TTC After a Loss

(BFP warning) My hands are still shaking.

Remember how I was going to wait for my beta?  HA!  As much as I tried to escape it there was still a lot of testing chat this week and I broke down.

I'm 7dp5dt (12dpo) and still in complete disbelief.  They won't run a beta any earlier than Thursday for me (I'm friends with my nurses and already talked to them this morning Big Smile ), so I'm sure I'll be peeing on something every day until we start hearing numbers, much to H's chagrin.

My TTCAL ladies.  I can't begin to tell you all what you've meant to me in my time here.  I'm so grateful to you all for the hugs, laughter, and even the tears when we've needed them.  I'm moving on with caution, but I'll absolutely be checking in on you all here, and I hope that we don't share a board again until you come snuggle in on PGAL.

Love to each and every one of you, and thank you for all that you've done for me.  <3  I'd post a gif, but I just couldn't find one that was good enough for you all today. 


Re: (BFP warning) My hands are still shaking.

  • Congrats car! I, too, hope we don't share a board until we meet again on another board. (all of us!)
    I have short term memory loss. Do not take it personally if I do not remember you right away.

  • I had a feeling I would see this this morning (that testing talk is too tempting!)  

    I am so, so happy for you Car.  Know I'll be keeping you all in my thoughts through this time and hopefully I'll be over there!  Don't you dare lose touch now that we're on different boards - you know where to find me! 

  • I love you guys so much.  Thank you!!!  I'm going to miss being here every day, but I hope that we'll all be together again soon in greener pastures.  <3

    Also, I should note that the IF check-in leader pregnancy streak remains intact, so if someone who's cycling soon (*ahem ball.and.chain*) wants to take it over, let me know! 

  • That is amazing!  Congrats!  FX for a nice sticky baby and fabulous betas!
