Just realized that if I wind up pg this cycle, my due date would be 4/12/07, which is the anniversary of the last day of my natural m/c. I've got some other loss ties to April, so it's not my favorite month. My only hope would be to deliver 3 weeks early like I did with DS and have a March baby. Why did I have to go look? Stupid curiosity and internet...a very bad combination for me. And I'd been doing so well, not thinking about it, not counting days, not evaluating every tiny twitch for possible signs. Sigh...when will I learn?

Awe hun...I don't have anything to add but just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of ya. This whole process is so complex. I find myself playing with pg calculators as well and trying to make TTC plans already and I've yet to even get AF yet!

What a cycle we put ourselves through. I think we all have a month that's bad for us. Unfortunately...since I've had 3 losses I'm starting to run out of "good" months since I seem to get pg as often as quarterly per year!!!
Thank you Claire1977 for my adorable siggy
For the special little one in your life!

4iris- i am totally a gluten for punishment myself...you're not alone! But with April, if you are pg or get pg this cycle, perhaps it will be a turn of the tides for you...a month that was once filled with sorrow will become one of hope? Just a different twist on looking at it, and I know it's hard to see through the clouds of grief but just wanted to put it out there.
Love to you.

I also can't help thinking about the what-if's. I often find myself thinking about when I would be due IF I were to get p/g during a cycle and what other dates (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) are around that time. So, you are definately not alone.

10/31/05 (EDD 5/15/06), 4/17/06 (EDD 11/13/06)
Chemical p/g 1/11/08

I looked too, and mine would be 4/18/2007, I think, because I was totally out of it when af came this month and I'm not sure what day it was! Now there is an indication of how far off ttc I've gotten. When Astrid asked about cycles on the pg loss board, I had to go get a calendar and count the days (and guess the LMP), because I had no clue!
Kathryn, I hope April turns out to be a great month for you, whatever happens.

Thanks everyone. I'm avoiding the calculators from now on until I have confirmation that I need one.

Sara and Norina, thanks for the wishes for a better April!
