wantingbubba7 - Good luck hun, lots of baby dust!
I know you're not holding your breath but I have a friend that did IVF with her first born (baby group from my DD) and she's currently around halfway pregnant with her surprise NTNP baby so you never know.

karoolia - I really am at peace with it, it just feels right for us in the moment but never say never haha. We're undecided and for a long time I wasn't okay with that but now I am and I'm happy about it because now I can just enjoy watching my kids grow up without worrying about if our family is complete or not because I no longer care if it's complete or not. Whatever is meant to happen will.
Also I'm touched that you value my advice/experiences! I strive to do my best to help new moms have an easier time than I did.

Tara - I'm glad that you're enjoying your summer! I can't wait for DH to get off work for the summer, I think his last day is the 12th.

How are you ladies doing?

I am 19 days out from my D&C and my pregnancy tests have finally gotten very light, still a line though (grumble). I did convince DH to ntnp again this month. I figure if my body isn't ready it won't happen. We still won't be actively trying until June though or whenever my next cycle starts. I still don't trust any tests or signs right now with my body still being confused after the miscarriage so I figure there isn't much point in charting.

I'm feeling a bit better about life. Still very sad about everything we have gone through recently, but coping better. DH thinks I should see a counselor so that I have someone neutral to talk to. I don't really want to as I have had bad experiences in the past trying to talk to someone, but it might be a good idea. I'm thinking I might make an appointment and see what happens.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this already, but we also are planning to get a kitten. We can never replace the kitty we lost, but our house feels so empty right now. The kitten was born April 26th so can't leave it's mother until July 4th, but I am very excited to have a new little kitten to love. I feel like there are always animals out there that need a loving home and if I can provide that I want to.

Good luck wanting! You are so close to TTC #2! I hope it all goes smoothly for you!

Glad you are feeling a little better, I do not have experiences of miscarriages but I am sure you will have good and bad days and it may be useful for you to speak to someone, you won't be losing anything by getting an appointment and seeing how it goes.

We are still hoping to start ttc soon however I am still waiting for my biopsies to come back to confirm if I have celiac or not. I had a blood test to check b12, folate, iron and thyroid levels and all ok thankfully so I'm hoping once I get results and get ok from docs we can ttc soon.

That's great that you are getting a kitten, we have a 6 year old cat that we have had since he was 10 weeks old. He is my fur baby. Animals are so loving and I find can really cheer you up when you are feeling a little down xx

Hey All,

Kalon sounds like you reached a decision that suits you! Thanks for staying around to keep things updated!

Karoolia- I hope you're doing ok. What a hard few months for you. I'm all for therapy and hopefully you'll find someone who suits you and you have a better experience this time.

Just wanted to update for me. Had my scan yesterday and I am 8weeks5- all looked great and strong heartbeat. My due date got moved one day to the 15th of December

Hi amotherslove! Sounds like you have an exciting fall coming up!

How far along are you in nursing school? I'm going back to school in the fall myself, but it is all online so probably a lot more flexible than your schedule! I know nursing school can be very demanding. Very worth it though. My husband is a doctor and he says the hospitals would fall apart if it weren't for the nurses.
