Yup, I did. Bit nervous about trying in a couple months. Scared to death it'll all happen again.

Cute idea

My age: 38
OH/DH age: 39
Any children: DD-16 DD-5
Any Pets: two chihuahuas
Activities: Gardening, garage sales, exercising & spending time with my family.
Reason for WTT until September: I wanted to lose weight ( 10lbs to go until my pregnancy goal weight) I have a couple health issues and wanted to get the (all clear) from my dr's. Our oldest daughter has Down Syndrome so, it always gives us something to be nervous about. I have a preconception appt tomorrow... FX for good news!!!

Thank you She is the sweetest person I know and also loves to give hugs

We had genetic counseling after she was born. We were told that there was a 99.95% chance it would not happen again. I was 22yrs old then. So being 38 now it still makes me a bit nervous.
My other concern is pre-eclampsia. I had it with both of my pregnancies and it was pretty bad. The 1st time I was induced at 38 weeks. And with my second I was still induced at 38 weeks to avoid it and ended up getting it 3days after delivery. Very scary.

I hate that you're still having problems, Cath. I know it's a rough way! I had two injections, two weeks apart. Took three weeks for my numbers to go from 89 at the highest to 0. Doctor says we can start trying again in September. I'm downing the folic in extra amounts, guzzling the organic raspberry leaf tea to get my uterus in prime condition, and just generally keeping my fingers crossed. And praying I don't have another ectopic!!

Yup, you're right. Miscarriage is bad anyway you count it, but the ectopic scared me to death. I felt like I was a ticking time bomb, ready to rupture at any moment, especially when my OB said he had some one rupture whose hcg was at 10. Sure didn't help matters any!

When we start trying will depend how long this last cycle is. Last cycle was 34 days, five days longer than I usually go. What I can figure is that we'll start TTC around Sept. 8-13. Subject to change, of course. lol

I was scared to death of intimacy before hitting 0 after he told me he had a rupture patient at 10hcg. lol I didn't even lift anything heavier than a mop for weeks on end. lol

I actually had my first bleed on June 20 and the cycle lasted 34 days. I'm now on my second full cycle after mtx.

And you asked if I'm excited. Oddly enough I was having doubts last night about whether we should have another. I don't know what to make of it. Maybe the ectopic affected me more than I thought.
