Re: I'm finally back

Hi Sarah, Thanks for sharing your experiences about adoption. I'm sorry that it sounds like it has been a long and frustrating time. :( We are still hopeful that we might be able to have a baby on our own, but I am trying to be realistic as well. I'm going to broach the subject of IVF meds, as a rou...

Re: Crazy

Christa I'm with you on the idea of just having fun and seeing what happens! My husband and I just started TTC this month. I bought the Taking Charge of Your Fertility book and read about charting and all of that. I decided not to do it because it just seemed too stressful. I don't need anything tha...

Re: I'm finally back

Hi Sarah, I'm glad that you got all of your testing back, and your kidney function is stable which is great. Sounds like we would both have Lovenox in our futures! When do you see your nephrologist? Hopefully you get the green light from that standpoint. It is a tough decision to make. I still have ...

Re: Weight Loss Support Buddies, Spring!

Christa, I did buy the Rice diet book and the cookbook - I found a used copy on Amazon for a good price. The cookbook helped me to come up with some good variety. I also have a couple of vegetarian cooking sites that I log onto regularly for recipes. Since the Rice plan is basically a vegetarian pla...

Lisette, I just saw your posts! I'm so glad that you are home. I'm praying for you that all comes back ok with your 24 hour urine and that you have many more weeks of pregnancy with this little one! Take care and keep us posted as you are able.

Re: 3 years ago today

Oh Melodi I'm so sorry for your loss of little Ana. I really feel for you when you speak about how the world goes on without Ana - and you and your husband are the only ones who remember her. We sometimes feel that way about Alexander. I have been so greatful to find this forum. It is such a support...

Re: Have Just been dealt a blow

Hang in there Lorna! There are lots of reasons why you may have this PAP result. I had the same result about 8 years ago. They did not send me for colposcopy but did repeat additional PAP tests at short intervals and also did HPV testing. All was negative and it has never turned up again. Hope you g...

Re: Until we ttc

Hi Flori, Due to my hypertension we had to be careful with birth control pills, but I was put on the progesterone-only (minipill) pill and it did not affect my BP at all. You do want to make sure that you don't have any clotting disorders. I did just fine on this method and just came off this month ...

Re: Weight Loss Support Buddies, Spring!

Hey Christa I'm on the RICE diet! My best friend's mom came across an article about it and sent it to me. It has done wonders for my BPs and kidney numbers. I'm a Ricer :D
