Thanks for the help and encouragement! 
 
We've been looking into international adoption.  (Sorry I forgot to mention it.) 
 
Does it happen that you know of an agency name though?

DH and I have always wanted to adopt, though we'd intended to experience birth first.  After trying for 5 years, we've decided to continue TTC, but also go ahead and start the adoption process.  I...

Ya know, when we lost our first, it took 6 weeks before I cried. I couldn't grasp what had happened for that long. But the day I first cried started 2 solid weeks of it.

There's no telling what...

My quick thoughts:

I think I'd go teddy bear over bird, since it seems more baby related. But I'd love to get either one!

The gift basket might be really great as far as parents at any...

What do you do for keepsakes when there are none? We lost all our children so early, there's never been a handprint, picture, etc.

We have certain sympathy cards on the wall. A blanket my mom...

The only info I know to provide is that it can take longer than 3 weeks. I went 5 1/2 from death to birth. I was in labor at only 12 1/2 weeks, but it seems reasonable that it could take just as...

momtoS,
That totally did give me an idea. The card says "We have been blessed" on top. I love the idea of pointing out that we really HAVE been blessed. Might use that. Thanks.

3 months?! Yikes.

I called the nurse before putting up the post. She wasn't worried, but I've learned more from mothering than I have from doctors - truth be told. Thought I better ask.

Sooo,

Is it ok that a pinky-size piece of tissue just came out? Not blood, but pale muscle-y stuff.

I'm 6 days past a 10 week D&C. There's no pain and little bleeding.

Thanks. I'll start temping tomorrow, 6 days after the D&C.

Thanks Girls. Dh's getting the thermometer out of the closet.

Ya know, I kinda hope I do ovulate soon (and can see it). I want to feel like my body's doing something right.

Does anyone know when the earliest is you might ovulate after being pregnant? Do you know if temping would work while there's post-pregnancy hormones still in your body?
