I haven't posted much at all lately, but I still regularly check in to see how you ladies are doing, who's getting their BFPs , etc.

It's been a little over a month since my m/c, and I'm doing fine. I bled lightly for about 25 days! After the initial grief, that was probably the worst part.

I still have my moments where I feel sad, and I still desperately want to be pregnant and have a baby, so it isn't easy waiting. The doctor recommended to wait three months, and even though advice varies, I'm going to follow it. I'm due for my first AF in a little less than 3 weeks. Two more and I'll be right back with you girls TTC.

I planned to lose some weight during this 3-month period, but that's not going too well so far. I'm hoping to get serious about it soon. Because of Hurricane Ophelia, I'll have a few days off from school, which doesn't help. In addition to water and batteries, we bought Doritos, cookies, crackers, and snack cakes. Not good.

Teaching is going great so far. I have really good kids this year. Honestly, it keeps me so busy that I don't have time to worry or feel bad about my m/c. I can't imagine dealing with morning sickness right now, so if there is a silver lining to my m/c, I guess that's it.

I hope you all get your BFPs soon. It will be sad when I come back if no one is left , but I'll make new TTC friends, I'm sure.

Send me some cycle dust so that I can join you again soon. In fact, pray for short cycles! I'm hoping I'll be back to TTC around Christmas.

It is sooo good to hear from you. I was thinking of you a couple of days ago. I'm glad to hear you are doing good and recuperating at least physically. I'm always paranoid posting with you...lol.... grammer and such. I am a nurse, we have our own language and it is not "correct" at all lol. Please check in every now and then.
On break this month taking BCP for cyst!

Aw sweetie, I'm so sorry for everything you've gone through/are going through. Even if I get a BFP before you're back ttc, I will be sure to stop in and see how you're doing. It's great that you have good kids in school, and I think that it's admirable that you have set a weight loss goal for yourself in amidst of everything else that is going on in your life. I wish you the best of luck with that, and am sending you cycle and willpower dust!

Hehe...I still haunt the TTC boards. I've said it before: it's where the action is!!!

Glad to hear that everything is coming back together for you and that you and DH have come to an agreement about when it's good for you to start trying again.

Hooray for teachers! DH wants to be a high school teacher...I mean, REALLY wants it. Those of you who teach and really want it and really pay attention to your students make all the difference. Congrats on getting of to a great school year start!

You guys are awesome! I've really missed talking to all of you.

I felt a little like an outsider for a while, so I think I needed the time away from the boards.

But I still probably won't post too often, because it just makes this 3-month wait harder, if that makes any sense. I'm better off not thinking about peeing on sticks, charting temps, checking cervical position, and all of that fun stuff. I think I sometimes like to pretend that I never tried to conceive, I never got pregnant, I never m/c. If I can just concentrate on the present, the future will get here faster.

By the way, DH and I are using condoms as protection, and I wouldn't be terribly upset if there was a "condom-malfunction," if you know what I mean. But who am I kidding, we used condoms for years when we first started dating and never had any problems. So I'll just have to wait the full three cycles.

Christmas will be here before I know it, and hopefully I'll get my BFP as quickly as I did last time. It's just so hard in the meantime to respond to comments like, "So it's your turn....When are you guys going to have one?" It's even harder to deal with news of folks in the community getting pregnant.

It's different somehow to see all of you get your BFPs. I'm genuinely happy for you. I can't help but feel a little jealous of the people down the street. Am I crazy? I don't know, it just hard to see all of the reminders.

Anyways, thanks for all of the kind words and well-wishes. It really means a lot.

Thanks for posting! It is great to hear from you and know you are doing ok. I understand how you feel about the m/c. I had one too in July, so I know first hand how badly they hurt. I will definately be sending you short cycle dust, and also some healing dust for your emotions.

Can't wait until you are back here in full TTC swing!

It's so good to hear from you, and to hear that you are getting better!!

I hope the hurricane doesn't do to much damage, I haven't heard much about that one, so I'm not to sure of who's actually being affected by it.

I'm so glad school is going well!! I'm a substitute teacher this year, and I'm hoping to get pregnant real soon so I won't have to deal with morning sickness while teaching. This year if I don't feel well, I can just say 'no' to a job and not have to worry. I'm hoping to be back into full teaching by next year.

Good Luck with everything, and Christmas will be here before you know it!! (ONLY 103 SHOPPING DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!)

Thanks to jaidynsmumfor my adorable siggy and w000 for awesome blinkies !
