I can totally relate to everything you all have been saying. I am in the same situation!!! I am so glad to hear you got the go ahead to TTC again. It is so scary to take that leap of faith, but we have to look at even how far we have come already. I know after I lost Isaac I couldn't imagine going through it all again and I was so scared to try again. I am still so scared, but I am also determined at the same time. Like all of you I just don't want to regret not trying again. We have tentatively set October to start trying again, but I will admit that the last few days I have been thinking about just going for it now instead of waiting!!! My DH even said that to me last night....but I just wasn't totally ready to commit to officially TTC right now!!! I know I will be ovulating in another week so this cycle isn't totally lost yet....but I just don't know.

Anyways I hope that we all can get through the next pregnancy together....and be crazy together, since I know more than anything I don't want to be alone going through this!!!!

Best of Luck Everyone!!!!

Val, I know what you mean about being scared because you dont know if you will make it. MFM pushed for me to adopt.. but I took a looooong time thinking about it and I couldnt imagine life without my own biological baby. Expecially since I had Shane.. to be able to see my own child that was a creation of my husband and I... We got a taste of just how much you could love a child and how happy they make you before they're even born. I decided I needed to try again... I know it can happen.. it's happeend before and now Im on medications to prevent and doctors that are watching very closly. I find alot of comfort in that.

I wish you LOTS of good luck and stregnth to get through your TTC journey.

~~~HUGS~~~

Val,

First let me say YAYAYAYAYAYA...you get to be my TTC buddy....and Sam too....COME ON SEPTEMBER!!!!

Okay, now for the more serious stuff. I know what you mean and how you feel. I think I want this next baby so badly that....oh, I don't know what I think or feel sometimes. I just know I want another baby. I think my family is much more afraid than I. They are really afraid that I will get really sick and not make it also. But to tell you the honest truth, I can either fear it and let it paralyze me or I can take the leap of faith and hope and pray for the best. This is our determining pregnancy. If it goes well, we will try for another, but if it doesn't we will start the adoption process.

I have played out all the scenarios in my head. Everything from a normal pregnancy (Well, my new norm - Lovenox, folgard, baby asa, bed rest, bp meds, TONS of doctor's appointments and such) all the way through to another loss. My doc thinks I will be in between - as long as I have my baby and my life in the end I can handle whatever else comes my way. We do know that we will be watched oh so painstakingly careful. That gives me a lot of reassurance.

Hang in there. When you decide the time is right then the time will be right. And we will be here every step of the way. Frightening though it will be, I pray that it will be worth it.

I won't tell LOL, poor guy!
When we were ttc last time for a short period of time he was on paxil and that was soooo not a good thing, it numbed everything. He kept joking he could have been a "porn star" on that stuff.
When we first started ttc last time he thought it was really weird that I would take my temp in the morning and then depending on what my chart said demand babydancing. I think it got used to it after awhile though.
Tonight he was like sooooooo, umm can we start trying... I was like nice try buddy, I'm only on cd 9 so weither we are starting this cycle or not you are not in luck tonight!

Val,
One of the main reasons dh and I decided to have my tubal reversal (had them tied in 2000) was because IF I had never tried to have my own baby, I would be looking back on life and regretting it - so with that comes hurdles I need to get over. LOL on the "pull and pray" method...I battle the opposite with my dh. Due to having my tubal reversal I have been testing using OPK's for like the past 9 mos and just had an HSG (dye test) and he has to get his "boys" checked (even though he has a 17 and 7 yr old) - and doing the baby dance feels so scheduled and (ssshh don't tell him I told you) but this was a fertile weekend and one the most important day - things just wouldn't work. Frustrating, but we are trying to over come all our obstacles.

(((HUGS))) I kind of feel like that too. Like if I don't try I will have to live the rest of my life knowing that I didn't try again, and I just gave up. I really need some kind of "sign" you know?
Hubby just informed me that he doesn't want to "not not" try anymore, I think he is just being lazy and is tried of having to use the pull and pray meathod to be honest....MEN!
