Sorry about AF Lola. I hope that it at least toned down pain-wise.

Wow...it sure has been quiet on here. I hope everyone is well. Just thought I'd pop in and offer an update. I hope you ladies will do the same. I think of all of you often and miss having our regular chats. In the interest of full disclosure, I copied this post from another thread but it is too much to type all over again.

DW and I are plugging right along. Hopefully AF will show up in the next week or so and that gets us 1 cycle closer to being able to try again. I have to say, I really didn't recognize how much of my time and thought was devoted to TTC. Having this break has allowed me to realize that I was seriously neglecting other things like my own fitness and well being in the interest of trying. I have had an opportunity to get myself back on track and realize that all of the things I was doing in the name of saving for the baby (cutting out supplements for myself stopping nutrisystem, and making myself a priority) were really hurting both of our best interests. I was feeling poorly, missing hours at work and that doesn't help anyone. The loss and recovery process have helped me to realize that in order to be the best Mommy I can be I have to take care of myself first. So I am taking all supplements recommended by my neurologist and started nutrisystem again. I even made changes to our insurance policies and tried to protect us in the event I require another surgery (which is pretty much and issue of WHEN not IF). I have also been able to schedule dental work for DW that we have been putting off because she has anxiety and must take meds before the dentist that don't mesh with TTC. All in all we are both trying to make the loss as positive and we possibly can to be as ready for our forever baby and be the best Mommies we can be.

Leah, it sounds like you are doing really well all things considered

I'm still sorry you had to go through this, but you prove what amazing parents you will be as you have such strength

Hi ladies!

I hope everyone is well. Things here are great and getting better by the minute. DW has her post op appointment on Tuesday and will FINALLY be off of pelvic rest (poor baby) Then we wait for AF which I can assure you is due any moment because she is her usual PMSing brutish self. and we are back on board the TTC express. We will be temping and so on starting CD 1 but no inseminations until the following cycle. Thats oh though because we will be too busy packing and moving, unsettling and hosting a party because.....we just got our first HOUSE!!!! We are obviously over the moon. and can't wait. It has been a really weird few months with all of the rollercoaster of emotions but I firmly believe that for everything there is a season. I will not allow the season of loss over shadow the season of such awesomeness! We felt our sorrow and it was deep and real but this joy is entitled to being equally as important. So ladies...*cheers* to a year of new beginings and a lifetime of happily ever after!
