I just took it easy for a day or two, no actual bed rest. The next week was thanksgiving and I was a crazy lady running errands and host the holiday at my house. I was shocked I got a BFP considering how hectic that week was. Just goes to show the bedrest is mostly B.S.

Hi ladies. I hope I am out of the m/s phase. Actually had a good appetite today and am trying to gain like 5 lbs this week before my next high risk apt on Feb 1 since I have not gained ANY weight yet. I had my first trimester screening this week and the results show I tested positive for MTHR which ...

Caprice- I am so sorry you are having such a hard time. All those meds...yikes! Yeah for identicals! I just got a call from my high risk OB that I tested positive for a genetic mutation that causes blood clots in the placenta. I start lovenox sub q injections tomorrow. So much for being injection fr...

Caprice- how was your scan last week? Starwishes- all my symptoms come and go. Mommyof2- no hair on my belly but man the hair on my face is horrible. So dark and thick. I got it waxed a week ago and it all grew back already. I know it is bad when the DH notices and says something:( I got released fr...

My RE said bedrest was BS. I didn't really do bedrest, just took it easy for 2 days and hung out at home. After the 2 days, I was back to normal. Grocery shopping, picking my DD up. Thanksgiving was during my 2ww and I hosted. That was a hectic week and I was running all around on my feet a ton. Her...

i love my Toyota Sienna. I only have 1 kid right now but bought it as soon as she was born and love it. I went to the dealer going to buy a highlander and changed my mind as soon as I got there.

I had a miserable first pregnancy which started out as quads (from 3 embies) three died in utero and my water broke at 24 weeks. it barely ended with one. My beautiful DD was born at 26 weeks weighing under 1lb. She just turned 2...

i think $700 for FET meds seems a little high if it is for only meds through your beta. If i remember correctly most of the pills are covered through insurance (doxy, medrol, estrace) so I just had the $10 copy of each then the progesterone + syringes was like $120 for 10ml of POI. You need about 3 ...

FET's are so much easier than IVF on your body. My protocol was bc pills, period, then estrogen pills (some do patches) then 1 weeks before transfer you start Progesterone injections (or suppositories). Only 2 u/s while getting ready to make sure the lining was thickening. Good luck.

BR- I replied to your post on the IVF side about your beta. Congrats again! I have very light spotting on and off, nothing needing a pantiliner but when I wipe I see it. I have not worried about it too much and mentioned it to my RE at the last appt and he wasn't concerned. I am having a lot of issu...
