Cheers

Wow what a week this has been for lots of us!

Rio- I'm so sorry for the rollercoaster ride you are going through. I sincerely hope your little bean holds on and you have a successful pregnancy.

DC- I'm so sorry it didn't work for you. :cry:

bei- WOO HOO BFP!!!!!!!!!!! What a way to find out huh? How many dpt are you again? I h ope you get better soon with the OHSS but no matter how bad you feel you've got your bean! :P

kitty_mom- Woo hoo another BFP! I am so happy for you! How many dpt were you? Yes I know that's a reoccurring question for me but I am trying to compare my beta of 426 @12dpt. Back to you...what a wonderful anniversary present. How many years are you celebrating? Congrats on your BFP and anniversary!

Pep- goodluck on your u/s tomorrow!!!!!!!

Bril- goodluck on your u/s on Friday!

AFM- I just got back from Ireland today. It was my first trip back after my ET. I was so scared to go back to work. AH the life of a flight attendant. There are so many different views on if it is safe to fly during pregnancy. My nurse at our clinic says no way to flying but my RE says it is fine. We really need the money to help pay for stuff at least for awhile. I have to go on leave at week 27 or if my OB says sooner...whatever. That's looking far in the future though.
I felt ok during the flight...really thirsty and VERY tired since our departure was 10pm EST. UGH. I let all the girls know I was expecting just incase anything should happen during the flight at least they know they have a preggers on board! LOL Most of the women I worked with on this trip were moms so they were all very understanding. Not always the case I promise you! In Ireland for 24 hrs and slept lots...flew back today. Flight back was uneventful. Still very tired but I still feel pregnant so I am hoping my little bean did not get offended at the pressure changes and standing for a couple hours at a time. Tomorrow is my second beta. I so desperately want to see that my numbers went up. I rested so much during the first 2ww that now working feels so weird. I'm so scared. Flight attendants have a very high miscarriage rate during the first trimester. Please everyone cross your fingers for me and send lots of sticky baby dust. I want it to stay so bad...as I know we all do. Again...thanks for being here. You all are what keeps me sane. :lol:

Purplefish - wow, twins!! Congrats.

Kittymom - yeah for your BFP!!!

Pep23 - good luck on U/S tomorrow.

DC - I am so sorry. I am glad to hear that you are going to try again. I really hope the next time will work for you. All the ladies on this board really deserve to get their happy ending!!

Rio - I wish your doctor would just give you an U/S...keep believing in miracles!!

Bei - Another BFP for this thread...congrats girl...what a way to find out.

AFM - Tomorrow is my transfer. I am praying that my little ones are still around when they check on them. I keep thinking they will call me in the morning and tell me to stay home because they all arrested. I know that I am not exhibiting alot of PMA, but I am a bit of a Debbie Downer...always thinking the worst things will happen. Sometimes I feel bad for my DH, because his cup is usually half-full. I think it is my defense mechanism!! Regardless, I can't WAIT until tomorrow morning. On another note...I took my son to the doctors today and found out he has pink eye and an ear ache...ugh!! That will make for one long night with a cranky baby (I would prefer to sleep through the night, so morning gets here faster)!!!

Hello everyone, hope all is well....Ive been MIA for a couple of days, just waiting till my next beta which is not until june 15....it seems weird to go your RE every couple of days then after that you dont go back until 10 days later....ugh....the waiting feels somewhat like the 2ww did...cause although i know im BFP, I still wanna see those beta numbers multiply lol! And then after that, I dont have my first U/S until june 22! just wondering, is anyone on this thread from Hawaii? maybe we go to the same RE? Anyways hoping for the best for everyone for their upcoming betas and ultrasounds! oh and Pafa, not sure if i told you this before but i had the exact same beta as you at 12dp5dt of 426!

Kamaile- Yes I saw we had the same beta. :) I go for my second in just a few minutes. I really hope it looks good. I WISH I was from Hawaii. LOL What island are you on? I have been to Honolulu many times for work but have never had the chance to visit any of the others. I love it there though. It's one of the most beautiful places on earth. I'll let you know what my beta numbers are when they call me. They are supposed to schedule my first u/s when I go in as well. :) Aloha! :wink:

I just got back from the second Dr apt. They said because it had been 3 days they wanted to see my numbers triple. It went from 426 to 1595! WOO HOO The numbers almost quadrupled. :P I guess baby didn't mind flying to Ireland the other night. Hope it doesn't mind going again tonight. LOL My first ultrasound is next Friday the 18th. I just wanted to share with you all.

Congrats to everyone on their great beta numbers!!!! This is all sooooo good!!!! My RE office did a beta at 10dp5dt and again at 12dp5dt then they dont do another until 10 days later!!!!!!!!!!! UGH this feels like a 2 ww all over again! Then i dont get my first U/S until 7 days after third beta! I dont like all this waiting at ALL! I feel like an impatient little kid! :D PAFA, I live on the island of Oahu, born and raised here...where are you located and why do you fly to Ireland? Are you a flight attendant? I agree with previous post that it sounds like you may have multiples!!! I only put 2 back and im wondering if both of them took too...if so that would be great! Hope everyone is doing/feeling great. AFM i have this nagging pain on my right side that comes and goes but my RE said its normal...and then i can also feel cramps or stretching in my uterus....does anyone else have these?? How far along is everyone? Im trying to figure out how far along i am as my RE office never really told me yet but i think i may be 5w4d along...

Kamaile-
:roll: I hear you! this is worse than the 2WW. My first US is June 18th, and I will be 6wks and 4 days. They can sometimes see a sac as early as 4 1/2 weeks. I'm trying to decide if I want to go into my OB to get an US before the 18th or just wait it out. If for some reason they didn't see anything, then I would really freak out not knowing whether or not it was just too early. I put in 3 embryos and I can't wait to see how many are in there! At least your RE gives you another Beta after 10 days...mine only does 2 and then I don't go back for 2 1/2 wks. :?
Do you feel any morning sickness or symptoms yet? I'm just tired, have to pee a lot, and a little crampy on and off. I swear I can feel and see my uterus growing!

Purple- 2 sets of twins!!!! you are truly blessed...and very very brave! :shock:
