Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi Susan -- Congrats on the great NT result - I have my test next Tuesday. We have decided not to do any invasive testing (so no amnio), no matter the results of our sequential screen - but I guess of course if we come back with screen positive then we may have another think about it. But my SIL's f...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Welcome Mayla! Congratulations to you on reaching the huge 12 week milestone! I have about 1.5 weeks to go to hit 12 weeks - my due date is Oct. 26. I, too, had a loss at 8.5 weeks after our first IVF with ESET and it was really hard to take. It's made me uber nervous for this pregnancy, but as the ...

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

Katie - Congrats on the progesterone going up! Your little bump sounds like it growing at a great rate. I can't wait until I have a huge belly :-) Positive - Congrats on seeing the heartbeat. That is just the best, isn't it? I'm sorry about embie #2 -- we also transferred two but we are having a sin...

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

Hi ladies! Congrats to Gi, Lou, and Ronda for the great news! Quick update on me - I'm 10 weeks the day after tomorrow! I can't believe I've made it this far. We had our first OB appointment and I 'graduated' from the fertility clinic last week. I was all choked up! I really love those gals at the c...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi ladies - Sounds like everyone is doing wonderfully and having great visits with their doctors! I'm the lone singleton in the group I think :-) I just wanted to share that we had our first OB visit yesterday. We really, really like the doctor. We didn't do a thorough physical exam - just weight, u...

What to expect on first OB visit?

After being an IVF expert for so long - I find I know nothing about how to be pregnant. Can anyone share exactly what happened on their first OB visit? I'm at 8.5 weeks and my first OB visit I'll be at 9 weeks. We are having a singleton and he/she has a great little heartbeat we've seen twice. Thank...

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

Hi all! Can I join, too? I've been posting to the Oct Mommies board but this one seems to be the active one! I'm Merri. Just had our 2nd ultrasound at 8 weeks yesterday. Everything looks great. HR at 169 and baby measured at 8 weeks and 1 day. We're delighted. I am released from my RE now! Hurray! C...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi ladies, Just wanted to share that I had my 2nd ultrasound today. DH and I were thrilled to see our little's strong heartbeat again. It was thumping away at 169 bpm. The little one measured at 8 weeks and 1 day - a day ahead! We are officially released to the OB, so I need to find one ASAP. We're ...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi Karen, Yes, I'm still avoiding that same list -- only my clinic says only to avoid sex the first 5 days after transfer. I was just wondering about the additional things - along the lines of lunchmeat and mobile phones by the bed?? I'm still not sure when I'll get to go to the OB so I'd like to tr...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi ladies, Thanks for everyone writing about getting weaned off PIO, my RE mentioned it last time, but we didn't really talk about it. I have a question for you all - what are you guys avoiding now that you are preggers? I'm getting tons of advice from family, but I haven't seen an OB yet (I'm still...

Re: Jan/Feb 2010--Cycle Group

Hi ladies, Sorry I have been away from the board -- DH and I have been on a much delayed, much needed vacation! Finally, we got to go away just the two of us and not be trying to get over some recent heartbreak...It's been 3 years!! So I guess this is my last post on this board! Sorry to see it clos...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi ladies, Good luck Karen on your u/s! I'm sure you'll see two little heartbeats beating away at a furious rate and then you'll finally be able to relax a little more. Poor thing, I'm sure the spotting is not helping - although everything I've read and heard says it's very normal and nothing to be ...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Symptoms -- Ditto on the sense of smell - I think everything smells yuck! The only other symptom I've really had is I've been pretty moody the last week - like pissed off with the world a bit. My acupuncturist says this is due to the fact that we've hit the official start of spring according to the ...
