    I'm excited/anxious/nervous to get the ball rolling again. I started the medroxyprogesterone on Saturday morning, so today is day 3 of 5 of that medication. AF should come within a week of completing it. Then we're just going to do the Femara/Letrozole since that got us a BFP on our last cycle. We're hoping it will be quick again since the BFP came within 4 months of consistent O once I was taking the Femara and increased dose of Metformin.

    I'm scared to test and not see a BFP, but I'm terrified of seeing that BFP again. The thought of another miscarriage is disheartening in the least. This whole TTC thing is way too stressful! What really sucks is I know I'm not going to be able to enjoy a pregnancy, especially in the first trimester. I'm going to be paranoid about losing it. It's going to be more stressful than exciting, I think.

    Here's to lots of Thanksgiving and Christmas miracles! And to full-term pregnancies!

    Yay! I totally understand about the nervousness thing. I'm feeling way relaxed after deciding to try natural for awhile and then possibly explore other options if we need to. But the thought of another m/c is just too much! I will be like you though when I finally get a BFP - I'm going to be so stressed out.
    Me(26)DH(29)DD(3.5) TTC 2nd- 15 mos, 1st round of clomid 50mg - BFN, 2nd - MC, 3rd- BFN. Tried naturally 6mos, 4th round 100mg Clomid - BFN, 5th round Clomid 100mg - on 2ww, test 10/26

    It's terrible! I want to savor every moment and enjoy it like I always thought I'd be able to. I'm going to be a wreak!

    understand completely specially since i had 2 miscarriages back to back. I think once we get out of the 1st tri we will be able to enjoy our pregnancies a whole lot more. Its ok to be nervous that is a normal part of pregnancy even for women not in our positions. Well good luck to us all hopefully this holiday season will bring peace and joy to every one of us.
