Hello Everyone!

Sophie...glad you got to do your transfer anyway! Have are yoy feeling now? Glad you get 2 more tries with your FET after this. Can't wait to join you on the 2ww!

Jenn...I wish you weren't so down. There are plenty of women who experience all different symptoms. Try not to over-analyze, which I know is hard to do. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers! Good luck on your test!

My2LnT...thanks for sharing your pic. Our RE will give us a pic of the transfer. It was funny, on our 1st try, I had a hard time finding the embyros. I felt like that episode of "Friends" where Rachel couldn't see her baby on the US.

Pat...keeping your in my thoughts and prayers for a BFP!!! How are you feeling?

Mommytobe...looks like I am right behind you. My transfer is on Tuesday! I am so excited I can hardly wait! When are you testing? Do you think you will do a HPT?

Jul1e...Congrats on 7 fertilized eggs! That is awesome!!!

hrobinson...did you have your US? How did everything go?

Shantala...I guess AF should be knocking on your door soon! Who thought we would ever be soooo excited for that!!!

As for me, nothing too new. I started my progesterone calendar yesterday. Which means a sore tush from the injections. I made a hot pack with rice in a sock and heated it up in the microwave to put on the injection site. It seems to really help! I feel like a pill popping machine. I am taking 13 pills per day, 2 progesterone suppositories and 1 progesterone injection!!! Crazy, huh? Whatever it takes right? Hope everyone else is doing well! Keeping everyone in my prayers every night!

Well guys I woke up this morning feeling very much at peace thinking that this is all going to work out ok and our little one is nicely snuggled in and doing nicely. It was a really lovely feeling. I hope my feelings are on target and it is all ok. I’m starting to feel really nervous about Tuesday, I just want to know it is all going to be ok and I keep trying to push those negative thoughts that keep trying to slip in out the window.

I’ve just got off the phone with my sister, she has a little girl who is turning 2 in a couple of weeks and I know they were looking at having another one and had been “kind of trying” Anyway when talking to her I asked here if they had any luck yet – well….. um….. (I know what is coming next….) Yes we just found out yesterday…..won’t it be awesome if it works for you we will both be PG together, they will both be born about the same time and they will both be able to be able to grow up together……
I’m really pleased for her but if this does work (and I know it sounds selfish….) I would have rather had the opportunity to enjoy this on our own with out my sister tag teaming me all the way – is that really bad to be feeling this way…… I am sure this is some hang up from sister issues from the past, there are only the 2 of us, and while we have never not got on we have never been expectationaly close. I guess the upside is mum and dad will be thrilled about another grandchild (mum has wanted grandchildren for ever)

Pat
I just want to wrap you up in cotton wool and give you a big cuddle and try and make it all better for you. I hope you are hanging in there and the sky is feeling a little brighter today – Up until yesterday morning I have been feeling similar, like there isn’t a chance. But somehow a thread of hope has emerged that I am holding onto, I hope you can find a little thread somewhere to cling to also. Lots of love and hugs coming your way.

Susan
Thanks for your reassurance – I am trying to take it as a positive sign. Now some instructions for you…. Listen to your body and try and find some time to put your feet up and relax. Perhaps try and get into the habit of pouring your self a drink and putting your feet up for 30 minutes everyday when you get home from work – I am sure your body will appreciate a little time out each day. (Thank you for the other thread, that was so kind)

Jenn
Glad you are feeling a better now. I often think we don’t realise the pressure / feelings and emotional roller coaster until we have been managing them for a few days, then it all catches up and overflows. I was feeling very much like you up until yesterday morning and then something kicked in to give me some hope.
I’m sending lots of sticky baby dust your way for a BFP on Monday

Tiper55
I have sent the last 2 weeks reading more than I have for the last 6 months. It has been a wonderful distraction. I have just finished another book this afternoon.

Sophie
Congratulation on getting your 2 little babies home!!!! I am excited for you and know you must feel relieved to have them back where they belong. I am sorry you are having a rough ride this time and I hope having the weekend to relax a little will restore your strength. Sending you lots of hugs and baby dust to your 2 lovely babies.
PS: glad you have got lots of little ones to freeze for the rest of your football team :-)
PPS: doesn’t if feel great to have your name on the 2ww list !!!

Jen
I can’t believe how many pills and meds you are taking – do you rattle!!

Julie
Glad your dog is doing well, and extra glad your little ones are growing so well. I was wondering about doing a HPT – A few days ago I was going to try one today or tomorrow but I’m trying to take the cramping feelings I get on and off as a good sign and I think I am going to wait for the blood test. (in less DH mentions it……or I change my mind…….)

Tia
I have to pop my progesterone inside every 8 hours rather than jabs – so I can’t really offer any advice – but try icing the area first that may help. (It is interesting the different ways different clinics and courtiers do things.

Steph
You have a perfect little one already achieving all the milestones it should. I love the picture – I can’t wait to have one for myself.

Jovigal
Fingers crossed for both of us the cramping feeling is a good sign

Love to you all

Hey guys....
Just thought that I would check in. I was thinking about you guys. Still sitting here waiting and wondering if everything is OK....I have lots of worry filled days girls and it is bothering me. Just wanted to share. Pregnancy brings with it a whole new set of worries let alone going through a m/c last summer. I am so worried that something happened to my baby. I just want to know that it is doing OK. Probably all natural to worry but I am to the hilt!!!

Angela
I am feeling the same the way about the ultrasound. I really am. It is just nuts. I just wish I owned a freaking lab and u/s place. I know how the wait goes and you are not alone! If that makes you feel any better. I am glad that you are feeling at peace with things. That does make it better. I don't think that it is selfish to want your own time. I know how that goes and I really think that your time will be special!!!

Jen
You are like a walking pharmacy! That is a lot of pills! Wow!!!I will have to try the rice pack thing. If it works that good I want to try whatever my booty looks like a battle field!!!

Steph
Nice pic! Are you happy now??? I would be to know that it is where it is supposed to be at the right time. Good Job. What were you able to see??

Jules
I hope that things go well for you!!! Let us know. I am so excited to hear how it goes for you. WooHoo....Arent you so excited?

Sophie
You get your results back super fast!!! WOW! That is great. I am so sorry that you are having so much pain. That is really horrible. I hate feeling like that. At least you will be able to chill out and relax while your body heals and lets that embie snuggle right in!!! We will cheer you on in the 2WW and wait with you until the 14th!!!

Jovigal
Thank you for the comment about the cramps because they still make me somber some times. Just here and there they are annoying me. I appreciate the comment.


Talk to you later...working and it is just nuts here....

Hi everyone

Hi ladies I was away 3 days on the site because my sister and her family going away holiday on News land and I was helping her.

So many things going this week and you are all doing well!!!

Sophie : I am so happy sweetie your babies are back where they belong, I wished you feel better soon the pain. WELCOME 2WW the most dreadful time and I wish you very Strong BFP for the nears future.

Angle and Pat: how are you? I know it is really very hard to be strong and feel positive but please try to stay positive, 2, 3 more day is left I am wishing you vary Strong BFP.

As for me there is no any symptoms at all since 29th up to know, this can drive me crazy and I am not feeling any positive at all, my DH ask me to do HPT and I said to him I don’t want to do I am going to do and find out what ever the result on the day my test day.

Enjoy your weekend all.

Good morning ladies,

Well, nothing much to report other than the pain now being bearable with a steady intake of Tylenol every four hours. I had quite a scare last night, though. I woke up in the middle of the night and felt pain on the left side of my lower back (kidney level). It really hurt and emptying my bladder did nothing. In fact, it hurt so much that it took everything not to scream at the top of my lungs. I took two Tylenols and went back to bed. I was completely panicked (being confused from waking up like that didn't help). I think I went back to sleep and that's what saved me. But had I stayed awake like that with no change, I would have asked my DH to drive me straight to the ER. I'll never know if it was muscular or ER or OHSS pain, or just sleepiness amplifying the whole thing, but I was relieved to wake up with just the usual pain in my lower back this morning. Phew.

My sweetheart went to the bakery this morning and brought me fresh baguette... we had a lovely breakfast on the deck, even if it's cloudy. I'll do personals and then grab a much needed shower and then I'll probably try to read a couple of articles for my job. But it will be a slow-paced day for sure.

Jul1e: yup, doggie lover here! And cat lover, too... I use to tell people I'm really bisexual in that domain... LOL I'm glad that your pup is doing better. They look so miserable when they come back from a surgery. My big girl whined sometimes after she was neutered; the anaesthesia was wearing off I guess. So I went on the floor with her and spooned! Yup! Didn't care if I looked like a fool. But I caressed her slowly and she calmed down. We had adopted her from a shelter barely two months before, and the bond we built that night was the beginning of something real strong. Hehehe this morning, she looks yucky! My DH took her for a leash-free run on the soccer field. The grass was weeeet! I'm really lookin forward to hear about your decision for ET. Keep us posted when you can! :D

My2LnT: thanks for your kind wishes hunny! And thanks for posting the pic! You should ask Angela's DH to come and take a look; I'm sure he could find a pair of eyes, a cute little nose and mouth! :D It's unbelievable that, barely a week or so later, they can see a heartbeat! Geez, they grow fast! How are you feeling with that picture in hand? Does it help your anxiety?

jen: :shock: Wow, 13 pills! And how do you feel, side-effects wise? I hope it's not too bad. Can't wait to see you on the 2ww list either! :D

arizonakiwi: look at that PMA! Isn't it amazing? :D I'm so glad you're feeling better sweetheart! yay! About the progesterone; the protocol really changes across clinics. For example, one of the nurses was really surprised my doctor had considered adding PIO to the pessaries. She found it to be a LOT. Another nurse (Susan!) told me that some clinics don't even prescribe progesterone! So it really changes. Thank you so much for your kind words hunny! *mwah!* Yes, restoring my strength is what it's all about. I could go straight to bed right now and nap! But I'll try not to take any naps during the day. I fear I might have trouble sleeping during the night as a result. But I'll take it reeeeally easy. Yes, it does feel great to be in the 2ww list!

Oh, and sweetie... don't feel bad about your sister. I react the same way and I'm not even pregnant, lol! Being pregnant makes you terribly proud, and it's normal to want to be the center of attention. You want it to be your moment of glory, in a way. And now you have to share it with someone else... a sister, in addition! However, I'm really sure that the feeling is temporary. After a few months, I think you'll mainly be happy that someone close to you is going through the same thing and can understand you in a very special way.

TansRN: sorry to hear that you're going nuts with the wait for your u/s... Though remember.. worrying about it won't change the outcome! It just makes you feel miserable! You need a big hug!!! Thank you so much for your kind words. *hugs*

mandeeq: thank you so much for your kind words, sweetie! I'm so sorry to hear you feel negative! You have no reason to! Look, Susan told me yesterday that they occasionally have women who show up to the clinic wearing pads and bleeding like AF... and they still test positive and they still get healthy babies! Some even refuse to do the test and they ask them to come anyway... and guess what? ;) Remember... pregnant until proven otherwise. And right now you don't even have reasonable doubt! ;) Hang in there darling! Just a few more days! *hugs*

Okay... DH dozed off on the bed, reading... I think I'll go cuddle. Have a great Saturday ladies!

Well I couldn't take it anymore. I went to the clinic and asked for an ultrasound! ITS TWINS!!! I know it is still early but it is so exciting. I am still sitting here thinking OMG!!!! I can't believe it. Both babies heartbeats are about 150's-160's. The doctor said that everything looks really good. She said that both babies are just about to the 6 week mark. I got to see the little flicker of their heartbeats and I started crying....It was so amazing! I am soooo thrilled that I went in. I am still going in on Tuesday to check and make sure things are going good. That is fine by me. I don't mind seeing them again!!! I am still sitting here and I just can't believe it. I really can't!!!


I posted this post and my ultrasound pic at www.thejourneyforbaby.blogspot.com

Hello Tanya,

Thanks for sharing the news and the photo! Hehehe I'm not surprised you did, though! I had suspected you had twins from the very beginning after you got your BFP. CONGRATULATIONS sweetie, you must be over the moon! And they both look cute!

Ah, gotta update the list just to put that news on display! :D

Tanya, wow, twins! I knew you had at least 2 with those beta numbers. My RE said that anytime your beta is over 200 (10dp3dt) that you most likely have multiples. I was hoping to see 2 on mine but only one, a beautiful singleton though. I go back on the 11th to see the heartbeat.

Hello Ladies. It seems like forever since I was last on here...had to read 6 pages to get caught up. This is going to be quick as dd just woke up from nap and needs to cuddle with mama.
This will probably be my last post...well, maybe tomorrow...for a while. DH and I do all our IVF 360 miles from home, so as of now we are staying in a motel. However, on Monday we travel to our out-laws to spend 2 weeks with them. Of course they don't have internet...so unless we can find a place to plug in, I will be going through withdrawal.

Susan- I just read that you have endo. Question for you, is the endo currently active? I'll explain later.

Tpiper- So glad that you decided to continue. I am sure it was a tough decision to come to, hopefully you will see it was the right one. It amazes me at how many times we have to "make the decision".

Julie- Glad to hear your dog came through the operation. It amazes me at how these furry babies of ours tug at our hearts so much. It seems like we completely feel their pain. Glad that he is home though, and hopefully he is doing better.

Jen- How do youmake a rice sock? Do you cook the rice, or just put rice in a sock and heat the sock?
13 pills...our very own druggie on the site:) hehehe
Did you go in and sign all your work paperwork? I am sure you are excited to be starting another adventure.

Tans- Yea!!! TWINS I am so jealous. Enjoy the next 8 months.

Okay, I had my ultrasound on Friday. I was worried because last time we went through this, I had cysts and had to put everything off for a week. I am such a control freak, that it "put my panties in a wad". However, I was expecting it this time. I am on AF and had some shart pains in my one and only ovary so I just thought it would be okay, delay a week, no biggy. I went in, did the US and the doctor looked, and said he wanted to talk to me in the hallway. They then proceeded to put me in another room. Well, the good news was NO CYSTS!!!
However, they found signs of endo in my ovary. He then had me wait to speak with a specialist on endo (and actually my real doctor). Well, DR said we could do one of two things...wait a whole nother month and see if the spots they were seeing were really just left over bleeding from ovulating, or if it really was the endo, or we could continue. The risk being, if I continue stimming, I may not produce as many follicles as we would like. He wouldn't lean one way or the other, he wanted the decision to be completely ours. So, dh decided that we might as well continue and see what happens. WE had pretty much decided this was the last time anyhow. So, the doctor said as long as we get 2 follicles he will proceed to EC and ET. So, please pray that I produce lots of follicles. STart stimming tonight...very nervous.

Will try to do more personals tonight after DD goes to sleep. DH and I have been fighting over the computer laterly....he seems to win. He will be out with his father tonight, so there will be no fight for it.

I hope all are doing well. It is just amazing to see how many BFP there are on this thread. Hopefully the trend will continue.

-Heather-
