Some of our posts have 10x the views as replies... so... who's out there reading? Tell us about yourselves and why are you lurking? Don't be shy, we don't bite (and contrary to belief in some DDC's.. we don't rub off either )

Guilty. I've been lurking for months to see how you all are. I gues I never commented because I didn't know where to jump in. It's been a long while since I've posted.

I'm around! I've been mostly in the TTCAL board. Trying to look forward, though it's rough sometimes. Today I went to the beach, and all I could see were happy families.

I'm here. I don't post much. I'm struggling myself with my last two losses. My last visit to my OB I sat and balled my eyes out. I felt like a fool, a grown woman, approaching 40, crying to a doctor because none of this makes sense.

Coming here and reading stories of loss after loss drains me of what little hope I muster. I don't see much point in trying for another, if I'm guaranteed to end up losing it. So I tend to stay away.

I lurk mostly as well. I don't want to be the one that inadvertently makes people upset by my pregnancy. That is why when I do respond a lot of times, I turn my siggy off. I try to respond to threads, but can't seem to post original topics.

Even I can't come up with an original topic these days. We've done everything, and we've done it over and over because there are really so few of us.

Just a suggestion. We should have a "What made me happy today" thread (or something like that). I've noticed that a lot of people are having a rough time and maybe a reminder of the joys in our lives would help. Sometimes when I remind myself what is going right in my life, it makes it easier to deal with what is going wrong.

*hugs* Jen

I don't know what will happen if I ever do get pregnant and stay pregnant... I don't know if I will cling to the board like a life line, or if I will run screaming in the other direction and never look back.

Not feeling confident that I'll ever actually stay pregnant anyway.

I really am struggling with that idea too. I have no idea how I will cope if I ever manage to get out of the first trimester.
