Milasmama – thank you! I’m glad at least one went well too! And I guess the second wasn’t that bad, really. And thank you for sharing a bit about your medical history – That must have been so scary as a teenager. I’m glad that there haven’t been long term consequences on your fertility!
Cvdutch/ Christine – thank you for sharing your experience with genetics! I hadn’t thought about needing my husband’s family history, although that makes sense. I wonder if it’s a little different for me since it’s not because of miscarriages but rather because of a genetic condition I have? And no one else in my family seems to have. I will definitely message you if I have questions later. Thanks! PS I am so happy to hear that things are so far going well for you in this pregnancy! PPS I also have scoliosis but luckily never needed surgery. I can imagine you must be in a lot of pain. I hope you are easily able to manage the pain during your pregnancy.
Alzora – thank you! From what I understand, a genetics appointment is to figure out if you or your husband have any genes that will affect a future baby. Usually after repeated miscarriages or if you or your husband have a genetic condition. That’s the reason I’m going – to see if my Klippel Feil requires special precautions before getting pregnant (extra folic acid, for e.g.) or whether it will or how it will affect any future babies. It’s also quite rare so I’m hoping to just learn a little about it too!
Casilayne – I’m sorry your mom was insensitive. That’s rough. I’m with you on eating a can of frosting! I bought some yesterday to make a cake for next weekend and I started to eat the frosting right out of the can. Luckily (or unluckily), it turned out not to be the flavour I like, so I won’t actually be eating the whole thing. In university, my sister and I would frequently buy a can of frosting just to eat as dessert. Haha.
Grecienern – thanks for the tip about swimming when pregnant. I like how you described everything floating! I am glad to hear you are feeling good. Good luck with your appointment next week and hope the wait isn’t too stressful.
Khaatje – that is pretty cool that your child will be Roma/Moroccan with dual Dutch/Moroccan citizenship. What type of name requirements do the countries have? (other than 2 names)
Saramezz – wishing you luck these next few days!
Frances – sorry to hear about AF. Hope next month is better!
I ordered Wondfo and Taking Charge of Your Fertility on Thursday night, I'm looking forward to getting it! Happy weekend everyone!
ETA - I realized that I am the only person who shares detailed lists and dates of appointments - sorry for that! I find sharing lists makes me feel less overwhelmed, so thank you for indulging my overshare!

@sarahmess (and milasmama) good luck this month!! I'm hoping for happy news in a couple of weeks for the both of you... and everyone else on here as well!!
@andieta; the Dutch law only states you can't use a surname as a first name (which seems to be a big thing in the US) and the name can't be insulting (so Hitler, lucifer and swear words are out). Plenty of names left, however.... the Moroccan government has a (controversial!) lists of names, only names (inc. the spelling) on that list are allowed. To make matters worse, the list changes at rabdom without pre-announcement, and half the names on there areimpossible to spell/pronounce by non-Arabs. Here's (a version of) the boy's list, the one we struggle most with: http://www.bladna.nl/lijst-van-marok...men,00648.html
(Any advice on the names on there is very welcome)
@blade: this list is the reason I spell Luqman Lokmane (I like the "normal" Arab spelling much better)

@Frances, dude, don't put too much stock in my posts! I'm no doctor; I just repeat what I read online. Anyway, I'm sorry to hear about today's disappointment. I always take that pretty hard.
@Grecianern, your mother-in-law's comment!!! What!!! You poor thing...the worst I've gotten, that I can remember, is my sister and mom telling me, "Well, you can just adopt," like it's no big loss.
@Khaatje, I can't imagine having to choose a name off a relatively short list. Which country will you raise the child in? And if you are comfortable sharing, why does your mom not want you to get pregnant?
@Sarah, good call on not testing early this month. That disappointment is a killer. Good luck with this attempt!
@Christine, I don't have chronic pain issues, amazingly. I mean sometimes when I lie on my back for too long my pelvic bone gets sore. If you've ever ridden a horse, you'll understand what a sore pelvic bone feels like. I'm a little concerned about how it will feel to have a baby lying on my pelvic bone, but I'm willing to give it a go. I'm sorry to hear about the chronic pain you've lived with!
@Milasmama, oh my goodness! You've been through so much trauma. I'm so sorry to hear about your struggle with anorexia and consequent health problems, but what a miracle that you were able to have Mila! I wish you luck as you sort out this vacation problem. Isn't it frustrating that our husbands don't pay attention to these timing issues?! Boys.... I don't expect my husband to memorize my body's schedule, but it would be nice if our men at least thought about such things once in a while.
@Andrea, I never once thought that you "overshared." I too have discussed schedules and appointments at length, and I go into great unnecessary detail on all things TTC-related. And even non-TTC things. You're fine! Keep sharing. It's therapeutic for you, and we're all following each other's stories with interest. Others on our thread--even silent lurkers--may be relating to some of your specific issues.
@Poppy, you know Hebrew pronunciations? I've had to Google lots of the obscure Old Testament names in the past to figure out how to pronounce them. If the question arises again in the future, perhaps you would be able to help me out?
Today I'm about 10 DPO. I am trying to ignore all symptoms. Overall I feel the way I usually do at this point in my cycle, giving the feeling that my period is coming down the pike, but according to what Blade said, that means nothing yet. My knees are tense on and off, and my cervix feels crampy or pinchy on and off. My energy level is on the low side, but it's a gray and drizzly day here in PA, cool enough to wear long jeans and a jacket, and that kind of day makes anyone feel lazy and blah.

@poppy: a lot of the names on the list are actually of Hebrew origin; Adam, Yacoub, Ibrahim, Yahya, Yusuf, etc. pronouncing them the Hebrew name would be pretty close, only the vowels seem to have changed (not very surprising since Hebrew and Arabic script usually leaves out the vowels) I think these names are also most useable internationally, as opposed to Arab names like Abderrahman, Elghazouani, etc., but I do like the Arab names Sabri and Zaid
If you don't choose a name of the list, they don't register the child, so really no choice.
The girls list is so much more useable: http://www.bladna.nl/lijst-van-marok...men,00649.html
I love the story of Asiya, the wife of the Farao who took care of Moses. She is considered one of the four most important women in Islam. But on the list it's spelled Assia, which is on nameberry's "what not to name your baby list". Still most of my favorite girlsnames are on there, so I'm not too worried
@Alzora: My mom always put her career before us, but I was naive enough to think she would be happy to have grandchildren. She said she didn't have the time or energy for grandchildren, and wouldnt want any for a long time. Í can handle it, but the though of her making my children feel like they come in second place upsets me a lot. But no point worrying about that now, getting healthy and pregnant is far more important at the moment. And hang in there the next couple of days, the wait is almost over for this month!
@Andrea: Alzora is right, keep sharing, we want to know!
