    Re: August TTC


    BFN for me.  I tested Thursday of last week and again this morning.  Patiently waiting for AF to come so that we can try again.

    As soon as AF comes I'm going to breakdown and order the OPK strips.  So much for easing into TTC :)

    If you haven't done the strips it ain't over 'til AF shows up.  Your cycle can be unpredictable for a very long time after giving birth.  But, regardless, best wishes, clc!

    Sorry clc! Good luck on this next cycle! I was just trying to figure out my cycle but I tried an opk when I saw some EWCM and it was positive so... There's something about ttc that makes it tough not to go all out, huh?

    WPP - the cycle I got pg last time I was taking mucinex.  Not sure it helped but it can't hurt.  I'll add that to the mix next cycle.

    Day 33 over here and still BFN.  Ugh, let's go AF!

    Clc - I hope you get either a bfp or AF soon! So frustrating to be waiting around.

    Kar - I guess you were right about it being possible to get pregnant before AF officially returns. {#emotions_dlg.smile}

    Re: August TTC

    Thanks everyone! DS is almost a year (next week, I can't even believe it). It took about a year to conceive him so I am in absolute shock that it happened this quickly. By my estimate I'm probably just about 4 weeks now. I figured with how breastfeeding causes short LP's I would've gotten AF by Monday or so and when I tested it was a definite bfp immediately. The thing that really stinks is DH changed jobs and my doctors/midwives don't accept our new insurance. In fact none of the midwives at NWH accept our insurance so I'm stuck with an OB and a hospital with a super high c-section rate. NWH is right down the street and I don't want to have the risk of going into labor during rush hour and getting stuck in traffic on the way to a different hospital. My labor with DS was short so I guess the thought of c-section is slightly less scary than delivering on the side of the road during rush hour.

    Very exciting, cici!

    Just because the c-section rate is too high for your liking doesn't mean you should totally avoid going there.  It's a rate, not a given.  Make your wishes to have a c-section be an absolute emergency plan known and find an OB there that you feel comfortable understands and will be on your side.  They can't all be exactly the same in that regard even in a hospital that appears to push it.

    Congrats Cici! Don't stress too much about the c-section rate. I think NWH has a high rate partially because they do a good deal of high-risk deliveries. Also, did you call the midwives to make sure they don't take your insurance? Midwives don't always appear on the provider list but the doctor they work with or the hospital may be part of your plan. I didn't think the midwives I wanted to see were part of my insurance but I called and found out they were but weren't listed by name on the website. They billed through Beverly Hospital, which was part of my plan and everything was covered.

    Re: August TTC

    Chiclet - thanks so much for the congrats and especially for telling me to check with the midwives anyway! I spoke with the health insurance company yesterday and they insisted that no midwives were in network at our hospital. The group that I was with last time is definitely not covered but I called the other practice that delievers at the hospital and it turns out that they are in network. I honestly probably would not have called them if you hadn't mentioned your experience so I really appreciate it!!! That feels like such a huge weight off my shoulders.

    BTW - my concern about c-section is related to DS's birth. It's a long story, but my pregnancy with DS was technically considered high risk at the end even though there was nothing wrong and the "condition" that he had is likely to happen again. Most women that experience this are induced around 36-37 weeks and often end up with c-sections. I credit the midwives with allowing me to go to 39 weeks before induction and keeping the birth as natural as possible. There was one instance where I think it was close to being an emergency c-section but they just monitored me for a while and everything was fine. I have a feeling that if it was an OB it probably would've been a c-section no questions asked.

    Re: August TTC

    Depends on the OB, honestly; interview them with this in mind.  My friend who had triplets switched OBs because of the first one's view on how long the pregnancy should be allowed to progress, how soon she should "automatically" be put on bed rest, etc.  The one she went with didn't agree with the first one at all, but the first guy said his way was the ONLY way.  Everything went great with choice 2.  Of course, c-section wasn't the issue in her case, but other things she considered very important varied widely between two specialist OBs.

    Congratulations, Cici!  I had a similar experience--took me 15 months to conceive my DD, one to conceive this LO.
