Saying fairwell to 2012 — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

Saying fairwell to 2012

I'm having some mixed emotions as we say goodbye to 2012. It was a crazy rollercoaster of a year starting with the passing of my last grandparent, a third ectopic, a failed IVF and FET, stressful changes at work and then...a miracle. It's been a year of getting to know myself, seeing a new side of my husband and accepting that I'm a different person now no matter how much I denied it. It's definitely been a defining year in my life.

Here's to 2013 being a banner year filled with lots of happiness!
3 ectopic pregnancies (EDD's 1/30/12-tube removed, 6/2/12-methotrexate and 10/2/12-methotrexate)
IVF and Natural FET resulted in BFN's and a hole in our wallets
Natural BFP #4 on 9/7/12 gave us our miracle on 5/18/13

  • 2012 was indeed a roller coaster.  The year began as I was recovering from my first D&C and extremely stressed over the genetic testing we would have to have done to rule out any issues with me (due to having had a sibling back in the late 1980s born with Trisomy 21). Then in February getting the good results and being told to try again followed by a BFP in March, only to discover a second mmc on our 3rd wedding anniversary.

    In July our journey with this LO began, but it was anything but easy for the first few months with back-to-back bleeding episodes (reminiscent of those with our second loss) and me sure that we had lost another baby. I am beyond grateful that we have made it this far and cannot believe that tomorrow begins the third trimester.  Right now my little guy is very active and it is amazing. Not a day goes by that I don't feel lucky to have him.   

    2012 was also a year when I learned so much- and I am grateful to all of you who offered support and wisdom.  You ladies are amazing. 

    I wish for all of us a happy and healthy 2013.  And I wish for all the ladies on TTCAL that 2013 is the year they get their sticky babies.

  • Funny, I was just thinking about this today. Last NYE I remember getting REALLY drunk and yelling "F*ck 2011" to everyone at my party. Embarrassed We had our m/c in November and I was still bleeding and dealing with complications from my botched D&C on NYE, a month and a half later. I thought for sure 2012 was going to be better. In many ways it was, but it also included 8 months of struggling to conceive and beginning fertility treatments before we were finally successful (despite getting PG on our first try the first time). 2012 has definitely been a roller coaster, and while I am glad it's ending on a high note, little did I know this time last year that some of my darkest days were still ahead of me.

    Cheers to 2013.

    ITA! 2011 was worse than 2012 in a lot of ways, but 2011 also had some early joy. 2012 was a daily struggle until getting our BFP at the very end. I'm still not convinced this pregnancy is the one, so I can't give full credit to 2012 for redeeming itself just yet but I can give it credit for at least another chance out of the gate.

    My thoughts today are with our TTCALers still waiting for their BFPs. C'mon 2013... Be good to our friends!

  • I totally know how you feel, my friend. I'm ready for 2012 to be so over, but I'm hopeful that's it's ending on a high note. We had a good OB appointment today. Still in denial that this pg is going so well. I'm hoping 2013 brings you all the joy in the world, mostly in the form of a little bundle of joy!!

    You read my mind.  This time last year, I was still inexplicably anovulatory and had been for over a year.  I was angry, confused and convinced 2012 had to be better.  As you said bananers, some of my darkest days were still ahead and yet, here I am now, expecting a little boy.  I was tempted to say "F*ck 2012" as well but I'm choosing to accept everything the year brought and use it to form who I want to be for the future and for my son.

    Here's to all of us finding happiness in 2013 and support from each other!
