pauline,
wow! 13 eggs that's terrific! you only need one- remember: a couple for backup is always reassuring. enjoy your last weekend not being pupo.
hope your celebrating w/bubbly. have a safe flight.

hi to all of us girls who had their babies or are in the process.
it seems like it takes forever to get to the pupo mark but after that time
really does fly.

summer, how are you & anna doing? mom left right?

caroyln, you babe are next. are you ready? how are you feeling in your
last days?

chriss, real busy i bet w/the boys. how is your recovery coming along? still in pain/discomfort?

afm- hanging in there at 32 weeks. still on bed rest. hoping to get 4 more weeks out of this pregnancy. doing anything at all is becoming very difficult- but i remain strong. we are just thrilled about our upcoming arrivals.

have a good evening ladies,

Pauline - Hoping for fab fert rates for you and a smooth transfer on Monday.

Chris - Welcome to the group. The ladies are lovely here.

Sabi & Carolyn - Sending smooth delivery vibes your way.

AFM - I've had some spotting and was very worried so I had my scan today. We have 1 little bub hanging in there. Measuring ahead for dates and everything's looking fine.
Having another scan next week just to make sure. Don't know where the bleeding is coming from but it's only minimal so the FS isn't worried. He's upped my dose of pregesterone to 3 times a day now just to be safe.

So there we go...slowly, slowly.....

hey clemo - fantastic that you saw one little bean in there! Keep focusing on that - you also had a great Beta, so I am sure you have a strong one in there! Keep up that PMA. I know it is going to feel like an eternity till that scan next week...

sabi - great to hear from you! Hang in there! Do hope you make it another 4 weeks. The last weeks are very uncomfortable, but necessary....
Are you getting out to go to the doctor every week? Thinking of you!

All the best to you, Pauline!! Good luck and safe travels!

Hi everyone,
Sorry I have been MIA but I have been so tired lately:-)

Clemo-Congrats!! One little bean holding his or her own is awesome!!

Pauline--I am thinking about you your NEXT!!!

Sabi & Wishfull only a couple more weeks until you hold your little bundle of joys!!!! I can't believe how time has flown!

To everyone else I hope you are doing well!!

AFM: I am actually feeling like a human:-) I will be 17 weeks tomorrow! I had a elective 3D ultrasound last week so we know that we are having twin BOYS! Daniel Fredrick and Thomas Michael! It still seems unreal even though I can feel them kicking me as I type. Last week was hard since that is when I lost my first pregnancy but these little guys are fighters. We are blessed!

Hi everyone,

Fert report today - 9 have made it to this stage, so I'm happy with that.

Clemo, sorry to read about the spotting, it seems that worry never stops. Congrats on the little one you are carrying.

Poohgirl, it must have been amazing seeing the boys in 3D, plus I love the names you have chosen.

Sabi, bedrest sounds great in theory but you must be bored silly, hope the next 4 weeks fly by for you.

Carolyn, hope you are resting up.

Summer, did you Mum fly out ok at the weekend? How is baby Anna doing?

Hi to everyone else.

Summer - Thanks for you words babe. How's everything with Anna? Have all the bad experiences of ttc become a distant memory?

Poohgirl - Congratulations on Daniel and Thomas! How gorgeous.

Pauline - 9 emby's is great! How many will you have transfered?

Another update from me. All 9 made it to today, 8 of which are looking great.

Clemo, we will transfer at least 2 but might try for 3 as if there are any left over we aren't freezing them. DH is adament this is last time. I'm going to ask for Assisted Hatching this time in the hope that it helps embies to stick in there. Did you have assisted hatching? Let us know how your next scan goes.

Have a great weekend everyone.

pauline - everything is looking very good! Will be thinking of you. Keep your PMA and keep that precious cargo of yours safe and sound!

poohgirl - congrats on your two boys and for reaching a great milestone! Hope you can really enjoy your pregnancy and that all continues to go well!

clemo - I don't think one ever really forgets or can forget all that it took to get pregnant and then actually have your dream come true and hold your baby in your arms. My DH thanks me often for not letting us give up, even though there were times he didn't want to try again. As we all know, emotionally and physically it is a hard journey. The reward is amazing, like no other joy or love you have ever felt in your life.

Little Anna is doing very well, thanks for asking. She's made great friends with so many of her stuffed animals, but she does have some favorites. She loves flirting with her daddy and is enjoying her baby swim class. She thinks watching me cook is pretty hilarious..And, she is starting to work on rolling over. Every day we have with her is a blessing. I can sit forever and just watch her sleep. She has so many "firsts" in her life, it is wonderful to see her growing and developing, even though I already miss her being a very tiny baby...

Hello to everyone and take good care of yourselves!

Pauline - Good Luck tomorrow! I hope everything goes smoothly for you :D

Clemo- Congrats on your little bean!

Poohgirl - Congrats on your two boys and holding strong. I agree with others, drink lots of water. I was originally told 60 ounces a day and then when I started having cramps at 19 weeks they upped me to 80 ounces.

Hello to everyone else. I hope everyone is doing well :)

Hi everyone,

We made it home safe & sound. Had email from clinic yesterday, no frosties, but I'm ok with it this time. So far feeling good and happy, but as you know that can change!

Carolyn & Sabi, how are you doing this week?

Clemo, are you due a scan this week? Hope all goes well

Hi to Summer & Kelly.

Hope everyone else is doing good.

Pauline xx
