Wow you ladies have this down to a science. I never had luck with temping probably because I'd always forget to do it before I started moving around in the morning. However I hope your temps are all good news and that you ladies get a BFP this cycle!!!

My spotting is heavier now and redder so likely AF now. No shock though. I am super excited for my appointment but a bit nervous. I had prepared myself for May so now I have to get my head around possibly earlier. I have a feeling I'm going to be told I need to lose weight though since I've put on quite a bit since TTC. But I'm working on it. Plus I have no idea how we are going to pay for everything so I'm really curious to talk to the financial people. I know they offer packages if you qualify. It's a bit stressful though and it's annoying insurance won't cover anything.

5 DPO here and what's with my temps? Anyone know anything about almost flat line temps? Not experienced this before and it's bugging me, why isn't anything happening?!

Bronte - is your appointment Tuesday? I hope you manage to sort something out financially. It seems so wrong that TTC can be ridiculously expensive. As if it isn't hard enough already without that kind of stress.

How is everyone?

Happy Easter ladies, for those that celebrate.

Hope everyone is doing alright. Several of you should be testing soon so I'm really excited to see results.

Mrs. U - I don't know much about temps. As mentioned mine were always all over the place but I was super bad about not testing right away in the morning. Hopefully someone else has a good answer to help.

My appointment is Tuesday. I'm super excited but nervous. It is frustrating that finances have to play a part of it. Luckily my parents have offered to loan us some but it's still overwhelming. Plus there's lots of financing options to choose from and it feels like gambling. And given my luck with gambling, we are likely to be the ones to pay way over and not end up with a kid. Grrr. It's stressful and I haven't even talked to the doctor yet.

A few ladies have said they had flat line temps with their bfps so that's good. Not that I think I am but it's good to know it doesn't mean the opposite! I keep waking up at 5am needing the loo so I've been taking it then before I get out of bed. Wondering if that's why they are on the low side. I feel pretty much out this cycle anyway. I've been in such a grump the past couple of days. It occurred to me the other day that we've been on the TTC journey 7 months next month. Now I know that's nothing to some people, and I feel a bit bad about moaning about it, but now I feel like we're back a square one. Back at the beginning of those 6/7 months. Don't know if I can do it all again, I'm exhausted. But I guess I'm going to anyway.

Bronte - try to not stress yourself out too much. I hope things are clearer and you feel happier once you've discussed the finances as well as everything else. Think positive too! I'm sure you will get your baby soon. It's a big step so I'm sure it's normal to feel nervous, but it's the right step. Xx

Oh, then that could definitely be promising Mrs. U. good luck!!! No matter how long you have been trying for it's still frustrating and exhausting at every stage. The waiting is horrible. Hang in there!

Thanks for the encouraging words too!

Hi all! New here!


Hi everyone. I am sorry to be joining this and that this group even has to exist. Loss is hard!

A little about me: Me (28) DH (30), together since 2006- married 2014. Started TTC #1 June 2015. BFP Sept 2015. MMC November 4th 2015 (D&C)

Took a small break around the holidays and really started trying again in January.

Happened to have my yearly last month around ovulation, so my OB did a follicle scan. Tri layer lining with a 24mm follicle. She said it was perfect for ovulation and implantation yet here I am... on to the next month . I had an extremely short period this month (3 days) so I am now cycle day 4.

It's getting to be a struggle and I'm starting to think something is wrong... Sorry to hear about all your losses and I am praying for major baby dust to all!

Melissa

Welcome to the group, Melissa. So sorry to hear about your loss. This process is definitely hard and it's easy to think something is wrong. But it can take some time for everything to even out after a miscarriage, so try not to worry at all yet (easier said then done, I know). Good luck to you!

Welcome Melissa! While it is a very sad thing that brings us all together, I'm glad we can all gather here to find and offer support. I'm so sorry for your loss. It took me 6 cycles to get my first little baby that we lost. It can be perfectly normal fir it to take that long or longer. There's so much chance involved and the human reproductive system with a 20% chance each cycle gets a solid F. I know that sinking feeling you're getting though. I had it then and have it now as I near the end of our first cycle back. My ob seems unconcerned. I hope for your sake that nothing is wrong and this cycle is the lucky one

To everyone - I'm so sorry I've been MIA recently. Yesterday was just a really tough day for me. I'm sure you all have them and understand. I will be sure to update you all when I test later this week.

Bronte - So much love your way!!! I hope you walk away from your appointment tomorrow armed with new information and hopeful for the future

MrsU - I started this journey 8 months ago. I'm right there with you. We are in this together, and I can't wait for the time that we can both share a photo of our precious babies.

Welcome Melissa yeah it is awful that this place needs to exist, but like the others say, we all understand what each other is going through and can offer support. I think I would feel very alone without it. Sorry things are so frustrating. The waiting around for things to happen feels like a lifetime however long it is. I also understand about fearing something is wrong. When we had the MMC everyone said 'the positive to take from this is that you can both conceive' I try to see it like that but then the doubt creeps in. We can but it didn't last very long so..... It's a vicious circle.

Bronte - good luck with your appointment today! Can't wait to hear about it. Xx

Leson - thanks love. Feeling a bit better today. For some reason both DH and I were down about it all yesterday. Was good to talk it through with him. Hope you're ok

AFM 7dpo - not much to report. Usual cramping, bbs don't hurt (one of my bfp signs) but my skin is good (I broke out badly with the bfp) oh and my temps are so lazy!! It's making me laugh now. Convinced it hasn't happened but I still be testing fri/sat, that is if my ICs turn up, flippin bank holiday isn't it!

It is sad there has to be a group like this. However, I suffered in silence and by myself for many years and wished I would have joined something like this along time ago. So kudos to you ladies!!

Unless you have someone to talk to that has been through something similar it can be a challenge. It's great that we can support each other. Not that many people in my life knew about my husband and I's ectopic, but the ones that did weren't incredibly supportive. Many of them tried to be sympathetic with words like, "at least you weren't further along." Grrrr. I can't even begin to imagine how hard it would have been if I was further along and had to deal with a stillborn birth or a death after the child was born. However, hearing that makes you feel like what you experienced wasn't still painful and it is. So much!! You are not only grieving the loss of a child (granted a very tiny one, but still something very special and important to you), the "what ifs" of what that child would have been, the uncertainty of your future fertility, and sometimes the anger of your body letting you down or any number of other things. That pain is very real and shouldn't be diminished by anyone, even yourself.
