@eleighmay Thank you. It’s bittersweet to hear your stories. On one hand so
comforting to know that I’m not alone in this, but sorrow to know that anyone
else has had to suffer like this. I am hopeful that we will all get past this
part of life and have healthy newborns in our arms and be able to move on (as
much as you can/want).
@vlagrl29 I'm the septate (septum) girl So hopefully it will fix the recurrent losses!
@vlagrl29 Definitely do not
think that you are nuts. You need to do what you are comfortable with and will
be satisfied with. I’m not temping, thought about it, but seems like it’s a lot
of work. I think I will just stick with OPKs for now.
@eleighmay *TW* I
also was shy to mention my DS when on loss/TTC boards. But one of my good
friends mentioned to me that my feelings are valid, whether I have a previous
child or not. Secondary infertility brings on a different bucket of problems.
Finding childcare for doctors/procedures, being mentally absent from your children while you deal
with the emotions of loss/TTC, guilt from not giving them a sibling/not being a
“complete” family. So while I feel very lucky that I have DS, I still know my
feelings are valid, if that makes any sense. IF is a terrible thing for all involved, living children or not.
@nessie1313 Sorry, it’s tough to have a close pregnancy
announcement. Hope you're able to take your mind off it this weekend.
