Hi Annemarie, I'm so sorry to hear about you losing your dad, your baby and Pinky all at this time of the year. That would make me so overwhelmingly sad:( I'm sending gentle hugs to surround you and hopefully lift your spirits. My grandfather passed away right after New Year's two years ago, and last New Year's was really hard for me. I'll tell you a little story, and maybe it will bring you some comfort as it did to me...I found out at my 12 week scan and resulting CVS that my little boy had Trisomy 18 along with hydrops fetalis. All the doctor's words just blurred together as they said, "100% fatal", "incompatable with life", "life threatening to continue with the pregnancy", etc., etc. DH and I decided to put Will and myself in God's hands and let Will stay with us as long as God saw fit. About two excruciatingly long weeks later, my grandmother called me and said that she wanted to tell me something, but that I needed to sit down first. She had been in yoga that morning and as she was in the final resting pose, she saw my grandfather, Bampa, standing in front of her. (He had passed away the previous New Years.) She said he seemed so real that she felt she could reach out and touch him. She even said he was wearing a brown windbreaker that she had never seen before! Bampa was standing with his arms out in front of him like he was waiting to receive something; and he had such a look of peace and happiness on his face. She started crying (and so did I) as she said, "Krista, I just know he is waiting for Will." Several days later, I had an appt. to check on Will and we saw on the u/'s that he had passed away:( The doctor was able to calculate when his heart stopped beating, by measuring him, and wouldn't you know it...Bampa wasn't waiting for Will; he was sent to get him! That day was also Bampa's birthday...I can only imagine the party in heaven celebrating Bampa's birthday and Will's arrival. So...I would be willing to bet that your daddy is holding your little baby right now, just waiting for you to meet him/her, and maybe Pinky is playing with your baby as well:) More hugs coming your way!

Krista,

That was such a beautiful story.  I certainly hope when it is my time that I am surrounded by my family members and pets that have passed on.  Thank you for your words. 

Vickie-I am sorry that you also have "anniversaries" at this time of year.  I wouldn't wish that on anyone else. 

Well ladies it is up to us to hold each other up and carry on.  I love this forum, as so many of us have similar experiences and can comiserate with one another.  All of the great paths in life have obstacles, let's help each other through our rough spots.  Hugs and love to everyone!

Ava, when does DH return? Are you having any symptoms of approaching O? I'm thinking FX for you this weekend!

 Annemarie- I totally understand how this month and season is a bad time for you. I lost my Mom on Dec. 1st 8 years ago and I have 2 angel EDD's this month. It is hard to deal with and get through.  I am so glad you had a great party for Mom. I hope for you to find more things to make you laugh and enjoy your life. Here's to having some joy in our lives and making some happy memories for a change. Much Love to you,

Vickie

Hi Krista,

DH returned yesterday morning, yaaay!! Very excited to hear about the obgyn appt.  Am not giving much info out to him re O, fertile times etc, just keeping quiet about it as I don't want to make him feel like he has to fix everything. 

I've started using the OPK's and still negative, but I have no other symptoms of approaching O either.  Last month it was day 25, hoping it might be earlier this month, fx.  

Just in case it suddenly creeps up on me (O that is!) I am keeping the BDing happening.

How are the symptoms?? Are you testing soon?? I've actually been getting a message that I am not authorised to post so hope this goes through.  I haven't been into 2WW yet as the board is moving so slowly that I keep forgetting to go in there to check.

Hoping all is well for you and sending buckets of baby dust in your direction.

hi Vickie, I wasn't able to access your chart today, how are your temps looking? Did you test or should I say poas?   Yesterday your chart looked amazing!  Sorry if I am a bit behind the times on these posts, I haven't been into 2WW yet as board is moving at snails pace and I keep getting not authorised to post messages.  Im crossing everything and hoping down here.

Hope December is your month.

Sprinkle sprinkle, sprinkle (of babydust)
