Hello, I came across your post that you used to Clomid to get pregnant. Did the doctor prescribe Clomid because you had irregular periods? - I am trying to find out if Clomid is right for me. I am 41 and had 3 miscarriages. I have a 4 year old. My FSH level is 12. My doctor has not suggested to prescribe anything for me. Not sure what to do. I do not want to do IVF and egg donor. That would be my last resort. Please reply.  Thanks, Mino

Okay Deb! Seriously you are like one of the sweetest people I know! Today, Scott came home from lunch he was tired and was having a bad Monday. He was carrying the mail (which never comes this early) and in it was your beautiful poem. I opened it and smiled and gave it to him! He smiled and said, "That is really sweet"! After that his mood changed and he looked like he was ready to tackle the second half of the day! What a perfect day for this wonderful poem you have created for our family! You are such an amazing person, and your heart always seems to pour out love for others! I wish I had cool mail to send you!! Maybe one day something will scream DEB!!! Thank you so much!

Hello prevatt,
Stories like yours give me the strength to go ahead. I'm 34 and my FSH level is in 16. The doctor gave me no hopes. Did you went through IVF to conceive?

thanks,

Tania

It is so nice to talk to others who have gone through this kind of thing.  It is great to have a reminder that no matter what happens - it is possible to pull through and get right back up on the horse again!

LOL - you are right, i still have a few good years left on me.  I will just assume that all is going well until I am told otherwise.

Thank you for the encouragement.  I am feeling MUCH more positive these days.  It is SO beyond my control at this point, that I just have to let go of it all and trust that the right thing will happen.  I think the combination of AF type cramps and morning sickness is rather amusing.  I am looking at the spotting and cramping as my poor old uterus's way of complaining that i'm finally putting him (yes - my uterus is a male, Ive decided) to work... after 37 years of lounging around!

Have a very happy monday!

Thank you so much for your advice on my US. I've decided that I'm not going to worry until I need to.  So far theres no indication that I should be worrying - its just a little bit scary.  Thank heavens your friend was patient and followed her instincts and thank you for sharing that story!

I wish you could come too! We are actually going to New Orleans for the weekend. That is where Cooper was in the Hospital. It is about two hours from home, so we are doing a big fun trip for Cruzy!!! Thanks for always thinking of me and my Angel!

Wow, Poor Gavin! How is he doing now? Cruz seems to be doing better but last night we had to take in a stool sample because it looked like grape jelly! Never ending! By the way how is your nephew?

Hey Deb! I put the cardinal in the living room next to my other cardinals by Cooper's picture! We do put up a tree, but that is way to long to not have it on display! I am so glad you look for Cooper Birds!!!!

Cruz is doing great! He is crawling full speed, trying to stand and now clapping when we say "yay"!!!! He is so cute and I love him dearly!

I haven't thought about Clomid...but I will talk to my MD about it after the HSG test. It's weird...I don't even feel like I'm going to start my period, and I'm having a LOT of discharge. Not normal at all. But I would think an HPT would show positive if I was pregnant. I guess your periods/cycle can get a little whacked after tubal reversal, huh?

Just took a pg test...negative. I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant. Bummer. I guess we'll try again next month. I was hoping for a Christmas baby.

Thank you, Deb. It is really rough...but we aren't ready to give up. BTW, my temp is high again today - 98.2. Keeping my fingers crossed...

No, no signs of my period so far. Some weird lower-back spasms, but no cramps. Sensitive lower-stomach, but I think that could still be from surgery. Allergy season is here, so I'm sneezing a lot, and it's pretty painful near my hip bones. I took a HPT this morning and it was negative. I'm on the same cycle day as when I got a positive with Ian...but I guess every pregnancy is different, right? I dunno...I'm not holding out much hope. And, honestly, my husband and I have been fighting so much lately that I'm not sure I SHOULD get pregnant. Everyone is so supportive, and were so generous in helping us financially...I almost feel like I'd be letting everyone down. But things aren't good right now at home.  :::sigh::: Life *****.

I'm supposed to get the hsg next cycle...but it's considered fertility treatment, so my insurance only pays half ($200). My temp dropped some today, so that *****. I took an hpt (I probably shouldn't have) and, of course, it was negative. So, we'll see...

Love ya,

I'm hoping so...it was 98.1 this morning, so high again. I'm trying not to get my hopes up - because, I mean, what are the chances I would get pregnant so fast? We weren't even technically SUPPOSED to be trying yet. And we only had sex once when I was ovulating. I might die of a heart attack if I'm actually pregnant. LOL. Love ya, Deb.

The first one for sure!!!! It gets easier everytime (so I am told). When we were in the hospital with Coop, there was little girl there named Hope, who was going for her last one and she was in and out within less then two weeks!

Hey hon.  Doing really good, although still adjusting a bit to our new life.  I am pretty sure I am the happiest women in the world right now, even though he does not sleep longer then an hour or so at a time.  He is cluster feeding, but it's good.  He is really packing on the weight and starting to fill out his little sleepers.  He is really filling out all those wrinkles...growing into his skin I guess..lol.  He had a Dr.'s appointment and was pronounced healthy!  I just can't get enough of him and the day's are flying by.  Warren has turned out to be an absolutely amazing dad!!  He happily takes on as much as he can after work hours...changing diapers, snuggling him, we bathe him together.  I love being a family.  Now, my house is a mess...lol.  But it can wait.  Love ya honey!!

It was actually so weird Deb.  I was on the phone (standing), and felt perfectly fine.  Set the phone down, felt dizzy so sat down and boom!  Total black out.  For about 15 minutes afterward I couldn't properly focus my eyes and had a raging headache and nausea.  I called my OB's office and they told me to head to L&D.  Called Warren, he came and got me right away and off we went.  They ran all kinds of tests from blood sugar, bloodpressure, even an ECG.  I am fine.  Ryder is fine as well..they monitored his heart and movements for about 1/2 an hour, and he is great!  They released me after about 2 hours.  The OB I saw at L&D says it happen, not infrequently, and often there is no real explanation.  I hadn't had that happen before, so it scared the heck out of me.

Its not until 3:15 today.  I am still a bit freaked out over fainting yesterday, so I am glad I am seeing her today.  I'll let you know what she says....it would be nice if there was a little bit of dilation....38 1/2 weeks...wow, can you believe it?

Man, you are one dedicated Momma!!! I can't wait until he can take whole milk!!!! Then that means no more bottles, no more pumping, and no supplemental formula!!!!! I must say, I am very proud of you!!!!!!!

Thank you for being so encouraging! I know supplementing is not the end of the world, but man it sure did hurt. I made it a whole week without it his first week but after the weekend of him taking all bm, I had no choice. I am going to continue to give him all bm on the weekend for sure though!!!!!! I hope I can do this for another couple more months! How is that sweet little Gavin?

He seems to really be enjoying it! I LOVE his teacher she is awesome!!!! The only down side is I can't pump enough so I had to start supplementing. The week I go back he increases a ounce and I have to pump less. So, now he takes 4oz of bm and 2oz of formula in his 4 daycare bottles. The two at home are all breastmilk!
