Ok, here's the scoop. Our last m/c was this past Feb (our 3rd within 13 months). The last baby had trisomy 22, the two babies before that died of unknown causes. My OB suggested I use progesterone suppositories about 3-6 days post O. The past 2 cycles, I've used the prog...to no avail....no pg yet (although I MAY have had a possible chem pg last month...but not sure).

This next cycle, I'm taking a TTC break, because if by some miracle I DO end up getting pg, I'm afraid I'll either have bad morning sickness (which would be a good thing for me) or I'll be stressed out and worried about being 6 weeks pg and afraid of losing it....all this while going on a road trip at the end of June for 2 weeks.

Hey Dani. I've been thinking about you. I know how you feel and I have to agree with you.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. I get so tired of all this TTC stuff sometimes. I can totally relate to TTC becoming "work." I find my mind going back and forth sometimes...like do I still want this bad enough or not....and if I do....will I be able to handle another loss? Is it worth it? I don't know anymore. Sometimes I think I need to leave well enough alone. But, at the same time, it makes me sad to think there might not be another precious little one for me. :(

As far as our road trip, I live in Idaho and will be doing our annual "obligatory" trip to So Cal to visit family and old friends. Darn....too bad it isn't Georgia instead. ;)

Dani we are taking a road trip last 2 weeks of June too! We are going down to the Redwoods camping for 2 days, then along the California coast, stopping at Disneyland for 2 nights and staying in the Disneyland hotel, then on to the Grand Canyon and up through Vegas staying at Circus Circus for 2 nights then on home. I am wondering if i will be pg on that trip, and it will be rough if I am but I will take it!

Taking the progesterone wasn't a big deal to me and I would rather not take even the slightest chance of it maybe saving a pg BUT I have known low prog problems so it is different for me. What it comes down to is making your own decision based on your life and your body. Whatever you decide it will be right, because it is YOU deciding. Big hug....

Dani,

I understand about not wanting to take the meds....I think you should go on your trip and enjoy yourself.....And if you do get a BFP then start it.... I want to plan a cruise for me and my hubby in Sept / Oct for our anniversary( he was out of the ountry last year).... So I completely understand about wonder what if ????during that time...But I am still thinking on it......We do in this TCC journey need to continue to live our lives and not let it consume us, easier said than done...just a thought!
