Re: TTCAL check in

  • Where are you in your TTCAL journey?  cd 19

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming? Nope, just had some blood work, and H did a semenalysis, should get results soon

    QOTW: Do you find it harder to remain sane during the wait to O or two week wait? My craziness starts a few days before I think I will O, then once O is confirmed I'm ok until about 7dpo, then the crazies come back!

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week? Had my much awaited appointment with my OB on Monday. She wasn't concerned that I'm not pregnant yet. She did ask if I wanted clomid, which made me a bit nervous as she had done no testing. She suggested just trying another 6 months. I agreed to wait on the clomid, not sure I can go for 6 months but I think atleast three. So, we'll see. I'm feeling a bit better having seen her, and having some what of a plan. She is checking my testosterone level but I really think everything is fine with me and H, it's just taking a while this time.

  • Where are you in your TTCAL journey?  Cycle 4 CD9

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming? Not for now.

    QOTW: Do you find it harder to remain sane during the wait to O or two week wait?
    Sometimes I feel like it is hard to feel sane at all, between missing my son and longing to be pregnant... Don't think there is specific timing to it.


    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week? I'm feeling kind of unmotivated right now about everything. Even about TTC. I was so disappointed last month. I guess maybe I'm just worn out and not excited about the possibility of another disappointment.

  • Where are you in your TTCAL journey? cycle 2, cd 28

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming? None


    QOTW: Do you find it harder to remain sane during the wait to O or two week wait? Two week wait for sure! I'm a crazy person.


    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week? Annoyed and confused by my cycle this month. Since I've been tracking my cycles have been at most 26 days, from before Lincoln to when my cycles started again after he was born. So to suddenly be on cd 28 is annoying. I took a FRER yesterday morning and it was negative so I am relatively sure I'm not pregnant, so just frustrated that AF hasn't arrived so we can get trying again.

    TTCAL journey: I've taken the last 2 months off. I needed a break. I rarely checked the bump and allowed myself to relax. During that time we met with an RE due to multiple losses. We decide to do an IUI cycle. It starts in about a week. I'm more than a little nervous and excited.

    I have a MUCH harder time with the TWW. I'm crazy. LOL!

    Open topic: can't believe that summer is almost over and I'm back to school in a few weeks. Ugh it went too fast.

    BFP #1 March 24, 2010; missed m/c May 26, 2010 @ 12w 4d; D&E May 28, 2010

    BFP #2 Oct 20, 2010; My little boy was born on July 5, 2011

    BFP #3 April 30, 2013; Chemical Pg May 5, 2013

    BFP #4 Aug 22, 2013; It's a boy.  Loss discovered at 24 weeks on Jan 15, 2014 (cause CMV virus)    

                                  <3 We love and miss you Timothy <3

    BFP #5 April 6, 2014; missed m/c May 15, 2014 @ 9 weeks; Misoprostol May 15, 2014; D&C May June 3, 2014

  • Where are you in your TTCAL journey?  cycle 1 day 16

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming? no

    QOTW: Do you find it harder to remain sane during the wait to O or two week wait? I'm not sure since this is my first cycle, but I think the two week wait is going to be harder. I really want to test now and I know it is way too early. Good thing I don't have any tests in the house right now.

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week? I don't feel like I really fit anywhere right now. There's not many people who are TTC after a loss that also have a living child. I feel like I'm only allowed to talk about one of them anywhere and it's making me sad. I've also been super emotional the last couple of days. That's really not helping.

  • @dadalou‌ - I can relate. I feel like so many PAL moms have a rainbow baby and not an older child, or that so many TTCAL have lost their first born. And the complexities of losing a baby with a living older sibling sometimes really overwhelm me. You are not alone! Even though it may feel that way sometimes.

  • Thanks @stefuge. I know there are a few others here who can relate. I was just having a terrible day. Something was said elsewhere that really got to me.

    Where are you in your TTCAL journey?  cd 14

    Do you have any relevant appointments upcoming? 
    Sound like a broken record, but still need to make an appt w/ my MFM and still avoiding it.

    QOTW: Do you find it harder to remain sane during the wait to O or two week wait? 
    The whole thing drives me nuts. Which means I’m a total joy to live with. My body is so out of whack, I never know when/if I o. Lame.

     Open Topic. What is on your mind this week? Just a hormonal/grieving mess these days. Bringing a friend who is having a nightmare pregnancy dinner tonight and I’m actually jealous. Just wish I knew if it was even possible for me to get pregnant again. That is something no RE/OBGYN can tell me. I just hear “we don’t know” over and over. I feel so pessimistic.
