Re: Introductions!

  • @kmalls, thanks for asking what is the deal before drawing conclusions. If you made it thorough my novel, then you can find out in there.

    TLDR; human beings change their minds and make mistakes, but the internet is very unforgiving.

  • @kpearse99 I appreciate your response. When we started TTGP we didn't know it would take us little time. I am an anxious person and a hypochondriac and I thought joining a community would make the journey better. I am aware that a lot of people in the forum have been there a long time and that everyone is in different spots because of infertility whether known or unexplained. While I was active in my BMB and knew most of the rules, it's also been a few years so it's perfectly normal that it takes time to get back on track. I guess I did it all wrong. And it certainly was not my intention to post the progression in the TWW as a "look I am pregnant". Realistically, how was I supposed to know? It seems clear to me that I should not have joined, period.

    I will say I am awful at tracking, understanding some of the acronyms, etc. For example, "month/cycle":  at first I thought they were all the same and put in 1/2 because it had been roughly 2 months since we actively started trying but I realized that's not what it meant so I went back to 1/1. I even put two different numbers in other sections, I am a space cadet. I had to go back to the rules a few times. Learning as I went, hoping I would not mess up too much because I already saw that reactions could get heated. I didn't think that at some point I would have to make sure everything matched correctly - from my point of view it was an honest mistake and it was never my intention that it would be taken as lying. Numbers can be important for those comparing journeys and potentially figuring out different approaches.

    I am glad we were able to have an exchange. @bows22 believe it or not I was curious about what you guys were talking about so that's why I asked about that waiting room thread. I tend to not engage with the Peggys or what have you much because they are just trolls and trolls should not be fed, I don't have the mental bandwidth to let them have the best of me.... but sometimes a girl can still enjoy a good popcorn moment. 

    This turned into WAYYYY more words than I intended, and WAYYY more time than I have on my hands - it bugs me that I had to go into way more details that I anticipated and that this had to be part of my intro here but it felt important to share my side.

    Sorry for hijacking the intro thread @October 2020 ladies, hopefully it can go back to regular programming. Best of luck to all the TTGP women, the month is not over so I hope to see more of you here soon (@singing_koala, huge congrats!).
  • @MJDsquared welcome! Looks like some of us might have a different kind of anniversary present this year

    @MJDsquared were you on TTGP prior to conceiving your DD? Your screen name is so familiar, and I would have been active there right around the same time (my DD2 is 22 months now). Either way — congrats and welcome! 
  • @kmalls I was! I think 3-4 months before my BFP. Thank you, congratulations to you too!

  • @homeport17 hooray, another masshole! You don’t happen to have an OB in the metro west area, do you? My first appt is the same day as yours! On my last BMB I ran into one of the other posters at the very first appt :D
  • @kmalls Mine's in Shrewsbury, yours?
  • Ohh and my edd according to my last period is Oct 16!
  • Hi @futuremamadvm! Congrats :) it's always nerve-wracking to get to that first appointment. My mindset is that there's always something new to worry about at every stage, even when the baby is out! It's nice to find support here for sure, especially as a first time mama.
  • @NamelessAria yay! Congrats to you. Wishing you the best 9 months. 
  • @psmk521 I'm in the PNW too! Portland area specifically. :)

  • @Cosmomom129, I am so sorry for your losses. 
    My loss was also due to incompetent cervix.
    It’s a bitch and I’ll be hoping for a full term pregnancy for you.

  • @psmk521 @MJDsquared Yay PNWers!! 🌧☔️🌧
  • @profmcgonagall you are correct a complete bitch.  Our specialist said that it possibly could have been prevented. I told my reg dr a week before I was feeling a lot of pressure.  I was 4cm dilated by the time I got to the specialist. 
  • I can understand not realizing you were pregnant because of illness. DD had a cold and stomach bug so when I started feeling queasy I thought I caught the bug.

    Good luck on your OB search. Finding a practitioner that gets you can be tricky.
  • @salliesqpants I’m figuring you were responding to me. I definitely knew I was pregnant (pee stick) and I definitely caught a stomach bug from my child. What is questionable is whether my current symptoms are from getting over the bug or if they are pregnancy symptoms, which I just thought was funny.
