I am sorry to thread crash - I wanted to send huge hugs to Chourd. I'm so sorry, mama! Be good to yourself and take time to heal. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Sila, yay for such a lovely little ultrasound pic! I'm thrilled things are going well!!! Double yay for no. more. shots!

 

Shell! So nice to "see" you. I'm happy to hear you are getting rid of the stressful job (you know I can commiserate), and for a stress-free life!  What a great thing!!!

 

Indie, I'm so glad that you aren't having any side effects . . . there's only so much a girl can put up with already!! 

 

SKJ, oh girl, I hear you. Crazy to be talking about L&D and preparing in some many ways. I'm a little freaked out, but also super excited and optimistic. I really like our doula (she's very grandmother-ly, which suits me perfectly). I'm excited for you!

 

Chuord, I'm so sorry for your loss and having to go through this experience. :(


Bebe (36) & Hubby (36) married since 2010 . . . expecting our first June 15th, 2013! It's a GIRL!

Chuord- sending strength your way as you process your loss. Have you read spirit babies? I haven't read it but I know there's parts that talk about a lost babies spirit remaining for the next body. So you could be right, the shell is gone & your little man is still waiting for the next turn.

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

Chuord, thanks so much! It's rather surreal, completely exciting and totally terrifying!

Good evening ladies!

 

Chuord - I'm so sorry about the crummy outcome, but I completely believe what you said about the spirit just waiting. There was some account I read in a great book about midwivery when I was pregnant with DD about that concept - I think it was an account from a child who told his mother after she had a m/c that it was ok because the baby just wanted to spend a little more time dancing with the other baby spirits before coming into this world. Something to that effect. I hope your cycles recover quickly and you get pregnant with a sticky one!

 

Indie, thanks - more about teaching below. I hope you're doing well - close to O?

 

TF YYYAAAYYYY! I don't think I congratulated you yet! I'm so, so happy for you! I have to say, I was NOT believing those negatives!

 

Sila - Love the pic, very, very cool! So excited about the end of PIO for you and hope you're starting to feel good (?).

 

SKJ sounds like you've been challenged by the stress but it hasn't gotten you. I am glad you're still exploring trusting your body - it's so hard after all this!

 

Chrissy - How's it all going? Hang in there, friend - I hope things are improving... hug2.gif

 

Sherry - I'm sorry about the BFN. Love to know how things are going for you now...

 

AFM - I have been so, so, so busy - in all the best ways! Yes, I'm really excited! I know it's a terrible and vulgar colloquialism, but I keep finding myself saying that I feel like a pig in sh*t! I LLLOOOVVVEEE teaching. And I've covered a ton of material and am getting lots of positive feedback (from all three -- yes, three of my students. My co-teacher was away all week - it was all me). I miss DH and DD, but I've only really had a hard time at one point (when DD was crying on the phone). Other than that I know that she's having an absolute blast and most of the time she's too busy to even hang out on the phone with me! It's odd being alone, with nothing but my work and catching up with old friends, but it's not too bad winky.gif I'm really looking forward to them getting here Monday, but then I'll really have to focus on the balance and that will be hard. A big thing for me is getting another job application out this weekend for another dream job (still haven't heard anything from the other one - it'll be a while, so I'm told). So that's the work I need to get back to. Enough procrastination ...

Thanks ladies I really appreciate it... But I just keep feeling its no big deal compared to the journeys on here... I'm just over my hormones cycling through all the emotions lol... And the chaser migraine!
Jpack I love the fact that both you and TF have the same thought re the baby spirits... It's a comforting thought to know you'll get the one that's right for you regardless 😄
So cool that you are loving your job that much - fx on the next application!
Indie - it's so nice to see you on here! Hoping you're having some well earned r&r with dh?
TF - hugs on the trying to stay brave and strong 😀😊😇 and sending those babies love! I hadn't put my beads together yet, must have known I'd need a cheer me up, and just did them... So therapeutic and soothing - like a blanket of good wishes and love! Thanks again for the gorgeous beads 😄😍😄
Sherry - any more testing?

Bebe - So nice to see you!

 

Shell - Yay for no work stress!

 

Chuord - How's it going, dear?

 

Sherry - Uhm. You dropped off the face of the message boards. I'm guessing it's not good news. hugs!

 

indie - HI!

 

Jpack - So happy for you that the job is working out! Your post sounds so happy!!

 

Daurelia - Congrats on the new job!! Taking a break is sometimes a good thing.

 

Everyone else - HI!!!

 

AFM - Had appointment with Doctor about testing for DS. Yes, we're going forward with testing as there are "some concerns". Now to wait again until we get another appointment. Mom found out she'll be staying in the hospital from Friday until Sunday. She's getting cut across the tummy. I said it was almost like getting a c-section. They did tell her that the reason they are doing a full hyst is because if it is cancer it made no sense to take just part then have to go back in for the rest. So it's a safe then sorry thing. I'll be taking her to the docs friday and staying as long as I can. Probably visiting Saturday then bringing her home Sunday. She was told she can walk but that's it. She can't bend, squat, run, jump, clean house, do laundry, etc.


Me - 39
DH - 40
DS - 5 ASD and severe adhd

Hi all.

Bfn all weekend and beyond possible now....still trying to figure out what now.
Dh is afraid that if my tubes are blocked we could be asking for trouble and that perhaps my cp was an ectopic that resolved. He thinks I should get an hsg. That is hard to do being here and trying to get to bk at the right time. Soooo just thinking. I am really just tired of being in this space.

So I dunno....sorry no personals I am exhausted and have an overnight baby that I just got to sleep.

Thinking of you all and reading along.

DDX5 '88 '90 '92 '97 '99. TR 5/2011. HSG 9/2011 R TUBE OPEN. HSG 5/12 both tubes closed. SECOND tubal reversal surgery 7/12 , CP 3/2013 ttc "our" first @40 DH 46.

Chrissy - yay for the progress down the path with ds, if they didn't want to test him would mean they don't think there's any issue - so I'm reading that as all good! Same with mums surgery, one less a aesthetic is a good thing... Fx it's still a bit fat nothing when they get in there though! So everyone else is getting sorted - how are you?

Sherry - I'm just being selfish, I'm hoping you find a way to keep going and stay here with us 😄 will it be easy enough to just do a couple of tests? Maybe all you need is a month or two off to regroup and enjoy being a person again - instead of a baby manufacturing plant.... Lol conversation in my head is 'oi I called for maintenance to repair the problems months ago - where are they and why is production still out' craziness aside - it's most important that you do what's right for you. Big hugs!!!

Afm - interview went well, lovely people, it's for 12 month contract to cover maternity leave lol!

Just wanted to say I'm so sorry for all of the bfn's and to Chuord. Hope and healing all around.

 

Bebe - I've been waiting for you to pop in here and let us know how you are doing since it's getting so close!

 

TF - So did you calculate a date?

 

I spent over 24hrs this weekend helping a momma get her VBAC. I'm exhausted and I'll have to catch up later.
