Chris- I am having a little girl. We decided to name her Victoria Leigh. Everything is going well. I have done well and only gained 14 pounds. I really have to watch how much I gain because of my prosthetic. If I gain too much too quickly I won't be able to wear it. I have started using a cane becau...

Val - Glad you are feeling a little better. Big hugs to you. Stefanie - Being exhausted is pretty common in the first trimester. Especially with two I would think. Your body is doing a lot to make those babies!! I am still exhausted and am waiting for the surge of energy I have heard about in the se...

Rinnie - It is sooo good to hear from you. I have been thinking of you and wondering were you went. I am so glad that you got pregnant despite the Lupron mess. I am also pregnant after my 2nd IVF cycle. I did acupuncture and herb tablets this time. Good luck on your u/s today!!!!

Val - Happy early birthday!! 40 is just a number. You got pregnant just a short time ago and you will be able to do it again!! I am sorry you are not getting the support from your family. I have some insensitive people in my family. (I heard "Aren't you pregnant yet?" for years.) that is why I am so...

Chris - Man, that sucks. I remember all the trouble you had last time getting your E2 levels down. I am so sorry. It is hard to figure what to say. I really hope 15 lupron does it for you. If not a 6 month break might work. Have you tried any Chinese herbs or anything to get your E2 levels down? Did...

Hey, I am still reading the posts. I have been meaning to write since I got back but have been very busy. Looks like I will be traveling again at the end of the week. My Grandpa died and I have to fly to Washington State. That is a long flight I am not looking forward too. I hope I don't throw up. I...

toobee- When I went in to my regular ob they checked for anemia and didn't say anything. I guess that is a good sign. My DH looked up dizziness and found a few reasons it could be. I noticed my blood pressure is low whenever I am dizzy. I am usually 120/80. Lately it has been 106/67. Plus my pulse i...

toobee- Imodium is for diarrhea. I have had it real bad. I go at least 4 times a day. The doc said that imodium was fine, but that it might make me constipated. Right now I prefer that over running to the bathroom. :) I found this site that tells you what the FDA risk category for medicines are. It ...
