I'm glad you are feeling better and still feel hope rising up! Happy belated birthday! I know as we age we want to tend to forget about it but with age comes with wisdom! Luke is 37 today! I'm was really hopeful reading the stories about low amh. One way or another you are going to have you a baby! I had a friend in here who had something similar and she is quite a bit younger and she had 3 miscarriages and after the last quit Ttc for awhile and surprised us with a surprise bfp and she's now in her second trimester with a healthy baby! So keep hoping hun!!

Court- I'm trying to keep hoping! Some days are definitely better than others. It would be so much easier if I at least knew how much longer I needed to hope for. How are you? Any news on the placenta?

Peaks- I hope your little girl is still being good to you and that you are sleeping when you can.

AFM- I still haven't O'd grrrr. Sometimes I just wish that one thing about my TTC or cycles would be normal. It's such a beat down to be guessing every month.

The thing is, I don't think my cycles were any better before my mc. I just thought they were leveling out because I had three consistent ones in a row. Last fall the same thing happened: three consistent cycles in a row after a crazy long one and a crazy short one. I didn't temp the last few days, so I don't even know what's happening other than AF seems no where in sight.

I'm trying to take it easy this week as it's my last week of summer. I'll be back to teaching full time next week. Last night we got to see The Fellowship of the Ring in the theater. It was so fun to see it on the big screen again. The same theater is showing the other two movies as well the next few weeks. The only downside is that the next two start at 9 pm on a Tuesday night. We're still going to go, though, even though the next day will be miserable. :)

How are you two? What have you been up too?

Hello both,

I hope this finds you well! I admit that it's difficult for me to post the way I'd like to these days, as I often only have one hand available (if that), the other usually occupied with breastfeeding the small creature who seems to be perpetually attached...

Things are going okay here, though we just had two pretty long nights where Salomé wanted to eat constantly, like nonstop for hours! One breast feels like it's ready to fall off! I think I have a blocked milk duct somewhere, so am trying to figure out how to deal with that, as the pain makes me dread feedings. Also trying to figure out how to manage when she has digestive issues or air trapped inside, as that seems to make her uncomfortable (and therefore want to be on the breast yet again). Apart from these questions and the fatigue, things are pretty good. Getting out is less scary, and I'm a little more comfortable breastfeeding in public (thus solving the constant what-if-she-cries worry). She's becoming more and more expressive, so will look forward to a first real "intentional" smile whenever that comes.

Am still keeping up with your news, even if I'm not responding as often as I'd like to. Momma, can't believe you're already as far along as you are! Janeite, I hope you enjoy the last week of summer to the max!

Hey peaks! Not like you aren't busy or anything! It's ok I understand :) she is a beauty! I love it when they start developing their little personalities! Since like she enjoys nursing huh! Sorry to hear about the tummy troubles though. Do you have gas drops over there? I think they are called mylicon drops or something like that. Also gripe water is another thing we have here to use for babies. Does what you eat affect her? I don't know if you drink a lot of milk but that can upset their tummies too. I was terrible at nursing in public. First off I never had enough milk to feed my babies and I had a hard time getting them latched on under a cover. I so understand nipple pain from nursing too! Getting them latched on was always the most painful part. If they have a shallow latch it will make your nipples hurt worse. I used a prescription compound cream that worked wonders last time. Do you pump too? Does she like pacis? I tried not to give my babies pacis until they were nursing good but I gave in last time. Do what works!!

Becky how are things going with you? I've been on my phone mostly so i haven't looked at your chart. Have you been for anymore tests yet?

I'm doing good. I'm 31+2. It seems like I'm growing daily! Hunger send out of control at the moment! I have a dr appt and scan on Tuesday. I'm looking forward to seeing size of baby. I found a picture of me when I was pregnant with Bel and I did a split screen with one of me now and I'm much smaller this time. I started out way smaller in the beginning though. So really this I'd the first time I've actually got to be more belly than fat! Haha I'll post a link with some recent pics.

Hi gals,

Peaks- I'm pretty sure neither of us expect you to be posting much right now! You have your hands full (quite literally!). I'm glad that going out is getting easier for you. I'm not in a position to give you advice, but I hope you figure out the feeding issues soon. I'm sure it can't be pleasant to be in pain and questioning what's wrong with you little one. Hang in there, mama! I'm sure you'll figure it out! Oh, and she is a cutie!

Court- I can't have any more testing done until I hit CD1. So far I'm on day 38 with no O and no breakthrough bleeding. *sigh* So frustrating! Your pics look good. It must feel nice this time around to know that you are all baby. You're getting to be so close! Are you all ready?

AFM- Still waiting on this stupid cycle to end. I wish it would get on with it. I'm stuck in limbo until something happens. So frustrating. I think I may have figured out why I have an anovulatory cycle each summer, though. While I still eat well, my meal times and number of meals each day changes. I think that might have affected my energy enough to throw things out of whack, especially since I've been having so much trouble with my adrenals and energy anyway. So I guess that's one good thing to come of my current journey.

Hello there,

Janeite: Ugh for the long cycle! But glad that you may have some clarity about the anovulatory cycle each summer. If I remember correctly, you and DH were on a special diet. How has that been going?

Momma: Thanks for the pictures. It seems that you're experiencing this pregnancy a little differently than the others, is that right? How have you been doing this week?

Breast pain has gone away thankfully, perhaps thanks to silver protective cups that someone gave me. DD has been rather agitated at night and taking quite a while to fall asleep, but DH has started taking her into another room and letting her fall asleep on him so I can get some shut eye before the next feeding. Today is going okay, but I still look forward to the day when our routine is a little more stable...

Becky ugh I bet you are wishing this cycle would just end. I bet your numbers were off this cycle when you got tree blood work done hence the long cycle. I bet when you have a more normal cycle they wont be that bad. Like I'm a Dr or something. Lol just my educated opinion :) no I'm not ready!! I have still only purchased a swing and a handful of clothes. I hope their is an end in sight for this cycle soon for you!

Peaks :) I hope your littke one decides she wants to be on a routine for you soon. Thankful your breast pain is better. It's so nice of your Dh to help you out so you can get some sleep. One day at a time,,,,

So I had my growth scan and baby is measuring 2 weeks small. He weighs approximately 3lbs 2 oz. They aren't really concerned unless he stops growing which could mean my placenta isn't functioning well. If that's the case he will have to be delivered early. I'm hoping that's not it though. My last baby was only 6lbs 5 oz so this one will probably be about the same. So prayers please I go full term and I have no complications!

Hi ladies,

Peaks- I hope you're work your sleep schedule out soon!

Court- Praying your little one hangs in there and keeps growing!

AFM- CD 45 and still no O. I'm so frustrated and starting to feel really down today. Sometimes I really wonder how much longer I can go on like this. To add to all that my financial worries are through the roof. I'm really wondering if we're doing the right thing and making the right choices. :/

Hey Becky! I read your post in a hurry and forgot to come back and reply. I made a mental note and just forgot. Please forgive me. Anyhow, I know you are frustrated. Do you have any progesterone left you could jump start a cycle that way? I know you just want to get on with it. I know the financial burden is tough as well. I promise you guys will get it figured out. I know right now you just don't have a lot of answers and are in limbo and that seems like the worst place to be when you just want to get on with it. You are a strong woman and you can do this hun! Your biggest dream is to have a baby and I woke heartedly believe it will happen. A year from now you will probably be pregnant and be looking back at this and you will see the timing was actually perfect even though that's hard to see right now. I just want to give you a big hug! I promise if we ever had to Texas again I'm going to find you for a visit beyond the computer!

Peaks how are you all doing? Hoping you are getting some much needed sleep! I'm scared of the no sleep! Haha I know how taxing it is on your body.

I had a fetal echo done a couple days ago. I don't have r the results yet but the tech talked like if she saw anything she would've gotten me a Dr appt with the specialist that day. I have them done in each pregnancy because my brother died of heart defects. My kids have never had any issues though. It's just a precaution. Weeks are speeding by and I still am not anymore prepared!

Becky I see you are still on this incredibly long cycle. Ugh! Have you tried progesterone to jump start your period? Or would that mess up your testing for after you start. I, sure you are way beyond aggravated! Hugs hun!

Peaks how are you guys doing? I hope motherhood is all you'd hoped and more :) you sure have a perfect beautiful daughter!

I'm 34 weeks and am feeling nervous and excited. I have worried way more this time than with my others and I'm ready for that part to be over. That's the only part of being pregnant I don't enjoy. I think just because I know more from ttc and have read so many horror stories this time it has had me thinking well it's bound to happen to me. I know that's so stupid and totally not the right frame of mind. On another note I finally got all of my big items purchased. Bed, car seat, stroller, dresser changing table, bottles and clothes. I still need a few blankets, burp cloths, diapers wipes, lotion baby wash and diaper bag. Just the smaller things but hopefully I can accumulate that stuff quickly. Haha I'm in no hurry. I am kind of hoping I even go past my due date. Not many women say that!! My last scan was great. They aren't measuring growth again until 36 weeks but he's looking good for now! Still can't decide on a name. At first we liked Bentley but we are kinda getting away from that. If you have any suggestions please do share!

Hi girls!

Sorry for the silence again. I've been busy getting all my students scheduled at the start of the school year. It's been a bit crazy. At first, I only had half the number of students I need, so I've been scrambling to pick up more. They're starting to come in, but it's been really slow. (More stress, yay!) That and there has been absolutely nothing happening for me TTC-wise. It does look like my body is finally doing something to end this cycle. My temps have been rising now for the past few days. FF thinks I'm 7 dpo. I'm not sure if it was an actual O this late in the cycle, or if my body is finally just moving on with things. Either way, I'm glad to know that this cycle should be over next week. Remember my really long cycle last summer? I O'd on CD 55; this cycle was CD 53. Weird, huh?

Court- You better look me up if you're ever down this way, and I'll do the same if I'm ever back in STL! It would be great to meet in real life! You are gettso no so close! I hope you are feeling calmer about things. It must feel good to start getting all the necessities in. Are you doing a nursery?

Peaks- Same goes for you! You need to look me up if you are ever in Dallas, and you just might have a visitor if I ever find myself in your part of the world. :) How are things going? Have you worked out a sleep schedule yet? Are the feedings getting any easier?

I know I haven't been on here as much of late, but I sure am going to be a little lonely miss you two when you both have little ones to care for! :)

Good to hear from you Becky! I'm so glad you are finally getting somewhere with this cycle! Strange that you had a similar cycle a year ago. I hope you are close to finding out some more answers to what could possibly be going on. I hope your body regulates on its own. I'm sure you have been busy with getting back to school. I know we have.

I'm 35 weeks today. I'm getting more worn out and just in general tired. The sleep at night isn't coming easily. Bel has been quite the handful lately and honestly I'm getting a bit scared to what it's going to be like with her plus a newborn. There's nothing that girl can't think up of doing! I go back to the dr on Wednesday. So far so good.
