Re: November 2011 babies

Hey ladies I did the amnio this past Tues n I HATED it. It didn't really hurt but it was veeeerrry uncomfortable. The doc got half way in with the needle and had to keep it there for an extra couple of mins bcuz the little princess wouldn't move her butt away from the needle. So it was an agonizing ...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

WE-just reading your last post truly touched me. The love u have with your hubby seems so strong and deep. To have that in and of itself is an amazing gift from God that many people never get to experience. I was really hoping this would be your moment. I'm sorry it wasn't, but from the sounds of th...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

Becca -I just wanted to let you know I was on crionine in the beginning and was googling to get more info on it bcuz I wasn't sure I wanted to do that AND do the POI shots at the same time. Many of the women had the pinking clumps come out. One woman was told that if you insert too far it can irrit...

Re: Normal to look this pregnant?

I looked 5-6 mos. right away. Turns out it was a combination of OHSS, cysts, and all the hormones left over from cycle. Yes, it is quite common in IVF pregnancies to look like that. After a few weeks the "swelling" subsided. As a matter of fact, it took a while for me to even start looking preggo ag...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

We-all that gastric upset, cramping, and constipation is a pretty good sign. It happened to me right away, so much so that I was googling to see if straining would cause the embryo to drop out! :lol: It's okay to take colace if the problem gets worse. That will get you through for now. Drink lots of...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

Bliss n Blair-Thanks. It definitely a pink party or some variation on it. I think I mentioned earlier that I'm in shock about the sex bcuz I just knew it was a boy. So it still has to sink in that I'll be shopping for pink, frilly things. I'm super excited though. I have to figure out how to post th...

We -I like what you had to say earlier about God having a plan, and I 100% believe that. You sound very grounded in your decision so keep a PMA and encourage that lil one to stick and talk to her day n night. Congrats on being PUPO cuz you are honey. Skatie -The cramping is so normal. You've probab...
