~*~*~Ladies in waiting*~*~*~ — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

~*~*~Ladies in waiting*~*~*~

This is group designed for all the ladies in the various stages of waiting after a loss: waiting to miscarry, waiting for AF to arrive, waiting to TTC again, and waiting for BFP.   I post every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.


*Since this process is such a true test in patience, it is nice to have the support and friendship of other women going through similar experiences and emotions.  As people go through the heartache of losses, I have found either it strengthens their relationship with God or it makes it harder.  I would love to help you in anyway that I can to find the strength.  I found that it really helped me pull through.


*If you would like to be added to the list please post current TTC status. There will be a daily question, a place for prayer requests and a daily inspirational verse.  I purge this list every now and again, so if I?ve added you before but you don?t see your name now, just let me know!



Good afternoon ladies!  Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and I?m hoping to see there some BFPs over the break!


HappyLaLa ? are your betas down to 0 now?  You?re so close!


YAY for lorlei13 and tctibbe who are both back to actively ttc!  I know its been a long time coming for both of you!


A quick welcome to Nathan&Christina, marriedtoeric, and JuneBug060609 who are all new to the group.  I?m sorry for all your losses and all that you?ve been through.  I know you?ll find some great support here and that you find our graduates list very soon!


God Bless!!!


Upcoming events:

12/20 ? Abby7?s surgery to remove uterine septum

Inspirational Verse: John 3:16: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Prayer Request/s: (new requests in red)

- The girls that are currently going through a loss.  Including the ones that are coming back from PgAL L

- The girls on PL board that sadly join us daily.

- All the new BFP ladies ? that they have sticky babies and a H&H 9 months!

- Some of our graduates are getting very close to their EDDs.  Lets pray for their deliveries to go smoothly

Re: ~*~*~Ladies in waiting*~*~*~

  • I took my last Femera pill yesterday and start my injectibles tonight.  Doing an ultrasound Thursday morning to see how the follies are doing.  The nurse said that might be the only u/s that I need, that this combination usually has early O's...so I'm hoping!

    QOTD: I have put up my inside decorations (minus the tree because we're going to do a live one)...and I have my tigger inflatable outside, but no lights yet.

  • QOTD:  Nope.  No decorations yet.  For some reason, I just am dreading pulling everything out of the attic.  I'm really contemplating just doing the tree and front door decorations this year.

  • Tested this morning at 10 dpo and BFN. I had posted this on TTGP and some of the ladies there suggested that maybe I am only 9 dpo? Not sure what I think about that. But I am going to try and hold off on testing until the end of the week.

    QOTD: I have everything up except the tree. I think that is a weekend day project, but DH will be gone this weekend, so guess it will have to wait.

  • I'm currently waiting for AF so I can start trying to conceive again.

    QOTD:  I'm a bah humbug this year as well.  I'm just not into it.  I'll wrap some gifts eventually and will lay them on the living room floor as "Christmas decoration."  Smile

  • We will hopefully hear in a week or so if we will be able to adopt a little boy due in May.  If not, we will continue on with our original plan of fostering to adopt and begin classes after the holidays.

    QOTD: We have the house decorated.  Tree, stockings, lights on the house, and small trees on either side of the front door.  Once Cmas cards start coming in, I'll hang them on a ribbon across our entry from our living room to dining room.
  • I am still waiting for my BFP.  If I do not get one this cycle I will be going in on CD3 to get a plan from the RE.

    QOTD: We are pretty much decorated.  The tree is up and we took our christmas picture.  I do not have a ton of decorations.

  • Still in the 2ww. It is dragging too of course!

    QOTD: Yes, we did our inside and outside decorations over the weekend. I love this time of year and being able to sit in the dark with the Christmas tree lights on. It feels so cozy!

  • We are currently in the 2ww.  We were going to wait unitl my next cycle in December to try but decided to try this cycle since the only reason that was holding me back was timing with the school year!

    QOTD:  Yes, all Christmas decorations are up besides my stockings and my wreath on the front door because my MIL makes me one each year and she has not finished it yet.  My hubby and I put all the decorations up this past Saturday because I wanted to enjoy them longer!

  • I'm still waiting to O this week.

    QOTD:  Tonight is the night I'm going to bring everything down from the attic and attempt to get things decorated.

  • Can I be added to the list please? Thanks in advance.

    I'm currently waiting to TTC. We should have the "green light" in February.

    QOTD: DH just helped me pull out the Christmas decorations from the garage. I'll be setting up everything in the next couple of days and we should be getting our tree this weekend when my stepkids are here.

  • I haven't had the heart to decorate yet...nor the time...maybe after my EDD.
