My blood work is Thursday, since I'm already going to be in Akron for one of my FC to have a visit with birth dad. They would have let me come in today, but since it's 35 miles each way to akron, I said let's just do it then. The question is, can I get him dropped off, get to the hospital (only like 5 miles, but all downtown driving), get parked, get in there get my blood drawn, get out, pay my parking ticket and get back to csb in ONE HOUR??? LOL

Just checking in. How's everyone doing??

AFM no AF hasn't found me yet. I'm sure she'll rear her ugly head in a day or two though.

Well, I guess it doesn't matter too much when I O'd as I got a BFP yesterday (SMU with Answer Early Response)! I was pretty shocked -- was definitely not expecting a positive. I'm still going to hang out with the TTCers here and on the TTC after loss forum as I can't jump into a DDC until I know this one is going to stick. Baby dust to everyone!

Porcelina_ I'm so happy for you. I know how happy you must be and pray this lil bean sticks.

 

AFM- FINALLY got AF today. Not really sure if I'll come back for a TWW next month. I guess it's up to hubby. We're just gonna use condoms unless he chooses not to. So yeah... I'll keep you posted! Good luck ladies!

Yay Porcelina!

And I'm sorry, Countrybound... is it bittersweet for you...?

AFM, I kept feeling yucky and really really thirsty the past few days, so I dug my BG meter out last night - 169 FOUR HOURS after dinner, and 109 fasting this morning...ugh...definitely, definitely points to pregnancy (bloodwork less than 2 months ago showed insulin and bloodsugars that couldn't have been more perfect). But GD/borderline GD at 4 weeks...come on!!!

BUT...I did some research after talking to a friend, and realized that this could be why I had lost these last 4 babies! The last time I kept a baby was when I was on metformin (for PCOS, not anything existing diabetes related), and as soon as endocrinologist pulled me off it, I almost lost the twins. Still lost one anyway, but at least I had one!

Planning to TTC NEXT month, but there is a chance I could be pregnant this month. Just waiting and hoping! Not temping or using OPKs, but I did have a dream last night that I was preggo. Won't test until 12/10. Only have one test left and I want to make it count. smile.gif

Bloodwork went well. I didn't have an appt with the dr, so I wasn't expecting to see him at all, but he waited to speak to me until I came out if the bathroom (lol), so I ran all the slood sugar stuff by him. He's taking it very seriously, and would have done a fasting sugar this morning, but I had already eaten. He said he wants 2 fastings within the next week...


So now to live on pins and needles until I get the blood work results...

MamaMash, when will you test again??

Welcome, Serenyd!

Joyfammama- Hope you get some answers! Also no it is not bittersweet for me. I really am ok with not being pregnant this month, actually very relieved. I really don't want to screw up Christmas and my DS 7th Birthday New Years Day. I hate the fact that I have such horrible hyperemesis with every pregnancy (and no, not every pregnancy is different for me. I've been pregnant 5 times and all is the same). I can't think of anything going on towards the last of January (except school) that I have to deal with so we'll see. Another thing is that I didn't want our pregnancy something that was forced onto us. I want both my DH and I to be 100% sure that this is what we both want before doing so as I'd hate for any resentment to be there. We have a wonderful marriage and I'd like to keep it that way lol. Having kiddos is stressful, especially with our lives because we are both very social people and like our freedom. He hunts and fishes and I go to dance clubs with my girlfriends and out to Sunday brunches. So we have to take all of this into consideration before deciding on another baby. I'm also in school to become an RN and when I go back to work it's more $$ for daycare.... but I refuse to have another baby far apart in age, if we're gonna do it, we're gonna do it within the next 4 months, or he's getting snipped. I'm thinking our baby Jagger is the last.

I hope you get some solid answers JoyfamMama and I can't wait to hear what your blood results are!

I totally get where you're coming from countrybound. You have to do what's best for your family!

AFM I won't test again unless I haven't started by Monday. That's a week from the BFN. I keep feeling like I'm going to start. But haven't yet. I've been getting the cramps and aches on and off for a week. But no AF yet. Still trying not to get my hopes up....

well... The nausea and food aversions have kicked in big time today... A good sign. I can't bring myself to move over to the August DDC yet, so I hope you all don't mind me hanging out with you here for now...

Howdy, everybody.  Just catching up on the thread ... today is my DSS' 7th birthday, so it's officially that weird time of year (for 6 weeks) when both the boys are the same age.  We're home to 2 seven year olds!  Hah!  He's the youngest in his class (6 years old and in 2nd grade, WTH lol) while DS is somewhere in the middle ground for age in the same grade.  


Mooooom! to  guitar.gifDS (1/05) and whistling.gifDSS (11/05).  TTC fingersx.gifour "ours" after VR on 10/12.

AF has found me. I knew she was on her way, so I'm not surprised. I'm going to try to chart my cycle consistently this month.

Hi everyone - sorry I have been absent all week.  I got a surprise BFP on Monday morning!!!  Still do not feel pregnant at all, other than being extra tired.  I have had horrible horrible pre-natal depression with number 2 and number 3 and I am just hoping and praying that it does not set in with this one.  And hoping it sticks!! 

Congrats Porcelina!

mamamash- So sorry to hear that AF found you. Better luck this cycle!

 

mirpmama- congrats on your BFP and hope the depression stays away while the baby sticks!!!

 

knittermama- thats so cool that they're in the same grade! How fun, but I'm sure it was tough at the beginning.

 

AFM- I'm lurking around. Still on AF, still haven't decided on how to handle this month lol. I may go ahead and chart anyway, this way I can tell for sure when I'm about to O so we can either avoid or go with it.

 

Surgery for my 7 month old baby Jagger is on Monday, we had preop yesterday and labs drawn. So happy to finally put this behind us. Staying indoors all weekend so he doesn't get sick, plus it's nasty weather so we'll just lay around and be lazy and get some homework done.
