Chrissy, I am so hopeful that you are gonna make over the top and finally O this time. Want me to give you a tiny little push, ever so gently?
Oceanone, I'm so sorry. Thinking of you going through that makes me want to take a cue from the hard-core UC'ers and forgo all future pregnancy tests. I agree with the others that sometimes it just stinks when you know too much information. Well, you know we are all thinking about you and sharing your misery and hoping for a better outcome next time.
Claire. So how many toddlers has your doctor nursed? Um-hmm, okay, none? Right. And what does she care if your precious boy has to stop nursing? Oh, she doesn't care? Sure, okay, got it. Oh, and she had been reading what research? Wait, there really isn't any...Huh. Gee. I don't know, but I think you may be onto something with that idea of seeking another opinion.
Also, I know this isn't what you want to hear, but you WILL get your fertility back. It WILL happen. I never thought it would take me half this long to get mine back. I was ready when ds was 15 mos. (well, really I was ready about 1w pp
). Hopefully it won't be that long for you. But even if it is...well, maybe there is a reason. Everyone gave me lots of encouragement, Enjoy the one you have right now, You could wean and still not get pg, You have plenty of time (Ha! that's easy for them to say! who knows how many more I may want, and I'm already 32!)...none of them made it easier to wait. Heck, here I've had 2 ppaf's and I'm still sooo frustrated some days because they aren't right yet. Plus I'm still not pg! Wait, wasn't I supposed to be encouraging you? Oh yeah. The thing is is that it sucks but we're here feeling you and you will get through the wait. And the up side is that you may end up having a little helper by the time you have the next babe. Even if I got pg today my little fella would be very close to 3 which is practically grown up! Which, now that the bulk of my wait is hopefully behind me, I must say will be a lot easier than if I'd gotten pg at 15 mos. (or 1 week!).
jc_cat, congrats! I'd also like to thank you on behalf of the entire group of nursing mamas ttc for taking our plight to heart and doing your part to give us all some hope to hang onto!
Hope everyone else is doing okay and doing their part to give us reason to celebrate!
