Iím sorry sheece - DH and I did almost nothing this whole weekend! Between being sick and AF arriving I was like you... not in a great place and just wanting to be home and lounge. Oh and I totally ate my feelings ha. Itís thanksgiving here so turkey and pie and snacks... ugh. I feel a bit gross but nothing to do but get back to the gym and my healthy routine. I think my cold is nearly through so hopefully I can get back to the gym tomorrow! Last week at work was so busy itís been over a week since my last workout, yikes! Yay for being cycle buddies!! I hope you O sooner and we can be TWW buddies too! Fx.

fluffy thats lovely to hear. it is amazing to watch him/her on the screen and to think that is happening in you. will you be staying team yellow? glad you feeling much better too.

Alligator sorry about AF but its a good sign that your body is "normal" again so you can ttc again. are you temping? i forgot. its so hard to not think about where you would have been and where you are now. i have 2 angels in heaven, one which would have been born last month so yeah you never forget. you learn to carry it with you and let it make you a stronger person. my ink really helps me with this part. i always feel like im carrying my angels with me, day and night. just take it a day at a time and remind yourself every single day, it was not your fault and you will have your dream baby.

Sheece, glad you feeling better. i was off work for 3 days last week too. it was so good to be a home body.

Thank you, whimsical. I am very hopeful that I'll be pregnant with my rainbow soon...and I know once I am, the time it took won't seem so bad, but right now it seems like everyday lasts forever, and each month is just another reminder of the loss. I am considering getting a tattoo, some hearts or something small, to remind me of my little angel...I really do believe our baby is in heaven, watching over us, and craddling our rainbow until he/she is ready to join us. I just hope that's sooner, rather than later.

Sheece, hoping you grow a big fat eggy or two this cycle and this is it for you!

Whimsical, we want to find out the gender. We're going for a prenatal scan and blood test (like the Harmony test, just a different brand) next week and while the point of the test is to check for Down Syndrome, you also get to find out the gender. The take the blood that day and then it takes about a week to come back. They also do an in-depth scan to check if all the organs look fine and such, I'm a little nervous about that tbh...

@Alligator
I think that's a lovely way to think about it It's like your future baby will have an older brother or sister who was watching over him/her in heaven already. It completely depends on what you believe of course, but if you do, then you will get to meet your angel baby in heaven one day in the far future when your time here is up.

Exactly fluffy! I know and respect that everyone has different beliefs, but I truly do believe that I will meet my baby one day, just not on this earth. Which makes me sad but it does bring me some level of comfort.

I had a dream a couple days after the miscarriage that my aunt (who passed away almost 10 years ago and with whom I was very close) was in heaven and was welcoming my baby with open arms, and I felt/knew that she would take care of her (the baby was a her in my dream, I always felt like it was a her) until I could. That was so comforting and peaceful.

alligator thats a lovely dream. i do believe all angel babies are watching over us and their siblings. its like i can never say this is my first baby, this is my 3rd. just that the other 2 never got to be with me and are in a much better place. small steps though hun. it will be worth it and you will get your rainbow.

fluffy, oh that full blood work scared me too but you will be glad you have done it and the results wont matter much because you want this baby. its so exciting to find out the sex. makes things more real than ever before.

Sheece, we shall do a follie dance for you so you get more than once juicy follie and who knows, maybe twins too.

We had the in depth scan and everything looks great, so the doctor said the chances that the blood results would show anything negative are less than 1% We saw every detail of little pea for over an hour, it was amazing! We should have the blood test results towards the end of next week and then also find out the sex. So, soooo relieved that everything is looking great with little pea now and I'm already 13+2 today ^^

I also told my professor today, I was so so nervous. To my total surprise, he revealed he is actually a father of four and congratulated me and thanked me for my trust in telling him I'm so relieved!!!!! I was sure he'd be angry and let me know there is no future in this institute for me since I decided to have a child at such a bad time (as a postdoc, because waiting until you're in your late 30s/early 40s is a grand idea fertility wise...). But no, he was so nice about it! I almost cried with relief X)

@Sheece
I'm following your journal still and I'm sure you have discussed things with your doctors, but just in case this is new information to you: My doctor told me that some women respond really well to gonal, some respond really well to clomid and they don't really know why. So maybe if the gonal isn't working so well for you, you could try clomid/sth else next time? Obviously I'm not a doctor, but my impression was that changing what you take to stimulate the follicles can make even more of a difference than increasing the dosage.

How is everyone else doing?
