hello there ladies,



this is just a brief update for though's who are following :)
for though's who are not i'l just fill you in a little bit.
i'm TTC my first baby, so far i have come on a long journey of tears haven't had a happy moment on this TTC journey, i have had 3 miscarriages and a suspected 4th with 3 chemical pregnancies, my first 2 pregnancies were actually mild in symptoms, but never really "knew" till the very last moment. my 3rd pregnancy was actually the hardest to deal with purely because of the day that i miscarried, my 3rd is also the most remembered pregnancy and wish to get a tattoo to remember him/her for the rest of my life...
now you know my past TTC journey in a brief way :)



so as some of you know that i was gonna get some blood work done, well today was the day i had it done, cant believe how much blood they took :shock:



i get the results in a week :) i am actually really nervous because i am scared of what might be wrong, i keep thinking i wont have a kid ect ect, its gotten quite depressing at times :( but you know i will be fine :)



hope you all have a nice day/evening/night where ever you may be :)

I'm sorry for all of your losses. I'm getting some blood work done as well since we've been trying with no luck. I have to wait for AF to arrive because they want it done a certain times to get the best results. I have to do the first set between day 1 and day 7 and my second set on CD21. Can't wait for AF to get here. Will be excited to see her so I can go get them done. I hope your results come back good and you can get your BFP and healthy rainbow soon!! GL and lots of baby dust to you and sticky dust for when you get that BFP!!

Since Jan. 2012. We miscarried Dec. 29, 2011. We started as soon as I stopped bleeding from the miscarriage. I was 16 weeks. They told me between CD1 and 7 and of course the 21. So come on AF so I can do this already. It's bad enough DH has to wait to do his for when he's off because the lab only does it between 8-12 and he goes to work for 7 so we have to wait til next monday which isn't too far. He has a couple more days to BD lol. My right side is getting uncomfortable right now. Don't know if it has anything to do with the prenatal I took since I started them back today or what. I took an opk but it was negative. Maybe urine was too concentrated. I will try again in about an hour.

I went through the blood work too, pain in the neck! I forget exactly when the Dr had me get them but I have PCOS. This pregnancy was a total surprise, my Dr had said I would need meds. Surprise!!! :D

I actually just found out this past August I have PCOS. I have two kids now and of course our angel. We only ttc'd for 2 months using the every other night method. After losing him we've been trying with no results. Don't know if something is wrong with DH's soldiers or what but I can't wait to get his tests done. I went 5 months with normal cycles and ovulating and still nothing.

So we're pretty much in the same boat except you've been trying a bit longer. It sucks having unexplained infertililty specially when I've had two kids before which were complete surprises and a third (my angel) who only took two months of trying. I wish it were easier. Maybe we aught to just stop trying and say we don't want a baby and it might happen.

Hopefully your blood work will tell the Dr's something that they can work with and help you so that you can carry a healthy baby. I too have been told to get some blood work but its so scary taking that step I havent done it yet. Good luck and keep us updated on your results :)

Yea I understand what you mean. We can't even seem to get the egg fertilized. So I'm not sure if my eggs are not mature when I ovulate or if his sperm just isn't making it to my egg. We've tried every other night, every two nights, and even going three nights before ovulation then waiting until I get my first positive opk and doing it then. Still nothing. Can't wait to get his results back. That way I'll know if it's anything to do with him. If he's fine that will be one less thing to stress me out. That'll mean it's me but at least we can figure out what to do with me. Hoping my vitex works when I get it. It should be in by next week.
