    Sorry to the lovely ladies who have had the witch show already

    AFM only at CD13. Still another 2 weeks till I usually O. Started taking voted so hoping that may help my long cycles so hoping to O a little earlier. Starting regular BDing just in case. This week has gone so fast so far so fx it continues that way. Haha I always thought I was a patient person until we started TTC.

    Its so true how the whole subject of trying is taboo until the second trimester. Really leaves us all a bit out in the cold if we're not blessed straight away. It's so odd how supposed real friends just don't discuss it - I get a bit offended at times when I find out 13 weeks into a close friend's pregnancy. It really makes me doubt the friendship.

    AFM, only CD3, so ages to go and the fun part of BD yet. I had a happy thought yesterday - now I'm very much not pregnant, but later this month I may be. How cool is that?! Could apply to any one of us.
    Try to keep in mind that your friends may not be sharing their pregnancy because they're genuinely afraid of loss. I imagine this pregnancy not really telling people until almost 20 weeks because after a loss last year at 20 weeks I'm pretty petrified of it happening again. I learned through my loss that pregnancy is such a personal thing, people are often going through quite a lot that you have no idea about (IVF, multiple losses, etc). Them not telling other friends has nothing to do with the quality of friendship, it's just a very personal thing between them and their DH. So many people don't understand loss or TTC for ages that it often feels safer to just not say anything, I've had some really close friends say some doozies to me about my loss! There are two girls I imagine telling straight away but that's only because they've had losses as well, we actually were only acquaintances until I lost our baby, then they reached out to me and now they're two of my biggest supporters. One is about 20 weeks pregnant and still hasn't told many people.

    Sorry that came off as a lecture, just wanted to give some insight!

    AFM: I couldn't wait until the 6th to test so tested this morning. BFN. I know I shouldn't be upset since my period isn't even due yet, but I couldn't help it. Trying not to worry. Last time I tested on the day af was due and the line was super faint so I know no line coming up 4/5 days before doesn't mean I'm not, I just really wanted to see it . I'll try and wait until the 6th now.

    Please don't doubt your friendship. I don't plan on telling anyone, parents aside, until the 2nd trimester when I fall pregnant again. It's too hard watching your friends feeling sorry for you when you miscarry.

    I agree. My mc we told the world, and a week later lost bub. Some people (extended family) we didn't see- but were told by other family members....

    My great aunt congratulated me on my pregnancy in the supermarket, 5 weeks after mc'ing. It was very awkward since I currently had af!

    mum has asked me (yesterday even) when I get utd again to please tell her when we know.
    She will have ds while we go to appointments, and bring him to scans with us. My parents will be the only 2 apart from us to know.

    I will prob tell me mum and my best friend but that's it til 12wks. Only a few ppl knew the other times but lots of ppl know we're trying now coz I got sick of ppl asking me when we're going to start a family so I explained as I don't think mc should b a taboo subject.

    I actually only think I'll tell the two girlfriends that I've become closer to since my loss since they know exactly how I'm feeling, they have gone through it all before. I won't tell my parents, they're grief was so immense when we lost our baby I wouldn't be able to cope with it again. Nobody knows we're trying. I'm incredibly open about our loss and really determined to make people understand what it's like, trying to take away the taboo, but I have such fears that if people know we're trying they'll think I'm 'fixed' or 'over' the loss of our baby, that we've forgotten her, which is so far from the truth,

    So after my huge tantrum yesterday.. I uninstalled BH (so I don't keep getting notifications and little reminders to make me check it obsessively). Alas, I am here... on the browser. You girls are too nice to leave.

    I also want to keep tabs on Funchu, Blotched and ChannyV as they are the first girls I became familiar with and i'm still fx for their BFP!

    AFM I actually had EWCM yesterday (never really had it before. I came off the pregnancy vitamins as a result and i'm only taking Megafol) after I threw the toys out of cot (bad pun, I know) and today I got a smiley on the digi.
    Will BD tonight and maybe tomorrow then just try to forget about it.

    Thanks for dealing my my negativity. We're all in the same boat and it's hard on us all.
    Cheers,

    jen
