Amanda - I too am 17 weeks and have been having weird cramping in my abdomen, typically on one side or the other. Per one of my pregnancy books, they are totally normal and are "Round-Ligament Pain". It's the ligaments as they are stretched and pulled to make room for the growing uterus. My book say...

Hey Tobee - I put a little Vaseline in each nostril at night and my bloody noses have stopped. They were really bad, several times a day before I started doing it. So try it out!

Helen - I had AF type cramps as well before getting my BFP. Fingers are crossed for you!

So I've found an interesting solution to my nosebleeds - Vaseline! I put it inside my nostril before bed and I've had no problems in a week. Yay! My humidifier is really loud and annoying so I'm glad I've found a fix without having to buy a new one. Had a great time in NYC seeing friends and telling...

Congrats Sophie on feeling the baby move! How cool!

I'm off to NYC tomorrow to see my friends there and tell them the news. I lived there before moving to Chicago so it will be fun seeing everyone and sharing my excitement.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Hey Sophie- I am a short girl, and fortunately both Old Navy and The Gap have maternity jeans in short, regular, and tall lengths! So there may be something for you! As for the coat, I slipped the elastic tie through the button hole and then slipped the loops from each side over the button. So no ne...

Hey! After spending $28 each for two bella bands, I found Be by Bellaband online on Target's website for $16.99! It's too late for me to return mine, but for anyone looking go to www.target.com and search Bellaband. Reviewers say it is the same as the more expensive version. Glad to hear everyone is...

Renee - I got pregnant by a frozen embryo! So I'm sure your DH sperm will still be able to do the trick. Good luck and enjoy the time off from IVF over the holidays.

Renee - Can they put you on BCP and Lupron to control your cycle so you don't have another period before your DH returns? To Have Fun - Good luck with the tests! I too enjoyed both suppositories 3 times a day and progesterone shots every few days. I guess since my first attempt didn't work and I jus...

Hey Sophie, thanks for the info. I assume I will get my results on Monday then. I had my blood draw last week at a lab that will analyze it and get it to my OB for my appointment on Monday. I'll be so happy to see an US after 4 weeks of not having one.
