• FOREST and PRINCESS – welcome to our forum. I don’t have any ‘surefire’ ways to get through those first few weeks but I do know that the ladies in this forum are amazing and we’re here to support you in whatever way we can. Welcome and I am so sorry for your previous losses. Here’s to sticky little beans!

  • BABY – I had a few times of ‘tenderness’ in my abdomen. The next day it was gone. Then it would reappear only to disappear again. Just keep an eye on it and if you are concerned, you can always talk to your doctor.

  • JDUBB – hope baby gives you a peek today! Good luck!

  • HICKIE – I’m so sorry for your loss. Sending you hugs and comfort.

  • Just an update: contractions since Tuesday at 4 am. Irregular… Have been to and from hospital twice, heading back there this afternoon. We hope this is it but apparently par for the course in first babies/labours. Will let you know when this LO arrives.

  • BAKA – I am so sorry you are having to make such a difficult and heartbreaking choice. We had to terminate our first pregnancy at 13 weeks due to medical reasons too. We were told our baby would not make it to term and if it did, it would die shortly after. I am just so sorry.

  • BABY – I wouldn’t worry. Like the other girls my LO is nuzzled next to the placenta and if your placenta is anterior (in front) it might be harder to get good pictures. Not to worry! LISA -Preggers sent a website a while back about the nub theory, I’ll send it when I get home. I know BUTTER is quite skilled at guessing! For the nub they usually…[Read more]

  • MISH – did your DH beam with pride?? lol.

  • Morning all. My Christmas highlight was meeting my 4 month old nephew for the first time. It was hard since his birth coincided closely with my second loss but it was nice nonetheless. DH and I are in the midst of a BD marathon so to speak. It didn’t happen the first two nights but given that the FF window was 7 days and I’m anticipating to O any…[Read more]

  • OK everyone, I do need your opinion… Woke up this morning with sore throat and beginnings of a cold/flu. Feeling achy and headache. I’m in the TWW – FF says I’m 4 DPO but might even be less than that. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to take something beyond Tylenol at this stage. I don’t want to be risky but I have some Tylenol cold and flu that might…[Read more]

  • RED – you have been here for so many of us, even while grieving and being in pain yourself. We are all so grateful for the gifts of your comfort and undying support. Know that we will all be there in spirit. Especially when you are feeling alone. xoxo

    Morning all! AOTD – I didn’t have a specific career in mind, though I did think maybe a teacher or vet at one time. I remember doing a ‘career test’ in high school to determine what career you were cut out for based on your personality and I ended up with Funeral Director!! Crazy. Someone told me that it was funeral director because I’m…[Read more]

    TTC – I can’t comment on your chart yet, looks good. Hopefully the rest of the days until test day will fly by!

    Hi everyone! Just came up for air after our BD marathon. Got a +ve OPK yesterday and this morning, but temp also went up so I think O day was today! Had one last BD session for good measure and will now officially enter the 2WW as of tomorrow. So test day around April 1st or 2nd! Just wanted to wish everyone a great rest of your weekend.

    ONE DAY – I have to agree with the sentiments shared so far, waiting 1-2 cycles is a hard thing to think about now but realize that the grief gets pushed down deeper if you don’t take the time to grieve your baby before moving onto another one. It’s super hard – the ladies on this forum are great and will support you through the tough times. Good…[Read more]

    Well said, MAMA. I have my first anniversary due date next week and like so many of you are receiving the formula and coupons in the mail. I have to hold tight to the fact that I will be able to use those things one day. Let’s just hope they don’t expire before I can use them! RED/BLESSED/BUTTER/HARDY – thinking of you.

  • karimck replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    LOIS – so glad you and Sean are OK! Rest easy.

    Evening ladies! DH and I had our ‘anatomy scan’ today (18 weeks). All looks well with baby. We are measuring precisely on our dates. 18w2d. Have to go back in two weeks just to double check the heart and diaphragm – baby wasn’t cooperating to let them see everything they needed but the doctor was very happy with how things look so far. And we…[Read more]

    BUTTER – the website I bought from was in BC, called Cozy Bums (www.cozybums.ca). They are the prefolds and covers that EM mentioned. And they have snaps not Velcro so much longer lifespan ( I think the snaps are guaranteed for life. If you google ‘amp diapers review’ you’ll get tons of info. Hope that helps. I got 8 different colors. They are so cute!!
