  • @SoonToBeMommaHowe - I'm hanging... 7 - 10 dpo is the hardest for me. I just want to know one way or the other. No symptoms here either, but probably too early for them.. I don't get many that I can distinguish from PMS symptoms anyway (sore breasts is really the only one I get...)

  • @ladipale I hear you 7-10 days DPO is rough- it's like you just want to know at that point and stop all the waiting around. Step away from the tests :)  

    I'm at a lame 2 or 3 DPO so I have some waiting to do. I think I'm going to start to temp next cycle. I used to temp before I started working with the RE and I had a good sense of my cycle but this cycle got  a positive OPK on Friday with FF putting my O date at Saturday but I had no symptoms of O at all and my CM had dried out so I wonder if Friday was O day. Anyway since I'm not being monitored I'm getting used to my natural cycle again.

  • First official TWW after MC in July, just 1DPO today.  OPK gave me a smiley face yesterday...I was beginning to wonder at this point if I was even ovulating after failed OPKs and funky cycles since the MC. Knowing that O occurred on CD 19-20 is reassuring that my cycle is back on track at least. FX for lots of BFPs at the end of this long TWW!
  • @MK1013 FX that it is not residual! Keep us posted.

    @MK1013 Congrats! If your last draw was on 9/6 and you got your period on 9/23, I'd say it's pretty unlikely that this is residual. Did you take any HPTs in September and get a negative?

    As for the doctor's office urine test, I've always heard that those aren't nearly as sensitive as home HPT urine tests. Their threshold for a positive can be 50 or greater (home tests can be as low as 10). Given your Tuesday bloodwork result of 75, it's entirely possible your HCG was too low Monday night to trigger a positive at the hospital. Unlike urine tests that are qualitative (yes/no) answers, your bloodwork is quantitative and suggests you are indeed pregnant. FX for good numbers from your next draw!

  • Having a boo-hoo, woe is me day. 9 dpo and after 8 days of being positive and optimistic, I'm just over it... Haven't tested yet (miracle for me!) Days 9 - end are the hardest for me. And my emotions and chocolate craving make me think I'm days away from my period..... I'm quickly approaching one year since we conceived and I'm surrounded by pregnant people - so hard for me to not be jealous.

  • I totally get what your saying @ladipale. We just hit the 3 year mark andMy sister text me today to see if there was a weekend when her and her newly pregnant friend could come spend the night and I told her I just didn't know if I could have that right now. She got mad and told me they'd get a hotel and then stopped texting me back. But bottom line I know what I can and can't handle and that I don't feel like I can and I'm not gonna force myself to fake it.

  • I feel you @SoonToBeMommaHowe - my sister had a baby 1 week after my due date back in September and I haven't met the baby yet. She got really mad at me because I unfollowed her on Instagram for a while but i just couldn't handle it. I'm going up alone to meet the baby this weekend before a bday party the following weekend for her other son. I think the anticipation of that is making it hard as well. Maybe it would be easier if I'm pregnant? I don't know. I do know that I will always have a niece that is the exact age my mc baby would be and it stings.

  • @SoonToBeMommaHowe and @ladipale You have every right to protect your feelings.  I bet your sister will understand after a bit of time has passed.  Unfortunately I've realized through this process that others put a time frame on how long they think we "should" grieve.  But, only WE know when we are ready.  Good luck to both  of you.  I've been avoiding my best friend like the plague.  Her due date is one week after mine was.  She keeps texting me about her appointments and I don't respond with more than 2 or 3 words.  Unfortunately she owns a doggy daycare that my dog goes to and I see her everyday.  Ugh, I have to watch her growing belly for the next 7 months.  :(
  • @ladipale- Im sorry you are having a tough day. Being in the same position you were months or years later while others move on and have their babies is just so hard and unfair and something I struggle with as well.

    @soontobemommahowe -Im sorry you got that reaction from your sister. You are right to protect yourself though and obviously a newly pg woman coming to stay at your home!? would not be best for you right now.

    @justsuzie- I hate it when people think you should just be over it by now or its not that big of a deal. Until you are in someone's else shoes you really don't know what they are going through. I have had some insensitive comments from friends about it and just stings.

  • I am wishing I could tag you ladies, but mobile bumping is being difficult this am. I am sorry you ladies are having a hard time right now and I completely understand what you are going through. one of my coworkers, that I can't avoid, is due 2 weeks following my 2nd MC due date in February. And now I am stuck watching her bump grow knowing that mine need should be about the same.
     I am rooting for all of you and hoping we all get our rainbow babies soon.

    On a side note the BSC is setting in. I'm 6 dpo and am already starting to ss. the next week is going to be long...
