Do we want to keep this group as is? Or dissolve it and join Operation Population?

Keep as is, I like the small platform, though it is slow.
We need more action, merge into Operation Population!

birdyland wrote:Karen, so glad you and DH had a nice weekend and that he is only gone for 4 days this time.

Ashley.... sorry you're having a rough time with that! Good luck!

Aleia - good luck on your appointment! Let us know!

Jessie - that's fantastic news!!


Mom hasn't been feeling well, and after trying to get her to go to the doctor for a week (she was trying to wait for her regularly scheduled appointment on Tuesday - against my prodding to go earlier) she was feeling so poorly Sunday morning that I was able to convince her to go in. She was very weak and not totally coherent.

On the way to Urgent care, I decided urgent care would not take her, and detoured to the new emergency room/hospital in the area. She was seen fairly quickly and it quickly became evident that her tests showed kidney failure and a recent heart attack. Some more investigation and a CT showed that the cause of the kidney failure was an almost complete blockage of the right kidney system by kidney stones. The good news is that they figured that out, and it is treatable. The bad news is, with the evidence of the heart attack, they will not do surgery, probably not for 6 months. So they came up with an interim solution to put a tube in through her back to drain the kidney. That procedure went well, but it also confirmed that her right kidney, the one with the stones, is very infected.

The doctors all seem confident she will be fine eventually. I do not know any more about the heart attack at this time, although by the blood work, the estimate that it occurred within the last 24-48 hours. Doc's best guess is it happened Saturday.

She is in our brand new hospital, with a private room. They've got all kinds of treatments going in via IV for both conditions. They'll probably keep her for at LEAST a few more days.

In other news, I had an endocrinologist appointment this morning. He confirmed that I do have Hashimoto's thyroiditis - which they really didn't need to know what kind I had before now. It's interesting information, but doesn't help me much as far as treatment goes. Basically what it means is that I have the autoimmune type, I have bad antibodies that have attacked and are attacking my thyroid, which is what caused the hypothyroidism. Also, my labs are creeping back up, so he increased my thyroid replacement dose. AND my A1c is now 5.8 whoooo hoooo!!!! Since none of you probably know what that is, lemme just say that anything under 6 would basically be the number that a non-diabetic would be at - and it's very hard for a diabetic to get there. I've been <6.2 for over a year which is where they want you to be for pregnancy, but this is the first time I've been 5.8. Repeat visit in a month.... even though I am doing fantastically, he wants to watch my endocrine system closely, because it hates me!

buttercup28 wrote:Ashley: I'm so sorry your new relationship did not work out. I can't tell you how many jerks I dated before meeting DH. Keep your head up and one day he will come along. But, DON"T SETTLE for anything less than what makes you happy!!

Dana: So sorry about your mother. I'm glad you got her to ER in time. Glad your numbers are good also.

:hi: Karen, Jessie, Christie, Claire and anyone I've missed.

AFM: Here is the outcome of my appt:

The doctor was extremely nice and understanding. He offered to do a blood panel, but stated that it would be best if I see an RE and he referred me to one. They work in the same building and he highly recommended him. He said that it is extremely likely that I may get pregnant on my own and eventually carry the baby full term, but I need to have the blood panel done since I have had 3 m/c's. He said the RE will do a full workup. He was really concerned about depression though and offered to put me on an antidepressant which I refused. I told him I have a great support team and that my family and I were coping helping each other through this. He then said if I feel like I want to hurt myself or one of my kids to call him right away so he can put me on medicine!! ARE U KIDDING???? I am working so hard at trying to have another child, WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD I WANT TO HURT MY DAUGHTER???? But, i guess that is routine to say. I didn't give him any indication that I was depressed. I mean of course I'm down and it hurts everyday, but I would not say I am depressed. I have a happy loving caring family and we cope with things pretty well. so, that is the rundown and I guess we will just see what happens from here. He said he suggests I wait 6 weeks before trying again for emotional reasons, but I am gonna not try but not protect and see what happens.

Jessie22 wrote:Hey girls!! 1st doctor appt went fantastic! Baby is perfect and growing as it should :) We saw the heartbeat too, @ 162 bpm so a nice strong heart! It was just AMAZING!! I was in awe. I am so happy right now! Here's the first pic of our little peanut!


panacea wrote:Congrats on a great appt, Jessie! Your little peanut looks so cute and cozy in there! Was your DH just thrilled to see it too?!

Aleia: I am glad the doctor referred you to an RE. Even better that you do not have to go any further than you currently do to see him. I hope the blood panel and other tests they start doing now will give you more insight into what may be going on with your body. I think they 'have to' be able to say they offered help or meds, when they see someone that appears to be sad or possibly depressed. But I'm happy to hear that you've got great support at home and it's completely understandable what a toll TTC can take on anyone! Besides, he doesn't know that we have each other to vent to on here whenver we want/need to! :hugs:

buttercup28 wrote:Awww Jessie!!! Baby what a wonderful sight!! HB 162? I'm gonna guess a girl!!!

Karen: Thanks for all the encouragement. I am excited to see the RE!! I hope he can fix me up!!!

bensbaby wrote:Hey everyone!

Dana...OMG I'm so glad you got your mother to the hospital...its crazy what could be going on inside of us and not know! That was a life/death situation and thanks to your prodding she is on her way to recovery!!!


Aleia...glad your appt went good. I hope you get some answers from the RE...I'm sorry I had to laugh when you said the doc was tryna make it seem like you were crazy!! WOW, I mean duh of course you'd be hurt/sad at your losses but I don't think you'd be thinking about hurting people come on....I guess it was standard but it was crazy for him to ask at the same time.

...what a wonderful sight! Congrats on that strong heartbeat!!!

AFM...THE JERK....has now turned into STALKER POTENTIAL!!!!! WTH???? I did not talk to him all day because I have no intentions on giving him a second chance...which by the way we are not officially together as boyfriend/girlfriend anyway but we have been spending lots of time together. Anyway, he calls me at 1035pm and I didn't answer because I had been sleep for like 30 mins...I saw it was him and I hung up the phone. About an hour later..Patches started barking non-stop so I got up to pee and see what was wrong with I was going to let him out the kennel..I saw a figure outside the livingroom window. He walked to my bedroom window and started knocking then he started callin my phone so I realized it was him. I did not answer I tip-toed to the door until he went away and then got back in bed. He txt me and said "Damn guess you're not gonna open the door"

OK...he seriously weirded me out. Who does that? I'm not even your girl that's crazy!!! I'm really done with him now

Jessie22 wrote:Aleia- That's what I heard too, that higher heartbeats indicate girl. Buuuut both my sister in law and best friend had boys and their heartbeats were in the 160s the whole time!! I'm going to hold out hope until we get the gender scan in 10 weeks!

buttercup28 wrote:Jessie: Maybe we can get a poll going to see who guesses what!!! Yay!!!

Dana: Quick question for you... Are you being treated with anything other than progesterone right now, if you don't mind me asking. It's going to be hard to get an appt with this RE and I don't want to just sit around and wait either. I wanna make a baby!!! You give me such hope and strength!!!

buttercup28 wrote:Ok, I just got a call back from the RE. My appt is on May 20th at 1:15 EST. 10 days after my 29th birthday. Well, until then, I am going to keep on trying.

panacea wrote:Ashley: Wow that's freaky the guy is stalking you now and was actually outside your window calling you, especially that late at night! I would definitely cut off all contact and not even hang out with him anymore. Your safety comes first!

Aleia: Going to the RE will be good. It's not too far off now and good for you for trucking along and still trying in the meantime. You are so strong!

Dana: How are things going pgcy-wise? Any new sxs?

Jessie: I got a flash in my mind that you're having a girl. I think I am having a girl as well. We'll see in less than 2 weeks now! I always said I wanted a boy first...even 2 boys and maybe a girl. But honestly, now that I've had a m/c and then taken 2 1/2 years to get pg again, I really don't care what gender the baby is as long as it's healthy. DH has never cared and would be equally happy with a boy or girl. He has been wanting to be a daddy for much longer than I've wrapped my mind around being a mother. LOL

Hey ladies! I know it has been a long time since I stopped by this buddy group but Jessie saw me in another one and said I should stop by!!

Wow! Look at all the BFPs!!! Congratulations! That is fantastic that you all got your BFPs around the same time. :)

DH and I have just gotten back into the TTC game, first month back and patiently (or impatiently) waiting for AF....

I am looking forward to reading all about your pregnancies!

Wed Apr 15, 2009 5:04 am

Hi Jane! Nice to see ya!!

Well, I am waiting to O currently. I was not going to chart this month, but now I have to because RE wants to see charts. So back to the drawing board. I haven't temped in so long that I forgot to this morning, but I did use an OPK yesterday and it was - so I'm hoping that if I start taking BBT tomorrow it will be enough for FF to give me crosshairs when it's time. I will KUP!

Wed Apr 15, 2009 8:10 am

HERE!!! lol

Heeeeeey Jane WELCOME BACK :balloons: are sooooooooo close :shock: I'm excited and nervous for you too!!! :jump: :jump: :fingersx: I've decided to listen to what STALKER has to say....honestly I guess I should be scared of him, but I'm really not. I pack a pistol...and he will get one if he keep acting crazy. However, I think the whole thing with me cursing him out and now ignoring him is really gettin to him and making him think about what he said and did and he just keep apologizing and maybe that was his wake up call to know I'm not gonna tolerate BS!!! IDK...I'm just kinda sitting back on this one right now...see how it plays out I guess.

Wed Apr 15, 2009 9:54 am

Ashley-Please don't let your guard down...some people are so manipulative and say or do anything to get back into your life but then they're the exact same! I know you know that, you're a smart girl. Just be safe.
Aleia-I'm so glad you got an appt w/ the RE, even though its a month away, it'll be here before you know it and they'll be able to help you in more ways than your OB/GYN!
Claire-I can't believe 38 weeks tomorrow! This has just flown by, and your LO will be here shortly. I can't wait :)
Karen-How are you feeling today? Are you getting a lot of movement outta the baby? I can't wait to find out the gender, I'm so excited for you!!
Dana-Hope all is well with you and you check in soon. When is your next appt?
Christie-Check in when you can, I hope all is well with you!

AFM-I'm feeling pretty good. Although I woke up at 11pm last night and literally had puke in my throat..I know disgusting!! I woke up coughing so bad and immediately sat up when I felt and tasted that, I sooo thought I was going to hurl all over the bed but I didn't, whew! Still a bit nauseous, but more tired than anything. Just getting to see our Little Peanut on Sonogram Monday made everything much more real!! Well we are leaving for our cruise a week from tomorrow and I cannot wait, this is going to be a much needed vacation w/ all DH's family and so fun! I'll post pics when we get back. I know I am not going to want to come back to work booo! Anyway my next OB appt is May 11th in which I'll be 12 weeks along...almost officially 2nd Trimester!!!!!

Wed Apr 15, 2009 10:30 am

Hi Claire,

I can't believe your baby is almost here! You're so close! Can't wait to see your nursery pics.

I'm not officially in T3 but getting close. I'm coming up on week 27 so I think by week 28 it's official. It really went by fast! I had a dr. appt. yesterday. Baby is healthy and doc says she's somewhere between 2-3 lbs. I do my glucose testing in a few days and have to get my rhogam shot because I'm RH negative. Hopefully all goes well with that.

Hi to everyone! :hi:

Wed Apr 15, 2009 10:31 am

yep Jessie you're right!

Wed Apr 15, 2009 10:38 am

Jessie: Wow you're moving right along, awesome! Glad you didn't puke last night. That was definitely not a fun stage. I am so glad mine ended finally.

Ashley: Please be careful. I wouldn't give that guy the time of day myself. I know you're having fun, but I agree with Jessie that these types of guys can be very manipulative and say what they think you want to hear and then BAM get scary. Just concerned about you is all.

Claire: sooooo close!!! Wow I can hardly believe you were able to keep from finding out the gender. Amazing! Can't wait to find out what you have and see all the pics.

Kimmy: Coming up on T3 already, cool!! Hope you pass the GD test with flying colors. I had to do the 1hr and 3hr a few weeks ago due to family history plus I failed the 1hr. And I have to do it again at 27wks or so. At least the glucose drink for the 1hr doesn't taste that bad especially if you refrigerate it beforehand. Good luck!

Aleia: Good luck with the charting. Looking forward to your RE appt. Keep your chin up, girl!

Dana: How are you? What have you been up to - visiting your mom? How is she doing now?

AFM, one of the cats peed a big puddle all over my side of the bed last night, which I didn't discover until I was getting into bed at 12:30am. Grrr!!! I am still washing and drying quilt, sheets, mattress topper and water resistant layer this morning. I think it was the female cat either b/c the litter in the box was too low for her liking or b/c she's a daddy's girl and is upset that DH is gone again for work.

Wed Apr 15, 2009 1:16 pm

Okay ladies, since most of you are already PG I will share my saga...

I am still having very light spotting. Actually hardly any at all, not like my normal spotting. I also can not sleep! I am so tired when I get home I lay down but don't nap then last night I tried my hardest to go to bed at 10:15 and tossed and turned for an hour! Then I was awake at 3:30 to pee and couldn't to back to bed! A week ago I would go to bed at 10:00 and sleep soundly until my alarm went off. I am feeling pretty frustrated. Also, my bloating is gone but in it's place is loss of appetite! I haven't eaten anything today but a piece of toast and it is 3:00! Oh yeah and I kinda barfed this morning. A wave of nausea right when I got out of the shower then I kinda did the coughing into the toliet until I threw up, just a little. Ever since last night I have had a feeling like there is a knot in my stomach...

I told DH last night that I was late. He asked how many days and I told him that it is between 2 and 4 days. He gave me a big kiss and told me not to worry about it. Oh, how sweet and innocent... I don't know, I am not feeling myself. And I am not having my usual PMS - even though I am feeling really odd I am happy and patient, not like normal around AF.

I am straight up afraid to test. What if it is a BFN and all this is caused by me coming off BCP? I was on BCP for 6+ years when I came off it last summer and I went right back to my normal 28-30 day cycle.

I need to go home and eat something. :|

I promise I will keep you posted!
