Note: This thread will include discussion of infertility and loss. If these topics are triggering for you, please take care of yourself while reading and posting here.
This thread is for those of us who went through infertility testing and treatments before becoming pregnant. Many of us have had different struggles to get to this place and face different anxiety and concerns now. This thread is for us to support each other, and we hope it will be a safe space. This thread is created every month, given the reduced traffic. Please feel free to post here at any time during that period, whether for good news or bad. Consider this an ongoing conversation.
This thread is for those who have experienced infertility. The struggles we discuss may or may not apply to those who became pregnant easily. If you have not experienced infertility, please be considerate and sensitive if you feel the need to post in this thread.
How far along are you?
GTKY: Have there been any pleasant surprises this pregnancy (e.g. lesser weight gain, fewer cravings, luxurious locks, etc.) that you're going to be sad to see go? Have you stayed in touch with your nurse/doctor/clinic at all with your progress (or is that something you do/have done)?
