I wish we all lived near each other so we could go out for DRINKS!!! lol

Tracy... OMG, you must've been SO incredibly scared. I am SOOOO thankful that the babies are just fine. I have heard stories similar to that before and everything turned out just fine. So, as hard as I'm sure it will be... try not to worry. I know first hand that's easier said than done. But, I believe in my heart that God is protecting your little miracles and that everything will be ok. Big hugs to you!!!!!!

I'm in a better place mentally today. I still don't know what lies ahead for us... but for today I am going to count my blessings and enjoy my amazing husband and our blessed life together. We have good health... a beautiful home... a wonderful family. I am trying to focus on the positives.

kwam- I wish you lived near me and could sit us both down and give us some advice. He is burnt out. He really would be ok with not having a baby though. I dont want to give up. I feel after this FET I have no choice. I really cant afford to go to Staples and do a pay cut right now. I thought maybe I can pay off some bills and then maybe I can go to Staples. If my FET doesnt work. I think I'll do the FEt since it's easy and it seems I might be able to get this money in the near future. He does want his marriage back. He says Im a one dimentional character and it's just baby. That is all I talk about. That is all he associates me with. I Feel we'll never be the same again. I think he hit bottom as well. You really think if I stop talking about and move on he might want to try this again? No be honest with me please. I want this to work out for us. I think this last failure was the last straw. he said I sound like a drug addict in trying to find this money. But what he doesnt understand is how important this is to me. He just doesnt feel it's worth it. He doesnt want TTC to be apart of the relationship at all. He wants to live a normal life. About a year ago he had a song for me. It's by The offspring. It's called fix you. You should listen to it. It was his song for me. I cry so hard when I hear cause I see how bad things were. Maybe we both need to go and speak to someone for help. I want us to be normal again and maybe it's time to step back. He wants his wife back and I want myself back. He said I let this destroy me. I think him going along to get help will not help us. I think we should go together and to someone different. I dont want to see the lady he is talking to.

Yayam- Im sorry. I thought it was trigger. But no worries. It's early. you still have time for a BFP.

Jenny- You got that right. I dont know what lies ahead but I need to focus on the good things. Were healthy and my DH doesnt need surgery. Just a cyst for now that will be monitored. I have a home and a great family. I wish we did live near each other so we could go out. I would love that more then anything. Where do you live? I think just about all of us on here need a good drink.

Mere, I'm in Kansas City. Kwam, wouldn't it be fun for all of us to get together? At least we have the board : )

For anyone who's ever had a D & C... wondering if this is normal??
I've been bleeding like a heavy period since the procedure on Tuesday. I'm not filling a pad an hour or anything, but it's a heavy period for sure. Sorry for TMI here, but I also passed a pretty big piece of tissue on Wednesday evening... nothing like that since then... but it kinda freaked me out!!!! Do you think all of that sounds normal?? How long will I bleed?? I just want it to stop... it's such a horrible reminder.

Jenny- I only spotted with my d&e. I know people who have gotten a full period. I'm sure it's very normal. my doctor said he sponged my lining so I wouldnt bleed. maybe they didnt do that with you. I hope it goes away soon. It might last for a few days. I know it's sad to see. Yea were not close at all. to bad.

Thanks Mere -- I'm glad to know this all sounds normal. It freaks me out. I hate blood... and especially when it's such a sad reminder!!! Ugh.

Quinn -- Yes, count your blessings for your DS... but that doesn't mean it makes it any easier when you want more children so desperately. We are all struggling... just at different places in our journey :wink:

Jenny- I think he should have soaked up your lining too. The doctor said he sponged it up for me so there wouldnt be much bleeding. I was like you can do that? then can I go in every month for that procedure and you can just sponge up my lining in a min or so and then no AF. I just had spotting for about a week. it was nice cause no bleeding to remind me and i didnt pass anything. Imagine if you would have let it go on it's own. the amount of blood and things you would. I said no way. My heart couldnt take all that.

quinn- Im sure having a child makes it easier a little bit. But it's also important to have a brother or sister for you son and to build your family. Depends where your in life like Jenny said. Since Im having so much problems one is really all I need. And if I only get one i will still be sad I was never able to build my family up. This will change me forever. But I must not be defeated and move on.

Tracy - I am glad the babies are ok....I can imagine how scared you were.

Mere - I feel so bad about your BV. I have only had one yeast infection in my life and it sucked. I am sure this is even worse. I feel so bad that your DH has had enough. I don't know if I could do it on my own. I am obsessed just like you are and I talk about it all the time to DH. If I couldn't, it would be hard. We are coming up on 3 years about this being my life. I really hope it happens for us. Our FETs are going to do it for both of us, I know it.

Jules - Can't wait to hear about your beta.

Yay - How many DPO are you?

Jenny - I would love to have a drink with you girls. You are the only people that understand what is going on with me. Honestly, I don't really hang out with my friends that much because they just don't get it.

stboom- Does your Dh not mind that you talk to him about all the time? I have you girls and my mom to talk to. So it's nice like I dont have anyone to go too. It's 4 years for me. One was just us trying on our own so it wasnt as stressful then. Our FET"s just have to work for us. Sticky ones. Yea my friends are cluelss and then they ask me stupid questions or some make stupid remarks I dont want to hear. I had 2 yeas infections before and both of them were from antibiotics. This is actually from the antibiotics. I took them which gave me the yeast which lead to the BV. So it's really just a trickle down effect. I never had this before ever. I never have issues like this. I only got this stuff form antibotics. But the way Cathy talks it's hard to get rid of. It's worse then YI. It burns. YI never burns and just was itchy and irritated. Plus YI can clear up in like a day with the one day stuff. Nothing really out there but pills to help this. There are theese tablits you insert but they just help. They dont get rid of it. Plus you can use with AF and AF came full froce today. SO now I cant even get a swab done to see if I have this. So I left a message asking if they can call in some pills for me anyway without testing it cause I had it a month ago and it's the same symptoms. I'm still waiting for a call back. They better cause I can not wait 5 days until AF is over to get relief. I need meds now. Making me wait all day is bad enough. I'm suffering all day today. Regardless now I have to wait until 6 to take the pills even if they do call them in cause Im at work.

Mere - Ughhhh.....That just is cruel.... I really hope the doctor calls you back. This is my personality and DH knows it....I would get mad at him if he said that he didn't want to talk about it. So, he just talks about it with me. I know he calls my mom sometimes because he gets worried that I am going to do something to myself. Which, I don't think I would do..... I also talk to my mom, but sometimes my mom is just as crazy about this as I am. She would give anything for this to happen. My mom is very emotional and cries about everything.
