Re: The Official TTC for 6 Months or More Thread

Thanks so much for your reply JGator. We actually are seeing an RE now (she's a nurse practitioner, there are no RE docs up here) and she had me undergo a sonohysterogram and a hysteroscopy earlier this month. She is also the one who upped my Femara dose (I did 7.5mg per day from days 3-7) and put m...

Re: A year ago, I found out I was pregnant.

Thanks so much, steel and apacherose, for your kind and supportive comments. I am finding my way over to 6+ today, I'm feeling particularly downtrodden as I've learned that I am once again not pregnant this cycle despite several interventions.

Re: The Official TTC for 6 Months or More Thread

Hello all. Just wanted to say hello here and I wish I could give everyone a hug. I've been lurking on this thread on and off for the past several months, as my husband and I have been TTC since a month after I underwent a D&E for trisomy 9 on 1/2/14. I have another son who is now 4 and who still...

Re: High Praise for ERD/Brilliantly Engaged and Jewels by Gr

Your ring is sooo amazingly gorgeous. Where did you get the idea for that setting? It is very unique and I have never seen anything like it but it is amazing. Also, was the 20k gold your idea, or did ERD recommend it based on the color of your diamond? The gold is so shiny and I love rose gold. wha...

And last ones. I am so grateful to ERD for doing justice to this diamond, and I am grateful most of all to pricescope for being such a supportive and understanding community! Nobody aside from you all knows how much I have been obsessing over this ring! :)

I am so very terribly sorry for your loss.

And also for what it's worth ... I lost a wanted child five years ago, at just abo...
