Re: Best advice for moms - please add to list!!!!

Sorry if I repeat anything that's already been said... My daughter slept in our room for 6 months. The Fisher-Price Rock and Play Sleeper is the greatest invention ever. Sturdy, light, keeps baby strapped in, upper-body elevated, and on her back. Can easily be moved from room to room and awesome for...

Re: cramping after BFP??????????

I had a ton of cramping between my transfer and beta, and for the entire first trimester of my pregnancy and everything was fine. I had cramps, shooting pains and aches of all kinds (down below) and I was convinced something was wrong but all was well!

Re: New here, but not to IVF

margi26, I'm sorry you've had such a tough journey. I am hoping and praying that you'll find success with IUI. MANY women do! As far as #2 goes...we won't be doing IVF again and I think I've had it with fertility drugs so if we do decide we want another we'll just try on our own and see what happens...

New here, but not to IVF

I have been lurking here for quite some time now. I am 36 years old, husband is 40, and we had our first child last December via IVF. It was our 2nd try with IVF, and we had done 2 IUI's before IVF.
