JOAN!!! I remember you!! I have thought about you MANY times in the past year. :) I was PG right along with you and I can't remember for sure, but I think I miscarried right after you did in April. I concieved again in June and had a PERFECT baby girl in February! I am SOOOOO happy to see you back!!! YOu were so sweet and encouraging to me on the various boards on ivillage. I'm so glad you're in a "good place" now. I dont have much time to write right now.. but you can check out my PG blog down in the expecting moms section.

*HUGS*

Welcome back Joan! I am another who gave it until Dec 09 to have a bfp, stopped actively TTCing and am now back! I am trying to take it just a day at a time, and so far so good. I do hope your body cooperates with you. Your attitude is great, and even though our circumstances are different I get a lot of what you are saying. I also do not want to miss out on the joys of my life right now, I don't want to get so caught up in getting that bfp that I neglect my family. Hopefully we will both be holding babies soon, but if not that we will both keep this attitude no matter what. ((((Hugs))))

I am new to this fertility stuff. Can I ask how you know that your eggs are "bad"?

Thanks,

Jodi,


My name is Kim, I am 44 and just lost a baby yesterday at 8 weeks. We had just seen his/her little heartbeat a few days earlier and thought everything was OK. We had not planned on this last pregnancy, we already have 6 children...but after we saw our baby's hb could not help but fall in love with our child and we were SO excited. I feel guilty that it's only been 1 days since we lost our angel and I'm already longing to try again. My dh absolutely does not want to go through this again so I'm not sure I will get another chance to live the dreams I'd been planning on living this past month before we lost our child.


Anyway, I was skimming the boards and I came across your post and noticed the link to your blog. I read through your blogs and I was so touched by your love for your son and the strength you showed throughout his short life. I absolutely think you made the right choices for Michael. I just wanted to pop in here and let you know that I really admire your courage and I hope and pray that you will be blessed again (I'm assuming since you are on the TTC board you are trying again).


Best wishes to you and your family.


Kim

Joan, your words really touched me. I'm sorry for your loss. It's good to know you have a Dr. whom you feel comfortable with and supports you. Know that we are all in this together and are rootin' for ya too.

My husband & I are ttc #1. I'm 44 & he is 40. We tried our first attempt at IUI but after bloodwork my Dh is now on clomid to balance a pesky hormones. My #'s were good last time, but it's been awhile and had to get more bld wrk done. I will get my FSH results on tuesday (seems like an eternity)... Hopefully we can try IUI again by june. IVF is the best option, but unfortunately we can't afford it and Ins.does not cover. But Like yourself, I'm not giving up until I've exhausted all possible options.

All the best on your journey, hope your stay here is a short one due to a bfp :)

Sounds like we are on a similar path : ) They actually have me starting birth control the next time I start a period, which I obviously do not understand this at all, but I am going down this road so I will try not to be too neurotic (No guarantees).
