Re: TTCAL w/o 10.18

  • 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: TWW (but just WFAF now – BFN)

     

    How are things going? What is something that you are struggling with and/or what is going well? I’m annoyed that my cycle is stretching longer than usual, especially with the daily BFNs. If the cycle didn’t work, let’s just get going already, body! I was pretty disappointed not to be a magical TTCAL unicorn when I got the first BFN, but I’m feeling okay and ready to move on now.

     

    Any testing coming up/any recent results? Nope

     

    Questions? Did anyone have a longer cycle (or cycles) after MC? It isn’t unheard of for me to have a 27-28 day cycle but it is rare.

     

    GTKY: What's your favorite scary/horror movie to watch? I don’t really watch scary movies because I’m a wimp that has nightmares, haha. I did enjoy Cabin in the Woods when I saw it a few years ago if that counts.

  • @abjm0325 So sorry for the BFNs. I felt the exact same way this cycle after getting days worth of BFNs. Thankfully AF started, so I hope the same for you too. My periods have been a bit wonky after my July MC, so no real advice, just solidarity. 

    Introduce yourself and anything you think is important: number of loss(es), when you had the loss(es), diagnosis/conditions surrounding loss, etc. MMC July '21 resulting in D&C

    How are things going? What is something that you are struggling with and/or what is going well? Ehh, it changes from day to day. DH and I had a sit down chat last night about timing. We have two big family weddings next Sept and if I don't get KU on this cycle or the next, then we are going to have to take a break in TTC to be mindful of those weddings. It's making me way more anxious that I normally am. And I can't help but to think that I should be more than half way through a pregnancy right now.. 

    Any testing coming up/any recent results? Nope

    Questions? Not now

    GTKY: What's your favorite scary/horror movie to watch? I'm a huge baby and barely watch any scary movies. If I do, I go for the oldies with real bad special effects so that I can laugh while getting scared lol.

  • @tessiesmom26 I definitely struggle with thinking about where I would be in the previous pregnancy right now too. I hope you're able to remain calm the next few months and that you won't have to even worry about taking that month off!
