first cycle after stillbirth...
Mon, 04-26-2010 - 10:32am

Hi, this is my first cycle after my son was stillborn at 35 weeks in March. Yes, we are trying, so I started doing bbt's as soon as I stopped bleeding. I've had 2 miscarriages in the past, and both times af didn't come back on her own, and after the first miscarriage, I also wasn't O'ing on my own... so I'm pretty skeptical - my doc and FF agree about the start of af (I wasn't so sure because it was so light) then I was cramping and had light spotting on friday and had temp spike on sat, so I was thinking maybe... well FF says I O'd on Friday. My questions are - does anyone agree - I haven't charted in 10 years, so my skills are not up to par. I'm not checking cm until next cycle, although the spotting on friday did seem more like possibly red tinged mucous (sorry). Dh as been out of state since cd10, so last bd was on cd8 and cd9 - if I o'd on cd12... anyone think we have a chance this cycle????? I'm holding out hope :)
So here I sit 3dpo and all I'm thinking about is can I test yet lol - I keep telling myself HELL NO!!! not yet dummy :)

(hope I did this link correctly)


We will miss you forever and love you for always. In loving memory of Landon Paul Rodgers 3/26/10 our precious son.

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet son and your miscarriages. It is a pain no parent should ever know, yet sadly there are so many of us, myself included that do.

I saw today's temp dropped down a bit. I'm crossing my fingers it comes back up. After my daughter was born I also had a cycle that was very very wonky. It felt like insult to injury to deal with her loss as well as difficulty conceiving her sibling.

Keeping you in my thoughts,

Torie...I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine how difficult it is to lose a baby, especially one that you have carried nearly full term. Sending lots of hugs your way and I hope you get your BFP soon.
