TTC After a Loss

*~*~*Ladies In Waiting*~*~* (BFP warning)

*~*~*Ladies In Waiting*~*~* (BFP warning)

This check-in is for Tuesday, July 9, 2013.

>> Ladies, I will be unavailable to facilitate the LIW check-in on Tuesday, July 16. Please let me know if you are interested in posting the check-in on my behalf. Thank you in advance. **BFP Warning** If you are having a bad day, please skip the last personal message. 

?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?~?

This is a group designed for all the ladies in the various stages of waiting after a loss: waiting to miscarry, waiting for AF to arrive, waiting to TTC again, and waiting for a BFP. Since this process is such a true test in patience, it is nice to have the support and friendship of other women going through similar experiences and emotions.

- Check in every Tuesday and Friday.
- New members: Post an intro and your current TTC status.
- Current members: Post updates, link to your chart, upcoming appts, prayer requests.
- Weekly check-in's will include an inspirational quote or verse and a question of the day (QOTD).

I look forward to getting to know you!

Welcome kountingsheep, soon2bmrsdaniel and Soupy84!  I'm so sorry you have to join us. I hope you find the same love and support we have all found here. If you have any questions, please let me know or PM me!

Soupy84- I am very sorry for your loss. Has AF departed for you?

soon2bmrsdaniel- I am very sorry for your loss of your twins. Have you had your MFM appt this week?

Kountingsheep- I am so very sorry for your loss. I'm glad to hear that your bleeding has stopped. Do you have any follow-up appts with your doctor?

figgs0831- Have you had a progress check on the affects of the injects? How are things looking?

MollySm- How are you doing? Have you been able to confirm O or has AF arrived?? By the way, I've been meaning to let you know that your siggy ticker and pics of your family do not bother me and I do not think you need a sig warning anymore for this check-in.

Ashellypnut- hmmm.... Maybe you did not O after all. But with the +OPK, O should be soon! Looks like you and DH have another chance.

ahenson818- How is Provera going for you? What day are you on? Will it be a 10 day round?

Beth&Derek- I'm so glad you and YH had a lovely week of relaxation and wine. How many boat trips did you take? I noticed you posted a lovely sailing pic in the CB check-in.

princezjk- How was your first day back to work? ((hugs))

Ksyknelvr-  How is your cycle starting out?

Docamy2011- How is the 2ww treating you? Any plans to test or are you waiting it out.

Serenla- You are sporting some sexy CH's my friend! Yay! Any luck getting better sleep last night? Sounds like you accomplished a lot of cleaning this weekend. Bathrooms are no fun to clean.

SandSunBliss-  How do you feel about those dotted CH's?  Maybe a little early for O. How are you doing otherwise?

Scooteriste- Hanging strong in the 2ww! How are you doing?

Shandorfml2- I hope this past weekend was kind to you. ((hugs))

Nyg2042- I see you started up the OPK's. How are you doing?

FeinBride09- How is the 2ww treating you? GL!!

MyFirstRaspberry- Hello Ladies!

KP0908- Congratulations!  H&H 9mos!

To any ladies not listed, be assured you have not been forgotten. I only list ladies who posted in the latest check-in. Feel free to join in!

QTKY/Question of the day:  What is your favorite song right now?

Inspirational Quote/Verse: 

 "Look at the sky: that is for you. Look at each person's face as you pass on the street: those faces are for you. And the street itself, and the ground under the street, and the ball of fire underneath the ground: all these things are for you. They are as much for you as they are for other people. Remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing."
- Miranda July, No One Belongs Here More Than You

  • Hey raspberry, thanks as always for checking in. I can do next week's if I can start the thread Monday night as I am mobile most of the time.

    Serenla You are sporting some sexy CH's my friend! Yay! Any luck getting better sleep last night? Sounds like you accomplished a lot of cleaning this weekend. Bathrooms are no fun to clean.
    You're damn right, look at that sexy set of solids on that one. I did sleep better, thanks for asking. DH sent me to bed after I started to fall asleep in my spaghetti. He cooked AND cleaned last night, good man.
    I did clean a lot. The people who lived in the house before us were disgusting!I can understand not cleaning all of the time, but these people like never ever cleaned. Ew.

  • Hey Ras! Hope you are well sweety!

    Ashellypnut- hmmm.... Maybe you did not O after all. But with the +OPK, O should be soon! Looks like you and DH have another chance.

    I think I'm close to Oing (if I didn't already) but DH couldn't DTD last night or this morning. I really think this cycle is a bust :( I made an appt with a new urologist bc his ED has been interrupting our sex life. I love him and feel bad for him. I've been a hot mess for a few days knowing that we are TTC this cycle and feeling like we've missed our chance.

    I think it's time for a drink!

  • Hi Raspberry!  Thanks for checking in!  The return to work is going alright.  Day 2 is better than yesterday, so I am hoping everyday is better than the last!  Just trying to get back to or figure out a new sense of normalcy.  I keep telling DH I feel like a social leper, as it seems people are avoiding me.  Don't they know tragedy and grief aren't communicable diseases?  

    Hope you are having a good week!

  • ahenson818- How is Provera going for you? What day are you on? Will it be a 10 day round?

     

    Hi Raspberry!!! Thanks for the check-in!! How's everything with you?

    I started the Provera yesterday. I'm taking a 5 day round. I decided today I'm going to start temping & charting once AF arrives. I know my chart may be wonky if my cycle remains so irregular BUT I figure I might as well give it a shot.

    ***shrugs shoulders***

    Also waiting to hear back from the Dr about moving forward with PCOS testing now or waiting a cycle. AND of course still waiting for DH to do the SA.

  • Hello Raspberry, I'm new to the board and would like to join. I did my intro about a 1 week or so and I hope to get a chance to get to know all you ladies. . I've had 2 miscarriages back to back so for right now DH and I just want to wait and maybe start trying again at the end of the year. I just started doing boot camp yesterday to lose some of the weight I gain during my pregnancy.

  • Hi Raz! I wish I could post for you, but I am also out of town then and will be exclusively mobile bumping all next week.

    Ksyknelvr-  How is your cycle starting out? Not the best. I bled for 6 days...that was utterly obnoxious. It was still a pretty heavy AF although not as bad as the last one (thank God). I took a few days off temping during AF but now I'm back at it. We start BDing tomorrow...I'm guessing O day will be late this weekend or possibly even Mon-Tues of next week.

    QTKY/Question of the day:  What is your favorite song right now? I am really into Blurred Lines (Robin Thicke) at the moment, and I have been super jamming to Bob Marley the last couple days in preparation for my beach vacation next week! : )

  • Hi First Raspberry!

    I should be able to post the checkin for you that day if you haven't had a taker on that yet.

    As far as my dotted crosshairs, I am far from convinced!  I am clueless on CM, but it just doesn't match up.  And the high temp was after a restless night.  I think the CHs will shift.  Still BDing!!  haha.

    On a related note, does anyone have a source for lower-cost OPKs? Care to share?  We don't have a lot of extra money, but I do think using them would give me some peace of mind...

     

    QTKY: My favorite song right now is overplayed to death, but it's got to be Luke Bryan, Crash My Party.  Just heats me right up!  haha.

    Have a great day ladies!!

    ETA: just saw Serenla is handling the checkin next week - just let me know if anything changes...

    I am sure another opportunity will come up when I need help with the check-in. Thank you very much for the offer. I will keep you in mind.

    I usually purchase wondfo's from amazon.com. I just checked they have 50 OPKs for $21 or 100 OPKs & 20 HPT for $34.

  • Hi. I introduced myself last night. Currently I'm waiting to miscarry and have to call the doctor to schedule surgery later today.

    Don't really have a favorite song right now because I haven't listened to the radio in forever.

    Hi! I'm so sorry for your loss and what you are going through. We have all been there. Let us know if you have questions.

    Welcome to Ladies In Waiting.

    Hi First Raspberry!

    I should be able to post the checkin for you that day if you haven't had a taker on that yet.

    As far as my dotted crosshairs, I am far from convinced!  I am clueless on CM, but it just doesn't match up.  And the high temp was after a restless night.  I think the CHs will shift.  Still BDing!!  haha.

    On a related note, does anyone have a source for lower-cost OPKs? Care to share?  We don't have a lot of extra money, but I do think using them would give me some peace of mind...

     

    QTKY: My favorite song right now is overplayed to death, but it's got to be Luke Bryan, Crash My Party.  Just heats me right up!  haha.

    Have a great day ladies!!

    ETA: just saw Serenla is handling the checkin next week - just let me know if anything changes...


    I am sure another opportunity will come up when I need help with the check-in. Thank you very much for the offer. I will keep you in mind.

    I usually purchase wondfo's from amazon.com. I just checked they have 50 OPKs for $21 or 100 OPKs & 20 HPT for $34.


    I also use the wondofos, they're cheap and easy to conceal if you need to. Trade off is sometimes they are hard to judge if they are actually positive.

  • Hey Raz (and everyone else!).

    Yep, hanging in there for the tww. Go tomorrow am for progesterone blood work, so results Thursday. As usual, trying not to get to hopeful before I get the numbers. Silly but sorta helps. Been feeling a dull pain/cramping in my ute/right side for the past 2 days or so. Hoping its maybe a positive sign and not a cyst. Stupid PCOS. If it keeps up or gets worse, may ask doc for a u/s to see wth is going on. Everything since we started ttcing again has been centered on my right side it seems, which after 4 months is making me start to wonder. 

    QOTD: Favorite song right now . . . that's a hard one bc I bounce around a lot in terms of genres. But its summer time, and I'm still lovin' Pontoon from Little Big Town

  • Docamy2011- How is the 2ww treating you? Any plans to test or are you waiting it out.

     So far I'm doing pretty good with it, just focusing on work.  If I haven't started AF by this weekend I'll prob test then! I'm not too optimistic this time but to be honest I'm actually ok with that! :D

     QTKY/Question of the day:  What is your favorite song right now?

    I listen to a Christian radio status called K love and I love several songs on there but I don't know the artist name. One of them I think is called Move a Mountain.

  •  Thanks for running the check-in!  Hope all is well with you.

    Nyg2042- I see you started up the OPK's. How are you doing?

    I started the OPKs a bit sooner than expected because I've been having a lot of cramping, my cycles are all over the place, and I love peeing on things.  The lines have been getting darker, and I had a very close to positive this AM with SMU, but then it faded when I did another around 12:30.  I knew it was too good to be true!

    QTKY/Question of the day:  What is your favorite song right now?

    I love "wake me up" by Avicii

  • Thanks for the welcome.

    Kountingsheep I am so very sorry for your loss. I'm glad to hear that your bleeding has stopped. Do you have any followup appts with your doctor?

    I had a follow up appointment with my midwife last Wednesday. They did an u/s just to make sure everything came out on its own, and it did. Also checking to see if there were any issues with my ute and ovaries, and they looked fine, so no issues there. Honestly there is no explanation for why I had a MC and no way to know if it will happen again. I feel relieved and scared at the same time.

    ETA: QOTD, right now I like "Bless The Lord oh My Soul," just the first verse. Been going over and over it in my head a lot lately. Helps me get out of bed in the mornings sometimes.

  • Hello Raz, I hope you're well! Thanks for the check in, my friend!

    Scooteriste- Hanging strong in the 2ww! How are you doing?

    Hanging in there! Hoping for the best. I'm starting to notice the same symptoms every month so that's both grounding and discouraging. At this point I know that the only way to know is a +hpt so I'm just going to wait for 10dpo to start testing. I'm kind of "meh" about this cycle, we had great timing but I have learned not to get my hopes up anymore. :-/

  • Shandorfml2- I hope this past weekend was kind to you. ((hugs))

    It was ok. I had a huge melt down the day before anniversary of BFP but I pulled it together. I'm now just waiting to O. I'm having weird symptoms though, like sore bbs after AF....I had them before AF too but they continue to be sore. Very weird. I feel like a lot of ladies are getting KU on ttcal and the loss board, and it makes me sad. I want to be pregnant too.

    Thank you! I'm still in a bit of shock. I don't think it will all feel real until our first appointment where it all went wrong before. I think we are both just cautiously accepting that it might be reality. 

    Thank you so much for giving me a place to complain and commiserate. You ladies are truly amazing.

  • MollySm- How are you doing? Have you been able to confirm O or has AF arrived?? By the way, I've been meaning to let you know that your siggy ticker and pics of your family do not bother me and I do not think you need a sig warning anymore for this checkin?

     Th

    anks for the sig thing.  I still have not confirmed O.  I had EWCM and strong O pains for 4 days.  But my temps are still staying low.  I am a terrible sleeper (I wake every couple of hours), so I don't know if 

    that is throwing everything off, or if I just haven't O'd but my body was getting ready and then didn't.  It's very frustrating to not know what is going on.  I ordered Wondfo HPTs from Amazon, so when they get here I will take a test and at least find out if my HCG levels are low enough for me to be ovulating.  And then I guess I will just keep waiting and hope that AF decides to show sometim

    e in the next 2 weeks. 

     

     

     ETA  :  I have no idea why I get such bizarre formatting every time I write on my tablet.  I cannot fix it, sorry.

    Hi Raspberry!  Thanks for checking in!  The return to work is going alright.  Day 2 is better than yesterday, so I am hoping everyday is better than the last!  Just trying to get back to or figure out a new sense of normalcy.  I keep telling DH I feel like a social leper, as it seems people are avoiding me.  Don't they know tragedy and grief aren't communicable diseases?  

    Hope you are having a good week! 

    Aww I'm sorry you feel like a social leper. (That term made me giggle though) my guess is that people don't know what to say. I bet none of them have experienced a loss like yours, otherwise they would know to say "sorry for your loss" at a minimum.  I hope you are able to get into a groove again.

    ahenson818- How is Provera going for you? What day are you on? Will it be a 10 day round?

     

    Hi Raspberry!!! Thanks for the check-in!! How's everything with you?

    I started the Provera yesterday. I'm taking a 5 day round. I decided today I'm going to start temping & charting once AF arrives. I know my chart may be wonky if my cycle remains so irregular BUT I figure I might as well give it a shot.

    ***shrugs shoulders***

    Also waiting to hear back from the Dr about moving forward with PCOS testing now or waiting a cycle. AND of course still waiting for DH to do the SA.

     

    QTKY = I'm still loving Miranda Lambert's "Mama's Broken Heart"

    ".......Hide your crazy and start actin' like a lady"   Wink

    I would agree with your choice to temp. Even if your cycle remains wonky, your chart will provide you with evidence of your cycles to your doctor. I have a binder with charts of my AF for about a year and a half. And my Dr used that evidence along with blood work to diagnose me with PCOS.

    Speaking of progesterone blood work post O...

    I had a general appt today with my OB. She did an internal and external exam. She suggested I get a progesterone test post O to check how my body was responding to the clomid. I am glad for that. I am curious how the increased dosage does this cycle. I've had more symptoms this cycle earlier this cycle - night sweats and headaches. 

    I'll definitely want to know what your test results are on Thursday. What is the good range for progesterone? 

    My FX for you!
