I'm glad you are getting some help. The endocrinologist should be able to test for all sorts of stuff and give you a better answer as to why the miscarriages are occuring. Yay, hope you have a great appointment and you get a sticky bean soon!

Hey Ash!! Just making my way back through the journals....

Glad to hear you've got a fab new doctor and a great RE! I hope you get all the answers you need so that you can get that super sticky bean.

I've got my first appt in 7 days... so I'm a combination of excited and edgy!!

I hope you get that sticky bean really soon... So glad to hear married life is still treating you well!!

I've been so bad about visiting the journals, and look- I missed a lot!! I'm so happy that you have found a new doctor, and I'm SO glad that someone is actually listening to you now!! It's definitely something that they need to take seriously!

Keep us posted on the doctor updates-- it's certainly not boring!! If it is, then my whole journal is full of boredom! I'm keeping you in my thoughts, and I can't wait to celebrate that super sticky bean with you!!

I think the RE is the right place to be cause they can run all the more intricate bloodwork/testing to determine what is causing the eggies not to stick...
I really hope that they give you complete answers and even better solutions

Hey Ashley! Not sure if I've ever posted on your journal but I've definitely been stalking it for awhile now! That's so great that you are finally getting the help that you need! And that your doctor is willing to answer all your questions. Just because they know all this info on TTC doesn't mean we do! and we want our questions answered! Also, i looked at your wedding pics and everything was absolutely gorgeous! esp you in that amazing dress!! Good luck at your appt!

Glad your back Nikki!! THanks for checking in on me! Married life IS still treating me well, its amazing!!! You have an appointment with an RE? (Sorry just a LITTLE behind in journal stalking! ) I hope you get some answers!! It feels like everyone is taking the next step towards getting help...which is a wonderful thing, but scary at the same time (for me at least!)

You HAVE missed a lot Jackie! Shame on you! Just kidding!!! Yea, im really excited, but REALLY REALLY scared. Im just so scared that their gonna find something really wrong, that will cause us not to be able to conceive. I have a friend here on JM who went through almost exactly what we have gone through and then her husband was diagnosed with a balanced translocation which is now my biggest fear. And she has MTHFR. Scary stuff.

Well, thank you very much for stalking me!!! Hope to see you around more often!!




I talked with the RE yesterday and I cant get in until November 30th That sucks! I guess its okay though...I just dont know what to do in the meantime. TTC and hope not to get pregnant and have another loss, hold off and wait until we get some answers??!!! Im so torn in two ways, on one side I have this feeling that if I can just get pregnant I can make it work if I try harder I can make my bean stick which makes me want to try (which i know is just nonsense I didnt do anything wrong any other time I did absolutely everything possible to have a healthy baby). Then on the other hand I dont want to go through the same thing again which makes me want to wait. Then again I also think, maybe it was just bad luck three times in a row and the next time will be fine which makes me want to TTC. Ugh...I dont know what to do!!! What would you guys do? My OB says there is no harm in trying if I want to just of course make sure to take prenatals and baby aspirin (in case I do have the clotting issue, she says it doesnt hurt if you dont have it, but it would help if i do) I dont know what to do....

I have a little journal at work that I started just to be able to show the doctor what is happening...when and if we have to figure out what's wrong. I don't have one on here though.....
I loved the month of September for our wedding! I don't know where you are but it was PERFECT weather here...we started dating in Sept too so it just seemed right

Haha, honeymoon stage is over! We have been together for so long AND lived together that it really doesn't feel very different! LOL! Maybe when we have a baby it will seem more real

Wow, that is too funny! We have been together 5 years and lived together 4 years and 10 months of that time!! What a coincidence!

That is so sweet that you guys feel like that I do kinda feel closer to him but he's still a big dork!

How's the baby making going?

That is funny!! As far as baby making ... Im just trying to decide what we should do ... wait until after we meet with the RE (weve had some "fertility" problems) but if youve read my journal you already know that! But I cant decide if we should wait to meet with him and figure out whats wrong first...or start trying and risk having another loss... I dont know I cant decide theres bad parts of both decisions

That is a tough decision....when is your appointment? If it's not too far away then I would wait it out but if it's not for another month...that might be harder.

I haven't been through a loss but I'm not sure if I would be as strong as you are with a couple in my past!

Good luck with your decision

That sucks that you have to wait another month to see the RE. Of course in the grand scheme of things, it's only another month! Good luck with whatever you decide to do until then.

Ashley...I'm so sorry I have been a bad journal visitor...and you have been having so many exciting things happening!!! I am so excited that you have found a dr. that will hear you concerns and help you through it!!! It is hard that you have to wait another month before you can get in though. TTC is definitely a decision that you and Jason are going to have to make. If you think you could chance that perhaps you may have another loss...I know that it would definitely be hard to have to go through that again. Definitely you guys should discuss it, and I know us girls here will stand behind you no matter what decision you make...and we will all be praying that if you do decide to continue to TTC till your appointment that you will have a super sticky bean!!!

Hey Ashley! So glad that you have finally found someone who can and is willing to help you! I don't know what I would do if Iwas you?? I agree you and DH need to weigh your options and decide what is best for you. That being said, I think that once the RE runs some tests, you will be preggo with a sticky bean very soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Halloween

We are just going to continue to go with the flow. Not preventing, but not going crazy over bd'ing, cm, opks, testing...etc. So im pretty sure im 5DPO today (obviously that is not 100% certain but I think its either that day (CD14) or the day after (CD15), so I need to keep that in mind when it comes time for AF to be due. The baby bug is really hitting me hard here lately, its all I can think about and talk about all over again. There was actually a point where I just wanted to be a married couple for a while and not even think about ttc, but thats way out the door now...I dont want to wait!

Well I hope you are blessed with your miracle while you aren't trying like crazy! It'd make the surprise that much better!! I'm with you on the baby bug thing- ughhh, it's taking over my life (ok, it has for a long time now) but even worse now!
