Another reason I'm MIA

I finally have internet again! Hooray!

First off, thank you all so much for your words of encouragement and support once again! It always amazes me that I have so many good friends that I've never met in real life ;-) What did we do before the internet? Seriously!?
Second, I'm feeling much, much better and we are ready to try, try again. I have a m/c follow up with my doc on the 21st in which I will talk to him about progesterone supps. He put me on those with B as a precaution and I wonder if I need to go that route again? I also am concerned that, while my body seems to be working correctly at the moment (which it did for a couple months after I came off the BCP before), it may go back to being stupid and anovulatory again. I think they may be doing some bw to make sure my hcg is back down to 0 as well. They did want Batman and I to take a break this month and use back up BC, but to be honest we won't. If I had waited a couple more days to test, I never would have known it was a mc so I guess I don't see the point in putting TTC on hold another month. Do you? Am I/ are we crazy? I also figure we got preggo with B the cycle after mc, so it can't be all bad to keep trying, right? Plus we don't really do condoms. And really, what else is there that's not going to completely screw up my body even more?

In other news and on a happier and brighter note (and the whole reason you haven't heard from me lately)- Batman and I decided that since my IL are on a two week vacation in the Caribbean (so we could stay at their place), we would replace our flooring NOW instead of when we get our tax return. So we picked out flooring last Monday, started renovating and removing our current flooring (yes, we are doing the removal ourselves) that night, and have been busy every day getting ready for the installation- They started that TODAY! I am so, so very excited to have brand new floors in our house. They were disgusting when we moved in almost 8 years ago, so you can imagine what they look like now! The install should be done by Friday and we should be moved back in next weekend.

I've taken a few pics of the before and during. Now I'm just waiting for the after. And I'm hoping this makes me like my house again, since we won't be able to move for at least another 2-3 years.  Here's to hoping...

Hope all is well for y'all!

Congrats on the new floors! It's always fun remodeling and updating a part of your home. I'm sure you're going to enjoy the finished product and I'm certainly looking forward to seeing before & after pics.

I definitely don't see a point in putting the next cycle on hold. I know many, many people (yourself included) who have successfully gotten pregnant immediately following a loss. The way I see it, if your body isn't recovered, nothing will happen anyway. There's no harm in trying.

I hope your upcoming doctor appointment goes well and brings you some answers. Definitely give the progesterone a shot. There's no harm in taking it and perhaps that'll help things along.

Thinking of you! Good luck!

So happy to hear that you're doing better and you guys are ready to try again! You're absolutely NOT crazy. There's no way I'd be taking a break or using back up BC in your situation...heck, like you said, you got your beautiful princess right after a m/c so what could it hurt?.

I can't wait to see the pics of the new floors and hear all the tales of the removal - the DIY stories are usually some of the funniest to hear. Congrats on all your hard work. I'm sure they'll look beautiful!

I don't think it's a big deal to TTC again. It's not like you had a D&C or anything and you're right, if you didn't test you would have never known. Good luck!!!

The new floors are going to be so great. Nothing makes a place feel new again like flooring and paint =) Can't wait to see the before, during and after pics!

I'm sooooooooooooooo sorry about your loss! I'm really thinking of you and sending you HUGS! I was sad with my chem preg a few mths back and I can relate. Thinking of you so much! I'm sorry it happened.

Yay~ Congrats on the new floors! Can't wait to see the pics. :)

I'm just now seeing this; sorry for your loss. :( Definitely with the no-point-in-waiting camp here as well... had you not tested you would never have known.
