Jean, sorry to hear this is not your month, but don't give up hope for the next cycle.

Thank you, both. I will have to wait and see what happens Tuesday.

Hi Jean,

I missed your post until now, and since it is now Tuesday, how are you? I hope things turned out better than you were expecting.

I am not a big fan of D&C's, although they are necessary at times. I have heard it said before that they can be quite helpful, but unfortunately I know that they can also be detrimental. I don't think they would cause a problem in the initial implantation though. I had one several years ago, and found that it completely messed up my cycle. Now my cycle had been pretty much non-existent until just over a year before that when I lost my one ovary. I was thrilled to have normal cycles at last, and even more thrilled at my first pregnancy without intervention. However, they 'thought' it was a molar pregnancy and so the D&C. It wasn't, but a year later my cycles still had not resumed proper function, and didn't until after my next child was born. When I knew I had lost my last baby, I chose to wait it out rather than put my chances at risk again. The process was difficult but also brought a lot more healing in the end. I also have a friend who had more serious problems from a D&C, but I won't go into detail here.

It does just take longer once you hit 40, very frustrating but unfortunately true. I doubt the D&C has much to do with anything though, they don't usually, so don't worry about it. I know it is easier said than done, but the only thing you really do is to do what you can to be healthy and then just relax and see what happens. It is so hard, I know, but try to be patient and just take it one day at a time. (((((Hugs)))))

Michelle,


Thank you for your reply. I am so sorry for your loss. I am doing well, no cramps and no AF! I couldn't wait and just did a preg test, at 6 PM,

Oh, Jean, I do hope that the FMU gives you a BFP! I know the disappointment of those ugly BFNs, and I seem to be getting even worse with waiting! Lol! I really am doing okay with my losses, although it maybe didn't sound like it in my post, sorry about that. I have my moments of course, but for the most part I am doing well. I just hope that you get a sticky little bean very soon. :-)

Thanks again, Michelle. It was negative this morning. So either I O'ed later than I thought or I didn't at all. Now I wish

Oh rats. Temping is a pain, but worth it at times like this. Hopefully it is just a delayed positive, hang in there.

Sorry to hear that, but I suppose it is better than waiting and not knowing. Well, only sort of. Hopefully next month will be more successful for you. (((Hugs)))
