~*2014 BFP - This time it will be sticky bean!*~

Postby Kandii » Sun May 04, 2014 2:50 pm

Figured I would throw up a post for anyone hoping for a 2014 BFP :sticky:
It would be good to have a buddy post for those who have also experienced a loss and are TTC again. Emotions are very different this time around.
Quick background...
My DH and I got our very first BFP on Dec 29, 2013 and lost that pregnancy to blighted ovum Feb 5, 2014.
We have finally been given the green light to TTC again and currently on CD6!
Good luck to you all on your journeys, and I have my fingers crossed we will get our 2014 BFP and sticky bean this year.

Hi Kandii,

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss at 10 weeks :(

I am joining some loss-threads for the first time this time around. I think it will be nice to talk to women that know that the first hurdle is getting BFP, the second hurdle is keeping that bean!

My story: TTC > 1 year (boooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

BFP - October 2013 - miscarriage at about 6 weeks pregnant

Then this January cycle, a chemical pregnancy. I knew I was pregnant for a whole 24 hours before the bleeding started. :(

Anyway, don't want to be all doom n' gloom. I am currently in my TWW...I have a mental problem known as "always-thinks-she's-pregnant" and so I'm trying really hard to NOT think that way. It just makes CD1 way too devestating.
BFP on Friday Feb 3rd 2017 but ended in miscarriage at 7 1/2 weeks :(

Didn't chart this time, last time was TTC for over a year, BFP chart from daughter :D :

Welcome! Glad you are joining me :)
TTC for over a year? I can only imagine how frustrating that has been.
That loss for me was my very first pregnancy so I don't know how this next attempt at TTC will go.
How long are your cycles typically?

Hi Happy and Kandii
I recently got my first ever BFP after 17 cycles TTC only to have it taken away 2 weeks later....
I am still very sad, angry and emotionl as hell!
My work is very understanding and I was able to take 2 weeks off to grieve and sort out my emotions. I am going back Monday after Mother's Day. My DH is taking it extremely hard as well. He works in child care and is having a really hard time keeping it together at work.
I am currently still spotting and hoping we can get back on the TTC train real soon.
Happy to have your company.

Hi ladies. I am so sorry for your losses, but I hope we all see stickies very soon.

We started TTC aug 2012 for 3-4 months then had to break for 6 months. TTC again since June 2013.

Had my first BFP in Sept 2013 but lost it and my right tube at 6w6d in Oct due to an ectopic. Had to recover from surgery for a cycle then got another BFP a couple cycles after in Dec/Jan, but it was a chemical.

We have 30% reduced fertility and 10% chance for another ectopic so I will be nervous if I get another BFP but am hopeful it will happen soon.

This is my last cycle before what would have been my due date, so I am a bit sad but trying to focus on the positives.

I love the company of others who have been through similar experiences.
Me - 36
Hashimotos, JHS/EDS, ANA negative, 1 Fallopian tube
DH - 41

Welcome! It's good have you ladies join :)
Good luck to you all! :)

Nothing new here. CD8 and AF won't go away. The MC really messed up my cycle. I am typically a 7 day girl with A few days of spotting following but today I'm still having a light flow. Boo.

hey girlies..i will join you ladies....I just want to say, that for you ladies that have been trying for over a year, I commend you....that takes a lot of patience and strength and I would be a padded room somewhere. even though I have two beautiful girls already, it still is not easy to lose a baby when you have been trying and praying for one. but I do know what it feels like to try for so long...I tried for 2-3 years for our first one and assumed that I could not get pregnant...being on military insurance, there are so many routes you can go, and I did not want to jump through hoops at the time....but then it came at the exact right time......but the support here is amazing and I feel like we will have a positive thread.....

WOW Kristie, I've been reading your posts for so long and didn't know that about your first!

2 -3 years! Please tell me that over and over at random LOL that is so comforting. I love stories of successful pregnancies that took over a year but happened naturally. They are such a nice reminder that it "can happen".

Thanks for sharing that!

As for padded walls....it's probably too late for me! I needed those LONG ago! :lol:

yeah don't give up. the first one can take some time for unlucky ones like me. then the second one was actually a birth control baby....but I was on the pill, and after her I went on to the stronger stuff. 18 months apart was close enough for me....no more like that. I tease my husband all the time that this time we could get twins....he doesn't think it is that funny.

Hey ladies!
Welcome to everyone whose joined us :) I'm glad to be able to share this experience with others who've been through it.
I don't have any children yet so I am really hoping the miscarriage was a one time thing. It was really discouraging to have my very first pregnancy end like that.
AF has finally decided to bugger off! Now we try to catch that egg!
GL to everyone this cycle! :)

Kandii im so glad you finally got your cycle!

We have been ttc #2 since August 2013. Bfp right away but ended in blighted ovum with D&C Oct 12, 2013. Then bfp in Feb 2014 ending in mc April 21, 2014. We took a medical two week break but are now ntnp. I don't know what my hcg is down to though, so need to start poas to see if I'm still making lines.

Doc ordered progesterone for me to start after next O, and said to take daily baby aspirin. Hoping something works! Would also like to wean my 18 month old in case that is causing problems. She's not going for the idea though.

Hi ladies
A few quick questions for you:

How do you properly date a miscarriage? Do you go by the date you started bleeding, the date you passed the majority of the tissue or the date you stopped bleeding?

Also...how long did you all wait after your miscarriage to start TTC again? We started NTNP this past week only 2 weeks after I quit bleeding. Do you think we should be using protection and not actually trying?

Still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I'm not pregnant and will not have my baby at Xmas time. Should be 8 weeks along and getting excited about morning sickness instead I'm back to worrying about when I will O :(

The date of your miscarriage should be the date you passed the sac (the part that holds the baby)
I am currently NTNP and I am on my third cycle post-MC but I have had a lot of complications following misoprostol. I had some retained tissue that 93 days after using the misoprostol finally pulled free and am currently bleeding/recovering from that.
So that all being said DH and I won't be actively TTC until August/September.
