  • @vh2014‌ I hope I didn't come across as being critical of all teen parents. I actually work with some exceptional nurses who had their first kids at a young age. It is the bad habits that makes me so mad. The smoking is not near as bad as some other behavior I have the pleasure of seeing.

  • @wvarn. Didn't come across that way at all. My point was just I am jealous and frustrated at all of them now and I was one. Why can't we get ktfu when we are mature enough and want it... but it happens by accident when we aren't. Not fair. Lol.

    Off Mirena Nov 2013, On Nuvaring end of Jan, Back off Sept 2014.  Never ending cycle starting end of Sept... 
    11/14 Provera failed... cycle continues 
    12/14 High FSH (57 "midcycle")  OBGYN had no clue... about anything 
    01/15 More lab results coming back from RE. U/S showed small (1")cyst on left ovary, thin lining, and couldn't locate right ovary so  possibly straight to DE and IVF 

    Occassionally mess with the chart below to see "what if" and learn (not to make it pretty but because FF stays drunk with me).

  • @wvarn I totally feel your pain - my dh is on Paxil too and it makes getting pregnant a lot of work every cycle!  It's a PITA.

  • @davie813 I am sorry you are going through this.  I agree that some of it is hormonal.  I felt irrational and just not right in my head for a few days after my loss.

  • @Davie813‌ so sorry for the rough time right now. Here's to brighter days to come!

    @TAT2MAMI‌ I love tamales!! Where I live now I can never get them and I miss them so much! You are a lucky girl to have homemade ones :)
    36, DH 31 TTC #1 since we got married, July 2014.
  • @Davie813: I hope that your emotions and hormones even out soon. While I have not experienced a loss, I have felt out-of-control due to hormones. 

    Thank you for your kind words about DH. We were able to time sex this morning. I hope that we can schedule one more time before O.

    @TAT2MAMI: Yum--tamales!!

    @suzieq1978: I was born and raised in Central Illinois.

  • @Davie813 Sorry your having to go through this.  Hugs to you. 

  • ((hugs)) @davie813 

    Be kind to yourself. Take care of you, and feel all the feels. It's normal. (not easy, not nice, but normal. And sometimes normal sucks.)

  • @Radiantly I hope for peace for your grandma. I know it's so hard to watch them go, but at least she is getting to go with dignity in her home surrounded by those that she loves.  I'll have you all in the thoughts. 

  • @Radiantly‌ I'm glad you could go be with your grandma. I am sure it's a comfort to her to be at home and surrounded by family.

  • Hugs @Davie813. I'm so sorry you're going through this and that you're struggling with the idea of IVF.
