        • Feeling better, actually... thanks for asking. I had a rough few months after the miscarriage. We'd lost my grandpa earlier that year, my husband is out of work... life just kind of got the better of me for a while. But I'm happy I stick with PB-style eating because if nothing else feeling physically good helped me keep a grip on the emotional stuff, or at least not let it really spiral out of control. I also picked up a bunch of my old physical therapy exercises because my back and hip really started hurting again. 90lbs later I found that I have a totally different relationship with those exercises and how my body moves in space, and I'm even more glad to have another chance at my first pregnancy and being able to do some serious deep core development work ahead of time.

          Anyway... how are you???

          • Sorry to hear about your grandfather, Mixie. My thoughts are with you and your family.

            I can relate to the rough patch: last semester was a bit of a blur for me after the miscarriage. I'm doing pretty well. I got off track eating-wise with the holidays, but am trying to get back on it. I'm suppose to go in for IVF in March, but I have this tooth that is still bothering me (even after root canal). I have to get that figured out beforehand as if its infected, I need to wait.

            • How is everyone doing? Did you get your tooth sorted dmc?

              • Impatiently waiting to take an OTC test. We went all out this month with ovulation predictor kits and tracking CM and...just nuts. Doc had said not to stress and to give it another 6 months of just having fun before we got worried but, dangit, I'm tired of having fun with no results. So, call this month the pee-on-strips month, LOL!!!!!

                Anyhow, I'm suddenly craving red meat, salt and feeling giddy. Still have a couple days before the OTC test might show something but I have my fingers crossed.

                How are y'all doing?

                  Ditto. I could take a test probably tomorrow, but really trying to wait a few more days. Driving me crazy.

                  I actually skipped ovulation testing this month, needed a break. Hubby was out of town on business for two weeks right in the middle of my cycle, home only for 2 nights, so I figured it was a good month to not track as there was nothing I could do about timing.

                  I have had some odd symptoms this week, but every time I start to think "wow, I have never seen that before, wonder if maybe just maybe I am prego", bam, my period hits. So I am trying to not analyze them (and pretty much failing). Annoying body is annoying.

                  I told myself if I wasn't prego last month we would start seeing a fertility specialist rather then just my more homeopathic primary who has done some initial stuff and the acupuncturist. BUT, I held off yet again. I am on month 5 of progesterone supplements and month 7 of acupuncture. My cycle consistency and period has continued to improve every month, so I am trying to give things a bit more time. After my 37th birthday last month I started to get more antsy again.

                  Hope everyone is doing okay or maybe someone has some good news out there

                    LOL I know what you mean. I keep thinking...ok NORMALLY at this stage of the cycle I'd be craving chocolate and sugar and having PMS mood swings. So...so...so...since I'm craving something different that MUST be good news, right? LOL.

                    *sigh* Patience. NOT my strong suit.

                      • Took an OTC test and it came up negative. I was bouncing between sniffles and growls when I noticed it wasn't one of those special "test one week early!" tests. So....still have my fingers crossed!!

                        • Bookmarking. We're going to start trying for the first time in the next few months. Still getting ready for the attempt (taking my folate and watching what I eat), but looking forward to it, too!

                          • Argh....6 days late and 2 negative tests and its driving me bonkers. My cycle used to run long so normally I wouldn't care, but since starting progesterone 5 months ago my cycles have been extremely consistent. I had some extra stress last month, so could very well be a factor, but that isn't helping with my mental state. :P

                            • I know what you mean Meadow! I'm trying to not use the last OTC test and obsessively counting days. The last six months my cycle has been so wonky I don't know what day to start counting as "late", what would technically be the 1st day, or what may be the 1st day if I account for the last 6 months of weirdness? ugh.

                              Fingers crossed for you!! (and toes and eyes, lol!)

                              • Good luck ladies. I keep popping back in to check and hope for good news.

                                I've reached 12 weeks now. Seems like this one is going to stick around. Just had nuchal scan though and hoping the results are good. I'm 39 so risk is higher. Funny how you get over one hurdle just to worry about the next one.
