Happy 1st Monday of March! I hope the luck of the Irish is with all of us this month. Bring on the BFPs!
My Update: CD19. Into my TWW. After all my complaining about my DH last week, we did get several BDs at what I hope was the right time. So, now we pray and wait. And I try not to read too much into all the little symptoms that my brain is tricking me into feeling.
My birthday is Thursday, so I plan to test that day. I will be 7 DPO and rationally I know it's probably too early to get a BFP. But, it's my party and I'll test if I want to!! I don't temp or chart, so I don't know exactly when I ovulated. So, cross your fingers and send up a little prayer for me!
On a side note, for the past week when I blow my nose, my snot (sorry, TMI), is bloody. It's the worst when I first wake up and seems to taper of through out the day. I'm trying to will myself to not hope that this could possibly me a sign of pregnancy. Especially because it started two days before I believe I ovulated. And, after 4 pregnancies, this would be a new symptom for me.
Any other causes? I have not been sick, not even a cold and it's been realtively warm (for winter in Ohio) and moist (rain and snow).
Have a good week, ladies! Prayers, hugs and baby dust all around!View Thread
Hugs! Sorry you're havng a rough time. And you're right. It's hard. Incredibly so. It's unfair and it just plain sucks. And it's a total slap in the face when someone makes comments about not wanting kids. I just want to shake them.
I think we are all entitled to our raging Kindergarten fits. I know I've had my own share. It's such an emotional journey with incredible highs and crushing lows. Some days, just making it through the day I'll consider a success.
Chin up, Momma. We're all going to have good days and bad. But, in the end, it will be worth the anguish and despair. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.View Thread
Katie, thank you so much for listening. Knowing I'm not the only one facing this is good therapy. It's very true that men don't quite understand, to at least they process and express it differently. I too feel like most everyone just hit the fast forward button on me after my second loss.
Vybe- thank you for the perspective. I definitely don't consider his needs, at least not lately when it comes to TTC.
Shana - sexting... My dh would be totally blown away if I did that. Lol. But, you've given me an idea to try to spice things up. I think this bding on a schedule is taking the fun out of it for my dh. So, I.m going to suggest we take a shower together (sorry if tmi). It's something we rarely do, there's a 15 inch height differen between us, so it's a challenge .
Thanks again ladies, for helping to lift my spirits!!View Thread
Ani - sorry about the e-coli. That sounds awful. Hope your 2ww goes quickly. Praying for a BFP for you!
Katie -crossing my fingers for you, too!
Perry - sorry to hear about the cysts. Hopefully you'll get lucky without the meds this cycle.
My update: CD#13. Fertile period. My plan was to BD on CDs 12-15. However, flippin DH has a cold so last night was a no-go. He's a big damn baby when he's sick, so I doubt he'll feel up for it tonight either. I'm trying real hard not to be completely pissed at him, but I'm not having much success. I know he can help it, but, man up! It's a cold, no e-coli!
Ugh. I hate this. He was sick at this exact same time last month too. Coincidence? Or is this my sign to give it up? I'm having a really hard time getting him engaged in this whole TTC ordeal. He's so laid back about it, takes the mindset that it'll happen when it happens. Can't understand that there is no chance of me getting into that mindset.
We had a big argument over it last month. I told him that I needed him to help me, to take an interest and pay attention to dates and understand when it's important to BD. I told him I feel like I'm on my own, that I pretty much went through two m/c on my own and now I have very little support with TTC. It's too big of a burden to take on by myself, and I'm having a really hard time dealing with it now. He promised he would. But he's not. He's just as oblivious as ever and it's driving me insane. I can almost guarantee we'll have a nice big fight again. He'll come home andwonder why I'm upset and quiet, which will tick me off even more because he just doesn't get it.
Sorry for the long-winded pity party. I'm angry at the world today.View Thread
Ani - O vibes. Lots and lots and lots of them. Glad everyone is feeling better as well.
Perry - fingers are crossed... sending you patience vibes, as well. 2ww is pretty close to torture. Good Luck... I still have a good feeling about you!
Katie - More O vibes and strong swimmer vibes to you. Good luck momma!
Shana - good luck with the new plan. I think we're going to try the same thing.... We're also on almost the same cycles... I'm on CD#6. I'm not sure about the laptop, I've read stories about the heat possibly having a negative effect, just not sure how much it's based in science vs old wive's tale.
My update: CD#6... Stupid AF missed her flight to Siberia last week. She's rescheduled for take off on March 14th lol. Not a whole lot to report. Like Shana, we are trying an every-other-day BD routine starting tonight. Will move to daily on CD12-15.View Thread
Perry - Thank you for the info! I really don't know why he said I would only need it for the first 16 weeks. He didn't say too much about, just that it was my choice and we'd talk more when I get pregnant. He also said he would put me on a progesteron supplement for the first trimester as well.
Honestly, I think he is just trying to appease my need to do something the next time around, to relieve some of the helplessness.View Thread
Welcome to the community! I am sorry for your loss, but as Katie said, this is a great place to find comfort and support.
Were your periods regular prior to your pregnancy? Pregnancy can really screw up your cycles and it can take a while to get back on track.
You are very young, and it really hasn't been that long that you've been trying. But, I don't think it would hurt to at least have the conversation with your doctor about looking into possible reasons for infertility or conceiving. Get his opinion and go from there.
Hey Shana. Sorry about the BFN. I'm right there with you, AF should be here tomorrow for me. Hopefully AF takes a hike for you!!!

I have a side note for you as well... I noticed in your signature that you take Lovenox when pg... how is that for you? My OB has offered to put me on it next time around for the first 16 weeks (I have no clotting disorders that we were able to identify, but he did say there may be other factors out there that haven't been discovered). He said it's completely my choice and I really don't know what to do. DH is no help, either. Just says it's up to me.
I'm a little nervous about giving myself a shot. I'm not scared of needles, but doing it to myself just gives me the willies.
Any thoughts or words of wisdom? I assume I would be at an increased risk for bleeding, but do you know if there are any risks to the baby if I take it?
Ahh! I know I'm way ahead of myself since I'm not even pg yet, but this has been on my mind for a while.View Thread
Katie - lots and lots of O vibes coming your way as well. Good luck. I've got my fingers crossed for you!
Perry - Good luck! Hope the 2ww goes quickly for you. This last one was painfully slow for me... Patience is not a virtue I possess. You're going to get a BFP, I can feel it. This group is due for one. It's been a while!View Thread
