Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Barbara, thanks for the info with the ultrasound. My office told me they may not be able to see anything with the first ultrasound (and I was surprised by that because I thought I remembered that they saw the sac when I was pregnant with my son). I didn't document everything with that pregnancy thou...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Lyd, I'm sorry you are in that dreaded 2 ww period; it is so hard and gets harder and harder with more experience. Are you traveling anywhere for the holidays? I ended up traveling during my 2 ww this time and it helped (although of course it was always on my mind!). Post as much as you need to; thi...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Hi guys. Quick update on my 2nd beta: it was 466! It didn't quite double from 260, but it was definitely over the 1.5 times mark, so I think they were happy with that. My ultrasound is scheduled for Friday, 12/23. I am so excited. I'm sure this week will feel pretty long, but hopefully the wait will...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Hi Lyd! I'm glad you are on bedrest today and taking it easy. I'm sure it's hard to hear everything going on downstairs, but it's great to have had some drugs to help you relax :D I am a working mom and I always have mixed feelings about it; mostly because I never have enough time to get anything do...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Hi ladies! Lyd, great embryos! That is so awesome and it sounds like your chances will be so great for at least one to take! Now, it's the hard waiting period. At least you will start POAS so you will see everything change as you go. Please keep us posted! Kerpupples, sorry to hear you are feeling b...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Michele, wow, I'm so sorry to hear your DH is in such pain. I can't imagine being awake during a procedure when you are not supposed to be! I hope you are able to pamper him a little bit and that you two will have any additional help that you may need over the next few days. I hope the drugs are abl...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Hello again! Barbara, I'm sorry for the spotting you are seeing, but if it's brown, maybe it's just old blood from when you were spotting before? They said everything was fine when you went in before, right? I know what you mean about Friday being so far away. When you have your next milestone to wa...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Hi Barbara. I'm so sorry to hear about the spotting, but I bet it's pretty normal. There have been so many posts about spotting being normal. Of course, it's always a good idea to call your doctor's office and hear it from them :D I had spotting with my pregnancy at about 6 weeks or so (it was the d...
