well I guess we are going to bite the bullet. We have a Dr's apointment tomorrow to take out my IUD so we can TTC. Hopefully this will go better than the last two pregnancies. I have changed Dr's and Husband is more aware of risks and things to look for this time. WIsh me luck. I don't have high expectations just a goal of 34 weeks gestation and no helicopter rides this time around. First pregnancy was 39weeks with pree and emergency c section. second pregnancy was 32 weeks with pree and emergency c section. Hoping less emergencies and just non stress pregnancy. Any good thoughts and prayers appreciated. The moms and dads on this site seem so genuine and wonderful. I'm glad that I found this forum to help me through the next chapter in my life.

Will definitely be thinking and praying for you! Good luck at the doctors and with the whole TTC process. Baby making is the fun part, but the waiting is the sucky part!

well Poop. Our apointment got canceled. The Dr. had emergency surgery (which I understand) and he is out of the office next week so my new apointment is not till the 16th. and to top it all off he isn't going to be delivering babies anymore so i'm his pt till I get pregnant and then I will transfer to one of the other Dr.s in the practice. Really frustrated at this point.
