant over. Thanks for listening

Sweetest, you are added! Welcome, we're sorry to meet you here!

ALERT! ALERT! (Especially for lurkers!)
I tried to clean up the first post... I found recent posts and logins of those on our list. I moved those who were posting in the DDC's (there were quite a few, happily!) and those who haven't logged on, much less posted, in over 6 months. That said, you don't need to log on to lurk... maybe you are still lurking, and want to be on the list. Well, please PM me or post, and I can add you back! Let's hope everyone I removed is too busy being knocked up...

I will try and keep cleaning up the first post... Any suggestions?

Gahh! Well I just got my blood test results back. Nothing...
There are slightly elevated anticardiolipins (14, they like to see 10), but she said they shouldn't be too big a deal and that the doctor would probably just recommend baby aspirin and not heparin. (Good freakin' thing, because I wasn't going there.) Baby aspirin? really? that's all it is? Joke's on them, I alrready started taking it this cycle.

I was also still testing preg when they did the test so they were probably elevated because of that.

Anyhoo, no answers and now my insurance is expired. Do I just keep trying until my heart gives out?


ETA:
Get this %$! SO I had asked her to fax me the test results. She told me they didn't find anything and that everything was negative. Now...on the paper it says I have two copies of MTHFR C677T (great abbreviation btw)
and after reading up on it I am kind of concerned. Does anyone have any info on it that I want to hear

OK so please excuse my rant from the earlier post This whole mess is just so frustrating. Turns out that I thought there was only one page of results from the lab, but my fax was out of paper. Turns out there were 8 pages. Anyway since there are normal homocysteine levels it means everything is fine with the MTHFR thing, jeeze...and I thought straight up TTC was stressful!

MoTHerF****R is a clotting related thingie - you can be homozygous, heterozygous, or negative. Just having TWO copies doesn't tell me anything. That either means you're totally fine or screwed. Lemme look up what one c677t is.

It is the mild mutation - you're homozygous for it, if I read it right.
It's not the "bad" one, and you share this condition with about 1 in 10 women. Baby aspirin is good. Also, LOTS more folate than usually recommended. Instead of 400 mcg, I'm usually seeing 2000 a day recommends from the perinatologists. It would be unusual for that to be the cause of miscarriages, but I've certainly seen people who carry well after the addition of heparin/ASA. Also links to pre-e - did you have that with your son?
I am glad your homocysteine levels are good. Your risk of heart attack is nice and low, then.

I had nothing with my son except an easy 1st try conception, no worries, and an easy healthy, uneventful pregnancy and natural birth of a gigantic super heathy son. It's been all downhill from there. I thought that's how it was supposed to be.
Yep homozygous.
I looked it up and was in a bit of a panic until I found page 7 where it said homocysteine as well as everything else was normal. I found a liquid folate online and ordered it in a frenzy. However, I may not need it since homocysteine is normal and it shouldn't a problem.
See it just goes to show you once they start looking too hard, who knows what crazy stuff will come up. I suppose that's why they said nothing came up with the testing. It wouldn't have caused the mc. (But what effing did!!?!?) They didn't figure I would do the research and panic myself. I will not do heparin.

Anyway, back to square one with 3 dead babies for "no reason".

I swear I know in my heart that it has something to do with the erratic cyles after the first mc (Which may well have been a chromosomal thing)

This is how I think it went down...mc#1 random chromosomal thing. Cycles didn't get a chance to regulate and hormones were still off somehow, but I got pregnant... and mc again. Then cycles really went mad, but I repeated the cycle. I'm hoping I'm right, and that the acupunture helped me. We'll see.
As much as I want t be pregnant. I would also like to see how AF goes this cycle, to see if it's normal and to see if my next cycle is normal.

Bitter moment here - I wish I could try to get pregnant and be successful first try both times. That thread makes me sad and supremely jealous.

Enigo - I really hope the acupuncture helps to fix things - it sounds like you have a good start!

Girl, now I looked! Arg! Yep, made me bitter too. And I should of gone to bed and hour ago...

(Don't look ladies - a gal posted a thread, the lucky lady got pregnant with #2 the second time she and her husband actually tried)

Even the BSL graduate thread (which I stalked to get updates for our first post ) got me a little sad, even though it SHOULD make me hopeful...

Thanks offering us your expertise with such generosity. It is so appreciated.

I'm sorry. When I had my nightmare the other night, DH kept telling me "it is JUST a dream" it felt like it minimized the feelings. Feelings that come up are real. I wish I could give you a real hug

Beloved It does, doesn't it? I've learned not to bother talking about it with DH. I mean he's supportive I guess, but I don't want to run him off from wanting to try again either. He has no idea hat I spend 99% of my time thinking about this.
Sometimes I don't even know why I want to keep trying. I mean I do want another child, but sometimes I feel like it's more that I can't go out like this. It's a shame I can't channel this ridiculous energy for TTC into something more productive like finding a cure for cancer.

I know later on in life when it is definitely too late to have another when people ask me why DS is an only child it will still hurt down to my core.

DS has a bunk bed and the little neighbor girls ask me EVERY TIME they come over why.
When I bought it, I was pregnant with mc #1 and figured, heck I'm buying a bed anyway...sigh

The doc that ordered the bloodwork said there was no reason according to the results that I should have had 3 mc other than bad luck (sorry, don't believe it) and that I should keep trying. Oh and also get some genetic testing done on myself. Why? You can't change genetics either way.

Sorry, I always mean to do personals. I swear I will when I get back.

I read the thread too...ugh! My first two were conceived very easily and I don't ever remember feeling any kind of angst over a pregnancy test that early on (like I do now after 14 friggin' cycles, and even then I feel guilty about how anxious I get considering I already have two children). Part of why I came over to BSL is because it is so frustrating to hear people agonize over possible BFNs after only 2 or 3 cycles, yep I'm definitely getting bitter!

Jenger my info is incorrect in the first post... I've been ttc since May '09 - not May '10 (I wish!) Thanks!

You know it! It's actually KIND OF clear-ish today, in my rain-shadow town... At least I saw some blue...

Corrected! Thanks for pointing it out!

ME 3 dpo, have 1st RE appointment Friday, am beginning to doubt my decision to make it... I mean, what if it is just 'bad luck'? (Could 10 well-timed cycles without a bfp even be bad luck? I really don't know! I just turned 35 in March...)
Also, I feel liberated that I took my name off the ONE list... I still lurk a bit, but I like not having to ask for my name to be put back and forth and back and forth on the lists...

Okie doke...well I got a "BFP" yesterday morning only to find out that it had to have been a bad test...bc every test that I take afterwards is WHITE. And this morning I wiped and there was light pink blood. So...June makes 7 months. Wow...I never thought I'd be saying that. So today...and rightly so...I'm bitter. I am 13DPO. Nice.
