I wasn't feeling good about a week ago and haven't been on the treadmill since... once I stop it is just so hard to start back up!!! I have to remember to start taking my temps, I was supposed to start today but I totally forgot!!!! Diet starts back up tomorrow... I just need to really really focus!!

I got sick last Saturday and used it as an excuse to miss my daily elliptical workout. Fast forward 7 days and I still haven't gotten back on. I'm still sick, so I guess it's excusable. ;) I chart my temps as well, which has been really interesting for me. Good luck.

I totally agree, and am happy I'm not the only one that feels that way!! I was just hoping it wasn't some kinda of horrible sign of things to come, but it is such a popular song, that i'm going to chalk it up to being just one more thing that upsets me!!!! I went out and get the basal thermometer today... so I guess I will start taking my temp tomorrow and hope that these next few months go by quickly and the weight comes off quickly. I have eating so bad these past few days, but that is kinda to be expected with me. I'll go back to not being hungry in another day or to LOL Right now I'm trying to convince the hubby to get me an elliptical because I like those soooo much more then treadmills.

OMG I just have to say that I heard that song on the radio and started bawling a few weeks ago. I CANNOT listen to it AT ALL! I don't wanna die young, and I did have to bury my child, and it's not fair!! (sorry, that was OT, but I couldn't help but say something!)
Our first son was born and passed in Feb of 2010. Born at 29 weeks due to HELLP and passed due to NEC. We miss him every day. :~(

Our second son was born at 39 weeks gestation in Nov of 2011. No HELLP or pre-e! Took LDA starting at week 12 and went off of it at week 38!

Haha! I'm so glad I'm not the only one! The whole song kinda bothers me, but I have to say that the part that makes me yell at the radio sometimes has to be the "Well I've had just enough time" part. Are you kidding me!?
I am very relieved to have some other people to be "worried nuts" with me though...it's one of the only comforting parts of an otherwise terrifying situation! ;)

OMG every time I hear that song I turn it OFF. Even if I have to turn the radio off. It is haunting me and FREAKING ME OUT!!! Why oh why would someone right that song. ughhhhh just thinking about it makes me scared and upset (yea, I am hormonal right now LOL) Looks like we will all be good support for each other. If we all get preggers around the same day we can be a bunch of worried nuts together to :-)

Looks like I will be joining the group of you girls that will be ttc around the same time as each other :) My husband and I plan to start trying again in October (which will be 8 months since delivery). I just went back on Birth Control in the meantime because I can't handle another pregnancy scare before we start trying, soooo my emotions are a complete crazy mess right now (I'm blaming the estrogen...and that darn "If I Die Young" song that seems to be stalking me!)
I hope we all have very easy ttc experiences and very happy and uneventful pregnancies together! Best of luck to all of you :)

The roller coaster is horrible, and I'm not really sure if it ever goes way... I was so scared to try that it has been 7 years and I got divorced and remarried. So I feel really hopeful that all you guys are going to have GREAT outcomes with healthy babies :-) Me on the other hand... I feel like it's a first pregnancy all over again and my first one went really really bad!! So I'm hopeful for all you guys, from what I have been reading it seems like the odds are in your favor, I know it's still scary. I kinda have always thought to that most of us are on here because of how much preeclampsia effected us... so we must be the more extreme cases. I have come across a few people that have said ohhh I had that, it was no big deal, baby was fine, little bit of bedrest at the end of the pregnancy. Wouldn't have minded being one of those cases so much!

Looks like there's a group of us that will be pregnant/ttc at the same time. How fun.

As much as I am looking forward to when we finally ttc, I am also TERRIFIED. I can't help but think of the worst happening again and I wonder if we'd be able to survive it. Then other days I am convinced that this can't happen twice to someone and I can't wait to get going. Stupid roller-coaster of emotions.

CD1 sucks...sorry for my "French" here.....CD! affects not just me, but also my husband. All of this unsuccessful TTC is affecting us both and we are getting tired of it. It takes so much strength to go through the roller coaster every month. I am technically equipped (fertility monitor), know my body really well by now, all help we can get is worth it! So, temping and watching for other fertility signs is definitely a good thing. It helps me feel in control to some extend.
I am mid-cycle right now....
