Lily - April 3

Hi Julie - glad you are back! Sorry it is raining there... ~ I think adoption is an incredible option. I can understand about the biological child as well. I don't know if I told you guys... the day before I found out I was pregnant with my first child, my husband and I seriously talked about adopting a baby from China (don't know why China but that is what we talked about). I think there are so many children in this world that need a family. It is the most incredible gift you can give a child. We are actually still considering adopting a baby. I have always wanted 4 kids but since my husband is 43 and I am 34 and we only have one baby currently, I am not thinking that is very likely.. unless we adopt. ~ Also, for you guys that think you are "over the hill", my grandmother had 14 kids (living)... she didn't start having babies until she was 28 and had her last at 49! She also had 4 m/c and 1 still birth - all before she was 35. She had no problems the older she became. Personally, I think she was crazy to be pregnant that many times... but she is also the strongest women I have ever met. Therefore, I don't think anyone on this board is turning 50 any time soon... so hang in there! :) ~ Okay, I am rambling.. I hope everyone has a good night. ~Oh, I think you for your posts about mood swings. I have decided NOT to talk to my friends for a few days. We will all be better off! I am hitting 16 days post d&c and think the hormones must be getting out of my system soon! ~Hugs to all....

mulgajill: On my computer, on your last "longish" post on the other thread, There's a BIG GRAY BOX over some of the text? Does anyone else see that? Does that mean you were in "poor taste" for naughty talk? Let me know if anyone else sees that big gray box....maybe you should write it again, because I can't read most of your post....it MUST have been good....

 

Lily - April 3

Tara -- LOL. I don't see the gray text and I didn't see any "naughty talk" unless I missed something...??? ;). ~ What did you guys think of the articles about accupuncture? ~ Oh.. last question... we are not going to try yet (hopefully in the next few months) but I also really hate using protection. I generally can tell O day by discharge and just avoid having unprotected s_x during that time. I heard that you sometimes can't tell O day during the month after m/c. Is that true?

 

mulgajill - April 3

hahaha... the greyish box was probably the part of my brain that wasn't working when i was typing the message.... no naughty talk from me .... unless it was greyed out for inaneness.... lol... Lily, your grandmother sounds fantastic.... it is great to hear... i think it is pretty impossible to tell when o day is after m/c because you dont know when your next period is coming..... i will check in tomorrow and let you know how i go with the early hpt.... i have no idea whether i am IN or not.... Tara, you will no doubt have done another stick peeing session by then too... we will see.... :-)

 

Tara-T - April 3

Okay, the gray box is gone, now.....I thought it might have been blocked because of too much talk of discharge, or something {LOL}. I did a pee stick yesterday, negative. I'm starting to hate those little suckers...the only one that actually ever showed me pregnant was "Answer early pregnacy." Anyway, I did Hcg blood test on Friday, and have to go for another Progeserone tomorrow. Not sure I'll bother testing HcG bloods again tomorrow . My symptoms are gone (no more sore b___sts)..and as I said, my temps have been pretty low for me. I would like to figure out what that spotting was on day 7 or 8 after "O". I'm suspecting it's low progesterone which can cause lining to break down. I will talk to fertility doctor about it. Also, I really want to try AI next month. I forgot to tell you all that our post coital result was that some of DH sperm were dead (so sad). Then again, we did get pregnant at least twice...so, who knows. Anyone use Pre~seed? It's supposed to not hurt the little swimmers. Nite ladies.

 

Petra - April 4

Lily, after m/c I had O-like cm three times... I don't think I ovulated three times though.... So I don't know what happens after m/c. I do know that the reason I did not want to ttc right after is because I want an acurate due date. The thought of not knowing if the baby is the right size etc... I don't want that to happen. Almost done with the Y-infection. I can't believe it's april 4 already... only 10 more days till af....! I said before I would test next weekend but I think I'll wait. But then again... who knows.... I have had some feeling that i did before during pregnancy. I don't know what to think anymore and will just have to wait. Anyway, the weather is great, real sunny and warm. I have done a lot of packing this weekend and that really took my mind off the whole thing. Tara-T, I hope you're ok... Your seeing the dr. today. I hope he has some answers for you. It is frustrating this whole pregnancy thing... isn't it? After the whole experience with my father it made me really think about life. My dad is (or was..) the fittest and most energetic person of 75 I have ever met. To see him now in a wheelchair not being able to use his left arm and leg is awfull. He keeps saying that he has no reason to be here anymore. The only thing he can do is watch tv. And I can understand that. He is not able to do anything without help. Ofcourse there is no alternative... Life is really hard and we can do nothing but accept it. My dad always says, everybody wants to grow old but nobody wants te be old. I don't want my father to have to go thru all this pain. Well, I am drifting... anyway... I am at work... and I am not doing what i get paid for.. work... I have lots of things to do and since I only work two days a week I really need to get my a.. in gear. Will try and get on the computer again tonight to see what happened at your appoinment Tara... good luck.

 

Sandra - April 4

I had a missed m/c and a D&C at 10 weeks (baby died at 6 weeks). I too suffered from Y-infection during pregnancy. And went through the same motional stuff afterwards. I did feel however that I should have just been fine afterwards, because I know of ppl who have had m/c and they seemed fine. Little did I know it's because ppl just don't talk about it (outside of this forum heh-heh ). I suffered from terrible PND and panick attacks afterwards, but luckily I can truly say that I've learnt to cope with it now. This is my first cycle after the D&C and I thought I O twice this month. Doubt it, but the right discharge and temp spikes were there. I had a positive test yesterday, and another one today. Still waiting for the doc to confirm it's all true (seems like a dream as we weren't ttc, and it took us 2 years to fall pregnant the first time). I must believe there is hope after it all.

 

Tara-T - April 4

Test results from Friday: negative HcG and progesterone only "2." I haven't talked to doc about this yet, but I suspect the spotting midcylce (which I hoped was implantation spotting) was indeed due to dropping progesterone...maybe didn't ovulate this cycle...my temps were too low (normally in above 98) because they didn't get pst 97.7 this month. Gees...it may still be post-miscarriage irregularities....(miscarried on Jan 18). Or, maybe perimenopause has begun to show her ugly head. It's all so upsetting. Mulgajill: did you test? Petra: sorry about your dad...it's always hard to witness the loss of functioning of someone you love...Lily: thanks so much for your support. I do hope I'm one of those "older" pregnacy sucess stories. And I'm proud of myself for finally hiring a reporductive enocrinologist...even though it's probably going to be costly and time consuming. Hoping tomorrow will be a better day.

Hi all.... petra... only 10 days... it will be a long ten days.... your father is in the same boat as my fella's dad, he is just about imobile from arthritis... really awful.... Tara!!! Get onto your doctor about the progesterone cream... i am going to find a link i looked at a while ago, will post it when i have it... also there was a link which had "normal range prog levels" at different times of cycle. You are in US so no prescription is necessary.... even if not ttc'ing it is really great for women who are a bit older.... use for the 12 days of month after o day.... then stop if you are NOT pregnant.... continue if you are (which is why i wanna know if i am... if not continuing will delay period and when it comes will be heavy as the progesterone builds up the uterine lining and lengthens luteal phase). Also stops those nasty pmt signs and after a few months blocks the androgens which cause those little chin hairs to start popping up.... so it is a good thing to use in any case. I am drinking at the moment so i can have a wee soon.... the first morning urine does not work with me (dont even get a decent 'test' line, apparently second morning urine works better in some people)... so will let you know... Oh... it is before 8 am but brain is switched on this morning.... will check in soon.... after pee session.... :-)

 

mulgajill - April 4

found one link: http://www.hormoneprofile.com/progesteronefaq.htm ..... their dosage rates are 2 X 20mg a day (pea sized amount) for ttcing... i am on 2X50mg a day... dont know about Pea Sized... my pharmacist gave me a diabetic syringe (no needle, just the plastic bit) to suck the stuff out for accurate dose (i haven't told my fella about my progesterone experiment... hope he doesn't find the syringes!!! lol) .... will find the other link now if i can...

 

mulgajill - April 4

here is another link.... normal progesterone level ranges... 2 is very low for luteal phase... Tara if your dr wont give you the cream (i had trouble... had to go to my Dr Nick Riviera clone to get my script... only gave it to me to shut me up.... my "nice" responsible lady doctor wouldn't have anything to do with it).... I used "I have been researching on the internet" as my opening line.... he just looked at me with his mouth open... lol... i also pointed out that even though i am 43 lots of YOUNG women with serious health/weight problems want to get pregnant and no one bats an eye... i am slim, fit and healthy.... he liked that.... saw my point....

Hey all. Reading the discussion about progesterone . . . yes, in the US we can get it otc, but be very careful. The vast majority of progesterone creams on the market are not natural progesterone and thus can be more hurtful than helpful. Get it through your doctor if you can. Some may be reluctant because there is no conclusive proof that it helps (of course, there's lots of arguable evidence that it does help . . . and it won't hurt). Mulgajill, I actually used an otc prog creme for a few months a couple years ago (self-proscribed :)) and don't remember it causing my period to be late or significantly heavier, but of course as with all medications, it will affect different women differently. ~~Tara-T, sorry about the negative hcg . . . the progesterone is definitely low -- hopefully your doctor will respond to that and proscribe supplements 9in case they do help!). You also said that you wanted to try AI (IUI) this next cycle. I think we're doing that this cycle, but won't know for sure until tomorrow (have an u/s schedule for 7:30 am - it's cd 10 - and will find out then). ~~ Lily, my great-g-ma also had a tone of kids (16 births - with 2 sets of twins; 12 survivors;) So her oldest child was preg with her first while my great-g-ma was preg with her last! As soon as the youngest child was out of the house, she promptly divorced my great-grandfather. She was also known to ride motorcyles. . . ~~ Mulgajill, I need to get me one o' them brain switches . . . !! xx

This is totally off topic, but here's a pitch for charity: If you don't know about this site (address below), please check it out. It is a site that sponsors six causes: b___st cancer research, child health, world hunger relief, animal rescue/shelters, rain forest preservation, and literacy. You just "click" on the box each day for each cause and the sponsors help support these causes. There is really NO catch (I've been clicking for over a year). It costs you nothing but a minute of your time to click, and you are not put on any email junk lists because you don't have to put in your email or anything.They have a really cool store also (the store for the six sites is linked together; when you buy something from, say, the animal rescue site, you also contribute 16 bowls of food, for instance, to animal shelters, or sponsor 1% of a mammogram for needy women when you buy from the b___st cancer store). I order stuff from the store (called "Gear that Gives") frequently. Just received my African fertility sculpture (from Ghana) this weekend. It's very beautiful. I also like to order gifts from the store because I am also helping good causes when I give presents. Anyway, just thought I'd pa__s along the info! www.theb___stcancersite.com

Petra - thanks for the information about O after m/c. Urgh.. I unfortunately haven't been using protection becuase I thought I would at least have more signs (I typically can tell when O is without taking temp, etc.). I am not going to stress and freak myself out. Hopefully I will get AF later this month. urgh.. I hear you on not knowing the date corresponding to your due date. I think that is why my little guy was so sick... I had no idea when my last period was and I was either a day overdue or 10 days overdue (depending on which ultra sound you went by). ~ Anyway, hopefully I will get AF (I am so proud to know what that means) later this month.~ I don't know anything about progesterone cream. It is amazing what I learn on this site about my body!! LOL :). ~ Julie - your great grandma and mine should have had drinks. What is up with those women? At least you know you have good genes and can do this! :) ~ Have a good night.
