I've rung the hospital to see if they want to placenta, they said they'll take it if we want them to. So once hubby is home I'm taking it down, I figure if baby can put a smile on our faces I'd love for cupcake to go and help as many others as possible. If they can't tell me their results or the cause thats fine, as long as it helps in the long run
Thats a great thing to do. I donated mine when they did my d&c. It was of no use to my lil angel anymore. So why not try & help someone else. Just stay positive tanzi. I know its hard, but you've got all the support in the world.
how is everyone today? I had no idea you could donate the placenta...think that is a really strong thing to do
Angel I can't believe people actually told you you were being bitter...you sound like you have an amazing attitude to all of this and you've been through so much. Just shows how discompassionate people can be.
Tweak do you know the title of the book you mentioned?
Hi Smiler82 - how are you today? nearly ready for xmas?
I wasn't sure if the hospital would take it but if they did I wanted to know if they'll be in touch with results OR if I'll never hear anything again, they told me the latter. Either way I'm glad I'm not left in limbo with that thought.
Hubby has been working from home today so I've only had about 5 cries, a personal best for me this week!
Smiler - here's the amazon link Miscarriage: Women Sharing From The Heart I haven't gotten it yet, but I'm thinking about it. It's $10 for my Kindle app, so I've been putting it off, even though it's not much.
Tanzi - BIG HUGS I remember what it's like after a m/c. The up and down roller coaster. The day after my D&C I was fine, barely cried. But the next day? I think I cried just about all day. I hope you can feel better soon
Thanks tweak, I think the bleeding is subsiding, no major clots have come out and I'm not really filling my pads now, so I guess thats progress. I'm also thinking about food and sex again, so this could be my body going back to the norm. xxx
I'm glad the bleeding is subsiding! I so hope it's your body getting back to the norm.
Eh, I'm okay. Had a half day at work, so went and met DH for lunch since he's spending another late day at work. Won't get out till 9:30, and I told him we need to BD! Temp plummeted this morning, so I want to get some BDing in!
hi gaowhywhy - my story of the worst week of my life is near the top of this thread, feel free for a read. the short version goes like this:
14+ months TTC, had irregular cycles, went for tonnes of appointments, blood tests, referred to a gynecologist who found en endometrioma on my left ovary (lining from the uterus forming on other parts), I was prescribed clomid, the 2nd round worked but lost baby on tuesday at 8 weeks 2 days. My whole world has just fallen apart.
Whats your story honey? I see it shows Pregnant on your posts but I suspect that probably isn't the case currently? xxxx
thanks for the link Tweak, I may have to get that. It's strange, I remember after my losses I really wanted to read a fiction book that dealt with miscarriage but there aren't any out there. Not sure why I felt like that, I guess because I'm a book worm. But I can see why you might be putting it off, it isn't going to be exactly a happy read is it. I'm not religious but I found this book called When Bad things Happen to Good People; it's written by a rabbi and some parts I found quite comforting and also helped me to understand other people's reactions to these bad things that happen to us.
Do you think it's a pre-ov dip Tweak? I hope so! Me and DH are just really going to go for it this cycle. I never know when I'm going to ov and sometimes we miss it. Determined not to let that happen this cycle.
Tanzi - glad the bleeding is starting to slow down. I remember the emotional rollercoaster in the immediate weeks after as well, it is tiring. I still have days where I cry though, what everyone was saying earlier about it changing you is so true. It gets easier to live with but you never forget.
