Re: TTCAL w/o 10.4

  • Introduce yourself and anything you think is important: number of loss(es), when you had the loss(es), diagnosis/conditions surrounding loss, etc. MC @ 8 weeks in Aug. 2021

     

    Status: WTO (I think O might be today/tomorrow)

     

    How are things going? What is something that you are struggling with and/or what is going well? I’m doing better this week. We had good timing if I do O soon, so that is always encouraging to know we gave it a good effort. I’m kind of dreading seeing all of the pregnancy and infant loss awareness stuff this month. I’m glad people will talk about it because I think it needs to be more public in our society, but personally it kind of stings.

     

    Any testing coming up/any recent results? Nope, just entering a couple weeks of twiddling my thumbs.

     

    Questions? Not today

     

    GTKY: what are you favorite fall colors to wear? I love a nice deep red/maroon, but to be fair I will wear it pretty much year-round.  :D

    Introduce yourself and anything you think is important: number of loss(es), when you had the loss(es), diagnosis/conditions surrounding loss, etc. CP in Sept

    Status: WTO 

    How are things going? What is something that you are struggling with and/or what is going well? welp, i'm annoyed that it seemed like AF was done... but then the last 2-3 days it been a bit of just old dark blood and some what i would call clots i guess, it's not heavy, like really only there where i wipe. not normally how my cycle goes, but it is the first one after the CP. so i dunno. maybe i should've put this rambling comment as a questions. dr google tells me a heavier, more clotty period is normal. 

    Any testing coming up/any recent results? Nada

    Questions? see above i guess, just rambling into the abyss. 

    GTKY: what are you favorite fall colors to wear? burnt orange/red/browns - think colors of like zion/utah national parks.

    eta: spelling is hard, caught myself

  • @abjm0325 I agree it's so important to talk about loss but it's also really really hard to talk about especially if it was difficult to go through. And for you I'm sure it's still very fresh in your mind. My loss happened at the end of October last year so this is really the first time I've had the awareness month to remind me.

    @anniemarie887 I haven't had a CP, but that sounds normal from what other people with CPs have experienced. Those latter days of AF suck because you're like when can I stop wearing protection. I wanna be freeeee! lol

    Introduce yourself and anything you think is important: number of loss(es), when you had the loss(es), diagnosis/conditions surrounding loss, etc. MC at 8 weeks, late Oct 2020

    Status: TWW, WTO later this week

    How are things going? What is something that you are struggling with and/or what is going well? Things are going pretty well. I think I have everything in order to ship the blood and endometrium samples to the immunology lab. Big weight off my shoulders. Still waiting on that pre-auth though for the genetic labs that I'll get at Quest. Hurry up dammit. At this point I don't think I'll get clearance in time to TTC for December. If clearance happens in December it will be after ovulation knowing my luck :angry: oh well. I just want as many chances as possible for a 2022 baby.

    Any testing coming up/any recent results? Blood draw tomorrow morning. I think the results take 3-4 weeks? 2-3 weeks? Not really sure.

    Questions? Nope

    GTKY: what are you favorite fall colors to wear? My favorite cold weather color to wear might just be golden and/or mustard yellow. Or burnt yellow I suppose you may call it. Olive/dark green is also a favorite. Essentially I like colors that work well with my brown hair lol.

  • @anniemarie887 I don't have any CP experience, but that sounds like what I might expect. Super annoying that it is hanging around this long for you though. 

    @inthewoods23 Ugh, December feels like such a long wait. I hope you're able to get your results back quicker than expected. In unrelated news, I also love a nice olive green. You can keep the mustard though thanks to my skin tone.  :D
    anniemarie887inthewoods23
  • thanks ladies, yea day 9. def annoying.
    @abjm0325 i feel comfortable talking about it with the people that in my life and i see face to face, i'm not sure i'm a shout it from the social media pages type person about it. but i do get that's therapeutic for some
    @inthewoods23 gah, i hope you can get scheduling/testing sooner than december! but i also understand the idea of setting yourself up for that timeline to not be disappointed 
    abjm0325
  • @abjm0325 Glad to hear your timing was good!

    @anniemarie887 I remember AF being a heavier and weirder one after my MC. I hear it's similar after a CP. Hopefully it gets back to its usual quickly.

    @inthewoods23 Glad you have all that done, but I'm hoping with you that it's before December!


    Introduce yourself and anything you think is important: number of loss(es), when you had the loss(es), diagnosis/conditions surrounding loss, etc.:
    MMC March 2019, infant loss June 2021.

    Status: TWW

    How are things going? What is something that you are struggling with and/or what is going well?: Yesterday and today have been extra hard. Yesterday was 4 months since my daughter passed, and I ended up having to leave work early today because I kept breaking down.
    TTC related, my temp dropped pretty drastically this morning, so it looks like AF might be on the way.

    Any testing coming up/any recent results?: Nope

    Questions?:

    GTKY: what are you favorite fall colors to wear?: I love neutrals, and earthy tones, so my whole wardrobe just becomes more relevant in the fall lol
