Well, sorry for the false alarm. Only got that one clear faint BFP. BFNs since then. I thought DH had a little too much for Easter dinner and are chances weren’t great this month. I was elated thinking we got pregnant anyway. I’m thinking of taking this month off from temping. Just so i can sleep in and stress less...we won’t stop “trying” but maybe just help me relax. I see a high risk doc on Thursday. It will be good to have a plan in place for when we do get pregnant again. I did get positive results from a fertility specialist- good follicle counts, 13 follicles that were maturing this month. And I’m definitely ovulating. All positive and hopeful signs.

Sorry about that elmum
Good luck!

Mine are still BFN too. AF due today. I'm also not going to temp next month.. I'm finding it a bit stressful.

Sorry to see you update Elmum.

Hope your appointment goes well on Thursday. Glad you're getting a plan in place, I felt much better once I had a plan for a new pregnancy and new what I needed to do.

Loves - good to hear from you. I am doing well and in the home stretch of this pregnancy. I am hoping for a few more days to get some stuff done and then baby is welcome to enter this world whenever he or she would like. I have gestational diabetes so they wonít let me go past 40 weeks, but I donít think Iíll make it that far anyway.

How have you been?

Hi Mom15! You're so close to the end now. Seems to have gone past so quickly (probably less so for you though!) Sorry to hear about the GD. Did you have it with your DS?

I'm doing okay, it's a stressful high risk pregnancy though. I'm 16 weeks today, we had a major panic last week as I went for my weekly scan and found my cervix had funneled and shortened, in 7 days it dropped from 42.2mm to 10mm! They get concerned with a measurement of 25mm. All the Dr's were shocked at how quickly, severely and early it had occurred. I was immediately diagnosed with cervical incompetence and sent to another hospital and had a stitch put in 4 hours later. They're now pretty confident it's the trigger for us losing Alexander. They're slightly perplexed as to how i've developed it as I carried Amelie to term with no issues, but it seems i'm one of unlucky few who develop complications following a d&c. I'm now a week post and so far everything is stable, cervix measured 12mm yesterday and the funnel is smaller, so at the moment Dr is happy. I'm to get lots of rest and I've been signed off work until i'm 24 weeks which 18th July.

I'm so lucky for the Rainbow Clinic. Without them I wouldn't have been having weekly checks and it wouldn't have been uncovered until it was too late.

Loves - I am so sorry! And I am so glad they caught it this time. I remember they were saying last time you went into labor because of an infection. I wonder if that was secondary meaning you only had that because you dilated/effaced early?
July doesnít seem that far away, but I am sure it feels like a lifetime away. And every pinch you feel has you heart racing. I pray that the Cerclage will do its job and all will be well in the end. Itís such a cruel thing to deal with. Keep your feet up!

I did not have GD either DS so it was a bit surprising. Even my doctor was surprised as I am not overweight, it doesnít run in my family, I donít have pcos. So I donít have any of the typical risk factors. I try hard not to complain. I am having a healthy pregnancy and baby otherwise and thatís so much to be thankful for.

Iíll be checking in with you now and then to see how you are!

How scary loves! I am so glad they caught that. Pregnancy is so precarious at times, it seems.

For me, similar to Mom15...just counting the days (although she has less to count than me haha). Nearing the end of pregnancy and it's getting bittersweet. I am physically getting ready to be done, but I am trying to cherish the kicks and bumps from my girl and having her all to myself. And we aren't READY at all haha. So much more to do! My shower is not this weekend but next weekend and I'm excited for it, also nervous, I hope there's a good amount of people there.
