Re: May cycle buddies :)

Kamille - I think everyone is in the same boat... waiting waiting waiting. So much happens during cycling, now it seems like so long until anything happens. My next appointment is the 17th, and my next ultrasound is 3 weeks after that. I think it is interesting that your OB said that. I know they al...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

julia - welcome to our group! I am glad to hear everything is going great, it sounds like you have had a bit of a scary start. I couldn't imagine having to pass clots, I think I would be a nervous wreck. I hit 14 weeks.... woo-hoo! I am officially out of the first trimester. I put together a little ...

Re: shocked at how rude some ppl can be

I thought I would add my story of how insane people can be. I was at my husband's sister's wedding and was 5 months pregnant with my twins (from an IUI). I was open about our fertility struggles with our immediate family. Apparently my mother-in-law had told all her relatives that we had done fertil...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

You ladies are great! For an instant I thought about flipping out on the witch, but I didn't want to ruin my sister-in-law's special day. So I was polite and said everyone was entitled to their onion and avoided her the rest of the evening. It just frustrates me that there are people in this world t...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

stephanie - I am so sorry you have to deal with gossipy wives. I don't understand how some women can be like that, I just wish that everyone could be discreet supportive instead, wouldn't it just make everyone's life easier=) I am sorry about the previa too. I know a lot of people that have been thr...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Kamaile - that is great you have a c-section date already! I know I am having a c-section too, since I had one last time, but my Dr is more of a wait and see kind of guy. I can't believe your gender scan is in 4 more weeks, is it at 15 or 16 week? I have to wait until 18 weeks... doh! PA - I hope yo...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

I usually copy and paste it before I post, but I was lazy... that will teach me. PA - great advice on flying. I will be flying to my parents house near Pittsburgh mid-August. Has your OB given you any kind of time frame for how long you can fly for? I remember last time I wasn't allowed after 30week...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Tess - we had a hard time deciding how many to transfer as well. For us we wanted to just add one more to our family. In the end we decided to transfer 2, because it gave us a 15% boost in success rates. They both stuck for us. I think age is an important factor though, I am 30 so that may have some...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

I want to smack people who say you will deliver early... seriously. First of all full term for twins is 38 weeks not 40, so some people including nurses and doctors say that is early... even though you can't possibly go full term... so dumb! I am part of a twins group and lots of moms deliver betwee...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

Stephanieford78 - I had to laugh at you saying you are uncomfortable sleeping... not in a mean way, but I know what is coming up and it doesn't get better. I think trying to sleep at the end was the hardest part for me. The good news is the more uncomfortable you are the bigger and healthier those b...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

PA - it is not an irrational fear. It is perfectly normal to want to know that everything is okay. It is nice once you can feel movement, then you can have that extra reassurance more often. Kitty - really I think all of us who worked so hard to get pregnant need that extra knowledge to keep us sane...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

rio - what a dilemma. I can understand why it is so hard! For me personally I would choose not to do the study and to find the clinic with the best success rates and go there. What worries me about the study is that you can't have anything extra to help the eggs mature and be good quality, plus if y...
