Hugs to you Momma. I didn't want to bog down Shana's post, but I wanted to reach out to you. You've definitely seemed discouraged lately. My hope is that, very soon, you will be coming here to announce your awesome news and update us as your little bean grows. Because, though it may be painful that it's not me giving updates, it gives me hope to see someone else, especially from this group, go on to have a successful pregnancy. It validates all the struggles and sacrifices we make.
I always read your signature on your posts to remind myself that there is always hope. DH and I watched that movie the other day and I got all weepy at that line in the movie, thinking of you and all of us and what we face daily. DH was like, what the heck are you crying about??? lol!
I have hope for you, even if you're not feeling hopeful for yourself. I pray that your days get easier. Hugs!View Thread
Pray, I am so, so sorry for all that you have gone through. You truly are an incredible person and have given so much love and support. Please, don't ever think you are depressing or discouraging to this community. You are the polar opposite. A true example of strength, faith and hope.
We are all here for you. To be your strength and support as your journey unfolds, no matter where it may lead.
I will keep you in my thoughts and pray for comfort and guidance for you. God bless you.View Thread
Lisa - as far as how long to wait to announce.... it's really up to you. With my first two pregnancies and my first m/c we announced pretty much right away. I really didn't have any clue how common m/c's were then (and oh how I miss that blissfull ignorance). With my second m/c we waited until I had an ultrasound at 7 weeks that showed a heartbeat. I wanted to wait a little longer but my DH was chomping at the bit, so I caved.
That said, I've come to find through my losses that, when it comes to grief and loss, I am a very private person and do not like to share my grief with many people. So, next time around I am hoping to wait until about 15-20 weeks.
Good luck with the IVF. Fingers and toes are crossed!!View Thread
Hey Shana. Sorry about your BFN. I got another BFN this morning, so I'm pretty sure this month is not my month. Sucks. Big Time. AF should be here Thursday.
To answer your question... I do not tell DH about the negative tests. I don't even tell him when I'm going to test. Don't really know why. I guess I don't want to get his hopes up just to have to turn around and disappoint him when it's negative.View Thread
Wow Ani. That's insane. People absolutely dumbfound me. I'm sorry that you have to deal with that crap. It just doesn't make sense and it is so unfair that you (and all of us) want nothing more than a healthy baby and do everything in our power to make that happen but we continue to struggle to get pregnant and/or carry to term. But yet, someone who doesn't want a baby gets pregnant so easily. It's such bull. send her a box of condoms and a how to prevent pregnancy book for her next birthday!
My update: CD# 26, 11 DPO. Tested last night, but BFN. Getting a little discouraged. I'm out of tests, but will buy a few this evening and test again tomorrow morning.View Thread
Hey Vicky. Crossing my fingers for you that your AF symptoms are really PG symptoms.
I have been waffling back and forth thinking I'm PG and then getting discouraged. I went ahead and tested yesterday knowing full-well that it was too early. BFN, of course.
I am waiting until Monday to test again. AF isn't due until next Thursday. Still experiences some potential symptoms like frequent peeing and tingly, tender and fuller-feeling breasts. Not convinced that it's not all in my head though.
Oh, BTW... I don't like eggs, so you're in the clear!View Thread
