That said, I really pray that your DH finds his path to peace with another pregnancy and birth very soon, and for patience for you in the meantime as you wait for him to be ready
Thank you. I hope I can be patient with him too.

The OB wanted to do a section on the 24 hour mark almost to the minute and I refused. I actually asked my midwives not to let him back in the room because he and I had words over it. They did the rest of the OB consults in the hall until the very end when the OB who did my surgery came to talk to us about all the things that were going wrong with both of us. I know my son is ok now and no one could have known then that I would have CPD, but I still beat myself up over the decisions I made. I guess the guilt is normal when things don't go well. I sometimes wonder if my guilt would be more or less if I had just agreed to that "failure to progress" section at 24 hours. We would not have had the complications we ended up with. But had my pelvis expanded I would have given birth vaginally and we might not have had the complications either.

Oh well. Woulda shoula coulda. I could do that all day.

I posted to this thread earlier this month I think. I was having a cycle that wasn't going anywhere-no O or AF in site and lots of spotting. I got frustrated and quit temping because my temps were all over the place. I thought it was because of cosleeping and nursing, but now I think I just wasn't going to O that cycle. I had to end the cycle with hormone pills and then starting using OPK for the new cycle. When I was ttc dd I had a anovulatory cycle and then a cycle where I o'd super early (for me, I usually O late). So this time I thought I would catch it by using OPK early. I had been using them for 3 weeks straight with no positive. But then yesterday I started spotting. I first thought it was more crazy mid cycle spotting and I was going to have to go to the dr, but now I think it is AF and I o'd even before I started the OPK. The math works out perfectly that way. I'm happy about that because now I'll start temping again and maybe this cycle won't be so crazy.

I haven't been posting, but I have been reading everyone else's posts. I really find it inspiring and supportive that everyone is having similar issues. My irl friends aren't nursing anymore and it seems like people are starting to get pregnant again. I love reading that other people have trouble temping and cosleeping (not that I want everyone to have trouble, but it makes me feel less crazy!) I love hearing about BFPS too!
