August 2012 Roll Call
52
Wed, 08-01-2012 - 7:53am

Our thread to chat and keep track of how we are and where we all are in our cycles. You can share as much or as little as you like. I have found with TTC there really is never TMI. Hope we have some great success stories for this month and I would like to encourage more of our "read only" gals to drop by and say hello. I love having all of our new members with us and as always, my long time pals here too. Love you girls- you are all a great support and comfort for me!

Post your:

Name (real or a username we can call you)  Age, spouse and any children

CD(cycle day) how many cycles have you been trying

How are you trying? natural, IUI  IVF

Anything else you want to share

Sharon, did you heal fine after last D&C? And your cycle went back to normal quickly?

I didn't get AF for 6 weeks, then had a horrible 2 days of non stop AF.  Then, went only 2 weeks, before AF returned again? She's not horrible right now, but she's not easing up on me after 2 days, either? I don't know what is going on?!  :smileyfrustrated:

Hi all, 1st I would like to say "hi" to all the new gals!!  And baby dust to you all (new & returning).....I've been fairly MIA, due to heal my head, heart & body from my last loss.

Name: Kiki (44), DH (45), DD(13)

I am still around & going to root y'all on, altho, I will not be 'actively' trying anymore.  DH & I got pg., then lost twice, in the last 9 months.  So, we talked and decided, we won't rule out another pregnancy, but will not go all out trying anymore.  So, if God intends for us to have our rainbow? we will & I will continue to pray that we get our rainbow.

The good news, I can still get pg. & my body doesn't m/c the bean....bad news? our bean dies at about 7 or 8 weeks.

So, only time will tell, you all will be in my prayers & I will make an effort to be a cheerleader for our over 40 group.  :heart:

Let me revise my previous statement, we could afford a baby if we sacrificed other things, basically my DS college fund, 401k, etc.   It would be hard but worth it to me of course.

So today is Aug. 15. 

CD:  16.  I don't think I O'd this cycle so I would say I am out til Sept. roll call probably.  bummer.

How is everyone else doing? 

Peace,

Sharon

I would say he obliges me because he knows how badly I want a baby. He used to just oblige me because he thought it was unlikely to happen but then all of the sudden after months and months i got a bfp.
Then i miscarried. My third loss. He feels bad for me but we cant afford it and have no bedroom to put it in if we had a baby. We havea 6 year old boy. We live in a 2 br condo and
want to buy a house. I live in the suburbs of NYC
Its one of the most expensive places to live in the country.

Oh Sharon. I feel your frustration. MY DH is not on board either. I am at CD12 today and I think O day is tomorrow. Can't convince DH to connect this week. Last week, sure. I think he is definitely on to me.

Nancy - I agree with what you said about the "game" of making DH think it is his idea. Not working for me this month. I am going to give it one more try this pm but honestly the whole process just tires me out. It only takes one time though (happened with DS). I pray on it and try to keep moving forward knowing that if I am successful again, my 4 y/o DS will at last have a sibling.

I'm in the same boat,. I am afraid he is going to start pulling out! He is so on to me and my plan and so not on board with it. Maybe I should just give up this whole thing and move on. Its so hard.

Sharon, we are almost cycle buddies. I'm on CD 7. Let the games begin- I'm talking about the one where I make hubby think it was all his idea to BD at just the right time. FX  that you catch the golden egg!

Hi Una and Welcome! Sorry I have been away and couldn't reply. Hopefully you caught that golden egg this cycle and won't need to chart next time. Please jump into any of the threads and chat. We look forward to hearing more about you and sharing this journey with you.

Hi Barbara and welcome. I read your other post. I'm sorry that AF seems to have found you. Hoping you get that blazing dark, no doubt about it, BFP soon. Feel free to jump into any of the threads and chat. We look forward to sharing this journey with you.
