Where are you in your TTCAL journey? cycle 3 cd 19- 5dpo
Do you have any relevant appts. upcoming? no
QOTW: i have 2 nephews on my side (3 and 5) and for some reason they don't bother me at all. on dh's side we have 1 neice (3) and twin nephews (1)...they were due a month before Bunny. That was sooooo hard for me after we lost Bunny...to watch SIL be pregnant and have the babies was absolute torture. Now it has gotten a whole lot easier but I still have my moments. They also look just like my DH so I always wonder if she would have looked similar to them. sometimes when people dote on them it really hurts my feelings because it makes me feel like no one remembers her. It is really hard and I hate it.
Open Topic:Bunny's EDD is thursday...I really thought after her angelversary I wouldn't care about the EDD anymore but it is coming and I do care. I'm not as sad or emotional about it as I was last year but it is just really hard to think that we should be planning a one year old birthday party is super hard. I'm also just super ready to be pregnant again and stop all of this repeat loss madness.

Where are you in your TTCAL journey? First month trying post loss, CD 17. I'm still waiting to O, I used to always O around CD 17 or 18, but I still haven't gotten a smiley on my OPKs, so it's looking like it will be later this time. I'm worried about TTC again, and pray that it will happen much quicker this time than last time.Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming? NopeQOTW: Are you an Aunt? Since your loss has it been more diffcult to be around your neices/nephews (or other young family members)? Yes, I have 3 nieces and one nephew. All four live in a different city than us, so we don't get to see them too much. My two nieces from my brother and SIL came to visit two weeks ago, and it was really nice to be around them. They are 6 and 2.5, so it wasn't as hard for me as seeing a baby.
Open Topic. What is on your mind this week? I worry about DH a lot lately, he is super stressed. He also doesn't have as much support as I do, and I can tell that he is hurting more now. I'm also worried about money. We do pretty well, but with all of our medical bills and taxes due right now, we are very tight.

Where are you in your TTCAL journey?I'm currently cycling for IVF. Meds are expensive!Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming?I'm presently being monitored every couple of days.QOTW: Are you an Aunt? Since your loss has it been more diffcult to be around your neices/nephews (or other young family members)? I do happen to be an aunt, but the sad thing is that I am not close to my nephews. Mainly because I am not close to my brother, as he has not been supportive of many, if not all, of my life decisions. It has not been difficult to be around other babies generally, but my friend had her baby a few weeks after my edd of the twins, and that has been a little rough at times.Open Topic. What is on your mind this week? I am wondering how the hell I'm going to pay for the rest of my meds. I can't believe that my meds coverage is so crappy that I maxed out on 1 ivf cycle and 2 fets. I hope it works
