I thought the other thread was getting too long to load up so thought I would start a new one. Also thought I would share something. This is also an "all about me" entry. I did another HPT and got a BFP !! Faint line but darker than yesterday and there nonetheless. It is difficult to describe what I am thinking - although the usual happiness/delight sensation is not there. I guess because I automatically assume the worse. I ws not suppose to ttc for 2 months and am still feeling pain from my surgery. I rang my GP as OB/GYN is away and he said that it should be fine but I worry nonetheless. My OB/GYN told me to see him at the 6 week mark and is away until then anyway. So I guesss I now have another 2 week wait. I just hope this one goes full term as I am not sure if I am ready to cope with a 4th loss. Fingers crossed.

This is another about me note too . .. .Nothing new for me, but I got a call last night that an acquaintance from church had her second m/c in 3 months yesterday :( My heart is hurting so much for her, and I was surprised at how much emotions it brought up for me. I'm not quite sure where she lives or I'd take some dinner to her family. I was asked to talk to her the next time I see her, but I just feel like that's a little inadequate. Poor thing. . . . DELTA, FRANKS, congratulations!!! BABY, wow!!

BABY: Great news. I am sure it is a genuine positive hpt. SUSAN: I am sorry for your friend. Is it possible that she just got pregnant without really allowing the body to heal? I have heard that is is optimal to let the lining of the uterus build up before getting pregnant. I know lots of women on these boards get pregnant right after a m/c, but maybe there is a benefit to waiting a little bit?

BABY: Di dthey do testing after your third m/c?

BABY - WOW!! WTG i know you will be extremely cautious with this one. but i also know you are excited too! thats wonderful.

Wow! Babytwo congrats!! And so the scary journey begins again... I'm sure you'll be fine - just try to take it one day at a time and know that we're all sending good thoughts your way! I'm now turning my mind to ttc and it's way more scary than I expected and I could really use some advice... As I mentioned before dh and I are going a big trip to South Asia and we had always said we'd ttc while away; as it turns out, i will o at the very beginning of the three week trip and now i'm worried that i shouldn't try because i'll be obsessing and worrying and scared to eat or drink anything for fear of getting ill... but at the same time, i don't want to wait another minute - I'm 39 and terrified that my window of opportunity for a healthy baby is closing fast, to say nothing of all the what ifs - especially what if another m/c and so another number of months and what if we can't get pg again... oh ladies, I'm in a muddle alright... what do you all think, should we try this month or wait? Sorry to be all about me... especially with good news to celebrate... have a wonderful day and baby dust to all

hcw - i agree, you never know what can happen with the strange food. i hate to tell you to wait cuz i unerstand completely, but i dont know much about how food would affect things. I would imagine for the first 7-10 days after, anyway, you would be fine since it wouldn't implant before that, but after that.. well shoot, thats half the trip. oh you poor thing, i dunno what to tell ya so im no help at all.

BABYTWO: That is wonderful news. Remember I got pg 6 weeks after my ectopic and I am now 17 weeks pg. At first my dr. told me to wait 2 months, but I went back for my check up 1 month later and he said that my body was healed and that we could start ttc right away. Also, don't forget, they took your bad tube so you are not at a higher risk to have another ectopic. I'll be praying for you!!! I know this time will be successful for you!!

FRANKS, no, she has some medical problems since she herself is a DES baby, and she's 40. She had one m/c a long time ago, and it's always taken her like 3 years to conceive each child because of her medical issues. After her m/c in February, her doctor said, like mine, it was OK to ttc again right away. Sheer bad luck, but it doesn't make her hurt any less :(

Hey everyone....babytwo congratulations!!!! Did you ever see a speacialist after the 3rd m/c or did they do any tests. Franks and delta that is great news about the little h/b. Try and relax and enjoy this now! Susan I am sorry about your, but going to talk with her might help...because as we all know this is a very lonely supject, with out this message board it would be really hard to cope with all the emotions. Well I am on cd 12 and waiting to ovulate. My husband is getting his little guys tested in 2 weeks and then we will have see the specialist and see what the next step is. I honestly am considering IVF...what do you guys think?? I just don't think I can bare anymore m/c.

HCW: I say, don't wait another month, just ttc on your vacation. Don't worry, it won't ruin anything, although I would limit the drinking. Other than that, I think you'll be fine just doing the usual vacation stuff.

CONGRATULATIONS----BABYTWO on your BFP and to you too FRANKS on the great u/s and to DELTA too on your u/s and good day. I keep you all in my prayers. I have been a bit quiet lately I have been busy. The husband and I went on a marriage encounter this weekend, it where you get away no tv or phone or anything and just to be together and to learn to listen to each other better. We never had problems but my priest suggested it since we are having our marriage blessed. I was scared to be alone with nothing else for so long but I have to say I got tons out of it, my dh really opened up and I have to say we connected on a deeper level. I'm glad we did it. Now it's back to being crazy, our marriage ceremony is May 13th and I'm doing so much around here in between work, to get the house ready for company. I'll be able to rest after work is over May 25th. My last af was really heavy it was the 1st one since my m/c. Now I have to wait to get af again and then we start the testing with the specialist. I don't think it will be too long, I have good cm, so I am guessing I will ovulate probably this weekend or so. I hope everyone else is doing well. I will read as often as I can for the next few weeks, but I might be a little quiet. BABY DUST to all!!!!!!!!!

TUCKER: If you can afford the ivf (I think they are pretty expensive) then go for it. I don't know much about IVF, but are the chances of miscarriage less with that method? I was looking online at pregnant belly pictures at different stages. Some women look 4 months pregnant at 6 weeks! How is that possible? OK, I have a squishy flabby stomach. Does that mean I will show sooner or later than most? I used to be overweight, but not anymore but my stomach never got flat, so I still can't wear a bikini or anything like that. Do you think I will still get a pregnant belly or will I just look fat again?

 

tucker12 - May 3

Hey Franks, yeah my insurance will pay up to 25,ooo, which is awesome. I just don't know what the Dr. is going to suggest, but I will find out in 2 weeks. I think everyone is different with when they show, some people are all belly and some gain weight all over?? But either way you are going to look great with a big cute belly!! You will have to post pictures when you start showing.

FRANKS and DELTA - I'm so glad you had good dr visits yesterday! I know the fear and worry doesn't end there, but at least it's another step forward. BABY - congrats on the bfp! BUFFY, where are you? I hope you are ok. SUSAN, sorry about your friend...that's really sad. HCW, I understand your fears about time running out. I'm 36 and feel that way also. I would probably just keep trying... I don't think the food matters much during the 2ww (unless you got sick from something - is that your concern?) That is a tough call, but I know I hate the thought of losing even one cycle. Nothing new to report here - 15dpo and temps dropped .1 today to 98.7. I'm out of tests so I didn't test this morning. If I'm not spotting by this afternoon, I'll pick some up on the way home. Hope everyone has a good day!

hi all - thanks so much for your advice about ttc... part of me is hoping that i'll o much later than usual and that will make it work out - for those who chart, did you o right on time again after your first a/f or was it slightly unpredicable for the first few months?? Anyway... Angela Mac - best best wishes for your nuptials - i'm absolutely sure that it'll be worth all the effort and will be a beautiful day to remember forever - congratulations! TUCKER, it's great that your insurance covers IVF, yet i'm confused about if you need it yet... also, is there really any less chance of m/c with it? I thought the big problem for IVF was to get them to "stick" ? maybe i'm just misinformed though. anyway, hopefully we will all be joining kristi29, sherie, babytwo, franks, delta and susan w soon! wow, so many on this lucky thread! cheers and thanks for everything ladies...
