My boyfriend has the anger issues too.. It's part of the TBI and not having impulse control... Plus they're trained to react a different way in combat and its hard for them to correlate that to civilian life...I completely understand and it's his VA benefits...so a lot of stress... And it's difficult being an older woman in that sometimes I think they don't have enough life experience to deal with our needs....idk if I said that right...lets talk more and message me any time you need to vent...I'll certainly understand.,,BTW your chart is still looking good...FX...
Wow our stories are so alike. My hubby is Army, we are still in the med board process so technically he is still in until they finish that process. Did he lose his VA compensation or Military compensation? My hubby has torn and stretched ligaments/tendons in his ankles so he wears ankle braces. He has arthritis threw out his spine and 2 degenerative disk. Both of his knees are messed up with arthritis and he cant put much pressure on them, cant stand for long periods of time. We just got the disagnosis for TBI this year, he has severe headaches everyday and migraines about 3 times a week that put him in bed. PTSD is super hard on everyone, he gets so mad for no reason and he doesnt understand and then he gets super depressed.. its a constant up and down. He also has sleep apnea.
I think you are prego! FX you get great news at the u/s.
Thanks for the info and positive vibes I hope we both get our bfps soon! I keep cramping like AF is starting and feeling the discharge come out a bit (tmi I know) and check to see if AF started early if something, but nothing there... also very similar to what I experienced last time I was pg. Here's hoping FX!
Ugh...insurance issues are so frustrating !! I hope it gets worked out asap !!! I've never taken fertilaid or fertilitea but I have taken red raspberry leaf tea/supplements and vitex...I think those are both in fertilaid but I don't remember for certain. I know vitex can take several months before you get the full effects . I took 500mg 3x/day of vitex and drink 3c/day of red raspberry leaf tea. I did notice a difference for the better with vitex but stopped taking it to have testing done with my RE.
I sure hope your cycle regulates soon !!!
My heart sure goes out to you for all you've been through...sure wish this ttc journey didn't have to be a struggle !
I definitely recommend you get a referral to a reproductive endocrinologist (RE). Given your history and your family history I'd say an RE would be most helpful to you . I went through 9 losses and my midwives/obs really gave no indication that it was abnormal or that I was "high risk". When we moved nearer to a large university hospital (best in the state and one of the top hospitals in the country) I got an RE referral and they have been amazing...totally on top of everything! When I got pg they told me I was very high risk and referred me to the high risk (maternal-fetal-medicine) drs. My pg ended in ectopic in May and the RE is still in touch with me every week. I'm having testing done for recurrent pg loss with my next cycle.
All that to say I really think it would be worth it to get the referral...but I'm still hoping you're pg this cycle !!
