But here I am.
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.

I am new to this fertility stuff. Can I ask how you know that your eggs are "bad"?
that is so sweet and thank you.
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.
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 :)
