New thread. Keep it going. I'm ready for some more BFP. Welcome old, new and future ladies. To keep it straight, here's a rundown of us: Shabnam, Jennifer31, Larsoe, Sarah 9 (PREGNANT LADIES). Mrs.Hath and Col (TTC LADIES). Hope21, smmom2, MissP (TTC LADIES WHO ARE IN THE 2WW), Clauds and PrioleauLuv (TTC LADIES WHO ARE WAITING FOR THEIR FIRST AF POST D&C) I think I got it right. Feel free to correct. (I hope my corrections are BFP instead of TTC).

Hi Ladies, I hope this thread brings us all good luck. Mrs Hath you got me almost right this is my 2nd cycle after D&C. I had my first AF 41 days after the D&C and was actively ttc this cycle but nothing. So at CD48 I'm just waiting to have blood work done and have my results back to find out what going on. Lots and lots of sticky baby dust us all on our new thread and best wishes for all our new mum's. ***************************************

 

Clauds - December 21

I was reading over our last thread. MissP I totally hear you and understand how you feel and it is completely normally to feel the way you do. I recently found out as well as my brother's 17yr old girlfriend being pregnant my husband's aunt just found out she is pregnant again she finished having her children so it was not planned but god has blessed her with another she is feeling at the moment she has to start all over again because she thought she was done with nappies etc but god had other plans for her. Although this has all discouraged me MissP we have to trust that god has a equally as great plan for our lives as mothers and as I said it is completely normal to question what is happening to us. Hope you get a BFP this time. Hope21 thanks for your well wishing and I also hope you will get you BFP. Mrs Hath you make me laugh and sound like you are having a great time bding. Hope you get your bfp as well hun. Prioleauluv welcome and I am so sorry to hear of you lost. You will get through this and we are all hear to help you. I agree with missP it would be great if they could tell you more about the infection and let you know if it is something you are prone to or how to avoid and recognise that you have it. I hope your next doc will be better for you. Lots of baby dust to us all.

Hi, ladies! Sorry I have been away for so long. I was traveling for work and it's hard to get to a computer. I'm glad to finally be home though! I finally got the "okay" from my doc last week that dh and I can ttc finally! I am crossing fingers and toes for a Christmas baby. I just wanted you all to know that I am thinking of you in this holiday season and hope we all get good holiday news in the form of health new pregnancies, BFP's and perhaps even your first AF after D&C. They say good things come to those who wait and I frankly think we are more deserving than most. Hang in there ladies and happy holidays. I'll touch base with you all again in the new year...and hopefully with good news too. Baby Dust!

 

Mrs.Hath - December 21

jstaley1228! There you are my dear. I was wondering what happened to you. Glad you are back. Woo hoo! It's on. Now that you are TTC, it's all eyes on that BFP. We are thinking of you too. It's time for some BDing. Clauds: It doesn't sounds like you are ovulating on a normal schedule. The 41 days post D&C is normal (mine took 42), but I don't know why the second one is at 48 days. Uggg......I wonder if that will happen to me too. I am really curious as to what your cycle is doing. And for the record, let's ground your AF for missing her curfew! It was time for to come home, but she's late. Very late. Shame on her.

 

jstaley1228 - December 21

Hi, Mrs. Hath. Thanks for the welcome. It's good to be back. hey, Clauds, or even Mrs. Hath...have you guys tried an ovulation kit? I'm wondering if they are worth it? After 2 months post D&C my hormone levels finally dropped to zero a few weeks ago. I'm just wondering if my body could whip back into shape an ovulate already this month. I was thinking a kit might give me some answers but I am leary of them. Not to mention I am selfish and don't want to pee on a stick for any other reason than finding out if I'm pregnant. Dumb...I know.

 

jstaley1228 - December 21

Oooop, I meant 3 MONTHS post D&C. It took a long time. They ended up monitoring me like a molar pregnancy even though they aren't sure that was what it was. Whatever...just hoping I will ovulate and ttc since it's already been so long.

 

Mrs.Hath - December 21

You know, I have mixed feelings too. I am using an OPK as we speak. I bought them very cheap at early-pregnancy-tests dot com. For the money, this is the way to go. HOWEVER, I got the strips which are a bit hard to decipher. There's a test line and a control line. When you get a control line that is darker than the test line, you have reached peak ovulation. YOu then BD that night and the two following nights. I have yet to see the darker control line and I'm on CD16. It's so hard to tell because the strips are tiny and the coloring in the first place isn't all that dramatic. I can't remember who turned me on to it (MISSP maybe), but the sperm meets egg plan is a great, easy method. YOu don't necessarily need an OPK. All you do is BD every other night from day 11 to day 35. That's it. If you are using an OPK then you BD every other night until you get a positive result on your OPK, then you BD that night along with the two concecutive nights, followed by one day of rest and then one last attempt. After that, it's just a waiting game. Just google sperm meets egg plan and you'll read all about it. I bet you could just do it without the OPK and get the same results. Let me know what you decide. As my cycle is 31 days, I anticipate getting a positive today.

 

jstaley1228 - December 21

I'm going to check it out now. Oh, and I love the trucker meets naughty rest stop girl. Sounds very interesting! I'm at day 14 today so I guess we'll be playing poor law student(that's my dh) meets hot wife(better be me!) at boring law firm christmas party. Thanks for the advice.

 

Mrs.Hath - December 21

LOL! That sounds like a winning combo for sure. Go get em girl. Start tonight and bd every other night until day 30.

 

Col - December 21

I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!! I don't think we will be ttc anytime soon as I have to wait for blood results and our ttc consists of me lying on a Dr's office uncomfortable bed with a nurse and a tube between my legs. How romantic is that??? Poor dh sits on a chair across the room. I guess I will look forward to the next time. All the best to everyone!

 

jstaley1228 - December 21

Thanks for pointing me there, Mrs. Hath. If nothing happens this month I may look into giving that a shot next month. Col...true...doesn't sound terribly romantic but ask if they have any hospital gown is something lacy and maybe you can bring in some mood music or something! Your dh can give you googly eyes from across the room!

 

Sarah9 - December 21

Happy Friday ladies! WOW I'm not on for a few days and look what happens....Welcome back Hope!!! We haven't seen you in forever!!!!! Good luck with that BFP. You are due! Shab----a BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YEa!!! you are about as far along as I am. Today I am 5w4d and sooooo scared! My first dr. appt and u/s is next Friday. What if we don't see a heartbeat???? The last time we did this it didn't turn out so great. Lasoe- I was reading your post and it was like reading my own thoughts. With my first pregnancy, DH and I were over the moon with excitment. I told everyone that would say hello to me. It took us 2 long years to get to that point, I thought it was perfect....until there was no longer a heartbeat at 8wks. Now, I find myself like you, not letting myself get attached yet. I am hoping for the best, but preparing myself for the worst. It makes me lose sleep. All I can do is pray everyday. I will do it for you too. Clauds, missp, mrs. hath, smmom2- I haven't forgotten you ladies either. You are all in my prayers this holiday weekend. I with I could give you all the littler miracles you so deserve! Baby dust to all of you*************************

 

PrioleauLuv - December 21

Thanks for the warm welcome ladies! Mrs.Hath..I'm going to try the sperm meets egg paln too once AF arrives with OPKs. I told myself I wasn't going to get crazy with TTC but who was I kidding? All I want is to be preggo again and then if I do I'm going to a basket of nerves. I was going to order my OPKs from babywishes.com, anyone ever used them? Also, I got my HCG results back and as of yesterday it was 22..this seemed promising to me considering today is two weeks post delivery and I was 20wks along. I am hoping that I should be at zero by Sunday and was going to take a test to confirm. I hear most women don't O the cycle after a loss so I probably won't bother with an OPK, I just want AF to arrive!!!

 

Sarah9 - December 21

Jstaley and Col- Sorry I forgot to add you in my prayer list...but don't worry you are there!!!

 

smmom2 - December 22

OK LADIES....i AM BACK ON THIS COLD COLD SATURDAY!!!! As far as the celebrity gossip...what woman doesnt go gogo over it...It makes me sick that Britnany Spear snad her sister are preggos....

But hopefully you will both have very good neews here soon as well. Jstay,....welcom back hun...missed ya. Have a good Christmas yourslef there girly!!!! Sarah9.... it is so normal for you to be worried sick. A MC takes the innocense out of pg. But try very hard not to worry to much. Just call the dr if you need to. Col......so sorry about the lack of romance in ttc....but the end product is totally worth it. Prio....sorry for your loss. This is the best place to help you heal through it. As for me.....Mrs. Hath I know you are dying.........On friday at 4pm I went potty and wiped and had light pink. So i a__sumed it was af. Later that night at DH's Christmas party I went potty again and wiped and had very red blood. SO I was like ok, not this month!!! So then I had a few drinks and a few smokes( I dont normally smoke) Very sad but I came to terms with it. Then this am.I had spotting....very little. ANd now nothing. I have been telling myself I am NOT pg....yesterday and today I get rounds of nausea...but alot of the kids I tech have had a stomach bug. SO I find myself again saying no way. SO I am goign to test this weekend as it is now driving me mad!!!!!!!! I am ok if not...i just want to get af over with and start again!!!! OK....gotta take the kids to see santa....be back later

 

Mrs.Hath - December 22

Hey girls, just wanted to send a quick hello. Sarah, I know you are crawling with nerves. Hang in there. I'm very optimistic that you will have your bundle of joy real soon. Let us know how the U/S goes. I am hoping for great news. PrioleauLuv: I told you! Those are the normal phases of grief. You get so consumed with getting PG again. You are right to wait for AF before trying again. I can go on and on why you need to get at least one period. It allows your insides to heal, making a better environment for the baby. In addition, it really does help you feel normal again emotionally. Although it is hard, and you are so d__n sad that you have AF instead of a child, it helps you find acceptance. Plus, it allows the doctors to date the baby and makes everything easier all around. Col: That does NOT sound like movie romance at all. (nor was my truck stop adventure!). Uggg! I'm with jstaley1228. Let's get you a lace gown and have DH make googly eyes at you. Well, at least we can laugh at it together. Sort of. jstaley1228: Soooo........how was the holiday party? Tell me all about it. Lame? Did you get to play poor law student meets s_xy wife? LOL. Clauds: AF yet? Okay, I have to run. Egg nog here I come. Hugs to all. SMMOM: I got my eye on you. Still hoping for the BFP.
