Welcome to TTCAL CheckIn!

I hope I can find you all well and positive this week! Please don't be shy in asking the PGAL/PAL ladies questions if you have them. Lots of baby dust on all of you!

Where are you in your TTCAL journey?

Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming?

QOTW: Do you feel that TTC has helped you to have something to focus on and look forward to after your loss or are you just frustrated to be back at the beginning again?

Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?

    **All AL Welcome**

  • Good morning!  It feels good to be actively TTC again after being benched for the past five months.

    Where are you in your TTCAL journey?  I'm on CD4 of my second cycle.  Last month I think I got the "all clear" too late and we missed my FW. 

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming?

    I'm currently taking antibiotics because I have Urinary Group B Strep.  This was something that my doc decided NOT to treat during my pregnancy with Ava but the MFM doc decided to treat now since we are actively trying.  Both docs do not think the GBS had anything to do with the loss of Ava but still something doesn't sit right with me since we didn't treat it early on in that pregnancy.  SO, my next appointment is a follow-up to see if my urine is all clear.

    QOTW: Do you feel that TTC has helped you to have something to focus on and look forward to after your loss or are you just frustrated to be back at the beginning again?

    Great question.  I felt frustrated my first round of TTCAL, which ended in another loss.  This time, I'm feeling more hopeful and I do feel like I have something to look forward to and focus on.  I'm feeling really positive about things and I hope I can stay that way.

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week? 

    AF is killing me this week and DH has been away on business.  I'm just looking forward to next week when I'll be in my FW and DH is back and we can get working on the fun part. 

    Shandorfml2 - I'm still here!  I just haven't been posting much while TTA but I'm back at it now.  Many ((hugs)) to you.

    Where are you in your TTCAL journey?

    Cycle 8 (since latest loss), CD 5

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming?

    No, we had a meeting with RE last month. He suggested doing a few medicated cycles, but DH and I have scheduled a family vacation in mid September, so we have decided to wait until October to start those. Hopefully we won't have to.

    QOTW: Do you feel that TTC has helped you to have something to focus on and look forward to after your loss or are you just frustrated to be back at the beginning again?

    Very frustrated. Annabelle was to be our last baby, and now we are over a year of trying with a subsequent, albeit early, loss in between. I never thought we would be here.

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?

    Just wondering if we are ever going to get our rainbow baby.

    CD 21, Third cycle since loss

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming?

    Nope... unless I get that BFP!

    QOTW: Do you feel that TTC has helped you to have something to focus on and look forward to after your loss or are you just frustrated to be back at the beginning again?


    Yes and no... it has also given me something to stress over. I am now trying to just relax and not stress about it. I want to make sure to enjoy the process and not make it so robotic Stick out tongue This is really our first cycle trying. My last cycle was kind of wacky so I am hoping that this one is straightening out now. And yes I am very frustrated to be back at the beginning all over again. I loved being pregnant and I pray that I get to experience it over and over again with successful outcomes but I am frustrated.


    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?

    We are finally beginning the house hunting process and we have a meeting with our real estate agent today and I am very excited!

  • Where are you in your TTCAL journey? CD 25, Cycle 2 since loss

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming? No

    QOTW: Do you feel that TTC has helped you to have something to focus on and look forward to after your loss or are you just frustrated to be back at the beginning again?  Yes I like focusing on something positive and I really look forward to being pregnant again.  I know this time around I am going to try and relish in every minute of pregnancy and enjoy the time that God gives me with the next child, however long that may be.

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?  I am feeling really anxious about the upcoming autopsy report on July 26.  Just don't know how I am going to react to their findings.  Also nervous about how long will it be until we get pregnant again, it took about 3 months last time.  This time I feel a lot more eager to be pregnant and am really hoping to get pregnant on our first try this next cycle.  I even bought an OPK to help us get a more accurate date of ovulation.

  • Where are you in your TTCAL journey?

    I am still here too! We are technically still waiting another cycle before trying for our fifth so depressing time. We have been getting lots of additional testing done such as karotyping, more blood tests on me and more tests for my husband. So far everything is normal so assuming that the rest of the tests come back normal we will try naturally again. Our RE gave us an option of IVF with PGD so if we have a fifth loss that might be something that we will look into further. However, for now we are staying positive that we will be able to take home a rainbow baby eventually.

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming?

    Yes we will have a follow up RE appointment at the end of the month after my cycle day three blood results come in.

    QOTW: Do you feel that TTC has helped you to have something to focus on and look forward to after your loss or are you just frustrated to be back at the beginning again?

    Frustrated of course because in addition to our later loss with our daughter last year we have had two early losses before her and one after. I feel like we are stuck in a hole and can't get out. However, being able to try again will at least make me feel like we are doing something.

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?

    I am thinking about how we will spend our daughter's angelversary in September. My MIL was talking about coming up then and I honestly just want to be alone at the cemetery with my husband and have a small balloon release or something. The anticipation of that day is really hard... Harder than her EDD was for me.
  • Where are you in your TTCAL journey?
    CD 22 first cycle ttc after my most recent loss. I am in 2ww hell right now!

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming?
    No appointments.

    QOTW: Do you feel that TTC has helped you to have something to focus on and look forward to after your loss or are you just frustrated to be back at the beginning again?
    TTC again has given me something to look forward to after I lost my daughter, but sadly we had two early losses. Continuing to have losses has been extreamily frustrating and stressfull, especially when all the Drs keep telling me they can't find anything wrong with me. All I can think is, 3 miscarriages and a full term loss? My body is screaming something is wrong!

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?
    Waiting to test. I am going to test the day we leave for vacation. I figure if its negative, then I have a week full of fun and drinking to look forward to. And if its positive, we'll have a week together to be hopeful.

  • Hey TTCAL ladies--I posted this at the tail-end of last weeks TTCAL check in but I think it got missed. Wondering if any of you have any input for me:

    Question about TTCAL--DH & I are thinking about taking that next step. I decided to lurk a bit on the TTCAL board, but I'm not sure that I feel like I belong there. Seems a lot of the losses are early MC type losses? Not that I'm trying to down play that at all, but I've had an early loss and now my loss of Astrid and they definitely feel different for me. Anyone have any input on that board as far as TTCALateLoss goes? or do would you recommend staying here? I'm just nervous I think.

    I have mixed feelings about the ttcal board. I have found it to be a great source of information, and a lot of the woman there are very supportive. But, I do find it hard to relate to many of them. Having a late loss is so different compared to an early miscarriage, so for the most part I try to stick to this board. But I do lurk on ttcal a lot an chime in here and there.

    I hope you can find what works for you.
