Mel - sounds like you have an awesome doc - here's hoping the weight falls right off and you get a sticky little bean on the first month trying!

Mel- that's great news about the weight loss! I really hope this is your ticket to baby #2!

Ten- your daughter is gorgeous!

Re: Journey to Conception group grads!

Have to ask somebody, and you ladies are probably the only ones who would really understand.

I'm not sure if it's sleep deprivation or just that I spent so much time over the last few years either being pregnant or trying to get pregnant, but I keep catching myself thinking that I'm expecting.... and then being disappointed when I remember that I'm not.

I'm not. There's NO WAY I could be, but I find myself envious of friends who are even though we're not planning to try again for several more years. But without something to count down to (ovulation, due date, SOMETHING) I feel... adrift.

Am I crazy? Is this maybe some delayed and really weird manifestation of postpartum depression? I feel like I'm crazy...

Re: Journey to Conception group grads!

Ten- I am there with you. Except I think we are done. It's not registering with my clock though. lol It makes me terribly sad to think this is it.

Re: Journey to Conception group grads!

I am right there with you too, Ten. I still wish that we could have another, but I know that it won't happen for a long time (and likely won't happen at all). Sorry that you're feeling it too!

BTW, Ten, I LOVE that picture of your baby girl! And OMG the rash of BFPs! Jenny, when is your FET? So Melissa, Keena, Leslie & Delana? Wow! So very happy for all of you, and praying for more BFPs!

Ten I felt the same way after I had Asher. I had a friend get pregnant that I worked with, and then another plan a wedding..and It made me super envious, even though I knew I had just had a baby.. it was really the planning parts that I had missed I guess. I don't think your crazy. I think its normal when you've tried so hard. Praying for you!

AFM, I found a new doc who is upping my Met for Insulin Reistance, David and I decided that I will forgo Clomid this cycle and maybe the next until I get about 20 lbs gone, because 185lbs is where I would like to be at the end of my next pregnancy not the beginning. Also, that doc is willing to up it to max dosage after she runs some other tests for other issues I have going on. Pray Met and Clomid will be all we need in the next few months!

Well, my weight sure did drop in 2 weeks, about 20 lbs down!.....maybe because I have been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis! Wow, what a crazy train wreck I have been on and thankful that I did not take Clomid last cycle, could you all have imagined that, me get a bfp and end up in the hospital for a multitude of tests and IV pain meds, potassium(not fun), fluids and steroids!
I am slowly on the mend if you are not fb friends with me and have been following what was going on. My GI doc assured me that I will be able to lead a normal life, run, exercise and yes, even have another baby....but only after he gets me better and this massive flare under control.

Please pray that I continue to heal and that I will be able to care for Claire on my own next week, after my mom flies back to Canada.

Re: Journey to Conception group grads!

Mel - to you - I'm sorry things have been so crazy! How's it going? Hopefully on the upswing...

And thanks to all for assuring me that if I am crazy, I'm at least in good company.
