Hello Mamas! Thanks for all the well wishes, we are back from our trip which was mostly lovely although my hopes of a lot more BDing were quickly dashed since DS slept as we travelled and then outlasted us every evening but one. That may have been the day of O, it may have been the day after.
I didn't bring my thermometer so I can't be sure which day it was, but my temps are up since returning home so at least I am assured that it happened sometime last week. Anyway, it's with little hope for this time around but I can be moved to Waiting to Know
. I did get in 3 great runs, even 50 minutes on Thursday on some really fun trails. I am really glad I agreed to do this race Labor Day weekend because otherwise there is no way I would've gotten out there even once. I rarely feel like
going for a run, and the first half mile always sucks, but after a couple of miles my mood is lifted and I feel so good. Thanks for all the encouragement ladies!
Sorry to hear you are feeling so down. I can totally see why you are so anxious about your DD, I hope you get some relief soon. My sister's daughter is a picky eater and also super tiny (also a 3-5 %er), it's good to remind yourself that all traits exist on a spectrum, some people naturally fall to one end on some things. I know it's gotta be really hard but try not to get too stressed about it. Either some answers will come from your visit with the nutritionist, or it will all work itself out in time. Yeah, co-sleeping definitely puts the damper on the DTD fire.
Since I started doing acupuncture my CM has increased dramatically, with EW sometimes showing up as early as CD9 or 10 even though my O day has remained steady at CD 14-16. Thanks again for keeping up with the June thread, you've been great.
@rosie2727 I'm sorry you've been feeling down and out, from what I read it looks like you got good coverage this month. I, too, mourn the years when I was having sex 10x week. But at least I have the memories.
I don't have any experience with the fertility monitor but I would trust your body's signals- the EWCM & temps- over anything the monitor says. Fx you get your BFP and your HB this cycle!
Lots of hugs Mama on your loss and D&C. Bummer about the classes, but it sounds like it might be a real blessing to have this time with your kids. I know the anxiety over age (all too well, I was ready a good five years before DH and didn't have my first until just before I turned 33) but I now believe 34 is still prime baby making time, definitely not too old
. Your experience in the dress shop sounds really hard but opening up about your loss (when you are ready) can be really eye-opening and healing. I had no idea that I actually knew more women- many, many more women- that had had a m/c than had not. There was so much more sympathy and support and happy stories of rainbow babies than I could have begun to imagine before my loss. I opened up about my loss in my Friends' Meeting and of the six 50-70 yr old women there, five had had losses, and all five had gone on to have another child. It was very encouraging.
@Anna1979 So good to hear from you again! How exciting about all your tests. But wow, what a dick that MD was! Anthony,
I mean, really.
roll I hope everything comes back looking good.
@t2009 Sounds like AF to me too. That's good news right? Sorry to hear you've been down too.
It seems to be going around this month.
I'm glad your talk went well, sounds like you were needing that much deserved ego boost. This is the link to the juice cleanse I did http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/joe-c...-juice-cleanse
@ememers Hope you got the coverage you wanted. I also hate having folks in the house when we are DTD. It's bad enough that my mom lives next door, but this past winter my dad stayed with us for 3 & 1/2 months, from January to April, in the guest room, right across the hall. To top it off he would ask me about once a week how the baby-making was going.
@liladancing We always love to hear from you! It lifts my spirits to see you still growing that rainbow.
As far as other threads, have you checked out the Pregnancy After Loss forum? The book I suggested before is a comic memoir, I think it might be more appropriate for bitter laughs while grieving than for happy pregnancy bliss but here's a link if you want to check it out
For happy pregnancy bliss I like this one
Sending you lots of peaceful pregnancy vibes
Wow, looks like we have a lot of people in the 2WW! Bring on the summer BFPs!
