I remember as a kid my mom would heat up tea tree oil (I think?) and put it in my ear when it hurt. It felt so good!

I used EVOO and TTO mix (1TBSP olive oil + 6 drops TTO) and put 3-4 drops in the achy ear.

Treat at any early signs of infection or pain. Or if wax buildup gets thick and gunky (DS makes really thick wax, but never had an infection).

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (March 1-15)

Hi ladies, can I tentatively join?

We've been ttc for 10 months with an 8w loss on October 19 and a 4w4d loss on January 29. I had a positive test this morning in midst of a seventh circle of you-know-where week here at home, and now I'm just kind of a blob on the couch twiddling my lips - blblb...blblb...blblb...

Wednesday I had an xray for a cracked rib, they found a nodule on my lung, had a CT scan yesterday (thank goodness I had an abdominal shield for both jic), waiting on news on Monday or Tuesday. I was thinking worst case scenario, have my oncologists lined up jic, and then I got a line on a test this morning. Two subsequent tests are negative (but only with a 1 hour hold, so what did I really expect???).

I think I just need some ladies who understand perhaps not the "yay I'm having a baby" but the "really, I can't go through this again, too, in the midst of all this madness" even though you are desperately hoping for a THB and were starting medicated cycles in 40 days but who's counting- the conflicting thoughts confuse me, and I KNOW what I'm thinking! I posted in TTC after loss, but someone told me they got an evap on a Wondfo and my mind shut down unwilling to accept just one more what if. So I blocked that message out, and now I'm here. Can I have some love, pretty please???

Lots of love! And hugs! I think you will find many, many ladies here who understand how you feel.

Positives (lighter than yesterday) this morning on both wondfo tests from my newest lot and a lighter positive on a wondfo from a different lot. Of the six wondfos I took, three were bfn along with a Frer. My ovacue indicated my progesterone spike from two days ago dropped dramatically and my temp spike yesterday fell to two tenths below cover line. I'm thinking this might have been another chemical, especially having positives get lighter from two different wondfo lots.

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (March 1-15)

I am supposed to be 11 weeks on Friday. I find this thought to be absolutely nuts. It's not like the home stretch or anything but it feels like i haven't been 11 weeks pregnant in forever!! Both of my losses were pretty early.

Hope4More - I'm sorry. I remember how confusing it is to be testing every day, comparing lines.
