Had my scan this morning and it was so wonderful. The baby was moving all over the place and at one point looked like he/she was waving at us!! My DH was so cute about the whole thing. Everything the baby would do like cross its feet or put its arm over its eyes he would say "It gets that from me!!"...

Hi Ladies! Reward- I'm so happy to hear that your nuchal scan went so well. I have mine on Friday and I'm excited, nervous and anxious all at once. How were you feeling before the scan? I have lost so many of my pregnancy symptoms (fatigue, nausea, etc.) and I've barely gained any weight so I think ...

Hi girls, Well after re-thinking everything and hearing that several of you are having the 12 week scan for Downs I have decided to go ahead with it after all. My insurance covers it at 100% so I am just looking at it as another opportunity to see the baby. I'm feeling better and not gaining any wei...

Hello ladies, Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. The weather here was perfect so I can't complain. Sad to be back at work again though… Reward- I have been having twinges and cramps lately as well. Maybe that starts to happen as you near the second trimester? I was thinking maybe i...

Reward- I'm so glad that your OB was able to hear the heart beat with the Doppler. I basically told mine I wasn't leaving the office until i heard it because I would just be a worried mess! It took mine a while too but he found it. But there was a lot of static and it was a little hard to hear. I ca...

Kimberly- Congratulations on almost being done with your first cycle! I don't really understand what any of the numbers mean but after your ER they will call you with a report to tell you how many eggs were retrieved, how many were mature, and how many fertilized. It will usually be the next morning...

Did you do the NT scan? Opinions wanted...

Hi all, I just scheduled my first trimester screening and I have mixed emotions about it. I'm excited that I will get to have an ultrasound and see the little one again. Especially since otherwise I would have to wait 2 months until my 20 week appt. But I have had a lot of friends say they opted to ...

Just wanted to let you all know that my first "normal" doctor's appt. went well yesterday. He was able to find the heart beat with a Doppler. Did take a minute though. I kept getting all excited but then he'd look at me and say "That's your hear beat, not the baby!" Anyway, all looks good. Baby hear...

Nims, I had brown spotting in the fifth week. My RE said it's very common to get spotting around the same time your AF would have come. She was not concerned at all and said only to worry if it is bright red and continuous. I know it is nerve wracking but I'm sure you are fine!! When is your scan? I...

I'd suggest you jump in on a thread that corresponds to when you are doing your cycle. I think there is a May/June thread started and that will all be people going through IVF in...
