Dear Margie,

When I read your post, I just cried. Thank you for thinking of me. The truth is, I am having a very hard time. Thank you for being here for me.

Mary: Wish there was more I could do. I know m/c is different for each of us...but it's difficult for all of us who want so badly to have a child. I still think about my baby Marc (I found it easier to name the baby...hope you don't think that's odd...) I figure I have an angel waiting for me in heaven someday...remember to take it slow.

Take good care...

Dear Margie,

Thanks so much for thinking of me!

I was doing OK and working on my program with my naturapath, until this weekend when I went to visit my sister. Her step daughter from her first marriage (who is 40) is pregnant with the exact same due date as myself and she was there at my sister's house with a big belly. (Her sister was there too who is a few years younger and is also pregnant with her second child.) I was really happy for her (she also has 2 other children) but hearing when her due date was and seeing her belly, I had to run to another room and have spent the last few days crying. It sometimes feels like I am being tortured by all these other women in my life who are pregnant and glowing? I keep thinking, when am I going to give birth finally?.

Anyway, thanks again for thinking of me. I am working on getting really healthy and over my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I also have to have dental surgery to save a tooth, an added expense I wasn't counting on.

I appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers. I need a lot of prayers to bring in $$ to be able to afford to consult with Dr. Beer. I am working on saving money and I will try to conceive again either September or October hopefully with his help. I need both $$ vibes as well as healthy vibes and baby dust!!

thanks again

Jadu: I can sooo relate to how you are feeling. My dh and I have been ttc for 6 years and I had one m/c in May, 2003. Our baby's due date was 12/24/03. My SIL just announced she is pregnant and her due date is 12/24/04...I mean, what are the chances? My other SIL just gave birth to twins in May...which now leaves me as the only one on either side of the family childless...and there are pregnant bellies every where!! Some times it's just too much. I think I've cried more in the last 2 years than in my other 39 years of life.

I pray you will soon have your session with Dr. Beer and I look forward to the post announcing the arrival of your little one!! Sending you prayers and +++ vibes and Healthy vibes and $$$ vibes....take good care.

Hi Margie,

Wow. Well, my due date was very close to yours 12/25. What a strange coincidence. Yes, these kinds of things are very strange. A friend of mine suggested that maybe I could look at my situation a little differently. She said that all these pregnant women everywhere could also be looked at as an encouragement as well as a positive sign of abundance for everyone.

I do feel positive most of the time these days, its just that sometimes it really hits me and I have such a longing to hold a baby of my own. I realize that it is oh so important to be happy and positive with oneself. The chances of getting pregnant decrease when one is really unhappy and depressed, also one's health suffers under those conditions too. So staying positive and focused is paramount.

At least I feel like I know a heck of a lot more now about increasing my chances of carrying to term, especially having found these boards and hearing from a wonderful, special group of women.

I appreciate your kind words. I am also looking forward to your news of a baby on the way. Hey, maybe we'll both have a similar due date again! wouldn't that be wild?

best to you

Hi Jadu,

Just wanted to check in with you and say hello!! You are so right about staying positive, it is so important, yet, sometimes so difficult!!

I went to a baby shower on Sunday and left feeling so blue... kind of a "why not me?" feeling. But I'm realizing that I'm doing everything possible that I can and I just have to trust my body and have faith no matter what happens (and let myself feel "blue" every now and then if I need to)....

Hope you are well. Keep those positive vibes coming!!++++++++++++++++++

take care,

Linda

Jadu: Yep...I agree with you. Staying positive is the key. It's easier some days than others...

I would love to share a due date with you again...let's hope!! Take good care. (Sorry to type such a quick note, but my dh needs the computer for work...got to go...)
