For mobile: BFP mentioned
Welcome to TTC After Loss. I'm so sorry for your loss but am happy you have found us. ((hugs)) This board is full of brilliant and kind women who have experienced the hardship of losing that which is most precious, and I hope you find great comfort and support here in your journey to your rainbow baby.
For those of you so new you don't know the routine, this is a checkin for newer members of the TTCAL Board. My board name is gscoville, but you can just call me G or GS. Please feel free to use this space to ask those "newbie" questions that feel intimidating to ask on the main board, I will try my best to get you an answer.
Please take the time to read the TTCAL blog to answer any questions you may have regarding our board etiquette, TTC, miscarriages & loss, and much more: http://www.ttcalblog.blogspot.com/ If you are a checkin regular and get a BFP, please PM me so that I can add it to the weekly checkin with a warning for other members.
Finally, if you haven't done so, please post your introduction on the main board including your story.
For everyone else: How are you doing? Any news besides what I've asked about here? Please, if you missed last week?s checkin so don?t have an update here to reply to, post an update and let me know how things are going for you!
Updates from last week:
Congratulations Stufie on your BFP, FX for a happy and healthy 9 months for you!
lv2011: I?m so sorry you?re on to a new cycle, especially after such a hopefully long LP ((hugs)) It looks like we?re sharing that aspect of our cycles, my last few LPs have been between 14-18 days long and that really sucks for giving false hope. FX this cycle isn?t so long and just goes better for you!
LaRomana09: How are you finding not temping? I don?t honestly think I could do it, I was away for the weekend and at one point thought I?d misplaced my thermometer and was in an absolute panic! Granted I haven?t yet confirmed O so that would be more panic-inducing than if I was well into my 2WW.
Twirple: How are you finding charting? All looks good so far, please be sure to ask if you have any questions!
Mrs+Hebert: I?m sorry for CD1 today ((hugs)) Looks like you share a longer LP with me and lv2011, bad for getting hopes up unfortunately.
aztoid2006: I?m glad charting is going well for you, it?s nice when all data comes together so nicely to give you clear information! With regards to FF free vs paid version, I?ve always had the paid version and I love it. When I signed up I automatically got the VIP version for a trial month, and when that trial was nearly over I got a hold of the FB discount and picked up the VIP account for a year. So I?ve never actually had the free version to compare, but from what I?ve read you don?t get a lot of things with the free version that I enjoy with VIP, such as the ability to go back and print out old charts, chart comparisons, extra data entry options, etc. It really is a personal choice though!
shandorfml2: Wow, four exact same temps in a row, that seems odd to me. I?d guess either your therm is ?remembering? temps, or you might need to get one that goes to two decimal places instead of only one to catch those more subtle differences between, say, 97.21 and 97.29.
HeyMrsPotter: I?m glad you?re easing into temping so well. You do know not to switch to the new therm until a new cycle, right? Just checking. I know I too was happier when I got my BBT and switched from my regular therm, it just seemed more accurate.
mhiester314: Welcome to the checkin ((hugs)) Have you tried the tinypic.com suggestion for getting a pic into your siggy? That?s what I do too. You have to hit save like a dozen times to make it stick too, don?t give up!
MollySM: Yay for HCG being low! I temped my loss cycle as well and it was a complete mess, hopefully this one is much better for you! There is an empowerment in feeling like you?re doing something about TTC once again, coming off the bench sure helps with that.
mmnumber5: I?m glad your D&C went well and you?re now on the path to moving forward. FX your HCG drops quickly for you!
rmpar29: Your temps could very well be off this cycle if your therm was dying. I?m sorry you?re having a hard time lately, yes, we all do go through these bouts from time to time. That?s why this place is such a wonderful resource! ((hugs))
maydaygirl590: Yay for the house offer, did they accept? I hope all those illnesses your household is experiencing are moving on out!
chknma: Welcome to the checkin ((hugs)) Coverlines can change from cycle to cycle whether before or after a loss ? my coverline has certainly never stayed exactly the same, neither have my overall pre- and post-O temps, O date, LP, etc. Some rare women are very predictable, but I think most of us aren?t so much!
L&C2010: I?m glad you got to have fun and cut loose last weekend! Travel over my weekend actually went better than expected, I?m very thankful for my iPad and a DVD player! lol
+yuMMMy+: Sounds like you?re having a good week, how was your anniversary weekend? Are you planning to get an FF account and start charting? Please ask if you do and you have any questions!
kistyW13: I?m glad the spotting stopped, but sorry you?re still not at zero yet ? hopefully next time! Boo for having to do all those extra chores.
jlb902: I?m sorry you didn?t get any clear answers at your RE appointment, while it?s nice to know there?s no major problems it can be disappointing not to have a ?reason?. ((hugs))
ashellypnut: I?m sorry you?re on to a new cycle ((hugs)) I totally hear you on the whole 2WW thing getting really old, I find I?m feeling that way too.
Quote of the Week:
Question of the Week: If you could be famous for anything, what would that be?
I'd love to be famous for being a fantastic artist or writer. I dabble in both but have never taken it to the next level.
