My internet connection’s been acting up and I’m on jury duty so I don’t have the work hook up, but you’ve all been on my mind.
Reading though the latest posts, I see so much worry. I wish all of us could have the good news and security to feel the pure joy we deserve. I know it’s impossible, especially for those of us who have gone through one of more M/Cs. But, I am trying so hard to believe for all of us. I signed up for a mediation class next month. (At this point, I’ll try anything and everything.) I think earlier in this thread someone mentioned, POPO – pregnant until proven otherwise. That seems real good for all of us right now.
Good luck on beta number two tomorrow.
Welcome. Do you have a transfer date yet?
Glad you’re up and about again. I am also having bloating and gas, but I’m embracing every symptom as a sign that something’s happening.
Don’t let the worry get you. Your number looks totally normal based on the charts posted earlier. And, you’ve already made it to 6 weeks past your pervious records. Other women not in our shoes, never even get U/S this early. In some ways, it just gives us even more to obsess about. These little critters are growing at an incredible pace. By next week, you’ll likely be measuring up just fine – with a little hb to boot. Besides, after my “lab error” scare there’s only so much I trust them. POPO.
Way to go!
I’m so sorry this cycle didn’t work out for you. Your spirit of perseverance is inspiring. Hoping your dreams come true next time.
In my case, I try not to blame myself, but really we just waited too long, thinking everything had to be in place before we started trying. No one ever told me there was an expiration date. My mother had her forth child at 40. It never occurred to me I couldn’t do the same.
I also think there’s truth in your statement about our environment. I recently saw a new study that pointed to common household plastics as a cause of infertility. And that’s just one thing out of the myriad of chemicals and pollutants we encounter daily. I vacillate between thinking RE is amazing and feeling shamed that they can’t do more.
It’s okay to be angry if you need to. Scream, beat a pillow, whatever you need. But, then, pick yourself up and breathe deep and cut yourself a break.
Even the most supportive DH will never entirely relate so it can feel so lonely and painful. But, you are among friends here.
You’re out all the money anyway, so you might as well wait until the horses come in before you rip up your ticket. You know from this thread that there’s so many AF premonitions that lead to BFPs. Hang in there.
Hope your cramps subside.
I’ll be sending you good vibes for your appointment and your mother tomorrow. Jobs are a means to an end. Your future baby and your mother are your life. Don’t let an inconsiderate boss stress you out if you can help it. You’ll work it out to see her if you can and if not, at least cell phones make connections easier.
Welcome to OC land. The wait to every milestone feels huge. But, think positively, even when it feels delusional, and know you are not alone.
Thinking of you. Wishing you a speedy recovery and future success at whatever path you choose to pursue.
Your numbers look good. Try not to overthink, be positive. You came out strong and you’ll stay that way.
Any news on those betas?
