Hi there I wonder if I can join this forum I have read from page one all the way through to this page - it took me a while!!!
I feel like I know you all, anyway this is the very first time I have ever posted in a forum and I have butterflies doing this.
A bit about us I am 40 hubby is 32 we got married in 2010 and tried for a baby straight away - we fell pregnant last year and unfortunately we lost it 6 weeks later in June. We have been trying since and no luck so I bought a CBFM quite a few months ago and also started temping but nothing since.
I have two boys from a previous marriage but it would be lovely to have one with my new husband.
You ladies all seem to support each other and seem such a nice caring thread to join - so please may I join you?
Of course!!! Welcome welcome I'm somewhat new to the group myself, but this is just a great great group of ladies!!
Welcome Garfie -we sure are a sisterhood here. You've come to the right forum
Smyth: I couldn't WAIT to get home to check on you! Hold on little bean!
Chicky: URGH! What a day! Hang on there. And yes, dust off that sexy lingerie!
AFM: I am waiting on my first AF since my MC. My boobs are sore and I think that means I may have ovulated. I am going in tomorrow to check progesterone and to check that my HCG levels are at zero. We dtd once (I'm still healing up) and I realized it was right around ovulation could be (or just after)... whoops!
I really hope that I have ovulated because I am SO SCARED of what my cycle will be like with only one ovary and tube... Apparently you can only tell with time as your next few cycles unfold... This is such a scary journey.
A friend revealed she's 15 weeks pregnant today. I was super relieved that my reaction to her was joy. Sometimes I just feel sad but I am honestly happy for her. I think I'm starting to see my friend's babies as gifts to me too...
Lots of love to you all!
I am following each one of you carefully so keep the news coming
Hi Smyth, Hopeful and Daisy thanks for the HUGE welcome, you are right about this being a great site as I said before I have read all your postings!
I was surprised when I finally logged in how colourful this site was with all your tickers and pictures etc (I will have to learn how to do this!)
Good luck to all the ladies with BFPS and good luck to all of us who are still not quite there yet.
AFM - I am on cd4 once again armed with my monitor, opk's, vitamin B6, Folic Acid and now grapefruit juice (thanks ladies). I also have to go back to the docs for more blood tests to check even if I'm ovulating as the last test was borderline ovulation (only found that out recently) So may be to late for me anyway???
Yeah and add one more thing into the mix - why not eh? I also have Endometriosis. Jeez this ttc is such a long long long journey and I am so glad I have found you all to share it with.
Smythdm - im feeling good things for you. any update? i remember my hcg was trebbling and that concern the doctor!!! i truly think as long as its going up thats all thats important, the rest just works out. I am in a Karma like state now - we can have soooo many medical intervention but once your bean snuggles in its in Gods hands, and you will be fine.
Daisy - THIS IS IT!!!! i think you will be a january 2013 mum no problems. Please try not to stress, how about a few days away / off work before that ball starts rolling so you gus can just enjoy the peace together and get ready mentally?
I'll update you guys ASAP - went in for bloodwork this AM. I'm surprisingly better today - I figure that whatever is happening with the pregnancy/my beta levels is already happening and I can't do anything about it. MY HPTs are getting darker, so thats a good sign. If it wasn't meant to be, its not meant to be and thats ok, I'm glad I found out early and had time to prepare myself. Happy do you remember your HCG levels at all?
Thanks happy. We are going on vacation in 10 days, so I'll have a week off to prepare which is nice. Also doing a long protocol, so I'll be taking bcp for three weeks. Actual IVF procedure won't be until the end of may. I hope you are right and a beam is snuggling in as we speak, but for some reason I feel like I'm going to need IVF.
Smyth, can't wait to hear your results but I'm sure the numbers will be fine.
Garfie, I'm sorry this is such a long journey and about the endo. Have you considered fertility treatments at all?
I know this probably isn't the place to do it, but I am so sad... . Another one of my friends has announced her pregnancy after her first month of trying... I want to be happy for her, but I can't. I just keep wondering if it will ever be our turn...one of my other friends has just been told she will never have children naturally with her husband as his sperm count is so low... Icsi will be perfect for them, but she is not yet heavy enough... I just worry that we will never be able to have our own family, naturally or otherwise..
